You like your doctor but you can’t keep him. You like your insurance but you can’t keep it. ObamaCare is a train wreck.
Koch Brother Horror Stories
These horror stories are all lies, lies, and damned lies according to cowboy poet Harry Reid. They didn’t really happen to you. They were ginned up at the un-American Brothers Koch Fairy Tale mill to send red state democrats running for cover.
The House voted to retract the debt ceiling with no restrictions and the Senate approved about 5 minutes later.
During his State of the Union speech the president again emphasized his intention to go it alone. He’s his own separation of powers. He’s got a phone and a pen and he don’t need no stinking Congress.
Back in December Law professor Jonathan Turley said that President Obama is “becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid”.
The Affordable Care Act has 20,000 pages of regulations. Nebraska senate candidate Ben Saase uses the thing in a 9 foot high stack as a prop. It’s held together by a pipe right jammed down the middle. He would like to impale it permanently.
President Obama gave his I Have a Pen Speech yesterday. He waved his pen and said he also has a phone.
He then warned Congress that if it doesn’t do his bidding he would have his way by executive order. He would do that with the pen. He would use the phone to rally “non-profit and private sector support” for his agenda.
He didn’t mention recess appointments. In 2012 he declared the Senate in recess, even though the Senate said it was not. He then used the self-proclaimed recess to appoint 2 new members to the National Labor Relations board without Senate approval.
The Supreme Court is not looking kindly on the maneuver.
