Congressional Turkey of a Bill

Thanksgiving. Twenty pound turkeys. Stuffing and all kinds of trimmings.

Turkey is best when it’s sliced before serving. Then cut into bite-sized pieces before inserting in mouth. Congress is looking to stuff the bird with things they don’t want to read, consume the whole turkey in one big swallow, then pass the gas off on us.

Yesterday the Senate began the turkey season with 60 votes for its two thousand seventy four (2,074) pages of S.1697. It’s difficult enough to imagine our busy Senators taking the time to count the pages, let alone read the words printed on them. As Senator Murkowski (another smart lady from Alaska) said, that 20 1/2-pound pile of the Senate’s 2,074 pages [propaganda] is a turkey of a bill.

Senator Boxer complained of the resolution’s objectors, “Nowhere on their desk do we see their bill. They have no answers, no solutions.” Here’s one. Cut the turkey into reasonable servings. Then cut it again, for bite size pieces. No need to pretend the Congressional Turkey bills are ready to serve. No need to practice gluttony. If it’s not suitable for Congress, it isn’t suitable for US, the citizens.

On Nov 7 the House of Representatives made history by passing HR 3962 at the Request of the President and Elitists who will benefit from the bill. The proposed comprehensive health care reform is historic in that the yeah Votes of Representatives and Senators do not reflect the desire of the constituents who vote for Congressmen to represent them. The Senate is copying the moronity of the House.

Those Representatives and Senators who do not vote for Obama’s health care takeover, or the Congressional turkey of a bill, are to be commended for choosing to represent their constituents, those of US who vote for them. Like Ringo Star said, “Everything government touches turns to crap,” so hands off our health care!

A vote for the proposed Health Care by any of its names represents the intent of Congress to take over the business of insurance and health care, neither of which the Government is set up to do, nor competent in. The gross negligence of promising our grandchildren an insurmountable debt before they are even born is an action not becoming a Congressman.

A greater service the Congress can provide to the people in the districts they represent is to work to fix Medicaid and Medicare; lift restrictions that prohibit interstate health insurance; disconnect employers from individual health care so people can choose what is best for them as individuals; work toward TORT reform to reduce the inflated costs of health care. Mrs Boxer, is this too complicated to understand?

“It is much more important to kill bad bills than to pass good ones.” – Calvin Coolidge

HR 3962 was a bill to kill.
So is the Senate’s version.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    A very well written post and on the money. That being said what was passed last night had nothing to do with health care and the people it was all about exploding deficits, increased taxes, decreasing 500 million dollars to Medi care while at the same time adding 20 million patients. This is not access to care it’s a cruel hoax in the name of a power grab. As this works it’s way through the house and Senate we will see who our elected officials care about. Would you walk the plank for dingy Harry? J.C.

      We don’t like it, do we? Up to you to make sure everyone knows what this really is. 🙂 We can’t wait for the other guy to do it, he’s somewhere else.

    P.S. This is an oxymoron but “Mrs Boxer” is a lying whore. The Republicans put forth at least 5 bills that would have passed but were never entered in to the process because Pelosi held the gavel. Well at least the will have work to fall back on as in the oldest profession in the world. Somebody would have 25 cents and possibly incurable blindness and go for it. J.C.

      Well, talk to your neighbors to get her OUT next year!

    Why don’t they call it Welcome to Socialized Health Care as truth in advertising calls for? Unconstitutional is another thing it could be called. If this turkey passes against the will of the people every congressman that voted for it should be thrown out of office. It is the third bill to be unread by those voting for it and that is reason to see how worthless the Democratic party has become.

      I like that, truth in advertising pertaining to Congress. 🙂
      Maybe the turkey can rest in peace if we can get our congressmen to hear us.

      Boxer said Republicans offered not alternative.

      I’d like to see each item presented as its own bill/resolution number. Guess that’d make it too difficult to hide the rotten stuffing they’re filling the pages with.
      mahalo for your comment!
