Obama and Dems still vow to shove ObamaCare down our throats

On a Saturday post-election rolled-up-shirtsleeves-campaign visit to Grand Junction, CO, Obama floated ObamaCare's government-owned and run so-called public option program as not necessarily being mandatory when he stated that it is "not going to solve every problem" and that it "is not the entirety of health care reform." Then, on Sunday Obama's Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius apparently following her boss' lead said on CNN that ObamaCare's public option is "not the essential element." But now Obama, as is his pattern and penchant, has switched back yet again and has called Sebelius' comments "misspeaks." And today, Tuesday, Sebelius gave one of the many "media misconception" speeches for which this Administration has now become famous or infamous. Note: Another Obama "Misspeaker" thrown under the bus. I wonder if all of these already have their own collective ObamaCare; by now there must be enough of them.

With respect to Obama's latest backpedaling (aka lying) he does this so often it's almost impossible to keep up with them all it appears that the Leftist Democrat Congress never had any intention of going along with it. Nancy Pelosi aka Queen of the Leftists and some say the real head of the Democrat Party had already thrown down her gauntlet when she said "There is strong support in the House for a public option. In the House, all three of our bills contain a public option, as does the bill from the Senate [Health] Committee. A public option is the best option to lower costs, improve the quality of health care, ensure choice and expand coverage. The public option brings real reform to lower costs over the 10-year period of the bill." Note: The fact that the CBO has shown this "lower Cost" statement to be completely false and has countered with the factual documentation to show that it will raise costs into the Trillions doesn't matter to the ruling leftist elite. If it will allow Obama and the Left to completely control us, that's what's important. Remember, ObamaCare is NOT about healthcare. In fact, much of Pelosi's HR 3200 is not about healthcare at all. Instead, it's about totalitarianism and absolute dominion over We-the-People. In other words, as Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and other tyrants have attempted, Obama and the Left plan to replace God.

To add insult to injury, some of our leftist lawmakers are no longer bothering to deny their plans to subjugate and therefore render powerless the American people. Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY) said recently: "I will vote adamantly against the interests and opinions of my district if I actually think what I'm doing will be helpful. I will vote against their opinion if I actually believe it will help them." Translation: "I don't care what the people of my constituencies want. I don't care about what will actually be in their interest. Their interests mean nothing to me. It's MY INTERESTS that count!"

Then, former Vermont Governor and DNC Chairman Howard Dean said on Uber-Leftist Keith Doberman's program Monday that the public option which is now hated by a growing number of citizens is in "a much better place than you [or we?] think!"

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House will pass no bill that does not include the public (government-run) option. Note: ObamaCare is not and never has been an option. If this draconian bill is passed it is planned to destroy any and all private insurance. Then, the people of the USA will be entirely at the mercy of its tyrannical government and its ruling elite.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has repeatedly threatened to shove this bill down the throats of the American people by doing away with Senate rules requiring a 60 vote majority and abusing the process of Reconciliation.

This is not the time to stop our protests, folks. Again, please keep attending Town Hall meetings and informing your Congress people as to what is really contained in Pelosi's anti-human bill; cite page numbers. Increasingly, it appears that We-the-People are no longer necessary to our elected officials as both the Executive and Legislative Branches of government seize more and more of our power. With the ObamaThug attacks growing, it almost seems as if they want us to become violent doesn't it? One thing, however, is certain many if not most of our elected reps are neither serving nor representing the American people. Pelosi's ObamaCare is extraordinarily Orwellian and needs to be dumped and shredded in its entirety.
