"a plotted revolt or attempt to overthrow a government, esp. one that depends upon suddenness and speed."
How can we describe what is now happening any more clearly? In every poll that has been taken (including the Liberal CNN), the American people have said, overwhelmingly, that they do not want this Health Care bill.
Yet, the President and his sycophants in Congress are determined to override the wishes of the people and immediately force this monstrosity into law, by whatever means necessary. Is that not the very definition of, at the very least, a partial "putsch"?
Every piece of bad legislation (and there have been many) that this Congress, and this President have enacted all had the same element of "urgency" which precluded careful deliberation. The result has been a doubling of the National Debt in the span of just one year, with no real improvement in the economy, or the unemployment rate. Despite hundreds of billions spent on "Stimulus" we remain unstimulated. Even the "President's Men" have concluded that unemployment will remain "elevated" for the balance of the year.
As for Obama, he claims that with this Health Care Plan in place, employer premiums would fall as much as "3.000%". yes, you read that right; THREE THOUSAND PERCENT!
In his own words:
In he an idiot, or does he think we are?
The back room deals, procedural tricks, arm twisting, lies and, most importantly, the abject disregard of the people's wishes on the part of the President and his cronies is disgraceful and breathtakingly arrogant. Alas, this has been a pattern that has been followed throughout the short life of this administration.
We, as a nation, made a terrible mistake in November, 2008, and we are now paying the price.
