If there is one theme we have seen over and over again It’s how important it is to do things in a bi-partisan way.
The media has made a career of telling the American people how the GOP has to start working across the Aisle to create solutions.
Today the Upton bill allowing people to keep their health insurance plans passed the house with a vote of 261-157 with 39 democrats 18.5% of the Democrat caucus voting yes.
While those 39 votes are far shy of the 100 voters democrat votes that people were talking about before the president’s speech those 39 members of congress who crossed the aisle are 39 more than the number who did so to vote for the initial Obamacare law when it passed.
Now that a bi-partisan solution has passed the house I’m sure the mainstream media will celebrate its passage as a symbol of what can be done when both sides work together and Harry Reid in that same spirit of bi-partisan problem solving will bring it up for a fast vote so the White House can talk about how successful government can be when people of both parties work together to solve problems.
HA AH HA HA AH AH HA HAH AH HAH (SNORT)
I hope none of you were drinking anything when you read that.
Update: Via Gateway pundit the MSM on the Upton bill
NBC called it the “biggest defection of the year.”
Note the use of language here:
When the GOP votes with Democrats it’s “Bipartisan”
When Democrats vote with the GOP they are “Defections”
The White House reiterated its veto threat of a just-passed House bill to allow insurance companies to continue selling insurance plans that don’t meet the minimum requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
DaPaycheck is still stagnant a full $257 shy of the goal and the week is nearly done, if you didn’t ruin your laptop or Ipad by drinking when I said the media would celebrate the bi-partisan Upton bill please consider kicking in to DaTipJar below.
