The Founding Fathers created a Republic, but 60 Senators are poised to take it away. With the pending disaster of the passage in the Senate of a bill nationalizing one sixth of the U.S. economy and our entire healthcare system at a cost of over $2.5 trillion, we are faced with a crucial question: are the Republican senators using every means at their disposal to stop this looming, tyrannical abuse of power? Unfortunately, the answer appears to be no.
The Senate, unlike the House of Representatives, has parliamentary rules and procedures that give the minority the ability to stall legislation. In fact, unlike the House, the minority have the ability to virtually paralyze the Senate. Doing so is not something we would want or expect for every bad bill that comes through Congress, but the proposed healthcare legislation is probably the worst piece of legislation ever considered by the United States Congress. It is the most intrusive, most damaging, most costly, most dangerous bill to the economic and personal freedom and liberty of individual Americans that Congress has ever considered. If there is any bill that deserves being stopped by shutting down the Senate, it is this one.
[snip] If the Republicans want the news media to cover what they are doing to educate the American people even further about the atrociousness of this bill they have to create drama on the floor of the Senate."

Thanks and while we are calling the Senators - about the Healthcare scam bill - we must also demand these Senators do whatever is in their power to stop the Barney Frank led House Financial Regulatory Reform Bill - that passed in the House this Friday.
Hear Michele Bachmann’s plea for action to stop this monstrosity in the Senate: (IT IS EVEN WORSE THAN THE HEALTHCARE MONSTROSITY)
Is it HR 4173 H.R.4173 Title: To provide for financial regulatory reform, to protect consumers and investors, to enhance Federal understanding of insurance issues, to regulate the over-the-counter derivatives markets, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Rep Frank, Barney [MA-4] (introduced 12/2/2009) Cosponsors (None)
Related Bills: H.RES.956, H.RES.964, H.R.3818
Wallace didn’t create “drama on the floor of the Senate” - he brought the fight
The girly men that run this country now have no idea what’s coming....
The closer they can delay this monstrocity to the 2010 elections, the better the chance that it won’t get approved.
Btter yet, starve the beast.
My “Senators” are Franken and Klobuchar. Unless some GOP Senator wants to clap them in irons or call them out in a duel, there is little that could stop them.
I can’t fight that battle, but I will do my part where I can.
Something smells, better check Franken’s diaper...
The every Congressional GOP member should show up ARMED to the teeth.
That'd get their attention...
That would be funny...They’d fecal all over themselves...
Kinda puts a smile on your face just thinkin’ about it doesn’t it. :-)
You have no idea...hehehe
