People in KY wouldn’t vote for Lincoln, but they seem to think McC represents them.

Maybe we should blame AL for McC; that’s where he comes from but never mentions its.

-——Obamacare will never be repealed. Please, someone tell me I am wrong.-——

Here is your answer....name one, just one federal program this massive that has been repealed or even defunded in the last 50 years...

Mark Steyn is so on the money here.

The totally wrong people get elected to office.

I really don’t want the GOP to pick my next president.
I believe they will make sure Hillary wins.

You're wrong. It will likely be replaced by single payer sometime in the next few decades.

Mark, Mark, Mark! You're such an ingenue ....

Or maybe you honestly think the American People would implode if they knew how vicious, how coldly self-seeking and cynical their leadership is -- and here I specifically reference the E-GOP.

They sold out back in 2007 on health care because S&P 500 CEO's were on their backs day and night, raving and caving about their employee healthcare premiums.

Obamacare is the FIX, not the "problem". Of course the E-GOP isn't going to fix the FIX !

“No reason to believe GOP will ever repeal Obamacare”

Yup. Pretty much the same thing on the balanced budget. You might remember when the gop was out of power way back when, they talked a lot about a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. Then they ended up in power. Both houses of Congress and the Presidency.

And so ended gop talk of a balanced budget amendment.

Gee, Chucky Schumer told a nasty tale about someone he hates and now YOU choose to believe schmucky Chucky?

But, hey, you’re not alone.

Anthony Weiner trusted Schumer, too.

Sometimes I wonder what the Obama-kiddies will do once they figure out that Obama (and Schumer) “bought” their votes with money stolen from those kids’ own futures...

It could be a GOP landslide in 2016!

True, and what's ironic about the shutdown is that the GOP have no plans to do anything
once Zerocare is actually fixed. They've accepted it and are just bitching and whining
for show to their voter base. Cruz has a plan but he's slowly being shut out of the MSM reports.
Expect to hear less about him as he ramps it up. Hope I'm wrong.

Mark Steyn: No reason to believe GOP will ever repeal Obamacare

Well gee, Mark, then what can be done? Is there any alternative left? Is there anything you can do, in particular, with your bully pulpit, to change things for the better? Any information you can get out to the public, since you love America so much?

Think hard.

Stick it up your Obama. If you didn’t hear the show (and Mark Levin certainly is ripping McConnell, and rightly so) and you don’t think McConnell is a sellout, you are not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

But hey, keep believing the McCains and McConnells, the Lindsey Grahams and the Karl Roves.

Or you can wake up like the rest of us.

Chucky Schmucky wasn't lying. See for yourself. Or do your own research. McConnell is a sellout.

"Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell has floated a proposal for a couple years now as a last-chance way to avert a crisis and allow the president to raise the debt ceiling without congressional approval, with Congress having the ability to strip that authority with a two-thirds veto — and that’s sort of what the bill to be voted on tonight provides for (see pages 24 ff. of the bill)."

The sooner you realize the GOP is selling us out, the better off you will be.

“Not with a bang but a whimper”
In 7th grade in a Catholic grammar school in the 40’s this nun reflected on GK Chesterton’s observation. Her comment went over my head at the time and she had as much of a chance or the means to make the changes needed as Stein does. All they can do is make you aware of the reality. Nothing gets changed by whimpering.

He’s right.

If they wanted to stop it, they would.

Congress then deletes the government databases filled with health information about individuals,

Dream on they will want to use this information for the same reasons they used captured NAZI and Japanese doctors that practiced the most evil of medical experiments.

Mark is right on except he seems to be under the illusion that the GOPe was ever opposed to government control of health care.

Nope, can't do that, wouldn't be prudent.
