ObamaCare

The Senate Conservatives Fund has not endorsed anyone. They say “Minnesota is on our 2014 Priority List because it presents conservatives with a potential pick-up opportunity. Incumbent Democratic Senator Al Franken has an extremely liberal voting record and is running for re-election in a state that could be competitive for Republicans.”

Personally I would vote for anyone over Al Franken. I remember when he won that seat, I questioned it then and have never seen or read anything that answers those questions. There is a campaign to defeat Al Franken, check out the article by Lloyd Marcus.

OBAMACARE: THE FIX IS IN!

In August 2009 I read and analyzed the 1100 pages of HR 3200 that was the original version of the Affordable Care Act. I wrote an article about the proposed legislation that became the first one posted on this blog. That article has recently resurfaced several times and gone viral as an email.

Of course, it was not about the version of the law that finally passed, that version originated in the U.S. Senate and was H.R. 3590, originally a House bill on a totally unrelated matter. This was one of the first ruses by the Democrats designed to bypass the Constitutional requirement that all revenue bills begin in the House.

In my original article titled “The Truth About the Health Care Bills” I stated that “The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.” I was attacked by the left immediately for making inaccurate claims about what the bill said, yet everything I predicted has either happened or is in the process of being implemented.

I also concluded in that original article that “this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

In addition, I stated that “This legislation also provides for access by the appointees of the Obama administration of all of your personal healthcare information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.”

H.R. 3590 is over 2700 pages and in many respects is worse than the original version. It establishes 138 new federal commissions and agencies; all under the control of Obama. The law is being used to violate the 1st Amendment rights of religious institutions and religious owners of businesses. It violates the 4th Amendment by giving the IRS access to our personal information, and we all know how careful it is with such information.

As for Obama’s promises, people are losing their insurance that they were told they could keep and they will also lose their doctors. But, of course, our President has fixed that. His majesty has ordered insurance companies to renew the policies, but just until after the 2014 elections. That is the way this President fixes things for the American people.

Now, how is he going to fix the lie that insurance premiums would go down when they are going up, and the lie that health care costs would go down when they are rising? Then there is the lie that thousands of new jobs would be created in the health care industry when in fact almost 50,000 health care workers have been laid off so far this year. Of course, new jobs as navigators are being created for Obama loyalists in Acorn, Planned Parenthood, and the Urban League. Navigators for a system that doesn’t work.

Thus, I reiterate what I said in 2009. This law was never about providing affordable health care to Americans; it was and still is about giving the Federal government power to control the lives of Americans. The ACA was designed to fail so the ultimate goal can be achieved, total government control over healthcare, i.e. socialized medicine.

The Senate Conservatives Fund has not endorsed anyone so far. They state “Iowa is on our 2014 Priority List because it presents conservatives with a potential pick-up opportunity. Incumbent Democratic Senator Tom Harkin is retiring and a strong conservative can win this open seat. President Obama only narrowly won Iowa in 2012 with 52% of the vote.”

The candidates running for the seat are David Young R , Joni Ernst R , Matt Whitaker R , Sam Clovis R Supports The Fair Tax. I think I would opt for Sam Clovis simply becasue he supports The Fair Tax.

On Oct 28 2013 The Senate Conservatives Fund endorsed Rob Maness for Senate in 2014. The Senate Conservatives Fund does not endorse incumbents. Rob Maness is also endorsed by The National Defense PAC.

Louisiana is on The Senate Conservatives Fund 2014 Priority List because it presents conservatives with a major pick-up opportunity. Incumbent Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu is extremely vulnerable. Landrieu has a very liberal voting record and is running for re-election in a state President Obama lost in 2012.

Remember that she was bought and paid for when they voted on ObamaCare. VOTE HER OUT

Alexandria, VA — Senate Conservatives Action (SCA) announced a new 30-second TV ad Tuesday, which exposes U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell’s decision to help the Democrats fund Obamacare. The ad (“Kentucky”) will run statewide on broadcast and cable television from October 30 to November 12. The cost of the ad buy is $330,000.

“Mitch McConnell says he opposes Obamacare when he’s in Kentucky, but then he helps the Democrats fund Obamacare when he’s in Washington,” said SCA Executive Director Matt Hoskins. “Mitch McConnell has lost his way. It’s why more and more Kentucky Republicans are supporting Matt Bevin, a true conservative who will fight for their values.”

No more Good Old Boys Club. VOTE THEM OUT

Remember way back in the distant past – like, two weeks ago – when every Democrat on Capitol Hill was united in the determination that ObamaCare must not be changed, not be delayed, not be modified in any way, because to do so would be a dirty, nasty, right-wing Republican trick?

My. How things change. Dana Bash of CNN tweets that the 13 Democrat senators up for re-election in 2014 are suddenly singing a very different tune:

Well that’s nice of them, but these same 13 Democrats voted in 2009 to create this monstrosity in the first place. And don’t forget how that went down either. Remember that the Senate passed a version of the bill that everyone knew had major problems, taking advantage of its 60-seat, filibuster-proof majority to push the bill through. Then Senator Ted Kennedy died, and was replaced by Republican Scott Brown. That meant the Senate could no longer stop a filibuster, which it would need to do to pass any improved bill coming out of conference after the House passed its version. The only way at that point to pass ObamaCare to have the House pass the Senate bill with no changes, then abuse reconciliation rules to pass the fixes that were needed.

Abusing power is something Harry Reid is only too happy to do.

So every one of these 13 Democrats is responsible for creating the mess in which we now find ourselves. Their sudden conversion to the need for a delay is very nice, but it’s not enough. If you live in any one of these states, I urge you to vote for their Repubican opponents next year. If you do not, you could at least send the Republican candidates some money. There needs to be accountability for one’s part in creating a monster.

One other point about that: The conventional wisdom is that Republicans are silly for talking about ObamaCare repeal because they are in the minority and obviously don’t have the votes. I have a question about that: Why should Democrats not be expected to vote for repeal? ObamaCare is a disaster, and this becomes more obvious and more serious by the day. Why should it be considered acceptable that they put their party loyalty ahead of their obligation to the nation and refuse to fix this clusterfark?

Delay is not enough. And refusing to vote for repeal just because you are a Democrat is not acceptable. You are supposed to be an American first, so clean up the mess you helped to make, and stop waving your party label around as the reason you should not be expected to do so.

Here are the Dirty Baker’s Dozen:

  • Mark Begich (Alaska)
  • Mark Pryor (Arkansas)
  • Mark Udall (Colorado)
  • Mary Landrieu (Louisiana)
  • Al Franken (Minnesota)
  • Max “Trainwreck” Baucus (Montana)
  • Jeanne Shaheen (New Hampshire)
  • Tom Udall (New Mexico)
  • Kay Hagan (North Carolina)
  • Jeff Merkeley (Oregon)
  • Tim Johnson (South Dakota)
  • Mark Warner (Virginia)
  • Jay Rockefeller (West Virginia)

In addition to the Dirty Baker’s Dozen are Michigan’s Carl Levin and Iowa’s Tom Harkin, who performed long-overdue service to the nation by announcing their retirements. Whoever emerges from Republican primaries in Michigan and Iowa deserves major support.
