Speaking of holding feet to the fire …

You might have a real good chance to give it a try REAL SOON. My old comrade-in-arms Terry Jeffrey, is offering up details suggesting that GOP leaders on Capitol Hill REALLY didn’t understand what we said with our votes last Tuesday: Will the congressional Republican…

But, but, but BARRY won’t let us throw out ObamaCare!

This is *rich.*  We’re bombarded with ads from Republican candidates telling us incumbent Democrat senators did a bad thing by voting FOR ObamaCare.  (And we agree.) So, does that mean a GOP majority on Capitol Hill will repeal ObamaCare?   (*crickets*) Hmmm.  One more time…

GOP putting pedal to the metal on O-Care sellout?

It’s arguable that the Republican electoral success in 2010  had its origins in voter anger over the passage of ObamaCare.  Republicans won governor seats, state legislative majorities, and a majority in the US House.  It was pretty clear what the voters were looking for. Fast…
