Obama begs Senate: We must pass my disastrous health care bill ASAP

posted at 9:06 pm on July 16, 2009 by Allahpundit

I don’t blame him. The longer this drags out, the more time they’ll have to actually read the bill. Witness the fierce urgency of fiscal catastrophe:

After another intense day of closed-door negotiations, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.), ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and other senators emerged from a meeting Thursday to admit they had not reached the finish line.

“We’re ready when we’re ready but we’re not going to be ready today,” Baucus told reporters. “We’re very close to reaching agreement. By close, I mean it’s a matter of couple, three or four days, maybe.”

That may not be close enough for Obama, who has repeatedly said he wants both the House and Senate to approve their respective versions of healthcare reform before Congress departs for its August recess…

Following the White House gathering, the urgency of Baucus’s work appeared to intensify. But in announcing the senators had not made a deal, Baucus also said they would not meet again until next week…

“It takes time and that’s what I expressed to the president today, that I hope we can have flexibility on the timeframe so that we can make the best decisions possible on this monumental challenge,” [Olympia] Snowe said. “Well, I don’t know that he necessarily agreed.”

In fact, Snowe said, the Senate should wait until after the August recess to give senators time to review the combined Finance and HELP committee package and get feedback from constituents.

Everyone’s a bit jaded about The One’s modus operandi by now but it’s worth stepping back to drink this in. We’re talking here about his signature policy issue, the most significant domestic legislation that Congress has considered in decades, and rather than take his time and be meticulous about it, Obama’s trying to ram it through as quickly as he can for reasons of either ego or pure political expediency. That “pass something, anything!” approach could be understood (if not forgiven) in the case of the stimulus recovery “stabilization” bill, since the whole point was to start pushing money out the door as quickly as possible — which didn’t happen, natch. But what’s the excuse this time? What pressing policy consideration demands that this turd be pinched off before August instead of letting Congress take its time? Any lefties want to help me out?

So confident is The One in the success of his program that he’s desperately seeking another “bipartisan” fig leaf a la the Snowe/Specter/Collins votes for the stimulus to share blame when everything goes wrong. Exit question via Ace: How long will it be before Obama starts insisting that he never said universal health care would save money in the long run?

Why the rush?

I think it is high time for a REAL crisis – you know so we can come together as nation and look to government to save us…

Got to get the heavy lifting done first…implement during the crisis, kinda gives things a “normal” feeling when crisis subsides.

(Just speculating out loud)

Ogabe is losing his mojo. The POS is so used to basking in his own glory that he has never had to worry about actually working to get things done.

Now that real effort is called for, perhaps even…OMG…bipartisanship….suddenly Ogabe is a deer in the headlights; he doesn’t have a clue how to do anything other than demand.

This is the most significant moment in our history. Once this G.H (Government Health) is voted in there is no going back.

Rationing, lines, loss of diagnostic testing, government issued medication is just the start.

Doctors are already retiring, private insurance will be run out of town, seen as money grubbing and therefore will be vilified.

Medicare times 10 on tap. We all know how tidy that program is run.

jana on July 17, 2009 at 12:33 AM

Just a thought on the rush to pass the health Care Bill. It may be that, with his ratings dropping, Obama needs this bill in place quickly so that he can get his Amnesty Bill through before he totally tanks.

Remember, he cannot possibly reverse the the procedure – if Amnesty passed first, he would have no chance on healthcare.

OldEnglish on July 17, 2009 at 12:39 AM

I really hope Bohner takes as much time as he needs to in order to read this bill.

I also hope he stresses the point that to pass this would be a death sentence to many individual Americans who would no longer be treated as individuals.

This is all about control. Turning the American Individual into a number on a forgotten page.

There is no minority more repressed and less represented than the human individual.

*I refuse to call it the stabilization bill. It was passed as a stimulus bill. I refuse to file that fact into the memory hole.

Witness the fierce urgency of fiscal catastrophe

This isn’t just a fiscal catastrophe, but a disaster of monumental and historic proportions. This movement to derail capitalism and destroy the foundation of what this country has been built upon scares the bejeezus out of me.

I truly fear what is to come for this country. This scares me even more than when I was in school and had to do the nuclear bomb drills, hiding under desks (as if it would actually protect us). There is nothing to protect us now either, except possibly faith in the American people, those who blindly voted for him and those who usually stand by idly, to wake up and realize what a devastating disaster looms for us all should Mr. Obama get his way.

I’m not an educated intellectual person who can spout numbers, statistics and even give coherent arguments most of the time, but something is very very wrong with what he is doing and the WAY he is doing it. I know it instinctively. Mr. Obama wants this country to be something that it was never intended to be. He is not good for us. He is not us.

Miss Molly on July 17, 2009 at 2:00 AM

Obama wants this passed before the legislators go home for the recess and hear lots of complaints from their constituents. If it doesn’t get passed before the recess, it won’t get passed at all, and Obama knows it. That’s why he is pushing so hard now.

mydh12 on July 17, 2009 at 2:00 AM

My question to Mr. Obama would be…

“if it is so important, why would you want to do it so danged fast”?

He won’t be able to answer honestly.

Obama begs Senate: We must pass my disastrous health care bill ASAP, or else unemployment will go above 8%.

Joe Bloggs on July 17, 2009 at 2:49 AM

So … health care is going to bankrupt us? Well, here’s my radical proposal to stop that, immediately:

Cap outlays for Medicare and Medicaid. Period. They can’t grow anymore. Or give them a 1% growth limit. That’s it. End of story. Costs are now controlled. These programs will no longer bankrupt us. Now, politicians are going to have to scramble to make those fewer dollars go farther, or get people to accept lessening public services in exchange for our individual liberty. That’s not tough. The legislation could be written up in a few pages and everyone would be able to understand it. And it is the only way to solve this problem.

Anything other than this is a fraud on the American public. If they want to add free market reforms and more access for private health insurance and groups and health savings accounts, that would be great and would make it cheaper for everyone, but even if they don’t, the impending bankruptcy of our nation would be stopped – which is more important than anything.

progressoverpeace on July 17, 2009 at 3:27 AM

Why ASAP?

It will be the final stake through the heart of Capitalism aka The Free Market. We will officially be serfs. Game over.

I heard this analogy recently. I can’t remember where. Marxism in America has been slowly advancing down the field for 80 odd years. Obama now has the ball, he is surrounded by blockers, and he is sprinting through the gap.

Good analogy. Fascism advanced across Europe a hell of a long way too. Our analogy is that we need to gather in England, prepare to invade, and then do so on a day of our choosing. Our Rangers need to scale the cliffs, take out the guns, then our Patton needs to aim for Berlin. Following that, fascism was dealt an ugly and fiery death for a few years.

Prediction

If Obamacare passes in this hurry up offense fashion…

1. In 6 mos, only 7% of people will be covered that it was intended to cover.
2. More people have died waiting for care (nearly 10%) and not the expected 8%
3. Diseases that were to be prevented continue to occur
4. Health care sector begins to SHED jobs too
5. Physicians and hospitals go rogue and begin accepting CASH only
6. Rogue medical practitioners summon the entrepreneurial spirit and begin making house calls again in an effort to make an end run around Obama care.
7. Medical and nursing school enrollments fall
8. Medical and nursing school enrollment STANDARDS fall…
9. A course in Ebonics is a requirement for medical school graduation
10. The White House medical staff mutinies and begins handing out “painkillers” only. Calls it the Obamaspecial–you hurt–you get this…
11. Ambulances, air ambulances and other expensive pre-hospital niceties start slowly disappearing
12. We get speeches that “It’s working….”

have we heard this story before…?

It’ll be far worse than that, but you’re on the right track. It’s not like this hasn’t all been tried before. It’s been tried before many times, and it does not work. But instead of admitting that, and trying something that really truly could work, and really could help bring the cost of health insurance down, the Democrats prefer to fall back on socialistic policies that have already been discredited.

After another intense day of closed-door negotiations, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.), ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and other senators emerged from a meeting Thursday to admit they had not reached the finish line.
“We’re ready when we’re ready but we’re not going to be ready today,” Baucus told reporters. “We’re very close to reaching agreement. By close, I mean it’s a matter of couple, three or four days, maybe.”

This is all a charade to pretend that due diligence is being done. That’s a Snowe/Collins move. Pretend that you are taking a long look at the bill.

Obama’s Health care is passing. The House vote is a done deal. The repubs can jump up and down in their playpen but their vote is irrelevant. In the Senate a few Repubs will vote yes.

This is simply a Sotomayor redux. Like her this bill is permanent. Obama knows this. Pass anything, no matter the flaws, it will be amended but never cancelled. Combined with Cap and trade in six months Obama, Pelosi and Reid will have taken over 25% of the US economy. Tell me again how stupid they are. Even if they lose their majorities in 2010–highly unlikely and the Presidency in 2012–they have shaped the US economy for generations.

http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/vaccinations_homes/2009/07/16/236512.html
I had a dream last night. A very peculiar one. I was looking down on congress and it was completely different. Everyone was working as one, quietly and hurriedly, but working as one to repeal all that Obama had done,,, yet going even further. They were moving to repeal more quickly than they are now to push things through. It reminded me like how a surgeon would work who was quietly but quickly working to save his patient. They were not only working to repeal all that Obama had done, but working to remove all trace of his Presidency. Obama was simply gone. He was no where in Washington. Not just Obama, but everyone that was associated with him. There were also massive crowds all around Washington. It was flooded with people but it was all peaceful and congress was doing exactly what all these people wanted. It was a solemn dream,, there were was no cheering,, no happiness in anything. Everything was very serious. Honestly, a very very strange dream. I actually had it just before I woke up.

David2.0 on July 16, 2009 at 10:34 PM

There is at least one Republican saying that!
It’s Jim DeMint, the only truely ethical and courageous politician that I know. His most recent book is called “Saving Freedom: We Can Stop America’s Slide into Socialism”
Before the Sanford stuff hit the fan, Glenn Beck asked Jim DeMint if he could vouch for Sanford. Jim said, well, he’s always been straight with me. Beck asked again, can you vouch for him? Jim, said, uh, no. I don’t think I can do that. He knew something was not right about that guy.

He is the one who is consistently, abeit a bit too quietly, standing up for what is right. He gave a talk to the Senate last night on how the “hate crimes” bill (a rider to a Soldier’s bill) criminalizes thought. He is a far, far better leader than anyone else we have fighting for us, except for Palin. I’d love to see them team up! In fact, we need to all start teaming up!!

Wow! Gave me shivers. Hope it is prophetic. That’s what I meant about a team. Imagine if instead of all this infighting about A leader, we could support everyone who has roughly the same dream of restoring a Free America.
Imagine Palin, DeMint, Romney, and all of the rest going about serving the Country by doing what happened in your dream! It may take going down this road to destruction for awhile before enough people wake up and realize they don’t actually like the fruits of collectivism, but prefer freedom. I just hope it isn’t too late. Thank you for sharing that amazing dream…it helps strengthen my hope!

I think there is little chance of reversing this slide into the abyss of socialist tyranny. Even if the republicans grow a pair, there is too much momentum, too much inertial mass behind the Marxist juggernaught for much hope. Obama is riding a tidal wave of taxation, spending, regulation and corruption that is already crashing on our liberty and when it finally reaches the shore will drown every last freedom and with it the last best hope of man. Rahm it through. Welcome to the ACORN nation. Heaven help us.

He has to get whatever he can out the door before his numbers drop below 50%, and that implies that after the recess is too late.

Can’t the White House once again call upon and mobilize to hit the streets Barry’s “army” of netroots and activists inspired by his election? Like they did with stimulus and the budget last winter? Answering the White House’s call, and emboldened by their hard work and success in electing Barry, an “army” of dozens hit the streets of American lobbying support for his budget.

Even after Barry told his zombies after the election he would be calling upon them again to mobilize to move his agenda, they responded with indifference. One of the more notable epic fails of an administration filled with them.

ChrisB on July 17, 2009 at 10:06 AM

If Mr. Obama gets his plan in, the minute it gets into trouble D.C. will dump all of the insurance plans under it’s control into his system. They did it with retirement system into Social Security and they will have to do it again.

“It takes time and that’s what I expressed to the president today, that I hope we can have flexibility on the timeframe so that we can make the best decisions possible on this monumental challenge,” [Olympia] Snowe said. “Well, I don’t know that he necessarily agreed.”
In fact, Snowe said, the Senate should wait until after the August recess to give senators time to review the combined Finance and HELP committee package and get feedback from constituents.

Snowe is not the best spokeswoman on this, but she has a very valid point–she and possibly other Senators want feedback from their constituents.

Hmmm…if 47 million Americans don’t have health-care insurance, that makes 254 million (84%) who do, who might not take too kindly to being taxed on it, or to be forced to hang on to the same policy forever because the Gubmint prevents them from changing insurers. Then what about all those elderly people whose Medicare benefits will be cut–don’t they VOTE and don’t they need health care more than younger, healthier people?

Feedback from their constituents? Senator Snowe and others will get two earfuls, and self-preservation instincts will lead many Senators to carefully and diplomatically kick this can further down the road, if they can get out on that road and hear that feedback, and look before they leap.

But that’s not the Obama way, to ask people what they think. Thinking people are dangerous to Obama–and he knows it. Gotta jam this down their throats, before they wake up and figure out they’ve been conned.

Only 3 more days and I will have kept my vow of waiting 6 months into this little turd’s term before starting every sentence with “the failed economic policies of Barack Obama….”

Jimmy Carter insulted my strength as an American.
Bill Clinton insulted my morality as an American.
Barack Obama insults my integrity and my intelligence as an American.

6 years in the Navy makes the average person a better BS-er than him. 6 years in college makes most students more knowledgeable than him. 6 years in any private sector job makes most people harder workers than him. 6 years in youth sports makes most people better athletes (and fans)than him. What made this man so unique that he was worthy of election? Answer: his birthright, the most awful prejudice in the world.

In fact, if he had actually applied himself to excellence at any level he wouldn’t be afraid to hear other people, to listen to truly great people express their knowledge, and to be photographed listening, which would contradict his public persona as America’s Professor and self-proclaimed Architect of our new, fair-minded moral consciousness.

I have been telling my black friends for 7 months they would rue the day they elected the most incompetent jackass in history to become the first racial minority Head of State in the Western world. At this rate it will be a long time before we get a second one….
