Claire McCaskill on Missouri’s anti-ObamaCare vote: Message received

posted at 4:12 pm on August 4, 2010 by Allahpundit

No no, just kidding. She did say that, but naturally the message that voters sent somehow isn’t the message that’s landed in her inbox. As she understands it, the message from last night is, “We’re still too ignorant and/or partisan to understand how great ObamaCare is.” Which fits right in with how she’s spun this boondoggle all along: It’s not the law itself that’s the problem, it’s the fact that Democrats “overpromised” on it. Poor liberals, forever having their ingenious policies tripped up by inept “messaging.”

Good news, though, I guess, for any Missouri voters who meant to signal that their opposition to ObamaCare shouldn’t be taken seriously: Your elected representative has heard you loud and clear.

McCaskill said she understood what Missouri voters had been trying to say about the healthcare reform law for which she had voted in the Senate. But the centrist senator downplayed the vote as a result of heavy Republican primary turnout and a lack of education about the effects of the law.

“I certainly noticed the vote on Prop C, the healthcare law, and: message received,” she said Wednesday in a conference call with state reporters.

“I think there has been … a lot of noise about the mandate that people have gotten so focused on that they don’t realize that there’s going to be more access and affordability and more choices,” she said.

High Republican turnout did contribute to the size of the landslide, but as both Ed and Michael Tanner explained this morning, even a unanimous vote on the GOP side couldn’t have gotten you to 71 percent overall. A lot of indies and Democrats — specifically, Democrats motivated enough to vote in a primary — had to be onboard to push past the supermajority threshold. No wonder Newsweek’s spinning as hard as it is to turn last night into some sort of grand defeat for tea partiers: When you’ve got enough bipartisanship on a core tea-party plank to crack 70 percent in a swing state, you’d better work overtime on the “messaging.”

In fairness to McCaskill, she did mention in passing on today’s conference call that there’s a lot of work to do on “the provisions of the law,” not just in making sure that the benighted doofuses who voted on Proposition C fully understand it. Exit question: Does that mean she’ll join the GOP next term in trying to repeal the mandate? Since, you know, the message has been received and all.

Yes, lots of work on the “provisions” of the law.

Like building a large enough sewer in which to hurl this turd of a law, along with every piece of feces politician who voted for it.

Definitely a “shovel ready” project.

Million dollar question.

If conservatives are serious about repealing this monstrosity and not just whining about it, they must realize that they will need some moderate GOP and Dem votes. I think they will if their is a suitable replacement bill, a repeal and just go back to the status quo wont win any Dems and may lose some Republicans like Snowe and Collins.

This is exactly the party needs more Paul Ryans and less blowhards.

Not a chance, but she’ll probably start voting a lot more conservative over the next couple years in a desperate attempt to con the voters of Missouri in 2012. Look at Ben Nelson’s record since Obamacare(or more specifically since the pizza joint incident) as an example.

Doughboy on August 4, 2010 at 4:22 PM

“I think there has been … a lot of noise about the mandate that people have gotten so focused on that they don’t realize that there’s going to be more access and affordability and more choices,” she said.

Let’s see, the law makes it entirely likely that my office will dump their health care program because it’s cheaper to pay the penalty than to provide health care, so there’s one choice gone.

It makes it more likely that doctors will stop seeing medicare patients because the reimbursements aren’t enough to make it worth their while. So, fewer choices in doctors.

It makes it against the law for me to choose not to have insurance at all. Another choice gone.

Where the heck are all the additional choices she thinks this boondoggle creates?

Unfortunately we are stuck with this witch here until 2012. I can hardly wait to work for whoever runs against her. She is so out of touch with the constituentcy, I mean, come on…71% vote against the Obama agenda and she has the audacity to keep spouting the wonders of the mandate?

She has the Pelosi disease…thinking the people are just too damn stupid to understand how the Democrats are helping them. We are witnessing the beginning of the implosion of the Democrat party. Good riddance.

I was an assistant supervisor at the polls yesterday. I can’t tell you how many people told me they came specifically to the polls to vote against Obamacare. That’s the difference between me and Claire. I listened to the people and saw how really, really ANGRY they were. And this was in a Democrat leaning district. Bye, Claire. You are done.

You’d think they would push through changes actually PROTECTING these minority privileges since they’re going to need them shortly.

Fake8 on August 4, 2010 at 5:01 PM

Consider this choice quote in the Hill from the press call:

“I know that there’s a lot of work we need to do on not just the provisions of the law, but most importantly making sure everyone knows what’s in the law. And I can only be hopeful that as time goes on, more and more people realize the positive things that are in the bill. I do know that this vote very closely reflected the number of people who voted in the Republican primary versus the Democratic primary. But nonetheless, message received. I appreciate the fact that voters are sending a message. I don’t think it has any impact on the law itself, but it is a message. I wish my Republican colleagues in the legislature would pay as much attention to the message that the voters sent on campaign finance in 2007, as I know they will want to pay attention to this one.”

Questioning the legitimacy of an election – check

My constituents are dummies – check

My Intolerable Acts trumps your puny Proposition C so suck it – check

Misdirection to a long dead issue – check

I’m beginning to think that the esteemed Senator truly believes this will all blow over by 2012. The Senator sure ain’t good with dates because 2012 will be right in the sweet spot of what will probably be a completely bollixed implementation of the Intolerable Acts. On the other hand, as another commenter speculated, maybe she believes she’s a one-termer. The only other explanation I can come up with involves a diagnosis from the DSM IV. So many hypotheses, so little time…until November 2012, that is.

The message she acknowledged in receiving is one of many to be sent in NOvember. Her problem is rationalizing that the demonrats cannot be wrong and the electorate will agree with them if they only “educate” them on how great it really is.

http://email.capitolhillnewsonline.com/m/adfQdL4OmdUp-06bYQedFH0eTOQnh9D4fgBRK-3xX8EVXsNyKg

Yup, it includes info on how my health insurance premiums are supposed to go down.

What will happen to my health insurance premiums? According to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), costs will go down as more people are covered. Currently, families pay a hidden $1,000 tax in higher premiums as hospitals and insurance companies shift the costs of treating the uninsured to those with insurance.

But wait a minute…if ObamaCare is going to cover everybody, aren’t there still costs associated with providing health care for all of those people who were previously uninsured?

If the Republicans didn’t get a good message from last evenings result to run on in November they need their collective backsides kicking.

The Dems are so vulnerable for November and Ms Claire McCaskill is a classic observation of how obtuse this Ruling Class really are!

Repealing the mandate means it can’t be funded. The only way a Democrat will agree to repealing the mandate is to force a new tax and then go to a single payer system.

Without the mandate, there is no way the health care reform can be funded. Period.

So, it’s one extreme or the other. Full fledged single payer system or dismantling the entire law.

When you are in such a lofty position to scatter peals before swine, you have to reckon most of the pearls will just end up in the mud, trampled by the swine…

How in the hell do such people stay elected?

I guess nobody else wanted the job?

Claire McCaskill on Missouri’s anti-ObamaCare vote: Message received

No, Claire, you haven’t received the message yet. You’ll be receiving it in November.

Senator Claire McCaskill is up for re-election in 2012.
I sure hope there is a strong Republican candidate in the wings getting warmed up to challenge her in 2012!

If she’s that vulnerable perhaps the DNC won’t risk her seat. They may “encourage” her to drop out in favor of a stronger Democrat candidate. Not like that hasn’t been done before.

I have donated thousands of dollars to Jim Talent over the years and I hear he is planning a rematch against her. She is not in his intellectual ballpark.

McCaskill is a liar and a political whore, don’t trust this woman at all. She is the ugly face of the SEUI and unions in MO.
