Repeal Vote Back on Track

Out of deference to the victims of the Tuscon Massacre, House Republicans postponed legislative business until today, with full intentions of moving forward on repealing the “job-killing” Obama Care law.  The Dems were, of course, hoping that in the spirit of lowering the rhetoric that House Republicans would wimp out on all controversial legislation until about January 2013 or so.  Well, that’s not going to happen.

The other prong of the Democrat attack is to say that changes made to Obama Care should be done on a bipartisan basis, much like the tweaking of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  However, those pieces of legislation were passed with bipartisan support (despite Democrat opposition by the way), while Obama Care was a nightmarish partisan throat-jam which led to a Democrat “shellacking.”  Plus, to equate Obama Care’s incremental statist takeover of 1/7th of the US economy with the Civil Rights Act is completely laughable to anyone paying attention.

The Dems are desperate and predictably hoping for the GOP to fail.  I anticipate that all this artificial bipartisan love-fest will end when the Dems finally accuse the Republicans of being unreasonable for not acting like good RINOs in the coming weeks.
