I’ve seen a lot of commentary today about how Nancy Pelosi is insane to push a healthcare vote the Saturday after the Democrat trouncing in the elections this week. Republicans aren’t even a factor at this point. It is a given that none of them are voting for this beast. The only question, since the majority Americans hate this bill, is how many Democrats are willing to throw themselves on the sword and lose their cushy jobs next election?
This week’s elections demonstrated that the Boy Band of Politics Barack Obama’s star power has lost its luster. The people are royally pissed. Democrats know that if they vote for the healthcare bill they are going to get tossed out of office. Pelosi is pushing it anyway.
Here is the thing. Pelosi isn’t crazy. (well, not that kind of crazy at least) She knows exactly what she is doing. Like I predicted several months ago, Barack Obama will be a one term president, and he knows it. The true believer ideologues know that. This is a suicide mission. They know that this bill is garbage, but it is also the ultimate power grab. Should it pass, the government will control our health, and by extension, since everything effects our health, they’ll get to control everything. This new bill talks about guns and vending machines.
Pelosi doesn’t care that a bunch of democrats will lose their jobs, because she is in it to win it. If this passes, then America will be changed, and it will be almost impossible to change it back. Pelosi is a Marxist, and Marxists are patient. The blue dog democrats are expendable. All that matters to her is to shift the country further left. Nancy would love for them to vote for this, then lose their seats, because her work will have been done, and it is hard to untighten the noose when you’re already swinging from the gallows.
This bill isn’t about insuring the sick, lazy, poor, stupid, or your Cousin Pooky. This bill is about twisting America into a socialist country. If all it was about was forcing insurance companies to be more competitive or to take people with pre-existing conditions, they could do that with a five page bill. This thing is now 1,900 pages.
Think about that for a second. 1,900 pages. Take four reams of paper and stack them on top of each other. The bill from August was 800 pages shorter, and none of our congressmen had read that one either. Just what kind of bullshit is going to be crammed into this one?
Unemployment is officially around 10%, and most of us realize that stat is understated. Yet somehow our government’s top priority is pushing a bill that everyone knows will increase unemployment and raise taxes. Obama has now spent more money than anyone else, ever, combined, in one eighth of the time, and his next big idea is a bill that creates another hundred federal bureaucracies. The American people’s priorities might be jobs and prosperity, but Obama’s is priority is total Marxist control.
“Silly, Correia. Obama’s not a Marxist. Enough of your terrible right wing hate speech.”
Oh, my apologies. However could I think that a guy who has hired a bunch of self-proclaimed communists, and who surrounds himself with union thugs, and who’s mentors were Marxists, and who hung out with socialists in college, and who has fostered unprecedented power grabs in record time, and who’s employees seem to quote a lot of Mao, and who has never pushed one single thing that Karl Marx himself would disapprove of, could possibly not be as pure as the driven snow!
After the stimulus bills, the government controls or directly oversees about thirty percent of our economy. With healthcare they’ll gain another 18%. That means that the government will be controlling about half of our nation’s economy. So, wait a second… will all those people who told me I was crazy for calling Obama a Marxist last year finally admit that I was right when the government controls HALF of the business in America? No? So,when then? 70%? Is he still a moderate when the government controls 99% of the free market? I won’t know, because I’ll probably be in a ‘reeducation’ camp by then. Net neutrality, don’t you know.
In the last election, the Republican beat the Democrat in Virginia by 18 points. This is a pretty evenly divided purple state. Then the Republican won in bluest of blue New Freaking Jersey. JERSEY! I didn’t know they still allowed Republicans in Jersey. Pelosi has held up New York 23 as a victory, which is kind of strange when you realize that the Democrat (endorsed by the Republican) beat a 3rd party candidate (who the GOP actually spent money attacking), after the locals got sick and tired of people who’d support healthcare and went RINO hunting, and the liberal Republican she-hag only dropped out of the race a week ago. He lost by 5%, which ironically is what the Republican got because she was still on the ballot. So picking up that one congressional seat was somehow better than losing two governorships, Nancy? Now that is some good spin.
This is it guys. This is the big push. This isn’t about healthcare. This is about control. I’m sick and tired of politicians wanting to control my life. I just want them to leave me ALONE. So now I find myself counting on the friggin’ Democrats as the last line of defense to do the right thing… That is unnerving.
