Senate Democrats may drop Medicare expansion

They're letting us down.

Senate Democratic leaders said Monday that they were prepared to drop a proposed expansion of Medicare and make other changes in sweeping health legislation as they tried to rally their caucus in hopes of passing the bill before Christmas.

Harry Reid of Nevada, floated the idea about 10 days ago as away to break an intraparty impasse over his earlier proposal to create a government-run health insurance plan.

  4. Makes no sense to mess with this weak bill in order to get one, or two votes.
    We should dump this bill, rewrite it, go for a simple majority, and kill the power of one, or two Senators to stop such a serious effort.
    I'm for single payer, Medicare for all, universal, whatever you want to call it.

    The Obamanable One will sign the treaty because he is a radical communist. The signing is a tactical ploy to 1st. Further erode the unalienable rights bestowed to us by "our Creator", and handed over to us by way of the very document he fraudulently swore to up hold and defend-the Constitution, and 2nd. Steal more money from those who produce to do his part among his fellow socialist miscreants to bring about a world government of absolutism.

    Hussein Obama is a liar, a deceiver, a manipulator, and a complete and utter fraud who has no conscience. 1st. The vehement fight for the suffocation or lethal injection of born alive babies 'marked for death'. That's what the executioners in the killing rooms call babies that are to be killed-babies 'marked for death.' 2nd. The raising of over $1,000,000 to get his Marxist Muslim cousin Ray Odinga elected and establish Sharia law. Over 1,000 innocents were literally butchered with machetes by Muslims who supported Hussein Obama and his 'cause.' Thousands of Christians had to flee for their lives. 3rd. The Obamanable One's meddling in Honduras seeking to overthrow their own constitution.
    Obama believes in the AGW (anthropogenic or man-made global warming) theory. He believes in "economic and social justice" and that logically leads to "climate justice." He may believe that the US owes a "climate debt" to the rest of the world. What better way to lead the charge than to carry the ultimate banner of the radical left -- wealth redistribution -- under the auspices of the "crises of climate change.
    Death and destruction have no effect on this piece of trash as long as death and/or destruction parallel his goals-whatever his cause.

  7. Evita, you're always right, my girl. But you forgot to add that Obama is the second cousin, once-removed, of Pol-Pot, and a grand-nephew of Stalin, as well as the son of a Mao's mistress, and a direct clone of Lenin. Sent here by Hitler's brain on behalf of the lizard people, of course. IOW, we are freakin' doomed. But you knew it.

    Lordy lord...

    Leslie, that Molly Ivins quote could not be more appropriate here. :)

  8. Dusty: I'm not trying to offend you but I try to keep FB separate from the blogosphere. Except for the very early days, I pretty much limit it to family. Even then, I don't go there anymore than I have to.

    Tom: I think that would be great but don't think it has a snowball's chance in hell of happening.

    Evita and Elizabeth: Thanks for giving me a smile after all that hogwash from Mr/Ms America. Goes to show that insanity can run across all nationalities.

  9. Dusty, I'm complimented that you gave it a try. Personally I think FB is a narcissistic wasteland. I wouldn't even go there if I didn't want to know if my kids are still alive.

  10. Medicare is the only way to go. It's there. It works. It makes sense. This bill is ludicrous. Medicare for everyone, even Americans Who Care About America!

  11. But it's socialized medicine. A little sarcasm there.

  12. It's there. It works. It makes sense.

    And that's why we won't have it, JJ.

  13. Well put, JJ. I'm just sitting here feeling so sad and disgusted. Maybe Democrats need to get loud and obnoxious like the righties.
