It seems that Speaker Pelosi got what she wanted - more of our money to spend. This bill contains many new taxs and eleimnates exemptions we used to have. http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/pelosi_heathcare_taxes/2009/11/08/283423.html?s=al&promo_code=905C-1 It also gives the IRS the power to deny legal tax deductions to people based on what the IRS thinks. Codification of the “Economic Substance Doctrine” (Page 349): Empowers the IRS to disallow a perfectly legal tax deduction or other tax relief merely because the IRS deems that the motive of the taxpayer was not primarily business-related. This bill is not about Health Care but about the government grabbing as much power as they can. This has to be stopped in the US Senate.

I was surprised by the vote. I really thought there was some momentum happening against it. It seems so many people are against it. I'm not sure where they all are and if they're voicing their choice. This is where we keep going. It's so combersome. Someone should make a law that laws can only be made about one thing at a time. Like God did. He was pretty good at it: Have NO other gods besides Me. Then: Thou shalt not commit murder. One at a time. Simple to read, no questions about His intent. Right? We could learn something from the Ten Commandments: How to write straightforward laws that are easy for everyone to understand.

Ron Paul said he would not sign a bill over 1 page and the author of the Bill must show the specifice section of the the Constitution that gives the Government the power to make such a law. We need laws that are clear and simple to read.

Grabbing power is the only reason for this bill... as well as the proposed Cap and Trade, and everything else the liberals want to do in their attempt to force us into Socialism. The liberals have been trying to get this type of Socialized Healthcare passed for the last 65 years, and up to now the American people have been to smart for them. You would have thought that they would have gotten the message after Hillarycare bombed, but they just keep pushing. If the Senate passes this, then we are going to have to take direct action, and get our country back from these anti-American lunatics.

I like your quote on your profile. What would direct action be AFTER it's passed? We need to do what we can NOW. Call, send emails, sign petitions. Voice your Choice.... or you may not have one. (Interresting that most people define "choice" as "what I think is best for you")
