Republicans look to Senate, elections to reverse healthcare bill

March 29, 2010 by  

Republicans look to Senate, elections to reverse healthcare billAs the Senate Republicans are trying every parliamentary tool to kill the new healthcare reform bill, other conservatives are calling on Americans to "fire" the Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.

Among politicians who are expressing similar views is former presidential candidate Gary Bauer who said that the passage of the healthcare bill was "a tragic mistake," and warned Democrats that "elections have consequences." He also stated that the only remedy for what he called a disaster was a ballot box this November.

Meanwhile, the National Taxpayers Union (NTU)—a nonprofit organization working for lower taxes, smaller government and economic freedom—has called on the Senate to reject the bill.

Pete Sepp, NTU vice president for policy and communications, explained that a substantive healthcare reform can be enacted by allowing insurance competition across state lines, establishing less burdensome tax treatment for insurance purchases and pushing through malpractice reforms.

In his view, "Unbridled spending, tax hikes and a more powerful, less accountable government are not the ways to lower costs and improve quality of care."

    If people are truly interested in changing things, we must get rid of ALL career politicians, and we must find ways to keep their anti-freedom posteriors OUT of Washington. That is, if you’re truly interested in solving the problem.
    If you’re not interested in changing things, then stay retarded (by your own choice) and go the political party route. This time around, there will be two major sides at the voting booth(s). One side will see criminal behavior for what it is and what it has done to America, and the other side will be so fond of being braindead that nothing will ever force them to change their useful idiot ways.
    This may be your last chance, America. Do you want freedom or slavery? Decide.

    And forgot to add while I was at it he has ordered 400,000 peacekeeper police on american soil.

    • American liberal

      President Obama never said anything about adding 400,000 police to American soil…. It was a suggestion to increase the Afghanistan military… Soldiers and police…. NOT HERE… Sheersh…

        Hi I just wanted to say that Obama does indeed have overseas police on American soil they will be the one’s to just come in your space un anounced and take what they feel is a threat to Obama’s new way of life..I suggest if all of you are wanting to keep your freedom and our Constitution that you vote in Nov. Also you all need to look up a man named George Soros he’s a devil in a suit and he gives Obama advice about our healthcare, money spending,going green,. He gave Obama a job in ACORN check it out. George wants America brought down to its knees by breaking her and the American people..He also wants all of us to be tagged so they can keep tabs on what we do everyday and where we all go. Hilter is back..

    • American liberal

      Kbab… Your problem is you ” listen To Glenn Beck”… He’s an idiot and a fool…

  • Norm

    I would not count on the Senate for right wing support in 2010.

  • American liberal

    Kbab… You aren’t serious are you… I googled Fema death camps…. And a 6 year old could tell those sites were written by nutcases…. You’re flipped… Those sites are as crazy as the Obamas not an American sites…. How can you rightys be so gullible …you’ve gotten to the point that if a Internet site is crazy and bashes America then it must be true…

    • J.C.

      Am. Lib….be careful how far you have your head in the sand… dont be fooled by your ‘friends’ in gov’t. The move at a glacial pace for a reason. There are many BAD bills written and lined up for your King to sign into law should they see the light of day. Mass. has enacted a similar law and its already on their books. Be vigilant my friend.

  • American liberal

    If you listen to the poison that Fox news, Rush, Beck and Hannity spew 24/7 then your likely to be a nutcase…. These people that have Fox news on the Tv all day and all night, then jump in these cars and are just bombarded with rightwing hate become unstable people… Of course you’re angry.. They want you angry…

  • Robert

    Time to clean house in Washington of all these bums. We’re going to need the worlds largest shop vac to suck these vile rodents out of our Nation’s Capital.

    • J.C.

      I like those sticky traps….line the halls in DC with them.

  • Palin12

    I can’t wait to do my part to vote Reid out! Since the Tea Party Express in his hometown Searchlight, NV last Saturday, his approval rating slipped even further into a sleazy, scummy, backroom-dealing cesspool of liberal politicians who have been in Washington way too long. Did you hear who Dirty Harry was spending time with during the Tea Party rally? Would you believe Al Gore? Two boors!

  • JPW-

    What is that look on John Mc Cains face every time he’s standing behind Sarah Palin.Its as though he’s thinking he might have crapped himself or she did.
