Deem and Pass, Vote Buying Kick Backs, Bureaucrats as Doctors. Rationing. Just a Few Reasons to VOTE TODAY.

From the Washington Examiner’s editorial today about “Voters to Democrats: It’s ObamaCare, Stupid,”

The evidence was certainly there for everybody to see early on. A clear majority of Americans expressed doubts about Obamacare in 2009 as soon as they became aware of its central feature: putting government bureaucrats between patients and their doctors. Their doubts solidified into determined opposition during 2009’s long hot summer of tempestuous Town Hall meetings. The opposition grew stronger still as the months ticked by despite repeated “new” efforts by Obama and his allies in Congress and the liberal mainstream media to “sell” Obamacare.
It appeared that the Obamacare drive stalled in January when Massachusetts voters put Republican Scott Brown in the Senate seat formerly held by Ted Kennedy. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi persuaded Obama to ignore chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, who counseled stepping back, and instead to push forward against all opposition. There followed the Cornhusker Kickback, the Louisiana Purchase and other corrupt closed-door deals to buy critically needed Senate votes. Then came Pelosi’s infamous “Deem and Pass” rule that forced an up-or-down vote in the House with little debate and no floor amendments even as thousands protested outside the Capitol. Obamacare was thus passed into law, and the opposition began demands for its repeal.

Obama’s Peeps Give Out Your Name and Phone Number to Strangers

There’s just something odd about the savior of the free world, the man under whose command the seas will recede and the climate will cool, who gives your name and phone number to complete strangers.
Victoria —
Tomorrow, you can help determine not just the outcome of this election, but our country’s future.
You made the difference in 2008. Now, once again, you can defy the conventional wisdom that says you can’t overcome the cynicism of our politics; you can’t overcome the special interests and the big money; you can’t tackle our biggest challenges.

This movement has never backed down from a tough fight — and we’re not about to start.

Victoria, we’ve got to keep moving America forward — but I need allies in the House, the Senate, and governing states to make it happen. The ballot you cast in 2008 was a crucial first step. Thank you for that.

In addition to returning your ballot, I need you to make sure you get at least three of your friends to do the same. It is simply the most important thing you can do to make sure we can keep bringing about change.
