America, You Asked For It!

Political News and Commentary from the Right

Democrats to Americans–“We don’t give a damn what you want!”

After a year of ignoring the growing grassroots protest movement that sprung up last year, after crashing in polls across the nation for months, and after stinging election losses in New Jersey, Virginia, and Massachusetts, Democrats undoubtedly understand the message being communicated by a disillusioned but indefatigable electorate. But it has never been more clear they don’t care what We the People want, they have no intention of bending to our will.

“This isn’t the change America wanted!” is the clear message that only those who never watch or read the news don’t understand. The Tea Party, the 9-12 movement, and the overall resurgence of conservatism in the country today would not have metasticized except in opposition to President Barack Obama and the Democrats’ rush to burden the American people with the yoke of Socialism.

But after all the protests, calls and emails to representatives and senators, and even their precipitous drop in polls from coast to coast, Democrats in Washington continue to forge ahead on the path to Obamacare–the plank in Obama’s platform most detested by the American people. The message is clear, and it isn’t going unheard.

The message is being ignored!

Two hundred and thirty four years ago, our forefathers were slaves to their government. They responded with revolution.

The Declaration of Independence enumerates the reasons they chose to abandon their ruler and form their own country, now our own country. Within the preamble to that famous document we find part of the foundation of their decision to revolt is once again suffered by We the People.

…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

*Emphasis added

That a strong majority of the people are opposed to a government takeover of our health care system is undeniable. Obama and his Democrat henchmen in the US House and Senate have tried to put lipstick on their pig several times, but a large majority of Americans still recognize it as a pig and continue to oppose Obamacare.

Everyone thought Democrats had finally learned their lesson last month after they lost the un-losable US Senate seat Ted Kennedy had so long occupied. Obama himself even uttered the words on camera. “The Senate certainly shouldn’t try to jam anything through until Scott Brown is seated. People in Massachusetts spoke. He’s got to be part of that process,” said the President following the historic GOP victory in Massachusetts.

Most considered the House and Senate bills dead at that point. But Obama didn’t mean the Senate shouldn’t try to jam anything through, he meant to wait until Scott Brown was seated AND THEN jam something through!

Now it appears they’re ready to do just that. Harry Reid (D-NV) said yesterday the Senate will force a bill through within 60 days, in spite of overwhelming opposition by the American people.

Through a process known as reconciliation, designed to be used only for budget bills, the Senate needs only 51 votes and steer clear of a filibuster. Republicans are crying foul because the 2000 + page bill isn’t a budget bill and doesn’t qualify for that process. In a letter to Obama this month, House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA)told the President “`Bipartisanship’ is not writing proposals of your own behind closed doors, then unveiling them and demanding Republican support.”

The President’s calls for, and promises of bipartisanship were nothing but a sham. Designed to bolster his crashing approval ratings and possibly stem the flow of Democrats’ political bleeding across the country, he met with Republicans last month and called for a Health Care Summit with Republicans that will take place on Thursday. But even some Democrats admit it’s all for show.

Buried way down deep in a New York Times article“There’s hope for a breakthrough here, but the odds of that are not very good,” said a top Democratic aide who has worked for years on health care. “This is a media event.” In the same article, some Democrats expressed doubt the Senate can get even 51 votes to pass the bill in reconciliation. But they also expressed the opinion that Obama may be able to sway enough to cross the hurdle.

Democrats have no intention of compromising, and their leaders in Congress and the White House have no intention of “deriving their powers by the consent of the governed.” Instead they exercise their power in spite of the will of the governed.

If they pass this bill, after all that has transpired these last few months, they will be saying to the American people “We don’t give a damn what you want!”
