Does anyone have a problem with this,Vote them all out

Obama & Senate Christmas Present to We-the-People: Enslavement

With the phony Senator Ben Nelson’s (D-NE) vote now secured, the Senate and its tyrannical leader Barack Hussein Obama can finally move forward swiftly in its application of forced bondage upon the American people. Nelson was a pretender to pro-life and anti-abortion measures and held back his “yes” vote on the not-even-completely-written Senate version of ObamaCare until he was also offered--as were other Senators--a huge bribe (with monies from American taxpayers) to secure his being on board with the rest of the Senate’s corrupt members. Nelson’s bribe was that the federal government will--into perpetuity--cover any and all Medicaid expansion costs for the state of Nebraska. The other forty-nine states will be forced to pick up Nebraska’s portion of the bill.

If our Republican senators in Congress were more reasonable, at least some of them would support health care reform and work with the Democrats. It is because every last one of them opposes health care reform that Democrats have to yield to blackmail within their ranks from senators from Nebraska and Louisiana and put “bad stuff” into their bill. The Democrats would not have to do that if they could count on a few reasonable senators on the Republican side.

The hypocrisy of our Republican senators never ceases to amaze me. Look at our own Georgia Senator Isakson, for instance. The Democrats went along with his proposal to have the federal government give $6,500 to just about anyone who buys a house before next April. Hey, the man ran Northside Realty before he went to Congress and he is through and through a real estate agent. Yet the Republicans complain about the huge deficit the country is running and blame Obama for all of it. Won’t this giveaway contribute to the deficit?

Look at how our two Republican senators from Georgia also supported building more F-18 fighter airplanes in Marietta, while the Pentagon said it didn’t need them and didn’t want them.

Then the Republicans come out and try to convince us, the people, that they are against waste and increasing deficits.

Some of us have eyes, and brains, and can readily put two plus two together. The Republicans have no credibility when they do things like this.

Many persons who are 'moderate' are not blind. The proof will be in the pudding (so to say) when we begin to see health reform in action. What the Budget Committee reported denies the claims of the Republicans that this bill will add to the deficit. What will add to the deficit is an escalation of war in the Middle East. Have we forgotten that we have been a war-based economy for years? I hope that there are very few 'blind' Americans today - and that everyone is paying attention to their local and statewide representatives. We'll see what happens to small business; the unemployed; those who in the past who had no health insurance. If improvement is not apparent - everyone is in trouble.

You wouldn't be IMPLYING that our republican senators are helping the real estate industry and the defense industry would you?
Thjey wouldn't do that.
I think the airplane they wanted and that the defense department doesn't is the F-22. An F-35, a much better craft is ready to build and is what they want.
We can give the extra F-22s to Saudi Arabia (the ones we can't man or maintain that our senators want built anyway--- for jobs. Might as well repave streets that don't need paving (oh, we do that too).
Ask any Marietta conservative voting worker if he wants more unwanted F-22 planes? Of course he does. Hypocrisy.

Isakson asked for a $15,000 tax credit for anyone who bought a house. Anyone in the building or real estate business knows this one thing would have cut unemployment and shortened the recession by a year. Reason they know this is from past recessions - always ending with a housing resurgence - artificially stimulated or not.

A tax credit does not cost money. The $15,000 libs will say is lost is first of all not that much because most taxpayers can't take the full amount even over 2 years because they don't owe that much in taxes, but even setting that aside, one house sale (a resale) creates or keeps over 10 jobs and a newly constructed home sale definitely creates 100 jobs.

Any fool can understand the 100 jobs but the 10 jobs are harder to calculate. Here's how. A resale involves a real estate agent (or 2), a mortgage broker, an underwriter, a home inspector, a termite inspector, a closing attorney, a title company and all the support staff that many of these people have. Add in moving companies, painters, housecleaners, home improvement stores, furniture stores, etc. you can see how a portion of hundreds of jobs who have part-time involvement with one sale can add up to the equivalent of 10 jobs.

Doing OK as long as it is tax money supporting them! Hypocrisy.

mapleleaf, I have never read such idiotic, mindless diatribe in all of my life.

Your are actually saying that the Republicans are FORCING the libs to vote for this idiotic "legislation"?

Get a grip, dude (or dudette, whatever you are) 61% of Americans don't want the health care bill to pass. The Obama administration and the libs in congress don't care and are not listening.

LIBERALISM: The triumph of mindless, wishful thinking over logic, reason, and experience.

I think that is 61% of Fayette County that don't want any insurance. The airlines and government insurance will pay theirs.

I do think Fulton County wants it 85%! NYC, Phil., D. C., Birmingham, Montgomery, LA, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miss., but not Arizona or North Dakota.
