Members of the House of Representatives tonight approved President Obamas health care agenda, the biggest expansion of government power since the Great Society. The Obama health care legislation is universal in scope and will profoundly impact the personal lives of more than 300 million Americans.
It will restrict our personal freedom while undercutting the independence and authority of the several states.
This unprecedented congressional action will give Washington control over the content of health benefits packages; the kind of health insurance available to Americans and the organization and regulation of health insurance markets.
This has been accompanied by one of the most shocking Congressional exhibition of arrogance and special interest deal-making in memory.
In 1774, in response to the first Tea Party, the British Parliament issued a series of acts designed to control the colonists, stop their protests and restrict their liberty. The Americans called these The Intolerable Acts.
Obamacare is todays Intolerable Act. In poll after poll, in town hall meetings, in popular protests and in special elections, ordinary Americans have declared their firm opposition to this scheme, only to be derisively dismissed.
This imposition of legislation is intolerable for two reasons:
* Process: The outrageous way in which this massive restructuring of one six of the economy has been pushed through.
* Substance: Huge obligation shifted to future generations, a huge lurch toward European-style welfare states.
The Heritage Foundation will have a full answer to Congress action tomorrow and in the days and weeks and months to come.
We will do all within our power to recommend, and make the intellectual case for, the repeal of these acts.
We will help marshal the full resources of the conservative movement for this cause. You can join the fight to keep America the Land of the Free today
Fortunately, there are no permanent victories or defeats in Washington. For millions of Americans and for Heritage, Round One of this fight is over. Tomorrow morning, we are answering the bell.
Our rallying point is the individual mandate. I am absolutely intrigued by the folks over at that lefty blog firedoglake.com it’s freaking amazing we have COMMON CAUSE with them. They are calling this law facism too!!!
The individual mandate is gonna knock the Democrat party down so far they may never recover. There are those on the left who agree with us, go read it for yourselves.
We WILL fight on! Don’t Tread on Me!
This bill is not about Health, it is about expanding the IRS into the Gestapo. This is the first step of Obamas Civilian Security Force that is better equipped than the military. 2300 of the 2700 pages of this bill is about expanding the IRS.
Better be for closing your bank accounts and getting your money out of the country, because the take over of the banks and your accounts is next, just like they hustled the “health” bill through. This bill allows the IRS access to your bank accounts tomorrow. They will take out what they like and you wont even get a receipt for it.
With this takeover of Americas insurance business, the auto industy and other things that they have seized, the Obamites now control 48% of Americas business.
Its time to wake up folks and stand up for our rights. Some of us may shed blood, but we have to make damn certain that a lot of them shed blood also.
Amnesty for illegal immigrants will successfully create a large voting block of leftists that lasts forever. This will more than make up for any severe loss of legal leftist voters throughout the U.S.
No way is it Constitutional for the federal government to compel an individual to purchase a product from a private for profit company. No way that is Constitutional. The Supreme Court is gonna toss this pig.
That was never the intent of the Founding Fathers.
They'll just nationalize insurance companies...no more private insurance...next!
Oklahoma’s Democrat Attorney General who took Oklahoma on the side of Gore and against the Boy Scouts is part of the group of 38 attorney generals who are going to file suit. Could have knocked me over with a feather when I heard that.
This is going against the grain of a lot of Democrats with the arrogance they have seen out of Obama and Pelosi and they don’t like it. The day Pelosi said we have to pass the bill to see what is in the bill is the day the DemocRAT Party lost support.
Now let’s see the DemocRATs do something about it and stand up to Pelosi which I don’t believe will happen but I do believe in the privacy of the voting booth they will vote to oust the pro-abortion Democrats. When you start spending tax dollars to fund abortion, people draw the line even Democrat voters. This Country is not far left, it is center right and time for the leftists to be defeated once and for all.
We can be certain that there is more to come.........much more.
Of course that is what they really want, single payer. But that is not what they passed. Even if they nationalized insurance companies it is still an individual mandate and unconstitutional.
Our Republic as we knew it, is over.
So require to buy something from gummit? Just for existing in the land? Same difference.
etter be for closing your bank accounts and getting your money out of the country,
Did that many months ago.
