          According to InsureBlog** HR525 is explained as follows:

“And what, you may ask, does this have to do with ObamaCare©?  Glad you asked.

It seems that, when they were “passing the bill so that they (and we) could see what’s in it,” they inadvertently forgot to include funding to increase the “Public Health Workforce Loan Repayment Program” (aka Title V of Section 5204) of ObamaCare©.”

And of course the AVMA (American Veternarian Medical Association)  lauds it like this:

“HR 525 will help expand the veterinary public health workforce by offering veterinary school loan repayment for veterinarians who commit to serve in a federal, state, local, or tribal public health agency or who engage in a related training fellowship. ..” (emphasis mine)

So there you have it folks, more tax dollars going to more people, as long as they agree to serve…… your big. bloated government, which just happens to be teetering on the brink of bankruptcy.  Just how would that be considered to be cutting back on big government, as our GOP leaders promised us when asking for the people’s trust once again in the 2010 elections ?
 

          Doesn’t that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside to see that while the RINOS and Globalists in Congress have voted to expand Obamacare funding and create another big government expansion, while going on TV every day and stating that they want to defund it?  Call them up and give every one of them hell for being liars!

Meet the Intellect in Charge of America’s Healthcare

       I really wasn’t in much of a mood to write today, but Obamacare Chief Katherine Sebelius cried out to me for another 15 minutes of fame, so here we are. Once again an incident showing how incompetent and ridiculous certain Obama appointees can be is being downplayed by the MSM.  When they did show the following video it wasn’t shown in full context, but thanks to the internet and social media nothing slips by the people today. Here is the whole video  from Eyeblast.tv:  http://www.eyeblast.tv/public/video.aspx?v=hdqGnznzqG   Unbelievable!  Here is the text of why Obamacare is Constitutional, right from Health and Human Services Secretary Katherine Sebelius:

Sebelius: “Well, I think that the…I…let me begin by saying I’m not a lawyer. And I’m leaving those arguments to our legal team from the department of justice. But I think there are certainly lots of talented Constitutional lawyers who feel that the Commerce Clause very much is broad enough to cover the interstate commerce of healthcare and that we have a unique product because people access services of healthcare whether or not they have insurance. What they’re choosing not to do is actually pay for those services. So it isn’t like if I don’t have a 27-inch TV for the Super Bowl I can’t demand that they have the Super Bowl that somebody deliver that TV because I have a right to it. On the other hand, if I don’t have insurance and I come to the door of an emergency room I get treated and get cared for and somebody else picks up that tab. And I think it’s that framework for a layperson that the two judges who have ruled who find that this law is constitutional found to be well within scope of the commerce clause.” (emphasis mine)

     What I also find amazing here, is that Mr. Obama has appointed someone who isn’t a faux lawyer, as Sebelius deemed important enough to lead off with in her statement, while trying to sell Americans the Obamacare Socialized medicine once again. Call me dense, but I still can’t bring myself to equate the government takeover of 1/6th of the US economy to buying a TV,  let alone it’s Constitutionality.

        Here is another tidbit about about this genius that is now in charge of American healthcare: She was once the Governor of Kansas for 6 years. So much for informed voters once again.  Her father, John J. Gilligan also made his living in politics as the Governor of Ohio. Ms. Sebelius served 8 years in the Kansas leglislature and another 8 years as the Kansas Insurance Commissioner. With a degree in “Public Administration,” Ms. Sebelius somehow wound up serving as The Executive Director and Chief Lobbyist for The Kansas Trial lawyers Association. Once again an Obama appointee is another fluffy lobbyist at her roots. Every cent this career politician has made has come from the U S taxpayer one way or the other. Today she is also effectively in charge of  America’s Socialized Medicine being sold as Healthcare Reform, which is 1/6th of the entire U S economy. Take another look at the above transcript of this genius explaining to us why Obamacare is Constitutional today. That statement completely sums up Obamacare perfectly. They have no clue what they have done here, nor do they care about the disastrous effects their vaunted Socialized medicine will have on the best healthcare system in the world.

Activist Judges: A Closer look.

    Last week, when  Florida’s Judge Vinson shredded President Obama’s vaunted Socialized Medicine Healthcare Law, he was called an “Activist Judge.”  The Obama administration was caught in a shell game when they originally campaigned to create Obamacare, as it is widely known. They called the mandated fees for Obamacare taxes at one point, and later on argued that it wasn’t a tax. Tax or no tax, fees or mandated charges, you cannot, and never will be allowed to force the American people to buy a service or product, especially one cooked up by Rule of law/Constitution- ignoring Liberals. At the root of it all is the Unconstitutionality of  forcing Americans to purchase any product, whether it be the favored Che and Mao t-shirts the radical leftists are so proud to wear, or Healthcare insurance. Judge Vinson did his homework, before this ruling and did it well. He  did not take this responsibility lightly as he stated after his ruling that said the individual mandate in Obamacare is illegal , and since that becomes null and void, the whole Socialized Medicine house of cards comes tumbling down with it. Here is his Judge Vinson’s statement:

““Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void. This has been a difficult decision to reach, and I am aware that it will have indeterminable implications,” Vinson writes.

   As many expected this will go to the Supreme Court of the United States to be decided. Judge Vinson made a very calculated and clear ruling on forcing Americans to buy Government run healthcare insurance: It is against The Rule of Law. While Judge Vinson has a very long  history of fair and just interpretations of U.S  laws and our Constitutional rights and protections, parts of our society, and even our very own President came out and labeled this honorable protector of  all Americans and our freedoms as a “Political Activist Judge.”  That tactic is right out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals,” the companion booklet of  “The Communist Manifesto,” which teaches radicals how to overthrow a government to insert Socialism/Communism. Labeling Judge Vinson an Activist Judge right away to further promote Obamacare and Socialism in  America falls right under rule 13* from Mr. Alinsky:

“13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.  In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’…

     “…any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’ When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments…. Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target…’
     “One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.” (pps.127-134)”

 

  So there we see the true reason Liberal Democrats, agenda-serving Leftits Media puppets, and even our very own President Barack Hussein Obama deemed it important to label this honorable Judge Vinson as some kind of extreme activist unworthy of the bench. Herr Goebbels, the Propaganda Minister of another era would be proud of this tactic. I find it disgusting and a serious offense to America and The Rule of law. Judge Vinson has no history of Judicial activism what-so-ever ! 

When looking for actual Activist Judges today, we need to look no further than the very controversial and radical 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court just slapped down five of their misguided, illegal, radical activist-laden rulings in a row recently. As reported in an article over at FoxNews.com,** we see actual proof of Judicial activism:

“The Supreme Court may be sending a message to one of the country’s most liberal appeals courts, unanimously overturning five consecutive cases out of the 9th Circuit in less than a week”

“That’s an indication this court is way out of the mainstream,” said Kent Scheidegger, legal director for the California-based Criminal Justice Legal Foundation. “They’re getting impatient with them. They just keep coming back with this stuff.” 

In a Jan. 19 reversal, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote that the 9th Circuit committed a “clear error” by overturning the murder conviction in the case of a Sacramento man. The Supreme Court accused the circuit of having “failed to accord the required deference” to the state court’s decision — in other words, the 9th Circuit horned in on the state’s business when it shouldn’t have.  Kennedy accused the circuit of demonstrating “judicial disregard” for “sound and established principles.” (emphasis mine)

  With this very important information showing the activist Judges within the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals malfeasance, people should be asking why our President and Liberal Democrats refuse to label  them as Judicial Activists ? Oh, wait, could that be because they support their Liberal agenda? As Sarah Palin would say: “You betcha! ”  How about the so-called Mainstream Media here ? If the MSM doesn’t want Americans calling them leftist puppets, why do they refuse to call out the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ? The following networks need to answer that question: MSNBC, CNN , CBS, ABC, NBC. I won’t hold my breath waiting for that answer, but until I get one, the before-mentioned groups willl be referred to as Liberal Puppets, Obama-sheep, and all around  dangerous propagandists lacking any form of unbiased Journalistic integrity they show themselves to be today! Clear enough ? Lay off of Honorable American Judges like Roger Vinson and do some real reporting on the true “Activist Judges” in America today.  As far as President Obama and his leftist propaganda minions trying to label Judge Vinson as an activist with exactly zero basis for it, save your breath, as we no longer believe you any more than we desire your Socialized medicine that you are trying to force upon us using the Alinsky tactics mentioned above.

      In 2012, lets remember that every Democratic Senator just voted against the stated demands of the American people that Obamacare be repealed. If that doesn’t tell people who needs to be fired for ignoring the true wishes of the people, I don’t know what does ! That isn’t the actions of true representatives of the people, that is the action of self-serving Tyrants. Remember them in 2012.

Senate Heavyweights Set To Square Off Over H/C Repeal

                                   Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY)  vs.  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

      Two weeks ago we saw the US House of Representatives pass a bi-partisan Repeal of Obamacare, as per the demands of the voting public in the 2010 mid-term elections. Immediately the spin began on how the repeal of the new H/C law would never pass the US Senate, from the Whitehouse, to Harry Reid, to the mainstream media, we were told this is a waste of time. Since when is respecting the wishes of the people not a part of  Democracy in America? As more facts come out about Obamacare we see more people demanding the repeal of  The President’s vaunted Socialized Medicine. We see a total of 733 waivers being signed because this bill will hurt businesses and assorted groups of healthcare providers. I explained this in an earlier article here at CDN.*

  Well today we  shall see exactly which Senators respect the people’s wishes, and want to keep their jobs in 2012, and which ones need to be fired for being self-serving Tyrants against the people they were elected to serve. This will be done today, by Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans forcing the repeal vote by adding it to the FAA reauthorization Bill. A total of 26 Democratic Senators are up for reelection in 2012. Anyone who thinks they aren’t looking over their shoulder and thinking about keeping their jobs in 2012 when this vote hits the floor is in for a serious reality check.  The people have spoken and it’s about time they are listened to on this boondoogle that would allow a government takeover of 1/6th of the U S economy, not to mention the destruction of the best healthcare system in the world. The writing is on the wall and Mr. McConnell explained it nicely in an article over at The Hill: **

“In a statement, McConnell said the repeal vote gives Democrats a chance to “reevaluate” their support for the controversial healthcare law, which a federal judge in Florida struck down as unconstitutional on Monday.” 

“For all those who supported the health law, it’s an opportunity to re-evaluate your vote. To listen to your constituents who are desperately trying to get your attention. You can say, ‘Perhaps this was a mistake. We can do this better.’ Or you can continue to dismiss the majority of the people in this country as not knowing what they’re talking about.”

Thank you Mr. McConnell, I couldn’t have said it any better. Here is another simple observation for the media pundits and propagandists who say Obama will just veto this bill if it hits his desk. Go ahead Mr. President, pull out that Leftist Veto Pen against the American people, as you too are up for reelection in 2012.
