Off The Table! White House To Boehner: Obamacare Not Part Of Fiscal Cliff Deal.

White House To Boehner: Obamacare Not Part Of Fiscal Cliff Deal

An administration official told The Huffington Post that the president would oppose involving the Affordable Care Act in the negotiations taking place to stave off the so-called "fiscal cliff." A top Senate Democratic aide called the idea "absolutely" a non-starter.

"And they know that, so its counterproductive to even offer it," the aide added.

That was pretty straightforward!

No weasel words at all!

That is what winning gives you the power to do!

The losers don't get to decide what is on the table!

No talk of compromise. Just 'no, don't even mention it'!

This is promising.

Now we are waiting for a similar statement about Social Security and Medicare.

I don't see any reason to delay letting them know not to even mention Social Security in the Deficit discussions since it had nothing to do with the Deficit.

Everyone is waiting for them to dispel the rumors that deals have been made for the Lame Duck Congress.

It's easy to do. Just as it was with the Health Care Bill.

Just make a statement so everyone can relax.


Tell Boehner:

Social Security/Medicare Not Part of Fiscal Cliff Deal! They Are Off The Table!

Anonymous are Criminals, according to the Far Right Wing! Lol!

Googling the reaction on the Far Right to Anonymous' letter is hilarious.

Regardless of what they did or did not do, just the claim from Anonymous that they stopped Karl Rove from stealing Ohio has driven Right Wingers out of their minds.

So where's the crime here or the 'threat to national security'?

1) Right Wingers say they are lying. So if they are lying, it's just a prank. Where is the threat to NS in lying about Karl Rove? Wouldn't that make HIM a threat to NS? Has there ever been a bigger liar than Rove?

2) It's possible they are reacting so viscerally because they secretly suspect it might be true. But wouldn't that make Anon eligible for a Medal of Honor, or in their case a Medal of Freedom?

We have given Medals of Honor to people far less deserving, eg Gen Sanchez! Saving Democracy from election fraud seems like a much more honorable reason to receive a Medal of Honor, or as pointed out in the comments by Stevenleser, a Medal of Freedom assuming Anon are civilians.

It's hilarious watching them try to defend Rove from the accusation of Election Fraud, while at the same time they are furious at him for the total failure of ORCA.

Very clever of Anonymous to force them into such an untenable situation regardless of whether it is true or not.

We know Rove is capable of stealing elections. Which is what makes Anonymous' claims believable. Maybe even to the Far Right which is why they are so angry?

Poor Karl, my heart goes out to him! Lol!

Has he denied it btw? Lol!

Nothing more successful than getting the Far Right all riled up and on the defensive over charges of Election Fraud.

OWS Benefit for the People's Bailout. David Rhees Explains how we can help pay people's debt.

I know Fire or someone else in this forum posted about this incredible project a week or so ago and I thought it was a brilliant idea. Now they are ready to launch it nationwide.

The People's Bailout

Now OWS is launching the ROLLING JUBILEE, a program that has been in development for months. OWS is going to start buying distressed debt (medical bills, student loans, etc.) in order to forgive it. As a test run, we spent $500, which bought $14,000 of distressed debt. We then ERASED THAT DEBT. (If you’re a debt broker, once you own someone’s debt you can do whatever you want with it — traditionally, you hound debtors to their grave trying to collect. We’re playing a different game. A MORE AWESOME GAME.)

This is a simple, powerful way to help folks in need — to free them from heavy debt loads so they can focus on being productive, happy and healthy. As you can see from our test run, the return on investment approaches 30:1. That’s a crazy bargain!

Now, after many consultations with attorneys, the IRS, and our moles in the debt-brokerage world, we are ready to take the Rolling Jubilee program LIVE and NATIONWIDE, buying debt in communities that have been struggling during the recession.

We’re kicking things off with a show called THE PEOPLE’S BAILOUT at Le Poisson Rouge on Thursday, November 15. It will also stream online, like a good ol’-fashioned telethon!

'A Good Old-Fashioned Telethon'! Lol! Is Jerry Lewis available?

Their goal is $50,000 with which they believe they can buy up $1,000,000 worth of debt.

A Bailout For The People By The People

Because the Government only bails out Wall Street!

I love this project as it turns the 'Shock Doctrine' theory on its head. Rather than take advantage of people when they are down, it does the opposite.

Putting the OWS slogan We are unstoppable Another World is Possible into action!

We've lived by the kind of world envisioned by greedy opportunists who take advantage of people's suffering for too long. Most people, as we can see from the volunteers who turn out to help without asking for anything, during every disaster are not like them. Most people care about their fellow human beings. Another world IS possible because most people really are decent and compassionate.

Dems on track to pick up 7 House seats

Democrats went into the election with 193 seats, Republicans had 242

It's been difficult to find total numbers for Congress although it did seem that Dems picked up seats eg, both Mary Bono Mack and her Husband were defeated. In my District, Democrat Julia Brownley has defeated Repub Tony Strickland.

If this is accurate, Dems would now have 200 (maybe 201) seats and Repubs would have 235 (maybe 234).

Dems on track to pick up 7 House seats

Democrats appeared on track to net seven House seats, cutting into Speaker John Boehner’s Republican majority.

As of Wednesday morning, the Associated Press had called 192 seats for Democrats, and had them leading in another eight races that remain uncalled. The AP had called 232 seats for Republicans, and had them leading in two uncalled contests.

Democrats lead in the following races that remain uncalled:

See list at link

Oops, wrong link. This is the link I meant to post:

Dems on track to pick up 7 seats

Some of the races listed in this article have been called. So it looks like Dems did pick up at least 7, maybe 8 seats in Congress.

Which means Dems gained in the House and the Senate and won the WH! Not bad considering how many seats in the Senate were at stake eg and all the money spent on Congress and the WH.
