I watched the Senate vote on the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act this morning and with a sinking feeling watched my country get sold down the river. I learned a few painful lessons this morning:
There is no such thing as a “conservative” or “moderate” democrat – when push came to shove, all of the “Ds” along with the Socialist and the “Independent” ran right off the cliff for the worst piece of legislation in the history of the Republic.
It has never been about healthcare – it has always been about power. There is no way for a reasonable person to justify this wretched healthcare bill unless you see it through the prism of a pure and simple power grab.
It really can happen here. For a very long time I thought that we wouldn’t go like lambs to the slaughter like the English, French, Italians, Germans, etc. etc. – but we did.
I’m proud to be a Republican. I only wish that our leaders in the Senate and House would use less polite but more accurate words like “liar” or “thief” or maybe “prostitute” to describe the other party.
“Liberal American” is an oxymoron – no one who believes in the principles that are the foundation of the country would vote to betray the American people with the paradoxically named Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act.
Every democrat has a price. They sold their votes for power and influence, but they sold them just the same. It was bribery and they are no better than simple felons.
Our government stabbed us right in the back for Christmas. Ho, ho, ho.
