Harsh Reality of Dem Leader Corruption [Update]


The Code Red Rally in Washington D.C. was covered live at the Fox News Channel website. I got to see some of the speeches and watched as people walked towards the Capital building to confront their representatives in Congress, urging them to vote NO on the bill. The rallying cry at the event was KILL THE BILL!

Fox News Channel website - Andreas Tantaros article:Manipulation, Payoffs and Lies -- The Democrats' Endgame On Health Care

Excerpt:






This week will reveal the harsh reality of corruption in the Democratic leadership. All of the Democrat’s lip service on “change you can believe in” (Obama) and “cleaning up the swamp” (Pelosi) will be exposed as hollow and untrue.

Democrats have convinced themselves that it would be far worse to do nothing on health care than listen to the concerns of the public. And they have demonstrated they will stop at nothing to get some form of legislation passed – even using the House Rules Committee to draft a new rule that would make it possible for Speaker Pelosi to pass the bill without an actual vote!

This jaw-dropping abuse of power has appropriately been labeled the “Slaughter Strategy” after Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) the tactic’s chief architect and a close Pelosi ally. It would give members of the Democratic Caucus cover. Why, you ask? Because it would skip the step that would force our lawmakers to place an “aye” vote next to a radioactive, unpopular piece of legislation that they will have to defend until Election Day in the fall.

This type of manipulation of government process might be the most perverse we’ve seen to date.

Update at 8:55 a.m. PT:

Just found the following blog post and it is one of the best!!

Redstate: If you try the Slaughter Rule, you will lose the country. Not in November. In March.

Read the entire post!

I especially liked reading the following portion regarding what consequences are likely to happen (if it passes):






What will happen in March?

Six things I can think of, the first three within days. I couldn’t say what order, because things will move pretty quickly. So I list them how my mind sorts them.

1. The Supreme Court will strike it down within days.
I don’t remember which of the 3 authors I cited said this (or maybe I heard it on the radio), so I don’t know who to cite. But every American has standing here, due to the exceedingly far reach of the Health Care Takeover bill. Somebody will sue. I predict GOP members of Congress will, and it will go straight to the Supreme Court. They will strike down the whole caboodle, and they will do it almost immediately. Probably 6-3, with Breyer and Kennedy voting with the originalists. Their ruling is very likely to include language extremely damning of the behavior of Democrats.

2. Numerous states will declare statutorily under the 10th Amendment that this law will be unenforceable within their borders.
I’m guessing 20 states. The move has been afoot for awhile anyway, and this blatant flouting of the Constitution will trigger the America-loving, freedom-loving instincts into bold (if rash) action. And while they’re at it, they’re going to say the same thing about everything emanating from the EPA.

3. There will be public anti-government outrage so great that it will boil into violence.
I do not condone this; it will be ugly and more than a little scary. Lest I give anybody fresh ideas, I will not expound upon it other than to say it will be directed, not generalized — directed at objects, property, and symbols of government, not at people. Although those who voted for this Slaughter Rule would be wise to perhaps hang around in Washington for awhile.

4. (Even more) new candidates opposing incumbent Democrats will come out of the woodwork.
Many already have, but many good ones have considered, then declined. Many of those will change their minds, even in blue states. And new ones will pop up like dandelions. And a whole bunch of them will win. The leftist partisan national media currently think Republicans might, juuuuuuuust MIGHT, get 40 seats and the House back. Idiots. It was already going to be 80 and 8. But after this stunt, it might be 120 and 14. This is what happens when the entire center turns on a party.

5. State AGs will bring charges against sitting Congressmen for whatever they can plausibly pin on them.
Sedition is the actual crime (IMHO), and that’s a federal charge. But no USA will touch this, since they work for the president. Because members of Congress cannot be recalled, citizens will be thirsting for vengeance. Very loudly. State AG’s will be chomping at the bits to exact SOME form of payback, encouraged (or pushed) by their citizenry. Things like corruption, conspiracy, bribery, racketeering, tax fraud, and so on, will be easy indictments. As the last few months have shown, congressional Democrats have been so thoroughly corrupt for so long, nobody will even have to trump up anything.

6. Republicans will shut down business in Congress until January 5.
Then it will REALLY get fun.

Democrats will lose the country days after they pull the Slaughter Rule. They’ll have their illegal law both flouted and overruled, their members will be subject to investigations and indictments, and not a single item of interest will be signed into law, nor will any appointment be approved, before January 5, when a hundred or more of them leave Washington for good.

Received the following statistical chart via email from the The Dallas, Texas Tea Party Group:





A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.



Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after
diagnosis:
U.S. 65%
England 46%
Canada 42%



Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment
within six months:
U.S. 93%
England 15%
Canada 43%



Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within
six months:
U.S. 90%
England 15%
Canada 43%



Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one
month:
U.S. 77%
England 40%
Canada 43%



Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
U.S. 71
England 14
Canada 18



Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in
"excellent health":
U.S. 12%
England 2%
Canada 6%



I don't know about you, but I don't want "Universal Healthcare" comparable to England or Canada .



Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said, "Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age."



He is "elderly" himself but be sure to remember his health insurance is different from yours as Congress has their own high-end coverage! He will never have to learn to accept "inconveniences"!!!

Yep, that was sure a HUGE rally out there! Must have been hundreds!

How long can the Gang of Thugs stand against such moral outrage?

Christinewjc said...

What you fail to realize GM, is that their were rallies going on all across the country.

I can't believe that your blinding ideology of agreement with progressive liberals makes you willingly accept the obvious unconstitutional corruption going on in WA D.C. in order to ram Obamascam Healthcare down the throats of the American people who don't want it! Where is your integrity? Obviously, out the window!

Ronald Reagan has a message for you:

“Are you willing to spend time studying the issues, making yourself aware, and then conveying that information to family and friends? Will you resist the temptation to get a government handout for your community? Realize that the doctor’s fight against socialized medicine is your fight. We can’t socialize the doctors without socializing the patients.

Recognize that government invasion of public power is eventually an assault upon your own business. If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government, recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he’ll eat you last.”
- Ronald Reagan

Yeah, it's called Medicare (aka socialized medicine). ;)

Hi Christine,
Didn't President Reagan raise taxes more than any president since Roosevelt after the beginning of WWII?
Interestingly enough, he also said in the same speech: "We are faced with the most evil enemy mankind has known in his long climb from the swamp to the stars." It sounds like he believed in evolution...

Kevin,

"Didn't President Reagan raise taxes more than any president since Roosevelt after the beginning of WWII?"

Define your terms: Raised as part of GDP? He definitely caused government revenue to increase, but that's what happens when a lot of people are making a lot of income.

Kevin said...

Hi Gary,
See:
http://www.factcheck.org/treasury_tax_expert_to_bush_clintons_increase.html
Here is the bit about the GDP:
"The study said that inflation-adjusted "constant dollars" is probably only the second -best measure of the size of a tax increase. "The single best measure for most purposes is probably the revenue effect as a percentage of GDP." That's Gross Domestic Product, the way we gauge the size of the economy. Clinton's tax increase isn't the biggest by that "best" measure, either. In the period since 1968, the study said, "the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982 was the biggest increase." That was the tax increase signed by Ronald Reagan, rescinding some of the effects of his huge tax cut passed the year before.

That 1982 tax increase only slightly exceeded Clinton's in inflation-adjusted dollars ($37 billion a year vs.. $32 billion) but it was much bigger in relation to the size of the economy. The '82 increase amounted to 0.8% of GDP (average for the first two years) while Clinton's was 0.5%."

I hope that answers your question.

Kevin,

Thanks for the clarification. I understand where you are coming from now.
