Democrat Transparency Behind Closed Doors

Henry Waxman and many of the top Democrats have returned to DC to start working on reconciling the House and Senate versions of the health care overhaul. The House does not reconvene until January 12th and the Senate after that. The reason that these slugs are gathering is so they can work on an end around with the White House.

The House and Senate leaders are working on ways to keep from using the reconciliation process properly to merge the bills. The game will involve bouncing amendments back and forth and working out more back room deals in a fashion that does not allow Republicans to participate and because the normal process would require 60 votes each time the Senate had to vote. They had to bribe a lot of people to get 60 the last time and they do not want to go through that mess again.

This will also allow Pelosi to provide cover for some Democrats in the House but Republicans are not the only ones who are being screwed in this game. Democrats who have certain items they will not waiver on will not be able to ensure what they want is included. Pelosi will likely have the votes she needs and Reid will not have to do anything ethical like follow the Senate rules.

It was Pelosi who promised the most ethical Congress. It was Obama who promised transparency and all Democrats have thrown that word around quite a bit. They were not transparent during the initial work on this disaster and they are even less so now. These slugs are hiding behind closed doors and working on stuff out of the eye of the public.

They are hiding like the cowardly vermin that they are. This is no way to run a government and one can be sure that if the parties were reversed the liberal bloggers and the Democrats would be having a cow and talking about how the process was being hijacked.

Regardless of how one feels about the health care bill there are rules and procedures that must be followed if we are to maintain a legitimate government. This closed door stuff is more in line with Russia, China and a host of other nations that rule in a manner that was never in our design.

The Democrats and their leader Obama have completely shredded the Constitution and the rules that govern the House and Senate. They are hiding like cowards and pushing what they want regardless of the will of the people and regardless of the desires of some of their own members.

Now is the time for a Joe Lieberman to step up and say he will vote against final passage if this is not done properly.

Now, more than ever, we need the Republican to win Ted Kennedy’s seat in this month’s special election. We need these things now because our Republic has been hijacked by a bunch of cutthroat thugs who are moving closer and closer to iron fist rule of the Communists and less in accordance with the Republican form of government we were promised by our Founders and that is clearly spelled out in the Constitution.

I know that the Democrats think losing what they have in numbers is acceptable as long as they get what they want now. That is their choice to make and as foolish as it is, they are moving full steam ahead.

They will have a bloodbath in the next election but are they looking for more than that? Are they begging people to walk into the Capitol and throw them out onto the street and put in place a new government? Are they begging us to overthrow them by force? We have a solemn duty to cast off the bonds of oppressive government. We have a duty to get rid of any government that does not follow the rule of law.

We have elections to do that but it seems as if these morons are begging people to enter the Capitol and kick their asses out.

Nothing would make me happier than seeing them in shackles on a plane to Gitmo but I am content to wait for the next election.

What will come first, the next election or the tipping point?

    “…in a fashion that does not allow Republicans to participate…”

    Yes, because the Republicans were just trying so hard to participate in the process up until now…

    “…our Republic has been hijacked by a bunch of cutthroat thugs who are moving closer and closer to iron fist rule of the Communists…”

    If by hijacked you mean democratically elected. You act like everything the Democrats in Congress have done is against what they campaigned on, like they’ve gotten into office on lies and now they do whatever they want. Health care reform has been on their agenda for decades and we all knew that when we tossed the Republicans out on their butts.

    “They will have a bloodbath in the next election…”

    Not if the RNC can’t get it’s fund raising in gear. Look for the DNC to continue to drastically out raise the RNC with money for local elections and then the Tea Party movement to fracture what remains of the GOP coalition. You can surely erode the Democratic majority but a lot will have to go just right between now and November to get the bloodbath you want.

      Nice.

      “GOP cash woes threaten House bids

      The National Republican Congressional Committee, the key cog in helping to finance GOP campaigns, has banked less than a third as much money as its Democratic counterpart and is ending the year with barely enough money to fully finance a single House race — no less the dozens that will be in play come 2010…

      The fundraising disparity between the two committees is striking: The DCCC outraised the NRCC this year by more than $18 million, according to FEC figures at the end of November. The NRCC has only $4.3 million left in its campaign account — with more than $2 million in debt — leaving it with just a pittance to fund the dozens of races it hopes to aggressively contest.

      The DCCC, meanwhile, is sitting on a $15.3 million nest egg (with $2.6 million owed), steadily expanding its cash-on-hand advantage over Republicans throughout the year.”

        There’s time for the funds to raise but not too much time. The first primary is in February and most will be in swing by the end of June.

        My favorite from the article you linked:

        “At the end of the day, we don’t need as much money as the Democrats to win the majority,” said McCarthy. “They have to defend going in a direction America doesn’t want to go. … They need more money because they have to defend something the American people don’t want.”

        That’s rich. Just keep telling yourselves that, Republicans. This election is in the bag for you already. You don’t need to out raise anybody…

  2. Some Democrats believe that passing a federalized health care bill will guarantee a permanent leftward shift in American politics, such that they will never again be forced out of their current hegemony. Others are more philosophical, and say that loss of some Democrat-held seats is worth it to create this “compassionate” reform. Obama himself has said that he’s comfortable with the idea of being a one-termer, if he can get his agenda enacted before he loses the Oval Office.

    The first thing to note in this connection is that the bills passed by the two houses of Congress are different in many ways, but not in this: Constraints and costs take effect immediately, while supposed benefits don’t come into play until 2012. So the political dynamics are maximally perverse for the Democrats and favorable for the Republicans…assuming the reconciliation process doesn’t tinker that feature away.

    The second thing is that this isn’t the only game in town: there’s a measure to federalize all voter registration on the table as well. Given ACORN’s and SEIU’s campaigns of vote fraud and voter intimidation, the redistricting to take place after Census 2010, and the Democrats’ efforts at registering non-citizens from groups likely to vote in their favor, it might be enough to keep them in power despite the unpopularity of their agenda.

    One way or another, freedom is under siege. The Constitution is routinely ignored. The mechanisms that were intended to safeguard freedom are under intense pressure. Americans who love freedom had better be ready to rise to its defense, if we want our nation to be more than just a EUrocratic social-fascist welfare state.
