Arrogance, Corruption And Stupidity

United States Senator – and physician – Tom Coburn:

This vote is indeed historic. This Congress will be remembered for its arrogance, corruption and stupidity. In the year of 2009, a Congress ignored the coming economic storm and impending bankruptcy of our entitlement programs and embarked on an ideological crusade to bring our nation as close to single-payer, government-run health care as possible. If this bill becomes law, future generations will rue this day and I will do everything in my power to work toward its repeal. This bill will ration care, cut Medicare, increase premiums, fund abortion and bury our children in debt.

This process was not compromise. This process was corruption. This bill passed because votes were bought and sold using the issue of abortion as a bargaining chip. The abortion provision alone makes this bill the most arrogant piece of legislation I have seen in Congress. Only the most condescending politician can believe it is appropriate to force Americans to pay for other people’s abortions and to coerce medical professional to take the lives of unborn children.

Everything about this health care “reform” is a lie. Top to bottom, not one bit of it is true. It does not – and cannot, as it is structured – control costs. It will not bring down the cost of insurance, instead it will cause those costs to increase. It will not insure every American. It will not increase access to care, rather it will bring rationing. It is not deficit neutral, taxes will rise sharply, bureaucrats will control you and yours. You will be indentured to insurance companies, forced to pay them for what they will be allowed to “give” you in benefits.

There is literally nothing in this bill worth having for the people of the United States.

Turn every member of Congress who votes for this out of office. Or try hard to do so. Or your children will be less free than you have been.

    Better yet, get face to face with Congressional Democrats and give them hell. Eyeball to eyeball, nose to nose, let ‘em see and hear the anger of outrage and the emotion of free men in revolt against Socialist usurpers.

    If Democrats refuse to heed the voices of the American people now, they’ll have their houses pulled down around their ears in 2010.

    I would be sure to show them cold rage – not hot. Do not appear threatening – they will merely use that as an excuse to dismiss you and your concerns. Make sure they know that you will actively work for and financially support efforts to unseat them.

    We are now in an uphill fight. There is still a slim chance to stop this, but time is running out. Get serious, people. Talk to your friends, talk to your relatives. Get them to call. Be polite, be civil – and be completely unyielding. Make it clear that a yes vote on the final bill automatically sends your support to the opposition. In 2010 and forever after.

    Mean it.
