Democrats Approach Ramming Speed

Four months left until the November election. Time is running out on the Obama agenda.

Not the time to ease up, but to push harder because soon it will be too late.

Democrats are approaching ramming speed trying desperately to complete the picture, having taken over the health care system by a hair.

Chris Dodd, the Senator from Aetna and Fannie Mae, has put together financial reforms which create new bureaucracies without addressing underlying structural issues, causing even Russ Feingold to object.

Harry Reid and Henry Waxman are maneuvering to get cap-and-trade passed, a job destroying measure while Democrats misleadingly excoriate Republicans over the failure to extend unemployment benefits.

Obama today raises the stakes, announcing a big immigration reform push, while refusing to strengthen border security.

We have seen this movie before:
The larger political message of this new proposal is that Mr. Obama and Democrats have no intention of compromising on an incremental reform, or of listening to Republican, or any other, ideas on health care. They want what they want, and they're going to play by Chicago Rules and try to dragoon it into law on a narrow partisan vote via Congressional rules that have never been used for such a major change in national policy. If you want to know why Democratic Washington is "ungovernable," this is it.
We know the ending:

  1. All that is really left is card check.

  2. It would be consolable if there were enough Republicans that had the integrity to quit backing down when challenged.

    What will happen if they regain control? I am not hopeful that anything will be repealed or rolled back. They will take the legislation given and try to show us they can run the programs better.

    Remember inaguration day when the pres something like we will look at what works, what doesn't, and get rid of what doesn't? How is that working? How much we got rid of? He wouldn't know an honest day's work if it kicked him in the butt.

  3. Where can I begin - he plays the same game:

    Let's propose legislation just before a long holiday weekend.

    Let's propose immigration reform when people are focused on the oil spill, joblessness and the tensions in the middle east.

    Let's get people so confused at election time they won't be able to organize to fight us.

  4. the Dems are trying to do as much as possible to rub people the wrong way....baiting, if you will, the American citizens into violent action to justify the last step of their agenda, which is martial law. I'm praying that the Republicans see this and are letting the Ds hang themselves. Make no bones about it, this administration is in collusion with forces that want to take over America from within....using her strengths against her.
