Barack Obama, our next President

It will STILL be cheaper for many to go to a docs-even once a month for a YEAR-and PAY the office fee up front.

Do you know why democrats refused to negotiate on nobamakare? For one reason and one reason only, they fear/know republicans will control both the house and senate in 2014 and they know darn well when it comes up before that congress it will go no where.

Ted Cruz and Other GOP Congressmen Lose by Acting Like Winners

Acting like they won the last election may be fun for Republicans like Ted Cruz, but it’s terrible politics. Just ask the Democrats.

In the days leading up to last November’s election, I remember thinking it odd that, despite the polls, so many Republicans were so certain that Mitt Romney would win. Turns out that wasn’t the strange part. The strange part is that almost a year later, many in the GOP think he actually did.

This March, Ted Cruz told the Dallas Morning News that his “biggest surprise” since entering the Senate “has been the defeatist attitude of many Republicans in Washington.” Cruz found this odd since “I believe we are winning the argument.”

Evidently it didn’t dawn on Cruz that the reason his fellow Republicans seemed “defeatist” was that their party had been, well, defeated. For the second time, Barack Obama had handily dispatched their presidential nominee. Once again, Democrats had held the Senate. Even in the House, where Republicans enjoyed a majority, Democrats had won the popular vote. Cruz may have believed that Republicans were “winning the argument” but he forgot that in our political system, we have a handy way to check. They’re called elections.

The good news, from Cruz’s perspective, is that in the six months since he uttered those words, he and his fellow Tea Partiers have convinced their party’s leaders to stop worrying about trifles like the elections of 2008 and 2012, both of which focused obsessively on Barack Obama’s ideas about health care. Notwithstanding the polls showing that most Americans don’t want Obamacare repealed, especially if it means shutting down the government, today’s Republicans have decided that the American people are on their side.

What we’re witnessing today in the GOP is not positive thinking. It’s entitlement. As Cruz himself has explained, the young firebrands now dictating the Republican Party’s direction are “children of Reagan.” Having come of age under a popular conservative president, they refuse to believe that “Reaganism” does not sell anymore.(Actually, genuine “Reaganism”--as practiced by the guy who repeatedly raised taxes, preserved social security, appointed pro-choice Supreme Court justices and amnestied illegal immigrants--would be left-wing heresy in today’s GOP). And, so far, no amount of election defeats will dissuade them.

The best precedent for all this is what happened to Democrats in the 70s and 80s. Again and again during those decades, the party suffered crushing defeats at the hands of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. But liberal politicians and activists, having come of age during the glory days of Roosevelt, Truman, and Kennedy, could not accept that they must accommodate themselves to the nation’s new conservative mood. And so liberals ignored the public by switching their focus to the courts—and urging liberal judges to enact the regulatory and cultural agenda that had been repudiated at the ballot box.

It didn’t end well. By refusing to heed the public will, liberals gained a reputation for elitism. And for two decades, the illusion that liberals could push the policy agenda left even as the electorate was moving right kept Democrats from making the ideological compromises necessary to win.

That’s where Republicans are today. Having failed to kill Obamacare in the courts, they’re trying to cripple it with a permanent filibuster in the Senate and a rule that only legislation backed by a majority of Republicans can be allowed to pass the House. Both gambits give legislators who represent a small minority of the electorate the ability to act as if they represent the majority. And both gambits will only solidify the GOP’s image as intolerant, arrogant, and extreme.

Last week, a guy named John McCain remarked that as much as Republicans dislike it, on the subject of health care,“elections have consequences." Another fellow, Mitt Romney, suggested that the GOP pursue a different path.“The other [option],” for eliminating Obamacare, he ventured,“would be potentially working hard to get Republicans elected.” Kill-joys. As Ted Cruz has realized, working hard to make sure Republicans don’t get elected is much more fun.

How many pages of regulations for ‘Obamacare’?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell points to a stack of papers representing what he claimed to be the regulations associated with President Obama's health-care law as he speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on March 15.(NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP/GETTY IMAGES)

“Obamacare is fully implemented January 1st, even though the regulations haven’t been written yet. And Brian, we’ve got 33,000 pages of regulations that they’ve already written. If we stacked it up here, it would be seven feet tall.”

— Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.), speaking on “Fox and Friends,” May 13, 2013

“Implementation has also become a bureaucratic nightmare, with some 159 new government agencies, boards and programs busily enforcing the roughly 20,000 pages of rules and regulations already associated with this law.”

— Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), on the third anniversary of the law’s passage, March 22, 2013

This column has been updated

Rep. Richard Hudson this week offered such an astonishing figure — 33,000 pages of “Obamacare” regulations!— that we immediately wanted to know more.

But it turns out that Hudson got a little bit ahead of himself. An aide said that he misspoke and meant to say 13,000 pages.“Whether it is 13,000, 22,000 or 33,000, it is too many,” the aide added.

But then it turns out that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has actually tweeted a photograph of this stack of paper. By his math, the Obama administration has issued 20,000 pages of regulations “associated” with the new law.

You clowns know as much about what's in the Constitution as Obama. Nothing.
Your ignorance is legendary.

"To provide and maintain a Navy", you take to mean "To provide a Navy and Coast Guard". In what world does that make sense??

That is both stupid and against conservative belliefs: that the Constitution is a 'dead' document, not subject to interpretation, only to be seen thru the actual words of the Founders.

The words say Navy, you idiot. Nothing about anything else.

You think you understand the Constitution, but you're too dumb to comprehend the meaning or intent of the actual verbiage.

You're in way over your head with your lame arguments, as usual.

I expect nothing less from nitwits like you who use the word 'obvious' ad nauseam, yet fail to provide any verifiable support of your silly claims of what is obvious.

What's obvious is that you're a bloviating moron of the highest order. And an admitted 'birfer' to boot!!

A terrifying combination of ignorance and hatredis what you are.
