Susie Sampson reviews the State of the Union address, and reveals the Republican strategy that Cathy McMorris Rodgers referenced in her State of the Union rebuttal when she said…”Republicans have plans.” But first, one of McMorris-Rodger’s key issues was Obamacare, and McMorris-Rodger’s speech took the scourge of Obamacare down to a personal level with ‘Bette’ from Spokane, Washington. We were told that Bette is an example of how the unrealistic and expensive Obamacare isn’t working. Paul Krugman of the NY Times shines a light on the Obamacare victim,Bette. A bit of research reveals that Bette was comparing her previous policy with one of the pricier alternatives her insurance company was offering – and she refused to look for cheaper alternatives on the Washington insurance exchange, declaring, “I wouldn’t go on that Obama website.” At least they are remaining open-minded!
Also in McMorris-Rodger’s speech was a promise. “Our plan is one that dreams big for everyone and turns its back on no one.” This promise is a bit vague. However, if past actions are any indicator, Susie was right when she said their ‘plan’ is to (continue to) “oppose anything Obama proposes.”
If you don’t know Susie, she’s our liberal mole in the Tea Party. Actually, she’s done this report tongue-in-cheek for some time, and yet many conservatives believe she is serious!
The following is her report on the SOTU address.
State of the Union time. And let’s just say it was a big ‘ol win for the GOP. No matter that Obama spoke well. John Boehner’s tan and his sour face really won the show. And what’s all this about a living wage? As long as you’re livin’ and you have a job, that’s a livin’ wage. Seems to me like people should just be happy with tryin’ to pick themselves up by their boot straps, even if there’s no hope. Again, a win for the GOP because we have plans. We’re just not going to tell anyone what they are.
