    Tomorrow's affair may be the last straw

    There is no argument about what pulled together in 2010, the activism necessary to regain majorities in all levels of government.  It was the general repudiation of Obama policies, and in particular; Obamacare, the top down unconstitutional mandate that we purchase something for the privilege of being a US citizen. Citizens already incensed by GW bush's overreach and bailout of banking that should have been allowed to fail, found the agenda of Obama, and the passage of Obamacare particularly motivating to remove the usurpers or any supporters of them from power.

    In Michigan such constitutional stalwarts as Dan Benishek, Dave Camp and a number of other Republicans pledged to remove funding, and doom the takeover of medicine from the lack of operability as a means of last resort if turning over the legislation directly proved impossible.  Dave Camp for his part said so in front of 50+ in the summer of 2010, a fact that could be verified by any of them, and a current staffer of Benishek's who worked for the Ways and Means chair at that time as well.

    Yet only a few days ago, a continuing resolution, funding 98% of the planned spending until September 27th was passed.

    No measure has been discussed from those who in 2010 promised us repeal in SOME form. No line crossed has triggered an absolute response from the Republican controlled congress. In fact, NOTHING but excuses have been the standard talking points as we watched this president make a mockery of the message these men were sent to deliver. And now we must worry about whether 7 or 8 Republicans in the Michigan State Senate will vote for Our state's capitulation to this unacceptable overreach into  our most personal health choices?

    If the lesson of millions of conservatives who sat on their hands in the 2012 presidential contest is ignored, We are in trouble.  If MI Senate Republicans throw away their principles when there is such an opportunity for push-back, there will be little reason to bother with them later.

    Not a threat.  Just reporting the truth.

    Plato's Allegory of The Cave comes to mind.  Frankly, nothing would warm the cockles of my heart more than folks in this state finally getting a clue they're being played as fools, and begin the process of sweeping the Gerrymandered Obsolete Progressives into the dustbin of history.

    Like goonionism in America, the Republicans started in Michigan, and fittingly so, the Republicans should begin their gasping death rattle breath off to the grave next to the Whigs.

    If it's not Newt's mandate ideas enacted by Willard as the template for ObamessiahCare, then it's some other crap that Team R will screw us with even when they know we're watching them like a hawk.
