Posted on 08/03/2009 5:37:44 AM PDT by ianschwartz
A town hall erupted in Philadelphia after Sen. Arlen Specter said health care reform has to get done fast.

The only reason to do it “fast” is to keep the people from finding out what is in the bill.
We need to get rid of Specter...FAST
Yes, but I would imagine that a lot of PA people don’t really want to know what is in the bill or know the facts of the emperor’s birth either.
The Natives are restless.

It doesn’t matter what’s in the original bill...It’s the amendments that will occur every two months until they have TOTAL control of your “health” from conception to death...
Here is a link to the full House Democrat Health Care Plan in PDF. In Section 1233 E & F, pages 426-433, you find the part about mandatory end-of-life counseling for anyone over 65 years of age. Section 152 Page 50: All healthcare services will be provided without regard to "personal characteristcs" which is not defined within the document but is understood to include immigration status.
Section 224 b Page 125: The Secretary shall design and implement the payment mechanisms and policies under this section in a manner that (1) seeks to (B) reduce health disparities (including racial, ethnic and other disparities).
A lot more provisions now being documented at that site.
Donwload it, read it, study it, then hammer your reps over it and pass it on to all you know asking them to do the same.
Also, here's a large image of the Democratic (Obama) Health Plan chart-another Obama empty promise. This is the one the House democrats are censuring. Email these links or the image to everyone you know.
Obama and all those pushing his radical agenda are abject marxist ideologues. Their "fundamental; change" is nothing more than a destruction of the American free market and fundamental republican principle.

...and on the lighter side, take your mind off the Obamanation for a few minutes and enjoy some beautiful Western US scenery slideshows.
Viewed a small portion of Sphincter and Succubus getting grilled, it was absolutely beautiful. The more it happens across America the better.
Middle class tax hike coming down the road.

The creeps want it to happen fast because they know that after the elections of 2010 it won’t happen at all. The absolute disdain for the American people by our legislators is so blatant and pervasive its mind boggling.
It is really sad how far this country has fallen from what the Founders bequeathed us. Specter is a Senator. He of all people should know that the Founders intended the Senate to be a deliberative body, as a check on the House, where things happen “fast”. To me, deliberative means to take your time, look at bills carefully, consider their consequences, both intended and not, read the fine print, consider all sides of an issue, and only when reasonably confident that you understand what you are voting on, take action. None of that says “quickly” to me, especially when you are talking about a new multi-trillion dollar entitlement program.
From the TX message board.
The anger there is unreal. You can watch that video and wonder how close they are to having someone actual storm them. Specter might have more security in the future.
I am sure this level of anger is happening across America and will get worse.
That Congress critter that admitted they don’t read the bills made a huge mistake.

Another day another mantra. Now it has to get done fast. We have also been told that we need to do it to save money, to stop those evil insurance companies, that a deadline was set so it would get done, that fifty million Americans are without insurance, that doctors are doing unecessary surgeries, that the blue pill is cheaper and more effective than the red pill. So many different sales pitches that it makes one's head spin. However, at bottom, it is a junk bill, laden with regulatiosn that will so befoul health care in this country that thousands of lives will be lost. REJECT IT IN IT'S ENTIRETY!!!!!
We did get rid of him - he’s a Democrat now. (Well, he was a Democrat before, but he claimed he was a Republican...)
Bump for later viewing.
The faster you shove this monstrosity through, the less time the little people will have to try and stop it, right, Arlen, you piece of sh*t?
As action officers used to say about “urgent” taskers that HAD to get done by ridiculous deadlines
when they want it bad, they get it bad
hark! The sound of pebbles hitting the dirt being dumped on Dhimmi Specter’s career
All one really needs to know about Specter...is that as a junior attorney on the Warren Commission in 1964...when it became clear that Kennedy had been hit by bullets from at least two directions...Specter came up with the “single bullet theory”...LBJ loved him for it.
...his career has been greased ever since.
The senate was also supposed to be a body to preserve state’s rights against federal power, but we can see how that turned out.
This(audience showing extreme distain) needs to happen WAY more often with our elected leaders.
We really REALLY could use a complete overhaul of our elected officials though. That would solve a LOT of the problem. At least for a few years.
True, but the voices in that crowd gave me some real hope.
Put powdered wigs and three-cornered caps on them and I’m getting all misty-eyed.
BTW ... wanted to share this link. It shows you where your congressman/woman is holding town hall meetings:
Fast so that no one can read the stuff
Boy, Sebelius’ attitude on that stage is pathetic. She acts put out with the people.
The Friends were applauding after they showed the vid this morning.
Course not, the city of “brotherly love” wants and needs free and immediate access to medicine. Filthy, filthy, filthy.
This goes way beyond Congress's usual habit of delegating the power to effectively create legislation to regulatory agencies.
This is a vote to hand a blank check to the staffers and lobbying organizations, to create whatever legislation after the fact. This vote is a vote to end the Republic.
Right. The other reason for doing it fast is so that various Federal bodies (CBO, Treasury Dept., etc.) can at least have a basis for which to determine the massive new revenues that are going to be needed over the next 10 years in order to pay for this sh!t.
I was thinking the same thing.
This isn’t that different from the anger that started the formation of our country.
Maybe some in Congress will get the idea they will be voted out because that is the only thing that is going to stop them.
He really is a piece of you know what.
What in the heck is he doing out there talking about RAMMING through something that will impact 1/6 of our economy! And will IMPACT each and everyone of us peons out here in terms of the quality of our health care!
Haven't our leaders in the house or this case SENATE been reading about what happens to people in a socialized health care system?
Why in the HELL are the congressmen and women getting involved in this area anyway?
Why in the heck do they want to destroy the best health care system in the world
Why are they willing to punish an entire NATION because some people do not carry insurance?
Why, when it is CLEAR that our nation is a nation of CHARITY, not only at home but around the world, do they want to DESTROY that and force all of us into a system that will ulitmately put all of us at the end of a spectrum where the great oz controls all and our pleas for perhaps an aged very sick and much loved family member will go under the bus because, there is a rationing system, don't you know.
Our very creepy, dirty, filthy marxist pig of a president - who knows his own FAMILY will never have to suffer under the great Oz's decree on who gets the new hip, or knee, or cancer surgery etc - wants to push this crap on us?.
He sure loves the people in his nation who work hard everyday and DO NOT DESERVE TO BE FORCED INTO A UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE SYSTEM THAT WILL WORK AGAINST THEM, doesn't he? NOT!
How DARE those hellbound men and women in DC that follow that black creep attempt to walk into the medical world in our nation and TAKE OVER IT!
We have the best medical practice in the world, and it draws the best of the best of us into it. And folks come from all over the WORLD to be a part of our medical system.
Why RUIN it? WHY?
Oh, that's right, with this universal health care, the goverment is giving itself ACCESS to our bank accounts to actually make WITHDRAWALS. Therefore....what is NEXT if full control over what we EARN.
Don't you WONDER that if the congressmen and women and that freak of a PRESIDENT had to go under the same plan they are pushing upon us if this INVASION into our HEALTH CARE would even be happening.
Liberals ruined the black family with welfare, President Johnson even said "we the democrats) will OWN the blacks forever now" . Meaning give the blacks these freebies, ruin the family by paying young girls money for each baby monthly but taking that money AWAY if they marry the father, the DEMOCRATS knew EXACTLY what they were doing.
Now they want to ruin the nation with universal healthcare,which leads to a helplessness in the most important area of our lives, it takes the most important decisions some of us will ever make AWAY from us.
It dispirits a nation and puts us on a course like England where we lose our souls and become lost to more and more tyranny ( in England's case...they have lost to the Muslim invasion and the PC leaders that now order their lives will not let the people stand up and object. )
We MUST STOP THIS MADNESS.
Let's INVITE THE WHOLE FRIGGIN CABAL OF CONGRESS TO GET THE HELL OUT OF OUR MEDICAL SYSTEM AND TO STAY THE HELL OUT OF IT, FOREVER! IT IS NOT THEIR JOB TO TAKE OVER OUR HEALTH CARE...
What’s the problem? They’re “speaking truth to power”! HA!
The smug grins on the faces of those two at 2:10 explains it all. The contempt they hold for the audience is visible. They consider themselves above the public, and immune to its outrage. This kind of 'government' is a clear danger to Liberty.
Alexis de Tocqueville said it succinctly: A mans admiration for absolute government is proportionate to the contempt he feels for those around him.
Sebelius says there’s no Health Care bill in the senate.....Reaaaally???? than what the he11 is this?
