Former Governor Pataki Launches Anti-healthcare Reform Drive In Boston

April 26, 2010 by  

Former Governor Pataki launches anti-healthcare reform drive in Boston Former New York Governor George Pataki was in Boston on April 18 to launch a petition that proposes to repeal the Obama administration’s healthcare overhaul.

He was leading a rally staged by Revere America, an organization working to advance public policies rooted in freedom and free markets. The petition-signing event kicked off its national campaign to gather the signatures of one million Americans who want to repeal and replace "ObamaCare."

The event coincided with the 235th anniversary of Paul Revere’s famous ride for freedom.

"Just as 235 years ago our freedoms were in danger, they are now as well," the former governor said at the rally, quoted by NECN.com, a news website.

"We can’t wait until 2012 to take back this country. We have to do it in 2010, and every single day this year counts," he added.

The next day, Pataki was continuing his campaign for signatures in Iowa, where he explained why he decided to return to the national stage.

"I was happy as a private citizen," he said, quoted by Radio Iowa, "but when I see what is happening in Washington over the course of the last year and a half, like most Americans I believe we are seeing a government that is dramatically headed in the wrong direction."

Pataki is chairman of Revere America and served as the 53rd Governor of New York from 1995 to 2006. ADNFCR-1961-ID-19735026-ADNFCR

    Not everyone is braindead.. or should I say obama zombies.

  • Jim H.

    I wonder when Revere America will be seen as a threat by the left and be accused of spreading “hate rhetoric” because they really can’t refute their stand on the issues. Just like vilifying the TEA PARTY movement.

  • s c

    Pataki is right. Not only is this country on the wrong path, it’s more like Casey Jones completely wacked-out on drugs, with the train set on full throttle and the psychotic social engineer joyfully trying to inflict as much damage as possible in a single catastrophe.
    Imagine Pelosi and the rest of the asylum standing near the rails, cheering as the locootive is about to go over a cliff. It’s enough to wonder what drugs our “leaders” are taking. Over-medicated is a very polite way to describe these unAmerican, freedom-hating vermin, Raggs and JimH.

    • eyeswideopen

      Let them pay with chickens!!!!!! That is the best reform the repubs have. Paying doctors with chickens. Yup, that’s the repub answer to health care costs, barter with your doctor and pay them with chickens.Don’t you get embarrassed by these wackooooos????

      • s c

        Orbs, think for a minute. Your god’s healthcare scam will drive many MDs into retirement. How will Obummer replace them? Chasing an MD degree takes a long time, and you don’t practice medicine just because you want to ‘help’ people. You have to be properly trained.
        Obummer’s scheme assumes that the economy will re-materialize, many MDs won’t retire, jobs that have been lost will magically re-appear (REAL jobs, not slaving at McDonald’s, and NOT government ‘jobs’), the US will be out of Iraq and Afghanistan and somehow Obummer will be able to do what history proves that he CAN’T do.
        Ask some folks at a Las Vegas casino what kind of odds they’ll give that Obummer can do the impossible. Obummer is destroying America’s private sector economy. Most government jobs are NOT real jobs. They’re payback for easy votes.
        Obummer is a glorifed con artist, and he will pull you down with him. When that happens, don’t expect conservatives to throw you a flotation device. While you can, THINK.

          Not so glorified, just a con artist.

      • Jim H.

        Eyes, I don’t see the word chicken any where in this article. You never refute anything or make a point, to use your own words don’t you ever get embarrassed? You should.

      • Palin12

        eyes glued shut….cmon now, you know Lowden was merely using a metaphor. Watch the video on YouTube for cryin out loud! She clearly stated in the OLD days her grandparents paid for health care with chickens. Give it a rest, she’s our next senator.

      • Holly

        The Republicans had responsible healthcare ideas but they were effectively locked out of the debate on healthcare even while Obama kept claiming that he wanted a bipartisan effort. Those Republicans who were serving on committees admitted that the Democrats would not consider or compromise on anything and that they were going to railroad their own partisan healthcare plan through the senate and house. And they did exactly so. You can disagree but then you are being naive and partisan yourself.
        Look to what has happened in Massachusetts with their healthcare reform these past few years and you will see what the federal government shall face in the near future too. Costs are up an average of 27% for those who have to purchase their own healthcare insurance. Costs are also up for insurance that company’s buy, but their increases are less than those for private insurance. So, so much for limiting costs! And the costs to Massachusetts have been huge. The system is already broke there too. Mitt Romney, a Republican was governor of Massachusetts when this plan was passed. Even now has he looks back on it, he can see what went wrong and what changes are imperative. We should listen and learn.

  • JPW-

    The article is about healthcare and when I think of healthcare it is paid for with money or as the republican proposal with chickens.My next door neighbor has been ill for a long time now and has’nt even taken down his Mcain Palin posters.I asked him what are all those thousands of chickens running around his yard.He said “I have to go for an MRI on thursday”.

    • Jim H.

      JPW, On an itemized hospital bill I saw them charge a patient $8 for a Tylenol. If we went to a barter system, I should be able to pay an $800 dollar hospital bill with a 100 tablet bottle of Tylenol. If our congress were to do this, we would get the Dept of Agriculture to subsidize chicken farmers through a hidden egg tax to supply chickens to the FDA to trade for Tylenol that would be sold to a strictly regulated insurance company to get it to the patient to pay the hospital with. But they would have to be government inspected chickens and we would need to build a big new bureaucracy to over see the operation and figure out how to take 1200 pages of useless words to create the bill to make it law.

      • Holly

        It costs $8.00 for a Tylenol in a hospital because you are not only paying for the pill, but you are paying for the person’s time and attention who is giving you that pill and who recommended that pill too. It’s about salaries at that point, not the cost of the pill. Duh.

        • Jim H.

          Holly, that was a nice explanation about the cost of the pill. The topic was about barter so I picked that example arbitrarily out of the air. It could have been anything else, so thanks for the DUH.

    • Jeep

      The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act of 1986 requires that all hospitals and ambulance services to provide for anyone needing health care to be treated. There is no reimbursement to cover this. So, hospitals have to find “creative” ways to fund these patients. As usual, the cost is passed on to paying patients. Currently, there are proposals to add these costs to the new health care law. So, in effect the federal govt would pay and hospital costs (such as $8 Tylenol) would go down. Sure, and monkeys might fly out of my b***.

  • American liberal

    Let Pataki waste his time and money… That healthcare bill isn’t going anywhere … We may add the single payer option but the bill is here to stay….for being do loudly aginst big goverment, losing rights and more taxes… That new law in Arizona gives you everything you say you hate… I think this proves you’re just “anti Obama” nutcases that don’t know what the Hell you want…But ” here you go again” expanding the goverment…same republican BS you always pull

    • Jim H.

      Am. Lib,Being Anti- Obama makes us NUT CASES? Prove it. The new Arizona law doesn’t infringe on any AMERICAN CITIZENS rights, it just goes after people that are here ILLEGALLY, and I saw nothing about a tax hike in this law. Yes we do know what we want and you’re the one who just “doesn’t get it”. What does immigration reform have to do with repealing the health care bill, unless you’re talking about all the ILLEGALS that it won’t cover.

    • Jeep

      I don’t see how giving law enforcement the right and the tools to enforce current laws, and, the prevention of cities and towns from ignoring the law is an “expansion of govt”. Maybe, in your sychophnatic ravings you could explain this particular notion.

    • Robin from Arcadia, IN

      American Liberal… You seem quite sure of the health care bill being here to stay. What makes you think that? It was passed without being read, which is not just insane, but totally irresponsible. The majority of Americans do not want it. Watch and see. The elections are not too far off!

  • Mauiguy

    I LOVE seeing the rabid left vilify the Tea Party. Every time they do they expose their panic and when Obama does it he shows himself to be the bile-filled paper tiger he is. When you badmouth decent hardworking Americans, it drives other decent Americans into their camp. Even the formerly leftist newspaper on Maui is opening its eyes. It favorably gave 2/3rds of its FRONT PAGE plus half of another to pictures of our Tea Partiers throwing boxes of (tea?) into the harbor. They were labeled “Bailouts,” “Massive Federal Debt,” “Hope and Change,” and “Obamacare.” The boat, with a feathered “Indian” tossing the “tea” was named Big Government. A second big picture showed people lining the main drag with flags and signs saying “Recycle Congress,” etc. So I am delighted as a Partier, member of Campaign for Liberty, YAL, We The People Foundation, NRA ila, End The Federal Reserve, and gata, et al, when the asylum inmates in the District of Corruption start frothing at the mouth and denouncing real Americans it just galvanizes more real Americans.

  • American liberal

    You rightys don’t have the integrity to admitt it, but this countrys economy is already much better than the day Bush left office… Unemployment needs a lot more attention but at least the Presidents policys have stopped the bleeding … The numbers are easy to find.. Try the business section of any major newspaper or the Wallstreet journal .. But you have to turn off Rush and Fox “B.s” News for just a few minutes…

    • http://www.queencityconsultants.com/wordpress William Thomas

      You are full of BS.

    • kate8

      AL, your use of the word “integrity” made my stomach lurch.

      You and your ilk have no concept of or affinity for INTEGRITY.

    • Jeep

      Okay, let’s start with unemployment…

    • Jeep

      Oh yeah, and then we could move on to the deficit!

  • Jim H.

    Am. Lib, When the markets are at 13000 and the unemployment rate is at 4.4% like it was in 06 before the Dems screwed up congress, them talk to us. It’s worse now than it ever was during the whole time Bush was in. Just because you have yourself fooled, don’t try to insult our intelligence. You better answer your phone, it’s Kaptain Kool-Aid calling to tell you what to think next.

    • American liberal

      Jim.. Nonsense.. Everybody knows you republicans called the 06 democrat congress the ” do nothing congress” because they past the least number of bills in the last 20 years…plus, your hero George W. Had veto power… It’s also laughable that you want to use Bushs high point numbers in the economy( that he was riding from Clinton) before you admitt progress , it’s also petty and childish but what can I expect from people pretending to be
      John Paul Jones…

      • Jim H.

        A.L., The markets were higher and unemployment were lower in 06 then in 2000. The riding Clinton wave doesn’t wash. The 06 Dem congress? They didn’t start screwing things up until they got in, at the beginning of 07. I don’t see anything “petty and childish” about somebody seeing something wrong and trying to correct it. You want laughable go find a mirror.

        • American liberal

          Jim… Name 2 bills the 2006 congress passes that effected our economy….Hell, name 1… The 2006 congress spent most of it’s time trying to figureout Bushs budget because he kept hiding war cost…by 2006 Bush had already buried this country deep in debt to China….trying to blame the democrats for this economy just proves that you rightys will lie even with the facts looking you right in the eye…. Why do you think the 2006 democrats got elected?.. You’re not gonna try and tell me the republicans did a great job but the voters just wanted the democrats ?… The democrats were elected because you republicans were HORRIBLE..and still are…I’m waiting for you to tell me about those bills you claim the democrats passed that tanked the economy starting in 2006… This should be funny…let’s see how far off point you can get..

          • s c

            Please tell us you’re not a parent or a teacher or
            someone who wants to be the reincarnation of Hitler. I’m sorely tempted to tell you to get another brain transplant, as the first one you had didn’t ‘take.’ Your immune system is trying to reject your brain transplant, and that’s why you have such a problem with basic issues (1+1=2, etc.).
            PLEASE tell us you are NOT a teacher or a parent, and that you are not in a position to CONTAMINATE young minds. If anyone ever proved that it’s wrong
            to submit to being brainwashed, it’s you. Your parents must be humiliated to know that you go out of your way to reject common sense and any kind of standards for yourself.
            Do America a favor, honor your ‘beliefs,’ and move to a country where rank stupidity is seen as a virtue. America needs people like you like we need Obummer in the White House for 20 years.
            You need help. Go get it. And take all of your “friends” with you, comrade.

    These reject Republicans remind me of the crazy grandfather that still thinks he’s fighting the civil war…

      Chaos, Do you have a point to make, or did you just have an overwhelming need to just say something goofy?

      • Jeep

        Jim, just press “ignore”. Chaos has the maturity of a five year old bully on the playground, and just says the opposite in order to get a response. If we all ignore it, then maybe it will try to spread “chaos” elsewhere.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      DaveH,
      Very good and true!!!

  • American liberal

    Jim… Here’s an even better question for you to lie about… What was the state of our economy the week BEFORE President Obama took office…. Where were the markets?.. Where was unemployment ?…

    • Jim H.

      A.L. Where was the economy weeks before Obama took office compaired to now? BETTER than now. Who you calling a liar? You wouldn’t know the truth if it came up and introduced its self to you.

  • Chaos Factor

    The Rightwing always uses the same agenda… They want smaller goverment… But if they can use the goverment to Racial profile or stomp on minoritys rights then they want bigger goverment and more spending… And of course if were gonna need more police to enforce the new laws in Arizona then theirs gonna have to be a tax….this is how the republicans govern… Can I see your papers please?… This sure sounds like someone is losing rights?..of course the republicans don’t concider brown people worthy of rights… The only true American natives in this country are brown people…

    • JLC

      Chaos, I have a question. If a person — any person, regardless of color — should kick down your front door and come into your house, without your permission, does he (or she) have a right to stay, without your consent? Think about it! A citizen has rights. An alien (legal) has privileges until he (or she) becomes a citizen, at which time those privileges become rights. An ILLEGAL alien has the same rights — or lack thereof — as that hypothetical intruder into your home. That is what he (or she) is — an intruder!

      • JLC

        To Chaos: Postscript. My father was one of those “Brown People.” Except that he wasn’t brown. The popular term, when he was alive was “Redskins.”

  • Chaos Factor

    Jims argument is :: gee, everything was wonderful till we drove the economy over the cliff… And the engine was running great till it hit the ground…

    • Jim H.

      Chaos, My point is the economy Am. Lib says was given to us by Clinton actually improved under a Rep congress& white house. In 06 It was doing better than it ever did under Clinton. It IMPROVED. Get it? In 07 it started to slide, what was different? What was the biggest change that happened? Dem congress. In 09 It got even worse. Why? 16 months of a Dem monopoly later it’s still worse then the day Bush left office. GET IT?

    The Truth About the Health Care Bills – Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

    Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

    To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

    The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.

    However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

    The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

    The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

    This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide…

    If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

    So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law It doesn’t stop there though.

    The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;

    The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

    I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights… Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution.” If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

    For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

    If you don’t care about our constitution, or your rights under it, just do nothing.

    545 people vs 300 million people

    This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be – read it!!
    The article below is completely neutral, …not anti republican or democrat.

    Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinal has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgements made that impact each one of us every day.

    It’s a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!

    545 vs. 300,000,000

    EVERY CITIZEN NEEDS TO READ THIS AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS JOURNALIST HAS SCRIPTED IN THIS MESSAGE. READ IT AND THEN REALLY THINK ABOUT OUR CURRENT POLITICAL DEBACLE.

    Charley Reese has been a journalist for 49 years.
    545 PEOPLE–By Charlie Reese

    Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them..

    Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

    Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

    You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.

    You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

    You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

    You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

    You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

    I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

    Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

    What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits….. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

    The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

    If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red ..

    If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ , it’s because they want them in IRAQ

    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

    There are no insoluble government problems.

    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

    Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

    They, and they alone, have the power..

    They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

    Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees…

    We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

    Till he has no dough.

    When he screams and hollers;
    Then tax him some more,
    Tax him till
    He’s good and sore.
    Then tax his coffin,
    Tax his grave,
    Tax the sod in
    Which he’s laid…

    Put these words
    Upon his tomb,
    Taxes drove me
    to my doom…’

    When he’s gone,
    Do not relax,
    Its time to apply

  • Mr. Know it All

    This is for all of you silly Lib’s. I will now explain why we are in this financial mess.

    Everything started with Fannie May & Freddie Mack (Government run programs) Mr. ( or Mrs) Barney Frank (assisted by ACORN) forced the banks to make “risky” mortage loans to people that really could not afford them through the “community investment act” The banks did not and resisted from doing this. They did not want to “lax” their lending practices. The NEW 2006/7 congress inacted legislation to force the banks to make these risky loans. In return, they told the banks they would FEDERALLY insure these loans. Freddie and Fannie are now in the process of getting bailed out to the tune of 400 billion dollars of tax payers money! What’s worse, the same group of people that created the problem are the same people that are going to fix it!

    I for one, will “seriously” pay attention to MR. Graham!!!
