Tonight, the House voted to repeal ObamaCare, in a completion of a promise made to the American people. Now, the democrats in the Senate most assuredly will vote to keep it, in complete abandonment of several things. The American people’s wishes and the American Constitution.
And Separately, the Republicans are expected to cut off the funding for the bill, mainly because the Democrats still do not get it. The American people want this monstrosity of a bill repealed. But the media does’t get it either. They are reporting that the Republicans are only keeping a campaign promise to vote to repeal the bill. They are actually doing what they were sent there to do, which is more than any of the others in Washington are doing.
But the “mantra” of the media and the democrats is in full swing. They have found their new code word, which is “racism”, and they are decrying that anyone who votes against them is a racist. Michael Moore is telling us all that anyone who owns a gun is a racist. HUH???? Now, I own a gun, but I am not a racist. The racists here are the ones who are raising that “mantra” to hurt others who do not believe as they do. But it doesn’t stop there.
Jim Moran, D-Va., accused some Republicans of “the height of hypocrisy” by voting to repeal a vast expansion of health care at the same time they had signed up for coverage for their families through a government-organized program available to lawmakers.
Frank Pallone, D-N.J., said that despite claims of employment loss, the economy had added jobs in each of the past 10 months.
Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., said repeal would return power to insurance companies. “Has anybody, any family in America, any single mother, any spouse, any child, any grandparent met a more bureaucratic system than the American health insurance system? There is no more bureaucratic system.”
Three Democrats voted with Republicans on the repeal measure: Dan Boren of Oklahoma, Mike McIntyre of North Carolina and Mike Ross of Arkansas.
From the AP news wire came this:
Debate across two days leading to the vote was markedly restrained, as lawmakers in both political parties observed self-imposed vows of civility in the wake of the shooting rampage in Arizona that left six dead and Rep. Gabrielle Giffords wounded.
But there was no mistaking the significance many first-term Republican lawmakers attached to a day they had long waited for, finally getting a chance to speak and then vote on the House floor against a law they had campaigned for months to repeal.
Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C. said the legislation produced by Obama and congressional Democrats was a “job-killing, socialistic” approach to health care. Rep. Frank Guinta of New Hampshire, who defeated a Democratic incumbent last fall, said it was misguided, needing repeal.
“The American people have soundly, soundly rejected the Democrats’ government takeover of health care,” said Rep. Sandy Adams of Florida.
Rep. Steve Southerland, also of Florida, said the law imposes a crushing tax burden on businesses, and he predicted “1.6 million jobs will be lost by 2014 due to this mandate” to require many businesses to provide coverage for employees.
Both Floridians won their seats by turning out Democratic incumbents.
“This is not symbolic. This is why we were sent here,” added Rep. Michelle Bachman, of Minnesota, a third-term conservative with strong support among tea party activists.
On the short end of the vote, Democrats challenged Republican claims and highlighted politically popular elements of the bill that would be wiped out if repeal took effect.
Is it any wonder why the democrats find themselves in such dire straits now? Harry Reid, of the Senate said that ‘the legislation will not see the light of day there,’ but GOP leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said bluntly, “I assure you we will” have a vote on it. He did not predict the repeal would pass, but even a vote could present a difficult choice for Democrats facing re-election campaigns in swing states in 2012.
But mark my words here people, do not forget what the democrats of late stand for. It isn’t what they will vote for if their position in the Senate depends on them voting against the bill. If they vote against it, it will be because they fear they will lose their seats in the next election, and don’t forget it. They really want to vote FOR the bill to keep it. Vote them back in with the next election, they will go back to voting with the liberals. MARK MY WORDS FOLKS……don’t doubt what I am saying. Because they still do not get it.
Another thing that has happened over the last few days, is the democrats in Illinios has shown us that they don’t get it either. Instead of lowering taxes and trying to help their flagging economy, they have raised income taxes on businesses in the state by 65%!
Governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana has sent letters of invitation to a lot of them, asking them to lower their tax burden, and move to Indiana, where the state is in good shape, even in this economy. We are waiting to hear from them now.
May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans.
