Don't listen to big media the NON stimulus bill is not a done deal. It has to go back to conference committee and then be agreed upon by the House and Senate. Keep calling your Senators and Congressman.
More and more info is coming out about the hidden plans and programs in this bill. Things like the Health Care issue Meems linked an article to in her last post. The left is trying to circumvent the American process of debate and dicourse and ram this through as quickly as possible. We all know that the spending in this bill is out of control, and now we are finding out there is legislation that has nothing to do with stimulus or the economy and effects other areas of our domestic policy. THIS IS NOT HOW POLICY IS SUPPOSED TO BE LEGISLATED.
Where is the transparency that Barrack promised? Where are the ethical restraints? Where is the compromise and unity? It is completely missing.
Please I know it takes time, but let your voice be heard. The roars are growing louder and even though it seems to be falling on deaf ears it will only take a few votes to switch to stop this horrible train wreck. Every minute this bill is held up in the process the dissaproval of the American people grows greater. These legislators are in a position to serve us, the people, not dictate policy. Let them know firmly that they need to listen to our opinion.
Lastly I leave you with this from the late Dr. Adrian Rogers.
“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.
You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”
