Kill the Bill!!

Update:
Got out my cellphone today & called the list of Congressional Dems. from 3-13's post (please see below). It took only 15 minutes. Got several busy signals, several 'mailbox full' messages & managed to get through to about 8. I'm calling until they've all heard from me.

Go to Twitter & run a search for #killthebill to see what people are saying. There are reports of people shouting outside of Congressional offices "Kill the bill! Kill the bill!" (You'd think we were still in the Clinton Administration. But no, this is FAR more serious.)

Call, my friends. Take 15 minutes & call. Register your 'vehement opposition' to this healthcare bill. Or simply say, "Kill the bill!!"

Dennis Kooksinich that dirty, slimy little worm has announced he will vote for the bill. I guess he was bought off by a ride in Air-force One.
I guess that integrity is for sale to anybody at any price these days.

I'll tell you one thing, if this thing passes, the Dims who voted for it will face a long hot summer more miserable than anything they could have imagined. And in November the unemployment lines will be a bit longer.
I guess he was just waiting to be wined and dined by obammy, and now that he was, everything is Cool!
Clearly, his flip-flop since being a firm "NO" just 48 hours ago was bought and paid for. Was he also instructed exactly when to make this announcement. What a joke this man is. What can the people of his district be thinking when they select him to represent them?

RisR~ I heard it from you first, & of course he was bought off on AF1. That's what makes this whole thing so disgusting. I'm so sick, I can hardly talk about it anymore.

God in heaven, help us. Please.

LOL...

I see fake RiR is running the gauntlet of intelligent blogs.

Susannah, as long as we burn up the hotlines and sign the petitions and assist Code Red, this should be sundered.

Karl Rove was signing books at Borders today, but they put a limit on how many could get inside. Would have been a nice story.

Thank you for fighting the good fight. I know we are weary, but so were our forefathers as the days dragged on. This nation is worth our exertion, as you know.

A Blog by Mrs. Bynum said...

Barack Obama has gotten bolder in his sales pitch for ObamaCare over the last couple of weeks. While earlier he kept his fiscal promises as non-specific as possible, generally talking about “bending cost curves” rather than relating it to individual effects, lately he has pledged that his signature agenda item will lower health-care premiums for Americans. The Associated Press calls shenanigans today in a fact check:

Buyers, beware: President Barack Obama says his health care overhaul will lower premiums by double digits, but check the fine print.
Premiums are likely to keep going up even if the health care bill passes, experts say. If cost controls work as advertised, annual increases would level off with time. But don’t look for a rollback. Instead, the main reason premiums would be more affordable is that new government tax credits would help cover the cost for millions of people.

Listening to Obama pitch his plan, you might not realize that’s how it works.

I was on my phone for about 2 hrs today, calling everyone in Washington I was able to.

Susannah said...

Bluepit~ Thanks. I really hope you're right. It's getting pretty scary. I'm still making calls & emailing.

BHO has put off his Asia trip - again. What a rediculous thing to do - & how foolish it makes him look to foreign gov'ts. It makes me wonder if he had an Asia trip planned at all...if it's all a drama to ramp up the "urgency" factor. Either way, I'm not buying it, & neither should anyone else.

As for FRisR...what silliness...Thanks for the tip; I hadn't noticed. I'll leave the comment, just b/c I agree w/ what the person said, fake or not! ;)

Opus~ Thanks for the encouragement. Our nation is worth it, indeed. That & SO much more!

Mrs. Bynum~ Glad you stopped by! I'm convinced it's all smoke & mirrors, especially the $$ part of it. We can't afford this monster, plain & simple. Come back soon!

Spin~ Glad you came by, too. Keep calling!!! I am. I'm gonna email, too. They can't tell me, "I'm sorry, that email box is full," like their voicemail does.

Come back soon!

Joe said...

We have one more day to get it done. CALL, CALL CALL, EMAIL,EMAIL,EMAIL. Whatever it takes.

Susannah said...

Thanks Joe. Let's don't forget pray. God in heaven, help us!

Jim said...

With luck we are only a couple of days from passing the largest DEFICIT REDUCTION legislation in the history of the United States.

Susannah said...

Jim~ You really are deluded if you think this monstrosity reduces the deficit. First, IF it does, it's ONLY if all the stars align while Obama does a jig on the moon, casting his shadow over the White House during a lunar ecipse. And even then, we'll be borrowing $$ from the Chinese that MY children's children will be paying interest on until their deaths, and beyond.

Anyone who truly believes this reduces the deficit without indebting us elsewhere is, I'm sorry to say it - and I only say this with the utmost respect for people's right to disagree - and because I'm so angry about this I can hardly see straight, a fool.

Good day, Jim.

Jim said...

Um, deficit reduction is actually deficit REDUCTION. The CBO may not always be accurate, but they don't play games.

Let's say for a minute they are off by 50%. Repeat: 50%. That's STILL a decrease in deficit by $700 BILLION over 20 years.

That means we borrow $700 Billion LESS from YOUR children than if we do nothing.

And that's if they're off by 50%.

Jim said...

Anyone who truly believes this reduces the deficit without indebting us elsewhere is...a fool.

The only way you do that is to keep things like spending on the Iraq and Afghan wars "off the books" like Bush did. Obama made sure those expenses are ON the books which is part of why the national debt and deficit "apparently" jumped when he took office: actually accounting for war spending that Bush didn't account for.

Who's a fool?

Susannah said...

Ok Jim, I'll play. This monster reduces the deficit due to the billions of dollars in tax garnishment from private citizens who are forced to buy services (for themselves AND other non-taxed people) from the government, and businesses (large & small) who are forced to provide insurance for their employees - to the government's satisfaction. (And there are some 140,000 new 'jobs' included in the 'fix' package to insure that businesses are doing things the way Big Brother wants it done - God help us!).

Now, ask yourself...how long before private citizens understand that they're now slave to the State & to their fellow citizens who won't go get a job? How long before companies - large & small - fire workers or take MORE of their business over seas b/c it's just to damn expensive to do business in their own country.

EVEN IF this bill reduces the deficit (& I'll watch for the shadows on the White House), it will put American businesses OUT OF BUSINESS. Jim, only a fool would castrate itself. That's precisely what this bill will do to American productivity, jobs & wealth potential. It will KILL competitiveness. Much as Michelle & Barry hate that concept, it IS the way of the world, and we will be extricating ourselves from it - on purpose.

Stupid, imbecilic, irrational, suicidal, foolish.

Keep living the dream, Jim. Marx would be proud.

Jim said...

Sigh

Susannah said...

Jim dear, you disagree how? You think this will build up our ability to compete in the Global Marketplace? How, exactly? How, exactly, will is create private sector jobs? How will it allow people to retain the freedoms promised by the Constitution?

Stupid, imbecilic, irrational, suicidal, foolish.

Sigh. Indeed.

Does everybody who was at this post almost FOUR YEARS AGO now GET IT???? I'll repeat now what I said then about what Obamacare would do to our country, because it IS HAPPENING...

Ahem, and I didn't have a crystal ball either. Any fool -- who was willing to see past smoke & mirrors -- couldda said exactly the same thing.

To anyone who believed the menace that is BHO, "I told you so."
