Remember reading that somewhere.

I didn't change one of the dates accurately, so will just repost again.

September 2003: Then-Treasury Secretary John Snow testifies before the House Financial Services Committee to recommend that Congress enact "legislation to create a new Federal agency to regulate and supervise the financial activities of our housing-related government sponsored enterprises" and set prudent and appropriate minimum capital adequacy requirements.

September 2003: Then-House Financial Services Committee Ranking Member Barney Frank (D-MA) strongly disagrees with the Administration's assessment, saying "these two entities, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are not facing any kind of financial crisis. The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing." (Stephen Labaton, "New Agency Proposed To Oversee Freddie Mac And Fannie Mae," The New York Times, 9/11/03)

(Both statements were made in September 2003. And it'd be great if a few liberals commented on both.)

"Republicans Will Win The Government Shutdown PR Battle If They Promise Voters Private Jets

Assuming a federal government shutdown come October, there’s a surefire way for the Republicans to win the ensuing war of words. Without a hint of hyperbole, they should promise voters a future of widespread private jet ownership.

The above proclamation is easy to laugh at, many surely will, but when Karl Friedrich Benz created the first gasoline powered car in 1885, it was exponentially crazier to contend then that cars would be a middle class good within 25 years. But by the 2nd decade of the 20th century the once inconceivable to own luxury that was the automobile had become rather commonplace. Thanks to Henry Ford’s aggressive investment and reinvestment of profits into perfecting mass production of the auto, gasoline-powered cars rather quickly became ubiquitous.

Just the same, if someone had said in 1903 (when the Wright brothers first took flight) that flying would within the 20th century become a pedestrian and often bothersome necessity, that person too would have been laughed out of the room. But with government on all levels consuming exponentially less capital in the early part of the 20th century, huge technological leaps were taking place thanks to extra capital in the private sector funding all manner of commercial experimentation. To deny the correlation between small government and big private sector advances is to ignore basic economics.

More on private flying in a little bit, but first it should be said that the Republicans, even though Obamacare is dying before our eyes of its own myriad contradictions, must stand firm on defunding it anyway. They must do this even if it means a shutdown of the federal government.

Wise political minds have made very apparent their view that a GOP-authored shutdown would amount to political suicide, but it seems the thinkers inside the Establishment have misread the electorate. Put plainly, a Republican Party that deserved rebuke after the George W. Bush economic disaster was given a very probationary second chance in 2010...."
Liberals want to erase from history the 2010 midterm shellacking!!!

Half of the population spends little or nothing on health care, while 5 percent of the population spends almost half of the total amount.
Good point!

Let the 5 percent feel the pain and pay for it themselves!

Why should the 95% pay for the irresponsible 5%?

First of all, the SEIU which paid millions to support Obama is still very supportive of the Affordable Care Act. They are even pitching in for "outreach and enrollment efforts across the country."
Now, the AFL-CIO is another matter and it has to do with their non-profit multiemployer health plans and their belief that "denying eligibility for health benefits to immigrants on the path to citizenship is not only cruel, but also short-sighted given the important connections between coverage expansion and controlling the growth of health costs."
They also feel that "non-profit multiemployer plans should have access to the ACAs premium tax credits and cost-sharing reductions on behalf of working families, just as for-profit insurance companies will" even though these plans already receive tax breaks.
They believe that "the employer responsibility rules should be fixed by applying a full employer penalty for failing to provide affordable comprehensive coverage to workers who average 20 or more hours per week and adding an employer penalty on a pro rata basis for employees who work fewer than 20 hours per week."
They further believe that "employers that attempt to shirk their responsibility in its entirety by dumping low-income workers into Medicaid should be penalized."
http://www.aflcio.org/About/Exec-Council/Conv...
Still think you are on the same page as the AFL-CIO? I seriously doubt it.
Bullshit.

The union plans are "Cadillac" plans subject to taxation.

The fact is that the DemoKKKrats were in such a hurry to pass something that they wrote a lousy law.

actually, it is within the power of Congress to decline to fund any program they choose...
Under House rules, members cannot legislate on appropriations bills. Defunding the Affordable Care Act legislates by preventing mandatory spending from going into effect. Can't be done unless the House waives their own rule which certainly wouldn't be beneath them. No telling how low they will stoop.
