Alternate Names for the “Repealing The Job Killing Health Care Law Act”

posted at 10:00 am on January 18, 2011 by Jimmie Bise, Jr

For reasons I can’t quite fathom, progressives have decided that one of the big stories this week should be whether or not Speaker Boehner will change the name of the “Repealing The Job Killing Health Care Law Act”. Apparently, “job killing” is now verboten speech, lest some barely-hinged right winger mistake a Democrats for a job and kill…wait…mistake a Democrat for Obamacare and…

…okay, I’m baffled here. I don’t know why this is a story except that it involves the word “killing”, which is violent rhetoric, and violent rhetoric is wrong.

To Boehner’s credit, he toyed around with a few alternate phrasings, such as “job crushing” and “job destroying”, but they didn’t send the requisite tingle down Chris Matthews leg so he went back to the original name.

However, I am in possession of a super secret, ultra-classified list of names the GOP had considered to replace the “Repealing The Job Killing Health Care Law Act”. At the risk of running afoul of Dick Cheney’s Haliburton Ninja Death Squads, I will share them with you now.

5) The “We’re Not Going to Grind Gramma Into An Edible but Nutritious Slurry Act”.
4) The “Sarah Was Right; There Really Are Death Panels Act”.
3) The “Dear God in Heaven, What Were We Thinking Act”.
2) The “We’re In Charge, So How Do You Like Us Now Act”.
1) The “Happy Cuddle Puppies Nuzzle Wuzzle Act”.

I’m glad they stuck with the original. Sure, it’s a bit of a mouthful, but it gets the point across. Obamacare will (and has already) killed jobs and, like a villain in a slasher movie, it’s just getting warmed up. The only way to stop it is to burn it with legislative fire, and the Tea Parties brought the torches last November. The progressives want very much to sidetrack us with silly arguments about whether this phrase or that “goes too far”, but their ploy has failed. All that remains is to point and laugh at them, then go on to killing the Obamacare beast.

Puh-leeze! The Dems so don’t want a public debate about whether or not Obamacare is a job killer. They can’t afford to allow the public to “see what’s in it.”

A. It’s true.
B. It has a ring to it.
C. It would probably poll fairly well. OK, just guessing, but I kind of feel it.

On the downside, Minnesota’s Senatorette might have an issue with it, but on the whole, I think this is a winner.

We Dare you to Veto it Act

Thought about adding to it as in: We Dare you to Veto the repeal of your hideous signature issue that will bankrupt the nation, destroy personal liberty and bring us death panels for real Act.

Nevertheless, I decided that was too long.

So:

We Dare you to Veto it Act

And one could “set one’s watch” that some Alinsky loving pro-abort “yahoo” like you would try to pick a target, freeze it, isolate and polarize it with your low and loathsome ridicule.

Unborn children, as long as they are being murdered with the approval of the likes of you (unless you work in a mill and/or actually do abortions; do you?) need and are regularly defended at HA by scores of real and men and women of class and intellect. And they aren’t “going to sit down and shut up” (h/t Sarah P.) and they couldn’t care less about some faceless “yahoo” whose “brave” words and tiresome and typical name calling in favor of the most cowardly act on earth tell us all we need to know.

Nice Leftist censorship attempt, though. Doesn’t go over to well at HA. I think I hear Huffpo calling you. Something about your lame and useless posting…

How about, “The ‘if we don’t repeal this monstrosity, the government will own you’ Act”

The latest nonsense from progressives is that OCare actually creates jobs, of course, neglecting to mention that most of them are in the IRS, in pseudo-government healthcare, and for the army of additional lawyers, consultants and accountants that companies will need to make sense of the law.

So sure, people will be hired, but imagine what businesses could do with the money they’re throwing away to understand (or avoid) impacts of the bill. And seriously, over 100,000 new IRS agents? Are those the kinds of “jobs” we want to create?

How about the “Guest Bloggers Aren’t The Comedians They Think They Are” Act?

fusionaddict on January 18, 2011

I think this blog is great! I love the posts! With all that is going on in this Country right now, we could all use a little humor.

Don’t be such a stick in the mud.

I’ll agree with fusion on this one. With Ed almost always, and AP mostly, the focus is on the story with some snark and humor in the commentary. In some of these, the “story” is the snark. I’d rather know what’s going on driving the story with the snark along for the ride than the snark driving the whatever bus can easily be made fun of rather than what are the important stories of the day.

Just listened to Wasserman Schultz lie on the floor of the House claiming that Obama never said that instead of getting five tests at the doctor’s office, patients would instead get one.

He said that very thing on March 20, 2010 addressing her, in person (if she was there) at the Visitor Center.

“And that’s before we count all the game-changing measures that are going to assure, for example, that instead of having five tests when you go to the doctor you just get one; that the delivery system is working for patients, not just working for billings. ”

Cuz Obama knows that they’re just doing it to be rich. Not for patient care, not for protection from the drooling trial lawyers, just because doctors are greedy. That’s why they go into medicine, you know.

I hope her tumor was discovered on the first test, not the fifth…
