Raising The Deficit And Abortion Funding Are In The HCR

Take away the gimmicks and look at legal and legislative precedent and you have a bill that is a lie.

CBO Confirms That Without Accounting Gimmicks, Obamacare Adds to Deficits

Yes, the Health Care Bill Does Allow Abortion Funding

Buying Health Votes With Water

Two California "Blue Dog" Democrats have gotten early notice that their districts were going to get some of their water back.

Buying Votes With Water
The water spigots are back on, at least temporarily, in California's Central Valley. Turned off to protect a tiny fish, they happen to be in the districts of two congressmen "undecided" on health care reform.

One could chalk it up to good fortune or just good constituent service. But in the middle of a contentious health care debate marked by Cornhusker Kickbacks and Louisiana Purchases, we may be forgiven if we find an announcement by the Department of the Interior regarding California's water supply a tad too coincidental.

On Tuesday, the Department of the Interior announced it was increasing water allocations for the Central Valley of California, a region that depends on these water allocations for local agriculture and jobs. The timing adds to our suspicions.

According to the Interior announcement, "Typically (the Bureau of) Reclamation would release the March allocation update around March 22nd, but moved up the announcement at the urging of Senators (Diane) Feinstein and (Barbara) Boxer, and Congressmen (Jim) Costa and (Dennis) Cardoza."

I'm sure this is all just a coincidence.

Unions Leaning On Zack Space, Space MayVote Against His Constituents To Please Unions

Everybody's favorite thugs are leaning on Zack Space to vote against his constituents. The unions are happy because they have already cut sweet deals in return for their support.

SEIU, UFCW lean on Space

I guess Zack thinks they are more important than his constituents.

Biden Now Says Government Will 'Control The Insurance Companies'

Instead of asking what Obama wants to nationalize next it seems easier to just ask what's left.

40% Tax On Bonus Is Legal Theft By Government

A close friend just called me and was very upset. First she couldn't believe that her bonus, which she worked extremely hard for, was so low. She was upset because the size of the bonus reflected what her boss felt about her work. Then she realized that what had actually happened was that 40% of her bonus flew out the window in taxes. She did the work, but they got the taxes. Fair? Absolutely not.

We have roads that get worse every year. Government services that stink anyway, get worse every year. A postal system that is a major joke. Government bureaucracies that nobody wants or needs nor does it accomplish anything meaningful. In fact, what this tax stealing supports is a bloated ridiculous system of government at the local, county, state and federal level that needs to steal from the hard work of others to survive.

And now they want to take over health care. Good Lord, we have to be crazy to allow any of this.

Who And What Bought Boccieri And Wilson for HCR?

What was their price? What did they get?

John Boccieri is a 'yes' on health care
Rep. John Boccieri (D-Ohio) put his political future on the line Friday by announcing that he will vote for the health care bill.

 The vulnerable first termer from a manufacturing-heavy, conservative-minded, district around Canton said that he's willing to risk losing at the polls to reverse his 'No' vote from November and support a bill he thinks will ultimately help the people of his district.

 "Today I hope and I pray that we can get this job done," he said at a news conference. "Yes, I will be voting yes on this bill."

Wilson to Vote ‘Yes’ on Health Bill
"The bottom line is that we need this reform. Families need this reform. Our economy needs this reform," Wilson said. "If you like your doctor, and you like your insurance, you can keep them. If you need insurance or if you need your insurance to be more affordable, this is the help you've been waiting for. This is a historic vote and I am proud to cast my vote in favor of common sense health care reform that finally benefits the people, not the insurance companies."

If Wilson believes this, well, then he is too stupid to serve in Congress. Plus, Wilson says he is pro-life. BS.

Of Lesser Importance To Obama, Russia Helps Iran Go Nuclear

Remember when Obama was going to make America popular again and work closely with other nations to repair our international image and bring sweet peace to all?

Putin just gave Obama the finger.

Putin vexes US over Iran nuclear power

Vladimir Putin, Russia’s prime minister, promised on Thursday that Moscow would help Iran complete a civil nuclear power station by this summer, drawing criticism from Hillary Clinton, US secretary of state.

His remarks highlighted the continuing differences between the two powers over how to contain Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Mrs Clinton was visiting Moscow on a trip partly designed to increase the pressure on Tehran by showing America’s unity with Russia.

But Mr Putin told a meeting held in Volgodonsk, southern Russia, that work to complete the Bushehr plant on Iran’s Gulf coast would soon be complete. “The first block of the Iranian atomic power station must be launched this summer,” he said.

Will Ohio Dems Kill The Bill Or Kill Their Own Principles?

The Hunt for Health Care Votes: Democrats to Watch


Rep. John Boccieri (Voted no on the House bill): He skipped Mr. Obama's event in Ohio even though he was invited by the White House. Check out this article on a plane flying overhead in Canton with a banner that read "Tell Rep. Boccieri no abortion funding."

Rep. Betty Sutton (Voted yes on the House bill): Wants to see the bill. Mr. Obama's event Monday was in her district.

Rep. Marcy Kaptur (Voted yes on the House bill): Concerns with abortion funding and explaining the bill to constituents so they understand what's in it.

Rep. Steve Driehaus (Voted yes on the House bill): Now considered a likely no. Wants stricter abortion language.

Rep. Zack Space (Voted yes on the House bill): Does not like senate bill and wants to see language.

I have little or no faith in the people on this list. They are ignoring their constituents and their staff members in Washington and in the district are disdainful when they answer the phone, which is seldom.

Democrat Admits Thievery

Yep, says it all.

Obama: Legalize Illegals And HCR

Both are illegal, aliens and HCR, but Obama want to make them both legal. We know that HCR is a power grab which the Democrats hope will give them an electoral majority in the FDR mode. A fait accompli would be for the Demos to make illegal aliens legal citizens and loyal voters clinging to Obama's graven image for years to come.

Obama backs plan to legalize illegals

That Schumer is involved with this scheming scam is normal. That is Schumer's way and while it is not shocking it is disappointing that our little Lindsey Graham is assisting such a liberal power grab in such a grand way. It gives Obama the prized mantle of bi-partisanship.

At least La Raza will enjoy our proposed government health care. Ours couldn't possibly be as bad as Mexico's. Oh, wait, Mexico just might become the other 7 states that Obama referred to. The 57 states of Los Estados Unidos de América.
