By an overwhelming margin America has said no to ObamaCare. But instead of listening to America, a congress full of self-serving lily white democRats appear to use what amounts to stealth affirmative action to humor their token ½ black +½ cracker man-child.(To commit on Obama’s ideology without being called a racist by those too ignorant to debate I must separate his genetic makeup before I can proceed to commit on his content of character.)
Anyone who is not politically inept and not history illiterate can see ObamaCare is unconstitutional, a disaster and socialism. Reid, Pelosi and the democRat Party are like adoptive parents humoring a brat pooping in a sandbox. In other words, little Obama’s pile of sandy poo supersedes The United States Constitution.
It appears the only way to discipline the self-serving naughty little Obama will be by states wasting time and resources blocking his deranged obsession, your vote and the USSC. In the meantime he can go f-himself and the same applies to Reid, Pelosi et al.

Two events that have changed the course of history in the US:
Woodrow Wilson signing the Federal Reserve Act.
Clinton nullifying Glass-Stegal.
The third is about to happen...Obama's 'healthcare' bill.

None benefit the taxpayer!

Contact Congress and say NO!

On Page 425 of Obama's health care bill, the Federal Government will require EVERYONE who is on Social Security to undergo a counseling session every 5 years with the objective being that they will explain to them just how to end their own life earlier. Yes... They are going to push SUICIDE to cut Medicare spending!!! And no, I am NOT KIDDING YOU! So those of you who voted for Obama have now put yourself and your own parents in dire straights... Congratulations!

2. Text of pp. 425-430 (Section 1233) of the actual health care reform bill (House Bill 3200), which, as far as I can tell after wading through several pages of legalese, merely amends Title 18 of the Social Security Act to stipulate that Medicare will pay for -- not mandate -- "advance care planning consultations" between individuals and physicians every five years, during which a spectrum of end-of-life options can be explained and discussed so said individuals can knowledgeably choose their own treatment preferences in advance:

In the gutter.

What nonsense and illusion have Democrats crafted?

But the Dems know what the people need, even if we are opposed to it.

The arrogance of the elitist.
