Golgotha: ObamaCare Passes, 219-212

The roll call is here.

Just like thieves in the night...

What we're seeing here is no less than a deliberate attempt to crucify the American way of life.

If this stands, it will be an unimaginable assault on everything we hold dear. It will dilute our Constitution, and lessen our our liberties, our prosperity and those of our children.These people have an image of America so warped, so essentially misshapen and distorted that it goes beyond mere 'political differences'. And to reshape our republic into their own twisted image, they're prepared to ignore the Constitution, the will of the people, and even basic morality.

It is nothing less than a declaration of war and it must be treated accordingly.

The House vote is only the first battle in this war. The Senate still has to accept the House changes in the Senate's version of Obamacare bill, and the Senate Republicans were ignored when they tried repeatedly to get the Democrats to meet with them in front of the Senate parliamentarian to address the fact that the House 'fixes' in the so-called reconciliation contain significant differences and violates the Congressional Budget Act of 1974.

Unless the Democrats plan to blatantly ignore US law,( which based on past performance they are) knocking down the reconciliation would mean that the only bill the president could legally sign would be the original Senate bill. However, I fully expect that the Democrats will use their majority to push the illegal reconciliation through, , with its massive funding of abortion and the infamous bribes using the taxpayer's money that were used to buy votes. It's where I always felt this was heading anyway.

Still, it is necessary to fight this tooth and nail, so that the country sees and remembers.

Nor does it end there.

The Senate Bill has a number of unconstitutional aspects even without the Slaughter Solution, in that it violates the ninth amendment by being a government 'taking' of private property without compensation and the tenth amendment by violating state sovereignty, not to mention the slew of other laws Prez Zero and Nancy Pelosi broke to get it through.

So expect lawsuits and court challenges:

Bills and resolutions have been introduced in at least 36 state legislatures seeking to limit or oppose various aspects of the reform plan through laws or state constitutional amendments, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

"There's going to be a big free-for-all lawsuit about this," said Michael Bird, legislative counsel for the NCSL.

...So far, only two states, Idaho and Virginia, have enacted laws, while an Arizona constitutional amendment is seeking voter approval on the November ballot. No anti-health care reform legislation has emerged in Democrat-dominated states like Illinois and New York, according to the NCSL.

Idaho Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter signed a bill on Wednesday allowing the state's attorney general to file a lawsuit opposing federal healthcare legislation requiring individuals to buy medical insurance.

Otter sees federal legislation as overreaching and bound to add to medical expenses of state governments, spokesman Jon Hanian said .

"He's concerned we can't afford it," Hanian said, adding that Otter, a Republican, is disappointed in how the Democrat-led U.S. Congress is handling the legislation.
Florida's Attorney General (who is also running for Governor) and his counterpart from South Carolina have both vowed to sue over the individual mandate. Both states have a lot of seniors, who are getting screwed to the tune of half a trillion dollars in ObamaCare.

Expect challenges to Obamacare’s constitutionality to reach the Supreme Court in the coming months.

But no matter what the courts decide, the real victory will come when the Democrats face their constituents in November. There is not a single Congressman who voted for this travesty worthy of being returned to office, and we must defeat as many of them as possible and retake Congress, with repeal as the battle cry.

It is a war we can win.And we must make sure to elect not just the usual gang of appeasers, but legislators prepared to re-implement the Founder's principles that made this the freest, most prosperous country in history.

With majorities in both the House and the Senate much of the damage can be undone, particularly since ObamaCare doesn't really kick in to 2014. And then, it might also be time to use to power of Congress to start subpoenaing records and getting testimony from the current occupant of the White House and a few other players about some of the illegalities and irregularities used to push ObamaCare through.

First Golgotha...then the Resurrection.


please helps me write more gooder!
