In case you aren’t aware, the bozos up in D.C. have posted the latest version of “destroy America” bill on the internet.  All 2,309 pages of it.  I’ve been trying to go through it, and actually get a few things done around here at the same time, but let me tell ya, if you thought previous versions were bad, wait till you get a gander at THIS one!  TRILLIONS in spending!  That’s a whole number, with 12 zeroes!

Student loans? Hispanic serving institutions?  I’m sure I’ll be posting things as I come across them, but in the mean time, do a little reading on your own.

    The dumb asses, there is such a thing as the ‘Law of Un-Intended Consequences’!!!!

    If the Democrats break it, they bought it :)

    If Obamacare passes this week, every American will rightly blame every problem they have with American medicine in the future on the Democrats.

    Every inability to get an appointment with a specialist or even a general practitioner. Every increase in insurance rates. Every incomprehensible bill received. Every pharmacist’s refusal to fill a prescription without charge or with the drug called for with the pill actually prescribed by the doctor.
     
     And especially every inability to actually get insurance or treatment.

    Democrats from the president and the House speaker on down have told us over and over again that Obamacare is the salvation of American medicine.
     
     When it turns out not to be, and premiums skyrocket and the supply of doctors dwindles, the ownership of the scheme and the method of its passage — by partisan trickery after clear expressions of voter will in polling and at polls in Massachusetts, Virginia and New Jersey — will embed in every voter.

    “You break it, you bought it” is a phrase familiar to and accepted by most Americans.
     
     Democrats are about to break American health care — which is extraordinary in the cures it delivers and works quite well for hundreds of millions of Americans — and they are doing so for partisan reasons.

    Rank-and-file Democrats in office all across the country have to be asking themselves, why this rush to self-destruct?

     Not only will a “triumph” on Obamacare cost the party its huge majorities in both houses in 2010, it will saddle the party with the legacy of damaging American health care that will define it for generations.

     If enough congressional arms are twisted and the savaging of American medicine proceeds, it has “Democrat” written all over it.
     
     And from that day forward, every tragedy that isn’t averted because a doctor wasn’t there or a medicine hadn’t been developed or a hospital had been obliged to close will be the fault of Democrats who gambled with the lives of Americans even as the country fairly screamed,
     
    “DON’T DO IT!!!”
