President Obama will huddle with House and Senate Democrats on Wednesday to discuss their fight against Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare in the new Congress.

The meeting will take place in the Capitol Visitor Center’s auditorium and last for about an hour, according to a congressional aide.

Stung by a November election that handed Republicans the keys to health reform, Democrats are brainstorming ways to push back against GOP plans to use a fast-track budget tool to gut the Affordable Care Act in the first months of the new Congress.

Sen. Bernard Sanders, Vermont independent, and Democratic congressional leaders have called for nationwide rallies during a “day of action” on Jan. 15 to decry the repeal and potential plans to replace Medicare’s open-ended entitlement for seniors with a premium-support model favored by Speaker Paul D. Ryan.

White House guidance provided to Congress said Mr. Obama will thank Democrats during the meeting — first reported by Politico — for helping him drive the uninsured rate to historic lows. He will also discuss ways to strengthen the law.

Bernie Sanders, Democrats call for rallies to protest GOP health plans

‘Day of Action’ would coincide with MLK Day, early action in Congress

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Sen. Bernard Sanders and Democratic leaders on Wednesday called for nationwide rallies as part of a “day of action” this month to protest GOP plans to dismantle Obamacare and revamp the Medicare program for seniors.

Mr. Sanders, the Vermont independent who emerged as a progressive hero during the 2016 campaign, warned in a “dear colleague” letter that Republicans in charge of both chambers will use a fast-track budget tool to gut the Affordable Care Act, imperiling coverage for millions.

He also said the GOP could pursue a “voucherlike” system for Medicare, a nod to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan’s longstanding plan to replace the program’s open-ended entitlement with a “premium-support” model.

The letter pinpoints Sunday, Jan. 15 — the day before Martin Luther King Day — as a day to publicly resist the GOP’s ideas.

“Rallies will be held around the country to vigorously oppose the Republican plan to end Medicare as we know it and throw our health care system into chaos,” Mr. Sanders wrote, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and incoming Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer of New York.


This is the same old game plan that cost the dem's to loose elections all a cross America for the last eight years, they cant understand that America will never be in favor of a Socialist rule and no matter how big of a mess they make Americans will know that they are to blame and become even more insignificant then they are now !

Bernie is a very sick individual to take such a stand.

He can rally his ilk all he wants.

The people have spoken -- we do not want the barryscare program the democraps single handedly shoved down our throats.

They truly are tone deaf in every way.

The GOP has the House, the Senate, along with a strong Republican president that has an aggressive mandate to implement for the people. He won this election based of that very fact. There should be absolutely NO excuses. Period! We cannot allow these anti-American Socialists to go on with protecting the unconstitutional debacle known as Obamacare.

The Trump administration mustn't stop with that ridiculous law either. Let the DEMs scream and rant all they want. They've been legally neutered and we must let them know that wonderful fact every day, through the non-stop reversals of their ideological driven agenda.

Remember, we've endured eight miserable years of Obama running unchecked, with no real hope in sight.

Now is the perfect time, with unprecedented power, to correct every single policy that has caused millions of Americans enormous damage and NEVER look back. This precious period of time may never happen again and it must not be squandered over personal feelings regarding a selfish legacy. Obama governed against the will of the people and now it's payback time. Obama, How does it feel to be irrelevant? 

Screw Obama and his destructive Marxist legacy!

Dont underestimate the underhandedness of these low-life bums,Communists and IslamoFascists.

OScumBag is building his private army.  Oil your weapons.

Vicious, evil, vile.  He hates America and the dem/socialist/communists who agree with him are no better.

Pres Obama can now go back to the job he has experience in "COMMUNITY ORGANIZER"  funded by George Soros.

Bernie is the perfect figure head of the progressive"communist" party. Thank God the people woke up to the hijacking of our nation. Repeal and replace. My premium was raised 150 percent. I had to search for affordable insurance on my own. I wouldn't take a tax credit if I was starving.

The American Action Forum finds that the cost of 2016 benchmark Silver plans will increase by an average of 27 percent in 2017 for a 27-year-old non-smoker. While the lowest cost Bronze plan will increase by 22 percent in 2017.

To Hell with that Lame Duck .Repeal all of it . we the People don't want the Government  In our health care at all !!.

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.


The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
