Skip to comments.Wonkbook: The GOPís Obamacare chutzpah [JournOlist talking points]
Posted on 10/24/2013 7:23:24 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
How about House Republicans who refused to appropriate the money the Department of Health and Human Services said it needed to properly implement Obamacare?
How about Senate Republicans who tried to intimidate Sebelius out of using existing HHS funds to implement Obamacare?
How about congressional Republicans who refuse to permit the packages of technical fixes and tweaks that laws of this size routinely require?
How about the coordinated Republican effort to get the law declared unconstitutional?
How about the dozens of Republican governors who refused to take federal dollars to expand Medicaid?

Repeal this POS.
And any tactic that brings about that happy day is freakin' fine w/ me.
The unified needs to be just that...”You Own This”.
“We said it was a bad idea. We said it could not be implemented. We said it would raise costs. We said it would cause businesses to cut job, cut hours and cut health car policies. We said insurance companies would drop coverage for millions of people. We were right on every single account.”
Over half a BILLION taxpayer bucks wasn’t enough for the cretins hired by their affirmative action boss to figure out a web site??? Puhleeze. Even for an ignorant Leftist, with no marketable skill other than being a state propagandist, this is a new low.
Good grief. Another homo Leftist with his brain lodged in his crotch.
Nonetheless, what you see here is the Democrat's emerging strategy. Trust me, Obamacare is going to be an abysmal failure. Everyone pretty much knows this and the Democrats are getting mighty worried because they see the writing on the wall too. So, Klein and Media Matters, etc., are now laying the groundwork to blame Republicans for Obamacare’s failure.
If only Republicans did this or funded that.
If only Republicans hadn't made it their mission to destroy Obamacare this would have and could have worked.
If only Ted Cruz didn't....
Mark my words, Democrats know this thing is a disaster waiting to happen so they need to start blaming Republicans for what is sure to come.
Once again, the DC GOP establishment needs to be reminded that the Democrats will NEVER accept responsibility and reverse course. It is a pipe dream to ‘let this collapse on it’s own’. It will never be removed under that scenario because the left and the media will use the exact same tactics to push through more ‘reforms’ and ‘fixes’ to make the situation even worse.
They’ll shift blame and move the goal posts and blame the GOP for not fixing it. The battle is to REPEAL and REMOVE GOVERNMENT BARRIERS TO HEATH CARE. Draw a clear line and charge forward on offense.
"Heres the next conservative argument against President Barack Obama's health care law: Its causing employers to shift full-time workers into part-time. Too bad its wrong."
Use Opposition in a sentence
/ˌɒpəˈzɪʃən/ Show Spelled [op-uh-zish-uhn] Show IPA noun
1.the action of opposing, resisting, or combating.

4.( sometimes initial capital letter ) the major political party opposed to the party in power and seeking to replace it.

Only among inside-the-Beltway groups in Washington (including Republican ones) does "opposition" mean "buy knee pads" and "bend over".

Turd gets to eat turd sandwich. The world watches.
A few weeks ago, they literally shut down the government because they refused to pass a funding bill that contiained money for Obamacare.
The government was not "literally" or even figuratively shutdown, three quarters of the government remained open. Whoever shut down the closed portions it was not the Republicans, those decisions were made by the administration and quite arbitrarily.
In any event it was the President and the Democrats in the Senate who shut down the government because they refused any bill which funded the government without Obamacare.
What about the 30 million wood regulations that have already been adopted administratively to administer the law? I guess they don't really know how to talk about the truth.
Yeah, how about that....
Let me guess- he is also openly gay? (I just needed to see the hat)
OMG! President Hussein Zeros premier program Obamacare has gone all Humpty Dumpty! Can all the kings horses, all the kings men (& women) and all the kings media spend even more billion$ to get the fix? President Obama and his Democrat and media fellow travelers regularly spit venom at the rich but are all in the 1% themselves! In a weird “rusty” irony... the alleged defenders of us common folk... are the MOST 1% friendly government in our history! The only group who these last five years, have thrived are the despised tip-top media/political/corporate class (aka: one-percenters)! Many given FED funny money (Qantitative Easing) by the gazillions that puts even the most brazen welfare queens to SHAME!
Anyone who can look past the rhetoric and beyond what he says to what he does knows this! Yet so many of his blindly loyal followers seem to prefer hating the Tea Party/GOP rather than loving the country!?!? They see only the PROMISE... denying the grim REALITY of yet another failed and catastrophic socialist experiment. Socialism works great in the faculty lounges of the ivory towers of academia, but results only in suffering of the very people the president claims to champion.

Good grief. Another homo Leftist with his brain lodged in his crotch.
Actually I think his brain is lodged somewhere else.
Hopefully after fixing the websites, Obama will get around to lowering those sea levels and healing the planet like he promised.
Fascists just doing what they do. When their heavy handed, iron fisted, central government dictats fail, they must blame their political opponents. After the blame begins to be accepted, then it is easy to demonize and eventually the public will begin to clamor for action. What action will be deemed necessary for the common good? Punishment of course!
I am beginning to understand the Democrats fixation on high speed rail! All the quicker to the gulag for us evil political opponents!
