Skip to comments.Reid calls special ObamaCare meeting
Posted on 11/13/2013 1:12:32 PM PST by jazusamo
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Thursday will convene a special meeting of the Senate Democratic caucus and senior White Officials to discuss the troubled rollout of ObamaCare.
Reid on Wednesday told reporters he would not answer questions about the hundreds of thousands of insurance policy cancellations or other issues until he has further discussions with the White House.
The Senate leader said President Obama called him Tuesday evening to discuss healthcare and other issues.
Several Democrats have signed onto a proposal sponsored by Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) that would force insurance companies to let people keep their health plans if they like them.
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said he would have a better idea of what proposals Democrats will push to improve the new law after the Thursday meeting.
Republicans could scarcely contain their glee over the growing Democratic anxiety.
"Obviously panic has set in on the other side," Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said.
Scr#w you, Dingy Harry.
On another thread, I said watch Reid, McCain and Pelosi.
Obama has been kicked to the curb on this one.
The RATS are scared and that is when they are the most dangerous.
and senior White Officials...lol
“Reid on Wednesday told reporters he would not answer questions about the hundreds of thousands of insurance policy cancellations or other issues until he has further discussions with the White House.”
He’s getting his marching orders, and will then remind the communist membership of the Party Line and expect them all to toe it. Then he will come out and say:
“It’s reckless, irresponsible and extremist to let people keep their insurance policies.”
Yep, and it wouldn’t be surprising if McCain attends the meeting:)
So we inching any closer to a 2/3rds majority to overturn this thing despite Obama’s lame duck presence?
Dingy Harry drawing a line in the sand with the senate rats...
Looks like Obama’s handlers don’t want him to screw this up so they’re meeting with the Rats.
There is a special place at the bottom of the lowest septic tank for the Reid-thing.
I keep wondering if it is human and if we are really supposed to give it the same regard that we would give an amoeba.
Let's just back the Obamatanic ship up and show that iceberg who boss around here.
Okay insurance companies, you were forced to screw your policy holders by the Dems and now they want you to spend a few more millions telling folks it was just a joke, April Fool, gotcha, we didn't really mean it. So just roll over and let the Dems steamroll you again.
After all...it's not like anyone lied! How can someone possibly lie when reading from a teleprompter...a thousand fricking times!
BTW...how is that 30 million, formerly uninsured, new customers burning up your phone lines buying their first ever policies going for you?
Alexander Bolton: "Republicans could scarcely contain their glee over the growing Democratic anxiety."
But Cruz knows if the phone don't ring, it's Harry.
I hear you, I was laughing about the “White Officials.” Should have said “White House Officials.”
Sen. Reid us meeting with Vice President Biden to discuss Iran at 3 pm, according to Reid.
The ACA is going to fail if they don’t cancel their individual policies due to a lack of broad base. On the other hand, the Dems are going to fail if they don’t keep their promise that if you like your policy you can keep your policy. Talk about being between a rock and a hard spot?
Maybe they should have read the bill before signing it. LOL.
Without the lie of “you can keep your plan and doctor”,
Obamacare would not be law,
and Obama would not be president after Jan, 2012.
Yep, he’s holding up the leftist agenda of the enemedia.
Reid just wants to somehow placate the people and keep them from complaining until after the next election cycle. They are screaming for that kind of action rather than actually looking into and repealing this unfair and unworkable law, and replacing it with something that makes sense. Look for pretend solutions magnified and glorified by the main stream media.
Look for catch phrases aimed at the low information voter. IMHO, this power hungry bunch has no intention of repealing the Affordable Care Act.
bh0 will call for Reid not to go ‘wobbly,’ but to stand fast and teach those ignorant masses who actually runs this country and is giving them what they wanted when they re-elected him.
As bad as things are getting I don't think it is going to be killed. The GOP-e represents mid to large size businesses. I believe these business interests are now happy to be relieved of providing healthcare coverage to employees. Talking with a property management executive a couple weeks ago I was told this company plans on giving employees a stipend/bonus egual to their health insurance cost minus the tax penalty when the employer mandate kicks in.
Nice Jimmy Buffett reference. :-)
hip waders for all the BS
Let them die on this!
STAY OUT of it GOP.
This is a Bi-Partisan meeting-—right??
How do you “un-cancel” cancelled health insurance? I mean don’t these things need to be negotiated and approved?
That would be no surprise—you are right.
“So we inching any closer to a 2/3rds majority to overturn this thing despite Obamas lame duck presence?”
Biden and Reid in the same room.
They should meet in a stall so the Horse dung doesn’t contaminate the rest of the place.
I wonder if this "meeting" will result in some Democrat senators tromping up to the White House, as the Republicans did when they decided Nixon was killing their "brand."
Excellent advice...The implosion of the Rats is just beginning, it’ll be fun watching them finish the suicide.
I am sure it’s how to apologize to Ted Cruz.
That would be racist.
Great point...I believe with great difficulty and probably not at all, the Rats are finally starting to realize it.
WHY, pray, tell, do they not call this (Obamacare) what it is: FRAUD?
This is why you don’t push legislation unilaterally with no input from the other political party... Dems got greedy and gobbled up the whole pie, now they’ve got diarrhea and are hoping the Republicans will help clean up their shit... Republicans need to not be a part of any legislative action to help it, only to eliminate it.
are they going to make the insurance company’s give back all the canceled policy’s? Ain’t gonna happen. All this will be for show, some lame legislation making it seem as they are trying to do something to save their rear ends.
Man, what I’d give to be a fly on the wall...
If they hadn’t lied about keeping your doctor and your plan,
Obamacare would not be law,
and Obama would not be president.
How are they going to fix a law they have never read?
See, you have to be in the ""Special Club" as clearly demonstrated
by Obama's favorite fluffer.
“what Id give to be a fly on the wall...”
you beat me to it!
What’s John Boy Edwards up to these days?
Planning a comeback tour to run in 16?
I don’t give a flying “UKNOW!” The fact is, it began as a scam to get votes, it continued as a fraud, and it is now coming back on them. WHO THE HELL HAS THE GONADS TO CALL IT WHAT IT IS and start the prosecution?
At least then, the impeachment articles would be held up. Sheesh! I am so EFFING tired of cowardice!
Thanks for the link and the heads up.
