And it’s all eloquant and lovely, of course. I hope you’re calling your Blue Dogs in the House, because the healthcare vote is about to do down even as early as Monday. Nancy P. is holding house members captive until the socialist monstrosity is passed. After all, as Rush pointed out today, it’s imperitave that all the photographer’s, writers, artists, etc. be able to explore their passions without having to hold down a real job to pay for their healthcare.
Anyway, they are invoking what is aptly called “The Slaughter Solution” which you can read all about here. But don’t you worry your pretty little heads because it’s all very virtuous and upright and everything. I mean, this is the “most ethical congress” EVAH! Remember?!
PS: Serr8d has a great post on this topic. He makes an interesting point to his rep, Bart Gordon, about the health care vote. It’s the same one I made to John Tanner when I called his office as well. We can’t hold these guys accountable at this point because they are quitting, but what kind of legacy do they want to leave office with?
Also read Michelle Malkin, she’s brilliant.

I’ve been trying to avoid politics since Christmas.
But I’m back to talk to you about Scott Brown.
It’s all about Money. (and maybe good looks) Otherwise, why elect Scott Brown? In fact, fiscally-conservative is the only way he seems to qualify as a republican at all (he does say he’ll vote against national health care). Socially, I would say he’s a moderate to liberal. (his Issues section on his web-site)
He’s pro-choice, and favors states to decide individually on gay marriage, so what gives?
While republicans hold him up as a poster boy for his party, I’m continuing to wonder, as I have since McCain lost the election, where does the republican party stand? Does it care about the issues anymore? or just trying to get another guy who will stamp an R by his name in the senate?
SO with this win, yes, its a Republican in Ted Kennedy’s former seat, but while you all cheer and get so excited, you guys might pause to think what Republicans are agreeing to. What precedent are you setting?
It seems 2010 will be an interesting year, watching the Republican party lay down some of its hardest-fought fights to claim back some power, but I can’t help but wonder at what cost?
I’m just curious.

As the debate of government-run health care drastically heats up, a very important amendment at least to me was defeated on Tuesday. Nelson’s amendment against publically funding abortions was voted against in the Senate. So as the bill stands now, we could be paying to kill babies with our tax dollars.
I went to hear Mike Huckabee speak last Friday at a fundraising event, and while I am not a Huckabee supporter, he made some comments about the worth of a human life that I have been mulling over ever since. To summarize his words: the most important issue intrinsic to our nation is not the war on terror or even the economy; it is the value of a human life. If we do not fight for every human to have his or her chance to pursue life, liberty, and happiness, than we as a nation have nothing left. Everything falls apart. He went on to say that if we continue to teach our children that life is not valuable, that it can easily be disposed of once it becomes an inconvenience, then why would they care for us as we age? What core beliefs about life would they hold dear?
I read a book once as a young girl that forever changed my life. It’s a book called Winterflight by Joseph Bayly, and I think it’s so pertinant to what we are dealing with today. It delves into the horror of a future where human life is easily disposible, where old age and disabilities are cause for eradication. Life is no longer a beautiful and valuable gift.
Now, I don’t want to be a fear monger; but I firmly believe that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness start with our unborn babies. If we as a nation cannot protect them, if we can so easily dispose of a child because he or she would be an inconvenience or a punishment as our President once said, then what is to stop us from a future where the old and the weak become too much of a burden as well? I agree with Gov. Huckabee on this issue. The value of a human life is truly priceless, and those of us that recognize that must never stop fighting for it.

Saturday could more than likely be a “day that will live in infamy” as the House voted on the most expansive take over of government this nation has ever seen, and to get the healthcare monstrosity passed, Nancy Pelosi had to concede abortion in the bill. Of course conservative dems and repubs everywhere have been duped. It’s nothing but smoking mirrors. No worries, raging liberals, your precious abortion amendment will be stripped, I’m sure. For those of you that don’t know, the Stupak Amendment was added into the bill stating that abortions would not be publically funded by PelosiCare. But less than two days later, there is already major talk of taking it out. Consider this from White House senior staffer, Debbie Schulz on MSNBC:
“I am confident that when it comes back from the conference committee that that language won’t be there,” Wasserman Schultz said during an appearance on MSNBC. “And I think we’re all going to be working very hard, particularly the pro-choice members, to make sure that’s the case.”
And Ms. Little Debbie wasn’t the only democrat up in arms about the abortion amendment. Senator “Don’t Call Me Ma’am” Boxer has weighed in, confident as well that the amendment will be stripped from the final bill. Even Obama says the language needs to be changed.
It’s interesting to note that there is no way this healthcare bill would have stood a chance in the House without the Stupak Amendment, and with 64 dems voting for it, there’s definitely a rift there. But what makes me so mad is that this ginormous pile of dung called healthcare reform is now making its way to the Senate with or without any Stupak Amendment. We must keep the pressure up to fight this bill, because the fact that our government would force me, a vehemently pro-life woman to pay for someone to kill their unborn child with my tax dollars is a travesty, and one I won’t stand for, nor should you.

So what exactly is in Botoxicated Nancy’s ginormous 2000 page healthcare bill? Well, for those of you that really want to know, the GOP has the answers. As the democrats are set to vote for the bill this Saturday, and the debate on the government take over reaches new intensity with thousands protesting in Washington today, it’s important to know the facts about what this almost 2 trillion dollar bill means for you and me, and the future generation of Americans to come. For the truth seekers out there, I strongly recommend you check out the 12 Truths About the Pelosi healthcare Plan at http://www.gop.com/.
It’s time people. This is it. We need to let Nancy Pelosi and her minions in Washington know, that we don’t want this healthcare bill shoved down our throat.
