I Always Wanted to Live in a Socialist State

So now, instead of having to move, the democrats have brought socialism to me.

It's striking to watch the completely bizarre juxtaposition of lies and truth the dems are offering up. Alcee Hastings of the House Rules Committee admitted that the dems are making up the rules as the go along.

On the other hand, there are scores of his colleagues claiming this legislation will provide coverage to millions of people who don't have insurance while the truth of the matter is that it will leave millions more uninsured.

Bart Stupak stood there on the House floor tonight and claimed with a straight face that Obama's executive order would keep federal funds from being used for abortion, knowing full well that the Senate bill he just voted for will trump Obama's exec order once he signs it into law. And that bill will allow federal funding to be used for abortion.

President Obama himself spun a yarn worth of his vice president when he told us that premiums will fall by 3,000 percent.

The CBO, acting under strict orders from top dems, have scored this monstrosity in such way as to show it as a savings, when in reality, it will drastically increase the deficit. Truthfully, anyone with a fully-functional mind should be able to figure out that you can't provide a service to more people and have it cost less.

To hell with the truth, the Constitution, and a gov't that follows the will of the people. This is the age of Obama.

Obama just said that "We rose above politics" in the health care vote tonight when it was the largest power grab by a political party in the history of the nation. The scope and breadth of his lies are breathtaking. He was truthful by omission, however, when he said that the vote answers the dreams of many.

Here It Comes

Yesterday, I posted a link to a story describing a dem plan to circumvent the Constitution to get socialized medicine passed. I really didn't think they would pursue this cockamamie scheme but I underestimated their willingness to break the most fundamental laws of our society in order to force their will on us at any cost. Details here.

Let's Clear Something Up About the Socialized Medicine Bill

It has been made clear in the last few days that all of this talk about reconciliation is a bunch of crap. Once the health care bill passes the House, Obama signs it and the dems have their tentacles in one-sixth of the U.S. economy. This just backs that up.

All of these media types talking about Obama's proposed changes to the bill and potential changes to convince pro-life dems to vote for it - they're either deluded, ignorant, or both. The Senate bill has to be passed as is by the House in order for it to become law. Why should Obama let the House-passed bill go back to the Senate when he can sign it and declare victory over the evil repubs (and the American people)?

And key democrats are very much aware of their quandary. They seem to be getting desperate.

Don't get me wrong. There really isn't any such thing as a moderate Democrat in Congress and they could pass healthcare next week if things don't go our way. Or a few of them could decide not to take the bullet for Daddy O. and try to retain their seat next year. We'll see.
