Obamacare_slipping_fast


It's amazing what you can learn if you make a few phone calls and do your homework.

Yesterday morning I called Parker Griffith's office to *ahem* politely remind him who he works for and to vote NAY on HR 3200. His staffer encouraged me that Griffith would not vote for the bill as is. In fact, he told me that Griffith has introduced two pieces of legislation.

The first would require that Congress take the public option if HR 3200 passes (as first reported by Alabama News Platoon). The second piece of legislation requires that a vote be suspend on the bill for a week after presentation so that there will be time to read the thing.

Despite this good news, I saw that Pelosi & Co. were planning to use this trick: House to Use Controversial Budget Reconciliation Process to Pass Healthcare Reform




Americans for Limited Government just released a statement Congressman Parker Griffith (D-AL) Opposes "ObamaCare".

Keep calling your non-representing representatives and remind them who they work for. Tell them to vote NO on HR 3200.




I called Senator Sessions' office to find out why he was not supportive of filibustering Sotomayor's nomination. For this I was transferred to the Judicial Committee staff where they kept telling me that although Sessions has not addressed the issue publicly, the fact of the matter is that the Committee is 12/7 in favor of the Democrats and they have the 60 votes in the general chamber to break a filibuster. So though Sessions hasn't come out and said it, the truth of the matter is it would be a futile effort and isn't worth spending the political capital.

During my search for Senator Sessions Washington office number, I found that he sponsored a piece of legislation that would mandate that any Federal money that was left over from budgets at the end of the year should go to paying down the National Deficit. See site for details.




If you want to see a truly clueless idiot that doesn't understand how journalism works and apparently doesn't know how to use Google either, head over to Flashpoint.

Re: Pop Quiz

It's saying that public support for the Obama Administration's health care plan is slipping fast as people find out what it really means.

Re: Pop Quiz

That answer is incomplete. The humor comes from the guy holding the list telling Obama that he'll have to wait for an operation like Americans would have to wait under national healthcare.
