Ahhhhh, it's Wednesday, middle of the week, another opportunity to see the latest outrages from our elected officials, in response to the public outcry from their constituents' expressing their feelings. Americans have finally come to the realization that their Representatives (and Senators) in Washington (District of Corruption) DC, have been perpetuating fraud on we, da-masses, for many years.
Sen Dodd, got a sweetheart deal on his mortgage(he DID get a hand-slap from the Senate ethics committee); Sen Rangel got no oversight on his taxes, he is in charge of Senate Tax committee, and claims he didn't know the rules on the taxes required to be paid on his off-shore property. Kinda like Rep Conyers, not having the time, aka, inclination?, to read the HealthCare bill, and if his 2 lawyers read the bill, they couldn't explain it to him anyway, "so why read it?'.
Of Course, Rep Waxman (he CHAIRS one of the Sub Committees that passed part of this HR3200, atrocity), said there is no way, they, the Congress, will have to join this HealthCare program, because the option is there to go with any Sector program. If you created it, sir, shouldn't you be required to be a participant? After all, your Bill DOES include fining companies, and individuals, who won't join it, within a predetermined time period.
Did you see the one Legislator say that abortion funding is not in the bill? Did you know that if there is no mention in the bill, excluding or limiting it, that the assumption, (is this a joke?) is that there won't be any limits to the procedure? Please someone out there prove me wrong!! Any Takers?
**My Favorite Section, and how our beloved Legislators address it is:
SECTION 441, PAGE 203, LINES 14-15 "The tax imposed under this section shall NOT be treated as a tax". HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU HEARD THERE IS NO TAX INCREASES IN THIS. NO TAXES BECAUSE IT ISN'T REFERRED TO AS A TAX, WHAT IS IT???????HELLO???
What Have We Done? Lady Justice is blind, so are we...
As we learn more about the Bill, shouldn't we care, at least to the same extent, that we care about our favorite Pro or College Football team?, shouldn't we be more passionate about what we have learned? Shouldn't be at least as boisterous, without being labelled, 'Artificial Turf', or 'a MOB' by our elected Representatives in Washington? as we are for our favorite "TEAM"? Shouldn't we be HEARD, and responded to,honestly, and compassionately? Doesn't this apply to locally,state, and local government, as well?
I sent a letter off to Charlie Crist, Governor of Florida regarding the resignation of Mel Martinez, the quiet Republican quitter (who stayed in long enough to vote for his Latina Comrade Sottomayor, I'm sure this time-frame had nothing to do with him being Latino), from the US Senate, and how we need some short-term fill-in with a BIG MOUTH to fill the remaining term. Get This, I got a FORM-LETTER response about how Gov Crist is a supporter of the Stimulus package, a form letter, not a word about what the subject line was, or about the Senator who quit. Man, the problem permeates every aspect of our Government, Local, State, and Federal. It really is time for a changing of the "old-guard', and the old way of governing.
I DID WRITE BACK TELLING HIM THAT IF CAN'T AT LEAST BE ON SUBJECT, THERE IS NO WAY HE WILL GET MY VOTE WHEN HE RUNS FOR THE SENATE, AND THAT HE DOESN'T DESERVE A PROMOTION.
When does America wake up? Start to REIGN on Their Parade.
