Wake Up Call

It would be comforting to think that Democratic Senators in conservative states will vote in accordance with their constituents wishes in the Senate's crucial vote on the health care bill tomorrow night. If they don't really care what their constituents want, one would hope that Senate Democrats will at least vote to secure their future in the Senate.

The trouble is that Obama and the Democrats have no other game plan their other ideas, like the suicidal Carbon Tax, are even more likely to get them tossed out of office. Obama's power has peaked and judging by the Clinton backlash of 1994, when the GOP won the House for the first time in forty years, it's downhill from here on out. Nothing in politics is certain, and Obama will certainly try to recover power, as Bill Clinton did in the '90s. But Obama and his dead-enders have to reckon with the likelihood that they will never have more power than right now.

So it's not out of the question that the Democrats in the House and Senate will go for a kamikaze rush to push MediCoup through Congress as quickly as possible. It would not be difficult. Normal Americans think we can defeat the "Blue Dog Democrats" at the polls, and that is true. But Obama just has to pick up the phone and tell the Dogs he will guarantee them jobs even if they are defeated. How about Ambassador to Upper Slobbovia?

And in the meantime, leading congressional Democrats will be making the rounds with their own carrots and sticks.

Threatening to give members of Congress the pink slip won't be enough. If ObamaCare is to be stopped, Congress will need to feel the unbearable pressure of relentless wrath from the voters before the legislation becomes law. Kicking the bums out of office will be cold consolation when the bums are immediately promoted to cushy jobs in the Obama administration...while we're stuck figuring out how to cope with health care oppression for the rest of our lives.

Call, fax, email, blog, tweet. Show up at the Capitol. Do anything and EVERYTHING you can.

Call your senators and then call senators from other states. You can't vote their states, but you can contribute to their opponents. Don't let anybody off the hook...they're trying to micromanage your life from across state lines.

Forget the weekend fun and games.

Show up for the MillionMedMarch tomorrow! It will be all over the country. You don't have to be a health care worker. Show up and let your voice be heard! I will be at the March in Atlanta.

Klik, Thanks for the heads up, I've got a post out on the Million Med March.

We must all work to make sure the criminals who trample our Constitution today are out of office at their next election.

Alex said...

So, by your own reasoning, if Senator Lieberman votes against health care reform, he is doing something wrong given that his constituents, Democrats and Independents alike, support it. A "No" vote would make you uncomfortable?

CG: Thanks.

BB: We will. But it will be cold comfort. They're trashing this country. I don't know if we will be able to recover.

Alex: I don't accept the notion that the citizens of Connecticut want (or even know) what the Democrats are trying to do with health care.

The Democrat party is following the lead of Jim Jones and the faithful at Jonestown. It is chilling to observe so many politicians gulping cyanide-laced kool-aid in fanatical unison. Americans will never forgive the Democrats for this attempt to force gigantic government expansion and debt upon them. The Democrat leadership has destroyed the party for a generation or more.
The Democrats have voted in unison to debate the bill. It seems that they have absolutely no understanding of how enraged the American people will be at this attempt to change America into a socialist state.
The socialist/democrats have just drawn the line in the sand.
They own this grievous disregard for the American people's wishes. They have no idea the payback they will be receiving. And they will deserve every bit of it. And they will live to regret it. This is the last straw.
There is really something wrong with those responsible for this incredible political folly. Whatever is wrong, they have sown and soon will become their Waterloo.

Like beating a dead horse with a stick. I plan to haunt Tom Harkin for the rest of his life. He's an idiot and I will remind him of it often. His reelection isn't until 2012.

RightKlik said...

NG: We certainly will.

Malcontent: The Democrats who pay for their votes with their jobs won't be making any sacrifice at all. They'll be promoted to cushy jobs in the BO admin.

EM: We have to pull out all the stops to make their lives as miserable as possible.
