There’s not a lot the “R” were smart about in taking advantage of the “D”‘s incompetence (socialism, anyone?). But I think they may have hit the target on this one
.Mind you, I would very much love for the “D”s to reform Wall Street, and not just cosmetically, for laughs as they are fixing to.
But one has to see the beauty in using Romneycare as the sign of Pinocchio
Senate Republicans are planning an “aggressive” effort to paint Democrats’ claims about their Wall Street reform bill as not credible in light of the healthcare debate.
The GOP plans an effort to highlight claims made by Democrats in Congress and President Barack Obama about their health reform law that would seem to be undercut by reports showing higher premiums and reduced employer coverage that Republicans say are consequences of the legislation.
In the light of the new unpleasant unintended consequences revealed daily, who can blame them?
Republicans point to reports that health services employers will have to cut jobs due to taxes under the new healthcare law, or congressional analysis that suggest middle-class taxpayers might face a higher tax burden.
“In light of that, Senate Republicans plan to mount an aggressive effort to point out the large number of demonstrably false claims that Democrats made about their health bill,” the aide said.
And of course, this being done for the purpose of protecting Wall Street from any regulation, guess who will have their “aggressive effort” well funded?
Considering the betrayal, deceit and plain incompetence that went into this, it would be a karmic result. “D” should lose their credibility over what they trumpet as Obama’s historical and unprecedented signature achievement.
Especially when their servile stand to insurers abuse is absurdly ridiculous
But, not to worry. Ms. Sebellius put the hammer down with her sternly worded letter – going so far as to use the word “urge.”
