Think back, way back, all the way back to September of 2008 when Hank Paulson came out with a 3 page “plan” and told Bush that we were all doomed if the government did not bailout the mammoth banks. Remember all those Americans that started writing, calling, and faxing their representatives to tell them “NO!” and to let the sick banks fail and just the get the mess over once and for all? All that calling and resistance netted us a $700 Billion T.A.R.P.
Remember Stimulus 2.0, a whopping $787 Billion $3.27 TRILLION that we screamed “NO!” over, and they passed it anyway? Remember the $410 Billion omnibus porkulus bill that was the impetus for the Tax Day Tea Parties, which the congress passed even though people were protesting in the streets? Remember when we melted the switchboard at the capital over Cap and Tax, the House health care bill, and then the Senate health care cloture vote? And what did they do? They went against our wishes and voted FOR all of this “dollar crashing” spending.
Just to show you where the American people stand, Rasmussen Reports this morning:
Just 38% of voters now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s the lowest level of support measured for the plan in nearly two dozen tracking polls conducted since June.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% now oppose the plan.
Which brings me to the point of this post, the dog and pony show for health care has begun. The distraction of “maybe they won’t pass it” commentary has started. Rest assured, these asshats are going to pass some form of health care RAPE and the Spineless-In-Charge will sign it and I am betting it will happen before New Year’s Eve. You have seen the rush that the House went through, the rush that occurred in the Senate and the two Saturday votes. If you think that Harry and Nancy are going to allow 2 months of debate, you are out of your freakin’ minds. If anything, you will see legislators looking like hamsters on crack.
Here are some examples of the dog and pony show this congress is going to put on for the American people. Remember Lieberman stating he would filibuster a bill in the Senate? I don’t have to wait to see if that happens. I know it isn’t going to.
I am NOT SAYING we give up and do not call, write, email, and fax. I will continue to stand behind that peaceful, American way of dissent, because we need to be on the record as OPPOSING this continued financial rape of the American people and future generations, but I am now looking at the ways we get every single piece of clunker legislation totally repealed after we dump this congress in 2010, and this asshat pretending to be president in 2012, (or hopefully sooner).
What is about to occur on the internet, on the news shows, and in the daily newspapers will be a show to rival anything in Hollywood or Broadway. Please do not get sucked emotionally into their little game of keeping you off-balance and upset. Clearer heads need to prevail.
