Tyrants at Work

Health Care Bill Would Dismantle Basic American Freedoms

Saturday night, November 8, the House passed a healthcare bill that would lead to a massive government takeover of our healthcare system. Never mind that the majority of Americans are against government-run healthcare. Never mind that the healthcare plan would cost over one trillion dollars over the next 10 years. Never mind that the bill would criminalize anyone who didn’t get HC.

Most disturbing however, the Congress, the President and other federal employees won’t be affected because they have their own special healthcare plans.

The actions of the politicians in the House were an outrage. We saw tyranny in action. The liberal members of Congress just gave average Americans the finger. They only care about power, control, and money. It matters little to them what happens to America.

America, it is time to take back our country. It is time to vote out anyone who supports outrageous spending, massive national debt, increased taxes and a weak national security policy. Lois Capps is first on the list.

Next on the list of the far-left Congress is cap-and-trade . We must stop this legislation, which is a scheme and would be the largest tax increase in history.

Stand up and fight, America. Do whatever it takes. America is being dismantled, we are losing our voice, and our basic freedoms are disappearing.-Diana Thorn, Carpinteria
