“Don’t bother to repeal Obamacare in the House. Don’t even bother, because it’s gonna fail in the Senate. Don’t even bother with it.”
-Senator Harry Reid to House-
Even before yesterday’s vote in the House to repeal Obamacare, in which four democrats and all republicans voted for, the democrat leaders and media started their “parade of victims” to keep this from happening. But that didn’t stop the Republicans and four democrats from doing it anyway. Yesterday, in a vote of 236 – 181, largely along party lines should show Americans just what the democrats think of what the people told them on November 2nd a few weeks ago. The democrats, minus the four that voted with the Republicans think that the American people didn’t tell them to stop.
In response to the quote from Harry Reid above, house leader John Boehner’s response: “Senators Reid, Durbin, Schumer, Murray and Stabenow: Thank you for reminding us — and the American people — of the backroom deal that you struck behind closed doors with ‘Big Pharma,’ resulting in bigger profits for the drug companies, and higher prescription drug costs for 33 million seniors enrolled in Medicare Part D, at a cost to the taxpayers of $42.6 billion. The House is going to pass legislation to repeal that now. You’re welcome.” It seems that so far, the Republicans do have the backbone we have been wondering about for years. And the democrats do not like this one bit.
To me, this is a blatant and in your face message, from the democrats, that should let us know what they think of us telling them what to do. They are saying to us; ‘screw you people. We are in charge and you can’t change that!’ In other words, ‘to hell with what the people want. It isn’t what we want.’ I think that the democrats haven’t gotten the message the people sent to Washington just a few short weeks ago.
Obama, for a few days seemed to swing to the right in his policies, but as I said, he hasn’t changed. He is only posturing himself to further his agenda, with a little detour to help his standing by making the American people think that he is listening. Which he isn’t!
The democrats have started their “lineup of victims” of this if Obamacare is repealed. And mark my words here folks, the frenzy to show these so called “victims” has only just begun, as the song said. Victims that will claim that they will lose benefits if the bill is repealed.
But, we are not really talking about benefits that you may get down the road, here. And mark my words, the victim parade is now being assembled to be used in earnest, as this goes farther down the road.
We will get commercials like the old global warming ones that showed a sad little girl standing on a railroad track, with a speeding train moving towards her, showing that if this is repealed, she will die. In something like this, the democrats shamelessly use something that happens to all of us eventually as something that would be averted if the health care bill was left intact. Then, the blaming would start, by trying to make the people believe that only they care about your welfare. ‘The democrats want to save you. Republicans only want to kill you.’
The democrats will monitor Republican claims, send out fact-checks and deploy a team of surrogates to get their views on television. Paid television advertisements will be run ‘as warrants,’ said one senior Democrat, who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the program. But it is in the works folks, and it is coming. So I hope the Republicans are ready and have a backbone this time to stand up to the lies that will be told about them.
And we have heard all this rhetoric before folks. Many times before. The only difference now is, that the American people are awake and listening to everything that is being said…..from both sides now. And, not to sell Harry Reid shorter than his intelligence seems to do already, the tea party will NOT go away as long as you liberals continue to ignore the wants and desires of your bosses. The American people. If you don’t believe me on this, keep doing the things you are. YOU WILL FIND OUT soon enough when your armagedden hits in 2012. I believe this will happen because democrats do this every time any piece of controversial legislation of theirs, that’s wasteful and unproductive comes up for repeal, or change…….and it will happen this time. Mark my words here. IT WILL HAPPEN. Now the democrats are claiming that the republicans are going to hurt the people. Organizing for America, the president’s chief political apparatus, will host phone banks and schedule events featuring people who would supposedly lose their benefits if the health care law were repealed.” It is the same kind of scare tactics that the liberals come down on the republicans for using. The difference? These are really scare tactics, with little truth to them, to change the voters ideas about what is really going on. They want the American people to believe their lies. Plain and simple.
And on to another subject, that should set your blood to boiling because it shows how little they really care: It was bad enough that after Sgt. Sean Collins was killed in Afghanistan, his parents received a letter of condolence with the wrong name. But the soldier’s father says the White House added to the sting by subsequently turning down a request for President Obama to personally call Collins’ mother. We have to look at everything this administration, the democrats and the old guard republicans are doing. Because their actions speak louder than the words they use to refudiate what they are really doing. Listen and learn folks. The establishment in Washington doesn’t care what you think, or do they care about the military, as shown by Obama with this soldier that died in service of his country. Shame, shame shame on you politicians in Washington who will not listen to the people.
May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans.
