Cue the Barry Facepalm in 3..2.
The EXEMPT will continue RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE,
as predicted. SSDD.
If Harry Reid were smart, he’d let the Senate take this up and pass it just to give his vulnerable RATs an election year fig leaf even if BO vetos it.
They HELP the Rats by giving them a delay. The only delay I will accept is a permanent deferment.
Actually send it to Reid’s desk and if he doesn’t forward it for a vote, now go all out saying he was responsible for everything. Toss his sorry butt under the biggest bus out there and back up over him....again and again.
Agree. This is another pointless exercise by a clueless and conviction-less party that only wants to look like its doing something.
Way to go GOP.
Help Barry all you can !!!!
“They HELP the Rats by giving them a delay. The only delay I will accept is a permanent deferment.”
I agree with this. Instead they should be running against it. A short delay is a losing tactic if it allows the demonrats to stay in power
Anyone ever see an entire country of working surfs made to be criminals overnight by their own economic system while the elite and poor get a pass?
We are France! Anyone have any cake?
Hey...you wouldn’t want the repubs to lose the friendship of their DIMocRAT colleagues, would you? I mean...maybe they wouldn’t get invited to Georgetown parties.
Just go ahead and kill the damn thing and tell Soros the America people didn’t fall for the NWO Mark of the Beast trap...
Not necessarily. They can bring it to a vote again next year. Every time they do so, it's a smack in the kisser for the Dems. Without the penalty, Obamacare is a big loser for the insurance companies, which means sky-high premiums, which is yet another smack in the kisser for the Dems. Until the GOP has majorities in both chambers and the White House, Obamacare cannot be repealed, but merely tinkered with.
Why? Its the law. How many times has Obama or a Democrat said this?
If it is a bad law as in you need to change it now, why did you pass it in the first place?
> Actually send it to Reids desk and if he doesnt forward it for a vote, now go all out saying he was responsible for everything. Toss his sorry butt under the biggest bus out there and back up over him....again and again.
And then shoot him with silver bullets, drive a stake through his heart, and cut off his head for good measure...
Both sides play us for fools out here in real American land. So sick of the whole shebang of them in D.ecrepit C.esspool -— save for precious few conservatives.
Why? He already IS responsible for the entire mess.
Wow,,if this is repealed,,can you imagine how unhappy the oh so compliant O-bots will be? They are the ones who ran out and got coverage as soon as possible so they could arrogantly proclaim how wonderful the process is,,,,and to find out they didn’t really have to do by the deadline given,,,,
Couldn't Boehner just claim Speaker of the House Privilege and unilaterally change the law?
Will a sufficient number of O voters be affected by those economics? If so, will they be able to connect the dots?
You are probably correct about not being in a position to repeal O'care, but why facilitate a soft landing for the progressives? Why not pass a permanent delay and let them choke on it?
