On A Clear Day

The Only Thing You Need To Read Today:

Abuse of Power
'An undemocratic disservice to our people and to the Senate's institutional role.'

A string of electoral defeats and the great unpopularity of ObamaCare can't stop Democrats from their self-appointed rendezvous with liberal destiny—ramming a bill through Congress on a narrow partisan vote. What we are about to witness is an extraordinary abuse of traditional Senate rules to pass a bill merely because they think it's good for the rest of us, and because they fear their chance to build a European welfare state may never come again.

The vehicle is "reconciliation," a parliamentary process that fast-tracks budget measures and was created in 1974 as a deficit-reduction tool. Limited to 20 hours of debate, reconciliation bills need a mere 50 votes in the Senate, with the Vice President as tie-breaker, thus circumventing the filibuster. Both Democrats and Republicans have frequently used reconciliation on budget bills, so Democrats are now claiming that using it to pass ObamaCare is no big deal.

Full Story Here.

p.s. The USA as we know it is going to change forever if we allow ObamaCare to go unchecked. Every effort must be made to keep it from being passed, especial under the use of "reconciliation." When our nation was founded, our form of government was set up with checks and balances so that a person or persons could not gain enough power to control the country as it happened with the kings England at the time. If "reconciliation" is used to pass ObamaCare today, it will signal the end of the need for "our" government officials to listen to the voice of the people. We will no longer be a represent Democratic Republic but a socialist nation where in the people are no longer free. This tyranny must stop! And if it means marching to DC to take back the country from the minority who threaten to take away the freedom of the must be done. Those reading this must understand that now is the time to cry out and make this nation shake with the sound of our collective voice and say, "Enough is enough! You will not rule over us! We are a free people, one nation under God!" Not under the control of one president and his party.
