Today’s AYFKM? Award: Senate Dems To Limit Insurance Execs Pay

YEE-HAW!  We have a few more of these Saturday votes and you won’t be paying attention anymore when the fascists-in-charge take away all American and capitalist tenets and really turn the country red.  Let’s not forget that this is coming from the people who keep voting themselves pay raises and office budget increases.  At this point, term limits are looking like a mild form of redress.

How big a leap is it from “curb the pay of executives at health insurance companies that benefit from federal subsidies” to curb the pay of all executives at health insurance companies, to curb the pay of all executives, period?  I mean we “let them” start down this particular slippery slope of manure with the financial industry, so don’t you dare be putting the blame anywhere else than exactly where it needs to be placed; liberal democrats, republicans that walked hand in hand with their progressive socialist democrat brethren, Barack Obama, and George Bush who said, “I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system” (AYFKM?!!).  I would include the rest of us in the blame, but we actually are that small percentage that has always had their heads screwed on straight, knows how to stick to a budget, and were against all the bailouts and freebies that both Bush and Obama have been tossing like moldy bread out to the roman crowd.

Senate Democrats targeting the pay of health insurance executives

Senate Democrats will offer an amendment this weekend to curb the pay of executives at health insurance companies that benefit from federal subsidies, fueling the growing feud with the powerful industry.

Sens. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) have sponsored an amendment that would prohibit health insurance companies from deducting more than $400,000 in executive compensation per individual. The cap would apply to companies that earned 25 percent or more of their income from Americans who buy insurance from government-created exchanges.

How many insurance companies are going to offer insurance in a government created exchange 5, 10, 20 years from now?

Today’s Idiots In Charge Award Goes To Senate Democrats…

…for approving a climate change bill while Republicans boycotted the meeting.  This speaks to the last article I just posted about the spoiled democrats doing whatever they want without so much as a “by your leave” to the American People. Once again, a massive issue that requires thoughtful deliberation and statemanship; both of which are sorely lacking in the juvenile Democratic Party.

Does one single democrat realize how much their tantrums, name-calling, and sneaky backroom maneuvering is traumatizing the entire nation, and more than likely, giving our allies in the world a moment of pause?

Senate panel approves Democratic climate bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on Thursday approved a Democratic climate change bill that would require industry to cut emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases 20 percent by 2020 from 2005 levels.

With Republicans boycotting the committee’s work saying more analysis of the legislation was needed, 10 Democrats voted to approve the legislation and one Democrat, Senator Max Baucus, voted against it.

The bill will now become one of several initiatives aimed at attacking global warming. Senator John Kerry is leading an effort with some Republicans and the White House to craft a compromise bill, which likely would not be voted on by the full Senate until next year at the earliest.

Just keep slapping the American public in the face and see what happens next…
