Why is it that Americans overwhelmingly now believe that the federal government is a threat to citizens’ rights???
Washington (CNN) — A majority of Americans think the federal government poses a threat to the rights of Americans, according to a new national poll.
Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say they think the federal government has become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens. Forty-four percent of those polled disagree.
If ObamaCare is so wonderful and so popular as the Democrats claim, then why is it that the most Democrat state in the nation voted for a Republican who promised to be the 41st vote blocking the ObamaCare boondoggle, and why is it that nearly 70% of the states are trying to protect themselves from it’s abuses of citizens’ rights?
Va OKs 1st bill banning mandated health coverage
By BOB LEWIS (AP)
RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia’s General Assembly is the first in the nation to approve legislation that bucks any attempt by President Barack Obama and Congress to implement the national health care overhaul in states like Virginia.
Without debate, the House of Delegates voted 80-17 Wednesday to accept Senate amendments to a bill that supporters say preserves Virginia’s prerogatives as a state.
Thirty-four other legislatures have filed or proposed similar measures rejecting health insurance mandates.
But Virginia’s legislature, scheduled to adjourn Saturday, is the first to finish work on a bill. The measure goes to Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell, who plans to sign it.
The measures are advancing nationally as Republicans capitalize on voter discontent over Democratic-backed federal health care reform efforts in Congress.
The Democrats are going to make it a federal crime to live and breathe without buying their health insurance, like mobsters who break your windows and destroy your store if you don’t buy their “insurance.”
It is amazing. Democrats in Congress and the Obama White House have spent a full year trying to push a massively expensive bill that will destroy our health care system even as states feverishly work to protect themselves from that very same ObamaCare.
States realize that the accounting gimmicks that deceitfully produce a “deficit neutral” bill end up creating the mother of all unfunded mandates for the states to pay. That means vastly higher state taxes and fees for you.
There’s also a fair chance that you may lose the insurance plan you have as you are shoved into the inferior care provided by Medicaid. ObamaCare promises to “nudge” approximately one in five Americans who presently aren’t in the Medicaid system into that system (see also here).
For the record, Medicaid is the system for individuals and families with low income and resources. It is not the best quality care, and it is certainly not the care that the Congress that is forcing this monstrosity down our throats will have. Republicans offered 11 amendments that would have required Congress to enroll themselves and their families in the plan they were trying to force on everyone else. The Democrats voted every single one of them down.
Democrat politicians believe they’re better than everyone else. Their children are better than your children. Their attitude toward you as regards ObamaCare is “Let them eat dirt.”
Their families are going to continue to get the very best of care, while you and your family find yourselves getting shoved into a health care system designed for the poorest Americans.
The Democrats are playing every imaginable game with the Constitution and the political process to shove this 2,700 page boondoggle down the country’s collective throat. It looks like the only thing that will protect Americans from the worst White House and Congress in our national history will be the states.
