    Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid

    Last week we saw the not very surprising news that insurance companies will have to raise rates to pay for Obamacare mandates when it was reported that Connecticut insurers had received approval to raise rates over 20% just to cover the cost of eliminating life-time coverage limits.  This news was accompanied by warnings that...

    Not surprisingly, the Democrats vision for America isn’t in line with the majority of voters.  While all indications are that President Obama and Democratic Congressional leaders continue to move forward with their plans for an across the board tax increase, most American feel they are already overtaxed. Rasmussen also found that both a national...

    Once again, it’s hard to find a word to describe a Democratic explanation of wrong doing beyond simply saying, “wow!!!”. Greta Van Susteran had a great interview with Harry Reid.  During the interview, Greta talks about the Scott Brown victory.  Sticking to the Democratic talking points, Reid threw Coakley under the bus, making a...

    Harry Reid

    In a minor, and mostly symbolic victory, Republicans found a problem with the language of the House reconciliation bill that Senate Democrats have been trying to pass over the past 36 hours. The Republicans found a provision that guaranteed Pell grants into the future without providing funding for them, leaving that to a future...

    Obama

    President Obama and the far left have been reinvigorated with the passing of Obamacare.  While only a few weeks ago it seemed that Obama’s far left agenda had been stalemated and unlikely to have any real chance of being pushed through Congress, many believe that has now changed. As Nancy Pelosi so famously said,...

    Dick Morris: Passing Obamacare was a suicide pact among Dems

    Democratic Leaders

    It has been clear from almost the beginning of the Obama Presidency that President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid saw the election of President Obama as a far-left mandate.  They took that mandate and ran with it, completely blocking out Republican involvement from the early weeks of the Obama Presidency. President Obama set...

    by  • March 19, 2010 • All Whoppers, Congress, Featured Articles, General, Health Care, Newly Added Stories, Pelosi Whoppers • 1 Comment

    Yesterday I wrote about Obama’s CBO lie.  That was posted shortly before the CBO score was released on the House’s reconciliation bill. In that article, I outlined two major manipulations that President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have been utilizing to force the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to score the bill as costing...

    Obama’s CBO lie – Obama, Pelosi and Reid guilty of blatant manipulation of the CBO score to get ‘their’ number

    by  • March 18, 2010 • All Whoppers, Congress, Featured Articles, General, Health Care, Newly Added Stories, Pelosi Whoppers • 1 Comment

    The gang of three (Obama, Pelosi and Reid) are guilty of what is tantamount to lying to the American public.  They have crafted and re-crafted their health care bills, until they get CBO (Congressional Budget Office) scores that they can ‘sell’ as reducing the deficit over the next 10 years. Two of the most...

    Dems off base on attacks of Republicans who took stimulus money

    by  • February 17, 2010 • All Whoppers, Congress, Featured Articles, General, Newly Added Stories • 0 Comments

    While it isn’t a new form of attack, it’s clearly made it to the top of the Democratic talking-points list that members of Congress and Democratic strategists use during their interviews, as the tactic is being used more and more of late.  The strategy is to  call Republicans whose districts received stimulus money hypocrites...

    Here is an example of the end result of what President Obama and his buddy Andy Stern of SEIU are trying to push on America: A school superintendent in Rhode Island is trying to fix an abysmally bad school system. Her plan calls for teachers at a local high school to work 25 minutes...

    America heard the pledge over and over.  They heard it via Barack Obama’s twitter and email blasts.  They heard it in the Town Hall meetings during the campaign.  They heard it during the Presidential debates.  They heard him telling Joe the plumber.

    A jobs bill that doesn’t create jobs?

    by  • February 11, 2010 • All Whoppers, Congress, Featured Articles, General, Newly Added Stories, Reid Whoppers • 0 Comments

    When the Associated Press points out that Reid and Obama’s new stimulus bill jobs bill is unlikely to create many jobs, you know it must be bad. The Senate proposal, which is more narrow than the one analyzed by CBO, is estimated to cost about $10 billion. That would add 80,000 to 180,000 jobs...

    GOP to Dems: If you go the reconciliation route, be prepared for a flood of amendments to slow things to a crawl

    by  • January 27, 2010 • All Whoppers, Congress, Featured Articles, General, Newly Added Stories • 0 Comments

    In a nutshell, what the gang of three (Pelosi, Reid and Obama) have been working on behind closed doors is an attempt to pass their wildly unpopular health care bill using a Senate procedure that was designed to prevent budget resolutions from being filibustered. In an extreme misuse of the reconciliation process, the Democrats...

    Come on Blanche, you were for it before you were against it

    What a surprise.  Now that Harry Reid can’t get 60 votes for health care and plans to use reconciliation, Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) says she will ‘fight’ any attempts to pass health care using reconciliation.  She claims that this is in part because Arkansans won’t accept it.  However, she ignored the wishes of Arkansans when...

    The gang of three aren’t ready to give up yet. It seems their back room, Chicago-style dealing is still going on in full force. On Thursday, there were rumors that Pelosi was presenting to the Democratic caucus a plan similar to what Dick Morris describes below.  The reports on Thursday said it was derailed...
