    House ObamaCare Vote Imminent This Weekend





    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to ram ObamaCare down the throats of the American people this week. In fact, she is forcing a full House vote on her government-run health care plan in just a matter of days, or even hours (depending on when you read this letter), without allowing any substantive debate.

    Pelosi has literally taken off the gloves… and she must be stopped.

    As Congressman Tom Price, who happens to know a little something about health care as he’s also one of the few doctors in Congress, recently said:

    "Your concerns about a government takeover of health care have been totally ignored by Speaker Pelosi and her allies, who worked behind closed doors to write the bill. After months of debate, the bill they introduced today is essentially the same bill the American people have flat-out rejected."

    Truth be told, Congressman Price’s words were tempered when you consider the reality of what’s really happening in Washington. Pelosi's latest incarnation of ObamaCare - dubiously titled the “Affordable Health Care for America Act,” (H.R. 3962)
    is not merely "the same bill the American people have flat-out rejected"...

    ...It's actually far worse.

    At nearly 2,000 pages, it's almost twice the size of Pelosi’s first bill (H.R. 3200) and includes even more of what the American people have already flat-out rejected.

    And make no mistake, Pelosi’s plan to ram this latest version of ObamaCare down the throats of the American people with lightning speed is no accident … it’s a calculated political move to try to passObamaCare before you and millions of other concerned Americans have a chance to once again rally against it.

    We can’t let her get away with it.

    Congressman Price observed, the "future of American health care is in the balance and we are on the clock." He’ right.

    How we, the American people, respond right here and right now will determine the fate of health care in this country forever. We can stop this government takeover of health care, but the time to make our voices heard is now.

    Use the button below to send your urgent and personalized Blast Faxes to Barack Obama and the Leadership of the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. Or alternately, you can send your urgent and personalized Blast Faxes to Barack Obama and each and every Member of the House and Senate... that's over 500 Blast Faxes.

    Tell them that Nancy Pelosi's latest incarnation of ObamaCare must be defeated. Tell them you are sick and tired of the repeated attempts by liberals in Congress and the Obama Administration to craft egregious “reform” proposals behind closed doors, market that legislation to the American people as something that it is not and then try to ram that legislation through Congress before anyone is any the wiser.

    Demand, once and for all, that they stop the deceptions... the secret meetings... the legislative chicanery... the procedural tricks... the dark-of-night votes... the outright lies. Demand that they scrap ObamaCare once and for all and start over with measures that will actually make health care more accessible and affordable to Americans. Demand they defeat H.R. 3962.

    Pelosi’s Bill Is Even Worse Than You Think.
    Everything that was intolerable in the first House health care bill (H.R. 3200), is still in the second incarnation (H.R. 3962).

    Congressman Price again:

    "Government-run insurance? Still in the bill. Higher taxes? You betcha. An individual mandate that restricts choices and innovation by requiring Washington to define what qualifies as health insurance? Check. A job-killing employer mandate, a budget-busting expansion of the Medicaid entitlement, and countless provisions that set Washington bureaucrats firmly between you and your doctor? Better believe it."

    Price adds:

    "H.R. 3962 has all the 'government takeover' of H.R. 3200 with an extra thousand pages thrown into the mix. That's a whole lot of government involvement in personal, private health care decisions."

    As if that’s not enough, here, courtesy of Congressman Mike Pence's House Republican Conference, are just a few more goodies Pelosi threw into H.R. 3962:

    Page 111 - Section 223 establishes a new board of federal bureaucrats (the “Health Benefits Advisory Committee”) to dictate the health plans that all individuals must purchase.

    Page 211 - Section 321 establishes a new government-run health plan that, according to non-partisan actuaries at the Lewin Group, would cause as many as 114 million Americans to lose their existing coverage.

    Page 297 - Section 501 imposes a 2.5 percent tax on all individuals who do not purchase “bureaucrat-approved” health insurance - the tax would apply on individuals with incomes under $250,000, thus breaking a central promise of then-Senator Obama’s presidential campaign.

    Do you believe Pelosi and Obama when they say “if you like your plan you can keep your plan” … that you ultimately won’t be forced to live with government-run insurance?

    Check out this provision…

    Page 94 - Section 202(c) prohibits the sale of private individual health insurance policies, beginning in 2013, forcing individuals to purchase coverage through the federal government.

    Of course, Members of Congress and their family members need not worry about how this radical overhaul of our nation's health care will affect them because...

    Page 225 - Section 330 permits—but does not require—Members of Congress to enroll in government-run health care.

    Here Are A Few More Little Nasties In Pelosi’s H.R. 3962.
    We're not finished. It would be impossible to mention every egregious provision in Pelosi’s 1,990 page bill, but here are a few more notables... just in case your blood isn’t already boiling.
    Page 110 - Section 222(e) requires the use of federal dollars to fund abortions through the government-run health plan—and, if the Hyde Amendment were ever not renewed, would require the plan to fund elective abortions.

    Page 313 - Section 512 imposes an 8 percent “tax on jobs” for firms that cannot afford to purchase “bureaucrat-approved” health coverage; according to an analysis by Harvard Professor Kate Baicker, such a tax would place millions “at substantial risk of unemployment”—with minority workers losing their jobs at twice the rate of their white counterparts.

    Page 336 - Section 551 imposes additional job-killing taxes, in the form of a half-trillion dollar “surcharge,” more than half of which will hit small businesses; according to a model developed by President Obama’s senior economic advisor, such taxes could cost up to 5.5 million jobs.

    Page 520 - Section 1161 cuts more than 150 billion [dollars] from Medicare Advantage plans, potentially jeopardizing millions of seniors’ existing coverage.

    Page 733 - Section 1401 establishes a new Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research; the bill includes no provisions preventing the government-run health plan from using such research to deny access to life-saving treatments on cost grounds, similar to Britain’s National Health Service, which denies patient treatments costing more than 35,000 [pounds].

    And last, but certainly not least:

    Page 1174 - Section 1802(b) includes provisions entitled 'Taxes On Certain Insurance Policies' to fund comparative effectiveness research, breaking Speaker Pelosi’s promise that 'We will not be taxing [health] benefits in any bill that passes the House,' and the President’s promise not to raise taxes on families with incomes under 250,000 [dollars].

    "The Worst Bill Ever: Epic New Spending And Taxes, Pricier Insurance, Rationed Care, Dishonest Accounting: The Pelosi Health Bill Has It All."
    That's what the Wall Street Journal had to say about H.R. 3962. But that's not all the Journal said:

    "The health bill she [Pelosi] unwrapped last Thursday, which President Obama hailed as a 'critical milestone,' may well be the worst piece of post-New Deal legislation ever introduced."

    Here's a scary prognosis:

    "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."

    The Journal also writes:

    "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."

    That last paragraph gives us valuable insight as to exactly how we can stop these idiotic leftist health care schemes once and for all.

    Extreme liberals in the House and the Senate, as well as Barack Obama, are indeed racing against their rising unpopularity.

    And health care will only be passed if these extreme liberals can make false and empty promises and ram legislation through Congress before the American people realize they are being duped.

    That's been their plan of action with each and every previous incarnation of ObamaCare and that is still their plan today.

    Pelosi and her allies in Congress forgot long ago that they serve the American people… that they work for you.

    And they weren't exactly thrilled when the American people soundly rejected their first health care “reform” scam.

    So now, instead of heeding the will of the people, they’ve decided to take off the gloves.

    It's almost as if they're saying; Oh... so you (the American people) didn't like our first health care offering... fine... we'll show you who's boss... let's see how you like what we're going to ram down your throats now.

    But you can stop them... you can make a difference ... you've already made a huge difference.

    Your Blast Faxes and phone calls were the reason the Pelosi-Reid Congress had to put the brakes on each and every previous incarnation of ObamaCare.

    You made a difference then and you can make a difference right now.

    With this latest bill, Pelosi, Obama and Reid are hoping that the American people are tired… that you will give up on this fight. Let’s prove them wrong.

    Let's put a lid on this scheme once and for all.

    The time to speak up is now.

    House Vote On ObamaCare Imminent This Saturday

    OPPOSE H.R. 3962

    Pelosi Mandated House Vote On ObamaCare Imminent This Saturday!!!

    From the Desk of:
    Steve Elliott, President, Grassfire.org Alliance


    "Today is 'House Call' day on Capitol Hill, and I'm counting
    on the Grassfire team to make at least ONE MILLION CITIZEN
    CONTACTS to members of Congress opposing ObamaCare. Please
    see my important action items below and take immediate
    action" --Steve


    Concerned Citizen,

    Tens of thousands of angry Americans are descending on Washington,
    D.C. today to make "House Calls" on their representatives, and
    Grassfire will again be front and center, and counting on you
    to make a powerful and lasting impact as the health care debate
    draws to a conclusion!

    Concerned Citizen, we've received word that Nancy Pelosi has started her
    72-hour countdown clock and cleared the way for votes on Saturday!

    That's why the events of today (Thursday) are so important,
    and why I'm calling on you to help me drive the Grassfire
    team to make at least ONE MILLION CITIZEN CONTACTS to
    members of Congress today!

    As I write this update, Capitol couriers are on high alert
    --standing at the ready while our printer is churning out
    nearly 640,000 petitions, and tens of thousands of personalized
    letters--all to be delivered today opposing the government
    takeover of our health care system!

    Additionally, we are also taking fax orders today for fast delivery.
    Concerned Citizen, if you haven't yet scheduled your faxes to key members
    of the House, click here now:

    http://www.grassfire.org/

    ++ Make a House Call Without Leaving Your House!

    We understand that millions of citizens opposing ObamaCare cannot
    make it to Washington, D.C. today--but here's how you can still
    make an incredible last-minute impact on this debate!

    Call your two Senators and Congressman right now!

    Let your lawmakers know that you oppose this government takeover
    of our health care, and urge them to do the same.

    Here's your contact information:
    Representative Offices - United States House of Representatives, 111th Congress, 1st Session

    Call (202) 224-3121 for the U.S. House of Representatives switchboard operator.

    Again, let each know that you object to this outrageous scheme of
    the government to seize more control over our lives!

    Let them know you oppose the dramatic increase of taxes, rationing
    and loss of control over our personal health care decisions!

    After making your calls, forward this message to 30-40
    friends urging them to follow your lead. If your friends
    live in another district or area, encourage them to call
    the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 to be quickly
    connected to their lawmakers.

    Again, with your help right now and throughout this important day,
    we can make at least ONE MILLION CITIZEN CONTACTS to lawmakers--
    opposing ObamaCare.

    As Congressman Steve King said earlier today, "For liberals this
    legislation is the crown jewel of their socialist agenda [that]
    will place bureaucrats between patients and doctors, fund
    abortion with taxpayer dollars, raise taxes... and make millions
    reliant on the government for health services that should be
    personal and private...

    I'm counting on you to make a big impact to keep this from
    happening to our nation and its people!

    Thank you in advance for all you are doing.

    Steve Elliott, President
    Grassfire.org

    Representative Offices - United States House of Representatives, 111th Congress, 1st Session

    Call (202) 224-3121 for the U.S. House of Representatives switchboard operator.

    Alerting a few additional friends...

    Kill ObamaCare In The Senate - Then Fire Congress

    Congress was sent to Washington to repeal Unconstitutional Laws, not create them. The Federal Government, including Congress & the Executive branch have no authority granted them under the Constitution to get involved in such private matters as health care or any other entitlement program for that matter...

    Folks the time for Closet Conservatism is OVER...

    Time to take a side and get involved and educate those around you and encourage them to do the same...

    From the Desk of:
    Steve Elliott, President, Grassfire.org Alliance

    Concerned Citizen,

    Late Saturday night, Democrats narrowly passed what Rush
    Limbaugh has dubbed "The Saturday Night Massacre,"
    legislation that would cost the American public $3
    trillion over the next decade; and would see 90 million
    Americans lose their private insurance...

    and that's just for starters...

    I've just recorded a very special audio update with Ron
    De Jong, Grassfire's Director of Communications that
    focuses on the impact this legislation could have on you
    and your family.

    Click here to listen to our exclusive audio report:

    http://www.grassfire.org/

    + + A Grassroots Victory?

    Some may call me crazy for suggesting that what happened on
    Saturday could be anything but a horrific blow against the
    American people and the very foundation of our nation...

    but I see it differently.

    I see this as a victory because had it not been for you, Concerned Citizen,
    and hundreds of thousands of patriots just like you, this
    vote would have happened in late July!

    Intense, mounting pressure from those Obama mockingly refers
    to as "tea bag, anti-government people," pushed this vote four
    additional months, and at a tremendous political toll...

    Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Harry Reid (The Three Stooges) and others threatened, bartered, bribed and intimidated all in hopes of garnering enough support...

    ..they may have won this battle, but with your continued
    support, we will win the war!

    Concerned Citizen, after listening to our short audio update,
    pass it on to 25-30 friends and family members encouraging
    them to listen and then sign our petition opposing ObamaCare,
    and everything that it represents by clicking here:

    http://www.grassfire.org/

    Keep in mind that during our last petition delivery to Capitol
    Hill this past Thursday, we represented more than 630,000
    signers, meaning we need slightly more than 100,000 signers
    to reach three-quarters of a million citizens who oppose ObamaCare!

    I am encouraged by what took place on Saturday, and I'm
    actually excited for the future of our nation. With your help
    in the days and weeks ahead, we most certainly will win this battle.

    Steve Elliott, President
    Grassfire.org

    P.S: Again pass this important message and audio update to
    your friends right now--urging them to take immediate action as
    we push toward our goal of 750,000 petition signers.

    Have them visit the following to sign our petition and make an impact:

    ObamaCare Pelosi "puppets" stab gun owners in the back

    We Came Heartbreakingly Close to Killing ObamaCare in the House
    -- Pelosi "puppets" stab gun owners in the back

    Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert
    8001 Forbes Place, Suite 102, Springfield, VA 22151
    Phone: 703-321-8585 / FAX: 703-321-8408
    http://www.gunowners.org

    Tuesday, November 10, 2009

    It would have been nice if we were celebrating victory on ObamaCare today -- and could turn our attention to other issues.

    This was not to be, however, thanks to House Democrats who campaigned as "moderates," but in the end, danced at the end of Nancy Pelosi's strings.

    Saturday, the House passed ObamaCare by a 220-215 vote. The bill now goes to the Senate, where South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham -- hardly a staunch conservative -- has pronounced it "dead on arrival."

    We remain convinced that we can and will kill ObamaCare, but only if the grassroots keep the pressure on.

    ACTION: Write your Representative. Thank him -- or reprimand him/her -- for his/her vote on ObamaCare.

    You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send a pre-written message to your Representative -- the appropriate e-mail will automatically be sent, based on how your Representative voted.

    To see the official listing of how each Representative voted, you can go to http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2009/roll887.xml .

    ----- Pre-written letter to Representatives voting pro-gun -----

    Dear Representative:

    While I was very disappointed to see that ObamaCare passed, I want to thank you for your vote against the bill.

    Even still, I am disturbed by the games the House leadership has been playing. The press has widely reported that Nancy Pelosi had given "byes" to a number of moderate Democrats, who would have voted for ObamaCare had their votes been needed.

    I find it disgusting that there are Representatives who voted "no" on the bill, but were waiting in the wings to vote "yes if their support was needed. After all, this legislation is built upon several lies:

    * It was a lie that this $1.2 trillion bill came in under $900 billion and that it will not increase the deficit, once you consider the $210-247 billion companion bill Pelosi's trying to sneak through quietly.

    * It was a lie that this bill will not raise taxes on the middle class -- with $160 billion in tax penalties and taxes on everything from wheelchairs to artificial limbs -- and that Americans will be able to keep the coverage they currently have under this bill.

    * And it is a lie that supporters care anything about the Second Amendment, given their support of an ObamaCare bill which would put health-related gun information into a federal registry -- and would allow Obama to use insurance to go against gun owners, as State Farm and Prudential have done in the past.

    I hope that you will continue to vote against this bill if it comes before you again.

    Sincerely,
    yournamehere

    ---- Pre-written letter to Representatives voting anti-gun ----

    Dear Representative:

    As far as I'm concerned, your vote for ObamaCare showed you are more interested in dancing at the end of Nancy Pelosi's strings, rather than upholding the Constitution and truly representing your district.

    This legislation is built upon several lies:

    * It was a lie that this $1.2 trillion bill came in under $900 billion and that it will not increase the deficit, once you consider the $210-247 billion companion bill Pelosi's trying to sneak through quietly.

    * It was a lie that this bill will not raise taxes on the middle class -- with $160 billion in tax penalties and taxes on everything from wheelchairs to artificial limbs -- and that Americans will be able to keep the coverage they currently have under this bill.

    * And it is a lie that supporters care anything about the Second Amendment, given their support of an ObamaCare bill which would put health-related gun information into a federal registry -- and would allow Obama to use insurance to go against gun owners, as State Farm and Prudential have done in the past.

    I intend to let everyone I know -- my friends, my family, my church, and coworkers -- that you cannot be trusted.

    Sincerely,
    yournamehere

    I was going to email the pro gun email to both of the Idaho representatives. I went to Walt Minnick's site and clicked on his email me button (with the sample email store safely in the clipboard for easy pasting) and up popped the following.

    I am very interested in hearing your views on issues of importance to you. Due to the large volume of U.S. Mail, email and faxes I receive, I am only able to accept messages from residents of the 1st Congressional District of Idaho. Congressional courtesy dictates that Representatives be given the opportunity to assist their own constituents. If you are a resident of another district, I encourage you to contact your Representative in Congress by clicking the following link to the Write Your Representative Service.
    The form required you to enter your zip code. I guess that I could fudge the zip code, but quite frankly, I am appalled that he will only accept correspondence from those in his district. Is this the norm now?

  8. #67
    Yes, pretty much the norm...

    When I run across those issues, I fax them, and call their local & D.C. offices and snail mail them, and remind them that their vote affects all Americans, and much of their campaign support finances, personal support through phone banking, etc., come from around the Country. Additionally, when they are in my own State I remind them that we are residents of the same state.
    Persistence pays off. Also several of the links I have posted in this thread, will hand deliver our messages to the applicable Congressman on Camera...

    Will will not let them hide any longer...

    Subject: Watch Fox Sunday night

    I think we ALL should watch this. Watch Fox Sunday night. This Sunday at 8:00 pm central 9:00 pm eastern

    It may be that Fox has holding this information back due to the sensitivity of it and out of courtesy. But, Obama has taken on Fox and it appears they are ready to spill the ugly beans of truth about the background of this individual who has had an extremely radical past.

    This Sunday Fox news, is going to air a very important documentary about Barack Obama, Sunday night at 9 P M Eastern.

    The report will go back to Obama's earlier days, showing even then his close ties to radical Marxist professors, friends, spiritual advisers, etc. It will also reveal details about his ties to Rev. Wright for +20 years i.e. how he was participating with this man, and not for the reasons he states!

    Obama to attack guns as public-health threat?
    2nd Amendment advocates worry over opinions of OSHA nominee

    Second Amendment advocates are expressing alarm that the most significant attack on gun rights across the United States in years soon could come in the form of a workplace "safety" regulation under President Obama's nominee to run the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
    Obama has nominated David Michaels, a George Washington University professor and the chief of the Project on Scientific Knowledge and Public Policy, which reportedly partially is funded by George Soros.
    "The controversial OSHA nominee and left-leaning public health advocate also seems to have strong views on firearms," wrote Walter Olson at Overlawyered.com.
    "That's by no means irrelevant to the agenda of an agency like OSHA, because once you start viewing private gun ownership as a public health menace, it begins to seem logical to use the powers of government to urge or even require employers to forbid workers from possessing guns on company premises, up to and including parking lots, ostensibly for the protection of co-workers."
    WND has reported on Obama's czars and has published a Whistleblower magazine issue on the "shadow government" officials gradually being installed in positions of power in Washington.

    Two already have met problems. Green jobs czar Van Jones quit his post after reporting, largely by WND, of his self-described communist beliefs and his belief that the Bush administration was behind the 9/11 attacks. Also, White House communications director Anita Dunn, who launched a verbal assault on Fox News as an "arm" of the GOP, reportedly will step down this month.
    Now comes Michaels, who although he would have to be approved by the U.S. Senate, comes with views that concern Second Amendment advocates.
    Only two years ago, Michaels condemned proposals in Georgia and Florida that would have allowed workers to carry guns to and from their places of work for protection.
    He continued in his 2007 writing to laud the ability of the federal government to respond by creating new laws to ban activities or behaviors.

    David Michaels
    "When the toll of preventable and pointless deaths or injuries from any single event or related events becomes so great, or particular aspects of the story bring it to the public's attention, our nation invariably demands more and stronger regulation, not less," Michaels wrote at the time.
    "We saw this recently with the disaster at West Virginia's Sago Mine, when a mine explosion and failed rescue attempts resulted in the deaths of 14 miners. Within months, Congress passed the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response (MINER) Act," he said.
    "This is not true only of recent times. On the heels of the Elixir Sulfanilamide scandal, in which a medicine manufactured with antifreeze killed scores of children, Congress passed the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938, requiring for the first time that pharmaceutical manufacturers prove the safety of their products before marketing them," he continued.
    "It's hard to count all of the lives that this Act has saved, but one example stands out: The United States avoided the plague of thalidomide-related birth defects that ravaged Europe in the early 1960s as a result of controls granted the FDA under that legislation. A regulatory hero, FDA medical officer Dr. Frances Kelsey, had blocked U.S. licensing of thalidomide on the basis of inadequate safety data," he wrote.
    "In the U.S., we see an average of one gun-related homicide every 45 minutes, or 32 each day," he wrote. "These are usually treated as isolated incidents, until a horrific event like the Virginia Tech massacre reawakens the public and strengthens public health advocates who are attempting to prevent gun violence."
    At RedCounty.com, writer Bryan Myrick noted that the Washington Times has urged the Senate to reject Michaels' nomination.
    "OSHA is an agency that already has a well-earned reputation for abusing its authority and reaching beyond its stated purpose. Add one zealot and it easily becomes an oppressive entity with immense power over all American businesses, large and small. At a time in which America's businesses desperately need the freedom to responsibly pursue earning profits and put workers back on the payroll, the chemical potency of combining Obama's left-wing agenda with an anti-business zealot manager at OSHA could prove toxic," Myrick wrote.
    The first vote on Michaels' nomination already was canceled by the Senate Committee on Health, Labor, Education and Pensions.
    At the Examiner, gun rights writer David Codrea warned that some "public health" excuse could be used for imposing draconian restrictions on gun owners.
    He cited the comment from a director of the CDC's National Center for Injury Control and Prevention that, "We need to revolutionize the way we look at guns, like what we did with cigarettes. Now it [sic] is dirty, deadly, and banned."
    "Does anyone doubt that Michaels will bring a similarly creative agenda to apply through regulatory measures under the guise of 'occupational safety and health?'" he asked.
    The BD Law firm in Washington posted a statement that Michaels is expected to bring major changes if approved. The law firm quoted Michaels' writing from earlier this year that OSHA "badly needs a change in direction and philosophy" and it should include a "campaign to change the workplace culture of safety."
    The National Gun Rights organization called him an "anti-gunner."
    Columnist Dave Kopel at the Independence Institute in Colorado said, "Plenty of Obama's administration appointees have a longer record of anti-gun activism than David Michaels, but perhaps none of them have the ability to make such a dramatic, instant change in the lives of law-abiding gun owners.
    "By its own fiat, OSHA could outlaw the possession of firearms in every workplace and every employee parking lot in the United States," he wrote.
    "That David Michaels is anti-gun is undisputed," he continued.
    "The Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution means that a valid federal law or regulation wins in any conflict with a state law. Many states have laws that protect the rights of employees to store lawful firearms in parking lots at work. If an OSHA regulation prohibiting such storage existed, the federal regulation would trump state law," he said.
    "Under Michaels, OSHA could write a regulation stating that it is illegal for any business to allow guns in the workplace or in parking lots. No handgun could be locked in the trunk of a car, even if the owner has a Right-to-Carry license. No rifle could be stored in the car, even if there’s no ammunition around and the gun will be dropped off at the gunsmith after work," he said.
    Obama's attorney general, Eric Holder, had supported Washington, D.C.'s ban on handguns before it was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court. And since Obama has been in office, he's already advocated for a treaty that would require a federal license for hunters to reload their ammunition, has expressed a desire to ban "assault" weapons, has seen a plan to require handgun owners to submit to mental health evaluations and sparked a rush on ammunition purchases with his history of anti-gun positions.
    Besides its reporting on Van Jones and Anita Dunn, WND previously reported on the controversy over the appointment of Kevin Jennings, a homosexual rights promoter, to oversee the office of school safety in the Department of Education.
    Regulatory czar Cass Sunstein also has, among other issues, stated that marriage discriminates against singles.

    In a sudden reversal, Majority Leader Harry Reid has moved to begin Senate debate on government-run health care on Tuesday.
    Nancy Pelosi and 219 of her colleagues just voted to force you to buy government-mandated health insurance or go to jail.

    You read that right. According to a chilling analysis by the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT), the health care "reform" bill that Speaker Pelosi rammed through the House of Representatives 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."
    Congressman Dave Camp (R-MI), Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee, said: "This is the ultimate example of the Democrats' command-and-control style of governing - buy what we tell you or go to jail."

    That's in addition to the other Pelosi-Care mandates that will lead to rationed care for our nation's seniors... limit your health care choices... put government bureaucrats between you and your doctor... and ultimately reduce the quality of care you and your family receive.

    The next step in this fight is for similar legislation to be considered by the Senate, and reports from a few days ago... claiming that government-run health care wouldn't be voted on until next year... were premature and erroneous.

    According to the New York Times, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid moved to put Pelosi-Care on the Senate floor next week. In fact, Reid filed a motion to introduce his version of government-run health care on Monday, November 16, which means the Senate debate will begin on Tuesday.

    The will of the American people be damned... President Obama and the extreme liberals in Congress plan to ram their so-called health care "reform" down our throats with all deliberate speed... They think the American people are tired, that the vote in the House took the wind out of our sails.

    They're scheming behind closed doors... making deals... twisting arms... thinking they can do the same thing in the Senate that they did in the House. They think that if they move quickly, they can get away with it.

    But that's not going to happen. They are seriously underestimating your resolve against government-run health care. Let's defeat their dubious scheme right here and right now.

    Use the button below to send your urgent and personalized Blast Faxes to the Leadership of the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. Or alternately, you can send your urgent and personalized Blast Faxes to each and every Member of the House and Senate... that's over 530 Blast Faxes. We need to keep the pressure on both House of Congress, because remember, and this is important: If liberals in the Senate are successful in passing their version of government-run health care, the House will have to vote again.

    Let them know that the American people will not be fooled or demoralized into believing the battle is over simply because Nancy Pelosi was able to effectively use the tactics of stealth and deception and intimidation to railroad her version of ObamaCare through the House of Representatives.

    Let them know that any version of government-run health care, whether it is called Pelosi-Care or Reid-Care or ObamaCare or anything else, will not be tolerated by the American people... period.

    And Just What Constitutes "Acceptable Health Insurance Coverage."

    Well... we don't really know that yet. Pelosi's 1,990 page monstrosity doesn't adequately specify exactly what constitutes "acceptable health insurance coverage."

    Instead, Section 224 of Pelosi-Care puts Barack Obama's Department of Health and Human Services in charge of figuring that out within 18 months of government-run health care becoming the law of the land.

    Betsy McCaughey in the Wall Street Journal put it this way: "That's like a banker telling you to sign the loan agreement now, then filling in the interest rate and repayment terms 18 months later."

    But, even though we don't yet know precisely how "acceptable health insurance coverage" will be defined, there are two things we do know.

    First: Remember when Barack Obama said, "First of all, if you've got health insurance, you like your doctors, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you."

    Well (shocker), it appears the President wasn't being totally candid with the American people.

    Under Pelosi-Care, it may be technically possible for you to keep your doctor and keep your plan... but the government will call the shots.

    McCaughey again:

    "Sec. 202 (p. 91-92) of the bill requires you to enroll in a 'qualified plan.' If you get your insurance at work, your employer will have a 'grace period' to switch you to a 'qualified plan,' meaning a plan designed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. If you buy your own insurance, there's no grace period. You'll have to enroll in a qualified plan as soon as any term in your contract changes, such as the co-pay, deductible or benefit."

    In plain English that means, if you like the coverage you have now (and according to the most recent survey data, the vast majority of Americans do), you better hope and pray the plan you have now is deemed by Obama's Department of Health and Human Services to be a "qualified plan" and you better hope that it never changes.

    Indeed, some experts predict that between 90 million to 114 million people will be forced off of their current health insurance and on to a "qualified plan," approved by the federal government.

    Second: We know approximately how much "acceptable health insurance coverage" will cost.

    According to the Congressional Budget Office the lowest (again, that's the lowest) family non-group plan under Pelosi-Care will cost approximately 15,000 dollars in 2016.

    What's that you say?

    You don't want to be forced to buy a bare-bones health care plan for 15,000 dollars or more... a plan that must conform to standards that Barack Obama's Department of Health and Human Services will set at some point in the future... a plan that will ration your health care... a plan that will give you fewer choices... a plan that will lower the quality of care you receive?

    Well... you still have a choice. You can pay a tax penalty to the IRS of up to 2.5 percent of your income... or you can go to jail.

    Or you can continue to fight... you can look Obama and Congress straight in the eye and say no ObamaCare... no Pelosi-Care... no way... no how.

    But Wait Until You Read What Obama Said; Or Rather, What He Didn't Say.

    ABC News recently asked Obama about the issue of jail time and the President side-stepped the question.

    According to ABC News:

    "The President said that he didn't think the question over the appropriateness of possible jail time is the 'biggest question' the House and Senate are facing right now.... Mr. Obama said, 'penalties are appropriate for people who try to free ride the system and force others to pay for their health insurance.'"

    And the liberal blogosphere immediately came to Obama and Pelosi's rescue.

    Liberals started making the bogus argument that people are required to maintain liability insurance on their automobiles and homeowners insurance on their homes.

    Of course, that argument doesn't hold water because under Pelosi-Care, everyone will be compelled to have health insurance.

    No one is required to own an automobile or pay the IRS a penalty for not owning an automobile. No one is compelled to own a home or risk jail for refusing to take out a mortgage.

    Most states and major auto lenders require that you maintain some form of coverage if you choose to own or drive a car and mortgage lenders require you to have some form of coverage if you have a mortgage on your home exceeding a certain percentage of its value until you pay off that loan.

    After all, until you pay off the loan, the car belongs to them... the house belongs to them.... But regardless, in those cases you have a choice.

    So what is the constitutional basis for requiring everyone to buy health insurance or face a civil penalty or jail time?

    Where does it say, in the Constitution, that the government has the right to set the price and the terms of coverage on health insurance, or anything else for that matter?

    It doesn't say anything like that.

    That's why we must fight this battle to the end. Not only is fighting this battle the right thing to do, fighting this battle is something that we must do... or kiss all of the freedoms we cherish goodbye.

    We must fight this battle, because, as long as we fight, it is winnable. We only lose when we give up.

    We only lose when Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the extreme liberals in Congress and in the Administration believe that we have lost our will... that we're tired of fighting... that we are no longer willing to do what must be done to keep our freedoms.

    And that must never happen. That can never happen.
