Harry Reid – Voluntary Taxes – Reconcilled Bill

Ever need more proof that Harry Reid is nuts?

Do people actually believe this bull coming out of his mouth?  Tell me do you?  Great interview by Jan Helfeld.

Now I just saw on Fox News that they have enough votes to pass the healthcare legislation.

They are going to debate the reconcilliation.  I demand 72 hours to review their damn reconciliation!

I hope you demand it too!

SPEAK OUT!

Begich’s Reply – The best Deem of ALL! MUST READ!

Yet another testament how the elected are NOT listening to their constituents.

Wonder what Obama and his ilk promised him?  Either he got a sweet back room deal or he is absolutely brainwashed by his party’s rhetoric.  Either way, he has no spine and is willing to sell out Alaskans and Alaskan Constitutional Rights to the Obama movement to socialist America.


March 19, 2010

Dear Mrs. Sowers:

Thank you for contacting me regarding health care reform. I appreciate hearing Alaskans opinions, both pro and con, on this important issue.

As of this letter, the Senate reform bill awaits final action in the House. It is my hope Congress will incorporate the best ideas, no matter where they come from, and move forward soon with a comprehensive bill. I have already shared my thoughts on what Alaska needs with Senate leadership.

We must act. With reform delayed Alaskans are contacting me about health insurance premiums rising even more drastically. For example, the Anchorage property management company is seeing a 64 percent jump for family insurance policies this year. The Juneau nursing home is paying a 27 percent hike for 2010; when they shopped around the only other quote was for a 37 percent increase. Or the self-employed Alaska couple who couldn’t afford a 60 percent premium increase and instead raised their deductibles so high all they have now is a plan to cover only medical catastrophes.

The Senate reform bill I voted for will reduce the federal budget deficit. It will end the status quo of ballooning insurance and medical costs, patients denied coverage and families in financial ruin because of illness. Even healthy, insured Alaskans are being hit by a hidden tax charging them for medical costs incurred by those not covered.

The economy is stymied by these increases. Families have less disposable income. The majority of recently surveyed Anchorage businesses listed soaring health insurance costs as the number one barrier to growth.

My principles for reform are clear – providing Alaskans the security of:

o No discrimination for pre-existing conditions,
o No exorbitant out-of-pocket expenses, deductibles or co-pays,
o No cost-sharing for preventative care,
o No dropping of coverage for the sick or seriously ill,
o No gender discrimination,
o No lifetime caps on how much care insurance companies will cover,
o Children eligible for family coverage until they turn 26.

The Senate-passed bill also reduces the deficit. Because the government is a major health provider, delivering care more efficiently significantly reduces outlays in years to come. The non-partisan budget office says the measure cuts federal spending by more than $100 billion over the next decade and up to $1 trillion in the second.

The Senate bill includes several of my amendments: a panel to improve federal health care in Alaska, increased loan forgiveness for thousands of new primary care providers and added funding for community hospitals. I also helped author a well-received cost-containment amendment that cuts prices for consumers, increases value and innovation in the health care system and saves hundreds of millions of dollars.

No one who supports reform is trying to win a popularity contest. I’m doing it because I firmly believe reform will help relieve the burden on hard-working families and businesses while reducing deficit spending.

Many components of the Senate bill are exactly what I talked about and supported during my campaign, and I will continue to work hard to make sure we finish the job. The stakes are too high not to move forward.

Thank you again for contacting me about health insurance reform. As the 111th Congress moves forward, please continue to share your thoughts.

Sincerely,
Mark Begich
U.S. Senator

Begich attached two files to the email, one on on Health Reform Facts and an article from the LA Times.

Do I care? Do I believe the bull he is trying to pawn off on me? NO!

Why are insurance premiums so high? How about allowing people to buy insurance across state lines? How about providing some tort reform so medical providers don’t have to pay huge medical malpractice insurance and order tests they don’t feel are necessary? Why doesn’t he mention in here, that this horrid piece of legislation changes not only healthcare, the largest government takeover of all? But now they have rolled into it student loans, making the government the only source of student loans?

How many IRS agents do they figure in?

Well an article I found states this:

The IRS, the agency responsible for enforcing tax laws, will have to hire a small army of new employees to monitor the health insurance compliance of roughly 300 million Americans and collect the penalties imposed on those who don’t meet the health care bill’s individual mandate to carry health insurance. Some estimates put the number of new tax collectors at more than 16,000.

This is unreal.

Read on if you wish.

How will the IRS be involved in your healthcare?  What new power will they have if we let them continue on this power play of force?

The sickening thing is that the people that really give two %#@% about what is going on are not the kind of people to incite revolution and force the hand of the government to stop this nonsense.  But maybe we should be… at this point.  If half the people in this country  knew what they were in for.

Is their plan to “deem it passed” constitutional?  I think, not.  Read on from Edwin Meese III, former US Attorney General.

Quite possibly the BEST thing I have read today comes from Deroy Murdock and his article on National Review, here are the last two paragraphs!  PLEASE SHARE THIS ARTICLE WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW!  SHARE IT ON FACEBOOK, MYSPACE, YOUR BLOG, YOUR EMAIL!  I deem it!  I LOVE IT!

Meanwhile, House leaders grow increasingly shady as they pound this legislative gruel down the gullets of the gagging American people. Team Pelosi may attempt to pass the Senate bill through a “self-executing rule,” whereby House members would approve a reconciliation proposal, whereupon Obamacare will be “deemed to have passed” the House without a pesky yea-or-nay vote. Pelosi praised this subterfuge: “I like it because people don’t have to vote on the Senate bill.”

If Obama, Pelosi, and other Democrats pull this scam, Americans should deny them the cash they crave. Come April 15, citizens should tell Washington that they “deemed to pay” their taxes, and then pocket their earnings.

Is that not just the most beautiful thing?  I deem my taxes have been paid…

Mr. Begich…

My email today to Mark Begich, the senator from Alaska.  I’ll call too.

Mr. Begich,

I am writing as your constituent to demand that you vote no to the health care legislation.

Your vote will dramatically affect your political career in Alaska.  I will personally contribute some of my income to any party running against you or the Democratic party.  I will devote my time to any such campaign against you or the democratic party as well.  I had a great time making phone calls for Scott Brown.

I, like so many people, have had enough  force feeding of the health care issue.  I agree health care is a concern.  It falls under individual states to address issues not outlined in the constitution , not the federal government.

I demand that before you vote on any piece of health care legislation you READ it out loud to your constituents in Alaska, via television and radio.  Heck we have streaming audio as we are a very connected state.  You explain in detail how you agree with each piece of the legislation.  Sounds like a lot of work?  Well, that’s your job.

Care to meet and discuss it with me?

Marcy Sowers

I am fed up…

Endorsed by Saul?

Why do so many people embrace “The end justifies the means” philosophy in politics and life?  Bending the rules or circumventing a well delineated process, to suit your purpose is an ethical violation; Believing you are right does not give you the excuse to break the law, unless you are certain elected officials & then Machiavelli (or Saul Alinsky) reigns supreme in your philosophy & you use it justify what you do.  Endorsed by Saul… Feel better now?  Still doesn’t make it right nor tolerable.

The Obama administration and the Democratic party have been transparent in their deception, their “great community organizer” is following true to form and I am so pleased to see so many American people angry at their manipulations.  They might have a majority, despite lack of popular majority.  They don’t even have the courtesy to use vaseline with their cornhusker kickbacks.  Smile, “it’s good for you and what you need.”  It is duly noted and people are pissed.

I don’t agree with what is going on in this country, and a LOT of people I talk to don’t either.  Including Idaho… Congratulations Idaho!  I applaud you and any other state that has the balls to stand up to this administration and defend the United States Constitution.

I think Rush or Glenn Beck and any other person who has the means to organize the American people in defending the constitution should do so.

You say you’ll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it’s the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right
all right, all right
all right, all right, all right
all right, all right, all right

What do you think?

Hope and Change–Who would have thought?

Hello everyone…

I have been giving some thought to a few things.

Number ONE–During Obama’s campaign he promised many things.  Many things that he has not followed through with or that were downright lies.

Bipartisan my #%@!!!!

What I am seeing that is more amazing than anything.  People who don’t even agree, agree on one thing.  Things in Washington D.C. have to change.

I got an email from someone, who talked about joining a tea party protest.  She is 50 years old and realized that she enjoyed standing up for something she believed in and was willing to protest for.

Now I am a self-avowed conservative, non-partisan person.  I have gone from being disillusioned that ordinary people cannot make a difference, to realizing that the only thing that is going to save our country.  Ordinary people making a difference.   I have hope that ordinary people can change the direction of our country.

There is still a measure of “real” America out there, much larger than was originally thought.  The leftist agenda can scream “Right Wing Radicals” all they want.   How RADICAL is it when so many want the same thing?  You could call their socialist agenda radical.

It all goes back to one thing-a mission.

Our mission, is the pursuit of happiness.  Our instruction manual is the Constitution.  When actions are not in line with the mission, it is evident because things just don’t work right.  Things are horribly wrong in America, but not to the point that we will not stand up for it.  If things are tough, we can come through it–provided we are fighting for the America we have in the past.  The United States of America has stumbled but it is not laying down.  Our leaders may have forgotten ethics, the “mission” we believe in but be rest assured, we have not!  The Constitution states we are guaranteed the “pursuit of happiness,” it does not state we are guaranteed happiness.  It is not the right of every American to have everything taken care of for them.  However, we do have the right to pursue happiness, and the current agenda in Washington, D.C. is seriously hampering that right.  Are you tired of it yet?  Has the smoke cleared, a few mirrors broken?

I have a feeling that many more will come together in honor of that true mission–abiding by the manual.

Are you ready for change you can be PART of?  Change you can be proud to say you stood up for?

Until Next Time!

Silence Betokens Consent – Speak up America

The current political pressure on both sides of our two-parties is immense.  I read some articles this morning that really highlighted the current tenuous hold that the Dems have in Massachusetts.

Coakley made some very dumb comments over this past week.  From my visits to Mass, I recall the strong presence of the Irish Catholic working people.  I honestly hope that every Catholic in Massachusetts (and anyone else)  gets out and votes against this ridiculous woman!  Courtesy of the Washington Times:

Ken Pittman: Right, if you are a Catholic, and believe what the Pope teaches that any form of birth control is a sin. ah you don’t want to do that.

Martha Coakley: No we have a separation of church and state Ken, lets be clear.

Ken Pittman: In the emergency room you still have your religious freedom.

Martha Coakley: (……uh, eh…um..) The law says that people are allowed to have that. You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.

Wow, I think not only is her comment doing a disservice to the many Catholic medical professionals, but I think that she is putting the cart before the horse.

What I mean by that is that, she states : “No we have a separation of church and state Ken, lets be clear.” Now this would be relevant if… IF… the STATE was running the emergency rooms, now wouldn’t it?

Wow.. .the “law says you are allowed to have that.”  Why is it that terrorist in this country have more honor for their religious beliefs, by the Leftists, than do hard working American Catholics saving lives in the Emergency Room?  How screwed up is that?

If the Left has any sense of self-preservation they will duly take note of the reaction of the American people.  I hear about these Right Wing Radicals, people who are so radical, as to oppose “King Barack Hussein Obama’s” political agenda?  We still, at least far as I know, have the right to freedom of speech and the freedom of choice when it comes to political parties.  Who knows, what they are cooking up behind closed doors, that freedom may well be at jeopardy too.

Create a crisis, force your solution, misinform the masses–the American people are getting very tired of it.

I am more than happy to be called a Right Wing Radical.  Who am I?  Someone flinging tea bags at Dems?  No…  I am a tax-paying, mother of 3.  Someone who works in social services for the majority of my life.  You’d think I would be singing Kumbaya and hollering for terrorist rights, but wait… Kumbaya has the word “Lord” in it.  That is just not PC.  Cripes…

I think the American people who are sick of the current political pressure from the Democratic Party need to have a concerted effort Monday–on Martin Luther King Day.  I am going to encourage every single person who is tired of the rhetoric, the force feeding, the lack of transparency, the inexorable push to the Left, the incompetence of the politicians as it pertains to OUR military, Barack’s inept international politics, shaking hands with mass murderers, closing of Gitmo and putting our citizens at more risk, giving a terrorist more rights than an average citizen, increased taxes and their false stimulus, bribery with no negative consequences (at least until election day), the idea of developing a national police, 2800 page legislation they don’t have the balls to read outloud and analyze in front of the American people.

What do we do?  Well I suggest that every American who opposes the list above (which is really far from complete) honors the Great Martin Luther King Jr., who fought for equality for ALL, and proved that civil disobedience was an effective method for bringing about change.

Gather peacefully at your local government offices, municipal city halls, state legislatures, and if you can, our nation’s capital at 6:01 pm EST and stay there until 7:05 pm EST.  Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot at 6:01 and was pronounced dead at 7:05.

Bring a tea bag and a candle!  Hold them both high and demand that the honor of our country be protected.  Show that Martin Luther King did not bring about change only to have the rights stripped from us by the Leftist agenda.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

-Martin Luther King Jr.

Email to Bob Nelson

I took a few minutes to write Bob Nelson.  I urge everyone to do the same!

Senator Nelson,

I started this letter a few times, Dear did not seem appropriate, neither did Mr.  A term of endearment or a sign of respect hardly seems to be appropriate for you.

You sold out to the party and the were bought by Harry Reid and Democratic Party to pass a piece of legislation that could not pass on it’s own merit.  You are a disgrace to politicians, to your constituents and America in general.

Not only will I provide monetary support to any person who opposes you in the next election but I will ensure that any Republican or Independent has my support for the rest of my natural life based on how I have seen the Democratic party conduct itself.

I have never been more disgusted with a piece of legislation, along with many other Americans.  I sit in disbelief that despite our urging you in particular sold your soul and political career for socialism in the United States.

It’s people like you that give politics a bad name.  You have done a huge disservice to your country and although your constituents won’t have to pay (as much) as the rest of us, they will indeed pay in the long for your force feeding foul legislation.  YOU put your senatorial stamp on it.  I know don’t care or you would voted otherwise.  The end justifies the means right?  You decide the greater good, but YOU are exempt from the ramifications of your decision.

Let’s hope the House has more spine than you, although the open bribery and disgusting conduct has been already illuminated there by people like Nancy Pelosi.  You are puppets in this game, how long before you realize that your puppeteer led you in the wrong direction?  Or maybe you do already and of course are following along with whoever pulls your strings or lines your pocket?

Disgusted United States Citizen,

Marcy Sowers
