AYFKM? Washington Needs To Reassure America

AYFKM? Washington Needs To Reassure America

Today’s AYFKM? Award goes to Barack Obama, not for using the nuclear option to shove Obamacare down our throats, but for this statement:

“At stake right now is not just our ability to solve this problem, but our ability to solve any problem. The American people want to know if it’s still possible for Washington to look out for their interests and their future,” Obama said at the White House.

ARE YOU FREAKIN’ KIDDING ME? I cannot stop laughing at this jackass.

We have known that Obamacare was not dead and was going to be passed using reconciliation. We’ve known for months that the Barry, Harry, Nancy show was all about what the democrats want because this may be the last time in a very long time that they have this type of power.  Obama does not care what we want because we are too stupid to understand the messenger and, therefore, should not be making any decisions.  The insanity of the above statement is doubled when coupled with the polling numbers that show a majority of Americans feel the economy is the #1 issue in the country, NOT HEALTH CARE.  I know that health care is an integral part of the economic puzzle, but Obamacare does not create jobs, it shuts companies down.

Obama and his crew KNOW we don’t want this, but it does not matter.   He wants to reassure us that they do actually have our best interests at heart.  Are you buying it?  Now who is living in ‘my little pony world’?

Obama: ‘Congress owes the American people a final vote on healthcare’

President Barack Obama launched the end-game on healthcare Wednesday, urging Congress to “finish its work.”

Obama said he believed the Congress owed the American people a final up or down vote on healthcare reform, but did not use the word reconciliation.

Instead, the president pointed to past examples of landmark and costly legislation that had been approved through the use of the rules, which prevent a filibuster from being used against budget-related measures in the Senate.

He also said he didn’t not see how more negotiations would help resoved continued differences between Republicans and Democrats “giiven the honest and substantial differences between the parties”

No matter which approach is favored, he said, “I believe the U.S. Congress owes the American people a final vote on healthcare reform. (emphasis mine)

Spinning, spinning, spinning.  Spinning like a top…

“Reform has already passed the House with a majority, it has already passed the Senate with a super major with 60 votes,” Obama continued. “And now it deserves the same kind of up-or-down vote that was cast on welfare programs, that was used on the children’s health insurance program… and the Bush tax cuts, all of which passed Congress with a simple majority.”

WE DID NOT WANT EITHER OF THOSE BILLS, and the dems passed them anyway.

Republicans have warned Democrats they will lose control of Congress if they push healthcare reform through Congress with the use of reconciliation rules.

Imagine that!  Surprised?

Obama described healthcare reform as a test of whether the political system is capable of tackling the nation’s biggest issues.

“At stake right now is not just our ability to solve this problem, but our ability to solve any problem. The American people want to know if it’s still possible for Washington to look out for their interests and their future,” Obama said at the White House.

Obama acknowledged that the year-long quest for healthcare reform has bruised him and the Democrats who control Congress. “I don’t know how this plays politically, but I know it’s right. And so I ask Congress to finish its work, and I look forward to signing this reform into law,” he said.

And I look forward to electing candidates that will repeal this un-Constitutional and un-American law as soon as humanly possible.

Have you ever seen a pResident break as many promises as Obama has? Have you ever seen a pResident get so little productive work actually done?

Wait until you see the savings from the ‘spending freeze’ in the water jug example.

Will Lobbyists Please Return To The White House…

Will Lobbyists Please Return To The White House…

Just so you know that Obama is ‘just words’ and not matching actions.  The only transparency occurring in this administration are the lies.

After Obama rips lobbyists, K St. insiders get private briefings

A day after bashing lobbyists, President Barack Obama’s administration has invited K Street insiders to join private briefings on a range of topics addressed in Wednesday’s State of the Union.

The Treasury Department on Thursday morning invited selected individuals to “a series of conference calls with senior Obama administration officials to discuss key aspects of the State of the Union address.”

The invitation, which went to a variety of stakeholders, was sent by Fred Baldassaro, a senior adviser at the Treasury Department’s Office of Business Affairs and Public Liaison.

The invitation stated, “The White House is encouraging you to participate in these calls and will have a question and answer session at the end of each call. As a reminder, these calls are not intended for press purposes.”

The calls are scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, with the first topic being job creation and economic growth.

Another call, at 1 p.m., is on government reform and transparency. Republicans have criticized the Obama White House for not being more transparent in its discussions with Congress on healthcare reform. Obama recently acknowledged that the legislative process has not been as open as he promised on the campaign trail.

Other issues that will be addressed on Thursday include education, climate change and healthcare reform.

A handful of lobbyists told The Hill on Thursday morning that they received the invitations and were planning to call in.

Some lobbyists say they are extremely frustrated with the White House for criticizing them and then seeking their feedback. Others note that Democrats on Capitol Hill constantly urge them to make political donations.

One lobbyist said, “Bash lobbyists, then reach out to us. Bash lobbyists [while] I have received four Democratic invitations for fundraisers.”

For example, lobbyists and others were invited to a teleconference with “senior Obama administration officials” on Monday to discuss the administration’s plan to improve the lives of middle-class families.

The invitation, which is addressed to “Friends,” emphasizes in bold and italics that “this call is for background information only and not intended for press purposes.” It advises callers to tell the operator “you’re joining the ‘White House Briefing Call.’ ”
