Roll Call ^ | 11/15/2013 | Emma Dumain

Posted on 11/15/2013 10:48:38 AM PST by tapatio

The House easily passed Republican legislation on Friday allowing insurers to keep offering old insurance plans for another year in response to President Barack Obama’s broken “if you like it, you can keep it” promise.

Too little, too late. EVERYTHING “President” Muhammad Al-Obama DOES is illegal.

The Obamascam death spiral continues. Yeah, the Senate will blow it off but it keeps the Kenyan’s Marxist commie debacle in the news.

WHY are the Republicans bailing this guy out?

Let these people do without their health care. Let Obama wallow in his own stew.

The Republicans should just pass a bill stating that the official bird of the US is Obama giving us the finger.

Rep. Jim McDermott (D., Wash.) said “I haven’t seen this much panic on the [House] floor since 9/11; in response to the House Republican proposal allowing insurers to offer healthcare plans scheduled to be cancelled under Obamacare Friday morning:

JIM MCDERMOTT: Mr. Speaker, my mother used to say, patience is a virtue. I haven’t seen so much panic on this floor since 9/11.

Since Upton sponsored it, I’d like to add an amendment: If you like your light bulb, you can keep it.

Many of these people who are not whining about losing their health insurance, are the idiots who voted to put the moron into office.

As say, “Enjoy people!” This is part of the change you voted for.

I didn’t think the Upton bill had a time limit and would also allow anyone to purchase the plans, not just those that were cancelled.

I think this is being confused with Landrieu’s bill.

Actually the Senate won’t blow it off. They have their own plan for this. Reid will throw out Upton’s bill and substitute the Senate version which the House will then be pressured to approve. All this does is pull the Dems’ butts out of the fire until after the elections. Why why why do we do these stupid things?

_____________

Read the article....Obama vowed to veto it...this is basically a bill that will hasten the overall demise of the entire law, and the administration knows it. FInally the GOP is playing smart— this bill would hasten the destruction of Obamacare, puts Obama on record as vetoing a keep your plan fix, and drives a wedge between redstate-bluestate democrats and the president...More of this please.

Isn`t it hilariously ironic !?

That`s how Reid passed the ACA aka obamacare. He gutted a House bill and replaced it, lock stock and barrel.

Per Newt Gingrich :
Watch the vote on the Upton bill Friday and you will begin to sense the depth of the panic.
If only 20 or so Democrats vote with Upton, there is nothing happening.
If more than 40 Democrats vote with Upton, there is a real crack in the Obama machine.
If over 80 Democrats vote with Upton, there is a stampede away from the President by many of his most loyal supporters.

Yep. Wow, they don’t call it the Stupid Party for nothing.

I bet dollars to donuts that most or all those who voted for Upton’s bill originally voted FOR Obamacare. Had they actually read the bill we wouldn’t BE here!

And this is the work of God... prayers are getting answered. You think that God just yawns at a celestial suggestion box?

It so happens that health care is near and dear to His heart like more plain jane economic things are not. Money is nothing to Him; He owns a worldful of it. But humans and their well being matter. Those people, God made for Himself, and He was so bent on blessing those sinners that He personally underwent a shameful death in full human view. (That’s why slavery was the catalyst for the cataclysmic Civil War, even though nominally the issues were myriad.) To debate how flawed Lincoln and General Sherman were or how noble General Lee was is to utterly miss the point there. People are so earthly minded they miss the heavenly issues.

Pelosi...

NOT SORRY!

‘President was completely accurate’...

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who shepherded Obamacare through the House as speaker, said Obama was “very gracious” in making that apology but that the president’s words – in the context of the law – were “absolutely” precise.

“There’s nothing in the Affordable Care Act that says that your insurance company should cancel you,” she told reporters. “That’s not what the Affordable Care Act is about. It simply didn’t happen.”

I just posted this on another thread:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/3091762/posts?page=5#5

Next year may come sooner than the Dems want.

Countdown: US Hits Debt Ceiling in 84 Days

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/11/15/countdown-US-Hits-Debt-Ceiling-in-84-days

Twelve weeks from today, the US government will hit its borrowing limit. When Congress lifted the debt ceiling last month, for the first time ever, it pegged the increase to a specific date, rather than a dollar amount. The current borrowing authority expires in just 84 days, on February 7th.

Should Republicans “Demand delay” or “Changes” to 0bamacare for extending the debt ceiling ?

If they do, I suspect they will get a boat load of Democrat support and may work to the Dems advantage.

Should they go one step further and call for a complete repeal of 0bamacare ?

How much democrat support would they get and would it lead to a compromise that is just another delay, which would allow dems some cover in their reelection efforts ?

This is going to get very interesting.

Bridenstine is a TEA party guy. He is hard-core anti-ObamaCare and wants it repealed in its entirety. He believes there is no fix to ObamaCare except it elimination.

Bridenstein is an Okie and is my Representative.

The Senate will do much worse than “blow this off”. They will gut the bill, and substitute the language that Senator Landrieu of Louisiana has circulating (which does NONE of the things called for in the Upton bill), and bounce it back to the House, where, famously, it will not be read as re-written, and passed on an overwhelming margin, and The Current Occupant will sign the bill, making it the “law of the land”, but entirely toothless, and leaving the insurance companies and the now uninsured out there twisting in the wind.

And it will be both the insurance companies’ and the Republicans’ fault.

Once again, the snooker factor strikes.
