Broken promise of Obamacare to haunt
Democrats’ congressional campaigns

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/1/2013 10:55:10 PM

President Obama completed an ambitious fundraising schedule for Democrats in November, but many of the congressional candidates he is trying to help are finding their election prospects next year imperiled by the president’s faulty health care law. Several polls in the past week have shown congressional Republicans pulling even or slightly ahead of Democrats in generic balloting for the midterm elections, a swing of at least 10 percentage points in less than a month. Pollsters attribute the seismic shift to the series of glaring flaws in Obamacare, most of which came to the public’s attention after the program’s rollout Oct.

Watch for threatened democrats to start funding fake Tea Party candidates to run on a third party platform, thus undercutting Republicans.

The Democrats and media are gonna do what they do. They are gonna lie, cheat, or steal to win these aCongressional races. Since they have no new tactics, ithe Republicans should be well-prepared for what us coming. It is entirely up to Republicans to get some new strategists, paint bold distinctions between the parties, and run confident, courageous and smart campaigns. It is all up to them to make Obamacare every Democrat´s worst and recurring nightmare!!!!

If voters do not let their views be known loud and clear, shame on US.

Today I read a full page ad to find out I lost my oncologist. First, insurance companies manipulated US, now Zippy manipulates them and US.

The biggest weapon they have to slam the dems with is they knew what would eventually happen once Obamacare became full bloom and they withheld it from the voters.

Nobody really even knows if Obama´s fundraisers are going to go to rank and file dems but instead to activist groups like laraza or organizing for action,to mobilize the street thugs..They get 10´s of millions worth of free publicity and spin from the MSM.

I could live a year and a half,at least on what these suckers paid for one plate of dinner.I wonder if they get to attach notes to their checks asking Obama for a favor.It´way beyond criminal how the government operates these days.They make Capone look like a choir boy.

We can´t lose. But the GOP will manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory if one or both of the following happen en masse:

1. Voter fraud (it´s the software, stupid.)

2. Voter intimidation (think New Black Panthers in groups scattered throughout swing areas of the country.)

The GOP should have been planning for all contingencies a year ago or earlier. Instead, they´re too quiet to suit me.

OPEN LETTER TO GOP: Are you prepared for massive voter fraud this time? Or will you simply ignore the software glitches in the voting machines? Are you prepared to fight dirty this time or will you cave to "moderation" in your campaign ads? Are you going to insist on compromise again? Will you allow the media to pick our candidate again? Will you listen to the Tea Party this time? (They are right, you know.)

#2, You hit the nail on the head. Republicans MUST hire better strategists and consultants because the ones advising the Republicans have been miserably inept at their jobs. A clear conservative message that offers real common sense solutions to people who are struggling will win the day. These pseudo-conservatives who merely talk to talk to get elected should not be tolerated. They are of no good use to anyone but themselves. We need real leaders who believe in their message. Enough preening popinjays willing to do or say anything to win. Give us men and women of substance who know who they are what they believe and will fight to the death to turn this nation around. Nothing less will do.

The democrats only did what they have been doing for years, lying, cheating and stealing. This time the stage was just too big. They hit people too hard where it hurts and the lies were too blatant and obvious.

Now they are forced to demand a huge income tax increase in a faltering economy to pay for something that nobody wants. Good luck with that on election day.

Republicans need to take four seats in 2014 to gain control of the Senate. We expect to lose none, and we think we have four pick-ups -- West Virginia, Montana, South Dakota and Arkansas. We may take Louisiana and North Carolina as well. And it´s possible that we could take Alaska, Iowa and even Michigan.

Republicans will control both the House and the Senate in 2015.

I fear that the spin machine will make Republican "obstructionism" the boogey. And of course the "extreme right wing" element will be specifically identified. The artful use of vocabulary will have people cowering at the thought of the next Hitler waiting to immerge from a giant burlap tea bag. That fear will itself be a tool for continuing on a well established path to genuine tyranny

This is a great deal for us to have to counter. To presume that the indisputable facts surrounding the fraud and disaster of the big government take over of the healthcare industry will speak for themselves would be a tragic miscalculation.

Our fascist senator, Pryor, is so underwater right now that he can´t move far enough to the right to pick up any non fascist, yellow dog votes. The Koch Brothers’ commercials (actually, the only form of factual information available in this state) are driving home the fact that Pryor is a hard core leftist. They are trying to paint Cotton as an elder serial killer but it isn’t getting any traction.

All the Republicans need to do is play video of zippy´s If You Like Your...lie, Pelosi´s We Have To Pass it..., and Reid´s Why Would We Want To Help Kids With Cancer...

Then state the number of times over the last 4 years that the Republicans have tried to repeal zippycare, but Reid stood in the way of any vote in the senate.

Very simple and deadly for demoncrats.

This is pure conjecture on my part, but we´ll see.

Picture a large machine with a little red light on top. The machine is full of whirling gears that are turning 24-7 but the little red light on top is strobing i.e defective. Obamacare is the machine, the gears are the framework being put into place for the Jan 1 debut and the website is the little red light. Unfortunately, all we see and are concerned about is the light.

Every day that passes gets the Democrats closer to their goal. They need to cross the Jan 1 hurdle with the law still intact. People who have been (or will be) canceled will be forced either into the system or to pay the tax for a year or two before entering. Untold numbers will be pushed into Medicaid. The bureaucratic framework will have been built, insurance companies and hospitals will have restructured and it will be all but impossible to go back to the old system.

Obama will sacrifice his poll numbers but he doesn´t care. He knew his lies would be eventually discovered and will serve as a martyr for the cause.

He may get his statue on Red Square yet.

Obaminationcare should definitely hurt the dims. They bought it; they own it. It represents the kind of big-government planning that both: a) doesn´t work and; b) fouls up peoples´ lives. The key issue will be: how many former dim voters are personally affected by it. They have to feel its incompetence and manipulativeness in their bones and marrow. Those with a functioning central nervous system already know how bad it is.

I do not believe the Republicans really want leadership at this point - they would rather let the Democrat disater continue to crumble. It leaves voters more vulnerable. The focus is on 2016 not 2014. We´ll pick up a few seats, no doubt. But, actual full blown hold over both houses? That´s just not in the Republican play book right now. Why set yourself up as a pie throwing target for the next two years in the run up to the Prez campaign season?

´imperiled by the president’s faulty health care law´.. Not so fast you chicken brained Democrats, it´s your Faulty Healthcare Law too. Democrats rammed it through both houses of Congress with NO Republicans voting for the plan. You own it, so for once own up to voting for Socialized Medicine that has never worked in any country in the world.

In a sane world, not filled with worthless Liberals who won´t take responsibility for any of their failed Legislation, every Democrat should be kicked out of office in 2014 and 2016. Both Hillary Clinton and Obama should both be in jail for murder and violation of every character law in existence. Good Grief, I´m sick of these people.

How will the Republicans screw up to 2014 elections? By listening to Karl Rove. He seems to preach that Republicans need to become Dim lites in order to attract dim votes. He doesn´t realize that that will not happen. Those who are committed to large scale government and it´s huge give-a-way programs are not going to change unless they are literally forced to get off their butts and get a job. That´s what Billy Boy did in the 90´s, with prodding from the Republicans, and it worked, up to a point. Of course, Obozo promptly discontinued those requirements. I think the way for Republicans to get elected is to be conservative, a Constitutionalist, a solid Christian, and tell the voters exactly what he/she will do in Washington. No mealy mouth promises that are going to be forgotten as soon as the polls close. Stand up and be a man/woman, and most of all, be an American. Tell the people what it means to be an American and a glimpse of real American history. The populace desperately needs to know where we came from, how we got here, and what was/is expected of us. They don´t get that in modern day schools.

After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition.

Attorney General Eric Holder must be suffering from a sort of amnesia.

Given that it only takes a Google search to find out everything one would need to know about her, including the controversial aspects of her views, it is disgustingly laughable

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.
