Will Republicans Resign As Well?


Will Republicans Resign As Well?
Laurence M. Vance
October 20, 2013

Senator Ted Cruz wants HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius to resign over Obamacare. Shouldn't it be the Democratic members who created Obamacare who should resign? Although I loathe Sebelius and Obamacare, isn't trying to implement Obamacare her job as the secretary of HHS? And if Democratic members of Congress should resign because of Obamacare, then shouldn't Republican members of Congress resign over Bushcare, the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003. There are some Republicans still in Congress who voted for Bushcare in 2003. Shouldn't they resign and then call on Democrats to resign?

And as I recently pointed out, why do Republicans object to Obamacare when they support something worse–Medicare? Hey, why doesn't Cruz resign? He is a big supporter of Medicare and a big rejecter of medical freedom.

(Strange that many who say that Sebelius shouldn't do her job would also say that soldiers should do theirs.)

Wow. They're almost all true!

Re: [PresidentBarakObama] *? 2 ALL: WILL DEMOCRATS CAVE ON SOCIAL SECURITY CUTS?*

I thought the surplus was spent in the 80s, that is why it is a problem to have baby boomers retire ... they paid for their parents and elders, but now there are less people paying into the system, so the spent surplus is not here to offset the bump in collectors ... seems like the whole system REALLY is a ponzi scheme!!!

Hi Team!
 
*? 2 ALL:
 
WILL DEMOCRATS CAVE ON SOCIAL SECURITY CUTS?*
 

 
Zach Carter reports on the Huffington Post:
 
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) on Sunday opened the door to Social Security cuts as part of a budget deal with congressional Republicans. But Durbin pushed back against GOP calls for entitlement cuts as the negotiating price to curb or extinguish the economically damaging sequester cuts.

"If this is the bargain that the Republicans are now pushing for, that we have to cut Medicare to avoid cuts at the Department of Defense, they need to take a step back," Durbin said on "Fox News Sunday."

Congress is currently negotiating a new budget, with a December deadline. The talks were mandated by last week's deal to raise the debt ceiling and end the government shutdown.

Also speaking on "Fox News Sunday," Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) explicitly offered up trading some of the short-term cuts mandated by the Budget Control Act, known as the sequester, for long-term Social Security and Medicare cuts. He argued that Republicans had the tactical advantage on such an exchange.

"If you're in a divided government and you're arguing against the law, you're at a disadvantage," Blunt said, noting the failed GOP effort to defund Obamacare that resulted in a government shutdown. "The Budget Control Act is the only thing we've found that actually controls spending."

Blunt said that if Democrats aren't willing to negotiate over "entitlement savings versus some additional spending," to ease the sequester, then Democrats will have to live with the sequester cuts.

Durbin said that Republicans had to put tax revenue on the table to get entitlement cuts. Fox host Chris Wallace noted that Durbin has previously supported entitlement cuts, and asked why Republicans should have to give up tax increases to get something that many Democrats support. President Barack Obama has repeatedly endorsed Social Security cuts as part of budget deals, and Durbin acknowledged that he did support Social Security reforms.

"Social Security is gonna run out of money in 20 years," Durbin said. "The Baby Boom generation is gonna blow away our future. We don't wanna see that happen."

Social Security will not run out of money in 20 years. The program currently enjoys a surplus of more than $2 trillion...

Do do think Democrats will cave on Social Security cuts? Why or why not?
