Sen. Judd Gregg On Obamacare, 10.27.2010

Greta interviewed Sen. Judd Gregg (uncut) on Obamacare, 10.27.2010. I enjoyed the fact that Greta just let the senator speak, and speak he does.

I think he (Obama) underestimates the common sense of the American people. When they look at something like this, they say, ‘hold it, this isn’t gonna work. It’s not going to work for me, it’s not gonna work for my family and it certainly not going to work for the country, and we can’t afford it.’

As this bill becomes more and more, as it starts to go into place, as different parts of the bill start to be actually undertaken and put into action, it just keeps delivering bad news to people.  It doesn’t improve our health care system, it doesn’t improve the cost of the health care system, and it certainly doesn’t reduce the size of the government.

An excerpt of the Politico op-ed that Greta is referring to:

Health care: Freddy Krueger lives

President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats promised us that the new law would lower premiums. It has not. Premiums in 2011 will rise more than 12 percent for employer-sponsored coverage, according to a recent Hewitt Associates study. Out-of-pocket costs for workers, meaning co-payments, deductibles and co-insurance, are also likely to rise by almost 13 percent.

We were promised that, if we liked our coverage, we could keep it. But we were misled. The Obama administration recently revealed that employees of nearly 70 percent of U.S. businesses, who get coverage through their job, may lose their current health care plan because of the new regulations. The outlook is even bleaker for employees of small businesses, the backbone of the U.S. economy.

Low-wage workers also stand to suffer as onerous new regulations are implemented. These workers may lose access to their current benefits because the government will prohibit their employers from offering a plan that is affordable and provides substantive benefits for working families. Companies like McDonalds, which help low-income employees with insurance, have put us on notice that they may have to drop coverage.

Common Sense And Batting Practice

TALK ABOUT SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER!

Please let me introduce a comic that really, really, really hates foreign imports, stupid politicians, corruption, wall street, the bailouts….just about everything you and I have been screaming about since 2007.

Why am I telling you this? We all know that if we do not find something to belly laugh about during the absolutely insanity that the geniuses progressive dems, progressive repubs, Wall Street, and the Federal Reserve have plunged us into, we will all end up going mad and/or wasting away.

WAL$STREETPRO2 has incredible rants that include a baseball bat and a foreign made monitor, and if you aren’t laughing so hard that you are crying and suffocating, you may have a serious humor issue.

WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE – Do not play at work or with children in the room.

(Tell me you haven’t felt like a little bit of batting practice in your garage to get some of the angst out of your soul after what this pResident has done and what the last president did?)
