The Pride of Montana and the Democrat Party

Folks in Montana, and Democrats everywhere, must be very proud of their U.S. Senator - such eloquence, such dignity, such a lush.

Senator Max Baucus, DEM, Mont., certainly appears to be and sounds as if he is either drunk or high or both. He is certainly incoherent and rambling and has an even less than usual grasp of truth.

Yes folks, this is one of the main architects of Obamacare. Makes you feel all warm fuzzy, doncha' think.

Political Prostitution On Parade

In addition to Louisiana Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu, who sold her vote in favor of Obamacare for somewhere between $100 and $300 million dollars in added benefits that will help her re-election efforts, we can now add the name of Senator Ben Nelson, Democrat Nebraska to the list of politicians who have sold their vote.

And what is the price that induces liberal Democrat Senator Nelson to abandon his pro-life supporters and bend over for his masters in the Democrat party?

Under the new abortion provisions, states can opt out of allowing plans to cover abortion in the new insurance exchanges the bill would set up, to serve individuals who lack coverage through their jobs. Plus, enrollees in plans that do cover abortion procedures would pay for the coverage with separate checks -- one for abortion, one for the rest of any health-care services.

Nelson secured full federal funding for his state to expand Medicaid coverage to all individuals below 133 percent of the federal poverty level. Other states must pay a small portion of the additional cost. He won concessions for qualifying nonprofit insurers and for Medigap providers from a new insurance tax, and was able to roll back cuts to health savings accounts.

Federally funded abortions and extra goodies for the residents of his state paid for by the rest of us. Said another way, non-Nebraska taxpayers will be funding additional benefits for Nebraska that Nelson will tout and use to buy votes.

Virtually every reputable poll shows that American citizens do not favor this Obamacare plan and yet the liberal Democrat party and it's mushminded members continue to try push it down our throats. Thanks to political prostitution this onerous 2000 plus page bill is closer than ever to becoming the law of the land.

Is it any wonder that faith in elected officials is lower than ever?

Spend Your Way Out Of Debt - the Obama Way

Anyone who has ever sat around the kitchen table trying to balance their home budget or has had to struggle with a business budget knows that you can't spend your way out of economic problems and debt. We refer to this as "common sense".

In the high-powered world of liberal politics, however, this "common sense" is ignored. Once again Obama is calling upon Congress and the American people to spend more money to try and fix our current economic woes [read more].

Let's see if this makes sense: our national debt is skyrocketing already, government run health care and cap and trade will only add to that, private sector businesses are laying off thousands of people and Obama wants to spend more money. And where does the money come from that Obama wants to spend? As always, from the same taxpayers who are already struggling financially.

Government jobs and jobs created with temporary government spending do not boost the economy. Those jobs have to be paid for somehow and that means the taxpayer gets hit again.

If Obama and his liberal minions were serious they would lower taxes and let the private sector do what it is best equipped to do and that is create jobs and economic growth. They would do all they could to get government out of the way and the free market system operate without government imposed constraints.

All of these bills and debt being run up by Congress and Obama are going to come due someday. Somebody is going to have to pay and that somebody is you, me, our kids and our grandkids.

Sen Reid Is Losing What Little Sanity He Had

Sen, Harry Reid, Liberal/Dem, Nev, today likened those who oppose the government takeover of the health care industry to those who supported slavery. He also likened the opponents, Republicans, to those who tried to filibuster and stop civil rights legislation. This second claim clearly shows that Sen. Reid has little if any grasp of history or the truth since it was DEMOCRAT Senator Strom Thurmond who led the failed filibuster (Sen Thurmond changed parties some time later). You can read more here.

Were this topic not so darned important, the Senator from Nevada could be laughed off as just another bad jerk. This type of rhetoric is hardly worthy of a debate as important to the future of this country. I find it hard to believe that this joke in a three piece suit truly represents the people of Nevada.

Senator Reid, I do believe your clown car is waiting for outside the Senate building.

Arrogance Unbounded

Washington D.C. is absolutely overflowing with arrogant, self important polpigs, bureaucrats, lobbyists and "journalists". An oath of office or ethics of professional codes of conduct mean nothing to the elite class that would rule the United States of America as their personal fiefdom.

Standing tall amongst the ranks of the arrogant polpigs is Senator Barbara Boxer, Dem-Socialist, CA. As if to confirm her position within the D.C. cesspool, Senator Boxer has weighed in on what has come to known as "climategate".

Briefly for those who have been out of touch for a few weeks, "climategate" refers to aftermath of the release of a large collection of emails and other documents and programs that clearly show that the claims of man-made global warming is an outright fraud. The documents were obtained by persons concerned with getting the truth into the hands of the people. Mainstream media and the entrenched elites label these people as "hackers", the rest of us consider them to be whistleblowers.

[As a sidenote, the data that has been released was requested through the British version of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The requests were either denied or ignored.]

Rather than investigate the truth of these documents, data and programs, Senator Boxer, an unflappable champion of man-made global warming, believes that the whistleblowers should be investigated not as concerned and frustrated citizens but as criminals.

"You call it 'Climategate'; I call it 'E-mail-theft-gate,'" she said during a committee meeting.

One may safely assume that if this were a case of information being leaked regarding fraud or corruption within a conservative group, Sen. Boxer would be leading the campaign to honor the whistleblower.

The Senator goes on to say:

"We may well have a hearing on this, we may not. We may have a briefing for senators, we may not," Boxer said. "Part of our looking at this will be looking at a criminal activity which could have well been coordinated.

"This is a crime," Boxer said. [read more]

No Senator, the release of data that by all rights should have already been in the public domain is not a crime. The only true crime here is that someone as arrogant and self absorbed as yourself sits in a seat of power. Shame on you and shame on the people of California for electing you in the first place.
