Do you remember a couple of years ago when House Republicans were asking Nancy Pelosi to come back to Washington so something could be done about rising energy costs in America? If you’ve been following me for any length of time, I’m sure you remember, but just in case…
I remember it well because I posted videos every day, sometimes more than one per day to help get the word out. Republicans simply wanted the chance to debate the matter. Funny thing. Barack Obama was not President at that time, but people seem to forget that Nanny State Nancy and Scary Harry have controlled the House and the Senate for several years now. They have been stifling debate from day one.
The Democrats accuse the Republicans of “stalling tactics” when it comes to health-care, but the Republicans are simply standing up for the American people. They did it with immigration, they did it with the energy bill, and they are doing it again now. They’re not perfect, and many of them have their own faults, but the Republicans are simply speaking (and acting) for their constituents.
The American people do not like the current bills that have been introduced by the White House, the House, or the Senate. Nancy Pelosi avoids the fact that House Republicans have introduced 70 different bills and amendments, 66 of which haven’t even seen the light of day in committee or on the House floor. Instead, President Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi claim the Republicans don’t have a solution. You can only sweep so much under the rug before you trip on it!
Now, even though the bill is unpopular with the majority of the American people, President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid are planning to shove the bill through with ‘reconciliation’ which only requires a simple majority vote.
The White House called for a “simple up-or-down” vote on health care legislation Sunday as Speaker Nancy Pelosi appealed to House Democrats to get behind President Barack Obama’s chief domestic priority even it if threatens their political careers.
In voicing support for a simple majority vote, White House health reform director Nancy-Ann DeParle signaled Obama’s intention to push the Democratic-crafted bill under Senate rules that would overcome GOP stalling tactics.
A simple majority vote wasn’t good enough in the House when the Republicans wanted to introduce their own energy bill. What makes it good enough now?
Hasn’t America been led in the wrong direction long enough? The American people want a health-care solution that works. The American people have made it clear they do not like the health-care plan Democrats have proposed, and we can’t develop a new one if Democrats won’t discuss it.
Just yesterday, Nancy Pelosi said, ” A bill can be bipartisan without bipartisan votes“. She’s so out of touch with reality she can’t even speak coherently.
She is even urging her colleagues to back the current health-care plan even if it threatens their political careers because she feels the American people are not educated enough to know when they see, hear and smell the bullshit contained in the current bills being bandied about on the Hill.
What happened to the Democrat plan to lead from 2006? What about their plan to govern? Locking down the House and Senate, intimidating and bribing members into voting for their proposals, and stifling the other side of the debate is not leading or governing.
It’s criminal and it’s time for them to go.
The Democrats in Washington, D.C. have made one thing clear. Whether the issue is immigration, energy, or health-care, they have no idea what the American people want and it’s high time we, the American people, sent them a message and send them packing.
