Putting the 'progressive' revolution out of it's misery... 

It is encouraging indeed to see GOP pledges to institute a pushback of ObamaCare promptly acted-upon, and with some vigor: Eric Cantor unveiled the plan late yesterday evening to pry it's tentacles off our necks... an aggressive full-repeal bill.

The Cantor ObamaCare repeal bill can be viewed online or download PdF file -here-

Unlikely a couple months back, Rep Fred Upton (R-Mi) says the number of those in favor of repeal in the House now approaches the 2/3 super-majority required to override an Obama veto. The ObamaCare repeal vote has been scheduled for January 12th, just a week from tomorrow. According to Rasmussen poll, 60% of American voters favor repeal.  

Alas, the House ObamaCare repeal bill won't be enough with the Senate still in the hands of the Democrats, unless there's quite a shift in sentiment over there. Harry Reid even issued a warning to John Boehner not to try it... that ought to play well in 2012, lol. BUT, you'd think if Dingy had he votes he'd have no reason to be making threats. Instead we get trash talk-  a sign of weakness?

John Hayward in Human Events:
Senate Democrats saw the Republicans pouring on canvas and loading their guns, so they decided to fire a warning shot across their bow. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and four members of his caucus produced a letter warning House Speaker John Boehner they would block any effort to repeal the legislation.

This is not unexpected, but if Reid manages to keep ObamaCare’s tentacles wrapped around America’s throat until 2012, copies of that letter will start turning up in Republican campaign ads. Voters compelled to choose between keeping ObamaCare or purging Democrats from the Senate might not find that a difficult choice. 

Reid’s letter also hilariously warns about the “unintended consequences” of repealing the health care bill, which is a gigantic mass of unintended consequences that devours jobs and decent health care plans as it slobbers across the land...

So what else can we do until Obama is finally frog-marched out of the Oval Office?

Patriots must remain vigilant, focussed, and energized in the spirit of the TEA party as we fight ObamaCare on all fronts... massive rejection by voters and impassioned public rallies isn't enough to stop them, and the Obama administration has made it abundantly clear that they'll be ramming still more of it down our throats any which way they can. Bad-faith, anti-democratic radicals such as we face see widespread public complacency over time as an ally... we should deny them that.

And what better example of Chairman Zero's boundless contempt for the will of the American people than the ObamaCare "death panels" (leading to euthanasia programs) that Gov Palin was ridiculed for even suspecting in 2009 -and which the Obama-Pelosi-Reid couldn't obtain via legitimate legislation due to the to the political backlash. Shamefully, these panels are already a legal reality... by executive fiat: 

American Spectator:
...the 2009 charge leveled by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and the then-House Minority Leader Boehner that Obama fully intended to set up what Palin termed government "death panels" -- panels that Boehner said would set the government on the road to euthanasia -- is no longer a charge. It's reality. By executive fiat -- in this case a new Medicare rule issued by Obama Medicare chief Dr. Donald Berwick. 

Palin, who made the charge on her Facebook page on August 7, 2009 during the health care debates, came under a fusillade of scornful and demeaning political attacks from political opponents after pointedly saying this about the prospect of death panels: 

"And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's "death panel" so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their "level of productivity in society," whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil."

Her famous sharp criticism was enough for the plan to be quickly dropped by Congress. Now, with Americans absorbed in a festive holiday and ignoring Washington momentarily, the Obama administration has found a way to achieve its death panel goal anyway...

The other major iron-in-the-fire would be the states' court challenges to the individual mandate and other elements of the 2700-page monstrocity... but despite an early victory in VA, It's hardly a slam-dunk when it gets to the US Supreme Court- all we can do is hope and pray there.

The Obama Administration continues shred the democratic process in order to implement an irreversible lurch to the left in this country by hook-or-by-crook, maximizing entitlement dependencies while pegging the needle on the national debt to force taxation upon their perceived 'class-enemies'.  They will destroy this country over the next two years even without a congressional majority... that is, unless we fight like tigers to stop them. If ObamaCare can't be fully repealed this year, the GOP -in concert with like-minded state-level leadership- must proceed with de-funding, lawsuits, whatever it takes to inflict death-by-a-thousand-cuts.

And John Boehner and Eric Cantor need to keep the heat on the statists BIG time... the majority of Americans are on our side, let Democrats explain to voters in 2012 why they ignored the will of the people not once, but twice on this unloved Left-wing power and tax grab called ObamaCare.
