america hostage

Remember this lie?


America seems to be awakening from its Obama-induced stupor. Nancy “Botox OD” Pelosi is becoming even more strident in her partisan rhetoric, to the point of resorting to blatant lies.

The top Democrat in the House says Republicans are “legislative arsonists” who are using their opposition to a sweeping health care overhaul as an excuse to close government’s doors.

Did you catch that? Pelosi says the goal of the GOP is to shut down government and their opposition to Obamacare is only the vehicle to that end. It is, of course, a lie, as most Pelosi statements are.

For example, remember this?

“Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.”

and then i said

Americans are discovering that they won’t be able to keep their plans, and in growing numbers.

Another number is growing- the number of Americans who disapprove of Obamacare.

A new poll finds 53 percent of people disapprove of ObamaCare and President Obama’s approach to healthcare policy, a record high on both questions.

The survey from USA Today and the Pew Research Center also found Republicans have gained a narrow but telling edge on healthcare issues generally.

The poll revealed that 40 percent now prefer the GOP on healthcare compared to 39 percent who prefer Democrats, erasing a preference for Democrats that had stretched back more than 20 years.

The House did vote to defund Obamacare, but it also voted to keep the government open with a continuing resolution.

The House voted Friday to keep the government open through mid-December but only if Congress strips funding from ObamaCare.

The vote was 230 to 189, and largely expected.

Current funding for the government is set to expire at the end of the month, and lawmakers must approve the stopgap bill in order to keep Washington open.

The GOP measure would fund the government through Dec. 15, at current funding levels.

“Today, the constitutional conservatives in the House are keeping their word to our constituents and our nation to stand true to our principles, to protect them from the most unpopular law ever passed in the history of the country- ObamaCare- that intrudes on their privacy and our most sacred right as Americans to be left alone,” Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas, said on the House floor.

Sen. Harry Reid denounced the effort and promised that the Senate would vote it down, but democrats may find out that they now hold the short end of the stick. A recent Rasmussen poll indicated that 51% of Americans want Obamacare slashed, even if it means shutting down the government.

The bad news for democrats doesn’t stop there either.

A recent poll by CNN, for example, found that just 39 percent of Americans support ObamaCare, with the numbers still plunging fast across all demographic groups. Separately, a USA TODAY/Pew Research Center Poll revealed that a solid majority of respondents — 53 percent — oppose the healthcare scheme, with a whopping 41 percent saying they “very strongly” disapprove. Only one fourth thought ObamaCare would be positive for their family, while more than four out of 10 said the impacts would be negative.

Another poll, commissioned by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News, found that, by a massive 45 percent to 23 percent margin, Americans believe the scheme will have a negative impact on the nation’s healthcare system rather than a positive one. The survey also found that about three fourths of respondents were already satisfied with their coverage, presenting further hurdles for proponents of so-called “healthcare reform.” A majority believes it will increase costs, too — a phenomenon that is already occurring.

It is no wonder that Nancy Pelosi said we had to pass Obamacare to find out what’s in it and the more Americans learn about it, the less they want it. Obamacare is premised on a series of lies and a majority of Americans want it gone, even if it means government shutdown.

Democrats are holding America hostage.

Let my people go.
