Liberals "Tired of Compromise" …Ready to Ram Obamacare Down America's Throat
— They created the Stimulus Bill behind closed doors and passed the bill without any Republican votes in the House.
— They created the Cap & Tax Bill behind closed doors and passed the bill with 8 Republican votes in the House.
— They created Obamacare behind closed doors, bussed in their Far Left supporters to town hall meetings and now they are ready to ram it down America’s throat, too!
Analysis: Liberals tired of health care compromise
Frustrated liberals have a question for President Barack Obama and Democratic lawmakers: Isn’t it time the other guys gave a little ground on health care? What’s the point of a bipartisan bill, they ask, if we’re making all the concessions?
A case in point:
Sen. Charles Grassley, a key Republican negotiator on health care, was on a winning streak as Congress recessed for August, having wrung important concessions from Democrats, including an agreement not to tax employer-provided health insurance and a limit to demands on drug companies.
How did Grassley reciprocate? With an attack that struck Democrats as stunning and baseless. Grassley told an Iowa crowd he would not support a plan that “determines when you’re going to pull the plug on Grandma.” The remark echoed conservative activists who wrongly claim a House health care bill would require Medicare recipients to discuss their end-of-life plans with doctors.
For liberals supporting far-reaching changes to the nation’s health care system, it was another sign that months of negotiations have been a one-way street. It’s time to move on without Republicans, they say.
On Tuesday, liberals were fuming over Obama’s recent remarks suggesting he might also yield on the federally run insurance option he’s been promoting. Many saw it as a huge concession that could leave them with nothing more than watered-down insurance cooperatives.
Get ready America.
Here comes Obamacare.
