Federal Funding for Abortion…It’s Here Despite Obama/B. Lincoln Promises

Pennsylvania has become the first state to receive funding for federally funded abortions. According to Red Orbit, Pennsylvania will receive $160,000,000 which will directly fund abortions through the high risk insurance pool. This was authorized by the same Obama administration who came out with the unenforceable executive order that they said would prevent abortions from being federally funded. We knew that was a lie.

Blanche Lincoln, on her website, in town hall meetings, and interviews, promised that she would not vote for any measure that would allow for abortions to be federally funded beyond what the Hyde amendment would allow. Here’s Blanche’s statement regarding abortion from last year:

The Health Care Reform Bill adopted by the House Energy and Commerce Committee (H.R. 3200) includes a provision that explicitly prohibits federal subsidies to any health plan that chooses to cover abortions beyond the Hyde Amendment restriction. Finally, I will not support a health care plan that allows federal funding of abortions beyond the Hyde Amendment.

If you remember the long debate of last summer, there were plenty of people from Sarah Palin to James Dobson who warned us repeatedly that Obamacare would allow for federally funded abortions. We knew…it’s kind of hard to believe that Blanche Lincoln couldn’t figure out that this is what would happen.

Pennsylvania is just the first state. Other states are following suit and will be receiving their money soon-(money that we don’t have by the way).

If you are tired of politicians pushing their social agendas, spending money that they don’t have, and then lying about it on top of everything else, make sure that you send a message, loud and clear this November!

Stop The Slaughter

Rep. Louise Slaughter attempts to silence the American People by "deeming" the health care bill passed.

Representative Louise Slaughter , Chairman House Rules Committee, is attempting to use a “self executing rule” that would send obamacare to the President for his signature.  The procedure is described in this Wall Street Journal article:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703909804575123512773070080.html

It is imperative that we contact the nine Democratic members of the House Rules Committee and tell them that we are apalled that such a measure would be considered and implore them to vote no on the measure.

Representative Louise M. Slaughter      202-225-3615     

Representative Joe McGovern            (202) 225-6101

Representative Alcee Hastings          (202) 225-1313     

Representative Doris Matsui             202.225.7163

Nancy Pelosi: “It will take courage to vote for the health care bill.”

Nancy Pelosi has told her Democratic colleagues that it will take courage to vote for the sweeping healthcare bill that will alter 1/6 of our economy.  I say it will take more than courage.

Let’s see, what else will it take to vote for the health care bill….hmmmm…….

  • Legislators will have to have the ability to ignore the wishes of their constituents who in poll after poll have said that they do not want this bill.
  • It will take the ability to look past the mountain of debt that already exists and the country’s inability to pay for this bill.
  • They will also have to have the ability to conveniently forget that medicare and social security are on the brink of bankruptcy.
  • Legislators will have to be able to look past and forget about the numerous other countries who are going broke because of socialized medicine.
  • It will take the ability to forget that the United States spends the most on healthcare because we have the highest level of medical technology. (Remember when well healed Canadians need healthcare, they come to the USA.)
  • It will take an astonishing lack of common sense to think that anything that the government does could actually save money.  (How many government plans have actually succeeded in lowering costs on anything?)
  • It will take an ability to forget that the Republicans have offered some ideas that would actually cut costs and could be done in the private sector. (tort reform, health savings accounts, etc.)

Well, I guess it will take more than courage to vote for this bill, Ms. Pelosi.

Harry Reid to Senate: Let The Bribery Begin!

The cost of buying the Senator from Louisiana’s vote?  300 million dollars.

The cost of buying the Senator from Nebraska, Ben Nelson’s vote?  500 million dollars.

The cost of seeing their faces when they are voted out by angry constituents?  Priceless.

No, this isn’t the script of a commercial, this is actually happening.   Senators are lining up for payoffs for their states in exchange for voting for the still to be seen Health Reform Bill in the Senate.  If you live in Arkansas, don’t let Blanche Lincoln cast her vote without hearing your voice.  And this is my warning to our readers:  If this bill does actually pass (and I think that Harry Reid will make sure that he buys enough votes to make it pass); then watch out for the conference hearing on the bill-they aren’t through trying to sneak things by the American people.  Now a warning for Congress:  you vote for this bill and other tax and spend bills like it at your own peril.  The American people will not forget and we will be lining up at voting booths ready to vote you out!

Identifying the “Fat Cats” in the Private Sector While Ignoring them in the Public Sector

Mr. Obama was on a tear telling the 60 Minutes interviewer that he did not come to Washington to help a bunch of “fat cats” on Wall Street.  Well, that’s just great.  I guess he just came to Washington to help the fat cats there!

Since Mr. Obama took office, government employees making over $170,00o per year have literally exploded.  Before he took office there was only one employee in the Department of Transportation making that amount.  Now there is over a thousand employees just in that one department alone making that princely sum. 

Most of the businesses that I am aware of have cut workers, cut salaries or frozen salaries due to the economic times that we find ourselves in.  Prudent measures that sometimes have to be taken to save a business from failing all together.  Not the government, though, while families and businesses are cutting their budgets, Washington is on a spending spree. 

Congress just sent to the President’s desk a spending bill with over 5000 earmarks that when totaled up was over 1.1 TRILLION dollars.  Apparently, budgeting, is only for us “little people”.   Oh, and while they’re spending like there’s no tomorrow with money that they printed up just for the occasion;  they are planning on taking over the health care system.  Are you kidding me!

I’m tired of it.  Let’s send a message to Washington.  Let’s vote out these tax and spenders.  Let’s take back our government.
