    You Had Your Chance

    Mr Camp.

    The groveling for permission from their federal masters continues as the Ways and Means chair says "pretty please" to one of Obama's cronies.  From THE HILL:

    Reps. Dave Camp and Fred Upton endorsed Michigan's request Thursday in a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Michigan asked HHS last week to phase in new requirements that govern how insurers can spend their money.

    "While approving Michigan's applcation will not solve the fundamental flaws in Democrats' health care law, on behalf of Michigan residents, we believe it is important to voice our strong support for steps that can limit the damage inflicted on consumers as a result of this misguided law," Camp and Upton wrote.

    Remember a few days ago?  You know, when you and 200+ other Repbublicans had a royal flush backed up with cards up the sleeves, and a gun under the table?  

    You DO REMEMBER, right?

    You know, a couple days before you folded to a pair of Jacks, held by a guy with a blinky eye "tell", and an audience of investors who were counting on the congress to FINALLY HOLD THE LINE. Right?  A few days before the market hit the skids in the worst way in two years.

    And then the guy holding the jacks?  He spent $240 Billion of his "winnings" in one day.

    Oh yeah, that's right you guys have a memory problem.  ~ More Below ~

    The congress to be sure has already forgotten its pledge to put before the public any bill for three days.

    The compromise you rushed through that leaves the world wondering how in the hell the US will somehow pay its bills in a few years, means short term paper might be OK, but long term the United States will be viewed as a bad bet. Ill bet you didn't look at the constitutional element either.  Oh yeah I know, you forgot what is in the constitution.

    You didn't challenge the health care bill's constitutionality in 2010 when it was being debated did you Dave Camp?  How about you Fred Upton? No. I guess not.  And even after PLEDGING to affirm constitutionality for each bill passed in the house, it only took 7 months to lose that pledge in the bottom of the briefcase.

    But Dave, did you remember coming to our group meeting in Traverse City?  Remember how you said if some of the mechanisms which were happening did not remove Obama care, then you would try the "de-funding option?"  C'mon man!  THINK, Damn it!

    I was the one who asked if you would do it, and you said that was the alternative that was on the table.


    Too bad, because you had the opportunity, you had your chance and you blew it.

    And now you are back at the table begging for scraps. SHAME.

    Um, Commissioner... (none / 0) (#1)

    ...are you seriously expecting different results from either of these sworn Lefty deadbeats?  Ferchrissake, those grovelers of the alleged right just publicly got their asses handed to them by a DNC blank sheet of paper.

    C'mon Commish, expecting anything different?  {facepalm}

    As the saying goes... The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.  Nor does the in collusion turd from the bird.

    The march to Obamacare?  Commence, ho!  But some silly gottdamn bridge?  Ya, that just might barely spark a fire under the ass of a TEA recall.

    Ah yes, the Pious Correctness of the Right... it's so comforting on the road to serfdom.

    . . . spoke to this briefly at a River City Patriots meeting last night.  His profession prior to becoming a State Representative was that of a banker.  Not once in that line of work did he recall anyone defaulting because they had not enough debt; yet needing to take on more debt to avoid default on the existing debt was precisely the logic being used for the past few weeks in DC.

    He then went on to point out that, even though a good chunk of what the administration did over the past seven months wasn't exactly popular, Michigan is now on its way to regaining its AAA bond rating, which we lost in 2003 under Granholm's lack-of-leadership.

    And just as an encouragement to y'all to keep your powder dry (and keep this comment thread relevant to the original topic), yes, the Lieutenant Governor was grilled with regard to the NITC.  Having listened to his explanation, I now believe that we really are hearing only one side of the story, and I will be getting Calley's take on this posted here soon . . . and then those that still have issue can rip away (on that thread).
