Harry Reid Is Right About Obama

On Tuesday Ed Schultz went ballistic about Senator Harry Reid’s comments concerning President Barrack Obama not being forceful with the Republicans. <See video below>. Yes Ed Schultz is correct that Senator Reid should have been forceful himself long ago. None the less I am tired of playing “make believe” about Barrack Obama! I voted for Obama because I just loved what the right winger’s were saying about him!

From listening to these Republican lovers of the corporate collectivization of America you quickly learned they were scared of Barrack Obama! They claimed he was going to use his considerable rhetorical skills to usher in the new Socialist Motherland in America!  Hell he has barely used his rhetorical skills in the Presidency. He is no FDR, JFK or Ronald Reagan! And as for the laws he has passed, they are so watered down and wimpy they fit his signature! –  MEOW!

To Big To Fail: Time To Break Up The Banks

I believe the Democratic Bill is still to weak! We need to break up the big banks. While I like the “Young Turks” (See video below) I question how the banks are going to raise the money for payments into the new  Insurance Fund! We know that the money is going to come from higher interest rates on mortgages and credit cards to pay for their casino insurance  fund. I prefer to break them up right now from the start! Let me ask my readers a very important question!

When are Democrats going to deal with the issue of “USURY”? Some credit card companies are setting their rates at 29.9%. That is economic slavery! Where are the Democrats? President Obama has received heavy campaign contributions from Wall Street and the Health Insurance Industry! Yes I still support Obama and I realize that in this day and era a candidate needs money. But the time has come to stand up for the Silent Majority of America’s Middle Class! BAN USURY plain and simple! Break up the big financial institutions. To big to fail means to big to exist in a free society!

Senator Judd Gregg Versus The Middle Class

I heard a segment of Senator Judd Gregg’s interview on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell show. He laid out some plans to punish people who are overweight and engage in unhealthy behaviors in terms of health insurance costs. I guess he would support the removal of Trans-fatty acids in fast foods!

After all when hard pressed and overworked middle class Americans have to grab a fast meal while working shouldn’t they have “Freedom” from trans-fatty acids? What about freedom from nicotine addiction to cancer producing cigarettes?

Republican Leader John Boehner Spins On “Meet The Press”

Today I watched Republican House minority leader John Boehner do a full court press spin on “Meet The Press’. He blamed the Democrats for not being able to lead the nation by pointing out the problems that Obama had with blue dog Democrats. What the host failed to press Rep. John Boehner on was that the Democrats had more than enough votes IF the Republicans allowed governmental processes to take place by not resorting to the filibuster in the Senate. “Meet The Press” host, David Gregory did not press Republican Minority Leader John Boehner that his Republican counterparts in the Senate were engaging in the filibuster at record levels! Hence the Democrats had to have all 60 votes not just 50 votes plus Vice President Biden to act as the breaking vote to pass. While Rep. Boehner is a member of the House not the Senate, none the less the record Senate filibusters are the only reason the Democrats have come to a halt.

Separation Of Corporation And State

When is the American middle class going to wake up and demand the separation of corporation and state! We must address this issue before the health care issue. The problems passing real health care reform are mere symptoms of the underlying disease that is infecting the “decision making processes” of our society! That disease is the lack of Separation between Corporation and State!

Starter House But Insurance Cartel Owns The Mortgage

This bill is to weak and requires audacity to hope that rates will not skyrocket due to insurance company greed. I am afraid I cannot go along with Senator Harkins analogy that the Senate Bill is a “starter house not a mansion but we have to start somewhere!” I must number myself among the “Democrats Against Health Reform” because as Howard Dean has mentioned the Bill still allows Insurance Companies to practice “de facto” rejection of customers due to prior existing conditions. The rejection would be illegal but the modus operandi would be that insurance companies can still jack up their prices to cost prohibitive levels on those customers they do not want!

There is no real competition for the insurance companies without a robust public option.

Thus rates will continue their projected massive upward trends. Rates are set to skyrocket over the next few years but the average American is not aware of this.

  • If there is no bill then the so called “free market” will be blamed and their Republican fellow travelers would suffer even more loses at the polls.
  • If the bill passes then when rates continue to rise unchecked the Democrats will take the blame.

You cannot simply “add on” to this “starter house” because the Democrats just don’t have the testosterone to do it! Besides having a public option was a compromise to begin with since most progressives want a single payer system!

I strongly urge you to watch this testosterone filled video from “The Frank Factor”. This video was made prior to Obama taking office! But the author makes a correct assessment and a dire prediction that has come true due to the weak behavior of both Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. (See see video below).

Senator Ben Nelson Blue Dog Hypocrite

Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson is a damned hypocrite who helped kill real Health Care Reform. He whines against both abortion and government “socialism”. That is why he was against the public option! Yet he has jumped on board to give the 60th vote in the Senate in return for unique “Socialist Medicaid” concessions to his state of Nebraska while denying America the public option! – Hypocrite!
