Pete Visclosky votes YES to Rapists, Sex Offenders receiving Viagra under Healthcare Law.

Pete Visclosky is a man’s man.  He voted yes  to providing Viagra to sex offenders. AYFKM?

New item here.

The Congressional Research Service has confirmed Sen. Tom Coburn’s assertions that sex offenders not in prison could get Viagra and other drugs treating erectile dysfunction under health plans subsidized by taxpayer dollars.

That’s right, Pete Visclosky is requiring residents of Indiana to PAY for these creeps erections, setting aside that these dudes are convicted rapist, child molesters or other sex offenders. Is Pete a fan of hardened criminals? You decide.

What else did Pete Visclosky spend our money on when he voted YES (twice) to this healthcare law? Don’t bother to ask Pete, he never read the bill and he said so himself.

Pete Visclosky – The gift that keeps on giving.

Indiana Attorney General to Join Lawsuit against Obamacare health care reform

Alright, go Greg Zoeller.  Indiana decided to join 13 other states (possibly more to come) in a lawsuit against the federal government challenging the national healthcare reform law. It’s cheaper by the dozen so this means that the cost to the State to pursue this suit will be split between the 13 others. Whatever money does get spent you can blame Pete Visclosky. He is the one who brought this monster to our doorstep. I doubt that any legal fees between 14 states will come close to the $11 million Pete Visclosky took from Indiana, right out of the gate for just one line item in the massive 3000 page healthcare law.

The time is now to remove these non-representatives. Help elect Rob Pastore in the May 4th primary.

What most people do not realize is that the Founding Fathers NEVER intended for the federal government to grow to have the powers it currently has given itself. The states were to have the power and the feds were to be a sidebar deal with little to no impact on what happens to the citizens of any state.

The federal government is mandating you to buy health insurance or else you will be fined . How’s the Hopey Changey thingie working for you now? Those 16, 500 additional IRS agents will be sure to pick your pocket in a nanosecond  What’s next? Use your imagination, the Feds are.

INDIANAPOLIS | Indiana will join a multistate lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the recently approved national health reform law.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller said Monday the state will sign on to a court case filed last week by 13 other states that claims Congress exceed its authority by creating an individual mandate to purchase health insurance.

“This is an insurance product that everybody, as a condition of being a citizen of the United States, will be required to purchase under the threat of penalties,” Zoeller said. “This is the first time the federal government has required people to purchase a commercial good.”

The Republican attorney general said it’s in the best interests of all Americans that the Supreme Court determine whether Congress has the power to impose such a mandate.

“This is such a large program that’s almost unprecedented that everyone’s going to need to know the answer whether this is constitutional or not,” Zoeller said.

With Zoeller now on board, 13 of the 14 state attorneys general suing to stop health care reform are Republicans. The new law was a legislative priority for President Barack Obama, a Democrat, and won congressional approval without a single Republican vote.

Zoeller said that while he believes the law was enacted through a fiercely political process, his motivation for acting has nothing to do with politics.

“I’ll stand by the proposition that when the sovereignty of our state government is in question, I think it’s really a responsibility to raise the challenge,” Zoeller said.

Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels said last week he encouraged Zoeller to join the lawsuit. The attorney general’s office also received some 7,000 e-mail messages, 100 phone calls and more than a dozen letters supporting a court challenge.

By joining with other states in the lawsuit, Indiana will be able to save money compared to the cost of filing its own challenge to the health reform law, Zoeller said.

He wouldn’t estimate how much Indiana might spend on the case, but said “I doubt you’ll see a large figure at the end of this.”

The health reform lawsuit was filed in federal court in Pensacola, Fla., seven minutes after Obama signed health reform into law. The lawsuit will be amended soon to include Indiana and its claims, Zoeller said.

Pete Visclosky Costs the People of Indiana $400 Million Dollars by Voting YES to Obamacare.

For all that voted YES This Ones For You

Pete Visclosky removed $25 million dollars from the State’s budget right out of the gate with the new Obamacare law and this is just the first of many costs and losses of revenue (which translates into higher taxes) associated with this disastrous, unconstitutional law.  The money Pete is taking from the State of Indiana will grow in one decade to $400 million dollars. When asked if the healthcare reform bill was constitutional he said that he thought it was and that his wife is a lawyer.  What Mrs. Pete does for a living has no bearing here, but he thought it led credence to his voting in favor of this socialist takeover of 1/6th of our national economy.    He said that if we do not think it is constitutional we always have redress.  That right there folks is Pete Visclosky giving Indiana the finger, doing what he wants to do for his political career and saying, “So sue me.”.

In all of Pete’s January town halls he claimed that Indiana needed this legislation and that it would be very good for us.  When asked about the cost he said it was paid for. When it was pointed out the over $250 billion dollar cost for The Doctor Fix was not reflected in the bill he moved right along, never addressing the fact that this legislation would cost America over a trillion dollars. They fudged the numbers, left out The Doctor cost and made sure to sell it as being under a trillion.  This was before anyone knew that the federal government was also including the takeover of education in the form of Pell Grants and student loans. That gem was slipped in at the last minute. Who knew? The money they make from that takeover helps to offset the cost of this program.  Another jewel which he failed to mention is that the Medicaid prescription drug rebates, which Indiana fought hard for as revenue for the State’s programs will now be the property of the federal government. Indiana haveth, Pete Visclosky and the Feds taketh.

And if you as a citizen do not pay up for a health insurance policy, Pete has agreed to the hiring of an additional 16,000 IRS agents who will make sure the feds get their pound of flesh.  Thanks Pete.

Pete never uttered a peep when there was an issue with the abortion language.  He was voting YES regardless of what was in the bill, and no one knew what was in the bill.

Remember Obama and all of the Dems, including Pete Visclosky, saying that one thing that would happen immediately is that children with pre-existing conditions will get healthcare?  THAT LANGUAGE WAS NOT EVEN IN THE BILL.  They had to go back, after the bill was signed by Obama and add it in.  How is that for honesty and being true to America?  The only real accomplishment of this bill is that it creates a framework for the federal government taking over every aspect of your life.

You can read the article here:

New drug rules to cost state $25 million in 2011” (Bold and italics below are mine)

INDIANAPOLIS | While the most costly provisions of federal health reform won’t take effect until 2014, state officials determined Indiana’s budget will pay a price starting this summer.That’s because the new health law takes money from prescription drug rebates currently paid to state Medicaid programs and redirects those funds to the federal government.As a result, Indiana will lose $25 million during the 2011 budget year, which begins in July, and as much as $400 million during the next decade, said Anne W. Murphy, secretary of the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration.

Kitchell forwarded Murphy’s letter to lawmakers on the StateBudget Committee, including state Sen. Karen Tallian, D-Ogden Dunes, warning committee members there will more bad budget news to
come.

“There is still a lot of work to do to evaluate the extra costs imposed on Indiana taxpayers, which will eventually be in the billions of dollars,” Kitchell said.

According to Murphy, Indiana has done better than most states in negotiating favorable rebates from drug companies. This has “enabled Indiana to capture rebates well beyond the minimums established by the federal government,” she said.

But now that the federal government will receive the rebates instead of states, Indiana will lose more money than other states, Murphy said.

Thanks Pete Visclosky. You voted YES to this law because you think that the crooks and cronies in Northwest Indiana have the November General Election sewn up in a bag for you. You voted YES to this legislation that is not only damaging immediately to the State of Indiana, but is the gift that keeps on giving.  Indiana will suffer for decades and longer unless we vote you out of office and hire a true representative come November.

The reality is that you harm Northwest Indiana way more than you ever helped. When you repeated over and over during your January town halls that you were in favor of this federal takeover of 1/6th of the economy, when you repeated how great this will be for Indiana, you failed to explain that the only true benefactors will be the Federal Government.  I am sure you will write some political speech to explain away the consequence you thrust upon the people of Indiana and I am sure you are hoping that the people in Indiana District 1 forget about the financial pain you personally inflicted not only on your constituents, the State of Indiana, but the rest of the nation.

We will not forget what you did Pete and we will fight the corruption that put you in office and keeps you in office.  The people are awake now Pete and things will never be the same for you and your ilk.

The $400 million dollar loss in rebate revenues for the State of Indiana is just the tip of the iceberg.  More pain is coming and you can thank Pete Visclosky.  As of the signing of this unconstitutional healthcare ‘reform’ bill, the people of Indiana, according to Pete, do not deserve to retain the State’s savings from the prescription drug rebates, Pete believes the federal government deserves Indiana’s money.

Mind you that come November, Pete Visclosky will trot out a figure representing the amount of earmarks has has pushed through.  He hopes that no one asks him where that money went.  He hopes everyone thinks that money went to Northwest Indiana.  What he does NOT want you to know is that he gets 97% of his campaign donations from outside of the state of Indiana and that his earmarks are divided up between those contributors who are not companies headquartered in NW Indiana. While meandering through our wallets he holds up a happy face sign and claims that he has brought ‘all of this money back to Indiana.  Do not be fooled by his campaign rhetoric, dig down and find the truth. Find out where that money really went.

The majority  of the earmarks he claimed to have brought ‘home’ really never made it to Northwest Indiana, but Pete loves to claim otherwise. He guided millions of dollars of our money to companies out of his district. Sadly, prior to 2007, Congresscritters did not have to sign their name to earmarks. We will never know how many billions of dollars of earmarks were used to secure campaign contributions over a 26 year career in congress. As soon as they showed some light on earmarks back in 2007 they had a Who’s Who of Porking America, and Pete Visclosky was shown as being # 6 out of 435 representatives.  That is some accomplishment and that was back in 2007.  Since being under investigation for Pay to Play, Pete has drastically reduced his earmark requests, plus there is an election coming in November and he once again, will try to cover the truth with spewing out some ‘evidence’ that he is a good guy, serving Northwest Indiana. Yeah, right.

There is no mistake that something was and is dirty in DC with Pete Visclosky being investigated by the Department of Justice. Stroll through Taxpayers for Commonsense and see what is up with your representative

Bring your friends and vote in May for the primary election and vote for Rob Pastore.  He is the person who will be a true and ethical representative for US Congress in Indiana District 1.

ROB PASTORE ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING OBAMACARE AND THE FIRST CONGRESSIONAL SEAT

Rob Pastore for Congress, Indiana, District 1 released this statement after the House voted in favor of the healthcare legislation.  Visit his website and add your donation to his campaign.  The time is now for a representative of and for the people of Northwest Indiana.

ROB PASTORE ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING OBAMACARE AND THE FIRST CONGRESSIONAL SEAT

HAMMOND, IN – Congressional candidate and political activist Rob Pastore has released a statement on Pete Visclosky’s votes for the nationalizing of 1/6th of the US economy yesterday, Sunday, May 21, 2010. Mr. Pastore stated,

“Pete Visclosky didn’t listen to the voices of the American people and to the voices of the people of the First Congressional District of Indiana. Mr. Visclosky’s yes votes on the job-killing Obama/Pelosi healthcare bill are the most egregiously irresponsible actions ever taken by the First Congressional District’s US Rep. This bill will not reduce the deficit. It will steal half a trillion dollars from cash-strapped Medicare. Our senior citizens and aging baby-boomers who deserve better, will end up with inferior quality healthcare. They will be denied medical treatments and access to medical care which they have paid into for their entire working lives”

Pastore further stated,

” Pete Visclosky has ignored senior citizens, union workers, the Tea Party, NWI Patriots, and other conservative groups who have protested at his Merrillville office for months. These freedom loving Americans should not be brushed aside. ”

“Pete Visclosky didn’t listen to the union workers who will be taxed on their good health plans to pay for this bill. “.

“This Obamacare bill will force insurance companies to raise rates the same way credit card companies were forced to raise interest rates several months ago. ”

Pastore believes there is a triangle of corruption surrounding Visclosky. “The three sides of the corruption triangle are made up of: 1). Federal earmarks created by Visclosky and paid for by taxpayers; 2).Campaign contributions from the earmark recipient companies; and 3). Federal, mainly defense department and energy contracts for these same companies, most of which are from outside of Indiana. This triangle of corruption has quietly funded Visclosky’s 12 re-election bids. ”

“Pete Voted in January to raise deficit spending by $1.9 trillion. We are never going to experience job growth if more and more taxes will be placed on small businesses and consumers to pay for the out of control spending of this Congress.”

Mr. Pastore concluded, “Pete’s triangle of corruption, his ignoring of the patriotic protesters, his support for deficit spending, and his not listening to union members, senior citizens, baby boomers, and working Hoosiers has made him an ineffective voice for the good people of the First Congressional District. We need sensible healthcare reform that includes tort reform, preserves medicare, protects social security, maintains the high quality of healthcare that our retired workers deserve, and protects union workers who enjoy good health plans that aren’t taxed now. Isn’t it time for a congressman who will listen to the people?”

Exact List of who Voted YES for the Healthcare Bill by State, Who voted for Socilized Medicine.

Okay folks, time to check your State and vote out each and every representative that voted YES to one of the most damaging pieces of legislation to ever pass through The House of Representatives.  The fight is not over.  We have witnessed an administration that could care less about the people. We are seeing just how Congress operates, ignoring the will of their constituents and voting according to party lines, voting and passing legislation by hook and crook, paying off congress members for votes and cutting backroom deals.  55% of the citizens in the USA did NOT want this healthcare legislation passed yet the Democratic Party, which has been takeover by ‘Progressive Liberal’ (aka Socialists) have rammed this legislation through, not because it will benefit America, but because it benefits their agenda for a larger Federal government and eventual control of all the people. Their goal is to destroy capitalism and to replace it with a fascist society and they are well on their way with the federal government in the banking business, owning auto manufacturing and slipping in the takeover of education into this healthcare legislation.

We have no time to waste.  Look at your State from the link above and see who voted yes and then VOTE them OUT.

For the Indiana folks, Visclosky, Peter voted YES along with Donnelly, Joseph Simon, Carson, Andre D., Ellsworth, John Bradley, Hill, Baron P..

Now it is time to work for a candidate that will win in the primary and then take it to them in November.  Get involved.  Look at who votes YES in your area and join a campaign to throw them out. Volunteer for a candidate that will replace these dogs. I am doing just that for Rob Pastore who will replace Pete Visclosky in Indiana District 1.

No One has Read or Seen the Healthcare Reform Bill Yet, But Pete Visclosky says he is voting YES.

Do not let Pete fool you if he says he is ‘undecided’ regarding how he will vote on the proposed Healthcare Reform bill.  All throughout January in each of his town halls he began by saying he is in favor of the healthcare reform bill. He has not  replied to any correspondence nor been reported saying that he would vote NO on Obamacare.

Not one person, as I write this, knows what is in the bill and even Obama, as of last night said that he doesn’t know what is in it.  Yet, Pete Visclosky and his Democrat clan are voting YES?

Pete Visclosky voted with his party 97.5%.  His job must be pretty easy, just vote whichever way Nancy Pelosi tells him to vote, regardless of what his constituents in Indiana District 01 desire of their representative.

Pete Visclosky has played a major role in growing the federal government and reducing the liberties of Americans, creating the welfare state.  Pete was asked if he thought the healthcare takeover was constitutional and he said that he ‘thought’ it is, and mentioned that his wife is a lawyer.  What his wife has to do with it I don’t know.  As far as I know, she lives in California with their children and Pete just stops in to visit Indiana so as to keep his residency, but what do I know.  He gets 97% of his campaign donations from out of State, so he might as well not live herehardly anyone supports his campaigns.

Pete basically said that the people always have ‘redress’ as an option if we don’t like the Obamacare bill.   In basic language, he is saying, “I don’t care if it is constitutional, I am going to vote for it and if you don’t like it, sue me (the Federal government).”

Isn’t that nice?  When we hired him to represent us he swore on a bible to uphold the constitution and now he says that he really doesn’t care if any bill is constitutional, he is going to vote according to what suits his political career. That is really not a news flash to anyone who has paid attention for a nano-second as to what Pete does in DC.

Do you really want a man like that in office?  Come May 4th, vote for Rob Pastore and you will see a difference for Indiana District 01.  Step up to the plate and make a difference. Contact his website and volunteer.

If you think that Pete Visclosky is undecided regarding a government takeover of 1/6th of our economy, read this letter received yesterday:

Thank you for contacting me to express your concerns regarding healthcare legislation.  I appreciate hearing from you.

On November 7, 2009, I supported and the House approved its version of healthcare legislation, H.R. 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act, by a vote of 220 to 215.  I supported H.R. 3962 for a number of reasons, primarily because I believe that it will make our healthcare system better.  There is a cost of doing nothing to reform healthcare, and while the bill may not be perfect, it will improve our current situation.  Given the complexity of the situation and the magnitude of the healthcare problems that we face, I believe H.R. 3962 is a good bill that will help the citizens of Northwest Indiana.

For too long, our healthcare system has allowed millions of Americans to go uninsured, tolerated egregious and abusive business practices by big insurance and pharmaceutical companies, and ignored skyrocketing costs.  It has diminished our nation’s collective health and drained our economy.  H.R. 3962 represents a significant effort to address the iniquities of our current healthcare system.

Specifically, H.R. 3962 strengthens the healthcare market for all Americans.  For those with insurance, the measure would establish benefits to be included in all health insurance options, including preventative care, mental health services, and dental and vision services for children.  Additionally, the measure would establish annual and lifetime out-of-pocket spending caps to ensure that no family faces bankruptcy due to medical expenses.  Further, H.R. 3962 would eliminate the decades-long exemption of health insurance companies from federal               anti-trust laws, enabling the regulation of abusive business practices.


For those without insurance, H.R. 3962 would establish a public health insurance option to compete with – not replace – private insurance plans.  The public health insurance option would aim to provide more Americans with healthcare coverage and would be financed through its premiums.  The measure would allow the Secretary of Health and Human Services to negotiate physician and hospital rates for the public option and would prohibit insurance companies from denying coverage based on a pre-existing condition.

Importantly, the measure would repeal the prohibition on negotiating with pharmaceutical companies and would require the Secretary of Health and Human Services to negotiate the prices of prescription medications for Medicare beneficiaries.  It is my sincere hope that these negotiations will ameliorate the high out-of-pocket costs for prescription medications faced by our seniors.  Additionally, H.R. 3962 would provide savings to the Medicare programs by improving payment accuracy to Medicare Advantage.

With regard to businesses, I believe that under our current system, employers that   provide health insurance for their employees are faced with an unfair disadvantage because           they are forced to subsidize the costs for employers who do not provide care.  I am pleased that           H.R. 3962 would establish a Health Insurance Exchange where businesses will benefit from large group rates and a greater choice of insurance options for their employees.  I believe that the Health Insurance Exchange will equalize costs to employers and ensure that small businesses remain America’s economic engine.  Further, the measure would provide tax credits to eligible small businesses for assistance with the costs of providing health insurance to their employees.


Finally, H.R. 3962 is not only fully paid for, but according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office it would reduce the deficit by $104 billion over the next ten years and would continue to reduce the deficit in the following decade.


While both the House and Senate have passed comprehensive healthcare legislation, there continues to be a broad ranging debate, both within Congress and across the United States, regarding the approach to finalize this legislation into law.  As this process continues, I will continue to work to ensure that the final version of this legislation is paid for, allows healthcare coverage choices for all Americans, and provides fair compensation for all healthcare providers.


Thank you again for contacting me.  Do not hesitate to let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Peter J. Visclosky
Member of Congress

Harry Reid and the Healthcare Reform Poison Pill Gives America a Nasty Case of BendOver Disease

There is a reason why Obama, Reid and Pelosi do not want America to know what is in the proposed HealthCare Reform Bill. They do not want America to know what kind of tricks they have installed within the bill that basically creates a framework for a fascist healthcare system, a foundation for total government control of all healthcare. They need to shove this down America’s throats quickly even at the cost of throwing Democrats off the cliff this November.  The foundation of this bill is socialized medicine and it’s framework of fascism is more important than the will of the people or the loss of majority. In war it is called collateral damage when you destroy something outside of your target and Obama is at war with the people. He does not care that 52% of the population do NOT want this bill.  Only 43% do want it.  When does Obama begin governing for the people in lieu of his hidden agenda?

They never stop, they will keep trying to shove this down our throats until they get it through…pass on to everyone…

The impudent tyranny of Sen. Harry Reid

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada is proving once again the maxim that darkness hates the light.

Buried in his massive amendment to the Senate version of Obamacare is Reid’s anti-democratic poison pill designed to prevent any future Congress from repealing the central feature of this monstrous legislation!

Beginning on page 1,000 of the measure, Section 3403 reads in part: “. it shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment or conference report that would repeal or otherwise
change this subsection.”

In other words, if President Barack Obama signs this measure into law, no future Senate or House will be able to change a single word of Section 3403, regardless whether future Americans or their representatives in Congress wish otherwise!!

Note that the subsection at issue here concerns the regulatory power of the Independent Medicare Advisory Board (IMAB) to “reduce the per capita
rate of growth in Medicare spending.”

That is precisely the kind of open-ended grant of regulatory power that effectively establishes the IMAB as the ultimate arbiter of the cost, quality and quantity of health care to be made available to the American people. And Reid wants the
decisions of this group of unelected federal bureaucrats to be untouchable for all time.

No wonder the majority leader tossed aside assurances that senators and the public would have at least 72 hours to study the text of the final Senate version of Obamacare before the critical vote on cloture. And no wonder Reid was so
desperate to rush his amendment through the Senate, even scheduling the key tally on it at 1 a.m., while America slept. True to form, Reid wanted to keep his Section 3403 poison pill secret for as long as possible, just as he negotiated his
bribes for the votes of Senators Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Bernie Sanders of Vermont behind closed doors.

The final Orwellian touch in this subversion of democratic procedure is
found in the ruling of the Reid-controlled Senate Parliamentarian that the
anti-repeal provision is not a change in Senate rules, but rather of
Senate “procedures.” Why is that significant?  Because for 200 years,
changes in the Senate’s standing rules have required approval by
two-thirds of those voting, or 67 votes rather than the 60 Reid’s
amendment received. Reid has flouted two centuries of standing Senate
rules to pass a measure in the dead of night that no senator has read, and
part of which can never be changed. If this is not tyranny, then what is?

DON’T SIT BY AND LET THIS HAPPEN IN THE DARK!!!
FORWARD TO EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST!

Scott Brown(R) leads Martha Coakley(D) in MASS race for Kennedy’s Senate Seat – Dems poised to deny him a seat if he wins.

The people over at Public Policy Polling have the latest rundown on the race for Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat.

Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley at 48-47. That may not seem like a huge deal, but Massachusetts is a solid Dem state, with the Kennedy’s running that state since forever.

The Massachusetts Senate race is now a toss up.

Buoyed by a huge advantage with independents and relative disinterest from Democratic voters in the state, Republican Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley 48-47.

Here are the major factors leading to this surprising state of affairs:

-As was the case in the Gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia last year, it looks like the electorate in Massachusetts will be considerably more conservative than the one that showed up in 2008. Obama took the state by 26 points then, but those planning to vote next week only report having voted for him by 16.

-Republicans are considerably more enthusiastic about turning out to vote than Democrats are. 66% of GOP voters say they are ‘very excited’ about casting their votes, while only 48% of Democrats express that sentiment- and that’s among the Democrats who are

-Brown has eye popping numbers with independents, sporting a 70/16 favorability rating with them and holding a 63-31 lead in the horse race with Coakley. Health care may be hurting Democratic fortunes with that group, as only 27% of independents express support for Obama’s plan with 59% opposed.

-In a trend that’s going to cause Democrats trouble all year, voters disgusted with both parties are planning to vote for the one out of power. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Brown’s standing is that only 21% of Massachusetts voters have a favorable opinion of Congressional Republicans…but at the same time only 33% view Congressional Democrats favorably. And among voters who have a negative take on both parties, who account for more than 20% of the electorate, Brown leads 74-21.

-Because he’s basically been untouched so far, Brown’s favorability spread is a remarkable +32, at 57/25. For some perspective on how good those numbers are, Bob McDonnell was at a +20 spread with Virginia voters in our final poll there before going on to a 17 point victory.

Scott Brown has the potential to be the vote that stops the healthcare reform legislation in its tracks.  The Democrats, fearing a Brown win are already talking of not seating him until after the healthcare vote has been made.  They want their majority in tact so that the will of the people (over 57% of the population does NOT want this bill to pass) can be ignored and the democratic house and senate can ram this thing through. The democrats want to stall the swearing in of Scott Brown yet to get the Al Franken vote, a dem who would vote like they wanted him to, give them 60 votes they needed, they swore Franken in fast.  Minnesota’s resident clown, Al Franken, powered by Acorn’s fraudulent voter registrations, along with SEIU’s thuggery at the polls, was declared the winner on June 30th, 2009 after Norm Coleman conceded.

As soon as the Senate returned from their July 4th break, the dems immediately swore in Al Franken on July 7th, 2009 and were relieved to have the full majority vote.

Yeah, way to go ‘progressive’ (read socialist) liberal democrats.  Threaten to delay seating a republican winner, yet rush through seating the sexist, misogynist clown Franken from Minnesota who thinks rape is funny. 

Anyone see what I see?  The Democrats are not about the people, they are about the Democrats, power, control and transforming America into G_d knows what.  With the majority of America telling the democrats that we do NOT want their version of healthcare takeover, they proceed to do just the opposite, even to the point of interrupting the swearing in of an elected official who happens to be a republican, so that they can shove this healthcare bill up our collective whatevah.

Pay attention to who is now swarming the area, trying to help Martha Coakley, none other than the democratic thugs called MoveOn who are backed by socialist George Soros who in turn has a history of using his wealth to purchase political seats for the democratic party.

Senator Evan Bayh in Trouble in Indiana – Fundraisers Try to Save His Seat

While reading over at Hillbuzz I came across this article which tells of their associations in Chicago and the word is that the Dems are doing some serious fundraising knowing that Evan Bayh’s numbers in the polls have tanked. Evan Bayh is in some deep trouble in Indiana and the Dems are worried he may lose his seat.  You see, Chicago plays a role in Indiana politics, especially northwest Indiana, Lake County in particular with that deep money pit of a city called Gary being the recipient of a lot of Chicago/Democratic payola.

Mind you that Evan Bayh represents the entire state of Indiana, but the Chicago connection seeps into Indiana from the northern border. So for the thugs in Chicago to be campaigning and fundraising for an Indiana Senator is no big news.

According to Hillbuzz:

More on this later when we have time to tell you the whole story, but here in Chicago there’s a push going out from big donors we know from Hillary Clinton’s campaign.  Evan Bayh seems to be in a lot of trouble in Indiana.

All it took was one Democrat — JUST ONE — to tell Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and the White House that more time was needed for the public, let alone the Senators voting, to understand what was really in the Healthcare Rationing Bill before voting on it.

Evan Bayh had the chance to stand up, courageously, and tell Democrats they were operating in the dead of night, in secret, contrary to all their promises they would handle healthcare in the open following  the wishes of the people.

Bayh could have ground everything to a halt and FORCED Democrats to behave responsibly, sensibly, and in the manner they promised in 2008.

He didn’t.

That was his choice.

Though it pains us to side against Evan Bayh, we feel Evan Bayh sided against us in the Nightmare Before Christmas.

How much trouble do you think he’s really in in Indiana?  The talk we hear is that, as of the latest internal polls this week, he’s going to lose his seat.

Indiana Attorney General to review Constitutionality of Federal Health Care Overhaul Senate Bill

Finally, someone in Indiana is starting to act like a representative of the people and ask that the Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller take a look into the constitutionality of the healthcare bill. The GOPs are doing what they were hired to do and that is to protect the people of Indiana. Interesting that not a single democrat has stood up and demanded accountability from the federal government, demanding that all legislation, especially this push by the feds to control the entire population through this power grab called healthcare reform, be held up to the light and read for its constitutionality.

Every person elected to office has to swear on oath to uphold the constitution. No politician should have any problem with a review of any legislation to make sure that the federal government is not overstepping the limited powers granted to them by the people.

Pete Visclosky and Evan Bayh each voted FOR this federal takeover with Bayh voting ‘yes’ twice. Their pal Ben Nelson, the guy who got Nevada a sweet payoff deal in exchange for his yes vote on healthcare reform asked all of the AG’s to ‘call off the dogs

Meanwhile, you can add the Indiana’ s AG to the list that Ben Nelson originally complained about. You have the republican party to thank for growing a set and demanding that the federal government and the dems currently in control of America be held accountable for their proposed takeover of 1/6th of our economy via this healthcare legislation.

The entire article can be found here.

A snip is posted below.

WASHINGTON — At the request of some Indiana Republicans, Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller is reviewing the constitutionality of the health-care overhaul bill passed by the Senate last month.

Several Republican senators say the bill’s requirement that most people buy insurance or face a penalty violates the Constitution’s ban on taking private property for public purposes without just compensation.

Republicans also say a provision that could treat some insurance companies in Nebraska and Michigan differently violates the 14th Amendment’s equal-protection clause.

Republicans used those arguments to back procedural challenges to the Senate’s bill but were defeated in party-line votes before the Senate approved the bill on another party-line vote.

In a letter to Zoeller on Tuesday, Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., wrote that because votes on procedural challenges took place only five days after the bill’s final language was made public, there was not enough time to study the constitutional issues.

Indiana law allows the attorney general to make “any reasonable or appropriate investigation or study” of federal legislation when asked to do so by a member of the state’s congressional delegation.

“This little-known provision in state law was intended for a circumstance such as this, where proposed federal legislation could have a sweeping impact on state government,” Zoeller said.

Zoeller said he will look at other issues not specifically requested in Lugar’s letter, including a provision added by Democrats to gain the support of Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson. The federal government would pick up all of Nebraska’s share of the cost of a proposed expansion of Medicaid but pay only for most of the expansion in other states.

In that same article it says,

The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, a self-described progressive legal association, has written a brief arguing that the bill’s insurance mandate is constitutional because Congress has the authority to regulate commerce and set taxes.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Tuesday that he doesn’t think “that anybody has legitimate constitutional concerns about the legislation.”

When you read the word ‘progressive’ read ’socialist’. The socialist party took on the mantra of ‘progressive’ because it was a politically sexy word that hid who they are and covers up what they really want to do.

I say that there is no way the feds can hide behind the commerce clause in that this healthcare legislation demands and requires the people to purchase something, and that is it’s own right is unconstitutional. What is next? The feds own GM, and GM’s profits are falling, so the feds say ” From now until the end of 2011, the only cars available for your purchase will be GM cars.” ?
