Patriots and Snakes - How They Voted on H.R.3962

The "Affordable Health Care for America Act" (H.R. 3962), a truly misnamed and dangerous bill, passed the House of Representatives last night. 3962 needed 218 votes to pass; 220 snakes votes for it, while 215 patriots voted against it. Click here for a breakdown of how the members of Congress voted. To quote from the Tea Party Patriots web site: Near midnight on Saturday, November 7th, when most Americans were either sleeping or otherwise destracted, democratic members of the House of Representatives ignored the clear will of a very vocal American majority and implanted the tenticals of a growing tyrannical government into the spine of the republic that was built on the back of hard working Americans. The merits of the democrats proposal have been debated and it is well known that the bill will result in an enormous breakdown of the American health care system. This did not stop Nancy Pelosi and her fellow democrats from grabbing trillions of dollars directly from the paychecks of average citizens. An amount equal to one sixth of the American economy. (Full Post at Tea Party Patriots...) Calling 3862 "affordable" is a bit like a college kid declaring that the tuition is "affordable" even though Mom and Dad are paying the bill. While if may be "affordable" for the kid, who is not spending a dime for it, somebody's got to pay for it. Mom and Dad know that all too well. Every penny that Mom and Dad spend on the kid's tuition is another penny less that the kid will inherit. H.R. 3962 is not yet law. The Senate must give it a green light first. Meanwhile, one must wonder if our Democrat neighbors - the ones who are soooooo happy that 3962 passed - would not go into effect for about three years, during which time Medicare would be slashed and taxes raised to help pay for the "affordable" health care. It is hoped that the Senate will stop the madness of 3962 before it becomes law. In the event that they don't, however, dictionaries will have to rewrite their definitions of "affordable."
