This Week's Agenda: Second Quarter Earnings Reports, Republicans Continue to Plan ACA Repeal, and It's Hot Out

Monday, July 09, 2012

Public companies are releasing their second quarter earnings reports this week. They're a key indicator of how the economy is doing. Meanwhile, Republicans are stilling planning their strategy for repealing Obamacare. Some people in the mid-Atlantic are still waiting for their power to be restored, and in the week ahead the heatwave continues. And if you have DNS changing malware on your computer, you may be without Internet this week.

Obamacare was pushed through Congress on a false prospectus by saying it was not a tax.
Do the American people who get to pay for this deserve to know how their members of Congress (who were not thrown out in 2010) feel about this new TAX on the middle class which the President promised would not happen?

Wasn't Romneycare the epitome of political compromise, fiscal responsibility and popularity in Massachusetts that Obamacare is the very antithesis of in the nation as it leads to one of the highest tax increases in history?

Remember when some petulant members of the media whined and bleated about the ridiculousness of politicians refusing to compromise and work together? Gov. Romney did compromise while working with the redoubtable Ted Kennedy in a deep blue state and now it is being used to deride Romney's leadership.

The US Senate will not dare bring this to a vote just like they didn't vote on a budget in three years.
All the smug chortling in the world cannot obscure the fiscal calamity that Obamacare and 17 trillion in debt can bring to the nation. In November 2012 like in November 2010 the people will vote even if the Democrat controlled US Senate refuses to vote which is their job.
