[politics] Blue dogs

Heard on the radio today (no verbatim quote, unfortunately) that the Blue Dog Democrats — conservative Dems in the House — had negotiated hard to delay a vote on the healthcare reform bill until September, because it was too complex and far reaching to rush into, and that members of Congress and the public needed time to read and understand the proposed legislation.

So. Where were those conservative voices warning for careful deliberation and calling for a delayed vote when the Patriot Act was rushed into law? Blue Dogs? Republicans? Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?

    Do you know the real reason they want to delay the vote until after the break?

    The Republicans (Read: Health Insurance Stooges) are planning to spend over a million dollars on propaganda to attack a public option in 33 states. They don’t have a counter plan, they’re just doing it to satisfy their Industry masters and destroy Obama. They’re going to do this all August in the hopes that republicans and dems alike will come back after the break saying, “well.. My voters don’t want this after all. I guess I’ll vote ‘no,’ Sorry the poor and dying.”

    I pray Obama’s people are ready for August. It’s going to be awful.

    As our rights are infringed upon by our own government, Americans and those here legally will never benefit from a decent health care plan, owing to the abomination called ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. By an Act in United States Congress passed in 1986, Hospital and ambulance services must provide care to anyone needing emergency treatment in spite of citizenship, legal status or capacity to pay. The predicament being that 20 million plus illegal immigrant families are using this law, for even minor ailments such as the common cold. Why should foreign nationals sign up for health care or anything, when they can get Taxpayers to pay for it all..?
    But this is not just an American dilemma, as it has been forcibly imposed on subjects of the European Union. This is causing a major derailment in the EU, because both legal and illegal entrants are stealing away the single payer medical care providers, to the citizens who have paid into the system from the time they first started work.

    A decent controlled governmental health care benefit, can—NEVER–be established, when a startling report disclosed the details of a cloaked meeting between nationwide businesses and open-borders groups working under the radical cover of the IMMIGRATIONWORKSUSA a lobbying group. The secret Capitol Hill National Summit” took place last month and revealed the sinister intention behind the lobbying entities efforts.
    Tamar Jacoby, who runs ImmigrationWorksUSA, kicked off the conference by stating the true aspiration of the coalition. The basic target is to promote THE FREE FLOW OF LABOR INTO THE USA, with—AS ALWAYS– the taxpayer being the beneficiary for corporate welfare. They want expedited cheap labor, where no American worker—NEED APPLY!

    WE MUST ACT NOW, OR IT WILL BE TOO LATE! These special interest lobbyists are well furnished with money from corporate America. We must empower mandated E-Verify as part of the Save Act, where everybody is screened in the workplace. Call your lawmaker TODAY! at 202-224-3121 I Want a health care system–even government run. BUT IT”S SURE TO FAIL, IF TAXES ARE BEING EXTORTED TO PAY FOR FREE HEALTH CARE FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS?

    Millions of phone calls from angry Americans are jamming the Washington Switchboards. It is making these pandering politicians to corporate welfare, very anxious. Support for the bi-partisan E-VERIFY PART OF THE SAVE Act, which will expand E-Verify and protect American Workers! We must focus on the monolithic problem in terminating illegal immigrants-and the jobs that attract illegal aliens. WE WILL ALWAYS BE PAYING FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS, UNLESS WE DO SOMETHING NOW? Many GOP members are against a Path to citizenship for lawbreakers, so we mostly need the phones ringing in the ears of Democrats, who see the millions of illegal aliens as a positive voting block. WE MUST STOP IT NOW OF SUFFER FROM IRREVERSIBLE POPULATION GROWTH.
