Well, Stupak caved. The Dems have been "handled" beautifully by the Obama/Ried/Pelosi Trio. Obama keeps telling us how "historic" the Obamacare legislation is. Pelosi used the same words when she described the coming vote. All the top Dems were seen falling all over themselves Saturday trying to one-up each other on how "great" a statesman they each were as they worked through the corrupt process of creating this healthcare legislation.
But in reality the Dems are either lying, or misinformed (I choose to believe they are lying) when they talk about this legislation. To anyone watching the process it's obvious that the bill, the scoring for the bill, the cost of the bill, and the deficit reduction attributed to the bill are all being manipulated in an effort to soft sell this to a gullible segment of Americans. In truth, this particular legislation is idiotic! That's not to say that some form of reform is not necessary and welcomed. This is just not it. Biden talks about the government "controlling" the insurance companies. Many Dems talk about this bill just being the "starter home" for bigger and better things - re: bigger government, more control over you and me, and more taxes for starters. But I predict we'll find ourselves somewhere down the road with the mysterious "healthcare lockbox" looted again by big-spending politicians who couldn't keep their greedy little hands out of the cookie jar. It's happened with Medicare and Social Security so it stands to reason that it will happen here - a leopard doesn't change it's spots. Then where will we be?
This may indeed be historic legislation. And when a President puts his legacy before the interest of the country he has sworn to serve and protect, he has committed treason in my view. Such is the case with Barack Hussein Obama. So yes, it is historic, but it is even more idiotic! And, in my view, EVERY American who is in favor of this particular legislation is an idiot as well!
The Great Divider Obama has struck again!
God Help Us All!
