BHO: Sinking like a rock

Today’s Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll shows that a scant 28% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way Barack Obama is performing his role as President.

Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove —  giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -12. That’s the lowest rating yet recorded for Obama. Not a good indicator only 6 months into his presidency.

In an irrefutable vote of no confidence, forty-nine percent (49%) now say that America’s best days have come and gone. Just 38% believe they are still to come.  A mere thirty-four percent (34%) say the country is heading in the right direction.

    I’ve changed my mind on Obama-Care. I think the country could benefit provided the Health Care bill carries with it one more amendment when it passes. Perhaps we should get on board and restore Barack’s waning self confidence. Here’s my amendment:

    Upon the enactment of this health-care plan, hereinafter called THE BILL and for as long as any part of THE BILL is still in effect, a one-for-one “award” in the House of Representatives shall exist to offset the death of any person who dies as a result of delayed or denied health care for any reason under THE BILL. The “award” shall be: One Congressman shall be incarcerated for the remainder of his life at a maximum security mental institution, under a new identity, denied any visitation and exposed daily to the general population, said Congressman to be chosen by lottery from among all Congressmen whose district and whose party affiliation, at the time of passage of THE BILL, are or were both the same as any of those Congressmen voting FOR enactment of THE BILL.

    A one-for-ten “award” shall exist in the Senate, one Senator qualified, chosen and awarded the same as in the House shall offset the deaths of each ten persons to die due to delayed or denied care under THE BILL and not already offset by a Congressman. Retirement or change of Party shall not exempt an otherwise qualified Congressman or Senator. Once in the lottery, he or she will remain there until declared a “winner”.

    In order that the House not bear the full burden of this article until fully depleted, the penalty shall be applied alternately to the Senate as follows: For every ten Congressional “winners”, one Senate “winner” shall be drawn for the next ten persons who die under the above conditions. This Article shall remain in force in perpetuity until either THE BILL is repealed in its entirety or the supply of qualified Congressmen and Senators is depleted. After such time as the House and Senate lotteries may be both fully depleted this Article shall remain in force and resume enforcement whenever a qualifying Congressman or Senator is elected as long as any part of THE BILL remains in force.

    George T:
    I do believe you are on to something! How do we get onboard with this? It sounds like something the average Anerican citizen voter could warm up to in a hurry.

    George T- Wow…I’m dizzy! That was FANTASTIC! Count me in on this, with 2 adendumns- 1)-The lottery list shal begin with the biggest offenders. Pelosi, Reid, Waxman, Durbin from the Senate, then Lautenberg, etc. 2)-When the full & complete supply of eligable legislators is depleated, the lottery list shall shift without interruption, to the Executive Branch, beginning with Secretary Napolitano cabinet members etc., all the way up to the Offender in Chief.

    I’d be happy with forcing Congress to have the same healthcare coverage as everyone else if they push this through.

    But great ideas, George, nonetheless.

    Guess the brewskies with his “buddies” didn’t help BHO with his numbers. Tsk, tsk.

    George, you are making way too much sense, therefore, it could never fly in Congress!
