Fight. Fight. Fight.
Yesterday (12.15.09) a citizen’s rally was held at the Capitol protesting passage of the health care bill. Michele Bachman and Laura Ingraham were among the featured speakers.
Today, Senator Tom Coburn, Republican from Oklahoma and medical doctor, has called for the clerk to read in its entirety an amendment on the floor of the Senate, which is in progress now. It started about 12:00 p.m. on 12.16.09 and it’s 1:39 now. I don’t know how long it will take to read the amendment presented by Bernie Sanders (the only admitted socialist in the Senate, more than 700 pages. Good. And I hear they may require the reading of the whole health care bill, over 9000 pages? Good, again. Fight. Slow it down. Stop it. Start over.
Tune in to SPAN to hear the reading.
See below a video from the Code Red Rally from yesterday:
“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
