Pelosi/Reid/Obama have decided to move forward on the health care bill despite the majority of Americans being against this power grab at controlling 1/6 of the US economy. Pelosi will force a vote in the House this week. The Senate is also expected to use the nuclear option of reconciliation to get it through the Senate. The Senate Parliamentarian will rule if reconciliation is permissible. HOWEVER, Vice President Biden can overrule the Senate Parliamentarian and force reconciliation.
This is not a time to grow weary. Senator Warner and Senator Webb have both expressed concern about using the nuclear option. We must email and call them. This vote is expected late this week or early next week. Richmond Tea Party Patriots are relentless. DON’T GIVE UP!
Here is what I [Jamie Radtke] wrote to Warner and Webb. I know you can put my letter to shame. Show me up and send us your email to firstname.lastname@example.org after you email Warner/Webb. We will post them (without your full name) on our website and Facebook page for everyone to see that this is completely unacceptable!
“Polls consistently show that a majority of Virginians do not want the House or Senate Health Care bill to pass in Congress. Do not vote for this Health Care conference bill. This is a complete violation of our basic rights when you force Virginians to enter into a contract for health insurance. The Virginia General Assembly has passed legislation to thwart this unconstitutional action of Congress. Abide by the wishes of your constituency. A reconciliation vote will absolutely be the last straw for Virginians. We are tired of being ignored. Respect the Constitution and the will of the people. Virginians wait to see how you will vote.”
