I've tried real hard not to be political on this blog, but Obamacare passing in the wee hours of the morning is total BS. Where's the transparency now President Obama?
And the fact that the White House receptionist hangs up on you when you call and wouldn't allow me and you, the American Citizens they are beholden to and supposedly work for, to leave a message for my representatives - Jane Harmon, Dianne Feinstein and Ms. "call me Senator," whatshername is infuriating.
I'm embarrassed I even went to O's inauguration and thought it might be Ok with him in office. Whatever happened to "We the People"? The Constitution? That's all I want to know. I'm so disgusted with this travesty of justice, the bribery "Louisiana Deal" and more bribery "Corn Husker Deal" involved.
Sickening. Despicable. Total Travesty.
Exactly as the Wall Street Journal says:Change Nobody Believes In "A bill so reckless that it has to be rammed through on a partisan vote on Christmas eve."
And people who think nothing is wrong with this passing are going to be in for a shock when their health costs go through the roof, health care is rationed, Medicare is deeply cut, they are fined for not having insurance, our national debt continues to go through the roof, taxes are increased ($518 billion), a bailout for insurance companies, and everything else this means.
Millions of people will STILL be uninsured too!
And the benefit for all this doesn't even kick in until four years after it takes affect. Hello? What is wrong with this picture? Like anything else the government is responsible for running is successful.
Post Office, DMV, Amtrak anyone? I'm just furious. We are totally and royally screwed.
It's like everyone in Congress and the Senate looked at America and say F U. We will do whatever we want because we can. I feel like I'm living in a totalitarian country right now with dictators telling me how I will now live.
Sorry, just had to vent because I don't have insurance and know this is going to affect me personally. And not for the good. I don't care what they say. If you haven't figured it out yet, the Government lies.
Passing Obamacare this morning is so wrong on so many levels. Wake up America! You are losing your freedom and rights right under your noses. 57% of voters said it would be better to not pass it according to the Rasmussen Poll today. Why isn't DC listening?
I am so angry. I wrote the White House, my "representatives" Jane, Dianne and Ms. Call me Senator, and told them exactly how I felt. I encourage you to do the same. Click the links above. They need to hear from you.
I need to take up kick boxing again, start dancing or something active to get rid of this energy. Totally ruined my love buzz. Definitely not a Christmas present I asked Santa for this year.
God help us all. And God Bless America - we need it.
The only good thing to happen politically today is that Copenhagen was a total wash - no binding treaties and really nothing accomplished. Whew. Gotta love the snowstorm too. But the EPA regulating carbon dioxide... that's another story.
