Having Control and Out of Control
Liberals gag over health deal By GLENN THRUSH
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spent half of Wednesday finalizing a deal with the Blue Dogs — and the other half quelling a brewing rebellion among progressives who think conservatives have hijacked health care reform.
Liberals, Hispanics and African-American members — Pelosi’s most loyal base of support — are feeling betrayed after House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) reached an agreement with four of seven Blue Dogs on his committee who had been bottling up the bill over concerns about cost.
The compromise, which still must be reconciled with competing House and Senate versions, would significantly weaken the public option favored by liberals by delinking reimbursement rates to Medicare.
As they fight among themselves, we must press our fellow Americans to become informed of what plans they have against us. This really is a plan that is against everything that has made America great. I see so many people gaga over "Free Healthcare" that they have missed the real cost in life and dollars being placed before us.
Here is a link to a bills summery report. There is a lot of variation to the bills but the bulk of them puts government in charge of your health. Most go so far as to deny you any real say. Your life will be decided by a formulary and making it illegal to go outside the system.
For those of you who want to get a clear idea of the sales pitch so you can avoid the con and get to the facts of the bill, here is a link to the sales pitches coming your way.
Now that you are fully prepared to meet this challenge head on, go out and talk it up. Let's get America fired up so we can defeat this hostile takeover of our nation.
