Pay attention people, the national biometric ID card is part of the immigration reform bill being proposed by those two progressive fascists, republican Lindsey Graham and democrat Chuckie Schumer. As Judge Napolitano states, the Real ID Act was passed in 2005 authorizing a national ID card but the states have resisted it.
If this bill passes with this authority intact, you will no longer be free men and women to do as you please within the confines of the law; you will be cows, or worse, slaves to be kept track of. At what point are we going to tell the government to shove it by either not paying taxes or taking an unpaid one week vacation (also known as a National Strike) – quickly followed by mass firings (of elected officials turned traitors)?
Read the Dems’ outline just released on Wednesday, here. (H/T BB)
There could be so many different titles for this post but I think sticking with congressional hearings for all is proper, since the only people that know this bill isn’t a done deal are the dems. They are racing around trying to make everyone believe that Obamacare is the ‘law of the land’. It may be for a short period of time, but Obamacare as the law of the land for any length of time is a fantasy. Why else would Chuck Schumer be telling people that anybody that voted against it is going to lose in November? That statement goes well beyond anything anybody smokin’ crack and living in ‘my little pony’ world would ever think to say.
“I predict that by November those who voted for healthcare will find it an asset and those who voted against it will find it a liability,” Schumer said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” – Chuck Schumer
The corporate damage rolls in, and Democrats are shocked!
It’s been a banner week for Democrats: ObamaCare passed Congress in its final form on Thursday night, and the returns are already rolling in. Yesterday AT&T announced that it will be forced to make a $1 billion writedown due solely to the health bill, in what has become a wave of such corporate losses.
This wholesale destruction of wealth and capital came with more than ample warning. Turning over every couch cushion to make their new entitlement look affordable under Beltway accounting rules, Democrats decided to raise taxes on companies that do the public service of offering prescription drug benefits to their retirees instead of dumping them into Medicare. We and others warned this would lead to AT&T-like results, but like so many other ObamaCare objections Democrats waved them off as self-serving or “political.”
Perhaps that explains why the Administration is now so touchy. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke took to the White House blog to write that while ObamaCare is great for business, “In the last few days, though, we have seen a couple of companies imply that reform will raise costs for them.” In a Thursday interview on CNBC, Mr. Locke said “for them to come out, I think is premature and irresponsible.”
Meanwhile, Henry Waxman and House Democrats announced yesterday that they will haul these companies in for an April 21 hearing because their judgment “appears to conflict with independent analyses, which show that the new law will expand coverage and bring down costs.”
In other words, shoot the messenger. Black-letter financial accounting rules require that corporations immediately restate their earnings to reflect the present value of their long-term health liabilities, including a higher tax burden. Should these companies have played chicken with the Securities and Exchange Commission to avoid this politically inconvenient reality? Democrats don’t like what their bill is doing in the real world, so they now want to intimidate CEOs into keeping quiet.
On top of AT&T’s $1 billion, the writedown wave so far includes Deere & Co., $150 million; Caterpillar, $100 million; AK Steel, $31 million; 3M, $90 million; and Valero Energy, up to $20 million. Verizon has also warned its employees about its new higher health-care costs, and there will be many more in the coming days and weeks.
Monster readers know that the pResident and his administration have ALWAYS been about distraction and deflection, so the rapidly approaching illegal alien amnesty flying under the radar of healthcare reform, Afghanistan, cap and tax, and flying to Copenhagen for the Olympics is no surprise.
This administration appears to be pulling out all the stops when it comes to making sure that the pResident achieves re-election; see ACORN, the Census, Illegal Immigration, etc. How many of those 12 million newly legal aliens would NOT vote for the guy that gave them one of the greatest gifts one can achieve in the world; American Citizenship.
On 1.3.2010, I put up this post about Luis Gutierrez’s immigration amnesty bill and our government spending millions of dollars of our tax money to get the illegals to come out of the woodwork and be counted. Don’t think there is a correlation between being counted and gaining citizenship? Keep reading.
After watching the Obama machine with the blessings of the DNC mafia run right over the Hillary campaign and millions of democratic voters, Americans that believe in the Constitution and the rights it assures have been on high alert when it comes to the 2010, 2012 elections and beyond. As soon as we heard that the Census Bureau was being moved under the West Wing, we all knew that the caucus fraud that occurred during the democratic primaries was being taken to the next level to assure dems retained their seats. They pulled it off the first time, why fix something that is not broken, and will have the full weight of the Executive Branch legitimizing it a second time? Then add in Luis Gutierrez’s immigration amnesty bill and the preparations coming from the White House, and thinking Americans can see the light on the next locomotive about to flatten us.
To assure that those millions of illegals are counted before they are blessed with citizenship (with the wink and a nod persuasion for their votes), the pResident is spending $340 MILLION DOLLARS of our tax money to promote the 2010 Census to everyone including anyone watching the Superbowl pre-game. The rape and pillage of our nation’s treasury and our grandchildrens’ piggybanks continues unabated.
Today, that legislation is being moved by Obama himself. People, you are not stupid, we have to stay three steps ahead of the marxist, communist, fascist, ‘ who knows what’ in the White House.
In an effort to advance a bill through Congress before midterm elections, the president meets with two senators who have spent months trying to craft legislation.
Reporting from Washington – Despite steep odds, the White House has discussed prospects for reviving a major overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws, a commitment that President Obama has postponed once already.
Obama took up the issue privately with his staff Monday in a bid to advance a bill through Congress before lawmakers become too distracted by approaching midterm elections.
In the session, Obama and members of his Domestic Policy Council outlined ways to resuscitate the effort in a White House meeting with two senators — Democrat Charles E. Schumer of New York and Republican Lindsey Graham of South Carolina — who have spent months trying to craft a bill.
According to a person familiar with the meeting, the White House may ask Schumer and Graham to at least produce a blueprint that could be turned into legislative language.
The basis of a bill would include a path toward citizenship for the 10.8 million people living in the U.S. illegally. Citizenship would not be granted lightly, the White House said. Undocumented workers would need to register, pay taxes and pay a penalty for violating the law. Failure to comply might result in deportation. (emphasis mine)
Participants in the White House gathering also pointed to an immigration rally set for March 21 in Washington as a way to spotlight the issue and build needed momentum.
Though proponents of an immigration overhaul were pleased that the White House wasn’t abandoning the effort, they also wanted Obama to take on a more assertive role, rather than leave it to Congress to work out a compromise.
Immigration is a delicate issue for the White House. After promising to revamp in his first year of office what many see as a fractured system, Obama risks angering a growing, politically potent Latino constituency if he defers the goal until 2011.
Among proponents, there is a consensus that a proposal must move by April or early May to have a realistic chance of passing this year. If that deadline slips, Congress’ focus is likely to shift to the November elections, making it impossible to take up major legislation.
“There’s no question that this is a heavy lift and the window is narrowing,” said Janet Murguia, president and chief executive of the National Council of La Raza, a Latino advocacy group.
