December 22, 2009
At 1 a.m. on December 21, 2009, in the dark of night, the first cloture vote was taken on H.R. 3590, Senator Harry Reid's Obama Deathcare Bill.

How your Senator voted on cloture December 21, 2009, in the middle of the night, can be found here and also accessible under "All Congressional Actions with Amendments" when H.R. 3590 is put in the search slot on the main page of thomas.loc.gov. The vote was all Democrats (60) voting "yes" and all Republicans (40) voting "no".
You will note that this bill, voted on by the Senate, is not a Senate bill; it is a House bill. How can it be that a House bill was used to introduce language written by the Senate?
A House bill was used, its language stricken and substituted by Senator Reid and his co-conspirators, because the Senate cannot, constitutionally, introduce a bill that appropriates money.
As such, the Senate's way of circumventing this is to take a House bill, sent to the Senate after House passage, and strike the language and introduce language written by Senators.
Is this constitutional? Let's put it this way, that was not what was intended when the Constitution was written. But then, the Constitution, in the words of John Adams, was written for a moral and religious people; being wholly inadequate for people who have no morals, no conscience and certainly no principles or standards; who believe right and wrong are situational, pliant to whatever their agenda is.
That pretty much covers those currently "elected" to serve the people in Washington DC. Their sole purpose is to circumvent what the Constitution says in pursuit of their own unconstitutional agenda. To that end, what the Constitution requires is just something to be ignored. We've seen this happen time and again, including on January 8, 2009, when the Senate and House, in contravention to Article II, Section I, Clause 5, United States Constitution, certified the election of an illegal alien as president.
It is telling, indeed, that Senator Harry Reid scheduled the vote on H.R. 3590 for the middle of the night, being the unethical, amoral coward that he is. Quite obviously, Reid believed this middle of the night vote would keep Senators from incurring the ire of the 70% of Americans who oppose Obama Deathcare.
Calls to the Capital Hill Switchboard, beginning at 12 p.m EST approximate, resulted in the caller being 1) hung up on; 2) forwarded to their Senator's voice mail which was either full or shut off; or 3) forwarded to a dead-end recording. The switchboard refused to forward calls to the Senate floor and refused to get messages to Senators. Quite obviously, this was deliberate, the ultimate in arrogance because Senators, knowing that 70% of the American people do not want the Obama Deathcare Bill, think they can cram it down our throats, irrespective.
Telling also, is that all 2,076 pages of H.R. 3590, was not posted in the form of H.R. 3590 but rather as Senate Amendment 2786, cosponsored by Baucus (D-MT), Dodd (D-CT) and Harkin (D-IA).
Want to wager on how many of the Senators have actually read that 2,076 page amendment to know what is in it?
Senators Patty Murray (D-WA) and Maria Cantwell (D-WA), being the good little Marxist Obamanoids that they are, went along like the good little sheep that they are, and voted for cloture on H.R. 3590; even though the only people in Washington State who want government run healthcare are the multitude of illegal aliens to whom both Murray and Cantwell pander, and the never-do-wells who, because of their own poor choices, do not have health care coverage and want someone else to pay for their poor choices. Those types always vote for people with no morals, no principles and not values who believe, as Marxists do, that wealth should be redistributed from those who have made good and wise choices to those who have made poor and detrimental choices.
Murray and Cantwell see absolutely nothing wrong with 70% of Washingtonians working and paying taxes so the other 30% who don't work can live off the backs of those who do work. That's called "being empathetic" in Murray's and Cantwell's view.
Of course, at the same time, Murray and Cantwell aren't willing to give up their millions to the cause; just the taxpayer's hard-earned wages.
To date, Senator Patty Murray has amassed a campaign war chest of close to a $1,000,000. Interestingly, her campaign war chest comes from four sources that should be of note, particularly in this instance, to every Washingtonian: political action committees (PAC's) outside Washington State, pharmaceutical companies, medical groups, and insurance companies.
While it's bad enough that Murray is obviously bought and paid for (isn't that what a whore is?) by PAC's outside Washington State, it is equally obvious that while Murray has worked diligently to convince the people of Washington State that her stand on the Obama Deathcare Bill was in the best interests of the people of Washington State, to whom Murray was and really is beholden is the pharmaceutical companies, medical groups and insurance companies who stand to increase their profits under the Obama Deathcare Bill at the expense of Washington residents.
Who wins is the very companies, groups and organizations that Murray has railed against; who loses are the people of Washington State, in the loss of health-care benefits and mediocre care that will result, and in the increase in taxes and healthcare premiums.
Senator Patty Murray comes up for re-election in 2010. She has adamantly refused to listen to the majority of the people of Washington State who told her to vote against H.R. 3590.
It's time Patty Murray becomes unemployed. Let's make it happen.
If your Senator comes up for election in 2010 and voted for the Obama Deathcare Bill, start working now to make sure he/she does not get re-elected.
Work to elect people, both Senate and House, who will pledge to repeal every illegal and unconstitutional bill that has been passed since the Oval Office was seized by the Marxist illegal alien usurper, Also Known As (AKA) Barack Hussein Obama.
Senator Whitehouse (D-RI) made the following comments, aimed at those who oppose the Obama Deathcare Bill, "They are desperate to break this president. They have ardent supporters who are nearly hysterical at the very election of President Barack Obama. The birthers, the fanatics, the people running around in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups, it is unbearable to them that President Barack Obama should exist. That is one powerful reason. It is not the only one.”
Aryan support groups are neo-Nazi's. Nazi is another name for national socialism which finds its roots in Marxism, the religion of AKA and obviously, Whitehouse also. Quite obviously, Whitehouse is attempting to paint himself a patriot by smearing those with whom he is most likely to associate.
Senator Whitehouse's comments make it apparent just how far out of touch with the American people he is; just how little he understands the Constitution and Bill of Rights; just how supercilious he is toward the American people and the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

One has to wonder if Senator Whitehouse will be found hiding under his bed, shaking like a leaf, when he's thrown out of office by those whom he has unjustly smeared due to his treasonous support of the Marxist illegal alien usurper and his agenda.
The Revolution began at 1 a.m. on December 21st. Let's send the treasonous Marxists and their ilk packing. Let's take back our country, our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.
