The following panicked email was just sent by the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee:
How do we know it’s time for Republicans to move on? Because according to CBS News, they’ve now spent $50 million in taxpayer money on 33 separate votes to repeal the President’s health care law – with absolutely nothing to show for it.
Just think about what that $50 million was wasted on: 33 votes to take health insurance away from 30 million Americans. To re-open the Medicare prescription drug “donut hole” and bring back the ugly days of discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions.
Vote after vote, lawsuit after lawsuit, Republicans have spent two straight years now trying to gut, defund, or completely repeal every piece of the President’s health care law.
Meanwhile, we haven’t gotten a single vote for urgent priorities like the President’s American jobs Act, which would create up to 2 million new jobs but has been languishing for almost a year.
Every vote, and every penny Republicans spend trying to undermine health care reform is a penny wasted. Please join us in sending that message.

p.s. Republican state legislators are also undermining health care reform by blocking key provisions of it their states. You can help elect Democratic legislators who support affordable heath care for all Americans by contributing $10 or more to the DLCC.
Certainly sounds dire, doesn’t it? And quite fiscally irresponsible of those mean old hypocritical Republicans.
Except one thing – the idea that there have been 33 votes to repeal Obamacare is bovine sourced fertilizer. That hasn’t stopped CBS, the Washington Post and other major news outlets from carrying the water of the Democrats and helping them to spread the lies. There have been exactly two votes to repeal. TWO.
Lee Doren put it in perspective in a fiery rebuke:
Today’s lesson, boys and girls, is the same lesson as always: never, ever, ever, ever, ever, EVER believe the liberal media.
