There was very little notice for most of America in regards to the “Emergency House Call on Congress”. With the protest being organized only about one week before the event was to occur, the turn out was impressive. At least 10,000 or more people descended on the nations capitol to let Congress know that the current health care bill presented by democrats is not what Americans want. They chanted phrases like, “Hands off our health care,” and “Kill the bill.”

It was a peaceful demonstration that was lead by Michele Bachmann and Pete Hoekstr. The group was there with urgency with voting possible as early as Saturday and since the health care legislation presented will not only cost the nation upwards of $1.1 trillion dollars, but will also lead to a decline in the quality of care that is received in our country. It will empower the government with authority they are not meant to have over our lives; it will take away freedom and consumer choice.

ocare2If you have been looking for another opportunity to show the Obama administration that you are not going to let your freedoms go laying down then here’s your chance! There is going to be a march on Washington November 05, 2009 to stop Obamacare from be shoved down America’s throat. Join GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann on the steps of the Capitol at 12:00pm and help put a halt to passing socialized medicine.

And since you are probably in desperate need of another boring over sized pile of papers to read here is the 1900 page health care bill from Pelosi herself. I don’t recommend printing it out though, it’s not worth the paper. http://health.burgess.house.gov/UploadedFiles/House_HCR_bill.pdf

Obama’s remarks in his speech on health care included saying that not only the GOP have not provided any solutions to help, but that his “door is always open”. But the fact is that Republicans have provided 35 alternative proposals to the health care reform being offered by Democrats. And the President has not had his “door” open to the GOP at all. He has not met with House Republicans since April and have ignored requests to do so since. In addition, as reported by Fox News, Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele stated, “The thing that’s killing me is that those very members on the Republican side have over the course of the last five months offered some 800 amendments and individual pieces of legislation to the — to the president and to (House Speaker) Nancy (Pelosi) and Harry Reid, to say, ‘Hey, this is our contribution.’ Every last piece has been rejected.” So, how can there be any bipartisan agreements, any ability to move forward, when the democratic majority keeps slamming the door in the face of the other House members? How can President Obama know the will of the people and be open to alternatives if he will not give presence to anyone outside of his own party? It won’t happen until the President turns his smooth spoken words into actual actions.

It is my personal opinion along with many others that the President along with the other Democrats do not really want the Republicans to be any part of this health care bill unless it is on their terms. The reason for having the Republicans as part of this bill is so that when it falls flat that they can point the fingers at the GOP and say that they were part of it too. As has been seen in the past when Obama was confronted with the problems surrounding the Stimulus Package; he tried to get around the responsibility by referring that he was not the first and that he was just following his predecessor’s lead. The Democrats have filibuster proof power in the Senate and a majority in the House along with the President, so they really don’t need the Republicans. I hope the Republican’s stand firm, being united, and not partake in any government run health care.

If you read my previous post from early this morning regarding the Democrats using Ted Kennedy’s death to push the reform bill, I said it would be no later than tomorrow. Well, I was wrong. Nancy Pelosi has already said, “Ted Kennedy’s dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made real this year because of his leadership and his inspiration.” I knew it would happen, they can’t just mourn for a day, it is always about the political agenda.

This opinion is based on the following article:
