Steve Peters Commentary - #3129 - Killing Obamacare and Replacing With Real Market Based Health Care Reform Key to Debt Crisis and Our Libertes-Rep. Paul Ryan - Politico (2) Biden: The Republicans Certainly Have Acted Like Terrorists Update: Biden Denies - Hot Air

Killing Obamacare and Replacing With Real Market Based Health Care Reform, Key to Debt Crisis and Our Liberties - Paul Ryan - Politico - The debate over raising the statutory debt ceiling has accomplished little but revealed much about the unwillingness of many in Washington to face up to our generation’s most pressing challenges. At the heart of the gridlock is a deep disagreement over the role that out-of-control government spending plays in our current predicament — and nowhere is this disagreement more strongly expressed than in the debate over the government’s role in health care. One approach has been enshrined into law by President Barack Obama’s new health care overhaul, a 2,700-page mistake that has compounded the worst problems in American health care, weakened our economy and accelerated out-of-control government spending. The law’s many restrictions and mandates have jeopardized access to affordable, quality health care for millions of Americans.

Biden: The Republicans Certainly Have Acted Like Terrorists - Update: Biden Denies -  That’s not even the most irritating part of this.

Let those words echo in your ears while you absorb this truth: The Democrats will never, ever agree to the sort of entitlement reform needed to solve a Greece scenario until a Greece scenario is upon us. It’s really that simple.  But, see, you’re the terrorist. “We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry [Rep. Mike] Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.” Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted like terrorists,” according to several sources in the room. Earlier in the day, Biden told Senate Democrats that Republican leaders have “guns to their heads” in trying to negotiate deals…  Read more........ SP: The President called us bitter clingers, holding onto our guns and Bibles when we got in the way of what he wanted. Now the VP calls us terrorists when we want to slow down their ever increasing spending binge. In a closed door meeting the Vice President said, "“This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.” Could you imagine what they would be calling us, if we had been able to actually reduce the amount of government spending. I am sure you would not be able to print it on this site!
