Don’t get your hopes up, but Obamacare can still be deep sixed…

The states have it within their power to refuse to a) set up state exchanges and, b) refuse to expand Medicare. If they do so, Obamacare as currently written would become very unstable and require adjustment in the House of Representatives. In the Republican House of Representatives…

There are currently 29 Republicans, 20 Democrats, and 1 Independent holding the office of governor. The Obama Administration has told state officials to decide by Friday, November 16, whether their state will create an exchange. At least seven states have said they will not. So far 15 states have committed to set up exchanges.

    Oops. Deadline extended.

    Here is where we stand. Add Virginia to the exchange opposition list as of today.

    There is a lot of states opposed to Medicare expansion. You have to look closer.

    Could, but won’t!!! Why? Because “He who has the Gold, Rules!” Guess where the holder of the Gold resides??? Yep, you guessed it!!!

    John Boehner has the where-with-all to defund all elements of Obamacare through the appropriations committee and process…but he won’t.

    There are many, many tools US House of Representatives could use to thwart “implementation” of Obamacare,but We The Elite People of Culture of corruption in Washington DC will never, ever stand-up against Obama’s Chicago-style thuggery. Just won’t happen.

    Listen, if Obama and his crony-capitalists (who want Obamacare) used taxpayer money to get him re-elected, what’s going to stop him from further taxing ALL Americans with Obamacare to fund his second term ambitions? HUH??? He who has the Gold, RULES!!! Period.
