John Boehner has got to be one of the most obtuse politicians to ever walk the planet. Just when you thought he could not get any worse, he has.
What has he done right now?
He has issued an edict. Republicans are not to gloat if the Supremes do the right thing and strike down Obama.
John, who the hell made you king?
Republicans should celebrate the defeat of Obamacare.
Let’s be blunt. Obamacare is evil. There is no other word to describe it.
Obamacare is the step that the Party of Treason must take in order to force a single payer healthcare system on America.
What is wrong with single payer? Well, all of the payments will come from the government. It will destroy innovation and the effectiveness of the healthcare system.
As Britain or Canada how well that is working out. In Britain, not only are many Britons reduced to pulling their own teeth and often have to wait over a year just to see a specialist.
Obamacare is evil for one major reason. It puts the power of life and death for the average citizen in the hands of the state.
Single payer means the government will decide what bills are paid. They will decide what healthcare Americans get. The government will ration healthcare. This is what is happening in socialist nations right now.
Obamacare and single payer changes the relationship between the American citizen and his government. No longer will this be a government of the people, by the people and for the people, it will be a government of the bureaucrats.
Our national values will no longer be those of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
We will be the slaves of the state. We will be the property of the state because healthcare will be rationed.
Government bureaucrats will decide what treatment you get. Unfortunately, many will be treated like an old truck, when the owner decides a new front end is too expensive and it is just time to get rid of it.
Now, our government will decide if we are worth repairing, based on cost, our value to society and how much money is in the budget. If you think insurance companies are bad now, wait until you see Obamacare.
If the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare, it is something to celebrate. It is a defeat for evil. Does anyone really think Obama and the Party of Treason will not be celebrating if the Supreme Court destroys freedom in America by upholding Obamacare?
Perhaps Boehner does not want Republicans celebrating the demise of Obamacare because he is already working on Romneycare and that could be used against him.
Could it be?
Meanwhile, here is a memo to the Republicans.
If we win, celebrate.
Daves: It appears that, based upon later comments, you and I form some kind of subversive group here, plotting the overthrow of TP Nation. According to one poster, our type of radical subversives travel in pairs. Is is my imagination, or is there always a plot of some kind being hatched by the left? I don't know about you, but my intent was a bit of open discourse and exchange of ideas. Looks like it didn't work out so well.
Aw Dennis don't go away mad...............
I'm far from angry Juls. Somewhat amazed, yes. Do you ever wonder why the Tea Party gets so much bad press? I don't think it's because you believe in strict interpretation of the constitution or smaller government.
"Bad press" from the media we currently have is actually a badge of honor.
Amen JC......and Juls.....I got nuttin but a BIG hug for Dennis!
Well good luck ever getting a Tea Party candidate into office. Shrill, rigid and mean doesn't play very well with voters. How's that Bachmann thing been working out? From what I can see here, no one anywhere can measure up to the TP credo, so who are you ever going to elect?
here's a list of Tea Party activity in American politics today......
read'em an weep, sonny boy!
Dennis, if you're going to be a shill for the liberal cause then you really need to pay more attention to the talking points and get your terminology right. It's not mean - it's mean-spirited.
John- Looking at the list, superficially it's impressive. But once you remove the names that are running, it gets quite a bit shorter. Then there's the legislators who have pretty low favorability with their constituents who have come to see them as part of the stalemate problem. And finally the governors, who are all pretty much at the bottom of favorability rankings nationally. So I think it remains to be seen how successful the Tea Party really is until the coming election cycle.
Actually, the favorability exceeds that of the entire congress as a whole. And when the polling is done by nonbiased sources, the numbers are even more impressive.
There you go again JC - screwing everything up with a rational interpretation of the facts. You really should work on that.
So JC- What you're saying is, Tea Party Governors have a favorability rating just north of 17%? My point isn't about beating up the Tea Party. My point is that just like inflexible, left wing ideologues, the Tea Party shoots itself in the foot when it comes to anything bi-partisan. It doesn't help the country or the cause.
