Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

...Biden, Obama, and Reid included, among many others. Reid even railed against such a thing in a book he wrote.

But then again what they say yesterday has no bearing whatever on what they do today. Their words are worthless. It matters not a whit what they say, as their words, when strung together into promises, are worth infinitely less than a single vowel purchased from a Vanna White lookalike on The Wheel of Misfortune.

Oath breakers, obfuscators, Kings and Queens of cover-up, yet knaves, curs, and beyond the pale prevaricators. Jacks of all jerk-arounds, yet masters of mendacity. Surely there is some redeeming quality in them, right?

Nope.

Occasionally a democrat can extricate himself from the collective donkey backside. It's an exceedingly rare anomaly. Sen Carl Levin (D-Michigan) and Sen Mark Pryor (D-Arkansas) spoke eloquently against this vote today, setting a precedent, regarding this precedent.

Levin is retiring in two months, and the Senator from Arkansas, is well, a Senator from Arkansas. Levin no longer has to prostitute himself to the democrat party...as much, any longer, and Pryor is from the south...worried about reelection.

I've heard from no other dissenting democrats today on the issue while viewing C-Span after the Reid rule change. Usually democrats have no ability to lead, and are content to wear the backside of the donkey costume and amble along blindly.

Some of the very folks who screamed bloody murder when the Republicans only threatened this a few years ago, now in hyper-hypocrite fashion support it as "necessary"...

"Today’s unfortunate vote damaged the Senate and was designed to try to change the topic from the millions of Americans losing their jobs and their healthcare because of Obamacare. Just like President Obama promised, ‘if you like your plan, you can keep it,’ so too Harry Reid repeatedly promised he would not use the ‘nuclear option’ to change the Senate rules. Both, sadly, ignored their promises and broke their word. And, in yet another partisan abuse of power, the Democrats are now shamelessly working to pack the DC Circuit, so that President Obama’s lawless disregard of our statutes and Constitution will not be held to account by an impartial judiciary." (Senator Ted Cruz)

The net effect of this rule change has turned the minority party in the U.S. Senate into a figurehead. You cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, think that this is OK.

"WIN AN ELECTION" - Won a few in the House of Reps.

This issue transcends populist B.S. Stop listening to the hyper-GOBGOB being blabbered about by both sides. Senator Levin has no dog in the fight other than the institution of the U.S. Senate and it's integrity.

Look, jaxspp, I don't dislike you, I disagree with you, but I don't dislike you. I enjoy baiting you into ludicrous arguments but this one is really serious.

Put all partisanship aside and read Levin's remarks. Harry Reid has at his disposal every tool he needs to force the filibuster, he has chosen not to use it.

You guys want what you want, Obama spelled it out for you plainly: "WIN AN ELECTION".

Your ideology will consign them to a life of subjugation under a tyrannical government.

You are a Fool.

Harry Reid promised, in January of this year, to enforce the rules regarding filibuster. He has not, to date, done it.

Read Senator Levin's oration. There are ways to force the filibuster that the democratic leadership just will not use.

Understanding the rules is key here, don't just pop off on a "populist" rant. I implore you to read Levin's speech.

So you really, really, REALLY don't get it.

Perhaps they will.

You two can attack me, which is all you have, instead of going after your own party for abusing the filibuster.

"You just don't get it jaxspp. "

Oh I get it. I've got 2 kids and 4 grandkids.

I think jax is looking for a conservative version of the ACA. That is antithetical.

There have been tort reform proposals. There have been intrastate insurance market proposals. There have been proposals that would have allowed HHS to regulate preexisting conditions, caps and just about everything else that the ACA touts as "good things". Most of them were offered as amendments to the ACA but, of course, were tossed out of committee.

And by the way, Conservatives wouldn't take the healthcare market over. They'd allow more free markets to compete. What we have now is a government monopoly, and central planning from Fabian Socialists.

Some "Republicans" (in name only) might vote to take it over somewhat, but Conservatives would not. Libertarians would not either. Not all Republicans are Conservatives of course.

Let's step back. Lindsay Graham is blocking a nomination because the Tea Party is trying to flush him, so he has invoked Benghazi. Has nothing to do with the nominee. So he is holding a nominee hostage for his own political gain, to attempt to score points with The Tea Party. Had it not been for stuff like that today would have never happened. And there is no negotiating with Graham or McConnell about it. You know that.

It's just that Jaxojack-a-s-s has no ability to lead. He can only wear the backside of the donkey costume and amble along blindly.

Hasn't had an independent thought that I have ever heard in this paper. Not ever.

SO Jaxa-s-s. You go ahead and write your letter today, as h*ll freezes over...because if you do, it will.

"..if the GOP gets back in charge I would urge Fact-free and RS to immediately write their Senators urging a reversal of today's abomination, for the long term good of the Republic they are so interested in..."

That is a promise!
