Just Who Do They Think They Are Working For?

“I’m disappointed of course because I really hoped that we could have gotten a bill out of here by the end of this month,” said Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., and chairman of one of the three committees at work on the measure.

“The issue is critical. Whether we do it at the end of July or not, I don’t think that’s critical except the perception in terms that the Congress didn’t respond to the request of the president.”

Didn’t respond to the request of the president? Last time I checked, the members of the House and the Senate, as well as the president, work for us. And, the last time I checked, the majority of American citizens don’t want this healthcare fiasco. Speaking of “American citizens”, I understand that a minimum of 12 million of the 45 million uninsured (a squirrely number unto itself) that Obama continually references as the ones who need coverage aren’t American Citizens, they’re illegal immigrants. It’s bad enough that the liberals try to sweep under the rug the amount of freebies these freeloaders get right now without any legislation. I guess now they want to make it more formal. But no matter. Most Americans probably won’t know about this thanks to the Franking Commission. The Franking Commission is supposed to be a bipartisan commission on Congressional Mailing Standards. Instead, they are acting as a censorship machine. They have started demanding to Congresspeople, who want to expose the truth to their constituents about this horrible healthcare legislation, that they omit graphics and language that might make the American people learn more about it and actually question it. If the Congresspeople don’t follow their orders, the government refuses to pay for the mailing. Elections truly have consequences. Like representatives who don’t even believe in reading the bill, such as Bill Conyers (D-Mich), who said, “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?” Way to stick it to us! Speaking of not reading…if no one is reading the thing, who’s writing it?
