There are tens of thousands of American citizens vectoring in on the Capitol for a rally Saturday, followed by visits to the Congress cretins' lairs where presumably no too few Representatives and Senators will be cowering in their inner offices, or perhaps the gym shower?
Citizens are asking some very pointed questions. The country is aroused as never before, as the leftist Congress lock steps its way to a precipice from which it cannot return at the behest of their Marxist ideologue.
President Obama, fresh from having his clock cleaned by Fox News’ Bret Baier, went straight to George Mason University where he continued his rant against the insurance companies in front of another picked audience.
Meanwhile on the hill, the atmosphere is reaching fever pitch with claims and counter claims flying through the statist press.
House Republican Leader John Boehner mailed a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, requesting that ‘every member stand in front of the American people and explain their vote in a roll call vote per House of Representatives rule XX, clause 2 and 3.'
Putting the lie to Obama stating that the stimulus and jobs bills will enable corporations to re-hire laid off employees, Caterpillar Corporation announced more layoffs and laid off 22,000 people last month. Caterpillar CEO Jim Owens said there will be more layoffs before there would be any hiring. Owens said the pending health care legislation would increase his health care costs by over 100 million dollars the first year alone.
Senator Tom Coburn had a stark promise for Democrats who sold their votes for promises of federal appointments or jobs if they vote yes and are bounced out of office by their constituents. He warned that their appointments would have to come in front of the Senate and that ‘they would have to explain their votes to the American people’. “They would certainly be held” he said, referring to any jobs or appointments.
Budget expert James Capretta stated that the CBO analysis gives a false 10 year projection over the first full 10 years of implementation. The real cost of the new entitlement spending would reach 2.5 trillion dollars. This figure agrees with analysis from other sources.
Keep up the calls, emails, faxes and visits… the Capitol has been receiving 500,000 calls per day… this says nothing about hundreds of thousands of emails and faxes.
Keep up the great work! HOO-RAH!
