The Pelosi Swindle is explained;fines for no ins 2% annual income
There are two articles today in the NY Times that address the issues of the health care reform as schemed in a different perspective than their usual 'pump up the democratic party' tone. The one article named "Procedural Maneuvering and Public Opinion' is a little skewed I think, because I think the American public [including me] care very much if and how they are swindled.
That deem and pass trick is roughly equivalent to you walking into a car dealership to look at the new cars and the salesman saying to you because you walked in the door, we 'deem' you to have entered into a contract with us and now you owe us money. That sort of trick or maneuver as NY Times tries to label it, would not be acceptable in any other legal transaction, nor in any other form of commercial exchange for example for real estate purchases. To vote on a brief rules proposal does not mean the vote carries forward on every other proposal before the houses of Congress simultaneously. The Constitution says that both houses have to pass /agree on/vote on in the affirmative EVERY bill that becomes law. If they don't agree, don't vote yea, don't vote at all, the resolution/bill does not become law. That is not procedural maneuvering but the law and the intent/purpose of having two houses of Congress--so the people in this nation have lawful and appropriate representation.
The other article tells the tricks and 'maneuvering' involved to try to trick the representatives in Congress in voting yea:
Douglas Holtz-Eakin, President of the American Action Forum explains the 'creative' financing of the Obama-Pelosi
swindle called health care reform in this article in the NY Times today:
I quote from that article:
Removing the unrealistic annual Medicare savings ($463 billion)
and the stolen annual revenues from Social Security and long-term care
insurance ($123 billion), and adding in the annual spending that so
far is not accounted for ($114 billion) quickly generates additional
deficits of $562 billion in the first 10 years. And the nation would
be on the hook for two more entitlement programs rapidly expanding
as far as the eye can see.
The bottom line is that Congress would spend a lot more; steal funds
from education, Social Security and long-term care to cover the gap;
and promise that future Congresses will make up for it by taxing more
and spending less. "
It is an excellent clear article that puts into words what Americans
know in their heart to be true--that robbing from one entitlement to
create a new unfunded entitlement is insanity, and it is ruinous to the
Please read the entire article because it explains the financial tricks
that Pelosi and Obama are using to spin their web of deceit.

Update at 1118 AM after reading some more:
This quote of Matt Leffingwell spokesman for republican Congress woman Kay Granger of Texas' s 12th Congressional District said:
"He cited a piece of is the legislation that gives “expanded power of
the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS could be able to hire 16,000
addition agents, auditors and other workers to enforce the new taxes
and penalties. This is something we’re just learning about.
These agents would verify [citizens] have acceptable health care
coverage and the IRS could fine you up to $2,250, or 2 percent of
your income, whichever is greater,” he added. “Most people don’t
know what’s in this legislation.”
This quote from this article:
Of course, you know that I am opposed to it regardless of how it is financed because it is intended to expand abortion services. It is a heinous sin against GOD who wrote "Thou shalt not kill' [Exodus 20:13] and it is a crime against humanity, destroying whole entire nations. The plan to depopulate America must be defeated absolutely. I know some of the press is saying the democrats 'have the votes' but if you read their entire article about 4 paragraphs down they say that have not yet secured committments from some legislators so they are conning America . They do not have the votes, they are doing what is called a push-pull the results that the mainstream propaganda presses are trying to accomplish for Obama. They are not reporting the news they are reporting what a few legislators want to happen. They do not have the votes. That is why they are using tricks, deceit, sleight of hand 'creative financing' [robbing from one entitlement ( Social security} to create a new entitlement that this nation cannot afford.
