CA Rep Introducing New Legislation to add “Robust Public Option”

Even as I speak, Bernard Goldberg is on The O’Reilly Factor decrying the “hard right’s” “hysteria” about the Obamacare bill and Obama’s designs on the country. I like Bernie Goldberg, but he clearly is behind the learning curve, (as is O’Reilly) on what the country got itself into when it elected Obama.

The Obamacare bill, after the public option was removed in order to get it through the Senate, was  designed to be  a “foot in the door” to single payer. I’m only surprised that this Dem Socialist couldn’t even wait until the bill was signed before she introduced this:

A leader of the House liberals’ caucus said Monday she’ll introduce new legislation to revive the public option.

Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), the co-chairwoman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said she plans to unveil legislation to add the government-run option to the national healthcare exchange established by legislation President Barack Obama is to sign tomorrow.

“We will introduce a robust public option bill on the very day the president signs the reconciliation bill into law,” Woolsey said Monday during an interview on MSNBC.

The public insurance option had been a part of the healthcare legislation first approved by the House in November, but Senate Democratic leaders were forced to abandon the provision after it became clear that they wouldn’t be able to get all 60 Democrats (at the time) to sign onto legislation containing that provision.

On the one hand, since Scott brown was elected to the Senate, this should be impossible to pass.

But then, the Dems feel emboldened now, and they know their days are numbered.

Are you, too, a member of “the hard right”? Then join Doug Ross on his Impeach and Convict tour  2011:


Bill Whittle outdoes himself. If you read nothing else today, you must read this: FREE WILL AND DESTINY

I’ll give you  a taste, but you simply must go read it all:

I thought I might need to try my small part to cheer people up and calm them down, but for once I have underestimated the American people.  People, by and large, seem not only calm but absolutely determined. Everywhere I have looked this morning the reaction seems to be more or less the same: a nation of steely-eyed missile men. These Marxist bastards have no idea what is coming for them. No idea.

Laugh while you can, Monkey Boys.

What passed last night is a long way from the single-payer, socialist dream its supporters secretly — and not so secretly — really want. As a matter of fact, it’s hard to imagine a bill more perfectly constructed to tee off everyone: Conservatives hate it for it’s regulation, cost and explosive growth of government; liberals hate it because it forces people (so far, so good!) to buy premiums form the hated private insurance companies. (What the–!)

So, in terms of limiting the practical and immediate damage, holding it here — just holding it — is important and essential.  Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have an IQ of 130 — that would be combined between the three of them and you can get to 150 if you throw in Biden — and so they actually believe that a few months from now, they will be able to add single-payer to this goat rodeo, this bloodbath, this circus of incompetence conducted by this museum-grade confederacy of dunces. It got them a bill that requires people to pay for private insurance — which I am, of course, utterly opposed to on every level — but that is way short of single payer and we MUST hold the line here and not an inch further until reinforcements arrive in January. And they will. In numbers that will astonish and amaze the most optimistic among us.

  2. I cannot sleep. While we are licking our wounds from the weekend’s travesty, they are now going to bring out the public option (and then amnesty, etc.). I am a stay-at-home mother and, by most accounts, a rational, reasonable person. It is clear to me that our own government is against us. What’s worse is that they are antagonizing us, provoking us. It seems as if they are trying to deliberately push us over the brink — and they are ready for it. They have already planted the seeds, with the DHS declaring that it is “concerned” about right-wing groups. There is only so much that reasonable people can take, and if things get ugly, the gov’t will then have a “perfect” excuse to impose martial law on us. I pray that we can all stand firm until the November elections but fear that, the elections — if they happen at all — will be far too late to undo the damage.


  3. Bernie Goldberg did one legitimately noteworthy thing in his life, and that was the writing of the best-selling book “Bias.” While not the first book to expose the entrenched leftist bias of the establishment news media, it certainly became the most celebrated book of its type.

    However, since then, Goldberg has become a hypocrite, prattling on and on about the need for civility in our public discourse while frequently employing, uh, colorful metaphors (as Lt. Cdr. Spock would say) to get cheap laughs. For example, his description of Dan Rather’s CBS News entourage as Rather’s “prison bitches.” Classy, Bernie. Real classy.

    Make sure to cash those royalty checks from “Bias,” and to go on pretending to be a conservative, Bernie.

  5. Time for us to quit the tea parties etc and silently work behind the scenes, so as to not arouse groups like the DHS. What we have been doing thus far hasn’t worked, time to step it up a notch. I hear Menard’s has a sale on pitchforks going on.


  6. I, and a lot of other taxpayers, would dearly like to give Rep. Lyn Woolsey (D-Bellevue Mental Hospital) a robust kick in the ass.
