ATR Warns Of Job Losses If Martha Coakley Wins Massachusetts U.S. Senate Race

January 19, 2010 by  

ATR warns of job losses if Martha Coakley wins Massachusetts U.S. Senate raceA win by Democrat Martha Coakley in today’s special election to fill the Senate seat left vacated by the death of Ted Kennedy will result in the loss of thousands of jobs in the healthcare industry, according to Americans for Tax Reform.

The organization, which is a non-partisan coalition opposing all tax increases, released an analysis showing the impact of Martha Coakley’s support for the Senate healthcare bill, which contains 18 separate tax increases, including a $2 billion per year (rising to $3 billion in 2017) tax on medical device manufacturers.

The ATR cites a 2007 study by Advamed, a medical device manufacturing trade association, that found that Massachusetts depends on medical device manufacturers for nearly 22,000 jobs. It ranks second in the country behind California, and fourth as a percent of all state jobs, as one in every 150 Massachusetts workers is employed in the medical device manufacturing industry.

"Raising taxes is not free, it will cost jobs," warned ATR President Grover Norquist.

"People need to ask Martha Coakley why she wants to be the deciding vote on a government healthcare and taxes bill which will endanger 22,000 high-paying jobs in Massachusetts," he added.

Facing off against Coakley, who serves as Massachusetts Attorney General, in today’s election is Republican candidate Scott Brown, a state senator.

Polls suggest the election could be anything from a double-digit Coakley cruise to a statistical tie. Republicans last held a U.S. Senate seat in the New England state more than four decades ago, according to Reuters..

A Republican has not won a U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts since 1972.

    Well, today is the day of reckoning. If Coaxley should win, I reckon we will loose more jobs, have greater government interferrence in our lives, be less of a secure nation (Coaxley said there were no terroists in Afghanastan), be blugeoned by higer taxes and kiss our freedoms goodbye. And she will win. SEIU, ACORN and democratic thugs will make sure of it. So much for being born in the land of the free. Free if your a liberal democrat, an Obama A _ _ kisser, a special interest or lobbyist group, a good for nothing gimme gimee non worker, illegal alien, radical islamist, and the rest of the ilk that’s on the Obama bandwagon. God help us, we surely didn’t deserve this.

    • denniso

      First of all. ATR is not ‘non partisan’…a group that opposes all tax increases,no matter the circumstances, has a clear political agenda..arch conservative. Cheny/Bush cut taxes on the wealthy while fighting 2 wars and passing the trillion $ drug plan..how in hell is that supposed to work? The plan is to starve gov’t into incompetence and then convince voters that gov’t is,surprise,incompetent..all designed to get gov’t off the back of who?? the giant corporations.
      So sure,let’s not fix or reform our ridiculously expensive and unfair healthcare system and allow more millions to lose their homes and assets to outrageous med bills and keep millions from going to the dr when they are ill and keep lining the pockets of the fattest of the fat cats,the insurance executives, who are grinning as they drive their $60,000 cars to the bank, as we fools try to stop real reform of one of the most vital necessities in life.

      • DaveH

        So anybody who opposes further tax increases is an arch-conservative?
        Wow, you have it all neatly laid out don’t you?

        It has been political experience that if Congress is allowed to increase taxes they will find new ways to spend the new money. Of course, spending is the real problem, but it is more difficult politically to increase spending when the taxes have been cut.

        Anybody who thinks Government is the answer to high costs is either on the government payroll, or has not done much of any studying on economic factors.

        I have given you two solutions to the high costs of HealthCare Insurance.
        One is to pool your Liberal monies together and start your own Insurance companies or HealthCare Provider companies. That should be easy with your high degree of intelligence. And then you could give away your product like you think they should.
        Here is another:
        http://mises.org/freemarket_detail.aspx?control=279

        Of course, I don’t really expect you to read anything contrary to your own biased opinion, as it might make you feel guilty while feeding at the Government Trough.

        • denniso

          Your lack of any ability to reason or use logic amazes me,once again…

          • Time

            D Dude,

            I think you need to reset your LOGIC button.

            I grew up with a simple mind set, I didn’t think about being a Cop or a Politician, no it was straight forward for me with no agenda.
            I said by the time I am 30 I will be worth a million dollars.

            Well being in a country that has some freedom helps and as it turned out by the time I was 32 I was worth well over a million dollars and paid out that much in tax’s too!
            Let alone SS pay outs, now with that in mind I will never see a single cent of the money paid to SS.

            My tax dollars have gone to absurd causes, I have had zero say in any of it.
            My guess is you are like 90% of the pouplation of the US, you still think there is a “FREE LUNCH” with your name on it.

            Let me be clear, I paid for my Higher level education al five years of it, as in it was out of my pocket.
            I have worked for myself for well over 35 years and during that time spent no less than 12 hours per day 7 days per week, more in line with 16 hour days.
            Yes I have made a lot of money, I also have had 5 vacations in over 30 years, really I worked even during these slight breaks so were they really a break?

            I am Liberal, and I am conservative, lets see I can also write with my left hand, as well my right, have voted for Democrats and Republicans, I still work and more than likly will never be able to stop working, WHY one may ask? POLITICIANS.

            But that aside, Miss Coakely come on dude, for her own political gains she has put people behind bars that were 100% NOT GUILTY. And the part that really screams how bad of a person she is; she knew what she was doing was wrong!

            Now I ask any sane person do you really want someone like that in GOVERNMENT?
            My God we have Barry who has done nothing but suck money from people like ME who worked our ass off so he could have a FREE EDUCATION.

            Folks we really do need change, real change.

            But sadly the mass’s have been so dumb down that they think, up is down, and down is up.

          • denniso

            Time…so you’re a money grubber,so what? And you say you’re a multi millionaire but you can’t retire because of the politicians?? Makes no sense,dude.
            I’ve been self employed for 40 years and have no desire to retire because I like what I do.

          • DaveH

            If he’s a money grubber for working to make his own money, what does that make you, Denniso, for advocating the taking of other peoples’ money?

        • DaveH

          And those Giant Corporations that Denniso rails about seek (and get) protection from both Parties, Democrat and Republican. Maybe even more so from Democrats, because Republicans have traditionally sought fewer regulations so the smaller companies could afford to operate, whereas Democrats are mostly concerned about Unions which typically exist mostly at large Corporations.

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Time / Dave H / and just about everyone else (except Denniso) that has posted comments,

            You are all so right on target! Denniso can’t be a gracious loser…so he’s just sadly….a loser, who loves to agitate and stir the pot…doesn’t really care what the issue is…just that there’s a pot to stir!

            Dennison…..you have some nerve referring to others as “money grubbing”….you thief!

            Fed Up Gal

          • Time

            DennisO,

            My God man your one angry person, I forgive you for your inability to grasp Human drive.
            Its human nature there is positive as well negative.
            Most Government employes seem to have NEGATIVE drive, its a pay check and they work only what is required of them. Now thats a great thing to aspire to. I think NOT.

            I do enjoy my work and thats why I do what I do, so I guess I should forgo making money per your LOGIC. How you twist logic is what is known as PRETZEL LOGIC.

            So on that note not to bang my own drum, but a few facts for you, I not only give money to Charities that I hold dear, I also give of my time to help people.
            One good example is one of our neighbor who lost her job last year, I paid her bills until she got a new job, thats eight months, as well my wife and I take care of her kids I have never asked for anything in return and don’t expect it.
            But by your logic the Government should do what I have done, just how well do you really think that would have worked out? She would have lost her home, and she and her children would be living on the streets.

            I do object to the Government taking from me for people that refuse to work. Thats just WRONG!

            So in conclusion DennisO Your an angy person who hates anyone who has drive to be and do more than be an empty vessel who would sit and wait for someone else to do it.

            Again, you need to reset your LOGIC button.

          • denniso

            I’m still curious Time…if you have all this $$,why can’t you retire?? Evil politicians??

        • Robert

          I thought that knucklehead Denniso was gone for good. I will not even give him the satisfaction of a reply. I just ignore his ignorance. His MO is extreme instigation against anyone who has an opinion.

          • denniso

            Poor Robert…no,i’m not gone. I use ‘extreme instigation’??? Wow, i wonder, have you read any of the actual extreme crap on this site?? It’s full of ‘extreme’.

          • DaveH

            No, Robert, we won’t get off that easy. Denniso, like a teenager starved for attention, enjoys the negative attention. He thinks he’s upsetting us, but I personally like him being around so that fence-straddlers can see what Liberals are all about.

      • http://Don'thaveone Sally

        Denniso, please get your facts right. Chaney/Bush did not just only cut taxes on the wealthy, who by the way pay more taxes than the poor who pay nothing but get back earned income credits and pay no taxes (I know because I worked one season as a tax preparer in 2007 for Liberty Tax Service)but reduced the tax burden on small business across the board. Maximum taxes were 35%. I hope you have checked your tax book that you recently and see what your going to be paying in 2010 as most of the deductions for schooling, capital gains on a sale of a house (there wasn’t any in the Bush Admin) and if the Obummer health care gets passed, small business will cease to exist. Senior citizens (you have to be on Medicare when you reach 65 – government run health care)pay this year 97.50 per month plus a supplemental policy to assist with costs that medicare doesn’t pay, depending on the company you go with, adds another 140$ per month each. And Medicare has gone broke adding 100M each year to the debt – so we want to let Obama now take over all health care. What a joke!!! If that happens, I’m out of here. Only people who will be left are those on the dole that don’t want to work just lay around for handouts – that is called buying votes but if noone is here to pay taxes, guess what – you got it.

        • http://Don'thaveone Sally

          Sorry, I meant 100 Billion.

          • denniso

            Sally…you’re rant is illegible and if we get healthcare reform and you leave the country, good.

    • Richard Pawley

      “GOD HELP US. WE SURELY DIDN’T DESERVE THIS?” I’m afraid we can’t truthfully say that. God has clearly illustrated his love and concern, as well as his laws and his justice in the Bible. Those are the basic principles upon which this great nation was founded, the ACLU notwithstanding. Not church, not religion, but the basic time honored eternal truths that man was made in God’s image and that we have been endowed by God with certain inalienable rights, like “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. Remember, however, that Lucifer was created in God’s image as well until he chose to oppose that and imagine himself to be god. I have actually heard some say that “We don’t need God now that we have the Democratic Party”. Time and time again in the Bible and in history, it is illustrated how those who seek God’s justice, love and mercy will be rewarded and those who reject it, and imagine that they are God, will be punished. Thank God he has not given us what we truly deserve or the “Holier-than-thou we-know-what is best for the public” Progressives would have already taken over and replaced the Constitution just as Wilson and Roosevelt replaced justices with others who would go along with their views. Obama and Pelosi and Reid are not the cause of all this, they are merely the end result of a long chain of people, pawns, and events leading up to the destruction of the United States as we have known it. Obama will be blamed, of course, but why he wants to go down in history as the one who destroyed the United States I do not know. We would have had a better choice in 2008 if we were living righteous lives and following the basic rules of life that God gave us millennia ago. Republicans and Democrats are to much alike, to much in the hands of Wall Street and the owners of the Federal Reserve Bank. To much to go into but just one example: God said don’t sacrifice your infant children to the false god Baal, but we have sacrificed 50,000,000 to the false gods of Hedonism. We call it a woman’s right to choose, but few have seen babies being born and who are cruelly killed as they are being born or who are thrown aside to starve to death in some back room should they actually be born. A person would likely go to jail if they did this to a dog or cat but an unwanted child? Abortion is the major form of birth control in Russia and their population is shrinking. Must we follow them? Without the influx of Hispanics our population would be shrinking as well. If we had left the issue of abortion to the states to decide then the nation as a whole would not have to suffer but those who are anti-life chose to force it through a progressive court and make it a national right. I don’t have the time to go into all the other offenses against God that we Americans are guilty of. We can of course, pray to God to forgive our sins, which he will if we truly mean it, and we can pray and ask Him to work His will on all these things. He can influence, sway, and do more than most can imagine. I have a sister who has been praying that the Republican will win in Massachusetts. I have not done that although I’d surely prefer to see him win just to send a message to Washington where the elitist Congress seems determined to ignore the winds of change and the voice of the people. I have, however, been praying that God would work HIS WILL on today’s election in Massachusetts and everything around it. A hundred complaints or emails will not equal one heart felt pray to God to save our nation while we still have one. Oh, and get ready for some really big inflation in the next couple of years (over 200%). Congress and the FED has already assured that. It’s the ONLY way we can pay off all we owe (to do so with much cheaper dollars).

      • joan

        wonderful letter. you said it all. one things I noticed from my liberal friends is that you cannot hold an opinion without them getting furious like an attack dog. I can disagree with my conservative friends and they don’t get angry but will just try to explain why they feel the way they do.

        • DaveH

          That’s been my experience too. They can’t win the war of words, so they have to stoop to childish manipulation.

  • Raggs

    I surely hope the people in Massachusetts have better sence than voting her in. I still think health care reform is one of the main reasons this country is in the tank… I think once it goes away the economy will pick up again.

  • Robert

    Letter from Grandpa – priceless

    John G. is 63 years old and owns a small business. He’s a life-long Republican and sees his dream of retiring next year has all but evaporated. With the stock market crashing and new taxes coming his way, John assumes now that he will work to his dying day.

    John has a granddaughter. Ashley is a recent college grad. She drives a flashy hybrid car, wears all the latest fashions, and loves to go out to nightclubs and restaurants. Ashley campaigned hard for Barack Obama. After the election she made sure her grandfather (and all other Republican family members) received a big I told-you-so earful on how the world is going to be a much better place now that her party is taking over.

    Having lost both roommates, Ashley recently ran short of cash and cannot pay the rent (again) on her 3 bedroom townhouse. Like she has done many times in the past, she e-mailed her grandfather asking for some financial help.
    Here is his reply:

    Sweetheart,

    I received your request for assistance.

    Ashley, you know I love you dearly and I ‘m sympathetic to your financial plight. Unfortunately, times have changed. With the election of President Obama, your grandmother and I have had to set forth a bold new economic plan of our own… “The Ashley Economic Empowerment Plan.” Let me explain. Your grandmother and I are life-long, wage-earning tax payers. We have lived a comfortable life, as you know, but we have never had the fancier things like European vacations, luxury cars, etc. We have worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon. But the plan has changed. Your president is raising our personal and business taxes significantly. He says it is so he can give our hard earned money to other people. Do you know what this means, Ashley? It means less for us, and we must cut back on many business and personal expenses. You know the wonderful receptionist who worked in my office for more than 23 years? The one who always gave you candy when you came over to visit? I had to let her go last week. I can’t afford to pay her salary and all of the government mandated taxes that go with having employees. Your grandmother will now work 4 days a week to answer phones, take orders and handle the books.. We will be closed on Fridays and will lose even more income to the Wal-Mart.

    I’m also very sorry to report that your cousin Frank will no longer be working summers in the warehouse. I called him at school this morning. He already knows about it and he’s upset because he will have to give up skydiving and his yearly trip to Greenland to survey the polar bears.

    That’s just the business side of things. Some personal economic effects of Obama’s new taxation policies include none other than you. You know very well that over the years your grandmother and I have given you thousands of dollars in cash, tuition assistance, food, housing, clothing, gifts, etc., etc. But by your vote, you have chosen to help others — not at your expense — but at our expense.

    If you need money now sweetheart, I recommend you call 202-456-1111. That is the direct phone number for the White House. You yourself told me how foolish it is to vote Republican. You said Mr. Obama is going to be the People’s President, and is going to help every American live a better life. Based on everything you’ve told me, along with all the promises we heard during the campaign, I’m sure Mr. Obama will be happy to transfer some stimulus money into your bank account. Have him call me for the account number which I memorized years ago.

    Perhaps you can now understand what I’ve been saying all my life: those who vote for a president should consider the impact on the nation as a whole, and not be just concerned with what they can get for themselves. What Obama supporters don’t seem to realize is all of the money he is redistributing to illegal aliens and non-taxpaying Americans (the so-called “less fortunate”) comes from tax-paying families.

    Remember how you told me, “Only the richest of the rich will be affected”? Well guess what, honey? Because we own a business, your grandmother and I are now considered to be the richest of the rich. On paper, it might look that way, but in the real world, we are far from it.

    As you said while campaigning for Obama, some people will have to carry more of the burden so all of America can prosper You understand what that means, right? It means that raising taxes on productive people results in them having less money; less money for everything, including granddaughters.

    I’m sorry, Ashley, but the well has run dry. The free lunches are over.. I have no money to give you now. So, congratulations on your choice for “change.” For future reference, I encourage you to try and add up the total value of the gifts and cash you have received from us, just since you went off to college, and compare it to what you expect to get from Mr. Obama over the next 4 (or 8) years. I have not kept track of it, Ashley. It has all truly been the gift of our hearts.

    Remember, we love you dearly…..but from now on you’ll need to call the number mentioned above. Your “savior” has the money we would have given to you. Just try and get it from him.

    Good luck, sweetheart.

    Love,
    Grandpa

    • LindyMaeUSA

      WOW! Awesome! That was the most loving “reprimand” I’ve ever read or heard of! In my opinion, nothing can replace or substitute the “Wisdom of maturity.”

      God bless that dear grandpa for loving his granddaughter enough to patiently explain the CONSEQUENCES of HER decision and the fact that “SHE made her bed, and will now lie in it…alone!”

      • Raggs

        Yeah and look what bed the government wants us to lay in.

      • denniso

        Lindy…i guess our ‘wise’ grandpa voted for Cheny/Bush?? Does he have any credibility at all?? Don’t think so,any more than a real voter who was dumb enough to have done such an idiotic thing!!!

        • DaveH

          Denniso,
          Do you ever tire of making yourself look like a totally disrespectful jerk?

          • denniso

            Disrespectful of who?? The fictional ‘Grandpa’??? Give me a break…

  • Ben F

    Gramps that was an awsome economic true story. I love it. Remember the good ole days when neighbors hung people for paying taxes, voluntarily. I think were headed back in the right direction. Our forefathers never envisioned this or did they? Time will tell. Tyrany – when the people fear the government. Liberty – when the government fears the people. I like liberty!!!

    • LindyMaeUSA

      Ben F: I like your politics! (smile)

      Your stance reminded me of that one-liner I’ve memorized for the sheer power and beauty of it:

      “Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty.” ~Thomas Jefferson

      In the 21st. Century however, you might agree the word “timid” has been strategically replaced by “politically-correct!” though the meaning, intent and/or implication is obviously, THE SAME, at least, from my perspective.

    • David

      There was a great show on last night describing how Lee screwed up the Civil War for the south. Except this time I don’t think it will just be the south that stands up. We might even get Mass!

      Pass health care and add $10k plus in taxes to the middle class and see where we end up. Are they that stupid?

  • http://Don'thaveone Sally

    It sounds like to me that Denniso is on the dole. Reminds me of an email that I received back in December, it was this very attractive colored girl dressed to the hilt – saying oh she was so glad that they had now taken over the white house and she was going to get this and this and this – All of a sudden she stopped dead in her tracks – What did he say, we have to work!!! What was the name of that white guy I should have voted for.
    Things just absolutely amaze me. Like LindyMae said “Wisdom of Maturity” makes a big difference – we have none of that now unfortunately

    • DaveH

      Denniso may not be on the dole but he certainly is feeding at the Government trough somehow. The lefties would probably be happier if he wasn’t making them look bad with his rabid comments.

      • denniso

        Just blind conjecture and,of course,WRONG!!

    Vote Libertarian, the only party with the principles to cut back the size of Government and get us back to freedom:

      We’re counting on you today!

  • Warrior

    Robert,

    That story breaks my heart. Does anyone have an address for Ashley so I can send her some cash before the new health care tax kicks in. Denniso, I worked in the health care industry for 30 years and have seen the direct results of government intervention (i.e. mandates, lack of payments, overlap of authority, legal expenses, etc., etc., etc.) Health Care is soooo expensive because? You know the answer. Now, why in the world would anyone believe government is the solution? It’s astounding. Instead of using the usual gov approach of killing a cockroach by dropping a nuclear bomb on it, why don’t these smart people take a look at why the costs are as high as they are and continuing to climb. Oh, I forgot, we’re not interested in really solving the problem, we just need more tax revenue to feed our need to control the populice.

    • denniso

      You may not be interested in solving the healthcare problem,but I am…The repubs who you support NEVER took a single step to ‘fix the problem’,and now all they can do is try to block any positive changes..you people are neanderthals who should go back to your caves and let us civilized people ‘fix things’ that your ‘leaders’ have wrecked.

      • DaveH

        Yet, the “Neanderthals” are intelligent enough to learn from experience. Government fails at almost everything it does. And for good reason. Instead of being subject to the will of the consumers, they usually have lifetime jobs and nothing to gain by excelling at their jobs, so they typically coast.
        Throwing more government bodies at the healthcare system will only resort in higher costs for the country, not lower. Even the “Neanderthals” can figure that out. But not Denniso.

        • denniso

          You really don’t sound like a libertarian..you sound almost exactly like Limbaugh,who must be your actual guru…

      • DaveH

        Even the very Liberal state of Massachusetts is finally waking up to reality. The left-wing radicals are going to need to go back to the drawing boards and figure out how to propagandize more citizens before they strike again with their Pie-in-the-Sky fantasies.

        • GregS

          Yep. He did it! HE’S 41! The people of Massachusetts have spoken! Hopefully this Healthcare “Reform” bill (in it’s current form) will die!

          • denniso

            Do you read the news?? He voted for the Mass healthcare plan,that I opposed. He also is apparently pro choice..he also said that Americans deserve health ins and that the Obama plan has many excellent things in it. Don’t get carried away yet.

          • GregS

            As usual, denniso, you’ve missed the point: Whether he is pro-life or “pro-choice,” and whether or not he voted for the Mass healthcare plan is irrelevant. For all practical purposes, the current versions of THIS healthcare “reform” bill are DEAD, and the plans of the liberals to ram something through Congress (behind LOCKED doors), which has NO public mandate, have come to a screeching halt. Not only will he make that happen with his 41st vote, but the people of Massachusetts have sent a very strong message, which sends tremors to every Democrat in the House and Senate, who faces re-election in November.

  • American Citizen

    Several members of our family are in the health care field and do not like the bill at all. There is so much wrong with it. The people in Massachusetts can tell you what it would be like.

    • David

      Mine as well. They do not want to be unionized for sure! My mother is in ICU right now and I thank the lord this new health care plan has not been implemented.

    Should Coaxley win, tomorrow the Democrats will announce that the American people have spoken and want their Health Reform Bill passed. If Brown should win, the Democracts will cry foul and pass their Health Reform Bill in the most sinister way imagineable. Let’s wait for the results and see what happens. Either way, Washington will still put the screws to all us law-abiding, freedom loving, tax paying, patriotic Americans. Rumor has it, the bill also includes a 3,000% tax on vaseline. They know there will be an extrodinary demand for it once their health care reform bill is passed.

    I do not know what rock Denniso crawled out from under but I worked in the healthcare industry for about 30 years and I must concur with American Citizen! I worked in an ICU for 6 yrs., Chemical Dependency for 6 yrs., and some other places as an ADON, and DON, so I learned about costs and how and why they are applied. We have the best healthcare system in the world so it stands to reason that it is going to cost. If we get this foolish Government controlled system deaths of elderly and babies will increase many, many times more than we could ever imagine and the taxes will be many times more than we now pay! I have read both of the bills that were on the Internet briefly and they are nothing more than a plan to totally control people and shrink the population! It is NOT A HEALTHCARE BILL! It is a tax and kill bill!

      Well said, Marilyn!

    • Dennis

      100% on target. The bill needs to DIE. ;-) And now maybe it will Jan/19th/2010 Scott Brown :-)wins.

    Relax, Scott Brown (R) got 52% of the vote; Martha C. (D) got 42%; and Joe Kennedy (I) got 1%. That’s a slap in the federal-health-care-face. To pass the Health Care bill now, the Democrats will have to make another special offer to some Republican, to exempt some of his constituents from having to buy health insurance.

    At last, the era of the arrogant, liberal super-majority has ended, and not a moment too soon! The people of Massachusetts have spoken, and hopefully, so will the rest of the country in November!

    • denniso

      I can imagine that until now you and your buddies loathed Mass for its liberal people..now you love the people of Mass.

        Denniso,

        Wow…..Is that all you got? I really expected more!

        No, denniso, you still don’t get it! It’s the arrogance of liberal lawmakers, who are out of touch with their constituents, that I loathed, and still do, NOT the people or the state of Massachusetts.

        We all do the “Happy Dance” when our “party” wins. Why should this election be any different?

    Good idea that we help, encourage this communist Obamanite to succeed in Mass.. a state that is and has been learning so far to the left that the state almost actually tips over on its side. Communists should be crowded all into those states where the majority are, and have been, Marxist Communists, Obomanites, so that when the day comes they will all be in one place and easier to identify. Water seeks its own level. The American people will, at some point and time, prayerfully, stand up for something and will, hopefully, take their nation back. With all of the slimebuckets in a few locations, they can then be “neutralized”, as it were. So.. Party, my ass.. it is not party, it is just entitlement and communism. Obama is a communists, as is his silent primary backer, Bill (Bomb the Pentegon) communist Ayers. To hey with these dirtbags. Let me rot in the hell that they have, and are, created from theirselves. Slimebuckets. Buckets of puke.
