The Slaughter Solution to Ramming Through ObamaCare

with 3 comments

Who can forget the Louise Slaughter (D-NY) story at the Blair House health care summit where she regaled the world with an account about a constituent that was forced to wear her dead sister’s dentures.

Who knows if the story is true, but I would like to know if so did Slaughter purchase the lady some new dentures or is the story all she required to fulfill her selfish purpose of forcing ObamaCare on the rest of us.

In an encore performance, Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY), the Democratic chair of the House Rules Committee and ally of Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced The Slaughter Solution.

There is something ominous about the title of her scheme given the slash and burn consequences of the act.

At present, the Democrats don’t have the votes to get ObamaCare legislation through the House or the Senate. Under Slaughter’s strategy, Democratic leaders can overcome this problem by simply “deeming” the Senate bill passed in the House – without an actual vote by members of the House.

They would magically consider the Senate bill passed once the House approves a Corrections Bill that would make changes to the Senate version.

Who are these people?

Nancy Pelosi reveals much by saying, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

Nancy Pelosi defends Charlie Rangel

with 5 comments

After news broke that the House ethics committee plans to admonish  Rep. Charlie Rangel for violating House rules, Speaker Nancy Pelosi immediately came to Rangel’s rescue, once again.

No surprise here since in the past Pelosi has been Rangel’s most prominent defender through his many tax evasion episodes – thieves sticking together and all that.

“I think that every member is entitled to have his day before the ethics committee,” she said. “They have said he did not knowingly violate the rules. And, again, if this were the end of it, that would be one thing. But there’s obviously more to come and we’ll see what happens with that. But every member has that right.”

Pelosi said, “All I saw was the press release where it said he didn’t violate the rules of the House.” She noted that the report said Rangel didn’t know he was violating rules that applied to a lobbyist-funded trip to the Caribbean.

Pelosi pointed out that the ethics committee found that Rangel’s staffers knew corporate money was paying for trips even though Rangel claims he didn’t.

“I think it’s quite a statement to hold members accountable for what their staffs knew,” she said. “I’ll be interested to see how that reverberates.”

Typical Charlie Rangel to go with the twofer “ignorance” and “the staffer did it” defense.

Pelosi failed to mention whether Rangel should stay on as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, but this might be a good time to remind her about the promise of the most ethical administration ever.

“Obviously they have other issues to deal with,” Pelosi said. “We’ll just see what happens next and what comes out of the ethics committee.”

Age of Government

with 2 comments

The main reason for American greatness is freedom. People are the most creative and most productive when freedom flourishes. Now that the Age of Government is upon us we see freedom dramatically eroding. The Marxist majority presently in control is trying to grasp the reins of oppression by destroying what remains of freedom.

People are free when they control their government. When government controls the people, there can be no freedom. Government should only derive their power from the consent of the people.

Lyndon Johnson’s great society was a major failure and the precursor to the arrogance of government. A quick glance at their track record of failure proves that they are not the answer, but the problem.

The Marxist majority in Washington could not care less about what the people want or say. They are convinced that they know best how society should be managed, and they are recklessly determined to manage it the way they want. We are seeing a government of force or as Thomas Jefferson describes, “a government of wolves over sheep.”

President Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are completely ignoring the demands of the people. They scoff at those who say not to enact the currently proposed health-care legislation or to treat terrorists as combatants, not as criminals entitled to constitutional protections. They are Marxist tyrants and there is only one way you can deal with tyrants.

Thomas Jefferson once told his friend, James Madison, “A little rebellion now and then is a good thing.” And yes, a rebellion is rising.

The fires of freedom are being stoked by those who have never been politically active. They believe the U.S. Constitution created the best form of government yet devised and are looking for candidates that share that view.

“Defeat Marxist!” is the battle cry.

Defeat the Marxist oppressors who have infiltrated the halls of power and send them packing. Defeat the Marxist Barack Obama! Defeat the Marxist Nancy Pelosi! Defeat the Marxist Harry Reid! Defeat all those self-serving politicians who stand by their side!

The present ruling party is the friend of oppression and the enemy of freedom. They deserve only to be defeated, stripped of their power and sent back to live in the mess they have created.

House Passes Health Care Bill

with 4 comments

HouseBillPasses

In a tight vote, the House passed its sweeping health bill late Saturday, marking the biggest victory yet for Democrats in their drive to create near-universal health insurance.

The bill passed by a 220-215 margin. It came after House leaders made a surprise last-minute concession that blocks abortion from the new government insurance plan in order to win over wavering Democrats.

Its passage moves Congress closer to the biggest expansion of the social safety net since the Medicare insurance program for the elderly was created in 1965. The measure spends $1.01 trillion over a decade to provide health insurance to an additional 36 million Americans and creates a new public insurance plan to compete with private insurers by 2013. It requires most Americans to carry insurance, creates a new exchange where they can shop for it and gives the lowest earners tax credits to help them pay for it.

ObamaCare is a Trojan Horse

It will allow government to control every aspect of public and private life. The first clue to this designed oppression is if you don’t buy insurance you are threatened with jail.

I submit a more accurate direction is if you are part of a certain group and don’t buy insurance you will go to jail or more likely fined into poverty.

The writing is on the wall – Obama’s Number One goal is “Wealth Redistribution,” not health care. Once that travesty is achieved then it’s game, set and match.

Everyone equally miserable – what a world.

America in Political Rebellion

leave a comment »

johnboehnerHouse Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) says the country is in the midst of a “political rebellion” because his Democratic colleagues are bankrupting America.

He noted that Democrats promised “jobs, jobs, jobs” with their 1,100-page stimulus, but instead America got “spending, spending, spending.”

The House Democrats accused him of being disrespectful for opposing the massive stimulus bill.  This was countered, saying “What’s disrespectful is wasting $800 billion and expecting our kids and grandkids to pay the bills.”

The congressman also attacked the cap-and-trade bill that passed the House, noting it would impose a $1,750 energy tax on Americans and require “Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to have ‘green mortgages.'” On health care, he pointed out that H.R. 3200 would create 51 new agencies, boards, commissions, and mandates.

Boehner also attempted to dispel claims that there is no taxpayer funding of abortion in the legislation, stating that “If you look at the bill in the House, it allows for taxpayer-funded abortions.”

Boehner noted that the TEA parties are a great success because people realize liberals in Washington are “dimming the lights of opportunity for our kids and grandkids.”

Not to be overlooked, the congressman also said he is focused on taking the gavel away from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. That is a worthwhile objective under any circumstance.

Pelosi Demands Apology From Joe Wilson

with 5 comments

joe_wilsonSeptember 9th 2009 is the day of the shout heard across the nation. It was the day when the frustration of Joe Wilson (R-SC) finally reached a boiling point forcing him to shout, “You Lie!” to the president and the political machine that surrounds ObamaCare.

Soon after the speech, Wilson apologized to the President and Vice President for his outburst, which was accepted. That ended it, right? Wrong.

The Madam of the House Queen Pelosi now seeks to humiliate Wilson in front of his colleagues and the nation by making him apologize again and by handing down some punishment from whatever her evil little mind can contrive.

We know from experience with the present Democrat leadership it is never about the apology, but more an excuse to bathe and glorify themselves in power and the joy of watching opponents grovel on their knees.

Personally, I don’t believe Wilson should have apologized to the President and VP for expressing the truth, but as they say what’s done is done. Why? The shout of Joe Wilson is something to be admired. The moment contained truth – a precious and rare commodity not often found in Washington these days.

Will Joe Wilson submit to “The Madam” and apologize again?

This moment Joe Wilson stands tall. He is in a position to seize the moment and rise to greater heights. If he chooses to apologize again, then he will be forgotten and become just another selfish politician that is more worried about his own career than the nation.

Joe Wilson must surely understand that apologizing again just because Madam Pelosi demands it is a straight path to not having a political career. The conservative voters are looking for someone courageous not a mouse hiding behind the lame excuse of the need for civility.

Ask George Bush how much civility he received from Madam Pelosi and the Democrats during his time in office.

Will Joe Wilson (R-SC) continue to stand tall?

You can bet the voters are watching this very closely.

ObamaCare Continues To Go Down in Flames

leave a comment »

Listen and you will hear the growing chant from Obama/Pelosi/Reid as they criticize the Republicans for opposing health care reform. Quite laughable since to pass ObamaCare – no Republicans are required. This time the Democrats must do the dirty deed alone with no cover in sight. Everyone will know exactly where to tag the blame – everything is out in the open.

It’s a Democratic Party show.

The Democrat playbook is open and the most popular play is to blame the Republicans. With overwhelming Democrat majorities in the House and Senate, this attack carries no credibility. The Republicans simply don’t have enough votes to stop anything.

If the truth won’t work then create a lie. The Democrats are claiming that the Republican are using lies and scare tactics to create misconceptions. The plan here is to blame the other party for doing exactly what you are doing. It’s blame the Republicans all over again, but as we already know – not enough votes.

ObamaCare means Democrat leaders want sweeping reform, but complain that it is hard because the forces of the status quo are resisting. Since the Democrats claim to be on the side of reform and if they fail it’s the Republicans fault for stopping them. Again laughable, because there are not enough votes.

Are you beginning to see a pattern?

How can you not laugh when Obama says of the Republicans that they are playing politics? Well gee Mr. President, they are politicians what else would they be playing? The reality is that the number one job of the opposition party is to oppose, especially when the Obama plan is so blatantly destructive to the long-term health of the nation.

It seems that the majority of people finally have an idea of what ObamaCare is all about so the Democrats are finding it decidedly awkward to continue lying to their constituents. It’s not over yet, but there is a good chance that ObamaCare is going down in flames.

I suggest in the mean time that we continue to help fan the flames. Then when cooler heads prevail, look at the existing health care system, keep what works and fix what can be fixed.
