Un-freakin’-believable. Sen. Lamar Alexander moving toward Obamacare? This bill has set a precedent for a tyrannical congressional majority passing a blatantly un-Constitutional bill, forcing Americans to buy something to comply with citizenship.
This argument should not be about repeal or change; it should be about IMPEACHMENT.
Why are the Republicans talking about ‘changing the law’ when Republicans and Democrats should be drawing up impeachment articles for a pResident that purports to be a constitutional law professor yet signs a bill that does not Protect and Uphold the Constitution?
Right is right, wrong is wrong.
Do your #1 job – PROTECT AND UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION!
Republicans expect at least “big changes” to the new health reform law as a result of their efforts, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said Thursday.
Alexander, the third-ranking Republican member of the Senate, predicted that Republicans would be able to force major changes to the new healthcare system amidst pledges by many GOP candidates that they would seek to repeal the plan in its entirety.
The Tennessee Republican said he agreed with President Barack Obama’s assertion that the healthcare bill was a proxy for a debate over the role in government in the U.S.
“And that’s the debate we’re going to have this year, and it’s going to define every congressional race,” Alexander told the editorial board of the Chattanooga Times Free Press. “I think the healthcare bill will be the biggest symbol of it.”
“As a result of that debate, I think there going to be at least big changes in the bill,” Alexander added.
No WHINING! Just get the job done! Are you American Representatives or Nazis just following orders?
But already, some Republicans have tempered their rhetoric on repeal, including Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), as well as Rep. Mark Kirk, a Republican candidate for Senate in Illinois.
Those more measured pledges reflect the difficulty facing Republicans in their plans, even if they were to pick up the number of seats predicted in the most generous estimates of this fall’s elections. Democrats would still be able to throw up procedural roadblocks in Congress, and Obama could veto any legislation to repeal his signature domestic policy.
At least one Republican, Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), did though suggest that the GOP is examining its options to sidestep a presidential veto in order to repeal healthcare law.
