By 22-Point Margin, Voters
Favor Obamacare’s Repeal

Weekly Standard, by Jeffrey H. Anderson

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/26/2013 3:27:25 PM

It would be a major understatement to say that Obamacare has had a bad spring. Around the time of Lincoln’s birthday, registered voters told Fox News that, by a margin of 6 percentage points (48 to 42 percent), it would “be better to go back to the health care system that was in place in 2009” than it would be “to leave the new health care law in place.” Three months later, as we head into Memorial Day, nostalgia for the good ol’ days of 2009 before Obamacare clearly took shape — showed Americans favoring efforts

It´s too late. The law is already in place and Obama isn´t exactly going to sign a repeal measure.
The American people have to learn that their votes have meaning. If you voted for Obama you voted to surrender your current health care for a system controlled by the IRS. Period.

If I recall correctly, over 75% of the American public made it vehemently clear to anyone who would listen, that they did not want, under any circumstances, Obamacare. But the morons in DC and the WH just refuse to listen to us. Come quickly 2014 so we can start to clean the mess.

Forgive me, but it´s not too late. Each and every Congress is unique and can take what action they please. The fact that Duh Won might veto a repeal only has meaning if we end up with less than 60 Senate votes.

Whatever works is right.

The house could stop their meaningless repeal votes and do a defund vote instead. Repeal votes are a fan dance. Our side lacks leadership. Rats push their agenda and the GOP says me to.

I agree with you #8.

But what you don´t understand is, the republicans do NOT control the House of Representatives. The democrats OWN Boehner; therefore, we´ll get the, "It´s not a perfect bill, but we´re only 1/3rd. of the blab, blab, blab . . .," when it comes to defunding Obamacare, and freezing the debt limit.

Contrary to the feet washing of Boehner by his supporters, the dems. are holding his affair with lobbyist Lisbeth Lyons over his head.

DISCLAIMER: I have NO personal proof that Boehner had an affair with a lobbyist, nor that he smokes or drinks. I do have pictures of him crying, however.

" Tax credits", in case the author hasn´t noticed, are gifts of one person´s tax money to another. That is what Obama proposed to "Joe the Plumber" in the 2008 campaign... to redistribute the wealth. How can anyone with two brain cells to rub together have thought that was fair?

I am an old retired codger with no money to take away, but my children and their children are not.

By what standard of ethics or morality can that be fair?

Do nothing. Let it go into force. Let the lines begin. Nine months from now the Dems will remember a 22 point deficit as the good old days. Remember, the "put the good stuff in first, don´t collect for it" strategy? That gives OC a 22 point deficit. Let it go and buy some popcorn.

The Oscars are Sunday, and I am not the first or last idiot to draw a parallel to major sporting events like the Super Bowl. Both spectacles get massive TV ratings, there´s a lot of group viewing with pithy comments and mediocre nachos, and the Cleveland Browns have never come close to winning either. This is the part where you exclaim: I am not going to watch the Oscars this year! And yet you do. Come on. You´re not fooling anybody. You´re even picking "Monsters, Inc."—though it came out 13 years ago. The Academy Awards—that´s fancypants-speak for Oscar—are a comforting if maddening

AUSTIN — After failing to reach an agreement with Travis County officials, a popular gun show is moving on. SAXET made a deal to hold their next show at the Ranch Park Events Center in Dripping Springs on March 29th and 30th. That gun show used to be held at the Travis County Expo Center, but SAXET did not agree to terms of the county’s new contract which would have required background checks on all gun sellers at their shows. In a response to KXAN News earlier this month, SAXET said they “cannot accept or enforce a contractual agreement made by two parties

Secretary of State John Kerry today warned Russian President Vladimir Putin to stay clear of the political turmoil in Ukraine, adding that the U.S. doesn´t view the international tussle over the democratic movement in Kiev as a continuation of the Cold War. “We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States. This is not ‘Rocky IV´, believe me. We don´t see it that way,” Kerry said in a reference to the popular film in which Sylvester Stallone’s character is pitted against a Soviet bully.

Massachusetts State Representatives, fed up with the lack of progress on the Justina Pelletier case, are circulating a resolution, requesting that the Department of Children and Families (DCF) begin the process of returning the teen to her parents. Justina has been in the state’s care for a year, when doctors at a Boston Hospital decided that she suffered from a somatoform disorder – an illness that is “all in her head” – and that her parents had been abusing her with the medical treatment that had been prescribed by her previous health care providers.

David Vitter (R., La.) released Wednesday. EPA employees threatened Inspector General investigators, refused to cooperate, and handed out non-disclosure agreements to other employees to keep them from being interviewed, EPA Inspector General Arthur Elkins Jr. wrote in response to a request for information by Vitter on the case. “Over the past 12 months, there have been several EPA officials who have taken action to prevent [the Office of Investigations]

GIGLIO, Italy -- Captain Francesco Schettino stepped aboard the Costa Concordia Thursday for the first time since it capsized off Italy´s coast with him at the controls more than two years ago.

The Costa Concordia has been hoisted upright and secured by salvage workers and is now sitting solidly on two underwater outcrops of rock off the coastline.

As much as US prosecutors want to “get Shorty” — Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman — America needs to stand back and give Mexico some breathing room. Guzman, widely known as “El Chapo” (Shorty), is the biggest fish ever caught in the Mexican-American drug wars, snared over the weekend in the lovely (but very violent) Pacific resort of Matzatlan in his home state of Sinaloa. Proud Mexicans compare the bust of this head of the world’s most successful narco-operation, the Sinaloa Cartel, to our Osama bin Laden kill. But El Chapo is also wanted in five US states.

ATF agents are losing track of their government-issued firearms, according to a new report, with records showing multiple instances where officers forgot their guns after leaving them on top of cars, in bathrooms and in automobile glove compartments. The incidents were catalogued in a report Wednesday by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Internal records obtained by the newspaper reportedly show ATF agents had their guns lost or stolen at least 45 times between 2009 and 2013. But the ATF sharply disputed the report, with a spokeswoman telling FoxNews.com that many of the lost weapons were later recovered. Spokeswoman Ginger Colbrun said

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation. Prominent members of the Republican establishment, including Mitt Romney and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, also sided with the bill’s opponents, who argued that the measure would have allowed people

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

The attorney for Lois Lerner blasted the House GOP for recalling the former IRS official to testify next week, saying it would only serve to embarrass her and could increase threats against Lerner and her family. Bill Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, told House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that he told committee staff in January that Lerner would continue to invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if recalled, and that she would "happily testify" if given immunity. Taylor, of Zuckerman Spaeder, said he heard nothing further from the committee until Issa wrote to him on Tuesday, saying he was hauling Lerner
