Trust the government
Human Events
by Newt Gingrich

“How much is one additional year of your life worth? Or one more year of life for your father or your wife? For your child? In Great Britain, the government has settled on a number: $45,000. That’s how much a government commission with the Orwellian acronym NICE has decided British government-run health care will pay for one additional year of life for a British subject. Think it could never happen here? Then you need to pay closer attention to what Washington is planning for your health care.” (08/12/09)

Senate Democratic leadership will pass health care reform “by any legislative means necessary”

ABC News

“Amidst questions of whether or not any Senate Republicans will support a health care reform bill, Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., today said that the ‘White House and the Senate Democratic leadership still prefer a bipartisan bill.’ The Reid spokesman said that ‘neither the White House nor the leadership have made a decision to pursue reconciliation,’ the somewhat controversial legislative process by which a bill is introduced in such a manner so that it requires merely 50 votes instead of 60 to proceed to a vote, thus removing the threat of filibuster.” (08/19/09)

No, if I was the R’s, then I’d force them to bring Teddie and KKK-er Byrd in a force the end of a filibuster. Make it clear that “over dead bodies” does anything pass.

Time to stand up and be counted.
