There are some things Congress does not the authority to do!

We are facing the brutal reality of what the 111th Congress has forced down our throats:

* Abortion coverage Americans don't want
* Exorbitant costs Americans don't want
* Mandatory participation Americans don't want
* New federal bureaucracies Americans don't want
* A vast expansion of IRS power Americans don't want

Our Constitution is being subverted right before our eyes.

Never before has the will of the people been so completely ignored and marginalized. Obamacare is unconstitutional! If Congress has the power to FORCE each person to have health insurance, then individual liberty is totally meaningless....

The bill that passed the House of Representatives on Sunday night is unconstitutional because:

1) Congress has NO authority to force every American to carry insurance coverage, and,
2) Congress has NO authority to fine employers whose policies do not have the mandated coverage.

There are some things Congress does not the authority to do!!! And the threat to our liberty posed by ObamaCare goes FAR beyond healthcare. If Congress can get away with this expansive power grab, then individual liberty and state sovereignty will soon vanish.

"As a concerned citizen, I am signing this official statement to demonstrate my support of litigation challenging the Constitutionality of ObamaCare as passed by the 111th Congress. Specifically, I believe that government-mandated requirements for individuals to obtain health insurance are unconstitutional. Congress is not granted the power to force Americans to comply with such a mandate. Likewise, I believe requirements that employers provide such insurance coverage are also unconstitutional.

If Congress had the power to force Americans to have health insurance, then individual liberty would be overpowered and thus become meaningless. No matter what certain elected officials may desire, there are some things Congress simply cannot do under our Constitution. I do not want the federal government or any group of bureaucrats policing my private medical decisions. The legislation that passed Congress on March 21, 2010, popularly known as the ObamaCare healthcare reform bill, contains such a “mandate,” and is therefore a threat to individual liberty and the sovereignty of the States. I therefore support legal action to stop ObamaCare.

The American People Will Not Allow a Corrupt Machine to Dictate Their Future

On the floor Sunday night, Congressman John Boehner aptly summarized the consequences of voting for this bill:

"If we pass this bill, there will be no turning back. It will be the last straw for the American people. And in a democracy, you can only ignore the will of the people for so long and get away with it. And if we defy the will of our fellow citizens and pass this bill, we are going to be held to account by those who have placed us in their trust."

2010 and 2012 will be among the most important elections in American history.

These elections will allow us to save America from a leftwing machine of unparalleled corruption, arrogance, and cynicism.

The American people will not allow a corrupt machine to dictate their future.

Together we will pledge to repeal this bill and start over on meaningful, effective, healthcare reform.

Together we will prove that this will not stand.

20 Freedoms You Will Lose Under Obamacare

Benjamin Franklin stated, “People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.”

We are about to see that happen with this socialistic take over of our health care.

This link was just sent to me... ( thought I share it.

1. You are young and don’t want health insurance? You are starting up a small business and need to minimize expenses, and one way to do that is to forego health insurance? Tough. You have to pay $750 annually for the “privilege.” (Section 1501)

2. You are young and healthy and want to pay for insurance that reflects that status? Tough. You’ll have to pay for premiums that cover not only you, but also the guy who smokes three packs a day, drink a gallon of whiskey and eats chicken fat off the floor. That’s because insurance companies will no longer be able to underwrite on the basis of a person’s health status. (Section 2701).

3. You would like to pay less in premiums by buying insurance with lifetime or annual limits on coverage? Tough. Health insurers will no longer be able to offer such policies, even if that is what customers prefer. (Section 2711).

4. Think you’d like a policy that is cheaper because it doesn’t cover preventive care or requires cost-sharing for such care? Tough. Health insurers will no longer be able to offer policies that do not cover preventive services or offer them with cost-sharing, even if that’s what the customer wants. (Section 2712).

5. You are an employer and you would like to offer coverage that doesn’t allow your employers’ slacker children to stay on the policy until age 26? Tough. (Section 2714).

6. You must buy a policy that covers ambulatory patient services, emergency services, hospitalization, maternity and newborn care, mental health and substance use disorder services, including behavioral health treatment; prescription drugs; rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices; laboratory services; preventive and wellness services; chronic disease management; and pediatric services, including oral and vision care.

You’re a single guy without children? Tough, your policy must cover pediatric services. You’re a woman who can’t have children? Tough, your policy must cover maternity services. You’re a teetotaler? Tough, your policy must cover substance abuse treatment. (Add your own violation of personal freedom here.) (Section 1302).

7. Do you want a plan with lots of cost-sharing and low premiums? Well, the best you can do is a “Bronze plan,” which has benefits that provide benefits that are actuarially equivalent to 60% of the full actuarial value of the benefits provided under the plan. Anything lower than that, tough. (Section 1302 (d) (1) (A))

8. You are an employer in the small-group insurance market and you’d like to offer policies with deductibles higher than $2,000 for individuals and $4,000 for families? Tough. (Section 1302 (c) (2) (A).

9. If you are a large employer (defined as at least 101 employees) and you do not want to provide health insurance to your employee, then you will pay a $750 fine per employee (It could be $2,000 to $3,000 under the reconciliation changes). Think you know how to better spend that money? Tough. (Section 1513).

10. You are an employer who offers health flexible spending arrangements and your employees want to deduct more than $2,500 from their salaries for it? Sorry, can’t do that. (Section 9005 (i)).

11. If you are a physician and you don’t want the government looking over your shoulder? Tough. The Secretary of Health and Human Services is authorized to use your claims data to issue you reports that measure the resources you use, provide information on the quality of care you provide, and compare the resources you use to those used by other physicians. Of course, this will all be just for informational purposes. It’s not like the government will ever use it to intervene in your practice and patients’ care. Of course not. (Section 3003 (i))

12. If you are a physician and you want to own your own hospital, you must be an owner and have a “Medicare provider agreement” by Feb. 1, 2010. (Dec. 31, 2010 in the reconciliation changes.) If you didn’t have those by then, you are out of luck. (Section 6001 (i) (1) (A))

13. If you are a physician owner and you want to expand your hospital? Well, you can’t (Section 6001 (i) (1) (B). Unless, it is located in a country where, over the last five years, population growth has been 150% of what it has been in the state (Section 6601 (i) (3) ( E)). And then you cannot increase your capacity by more than 200% (Section 6001 (i) (3) (C)).

14. You are a health insurer and you want to raise premiums to meet costs? Well, if that increase is deemed “unreasonable” by the Secretary of Health and Human Services it will be subject to review and can be denied. (Section 1003)

15. The government will extract a fee of $2.3 billion annually from the pharmaceutical industry. If you are a pharmaceutical company what you will pay depends on the ratio of the number of brand-name drugs you sell to the total number of brand-name drugs sold in the U.S. So, if you sell 10% of the brand-name drugs in the U.S., what you pay will be 10% multiplied by $2.3 billion, or $230,000,000. (Under reconciliation, it starts at $2.55 billion, jumps to $3 billion in 2012, then to $3.5 billion in 2017 and $4.2 billion in 2018, before settling at $2.8 billion in 2019 (Section 1404)). Think you, as a pharmaceutical executive, know how to better use that money, say for research and development? Tough. (Section 9008 (b)).

16. The government will extract a fee of $2 billion annually from medical device makers. If you are a medical device maker what you will pay depends on your share of medical device sales in the U.S. So, if you sell 10% of the medical devices in the U.S., what you pay will be 10% multiplied by $2 billion, or $200,000,000. Think you, as a medical device maker, know how to better use that money, say for R&D? Tough. (Section 9009 (b)).

The reconciliation package turns that into a 2.9% excise tax for medical device makers. Think you, as a medical device maker, know how to better use that money, say for research and development? Tough. (Section 1405).

17. The government will extract a fee of $6.7 billion annually from insurance companies. If you are an insurer, what you will pay depends on your share of net premiums plus 200% of your administrative costs. So, if your net premiums and administrative costs are equal to 10% of the total, you will pay 10% of $6.7 billion, or $670,000,000. In the reconciliation bill, the fee will start at $8 billion in 2014, $11.3 billion in 2015, $1.9 billion in 2017, and $14.3 billion in 2018 (Section 1406).Think you, as an insurance executive, know how to better spend that money? Tough.(Section 9010 (b) (1) (A and B).)

18. If an insurance company board or its stockholders think the CEO is worth more than $500,000 in deferred compensation? Tough.(Section 9014).

19. You will have to pay an additional 0.5% payroll tax on any dollar you make over $250,000 if you file a joint return and $200,000 if you file an individual return. What? You think you know how to spend the money you earned better than the government? Tough. (Section 9015).
That amount will rise to a 3.8% tax if reconciliation passes. It will also apply to investment income, estates, and trusts. You think you know how to spend the money you earned better than the government? Like you need to ask. (Section 1402).

20. If you go for cosmetic surgery, you will pay an additional 5% tax on the cost of the procedure. Think you know how to spend that money you earned better than the government? Tough. (Section 9017).

I felt it when I woke up this morning!!

We've called our Representatives and Senators -- over
and over ...

We've e-mailed ...

We've attended webcasts ...

We've sent faxes ...

We've spread the word to family and friends ...

We've spoken out at town hall meetings ...

We've written letters to Members of Congress ...

We've signed petitions ...

We've visited Congressional offices ...

We've posted updates on Facebook and Twitter ...

We've attended marches and rallies ...

We've submitted letters to the editor of our local
newspapers ...

We prayed....

BUT, We were betrayed by those whom we elected.

Never has Congress passed a piece of legislation that grows government to this extent. Our freedoms are hanging on by a thread!!

ObamaCare (H.R. 3590) imposes $500 billion of new taxes, cuts Medicare by $500 billion, and expands Medicaid by 33% in the middle of a deep recession. IRS agents will now ensure that you buy Washington-approved health insurance - and we don't even know what that will look like.

219 Democrats voted to impose mandates, higher taxes and insurance premiums and protect President Obama's political legacy over jobs and the economy. Without a single Republican vote, there was nothing bi-partisan about this bill.

I had hopes that there was such a thing as a Pro-life Democrat. But Bart Stupak and Ben Nelson promises were lies.

My representative (Brian Baird) was one of those to strip away our freedoms and I am so disgusted with him and the others. He is not running again (Good Riddance to him for betraying us and giving away our freedoms). We must vote them all out of office. (See how your Senator and Representative voted.)

There is no provision in the United States Constitution giving the central government the authority to nationalize health care, but liberals have never let the Constitution stand in the way of their incremental efforts to socialize the U.S. economy. Our current President seems intent on destroying, not preserving, the Constitution, and as quickly as possible.

Many people of faith are disappointed and discouraged.

Defeat is often only the prelude to an even greater victory. Our country has overcome tyranny before and we must do it again.

Over the next 7 months, we will be preparing for the November elections.

Any politician who supported this bill must pay a price. And that price is ultimately paid at the ballot box.

The backers of this health care bill never gave up. They fought for nearly a year against public opinion, and wore down their opponents until they got what they wanted.

We must resolve to do the same.

Remember what happened last night.

Remember how you feel right now.

November will be here before you know it.

We must fight for our freedoms in the ballot box this November!!
If your congressmen voted AYE (yes), let them know that you are upset with how they voted and that they will pay for it in Novemeber - when we vote them out!!
Here's A letter below I sent to my congressman this morning:

March 22, 2010

To Rep. Brian Baird:

Last year, you voted against the Democrats’ trillion dollar government-run health care experiment, because it would raise premiums, increase costs and slash Medicare.

The senate version also raises our premiums and increases cost and slashes Medicare!!!

According to the CBO, by 2016, the cheapest family health care plan that Americans will be required to buy under the law will cost $12,000 per year. The average family plan will cost $15,200. A family of four making $88,201 per year—or more than 400 percent of the poverty level—will not receive any federal subsidy to purchase such a plan. They will pay taxes, however, to subsidize the health care purchases of people earning less than 400 percent of poverty.

Based on the CBO findings, trillion dollar government-run healthcare bills are bad for our economy. They are bad for our healthcare system. And they are morally wrong in that the leading versions force pro-life citizens to fund and support abortion. The Executive Order fix is a band-aid solution that fails to solve the fundamental problems in this bill, and can be repealed at any time, for any reason, by the president or future presidents.


This is the first time in the history of the country that the federal government has ever ordered American citizens to buy any good or service. If the federal government can constitutionally force individuals to buy health insurance, then there isn’t anything the federal government can not force individuals to do. Where in the Constitution does it authorize the federal government to force people to buy health insurance? Our freedoms are being stripped away by the very representatives we have chosen who are suppose to fight for us. You have betrayed us.

We needed true reform not socialized, abortion funded “health” care? We needed to start over with a plan that’s based on the Constitution, considerate of moral concerns and with far less government intrusion. This new law will accelerate Washington's intrusion into our most personal and private decisions. The government is now the paymaster of, has full sweeping regulatory authority over, the U.S. health care industry which represents one-sixth of the U.S. economy. And how has the government done in the past with running Medicare? Medicaid, is also an unpopular and overextended welfare program that already rations care. According to the Treasury Department the Medicare system faces about $37 trillion in unfunded liabilities. This bill will also be a fiscal disaster.

I am deeply disgusted by the majority party’s insistence on pushing it against the clear will of the American people. Large majorities of Americans oppose this legislation because it offends the historic American dedication to the principle of self-government The will of the people was spat upon last night as government takeover of healthcare was shoved and rammed down our throats. This terrible bill is not about health care. It is a massive and mandatory new welfare program that will ensnare middle-class and middle-aged Americans in dependency on the federal government for a vital element of their lives.

I guess now that you are not running for re-election, and have voted for this terrible bill; you have decided that YOU have stopped fighting for Washington State and YOU will be forever remembered as the Congressman who sold-out his constituents in the ninth-inning for Team Obama.

I am so disgusted with you. You have given away our freedom.

Urgent Call Your Representatives!!!

Forgive me for not posting more... I'm madly reading about everything that is happening, but unable to blog or comment much lately... with a new baby and homeschooling 4 other children, I can't seem to squeeze in time to blog much lately.

Please contact your congressmen (phone, email, fax) and let them know that you OPPOSE the Senate health care bill. The Senate Version includes a taxpayer-funded abortion mandate. Our tax dollars should not be used for a murderous act.

I oppose any plan that includes a so called "public option" which is an individual mandate to purchase health insurance that takes away our right to choose.

I am so disgusted over the overt manipulation and lack of integrity being show by this administration and Congress in continuing to ram any version of ObamaCare through. Any such bill will be devastating to our freedoms, our economy, and our families. It is a government takeover our health care system and dramatically increase the reach and size of the federal government. A trillion dollar government-run healthcare bill will be bad for our economy, bad for our healthcare system, and morally wrong in that it forces pro-life citizens to fund and support abortion.

American people want less government - not more!!
Contact your Representatives Today!!

On a lighter note - here some youtubes that I just watch and had to share:
