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

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."


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.
