The Government Bully

With the Senate approval of a health care bill we come one step further to having the arrogant elitists in Washington jam something down our throats that the large majority of American citizens do not want. In NY neither my Congressman nor Senators have been even willing to listen to the concerns of their constituents in an open forum, believing that they know what is best for us.

There are major Constitutional difficulties with these bills
  • forcing private insurance companies to provide services at costs that do not allow them to profit
  • The creation of "death panels" which cannot be abolished without 67% of future Representatives voting to do this (this is the rationing board that will be established when the inevitable shortages occur)
  • forcing taxpayers to fund abortion *which takes away our right to "life")
  • preventing firms from going around the system for people that would like to get other services
  • forcing citizens to buy something that they may not want or need
In all my life I have never seen such a perversion of the political process. In American history only the attempt by the Democrats to open slavery to Kansas and Nebraska is as extreme. That ultimately ended very badly with the Civil War.
