Obama Threatening to Pass Anti-gun Health Care by Cheating

Thursday, February 25, 2010

He’s like a playground bully — on steroids!

According to a recent poll, only 23% of the American people want Congress to pass the anti-gun ObamaCare bill.

And the President’s response to this? He believes Americans are just too stupid to understand what geniuses like him, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid are trying to do for us.

So what is Obama’s current plan?

Cheat.

ObamaCare is already the product of fraud, secrecy, bribery, and corruption. But Obama is preparing to ratchet up this corruption to a whole new level.

In 1974, Congress created a special process for balancing the budget. Senators could reduce the deficit with a simple 51 votes in the Senate, rather than getting the 60 needed votes to stop a filibuster. Under the rules, this process — called “reconciliation” — can ONLY be used for balancing the budget.

To repeat, it cannot be used for anything other than reducing the deficit. By contrast, ObamaCare would INCREASE the deficit by at least $500 BILLION.

So what does Obama do (with the help of crooked accountants at the Congressional Budget Office)?

He lies.

He fraudulently pretends the anti-gun ObamaCare legislation would reduce the deficit. And he does this by hiding costs and pretending he’s going to make cuts he never intends to fully implement ($465 billion in Medicare cuts).

And he intends to use this fraud scheme to cram ObamaCare down the throats of the American people against their will.

Americans don’t want the increased taxes and gun control that have been injected into the bill. Remember, Majority Leader Harry Reid tried to claim his legislation fixed the problems that Gun Owners of America had with this legislation.

But in reality, the bill still allows the ATF to troll a health/gun database in order to take away firearms from tens of millions of Americans.

ACTION: Please contact your two senators and your representative. Tell them that using the budget-balancing “reconciliation” process to pass ObamaCare is nothing but cheating.

You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center to send a pre-written message to your legislators.

So what does Obama do (with the help of crooked congressional accountants at the Congressional Budget Office)? He lies. He fraudulently pretends ObamaCare would reduce the deficit. And he does this by hiding costs (the $247 billion “doc fix”) and pretending he’s going to make cuts he never intends to fully implement ($465 billion in Medicare cuts).

This “reconciliation” scheme is nothing more than a fraud on the American people, who, according to every recent poll, oppose ObamaCare by overwhelming majorities.

Understand this: I strongly object to this “cheat scheme.”

Majority Leader Harry Reid has tried to claim his legislation fixed the anti-gun problems in ObamaCare. But in reality, it will still allow the ATF to troll a health/gun database in order to take away firearms from tens of millions of Americans.

Please oppose the use of “reconciliation” to pass ObamaCare.

    I plan on doing ALL of the above today. I am weaning myself from political blogging for professional reasons, but this one can’t be ignored. I am so sick of the “Chicago Criminal Politics” and games I could scream!!!

    They are taking everything and perverting it into Alinsky tactics and I for one can’t stand seeing this crap happen! How many young men have died on the battle field, to protect every part of our Constitution since the beginning??? And this half-wit and his criminals dare to try to circumvent the will of the people????

    I wasn’t aware of the anti-gun provisions in this bill. I suspect there is much more hidden in the thousands of pages that will slowly surface if the damn thing is passed by what I consider to be an illegal back door method. I watched the so-called summit today noticed that Obama called everyone by their first name while they were more or less obligated to use his title. To me this was disgusting! The arrogant bastard also had to remind us again that he is president. Yep, he is president in name only —oops, I forgot we are not really sure of his name.

    I twitted a link to your post on all three of my twitter pages. Taken together I have about 5500 followers. So a few will read and just maybe take note.

    Ron, don’t be surprised if they slide Amnesty in it too. They have piggybacked that one a half a dozen times trying to sneak it in. These jerks are so sneaking they put criminals to shame!

    Sending a pre-typed letter to my state Senators!?!? Hell, why not that’s all I ever get back from them when I type my own letter to them.

    I was unaware of the gun control end of this bill. Not that it matters I still hate it. I’m sure Dr.O and all the other WashingTARDS wanted to keep this quiet.

    Good job TF
