Rangel falsely claims no Republicans voted for Social Security, sidetracks ObamaCare hearingOctober 29, 2013 at 12:25 pm #8065
Rangle never lets the facts get in the way of a speech. He never let the law get in the way of what he wanted to do either. Do a little research on his tax problems and this guy is on the tax writing committee.October 29, 2013 at 6:55 pm #8097
Charles Rangel seems to me many times when he speaks to be an idiot, lacking knowledge on many issues. But when you look at where he comes from and those he represents, he is a genius among idiots. They only know what He and the media tells them, and given their circumstances most hate the rich seemingly aristocratic Republicans, who only have their own interest in mind. So many these days believe the Government should take care of them. Take care of them before it takes care of so many other countries. Spending so money on so many things they do not understand. They believe the Government is the answer or could be the answer to their problems. But just as in the housing crises, Affordable Housing Act, Government meddling in an attempt to help them caused many more problems than it solved. The Affordable Health Care Act is no different than so many other things the Government has gotten involve in. They do not understand the Government, Governed, and given direction by the Constitution has no mandate to provide a home, health care, a living for them. It is to allow us to freely fail or prosper on our own merits. You can give many a chance to do better, but like any animal will do as any animal do. I feel for those who have no real home, no food, no job, we could all be put in the same situation, but when given a hand up, it is what we do with that chance. Since the dawn of man there have been rich and poor, more poor than rich. The poor making due with what they had, working to feed themselves or die hungry. There will always those who will take advantage of the weaker. In day long ago they took it of or went to the extreme of doing some horrible things to those who wronged them. We have laws that make things a little more civilized. Our Constitution and laws are to provide everyone with a civilized way to resolve problems and differences. But not a way of life. I heard Rangel remarks on the news this morning, many republicans were against SS & Medicare that is true, but for many differing reasons many voted for it, unlike the AHCA which was pushed through while the Dem’s still had and had gained control over both houses and the Executive branch. Obama signed the bill into law, but he did not write it, if he had anything to do with it at all in the first place, and then as now knows little about it, or how it works. Obama is the President, but many others come up with ideas to further His and the Dem’s agenda. Depending on how the idea works out, he takes credit for or knows nothing about it til he hears it on the news. But looking back in history none of this is really that new. From the Federalist and the Democratic Republican parties of so long ago in Jeffersons and Jacksons time, Partisanship has been a part of Politics. The President can cause more problems or resolve problems depending on how he uses it.
Rangel was born in Harlem in New York City. He earned a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star for his service in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, where he led a group of soldiers out of a deadly Chinese Army encirclement during the Battle of Kunu-ri in 1950. Rangel graduated from New York University in 1957, and St. John’s University School of Law in 1960. He then worked as a private lawyer, Assistant U.S. Attorney, and legal counsel during the early-mid-1960s. He served two terms in the New York State Assembly, from 1967 to 1971, and then defeated long-time incumbent Congressman Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. in a primary challenge on his way to being elected to the House of RepresentativesOctober 29, 2013 at 7:08 pm #8098
►… written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it.
►… passed by a Senate that hasn’t read it, but exempts themselves from it.
►… signed by a President who also hasn’t read it, and smokes.
►… administered by a Treasury Chief who didn’t pay his taxes.
►… overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese.
►… and financed by a country that’s broke.
What could possibly go wrong?

Obama raising money off HealthCare.gov problems
The troubled HealthCare.gov website may be having problems pulling in applicants for ObamaCare, but that’s not stopping President Obama’s political arm from pulling in cash off the dysfunctional site.
Through his political group Organizing for Action, Obama sent a videotaped message to supporters in an email Tuesday evening.
In the video, the president said “the website has not worked as smoothly as it was supposed to,” but “we’re gonna get it fixed.” As he’s said before, the president added: “The Affordable Care Act is much more than a website.”
The email, though, also appealed for donations, saying “the other side will spend millions to maintain the status quo.”
Supporters who click past Obama’s video message are then taken to a donation page that says: “The other side has already spent a whopping $400 million in anti-Obamacare TV ads. We don’t have to beat that, but we need to have the resources to fight back.”
The group has been organizing a multitude of events and social media campaigns around the health care law’s implementation. OFA said those efforts will continue, but the group isn’t adjusting its strategy in response to the website’s issues.
The campaign-style effort to defend the law comes as the administration, in Washington, tries to soothe both insurance companies and Democratic allies about the site’s operation.
Health insurance executives are scheduled for a meeting at the White House on Wednesday. It will include Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough.
On Wednesday, the administration also sent Mike Hash, who runs the health reform office at Health and Human Services, to Capitol Hill to brief lawmakers on the law’s implementation. An invitation to the breakfast meeting obtained by The Associated Press says it’s restricted to members of Congress.
But only Democrats were invited to that session, prompting protest from House Speaker John Boehner, whose spokesman called it a “snub” and said the administration should brief House Republicans, too, in the name of transparency and accountability. Joanne Peters, a spokeswoman for HHS, said officials would be happy to honor additional briefing requests.
Obama has turned to longtime adviser Jeffrey Zients to provide management advice to help fix the system. Zients, a former acting director of the Office of Management and Budget and a veteran management consultant, will be on a short-term assignment at HHS before he’s due to take over as director of Obama’s National Economic Council next year.
Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden and top White House officials held a call with business leaders Tuesday about the health law and other issues. Business Forward, a trade group friendly to the White House, said the administration asked the group to invite leaders to hear directly from Biden.October 30, 2013 at 11:18 am #8163
Well at least the so called administration “LEADERS” are apologizing for the mess. That reeaaallly means allot!!!
