Gruber Flap Reopens Not-So-Old Wounds

The web site is the least of Obamacare's problems. The worst parts are the parts that get little attention, like the Independent Payment Advisory Board which effectively has the power to dictate what can and cannot be treated. Or the insurance company bailouts and the redistribution of money among insurance companies from the more profitable to less profitable. That is going to be a disaster. The parts of Obamacare that received the most attention like the device tax, website, or work week are the more minor problems of the law. Because they are the more minor problems are probably why they are the ones being discussed, with the complicit media and the gutless opposition party.

I never understood the perception that Obama is a nice person and speaks well. If one is not a Leftist, one would feel under attack every time he opens his mouth. Listen to some Ronald Reagan speeches and then try to tell me that Obama is a good speaker.
While I do believe Obama and the Dems have done a terrible job, the Republicans have allowed Obama and the Dems to do a terrible job, which mean the Repubs have done a terrible job too. I am 52 years old and I see the pendulum swing between Repubs and Dems constantly. Right now it favors Repubs. Just wait, fickle America will swing back to Dems. FDR gave a speech where he mentioned that Leftists and radical Leftists are out of power more often than not. He advocated putting structures in place to solidify their rule even when not in power. That is what the bureaucracy and the Dem stacked courts are.
I agree. Asians used to vote Republican and only voted Dem not long ago. I think the reason the GOP have lost minority votes (I am a member of a minority group myself) is that the Dems have done a good job with demagoguery and convincing minorities and women that the GOP hates them. The GOP has done a terrible job of defending itself as I don't believe for a second that the GOP hates minorities or women. Personally, I think the Dems are the ones that actually look down on minorities and women. They seem to think that we aren't smart enough to compete with White people without being given some sort of handicap. I find that very offensive. I have competed with White people and have done quite well without any special favors, thank you. (My particular field is quite a meritocracy.) I am not saying I am superior, just that I don't need any special help. Women should feel insulted by Dems how the Dems seem to think they can be manipulated by their lady parts and this "war on women" nonsense.
I think the Republicans should study how Reagan got landslides in 1980 and 1984. Reagan was just a few thousand votes shy of winning Minnesota in 1984 and winning all 50 states. And this is a man the pundits said couldn't get elected.
Hey House Dems. Take responsibility for your own actions. Don't blame Pelosi or Obama. You probably would have results more favorable to you had you listened to your constituents rather than Obama or Pelosi. Your blaming of Obama or Pelosi for your losses just increases my contempt for you.
I am not surprised at all but their should be consequences for this. The officials should have their *sses put in jail for contempt, or whatever. At the very least, they should be fired and lose all pension benefits. Otherwise, bullsh** behavior like this will just continue.
I had a bad feeling about electronic voting machines from the beginning. I am a software engineer and fraud would be made too easy on an electronic voting machine. I am more worried about problems that aren't seen, like the vote counts being faked without showing any abnormalities at the voter user interface.
If the GOP wins a majority in the Senate, please do not declare victory and take a nap. Tossing Harry Reid out of the senate majority leader spot is only the start. The GOP senate and House must also fulfill its role as a check and balance against the executive order happy Obama. We must hold these new senators (and the old ones too) to account. Keep the pressure up, not just in election years. The new Congress must also take positive steps towards reforming the current state of lawlessness in DC, not just block Obama's fundamental transformation of America (block that agenda is an important function, but it needs to do more to turn back the heavy hand of centralized government).
