Stating the obvious on Health Care Reform

Interesting article today from Kimberly Strassel at the Wall Street Journal.

All the accusations made by President pointing the finger at Republicans for his failures associated with health care reform must be a complete joke. Even worse, the Democrats in Congress are tripping along behind the President making the accusations the President is.

As Strassel points out, the Democrats control everything. In fact, they not only control Congress, they have massive majorities

How in the world can the Republicans be accused of derailing the President's reform when all it takes is a vote in the Congress to pass anything the President wants.

If he wants health care reform, he and the democrats can just pass it. It is that simple.

Here’s the dirty secret behind Washington’s health-care “fight”: Democrats won everything in last year’s election.

You wouldn’t know it from the way President Barack Obama is blaming the GOP for his flagging health agenda. “There are those [read the GOP] who are advocating delay just as a desperation move to try to kill it,” complained White House budget director Peter Orszag. Republicans are working to “block health-care reform,” groused the president. “Republicans should immediately put an end to their political games,” demanded Democratic Rep. Chris van Hollen.

Indeed. The party of the left owns the White House, a filibuster-proof Senate, and a 70-seat House majority. As one House Republican aide quipped: “We could have every GOP congressman and their parents vote against a Democratic bill, and still not stop it.” All Democrats have to do is agree on something.

That they can’t is testimony to Team Obama’s mismanagement of its first big legislative project. The president is a skilled politician and orator, but the real test of a new administration is whether it can shepherd a high-stakes bill through Congress. In retrospect, the mistakes are growing clear.


You want it liberals, go get it.

You wanted this government, Democrats. Your special interests, unions and Move bought and paid for this government. Now it is yours. Not George Bush's or the Republicans. You own the entire flaming turd bag known as our state and federal government. Now grow up and act like big boys and girls and take responsibility.

Democrats, when that flaming turd bag explodes and splatters all over the American people, it is your fault. You own it all!

Have a nice day.
