    Four of them are mine. The health stuff obama is trying to wring our necks with is something i'd be happy to help prevent.

    what specifically am I trying to stop?

    I doubt if I just called up and said "stop obama!" they'd listen.

    Bill has already passed next it will go to reconciliation to clean it up...only thing that might change is if the Republicans are able to get some of their ideas included but I don't see them doing that...just vote no across the board and then run with that as their platform.

    Sadly true.

    Even though the Dems still won't say the "R" word...

    There's a reason why ALL the Republicans are against a much needed healthcare reform... and it's not because they're looking out for their constituents best interest.
    No. 1 in cost.
    No. 37 in quality.

    The poorest states have the worst healthcare and yet they are highest in opposition to any reformation? Which proves old Abe's quote "you can fool some of the people all of the time". People on Medicare out protesting against "government run" healthcare proves the quote from HL Mencken "No one in this world has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby."

    We'll see. In present form, Congresscritters at-risk of losing their seat may not vote UP in the Up or Down vote.

    Didn't Clinton pull similar BS 16 years ago? I'm trying to remember. I do remember him raiding all of the DNC coffers for his re-election campaign. THAT was funny.

    Baron Hilll from Indiana is a lost cause. I have emailed/called him time and time again. He is 100% for this bill. He held two town hall meetings about this and at both was met with extremely heavy oposistion. At one he even stated that "your not gonna tell me how to run my office". I guess he forgot that he is actually working for us.

    Also on reconcilliation, Obama was against this a few years ago.

    This bill is horrible, and along with cap and trade will be the downfall of America.

    I have contacted my elected officials many times for many issues. It seems that all their actions are based on their re-election chances, and do not necessarily reflect the wishes of their constituents. I keep hammering none the less.

    Obama continues to ignore the wishes of the majority of Americans. If he cannot pass HCR with majorities in both the House and Senate, then he should take that as a hint that we, as a whole, do not want Obamacare. Now he wants to use reconciliation to pass HCR where he only needs 51 votes in the Senate. Reconciliation is supposed to be used only to reconcile budget issues, and not enact major policy changes. He should not be allowed to do this against our wishes. He is scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    If they do not listen to the telephone calls, letter, e-mails then make them listen at the polls. VOTE THEM OUT.

    I agree completely that we should vote them out, but I am afraid that it will be too late by that time. If he can use reconciliation on Obamacare, then why not on cap and trade? they have more than enough time to get both of these through before any elections will take place. It is scary.

    I think we will have to vote them out of office and then recall this bill to put it in the trash basket.

    This assumes those democrats haven't arranged to shift unwanted phone calls to a dead end, much akin to what Ms. Landreau of LA was suspected of doing and the guy from Brietbart got caught checking into.

    Much like their leadership, those democrats listed are more interested in ruling us, not governing us.

    If Obamacare passes using reconciliation, all the while the American people are against it, then everyone should have a pitchfork in hand. Obamacare passing in this manner, is a collective slap in the face on the American public.

    I totally agree with you about Hill. He's a liberal and a complete POS. I was at his first Town Hall in southern IN and saw first hand his arrogance and willingness to ignore his constituency. His 'Blue Dog' label is just a marketing ploy to sell himself to gullible voters. He doesn't have a conservative vein in his whole body.... Even though, I've been calling his office non-stop and I don't intend on quitting now.

    ALL Republicans are not against health care reform. They are against the ill conceived, costly, stupid crap that oboma and his fellow Democratic idiots keep trying to shove down the American's throats, so the POS in the White House can say he got the "health care reform" that he promised. (The ONLY promise that he seems interested in keeping)

    (FYI I am not a Republican. There's a lot of Republican politicians that should be out of work to.)

    Vote for WHO? More RINOS like McCain?

    The Republican party has been a disgrace themselves. Just like the Democrat party the Republican party has allowed the "moderate left" to take over the party. They had better QUICKLY throw out the RINOS and get back to their conservative base or there WILL BE a conservative third party. (Yeah I know about the Libertarians with their legal dope and open boarders and jokes for candidates. They just can't be taken seriously as a third party)




    How about that. In one post I think I have managed to irritate about everyone in the three parties.:)

    1st of all, Republicans are not against health care, they are, however, united against 0bama's 'My way or the highway' care bill. Derived behind democrat closed-door meetings, where the Republicans were locked out. If the current bill was so good, there wouldn't be an arguement about bi-partisan support. He thinks the can take the same sucky bill, spruce it up with ideas from the republicans and present the same crap as new and improved.

    Second, don't use rankings from the World Health Organization to try an make a point about US health care. I'd hardly believe anything they have to say about the US.

    Expensive? You get what you pay for. You are more likely to survive the treatment in the US.

    As for the US being 37th in quality? What was Canada's ranking in quality? There must be some reason more than one PM came to the US for medical treatment. Why, if US healthcare is so much in the WHO toilet, do people travel here from around the world, to seek treatment?

    Well it has already passed in the Senate and that is what would be used by the House for reconciliation...so in actuality they wouldn't be enacting major policy changes through reconciliation they would just be reconciling any budget issues with the already passed senate bill.
