Rep. Paul Ryan Firm On Complete Repealing Obamacare

GOP Rep. Paul Ryan talking to CNN’s John King this week about the absolute necessity of repealing the entire ObamaCare law and replacing it with a “patient-centered” health care system. King kept trying to get Ryan to say he would be willing to work on some specific changes to ObamaCare since the repeal bill can’t be passed in the Senate (according to King) and wouldn’t be signed by Obama. But Ryan stood firm, insisting that it would not make sense to “tinker around edges” of a law Republicans believe is bad to the core and needs to be repealed.

Ryan will give the GOP response to the State of the Union Address


Wild Thing's comment.......

I think Ryan should begin by saying “I found the birth certificate.” ....Heh Heh

Ryan can say a lot —and pungently— in three minutes. Plus he is young which is good, fit good-looking Irisher. Some or all of those things might cause some that are not awake to wake the heck up....finally.

Here is what needs to be said about Obama's State of the Union Address.

I hope ALL the Repubs stand firm, along with some Blue Dog Dems, and prevent the funding of obama's Marxist agenda. Then, hopefully, in 2012 we get a conservative president and senate.

I agree, Ryan is a common sense talker with an eloquent touch. He is so easy to listen to, and more importantly, BELIEVABLE!!! Like Beck says: he says what he means, and means what he says.

Still to this day we have a dog and pony show going on in the Nation’s Capital, it’s like they heard the voters but as usual they figure lip service will hold the fort till 2012.. Wrong!! Be Democrat, Republican
Or independent if they do not produce soon out they go..I’m getting a little tired of throw the whole
bill out. As they say you don’t throw the baby out with the bath water..Now the Republicans have
had 2 years to draft a workable bill to show the American people and we have what?? Not one damn
printed page so far, If they were serious they would have it on the front page of every news paper, on
the internet, Radio, Television, Face Book and Twitter. Sorry to say we have none of the above.

Next item on the soap box is till the buddy, buddy relation between the Doctors and the pharmaceutical companies not much will change also the way Doctors charge by treatment has to change, for every treatment they and the Hospitals tac
On a person’s bill the more money they both make.. Get the free loaders off the system. Back in 2004
When I signed up for Social Security I was the only English speaking white person in the waiting room.
There is something very wrong with that picture. Back in California on the route I walked at night there was an Urgent Care facility ,it was always full.. As a joke I named it the Central California Mexican National health care office.. Actually that isn’t funny it’s sad.. Now look at the Idiot running the state…

"companies end not much change" must have gone to school in California...

I’m on a roll today! Medicare is broken no doubt, but like Social Security it can be fixed but the people
Who can fix it have to want to do just that and to my best guess they really don’t want to mess with status quo. Over billing, phantom billing (procedure not done, common) dbl and triple billing. Also
people who don’t qualify sneak in under the radar..Social Security was never meant to be a slush fund
for every Tom Dick and Harry to pilfer for special project and the general fund.. Any money taken out
was to be repaid, come on stop the laughter.. Truth be none if all the hands were cut off stealing money
from the SS Fund it would stand alone with no problem..

In the same vain we have long term unemployed
And generations of people milking the welfare system.. That is stealing from you and me..I feel that
It’s time to bring back the CCC and the WPA.. Our infrastructure is in a total disrepair so let the chronically unemployed and welfare riders go to work rebuilding it.. To hell with the Unions and the ACLU.. At about 8 years of age I saw a oval marker on a side walk with CCC inside the oval I asked my
Dad what was that and he told me about the WPA and the CCC. I have another problem with the Prison
System, to damn many cons’ strolling around the yard when they should be working and no I don’t have
A problem with Chain Gangs.. It’s time for the public to hold the politicians feet to the fire through
Accountability and if that can’t get their attention there is always Impeachment and Recall .

Lettuce not forget that we are facing this mess because for years the GOP had a majority and could have reformed the health care system by allowing cross-state-lines shopping of health care insurance as well as serious tort reform. Our own "conservative" party sat on its hands and acted like a bunch of damned dimocraps, doing NOTHING, all the while, knowing that the other side would try something like Obamacare given the opportunity.

GOP BETTER damn well pay attentinon to the Tea Party and us constituents in the next few years and get some shit done or we will toss the baby out with the bathwater and ramp up a major libertarian movement while the Dimocraps elect another supermajority.

The Republican "leadership" screwed us into this mess in the first place and they better not be asleep at the switch. It has become painfully obvious that there is a large number of retarts called "independents" whose support/opposition to Obama sways and changes with every little breeze in the political air.

Screw Romney, I want Paul Ryan to run for President. We need CONSERVATIVES, not FACES. Romney is a shape-shifting political prostitute.
