Repealing Obamacare Was A Complete Waste of Time

Repealing Obamacare was a complete waste of the people's time

Most of my Republican brethren are celebrating the House’s vote to repeal Obamacare but I think it was a colossal waste of time.

They say it was a moral victory and sets the tone for the new Congress because the people had lost faith in their representatives. That may be true but if they really wanted to set the tone and draw a political line in the sand they could have passed a law requiring all elected officials to make their records public. After all, you cannot get a job in America without showing your Social Security card – that would have been a statement.

Another way they could have fired up the base is to impeach the president. Why not? Bitterman extraordinaire, Senator John Kerry and other Democrats called for the impeachment of President Bush. You talk about setting a tone; this would have been the political equivalent of slapping the president in the face with a glove.

And yes I understand the repercussions that would result from this kind of move. It would set a precedent that could be used in the future to impeach presidents for seemingly trivial things but what President Obama has done to this country is not trivial. He has dug a hole so deep, it may take generations to recover from his failed economic policies.

The GOP would be better served to focus on getting a handle on the out of control spending rather than wasting the people’s time on Obamacare. We’re already hearing rumblings of the Republicans backing away from the key parts of their Pledge to America, which was to cut $100 Billion in spending and ban earmarks. I’ve got news for you Congress, the electorate is awake now and we will hold you accountable.

  • No it wasn’t. It flagged the 10 “Blue Dog” democrats who voted against obamacare last and then turned around and voted against this as the phonies they are. That has value.

  • Rick – The moral of the story is this: All politicians lie. The GOP made a pledge to America to do all of these wonderful things and now they’re about to renege on the two biggest promises of the Pledge while they hide behind the repeal which does NOTHING FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

  • If anything is to be done about Obamacare, the GOP needs to do it now before parts of it ‘kick in’. Once these parts kick in people will ‘get used to’ the dish they are being served and it will be harder later on to make any necessary changes. So, now people are going to blame the GOP because they have to unravel and decipher the complete monstrosity Obama and his ilk have created, and created AGAINST what 70% of the American population wanted in the first place. How is that the GOP’s fault? They said they would ‘repeal it’ and they have started the process…

    The Democrats would have been better off reigning in Medicaid and Medicare getting a better ‘handle’ on these two against the rampant fraud they create and have created, then gone ahead and tweaked these programs already in place. But in order to pass the “pork around” create their ‘utopia of entitlements’ social justice and just plain digging a hole so deep we can all be so ‘thankful’ to work ourselves to death trying to get out of it. And hard to believe, I DID want to retire one day, AND and under the age of 70.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    Where’s the Beef, in Republican candidates, in 2015?

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
