This band of fools is poised to inflict upon the American people the most expensive boondoggles ever conceived in the annals of American history, all in the guise of Health Care reform, which represents 1/6th of our nation's GDP, that clearly the majority of American people do not want and certainly cannot afford. To make a tremendously ill-conceived bad idea even worse (even for Congress), this bill doesn't come close to reforming out health care system; it merely rearranges the deck chairs on a sinking ship by forcing 30 million more people to buy into an already failed and broken system.
No one who has witnessed the cost of health care services and health insurance spiral astronomically upwards in the last decade can argue that our nation's health care system is not in dire need of revision, but blatant partisan politics, clandestinely conducted in the dead of night, is the not the method by which such meaningful and fair reform can flourish. Obama's promise of open and transparent government "in the sunshine" hasn't seen the light of day since he assumed office. The Democrats have literally seized control of the Halls of Congress, meeting behind closed doors without opposition party participation, and have refused to entertain even moderate Republican proposals that would enrich the proposed legislation to make it more palatable to the American electorate. It is an ever escalating "Us Against Them!" mentality that permeates both chambers of Congress, and the American people are the losers, facing the prospects of higher insurance cost, more taxes, and a limitation on what types of medical treatments we shall be entitled to receive. If this isn't elitist and arrogant socialism being paraded in the garb of serving the "greater good," then I don't what else to call it.
This has been a particularly difficult year for our nation. Unemployment overall stands at a disheartening 17% with no viable economic recovery in sight, although the liberal media would paint a far rosier picture that we have bottomed out and renewed happy days are just around the corner. If that is so, then why is American business not rushing to add more workers to their employment roles? Such are wise to hold in abeyance such expansion, knowing that Obama, Pelosi, Reed, et al. are not through with adding yet more overhead restrictions and tax burden to their costs; health care being the first, with Cap and Trade legislation waiting in the wings. Printing and spending more and more money that has less and less purchasing power and taxing America into prosperity is simply ill-conceived, if not diametrically in opposition to every heretofore proven economic model to the contrary. Why would Obama proclaim in panic stricken tones that unless America adopts his radical health care plan that the nation would soon be bankrupt only to several short days later pledge $10 billion dollars of America's tax dollars to combat global warming? Has the elevated CO2 emissions reached such stifling degrees in the Oval Office that his already previously displayed impaired ability to make rational decisions (although the Beer Summit was indeed an exception to the rule) become even more damaged, or is the truth of the matter that as a woof in thinly veiled sheep's clothing Obama is crafty enough to speak out of whichever side of his mouth that suits his lemming audience at the moment?
Obama prophetically said on the campaign trail that he would be satisfied if he only served one term as long as he made a viable impact in imparting his radical ideals for changing America. Of all of his pretenses to viability, I am happy to line up to vote for this one. But first things first... "We The People" now have the task of disposing all of the liberal jerks that think they know more than do we. Think again. Anyone who cast an affirmative vote for Health Care, regardless of party affiliation, and is up for re-election in this coming mid-term election, will soon thereafter be out of office and practicing the phrase "Would you like fries with this?" It's time to take names and kick butts. The ship is taking on water, but there's a helluva-a-lot more of us than there are of them. And after we lighten the load by throwing the bums overboard, we'll turn this freedom ship around and reclaim it again for the true liberty loving Americans. Be advised, if you're not willing to be part of the solution, you are the problem. If you can't push, pull. If you can't pull your own weight in this fight, get the hell out of the way. We're about to run over you.
