Still the Same: TOTUS is a Spend and Tax Carter Democrat…

Not your Daddy’s moderate-Big Dawg-grow the pie-pro-business-Era of Big Govt is over-tax-cutting Democrat. This is your grandaddy’s ultraliberal-Carter-redistribute the pie-anti-business-Era of Big Govt has just begun-spend and tax Democrat.

The media lied the economy died.

The American people have read the writing on the wall and it is profane. If you look at virtually any polling TOTUS has lost the support of Indies. The Indies with whom Dems gained goodwill in the Big Dawg years. Pissed away on 70s era failed statist policies….

Rasmussen:

Just six percent (6%) of voters nationwide now expect their own taxes to go down during the Obama years. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 42% expect their taxes to go up while 40% expect little change. Another 12% are not sure.

It gets even more clear that we have seen who Obama is and he is not the moderate Clinton like Democrat the media and the pundits and the ELITIST POLITICAL CLASS sold him as, IOW we got a pig in a poke, (without even lipstick):

Seventy percent (70%) of voters expect government spending to increase during the Obama years. That’s up from 54% when he was elected and 63% since Inauguration Day.

Only six percent (6%) expect the Obama administration to reduce government spending.

Seventy-one percent (71%) say the president’s policies have increased the size of the federal deficit.

Seventy-six percent (76%) believe it is at least somewhat likely that taxes will have to be raised on the middle class to cover the cost of health care reform, even though 54% think middle class tax cuts are more important than new spending on health care.

Other recent survey data shows that 76% now view the president as politically liberal. The number who consider Obama Very Liberal jumped from 28% just before he was elected to 48% today.

Now why would only 28* have viewed him as politically liberal just before he was elected?? We are looking at you journOlists….

We're gonna need a bigger graph.....

We're gonna need a bigger graph.....

WH Doubles Down on Public Option: Sebelius insists the media created the confusion…

Update: Drew at AceHQ has the NBC poll numbers reflecting a plurality of Americans oppose the public option. He went to MSNBC so we don’t have to 🙂 When even NBC-GE can’t spin a poll to show support for the public option you know they are really bleeding support (they must be losing even moderate Dems now to get adults showing negative, much less likely voters)….

That is not the Sunday interview she knew. We have always been at war with Eastasia

The Health and Human services secretary completely denies ever implying the public option was off the table and blames the news media

The Sincere Tyranny of Eric Massa (patronizing-condescending: D-NY) says he will vote ‘against constituent wishes, opinions interests” if he “thinks it is best for them”…

Courtesy of TheNRCC

Massa needs to read some CS Lewis:

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

C. S. Lewis

Did anyone tell this guy we aren’t in a feudal system? Is he AWARE of how he holds his office? Is he saying he will do what’s best regardless of the consequences for his political career? Cuz then that is someone acting upon conviction which MAYBE on a good day I could understand that. ..seems as though he is just going to ignore what HE THINKS are ignorant deluded consituents…

He even says he will vote against THEIR INTERESTS…ADAMANTLY he says….so now we don’t even know what our own interests are? OMG they are losin it….deep group delusion to hold up this long outside the bubble….that’s why Pelosi is waiting until late September to vote, to have ‘cooler heads prevail’. What they mean is when we get them back inside the beltway swamp and reprogram them to make all those thousands of pesky CONSTITUENTS seem like a dream.. wow.

betcha that is what Pelosi is laying down to them. the poor people are being lied to! NO MORONS YOU DIDNT READ YOUR OWN CRAPTASTIC BILL! WE HAVE THE FACTS AND PAGE NUMBERS YOU NINNIES! arrgle

Update: Sen Carper confirms quid pro quo! Is Pharma the Chamberlain of the health care wars? YES!!!: Boehner to Big Pharma: Don’t be an appeaser….

Update: Courtesy of HA, Sen Carper CONFIRMS the quid pro quo deal b/w phaRma and TOTUS for the ad buy. He is actually whining about it, apparently not grasping the IMMORALITY snd perhaps ILLEGALITY of the deal. He is upset that Baucus isn’t sticking to the right $ figure! What a maroon!

Okay Seniors, it is up to you. TOTUS promised you could buy RXs from Canada and he sold you down the river for a 150m ad buy and buy in from phaRma for reforms.

CALL YOUR CRITTERS! JUST SAY NO TO THE QUID PRO QUO!

Right on John!

Politico:

In a scathing, borderline condescending, “dear colleague,” Boehner urged Tauzin to unwind PhRMA’s deal with President Barack Obama and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) to support health care legislation in exchange for profit protection under rules established in the controversial 2003 prescription-drug bill….

…Drugmakers agreed to find tens of billions in savings in order to trim the federal government’s prescription-drug tab under Medicare in exchange for other protections, like allowing the industry to preserve a lucrative rebate structure under Medicare Part D and the White House’s agreement to oppose any move to force the government import lower-priced drugs from Canada. The industry also committed to spend $150 million to advertise in support of health care reform – although it has not yet endorsed any of the four bills to pass out of committee.

Boehner’s letter, which is excerpted after the jump, speaks for itself. But the central thrust is that PhRMA cut a bad deal, in large part, because Democrats will eventually renege, Boehner argues. It reads like a jilted lover laughing at his ex-girlfriend after she gets dumped by the replacement boyfriend. Check it out.

These are EXCERPTS of the letter:

“Dear Billy,

“Appeasement rarely works as a conflict resolution strategy. This is as true in the arena of policymaking as it is in schoolyards across America. When a bully asks for your lunch money, you may have no choice but to fork it over. But cutting a deal with the bully is a different story, particularly if the “deal” means helping him steal others’ money as the price of protecting your own.

“The simple truth is, two wrongs don’t make a right. And the short-sighted health care deal PhRMA struck with the Obama Administration at your urging provides confirmation of this time-tested maxim on an epic and tragic scale.

“The “bully” in this case is Big Government. At your behest, PhRMA has chosen to accommodate a Washington takeover of health care at the expense of the American people in hopes of securing favorable treatment and future profits. It’s a short-sighted bargain that leaves your own customers and employees behind. And it now has all the markings of a deal gone sour.
