To: Second Amendment First

Nothing in the United States Constitution empowers the Federal Government to become as involved in people lives as this bill would enable to happen.

Why does NO ONE say this!

Put the U.S. Constitution away, out of view if it is not going to be used and we will heed our other cherished document, the Declaration of Independence.

It has the perscription for what to do with an over reaching government.

I thought Obama was focussed 100% on the economy and jobs??

I guess he really meant he’ll get around to that sometime when his ongoing health-care soap-opera wraps up....

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

Who will be the first Governor to utter these words again I wonder? If things keep going the way they are I truly think this will be the end result that's coming.

Retiring Rep. Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.) voted against the House bill but said in a statement March 4 . . .

that the president’s proposal is “moving in a more fiscally responsible direction.”

I am still trying to figure out how anyone can intellectually say something of this nature. They have to and are being asked to vote up or down on the "Senate" version.

No where in that version is the president's proposals PLUS . . .

They have to vote for the premiums on the "cadillac insurance"

Stearn and his minions get to pay extra !!

It will never be fixed because the American people will not accept any ammendment of that nature in future bills

The Dems were out en mass yesterday claiming that no one can find the Stupak 12. That it is a myth.

Their DemocRATS!! Pelosi will get the votes by force, fear intimidation and bribery. So they’ll force Obamacare down our throats. Hopefully, we’ll have our day in Nov.

Haven’t we learned by now? This manufactured “suspense” is a farce. Nobody is really changing their stance, except in districts where it will reduce damage for the demonocrats, provided the bill itself passes.

The demoncrats move as one. There are no “moderates” who are on the fence.

The American public is once again being played. They already have the votes. The fix is already in. Wake up everyone.

“Code Red” - House Target List on Health Care
The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go http://www.votervoice.net/link/clickthrough/ext/94697.aspx to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obama’s announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the “fixer” bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.
Rep. Lincoln Davis 202-225-6831 Columbia office: 931-490-8699
Rep. Jim Cooper 202-225-4311 Nashville office: 615-736-5295
Rep. Bart Gordon 202-225-4231 Murfreesboro office: 615-896-1986

expect most of the undecided and leaning no to break yes once they strike their deal. They have seen how to play it.
