No. The deaths of 13 Americans and one unborn child were low on the priority list, compared to passing socialized medicine.
A month later, a Nigerian jihadist attempted to bomb a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas Day. Do you think the security of American travellers, as well as preventing a worse terror attack than 9/11 is on the minds of those who represent you?
Hell no! They want to pass socialized medicine and, in the process, want to kill the foundation of representative democracy.
Michelle Malkin quotes TNR:
Now that both the House and Senate have passed health care reform bills, all Democrats have to do is work out a compromise between the two versions. And it appears they’re not about to let the Republicans gum up the works again.Hillary Clinton claimed the Republicans ran Congress "like a plantation." Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid run Congress like a fascist dictatorship or a Communist Politburo.
According to a pair of senior Capitol Hill staffers, one from each chamber, House and Senate Democrats are “almost certain” to negotiate informally rather than convene a formal conference committee. Doing so would allow Democrats to avoid a series of procedural steps–not least among them, a series of special motions in the Senate, each requiring a vote with full debate–that Republicans could use to stall deliberations, just as they did in November and December.
“There will almost certainly be full negotiations but no formal conference,” the House staffer says. “There are too many procedural hurdles to go the formal conference route in the Senate.”
After the superb job the government didn't do in protecting us from Islamic terrorists over the Christmas break, do we really want to trust them with our health care?
