Apparently, the "Debate" is Over

It was just 2 days ago that the President's own Budget Director proclaimed that whether or not abortion coverage would be included in ObamaCare "will be part of the debate".

Barely 2 days later, the President has now declared that debate to be over:
"The time for talk is through." -- President Obama, talking to liberal bloggers on a conference call Monday night.

The Democratic bills in the House and Senate are a thousand pages long. They're still changing as committees try to mark them up, or as they mark up other versions of health insurance legislation. There's huge uncertainty about how lots of provisions in the bills and under consideration would work--OMB Director Orzsag and HHS Secretary Sibelius couldn't answer straightforward questions on Fox News Sunday and Meet the Press. Nothing goes into effect in any case until 2013--except the tax provisions, which would begin in 2011. Yet President Obama wants everyone to stop debating and deliberating, and act now--because he and he alone has decided "now is the time to go ahead and act."

For the President two days is debate. After all, he spoke and we listened.

I TOLD YOU SO! I just won a bet that in just six months, when people found out who Obama really was, i.e. some tribal, wannabe HNIC, who has never done anything, never held a job, we have no idea if he really was born in the US...or why the only country he visited before being elected was Pakistan, and that he was a Manchurean candidate...that in six months...he would either be "impeached" (wanna bet on that one?)...or be "isolated and contained" by his own party...as one of the most hideous, bizarre, Fascist Left Wing neoHitler's to ever be elected president. He is not intelligent...he is merely "clever"...and we will kick this unAmerican socialist out of this country before the end of his term.

As a Roman Catholic...you will be appalled, that if Obama's Rationed health care was in place....they would pull the plug on thousands and thousands of brain-dead Maria Shiavo's. I told you so. But...you all wanted Change...but you never asked: Change to What? Fascist, Experimental Health Care?

You "told" who? Who wanted change?

Me? I don't think so. Because if you'd been reading my blog long enough to have "told" me anything, you'd know that I had no delusions about Obama from the very beginning.

But I will say that I'm certainly getting an interesting set of commenters these days.
