It is really getting old seeing the media, the Democrats, and even President Obama claim that the Republican party and Independent party have provided no alternative bills to health care. This could not be further from the truth. The parties other than Democrats have offered numerous bills and amendments only to have them left in committee or scrapped altogether because it does not follow the President’s and the Democrat’s agenda.

President Obama has not met with any GOP members since April of this year and has not looked at any legislation presented by GOP members at all. And he doesn’t intend to either. The reason I say this is because he makes this clear in the executive order he signed on April 8, 2009 which created the White House Office of Health Reform. In this document it states that one of this departments functions is to “integrate the President’s policy agenda concerning health reform across the Federal Government.” This tells me, that he had a concrete vision of what he wants included in health reform and wants it to be spread throughout the Federal Government to support that agenda. So why would he entertain any other ideas? He wouldn’t, he hasn’t, and he is not going to do so in the future. The speeches of how Obama wants bipartisanship is all for show and are completely empty.

On national television Obama has spoken lies saying that he would listen and embrace alternative solutions to the health care bill presented by Democrats, along with the claims of receiving nothing. Yet there have been over 800 amendments to health care presented by the GOP and 40 actual BILLS to health care.

How is it that the liberal media is just all out ignoring this? We have the ability to look on the government websites and investigate for ourselves what is being offered in our House and Senate. Yet, most of America seems to be content with just sitting on the couch and listening to the basic evening news tell them what is going on without even a thought of questioning their sources. Well, here is the hard work done for the most part for anyone who does not think that the “other side” is contributing to health care reform; you can find the bills here, click on “Read the RSC Proposals For Health Care Reform” to download the Microsoft Word document.

Millions of Americans do not want government run health care, and for a good reason. Talk to those already on state run health care or families in the military, there is nothing but a long list of complaints. This is what we would have to look forward to with the Democrats plan along with more taxes, more economic burdens, financial collapse, and much more. This includes insuring illegal immigrants, don’t believe it? Obama himself promised while visiting Mexico not long ago that he would push for amnesty, which would make illegals, illegal no more.

integrate the President’s policy agenda concerning health reform across
the Federal Government

I have been watching the media circus surrounding the “You lie!” remarks made by Rep. Joe Wilson during President Obama’s health care speech. The outburst came right after Obama had said that the health care reform would not cover illegal aliens. Then Joe spoke for all of us who know the truth. If only all of our Republican party members had the guts to speak out like him then the liberals would not have been able to push their way into our government so easily. My one and only problem with what Wilson said is that he later apologized. There should be no apologies for calling out a blatant lie. The bill does not include coverage for illegal immigrants, however, it does leave plenty of room for loop holes. In fact, one of the health care bills approved by the House Energy and Commerce Committee called H.R. 3200 leaves more than enough room for coverage of illegal immigrants. As reported by the Washington Examiner, the Congressional Research Service said this about H.R. 3200;

“Under H.R. 3200, a ‘Health Insurance Exchange’ would begin operation in 2013 and would offer private plans alongside a public option…H.R. 3200 does not contain any restrictions on noncitzens—whether legally or illegally present, or in the United States temporarily or permanently—participating in the Exchange.”

So, Mr. Joe Wilson was just calling it like he sees it. And this is not the only “loop hole” that has been swept under the rug either. House Democrats and Obama have been hiding much more as well. We need to support those we have elected in office that actually have the courage to stand alone and speak out against the true lies.

It really amuses me, however, that everyone is making such a fuss over what Rep. Joe Wilson said. Where were these politicians demanding a formal apology (once is more than enough) from Joe when Harry Reid called President Bush a liar and a loser? Or what about the Democrats booing Bush during the 2005 State of the Union address? I never saw ANY of those Democrats apologize formally or informally. I never saw the media jump all over them for their rudeness. And I never heard of the possibility of them facing any sort of punishment what so ever. Like I have said before, the Democrats and liberals can dish it out but they can’t take it.

No real matter though. This really has not hurt Joe in any way. If anything it has dramatically helped him (that has got to be really making the dems boiling angry). Ever since the “You lie” comment he has raised over $700,000. This goes to show that we do not want someone in any office to shyly sit by while someone, even the President, stomps all over the people with their smooth spoken lies to forward their agenda. Obama continually chooses wording when speaking to the media to manipulate the people. He even had the audacity to “fib” again after the health care speech, according to the Boston Globe which stated:

“In his 60 Minutes interview, Obama also acknowledged he has nearly given up working out a deal on health care with all but a few Republicans, the majority of whom he said were interested only in using the issue to restore their party to power.”

As stated in a previous post on my blog, this is an outright lie too. The GOP has given hundreds of amendments and options for health care, all of which have been completely ignored and rejected by the President and the House. In conclusion, I give Rep. Joe Wilson two thumbs way up for standing tall and saying what we are all thinking. No more apologies!

UPDATE 09/16/09:

I don’t know what disgusts me more, the fact that the House spent all day on this ridiculous matter wasting time and taxpayer’s dollars or that Jimmy Carter played the race card. This is not the kind of politician we need in Washington. Those who voted “yes” are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites that manipulate situations to get the support of unsuspecting citizens. You can clearly see the party lines in this vote. Here is an article about it first, and the second shows who voted yes and no.
