Obama may use 50-vote tactic on energy, healthcare (Obama is out to Wreak this Country at all cost)

Obama’s budget director said the White House would consider using a Senate procedural tactic so that only 50 votes would be rquired to pass major healthcare and energy reforms.

Peter Orszag, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, said the administration would prefer not to use the budget reconciliation process to push through its package.
But he added: “We have to keep everything on the table.

The Obama blueprint calls for major changes in both energy and healthcare policies that is likely to engender significant opposition from Republicans and business lobbies. The reforms are expect to win widespread support from Democrats and more left-leaning constituencies.

The budget plan calls for a cap on carbon emissions, for example, and projects $645 billion in revenues from an auction of pollution permits that a variety of business groups, including oil companies, large manufacturers and utilities, would have to purchase.

On healthcare, the plan calls for a $634 billion reserve fund to pay for a first step on healthcare reform.

The president would pay for it in large measure by raising taxes on wealthy people and businesses by about $1 trillion over 10 years.

  1. Thanks doctorbulldog, We all had better join into the tea party because Obama is starting to act more like a dictator with the way he’s trying to rule the congress.

  2. Lotta doggies on this blog.

    I’m encouraged by the turnout. It’s a good start. Networking and organization follow. Got to admit that the nutroots — college kids of all ages, people on government time, 60’s fossils — showed the way here.

    Now, if we could just close the giant papier mâché puppet gap!

  3. Obama is more of a threat to our country than Russia, China and Islamist terrorism. In a few short weeks he has shown what we already knew and reinforced why we did not vote for him. The sheep will be eaten one at a time by this wolf in sheep’s clothing. We need to all stand together and keep hammering on this.

  4. Btw, idiot global warming legislation is one area where the Dem leadership cannot count on much of a, uh, followership. Write your congressperson about the cap-and-trade proposal. Scare him.

    Obama Faction Again Shows Contempt fot the Constitution

    Despite this undeniable restriction, the U.S. Senate has voted to give the District of Columbia a vote in the House of Representatives. Imho is this not committing treason?

  6. Ditto. The new regime doesn’t seem to have a whole lot of use for the Constitution. This one will likely be struck down in the courts, though.

  7. Here’s Uh-bama’s quick video explanation of one phase in remaking America, from last year.

    Under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket …

  8. Good news for shiloh1kb, among others (every other American, in fact). NRA plus smart GOP move in the Senate make it risky for House Donks to consider the unconstitutional DC bill. Maybe we’ve seen the end of it for this session.
