Sarah Palin: With a Stiff Spine America Must Stand Against Obamacare

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 14, 2010

Complete transcript of Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

With a Stiff Spine America Must Stand Against Obamacare

Today at 11:24am

If Senator Reid, Speaker Pelosi, and President Obama get their way, soon our country will be changed forever. Using every partisan parliamentary trick in the book (including some they invented just last week), Washington’s Left intends to ram through their takeover of our health care system regardless of the consequences.

The latest twists and turns in the Obamacare drama seem almost surreal. One minute the Democrat leadership is trying to amend a bill before the president has even signed it into law, and the next minute they’re trying to draft a new rule that will allow the House to “deem” a bill passed without actually voting on it! They’re determined to use the Senate reconciliation process as a parliamentary trick to bypass the regular voting procedure (and by the way, to add insult to injury, they’re now going to ram through federalization of America’s student loan industry with this same reconciliation vote). Is there any other wildly unpopular legislation they’d also like to sneak in? Perhaps the anti-energy-independence policy “Cap and Tax” (aka Cap and Trade) is next?

And make no mistake, the Obamacare bill is wildly unpopular. The Democrats’ own pollsters warn of an “unmitigated disaster” for them in November if they don’t abandon their plan and start over with real incremental health care reform. Incredibly, at this point, they don’t seem to care. Speaker Pelosi thinks Congress must pass the bill so that the American people can then “find out what’s in it.” We know what’s in it. We don’t want it. The Democrats will take short-term electoral losses in exchange for long-term radical change of the United States of America. They assume we’ll come to accept this new intrusion of government once we’re stuck with it. That’s why we can’t concede this battle. Americans must stiffen our spines and stand against this action that violates the will of the people with centralized government mandates and crippling costs.

Republicans in Congress are holding the line, and some Democrats are standing with them. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) said he won’t vote for the Senate bill if federal funding of abortion is included. Last Friday, he told National Review Onlinethat some Democrats have told him that if abortions aren’t covered in Obamacare then “more children will be born, and therefore it will cost us millions more…Money is their hang-up. Is this how we now value life in America?” As I wrote in my first post on this topic, human rights and human dignity must be at the center of any health care discussion. Government health care will not reduce the cost of medical care; it will simply refuse to pay it. And who will get left behind when they have to ration care to save money?

Please ask yourself: who will be left behind? And who will decide – what kind of panel will decide – who receives the health care that government will obviously have to ration?

There’s a great deal of pressure being put on Stupak’s pro-life Democrats. They’re already dwindling in number. Their party is threatening them, and so are powerful SEIU labor union bosses. The Democrats respecting the sanctity of life have every incentive to buckle under the pressure, so they need to know that we’ll support them if they do the right thing and vote no on Obamacare.

Please take the time to get involved in the debate this week. There are many grassroots efforts under way. There will be a march on Washington on Tuesday, March 16th (see here for details). Rep. Michele Bachmann has a “Kill the Bill” online petition that you can sign here. Most importantly, contact members of Congress and offer your support if they do the right thing.

We know we’ll beat them at the ballot box, but we have to kill this bill before November. This is the final push. We must stand up and stand together one last time to insist on true market-oriented, patient-centered health care reform that reflects America’s values and the will of the people.

Gov Palin Electrifies Tulsa

Posted by Ron Devito on March 14, 2010

Video retrieved from KTUL

Governor Palin electrified the crowd of over 5,000 at the Tulsa, OK Convention Center, at the Take Back our Country Tour (Flasch, 2010, ¶1-3). “Oklahoma, do you like your freedom?” she asked (Phillips, 2010, ¶5).

Talk show host Glenn Beck started the show, asking, “Who are we as a nation? We need to change our course right now” (Phillips, 2010, ¶3).

Governor Palin said Palin said “expanded government and growth in federal spending will hurt the country.” (Berg, 2010, ¶3).

Analysis

As of this writing, only fragments of information are available pertaining to the Tulsa, OK speech, but it may have been similar to her speech at the Lincoln Day fund-raiser in Florida the night before. There, she said,

“Democrats and President Obama are speaking down to Americans, rather than listening to their genuine concerns. These days, the left lectures us, and they apologize for us, and they mock, and they spent the better part of a year talking down to us…Then they tell us that Americans would learn to like their programs if only we were smart enough to understand them” (ReagantoPalin, 2010, ¶2).

To rousing applause, Palin roared, “Well I’ve got news for them. We understand plenty. We know what they’re trying to do. … We don’t like it. We don’t want European-style ObamaCare. We want a system that reflects our values, and our principles, and Americans’ love of freedom. We want solutions that are uniquely American.” Further emphasizing her point, Governor Palin noted, “Our best ideas are not the ones we import from other countries” (ReagantoPalin, 2010, ¶3).

Regan to Palin wrote, “To many in the audience it appeared Palin was readying her stump speech for the Fall 2010 campaign and beyond to 2012” (ReagantoPalin, 2010, ¶4). We share in that site’s sentiment that Gov. Palin is Ronald Reagan’s successor. Could her series of hard-hitting speeches be preparation to answer a summons to serve? Our vigil is posted….
