The government takeover of health care will go down in history as the worst piece of legislation to emerge from a Congress held in general disdain by the American people. The only bipartisanship on the health bill was in the opposition.
Usually autopsies are reserved for after the patient has died, but in this case it is useful to get ahead of the matter. The malformed health legislation is not the only reason Democrats are facing political extinction in November, but it is one of the most dramatic. The legislative process in this country has never been so unseemly. Arm twisting, backroom deals, special privileges and potentially criminal "government jobs for votes" agreements became a normal way of doing business. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi fixated on the mantra that the Democrats' health plan is "historic," but so was the Black Plague.

But .. the reality is .. the dems DON’T KNOW they have in effect done this to themselves.
When they finally get in that circle .. Which one will try to pull away first .. and which one will attack first. Who will survive .. one .. two .. maybe.
There’s a story in the Bible, where God confuses the enemy, and they turn and destroy each other. This is more of what I believe will happen.
It might have happened sooner if they had lost the vote, but I still believe it will happen anyway .. and November will be the greatest opportunity to get our country back and to vote in people who will do what the American people want, and not what the politicians want.
Obviously that’s meant to be a racist attack on Obama.
We'll own these dumb asses in November!!!!
Obama said at the White House shortly after the House voted: "This isn't radical reform, but it is major reform."
To our Prez I say...
“Its possible that an ObamaCare defeat would have robbed the Tea Party movement of its signature issue and a certain amount of momentum going into the November elections.
Now, we can be assured that ObamaCare will continue to dominate nearly every news cycle, especially since most states will be mounting legal challenges.
This will help ensure an informed and motivated electorate come November.”
Call them what they are, pu$$ies! And I'll include those that simply want to sit by and incessantly blame, who else, Bush!
Time for these p*ssies to man up, or go back to their litter boxes.
Their plan all along has been to survive the November backlash by getting amnesty passed ASAP.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against an Army.....?
I appreciate your sentiment but I think the next battle will be this week, in the Senate. We may need to get in there again with the lobbying and etc.
It would indeed be wonderful if this scandalous, traitorous act results in the biggest rout of a political party in American history.
The cream on the pie would of course be our Supreme throwing the bill out as unConstitutional. Call me a Pollyanna, but I think they will, and it will be nice payback for O’s ugly behavior during his precious “speech.”
Eight months from now I think this board will be entertaining some very happy FReepers.
I am long prepared for the elections regardless of what happens with the health care bill.
pharaoh’s army drowning in the red sea was ‘historic’ also.
The politically best time to strike would have been post elections in November in the lame duck session. The Rats have poisoned primaries and gubernatorial races and all sorts of things by acting this early in the year. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch.
May have to tie the kangaroo down for several years before it’s killed.
decisive, i think you mean
Well we do have a freight train bearing down on us now.
There has to be some way to sabotage amnesty.
I have been starting to scan the various major media outlets across the country in different states. People are really pissed off. Dems are underestimating the whole thing.
I agree — wholeheartedly.
This bill was passed against the will of the people, just to mention one of the travesties of it.
We now officially have tyranny in our government and we have the right to overthrow it:
The Founders Escape Clause
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it - U.S. Declaration of Independence
“There are people fighting much tougher fights all over the world. We at least go home to running water and electricity and cable TV.”
Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. CS Lewis
Let the lawsuit's begin!!!
For starters how about the EQUAL RIGHT PROTECTION whereby all persons should be treated EQUALLY regardless of age, gender, nationality etc?
Under Obama's Death-care the elderly are the first ones to get screwed, hence discrimination by AGE.
We need to recapture the theme of America’s greatness currently lost in the world of Leftism and Political Correctness.
The youth must play a role in this - it must be reflected in their intrinsic desire to be liberated. As elders, we fight for the future of the youth.
Generally, people need to be made aware of the unprecedented violation that just occurred against their liberties. I suspect that most inhabitants of the U.S. don’t care to be violated.
I could not agree with your more. Indeed, H.R. 3200's most gigantic flaw--not correcting the issue with the means to lower the cost of health insurance provider premium costs--will anger every business owner to no end and you will be a LOT of Democrats voted out of office in a huge landslide--and that's in the primary season!
Indeed, H.R. 3200 would have passed LAST fall if it included two components:
1) Allow health insurance companies to sell policies across state lines in a regional fashion. Imagine being able to competitively choose between 10 to 20 different private insurance plans--the result is price competition that will dramatically lower premium costs.
2) Allow businesses under 50 employees in size to join a buying pool to do a large-scale group buy of insurance policies. Since a large group buy spreads the insurance risk over a very large group of people, that too will cut premium costs.
By not including these two provisions, the cost to businesses, especially in states where there is little competition between health insurance providers--will be nothing short of disastrous financially.
Well, for starters, there's all the people in the 37 states which have enacted legislation stating their intent to ignore the deathcare laws.
How many people is that?
Someone should have asked Pelosi if she feels that she is BECOMING history!
Now that Obama has his deathcare plan. The left will be pushing for legal assisted suicide.

Do You Know Jack?
There are good reasons why even secular society ought to disapprove of suicide. Ill share them with you.

According to an upcoming HBO movie, You Dont Know Jack, folks. The Jack in this case is Dr. Jack Kevorkian, a.k.a., Dr. Death. The title also means you dont know anything.
Actually, we know quite a bit about assisted suicide-its those who insist otherwise that need instruction.
While the movie hasnt aired or even been viewed by critics, we can infer its perspective on Kevorkian from the comments made by its stars, Al Pacino and Susan Sarandon.
According to Pacino, viewers dont know this guy. Kevorkian is more than meets the eye...[the film is] a portrait of a zealot. I dont think we see that often.
Kevorkians zealotry also appealed to Sarandon, who said that people who dedicate themselves to a cause at the expense of anything else in their lives are really fascinating people.
For his part, Kevorkian is said to be enthused about helping with the film. His lawyer thinks the film wont be scathing and critical.
I guess not. I certainly doubt that three Oscar-winners-Pacino, Sarandon, and director Barry Levinson-have come together to make a film that wont be at least a little sympathetic to its subject.
What viewers will probably see is a story about a man whose excesses hurt an otherwise noble cause and led to his downfall at the hand of religious zealots.
Of course, theres nothing noble or compassionate about physician-assisted suicide-and you dont have to be religious to believe that.
No one would call the British magazine Spiked religious or even traditionalist. Yet, it recently ran two pieces about why assisted-suicide should remain illegal. In one of them Kevin Yuill of the University of the Sunderlands makes clear what many assisted-suicide advocates try to obscure: The ultimate goal isnt to alleviate suffering, but to enshrine in law the right of any person to end their life.
This right, according to Yuill, threatens the assumption that human life is valuable.
He calls suicide a deeply anti-social act that destroys possibilities-not just, obviously, for the individuals themselves, but for others too. Yuill insists that its this social harm and not what he terms outmoded religious beliefs that lies behind the taboo against suicide.
In the other piece, editor Mick Hume adds that the right to die is the result of a loss of faith-not in God, but in humanity. Hume decries the lack of belief in the human capacity to transcend the limitations of our lives. In this demoralized setting, the wish for a good death replaces the aspiration for a better life.
What Hume and Yuill miss completely is the connection between Christian ideas and the beliefs whose passing they lament. What Hume calls faith in humanity is inseparable from the idea of our being created in the image of God. What Yuill calls possibilities is derived from Christian ideas about hope.
But thats OK. When it comes to assisted suicide, the next big so-called rights campaign that the left will wage, we Christians welcome good, prudential arguments. So that even non-believers can come to understand the aspiration for a better life.

The Federal Government did not keep its promises in many areas. In the promises concerning Social Security cost and obligations they did not keep faith. The promises surrounding the cost of Medicare have not been honored. I could go on and on and on. Therefore I purpose that our obligations to them should be treated as their obligations to us.
Congressional retires should lose all of their future retirement benefits.
They have done it to us. There is very little pain in being sent home by your constituents when 90% if their pay stays the same. Lets send them home without a golden parachute. If they can ignore their promises and obligations why can't we? What gives their claim superiority over ours?
I think we should look for Conservatives that will go to Washington and pass legislation that will cancel all retirement benefits for retired Federal legislators. It will take the same metal exhibited by some in Congress this week, although I doubt that the people will be very offended by this.
Possibly from this Congress. Although they still have time to pass something even worse.
It's not the worst law in American history, of course. That would probably be the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, which led directly and almost inexorably to the Civil War and 640,000 dead Americans. An equivalent number today would be around 6.5M.
What a great thought .. especially after I had to work with my boss today on how we’re going to handle the reduction in work hours. Some of our best caregivers are going to be out of a job. We’re crushed.
So .. I’d be very happy if ObamaCare went in the trash can.
However, we thought the Supremes would do the same with the campaign finance law .. and you see how long that took .. and then, only a portion of it was thrown out. If the same thing happens with ObamaCare .. the damage will be so severe, we will never be able to recover.
For those reasons, I’m not going to start cheering any day soon.
