Dear Editor:

Kevin Foley’s article “…Cruz is outfoxing himself” continues demonizing and character assassinating (D&CA) anyone trying to stop the socialist blitzkrieg that Obama’s mentors Cloward and Piven taught him at Columbia. It looks more and more like he is going by their play book of “top down,” “bottom up,” and “inside out” to overwhelm our economy, create systemic failure, economic crisis, and social chaos with the intent to destroy capitalism and our country within.

The president’s bent on not comprising one iota with the Congress to cut even one dollar of the $16,700,000,000,000 debt or change Obamacare to make it livable shows his “my-way or-the-highway” method of governing. He changed Obamacare for the members of Congress, big business, unions and other sacred cows but refused to do anything for the hard-working American workers who pay the bills.

He and the Senate exert the “top-down pressure.” Foley and his fellow travelers are exerting the “bottom-up pressure” and the liberal media are exerting the “inside-out-pressure.” Thus we are well on our way to having a majority of people who desperately need government handouts for survival and trillions more will be added to the debt.

Our $16.7 trillion credit-card debt represents $52,700 owed by every man, woman, and child in the USA. Another $l,000,000,000,000 added to our credit-card debt will add $3,200 to the $52,700 for a total of $55,900 for every man, woman and child in the USA.

Adding trillions of dollars in interest to this total means our offspring will be paying for our extravagance until the cows come home, but could be just what Cloward, Piven and company ordered.

That's the point!

When the Democrats have lost the late night comedians...

@CobbCoGuy

Did you notice that your original comment had no relationship to what Max Baucus actually said? The train may be running slowly because of high demand but it will only get better, so now you are down to quoting comedians! Don't leave out Joan Rivers and Gilbert Godfriet.

@CobbCoGuy

Anyone with ears is familiar with the Republican talking points. According to "Max Baucus" chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, he said his warning about the law served it's purpose by forcing the White House to deal with concerns about the rollout. "We'll see Oct 1, but I think we're doing a pretty good job", "I think the train is going to keep running, maby not totally on time, but it's going to be pretty efficient".

This isn't the first time Republicans have misrepresented and turned a person's comments to their own advantage. When you have nothing you have to try everything!

So, how's the train running?

Let's see...

Wolf Blitzer, CNN: maybe they should take GOP advice and delay Obamacare (paraphrased).

Ezra Klein, MSNBC: "The Obama administration people failed the people it was trying to help, at least thus far."

Jan Crawford on CBS This Morning: the launch of Obamacare has been "nothing short of disastrous."

Jay Leno: "...Obamacare does cover Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, the result of pressing the computer trying to get through to stupid, uh, Obamacare."

Jon Stewart on The Daily Show: "We're going to do a challenge. I'm going to try and download every movie ever made, and you're gonna try and sign up for Obamacare, and we're gonna see which happens first."

There are reports today, finally, that the number who have actually enrolled is on the order of 50,000, far short of expectations. The CBO is hoping for about 7 million by the end of open enrollment to keep O'care afloat. Think we'll get there?

You got it. Bush racked up $4.9T in eight years and Obama called him out on it during his campaign speech in Fargo, ND, on July 3, 2008. Obama stated, among other things, "That's irresponsible. It's unpatriotic."

Furthermore, on February 23 ,2009, at the Fiscal Responsibility Summit, Obama stated, "today I'm pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office."

But, wait. Obama has added $6T to our debt in just four years - more debt than Bush, in half the time.

Obama is the one who broke his campaign promise and is spending like a drunken' sailor.

One more thing. You are aware of what's happening, or NOT happening, on the Obamacare insurance exchanges, right?

The Obamacare "train wreck" (Max Baucus' words, not mine) is unfolding before our eyes and the American public is waking up to this abomination.

Oh, sorry, don't know who Max is? He's a Democratic Senator from Montana and one of the chief architects of Obamacare.

Where were the deficit hawks when George W. was running up trillions on two unfunded wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and an unfunded gift to the drug companies in the form of Medicare part D? Republicans who fought Social Security and Medicare tooth and nail are now outraged because millions of hard-working Americans are now able to buy affordable health insurance. What Republicans really fear is that like SSI and Medicare Americans will love Obama care and they will be blamed for trying to kill it.

President Obama doesn't negotiate with terrorists. Why should he negotiate with political extortionists like Boehner, Cruz, Paul, Lee and the rest?

The GOP House failed to meet in committee 18 times with their Senate Democratic counterparts to craft a budget bill. They waited until they created another phony crisis to make their demands. The cows haven't come home. The GOP chickens have.

President Obama does in fact negotiate with terrorists. He's talked to Iran and the Taliban and supports the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR.

@Jim Storey: The debt ceiling and the hatred for The Affordable Care act should not be joined at the hip. The GOP has attempted 40 times to repeal The ACA, those efforts failed 40 times. The ACA is the most significant piece of legislation since Civil Rights Act. Every president since Kennedy has talked about this, it's really not about The ACA it's about who was able to get it done. The GOP hates our president because a black, liberal man with a Muslim name

dared to become and REMAIN president. President Obama beat the best the GOP had TWICE and you and the rest of the conservative tribe can't stand it.

Hi Lib

What would it take to get you to at least entertain the thought that conservatives don't like Obama's policies? It's not skin color.

Any chance at all?
