TIME TO START HOUNDING YOUR SENATORS

When we elect rascals to public office, then they weary us with their schemes.  Because their ambitions know no bounds, we must keep them under constant watch.

Congressional budget crunchers said Thurday the Democrats’ latest health care plan would hold down federal red ink for at least 20 years, an assessment that gave supporters hope as the Senate moved gingerly toward a historic debate.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said that Majority Leader Harry Reid’s 10-year, $848-billion bill would produce a net reduction of $130 billion in federal deficits in its first decade. Perhaps more significantly, the legislation would continue to give back over the next 10 years and beyond, the budget umpires said, because “added revenues and cost savings would probably be greater” than the cost of covering uninsured Americans.

The budget office put a big asterisk on its forecast, using words like “imprecision” and “uncertainty” to describe the long-range projection. It noted that, overall, health care spending remains on an unsustainable path. (continue here)

What the Congressional Budget Office appears to be trying to tell us — without actually saying so — is that when liars figure, figures lie.   Because the bill is a 2074-page monstrosity, it is doubtful that any senator will actually read it or understand its full implications.

Even though government-run health care and the Democrat’s plans for health care reform are unpopular, the Democrats have not given up on their outrageous scheme.  So there is nothing we can do except weary our leaders as much as they would weary us.

Please contact your senators at www.senate.gov.  There are two votes where this bill can be stopped.  The first could be as early as Saturday.  That vote will allow debate to begin.  The second vote will be to end debate.  Both votes will require a majority of 60 votes.

Here is the contact information for Virginia’s senators.

  1. Here is a more accurate news story.

    The Democrats intend to tax the stuffing out anyone who does not buy government health care. They plan to tax high-value insurance policies. Please try to understand how these people work. With inflation, which with deficit spending is already built into their plans, soon all health insurance policies with be high-value insurance policies. Thus, only the rich will be able to afford private health care.

    These people want to make our health care just like the public school system. That is a system where only the rich elites can afford private schools for their children.

    Welcome to the next leg on the road to serfdom.
