“Well, we’ve had our brief moment of celebration, because the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare is, in fact, unconstitutional. It’s what many of us argued all along," begins Republican Richard Mourdock in ObamaCare3: Revenge of Barack the Jedi.Obamacare survived it's encounter with the Supreme Court with John Roberts voting for it's Constitutionality. Roberts ruled that the Healthcare Mandate is a tax,
"If an individual does not maintain health insurance, the only consequence is that he must make an additional payment to the IRS when he pays his taxes," Roberts wrote. He adds that this means "the mandate is not a legal command to buy insurance. Rather, it makes going without insurance just another thing the government taxes."So, now that everyone in America has to pay a Healthcare coverage "tax" perhaps the GOP will stop repeating their bullshit lie that 45% or 47& or 49% pay no taxes whatsoever!1!11! Oh who am I kidding with out their constant stream of bullshit lies Republicans would only be left with their rank racism.
However, upholding Obamacare is what many Republicans wanted because now they get to run on how evil it is and how imperative it is Americans elect Republicans to repeal Obamacare. As Richard Mourdock said in Obamacare 2: The Republicans Strike Back,
"Well, the Supreme Court has done what none of us really thought could happen. They’ve ruled Obamacare constitutional. Now, the fight has moved from the courts to the United States Congress. You can be sure starting January of 2013, if Republicans control the House and the Senate, we will be voting to repeal Obamacare once and for all."Of course, just like their Jobs, Jobs, Jobs refrain from 2010, this is a thin sheen designed to dupe Americans into voting Republicans into office. Once Republicans are elected they'll simply ignore the lies they told to win office and set upon their true agenda of obliterating the middle class and subjugating the American people to Corporate Bondage.
Besides, the ACA victory the other big news made yesterday was Fortune magazine journalists telling Americans the actual truth about Fast & Furious instead of stenographing the out-right shameless lies of Conservatives.
Quite simply, there's a fundamental misconception at the heart of the Fast and Furious scandal. Nobody disputes that suspected straw purchasers under surveillance by the ATF repeatedly bought guns that eventually fell into criminal hands. Issa and others charge that the ATF intentionally allowed guns to walk as an operational tactic. But five law-enforcement agents directly involved in Fast and Furious tell Fortune that the ATF had no such tactic. They insist they never purposefully allowed guns to be illegally trafficked. Just the opposite: They say they seized weapons whenever they could but were hamstrung by prosecutors and weak laws, which stymied them at every turn.Now the problem, of course, is this does not fit the preconceived conclusions every conservative reached when they first saw President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. So, thankfully because they have the Alternate Conservative Reality to retreat to, they need not concern themself with the truth but have millions of other ignorant bigots to confirm they are Right!
Indeed, a six-month Fortune investigation reveals that the public case alleging that Voth and his colleagues walked guns is replete with distortions, errors, partial truths, and even some outright lies. Fortune reviewed more than 2,000 pages of confidential ATF documents and interviewed 39 people, including seven law-enforcement agents with direct knowledge of the case. Several, including Voth, are speaking out for the first time.
Ah, and then there is always Illegal Immigration! As their lies about the fake Fast & Furious scandal unravel the Republicans always simply retreat to their other card, Racism.
The right-wingers have been proclaiming President Obama's failure to secure the border an impeachable offense for years. Now, that would be the Southern Border because that's where the illegal immigrants come from...
But, President Obama declared the United States Government would no longer be forcibly arresting and evicting children who through no criminal act of their own happened to be born of illegal immigrants.
Well, that ticked off the Republicans,
"Now if it’s bad enough and if shenanigans involved in it, then of course impeachment is always a possibility." - Senator John Kyl of Arizona,Kyl has been in Congress since 1987 and as with all worthless Republicans he "inherited" his position from his daddy. Kyl was born in 1942 any guesses what he did in the 1960's? Why he was a lawyer and lobbyist who never served a day in the military.
Of course, Senator Kyl is simply a scumbag liar when it comes to Immigration reform because his Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007 provided for a path to citizenship and thus most conservatives blasted it as an "Amnesty Bill" rewarding illegals "crimes".
But, the true goal of the bill was to create a revolving but permanent underclass of worker who could be hired legally and proudly by American companies, but who would receive no benefits and be easily replaceable when they earned their citizenship.
And, of course, Kyl's 2007 bill contained the DREAM Act. Which Senator Kyl supported until the dastardly Barack Obama declared this month he would stop deporting young illegal immigrants who match the criteria previously proposed under the DREAM ACT.
Because, once President Obama stepped into the White House, Republicans made the conscious and vocal declaration that they would undermine the country in every way possible if it meant keeping him a one-term President.
In 2010 Kyl made up this quote and relayed to an Arizona Tea Party gathering President Obama had told him during an private meeting in the White House,
"If we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform”."The president didn't say that," Bill Burton said of Kyl's account. "Senator Kyl knows the president didn't say that."
But, what can you expect from Senator John Kyl? Everything he says is for effect and as his staff admitted in 2011 are "not intended to be a factual statement."
So, Senator Kyl by thy own petard shall you be hoisted, with all the immigration "shenanigans involved" you and your whole Party of Punk Ass Bitches needs to be impeached.
