KOmmies Build Public Option Field of Dreams
The KOmmies just can't give up on their beloved ObamaCare which is now DOA despite next week's meeting with the Republicans in the Blair House. However, the KOmmies and much of the left just can't accept this fact. Instead they have gone into deep fantasy mode and are now speculating that public option ObamaCare could easily happen via reconciliation. And it is that very speculation about a highly unlikely event that keeps their hopes alive...for now as you can see in this KOmmie THREAD, "Updated: Public Option Through Reconciliation Scoreboard: 18 Signers + 3 Supporters = 21." Yes, they are now acting like an impossibility is a probability. Of course, reconciliation will NOT be happening for a myriad of reasons. For one thing, they are up against a hard time limit of sometime in April to even accomplish this. After that, reconciliation is already off the table officially although it won't even be attempted for many other reasons. What is really laughable, is the near impossibility of the House approving the Senate bill as is, then getting it signed into law by Obama, then back to the Senate for reconciliation revisions to fix that travesty with just 51 vote approval per revision. That is is NOT going to happen so it is really laughable that the KOmmies believe that the reconciliation gimmick is going to work for public option. So let us now join the KOmmies in their public option Fantasyland in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, enjoying the spectacle of the KOmmies sinking ever deeper into unreality, is in the [barackets]:
Updated: Public Option Through Reconciliation Scoreboard: 18 Signers + 3 Supporters = 21
[KOmmie Reality Check Scoreboard: 0.00]
It's been a great day on the front lines! We've now got public support from over 20 senators and plenty that are "still considering." Let's give them plenty to consider. Keep calling. And call the president at at 202-456-1111 and tell him to get on board. Leadership for a Change!
[The FUnniest thing about this whole fantasy will be watching them in a few weeks when NOTHING happens on the public option front. The mass meltdown will be HILARIOUS to watch!!!]
Let's keep score!
[Good idea. So far KOmmie connection to reality remains at a big fat ZERO.]
Things have been happening fast this morning. Yesterday it was 8 and today it is 16. Thanks to your efforts this morning Boxer, Reed, Mikulski, Tom Udall and Lautenberg signed the letter.
[All they are doing is extending the plank which the KOmmies are doomed to fall off of.]
This effort has legs people.
Keep up the fight!
[And pray for the Alternate Reality to arrive.]
And CALL the White House: 202-456-1111. Tell Obama to come out and support this effort. Demand he stand up for what he promised us during the campaign for a change! With his leadership this can happen.
[Yeah. Obama couldn't even make a watered down version of ObamaCare happen and now you think he is going to go all out for public option. You need to be popping more of those reality altering meds.]
NO PLACE TO HIDE. With 50 democratic votes we can pass health care reform. They must support it, or they are against health care reform.
[I enjoy watching KOmmies on hallucinogens.]
Update: Just saw that Shumer and Shaheen signed!!! WTG Netroots!!!! Yell Louder!!!!!
[Tune In! Turn On! Drop Out!]
UPDATE: Thursday, 4:56 PM -- The White House is declining to comment on the push to reinsert the public option into the debate.
[Yeah, and somehow you expect them to go all out for public option?]
Hey Obama! How about some leadership...for a change!
[And this is the lion that you expect to roar for public option?]
Keep Fighting! Thank you for your efforts! Keep Calling!
[This KOmmie is definitely headed for the Rubber Room when the rock solid April reconciliation deadline comes and goes. And now for the rest of the reality challenged KOmmies...]
The era of procrastination, half-measures, soothing & baffling expedients, & delays, is coming to a close. We are entering a period of consequences - Churchill
[A quote from Obama's least favorite Brit.]
Here are the CONGRESSIONAL TOLL FREE NUMBERS I found. They get you to the switchboard and sometimes to the office
[How about if I just provide you with some walls to beat your heads against?]
The main thing (always) is to keep our "eyes on the prize!"
[Even if it's a Booby Prize?]
We need to raise the money to put togrther a 50 individual state polls on the Public option. We should get 2 polling companies and two MSM outlets to agree to participate. We could force senators to support this.
[Why am I envisioning Any Hardy yelling at Judy Garland about putting on a show right at home in the barn?]
Just when it seemed that hope had died..
[...complete unreality sets in.]
pass the damn healthcare bill, through reconcilliation if need be but PASS IT or find another job"
[Prepare the tranquillizer darts for this KOmmie come April.]
We are almost to twenty Senators. The number has more than doubled in one day. This is what the public demands. We can win this one. We only need 50 votes.
[Please don't knock this KOmmie out of his reverie by informing him that reconciliation in the Senate can ONLY be used on items related to the budget...NOT setting up a whole new socialist health care system.]
If your Senators are sure NO, then get on the phone to others. If you don't have long distance, like me, email them. If you have a relative there, it's better, bacause it will have the right zip.
[HURRY! Waste your time on absolute nothingness!!!]
Bernie Sanders sounded crazy on Rachel Maddow's show last night. Not only would a public option pass via reconciliation, but education, jobs, energy, kitchen sink. What the heck was he saying?
[Bernie was saying that the Senate was just $10 away from reconciliation.]
But Sanders sounded like he was in some alternate universe.
[Sounds like he fits right in with the rest of you KOmmies.]
The public option will affect the budget (save us money), so we CAN use reconciliation.
[Um...actually EVERY bill will affect the budget but nice try with that stretch.]
I will tell you all before you are hurt by this. you cannot pass the public option through recon, because of the BYRD RULE! this is all just pandering to the base. As such, the potus will now pivot without the public option noting it will look better in the elections to independents that there was no government takeover. it is called strategy. It is not the POTUS fault, it is the rules
[Finally, a winner of the coveted Kewpie Doll.]
I just spoke to someone at Sen. Shaheen's Manchester office and was told she does support reconciliation and the public option. I asked when she would come out publically along with the other 19 Senators and was told he would pass the message on to Ms. Shaheen.
[And all the while that person in Shaheen's office was making a circular motion with his hand indicating that yet another loon was calling and actually believed the concealed brushoff.]
right now, the majority, if not all of the calls the Senators are receiving are encouraging support; in favor of this action.
[This is a KOmmie that needs to look up the definition of the word, "pander."]
Strike now, in great numbers, while we have advantage and can MAKE THE NEWS! This is what the Netroots is for!
[This is what the NUtroots is for!]
I got through to the statewide office. The guy who answered knew what I was talking about before I even described it to him.
[And that guy whispered "another NUtcase who actually believes in PO via reconciliation," to the others in the office.]
DC is closed for the evening, of course, and Albuquerque is now closed until Monday because of a staff retreat. Will try DC again tomorrow
[The best thing about this is all the WASTED energy on the part of the KOmmies. The burnout in a few weeks will be FUn to watch!]
I'll be making my calls to Murray and Cantwell. Excellent action diary MF!
[Beating your head against a wall will have more effect than what you are doing.]
I just got off the phone with a staffer at Jeanne Shaheen's office and she told me that Senator Shaheen has signed the letter.
[What's also FUnnie here is why would Obama even want to meet with Republicans at all if all this could be done via reconciliation? Answer: Because it can't be done via reconciliation but this hasn't penetrated tiny KOmmie skulls.]
Staffer said he received the letter and will make a decision tonight or tomorrow.
[Beat your head against the wall. BEAT IT! BEAT IT! BEAT IT!]
I had nearly given up on HCR. My spirits are revived.
[And how much did you shell out to Bev Harris in 2004?]
Add Durbin, Shaheen, Dodd & Schumer?
[Might as well add Adobo seasoning for all the good it will do.]
Feingold now on board with public option through reconciliation!!!
[Posted the KOmmie with the Happy Urinations soaking his diaper.]
Is there any way we could organize a money bomb for the assenting senators? Would be a great way to get others on board as well.
[No problem. Just empty your wallets and forward the funds to BBV Bev.]
