Why The Getting Obamacare Passed Before The August Recess Is Critically Important to TOTUS
Friends and Fiends in DC and Networks and WaPo | MS26

Just back from weekend at Bernies in DC.

The Obama machine is beginning to leak.

Obama's political henchmen now privately admit that an unpassed Obamacare bill will never survive past the August congressional recess. They know every member, particularly Dems from the House side and swishy R on the Senate side, will be bombarded with negative comments about Obamacare from most people back in their Districts.

They admit that the next two weeks are critical to getting it passed, and are very worried about another phone blitz such as killed some other nefarious legislation in the past.

Spread the word. Call every Congresscritter and Senator. Be respectful but make it clear that there will be no peace in the land (politically) if this monstrosity passes.

Call them now, call them all, call all the district offices and DC offices. The numbers are listed on their web pages. E-mail is nowhere as effective as a phone call. Call them again and again.

As one female member said this afternoon, "After being in favor of the national healthcare plan at first, I’ve come to my senses and decided I don't want Dr. Acorn to be my gynecologist! " (And she is a Dem!)

If we kill this plan, we reveal Obama to be a very empty suit, and blank teleprompter.

You said “In fact, socialists eliminate the infirm and non-productive (aged).” What exactly do you mean by that? The host family that my daughter stayed with is now in the their 70s and one of them is being treated for cancer. I only know because they were going to come visit but decided to stay in England while she is treated. I havent talked to them much about health care but she didnt seem at all worried about her care. Is there something I should be warning her about? My daughter insists the british have longer lifespans but I dont know how that could be true if they are letting the older people die.

I’m sure all of us who have paid into SS for decades and decades (4+ here) are thrilled to learn that not only will SS be kaputt in our lifetimes in spite of all that money, but also we will have to get on our knees before a government clerk/counselor to beg for our lives to last another 5 years.

I'm soon to be unemployed so I've decided to go back to school - taking out the maximum amount of federal loans along the way and living off them. Do that repeatedly until I die, thereby receiving my social security that way. And if I die before paying it off, so what? Sue me.

I wouldnt do the student loan thing the loan companies are vultures. My son is working on his phd and has taken loans and they company recently tried to put him into collections even though he is not done and should not have to pay yet. I hear that is because they make more money when a loan defaults and is paid off by the government than when the borrower pays it off. Our liberal government at work.

Hitler was a socialist. Musolini, Stalin, Putin, Mao, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Pierre Trudeau.

Put all the socialists together and the life expectancy doesn't look so good.

And they like to cook the books, among other thinks.

Oh I definitely see your point though I dont think the british are quite so bad as the nazis. I was just worried because I know the care is not as good in socialist countries but I hadnt heard anything about old people being purposefully killed and was wondering if I should warn our host friend. Is the british system really that bad?

I just got through reading posting history too. I was tempted to post a “sniff”. I was wondering if it was just me but after reading the history, came back to thread and saw your post.

Please vote on a current and ongoing Yahoo Poll on 0b0z0 care:

Support for the president’s expensive plan to extend coverage to millions of Americans while curbing Medicare and Medicaid spending has slipped in recent nationwide polls.

Where do you stand? Do you support the health care overhaul?

Yes. The plan will save lives and money in the long-term. 16%

Somewhat. It’s not perfect but it’s something. 6%

No. It will burden us with debt and won’t fix anything. 77%

Not sure/No opinion. 1%

KILL THE BILL

No half measures
No acceptance after redacting some parts.

NO HEALTH CARE
NO WAY
