Health Care Vote Scheduled

Obama Attends Senate Democratic Caucus Meeting

Harry Reid has scheduled a cloture vote on his 2000+ page health care bill for – get this – 1:00 AM on Monday, December 21. This after violating the Senate rules on Wednesday when he stopped the reading of the amendment offered by Senator Bernie Sanders. This after closed door meetings with President Obama and recalcitrant Democrats. And what does the bill include now? Who knows? Even Senator Reid doesn’t know. And what will it cost? Who knows? CBO might get it scored by Monday, but can we trust their numbers? Republicans suggest perhaps not.  Who will it cover? Who knows? Will it include a public option or coverage for abortion? Who knows?

There’s a huge rush to get this bill passed before Christmas? Why? Who knows? Why the need for a 1:00 am session? Are they hoping the opposition will oversleep? Who knows? The Democrat panic over this bill is palpable as they have refused any Republican input and as they continue to ignore the wishes of the people – at least 56% of whom prefer that Congress do nothing.  

This Congress is out of control and in panic mode. Yes, we do need health care reform, but not via a bill that even the author hasn’t seen. This is still America! If you have an opinion, let it be heard before 1:00 am Monday.

Personally, I'm feeling smooshed.

I didn't realize you had begun posting again! I came by to wish you a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year only to discover I've neglected your site too long.

This bill breaks my heart for my kids and grandkids. The number of ways this administration has found to rob us of our freedoms and our income is mind-boggling. And what we here in real America want or need doesn't matter to those enthroned on the Hill.

The best thing about 2010 is that it is an election year. Let's pray that folks with some sense in their heads replace those who have none!

Good to see you back. God bless!

Thanks, Linda. Welcome back. I apologize for the lapses in posting. Seems like I run so fast that I look up and weeks have gone by. I'm going to try to be more consistent in 2010. Really...

A belated Merry Christmas to you, and many blessings and changes in 2010.
