Here we are our backs are against the wall as our elected officials sell their very souls for a yes vote on health care plan that will increase costs, raise our taxes and jail those that refuse to buy coverage. Our very freedoms are being ushered out by the “ruling class” that can only be compared to that of the Iron Curtain of the Soviet Union some 50 years ago.
The very reason government took up health care reform was to ensure coverage for everyone and reduce costs, this as we see will not happen and this plan will strip untold freedoms from the American people not to mention the destruction of the best health care system in the world.
Senators Ben Nelsen (D-NE), Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and a few others have sold their vote. The federal government will pay Mary Landrieu’s state of Louisiana $300 million dollars for her vote and they will cover Nebraska’s entire bill for Medicaid through 2020.
Harry Reid and the Obama administration are using payola tactics with our money to secure a program that 61% of this nation has expressed intense opposition to. Representatives and senators are promised a “job” somewhere in the administration maybe as an ambassador or maybe a lucrative job with a lobbying firm if they are willing to take a hit for passage of a bill that will surely cost them their jobs in the next election. Making these deals can no longer be considered political, this is outright thievery and these people should be indicted and tried in court.
If I tried doing this with my employer, I would have been fired and jailed.
It appears that all the phone calls, emails, letters and faxes and millions of people showing up in DC last September 12th did not hit a nerve with them. What’s it going to take for them to listen to us? One patriot I saw at the 9/12 rally was carrying a sign that stated “And we came unarmed -- this time” If voting them out if 2010 and 2012 doesn’t work, do you think it could come to this?
