WHY are republiCONS fighting so hard to stop Obamacare?

In 2009, Orrin Hatch annoucned that health care reform must be stopped or else it would be so popular that no one will ever vote republiCON again.

That is the bottom line.

Funny part about all of this, none of them realize that 80% of the country (probably 90% by now) told them to not do this. And they have a 10% approval rating.
THEY. ARE. GONE!

Watch President Clinton Unleashed: Republicans Are ‘Begging for America to Fail’

Bill Clinton was absolutely on fire this week, as new video has surfaced of an interview he gave Thursday in New York during the annual Clinton Global Initiative, were he ripped Republicans for their unprecedented economic hostage taking and inexcusable rooting against the American people and their health.

The Republican Party is “begging for America to fail” by rooting for President Obama’s signature health care law to fail, the former President correctly stated on “This Week” with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

“I’ve never seen a time – can you remember a time in your lifetime when a major political party was just sitting around, begging for America to fail … I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I’ll be shocked if it fails,” Clinton said.

“I just think that when all these dire predictions don’t come out, if they don’t — I believe that pretty soon, within the next several years, this’ll be like Medicare and Medicaid. And it’ll be a normal part of our life. And people will be glad it’s there,” the former president told ABC News.

“I think this bill’s already produced a lot of good results and every — look, they are desperate for this bill to fail, because if it’s not a failure, their whole — everything they’ve been telling us since 1980 that government’s bad is wrong. They so badly want it to fail,” he said.
He’s absolutely right, and coming from man of his stature, it is bound to resonate with the American people.

Watch the video (BELOW):

Ole Bill could win an election again if he could run. He sure will be a big help to HILLARY. lol

The MAJORITY knows the teabagging republiCONS has tried to drag this country down still denying his elections 2008/2012. The MAJORITY voted for him both times as OBAMAcare was one of the things he ran on. I think the MAJORITY spoke then. Sure will bite them bigtime.

After the Gov. Shutdown, Republicans Can Kiss Congress Goodbye in 2014

With Congress at an approval rating of only 4%, the American people have made their judgment about our current political crisis. The Republican Party is beleaguered and plagued by infighting, lack of leadership, and general distrust. As it stands the only thing that Republicans can do is primary each other into an oblivion of controversy and contradiction. The fact that they have gone as far as to induce a government shut down shows the utter lack of leadership of “moderates” and “conservatives” in the Congressional Republican caucus.

The Republican Party has become a stage act of the Hatfields & Mcoys fighting a family feud over territory. That is what is going to disintegrate it, and that is what led to this reckless shutdown. The moderates lost, and to pretend that John Boehner or even Eric Cantor have power over characters the likes of Louie Gohmert and Virginia Foxx is a lie. Sure, they are able to fund campaigns, but only campaigns that take out other Republicans.

This particular problem makes them even more vulnerable to an outside challenge since they are more prone to look at the inside of their party for attack. That’s what a 4% approval rating will do to Congressmen, and that shows that they are not effective as a party. The fact that their strongest governors, Chris Christie and Rick Perry, are now accepting medicare expansions and loving Obamacare is even more telling. The opposition within their party is fracturing the Republican Party as a whole.

After the 2012 election, even an usually cooperative Jan Brewer agreed to a medicare expansion. The Democrats do not have to worry about being identified as too liberal or too centrist. The Republicans already do that within their own party, because all they have created is a primary machine to elect a few congressional candidates that will not appeal to a majority vote.

Even if we look at the competitiveness of races in the Deep South, which has become the GOP stronghold, the Republicans have to put up a fight. This is all due to the intransigent primary machine that has left even the most loyal Republican voters with battle scars. Mitch McConnell is a perfect example of this due to his primary challenge that is likely to cost him dearly in the general election.

Republican’s chances to keep the House will be even further diminished after the government shutdown. They falsely believed they were going to get a Reagan Revolution out of this whole issue.

Unfortunately for them, Ted Cruz’s charisma does not make up for his lies and the fact that he has become the poster boy of Republican alienation. As it stands, the Democrats have to win back 17 seats in the upcoming 2014 elections. With polls showing a whopping majority of Americans (69%) blaming the GOP for this shutdown, they cannot control enough moderate seats to keep the House.

This shutdown represents what is wrong with the Republican Party and why its territory is slowly but very surely sinking in places like Upstate New York and Kentucky. They no longer have the liberty to run moderates because they have shot themselves in the foot by allowing the Tea Party to literally cement the overthrow of their leadership.

The truth is, the spite that came with the radical right is what is killing the Republican Party. They have driven Congress to a 4% approval rating; their caucus cannot even come up with any legislation. The Republicans may retain a regional base within the Deep South, but even that will be challenged demographically.

CONtinued:

Beginning with Paul Ryan in 2011 and his drive to privatize Medicare even seniors, one of the most conservative demographics in this country, have begun to flee the Republican party. In previous elections, the senior vote for Republicans has dropped six points in terms of turnout, not to mention the fact that in 2012 for the first time in history African American turnout exceeded white turnout at the polls in many states and that 19% of the electorate are seniors.

With the upcoming elections, the issues are clearer than ever. If your party cannot finish arguing with itself, then you represent what you hate. The current Republican caucus is representing the obstruction of big government that they complain about everyday. That’s the argument democrats are making and that is the reason why a generic Democratic candidate has an 8% higher likelihood of being elected in 2014 than a generic Republican.

Republicans will be blamed for this shutdown and it will have serious political repercussions, as America will see who is truly responsible for the gridlock in Washington. They voted to shutdown government, let’s shut them down in 2014!

It's just funny to me. Hilarious how dumb these republicans are.

I said it earlier, repubs want to hold off for one year so they can keep seats..... That's not going to happen. They've pissed off the entire country.

I can not wait for the next election.

We all wonder why if Obamacare is the law,"why do some Washington DC insiders get a pass to not obey that law?"

We also saw on the news earlier this evening where those WWIi vets took care of, that shut down going on at the memorial. Good for them. Know what I mean?

Movie Mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg Raises $1 Million for Mitch McConnell's Democratic Foe

Hollywood is betting big on Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Democratic challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

Jeffrey Katzenberg, the movie mogul and Democratic kingmaker, raised more than $1 million for Grimes at a recent fundraiser at the Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Katzenberg, who marshaled more than $30 million to reelect President Obama, has trained his sights on the McConnell-Grimes race for 2014 election season.

In an email to potential donors sent earlier this month, Katzenberg said of the Kentucky Senate race, "There is no more important election being held next year in this country." Katzenberg wrote that he sees McConnell as an obstructionist who has crippled the US Senate and hurt the democratic process in Congress. "Alison is the antidote to McConnell and all he represents," Katzenberg wrote. "She can win, and she will win if she gets the support she needs."

Here's more on Katzenberg's fundraiser from the Hollywood Reporter:

As the event concluded shortly before 8 p.m. and the room emptied out, the studio head and his political adviser, Andy Spahn, lingered at a table chatting with the candidate. As Grimes made her own exit, she paused to thank lingering campaign staff members, who laughingly told her the effort “came from the top down,” a reference to the intense hands-on role Katzenberg took in orchestrating the visit.

Asked for names of donors, Katzenberg simply responded, "Everybody."

The total was particularly impressive since individual donors can contribute only $5,200 to a candidate for federal office.

One of the Hollywood insiders who sized Grimes up during the whirlwind visit told THR that—while there are no formal records kept–the $1 million total is thought to be a record for a single visit by a senatorial candidate raising money in the L.A. entertainment industry.

A knowledgeable source also told THR that Katzenberg is preparing to renew his strong support for Democratic Super PACs as a way to level the electoral playing field in Kentucky, where Republican independent expenditure committees are expected to spend major cash to secure McConnell’s reelection.

Grimes herself made a strong impression at the luncheon, cocktail event and private meetings she attended during a visit that began Wednesday and wrapped up Thursday night. "I spent some time talking with her," said one Hollywood supporter. "She's very smart, very attractive, very poised. She has a good story about her Kentucky roots and her life there. She is very serious. She really wants to win this.

Why isn't the country imploding now? Why didn't the country implode when the healthcare was first passed like to all said it would? Why didn't out country implode when the SCOTUS said it was legal like you all said it would??

All the bad will always happen in the future, but your fear, doom, and gloom NEVER HAPPENS!!

Daily News headline skewers lawmakers over shutdown

With the shutdown of the federal government, nearly every newspaper in existence came up with their own clever headline. None were quite as pointed as the New York Daily News. The cover parodies Netflix's hit series "House of Cards," only with John Boehner in place of Kevin Spacey.

The title: "House of Turds." The cover is sure to strike a chord with the 72 percent of voters, according to a new poll released Tuesday morning, that oppose Congress shutting down the federal government. As funny as the headline is, the idea of John Boehner playing Francis Underwood makes us giggle even more.— By Nick Mangione [Source]
