Democrats Gift Wrapping A Turd For Christmas

Monday, December 21, 2009

On Christmas eve, Norad will be tracking more than Santa’s sleigh this year. They will have the additional task of monitoring all the government jets flying our U.S. Senators home. December 24th looks like the date that Harry Reid will use to get passage of their version of the health care bill. The stink from all the sweat, arm twisting, bribes and bullshit will reek for decades.

Then in January 2010, Nancy Pelosi and the House of Representatives will be busy polishing this turd to an awesome shine. Hopefully the leftist of the Democrat left will put back all the worst stuff into their version so that the reconciliation process will be mired by Democrat on Democrat violence.

The Democrats can only get passage of their crap in the middle of the night, on weekends and holidays — their legislation is so bad that they don’t want us to read it or even know about it.

This is the gift that will keep on taking our tax dollars. Passage of this monstrous growth in government control will mean that in 201o we will start paying for it, but “health care for all” will not even be available until 2014.

Yuval Levin of National Review Online states, “The CBO assessment of the bill tells the appalling story. We are going to raise taxes by half a trillion dollars over the next ten years, increase spending by more than a trillion dollars, cut Medicare by $470 billion but use that money to fund a new entitlement rather than to fix Medicare itself, bend the health care cost curve up rather than down, insert layers of bureaucracy between doctors and patients, and compel and subsidize universal participation in a failed system of health insurance rather than reform or improve it.”

Randall Hoven at  America Thinker clarifies, “The CBO does not make the accounting all that easy, despite its many tables of numbers. The number Democrats like to cite is that this plan will reduce the deficit by $132 billion over the ten years from 2010 to 2019.

Let me repeat. You get “deficit reduction” by cutting Medicare and raising taxes by more than $1 trillion: Medicare and other program cuts of $483 billion, and an extra $521 billion in new taxes and fees.

The cuts include cuts across Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program: $186 billion from permanent reductions in payment rates for fee-for-service, $118 billion for payment rate reductions based on bids submitted, and $43 billion from reducing payments to hospitals that serve low-income patients. In all, it’s a $483-billion cut from Medicare, Medicaid and CHIP.”

President Obama continued to lie to us today and called the vote “a big victory for the American people,” and challenged critics who say it will increase, not reduce costs.
“For all those who are continually carping about how this is somehow a big spending government bill, this cuts our deficit by $132 billion the first 10 years, and by over a trillion in the second,” Obama said. “That argument that opponents are making against this bill does not hold water.”

The Democrats are willing to risk loosing their majority in 2010 so they can change this country fundamentally into a model of a European social democracy. That is what Obama’s vision is for the U.S.A. Obama wants to level the playing field so we cannot be the super power any more — after that he can stop apologising for America to the world.

We have to fire all of them in 2010 and 2012. Give them a call and let them know in advance, Senators of the 111th Congress. Let’s go get ’em America.
