Lugar, Donnelly, Visclosky vote in favor of Socialized Medicine against the People’s Wishes

The American people did not want the Health Care reform bill weeks ago when it was being voted on in Pelosi’s House and they did not want it in Reid’s Senate but the rat basturds voted it through regardless of the people’s wishes.

What does this say for our non-representatives? It says that special interest groups, lobbyists, big business have more clout than the people the representatives are supposed to serve.

Oh You Democrats, Don't Be an Ass

Oh You Democrats, Don't Be an Ass


Pete Visclosky and Joe Donnelly voted yes in the House, Bayh voted yes in the Senate. When Lugar’s office was asked, directly, in person if the NO stack was larger than the YES stack, according to the letters, calls and emails that he received, his minion refused to answer. They do not want us to know that more people in Indiana told him to vote NO and that the majority of people were against this healthcare boondoggle. He has and had no intentions of voting according to the wishes of the people he serves. His vote, along with Vislocky and Donnnelly were based upon calculations of how to swing votes for re-election. They need the unions, ACORN and SEIU, the AFL-CIO to pull votes for them, so it doesn’t matter what the people of Indiana want.

Here are the polls indicating, for all intents and purposes, the way they should have voted and that vote should have been a big fat NO.

Poll: Support for health care plan plummets, Senate Democrats push ahead

A day after the Senate begins debate on health care legislation a new survey from Rasmussen Reports shows the highest level of opposition yet recorded. In a staggering reversal from last week the poll suggests just 38% of American voters now favor the Democratic health care plan against 56% who are opposed. The previous poll taken on November 13-14 showed support had grown to its highest level since mid-September with 47% of voters in favor against 49% in opposition. (Read the rest of the article here.)


Got that? 49% of the people told them to vote NO. Only 47% wanted them to vote yes, as of Nov. 14th.
As of Nov. 22 56% told them to vote NO and only 38% wanted them to vote yes.

Read the Rasmussen Reports here and see for yourself that the American people do not want this push by Obama to control 1/6 of our economy and bring a government employee into our doctor’s office and our homes. There is something very wrong with what they are trying to do in Congress and people are beginning to wake up. Something is very wrong when so many people are telling our hired help (Lugar, Donnelly and Visclosky) to shove this thing where the sun don’t shine and they adopt a cavalier, pompous and condescending attitude and vote Yes anyway. Plus there is something wrong with a Louisiana Senator being paid off to the tune of 300 million dollars to place a ‘yes’ vote for this legislation. What other kind of deals were cut? How much did Lugar, Donnelly, Visclosky and Bayh get to vote yes?

How many more examples does a person require before they realize that politics, as we have it toady, is dirty and that our non-representatives do NOT act upon the best interests of the people, but act upon their own best interest.

Vote them OUT. Contact a Tea Party, a Patriot group, ANY group that places principle before party. We must act in whatever way we can be that calling, writing, emailing, visiting their local offices, protesting,  whatever we are able to do in order to get them to pay attention and let them know that we are watching them, we are taking notes and come 2010 they will face an election period like none other.

Do not expect the Republicans to help you as they are not much different than the Democrats in placing Party before Principle. Find a candidate that resonates with your goals and desires, find a person who place Principle before Party and believes in the Constitution.

Visclosky & Donnelly voted yes to approve H R 3221 Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2009.

Rep. Peter Visclosky [D, IN-1] and Rep. Joe Donnelly [D, IN-2] voted yes to approve H R 3221 Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2009.

In summary, this bill slid under the radar while Healthcare was being battled. In effect, what this bill does is remove private lending options for students seeking to get loans for college. The government will be in control of educational lending, adding layers and layers of bureaucracy and providing the government with a reserve of indentured servants.  See, these college kids can get out of repaying their loans if they agree to work for the government for ten years.

Representative Michele Bachmann (MN-6) has a post on her blog that can be found HERE. It is well worth the time to read her take on this bill including the Increased Cost of the program.

Summary: This bill eliminates the Federal Family Education Loan program and shifts all student loans to a government-run and taxpayer financed system under the Direct Loan program, as well as creates nine new programs and increases the federal government takeover of early education, higher education, school construction, and more.

Concerns: As proposed in President Obama’s FY 2010 budget, H.R. 3221 eliminates the FFEL student loan program that has been the overwhelming choice of students and families for more than 40 years, replacing it with a government-run program.  While Democrats continue to use government takeovers as a panacea to all economic problems, converting all student loans to government subsidized loans is just another way that Democrats are killing jobs, increasing government intrusion, and eroding the rights of the consumer.

This bill greatly increases the role of Federal Government in higher education. H.R. 3221 will federalize all student financial aid. The U.S. Department of Education will be tasked with administering and supporting all student loans, which will greatly increase the federal government’s role and power in education.

While we were fighting nationalized healthcare and Cap & Trade they moved quickly to nationalize education and you didn’t even see it coming.  Pete Visclosky and Joe Donnelly did this to us and never even bothered to tell us.

Additionally, H.R. 3221 includes Title IV (Section 401) which creates an “early learning challenge fund.” This early learning challenge fund would allow the federal government to provide grants to the states to support state efforts to increase early education programs from birth to age 5.

What is the Federal Government doing controlling access to college and universities? What is the Federal Government doing ‘granting’ States funds for educational programs for that state’s children from birth to 5 years of age.  Does anyone think that grants come without strings and mandates? Why is our state of Indiana not pushing back, demanding a reduction or elimination of the Federal tax, keeping the money in the state so that they are not begging for some of it back from the Feds? The current administration will be further dictating what must be taught in schools, what your child must learn and can anyone just take a trip down fantasy lane and envision how the most malleable of brains will be receiving this administration’s messages.

There is no language in the bill to clarify that the state’s early education programs funded through the federal grants must be voluntary. As a result, there is the danger that states may try to pass legislation which would create mandatory early education programs, using the grants from the federal government to help fund the program.

You may have thought Obama’s ‘original’ plan to address the schoold children with the message of servitude to Obama was bad, before he changed it due to public outcry, but now this bill gives him and his ilk full access to not only control a child’s learning from birth, but to control access to funds for higher education, determine what is taught in all levels of education and attach Federal government strings to every educational institution in the USA.

Our next step has to be addressing our representatives in the Senate. Call, write, email and fax them and let them know where you stand on H.R. 3221. We have to get on this before Obama can get his hands on it.
