I didn’t know the government was in the business of breeding dogs. But I think they have bred a Bulldog with a Shihtzu and they have come up with BULL SHIT. The following comes from various places round the web. I am not responsible if it either makes you get a clue or have trouble with your love life. Here goes …
There is a certain dignity in admitting one’s situation. The Democrats still reside in the ridiculous mindset that the debacle surrounding Obamacare can be turned around, that by saying the right things and refocusing the discussion, they can somehow make this colossal failure into a modest victory.
I don’t know if it’s merely outright denial or a stubbornness that borders on insanity; either way, the tone-deaf talking heads of the Democrat Party are making their situation worse by the minute.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid joined in on Thursday and insisted that criticisms concerning the atrociously unpopular healthcare overhaul are “jokes.”
Sen. Reid stated that that Republicans, in order to save time, just “number their one through 50 criticisms of Obamacare” and yell out a number when they want to reference a specific complaint.” “We’ve heard things so many times, we would immediately laugh because basically they’re jokes,” Reid said.
“It’s too bad that the Republican leader and many of his colleagues want to keep fighting an old fight. Four years ago we passed the health reform bill, four years ago. The president signed it, the Supreme Court upheld it. It is the law of the land,” Reid continued.
It’s amazing how Democrats continually tout Obamacare as the “law of the land,” despite the fact the president continues to change the law whenever he darn well feels like it. Further, it needs to be noted that immigration laws and the Defense of Marriage Act were laws of the land as well, but the Obama Administration has continued to disregard and torpedo “laws of the land” with which they disagree. Laws have no meaning if the King can just change them or disregard them at will.
Still pretending as if the massive Obamacare failures are but minor hiccups, Reid laughably claimed,
“Of course, we want to make it better, and certainly with what’s going on with the rollout of the web site, we need to do that. I wish our Republican colleagues would stop trying to scare people out of participating in this program.”
Neither the Republicans nor the Tea Party are doing anything to scare anybody; Obamacare is a disaster of epic proportions and though the media has worked very hard to keep that truth from the people, the American people have realized that the with the lies, the millions of cancellation letters, the website debacle and the sticker shock from the price increases, Obamacare is just a bad deal for everybody. It would be a much simpler task for Reid and others to lay the blame at the GOP’s feet, but nobody’s buying Obamacare because the whole program is fatally flawed at every level.
Reid may call these criticisms “jokes,” but Americans aren’t laughing. This flippant attitude is exactly why the President’s approval rating is nosediving. America is tired of being lied to and people are tired of Democrats pretending like Obamacare can be saved.

Remember when Nancy Pelosi said:
“We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it”
A physician called into radio show and said:
“that is the definition of a stool sample”.
That pretty well sums it up.)
Got through the Supreme Court only because it was a TAX?
“To the contrary, the justices held the “Affordable” Care Act unconstitutional as Obama presented it to the American people: namely, as a legitimate exercise of Congress’s power to regulate interstate commerce.”
“To sustain this monstrosity, Chief Justice John Roberts had to shed his robes and put on his legislator cap. He rewrote Obamacare as a tax — the thing the president most indignantly promised Americans that Obamacare was not.”
“Contrary to Obama’s latest dissembling, the Supreme Court’s decision is far from an imprimatur. The president insisted that Obamacare was not a tax, famously upbraiding George Stephanopoulos of the Democratic-Media Complex for insolently suggesting otherwise. Yet, the narrow Court majority held that the mammoth statute could be upheld only as an exercise of Congress’s power to tax — i.e., contrary to Obama’s conscriptive theory, it was not within Congress’s commerce power to coerce Americans, as a condition of living in this country, to purchase a commodity, including health insurance.”
“Therefore, Obamacare is revenue-raising tax legislation, originated in the Senate in violation of the Constitution.
This has the Obama administration and its Justice Department scrambling. House conservatives, led by Representative Trent Franks (R., Ariz.), are pushing an Origination Clause challenge in the federal courts.”
