The bottom line and other isms.

Yet another week has ended without a conclusion to this pesky healthcare bill. Instead we get the drama that particular individuals portray as some kind of pseudo normal on the planet Democrat.

What about the babies?

What about the elderly?

What about ME?

As I have written in my last post, I have been shown what is going to happen to average individuals such as myself regarding healthcare. What is prevalent is that this has been going on for a long time. It’s as if we are getting somewhat indoctrinated with things to come so it won’t be such a big shock in the healthcare insurance biz.

Americans are in worse shape than ever regarding debt. It’s been said that 72% of Americans will go through bankruptcy because of government induced crises SUCH AS but not limited to the breakdown of the auto industry, banks and the mortgage business. This debt crisis was made by the government bullying Americans into a place that caused them to be either out of work or had to change jobs that then had to drop or lower their health insurance.

Getting back to the subject, in all of this rhetoric, our quality of having a healthy life is on the back burner. How quick women are to abort rather than have their babies because the government makes it easier and cheaper. Instead of helping our elderly, the government sticks them in a home and empties their bank account to pay for it. And just when you’ve saved a little money, you find out your ‘health insurance’ didn’t and won’t pay one dime.

What are we supposed to do? The bottom line is that there is no bottom line. Our tax money is paying for abortions. Our tax money is paying for IVF for gay and lesbian couples. Our tax money is paying for health insurance for Pelosi and Reid. Our tax money has turned its back on us – the American citizen.

Well, the government can’t have my money for this debacle.

So, this is what we have to do – move our hard earned money to community banks and credit unions, buy American cars and minister to pregnant women, the needy and the elderly.

With this administration going into some kind of hyper-mode to socialism, we need to get back to reality and the right way of doing things….one pregnant mom at a time, one homeless cancer patient at a time, one teen drug addict at a time, one senior at a time, one inmate at a time, one hungry child at a time.

Matthew 25:40 says, ‘…Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.’

‘…this entire process is essentially a charade.’

Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky had this recent post on his site today (12-17-09). You can read the entire post here.

Senator McConnell comments:  ‘The only conceivable justification for rushing this bill is the overwhelming opposition of the American people. Democrats know that the longer Americans see this bill the less they like it. Here’s the latest from Pew. It came out just yesterday….A majority (58 percent) of those who have heard a lot about the bills oppose them while only 32 percent favor them.’

…‘And here’s the most outrageous part: at the end of this rush, they want us to vote on a bill that no one outside the Majority Leader’s conference room has even seen. That’s right. The final bill we’ll vote on isn’t even the one we’ve had on the floor. It’s the deal Democrat leaders have been trying to work out in private…..at the end of this rush, they want us to vote on a bill that no one outside the Majority Leader’s conference room has even seen.’

‘But let’s just compare the process so far with previous legislation for some perspective. Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve done and where we stand:’

  • The Majority Leader intends to bring this debate to a close as early as this weekend — four days from now, on this $2.5 trillion dollar mistake
  • No American who hasn’t been invited into the Majority Leader’s conference room knows what will be in that bill
  • This bill has been the pending business of the Senate since the last week of November — less than four weeks ago.
  • We started the amendment process two weeks ago.
  • We’ve had 21 amendments and motions — less than two a day.

Now let’s look at how the Senate has dealt with previous legislation:

No Child Left Behind (2001):

  • 21 session days or 7 weeks.
  • Roll Call votes: 44
  • Number of Amendments offered: 157

9/11 Commission/Homeland Security Act (2002):

  • 19 session days over 7 weeks.
  • Roll Call votes: 20
  • Number of Amendments offered: 30

Energy Bill (2002):

  • 21 session days over 8 weeks
  • Number of Roll Call votes: 36
  • Number of Amendments offered: 158

Simply enough, this is a scam sham that the Democrats want to shove and push down our throats while there is a patsy president in office to get away with it. Kudos to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi for taking what little liberty we have left and flushing it down the toilet.

Terror tactics & slavery faux pas, just for starters.

From Fox News“Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, ‘slow down, stop everything, let’s start over.’ If you think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right,” Reid said Monday. “When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said ‘slow down, it’s too early, things aren’t bad enough.’”

Interesting take on the healthcare agenda and slavery, Harry…Jefferson Davis was a Democrat that insisted that slavery was necessary to the agriculture prosperity of the United States. In fact, it was a REPUBLICAN, Abraham Lincoln, that abhorred slavery enough to fight for the very right to free them.

But Republicans said they were genuinely appalled. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said Reid’s remarks were over the top…..”That is extremely offensive,” he told Fox News. “It’s language that should never be used, never be used. Those days are not here now.”

Oh Harry….how we love to see your shoe hanging out of your mouth; and especially with your approval ratings taking a swan dive that would make Ester Williams gasp. How can one deal with such notoriety?

And Miss Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, said on her Facebook page today:  “Senator Reid’s remarks regarding the health care bill and comparing the position of opponents as akin to supporting slavery is outrageous! The Republican Party was founded by brave people of African descent and Abolitionists to stop slavery. Today, the proposed health care legislation, with it’s abortion caveats is more closely aligned with slavery and the Eugenicists Movement! Shame on you Senator Reid!”

Oh, precious Sister, that was glorious. How correct you are – how can he even come within a million miles of understanding civil rights? Reid certainly doesn’t mind throwing unborn children under the bus so how could he possibly understand the movement that your dear uncle spearheaded?

More from Fox News:  “It seems that with the more power and prestige that Senator Reid gains in Washington, the more insulting he gets towards those of us back home,” former state GOP Chairwoman Sue Lowden said in a statement. “Now, he compares the majority of Nevadans opposing his government-run health care scheme to proponents of slavery. … Senator Reid should apologize — once again — for his unfortunate comments about our citizens.”

Harry, as much as you have a civil right to live and prosper in this great country, taking advantage of every opportunity that it has to offer…how is it that tiny, fragile, beautiful unborn child does not? Since when are you God?

When Harry met…

Senator Mary Landrieu, moderate Democrat of the state of Louisiana has been on the fence regarding the healthcare issue. Is Landrieu and Louisiana going to be bought and paid for by Harry Reid and his healthcare bill? 100 million dollars says YES.

AP –  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s health care bill has millions of dollars to help Louisiana finance Medicaid at a time when he is hoping that state’s wavering Democratic senator will support overhaul legislation. The bill provides at least $100 million for Louisiana in extra funds for Medicaid, the state-federal health program for the poor. Louisiana’s Democratic senator, Mary Landrieu, has said she is undecided about the Democratic health care package. Reid needs the votes of all 60 Democratic senators for the Senate debate to begin. Landrieu spokesman Aaron Saunders says the senator worked with Reid to get the Medicaid money into the bill, but remains undecided about whether she will vote to allow debate to start.

WWLTV says:  Regardless of which way she stands, it’s sure to draw criticism for the senior Senator in Louisiana. If she votes to topple the filibuster it would anger Republicans in Louisiana, where the GOP has dominated statewide elections over the past couple elections; however, a vote against it would signal her out as one of the few – perhaps the only – Democrats to stand against the bill.

Sen. Mary Landrieu said she will decide Thursday about whether to allow the health-care bill to get to the floor for debate in the Senate, effectively putting majority leader Harry Reid either one step closer or one step back to the 60 votes needed to surmount a Republican filibuster. Landrieu said until she gets the projected numbers from the Congressional Budget Office, she’s staying neutral on the bill.

Read the Harry Reid healthcare bill HR3590 here.

Under his proposed plan, almost all Americans would be required to have health insurance, or pay a fine – up to $750 for an individual and $3,000 for a family.

Pony up, y’all.

No ObamaCare in Ohio

From the Columbus Dispatch:  ‘In a conference call with reporters, House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-West Chester (Ohio), assailed the House Democratic version of the health-care bill as a “1.6 trillion monstrosity. The Democratic takeover (of health care) is going to diminish quality and, I think, reduce access to care. It’s going to lead to rationing and, I believe, denial of care.”  Boehner said he was “not at all surprised” that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said today that he will postpone a Senate floor debate on health care until September.’ohio_proud

Time is a good thing. This ObamaCare debacle needs to be reined in. Obama is under the impression he is helping Ohioans with this bit of legislation. All Obama is doing is cleaning up a mess he created when he was elected. If he hadn’t shuttered and shut down plant after plant, factory after factory with his ‘stimulus’, Ohioans wouldn’t be in the position they are in.

This Ohioan says NO.

“According to statistics released by the White House, 11 percent of people in Ohio are uninsured and the percentage of Ohioans with employer coverage has declined from 71 percent to 65 percent between 2000 and 2007. Moreover, 20 percent of middle-income Ohio families spend more than 10 percent of their income on health care, and 12 percent of people in Ohio report not visiting a doctor due to high costs.”

I don’t know where the ‘White House’ gets their info from, but this was not as much of an issue when General Motors was still in business as General Motors. And it’s not just what Obama did to GM particularly, it’s all the little guys that went with it; design shops, tool and die shops, parts makers, controls makers, even down to the guy that makes the tires to the guy that sells the cars. If you haven’t noticed lately, new car sales are down by HALF. Ohioans counted on the car business, both manufacturing and selling, to put food on the table for nearly as many years as Obama has been alive. I was one of them. The car business made cities out of towns. My job in the car business is now history, thanks to Obama shuttering dealerships.

Obama and his posse of idiot democrats has made what he is trying to fix in Ohio – a lousy economy with little to no healthcare or access to it. Even the guy that drives the big vans to pick up people that have no transportation and is in critical out-patient care has been axed…not enough money to pay him, either.

And when Obama makes small businesses pay for this 1 trillion dollar healthcare plan, small businesses won’t be small anymore. They’ll be nonexistent. Then who’ll pay for it? Every last one of us.

Obama – hear this – the swing state of OHIO is looking redder and leaning more to the right every day. We don’t want your ‘help’ anymore. Pro-life? In ObamaLand? All of our lives here in Ohio are at stake with the current administration. He wants to kill our unborn children, our elderly and whoever else stands a chance at having a life. All he’s doing is erasing people that WON’T VOTE FOR HIM IN 2012. We have major players in Washington that are Ohioans – and we’re done playin’.
