Somebody Call The WAAAmbulance: Dems Freak Out Over House Obamacare Vote

0 Shares

President Barack Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats spent much of Friday freaking out about the House approval of a bill to temporarily fund the government and strip funding for the 2010 Federal health care law known as Obamacare.

Here’s a rundown of some of the Democrats’ greatest hits:

Ashamed

Representative Jim Moran (D-Va.): “I used to be really proud of this institution. I used to be able to go through my community and, many of those who have served as long as I have, know what it was like to be proud to be a member of Congress.”

GOP Trying To Mess With Me

President Barack Obama: “Unfortunately right now the debate is going on in Congress is not meeting the test of helping middle class families. They’re not focused on you. They’re focused on politics. They’re focused on trying to mess with me. They’re not focused on you.”

Deadbeat Nation, Banana Republic

President Barack Obama: “You don’t say ‘I’m not going to pay my bill, my note, for my truck because I’m saving money.’ Once you bought the truck, you can’t say you’re saving money simply by not paying the bill. … This is the United States of America. This is not some banana republic. This is not a deadbeat nation. We don’t run out on our tab.”

This Is A Hostage Situation

President Barack Obama: “[Republicans] will send our economy into a tailspin, just like Speaker Boehner said. They want to threaten default just to make sure that tens of millions of Americans continue not to have health care. … They’re holding the whole country hostage.”

A Mess

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.): “This place is a mess.”

“We’re not here to expand government, but we’re not here to eliminate government,” she said later. “If the idea is to limit government, let’s work together to do that. But what is brought to the floor today is without a doubt a measure designed to shut down government.”

Stay tuned for fireworks in the Senate next week.

    I couldn’t be any prouder of our House of Representatives today! Great Job!! Thank you for standing up for America!

    • liz

      But, how long will it last? Think they may cave again? I wonder which agency O’Bama will threaten them with this time.

  • scotty

    Sounds like all the Dems all WAAnna be a bunch of WAAAnabes.

  • A_Murricun

    Shut down the government? Hey, that’s a great idea! Wish I’d thought of it!

  • A_Murricun

    Shut down the government? Hey, that’s a great idea! Wish I’d thought of it!

    • liz

      I wish we could stop O’Bama, Pelosi, Reid, and anyone else who stands with them. I wish they would receive no pay checks, that would make my day!!

    • bmrtoyo

      lol

  • Bill

    It is understandable that the progressives would scream like a mashed cat if they did not get their way.
    Apparently, they have not gotten the message that the public thinks otherwise

  • Larry

    Yet we go another Trillion or so in debit and print a Trillion on top of that to prop everything up and these fools believe they are doing us a favor with their dedicated PUBLIC SERVICE?
    Please!
    The talk of paying bills and balancing check books gag me!

  • Helen

    We could save a whole bunch of money if we shut it down. No one does anything of importance anyway, just a bunch of free loading dopes work for the government! They are all paid a hefty salary, actually most are there so they
    will vote for Obama. Most gov jobs have no credibility!

  • Alan

    Boo hoo! How many times have they voted to defund it now? 40 something? It’s all smoke and mirrors by the Dems as they’ll simply refuse to go along with it once it reaches the Senate.

    • WHITE WOMEN EVERYWHERE

      I have no problem with the GOP trying to squash this horrible boondoggle. However, I think they should have a complete & explicit alternative plan for healthcare reform that they can present to the American people immediately! Then they can say, “WE CAN DO MUCH BETTER”!!! & BOOM..here it is ! The first thing top do to me would be to hold a vote in Congress to establish as law the ability to buy health insurance across state lines. Are the insurance lobbyists buying off the GOP to not do that? I know Romney & McCain both ran & said they would open it up across state lines. They made it sound like they could do it via. ex.order, but it can only be done by Congress….of course, Obummer could issue an illegal ex. order like he’s been doing to do that but then this Phony prez would be crossing Big Insurance & Big Pharma & he’s in bed with them!

      • Alan

        I totally agree m’ lady. Opening up purchasing across state lines would have a huge impact on the industry. Competition forces prices down. As for Obummer’s cozy arrangement with Big Insurance & Big Pharma, well we can only hope that it will eventually become an estranged one……lol! Have a great evening!

        • WHTIE WOMEN EVERYWHERE

          3 things here; (1) I’m not 100% sure, but I don’t think that a bill to open across state lines has even got out of committee & to a vote meaning that the insurance lobbyists are probably paying off both sides to squash it!
          (2) When a DEM prez is in cahoots with Big Business you never hear about it, do you?
          (3) I’m not a lady, I’m a just a conservative/libertarian Indian guy that likes white women a lot………..LOL!!!

          • Beverly Golato

            What I said was these are what has been put forth for debate but we can’t get the other side to debate it. It is a whole plan put together by some in the house. I was listening the Cruz and I think McCarthy (not sure about McCarthy) and this is what they want to do. I listen to all of them and get confused when I try to remember names.

          • Alan

            Again I agree with you in every respect my friend, especially with the conservative/libertarian, Indian guy that likes white women a lot…..LMAO!

          • WHITE WOMEN EVERYWHERE

            HAHAHAHA!!! it’s funny, all the white guys I know like Indian women….but to me, a real blond with blue eyes can’t be beat!

          • CSN

            The Blue eyes may be real, but not necessarily the blond hair…most get honey blonde as they age….a lot have to dye it, but that’s OK…everyone to his own likes.

          • Praying for the Sheeple

            So, how old are you Conservative/Libertarian Indian guy?….lol….just kiddin’. Conservative/libertarian….I like the way that sounds when you say it out loud.

          • Alan

            Blond with blue eyes has always been a preference of mine as well, though I’ve never turned down the opportunity to know the other varieties also….lol!

      • Beverly Golato

        They have offered numerous plans. They have one now that is ready for debate to replace Obamcare. It keeps the preexisting condition, lets you buy insurance from other states and lets you take your insurance with you if you change jobs. All they need is for the senate to stop being jackasses and sit down and listen to some sound debates on how to fix healthcare. Obama is a narcissistic egomaniac and won’t let any other plan be heard. This monstrosity has got to go. The underlying plan is not to help people who are uninsured but to cripple this nation into bankruptcy.

        • WHITE WOMEN EVERYWHERE

          Well, I’m glad you told me that, but the GOP needs to say that at every moment during the next few days/weeks or whatever as this drags out!

          • Beverly Golato

            Spread the word. People don’t pay enough attention to what’s going on. The GOP is so divided right now from the new blood and the old blood. We need this new blood to awaken those oldies up. DC has changed and the GOP better change along with it.

          • Jana

            CALL YOUR SENATORS.

          • bmrtoyo

            no the oldies need to go ,vote them OUT,you cant wake up the braindead,,ie ole john from arizona

        • Moustache The First

          So, in other words, Reid the mild mannered racist psychopath running the Senate will not let it be debated!

        • Jana

          If the Government gets shut down it is the DEMOCRATS FAULT!!!

        • ChiefBoring

          AND then go to a single payer system; the Govt. Which would bankrupt the insurance industry and us!

        • CintiCB

          It’s designed to fail. When it does, O boy will swoop in and save the day with socialist medicine.

      • http://www.facebook.com/MarksMountainViews Mark Wolchko

        and Rep Dr Paul Broun has one, has been pushing it for years now. let the several Dr.s in the house take the lead in this. How novel, Dr’s instead of bureaucrats running healthcare reforms. Duh!

        • Horace DeBussy Jones

          When the DEMs were crafting this frightening boondoggle, Ron Paul had a great ten point plan & his key part was to disconnect Health insurance from employment. He said it would create millions of jobs & boost the economy like wildfire

      • Bill P.

        I fully agree with the cross state lines point. I also think a certain level of tort reform wouldn’t be so bad either.

        • WHITE WOMEN EVERYWHERE

          Goods point, but of course the DEMs are in bed with the tort lawyers…Texas has done very well in that area

      • CSN

        It doesn’t need to be 1000 pages long and no death panels. Government should not run Health Care, as they can’t even run the country…look at Egypt, and the Middle East…everything they put their hand into gets messed up…need I say more?

  • JOE LARD ASS

    Hey, OBlahBlah should be a comedian….he has me in stitches with these comments. He is the one who is making this into a Banana Republic with his litany of illegal ex. orders & changing provisions in ObummerCare unilaterally & illegally according to the Constitution! & Pe-LOUSY could be his sidekick…hey, lately she is giving Uncle Joe Fright-En a run for his money with her inane remarks!

    What is he so worried about , all the bills will be paid with the phony fiat money, after Ben Baby cranks up the printing press! The day is approaching when the Chinese Ren takes over for the dollar & then no one will be laughing. Already other nations are buying Russian Oil with Rens & Euros.

  • JB

    Heartfelt thanks to the House Republicans ….Good job!
    Thanks for protecting the American people from Obamacare!
    Thank you for doing the right thing for America! Keep up the good work!
    We the people love it!

    JB

  • mark

    The three stooges, Obama, Reid, Palousi… Nixon was impeached for less.

    • Larry

      I SAY IT AGAIN; Obama should be bagging groceries at Safeway, Reid should be in a Nursing Home in Nevada and Pelosi should be picking Pineapples on her husbands plantation in Hawaii.

      • deToqueville

        Reid should be somewhere out in the desert of Nevada.

      • angstfountain

        Actually, he should go back to Baskin-Robbins.

    • ChiefBoring

      Actually, Nixon resigned before he could be impeached, but I take your point.

      • deToqueville

        Because he had more character and reverence for the Office and the Nation; something lacking, along with virtue, honesty, integrity and intelligence, in today’s politicians/political hacks.

  • LeRoy Johnston

    What a Concept, The House of Representatives, Representing We The People. Naturally The White house and their supporting Party, are in shock, Good Maybe some of them will Wake Up, To the facts that most Americans Oppose Socialized Medicine, And Yes, That’s all it is. Myself, I have always Hated Communist, even before they were calling themselves Progressives and Liberals.

  • TEA PARTY & CRUMPETS

    God Bless any DEM that voted to defund & cross their FearFul & Confused Dear Leader!!

  • Robert Wood

    TO THE DEM,s HAVE A BANANA,SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP!!!!!

  • Sam

    I like the title of the story! So fitting.

  • rbrooks

    lol. no one is surprised or shocked. no one is going to be surprised or shocked when this bill is never passed and signed.

    it is all a show.

    • ChiefBoring

      If the Govt. is shut down, it will be the Dems in the Senate who do it. The House bill funds everything but Obamacare.

      • rbrooks

        typical of the fringe radicals. blame others for what you have done.

  • rbrooks

    shut the govt down. let the gop and the lunatics have their way. it will not take long and they will be screaming to start the govt back up.

    • Beverly Golato

      The GOP has been cleaning up the Dems garbage since the beginning of time. We don’t need to shut the government down we just need some senators with a little common sense but all they want is to stay in power. They don’t care about this country only votes.

    • deToqueville

      Afraid you won’t get your welfare/disability check?

      • rbrooks

        you actually read the post and that was your reply. your lack of reading comprehension is pathetic.

    • CSN

      Not I! We’ll do just fine without them. No more people to close Farms, Farmland, Organic Producers of Raw Milk, etc, water systems to irrigate Farms, and no more FDA, EPA, and IRS (yahoo!). GMO is on the rise due to Crony Capitalism, and you’re worried about Government Shut Down. I say Hallelujah and Deo Gratias for that one!

      • rbrooks

        no more cops, firemen, road maintenance, water and waste water treatment, no food safety, etc. it will be great.

        • CSN

          You are really speaking ignorantly. Your local Government is not shutting down, just the Federal Government. You pay property Taxes and State Taxes for those services, and those are local services, and has nothing to do with the Federal Government shutting down. You can do quite well without the Federal Government poking their noses into every aspect of your life, including your local Police. You need to read up on this. Sheesh.

          • rbrooks

            lol. you have never heard of matching fund programs? with out those funds, your state and county will have to raise your taxes. lol. or do with out.

            it should be fun watching the country fold with put any of those depts and programs you are so eager to get rid of.

          • CSN

            You getting food stamps or something? The federal government can drop into the center of the ocean for all I care. They’re destroying America and we’d do better without them at this point. They’re bankrupting America, and everyone is blind to it. Obamacare is going to put this country into Trillions of Dollars deeper in debt, and you’re worried about closing down the Government for a few days? It’s all smoke and mirrors…they’re acting like babies, especially Obama. Don’t preach to me about matching fund program, as we pay through the nose for the services we receive locally. They don’t need to raise our Taxes if they take out what isn’t necessary. We’re paying a $35.00 per year “Arts Tax”, which is totally insane, and we’re paying $50.00 more for drivers license renewal, for a Bridge which goes across the river in our district, and they’re taxing the heck out of us everywhere we turn (if you buy alcohol, tobacco, telephone service, gas, natural gas, electricity, and on and on, and all you can do is say, they’ll raise your taxes if the Federal Government is shut down. If They do that, then they’re not getting one more dime from me.

          • rbrooks

            let me know how that no govt works out for ya.

            btw- if they raise taxes are you going to move to another country? if not, you will be paying more than just an extra dime.

            35 a year is a big deal to you? sounds like you are the one getting food stamps.

          • CSN

            $35.00 for a idiotic Arts Tax is too much for anyone with a brain in their head….I’ll not pay for some stupid Arts Tax now or ever! Food stamps have nothing to do with this, you’re a shill for Obama, so just get over it. No Government = Live Free! Ask the Farmers if they need Government intruding on their private affairs and shutting them all down, so Government can control our entire food sources, and starve us to submission.

          • rbrooks

            obviously you have not asked any farmers. they love all of that farm subsidization. with out those subsidies, many of those farms would no longer be working.

            shut it all down and see how it works out for you.

          • CSN

            You’re drunk on stupidity…you don’t even talk to any Farmers whose Farms have been raided by the EPA Police. You need to get informed, or get out.

          • rbrooks

            perhaps you could post the farmers who want to end the farm subsidies program. be sure and include the farmers who receive the most from that program.

        • Robert Messmer

          Other than food safety that’s all local, not federal. As for food safety they only do the job half assed any way which is why we keep having recalls for ground beef and different produce. After the public gets sick that is. So doesn’t look like we are getting the food safety that we have been paying for.

          • rbrooks

            food safety is not working? wait till you get rid of it.

            you and your fellow anti-govt advocates should learn how your federal dollars are being spent.

          • Robert Messmer

            We already know–they are being spent arming terrorists.

          • rbrooks

            we have a very long history of creating and arming terrorists. this is not new.

            when can we shut the govt down?

          • rbrooks

            we have a very long history of creating and arming terrorists. this is not new.

            when can we shut the govt down?

          • Robert Messmer

            Its happened before and guess what??? It wasn’t the end of the world. The decision to shut down or not shut down rests with Obama. It is his choice to do what he wishes.

          • rbrooks

            stop blaming obama for what the gop is doing. they all knew the out come when they passed the bill.

            the shut downs in the past did damage. this one is a bit different.

            i support shutting all of govt down. we should let you guys have your way. see how it works out for ya.

            you seem to be in the minority. the majority of americans are against the wonderful bill the gop house passed.

          • CSN

            Mr. Brooks is obviously under-educated about how Government works. It does no good to talk with him. He’s a fly in the water and needs to be spotted out of this discussion. Trolls need not be answered, due to their incapacity to construct a complete thought or sentence. He’s obviously on meds and if he gets no Government funds (assistance) for them, he’ll simply go berserk!

  • ABBE

    oooh did lil princessy waawaa bama get hims widdle fingers burnt. Listen to the screams as he has another melt down kicking doors and whining home to Moochie. Is he getting the idea that enough people just don’t love him to widdle pieces. Has he figured out yet he’s the laughing stock of the world!? Putin has got his number, yells “boo” and he hides behind useless Kerry’s skirts.. He’d make a good emperor of Kenya,his homeland,

  • Beverly Golato

    Did you hear Pelosi today quoting the bible. The biggest whore in DC has the nerve to quote the bible. So hypocritical.

    • NO PRO HOMO AGENDA

      The Catholic who is a staunch supporter of Planned Parenthood & the death of the Holy Innocents of God

      • CSN

        She’s a catholic in name only…she automatically excommunicated, according to Pre-Vatican II Canon Law, and cannot receive Holy Communion until she undoes everything she’s done against the innocent unborn, etc. She’s another cafeteria catholic who picks and chooses what she wants to uphold and throws away the rest, in this case being 99% of Doctrine. She thinks she’s immune to hell and damnation, but she’ll find out soon enough.

        • bmrtoyo

          even her faith wants nothing to do with her

        • Robert Messmer

          Well they do have a new pope and he has said the “church” needs to change about abortion.

          • CSN

            I’d like to see that one…where and when did he say that. I’m a sedevacantist.

          • Robert Messmer

            Not being Catholic don’t really care about the church and what it says about most any thing. http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/on-faith/pope-franciss-viral-quotes-on-wealth-abortion-atheists-war-and-gay-catholics/2013/09/23/60c2a2a6-2471-11e3-b75d-5b7f66349852_gallery.html#photo=8

            The change is about being more accepting of the people involved, but not the act. I believe one of the Presidents had said something about following the law, but in his heart he hoped for a time when there would be no abortions.

          • CSN

            The law of the church is this, “anyone who has an abortion, encourages another to have an abortion, or who does nothing about someone they know who is going to have an abortion by remaining silent, incurs excommunication, which bars them from receiving Sacraments, or even attending Mass. That has been the law of the church for centuries. It is a point in fact which needs to be made to deter people from that heinous act of murdering their own babies. I say babies, because the average woman who has had an abortion, has had at least three abortions, and some have had more. “If sentence is not speedily pronounced against evil, then men to evil without any fear.” The church has the Sacrament of Penance, or Confession, for a woman to enter, to be relieved of her sins, but in this case, they need the permission of the Bishop Ordinary, to absolve them, to strengthen the weight of that crime and the heinousness of it’s bearing on that innocent unborn child.

          • Robert Messmer

            So has the catholic church excommunicated Nancy or any other catholic politicians?

          • CSN

            Not the Progressive Catholic Church, which has taken over. They’re tolerating everything, which is why everyone is so scandalized. I’m with a small minority of Catholics who go by the Old Canon Law, which Excommunicates for those reasons. The Progressive Church only taps them on the shoulder and says, No..No..No! Two Cardinals recently had something to say about Nancy Pelosi….the more Liberal One (Cardinal Wuerl) said, “we won’t refuse her Holy Communion”, and the more Conservative (Cardinal Burke) said, “She should be refused Holy Communion.”, whereas, before, they would Excommunicate her with pomp and circumstance. It’s now all smoke and mirrors, and if they do anything it will be a first, because since the advent of the Second Vatican Council, everything is backwards. Have they ousted the Priests who have abused the young boys yet? Not that I’ve heard!

    • Moshe McCarthy

      Ah, Pelosi, a member of that august body known as the US Senate. In this administration you have the prez, vice prez, the sec. of state & the sec. of defense being all ex-senators. You have to go back to the 1850’s & the moribund & inept administration of Franklin Pierce to find a similar array.A bunch of lib windbags & one RINO whose senatorial past shields them from the real world consequences of their votes. This is the body we have to depend on to defund O-care.

      When Edward Everett Hale served as chaplain to the Senate, he once was asked if he prayed for the senators. He responded, “No. I look at the senators and then pray for the nation.”

      • ChiefBoring

        Pelosi is a member of the House!

        • bmrtoyo

          a sleeper in the house

      • Beverly Golato

        Pelosi is not a senator.

        • deToqueville

          Correct. She is a member of the communist / progressive, rape and plunder the US party.

        • angstfountain

          Since the original protection was removed where the People elected the House and the States appointed the Senators, the difference is meaningless now. Two sides of the same sheet of paper.

    • Mr T

      No, what did she (mis)quote this time?

      “Pelosi today quoting the bible”

  • Richard

    Wonderful, now if anything good comes from this, the least shall be,we the people now have a record how our Reps. And Senators voted on this matter. Now is the time to make your voices heard, contact those who would not vote to defund Obamacare and let them know this is thier last term at next election. Praise those who voted to destroy this monster, and seek out others to replace those you will be voting out next election. Remember!

  • Mr T

    Hey Barry, we didn’t “buy the truck.” You SOB’s in govt buy everything under the sun for everybody in the world and stick us with the bill. Well, stick this!

    Someone send the Prez a pack of cigarettes to calm him down…..and a bottle of whiskey.

  • IBCAMN

    well,maybe it will get to the point where everyone is exempt from obamacare and they will just put it in the closet with the rest of his failures!..like the big handed chicago hair hatted hooligan hood rat!!

    • Jana

      OBAMA exempted Congress and their aids from Obamacare. They couldn’t afford it.

  • ch2801

    Already my granddaughter got her 40 hour week cut to 28 and my son is paying $200 more each month for his family’s insurance.

    • CSN

      Glad you posted this, as the Democrats are being told the opposite. People please listen to this!

  • wandamurline

    If the conservatives can take the Senate in 2014 and keep the House, we can repeal the whole damn thing, especially if we have enough votes to override Obama’s veto. And, we can file impeachment and treason charges against the liar in chief Muslim for giving aid to our enemies that is spelled out in the constitution as treason. So, get to work and get votes for Conservative Constitutional representation….join a tea party and let’s make a difference in 2014….if we don’t get these changes in government, America will not make it to the end of this traitor’s term.
