GOP Plan To Repeal And ObamaCare!

The 2014 mid-term election have passed into US history.The GOP took won a majority in  the US Senate and joins with a Majority of corporatist legislators in the House.  Fun times for the GOP!

At the top of the post election GOP agenda...approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline. The Grand Ol Party must payback the Kochs who stand to gain $100 billion for development of tar sands land they own in Canada.  And, it is time to give the Kochs a gift in repealing a laws that is against their vision of America. A law once repealed will return US healthcare to the days of insurance executive pay opulence, denied coverage, higher premiums for women. 

Alas, some in the party are coming to the rescue of millions who previous either had no medical coverage or who had coverage that only provide assistance with catastrophic illness disease or emergencies.

Let's take a look at a GOP plan.

Seven Key Republicans Do Not Find Value In Palin's Fox News Impeachment Talk

As I think of the latest Sarah Palin traipse around the airways (with first appearance on Fox New's Hannity show), my mind fixates on the GOP/RNC decision to attach Palin to the flawed 2008 GOP ticket.

The Grand Ol Party literally created a monster (in more ways than one). The monster trod across the land reaping havoc and horror as the days passed and until roving bands of voters, citizens brought the horror to an end.   

The imagery is stark and the visual entertain even today.

There is little entertainment in Fox New's reviving the monster. Alas, Fox News is not about news it is about entertainment for a very specific audience. An audience that is not comprised of some members of Congress.

ABC News reports on seven key Republicans who do not agree with Palin's insanity. while I hold nothing he has to say in any level of credible, Dick Cheney told Jake Tapper, CNN, he believes Palin's comments are counter productive.

Sarah Palin penned an op-ed last week calling for the impeachment of President Obama., the former Republican vice presidential candidate said, “Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ‘no mas.’” 
Her comments have drawn criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike. 
“She wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate,” Attorney General Eric Holder told ABC News’ Pierre Thomas on “This Week.” “She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why,” he added. 
And it’s not just Obama loyalists who disagree with Palin. ABC News rounded up a list of prominent Republicans who say the president should not be impeached. 
1. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Virginia, House Judiciary Committee Chair“We are not working on or drawing up articles of impeachment,” Goodlatte told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Sunday on “This Week.” “The Constitution is very clear as to what constitutes grounds for impeachment of the President of the United States. He has not committed the kind of criminal acts that call for that.” 
2. Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-OhioSarah Palin called Speaker Boehner’s efforts to sue the president “bringing a lawsuit to a gunfight.” In response to a reporter’s question regarding Palin’s remarks, Boehner simply reiterated, “I disagree.” 
When a reporter asked Boehner’s if a lawsuit implied an impeachable offense, the Speaker of the House replied, “I think this is a battle between the two branches of government. Others can make a determination about whether it’s impeachable or not. I believe that the path that we’re going is the right one to defend our institution against the encroachment from the executive branch and to preserve the Constitution of our country as it was written and as it was intended.” 
“I believe that the path we’re going down is the correct one,” Boehner added.

It is really sad the GOP cannot shut its Monster!
