Remember What the Democrats Did with Obamacare that Led to the Government Shutdown?

Democrats and the White House want to put the blame for the shutdown of the Federal Government on the House Republicans, especially those who align themselves with the Tea Party. (I wonder if “blame” is the correct word – perhaps praise would be better?)

At the center of the debate is President Obama’s landmark legislation “The Affordable Health Care Act” (a.k.a. ObamaCare).

live_from_capitol_hill_final_healthcare_debate-460x307What I find incredibly arrogant and self-serving, coming from the Democrat spin doctors (and their willing accomplices in the media), are the facts surrounding the passage of this legislation and their short term memory of the shenanigans they had to employ in order to ram through the two thousand plus page law (which no one read, but Nancy Pelosi claims they did) in order to get it to the President’s desk for his signature.

Lest we forget, ObamaCare was not (and still is not) popular with the American people. Every poll declared this truth. But the Dem’s won the presidency in 2008 and already had control of the House and the Senate since 2006. Elections, we were told, had consequences.

The Senate required sixty votes to get the bill passed and they had it. This long established rule appeared to make the upcoming debate over health care a sure thing.

Even though the Republicans were in the minority, they were promised they would be invited to the negotiating table and the proceedings would be broadcast live on C-Span (see video below). Needless to say, this was a bold-faced lie.

Alas, as a result of the death of Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA), the nation’s hope of stopping the Federal Governments attempts to take over one sixth of the nation’s economy dangled on a Republican hopeful who was vying for the vacant Senate seat. Much to the surprise of many, Scott Brown won and the sixty votes needed to pass socialized medicine fell short in the Senate by one vote.

The Democrats were in a tizzy. They were so close, they could almost taste it. But now their dreams of an emerging socialist utopia were dashed. How could they overcome this defeat? Simple! They were in the majority, so they reasoned, and so they broke continuity with Senate rules deciding that a simple majority was all that was needed (Elections no longer had consequences)! ObamaCareLess, as I like to call it, became the unpopular law of the land.

If the Democrats had been honest and forthright back in 2010, then perhaps the events of today would not be unfolding. I, for one, hope the Republicans will break with their compromising past, and remember these events and the shameful way the people of this country and themselves were treated back then. My message to Speaker Boehner – don’t give them an inch! Elections no longer had consequences!”

Obama to Allow Amnesty Rally on National Mall After Kicking Veterans Out

Obama to Allow Amnesty Rally on National Mall After Kicking Veterans Out

Last week, Barack Obama did a disgraceful thing in barricading the World War II Memorial and then later forcing Vietnam Veterans from the Vietnam Memorial. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid then attempted to blame the Republicans for the barricades. Now, on the very same Mall that those Memorials reside on, the Obama administration has decided to hold a massive rally for comprehensive immigration reform on Tuesday.

According to Charlie Spiering at the Washington Examiner:

A planned immigration reform rally will take place on the National Mall on Tuesday even though the site is closed due to the government shutdown.

Organizers for the “Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform” were spotted Monday setting up a stage and equipment on the National Mall for the rally which will take place on Tuesday.

A few scattered barriers around the park have signs informing visitors that the area is closed as a result of the government shutdown.

Spiering writes that that Susana Flores, a spokesman for the rally confirmed that the group would be allowed to hold their event due to their rights, which are protected under the First Amendment. Well, Hell’s Bells! Why are the veterans who fought to uphold the document that is supposed to protect such rights not given theirs?

On top of this, Lawmakers in Congress like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) are expected to be at the event, which is expecting about 10,000 people.

Various immigration activist organizations, along with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the AFL-CIO will be on hand as well.

This event is already a setup for more political theater. As Breitbart’s Tony Lee writes:

immigration-rally-arrest-apBreitbart News has obtained emails in which an immigration campaign organizer for the Center for Community Change (CCC), a liberal grassroots organizing group working with a Hispanic advocacy group and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), sent an email this week asking for at least 200 people to to volunteer to get arrested at an immigration rally in Washington, D.C. in acts of civil disobedience.

The CCC email lists four ways supporters can help the the various pro-immigration reform advocacy groups on October 8:

House Republicans continue work on immigration reform, which we already know is going to be a disaster. Hopefully it will be better than the Senate version, but the pressure to cave on the issue is mounting, just like it is on Obamacare.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), chairwoman of the House Republican conference, told Univision on Sunday “there’s still time” for immigration reform and that it is a “priority” for Republicans.

“We must pass immigration reform,” McMorris Rodgers said

According to a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), immigration reform is next on the agenda following the government shutdown and debt ceiling debates.

The fact that a push for amnesty for people who are in this country illegally is being allowed on the National Mall, while veterans who fought and bled are turned away is beyond repulsive. This is nothing more than the Obama administration rubbing the people’s noses in his tyranny. I’m wondering just how long it will be until those in our military realize a domestic enemy of the Constitution resides in the White House and there are many of his comrades in Congress. When will the oath apply to defend the Constitution against such enemies?”
