Twofer Tuesday: Democrats are focused on Winning the Battle but are losing the War & Team Obama says high Unemployment to last all year…

Even if Pelosi and Obama take this Hill, they will lose the war. November is only a few months away. Any Dem Critter who is considering ‘making history’ with this ‘non-vote-vote’ BS should consider that their majority is about to evaporate and the GOP will feel free to utilize the same brute force shortly…and next time Americans will support them doing so in order to take back the economy and allow job creation to take place…

And the voters will knock the Dems out come November…

Dems who vote Aye or ‘self execute’ this monstrosity had better line up their next jobs, and don’t count on UE dropping anytime soon per…Team Obama economic whiz kids:

US employers won’t hire enough workers this year to lower the jobless rate much below the level of 9.7% reached in February, three Obama administration economic officials said today.

The proportion of Americans who can’t find work is likely to “remain elevated for an extended period,” Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, White House budget director Peter Orszag and Christina Romer, chairman of the Council of Economic statement.Advisers, said in a joint  The officials said unemployment may even rise “slightly” over the next few months as discouraged workers start job-hunting again.

“We do not expect further declines in unemployment this year,” the officials said in testimony prepared for the House Appropriations Committee. They predicted the economy would add about 100,000 jobs a month on average — not enough to bring the jobless rate down substantially…

All these Dems will have to tout as an achievement will be the bill the people hate, a bill which will not stop insurers from pre-exing ADULTS for YEARS, but which will raise our taxes and costs immediately..good frakkin luck with that y’all..

The Bishops Conference came out against the bill today as wel. NRO has it:

Statement by Cardinal Francis George, OMI

The Cost is too High; the Loss is too Great

The Catholic Bishops of the United States have long and consistently advocated for the reform of the American health care system. Their experience in health care and in Catholic parishes has acquainted them with the anguish of mothers who are unable to afford prenatal care, of families unable to ensure quality care for their children, and of those who cannot obtain insurance because of preexisting conditions.

Throughout the discussion on health care over the last year, the bishops have advocated a bipartisan approach to solving our national health care needs. They have urged that all who are sick, injured or in need receive necessary and appropriate medical assistance, and that no one be deliberately killed through an expansion of federal funding of abortion itself or of insurance plans that cover abortion. These are the provisions of the long standing Hyde amendment, passed annually in every federal bill appropriating funds for health care; and surveys show that this legislation reflects the will of the majority of our fellow citizens. The American people and the Catholic bishops have been promised that, in any final bill, no federal funds would be used for abortion and that the legal status quo would be respected.

Update: PPP: Rubio has 32 point primary lead over Crist; Our Charlie Crist numbers tomorrow will be ‘absolutely brutal’

Update: WOW! PPP wasn’t kidding, Sorry Charlie! Expect him to run as an Indy or Dem, I have long suspected he and O had a ‘gentlemans’ agreement that he not push for a revote in the Dem primaries for FL..frakkers…

…Rubio now leads Crist 60-28, including a staggering 71-17 lead with conservatives. Crist has a 49-36 advantage with party moderates, but they account for just 31% of likely primary voters compared to 65% who describe themselves as conservative….

Marco baby….

NRO:

From the PPP blog. I would add emphasis, but the whole thing could be in bold:

We are going to have absolutely brutal numbers out on Charlie Crist tomorrow.

Here’s a little preview: among Republican primary voters 19% would like to see him as Governor a year from now, 14% want him in the Senate, and 56% want him out of elected office.

If there is any path to his winning office in Florida again- and there may not be- it’s as something other than a Republican.

Marco on the health care bills in the House and Senate:

Health-Care Proposal & Process Are Fundamentally Flawed.

Marco Rubio at The Corner:

(…) How many bipartisan, Massachusetts-like pushbacks is it going to take for President Obama to understand the American people want to reform health care without changing and abandoning all the things that have made our system great?

How many town halls, tea parties and elections will it take for the American people to finally convey to Washington that we need to scrap this flawed proposal and process, and start anew on step-by-step reforms?

I join the American people in opposing this proposal on policy grounds as well as the procedural approach being considered to ram it through.

If President Obama and congressional Democrats go down the road of reconciliation, they will leave no doubt in the American people’s minds that Washington is broken and 2008’s promise of “Change” was little more than a campaign slogan that should not have been believed in the first place.

The health-care proposal is a deeply flawed plan that should be scrapped entirely in favor of a truly bipartisan approach that pursues step-by-step reforms….

MiM- Marco Rubio is the first conservative we have given money to as recovering Dems. Yeah he is that good, he makes me want to be fiscally responsible, ooooh! Marco-Marco-Marco- GOP needs to get that calendar together cough, cough..
