Idiot Democrat: It's ‘Not American’ To Remove Individual Mandate for Health Insurance

Image result for rep jim mcdermott is an idiot memeRep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) says removing the federal government's individual mandate to purchase health insurance is “not American.”

McDermott told C-Span’s Washington Journal Tuesday, that Republican efforts to remove the government mandate to purchase health insurance from the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) will not work.

“They want to take out the individual mandate somehow – that we think we should have people just riding on the backs of other people in this country. I don’t think that’s – that’s not American,” McDermott said.

Week ahead: AT&T-Time Warner merger under scrutiny

By Ali Breland

The Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing on AT&T's proposed $85 billion deal to purchase Time Warner.

Lawmakers will examine antitrust concerns over the planned tie-up between wireless giant AT&T and an entertainment powerhouse that includes HBO, CNN and Warner Brothers.

The merger has become a political flash point, attracting critics from both sides of the aisle.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has urged the Justice Department to kill the merger on the grounds that it would harm American consumers.

"This merger represents a gross concentration of power that runs counter to the public good and should be blocked," Sanders wrote in October.  

"The media and telecommunications landscape is changing," he added. "It is important that public policy concerns guide these changes, so that we may preserve our democratic discourse and open competitive markets for speech and commerce."

President-elect Donald Trump also criticized the merger on the campaign trail, saying that he wouldn't approve it if elected.

He characterized it as "an example of the power structure I am fighting."

"It's too much concentration of power in the hands of too few," Trump said.

But since the election, the president-elect's transition team has reportedly suggested otherwise to AT&T. After a meeting with the Trump team, AT&T reportedly expressed confidence they could close the deal.

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson and Time Warner CEO Jeffrey Bewkes will both be testifying at the Wednesday hearing. Also appearing before the panel are Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Landmark Theaters and Magnolia Pictures; Gene Kimmelman, president of Public Knowledge; and Daphna Ziman, the president Cinemoi.

The big merger isn't the only item on lawmakers' minds in the coming week. Congress is looking to quickly pass government funding and head home early for the holidays.

Funding is set to expire on Dec. 9th and lawmakers are looking at a continuing resolution running through March or April.

The last time lawmakers moved a continuing resolution in September, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) led a fight to include language that would block the Obama administration from handing off oversight of the internet to an international body.

Cruz's effort failed, and the transition process for managing internet domains has already begun. But many tech watchers will be closely eyeing the spending bill for any efforts to undercut the transition.

There could also be a deal on Jessica Rosenworcel's confirmation to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the coming week.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told Politico that they're "very close" to an agreement with Republicans who have stalled her Rosenworcel's nomination to a second term as a commissioner. Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John Thune (R-S.D.) has also expressed hopes for a deal.

Rosenworcel, a Dem, needs to be reconfirmed by the end of the year to remain on the panel.

Hanging over the prospects for a deal is FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler's future plans.

Republicans want Wheeler to step down at the end of the Obama administration. Wheeler though has been coy on his plans. At the FCC's last open meeting he told reporters he hasn't yet set a departure date. GOP lawmakers would be less likely to allow Rosenworcel's confirmation if they know Wheeler intends to stay on.

So Megan Kelly will be working for AT&T doing phone commercials. . . . Maybe she will replace SERIUS . . . :) 

McDermott is just another democrat going against the election and Mr. Trump, we can expect to see more back stabbing of Mr. Trump in the future, and we must continue to support the president elect. One thing we do know, government and obumacare are one in the same, at least for now. I do not believe obamacare was ever more than a way for control of the people and making government larger, however it failed just as obuma has failed, and his legacy will be what we have known all along,he is a Loser and will go down in history as such. What is really sad is the fact that he failed because his agenda had nothing to do with America, other then to destroy it.

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

Trump's wiretap tweets raise risk of impeachment http://bv.ms/2mY1ueX  via @BV

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
