Change, Lies and an America without a Clue

When B.H. Obama was on the campaign trail he promised a new era of transparency. An era of good government, accountability, a new day in Washington. What a laugh!

On Saturday morning, Mr. Harry Reid threw out the 2,100 page bill that the worlds greatest deliberative body spent just 17 days debating and replaced it with a new "managers amendment" that was stapled together in covert partisian negotiations. Democrats are barely even bothering to pretend to care what's in it, not that any Senator had the chance to digest it in the 38 hours before the first cloture vote at 1 a.m. this morning!

The rushed secretive way that a bill this destructive and unpopular is being forced on the country shows that "reform" has devolved into the raw exercise of political power for the single purpose of permanently expanding the American entitlement state.

A huge number of "leaders" are looking at this bill as being so large and convoluted than no one can truly understand it. It is scary, it is wrong, it is a lie.

Americans sit and stand idly by hoping their health improves. It won't. Great health is a personal matter and it is up to America to take care of their health. America will get what they voted in. One big lie.
