Today there is a vote to repeal Obamacare.
Will Democrat congressmen from Michigan join the common sense crusade to repeal the miserable legislation that has proven to be too costly for families and business, or will they double down on the progressive stupidity that brought it about? Will Gary Peters, who plans on advancing his career with a US Senate run stand with working families who are finding their hours reduced, and premiums exploding?
Today, Michigan Congressman and 2014 Senate candidate Gary Peters will have another opportunity to vote against the train wreck, formerly known as ObamaCare.
For years, Gary Peters has been a "proud", staunch supporter of the President's costly health care law. But, a report by the non-partisan Society of Actuaries shows that ObamaCare will increase the costs of medical claims in Michigan by more than 25% and by an average of 32% nationally. Personally, I have seen 70% increase already. It has forced our business to make other changes.
Recall the words of ObamaCare Architect, Sen. Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus
"I just see a huge train wreck coming down." -And surprisingly even THIS by Sen Harry Reid:
"unless we implement this properly it's going to be a train wreck, and I agree with [Baucus]."And Schmuck Shumer?:
"ObamaCare could raise premiums"Of course Senate Democrats have a solution: More taxpayer dollars are needed to stop the oncoming health care disaster. Yeah, ObamaCare already needs a 'taxpayer bailout'.
Remember when..."The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act--ObamaCare--was sold to Americans as the solution to the problems plaguing our nation's healthcare system."?

I lived around D.C. pretty much from birth until I was 31 either in MD or VA. I worked in on around D.C. for over 18 years. So I am well aware of the issues in play here. "We The People" should be demanding an amendment to the Constitution giving D.C. two Senators and two Congressman, Point and Blank! However, what the Liberal Senate is currently doing is taking what has been a smaller national issue, moving it to the front so they can secure a sure "Left" vote.
With the Left Senate so close to being filibuster proof this will secure it for them. But what is really going on, that no one is catching, is that they will be making the tie breaking Vice President vote meaningless. The Founding Fathers set up the Senate so it would always have an even number of votes so the "President of The Senate" would always have a role. With all our Vice Presidents lately giving up their Constitutional responsibilities as President of the Senate, there was only one remaining role the Vice President still had, their tie breaking vote. With that vote gone why do we need a Vice President.
Although the current Vice President is "Left", the liberal Senate could not guaranty this always to be true. Now they have secured that the tie vote will always be "Left".
As Always Thanks for being involved, Many Blessings, Shane
