The House passed it

Gun Owners of America email:

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

It would have been nice if we were celebrating victory on ObamaCare today -- and could turn our attention to other issues.

This was not to be, however, thanks to House Democrats who campaigned as "moderates," but in the end, danced at the end of Nancy Pelosi's strings.

Saturday, the House passed ObamaCare by a 220-215 vote. The bill now goes to the Senate, where South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham -- hardly a staunch conservative -- has pronounced it "dead on arrival."

We remain convinced that we can and will kill ObamaCare, but only if the grassroots keep the pressure on.

ACTION: Write your Representative. Thank him -- or reprimand him -- for his vote on ObamaCare....


It's now or never, I guess. I suppose harassing our senators now is in order.

Isn't it about time you all signed up for the GOA's email updates on your own anyhow?

OK, one wee teensy tiny little question - what's so terrible about millions of people suddenly being able to afford health care? And what does it have to do with Gunowners of America anyway? (right, I guess that's two)

It's all so sad, and we can see from this that God's return is coming up fast.

I even heard that homeschooling would be outlawed if this was passed.

My private school will also go down the tubes if this is passed.

I will pray, pray, and pray, if it is the Lord's will that the Senate will not pass it.

christian soldier: Thank you sir! Please continue to read and visit.

duva: Well, countless Americans have been irate about it, so this isn't exactly the will of the people for one...or two, the federal government has no right to take over our health care...or three, the possibility of death panels, etc. But if you want the best arguments against Obamacare I would ask that you investigate my links, etc. I am surely not the most knowledgeable in this area.

As to the second question, Obamacare is very clearly also a back-door attempt at gun control. People with firearms in their homes may lose coverage (which also means that firearm ownership will have to be reported).

duva: It has been estimatead that health care represents 20% of the US economy. If Obama's plan takes over healthcare, that means that the government would control 20% of the economy. Socialism, Communism, anyone??

I would say I'm pretty knowledgeable in this area, living in a country where we do have public health care ;)

"or three, the possibility of death panels"

I've heard of those claims too, what exactly are the grounds for those assumptions? Almost all industrialized countries but the USA have public health care and yet those death panels are unheard of...

Courtney:

There's no use trying to scare me with socialism, I'm from Sweden and know about the good side of it ;)
