The Republicans love ObamaCare, enabling and funding it through 2016. And why not – it’s the greatest thing since Democrats had Watergate to pound Republicans with.
Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, McConnell and Co., puff out their chests with their cries for repeal and the dozens of phony House “Repeal ObamaCare” bills, knowing Harry Reid will never take it up for debate – much less a vote in the Senate.
They’re safe knowing even if Republicans take the Senate in 2014 – Obama is still President and will veto any effort to repeal his signature legislation.
Article One gives the House the authority and the duty to defund the ACA – but… hey look – cows!
Forget that Americans continue to suffer and die – that’s right, die – the Republicans are exempt from ObamaCare and boy, do they want it – for very different reasons than Democrats have always wanted socialized medicine – but believe me – Republicans want it!
Immigration reform – aka: Amnesty? Same thing:
Democrats want the future votes, Republicans want suppressed wages. I don’t care what passes – if Louie Gohmert gets his border security, Marco Rubio gets his English proficiency requirement or there are 100 provisions to overcome any and all claims that it’s hidden Amnesty – it’s Amnesty. Why?
President Obama will not enforce any of it, this we know. Republicans will do nothing when Obama acts unilaterally in violation of the Separation of Powers. This we know.
Anything that passes is Amnesty.
Federal spending? Just a short 8 years ago, do you know which Party was the most profligate spenders of Federal dollars, the biggest deficit growers, the largest debt makers in the history of the Republic?
I’ll give you a hint: Add two more letters to “Republic” and you’ll know it was the Republican Party of 2000-2006 when they had majorities in the House, the Senate and George W. Bush was President.
They didn’t eliminate the Department of Education, Energy, the EPA, IRS, DHS, or any other agency of our ever-expanding, ever-bloated centralized government. They didn’t pass a FAIR tax or a FLAT tax or reform entitlements – hell, they created new ones!
It was only Pelosi, Reid and Obama who bailed them out of being the worst stewards of the country of all time..
What’s my point? Republicans and Democrats love big government, ObamaCare, bailouts, spending, TARP, the Department of Education, War, Amnesty.. and each other. Now they want your vote in 2014.
Just put us back into power, they say – the Senate, a bigger majority in The House, the White House in 2016 and they’ll get this thing straightened out!!
I have a question for all of you: Where is the evidence that if Republicans get back in power, they’ll start doing the right thing?
Oh, things will be different this time? Really? Here’s some feel good news for you delusional Republicans: Jeb Bush will get top billing when he, Chris Christie, and other potential 2016 presidential candidates are hosted by Sheldon Adelson for an exclusive Republican gathering next week in Las Vegas at billionaire casino mogul’s airport hangar.
Yes, that would be pro-Amnesty Jeb Bush who just announced his undying support of Common Core (I think he’s also in good with the Bush family), and Chris Christie who supports.. I don’t know what he supports, honestly.
I don’t know about Adelson, Jeb or Chris, but the Republican establishment currently enabling Democrats despise conservatives and the Tea Party – this we know from their own words.
They raise money from labor unions, the Chamber of Commerce, big, pro-Amnesty Corporations and Super-PAC’s who say flat-out their mission is to destroy conservative and Tea Party candidates and any Republican candidates who dare run against squishy, Obama enablers.
These are the same Karl Rove types who praise Ronald Reagan as the greatest Republican ever.
Don’t be fooled: They despised Reagan too. They hated him and even though you put them back in the House majority in 2010 – they hate you too. Rove was on the wrong side of the Reagan Revolution, he was wrong in 2008, 2010, 2012 and he’s wrong now. Yet, he’s on Fox News every four seconds? What happened to my Party – the GOP?
.. I don’t know, but at some point they just said, “if you can’t beat ’em – join ’em.”
