ObamaCare & War Against Tyrrany

Some conservatives have likened Sunday night's health care loss to the Battle of Thermopylae. The Spartans lost the Battle of Thermopylae ― in fact, King Leonidas and his men were almost completely wiped out. But the Spartans inflicted so much damage on their enemy that the course of history was permanently changed:

The Greeks took encouragement from the unprecedented sacrifice of a Spartan King and his royal guard on their behalf...

The Greeks defeated, and eventually destroyed, the Persian invaders. The rallying cry of the victors was Thermopylae, the noble sacrifice of the final stand of the outnumbered Greeks, and especially the courage of the fallen Three Hundred Spartans under King Leonidas.

I don't know if we will win this war against tyranny or if future generations will have to win it for us, but the fascist socialists who broke the contract with America that is the Constitution will surely pay a heavy price for what they are doing now.

On the eve of ObamaCare's passage, even the Democrats' friends at CNN found that 60% of Americans were opposed to the ill-conceived plan. Here are a few of the reasons why:
  • We NEED thousands of new doctors and nurses, but instead, with ObamaCare, we GET thousands of new IRS agents.
  • The Senior Congressional Staff who wrote the ObamaCare bill exempted themselves.
  • 70% of Americans believe the federal budget deficit will go up as a result of ObamaCare.
  • 62% say the amount they pay for medical care will increase.
  • 56% view ObamaCare as creating too much government involvement in health care.
  • Never in the history of the United States has the Congress ever passed a law which required any citizen to enter into a contract with another citizen or a private business against their will … Never, that is, until now.
  • With this new precedent, if the Supreme Court does not strike it down, there is literally nothing the federal government can’t force us to do.
  • You are an employer and you would like to offer coverage that doesn’t allow your employees’ slacker children to stay on the policy until age 26? Tough.
  • You are young and don’t want health insurance? You are starting up a small business and need to minimize expenses, and one way to do that is to forgo health insurance? Tough. You have to pay at least $750 annually for the “privilege.”
  • You are young and healthy and want to pay for insurance that reflects that status? Tough. You’ll have to pay for premiums that cover not only you, but also the guy who smokes three packs a day, drinks a gallon of whiskey and eats chicken fat off the floor. That’s because insurance companies will no longer be able to underwrite on the basis of a person’s health status.
  • You’re a single guy without children? Tough, your policy must cover pediatric services. You’re a woman who can’t have children? Tough, your policy must cover maternity services. You’re a teetotaler? Tough, your policy must cover substance abuse treatment.
Queen Nancy said we would have to pass the bill in order to see what's in the bill. She should have been more careful about what she wished for.


In the end they have merely made themselves more vulnerable to the gilded clutches of the political class

Changes are coming. And never discount the value of a big surprise. Brown's victory in Massachusetts is a perfect example.

NG: I hope you're right. November can't come soon enough.

I hope the Republicans who campaign on repealing this crap bill keep their word and do all in their power to accomplish the task. Unfortunately, I don't think it can be done until Obama is out of office.
Maybe the states who are suing the government over the bill will be able to get it repealed. The AG of FL sounded pretty confident on Greta tonight (of course, he's running for Governor of FL, so suing over the health care bill will most probably help his campaign). That aside, it's the right thing to do and I wish them luck.

This photo of Pelosi makes me want to vomit. This is the most arrogant power play I've ever witnessed in my life.
