WH and Big Pharma win, consumers lose: RX Reimportation Amendment voted down in Senate by ‘progressive’ Democrats Durbin, Schumer, Kerry, Reid, Burris, Rockefeller…

The SINGLE cost saving item for Americans in this horror show of a health care bill was just killed by the progressive Democratic Senators. Remember come 2010/2012, these Democrats and this WH ARE THE STATUS QUO. No change here. DOZENS of REPUBLICANS votes AYE! Nice commercials for the elections.  For those keeping score:

HOUSING:  Banks batting a thousand, homeowners a big zero (78B allocated from TARP, 3 million defaults (now 4.8 million), but only 31,000 mods).

HEALTH CARE: Insurers/big Pharma happy as pigs in shxt, American consumers facing higher costs, mandates and no ‘choice and competition’ plus the kick to the deficit.

SMALL BUSINESS LENDING: Again banks laugh at POTUS, Gasparino in the NYPost today reported that Obama schmoozed the bankers when the cameras left. No loans being made, bonuses back on track for the big banks.

EMPLOYMENT: Need we go there? Ginormous stimulus payoff to who? No one knows but it sure as shxt didnt create a million jobs, or even a verifiable half a million jobs.

FDL:

…Bunches of Democrats have decided to vote against this in the past few roll calls, this is going to be extremely close.

Senators are huddled around the desk tabulating the votes, this is one of those where the outcome is not pre-determined. Dick Durbin has a panicked look on his face.

…A late move toward the no side could deny this the needed 60 votes. They just got Lieberman to vote against it, along with luminaries like Kerry, Schumer, Reid, Durbin, Burris and Rockefeller.

…Lautenberg’s amendment has passed the Senate four separate times. It clearly kills re-importation because we haven’t seen any. This defeat of the Dorgan amendment is simply being done to preserve a corrupt deal.

Yeas 51, nays 48. Dorgan amendment does not pass….

UPDATE from FDL:

…Roll call on the Dorgan Amendment is here. The White House had to line up 31 no votes from the Democratic caucus to kill this….

Obama Nobel Prize Pick Up Speech underway…

Let’s listen to some Norwegian Wood, the audience looked like slabs of it listening to his Me, Me, Me speech…

I woke up and turned on my tv and there was Obama proclaiming his EXISTENCE as a result of MLK and war and peace somehow..clearly the WH speech writers are either constitutionally (heh) incapable of avoiding a ‘messiah speech’ OR they really are in a bubble and do not understand that proclaiming the life of the greatest civil rights leader in American history as a footnote, a precursor to the birth of the ‘real thing’ ie, Teh Obama who has accomplished nothing but winning an election is just..atrocious IMO, and they do it constantly. Then he congratulated himself for banning torture and closing Gitmo..

As someone who stands here as a direct consequence of Dr. King’s life’s work, I am living testimony to the moral force of non-violence.

Update: I really wanted an excuse to play this song…Obama gave me one….

Update: h/t HotAir. A video comparing Obama’s subservient bow to Akihito to MANY MANY other leaders NOT bowing to the Emperor, because of course it is NOT DONE, because it is a sign of subservience he needs to stop folding like a puppet with his strings cut every time he sees a ruler he thinks we ‘wronged’  somehow or that he looks up to in his ‘multicultured’ mind (he didn’t bow his head down for QEII) unless he wants to resign and then he can acknowledge fealty to whatever overlord he so desires!

While You Were Sleeping: Pelosi Health Care Bill passes House 220-215

HotAir has all the coverage, comments, here are some highlights:

FINAL VOTE RESULTS FOR ROLL CALL 887

Cao R-LA the sole GOP Aye vote, (he thinks he has a deal with the WH to help LA the poor deluded critter) *h/t onlineanalyst at HA comments:

Over at American Spectator blog, Phillip Klein notes the following re the Cao (R) vote to pass the Pelosi atrocity.

Joseph Cao, the lone Republican to vote in favor of the health care bill, released a statement explaining his decision. In his statement, he emphasizes the adoption of the Stupak pro-life amendment, and also notes:

“Today, I obtained a commitment from President Obama that he and I will work together to address the critical health care issues of Louisiana including the FMAP crisis and community disaster loan forgiveness, as well as issues related to Charity and Methodist Hospitals. And, I call on my constituents to support me as I work with him on these issues.

RIO WINS!!! CHICAGO ELIMINATED IN FIRST ROUND!!! WOOHOO!!!Update 7:IOC Video Presentations; Lula says yes we can Brazil!

Update: Remarks from the WH after returning from Copenhagen:

Update: Victor Davis Hanson neatly encapsulates our thoughts on how hypocritical it was for TOTUS to try to take the games from Rio in light of his constant harangues on America:

1) Obama’s brand is trans-nationalism and an “America is not exceptional” multiculturalism. According to his worldview, it makes sense that a South American country — especially a powerful, ascendant country such as Brazil — should at last have its turn at hosting the Olympics. It did not seem consistent that a politician who had reached out to the Castros, Chávez, Morales, and Ortega, in parochial fashion, would lobby for his own hometown over a “yes, we can” Latin American initiative, especially one involving an exciting city such as Rio…

TalkLeft says Chicago spent 50 Million on the bid! WAY TO GO THERE MAYOR DALEY! How many JOBS could have been created with that money? unreal.

12:51pm EST: RIO WINS!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS RIO AND SOUTH AMERICA!!! Hope to see you in 2016!!

Uhm someone tell Jarret and Daley to go round up the Obots in Chicago they are still standing there LIVE on Fox holding Chicago 2016 signs up, lol and dont worry anyone who is sad America will have the games again as we have had 7 times already..(note- N America has had them 7 times, USA 5)

Gore Vidal sorry he backed Obama over Hillary, says we will have military dictatorship in US soon…

Another one who made the WRONG decision. At least Gore Vidal is man enough to admit it (UPDATE: Unlike Kathleen SNOB Parker who whines about him after loudly proclaiming him The Bomb in snob speak for over a year. I am still convinced Parker and the OTHER Snob, the lefty SNOB Sally Quinn were separated at birth or something, both utter idiots with an intellectual lisp):

UKTimes:

(…)Last year he famously switched allegiance from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama during the Democratic nomination process for president. Now, he reveals, he regrets his change of heart. How’s Obama doing? “Dreadfully. I was hopeful. He was the most intelligent person we’ve had in that position for a long time. But he’s inexperienced. He has a total inability to understand military matters. ..”

...Vidal now believes, as he did originally, Clinton would be the better president. “Hillary knows more about the world and what to do with the generals. History has proven when the girls get involved, they’re good at it. Elizabeth I knew Raleigh would be a good man to give a ship to.”The Republicans will win the next election, Vidal believes; though for him there is little difference between the parties.

…We’ll have a military dictatorship fairly soon, on the basis that nobody else can hold everything together….

Since I disagree with every other word Vidal said you can go read the rest if you are so inclined. I do NOT believe Americans are ignorant as Vidal does. I believe we are SICK AND TIRED of intellectuals thinking they know better and telling us how to live our daily lives. Gore Vidal is one of them. Funny how despite all their ‘smarts’ they bet on the wrong horse much to all of our dismay…
