We Will Remember In November

Congress got the chance to vote last night and the Democrats went against the will of the people to pass a bill that most do not want. The need for reform exists but people do not want this bill as the reform because it is intrusive and contains at least one unconstitutional provision.

Democrats ignored their constituents and voted with the party to takeover and control our lives. The bill is bad which is why the Democrats are in damage control mode. The bill is bad which is why they had to bribe their own members. The bill is bad which is why most Americans oppose it.

But they voted for it anyway. OK, Democrats in Congress got their chance to vote last night and we will get our chance in November. We will make them pay, and pay dearly, for ignoring our will and imposing theirs. They know they are in trouble and only hope that they have enough time to change people’s minds. They will also push for the rest of their agenda (amnesty, cap and trade, etc.) to keep us occupied and to make us forget what they did.

They will not be successful. When election day gets here they will pay with their jobs. We will not forget what they did. We will not forget the process and the way they ignored our Republican form of government to play dictator. We will not forget.

Those in safe districts likely have little to worry about but they will be in the minority when the election rolls around. Nancy Pelosi will be relegated to the minority. If they are smart they will give her a job cleaning latrines. That is where she belongs.

Meanwhile, people will hold Barack Obama accountable. He said on at least twenty occasions that he will reduce premiums by about $2500. He had better come through on that or he will be bounced on his progressive ass in 2012. He is likely a one term occupant anyway but Bill Clinton was able to wrangle a second term. Obama, with a Republican majority, might be able to do the same. We have had enough of this communist and we need to get rid of him after one term before he does even more damage.

It might be worthwhile for conservatives to sell all stock in companies who supported this mess.

We lost a battle yesterday but we have not lost the war. We need to get into our full battle rattle and take back our country.

We can start in November by making every one of them pay for what they did.

Never surrender, never submit.
Big Dog

    My thanks goes to President Bush and his wonderful GOP cronies in Congress (the 109th to be exact) that made possible the 2006 and 2008 victories and turned decent health care reform from a pipe dream into a reality. I would have voted for Bush myself in 2004 had I known his cluster**** of a presidency would somehow lead to such an important victory for progressives in America just a few years down the road.

    The Democrats may or may not lose big in November but politics is a pendulum and it’s certainly not swinging their direction any more. Either way they can go out knowing they accomplished a massive and important piece of their agenda. I just wish Ted Kennedy was still around to see it.

    • Big Dog says:

      I am glad Kennedy is dead and I only regret that he did not die instead of Mary Jo.

      Now if the rest can follow him and Murtha to hell I would be grateful.

      This will not stand. Lots of time to end it.

      Besides, I do not plan to follow it in any event. I will do what I want and still see whatever doctor I want and get any care I want.

      Besides, it might end up being thrown out as unconstitutional and then you can suck your thumb some more.

      Obama will go down in history as the worst communist bastard to ever hold office. I only hope he does not run around like Carter after he is out of office. Last thing I want is to hear more of this moron.

      I might have a post going up for his daughters. Be sure to check back soon.

      • Adam says:

        “I will do what I want and still see whatever doctor I want and get any care I want.”

        Wait, you’re not going to abide by the orders of the death panel? You’re such a rebel.

        I’m glad you’re starting to see the truth behind the health care bill though. Yes, you’ll still be seeing whatever doctor you want and getting whatever care you want. I will too. High five.

        “Obama will go down in history as the worst communist…”

        Well, Obama isn’t a communist of course but you may be talking about Texas history books where all kinds of things are wrong.

        DAR
        Wow. A little stress, a defeat, can really make a person reveal their true character.

        Bigd, naively and incorrectly, probably thinks that attacking the presidents children would be saying something bad about them. In reality it would only be saying something about Bigd.

        D.

  2. Big Dog says:

    The real funny thing would be if all the people who voted for Obama to get this health care all died before it took place. It would be as funny as Kennedy not being alive to see it happen.

    • Adam says:

      Yes, it would be funny if millions of liberals died simply because they believed in and voted for a policy you disagree with. I can’t wait until your side is back in charge of things…

  3. Big Dog says:

    You only think you will be able to see who you want and when you want. I will keep the health insurance I have and if it does not meet their standard then I will have none. Screw them.

    No, it will be bad and will cost a lot. BTW, if my premiums go up I am coming to your place and take the money from you.

    • Adam says:

      “BTW, if my premiums go up I am coming to your place and take the money from you.”

      Well, if you can’t fend for yourself then by all means I can give you the cash. But remember I’m paying taxes too and I pay for my own health insurance because I’m a business of one so cut me a break. I’m not as self made as you are…

  4. Darrel says:

    Bigd: “the Democrats are in damage control mode.”>>

    DAR
    Not even close. They’re in celebration mode (I just gave a lecture before 75 democrats today so I know a bit about this).

    On ABC on Sunday, Karl Rove (“The architect of disaster”) was specifically asked if passing this bill would be good for the Demo’s. He didn’t answer and that wasn’t by accident. He knew the answer and the answer is a profound plus for the Demos regardless of what you think of the bill.

    Perhaps you should have David Frum, GW Bush’s speechwriter, explain it to you:

    Excerpts:

    “Waterloo

    March 21st, 2010 at 4:59 pm by David Frum

    Conservatives and Republicans today suffered their most crushing legislative defeat since the 1960s.

    It’s hard to exaggerate the magnitude of the disaster. Conservatives may cheer themselves that they’ll compensate for today’s expected vote with a big win in the November 2010 elections. But:

    (1) It’s a good bet that conservatives are over-optimistic about November – by then the economy will have improved and the immediate goodies in the healthcare bill will be reaching key voting blocs…

    A huge part of the blame for today’s disaster attaches to conservatives and Republicans ourselves.

    At the beginning of this process we made a strategic decision: unlike, say, Democrats in 2001 when President Bush proposed his first tax cut, we would make no deal with the administration. No negotiations, no compromise, nothing. We were going for all the marbles. This would be Obama’s Waterloo – just as healthcare was Clinton’s in 1994.

    Only, the hardliners overlooked a few key facts: Obama was elected with 53% of the vote, not Clinton’s 42%. The liberal block within the Democratic congressional caucus is bigger and stronger than it was in 1993-94. And of course the Democrats also remember their history, and also remember the consequences of their 1994 failure.

    This time, when we went for all the marbles, we ended with none.”

    The rest…

    Republican Waterloo

    Bigd: “We will make them pay, and pay dearly…”

    DAR
    If the Demo’s had failed in their endeavor you might have been right. Since they successfully passed this historic legislation, a tremendous success, you aren’t right. “This is what change looks like.”

    See: Ten benefits which come online within six months. This is big. Huge.

    Notice especially number nine:

    9. Authorizes early funding of community health centers in all 50 states (Bernie Sanders’ amendment). Community health centers provide primary, dental and vision services to people in the community, based on a sliding scale for payment according to ability to pay.”

    For republicans, this isn’t about healthcare. It’s never been about heathcare. It’s about their extreme discomfort with the weak and poor in society not getting crapped on anymore. It’s about empowering the lower class so that they don’t have to live in fear and suffer and die in the wealthiest country in the world while the rich watch.

    D.

    • Adam says:

      Two more good pieces from Frum:

      No illusions please: This bill will not be repealed. Even if Republicans scored a 1994 style landslide in November, how many votes could we muster to re-open the “doughnut hole” and charge seniors more for prescription drugs? How many votes to re-allow insurers to rescind policies when they discover a pre-existing condition? How many votes to banish 25 year olds from their parents’ insurance coverage? And even if the votes were there – would President Obama sign such a repeal?

      And:

      So today’s defeat for free-market economics and Republican values is a huge win for the conservative entertainment industry. Their listeners and viewers will now be even more enraged, even more frustrated, even more disappointed in everybody except the responsibility-free talkers on television and radio. For them, it’s mission accomplished. For the cause they purport to represent, it’s Waterloo all right: ours.

    • Darrel says:

      Here is another comment from Mr. Frum that is very revealing:

      “We followed the most radical voices in the party and the movement, and they led us to abject and irreversible defeat.”

      He’s talking about the Bigd types and the million Glen Beck ditto-head clones out there. And he’s talking about what will continue to happen as long as the republicans continue to be defined by the nuttiest, whacked out, clueless elements of their shrinking party.

      When will they learn that their policies are immoral and unworkable for human society? When will they learn that their positions will continue to lead to:

      Abject and irreversible defeat.

      It doesn’t matter to me if they ever do.

      D.
      —————
      Frum also gives a 5 minute interview on this that can be viewed here.

  5. Big Dog says:

    No Darrel, the people you speak to are happy. How long did it take to get them out of their boxes?

    The politicians are in damage control mode. They know that now they have to sell this to the people in their districts who opposed it.

    They will lose badly.

  6. Big Dog says:

    OK Adam, I will let you keep your money. You better ask Obama to give you a break but he won’t be as forgiving as I.

    • Adam says:

      I’ll get him on the phone right away. I haven’t snitched on you yet this month anyway for your opposition to his agenda but it’s about that time. I’ll relay to him that he has definitely lost your vote for 2012.

  7. Big Dog says:

    The bill might never be repealed but many sections of it could be removed.

    Also, it might be struck down as unconstitutional.

    Interesting legal issue. The parliamentarian will have to rule that the fix it bill is not allowed because of Social Security provisions in it. The LAW says reconciliation cannot be used for SS items. If he rules it is not valid then Biden can overrule him.

    If he does then the rule of law will have been shattered. Tell me, if this happens will you support it?

    • Adam says:

      “Tell me, if this happens will you support it?”

      I would have trouble supporting anything that seriously broke the law but up to now you’ve only provided wishful thinking and GOP talking points when it comes to the unconstitutionality of said health care reform bill.

  8. Big Dog says:

    While you have him on the phone tell him I challenge him to a fistfight or a duel, his choice.

  9. Big Dog says:

    Not the reform bill, the reconciliation bill. There are many items that are not budget and will be struck. There is the SS provision and it is illegal.

  10. Big Dog says:

    Darrel, you assume the post would be attacking his daughters. It is not. I apologize to them and give them advice.

    Read it tomorrow.

  11. Big Dog says:

    Frum, yeah shrinking party. Were the Democrats who voted against it radical wack jobs as well.

    We will gain a lot of seats because of the radicals who disagree. Must mean that they did not like it. They should represent the people.

    Lots of lawsuits and challenges to follow.

    We will see but don’t claim victory yet.

  12. Adam says:

    Bloggers reporting now:

    Senate parliamentarian Alan Frumin has cleared the way for Democrats to advance a second health care bill under fast-track budget reconciliation procedures, ruling against a Republican challenge to the legislation concerning Social Security.

    • Big Dog says:

      Looks like it. I guess the rules do not apply now but he is the guy who gets to make the call. If he decides not to follow the rules or interprets them differently than one expects then it is on him.

      There are plenty of other challenges so we will see.

  13. Big Loss says:

    You have the right to your own opinion. But do not ever tell me what I do or do not think. No one speaks for me but myself and no one has ever asked if I was for or against the health care bill.

    No one that I know never been asked by any officals either or by any one here. So dont say you speak for the people unless every person gave you permission to speak for them

  14. Chey says:

    Big dog, I just love keeping up with your posts! I am praying for God to bless our country despite what is going on within it. You are a great voice to listen to! Thanks!
