The stockings were hung by the chimney with (Obama)care
Posted by Staff
From toilet accoutrements to canned food, the phones were ringing off the hook with callers hoping to share their story about the worst gift they’d ever received. But don’t discount the Obama Admin and its ability to one-up all of them. This year, as part of California’s campaign for ObamaCare, the Obama Administration is calling upon parents to give their children the gift of ObamaCare - the gift that just keeps on giving...higher premiums, higher deductibles, and an increasing doctor shortage. Will you be wrapping up the gift of crummy healthcare coverage for your child this holiday season?
The worst gift I ever received…
Forget coal in the stockings… last night the House doled out what will undoubtedly prove to be a horrible Christmas present for the American people. The unfortunate budget bill that was passed overwhelmingly in the House boosts spending, increases the deficit, creates more taxes, and allows Senate Democrats to avoid difficult votes on budget issues for two years. The bill is nothing more than a huge concession to Democrats, and Republicans who are shirking their duty to the American people out of their desire to head home for the holidays should really consider the consequences of shortsighted actions could portend for 2014.
Pay no attention to the immigration reform behind the curtain
Boehner’s attack on conservatives who oppose the budget deal was nothing if not an exercise in misdirection. As RedState editor-in-chief, Erick Erickson, pointed out on the show, Boehner’s comments had very little to do with the budget issue. Instead, Erickson argued that Boehner’s comments were related to his end-game: namely, to gird his defenses and prepare for the impending fight over immigration reform. From Boehner’s assertion that immigration is “absolutely not dead in the House,” to his hiring of immigration reform advocate Rebecca Tallent, it has become all too obvious that Boehner has amnesty on his mind. This week’s comments merely represent yet another poorly veiled effort to alienate and denigrate conservative groups, so he can more easily push immigration reform through the House in the new year.
