    Act Now or Never to Stop ObamaCare


    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid twisted arms and cut back-room deals to obtain the 60 votes needed to bring ObamaCare to the floor of the Senate before leaving town for Thanksgiving.

    But now that the Senate is back in session, Reid, Barack Obama and other proponents of government-run health care still need 60 votes to pass ObamaCare... 60 votes they still do not have.

    That means, we can still win the battle to stop ObamaCare once and for all.

    And Harry Reid and Barack Obama know it too. That's why they are twisting even more arms and cutting even more behind-the-scenes deals at this very moment.

    In fact, as you read this urgent letter, Reid and Obama are desperately doing whatever it takes to entice and coerce moderate Democrats, including Senators Ben Nelson, Blanche Lincoln and Mary Landrieu who claim to be on the fence. They are even trying to convince some RINOs (Republicans-In-Name-Only), like Senator Olympia Snowe, to vote for ObamaCare.

    That's why we must keep pushing... that's why we must act now and counter this last desperate blitz by proponents of government-run health care.

    If we do nothing, Reid and Obama will succeed. If we take action, our chances of victory are very good... it is that simple.

    If Reid does not get the 60 votes he so desperately needs, ObamaCare will die a quick and unceremonious death... it will be finished... the battle against government-run health care for the foreseeable future will be won... for you... for your family... and for all of the American people.

    Stopping Harry Reid from getting the 60 votes he so desperately needs means... no drastic cuts in Medicare for our nation's senior citizens... no rationing... no doctor's offices that resemble local Department of Motor Vehicle offices... no forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions... and no jail sentences for those who resist ObamaCare.

Or alternately, you can send your urgent and personalized Blast Faxes to all 100 Members of the United States Senate... that's 100 Blast Faxes.

    Let them know that the American people do not want any ObamaCare fixes... the American people do not want any ObamaCare compromises... and most of all, remind them that when it comes to ObamaCare, the American people do not want any more legislative shenanigans or back-room deals. Tell these elected officials that the American people want ObamaCare stopped... plain and simple.

    What's Wrong With ObamaCare? Here's What Others Are Saying.

    Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer recently said ObamaCare "should not only be defeated. It should be immolated, its ashes scattered over the Senate swimming pool."

    Calling ObamaCare an "overregulated, overbureaucratized system of surpassing arbitrariness and inefficiency," Krauthammer points out that the Senate and House versions of ObamaCare together are over "4000-plus" pages and call for "118 new boards, commissions and programs."

    The Wall Street Journal said the Pelosi version of ObamaCare "may well be the worst piece of post-New Deal legislation ever introduced."

    According to the Journal:

    "Taxes will need to rise precipitously, even as ObamaCare so dramatically expands government control of health care that eventually all medicine will be rationed via politics."

    And the Journal adds:

    "Yet at this point, Democrats have dumped any pretense of genuine bipartisan 'reform' and moved into the realm of pure power politics as they race against the unpopularity of their own agenda. The goal is to ram through whatever income-redistribution scheme they can claim to be 'universal coverage.' The result will be destructive on every level -- for the health-care system, for the country's fiscal condition, and ultimately for American freedom and prosperity."

    And according to a chilling analysis by the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT), the Pelosi version of ObamaCare requires you to purchase a government-approved plan or face a penalty of up to 2.5 percent of your income (collected by the IRS, of course) if you fail to maintain "acceptable health insurance coverage."

    And refusal to pay the penalty "is punishable by a fine of up to 250,000 dollars and/or imprisonment for up to five years."

    This draconian provision led Congressman Dave Camp (R-MI), Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee, to say:

    "This is the ultimate example of the Democrats' command-and-control style of governing - buy what we tell you or go to jail."

    Need we say more? ObamaCare must be defeated. Socialized medicine, rationing of care, and inferior care at a higher cost must be defeated.

    Legislative Idiocy Or A Plan For Total Government Control?

    The American people don't want government-run health care.

    According to a USA Today/Gallup poll in October, Americans oppose ObamaCare by a margin of 51-41 percent.

    That level of opposition by the American people might explain why our elected officials are frantically rushing to pass ObamaCare... meeting in secret... twisting arms... cutting backroom deals.

    And if Obama can institute government-run health care, he will have won the war. Health care as you know it will be gone forever.
    You will lose your coverage as private insurance carriers are strangled out of existence. A report by the Lewin Group, commissioned by the Heritage Foundation, concluded the House-approved health care bill would shift more than 83.4 million Americans from private health care coverage to the government plan.

    Your health care will be rationed and bureaucrats in Washington will usurp the doctor-patient relationship when it comes to making health care decisions for you and your family.

    And yes.... waiting rooms will begin to overflow and resemble your local Department of Motor Vehicles.
    Scare-tactics? Hardly.

    All these inhumane things inevitably happen when governments practice medicine. They are characteristic of the socialist systems in Canada, Britain and Northern Europe.

    Obama promised change, but ObamaCare is not what the American people signed up for.

    We must stop ObamaCare... and yes, we can stop ObamaCare if we act now.

    Kill The Bill AKA: ObamaCare...

    IF you have not taken the action suggested in my last post, please do...

    Kill The Bill AKA: ObamaCare...

    • The true cost of the Senate health care bill is likely to be close to $2.5 trillion, according to Heritage Foundation analysis—roughly three times what the Left has advertised. "The true cost is hidden by a host of budget gimmicks, including the fact that higher taxes would start immediately but any benefits wouldn't come for years," reveals Heritage's Dan Holler. This deflated price tag also hides massive cuts to doctors' reimbursement rates. Two weeks ago, 60 Senators voted to begin debate on the bill, which Holler said "is almost always a vote to pass the bill."


    • Heritage fellow and former Congressman Ernest Istook appeared on Ed Schultz's radio show and gave the liberal host a run for his money in a debate about Congress' health care proposal. Columnist Jack Coleman sums up their discussion this way: "Schultz made the mistake of allowing a guest on his radio show Tuesday who knew what he was talking about." Read the transcript and listen to the exchange at NewsBusters.

    GOA vs. Gun Ban Obama & Company

    As White House talks turkey on health care ...
    GOA responds to administration attacks


    Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert

    Wednesday, December 2, 2009

    ACTION: As the Senate begins debate on socialized health care this week, the White House is pulling out all the stops to get it passed, including an attack on Gun Owners of America and the Second Amendment.

    Please contact your Senators and warn them that a vote in favor of socialized health care will be considered a vote against the Second Amendment. [A pre-written letter is provided below.]

    Why don't they read the bills?

    Last week, as Americans were getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, Obama's spin doctors were still in full combat mode, taking shots at Gun Owners of America.

    On the official White House blog, deputy communications director Dan Pfeiffer denied that the health care bill would affect gun owners. After all, he writes, "there is no mention [of] 'gun-related health data' or anything like it anywhere in either the Senate or the House bills."

    Well, unlike so many in Congress, GOA attorneys have actually read the bills, something they have been doing since before Mr. Pfeiffer was born.

    So, how would ObamaCare attack gun rights?

    First of all, the fact that the bills do not mention the words "gun related health data" is meaningless. Those who know even a little bit about gun law understand the increasing use of statutes which do not mention guns -- in order to regulate them nonetheless.

    Gun banners love to interpret laws in the most expansive ways

    Within the past year, the federal district court for the District of Columbia used the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to overturn Bush regulations involving guns in parks. NEPA did not purport to apply to guns.

    Increasingly, zoning ordinances are being used to put gun ranges and gun dealers out of business. These ordinances do not mention guns.

    Thirty-five jurisdictions have brought lawsuits to try to put gun manufacturers out of business, arguing negligence, product defect, and nuisance law which were not previously thought to apply to guns.

    And, over the last decade, veterans suffering from PTSD have been denied the right to purchase a gun. This was not supposed to happen when the Brady Law was enacted in 1994, but that did not keep Clinton's Department of Veterans Affairs from using the law to disarm thousands upon thousands of veterans, without any due process.

    ObamaCare gives tremendous authority to anti-gun bureaucrats

    Turning to what is written in the health care bill, section 1104 would give the Secretary of Health and Human Services (currently anti-gunner Kathleen Sebelius) broad authority to promulgate rules once ObamaCare becomes law.

    For example, the bill requires health plans to certify, in writing, "that the data and information systems [demonstrate] to the Secretary that the plan conducts the electronic transactions ... in a manner that fully complies with the regulations of the Secretary." [Section 1104(b)(2).]

    What health-related "gun" data do we fear would be required to be submitted under these rules? Increasingly, protocols are requiring that kids (and adults) be asked by physicians about loaded firearms in the household. A keyword search by BATFE of a federal database created by section 13001 of the stimulus bill -- but enforced by the Senate version of ObamaCare -- could produce something pretty close to a national gun registry.

    Veterans have already been disarmed without due process

    In addition, between 115,000 and 150,000 veterans have had their gun rights permanently taken away from them because the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has appointed a financial guardian for them when they received counseling for common illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorder -- and all of this with no due process nor trial in a court of law. Under BATFE regulations issued during the Clinton administration, a diagnosis by a psychiatrist in connection with a government program (such as the Education of All Handicapped Children Act, Medicare, etc.) is sufficient to declare the person a "prohibited person" under 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(4).

    Hence, BATFE could similarly take the position that a finding of Alzheimer's, PTSD, or ADHD should result in the loss of gun rights. And, under the Senate ObamaCare bill, this information could be obtained by BATFE with nothing more than a keyword search of the newly created database.

    Incidentally, federal privacy protections do not apply to law enforcement agencies like BATFE.

    Higher insurance premiums for gun owners

    White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer also writes: "Nothing in the Senate health reform bill would lead to higher premiums for gun owners .... Section 2717 [specifically] lists what types of programs would be involved -- such as smoking cessation, physical fitness, nutrition, heart disease prevention ...."

    Well, as any lawyer would know, that list in section 2717 is "inclusive," but is not "exclusive."

    Section 1201 of the bill creates "wellness" programs which allow consideration of behavioral issues in setting premiums and, presumably, determining activities which are so dangerous that coverage might be suspended. The definition of "wellness" includes some very broad issues, including obesity and "lifestyle." But even these broad categories are not exclusive and do not prevent, for example, the consideration of firearms ownership -- as State Farm and Prudential have already done on some occasions.
    You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Senators the pre-written e-mail message below.

    ----- Pre-written letter -----

    Dear Senator:

    The White House is refusing to admit the obvious. The Congressional Budget Office has exposed the fact that the emperor has no clothes, documenting that health insurance premiums will significantly rise if ObamaCare passes.

    Similarly, the White House is refusing to admit that its prized piece of legislation could affect gun owners. The White House is plain wrong.

    Please go to As White House talks turkey on health care ... to see Gun Owners of America's response to the White House, showing the threat ObamaCare poses to gun rights.

    Sincerely,

    Impeach Obama Campaign




    Barack Hussein Obama and Harry Reid pulled out all the stops... they cut deals in the dark of night and twisted arms to obtain the 60 votes they needed to bring ObamaCare to the floor of the Senate.

    But they still need 60 votes to actually pass ObamaCare... and that's 60 votes they do not presently have at the moment.

    And they know it too... that's why they're working overtime... behind closed doors... right now as you read this letter... twisting more arms and offering more dark-of-night deals.

    And when it comes to twisting arms and making deals, they've got their sites set on RINOs such as Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins as well as red state Democrats such as Senators Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu and Blanche Lincoln.

    They'll do whatever they can to entice or force these Senators to vote for ObamaCare... they'll beg and borrow and steal... they'll try to win by any means necessary.

    That means we have our work cut out for us because, quite frankly, if we do nothing, they will succeed... but if we take action, we can stop them and put ObamaCare to rest once and for all.

    And, make no mistake, Harry Reid and Barack Obama are depending on you to do just that... nothing. Let's not give them the satisfaction... let's not let them win... the future of this great nation is at stake.

    If we take action now, we can deny them the 60 votes they so desperately need to pass ObamaCare.

    Yes... we can win and save this great nation, but only if you join me right now and make it happen.

    Use the button below to send your urgent faxes to each and every Republican Member of the United States Senate as well as Senators Blanche Lincoln, Joseph Lieberman, Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu (key Democrat Senators who are sitting on the fence).

    Let them know that the American people were not fooled or deceived by that hasty Saturday vote. Let them know that you consider the vote on the motion to proceed on ObamaCare to be a vote in favor of ObamaCare.

    Tell these politicians that you expect them to support the pending filibuster of ObamaCare. Tell them that you will not tolerate any more shenanigans or secret deals made in back-rooms in the dark of night. Remind these politicians in Washington that the American people do not want government-run health care debated or fixed. Remind them that the American people do not want ObamaCare amended or fixed. Tell them that the American people want ObamaCare defeated once and for all... period.

    Hoodwinking The American People... Prior to leaving town for the Thanksgiving holiday, liberals in the Senate and the media tried to pull the wool over your eyes.

    Senators Ben Nelson and Blanche Lincoln and Mary Landrieu essentially told you that the hasty vote to bring ObamaCare to the floor that took place in the Senate on the Saturday before Thanksgiving was nothing more than a procedural thing... that it did not signal support for ObamaCare.

    But truth be told... a no vote by either Nelson... or Landrieu... or Lincoln... would have killed ObamaCare.

    So why did they give ObamaCare a last minute reprieve... why did they give Barack Obama and Harry Reid another chance to twist arms and work deals behind the scenes?

    Before the vote, Senator Jim DeMint saw through the subterfuge:

    “Let’s be clear: Any senator who votes to proceed to this bill is voting for a government takeover of health care. Senators who hide behind procedure and claim they just want to allow for debate are not being honest, they are trying to deceive their voters while helping to pass this terrible bill that will make health care more expensive."

    Let's send a clear message to Senators Lincoln and Nelson and Landrieu and to those RINOs who may be willing to make deals with Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

    Let them know that you are not fooled and that you expect them to support a filibuster of ObamaCare.

    Harry Reid still needs 60 votes to pass ObamaCare. Make your voice heard now, and you can deny him those votes.

    Use the button below to send your urgent faxes to each and every Republican Member of the United States Senate as well as Senators Blanche Lincoln, Joseph Lieberman, Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu (key Democrat Senators who are sitting on the fence).

    Taking A Page From Pelosi's Book...

    Prior to the hasty Saturday vote, Harry Reid drafted this latest version of ObamaCare in secret... behind closed doors.

    Just prior to the vote, on Wednesday evening, he finally released his 2,076 page monster. Up until that point, only a select number of Senators had even seen the bill.

    2076 pages.... Senator Tom Coburn said, it would take 34 hours to simply read the bill and yet Harry Reid pushed for a vote to occur with 72 hours of releasing the bill.

    Harry Reid showed a lot of nerve (and that's an understatement)... in calling for that Saturday vote.

    And Ben Nelson, Blanche Lincoln and Mary Landrieu showed a lot of nerve in voting to allow Reid's version of ObamaCare to come to the floor of the Senate.

    This evil bill must be stopped... and this evil bill can be stopped... if we act right now.

    Use the button below to send your urgent faxes to each and every Republican Member of the United States Senate as well as Senators Blanche Lincoln, Joseph Lieberman, Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu (key Democrat Senators who are sitting on the fence).

    ObamaCare Is Not About Health Care... It's About Your Way Of Life... It's About Making You A Slave To An Out-Of-Control Government.

    Ronald Reagan said as much almost 50 years ago.

    Under the banner of a campaign called Operation Coffee Cup Reagan said; "One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine."

    But Reagan didn't stop there. He also spoke of how socialized health care threatens many of the freedoms we take for granted:

    "The doctor begins to lose freedom.... First you decide that the doctor can have so many patients. They are equally divided among the various doctors by the government. But then doctors aren’t equally divided geographically. So a doctor decides he wants to practice in one town and the government has to say to him, you can't live in that town. They already have enough doctors. You have to go someplace else. And from here it's only a short step to dictating where he will go."

    And Reagan told us what would happen next:

    "All of us can see what happens once you establish the precedent that the government can determine a man's working place and his working methods, determine his employment. From here it's a short step to all the rest of socialism, to determining his pay. And pretty soon your son won't decide when he's in school, where he will go or what he will do for a living. He will wait for the government to tell him where he will go to work and what he will do."

    And Reagan told us the shocking price of not taking action:

    "And if you don't do this and if I don't do it, one of these days you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children, and our children's children, what it once was like in America when men were free."

    Reagan's words are as true today as they were back then.

    This so-called move to radically change our health care system has nothing to do with making health care more accessible, more available and more affordable. It's about politicians in Washington controlling your life... it's about eradicating your freedoms.

    Now is the time to make a choice. You can be content with telling your children and grandchildren "what it once was like in America when men were free."

    Or... you can stand for freedom... demand that our elected officials vote "no" on Reid's motion to proceed... and kill this evil legislation once and for all.

    And if you choose freedom, then the time to act is now because our best hope to stop ObamaCare will occur mere hours from now.

    Use the button below to send your urgent faxes to each and every Republican Member of the United States Senate as well as Senators Blanche Lincoln, Joseph Lieberman, Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu (key Democrat Senators who are sitting on the fence).

    Let them know that the American people were not fooled or deceived by that hasty Saturday vote. Let them know that you consider the vote on the motion to proceed on ObamaCare to be a vote in favor of ObamaCare.

    Anti-gun ObamaCare at a Crossroads:
    Passage or defeat will depend on whether Senate Republicans pursue a smart or stupid strategy

    The spectacle on the Senate floor -- in connection with the anti-gun ObamaCare bill -- is disgusting. The Senate is debating socialized health care right now, and some Republicans may be ready to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    This alert is long, but it is necessarily so. Here's the situation as it stands right now on the Senate floor:

    * Harry Reid is pushing a $3 trillion bill with over $500 billion in new deficits. But he is trying to conceal the deficits with accounting fraud on a scale which would put anyone else in prison for the rest of his life.

    * Reid's bill would restructure the American economy in a way that has not been seen at any time during our lifetimes -- but is being shoved down the throats of the American people before they can even comprehend the magnitude of the problem.

    * Harry Reid took six weeks to write his legislation behind closed doors, but is trying to force the Senate to pass the bill in no time at all. FYI, the Constitution envisions an important role for the U.S. Senate in crafting legislation, but nowhere mentions Reid's "secret" meetings to coerce and bribe senators.

    "Okay, okay" you say. The fact that Harry Reid comes across as a lying politician is not news. But there is another problem: Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has adopted a losing strategy that will, unfortunately, help speed up the passage of Harry Reid's anti-gun health care bill.

    The Senate can do little without every senator agreeing to do it -- or at least not objecting to its being done. Hence, you hear about "unanimous consent requests." This means that every senator agrees to considering a particular amendment or, at least, to voting on it at a particular time.

    The thing about these requests is this: They almost always make it easier for the bill to pass.

    Hence, we are at the point where WE SHOULD STOP ALL UNANIMOUS CONSENT AGREEMENTS TO FURTHER REID'S HEALTH CARE FREIGHT TRAIN. And a single senator can do this by simply saying: "I object."

    But instead, Mitch McConnell has already started allowing amendments to be offered which will let the Senate Democrats "clean up" the bill ... just enough to get it passed by the Senate.

    We need to stop this sort of deal making. We need to stop these requests which grease the skids for Harry Reid's freight train.

    And, in particular, we don't want to clean up this diabolical monstrosity. We want to kill it.

    So our message? Kill the bill. Kill the bill. Kill the bill.

    AND NO MORE UNANIOMOUS CONSENT AGREEMENTS TO FACILITATE THAT BILL'S PASSAGE.

    We don't want Mitch McConnell to try to make himself look good by pretending to be a "non-obstructionist." We want Senate Republicans to move heaven and earth to protect Americans from Harry Reid's scheme of bribery, fraud and dirty politics.

    ACTION: Contact your two U.S. Senators. Tell them to object to any further Unanimous Consent agreements to further the ObamaCare freight train.

    You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send a pre-written message to your Senators -- the appropriate e-mail will automatically be sent to your Senator, based on whether he is a Republican or Democrat.

    ----- Pre-written letter for Republican Senators -----

    Dear Senator:

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has agreed to Unanimous Consent agreements which allow for amendments to be offered to ObamaCare -- a strategy that will, unfortunately, have the effect of providing Democrats just enough votes to "clean up" this anti-gun bill and get it passed.

    We need to stop this sort of request which helps grease the skids for Harry Reid's freight train.

    And, in particular, I don't want to see this diabolical monstrosity cleaned up in a way that makes the bill just "good enough" to get 60 votes. This bill would restructure the American economy in a way that has not been seen at any time during our lifetime. I want to see this bill killed outright.

    So my message? Kill the bill. Kill the bill. Kill the bill. NO MORE UNANIOMOUS CONSENT AGREEMENTS TO FACILITATE THAT BILL'S PASSAGE.

    I don't want Mitch McConnell to try to make Republicans look good by pretending to be "non-obstructionist." I want Senate Republicans to move heaven and earth to protect Americans from Harry Reid's socialist scheme.

    Sincerely,

    ----- Pre-written letter for Democrat Senators -----

    Dear Senator:

    The spectacle on the Senate floor -- in connection with ObamaCare -- is disgusting:

    The spectacle on the Senate floor -- in connection with the anti-gun ObamaCare bill -- is disgusting. The Senate is debating socialized health care right now, and some Republicans may be ready to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    This alert is long, but it is necessarily so. Here's the situation as it stands right now on the Senate floor:

    * Harry Reid is pushing a $3 trillion bill with over $500 billion in new deficits. But he is trying to conceal the deficits with accounting fraud on a scale which would put anyone else in prison for the rest of his life.

    * Reid's bill would restructure the American economy in a way that has not been seen at any time during our lifetimes -- but is being shoved down the throats of the American people before they can even comprehend the magnitude of the problem.

    * Harry Reid took six weeks to write his legislation behind closed doors, but is trying to force the Senate to pass the bill in no time at all. FYI, the Constitution envisions an important role for the U.S. Senate in crafting legislation, but nowhere mentions Reid's "secret" meetings to coerce and bribe senators.

    "Okay, okay" you say. The fact that Harry Reid comes across as a lying politician is not news. But there is another problem: Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has adopted a losing strategy that will, unfortunately, help speed up the passage of Harry Reid's anti-gun health care bill.

    The Senate can do little without every senator agreeing to do it -- or at least not objecting to its being done. Hence, you hear about "unanimous consent requests." This means that every senator agrees to considering a particular amendment or, at least, to voting on it at a particular time.

    The thing about these requests is this: They almost always make it easier for the bill to pass.

    Hence, we are at the point where WE SHOULD STOP ALL UNANIMOUS CONSENT AGREEMENTS TO FURTHER REID'S HEALTH CARE FREIGHT TRAIN. And a single senator can do this by simply saying: "I object."

    But instead, Mitch McConnell has already started allowing amendments to be offered which will let the Senate Democrats "clean up" the bill ... just enough to get it passed by the Senate.

    We need to stop this sort of deal making. We need to stop these requests which grease the skids for Harry Reid's freight train.

    And, in particular, we don't want to clean up this diabolical monstrosity. We want to kill it.

    So our message? Kill the bill. Kill the bill. Kill the bill.

    AND NO MORE UNANIOMOUS CONSENT AGREEMENTS TO FACILITATE THAT BILL'S PASSAGE.

    We don't want Mitch McConnell to try to make himself look good by pretending to be a "non-obstructionist." We want Senate Republicans to move heaven and earth to protect Americans from Harry Reid's scheme of bribery, fraud and dirty politics.

    ACTION: Contact your two U.S. Senators. Tell them to object to any further Unanimous Consent agreements to further the ObamaCare freight train.

    You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send a pre-written message to your Senators -- the appropriate e-mail will automatically be sent to your Senator, based on whether he is a Republican or Democrat.

    ----- Pre-written letter for Republican Senators -----

    Dear Senator:

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has agreed to Unanimous Consent agreements which allow for amendments to be offered to ObamaCare -- a strategy that will, unfortunately, have the effect of providing Democrats just enough votes to "clean up" this anti-gun bill and get it passed.

    We need to stop this sort of request which helps grease the skids for Harry Reid's freight train.

    And, in particular, I don't want to see this diabolical monstrosity cleaned up in a way that makes the bill just "good enough" to get 60 votes. This bill would restructure the American economy in a way that has not been seen at any time during our lifetime. I want to see this bill killed outright.

    So my message? Kill the bill. Kill the bill. Kill the bill. NO MORE UNANIOMOUS CONSENT AGREEMENTS TO FACILITATE THAT BILL'S PASSAGE.

    I don't want Mitch McConnell to try to make Republicans look good by pretending to be "non-obstructionist." I want Senate Republicans to move heaven and earth to protect Americans from Harry Reid's socialist scheme.

    Sincerely,

    ----- Pre-written letter for Democrat Senators -----

  10. I think when they pass the crapp I will tell them I not buying their insurance and let them put me in jail. Being over sixty-five I had a good life. If I go to jail who will be the losers. All my worries will be gone. I will have free housing, free food, and free health care. How do you like me now.

    "
    A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:


    • From bondage to spiritual faith;
    • From spiritual faith to great courage;
    • From courage to liberty;
    • From liberty to abundance;
    • From abundance to complacency;
    • From complacency to apathy;
    • From apathy to dependence;
    • From dependence back into bondage. (WE ARE JUST ABOUT HERE!)
