The Left continues to think that it is an imperative to pass a health care reform bill, despite the fact that they don’t have Constitutional authority to do so, and Americans are continuing to wake up to the fact that they don’t want the government controlling health care.  Nonplussed, the Left soldiers on, determined to do what they shouldn’t, because there is great power at stake to be taken under the guise of being a caring and kind government.  What kills me is the bridges they are willing to burn, and the utter failure to understand that if Republicans aren’t in support of it, may be it is a bad bill.  Instead, they are only to willing to assume the worst because, well, because its what they did for the previous eight years.  Case in point?

WASHINGTON – Frustrated liberals have a question for President Barack Obama and Democratic lawmakers: Isn’t it time the other guys gave a little ground on health care? What’s the point of a bipartisan bill, they ask, if we’re making all the concessions?

Translation:  Shut Up, That’s Why!

“It is clear that Republicans have decided ‘no health care’ is a victory for them,” Andy Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union, said in an interview. “There is a point at which bipartisanship reaches a limit, and I would say it’s reaching that limit.”

First, I have to say Andy has it wrong.  ‘No heath care [reform bill]’ is a victory for the republic and the Constitution.  But more importantly, why is a news outlet quoting an SEIU official about bipartisanship?  Is he also a member of Congress?  I only ask, because it seems to me that a news story about Liberals whining about not getting their way on the health care reform bill, and framing it as a deliberate failure of bipartisanship would quote liberal members of Congress.  It isn’t like there is a shortage of them, and nothing is beneath them, so why are we hearing from SEIU Andy?

While liberals are discouraged, the endgame remains unclear. Some still hope that Obama and congressional Democratic leaders will use all their parliamentary powers — which could prove especially divisive in the Senate — to pass a far-reaching bill that would include a public option for health insurance and more palatable consumer costs for prescription drugs and other needs.

There is that damn public option again, the gateway to single payer…the goal The Pretender In Chief had in mind for years until he had to lie recently about it.  When he says its dead, don’t believe him.

The continued outreach to Republicans, meanwhile, is testing Democrats’ unity. This week, more than 50 House Democrats issued a letter saying: “Any bill that does not provide, at a minimum, for a public option with reimbursement rates based on Medicare rates — not negotiated rates — is unacceptable.”

No.  You jackasses have it wrong.  Any bill at all is unacceptable.  What you propose is unprecedented intrusion into the private sector that threatens the very future of this nation due to its prohibitive cost and unavoidable negative effect on the population over all, as many commonplace treatments will almost certainly become too cost prohibitive to continue, and as doctors, faced with the inevitable price controls, go into other professions, causing a shortage, and even further rationing.  Then there is the little matter of the Constitutional authority for doing so.  You see, you don’t have it, and people like me are not going to be silent about it any longer. 

I’m one of those Americans who you’re pissing off.  I’m tired of not just the brazen lies from members of Congress, the Administration, and the Pretender In Chief, I’m pissed off that you have the nerve to gaslight us about this.  I’m pissed off that when I take my time to express my opinion to my Congressman on this matter, you have the cojones to mouth off to the media that I am in the employ of the RNC, that I’m in the pay of Big Pharma, who is in bed with you guys on the Bill, that I am a sucker and a shill for a special interest, while at the same time, SEIU and ACORN members are being bused in to these same meetings.  I’m pissed off that we tell you “HELL NO!!”, and you just smile, rhetorically pat our heads and say “Its for your own good, silly!”  I’m pissed off that you attempt to use the argument about the spiraling costs of private healthcare, when your refusal/inability to pay market rates for Medicare and Medicaid patients causes medical providers to charge my insurance company more to subsidize the care you aren’t paying for, while at the same time, you publicly laud yourselves for your ‘sucesses’ in controlling costs, despite over 60 BILLION DOLLARS in fraud in Medicare alone.  Nice trick, that. Make it so the private sector bails out the government, then vilify the effect that you caused, while claiming efficiency.  I’m pissed that despite the crippling taxes that this bill will impose upon individuals and families, you are Hell bent on making it so.  I’m pissed that so blatant a power grab is in the offing, and yet so many of my fellow citizens continue to slumber, rather than stretching forth and awaking in you, our elected officials, a well-founded and justified fear of a reckoning that will surely come if you pass this monstrosity, this affront to freedom itself.

The Power to Tax is the Power to Destroy.

Spendulous:  “We must spend our way to prosperity!” (With spending unmatched by all other administrations combined?)

Cap and Trade:  “We will pioneer green jobs, and find prosperity!” (It should be called the Great American Jobs Migration Act of 2009.  “Now with the largest single tax increase on American families EVAH!”)

Health Care Reform: “Single-Payer Neglect For Everybody!”  (Well except for federal employees, and health care that is collectively bargained for.  But I’m sure it will be wonderful for all you peasants!)

I’m only going to ask this once, Congress.  Please don’t do this.  The result will rend this Union asunder in a battle between free peoples and sheeple.  Not even you arrogant jerks can want that on your conscience.
