rhinosCowards Update: The cloture vote to end debate on the House passed Continuing Resolution passed with the aid of 25 Republican Senators. 25 Republicans voted in favor of ending debate, even though they knew that it would allow Harry Reid to attach an amendment to the House bill that would allow funding for Obamacare. Unbelievable.

Let’s put up a solid conservative challenger and primary them out of the race. Stop with the popularity contests and get behind solid people who won’t stab you in the back. Now.

This is important – thanks to these Senators, ObamaCare is one step closer to being fully implemented and when it is, no amount of imploding or dissatisfaction on the part of the people will make it go away. It will turn into single-payer when the government has to bail it out. It will be too big to fail once millions are in the exchanges. It will have to be “saved” by Obama when Emergency Rooms begin shutting down, old folks can’t get medicine and no one can get into see a doctor. Panic will set in and who knows what then.

This whole thing is playing into Obama’s long-run Alinsky playbook, guys. The Executive Orders and the rulings by Presidential fiat Obama has been willing to wield are child’s play compared to what’s coming. This is a president who on multiple occasions has blatantly ignored the separation of powers and does whatever suits him to legislation, laws, regulations, whatever.

Congress does nothing to stop him.

If the health-care system does indeed implode, fold-up and come crashing down as everyone says it will – keep in mind this is 17% of the entire economy and it will be a legitimate emergency disaster. FEMA, the Justice Department, HHS, the FBI, the ATF, the IRS and any number of Federal departments will be dispatched to keep the peace. You think I’m kidding? I’m not.

Barack Obama could very well under the veil of emergency powers declare a 10, 15 or even 20% “temporary” surcharge on all bank funds, equities, IRA’s, etc. You don’t think he’d do it if he thought there was a way? Never let a crisis go to waste, friendo.

And this is a crisis. Thanks, you guys.

I’d say to start a recall, but we have bigger fish to fry. Instead, call their offices (be civil, thanks) and tell them to not let the door hit them on the butt on their way to the cushy Health-care related lobbying job they’ve no doubt secured.
