Reeling from defeats in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts, Obama’s dramatic legislative agenda to fundamentally change Americans’ lives and the structure of our free society is in a shambles. His credibility within his own party is wearing very thin as frightened Democrats seek high ground from the rising tide of public anger.
Obama, his administration and the Democrat-dominated House and Senate have consistently operated in direct opposition to the will of the American people. We’ve been subjected to layer after layer of lies and disinformation, telling us that what we saw and heard with our own eyes and ears wasn’t true.
They have fabricated an alternative universe of statist nirvana that they want to force us to enter to satisfy their dreams of absolute power over us. Americans won’t put up with this, now or ever. If they think they saw a couple of million Americans on the march at the Tea Party event in Washington, they haven’t seen anything yet.
If Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid think that they can ram health care through using the RECONCILIATION process they may be biting off more than they can chew. For one thing, it’s not at all clear whether they can muster the required number of Senate votes to pull it off at this juncture, given the Democrat mad scramble for political cover with November looming larger by the day and increasingly angry, vocal constituents lurking over their shoulders. It’s not nearly the slam dunk deal Harry Reid, Pelosi and their slavish statist press are portraying it to be.
The obvious factoid that they are trying to get their colleagues in the House and Senate to ignore, is that if they were to push this monstrosity through using reconciliation and Obama signed it into law the public’s fury would know no bounds. We’re not nearly as dense as they wish we were. We would understand perfectly what a massive distortion of the legislative process this would be! We would also understand that it was being used in order to avoid the will of the people.
Obama has ’summoned’ Republicans to a health care ’summit’ for which he has a ready-made bill, the House and Senate versions combined, to which he has presumably added a few twists of his own which he will present to Republicans as his grand fait accompli. Republicans need to stick to their guns and demand that the bill be scrapped and started over. They should wear the mantle of the PARTY OF NO proudly, for that is precisely what we wish them to say.
America will stand with them as long as they stand for us, God, truth and the Constitution of this great country.
Get on the phone, send your faxes and emails. Write letters and flood representatives’ offices with your visits. Talk to your friends and neighbors and get them to do the same. Now is the time for ACTION!!
