Yes We Can!

Apparently that’s what the Dems were chanting as they crossed the magical 216 number to pass the Health Care Monstrosity. Let me just update the Democrats on what this really means.

  • YES WE CAN! Send you back to your district in 2010.
  • YES WE CAN! Put the Republicans back in charge of Congress, ensuring you never see your bribe pay off promised by Pelosi and her far left leadership.
  • YES WE CAN! Make your benefactor Obama a one term President who will be such political poison by 2010 and 2012 that we won’t be able to do anything to help you.
  • YES WE CAN! Implement a comprehensive market-based overhaul the Dem health care plan, getting the government out of deciding for you, and putting the people back in charge.
  • YES WE CAN! Ensure the Democratic Party locks itself into an ever shrinking handful of urban centers, and finds itself unable to get back to a legislative majority.

I can play this game all night long. Enjoy your victory. It will be a very short one.

  1. The bill, as is, is something I’m less than pleased about. But I wonder how long it will be before amendments are passed to make it even more of a monstrosity. And wow the “victory” speeches have been vomit inducing so far. I guess we will find out how “left” the country is in 2010. Something tells me that people that don’t want to pay $1000 a year for insurance are not going to like being fined, for not spending money that money. I guess all I can do is hope that the bill works exactly as intended(or at least as I was told it would).

  2. Why are you putting your hopes on the republicans? It was GW who took most of our liberties away.

  3. Yes we can conduct criminal investigations, and imprison those who took personal bribes, and who offered personal bribes.

  4. Yes, we can vote them out in the fall, and encourage right, left and center across the country to vote ’em out as well. I’ve always been a voter, always read about the candidates, but this will be the first time I’m going to pick a candidate and actively work for that candidate, and against the incumbents, both congressman and senator. I want a free country for my son, and for every mother’s sons and daughters.

  5. I don’t have much choice right now but to back Republicans and hope they do something. But there’s a lot of public anger out there right now. Lets take that out for a ride and see what it can do.

  6. The avalanche has already started. It is too late for the pebbles to vote. – Kosh

    We’re not going to overturn this monstrosity. The damage is done.

  7. Yall know I hate to be a negative nelly and all, but if we really have the power to “kick them out” in the fall elections, we should have had the power to keep them from being elected to a massive majority in the first place. Apparently we didn’t, or didn’t want it bad enough.


    Don’t assume that the Dems will loose this fall and quit patting yourselves on the damn back because you are so sure of victory. GET TO WORK, make the calls, donate what you can, act like this is an uphill battle because with all the people who are sitting around masturbating about how badly “WE” are gonna kick the Dems asses this fall, IT IS.


    1. Amen, Stuart. There will be plenty of pundits sitting around saying that the Dems will pay. There will be far fewer willing to do anything to actually make sure that happens.

  8. That’s a good message Stuart. But to some degree people want to believe what they are working toward is possible. No one wants to be part of a lost cause.

    The thing about 2008 is, it was a perfect storm for the Democrats. They won’t have that kind of environment again for quite some time. The momentum is back on our side, and certainly that doesn’t mean we get to cruise, but it does mean it’s highly achievable if we do the necessary ground work.

  9. Oh, hell, I’ll continue to vote and demonstrate and encourage where I can, but I can’t help my feeling that the knucklebones are well and truly airborne already.

    We’ve voted our way into this mess. If we can vote our way out again I will be pleasantly surprised, but I’m not holding my breath.

    If voting could change things, it would be illegal…

    1. That’s why it takes more than voting. I believe you have at least 4 choices for the GOP primary in your state in order to reclaim a seat in the Senate.

  10. IIRC, the chant used in the elections was “Can we fix it? Yes we can!”.

    Shows how gullible the Dems are if they’re suckered in by ripping off Bob the Builder.
