"This Bill will reshape our nation and our lives."

Thank you for your tax-deductible financial support of Faith and Freedom.
__________________________

Calling the Obama health care bill a "monstrosity," Senator Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. said, "This is not renaming the post office. Make no mistake----this bill will reshape our nation and our lives."

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI. referred, on the floor, to those who do not support the bill as being influenced by, "The birthers, the fanatics, the people running around in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups."

He said they are desperate to break this president. You can connect the dots.

Senator Harry Reid says all those who do not support Obama's health care "reform" are on "the wrong side of history." John McCain and others promised to fight until "the very last vote."

So it would appear that Obama wins----America loses, even though a majority of Americans oppose his health care bill.

Syndicated columnist George Will has an interesting take on the matter. He said yesterday in his column, "Two Empty Triumphs: Copenhagen and Congress," that he thinks Obama loses in Copenhagen and in Congress, because both deals are hallow, even though he got a deal in Copenhagen and has now gotten a health bill through the Senate.

Will mentions the problems that the liberals in Congress and the President have said they want to fix and asks how does this bill solve those issues.

It doesn't. Not even the rising cost of health care. Will concludes saying, "They will need mental health care to cure their intellectual backlash."

Perhaps so, however, many of us are even more focused on the moral issues of life, than the political fall out.

The issue of life cuts deeply into the American culture, and in this way McConnell is right. This bill principally reshapes our nation and our lives. And the President knows it.

Yesterday afternoon, the President sent out an email thanking Harry Reid and all those who worked so hard to get the bill through the Senate----including his own organization, "Organizing America." He highlighted what he feels are the landmark aspects of the bill, concluding, "These are not small changes. These are big changes. They are fundamental reforms. They will save money. They will save lives."

Interesting.

Let's put the money aside for the moment. Whose lives will he save?

In the late 60's and early 70's "Values Clarification" was introduced into the nation's textbooks. One of the most memorable little story problems this study introduced was that of three people in a boat which could only sustain two people. Who should be thrown overboard? The process included personal value and productivity.

It does not appear "sanctity of life" is a priority for this President. While the President and his colleagues have repeatedly promised no taxpayer money for abortion, their bill does in fact pay for abortion.

With his $500 billion or so cut to medicare expenses, it would seem that the elderly, most often the least productive adults and most in need of medical assistance are also not a priority.

Senator Maria Cantwell, in support of this bill that expands the killing of unwanted, unborn children and reduces medical assistance to the less productive elderly when they need it most, told KOMO 1000 News yesterday morning that this health care bill will be very helpful to the state budget.

This bill further defines a culture that is moving more and more toward a culture of death, than a culture of life.

Abortion. Euthanasia.

God help us.

    Hee hee! I can still hear Steve Taylor: "Yes, Mrs. Aryan!"

  2. Liberals believe in a "Living Constitution". I believe in the written constitution. The two are very different.

    Any doctor who is forced to render services against his will is forced into involuntary servitude.

    Any person who is forced to pay another's health care bill is in involuntary servitude.

    The government has no authority to force people to buy insurance.

    Slave owners make a cost value analysis before paying for medical treatment for their slaves. The health care bills in congress do the same thing.

    If insurance denies payment you can still get the treatment if you have the money or can raise it. Many times doctors and hospitals will deeply discount and waive their charges. You can also appeal the decision of the insurance company or sue the insurance company.

    If the government health care system denies you treatment, you can't have it, ever! You're DEAD.

    Social Security is $70 trillion in debt.
    Medicare is $30 trillion in dept.

    The first rule of holes: When you find yourself in one, stop digging.

    People are unemployed and hurting.
    Congress and Obama are making it worse with their policies, and they are increasing the burden on all of us with cap and trade and Obama Care.

    Frankly, they don't care.

    All legitimate governments govern with the consent of the governed. Nearly 60% don't give their consent.

    Would somebody please take Obama's shovel away?

  3. Thank you, Gary, for writing about this watershed bill. It is tragic that those is power are so committed to destroying innocent human life and the whole structure of our society. May God have mercy on us. May God help us to educate the next generation to chose life and promote the values that made our county great.

  4. Quite weird when all is said and done how the left contradicts itself.

    They tell people when they can use their woodstoves, what property can a home be built on , what a parent can know about their child , what people can do and can not do based on contradictory science and beliefs, even to the point where they get into our bedrooms by making us all to pay for what some consider a oops , despite those who see it as a life, then when all is done , they claim people of Faith are the ones forcing their beliefs on us ?

    Go figure, smaller government means your forcing your belief if only you think you are ENTITLED to something for just being alive.

    And she calls herself a Roman Catholic? When is the Church going to crack down on these desidents? All life is sacred as we are created in the image of God.

    I agree, but bishops are usually wary of calling out political figures. I'd like to see more bishops do as Vasa (Baker City) and Chaput (Denver) are doing. Given that some of these politicians got elected partly because of their church membership, I'd love to see the bishops make them put up or shut up.

    However, I can understand their reluctance, considering that involvement in temporal politics helped cost the Church half of Europe on the 16th century. Pressure on rank-and-file members to adhere to Church teaching has a longer-term effect.

  7. In the early 90's when Hillary care was being pushed at us I was in healthcare, and marched on Washington in protest. I predicted that healthcare had ridden the crest of the wave long enough, and the end of large profits was near. Well now we are facing the retirement of nearly 50% of our doctors due to this healthcare bill which would pay them a pittance, on top of an already existing doctor shortage. That coupled with adding another 30 million patients to the ranks commands there must be rationing, and low quality of care for those fortunate enougn to see a doctor. Those who flood the ER's for a sniffle will continue to do so, in order to stay under the radar. Healthcare as written by the controlling party in Washington, DC will destroy the best healthcare system in the world, and bring in massive tax revinue to an already out of control government, that's what it's all about, this bill has nothing to do with health or care.
