There are train wrecks and then there are train wrecks. With the recent train wreck in New York, commentators can compare the real with the imaginary. In a real train wreck, people are injured and some die. In an imaginary train wreck like Obamacare, lives are saved. That is the real difference and one would hope that detractors of the Affordable Care Act might learn from events that happen right under their noses.
While passing the Bentley hospitality lodge at Pebble Beach, I noticed this stunning raspberry colored Continental GTC W12 on display. Normally Bentley Continentals are common faire in wealthy areas, especially Pebble Beach, but the color of this one, and the beautiful setting drew me in. Enjoy the photos.
The dumbest reason to repeal Obamacare, at least so far, came out of the mouth of Utah’s own Mike Lee. We must repeal because it became law before some of us were members of Congress and could not vote on it. Using that reasoning, if it is reasoning, then whenever the membership of Congress changes, then all laws must be voted upon again. That would certainly keep our do-nothing Congress busy.
Repeal, repeal, repeal, ad infinitum
Failure, failure, failure, ad infinitum.
Obamcare is here to stay
Members of Congress must enroll
Boehner did enroll to demonstrate
How difficult it was enroll
Failure again–too easy by far
Saved money, but not face
John Boehner and allies point to failures
But never acknowledge successes.
GOP want this President to fail
They do all they can
To make it happen
Sorry, guys and girls of the Grand Old Party
Another failure–better luck next time.
How little could a do-nothing Congress do
If a do-nothing Congress did nothing?
How little would a do-nothing Congress do
If a do-nothing Congress would do nothing?
How little should a do-nothing Congress do
If a do-nothing Congress were paid to do nothing?
This Congress, now meeting occasionally in Washington, DC, is the gold standard in do-nothing Congresses. Having shut down the government for two weeks, Congress apparently has decided that it need not act as though the government has re-opened. If Congress cannot destroy our system of government, it will paralyze it as an alternative. Time to replace the obstructionists.
