First the Wide Load Coming Through hubbub and now this? Does Bubba hope to clear the road for Hillary by deep-sixing Barry’s baby?
President Obama scrambled to find a coherent response Tuesday after former President Clinton jammed the administration by saying it should keep its promise that people could keep their health insurance plans if they liked them.
The White House said Obama agreed with Clinton, but it offered no concrete idea on how that could be done.
Anxiety is growing among congressional Democrats, with the House poised to vote this week on Republican legislation to let insurers offer their old plans even if they don’t meet the new standards required by ObamaCare.
Whatever Bill Clinton’s motives — Republicans say he is distancing his wife, Hillary Clinton, from the ObamaCare debacle in advance of a White House run — his comments sharply intensified pressure on the president to change his signature law.
The White House opposes the pending House Republican bill but has no alternative yet. The quicker Obama comes up with an answer the better, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Tuesday.
The GOP should add a package including interstate insurance sales and Health Savings Accounts and assorted other improvements, and dare Dems to vote against it — or Obama to veto. He drove the car into the ditch; they’ll just be pulling it out. [Instapundit]
Oh right, we’ll hand that off to John Boehner and his attack Chihuahuas Eric Cantor and Kevin McCarty and they’ll jump right on it. Arf! Arf! Rrrrrr… Arf!
Seriously, I’m not sure I agree. Does the GOP really want to have a part in “improving” ObamaCare, even if they can force the Democrats and Obama into accepting it? I mean Barry indeed drove the car into the ditch. Why should Republicans be burning rubber to the scene to give him a tow?
It is nationalized health care, with or without the GOP’s help. And it’s easy to see the move backfiring on House and Senate conservatives, big time, since they have vowed to repeal the Act. Sorry ’bout that, but here are some loooovely consolation prizes. You know?
Back to Bill Clinton.
You can slim her down and take her to church, buddy, but there’s still the theme song.
Yeah, I think Erick Erickson is a Palin bashing doofus too, but he has a point here. This is just what happens when Republicans try to compromise their principals.
Oh, man: Obamacare ‘glitch girl’ hasn’t enrolled, ‘wasn’t even paid for her trouble’ — And if that’s not embarrassing enough for the BIG O, she follows the RG on Twitter.
