Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Bart even more Stup(id)ak than thought, from Fox News [1]:

President Obama signed the Senate health care bill into law Tuesday. He did not sign the executive order on abortion negotiated with Michigan Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak in an 11th-hour arrangement that may well have saved the entire health care reform effort.

A White House official told Fox, Obama will not sign the Executive Order Tuesday and has set no specific date to do so. Stupak predicted Obama would sign the order later this week. The White House said only that Obama would sign the order “soon.”

Dumb Bart cashed it all for a mere promise by Obama to sign an executive order.   The same president who promised a middle class tax cut but instead delivered the largest tax increase in our history.

Another stupid democrat,  from Dr. Milton R. Wolf, Wolf  Files [2]:

REP DENNIS MOORE (D-KS) FINALLY CORNERED. ADMITS NOT READING BILL: Dennis Moore, appearing on KMBZ radio Kansas City Morning News with EJ & Ellen [3], was finally forced to answer one of my questions [4]. Ellen asks:

I was reading this article in the Washington Times by Dr. Milton Wolf who is a Kansas radiologist. You know, I think he actually talked to you and contacted your office. He writes that there’s “a scheme in this bill” that “actually penalizes your primary care physician if he is in the top 10 percent of doctors who refer patients to specialists, no matter how valid the reason.” That brings up questions of rationing. That brings up questions of quality health care. Is that still in there?

Moore answers:

I don’t know. And I will find out. But I don’t know if that’s in there. This is, as you know, a multi-hundred, several hundred pages of bill, but uh, uh, I’ll check with Dr. Wolf directly too and talk to him and find out what, what, what his concern is because I don’t know that.

What arrogance or blind ideology compels a man to allow the government takeover of the finest health care delivery system in the world without even reading the bill?

I suspect none of Mrs. Pelosi’s co-conspirators actually read the bill.   Do you really think any congressman as dumb as Dennis Moore or Mrs. Pelosi should be in charge of your health care?

Steny Hoyer feels threatened,Michael O’Brien, Hill [6]:

House Democratic and Republican leaders have conferred to discuss a response to a “significant” number of threats against lawmakers.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said that he, along with Democratic and Republican leaders, have discussed new security precautions that lawmakers should take after a spike in threats to lawmakers following a controversial healthcare vote this past weekend.

Well so do I, video:

Dan Riehl, Riehl World View [8], responds

To be clear, I don’t advocate violence against elected officials in America. That said, what would GOP officials standing up and condemning it have to do with anything?  Is this just political grandstanding from Steny? [9] It sure sounds like it.

What’s a matter, Steny? You folks were high-fiving it all around immediately after acting like complete tyrants forcing a bill down the throat of Americans who told you repeatedly how much they didn’t want it. You certainly looked and sounded tough enough then. Now, you cowards are afraid to go back to your districts and face the voters? Why am I not surprised.

Dan when the state is making threats to control three hundred million citizens, it is better considered as self-defense.   Well the Federal Bureau of Investigation respond to Congress” threat to personal liberty?   I think not.
