What's going on in Washington

Don't Be Polite or Non-Ideological: Fight This Un-American Legislation!

While we are all having a nice Christmas Holiday, Washington is trying to ram this health care bill down our throat!
Here is part of Rushe's transcript today.

RUSH: Here's Senator Jim DeMint, Republican, South Carolina, last night on the Senate floor.

DEMINT: There's one provision that I found particularly troubling, and it's under Section C titled, "Limitation on changes to this subsection." And I quote: "It shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment, or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection." This is not legislation, it's not law. This is a rule change. It's a pretty big deal. We will be passing a new law and at the same time creating a Senate rule that makes it out of order to amend or even repeal the law.

RUSH: And this is not how Senate rules are made. Now, the language is tough, but this is how dictators operate. This is how people who know that nobody wants what they're offering operate. People who have power and who do not and who are very well aware that they're running against the wishes and against the grain of the people they supposedly govern make it impossible for those people to do anything about it, in an illegal way. This is not how you change the rules of the Senate. DeMint continued.

DEMINT: I'm not even sure that it's constitutional, but if it is, it most certainly is a Senate rule. I don't see why the majority part wouldn't put this in every bill. If you like your law, you most certainly would want it to have force for future Senates. I mean we want to bind future Congresses. This goes to the fundamental purpose of Senate rules, to prevent a tyrannical majority from trampling the rights of the minority or of future Congresses.

RUSH: Okay, that's Jim DeMint on the floor of the Senate last night. Now, why are they making this provision unrepealable? What we're talking about here is the Independent Medicare Advisory Council making it impossible or difficult for future Congresses to legislate in that area, to change this. Bill Kristol points out: "Because the heart of the bill is the attempt to get control of our health care permanently in the hands of federal bureaucrats, who would allegedly know better than doctors and patients what’s good for them, and who would cut access to care and the quality of care so there’s more money left over for various big government liberal social programs." This is just outrageous what is happening.

It's just awful and unreal that this is happening right here in America. It is socialism in its purest form right here on our turf. Have you seen this yet?:

I wish we could have been apart of it, but I just found out about it yesterday.

Merry Christmas, dear Marie!
