    ObamaCare Has Revealed The Moral Bankruptcy Of The Senate
    -- It's time for us for to repeat this loudly and often

    Thursday, January 7, 2010

    Here's where we're at on socialized health care. The House and Senate have passed ObamaCare bills, but the two versions are very different. So, the bill can't go to the President until they iron out the differences.

    Make no mistake about it. This legislation moves us down the road towards socialism, and it will result in even more gun owners being disqualified from owning firearms.

    We need to regroup and renew our efforts to kill ObamaCare -- an outcome which is still very doable.

    Now, repeat this phrase over and over: A MORAL CESSPOOL.

    If we are going to defeat the anti-gun ObamaCare legislation, these words are going to have to be repeated millions of times over the next month.

    The U.S. Senate has become a moral cesspool.

    The U.S. Senate has become a moral cesspool.

    The U.S. Senate has become a moral cesspool.

    Why is this refrain so important? There are several reasons why, but consider this: Throughout this fight over ObamaCare, Senators have lied about guns... they've lied about the deficit... they've lied about the costs of health insurance premiums and how the bill will affect senior citizens. They have lied over and over to their constituents about all these issues.

    That's why it's time that we tell Democrat Senators how corrupt their vote for ObamaCare really was. Obviously, they won't agree. So let each Senator make the argument that, "I am not a crook."

    That argument never wins elections.

    Already, Democrat Representatives and Senators are either switching parties or announcing their retirements. They know the American people are disgusted with the moral bankruptcy of the U.S. Congress -- a situation that has become obvious to anyone who watches the nightly news.

    Consider the following despicable practices which were perpetrated in order to push ObamaCare through the Senate last month:

    1. Lies

    * For months, Senators claimed there were no anti-gun provisions in the ObamaCare legislation. But everyone knew they were lying. So last month, a provision was inserted into the Senate bill which claims to allay the concerns of gun owners -- but leaves the most important problem unremedied. If they weren't lying to begin with, then why try to fix what they claimed wasn't there?

    * Senators are now insisting that the current Senate health bill protects the rights of gun owners, even though this version would still allow the BATFE and FBI to troll through the ObamaCare database for gun owners who would be disqualified because of their medical information. This could result in millions of Americans -- who are suffering from PTSD and other similar conditions -- being put into the NICS system and denied the right to buy firearms.

    2. Bribes

    * A $100 million bribe to treat Sen. Ben Nelson's state different from all others, in exchange for Ben Nelson's vote.

    * A $100-300 million bribe to treat Sen. Mary Landrieu's state different from all others, in exchange for Mary Landrieu's vote.

    * $10 billion for community health centers operated by groups similar to ACORN, in exchange for Sen. Bernie Sanders' vote.

    * A bribe to Sen. Max Baucus in order to treat Libby, Montana, different from any other town.

    * A bribe to Sen. Chris Dodd consisting of a $100 million medical center in Connecticut.

    * Bribes to Sens. Kent Conrad, Brian Dorgan, Bill Nelson, etc., etc., etc.

    * In fact, there are so many bribes in the Senate version of the ObamaCare bill that the bribe-meister himself, Majority Leader Harry Reid, publicly bragged that if your senator doesn't have a bribe in this bill, it "speaks poorly" of him.

    3. Extortion

    * Threats to take away Sen. Joe Lieberman's chairmanship because of his opposition to the government run "public option."

    4. Fraud

    * Senators are claiming that the Senate-passed version reduces the deficit, even though:

    a. $247 billion of the bill's costs are being snuck through in separate legislation;

    b. The "savings" rely on $465 billion of Medicare "cuts," which no one believed were achievable; and

    c. The "savings" rely on making new taxes take effect 3-5 years before any of those tax monies are spent.

    * Senators are claiming that the bill would make Medicare solvent -- but this claim can only be made by fraudulently double-counting the effects of the phony Medicare cuts.

    * Senators are claiming that health care costs would be brought under control, when the government's own Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services found that costs would go up $245 billion.

    * Senators are claiming that premiums would be brought under control, even though the Congressional Budget Office found that policies under the "exchange" (i.e., those policies which you would have to buy, under penalty of law) would be 10-13% more expensive than if Congress did nothing.

    5. Secrecy

    * The final version of the 2407-page bill wasn't revealed until less than 48 hours before Congress began voting on it.

    Now that the Christmas holidays are behind us, we need to get back to work. Please take the time to contact your Senator, so that we can protect the rights of gun owners by defeating socialized medicine.

    ACTION: Over the next month, the term "moral cesspool" needs to become part of the political lexicon. Below, you will find that two sample communications are attached -- one for Democrat Senators, the other for Republicans.

    So please send your letter, and then get your relatives, your friends, your neighbors, your gun clubs, churches, etc., to do the same.

    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 or she is a Republican or Democrat.

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

    Dear Senator:

    The U.S. Senate has become a moral cesspool, and you need to begin doing something about it before this whole country is sacrificed on the altar of the Senate's moral decay.

    I am disgusted with the lies, bribes, and fraud which you have advocated by voting for the Senate ObamaCare legislation:

    * Millions of American taxpayer dollars were spent in the states of Ben Nelson, Mary Landrieu and Chris Dodd to obtain their votes. In fact, so many bribes were shelled out that the chief bribe-meister, Harry Reid, publicly bragged that if a senator doesn't have a bribe in this bill, it "speaks poorly" of him.

    * The Senate bill was passed on the claim that the Reid bill reduces the deficit, even though:

    a. $247 billion of the bill's costs are being snuck through in separate legislation;

    b. The "savings" rely on $465 billion of Medicare "cuts," which no one believed were achievable; and

    c. The "savings" rely on making new taxes take effect 3-5 years before any of those tax monies are spent.

    * Senators claimed that health care costs would be brought under control, when the government's own Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services found that costs would go up $245 billion.

    * Senators also claimed that premiums would be brought under control, even though the Congressional Budget Office found that policies under the "exchange" (i.e., those policies which you would have to buy, under penalty of law) would be 10-13% more expensive than if Congress did nothing.

    There is still time to change course. I implore you to change your vote on ObamaCare.

    Sincerely,

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

    Dear Senator:

    Thank you for voting against the ObamaCare fiasco.

    For months, Senators claimed there were no anti-gun provisions in the ObamaCare legislation. But everyone knew they were lying. So last month, a provision was inserted into the Senate bill which claims to allay the concerns of gun owners -- but leaves the most important problem unremedied.

    Some Democrat Senators are now claiming that the current Senate health bill protects the rights of gun owners, even though this version would still allow the BATFE and FBI to troll through the ObamaCare database for gun owners who would be disqualified because of their medical information. This could result in millions of Americans -- who are suffering from PTSD and other similar conditions -- being put into the NICS system and denied the right to buy firearms.

    Bottom line: Please do everything in your power to kill the ObamaCare legislation. What can you, as a senator, do about this?

    Please take away the incentive that the suicidal Democrats have for selling their votes on ObamaCare for posh nominations in the Obama administration after they are defeated at the polls or retire.

    You can do this by announcing you will place a "hold" on the nominations of Blanche Lincoln, Evan Bayh, Chris Dodd, Brian Dorgan, and Michael Bennet -- nominations which will inevitably be made next year as a payoff for their votes on behalf of ObamaCare.

    It's time that the bribes stopped, and you can make this happen.

    Sincerely,


    Second Amendment March

    Larry Pratt, GOA's Executive Director, will be speaking at the Second Amendment March. The March will take place April 19, 2010 in Washington, DC. All gun rights supporters are urged to attend this massive, free event. Satellite marches are also being planned for state capitals around the country.

    Once again I have to humbly apologize for the actions of Michigan's Senators and the disgrace they bring on America and to the Constitution of the United States of America.

    Dear Mr. xxxxxx:

    Thank you for contacting me regarding health care reform. I appreciate hearing from you. I have long supported the goal of ensuring that all Americans have access to stable, reliable, and affordable health care.

    On December 24, 2009, the Senate passed a health care reform bill (H.R.3590) that will strengthen America’s health care system by preserving personal choice, ensuring people can keep their health insurance, and reducing cost through competition. This bill will eliminate existing insurance company practices that discriminate against those with pre-existing conditions, and that impose annual and lifetime limits on benefits. These limits on benefits have allowed insurance companies to deny coverage for an individual’s medical treatment if that treatment is too costly. In addition, this legislation will reduce waste and fraud in the health care system, and reinvest those savings to strengthen that system.

    Furthermore, this bill contains provisions to strengthen Medicare by giving seniors access to important preventive services that they otherwise may not be able to afford. In addition, for seniors, this bill will reduce the Medicare doughnut hole, a gap in prescription drug coverage I hope we are able to eventually close altogether.

    Small businesses that are struggling to get a handle on ever increasing health care insurance costs also will benefit from this bill. Beginning in 2010, small businesses will receive a tax credit of up to 35% of their costs for insuring their employees and their employees’ families. In 2014 and beyond, the tax credit can be as much as 50% of an employer’s costs for covering employees and their families. These credits will encourage small businesses, which are the backbone of our economy, to provide health care insurance coverage.

    On November 16, 2009, the House of Representatives passed its version of health care reform legislation. I hope the Senate and House health care reform bills can be quickly reconciled, allowing Congress and the President to enact vital health care reforms.

    My full floor statement from the Senate debate, which highlights many other provisions in the bill, can be found on my website at [http://levin.senate.gov].

    Again, thank you again for contacting me.

    Sincerely,
    Carl Levin

    Union members will be exempt from excise tax on their health insurance plans

    Breaking News: deal reached on key health care component Row 2, Seat 4

    Breaking News: deal reached on key health care component

    Major Garrett reports that the White House has reached a deal with the House and Senate on a key provision of the health care reform bill.

    The agreement involves an excise tax on so-called "cadillac plans" that was a contentious issue for labor unions. White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said it will "improve the core goal" of applying "downward pressure on long-term health care costs."

    Comments by CW&A: This is nothing more than an exemption for Union members who do have excellent health insurance plans (referred to by Congress as "Cadillac plans"). My questions is: Why was B.O. so receptive to the demands of a few Union leaders but turned a deaf ear to over a million healthcare reform protestors who marched on D. C. on September 12, 2009? For some reason, he must believe that he needs those few more than he needs us.

    Hi!

    Massachusetts just completed a historic election that pundits are
    saying was in many ways a referendum on Congress' plan to
    legislate government healthcare.

    I just took part as well by using Grassfire Nation's free service to
    send a "Healthcare Ballot" to my two Senators and my
    Representative. My personalized ballot says"

    "Vote for ObamaCare and I'll vote you out!"

    My ballots will be hand-delivered before the anticipated final
    votes in Congress on government healthcare.

    Go here to schedule delivery of your "Healthcare Ballots":


    Grassfire Nation

    Thanks!
