GOP Senator Gets Schooled On Obamacare: ‘You Lost The Election, Buddy’



In the middle of a heated discussion about the fiscal showdown, CNN host Soledad O’Brien asked Johnson to give examples of what kind of spending cuts should be on the table. Johnson put the President’s signature health care reform law at the top of his list, saying that it costs more than people realize. “Not going to happen,” Schrum told Johnson, “You lost the election, buddy”:

JOHNSON: Let’s acknowledge that the primary driver of our debt and deficit is going to be health care costs. And we have a whole new entitlement — by the way, we’ve already got a trillion dollars of middle class, middle income tax increases cooked into the books under Obamacare.

SCHRUM: This is fantasy land. It’s like saying Ronald Reagan invented the Apple iPad. Obamacare is not going to be on the table.

JOHNSON: Zero to 610 is the vote total of the last three votes on last two budgets. Zero to 610. Do you think that’s a serious proposal? Here’s the bottom line: President Obama, show us a plan.

SCHRUM: He can’t show you a plan. He gave you a plan, and his plan is not to repeal Obamacare. Not going to happen. You lost the election, buddy.

3. Johnson's own remedy for his employees health care is to hire prison worker who use the tax payer/

govt. health care. So if it's alright for his prison employees to be subsidized with tax dollars, why does he worry about Obama care putting any burden on the deficit?

4. Proof of Gerrymandering

Did you notice?

Whenever there was STATEWIDE or NATIONAL vote tally:

The Democratic Party Won!

Whenever it was a District WITHIN A STATE:

The Republican Party won!

The difference is Gerrymandering...and Ron Johnson knows it and he's scared $hitless!
