Why do we need bribes, threats, and possibly illegal emails?
Undecided Democrats are being promised campaign perks and lucrative committee assignments. They are being threatened with decreased fund-raising support, primary opponents and the loss of committee chairmanships. President Barack Obama has even lobbied members one-on-one aboard Air Force One.
The White House Office of Health Reform Director Nancy-Ann DeParle has been feverishly sending out unsolicited email messages to federal employees in an effort to build support for President Barack Obama’s health reform package over the last several weeks.
DeParle’s unsolicited emails have been regularly coming to some federal employees’ official government email inboxes for weeks without permission or request, causing some federal employees to feel threatened by the overt political language. (WT – this could be considered a means of creating a hostile work environment, which is illegal)
The ranking member of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee is opening an investigation into the “secret deals” that the White House and Democrats made with various healthcare stakeholders.
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) sent letters today to six organizations asking them what agreements, if any, they made with the Obama administration in exchange for their support of (or lack of opposition to) healthcare reform.
And let’s not forget what is important to Obama, and it is not a 3 letter word (j-o-b-s)
On no other issue has President Obama put in as much effort and displayed as much passion as on health care.
Since launching his campaign for health care reform with a White House forum on March 5th of last year, Mr. Obama has delivered 54 speeches and statements on the issue.
That is out of 471 speeches since taking office 424 days ago. Why the need to speachify so much if the legislation is so super duper wonderful? Whatever happened to jobs and the economy being the #1 priority?
If it is so great, why are States already planning lawsuits? Why are there threats of lawsuits over the individual mandate? Legal challenges over “deem and pass“? If Democrats thought the process was ugly prior to any passage, just wait and see if it actually passes. Feels like 1776
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes;…..
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
