The Left, the Right and the American Public Couldn’t Stop 60 Votes

RS RedState

by Dan Perrin

The question of whether we live in a country ruled by leaders who refuse to listen, but do what they believe is in their own interest, has been answered.

Conservatives hate this bill. Progressives and liberals hate it too. The public is solidly against it.

But it does not matter, apparently. The implications of a country in open revolt against this bill and the elite in the Democratic party giving the public the finger are profound.

The Daily Kos and FireDogLakes of the net could not produce a single Democratic Senator or Independent to vote no. Conservatives could not produce a single Democratic Senate vote against cloture. Neither could the general public. Perhaps the left can still get one of their own to kill this nightmare. Is there not a single Dem Senator who will stand with the public, or is this merely a quaint notion we used to have about our country — that the system responds to the public?

The Democrats must have 60 votes to amend this bill, then 60 votes to defeat the filibuster. They say they have them — we will see.

Senator Nelson, according to a senior Senate staffer, got a huge appropriation for Nebraska — and a state opt-out for abortion funding, as in states can opt-out. Another Democratic Senator bought off with money we are printing to pay our bills.

The world will understand America has changed. Our country is now run by elites who are printing money, debasing our currency to throw at massive new spending and deficit creating programs — and actually believe they are both moral and politically smart. Just 19% of the public believes this plan will not increase the deficit.

What comes next is very discomforting to think about. But we have now crossed that line from what our country was into something else, and that something else has nothing whatsoever with the country being a Republic. There will be a reckoning for this, and it will not be pleasant — not for anyone

Great article write up by Dan Perrin, the last paragraph speaks loud and clear.

And Ray Stevens song goes perfect with this as well.

Senator Bennet from Colorado says he will vote for the Health Care Bill even if it costs him reelection. What this clown is really saying is he could care less what his constituents say, he's going to vote his political party.

We'd have a say in it too if not for the GOP Congress going along all these years. All a Democrat has to do is run as a Republican and the RNC jumps right on their bandwagon. It has cost us our country!!! Remember the exodus from the GOP leadership last November, the conservative ones bailed before they could be painted with the progressive brush because the RNC failed them and us. We have Johnny Boy bleating for the public to stand up, we have, but all for naught when people like him are duplicitous!!! We have been disenfranchised.

A lot of dead people voted as well as people who had registered more than once in the last two elections. Throw in the welfare slugs and now we have a very unrepresentative govt.

I don't know if there will be enough backlash in the next two elections to reverse the course we are headed on. We will see.

Meantime, buy that ammo!
