More lies from the president:

Barry —

For the first time in our nation’s history, Congress has passed comprehensive health care reform. America waited a hundred years and fought for decades to reach this moment. Tonight, thanks to you, we are finally here.

Consider the staggering scope of what you have just accomplished:

Because of you, every American will finally be guaranteed high quality, affordable health care coverage.

Every American will be covered under the toughest patient protections in history. Arbitrary premium hikes, insurance cancellations, and discrimination against pre-existing conditions will now be gone forever.

And we’ll finally start reducing the cost of care — creating millions of jobs, preventing families and businesses from plunging into bankruptcy, and removing over a trillion dollars of debt from the backs of our children.

But the victory that matters most tonight goes beyond the laws and far past the numbers.

It is the peace of mind enjoyed by every American, no longer one injury or illness away from catastrophe.

It is the workers and entrepreneurs who are now freed to pursue their slice of the American dream without fear of losing coverage or facing a crippling bill.

And it is the immeasurable joy of families in every part of this great nation, living happier, healthier lives together because they can finally receive the vital care they need.

This is what change looks like.

My gratitude tonight is profound. I am thankful for those in past generations whose heroic efforts brought this great goal within reach for our times. I am thankful for the members of Congress whose months of effort and brave votes made it possible to take this final step. But most of all, I am thankful for you.

This day is not the end of this journey. Much hard work remains, and we have a solemn responsibility to do it right. But we can face that work together with the confidence of those who have moved mountains.

Our journey began three years ago, driven by a shared belief that fundamental change is indeed still possible. We have worked hard together every day since to deliver on that belief.

We have shared moments of tremendous hope, and we’ve faced setbacks and doubt. We have all been forced to ask if our politics had simply become too polarized and too short-sighted to meet the pressing challenges of our time. This struggle became a test of whether the American people could still rally together when the cause was right — and actually create the change we believe in.

Tonight, thanks to your mighty efforts, the answer is indisputable: Yes we can.

Thank you,

President Barack Obama

The lies once again: Reduced costs for all, 32 million more insured, and $1.3 trillion in deficit savings. And of course, no one who makes under $250,000 will see their taxes increase one dime.

From the Senate Conservative Fund:

Dear Fellow Conservative:

After months of backroom deals, political payoffs, and strong-arm tactics, President Obama and the Democrats have forced the health care bill through Congress. The bill passed the House of Representatives tonight by a vote of 219 to 212.

House Democrats also passed a separate “reconciliation” bill that includes minor changes, but its fate in the Senate will not stop the President from signing the health care takeover later this week.

We’ve lost the battle over this bill, but the war for health care freedom has just begun.

If you’re willing to join me in the fight to save freedom, we can settle the score in November by electing true conservatives who will repeal this unconstitutional and dangerous bill.

The simple truth is the bill cannot be fixed. It must be repealed.

This is why the Senate Conservatives Fund is launching a national “Repeal ObamaCare Pledge” to rally support for conservative candidates who vow to repeal President Obama’s health care takeover. The pledge reads as follows:

“I hereby pledge to support with my time, money, and vote only those candidates who vow to repeal President Obama’s health care takeover.”

America is teetering toward tyranny and we must work together to reverse the radical agenda in Washington that is being used to march our country off a cliff.

Electing just any Republican is not the answer. We’ve seen what happens when we send Republicans to Washington who don’t truly believe in the principles of freedom. We end up with a Democrat-controlled Congress and a Democrat in the White House.

Instead, we must help true conservatives who love the Constitution and who will fight to repeal ObamaCare.

The Senate Conservatives Fund has endorsed four Senate candidates for the 2010 elections — Pat Toomey (R-Pennsylvania), Marco Rubio (R-Florida), Chuck DeVore (R-California), and Michael Williams (R-Texas). These candidates have all pledged to repeal ObamaCare and they’re all rock-solid conservatives who will fight to defend liberty.

Please sign the “Repeal ObamaCare Pledge” and encourage your friends to do the same. Together, we can repeal ObamaCare and win the fight for our nation’s freedom.

Sincerely,

Jim DeMint
United States Senator
Chairman, Senate Conservatives Fund
