House Democrats Pass Nationalized Government Run Health care … Democrats Win, Constitution & America Loses
Good God, what have they done? What have Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats just done to America and the Constitution?
House Democrats have just passed their nationalized health care bill. The bill passed 220 – 215. So much for that bipartisanship that President Obama promised. 176 Republicans voted against the bill, a long with 39 Democrats voted in opposition to nationalized healthcare.
In the end it was the opposition to the Democrats nationalized take over of health care by Republicans and 39 Democrats that was the bi-partisan vote, not it’s passage.
A triumphant Speaker Nancy Pelosi likened the legislation to the passage of Social Security in 1935 and Medicare 30 years later.
“It provides coverage for 96 percent of Americans. It offers everyone, regardless of health or income, the peace of mind that comes from knowing they will have access to affordable health care when they need it,” said Rep. John Dingell, the 83-year-old Michigan lawmaker who has introduced national health insurance in every Congress since succeeding his father in 1955
America, ask yourself this … how does a healthcare bill that claims to reform and cover individuals cost $1.2 trillion and only provide coverage to 96% of Americans? One would say that only 4% of Americans really don’t have health care in the United States when you factor out illigals and those that did not want health care coverage as a choice.
The Imperial (Democrat) Congress (see vote result here) has just taken the first step to push down the throats of Americans nationalized healthcare care. A victory for the Democrat party and a loss for America and Americans.
The Gateway Pundit has more.
Michelle Malkin’s Live Blogging the event, or should we say circus.
Our Founding Fathers are rolling over in their collective graves tonight.
Don’t ever forget what just happened and who was responsible for this partisan government take over of 1/6th of the US economy. Hear Nancy Pelosi’s words loud and clear. The extremist bill coming out of the Imperial Congress was completely endorsed by the so-called moderate President Barack Obama.
“Oh what a night,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi said moments after the vote, after fielding a congratulatory call from President Barack Obama. “Without President Obama in the White House, this victory would not have been possible. He provided the vision and the momentum for us to get the job done for the American people.”
Obama has made health care reform his signature legislative priority — and he put his personal prestige on the line Saturday by traveling to the Capitol to rally Democrats, telling them to “answer the call of history” by passing the bill.
Election have consequences and this is what happens when you do not pay attention and vote for a social science project rather than understanding the policies of a candidate. How many people would have voted for Democrats and Obama last November if they knew this bill would be crammed down their throats?
How irresponsible could a Congress be? With 10.2% unemployment, people loses their jobs, their homes and struggling mightily … Imperial Congress passes a bill that would cost $1.2 trillion to an already out of control deficit. And it still would not cover every American. WAKE UP AMERICA!!! Wasn’t that the supposed purpose of the bill in the first place? To cover all Americans! Wake up, the point of the bill was to control you.
UPDATE I: Here’s some joke journalism from the Washington Post … get this, they are trying to pass the House vote off as bi-partisan. UNREAL! More from the state controlled media WAPO:
After months of acrimonious partisanship, Democrats closed ranks on a 220-215 vote that included 39 defections, mostly from the party’s conservative ranks. But the bill attracted a surprise Republican convert: Rep. Anh “Joseph” Cao of Louisiana, who represents the Democratic-leaning district of New Orleans and had been the target of a last-minute White House lobbying campaign. GOP House leaders had predicted their members would unanimously oppose the bill.
As pointed out by Powerline, it was the charade of the Stupak Amendment that allowed any of this to occur. Do you honestly think Democrats are not going to add paid abortion back to this bill?
