House Republicans Inexplicably Throw President Obama a Lifeline.

Today the Establishment House Republicans passed a two page Bill intended to keep President Obama’s demand to “allow” Insurance Companies to continue offering plans to those that have them even when they do not meet the New Requirements of Obama Care Constitutional.  This effort is too clever by half as Insurance Companies must get approval from the States Insurance Commissions… then get the plans and plan holders re-instated… and then they will only be good for an additional year, only to become illegal again.  It’s stupid.  But still illustrates something.

In other words, The Republicans are trying to assist the President in remaining within the intended, written, carefully crafted confines of the U.S. Constitution.

The President has vowed to Veto this Bill should Harry Reid allow it through the Democrat Controlled Senate.

Why?

Only two reasonable explanations can exist.

Either President Obama has assumed dictatorial control of the United States and invalidated the U.S. Constitution… in his own mind.

Or, The President has no intention of “allowing” you to keep your insurance and is yet again Lying, Misleading or Prevaricating in order to by more time.  This additional time would be used to paint the Insurance Companies as being at fault because they will not be able to do what the President is magically demanding they do… because of his own law.

I’m sure the President would not want to see the entire Health Insurance System Implode, leaving you with no choice but to secure Expensive Insurance with Coverage you do not need or pay Draconian Fines enforced by the friendly folks at the IRS.  When I say coverage you do not need, the odds are you will never require a Pap Smear and Prostate Exam.  Unless… never mind.

I’m also sure the President could not possibly consider himself above the Constitution of the United States.  That means he would have to think the laws do not apply to him or his Administration… or for that matter His Party.  All of that would be grounds for Impeachment, and that would be ridiculous.

So he is a Space Alien.

Mystery Solved.

Could be all three…  I’ll have to spend some time drinking about that.


The Government is Not your Friend.

Government is Not your Brother

Government is Not your Sister

And Government is Certainly Not your Parent.

Government is your Employee.

So, if you find out your Employee has committed you to Spending Obligations which have accumulated more Debt than you will ever be able to pay off what do you do?

Most Likely you would fire that Employee and Press Charges, priding yourself on your physical restrain.  Of course those “Obligations” would not be realized…

Except… you can’t do any of those things.

And knowing this, the Employee then looks you right in the eye and says:

“I will not negotiate on anything when it comes to your full faith and credit!”

He then goes on to say:

“You need to pay out bills on time.”

Finally he concludes by demanding you extend his credit limit so he can buy more stuff since he has no money.  Or else!

You already have less than nothing…

What do you do now?

Claim Bankruptcy?

Shoot Yourself?

Let Him have his way and wait for the inevitable Doom?

Let’s look at this another way…

Let’s say for the sake of the argument that Government is your Teenager.  Your Teenager has maxed out all his credit cards, is driving a New Lamborghini and Lives in a Mansion.  All of which he used Your credit to buy.

Preparing yourself for tears and excuses followed by apologies, you confront him.

He looks you straight in the eye and demands you buy him more stuff and then let’s you know about all the other stuff he has purchased which he expects you to pay for.  Oh… and he tapped your phone, e-mail and bank accounts…

Here we are folks.  This is not a party issue.  There is plenty of blame to go around.  But just because everybody shares some guilt here doesn’t entitle those now there to continue behaving in the fashion that got us here.

I know that would make them angry…  I know it IS making them angry that we are even talking about it.

But it’s time for all of us out here to be Grown Up’s.  Because there is nobody else who can stop them.


Will Harry Reid and the Democrat Controlled Senate Shut Down the Government?

Will the Senate Shut Down the Government by trying to send the bill back to the House?

Will they try to strip the defunding of a Wildly Unpopular piece of legislation against the Will of the American People?

Will Harry Reid try every Dirty Trick in the Book to avoid a Vote?

Do the Democrats Hate individual freedom so much that they will force a Draconian Health Care System on us while Exempting all Their Friends?

Stay Tuned and let’s see if these are the questions asked on every News and Opinion show across all the Networks for the next week?
