Today’s Water Cooler lineup of off the beaten path online stories are: Senator Jim DeMint to introduce bill to repeal Obamacare, Randy Neugebauer: I yelled ‘baby killer’, Democrats have won a battle, not the war.
- The Freedom Post: Senator Jim DeMint to introduce bill to repeal Obamacare
“This bill is unconstitutional and it cannot be fixed. It must be repealed,” said Senator DeMint. “The battle for health care freedom is not over and I will introduce legislation this week to repeal this health care takeover.
- Politico: Randy Neugebauer: I yelled ‘baby killer’
“In the heat and emotion of the debate, I exclaimed the phrase ‘it’s a baby killer’ in reference to the agreement reached by the Democratic leadership. While I remain heartbroken over the passage of this bill and the tragic consequences it will have for the unborn, I deeply regret that my actions were mistakenly interpreted as a direct reference to Congressman Stupak himself.”
National Review: Democrats have won a battle, not the war
If your heart didn’t sink when the Senate bill went over the top in the House last night and Democrats began chanting “Yes, we can” on the floor, you’re either not a conservative or inured to all disappointment. Conservatives will be temped to despair in the weeks ahead, as the magnitude of this defeat and its potential consequences sink in. But there are good reasons not to despair.
