Obama Has New Plan For ObamaCare

The President used his weekly address today to urge Republicans and Democrats to work together during the upcoming Healthcare Summit to pass ObamaCare.  Let me be clear, I continue to call this monstrosity ObamaCare because this is still ObamaCare we are talking about, not healthcare reform.  The Democrats have been unable to put together their two bills and so the President has stepped in and will present his own plan using pieces from both bills.  Is this not a complete and utter act of ignoring the American people?  We have rejected both bills.  The Republicans have rejected both bills.  The President wants to bring the Republicans inside to help develop a new plan.  And he formulates his own plan using the rejected bills?!  This is not bi-partisanship! 

The Marxist Progressive vein snaking through the government continues even as the President plays bait and switch and talks out of both sides of his mouth.  Reuters is reporting that the new agreement will be a combined budget reconciliation bill.  This means that the bill will only need 51 votes in the Senate to pass this piece of garbage.  So what is the point of a summit?  The Republicans should not attend this meeting at all.  Instead, they should schedule a press conference and present their own bills – one from the House and one from the Senate.

There is rumor that there will be items that would be attractive to Republicans in the plan, but as long as those ideas are enclosed in a bill that also contains healthcare decision boards, a public option and increased taxes, the Republicans should do nothing but burn the bill.  The Republicans would like to slowly dismantle the healthcare system we have now and rebuild it and that seems to be the best plan.  Because any overhaul the Democrats have in mind is actually an overthrow of freedom.

One response to “Obama Has New Plan For ObamaCare

  1. It is a simple plan: If the Republicans attend, give lipservice to their ideas, completely ignore those ideas and then when they vote against the bill blame them, saying that reconciliation was needed because the Reps were stonewalling. Or, if the Republicans don’t show up, simply cancel the first step.

    Republicans have their own plan, however, which is to load the bill up with so many amendments and demand debate on those amendments as to slowly kill the bill.

    They should also come out and rail against “one party rule” if they try this tactic.
