More about ObamaCare!

Obama’s Spectre of Fear - Reagan’s Legacy Judge Vinson Skewers ObamaCare
So stand by America; howls and eloquent statements of bombast will fill the air over the next weeks or months

How ironic is it that the act which in all probability has struck the most fear in our thought-to-be-unflappable usurper president Barack Hussein Obama, was dealt by Judge Roger Vinson of the district court in Pensacola, Florida, a President Ronald Reagan appointee?
How many disciples of the old “Gipper” have been chortling with glee at any given moment since Vinson’s fearless decision was handed down?
The high-handed arrogance and disdain which Obama handles most matters of state has undoubtedly caught him flat-footed and without a suitable retaliation. He is most likely shocked that a mere District Court judge would rule against the almighty messiah of the ruled classes, which is nearly everyone beneath his lofty station.
You can be assured that he will handle this with as much tactlessness as he has done in other challenged situations, to wit; issue a directive over-ruling the decision and passing instructions to carry on as before.
But somehow, this time I think he will get his come-uppance. District Court judges may not be in the highest tier of legalistic mumbo-jumbo declarations as say the SCOTUS (the Supremes) but they’re just outside the chambers so to speak and they don’t flinch easily.
Judge Vinson obviously knows what a great majority of the American people know; that any written law that subverts the United States Constitution is about as good as yesterday’s plate of left over sardines, and will be disposed of just as quickly.
Even those of us who have not thoroughly read that tome, including our United States Congress, are aware that you just don’t fool with the ‘Big One’, the belly of all laws, the Constitution, unless you are already in default of it as are many of our high officials, even VERY high. Which is definitely not an enviable place to be.
As this is being written, no definitive word has been issued as yet from the White House or the lackeys in the Justice Department, but you can rest assured that the bleating and bleeding will be fast and furious and just as erroneously contentious. To defend the indefensible seems to be the order of the day for this Administration with its go along to get along Justice Department that rules with a different set of justice fiats in the name of the grand usurper for any given situation.
Bluster and grand declarations accompany any and all challenges to the messiah’s whims and wills; the people be damned is usually the thought for the day in our (lack of) Justice Department. That entity has run roughshod over the Constitution ever since the appointment of the shady character of its leader has taken control.
Justice is meted out only in the mind of the Attorney General such as granting a clean slate without trial to villainous behavior Black Panthers for example but prosecuting an entire state for trying to protect itself where the federal government has failed.
So stand by America; howls and eloquent statements of bombast will fill the air over the next weeks or months while the wounded government leadership looks for a devious and back-door deal with one of the less savory black robe-wearing, in-the-tank (un) justices is found to put the brakes on the stoppage of a disastrously expensive and harmful piece of legislation that a majority of Americans want dead.

Obama has a Very Bad Day
Federal judge: Obama administration's health overhaul is unconstitutional
By Alan Caruba
Monday, January 31, 2011
PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — A federal judge in Florida says the Obama administration’s health overhaul is unconstitutional, siding with 26 states that had sued to block it. U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson on Monday accepted without trial the states’ argument that the new law violates people’s rights by forcing them to buy health insurance by 2014 or face penalties.
Attorneys for the administration had argued that the states did not have standing to challenge the law and that the case should be dismissed. The case is likely to go to the U.S. Supreme Court. Two other federal judges have upheld the insurance requirement, but a federal judge in Virginia also ruled the insurance requirement unconstitutional.”
See? The system works. That is to say, the one set up by the U.S. Constitution. You remember the U.S. Constitution, right?
And, well, when 26 States all say that a law passed by Congress and signed by the President is unconstitutional, the chances are it is.
When you combine that with the House of Representatives’ call for its repeal, even Democrat Senators (particularly those facing reelection in 2012) are going to think twice about voting against repeal when it gets to the Senate floor.
President Obama is just two years into his first and last term, looking more and more like Jimmy Carter every day, courtesy of the mobs in the streets of Cairo.
For two years he threw trillions of OUR dollars at “stimulus” legislation to generate jobs and failed. Now the most central piece of legislation for him, former Speaker Pelosi, and Harry Reid has been ruled unconstitutional.
Not a good day for the Democratic Party. A really awful day for Barack Hussein Obama
There is no way Obama can breath life into that horrid overhaul of Medicare that pulled trillions out of it while adding millions more Americans to it. No where in the Constitution does it say that the government can require you to buy insurance, a hamburger, or even a lottery ticket.
Moreover, as various entities examined Obamacare, it became increasingly clear that it was a monstrosity filled with mandates that would end up killing people who didn’t have months to wait around for an operation or waiting to see the increasingly fewer physicians it would force to leave the profession for lack of adequate compensation.
It is now clear to everyone that Obama was and is totally unsuited and unprepared to be President. Now watch the issue of his real place of birth move to the center of the stage.
The U.S. can survive a “President Biden”, but Obama should never have been let anywhere near the Oval Office.
Not a good day for the Democratic Party. A really awful day for Barack Hussein Obama.

60 Percent of Americans Want ObamaCare Repealed, But Not the Anti-American Senate and President
Bribes, arm twisting, dishonesty, death panels
By Jerry McConnell

In our national elections held just this past November 02, 2010 the American people spoke out loudly and clearly against the socialist liberal Democrats and the unconstitutional medical plan called ObamaCare that was forced through both houses of Congress, which they controlled at an earlier time in 2010 before the elections.
The newly elected conservatives to the Republican Party in Congress were of such magnitude that they were able to regain control of the House of Representatives by a wide margin, and just missed getting control of the Senate by a mere three members.
The people let it be known that they wanted the unconstitutional and illegal ObamaCare removed from our government and the faster the better; the Republican House listened and in less than three months from the elections in November and in less than two weeks of the seating of the freshmen House Representatives on January 5, 2011, the Republicans responded with the help a few Democrats, soundly repealing the ObamaCare medical legislation only some six months after having been signed into law in 2010.
As stated online January 21, 2011 by E.W. Jackson, Sr., Chairman, S.T.A.N.D. America PAC, “There are many things wrong with ObamaCare, but S.T.A.N.D. America PAC ‘s biggest concern is that at its very core, ObamaCare is ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL.”
Jackson, is a Bishop of the Exodus Faith Ministries who teaches Biblical principles and application for success and victory in every area of life. He also prays for healing and miracles in the lives of God’s people. It is an atmosphere of praise, worship and sound teaching.
Agreeing with Bishop Jackson is U. S. District Court Judge Henry Hudson in Richmond, Virginia, an appointee of President George W. Bush, who said, “This dispute is not simply about regulating the business of insurance - or crafting a scheme of universal health insurance coverage - it’s about an individual’s right to choose to participate. The unchecked expansion of congressional power to the limits suggested by the mandate would invite unbridled exercise of federal powers”
As noted in an online Washington Post article titled “Federal judge in Va. strikes down part of health-care law” by Rosalind S. Helderman and Amy Goldstein, the ruling by Hudson, sets up a conflict with opinions by Democratic-appointed judges who have concluded recently that the law is constitutional. The final word is widely expected to come from the U.S. Supreme Court.
Requiring everyone to buy health insurance is the cornerstone of Obamacare
Bishop Jackson also stated that “Requiring everyone to buy health insurance is the cornerstone of Obamacare because without it, Obama cannot fund the rest of the bill. He was counting on millions of young, healthy individuals to be forced to purchase insurance and pay for older Americans, and those with chronic conditions.”
Jackson also stated “Liberals laughed when the legality of Obamacare was brought up in press conferences. When questioned about the constitutionality of the bill in one press conference, Pelosi asked, ‘Are you serious? Are you serious?’ Yes, Madam Speaker, we were serious.
“We seriously wanted to know where in the Constitution it says that the federal government can force its citizens to buy a product or service - and especially a product or service that is heavily regulated by that same federal government.”
This particular piece of legislation was ill-fated at the start; it was to have been Obama’s highlight measure, one that would carry his name to high places in our history books and announce his leadership presence on our domestic scene. But alas, it was so controversial and contentious that most of its contents were agreed to behind closed doors away from the public’s eyes.
Republicans were refused admission to any of the closed door sessions and many good ideas of theirs were denied a hearing with the drafting committee members, all of which were liberal Democrat leaning. The final product that was rushed to vote was totally unknown to all of the members of Congress, including the president’s own party members. One of whom, the arrogant and condescending Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi said for public edification, “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.”
And though Pelosi was being her haughty self while saying the above, it didn’t prevent the general public from finding out that, as Bishop Jackson said, “it was full of deals and bribes that would make even the most experienced con artist blush.”
Two of the most publicized bribes were the ones for Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson exchanging his ‘Yea’ vote for an exemption for his state from ever having to pay their share of Medicaid again; and for Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu’s ‘Yea’ vote, the federal government agreed to send her state $300 million in Medicaid kickbacks.
How is that for good old dishonest ‘back room’ dealing and cheating the other taxpayers of the country to get their votes.
Those of us who opposed the legislation had to pay these bribes out of our pockets. And as Jackson further
pointed out, North Dakota’s Senator Kent Conrad got higher reimbursement rates for doctors and hospitals that serve Medicare patients for his vote. So there was a lot of typical liberal Democrat DISHONESTY and CHEATING during the twisting of arms and cajoling for votes to pass this piece of absolute dung that will raise our taxes, curtail our expected prime medical services and send senior citizens to an early grave because of death panels and deletion of nearly a half TRILLION dollars in Medicare funding for Seniors.
Obama and the lib-Dems don’t want ObamaCare repealed; the newly elected conservatives rightly disagree; if the Democrats in the Senate are smart, they will agree with the new conservatives and get this monstrosity dead and buried, so an honest plan can be enacted.
