His Transparency makes a great show of what his version of so-called “bipartisan” legislation might look like, but where’s the bill, eh?
Kathleen Sebelius says, “…the American people are desperate.”
Tom Daschle says, “Every time we do [try healthcare reform], the same predictions and the same dire consequences are announced.”
David Axelrod says, “Make my day.”
The truth is that the American people are, indeed, desperate. Desperate for proper, Constitutional authority-based leadership in Washington. Leadership that does not confuse health CARE with the explosion of the business of health care INSURANCE. Leadership that strives to protect individual, inalienable rights and the inherent responsibilities that go along with them.
The majority of Americans are more familiar with the alleged health care “reform” bills in both the House and the Senate than are most of their unrepresenting representatives. And the majority of Americans do NOT want anything to do with either one. The majority of Americans understand the dangers of the federal government usurping control over their access to medical care and control over the kind of care they may or may not be allowed. The majority of Americans are now wondering just why student loans need to be a part of the “health care reform” package.
And in ways that go beyond simply the horrible matter of the Senate bill allowing federal taxpayer funds to be used to pay for abortions, the majority of Americans do NOT want to be forced to pay for other people’s choices.
This one should have been tossed into the trash a long time ago. But the Democrats are twisting arms, cutting both deals and throats in a last-ditch attempt to salvage the chance to satisfy their insatiable appetite for control over the lives of others with what amounts to a nothing more than a rotting, stinking heap of unsustainable, unconstitutionally-mandated entitlements. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) calls the Democrat’s latest push for overwhelming government control “a political kamikaze mission”. And to be sure, next November, those in Washington who fail to heed the voice of the American people will find themselves in that long, long, progressive liberal-created unemployment line.
It’s too bad they can’t be ridden out of town on a rail instead.
