MARCH MADNESS

A vote to pass the Health Care Bill could come as soon as March 11
MICHGANDERS WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

Despite the pledge to repeal this by some members of Congress, if this Bill passes, it’s nearly impossible to push back an entitlement once it passes. This Bill truly sends America down THE ROAD TO SOCIALISM

THIS IS IT.
After months of calls, faxes, protests and town halls THIS IS THE FINAL PUSH

The progressives are working hard now to get the Bill passed
WE NEED TO WORK HARDER

Michigan Congressional House Representatives NEED to hear from their constituents!

Calls are best, then faxes and then e-mails

If you call, please ask the person answering his or her name, and use their name during your call. Ask that he/she please add this call as a number to count as AGAINST the Health Care bill.

Give them your name and city.

Provisions for abortion are still in the Bill
“In total, the Senate bill is the most pro-abortion single piece of legislation ever to reach the floor of the House of Representatives,”
said Douglas Johnson, federal legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee.
“The so-called abortion limits that are in the Senate bill are all very narrow, loophole ridden, or booby-trapped to expire,” he said. He cites as an example a last-minute addition to the bill of $7 billion for community health centers, “from which abortions could be paid with no restriction.”

Special Attention to Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich. Who along with 11 other Democrat House members have said they will not vote for the health care bill unless it includes more stringent language to prevent federal funding from going toward abortion services.

Call Bart Stupak to encourage to him and his colleagues to continue to hold the line for life and vote “NO” Tell him even if all the provisions for abortion are removed you are still against this Bill.

According to The Hill

The “Cornhusker Kick Back” is out “President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform proposal released Monday eliminates controversial funds given to Nebraska as part of a deal to win the support of centrist Sen. Ben Nelson (D).”

But the ”Louisiana Purchase” is still in. “Obama’s bill, however, does not specifically remove $300 million of Medicaid funds pegged for disaster relief for which Louisiana is the only state eligible.”

Memo to the GOP Campaign

I get them in the mail. You probably do to. Those request for donations from the RNC. Sometimes they come with an innocuous survey with no brainer questions like “Do you support a massive government run health care system? Check one Yes No

I usually just throw them out. Oh I intended to write a letter and give them a piece of my mind but somehow with the busy life I am leading it just didn’t get done. However I still wanted to and felt I NEEDED to send a strong message to the GOP. I know you feel the same and I know, like myself, that despite our best intent, there wasn’t the follow through.

So I decided how can I easily get my message to the GOP? How can you?

Well one picture is worth a thousand words…this graphic (below) is down-loadable and printable right off the site!

So next time you get one of those letters from the RNC asking for donations, all you have to do is print out, and return in the conveniently post-paid envelope supplied to you by the RNC!

Share with your friends, lets get thousands upon thousands of these to the RNC! Send the message..WAKE UP GOP!

AFTER ACTION REPORT:Michigan Patriots Deliver Pink Slip to Liberal Debbie Stabenow

IMG_3336Grassroots in Michigan organized and was joined by Tea Party of West Michigan Southwest MI Tea Party Patriotsand other patriots from across Michigan to protest and deliver a Pink Slip to liberal tool Debbie Stabenow with a message, “we will do everything in our power to make sure Sen. Stabenow does not return to office in 2012” Debbie Stabenow is a lock step liberal who was on the Senate Finance Committee that voted the Baucus Amendment out. Please take a minute to read the most egregious parts of the Baucus Amendment AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST because you won’t hear the truth from Debbie!

What is in the Baucus Health Care Amendment

Make Mine Freedom!

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” – Ben Franklin

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is powerful enough to take everything you have.” – Thomas Jefferson

Obama resist 2

“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.” Thomas Jefferson

Setting Brush Fires…Why not Filibuster?

It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds. Samuel Adams

Finance committee vote on Baucus bill scheduled for this coming Tuesday….
This is crunch time folks. We need to flood the Finance Committee members with faxes, phones, call and e-mails (least effective)

Here is a link to all members of the Finance Committee and their contact information

Debbie Stabenow is on the Committee. She needs to be flooded with e-mails and faxes and pink slips! Turn you e-mail or fax into a pink slip! YOU’RE DONE DEBBIE!

What happens when the Baucus bill gets out of committee?

Washington Examiner Opinion

“Whatever the content of the Baucus bill once it is voted out of the finance committee, it will disappear into a legislative black hole as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and their key aides do what they did on the economic stimulus package back in February — huddle together behind closed doors to write the final bill, which will then be presented as a fait accompli in the form of a conference report. Everything else is mere sound and fury signifying nothing until Harry and Nancy do their thing in the dark.”

From FedUpUsa

Nicholas Ballasy reports “a senior aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told CNSNews.com that it is ‘likely’ that Reid will use H.R. 1586—a bill passed by the House in March to impose a 90-percent tax on bonuses paid to employees of certain bailed-out financial institutions—as a ‘shell’ for enacting the final version of the Senate’s health care bill, which Reid is responsible for crafting.”

This procedure is the same unconstitutional procedure they used to pass the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act (EESA) back in November to give Hank Paulson his ‘$700 Billion Bazooka.’

Article I, Sec. 7: ALL bills for raising revenue will originate in the House.

They are doing exactly what they did with EESA/TARP – by passing the house by putting the HC bill on a revenue bill. This results in the Senate originating a revenue bill!

Washington DC must be shut down now. We are about to lose our country entirely.

Stephanie S. Jasky, Founder, Director

I agree with Stephanie, we must call/fax AND we need to include top Republicans/Conservatives. They SHOULD be shouting this from the roof tops and planning a Senate filibuster
Why aren’t they????

Senate filibuster from “The Making of America, the substance and meaning of the Constitution” by W. Cleon Skousen…

…the principled devise for is for a small group of Senators to get con troll of the floor and talk in tandem for long periods of time. The whole object is a delaying action”

In 1935, Huey Long of LA (Democrat) held the Senate floor for 15 hours while he read form the telephone book, a mail order catalog and the newspaper. The longest filibuster on record is that of Strom Thurmond of SC (when he was a Democrat) He held the Senate floor in 1957 for twenty-four hours

CRS-20
The Impact of Filibusters

Obviously, a filibuster has the greatest impact on the Senate when a 60-vote majority cannot be assembled to invoke cloture. In that case, the measure or other matter that is being filibustered is doomed unless its opponents relent and allow the Senate to vote on it. Even if cloture is invoked, however, a filibuster can significantly affect how, when, and even whether the Senate conducts its legislative and executive business. In fact, it is not an exaggeration to say that filibusters and the prospect of filibusters shape much of the way in which the Senate does its work on the floor

Why shouldn’t Republicans/Conservatives filibuster now? Is there less at stake then in the past? Wouldn’t that get press and therefore give them an opportunity to expose the plan to more Americans?

So the Democrats/Liberal/Fascists can use cloture to stop the filibuster but it takes 60% of the Senate, every Democrat and both Independents and…. time

“The votes of only 51 Senators are needed to pass a bill on the floor. It can, however, require the votes of 60 Senators to invoke cloture on the bill in order to overcome a filibuster and enable the Senate to reach that vote on final passage.”

Conservatives can use the filibuster to our country’s benefit, to tell the American people why they are doing it. The Democrats/Liberal/Fascists can counter with the “Nuclear Option”

But would they? They want bi-partisan, or at least the illusion of it and if they do go ahead with a Nuclear Option, Republican/Conservatives can counter…Democrats/Liberal/Fascists squashed debate again, rammed through another massive government control spending bill. They wanted this thing; we didn’t want any part of it!

Either way this bill is going to get passed because the “usual suspect” RINOS will defect (think Olympia Snowe) but it could be in lesser form and with the Republicans/Conservatives showing that they did everything to stop another massive spending bill of over a trillion dollars coupled with a government take over of our liberties! In other words, their job.

Lets’ face it what do they have to lose?
Republicans/Conservatives have been shut out, disregarded and disrespected 37 ways to Sunday by this administration, especially by Pelosi and Reid. Remember Pelosi hissed, “We Won” and then proceeded (excuse my language) to bitch slap the Republicans/Conservatives around.

We have had tea parties, calls/faxes e-mails, taken to the streets, counter-protested, gave and went to Town Halls, blogged, YouTubed, we have went toe-to toe and sometimes face-to-face with the opposition. And worked over time because we know it takes ACTION!

I want to see some courageous forget-about-my-career action from The Hill!

Where is our William Wallace?

Instead of focusing on the opposition entirely, perhaps we need to focus and demand that those on our side have a tea party of their own!!

The very future of our country is at stake…TEA PARTY ON THE HILL!
