Top Dems To GOP: Dream On, You’ll Never Touch Obamacare

With only a handful of days on the legislative calendar before funding runs out for the federal government, congressional leaders gave no public sign Thursday of being any closer to a deal.

Republican leaders continue to grapple with demands from their conservative wing to defund Obamacare as part of any deal to fund the government. For their part, Democratic leaders had a simple message: Dream on, we’ll never let you touch Obamacare.

Both sides continue to view a continuing resolution to keep the government funded temporarily past Sept. 30 as the most likely legislative vehicle to avoid a government shutdown. But those talks are being stymied by the House GOP’s internal disagreement on whether defunding Obamacare should be the price they exact from Democrats for allowing the federal government to remain in business. The message from conservatives to their own leaders: shut down the government unless Democrats blink and defund Obamacare or we’ll unleash the dogs on you.

While House Republican leaders thought they had worked out a way to appease conservatives on Obamacare — a show vote to defund Obamacare but steer clear of a shutdown threat — they were forced to delay that gambit Wednesday amid a mutiny on their right flank.

Moments later, Senate Democratic leaders flatly dismissed a delay of Obamacare and warned that attempting to do so would lead to a government shutdown.

“I told [Boehner] very directly that all these things they’re trying to do on Obamacare is a waste of their time,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told reporters.“Let’s stop playing these really juvenile political games.”

“Those in touch with reality should understand that passing a clean CR is the right thing to do,” he said.“Their direction is a direction to shut down the government.… If Republican leaders keep giving into tea party demands they must be rooting for a shutdown.”

The White House also reiterated Thursday that President Barack Obama would reject efforts to undermine Obamacare.“We will not accept anything that delays or defunds Obamacare,” spokesman Jay Carney told reporters.

The House GOP’s pickle is made worse by the fact that they want to avoid a government shutdown because they recognize their party is likely to be blamed for it. But the craving on the right for an all-out war has leaders exploring ways to placate them — so far to no avail.

“We’ll continue to do everything we can to repeal, dismantle or defund Obamacare,” Boehner told reporters, praising House passage Thursday of the party’s 41st attempt to repeal or dismantle the health care reform law.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) invited Republicans to battle it out over Obamacare in the mid-term elections and try defund the law if they win.“But not at the expense of average Americans,” he said.“Republicans should train their efforts to 2014.”

“The more reasonable voices will prevail,” Schumer said.“But we’re going to have to go through a lot of convolution and speeches and paralysis before that happens.”

At the end of the day the Obamacare spat, while politically significant in a variety of ways, is not what the real debate over the continuing resolution will be about. The real negotiations will be about what level to fund the government at and what to do about sequestration. But the box that GOP leaders find themselves in over Obamacare could splinter the House majority to such a degree that it hands the initiative to Democrats.

As the shutdown deadline looms, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) warned Thursday that the week-long recess at the end of September may be canceled.

“The anarchists are winning,” lamented Reid. He added:“I like John Boehner. I really do. But I do feel sorry for him.”

New report:'Obamacare' has saved Americans over $1 billion in 2012

Despite constant efforts by the Republican party, the Affordable Care Act is actually working.
Over 40 times in Congress Republicans have attempted to pass legislation that would repeal the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare." Whether it's the talking heads on Fox News or conservatives voices on the radio, Republicans have used the right-wing media to lead the anti-Obamacare train across America. While many on the political right are quick to blame President Obama's health care law for all of economic problems in the country, the reality is that it just isn't so.

According to a new detailed report by the Department of Health and Human Services, Americans saved over $1 billion in 2012 alone due to the saving brought on by "Obamacare."

"An analysis from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) of rate review activities in calendar year (CY) 2012 shows that the rate review process saved consumers approximately $1.2 billion on their premiums when compared to the amount initially requested by insurers. These savings accrued to 6.8 million people.

In the individual market, the average rate request increase dropped by 12 percent (from 8.1 percent to 7.1 percent) after rate review, saving consumers an estimated $311 million. Similarly, in the small group market, the average rate increase request declined by 19 percent (from 5.8 percent to 4.7 percent), saving consumers an estimated $866 million after rate review. This is in addition to the $500 million in medical loss ratio rebates for 2012, for a total $1.7 billion in savings in 2012."

As Americans begin to enter the health exchange and the new health care law goes into full effect, millions of Americans will finally be able to afford health care. Republicans are expected to continue to push back and even attempt to repeal the health care reform, but as more studies are released showing the positive impact of "Obamacare," the conservative plan is die at the door step.

Yet another glaring example of why tax cuts for big businesses are destroying our economy.


Intel Cut Jobs Before New Plant Closing

HUDSON — In the seven years since the state increased a tax break to Intel almost tenfold, to as much as $300 million, the computer chip giant has cut more than 600 jobs at its facilities in Hudson and now plans to eliminate another 700 when it closes a factory in town next year.

Officials with the Patrick administration said they are reviewing whether to end Intel’s tax break early because of the pending plant closing. However, it does not appear the state can force Intel to repay any of the tax benefits it claimed during the period it was cutting jobs, as the state law that authorized the deal at the time did not provide for so-called claw back provisions, except in cases of fraud.“Some companies don’t meet their projections,” said Greg Bialecki, the state’s economic development chief.“That is a fact of life.”

http://www.boston.com/business/technology/201...

Guess who was governor when those tax cuts went into effect? Good old Mittens. Guess which party has received the liar's (no, I don't mean lion's) share of Intel PAC money? The GOP.

Last year the Dems got a little more - maybe Intel thought that would allow them to keep that juicy tax break and bonuses for execs until they closed their doors?

It may very well have worked, since in the six years he's been in office, Democratic governor Patrick has done nothing about it. But now his administration is "looking into" ending a tax break that should have ended with the first mass layoff. Way to stay on top of things there, Deval.*rme*

Hello Crow, I'm not sure what to think of this latest plan. I think that tyrant should face the war crimes he committed. Oh well, I guess we will see. I doubt that it is anywhere over.

I see the circus clowns were busy last night defending ari and his socks. NG will catch on soon enough if he pays attention to the language, phrases, and location spins.

I hope you have a wonderful day. It has been a glorious morning and I plan to wash and wax my car this afternoon. Football game at the HS was fun and exciting. It has been awhile since football doesn't interest me much. I love Basketball, especially UK basketball. 34 more days until Midnight Madness kicks it off. We have UK parties all season long. Love them.

Great posts last night. I stayed at my sister's and came home early this morning so I just scanned the posts, mostly about me which I won't bother addressing. I see aribobbysocks has re-written our posts to fit his sick humor.

House GOP Leaders Furious With Tea Party Senators’ Hard Line On Obamacare

House Republican leadership is furious with ultraconservative Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) whom they see as hobbling their efforts to secure an achievable spending victory by insisting on threatening a government shutdown over the unachievable goal of defunding Obamacare.

http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2013/09/ho...

They should push aside those jr senators and show them how to govern for once. But they will just huff and puff and get nothing done. Just continue eating their own right up until election only to find out they are still the MINORITY in this country. Maybe they should relocate to Russia with their favorite hero traitor snowden.

"Many in this group (of the Tea Party) didn't come to power to get things done. They came to power to keep things from getting done." and they are doing a great job of it.

Michelle Obama Says Drinking Water is a Good Thing — Americans Get Outraged

Some things in life are understandably controversial and evoke a wide range of emotions. Religion, taxes, even sports can bring about passionate arguments among average Americans.

Drinking water should not be one of these “controversial” topics.

But apparently if Michelle Obama endorses it, that immediately makes it controversial.
The first lady launched a new campaign to get Americans to “Drink Up” yesterday, as part of her ongoing Let’s Move initiative.

This seems like common sense, but study after study has shown that millions of Americans simply aren’t drinking enough water. We get inundated nonstop with advertising and weekly sales on caffeinated beverages, which fuel the urge to boost our overworked and under-rested bodies with any sort of “energy” drink other than water.
So what’s so controversial about the first lady choosing to recommend drinking more water? Apparently, everything.

Apparently some people would rather have millions of Honey Boo Boos running around hopped up on “Go Go Juice” all day.

I’m sorry, but I fail to see what’s so controversial about recommending that people drink water. I know from personal experience that dehydration can cause loss of energy and headaches — I pretty much drank nothing but Diet Mountain Dew and other sodas for several years, with only an occasional water mixed in. And I felt like garbage. Now I will admit that I do still drink soda, but ever since I’ve incorporated much more water into my daily routine, I’ve had more energy and far fewer headaches.

Everybody’s needs are different, but if there’s one thing we’ve pretty much established throughout humanity’s history, it’s that water is good for you. Seriously, have we not at least come to a general consensus on that?

This should not be controversial, folks.
Then we have the “top comments” in response to The Daily Caller’s report of the story, which showcase the fact that many Americans will hate anything that anybody with the last name “Obama” promotes — even something as non-controversial as water — simply because it’s an Obama promoting it.

However, the response from readers of The Daily Caller is nothing compared to the response from the faithful readers on teaparty.org . First of all, we have the headline expressing faux outrage that she would dare mention anything about water “on September 11th!” And then we have the disgusting comments from readers which resemble something out of an “Alex Jones meets the KKK” fantasy land of bigotry wrapped inside tinfoil hats. The water must be poisoned if she’s telling us to drink it!

All over a recommendation to drink more water.
Seriously.

Sadly, it’s hard not to come to the conclusion that there’s simply no hope for some of these people. But I stand by my assertion that drinking water should not be controversial. It’s simply common sense, and more Americans should be encouraged to do it. Kudos to the first lady for choosing to put a spotlight on it, and shame on anybody who tries to paint it in a negative light.

Of all the things to disagree on or argue over, keeping yourself hydrated and drinking water truly should not be one of them. Grow up.

http://www.forwardprogressives.com/michelle-o...

Typical CON tactic. GROW UP is right.

I'm sure that sarin gas left a bad taste in the mouths of Assad's victims, too. He should be wiped off the face of this earth.

I agree that this seems like the best solution for the U.S. at this point. I'm glad, however, that a military strike is still on the table.

Since when has any Iranian regime needed a "reason" to revert to being wild-eyed extremists? They're just playing up to Sputum right now to maintain his half-hearted support.

Opponents in Kentucky Make Mitch McConnell Useless in the Senate

The Republican leader in the Senate is being held hostage in a reelection battle against a Democrat and a Tea Party challenger. Patricia Murphy reports on a leader who is running scared.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is officially the second most powerful Republican in Washington, ranking behind only House Speaker John Boehner in terms of seniority.

But McConnell is finding that he may also be the second most powerful Republican in his home state of Kentucky, where his freshman colleague, Sen. Rand Paul, has electrified local Tea Party activists, rocketed to the top of conservative's 2016 presidential contender lists, and, along with Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, staked out far-right positions on political issues so early that McConnell has had little choice but to follow in Paul’s footsteps or face criticism for being insufficiently conservative, a label longtime Kentucky politicos say would be laughable in any other political environment.

Even though McConnell eventually arrived at the same position as most of the Tea Party groups in Kentucky, they still hammered him for taking so long to make up his mind. That observation is echoed among top Senate staffers, both Democratic and Republican, who say they see McConnell’s reelection in Kentucky coinciding with a more cautious, less visible role for McConnell driving the Senate Republican agenda.

“The fact of the matter is, for months now, Senator McConnell has been all but MIA from the Senate floor,” says Jim Manley, a former top aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid when Reid was up for reelection in 2010.“To borrow a riff from an old ad of McConnell’s, we need a bloodhound to find his involvement in the Senate these days. That’s a real problem.”

“The last person who pitched himself as a technocratic moderate Republican was Trey Grayson, who got trounced by Rand Paul in a Senate Republican primary,” said Prof. Voss, referring to Paul’s 2010 Senate GOP primary opponent, whom McConnell endorsed two weeks before he lost to Paul by more than 20 points.“I can see how that would make one a little cautious about playing up experience and the ability to get things done."
But McConnell has made one deal at home this year that is more important than anything he could do in Washington. Rand Paul has endorsed him for the Senate in 2014.
