Maybe I, or better yet, my cat, should run for Michigan's US Senate race. After the (deserved) beat-down Peters is receiving, and expected to receive up until election day I think my fat little furry friend could win on policy alone.
Americans For Prosperity is reminding Michiganians that Gary Peters was one of those congress critters who lack common sense, doesn't know how to read, do math or learn from history. The Michigan chapter of Americans for Prosperity, the nation's foremost grassroots advocate for health care freedom, launched a million-dollar multimedia campaign on Tuesday, aimed at holding Rep. Gary Peters accountable for his support of the ObamaCare mess.
Television, radio and online ads launch across the state today and will run for three weeks at a cost of roughly $1 million. The television component will run on both broadcast and cable. The TV Ad and other data are ..

Seriously, ANYONE could win Michigan's US Senate seat being vacated by Carl Levin.
At least if Gary Peters is all the Democrat party has to offer. The RNC has targeted a number of politicians who parroted the Obama lie:"You can keep it .." in the run up to passage of the ACA. They will be running a series of ads pointing out the many times each of these folks opened their pieholes to mislead constituents in this regard. The Michigan ads will initially be radio spots like this one (modified for Peter's name used instead) saying:
"So what's your New Year's resolution? Here's one you can keep. Resolve to keep [Senator/Representative] honest in 2014.And its based in fact.
From the Ivory Tower in 2009:
" .. Illegal immigrants won't be covered, Peters said. Medicare benefits won't change, and will include no co-pays for preventative care and a reduction in drug costs. And Congress isn't being treated any differently than anyone else who has employer-covered insurance, Peters said.You know, it seems as if those might just have been 'talking points' to keep the natives from getting too restless about the takeover of a quarter of the economy. No, really!
Though this is very serious, It still reminds me of a joke.
Go below the fold and I will pass it along.

One of the major reasons used for justifying medicaid expansion in Michigan was that too many were using the hospital emergency rooms, rather than using a regular doctor.
If fact, during the building expansion debate in 2013, Michigan's Governor Rick Snyder claimed as much:
"Currently, Snyder says we are funding the Emergency room visits of those without coverage through our increased insurance fees. He believes it would save money to send them to doctors opposed to the Emergency room.Huh, I guess he was wrong.
At least as is being reported in the Detroit News (and in a million other [surprised] outlets) he was:
" A new study has found that people enrolled recently in Medicaid went to the emergency room 40 percent more frequently than others, often seeking help for conditions that could be treated less expensively in a doctor's office or an urgent care clinic."And there you go.
And it wasn't as if there was no warning. It wasn't as if there was no one talking about an increase in Medicaid use, coupled with a reduction of Doctors to handle such things.

The twelve days of Christmas run, traditionally, from Christmas Day to Epiphany Eve (January 5th), providing Christians with the opportunity to focus their worship and study on the birth of the Christchild and the salvation he came to win for us. The twelve days of ObamaCare? Not so much.
The Republican National Committee's Research Department released a twelve-part series on the overall damage that our president's "signature achievement" has done, and continues to do, to the domestic economy. Not by coincidence, the research pieces were timed to release one per day during the run-up to the president leaving for his Christmas holiday on December 20th. An executive summary, with links to each of the research articles, follows the break.

As it turns out, the RNC has made another Subtle statement with the Lie of the year trophies.
Because of liberal policies, manufacturing over time has had to find other havens where makers of such products as TROPHIES can do so competitively. The Dems have consistently advocated higher taxes, and unrealistic workplace rules that hamstring domestic manufacturing to the point of closure or relocation.
Fewer makers of wealth and even fewer workers yet.
How appropriate that the awards offered to those Democrats are from those places that carry so much of our debt.
I found this story funny, though the subject is far from it.
Apparently the RNC has awarded a number of vulnerable Dems a special award for their participation in the American catastrophe known as Obamacare.
" Rebecca Coffman, a press assistant at the RNC .. holding the trophy outside Senator Mary Landrieu's office before presenting it to one of her staffers. "We'd like to present Senator Landrieu with the Lie of the Year award on behalf of the Republican National Committee," she said.At least he took it. No sore losers there, right?
Gary Peters, who will probably lose to whomever runs for US Senate in 2014 received the award above for his part in bringing forward the end to the US constitution.

Sorry Charlie, err, Joshua, however, besides same last names, you two do have the same stench.
Last week, following offensive comments about LGBT
Hate speech my ass, signed Wolverine. Furthermore, if the Ann Arbor Nerd wasn't such a flaming Progressive surrounding himself in Obama funding secrecy, his answer for Medicaid Expansion would have also been, "I'm not getting into that."
Every stupid thing on The Left has become an ongoing distraction from reality.
