  • Congress’ Secret Plan to Pass Obamacare - CONFIRMED

    Leaders in the House and Senate have a plan to pass President Barack Obama’s sweeping health care plan by Thanksgiving without any significant participation by the American public. CNS News has confirmed the details in our September 22nd titled “Passing a Shell of A Bill: Congress’ Secret Plan to Ram Through Health Care Reform.” Nicholas Ballasy reports “a senior aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told CNSNews.com that it is ‘likely’ that Reid will use H.R. 1586—a bill passed by the House in March to impose a 90-percent tax on bonuses paid to employees of certain bailed-out financial institutions—as a ‘shell’ for enacting the final version of the Senate’s health care bill, which Reid is responsible for crafting.”

    This story confirms the four part scenario that would railroad the bill through the Senate using a very unusual closed door procedure to craft the bill with no input from the American people.

    The four stage plan to pass Obamacare has been publicly confirmed and is ready to be implemented. The following is a comprehensive update:

    Step One: “The Senate Finance Committee will finish work on the marking up of Senator Max Baucus’ (D-MT) conceptual framework for legislation by this Friday.” Progress on this had been stalled and the bill was not passed by the end of last week. Foxnews.com is reporting that the Congressional Budget Office score of the bill will be released later today and a high score may further stall progress on the Committee’s Vapor Bill.  Senate Finance Committee’s progress on passing something out of committee – INCOMPLETE.

    Step Two: Next, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will take the final product of the Senate Finance Committee and merge it with the product of the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee. CNSnews.com has confirmed that “the actual final text of the legislation will be determined by Reid himself, who will consolidate the legislation approved by the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and the still-unapproved legislation from the Senate Finance Committee. Reid will be able to draft and insert textual language that was not expressly approved by either committee.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will write the final version of Obamacare to be considered in the Senate with no input from the American people. This is an extremely complex procedure that will not be done in public, or in the form of a hearing, or a public conference committee, and only Senator Harry Reid, some other Senators chosen by Reid and Obama Administration officials will be allowed to read the bill before the Senate debate starts. Merger of the bills – IN PROGRESS.

    Step Three: Senator Reid will then move to proceed to H.R. 1586, a bill to impose a tax on bonuses received by certain TARP recipients. A senior aid to Senate Majority Leader Ried has confirmed that he will move to proceed to Senate Calendar Number 36, H.R. 1586, or another House passed tax measure, so the Senate can avoid the Constitutional mandate that tax bills originate in the House. Proceed to tax shell of a bill – CONFIRMED.

    Step Four: This scenario would most likely be implemented after the Massachusetts state legislature gives Governor Deval Patrick the power to appoint a new Senator and that Senator is seated by the Senate. The Senate swore in new Massachusetts Senator Paul Kirk on September 25th. Change Law of Massachusetts to allow for interim Senator – COMPLETE.

    The final step in this plan is for the House to take up Obama care, without amending the legislation, and then sending that bill directly to the President for his signature. Matt Cover at CNSnews.com reports “House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) won’t rule out having the House vote on the Senate health-care bill without making any changes in it, which would allow the bill to go directly to President Barack Obama without having to pass through a House-Senate conference committee and another round of votes in the House and Senate–and a longer period of public scrutiny of what the text of the proposed law actually says.” This scenario is in the process of being implemented and, if successful, it will result in Obamacare being on the President’s desk in time for Thansgiving with minimal participation of the American public.

    The San Francisco Examiner published an editorial today that exposed the fact that the American people can’t see the bill. “When then-Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama promised not to sign major legislation until it had been posted on the Internet for public reading at least five days, trusting voters took him at his word. Now they know better. Not only is the actual language of what is likely to become the main legislative vehicle for Obama’s signature health care reform not available on the Internet, it hasn’t been given to members of the key Senate committees or the Congressional Budget Office.” The procedure being used, in addition to the exclusion of the American people from the process, should be of grave concern to all who want to participate in democracy and have a say in Congress’ health care reforms that will touch 1/6th of the American economy.

    1. Shirley Sclafani says:

      I can only pray that your information to the people of the United States will help them wake up to what is happening in Congress. The betrayal is so incredible and it just keeps getting worse.

      I want my country and my freedom back!

    2. Mia says:

      They can pass whatever they want, but there will be consequences when it comes to re-elections…unless they're planning a coup or something…and I wouldn't be surprised.

    3. Freedomof Speech, Te says:

      These people are more dangerous than organized crime because they write and

      re-write the laws that affect all of us.

      When they have to resort to disgusting tactics like this, with no transparency, with no hearings, with no one reading and understanding the complete legislation,and tricking the American people – what would you call it?

      Then they have the audacity, after they legislatively emasculate us, of saying trite things like,

      "We were within the law. We did not "break" the law. We'll fine you and put you in jail for breaking the law." They have a lot of nerve writing ANY law if this is how it is done.

      In fact, this is nothing but a mockery of the legislative process and the eventual abuse of the Taxpayers Money.

      Most Americans are sick of this continual high-stakes game-playing at our expense.

    4. John Meacham, Califo says:

      Again I say make congress operate by Robert's Rules of Order. I have chaired many a meeting under Roberts and been called out about admendments not pertaining to the motion on the floor at this time. This would stop the practice of inserting important laws into a motion in favor of Motherhood and Apple Pie.

    5. Les, Rock Hill, SC says:

      How is this democracy? Not letting the public have a chance to read the bill and let their senators and congressmen know what they think of it is not what I call the "American Way" it sounds more like the "Soviet Way".

      I cannot wait untill my so called representative comes up for reelection.

    6. Jen, Raleigh, NC says:

      And thus will commence serious backlash from the American public. We will see actions and efforts never before seen or heard of in our great land.

      When they can vote themselves the wealth of their people they cease to become a democracy.

    7. NG, Denver CO says:

      This article is very misleading.

      The health care bills have been debated openly and publicly for months now. Make your criticism on policy, not straw-man intentionally vague procedural claims.

    8. JM, OREGON says:

      They are merely hoping that the majority of us will be comfortable being misled as long as we are led. They think we are ignorant. Americans have pride and there will be consequences. This is a democracy people!

    9. Terry, South Carolin says:

      I for one am not surprised that they are going to try that, after all they did the same with TARP, and the Stimulous package. As for what NG in Denver said, the seante version is not out for the public to read, so there has been no debate yet. It all boils down to " WE THE PEOPLE" need to get off our back sides and call, write, visit your politicians and voice your disapproval of this crap. Something of this magantude must go before the people of this great country before those idiots in DC vote on it. Otherwise I think it is time to take them out of office THIS YEAR !!!

    10. Phil, NC says:

      The people who represent us are bought and paid for. They are all just puppets. The only way to turn this around, it to cut the strings of the puppet masters by replacing all the puppets with those that have no strings!

    11. Eric, Florida says:

      Your headline is wrong. It should say “Congress’ Bold Plan to Shred the Constitution.”

      This is about circumventing Article 1 Section 7 of the Constitution. The Senate can’t originate this legislation. The Constitution says that revenue measures must originate in the House. The Senate is only allowed to make amendments.

      So, the Senate has to start with a bill that has already passed the house, and that had revenue provisions. H.R.1586 is a good fit.

      They did this last year with the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act. This strategy usurps the authority of the House. The Senate is doing things that the Constitution forbids them to do.

      The question is, will Queen Nancy Pelosi completely roll over and cede all of the House’s power to the Senate? Or will Pelosi and the House stand up and defend their Constitutional powers and enforce Constitutional limits on the Senate? I’m holding my breath.

    12. Mike, Easley, SC. says:

      Step #6

      The American public takes to the streets of Washington after being betrayed and removes the very people that betrayed them. The removal will either be very orderly or very messy. They just thought that the Town Halls and the Tea Parties seemed ugly try a stunt like this and I will actually get off my fat butt and help out!!

    13. Ben Israel, Florida says:

      " That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness."

      'We The People' MUST join together and kick these conniving morons out of office!

      We MUST NEVER give up!

      Our Congress is nothing more than a glorified ACORN office.

      Have we sat on our butts too long?

      Wake UP!!

      We must also take down the media that is in Nobama's back pocket.

      Did any one see the video on CNN where the kids sang about health care?

      Our government is nothing but the beginnings of fascism.

      Control the kids. Control the schools. Control the media. Control our business. Control what we say and do. Control every coton-picken aspect of our lives.

      OH NO, I must be a racist for saying that.

    20. Michelle, NC says:

      Yup, this is the same way they passed the TARP. Get ready to bend over AGAIN.

    21. Stephanie, Troy, MI says:

      This procedure is the same unconstitutional procedure they used to pass the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act (EESA) back in November to give Hank Paulson his ‘$700 Billion Bazooka.’ The American people said ‘NO’ at the top of their lungs to that at the time, yet it passed anyway because they used this ‘backdoor’ procedure. It has now set a devastating precedent and Congress is about to use it again.

      The millions of people who called, wrote and faxed, the millions of people who screamed at Tea Parties across the nation that they did not want government-run health care, are about to be thrown under the bus. The Constitution is now dead – until or unless every single American rises up, pulls all their money out of the bank gets their ass to Washington DC and shuts that city down. We have all of our money and that of our children and many generations into the future having been pledged to the insolvent banks that are the very institutions who have paid for more than half of Congress to be in their seats. We have fraud in every level of government from local municipalities right on up to Washington DC. Now you will be forced to have government run healthcare, and they will run it the way THEY want to.

      Our troops in the Middle East are giving their lives to protect a document that WE HERE AT HOME ARE ABOUT TO LET BE DESTROYED! How many more rights and freedoms will YOU allow them to strip away? Washington DC must be shut down now. We are about to lose our country entirely.

We will have to look back at our children one day and appoligize for the lost minded soles that made all this unwanted change and hope happen. We did not vote him in . but we will be the ones to feel the brunt of his America hating, appologizing, not wanting to follow the constitution Presidency.

    24. Chuck, South Carolin says:

      We got the government they voted for!

      If this happens the only thing left to do is make sure everyone that votes for this bill is NOT RE=ELECTED!!!!

      It's the only message you can send. The trouble with this is everyone seems to forget at election time and puts them back in office.

    25. Scott says:

      NG in Denver is one of the many mislead. Nothing in this entire administration has been debated openly. Obama the canidate promised many things, transparancy was one of his big sells. One more unkept promise. How in the world did this clown get elected?

Maybe we should start with the House of Represenatives and work our way up to Senators. Every single congressman that votes for this Obamacare bill should be voted out or shot, whichever is easiest.Give me liberty or give me death is upon us once again.

    37. JH, California says:

      Our government is not ours if they can get away with this. How do we force them to respect the 60 plus percent of the public who are against their various health care plans? Can we vote to cancel their plan and force them to be on the same plan with us?

      How do we undue it if they pass the bill? We need to organize to throw the bums out…and that includes the President and his czars!

      Their arrogance is unbelievable.

We need to stop all of this taxation without representation. We had a tea party over that…..I think it is time for all Americans to yell at the top of their voices and say NO MORE!!!

      It is amazing to watch the intentional destruction of our country all under the false premise that this "plan" is compassionate because it covers the 47 million (another false premise)that have no insurance. This is tyranny!! Any republican that signs on to this bill should resign. I will not give 1 dime to the RNC unless the republican party opposes this. Yes, health care needs reform but we need tort reform, we need to remove barriers that government has put there to begin with. We need to open up competition across state lines with regard to insurance. The American people are smart enough to see through this and this is why the democratic party has to resort to these tactics. However, we were not smart enough because we did elect this group to run the country and there is a price to be paid in more ways than one!!!

It's time to send the "career" politicians a message by way of the vote and send them back home. But it looks like that won't even happen before they have had time to loot and plunge this great country into choas and ruin. They are arrogant and snobish bores that are too full of themselves and their power. They are just lining their own pockets. Isn't it amazing how many of the House and Senate representatives are millionaires. Hummm, kind of makes you wonder doesn't it?

      If they got any lower, they would be slithering on the ground like snakes – maybe they already are. If they are allowed to pull this off, it would have devistating results.

In pursuit of this, they jealously protect their special interest contributors who have donated millions to their campaigns. Any government takeover of healthcare must leave the special interests intact, but there are too many. Our bureaucrats are walking in a cow pasture and don’t know where to step. Our government is not good at creating an efficient, cost effective policy. They never have been. The more government, the more waste!

The American Vote!

      A matter as important as our well being should be the right of every LEGAL American Citizen to vote on. We go to polls to vote for the politicans who are suppose to represent us

      Would be nice if these elected officials were required by law to have malpractice insurance so that we can sue them after the healthcare bill they are mandating on us proves to be less care, more money, etc. Full of everything they deny is in the bill. This is simply another way of controlling the peons who have put them in office.

When has the Government ever done anything to help us, unless you part of ACORN, SEIU, TIDES Foundation and others. The bottom line is we need to have GOVERNEMENT REFORM. Lets start to focus on reducing their salaried and raises and the number of representative we have in the country. That amount would certianly pay to get minimal insurance for the perople that are without. WAKE UP AMERICA THE GOVERNMENT IS THE PROBLEM!!!!

      Regretfully, I agree with Bob,NYC. This is not America any more. I have threatened to take down my flag many times, but I think it will be down soon, and probably not by me, but by the governments orders. Look what they are doing with all of our other rights. This is a sad situation. The day of the woman riding the beast is right around the corner. Obama is primed to create the new world order which will be the most evil governing body in history. Read your bibles before the government takes that away also. The time is close for the return of our lord Jesus Christ to put a stop to all of this chaos. Pray for his return to set up his kingdom. May god be with all of us.

      I am furious about this and I emailed Harry Reid just now. They seriously think that they can slip this by without a backlash? The American people are smarter than they think. They are waking up. It is imperative for us to stop this health care takeover! If it is forced through, it will be nearly impossible to reverse. Call, write them, go to their offices and let them know that we don't want their bill! We can't wait until 2010. Do it now!

    73. Slick, Nebraska says:

      My questions is:

      WHY ARE WE STILL PAYING TAXES TO FUND THESE BULLIES??????

      If we do not live in a democratic country anymore, why should we follow the rules when they don't????????

    74. EW, Seattle says:

      We have lost our lucrative small businesses, our jobs, our home, two vehicles, our kids college funds and our life savings. We have nothing left to lose. Time for the cities to burn.

    75. Bill MN says:

      As a resident of MN we witnessed first hand why these dems have no fear of the next election. They already had a trial run here. IF we have elections next year the dems will win with absentee ballots. Thier cronnies have huge lists of voters regestered,fear of H1N1 will be used to keep people away from polling places. The rules on absentee voting will be relaxed. I will bet you dollars to donuts that every person who ever registered to vote in the history of acorn will suddenly vote. It worked for Al Franken,keep recounting till ya find the votes. If that isn't enough throw out votes that are not for dems till you FIX the numbers. It happened here it can happen to YOU.

      Bottom line: What can WE do to stop this insanity and betrayal???

    77. Lloyd Scallan - New says:

      NG of Denver is a perfect example of why we have such major problems in our country. NG, what bill has been "debated openly and publicly for months"?

      This debacle changed every day. The Baucus bill

      has not even been wirtten and better yet,

      the Dems will not allow any of the general public to see the bill in print before they jam it down our thoats. Just as with any other of Obama's

      bills, the Dems want this passed before anyone

      is allow to see the fine print. Then, Harry Reid is hiding in the weeds waiting to delete or add

      provisions that will totally change the final result. Mia states exactly what must be done to stop this, a "coup", but not by them, but instead

      by us.

    78. Mary, Florida says:

      They are playing on the 'wants' of people like Lisa who think a public option will be 'free'.

      I fail to be convinced that a public option will provide the competition needed to lower costs – it's common sense that a company that has a responsibility to their share holders to make money can't compete w/ someone who does not have to make a profit but can just print more money – not to mention, they make the rules. We've already seen it happen here in Florida w/ Citizens insurance – private insurance companies are now bowing out thus reducing the competition.

      Eventually, someone has to pay…it's this type of deferred responsibility of "I'll get it now" and "worry about paying later" that led to the economic bust we are now trying to dig out of.

      All in all, it's a power grab. If they 'give' people something, they'll 'get' to stay in power.

    79. Kay California says:

      Why don't we all go out and buy pink paper and send our representative's their termination notices via the post office?

      Just tell them that in 2010 their services will no longer be needed as they have failed to represent us. I bet if they all got enough pink slips in the mail they would take notice.

      Enough of their constituent's would have to do it for it to be effecive. Considering all the Americans who are getting pink slips because of our politician's actions, it would be justice for us to give them theirs.

      We need to do this before they vote on the health care, so those sitting on the fence might think twice before going against the will of the people.

      I have called and e-mailed every one right up to the president they are not listening. Lets stop telling each other we will vote them out of office, let tell them.

Remind them that 2010 is only 3 mos away and it's only 1 year to election. intend to go to Connolly and WEbb,Warners sitesmyself.

      I am trying to avoid paranoia, although it is becoming more and more difficult. I make decisions and form opinions based upon facts, logic and common sense. And I am very concerned that the America I knew and loved, and the America I want for my children and grandchildren is dying before our eyes. President Obama does not represent America. He does not extoll the great things this nation has achieved, but tells the world that we are evil, and weak, and wrong, etc. Has he ever stopped to wonder WHY we even have an immigration problem? Why people from all over the world, especially socialist/communist countries, are willing to risk everything to be in this country? I do not hear about Americans risking it all to immigrate to Mexico, Cuba, or anywhere else in the world! We MUST do whatever we can to stop this madness. To this point, it does not seem that the normal channels of writing, calling, faxing, gathering, etc. has had much impact on our gov't representatives. They just call us names and act as though we are nothing to them. I assure you, if this Health Reform Act and the Cap and Trade, among others, are passed, it will be time to do a clean sweep of the House and Senate! And we will NOT forget, as has been the past expreience. Because what is being done now is CRIMINAL. And I must admit that until this election I considered myself a moderate Democrat. No more! The Democratic party has been high-jacked and destroyed. It is not the Socialist Party. I pray for America.

    85. John, Seattle,WA says:

      The only thing left to do at this point is to replace each of the senators voting for this legislation. The fear of losing their jobs & power is the only thing stronger than their desire for government-run heathcare.

      ” That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

I am afraid for my future as a Registered Nurse, that I will be coerced into participating in procedures I find morally repugnant. I am afraid for my husband, a former Navy officer and self-employed small business owner, that he wil have to shut down the firm he built with his own sweat and our sacrifice.

      What it boils down to is that there is one guy in the Senate, Harry Reid, that is capable of rewriting anything he wants into Obama's Health Care plan. The Senate will confirm what he writes and the House will rubber stamp it. Obama will sign it into law within 24 hours. and there isn't anything anyone can do to stop it.

How temporary did they become? These will be no different if we can't stop them before they stop.

      I have seen this spin before from factcheck, like most of the organizations out there to put the most positive light on this they can. The bottom line on their synopsis is you won't be deprived of health insurance because you'll always have the government option, they just don't bother to emphasize that once all the private companies are out of business you're stuck with them. The government couldn't run a lemonade stand & keep it out of the red, so how are they possibly going to do it with healthcare. Factcheck says 30 to 40% cheaper, BS, some bright young wanna be tycoon, would have already undercut everyone else if there was that much room to cut. Please remember that the government regulations against selling across state lines is what is restricting competition in the insurance industry & therefore keeping the price artificially high. Where were you when the auto insurance was mandated, did your rates go down? I remember a 15% rate hike within 6 MONTHS. No company can compete when the competition DOESN'T have to make money to keep the doors open. I do believe that some reform is necessary, but the government option is not the answer. BTW where do you get 80% from, factcheck that please, because every poll I've seen even the skewed ones can't get above 60%, the legit ones are all running around 40 to 46%. I keep seeing all these outrageous claims so I decided to see for myself, I went door to door in my neighborhood & over 62% were OPPOSED to the government running healthcare, 80% my @##.

You know we all want Utopia, but we can't afford it, if we could we would all have new cars, huge homes & anything else we wanted, why is it that libs always think this crap will be free or that the rich will pay for it.

      Reddenbacher NY

      Where have YOU been?

      The government or public option is what has the majority of Americans in an uproar and rightfully so. It is tantamount to a state-run system; there will be no competition and there will be rationing. People who are happy will not keep their health care because in a few years, there will ONLY be the government option. You cannot compete with government; most people know that.

      Moreover, our "representatives" are ignoring everything the people told them. Wait until a few democrats bring this thing to the floor and push it through. No transparency is anticipated for the public let alone the legislators. It will be just like the stimulus bill.

      I'm fed up with the money-grab and taxation, are YOU? We fought the Revolutionary War

      primarily because of unfair taxation with representation. Now we have supposed representation AND taxation that makes King George look like a Saint.

      There will still be millions of uninsured AND the latest estimates are that 1/3 of the covered will be illegal aliens. I realize NY is another hotbed liberal city that ignores federal statutes in regards to enforcing illegal immigration laws. The reason this is important is because there can be no accurate cost estimate if we do not get immigration under control. NO ONE is willing to do that! So everyone else has to pay – forever – as they continue to enter the US? This is too stupid not to be an intentional POWER GRAB using the health care reason as the first step!

      I hope you like the socialist-marxist state this country is turning into because millions of us will not go quietly into the night and just give up.

      Meanwhile we all (including you) will be taxed to death just like California and New York are now.

      I don't know about anyone else, but we really have the worst democratic leaders in govn't hands down. our very own elected leaders purposely going behind our backs to pass this health care bill without any debate, letting no one read it online what soever, knowing full well this plan will hurt everyone and not help. Forcing peole to get health insurance whether they want it or not, causing other people who have insurance to go on the Govn't due to measures placed in the bill that would cause people to lose their insurance because of those measures, fining people for not getting the Govn't insurance, and also having the option to place people in jail if desired. Our founding fathers are turning over in their graves at this moment. Barack Obama is not protecting the Constitution at all, only destroying it. He needs to be impeached right now. None of our Democratric leaders are upholding the Constitution either, just driving us all down the path to Socialism without our consent. I will not watch my country be turned into a Socialist nation in the span of 4 yrs, and neither will the rest of America.

This is, and always has been a calculated attempt to "get even with whitey" and make a nation of "astroturfing racists" pay dearly for developing the greatest nation in the history of human life. Obama, while being the apple of rev. wright's (intentionally uncapitolized) eye, is awakening the IRE of the American People. We're not gonna stand by and tolerate a calculated effort of a small group of progressive radicals to "fundamentally change" our way of life so that we can someday brag about living just as well as the people in the Romania. We're Americans first and foremost and we love this great country that God has allowed us to GET to live in but the stage is being set for the greatest revolt of the people in the history of this Nation if they don't back off.

      Yesterday, Pelosi was asked how the final health care bill would be paid for and she said; we will probably have to add a VAT tax. A Value Added Tax is a sales tax, added by the government and collected by the government on everything we buy. She was talking about probably a 5% tax. MT does not have a sales tax, but in CA the sales tax is currently 10%, after the health care bill is passed, CA would be 15%. Many states already have a very high sales tax.

      Senate is saying in their bill that the amount you can deduct from your income tax for medical expenses will be decreased, so if before you could deduct anything over 7% of your income, now you could only deduct over 9.5%.

      There are increases in insurance premiums, plus they plan to add a huge tax to insurance companies which would be passed on to policy holders. They plan to cut Medicare. Medicare is something that we pay in to for our retirement years. Medicare only covers a very small portion of doctor/hospital bills. I don't know how they could cut any more from it. If they eliminate Medicare Advantage, that would throw everyone into the Government plan.

      Both bills or a final bill will also, according to the Supreme Court, cover illegals and abortion.

      More than the health care bill being a disaster and undermining America, the fact that Reid and friends can even take this behind closed doors to put into law what they want anyway, without the citizens having a right to read it and question the final version, is dictatorship. That worries me more than what's in the bill, and I'm against the bill as it is being presented now. Reform is needed, but not the way they want to do it. A public option would destroy us, it will cause us all to go broke, and guess what, it will make us more dependant on the Gov't for our basic needs. THAT my friends is what they want. It's all about the power and control.

      Obama's promises are meaningless, he and his Czars backed by the Democratic Congress are 'fundamentally changing the United States of America' right before our eyes. And the change he is making is not Constitutional.

You & what's become of the conservative movement have lost all credibility due to this & other transparent pandering to your puppetmasters, and the last election was the end result.

      Bah. Preach on to your echo chamber of the fearful & ignorant; the country at large no longer listens to you.

    215. Mike Jones, Palo Alt says:

      What are you complaining about? We voted for him so that he'd make health care happen and he is making it happen. He has the majority to pass this, over Republican objections. Republicans and lobbyists simply want an opportunity to use rhetoric and fear mongering to sabotage health care reform, like they have done before. Good for Obama if he deprives them of that opportunity.

      So much whining and gnashing of teeth over 'constitutional' transgressions. Where were you people when the prior administration was destroying and subverting the constitution then? Spying on Americans, torturing prisoners, suspending freedom of speech, etc. etc. or does it only matter now when your party has been backed into a corner because they have not offered a compelling alternative to universal healthcare? Look deep within and help your representative craft something we call ALL live with instead of the endless belly aching about the liberal left.

      I am 100% in favor for health care reform as soon as possible. The right has attempted to lie about and vilify every aspect of health care reform with looking at the one underlying fact: The health care insurance industry has completely failed to regulate itself, and has proven itself greedy to the point of being criminally negligent of the people who rely on health insurance. The debate has been nothing but sound bites and attempts to blur from the fact that sweeping reform is needed, and needed now. If you want to be upset by something, be upset by all of your representatives receiving MILLIONS of dollars from the health care insurance industry and their lobbyists and not doing anything to listen nor represent we the people. The overwhelming majority of the American people are in favor of this reform. Even after all the partisan attacks and blatant lies about this policy reform… it is still a majority in most polls favoring this course of action. Follow the campaign contributions by lobbyist and pacs.. don't be fooled into being against something that will benefit the vast majority of us.

      Then, when the next elections come up, and if the MAJORITY are displeased,then new members of the senate, congress and White House will indeed be elected.

      Until then the politicians elected by the majority have business to do and need to get'r done.

      Any person who can't see that we face a vast conspiracy to weaken America and transform it's people into third world slaves is an idiot! Some still believe in 'coincidence theories' that cannot stand-up to the slightest scrutiny. They shipped our industries overseas and flooded this country with immigrants with their conspiracy in mind. They are taking over every media outlet with their fiat money. They lent money to shills who bought papers knowing they could never service the debt associated with the deals; and lo and behold, one chain of newspapers after another has fallen into their hands since they orchestrated the greatest ripoff in history on Wall Street and Washington in 2007-2009. They are using false patriotism to sell a stupid war that is designed to drain America of its resources, while enriching corporations. I still read one so-called conservative after another supporting their globalist schemes (like the never ending war against terrorism, that distracts distracts and allows them to thrive in seclusion). They spelled this all out in a book called 'The opportunity' written by a a guy who worked in the State Department under Bush, and who now guides the globalist plan as officer serving under Hillary Clinton. The terrorist threatening this country are right here living amongst us. They are your neighbor who lies to promote the mortgage industry, and the jerk who works at the call center, harassing people over debts made-up out of thin air. But most of all its your local congressman, whether they are Republicans or Democrats. Any person still contemplating belonging to either party is a TRAITOR. If the shoe fits, wear it! As for removing them in elections. I ran on a platform against the globalist and refused to acceot money while doing so. I got kidnapped twice off debate stages, and I just finished a 7 monyth trial, wherein they tried to stick me with a year in jail for speaking at a debate, using a statute that says it can't be used to prosecute someone for speaking at a debate. The media hid their tapes of the event to aid the prosecutor. The arresting officer hid his recording of the event. The local media instigated my arrest along with Duncan Hunter jr (my 'conservative' opponent in the election), and of course, the public was never told that I was put on trial for my speech. That was all kept secret to protect Duncan Hunter and the local DA. So, you've been warned. Run for congress and they will try and put you in jail! And that's just a small part of the harassment I suffered as a candidate for congress running against the criminals from the two major parties. We're gonna need some luck and a whole lot more effort from people who ONLY blog.

      I don't think I could fit in this space the number of things wrong with the majority of what is being said here. First of all, despite what you may want, the majority of Americans want a public OPTION (do you understand what option means? It means you have MORE choices.) Everyone can keep the insurance they have, no one is trying to make you switch over or get a new doctor. It just means my hard working neighbor who has been self employed his whole life and has no means for affordable insurance would have been able to see a doctor to realize he was dying from pancreatic cancer. It also means he might have been able to afford the medicine ($500 out of pocket a WEEK) to help him deal with the unbearable pain. So he is living his last days unmedicated in excruciating pain. How is that moral? Second of all, our government is broken and I agree we need to do a lot to fix it. It has been breaking for a long time… and I don't think "getting our guns" is a well thought out solution. The Bush administration had shady ways of passing bills and took away liberties…did you all speak up then? Shouldn't we speak up ANY time there is injustice and not just when it's done by the "other side"? Why are we so quick to bat for "our side" without really looking at the big picture? I voted for Obama and I have my criticisms too. But, I urge you to be critical of where you get your information and really take some time to make sure you are not perpetuating hateful and unfounded statements. It is our responsibility as Americans to not just go on hearsay but find truth.

      Here is my reference from what I stated above about what the "majority of Americans" want, please be responsible and do the same with your "facts" you want to share:

      June 20, 2009:

      "A clear majority of Americans — 72 percent — support a government-sponsored health care plan to compete with private insurers, a new CBS News/New York Times poll finds. Most also think the government would do a better job than private industry at keeping down costs and believe that the government should guarantee health care for all Americans."

      We rejected God's wisdom and now there are tens of thousands of laws and many of them can be altered by decisions of a judge. With God, things are stable enough that we can judge ourselves and determine the penalty before hand because it is clearly written and does not change. It is preventive, protective and restorative in its judgments. Our laws do not protect or restore; they continues to take from us in the form of taxes to house inmates and in the judgments. We are going the wrong way; God's way is easier. It will only come when we want it.

Also reduce the wages of the new Senators, Representatives back to about 15 years ago and see if that will help calm their professional inpropriorities. This in itself would help recoup some of our monetary losses. Then see that all the federal employees ie, congressmen, representatives are included in the Social Security program instead of continuing to put good money after bad by giving them a 100% retirement and medical benefits.

      We have some that have been in there so long that they wouldn't know how to cope in the working world. If they need compensation for time in service so to speak then set up a percentage type payment such as we that were in the Military have.

      Funny… I posted something earlier that didn't make it past the moderators. I'm glad- it was way too sarcastic and mean spirited. But I'll tell you- you should all read through the comments again. There is an amazing bunch of paranoia and blind anger going on here.

      Obama this and Obama that. Socialist, Nazi, Marxist, oppressive. Really?

      We, the people, have called for a restructuring of our health-care system. Our elected officials- at least those who have to some degree resisted the temptation of the brib… 'scuse me… lobbying efforts on the part of the FOR PROFIT health care industry- are working to pass legislation that will offer us an option if we so choose to use it. Mr. President Obama happens to agree with the people that elected him in this matter.

      From where in any of that do you get "Socialist" "oppressive" or any of the other weird things you're spewing? From my perspective, it looks like I offered you an apple and you ran away screaming, "Fire in the theater! Fire in the theater!" It just looks crazy (read the comments again and you'll see what I mean). But it's catching! What's up!?

      Obama: "We want to give you a health care system that works for YOU."

      Conservatives: "Oh don't you dare, you Commie Nazi you!"

      If you don't want to use the public option, then option not to use it. Your private insurance will be cheaper anyway (or should be if they don't pocket the savings), as there will be competition. It will be cheaper, because the emergency rooms will be used for emergencies instead of for uninsured- you pay for that now.

      Everybody could win with this, but some people are so committed to having a loser that they're even willing to be that loser themselves. And then try to take everyone down with them. We all lose then. Except for the CEO of the insurance company, who laughs all the way to the bank with your $500 million.

      What you angry people don't understand is that I am on your side, even though you are not on my side. You do everything you can to demean the Liberal and Progressive causes, try to make even the names into bad words. And yet everything we stand for is for you as well as me. Your kids should have the same clean and green future we all had. Your kids should benefit from American ingenuity with a health care system that is designed to serve them.

      Although I don't approve AT ALL of Congress' circumventing the will of the American people, I suspect they really, actually believe they're operating in the best interest of the American People – with the Greatest Depression before us, we are facing the greatest catastrophe this country and World will ever face. I suspect our elected officials know the real truth – Years of prolonged double-digit unemployment are ahead of us, and the unemployed public will need something.

      I suspect they also feel the American people have no idea what's in store for them in the coming years, and have no interest in seeing Healthcare reform die on the vine in the meantime.

      I hope they're ready to face the consequences of thier actions – they will either be looked at as saviours, or will be sacrificed for their actions in the next elections, assuming we still have a democratic way of life in the years to come.

      Remember the rantings of the left re: "Patriot Act" – the mantra was that people were losing freedoms. I don't know of anyone that lost any freedoms from that passage.

      But if this bill comes to pass without further public discussion, it is well apparent to every US citizen that we have all knowingly lost a very tangible freedom – one of choice.

      If this passes, I hope we retain the right to public assembly….hell will be raised.

      The "nuclear option" – this isn't supposed to happen! Ever since my grade school days, I've been taught that our system of government has "checks and balances" – to prevent just this sort of antic. How can this happen in the United States? A handful (relative) of rogue lawmakers, hell bent on implementing their socialist agenda in this democratic, capatalist country, are going to ruin, in less than a year, the best country on earth. Again, how can this happen?

      We have got to be ever vigilant and not let ourselves get distracted by this administration's slight of hand and outright lies. These folks are experts at bare knuckle politics, and the entire administration has come from the Chicago-style politics that have embarassed the state of Illinois for many years. They will say whatever sounds good at the moment, all the while thinking to themselves "we're going to jam this down your throat – we know better than you what's good for you". And they'll do it with a smile on their face.

      Until recently, I asked "how can an administration like tis one get into office?". Well, we have only the lousy, ineffective, liberal mouthpiece that is erroneously termed the media. These people (ABC, NBC, CNBC, CBS, CNN, HLN – all of them but Fox) hav never asked a hard question, never spent hours researching, and don't worry about verifying anything that Obama's people tell them – they just shovel it out there. They bear a large portion of the blame because responsible journalism is not part of their product. Even IF they knew how radical and so far left that these people were, they woud not have "rocked the boat" by telling us, the American people. I hope they suffer for their duplicity and we now KNOW better than to put any stock in any of their trash – political or otherwise.

      Lets find a way to rescind this outrageous Health Bill, If is should pass. Obama will not be re-elect in 2012 this Bill will be not take affect until 2013. I can not believe the people in congress would risk their political future for the two most odorous Bill next to Cap and Trade.

      Our government was going hell way before Obama got here….his arrival just made things easier for them all..and now its just one big party for them. This so called "President" received a vast majority of his votes from people who already abuse the system, and they've put us all on a horrific path thats going to destroy what has been fought for so defiantly by our sons, daughters, husbands, wives, and forefathers. These "people" in our Government are an embarrassment and I for one, am becoming more and more ashamed that we have let it come to this. This government is an "entity" that I think the citizens of American should sue! They are not working in our best interest, and they are making rules that won't apply to them….and as long as we do nothing more than just sit here typing out our feelings as opposed to actually getting involved, then its just going to keep going "their way" and we, the People, will pay. God Bless America because we are in big doo doo.

      I would like my congress and my senate who represent me in the state of california to stop all this outrageous spending. We need to bring our troops home and protect our borders. Think of the people that elected you to be in office. The health Insurance plan will be our downfall to our freedom as we now know it. Do not rush to judgement. Your constituents overwhelmingly oppose the health bill.

      My father is a WWII veteran and he sacrificed four of his life to protect me and my family and your family in order to have a free country and a democracy. Protect our rights as citzens of the United States. Please do not flush our country down the toilet. I love my country and it makes me mad that you all in the white house are throwing it away.

      In conclusion you must represent your constituents and not the lobbyists! Thank you Cheryl Hopkins "God Bless American"

This is a great project, and as long as Tim has enough resources to continue, he should. To put your whole spirit into a project, and to enjoy it, is one of the best feelings in life.

      This all just reinforces the fact that Obama and the Liberal Democrats are inherently dishonest. People in this country must join together to defeat this kind of government that has no regard whatever for the people of this country. They care only about their liberal philosophies and their power.
