I find most ironic that on the day before Christ's birth the Democrats and our own Darlin' Claire will write into law the federal financing of abortion. Given the Democratic Party's inability to read a simple statement such as the Second Amendment and understand its meaning, perhaps, it is perfectly natural they misunderstood Christ's statement, "Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven." But let's be charitable toward the Democratic Party and say they just don't understand that Christ meant children should be loved and not murdered while yet unborn. They just don't understand that to the word, "suffer," there is more than one meaning.
A few brief weeks ago Darlin' Claire was on national television proclaiming she would not vote for Obamacare if it added to the deficit. The CBO, Congressional Budget Office, brought forth at Harry Reid's direction a cost accounting that showed, lo and behold, we can insure twenty or thirty million more people and save money too! This was wildly proclaimed across the nation by all the usual suspects, ABC, NBC, New York Times etc... and then the next day the CBO said, "Oops. We counted the half trillion dollar cuts in Medicare twice so there will not be a savings after all." Claire knew that before she voted.
Get ready, folks, for a surge in taxes to begin the instant Obamacare is signed but not for "benefits" that will not go into effect until 2014. I wonder what will happen to all those new taxes before they have to be spent on Obamacare. Surely the Democrats will save the money in a "lock box" and not spend the money as fast as it comes in, won't they? If you believe the money will be put aside and saved contact me immediately about purchasing a bridge I own in Brooklyn.
Polling of Missourians shows anywhere from 60 to 70 percent of Missourians are opposed to Obamacare, but Claire McCaskill voted for it. Whom does she represent? Certainly not me or a vast majority of Missourians. She did, according to several reports, take care of one Missourian, her husband. Her husband's nursing homes will get $3,000,000 from Obamacare.I am shocked! --a Democratic politician, feathering her own nest at the expense of the American taxpayer? When did that ever happen before?
For the Liberals waiting to pounce on me as a typical hard hearted Conservative unwilling to help the unfortunate read the following:
Conservatives know charity given to the unfortunate is a moral obligation determined by each person's conscience. There is no moral superiority, no moral imperative, to force citizens at gun point to give up their hard earned money. Liberals, if you want to help the unfortunate buy health insurance for everyone with your own checkbook.
