Obama: Support my giant boondoggle or America will go bankrupt

posted at 4:48 pm on December 16, 2009 by Allahpundit

This has always been the lamest, least convincing argument in his arsenal — I have yet to see a poll this year, I think, that shows people think costs will decrease under ObamaCare — but he’s been pushing it since the beginning and evidently will do so to the bitter end. “Doomsday Orszagism,” Kaus calls it, in honor of The One’s budget guru. The idea is simple: Nothing but nothing but nothing can save America from the impending Medicare apocalypse except whatever crappy bill Reid can squeeze out of 60 votes. No new taxes, no social security reform, no spending cuts elsewhere in the budget, and certainly no overhaul of Medicare itself will do the trick. This is it. Give Obama what he wants or else we fall into the ocean. I wonder how many more times he thinks he has to repeat this to turn the polls around if they haven’t turned already.

Meanwhile, don’t look now but Madam Speaker is hinting rather strongly that ObamaCare ain’t happening this year:

In the case of health care reform, Pelosi credited House Democrats with having saved Obama’s initiative after the onslaught of attacks during the August recess. And if the Senate can complete its bill this month, she will work to try to send a House-Senate compromise to the White House before the State of the Union

Matching the House bill against the still-evolving Senate package, she said she saw differences of affordability for families and the revenue-raisers that would have to be negotiated. But she downplayed differences over the public option for coverage, saying the emphasis had always been on giving consumers an insurance option, not that it be public or government run.

A “House-Senate compromise” sure makes it sound like the ping-pong strategy is dead (as expected), which means Reid is going to have to run his gauntlet again next month — assuming he can find 60 this month, which seems unlikely. Exit question via Spruiell: Where are the votes coming from in the House if the final bill has no public option? There aren’t enough progressives to push it through. Click the image to watch.

How many times will the President cry wolf?

Dear Barry,

Instigating desperate, entitlement-minded, uneducated people on the South Side of Chicago ( one of the great, stinking arm pits of the world) to shake down banks and corporations is not the same as leading a nation of independent people.

You don’t know us. We’re those people who live in “Flyover Country” who fend for ourselves, give to our neighbors in need, pick up the pieces when disaster strikes and never thinking about a government hand out. We’re those “typical white folks” you seem to acknowledge yet do not know. If you do, you ignore us on purpose.

But you know as well as we do that we are here. We are not leaving. You can’t get rid of us. We’re not alone, either. We are not. Check the statistics. It isn’t a racial thing. That’s the bad news for you.

Listen up, Barry, you got a good deal, as always. You could quit today and make billions just playing the race card. Go for it. Make your money, leave us alone, admit that we simply weren’t ready for your brilliance (I know as well as you that you were born in a manger.) Just do it. Take the ph$uckin’ money and run. MO will be happy, too.

And we will be blessed. Do it now.

Just Jump!

Kindest regards,

Cody

But he did get a B+, leave him alone.

In all honesty I can’t believe he answered that question.

lavell12 on December 16, 2009 at 4:56 PM

That reminds me of the Democrat debates early last year when someone asked the remaining candidates (Obama, Clinton, Edwards and maybe someone else) what their biggest personal flaw is.

Hillary knew to compliment herself by saying something like “I’m too eager to do too much good too fast”, Edwards also said something that complimented himself. Obama went first and said something like “I misplace things a lot.”

After the debate Obama said, “I should have guessed what the game was with that question.” Really. Everyone who’s ever had a job interview expects that question and knows “what the game is” with it.

Obama is beyond inexperienced in government. He’s inexperienced in the plain ol’ nuts and bolts of experience that most people have by the time they’re 21.

So, of course he answered Oprah’s question. He doesn’t know any better.

“America will go bankrupt unless I,me,my and Democrat agendas are held in check by Republicans and Independents,” is what Obama’s conscience — if he had one that could fit in his head alongside that HUGE EGO — meant to say.

Anyone notice the Democrat Party has tried kneecapping any big business they can in the United States?
They have successfully shut down the oil companies from fully functioning and expanding within the U.S. borders, they’re working on kneecapping the health care industry, they’re trying to kneecap other manufacturing with pollution mandates, they’re trying to kneecap banking and Wall Street.
This country is being brought to its knees by this political party, and marches onward to a one party dictatorship with increasing fervor.
And you can see how they are ignoring the peoples wishes and complaints. Complain and you are labeled a Nazi, by the very people that are performing like Nazi’s in their every action.
Our country and way of life is under serious threat by this Party and its leaders. Examine any functioning dictatorship you know of today, and you will discover many similarities between their people and government, and ours.

Spend trillions more or we will go bankrupt??

Sounds like the perspective of someone who has never had to raise and spend their own money, or manage their own budget, or run a payroll, or a small business…in short, a dyed-in-the-wool socialist.

Pass this Health Care/Obamacare/Health Insurance Fraud and we most certainly will see a national bankruptcy a lot sooner than one could have ever imagined.

There is no Chapter 17 (or 13) for government when it exceeds its ability to pay what it owes (to fund obligations already on the books, or obligations that are Constitutionally mandated.)

So, Mr. President…how does taking on several trillions in further obligations serve to properly tend to those obligations already on the books? Print more money, is that the answer? Can’t rob from Mommy’s purse to cover your losses of lunch money when you are dealing with the national debt. Raise the debt ceiling? Sure, that ATM on the corner simply prints more money. It isn’t the bank’s money. So, what does it matter? Need more? Hit the ATM. Lots of people have lost the farm trying that move. Quite a few ended up in prison for such schemes.

This guy and his posse are so far from reality it looks as if they exist in a different reality altogether.

Perhaps, that is Obama’s end game. Put the United States out of business. Then allow the creditors to take over. Allow the creditors to set the new rules. Surrender our national sovereignty because Bush, after all, left us with a “huge” debt?

As each day goes forward, this Administration is becoming more and more dangerous.

Precipice? Indeed.

Thus, 2010, in a few short months, really, taking back Congress and sending all those who support Obama’s hair-brained schemes out of town on a rail, is our first best option. Getting our act together for 2012, dumping Obama and his posse, is our second best option.

After that, there appears to be no other options…except those dictated to us by Obama and his minions.

Be fair. He said that if we didn’t support the stimulus bill then employment would hit 9 percent. Well, I did not support the stimulus bill, and unemployment did hit 9 percent, so he was right on that one.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jacob-heilbrunn/obamas-state-of-the-union_b_169325.html

Not since Ronald Reagan has an American president in his early months enjoyed as high approval ratings as does Barack Obama. A new New York Times/CBS News poll indicates that three-quarters of Americans back President Obama. It’s further confirmation not only of Obama’s extraordinary political skills, but also the precipice that the GOP hasn’t approached but actively leaped over. When Obama delivers the State of the Union address Tuesday, he will wield the one of the most powerful hands history has ever bestowed upon an American president.

Obama will undoubtedly seize the opportunity to sketch out his program for American renewal, both in domestic and foreign policy. His speech, I predict, will not only be seen as a pivotal moment in restoring American democracy, but also an epitaph for the conservative movement that has finally run American into the ground.

By 2010, the GOP’s refusal to vote for the stimulus bill will been seen a as decisive event in the party’s fortunes–for the worse. Had the party cooperated with the president, it might have been able to resuscitate itself. The Times/CBS poll indicates that Americans are displaying great patience and don’t expect the economy to turn around any time soon. But they have seen through the GOP’s charade of purporting to stand for fiscal discipline–after plunging the country into $1 trillion of debt over the past eight years.

The conservative movement is now officially dead. All that remains is for the pallbearers to carry the casket to its burial site. Obama’s speech Tuesday will provide the funeral oration.

Beneath this mask I am wearing a frown
My tears are falling like rain from the sky
Is it for healthcare or myself that I cry

What have I done to deserve such a fate
I realize I have left it too late
And so it’s true, pride comes before a fall

I think all these fear mongering tactics by the left need to be harped on in a much louder voice – but props to AP for actually covering it in the first place.

This is the same fear mongering that is being push by the left with global warming, the stimulus, or any other legislation they are pushing thru.

It never ends with these people. I do think we are at a tipping point of enlightenment where America collectively wakes up to the lefts tactics. Sarah Palin also may be a big help expose their tactics of smear and fear.

Is keeping these boondoggles afloat the reason why people have to pay into this newest boondoggle system for four years?

How exactly does adding more mandates of coverage and of clients keep the country out of bankruptcy? (Is is possible to be more bankrupt than we already are?)

Does Charles Gibson have the intelligence to ask for a clarification of ObaMao on this idiotic two-step?

ted c on December 16, 2009 at 7:56 PM

The president laid out a dire scenario of what will happen if his health care reform effort fails.

If we don’t pass it, here’s the guarantee….your premiums will go up, your employers are going to load up more costs on you,” he said. “Potentially they’re going to drop your coverage, because they just can’t afford an increase of 25 percent, 30 percent in terms of the costs of providing health care to employees each and every year.

The president said that the costs of Medicare and Medicaid are on an “unsustainable” trajectory and if there is no action taken to bring them down, “the federal government will go bankrupt.”

“This actually provides us the best chance of starting to bend the cost curve on the government expenditures in Medicare and Medicaid,” Obama said.

If employers must match the mandates set by the “governmnet plan,” then, of course, the costs of insurance will go up for everyone. Employers will be forced to dump their employees into a government plan, which will raise the taxes (on those who pay taxes). If employers have to cut their work force in order to maintain profitability when faced with the higher premiums that a “government plan” mandates in order to provide phony “competition,” then taxes will have to rise…and the type of coverage will be less-than-stellar or wholly inappropriate.

Ultimately, I have to ask why health insurance coverage is even a federal issue. Shouldn’t the problems of the uninsured be addressed at the state level?

onlineanalyst on December 16, 2009 at 7:56 PM

I just learned that a possibility exists that Nancy Pelosi has the capability of reconciling the two bills (if some form of a Senate bill passes) without engaging the Senate in that reconciliation process. In other words, the House can do the reconciliation work and then vote on the sausage.

You haven’t been watching (or reading Ayn Rand). They aren’t going to follow any rules they find inconvenient. Sanders did not have the right to stop the reading of the bill. No one cared. So if they decide to just not read the bill aloud (they’ve already admitted they’re not going to read it to themselves) they just won’t. And there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.

Keep in mind, while they refuse to follow their own rules, they will keep insisting (at the point of a gun) that WE keep following them. We’ve been letting them get away with this behavior for decades, they have no reason to think they have to change tactics now.
