Meet the 13 Senate Democrats who supported ObamaCare, and are up for re-election in 2014
cfp ^ | 10/28/13 | herman cain

Posted on 10/28/2013 8:03:16 AM PDT by bestintxas

Remember way back in the distant past - like, two weeks ago - when every Democrat on Capitol Hill was united in the determination that ObamaCare must not be changed, not be delayed, not be modified in any way, because to do so would be a dirty, nasty, right-wing Republican trick?

My. How things change. Dana Bash of CNN tweets that the 13 Democrat senators up for re-election in 2014 are suddenly singing a very different tune:

new: senior dem source tells me to expect every sen dem running in 2014 to back @JeanneShaheen proposal to delay #ACA enrollment deadline

— Dana Bash (@DanaBashCNN) October 23, 2013

Well that’s nice of them, but these same 13 Democrats voted in 2009 to create this monstrosity in the first place. And don’t forget how that went down either. Remember that the Senate passed a version of the bill that everyone knew had major problems, taking advantage of its 60-seat, filibuster-proof majority to push the bill through. Then Senator Ted Kennedy died, and was replaced by Republican Scott Brown. That meant the Senate could no longer stop a filibuster, which it would need to do to pass any improved bill coming out of conference after the House passed its version. The only way at that point to pass ObamaCare to have the House pass the Senate bill with no changes, then abuse reconciliation rules to pass the fixes that were needed.

Abusing power is something Harry Reid is only too happy to do.

So every one of these 13 Democrats is responsible for creating the mess in which we now find ourselves. Their sudden conversion to the need for a delay is very nice, but it’s not enough. If you live in any one of these states, I urge you to vote

If the Minnesotans are dumb enough to elect a nobody like Al Franken to the Senate in the first place — he will probably be there for 30 years.

1. It would be absolutely hysterical if each and everyone of them lost. Good chance Obama would resign instead of getting impeached.

2. Would love to be a fly on the wall in WH on election night.

Didn’t some research show that he actually didn’t win? A good number of his votes came from excons, etc and had the vote not been certified so early, he would have been sent home?

Don’t replace them with RINO’s is all I ask but I suspect 13 fake conservatives emotionalizing their opposition to Obamacare have already been picked by the GOPe.

We need to know their names like Mead Treadwell in Alaska for example, the next Lisa Murkowski.

In Arkansas, Congressman Tom Cotton voted with Boehner and the leadership on “getting the government started” which meant funding Obamacare.

And the list goes on.......

Those 7 would give the Republicans the majority in both houses?

It’d be comical to have Cruz as the Senate Leader. I think Obama would poo his pants being forced to debate him, 1 on 1. I’m thinking PPV events.

We didn’t. Stuart Smalley stole that election from Norm Coleman fair and square, with help from Minnesota’s Communist Secretary of State Mark Ritchie.

Levin is retiring thank God.

The democrat running to replace him is representative Gary Peters who is trying to play middle of the road moderate and Republican Terri Land is former MI SOS (And seems to be attracting tea party support).

The race is still pretty quiet considering how far off it is but there are anti Peters ads running already and from what I’ve seen Land and Peters are pretty much even right now.

New election laws in Michigan may play a major role.

I agree, and I don’t see a standout to challenge him either. Also, fraud is a MAJOR factor. Remember how he beat Coleman.

I’d say we’re actually more likely to topple Merkley than Franken

Immigration Bypass is just another Obama Smokescreen to keep Boehner distracted from appointing Special Prosecuters for the role of CIC Obama in the Benghazi Murders, the National Spy Apparatus (NSA), the IRS Gestapo Tactics, and Media confiscation tactics by AG Holder.

Only very stupid RINOs such as Boehner, Cantor, Ryan and Issa are dumb enough to be lead around by their noses by the Marxist Obamanation administration.

_________

Now that 300 million Americans are being secretly spied on by the Rouge Marxist Obamanation Administration, there are thus 300 million Americans that do not trust Obama.

Is this massive distrust enough for the US Congress to hire a Special Prosecutor to investigate this National Security Spy Apparatus?

What more does it take for our gullible, lethargic RINOs to draw up the Articles of Impeachment for Obama?

Do they not realize that the RINOs are in control of the US House of Representatives?

They have the Partisan DUTY to be a “Check and Balance” by use of their duty to Impeach a Constitutionally offending White House Resident.

Now that 70 Million French Citizens, and like number of German, and Spanish citizens have been spied on by the Rogue Marxist Obamanation Administration, there are well over 100 million European Citizens who do not trust Obama.

As head of the Rogue Marxist Obamanation Administration, this loss of trust is the sole responsibility of B. Hussein Obama.

Should Impeachment Proceedings begin in the US Congress to Impeach for Dereliction of Duty “B. Hussein Obama,” aka Barry Soetoro, a legal citizen of the Sovereign Nation of Indonesia?

If the American Citizens do not trust Obama, and our main European Allies do not trust Obama, then what more is the US Congress waiting for before starting Obama Impeachment Proceedings?

_________________________

And now for the REAL Enemy: The Democrats:

How sweet it would be to tie, in the minds of the Low Information Voter, the Democrats who voted for Nationalizing 1/6 th of the US Economy to this Democrat Cash Cow, Mandatory Insurance Tax Law!

The Leftstream Media currently controls the minds of the Low Information Voter by controlling the powerful COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION POLLING CORPORATION, commonly known as COP-O-PC, pronounced “Cop O’PC.”

Right now Obama can do anything that he wants to do because of the “White Guilt” of the Leftstream Media, and a “White Guilt” mentality of jelly-spined Congressional Democrat’s Republicans.

Thus, all of the focus is directed to the incompetence of the staff that Obama has hired to protect him from knowing anything about the signature Law that he is so proud of.

It is the perfect “I know nothing” do-loop designed for gullible, jelly-spined, Red Ink, Congressional, Democrat’s Republicans such as Susan Collins, McCain, Graham, McConnell, Cornyn, Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, and New York’s Peter King.

Link Democrats to Obama’care,’ and maybe the Low Information voter will remember that it was the Democrats that wrote it, voted for it, and then it was Democrat Reid who alone shut down the US Federal Government in 2013 to keep Marxist Obama’care’ from being defunded by cowardly, Cave-In, Congressional RINOs.

The Democrats have wanted this ultimate-control, Marxist Law for nearly 100 years, and now that the Democrats have rammed it down our throats we Conservatives must see to it that the Democrats are clearly held responsible for the great harm that this failed Law has already done to America.

Exactly. I am very encouraged by the even polling in Michigan for Land. She has good name ID, and signed the pledge to support Cruz.

Peters is a poor campaigner. He’s no Bruce Braley. Then again, Michigan did re-elect Debbie Stabmenow by a wide margin... but with Hoekstra being the opposing candidate, that’s no surprise.

I really hope Snyder lends a hand. He’s done a lot for Michigan, and the Democrap voter base in Detroit has thankfully drained like the swamp that it is.

If the candidates opposing them are GOPe certified, then any Conservative that votes for them is voting for someone who will NOT represent their will; in other words "the enemy". We are better off in the long run letting a dyed in the wool Dem win the seat than let a GOPe candidate take it.

” “I was all for Obamacare,” wrote a young woman complaining about a 50 percent rate hike related to the health care law, “until I found out I was paying for it.”

To paraphrase this for the senators, “I was for Obamacare until my supporters found out they were paying for it.”

There has been a purge of ineligible voters going on. There is also a new law that puts a microscope on traditionally problem areas with the GOP looking over their shoulders in Detroit. The white guy won the Detroit Mayoral primary because the state stepped in and made them return the 40% of votes they took from the guy. We also have a voter ID law.

People are actually being charged and convicted for fraud these days.

Detroit will vote democrat but they won’t do it with 200,000 more votes than voters.

You definitely ain’t wrong.

But, I’d rather have 13 fake conservatives in the Senate than 13 Harry Reids.

Even if they’re RINO’s, with the majority they can hide amongst the masses and probably wouldn’t feel as compelled to “compromise”, ALL the time

John Cornyn got to hide behind his friends here.

Remember, he voted for cloture and against Ted Cruz, that gave Harry Reid the ability to put funding back into the CR for Obamacare plus the Kentucky Kickback!!

Cornyn is spending millions already 're-assuring' folks he's a good Conservative.
