Healthcare: Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi may be compromising your health; hiding the provisions of their healthcare plan from the legislators and the American Public before the vote?
I cannot believe that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid would deny the American public one week to read their healthcare proposal. A proposal which affects every aspect of American life and promises to be the largest and most costly government power grab in the history of the United States.
Perhaps, we should seek the ouster of both of these politicians by pressuring their fellow democrats with the spectre of being re-called or never being re-elected. Or, even worse, major investigations into their fundraising and commercial activities.
It is unconscionable that the majority of legislators themselves are not allowed time to read, digest and debate the provisions of major bills which are having more of an impact on the functioning of the United States than a terrorist strike with a nuclear weapon.
In fact, one might argue that our enemies have co-opted the democrats and are now waging war against the American people by using their own laws, rules and regulations against them in an effort to cripple the United States’ economy and military activities. On these grounds, it might even be theoretically possible to bring impeachment actions against certain key legislators for “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
According to CNSNews.com …
Pelosi Won't Give Public a Week to Review Text of Health-Care Bill Before House Votes on It
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) will not give the public a week to review the final text of a health-care reform bill before it is voted on later this year."
“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) has also declined to commit to giving the public a week to read and consider the final health-care bill.”
This is not emergency legislation or even legislation which needs to be passed this year. This is supposed to be legislation affecting national policies after careful and thoughtful debate.
“At her press briefing on Thursday, Pelosi was asked whether the health-care bill would be handled differently than the stimulus bill, which came up in February. The 1,071-page final text of that bill was posted on the House Appropriations Committee’s Web site late on a Thursday night and then voted on the next day.”
“When the stimulus bill came out earlier this year, members and citizens had less than two days to review the final version that came out of the conference committee before it was voted on,” CNSNews.com asked Pelosi on Thursday. “Will you commit to giving Americans at least a week to review the full conference version of the health care bill before it is voted on? And also will you commit to submitting the final version to the CBO [Congressional Budget Office] so that they can report the cost to the public?”
“Pelosi would not commit to giving the public a week to review the bill, and did not respond to the question of having the CBO report on the cost of the final bill.”
There is no doubt in my mind that the actions of our legislators has now moved beyond simple greed and incompetence … and may now be approaching treason – action that gives aid and comfort to our ideological enemies on the far-left, the socialists and communists, who do not wish the United States and its citizens well.
There is little likelihood that the members of the House and Senate will investigate themselves and even the Supreme Court may be reluctant to hear a case involving malfeasance in another co-equal branch of government.
We certainly cannot look to the Administration and President Obama for relief as it is his malevolent initiatives that are driving us towards socialism.
Likewise, we cannot rely on the media to accurately assess and report the news without an ideological bias. It seems many in the mainstream media have compromised their journalistic ethics in favor of supporting the Obama regime. Not to mention that General Electric may have a company directive to support the Obama Administration as a corporate business model; trading media support at NBC and its affiliates for the potential of government contracts in healthcare, energy production and defense contracting.
It’s your life at stake …
Call your elected officials and let them know that you do not care for the way they are treating the American people when it comes to critical issues which will affect each and every citizen for years to come – perhaps being the difference between life and death, comfort and pain.
