The US House of Representatives, at least the representative on the Republican side,  say they will begin repeal of President Obama’s (as it is known) ObamaCare legislation.  Some say the odds for success for a complete repeal are zero to none, but others say repeal is a sure thing.

I believe something between outright repeal in both houses and a compromise of some sort is most likely to occur.  I also believe, had there not been such a rush to pass the bill over the objections of what has been said to be a majority of those polled, we might have been able to craft a plan suitable to most American citizens.  Perhaps such an effort to listen will work now, but the process will have to get past the vitriol and distrust from many previously shown in both houses.

Reuters (USEdition) has posted a story by their reporters, Donna Smith and Thomas Ferraro, reporting on the statements and plans for the republican effort and there’s seems no lack of confidence for success on the part of the republican leadership.  The article correctly states work had been scheduled to begin for repeal of the bill for this week, but the tragedy in Tucson caused a delay in the beginning of the process:

“As the White House noted, it is important for Congress to get back to work, and to that end we will resume thoughtful consideration of the health care bill next week,” said Brad Dayspring, a spokesman for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

“Americans have legitimate concerns about the cost of the new healthcare law and its effect on the ability to grow jobs in our country,” he added.

The vote is set for Wednesday, said another Republican aide who asked not to be identified.

Both sides believe, or say they believe, their position is the correct and true side of the issue and offer further arguments in trying to convince the public their path is valid and will ultimately succeed:

The House is also expected to vote on a second measure that would instruct three House committees to develop replacement healthcare legislation that would, among other things, “foster economic growth and private sector job creation by eliminating job-killing policies and regulations.”

Democrats argue the healthcare overhaul that was signed into law last year will expand coverage to millions of uninsured Americans and help rein in soaring medical costs. But Republicans argue the coverage mandate in the legislation is unconstitutional and that penalties for employers who do not provide coverage discourage hiring.

Whatever may happen in the immediate future, it should be remembered that legal challenges to the bill are still pending which may or may not do away with the need for repeal of the bill.  This and other remaining issues, are found by reading the entire Reuters article found by clicking here and accessing links found below.

Pigford: Perhaps A Comprehensive List Of Investigative Articles

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

I have, from time to time, posted articles regarding the Pigford settlements and some of the implications of the settlement processes seemingly gone mad or made that way to begin with.  The material we have quoted or referenced is extraordinary for two primary reasons:

  1. there are scarcely any reports from the “main-scream” media which impact to any degree on the fraud and real magnitude in dollars meted out with the settlements
  2. the reports, and there are a few, have been made available in the main by blogs

Perhaps your thoughts might run counter to mine and you feel this whole episode is nothing about which to be concerned.  Or, maybe you are incensed that the big media boys have rested on their holly since they are absent any “laurels.”  Whatever the case, maybe someone, somewhere and sometime, with a little authority will do the right thing and an in-depth investigation to be completed.

Meanwhile, if you have nothing else to cause you to be a little dizzy, perhaps a complete reading or partial review of the articles to be found here will spur you on after a fine first day of the New Year (Saturday) and on through the weekend.  And no, the moon is not intoxicated … just a little dizzy to join us!

Here is a link to many articles on the subject:

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

Hawaii’s Governor Abercrombie (D)  wants something  revealed and he believes he can be the revealer.  In an Associated Press (AP) dispatch, through YahooNews, Abercromie muses about President Obama’s lack of revelation which could quell the controversy surrounding his place of birth (POB.)  I have written a couple of articles regarding the “birthers” and what I consider their silly incessant banging and clanging around Obama’s family closet.  Obviously, no one has paid attention to my articles, except for a couple of folks commenting when the articles were new.  The main points I attempted to raise in my posts, was all the federal employees having anything to do with the President’s security clearance, and any other background information, would have been involved in a large conspiracy to cover for the President’s having been born in Kenya, Pakistan, Indonesia or on the moon.  Another point, I attempted to make  in the past, was we are wasting our time with his  POB, when there are so many other Obama proclivities toward progressive ideas through which he could be attacked or brought to accountability.   Those who read my posts know (I hope) I am no supporter of President Obama for the most part, but I do believe in respecting the office, which after all, comes to us from the United States Constitution.    So, let us get to Mr. Abercromie’s desires regarding President Obama’s POB:

Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie wants to find a way to release more information about President Barack Obama’s Hawaii birth and dispel conspiracy theories that he was born elsewhere.

Abercrombie was a friend of Obama’s parents and knew him as a child, and is deeply troubled by the effort to cast doubt on the president’s citizenship.

The newly elected governor will ask the state attorney general’s office about what can be done to put an end to questions about Obama’s birth documentation from Aug. 4, 1961, spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said Tuesday.

Abercrombie says he was a friend of young Obama’s parents and he attended events where they and young Obama were present and his desire for now is to query Hawaii’s attorney general to find if there is a way to get proof of the President’s POB.  While I believe the governor is sincere, my first question to Mr. Abercrombie would be: why not ask the person most affected by the POB controversy … that would be POTUS.  Here’s some more from the AP article:

“He had a friendship with Mr. Obama’s parents, and so there is a personal issue at hand,” Dela Cruz said. “Is it going to be done immediately? No, the first thing on our list is the economy.”

It’s unclear what Abercrombie could do because Hawaii’s privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who doesn’t have a tangible interest.

It appears anyone looking to perch on one of the limbs of Mr. Obama’s family tree, while examining the leaf that would resolve the issue, will fall out of the tree, unless Mr. Obama decides to allow the scrutiny.

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

We’ll be posting a link to the story of  Senator Bernie Sanders, (I-VT) and his long-lasting solo act, but the partial question above has to do with the many posters on the comment sections under the linked article, that have given the Senator hero status against or over the Co-President Bill Clinton and our current President Barrack Obama AND all the Republicans.  I’m sure you know how to access the comments and I’ll only caution you to remember some of the inconsiderate posters have juvenile potty mouths … so you are forewarned.

As to the link to the story, I’m sorry it has no video.  But I wouldn’t subject you to eight or nine hours of great speeches from our nation’s founding fathers, much less what some would call harrumphing and haranguing  from a seasoned citizen.  A hero to Vermonters and others he may be, and you have to respect him his energy and dedication, whether well placed or off-track, but he should consider his vocal cords and cut the time he spends on his effort to take away tax breaks for those who may need and want them.

The article makes reference to the Senator as “Filibernie,” but I just know someone else will come up with “FullofBernie,” so I’d like to lay claim to the nickname or appellation before someone else grabs it .  That is not to say that he is full of himself, but it signifies that the Senate chambers was full of his speechifying for at least a third of a day.  The article comes from, The Hill’s, BLOG BRIEFING ROOM and it is by Jordan Fabian.  You’ll find it below:

Bubba Clinton Set To Become The First Co-President

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

Yes, the first Co-President as some are saying on the comment boards.  In a story posted by Yahoo Finance (originally from AP Associated Press) it is reported that Mr. Clinton may have saved (at least he tried) President Obama’s bacon  This is after he met with, and then decided after the meeting, to appear before the press corpse corps in defense of the President’s and Republicans’ new tax deal.  The President, apparently showing extreme confidence in President Clinton, walked away to attend a party and left it with him:

Bill Clinton implored Democrats to back the tax-cut deal that President Barack Obama negotiated with Republicans as the former president made a surprise appearance at Obama’s side in the White House briefing room Friday.

“I don’t believe there is a better deal out there,” Clinton told reporters who’d been summoned at a moment’s notice to see the former chief executive back the current one. Clinton and Obama had just finished a private meeting in the Oval Office.

Obama said it was a “terrific meeting” and then turned the podium over to Clinton.

There is a bit more to the story accessible here.  We only wish to add that Bill Clinton lived through 8 years of gory and glory filled nights and days and he demonstrated his power of persuasion on many occasions — some Presidential and some not so.  If he can quell the screeching of the Democrats and Progressives long enough to bring things back to a path toward normal, he will do well.

There is this short clip showing the Billster at work.  I’m sure there will be more of the same appearing on television and other moving venues.

Thanks and a flap of the cap to AP, Yahoo  and Real Politics.

Here are more articles to peruse if you have a mind to look deeper into what is alleged regarding what could turn out to be one of the biggest scams and/or financial abuses in the history of the United States.  And still the controversy rages.

Some of the links seem to be duplicates, so I’m posting the link to the web page of  Big Government which will display the links for 12/07/10  (today.)  Perhaps someone from the site will correct the links, if not there’s some which are not duplicates.

Thanks to all the media that are finally paying attention to these government bags of money and sacks of shame.

Ralphie not Alfie, but what are the 111 exemptions from health care enrollment under ObamaCare all about.  To start with there are unions, large firms and others who have garnered exemptions and if business proceeds as usual when folks have big lawyers or have made contributions to the party in power before, during or after the bill  passed this probably won’t be the last of the exemptions or delays.

I’d urge all interested people and groups to pay attention as things zing along to see where it goes from here.  There is more than a little information at the United States Health and Human Services web site which deals with the muck and mire involved in this large, thick and hard to understand piece of law. Here it is … click.

What is it all about?  I didn’t know when it first passed and I don’t know now, but here’s a video that might help you understand … another click.
