Against the people

This will not stand. No one should be confused about the outcome of Sunday's vote. American people spoke decisively against a big government, high tax, Washington knows best, pro-trial lawyer, centralized and bureaucratic health system. In every poll, the vast majority of Americans opposed this monstrosity.

Speaker Pelosi knew the country was against the bill. She kept her members trapped in Washington and forced a vote on Sunday. The Obama-Pelosi-Reid machine combined the radicalism of Alinsky, the corruption of Springfield and power politics of Chicago. Sunday was a pressured, bought, intimidated vote worthy of Hugo Chavez but unworthy of the United States of America.

It is hard to imagine how much pressure they brought to bear on congressional representative Stupak getting him to accept a cynical, phony clearly illegal and unconstitutional executive order on abortion. The ruthlessness and inhumanity of the Obama-Pelosi-Reid was most clearly on display in their public humiliation of Stupak.

The real principles were articulated by Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings when he said, "There ain't no rules here, we're trying to accomplish something. When the deal goes down we make 'em up as we go along."

America's people will repeal this bill and start over. This year and 2012 will be among the most important elections in American history allowing us to save America from unparalleled corruption, arrogance, cynicism and radical left-wing progressive liberals.
