Although I'm not quite sure why they don't want people to ask legitimate questions about the proposed legislation and how, exactly, it will make health care better or how we can hope to pay for the plan long-term or why we should trust government to administer anything or why Obamacare will suddenly do what no other socialized medical program hasn't been able to accomplish?

But their signs sure are professional...

Professional signs are a true indicator of grassroots.

Especially the ones that carry the party leader's symbol and are printed on professional stock, in the campaign-standard font and color scheme.

The outrage over astroturfing slowly dies away.

"Do this, don't do that, can't you read the signs"

I'll have that song in my head for the rest of the day now.

"Signs, signs, everywhere you go......"

It takes a very steady hand to make these...that's why I recommend legalizing marijuana.

reminds me of something someone once said ...We need a civilian force that is just as powerful, just as well funded as our military....

Would our military turn on the government or the people?

WASHINGTON – In a vote that should send chills up the spine of those satisfied with their current health insurance, Democrats in the Senate Finance Committee today rejected a Republican amendment that would allow Americans to keep their current health care coverage.

Sponsored by U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), the amendment stated that the implementation of the final health care bill would not take place unless the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) was able to certify before Congress that the legislation would not cause more than 1,000,000 Americans to lose their current coverage.

The amendment was rejected 10-13, with all Republican Senators voting in favor and all Democrats voting against.

Notably, the defeat of the Hatch Amendment comes on the same week that the head of the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), Douglas Elmendorf, testified before Congress that seniors would see reduced Medicare benefits under the bill currently in the Finance Committee.

It also came on the same day that various media accounts highlighted the Democrats’ defense of the proposed cuts in the popular Medicare Advantage program that so many senior citizens rely upon for their health care.

“It’s inexplicable that the same Democrats who continue to insist that Americans’ current health care coverage will not be affected by the Democrats’ government-run proposal would then turn around and vote against an amendment that would ensure just that,” National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Amber Wilkerson Marchand said today. “Blanche Lincoln needs to level with her constituents, especially the senior citizens in her state who the head of the CBO said will see deep Medicare cuts in the Democrat proposal: will they get to keep their current health care coverage, and if so, why did she vote against legislation that would ensure such a provision will be included in the final bill?”
