Representation? Democrat House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers Says What’s the point of Lawmakers Reading the Health Care Bill


“WE THE PEOPLE” … take back your country and make politicians responsible to represent and work for you!


“I, (name of Member), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” (Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution, Members of Congress shall be bound by oath)

If a Representative of the people cannot read a bill before voting, then you should be thrown out office. How is it not mandatory that a politician read and understand a bill prior to obligating “We the People” to it’s contents?

One would think at the very least that an elected Representative of “We the People” would have the common decency to read the bills presented before them prior to voting.  Not so says Michigan Democrat and House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers who questioned the point of lawmakers reading the health care bill.

 “I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Conyers.

“What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”

What ever happened to the days of Schoolhouse Rocks and “I’m Just a Bill”? Patience and courage? Patience? Why does everyone think that Obama wants to rush through Obamacare at the speed of light? What is also rather telling is Obamacare was hardly dreamed up by the people back home. It was born from the want of government take over of health care.

“Gee bill, you certainly have a lot of patience and courage. Well I got this far. When I started I wasn’t even a bill I was just an idea. Some folks back home decided they wanted a law passed so they called their local Congressman.”

 One might ask, what good are you at representing your constituents if you do not even bother to read what you would vote on? How ignorant could one truly be? Because Conyers claims he cannot read the bill, understand or interpret it, therefore he should not read it. Who elected this idiot?

Go to Let Freedom Ring USA and read the “Responsibility Health Care Pledge” that would require your House of Representative members and Senators actually read the health care bill before voting. How sad a government we have elected to represent us, “We the People” that we would actually have to have them sign an oath that they would read before voting.

One would think that with so many Americans skeptical of Obamacare and demanding answers to specific questions that politicians would take their jobs seriously and read before they vote.   America, take back your country and make the politicians responsible to represent, “We the People.”

      How about these ‘sworn’ servants consider themselves
      Superior to ‘We the People” and the Constitution?

      The answer, of course, is to revoke all the ‘special’
      privileges these self-serving folks have established for
      themselves. Their ‘Health Care’ should be our “Health Care’.
      Their inflated salaries do not insure intelligent servitude
      to the People. How about retirement plans that are
      reasonable rather than full pay retirement after one stint?
      These politicians are supposed to be ‘of us, from us, and
      for us’. Take a long look….is this the way it is? Who are
      they really serving?

      It would be interesting to know:

      Who actually wrote this bill?

      Seriously, who wrote it?

      They don’t care. It does not affect them, they will not be part of the system. They didn’t read anything else they signed & passed under cover of night, why would this be any different.

      I also would like to know who wrote this bill?

      Why would you sign something that you don’t understand? Unless you just don’t care.

      My understanding is that Representative Conyers’ wife has a similar attitude about the criminal law.

      Obowma is simply following the Rules for Radicals
      by Saul Alinsky when he attempts to ‘swamp’ our
      System to the point of collapse. Conyer’s, in his
      innocent observation, underscores the process.
      All the hullaballoo and urgency demanded by this
      Administration is in perfect alignment with the
      Alinsky teaching of destroying a Society in order
      to rebuild it as the Destroyer desires.

      Read the book and see what our Destroyer is up to!
      ‘Oath Schmoath’.

      Nearly gasped when I read this! This is an actual email.(from one of his former Campaign Directors, Mitch Stewart?)..similar to the ones he sent out from his Website when he was campaigning from Our President to the General Public !!!

      OBAMA’s “Organizing for America”

      (You know we’re in trouble when it starts off like this:)
      You’ve probably seen the headlines: Opponents of change are doing everything they can to delay health insurance reform. As a Republican strategy memo concluded, “If we slow this sausage-making process down, we can defeat it.”

      THEY WANT YOU TO DONATE a 1.00 EACH DAY UNTIL THE HEALTH CARE REFORM PASSES IN SENATE !!!!!!!! Unbelievable the propoganda in this email.
