I’ll Have To Disagree…
A Twitter Response To
Oh. I will not be able to address those statements in 140 characters.
There are several things in your statements that I certainly disagree with, are not factually correct, and I find it hard to find any truth in them at all. So, I’m guessing we’ll just have to agree to disagree, as you apparently saw & see things very differently. Either you simply passed that along from someone else, or saw/remember things widely different from what actually happened. However, I will try to help you see #Truth by addressing a couple of them.
The Constitutionality of Obamacare is still yet to be seen, as the SCOTUS only reviewed the ‘tax’/’penalty’ aspect (which they changed the argument for, and which is revenue generating, which is required by law to originate in the House).
You said that you watched it go from passage in the House, then off to the Senate?….
It was introduced in the House as the
“Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of
2009″(First Time Home Buyer Credit For Service
Members and “accelerated” certain estimated
corporate income tax payments) (H.R. 3590) by
Charles Rangel (D–NY) on September 17, 2009

A completely different ‘animal’ to what the Senate passed, the House passed on October 8, 2009
Then, on Nov. 18, 2009, Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada introduced in the U.S. Senate what President Obama later signed as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. On that same day, Reid issued a press release titled “Reid Unveils Senate Health Care Bill.”A month later, he issued a second press release, titled, “Reid Unveils Final Senate Health Care Bill.”
The Senate gutted the Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009 and inserted the PPACA instead, which the Senate then passed as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” on December 24, 2009 (revenue generating, & no longer an amendment.?!)
March 2010, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
uttered her most infamous 16 words: “But we
have to pass the [Senate healthcare] bill so
that you can find out what’s in it.”
Fourteen days later, President Obama signed
the Affordable Care Act into law, the self-
described Senate Health Care Bill having
passed the House of Representatives without a
single Republican vote. This is a far cry from almost a year.
When Speaker Pelosi was later asked to defend
her infamous remark, she quipped, “It’s
because we didn’t have a Senate bill . . . We
were urging the Senate to pass a bill.”
Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t the Gang of 8 work on immigration. 😉
You have watched the videos, and read the statements of Gruber right? If not, I would suggest that you take the time to do so. Especially in when he said that the healthcare law would not be affordable, that it had to be worded in such a way as to confuse the CBO, and that they would have to rely on the stupidity of the American people for it to pass.
This is just ‘some’ of how the ‘A’CA was done behind closed doors.
Obamacare Was Never About Healthcare, It Is About Control
In a bizarre statement, US Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said that, “As you know, we’re facing the end of the Western Civilization by having a market-based strategy. We are bringing Western Civilization to its knees by selling private insurance plans on a website where people can pick and choose.” At face value, this could imply any number of things including a bold-faced admission that ObamaCare is the end of the Western Civilization health care system.
