Major business groups say President Barack Obama's health care overhaul is a job killer...
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, and groups ranging from contractors to retailers said Tuesday the Democratic health care bills would raise their expenses, while failing to control health care costs.

More media exposure can’t hurt.
Now, if all these people would pull their funding from Dems, that would be a statement.

So ... a coalition of women business-owners?
A friend of mine sent me this e-mail:
THIS IS THE 2ND OFFICIAL WHO HAS OUTLINED THESE PARTS OF THE CARE BILL
Subject: : Judge Kithil of Marble Falls , TX - HB3200 highlighted pages most egregious
Please read this........ especially the reference to pages 58 & 59
JUDGE KITHIL wrote:
“I have reviewed selected sections of the bill, and find it unbelievable that our Congress, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, could come up with a bill loaded with so many wrong-headed elements.”
“Both Republicans and Democrats are equally responsible for the financial mess of both Social Security and Medicare programs.”
“I am opposed to HB 3200 for a number of reasons. To start with, it is estimated that a federal bureaucracy of more than 150,000 new employees will be required to administer HB3200. That is an unacceptable expansion of a government that is already too intrusive in our lives. If we are going to hire 150,000 new employees, let’s put them to work protecting our borders, fighting the massive drug problem and putting more law enforcement/firefighters out there.”
JUDGE KITHIL continued: “Other problems I have with this bill include:
** Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.
** Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual’s bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.
** Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - ACORN).
** Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind come up with
** Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors’ fees.
** Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient’s age.
** Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.
** Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an “end-of-life planning” seminar every five years. (Death counceling.)
** Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.
HAD ENOUGH???? Judge Kithil then goes on:
“Finally, it is specifically stated that this bill will not apply to members of Congress. Members of Congress are already exempt from the Social Security system, and have a well-funded private plan that covers their retirement needs. If they were on our Social Security plan, I believe they would find a very quick ‘fix’ to make the plan financially sound for their future.”

This is very significant. This is the third anti-Obamacare article by AP I have seen in two days.
“This is the third anti-Obamacare article by AP I have seen in two days.”
Maybe the MSM is starting to at least act like they’re doing their job.

Thanks for the new wallpaper. :)
Or maybe the opposition to Obamacare has crossed into the newsroom. Even Bob Herbert, the NYTimes columnist, wrote about how idiotic Obama is for pushing this thing.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Major business groups say President Barack Obama's health care overhaul is a job killer, and they're launching a multimillion-dollar ad campaign to take that message to voters.
Advertisements will start airing nationwide Wednesday on cable television and shift in a few days to 17 states, targeting moderate and conservative Democrats whose votes are critical to passing the bill in the House. The campaign is estimated to cost between $4 million and $10 million, with the insurance industry paying part of the cost.

It's about time. The American people MUST rise up one more time and stop this thing - this gruesome socialist monstrosity that just won't die - once and for all!
In case you missed this outrageous video:
Thanks for the ping!
This DeathCare/AuschwitzCare bill is Obama, Pelosi, Reid and this Congress final solution for undesirables just as Hitler’s final solution targeted groups of people. Instead of camps, this Congress will use Hospice Centers as the final destination for those they want to eliminate. Big Brother will determine who lives and who is denied care. You decide!
