Dirty Dealings in Congress

Congress is still up to their dirty tricks. See Mike's America, where he gives us information about just HOW DIRTY our elected representatives are. They are stealthily making plans to pass this disgusting government takeover of American's health care, despite the fact that poll after poll shows that Americans DON'T WANT IT. Despite that fact that we vociferously let them know how we felt about it in townhall meetings all across the nation during the August recess. Despite that fact that over a million citizens marched on Washington and in every major city in America on 9/12 in adamant opposition of this nefarious plan.

THEY DON'T CARE. They have just realized that they have to sneak it through - all with Obama's blessing. Some excerpts from Mike's post:

Senate Dems on the Finance Committee defeated GOP offered amendments which would have strengthened bans on using federal funds for abortion and required immigrants to prove they are here legally with a photo I.D. before participating in the health plans. Like earlier defeats of GOP amendments that would prohibit rationing of health care or cuts in medicare Democrats have rejected every GOP solution which would have made this a bipartisan solution. Remember that next time Obama claims we are lying about health care reform. Joe Wilson was right!

But what is happening in the Senate Finance Committee is a sideshow to the secret back room dealings which will take place as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid takes the framework from the Senate Finance Committee and melds it with the very liberal Kennedy bill from the Senate Health Education and Labor Committeee. It is in that secret process that actual legislative language will be written and there is no restriction on what Reid and a handful of Senators and their aides can do.

Once presented for a vote - I doubt that our elected representatives, including Obama, will want anyone to actually READ the bill. They will attempt to push it through - as Obama attempted to pressure a quick vote before the August recess.

The time for us to act is NOW.

I know people are tired of hearing this, but they need to call their representatives and senators.

They can also write letters to the editor.

Anyone who has ever left a comment on a blog can write a short letter to the editor of their local paper.

My local rag published my last letter. They will print yours too.

Nothing we do or say makes any difference at all. I lost track of the number of letters, faxes, emails and phone calls I have made to Sen. Schumer. He doesn't give a damn and does exactly what he wants to do. Our Government stopped listening to We the People on Dec. 23,1913. From that date on, our elected officials from both parties have taken this nation down the road of destruction.

I fear that the only real option now is a full an open revolution. Nothing else worked.

I am so sick and fed-up with these Communist millionaires and their stupid, pseudo-intellectual dupes.

Thanks, Mike! I haven't tried writing to the paper - that's a good idea.

Rev - I've got Casey - and then there's Specter. What a couple of boobs. I write to them anyway, because they need to know what we're thinking even if they don't like it. Screw them. If they get enough feedback they might start worrying about the next election.

DC - I'm sick of them too. It's astonishing to me - what they are doing and how entitled they believe they are to be doing what they're doing. Breathtaking and astonishing.

This reinforces my belief that there is no such thing as 'good government'. Less is always better.

Ok I am having a hard time being politcal here so everything that goes on in the government effects us all right. I am not happy with how things are lookig with health care and what nots.. But we cant stop these ASSES from doing what they think is right and wrong.

We vote a person in for The House and President and most of the time they tell us what they want us to hear and then when it comes time to doing what they said its not true..Or at least from what I have learned over the years of just listening..

Obamacare wont pass-too many conservative Dems know they risk re-election if they go for it and even RINO Olympia Snowe (who the libs are trying to go after) isnt buying it.

Tweetey - whether they ultimately listen to us or not we have to let them know what we expect them to do in representing us. There is one thing that they care about and that is retaining their position.

We do wield the power to either vote them back in, or present candidates that keep our interest in mind.

The reason that the Republidan party (IMHO) lost so big is because voters refused to vote for them as a result of their move toward big government over the last several years.

So - our unhappiness can absolutely affect their job security.

Mr GG - I hope that you are right. Olympia Snowe has a history of not listening to her constituents.

We will have to see..

Olympia Snowe, true to form, will be the only Republican voting for Obamacare. The Dana Show.
