Obama signs health care reform bill, aims to promote it on the road
CNN ^ | 2010-03-24

Posted on 03/23/2010 9:55:45 AM PDT by rabscuttle385

Washington (CNN) -- President Obama on Tuesday signed into law a sweeping health care reform bill, the nation's most substantial social legislation in four decades, achieving a top priority of his administration.

Greeted by applause from enthusiastic supporters, he said, "Today after almost a century of trying; today, after over a year of debate; today, after all the votes have been tallied, health insurance reform becomes law in the United States of America."

The president said he is confident the Senate will improve the health care reform law swiftly. He said some health care reforms will take some time to phase in, but others will "take effect right away."

Cut off $600.00 per year to Direct TV today. I told them Obama and Nancy have left me no money for luxuries.

I meant to do this before, but it was a good day for the TV to die.

I believe he’s trying to minimize the UPCOMING SLAUGHTER the DemocRATS may face in the 2010 elections. He still believes his own press that he can make people faint at the sound of his “silky” voice and that he can turn crap into candy!

Why promote it now!?!?!

If it was so damn good, then why didnt this bastard take the time to outline every frigging provision in it before? That way he wouldn’t have had to bribe people to vote for it, it would have had 88% support and would have passed last summer!

The Intolerable Acts are also known as the Coercive Acts.

They have conveniently attempted to quell their main base, THE COLLEGE STUDENTS, by attempting to appease the effects by “the age 26 rule’, to prevent uprising and, or the “Kent State Effect.” (And also the so called college loan takeover.) One may add to this what they have been indoctrinated with also.

70% of real Americans did not want, AND therefore were NOT REPRESENTED in this so called “bill”.

So we now see the reason for the “COMPLIANCE CRUSADE”, beginning in Iowa, which is an attempt to quell the 70% before the big bureaus kick in. But, Mommy and Daddy in this 70% aren’t buying it and WILL NOT.

By my timeline, we are now in-between The Olive Branch Petitions....(WE HAVE TRIED AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN , on the local levels, on the regional levels, and by great PERSONAL expenditures, personal expenses not paid for by The State Politburo. And now this past weekend another personal attempt Olive Branch Petition right at the steps of the Capital itself, OUR CAPITAL, once again distanced, misstated, or ignored by the arms of the new Federal Politburo.).

So we are somewhere in between “The Olive Branch Petitions” and “The Declaration of Arms”

American CITIZENS, as Thomas Paine would say, WILL NOT, AND CANNOT, SUPPLY THE MEANS IN WHICH THEY WILL THEN BE OPPRESSED.

he's going on the road again for it -

Isn't it time to tell this Johny One Note that we have a few other things that need attention - like JOBS, for starters....

He's going to the Kennedy Space Center on April 15 to expound on his great new ideas for the space program = the one that will put 7,000 of them at the base out of work in Sept and result in 36,000 losing their jobs in the area (businesses dependent on the Space center) plunging the area in to 15-20% unemployment - while he has instructed NASA to send the saved money to ‘predominantly Muslim countries, starting with Indonesia (the country he considers home)...to train them and bring them into the space industry - teach them how to build rockets too - how many more Irans?

“Some 7,000 space industry workers will lose their jobs in Florida...”

http://www.floridatoday.com/content/blogs/space/2010/01/boeing-lays-off-36-workers.shtml

Repeat that in Houston, also losing thousands of jobs: a democrat
speaks out

Send the money to the Muslims -

Notice how no one at the White House is waiting for the Reconciliation Bill to be voted on and signed before they start running around touting their great accomplishment! They could not care less and never cared about the fix bill, except to the extent it got a couple gullible liberal democrats (synonyms)to vote on the ugly Senate bill.

This group is so screwing the Congress. Remember just a couple of days ago with demon pass. The whole purpose was to make certain the Senate would pass the fix bill. Guess what. Doesn't looks like anyone cares anymore. Bill is passed and nothing else to see here.

The White House is happy with the Senate bill and no energy will be put in to get the fix bill approved in the Senate (as is) or back in the House if the Senate makes any changes. And, no one will call him out on it.

Priceless. Our only hope is that they will remember this when he crams through cap and tax and amnesty. (Wishful thinking)

you post: “Cut off $600.00 per year to Direct TV today. I told them Obama and Nancy have left me no money for luxuries.

I meant to do this before, but it was a good day for the TV to die.”

You can get your TV free online - turned my satellite off in Jan 2009. (They will give you at least a 6 month 'extension on suspension" so's you "won't lose your account and can have it turned back on . they "extened my 6-months" 3 x's now, in hopes of luring me back. Nope. gonna keep that money.) Love that money in MY pocket - now watch my news free and my shows without commercials - so only half the time to watch - and watch them on MY time schedule. (Isave up 3-4 weeks of "24" so's I can watch them all in a row ;o)...)

here's a few links to start with

http://www.fox.com/24/

http://www.hulu.com/

http://dsc.discovery.com/

http://video.pbs.org/program/979359625

http://www.zahipedia.com/2009/07/01/watch-online-fox-news-live-free/

http://www.foxnews.com/

for opinion shows like Beck/Greta/Bret - scroll all the way to bottom - they sill be a day delayed.
We were able to watch Fox news live up until about a month ago. All other news outlets are still available - but FOX has been been blocked for live showing. Hmmm? But a day late is still better then the others and CHEAPER than paying for cable/satellite...(and you can still get on time clips on the net)

This is the senate bill that already passed the senate on christmas eve and the house this last sunday....

You’re referring to the reconciliation bill in the senate now waiting on their debate/vote and if they change one thing....THAT bill (the amends the one signed today) goes back to the House....

This Demcare bill was NOT passed because "We the People" wanted it passed - they only way the boy king can claim "after all the votes have been tallied", was because of all the bribes and payoffs done with WE THE PEOPLE'S tax payer funds.
