GOP's 'playbook' to deny Americans health care

(CNN)-- New Yorkers have two ways of looking at a problem. You can ask, "What went wrong, and who do we blame?" or you can roll up your sleeves and ask, "What went wrong, and how do we fix it?"

If anyone in America had any question about which question congressional Republicans would ask, we now have an answer: House Republicans engineered a 17-page playbook detailing how to sabotage and repeal the Affordable Care Act so they can score political points. In this lengthy manual, however, Republicans didn't offer a single idea for solutions, for helping constituents enroll in health care or understand their benefits. Rather, the entire handbook is a tactical guide to tearing down the law.

Republicans have no playbook to create jobs, they have no playbook to build infrastructure, they have no playbook to pass immigration reform, they have no playbook to pass a budget -- and they have no playbook to propose a better health care system.

Their only playbook is to take us back to a system that didn't work, that led hardworking people into bankruptcy and gave insurance companies unchecked power to deny care and drop coverage. Democrats, on the other hand, are going to relentlessly remind Americans that one party is willing to fix the Affordable Care Act and that one party -- the Republican Party -- wants to repeal the law and put insurance companies back in charge.

Because when Americans see Republicans in Congress sharing an anecdote or holding a hearing, they can know it is designed to do one thing: Take the country back to the dark days when our health care system didn't work.

As a Democrat who represents countless families who need the reforms from the Affordable Care Act, there's no question in my mind that the problems that have emerged as the health care exchanges have rolled out need to be fixed, and soon, so that the act works for the American people. One thing is clear: We can't go back to a broken system that doesn't cover a woman because she had breast cancer or one in which a 24-year-old is kicked off his parents' insurance.

When Speaker John Boehner and House Republicans feign concern over the problems with the law or the glitches with implementation, they have no credibility.

The law is already measurably helping Americans and the American economy. A report this week from the Council on Economic Advisers said that health care inflation is at the lowest rate in a generation and that health care spending has risen by the lowest rate of growth ever recorded, improvements brought about, in part, by the law. And this is to say nothing of the vital consumer protections the law has brought about.

When the dust clears, the American people will see one basic principle: Democrats are striving to improve the law, and Republicans are striving to sabotage it, rooting for failure and refusing to offer any ideas of their own about how to improve the system.

The debate over health care is a microcosm of the broader debate between Democrats and Republicans about the big issues facing our country, whether it's ending the Medicare guarantee or making sure corporations pay their fair share. In the coming months, we'll see the divide between the parties on full display, as Republicans yet again hurtle the country toward more shutdown showdowns and fiscal brinksmanship this winter.

Make no mistake: As Republicans show that their priority is to protect special interests, destroy the Affordable Care Act and side with insurance companies, Democrats will stand on the side of hardworking families. House Democrats will continue to work to offer commonsense solutions to the American people so that health care works, middle-class families can get ahead and the dysfunction in Washington stops jeopardizing the prosperity of this great nation.

GOP Taps Rand Paul To Open Minority Outreach Office

The Michigan GOP is seeking to increase the party's visibility in the Democratic stronghold of Detroit, 97.5 percent of which voted to reelect Barack Obama in 2012.

The solution? Open a new outreach center for Detroit voters, named the "African American Engagement Office."

The GOP has tapped Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to headline the official opening of the office on Dec. 6, which will highlight "the Michigan Republican Party's outreach efforts and our commitment to revitalizing Michigan's urban centers," according to the Eventbrite listing.

Paul will already be in Detroit to speak on the city's bankruptcy crisis at the Detroit Economic Club, where he will "unveil his new legislative proposal to remove bankrupt Detroit and other economically blighted areas from poverty and the shackles of big government," according to the Detroit Free Press.

Both the name of the office and the outreach strategy are already attracting their share of detractors. One Republican strategist told The Huffington Post that it sounds like Michigan Republicans are opening a "'separate, but equal' office in Detroit."

"The party should have an office in Detroit, but calling it the 'African American Engagement Office' is absurd, offensive and pathetic," the source told The Huffington Post on background.

Paul may be an unusual choice for Detroit. Though he has said he would have marched with Martin Luther King Jr., Paul has also criticized the Civil Rights Act and said the government shouldn't force businesses to serve minorities. His views have appealed to several white separatists who donated to his campaign, according to the New York Daily News.

In July, Paul said he would oppose any plan by the president to send aid to the Motor City, vowing an Obama bailout would occur "over my dead body because we donít have any money in Washington."

The liberal Eclectablog also questioned the wisdom of having Paul speak to Detroit voters.

"This is the guy thatís going to help the Republicans rebrand themselves as a party that is friendly to African Americans and heís going to do it in a city that is 82.7% African American. Good luck with that," Eclectablog wrote.

But Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a Detroit appearance on Nov. 12 that the new office and other GOP outreach efforts targeting minority voters were "long overdue," according to the Detroit News.

The RNC announced last week that it had hired a state director of African-American engagement in Michigan, Wayne Bradley. Bradley will be "leading that statewide effort from this [Detroit] office," Michigan GOP Communications Director Darren Littell told The Huffington Post in an email. Michigan Republicans will open 10 new GOP offices throughout the state and also announced a new 13-member Michigan Black Advisory Council to help build relationships throughout the state.

ďItís based on the fundamental principle, if you want to get the sale, youíve got to show up and ask for the order," Priebus said.

Josh Pugh, communications director for the Michigan Democratic Party, questioned the GOP's plan to attract African-American voters in Michigan in a statement to The Huffington Post.

"After Lansing Republicansí crusade to make it harder for African-Americans to vote, the GOPís campaign to prevent millions of uninsured black Americans from accessing affordable health care, and Republican Gov. Snyderís Emergency Manager law, ensuring that over half of black Michiganders no longer have the right to elect their local government," he wrote, "the GOP has repeatedly proven they are so far out of touch, they canít even see it."

Mitch McConnell Is Less Popular Than the Affordable Care Act in Kentucky

Sen. McConnell is so desperate to run against Obamacare that he recently refused to talk about anything else during a press conference in Kentucky, but these numbers reveal that he might be better off keeping his mouth shut. McConnell is sinking like a rock in Kentucky

It is becoming clear at this point time that Kentucky voters donít want to send Sen. McConnell back to the Senate for another term.

The fact that Mitch McConnell is more disliked than the ACA tells you everything that you need to know about how he could lose his seat in 2014. This poll is the clearest sign yet that Kentucky voters are seriously considering ditching Mitch.

I highly doubt that 97.5% of registered voters voted for One person; furthermore I doubt that an overwhelming majority of the opposition voted for that one person, therefore...I say it is more probable that those votes were FRAUDULENT!

This is pretty much what he said:
Georgia. Commissioner Ralph Hudgens (R) said,ďWhile I encourage insurers to offer consumers as many options as permitted, I lack the statutory authority to force insurers to provide the stop-gap measure that the President created yesterday. Insurance companies have spent years preparing for Obamaís law, now the President has given them six weeks to temporarily undo its damage.Ē
As usual,this incompetent President waits until its too late to undo the damage hes done when he has the knowledge and time to do so.
This is just another blatant slap in the face to ALL Americans.
How many impeachable offenses will this buffoon have to commit before Congress grows a set and puts a stop to it?
