Today, Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the DC court with left wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government. He has stated that he feels these nominees are being held up by the GOP via filibuster. So, getting rid of this provision allows Obama to act with impunity in regards to nominees thus ensuring that he can place liberals in any position he wishes.
“I was glad to see Dems in the Senate use the nuclear option. Republicans had used obstruction tactics to the point it had evolved into torment of American people.”

The group of Congressmen who are grilling Secretary Sebelius are pushing an agenda that is a little hard to follow. The issue is that some citizens are going to lose their existing health insurance as a result of the Affordable Care Act. In a left-handed way this is correct. The ACA offers policies which have more coverage at lower cost and, accordingly, many insurance companies are canceling policies which have become overpriced and are non-competitive ever since ACA was rolled out. The decisions to cancel certain overpriced policies were made by the insurance companies because it made economic sense. There is little future in offering policies which are not competitive because they have less coverage at higher cost.

PHOENIX — A new poll suggests that Arizona voters insist they're mad as hell and are ready to throw the current crop of bums out of Congress. But it remains to be seen whether the anger at government dysfunction carries through to next year's general election — and whether voters find the alternatives they are offered are any better.
Oh, the “weeping and gnashing of teeth” going on in conservative circles and right-wing think tanks after their embarrassing loss of face during the recent installment of “right-wing conservatives Shutter the U.S. Government” Once Again!

The government reopened its doors Thursday after a battle-weary Congress approved a bipartisan measure to end a 16-day partial shutdown and avert the possibility of an economy-jarring default on U.S. obligations.

“Interesting how the President, who said he WILL NOT negotiate, is belittling the GOP for not negotiating!”
TUCSON — Saying their success would “devastate” the state budget, Gov. Jan Brewer on Wednesday said she does not want U.S. House Republicans to succeed in their bid to shutdown the Affordable Care Act.
“The 87 year old driver that killed one person and injured 10 others in Gilbert was impaired. Impaired by her age.”
