Obama to America — I Win, You Lose

Comments Off

My brother sent me this tonight and I told him I’d post it, because I think it’s very appropriate under the circumstances that Obamacare was passed tonight against the majority of the people’s will and knowing that it is an unpopular bill, they did it anyway.

Obama to America — I Win, You Lose

By Jon Kraushar

“Give me tyranny and give me debt” has replaced “Give me liberty or give me death.”

[Health+Reform+-+Obama+Style.jpg]

With his health care holy war, President Obama is sending America at least 10 messages since taking office:

1. I win; you lose.

2. My will; not the will of the people.

3. Government of Obama, by Obama, for Obama; not government of the people, by the people, for the people.

4. Corrupt House rules and autocracy; not play by the rules and democracy.

5. “I’ll tread on you” now steps on “Don’t tread on me.”

6. “I, the president”; not “We, the People.”

7. “All men are created equal” but I am more equal than others.

8. “The dissent of the president” overrules “the consent of the governed.”

9. “Give me tyranny and give me debt” replaces “Give me liberty or give me death.”

10. “That government is best which governs most” supersedes “That government is best which governs least.”

Breaking: “Fix” Bill May Not Advance In Senate

Senate Democrats Refuse Bi-partisan Meeting With Parliamentarian Until After House Votes

WASHINGTON DC – Senate Democrats have balked at a bi-partisan meeting with the Senate Parliamentarian to discuss a rule violation that could doom the entire House reconciliation proposal.

DON STEWART, McCONNELL SPOKESMAN: “Republicans have been trying to set up a meeting with Senate Democrats since yesterday to discuss this fatal point of order but have been met with nothing but silence. We suspect Democrats are slow walking us so as to have the House vote first. Since Senate Democrats refuse to meet with us and the Parliamentarian, we’ve informed our colleagues in the House that we believe the bill they’re now considering violates the clear language of Section 310g of the Congressional Budget Act, and the entire reconciliation bill is subject to a point of order and rejection in the Senate should it pass the House.”

BACKGROUND

DEMOCRAT LEADERSHIP RELEASE: “The Congressional Budget Office estimate of the health care legislation shows an increase in Social Security revenues… CBO projects that the resulting increase in wages will generate $29 billion in additional FICA contributions to the Social Security Trust Fund.” (“Health Care Reform Update,” Office of Rep. Steny Hoyer, 3/21/10)

CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET ACT: “LIMITATION ON CHANGES TO THE SOCIAL SECURITY ACT.—Notwithstanding any other provision of law, it shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any reconciliation bill or reconciliation resolution reported pursuant to a concurrent resolution on the budget agreed to under section 301 or 304, or a joint resolution pursuant to section 258C of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, or any amendment thereto or conference report thereon, that contains recommendations with respect to the old-age, survivors, and disability insurance program established under title II of the Social Security Act.” (Congressional Budget Act Of 1974, Sec. 310g, P. 31)

Talk About Being Out of Touch and Arrogance to Boot

Tanner to vote ‘no’ on health-care bill

Comments Off

Well as Gomer on Andy Griffith would say, “surprise, surprise, surprise” , but a pleasant one if it stands this way.

Tanner to vote ‘no’ on health-care bill

Rep. John Tanner (D-Tenn.), a 22-year veteran whose vote was assiduously courted by House leaders, said he will again vote “no,” arguing that the compromise package would do too little to rein in the skyrocketing cost of health care.

Tanner was one of the founders of a group of fiscally conservative House Democrats known as Blue Dogs who provided the biggest bloc of “no” votes when the House approved its $1.05 trillion health package in November, and his rejection of the slightly smaller $940 billion compromise package could influence other Blue Dog members.

“There is no question our health-care system needs reform. Since the outset of this national dialog, I have talked with many West and Middle Tennesseans about how we can identify and fix what is broken within our system. Chief among these goals is the long-term reduction in health care costs for families, employers and the government,” Tanner said in a statement. “After thorough and careful review of the legislation, I am unconvinced that the long-term trend of rising health-care costs is adequately addressed and am therefore unable to support the legislation.”

Here’s a petition I got thru the mail from Tennessee Town Hall to request the State of Tennessee to get the “opt out of health care bill” moved out of committee for a vote on the House floor to protect the citizens of Tennessee. (After signing this petition is does ask for a donation, but that is after recording your signature of this petition and is voluntary)

Health Care – As introduced, enacts “Tennessee Health Freedom Act.” – Amends TCA Title 8; Title 56; Title 63; Title 68 and Title 71.

Prayer Vigil Regarding Health Care

Comments Off

This is what we all need to be doing today, praying for America as our so called leaders prepare a historical vote on an unconstitutional and very unpopular health care bill.

Prayer Vigil Regarding Health Care

The vigil, organized by the Christian Defense Coalition and Faith and Action, will be held on Sunday, March 21, at 4:45 P.M.

A news conference will be held at 4:30 P.M. to discuss the response of the pro-life and faith community regarding the outcome of this historic health care vote.

The Christian Defense Coalition has secured the only permit for the Capitol Building while the vote is taking place.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states,

    “Our Christian faith teaches us to care for the poor, reach out to the needy and stand for the defenseless and embrace social justice.  The current health care legislation allows for public funds to be used for abortions which is a gross betrayal of our faith and human rights.

    “As people of faith, we do not have to stand on the sidelines as events unfold around us. Through prayer and fasting we can actually see God change and shape history.

    “We are gathering to pray and ask God to protect America’s children and we are also standing as a prophetic witness against the crushing and diminishing of innocent human life.”

Rev. Rob Schenck, Executive Director of Faith and Action, adds

    “If ever Americans needed to pray, it is now.  This health care legislation will affect every individual and every family.  Our country has always called on God’s help during times of crisis, and this is a crisis for our nation.

    “Prayer is never a last resort; it should always be our first resort.  This prayer meeting during the final vote on health care is the most important thing that will happen at the US Capitol on Sunday afternoon.”
