How the GOP wants to spend your money...

Post  Pez on Wed Sep 22, 2010 9:11 am

So the first presumptuous (serious doubts they will win the senate) rumblings are coming out about what Congress plans to do when they take over the majority in the house, and that is apparently to waste MORE money by going for an outright repeal of Obama's health care reforms. This effort is largely rhetorical, as if the president would not veto it. After they fail at an outright repeal they will pick and choose the most egregious portions of the plan and work to repeal those.

Does anyone not see the egregious waste here? Republicans refused to work with Democrats in coming up with a more reasonable health care bill, refused to compromise and instead decided to put their energies toward an all out effort to filibuster it. They lost and failed. As a result, the Health care bill that came out of congress was exactly what the democrats wanted. "Foul!" republicans cried, "you rammed this down our throats!!!"

Now republicans are wanting to change it to be a better program, incorporating more conservative ideas and to temper the program and meet perhaps somewhere closer to half way. Why, pray tell, why did they not do this when the legislation was on the floor? Why do we want to waste and waste and waste more money to do something that the republicans had plenty of opportunity to do before and failed miserably because of their own fake tan arrogance?

You must have forgotten all those close door meetings. The dems were never serious about rep participation.

Chicken/egg... The republicans came up with a plan as I remember, and they refused to pass anything other than their plan. And filibustered and lost.
