A telling episode recounted by Senate Finance ranking member Charles Grassley reveals the Obama administration might be more worried than they are letting on that a Republican senator's comparison of the healthcare overhaul to Waterloo might be dangerously close to the truth.
Grassley said he spoke with a Democratic House member last week who shared Obama's bleak reaction during a private meeting to reports that some factions of House Democrats were lining up to stall or even take down the overhaul unless leaders made major changes.
"Let's just lay everything on the table," Grassley said. "A Democrat congressman last week told me after a conversation with the president that the president had trouble in the House of Representatives, and it wasn't going to pass if there weren't some changes made ... and the president says, 'You're going to destroy my presidency.' "
Get this straight: President Barack Obama lies when lying offers the best path to his personal success. He lies with alacrity and without embarrassment.
Before and after his election, he pledged to the American people that those of us who make “less than $250,000 a year would not see a dime in increased taxes”.
Before six months had passed, Obama has already almost passed the biggest tax increase on ALL Americans in our history. Obama hides his tax scam behind the title “Cap and Trade”. All that is needed for Obama to be able to sign that tax increase into law is a vote in a Senate dominated by liberal Democrats. Normal America might yet turn back the Cap and Trade tax, but the prospects are not good. Plan to be hit by a few thousand dollars in new taxes each and every year. Many new cars would cost you less than Obama’s new tax will cost you.
As Obama shoves through his very radical agenda, a tactic has emerged – his need for speed.
Beginning with his “stimulus” scam, he has forced legislators to vote for his proposals before they have a chance to read and consider it. NO member of either House had read the “stimulus” bill. Not a soul. The same “hurry up, shut up, and pass the bill” tactic has been used and is being used in other Obama legislative efforts.
No wonder. Reading and analyzing his radical ideas wont go down well with normal America. Democrats are even opposing legislation that would require those voting on legislation to have read the bill on which they are voting.
Imagine!! Reading what you are being asked to approve and pass into law! What a radical idea – but Rham Emanuel and other denizens of the Socialist Chicago Democrat Machine don't care about democracy as it interferes with their fascist agenda.
