No the Japanese have not attacked Pearl Harbor again.
And this was not a sneak attack.
But it was a call to War.
As predicted, the Democrat Socialists sold the American People down the toilet 219-212. That 3 more than they needed.
And guess who caved at the last second, Pro-Life Democrats.
They were promised to issue an executive order (aka BRIBE) from the President saying that the provisions of the now Health Care Reform Law that let the government pay fro abortions will not happen.
Not an actual signed order, just a promise of one.
And this President is a very trustworthy guy. 😦
Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) the “leader” of the now defunct ‘pro-life’ Democrats is now Judas.
“Perhaps Mr. Stupak and his fellow pro-life Democrats forget that President Obama’s first Executive Order was the repeal of the Mexico City Policy to allow for international funding of abortion.”— Phylis Schlafly of the Eagle Forum
To pay for the changes, the legislation includes more than $400 billion in higher taxes over a decade and cuts more than $500 billion from planned payments to hospitals, nursing homes, hospices and other providers that treat Medicare patients. (AP)
So bend over and reach deep. The enema you’re going to get is going to be a joyous one, Comrade. 😦
And just to give you some more happy news: This from Bloomberg
President Obama’s budget proposal would create bigger deficits every year of the next decade, with the gaps totaling $1.2 trillion more than his administration projects, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said this month. Publicly held debt will zoom to $20.3 trillion, or 90 percent of gross domestic product, by 2020, the CBO forecast.
So anyone for Ramen Noodles??
That maybe all we have left soon.
But at least we’ll have government Health Care!
When asked what Obama was doing during the vote, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs: “Mostly basketball.” (CBS)
He was watching the NCAA.
Well, you have to have your priorities… 😦
It also seems, according to the Senate Republicans website that the Senate Democrats stalled a “bi-partisan” meeting with the Parliamentarian until after the vote, that way it didn’t stall their quest for the Holy Grail.
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.”
That means the Senate bill, which everyone in the House seems to universally hate, will be the law of the land.
And the Partisan bloodbath is probably not over.
But remember, this was the President who was going to be the Post-Partisan, Unifier.
You just did know he was going to be Unified against The American People and any who opposed his will.
So the Reconciliation Fix-it fight is now on.
“Immediately after receiving the final reconciliation bill language, Senate Republican staff was ready and willing to meet with Senate Democratic staff and the Senate Parliamentarian to discuss the fact that the House reconciliation bill may be brought down by the 310(g) point of order in the Senate. Senate Democrats are mysteriously unavailable until after the House votes on the health care bill tonight. The Senate Democrats appear to be pushing off this meeting so that House Democrats will remain in the dark about what is likely to happen to the reconciliation bill on which many have staked their careers in Congress. House Democrats should be alarmed by this latest development, since the survival of the reconciliation bill is clearly at risk in the Senate.”
If Republicans can get the parliamentarian to agree with them even once, whatever ultimately passes the Senate will have to go back to the House.
And Democrats in the House quietly admit that its very likely they will have to vote again on the reconciliation fixes at some point down the road.
So the House Democratic Leadership was potentially Lying to it’s members, especially ‘Judas’ Stupak, that they’re being played.
Admittedly, you have to get the Parliamentarian to agree first, but it show how far the Democrats will go to pass it.
But even then, we still have Government run Health Care.
It doesn’t do it to everyone just yet.
But by the end of the decade it will be.
You can trust the Democrats on that.
or Maybe sooner…
As you know, I am a strong supporter of a public option, and I included the HELP Committee’s public option in the bill I brought to the senate floor last year. I was disappointed when it became clear that we did not have the votes to keep it.
Nevertheless, like you, I remain committed to pursuing the public option. While I believe that the legislation we are considering does much to provide affordable coverage to millions of Americans and curb insurance company abuses, I also believe that the public option would provide additional competition to make insurance even more affordable. As we have discussed, I will work to ensure that we are able to vote on the public option in the coming months. — Sen Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Because we all know by now, you can trust a Democrat lawmaker to keep his or her word, now can’t we. 🙂
And we have to get the Illegals Amnesty so they can be put on the government doles and registered as Democrats so we can fix the messy democratic process.
And then we just need to fix all those greedy, consumer-driven, energy pigs and purveyors of evil CO2 (you know, electricity, oil, cars, people).
We’ll whip them into shape for their own good.
So Welcome to the new Obama’s Amerika, Comrade.
Enjoy your “freedoms”.
