November is Coming

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Tomorrow will bring a health care bill vote, and Nancy Pelosi continues to show her true pro-abortion colors. She continues to reveal that she has no interest in the will of the people who have overwhelmingly indicated that we do not want government between us and our doctors. Today she rejected the Stupak abortion solution. Pelosi has no respect for pro-life anybody--not the unborn, not the American people, and not even the colleagues in her own party.

And we already know where President Obama stands on the issue of life. He believes the "when does life begin?" question is "above [his] pay grade." He didn't even vote to provide health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion. Sick! If he can't do right by a defenseless newborn, what in the world do you expect he'll do with you?

These are the people we want in charge of our health care?! God, help us.

According to the Washington Post:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Saturday rejected an offer to hold a separate vote on abortion provisions in the sweeping health-care legislation, setting the stage for the final talks with the last Democratic holdouts.

Pelosi told reporters that she rejected the solution offered by Rep. Bart Stupak (Mich.), the leading antiabortion Democrat who proposed passing separate, strict language that would clarify that no federal funds in the proposed legislation could go toward abortion coverage.

Asked if a vote was coming, Pelosi declared no extra votes would be held to appease antiabortion Democrats or liberals still hopeful for adding their favored causes. "Not on abortion, not on public option, not on single payer, not on anything," Pelosi said. She later added, "The bill is the bill."

Democrats are close to securing the 216 votes needed for a majority when the vote is held Sunday evening, but the last bloc of holdouts are antiabortion Democrats.

Governor Palin has been fighting on behalf of the American people, imploring us to get involved and do everything we can to stop a government takeover of health care.

Earlier today she tweeted:

Shocking new questions re:whether military healthcare plans r protected under Obamacare.How will underpaid troops afford their own purchase?

She followed that up with a link to that very story. Click here to read it.

November is coming, as the governor shared yesterday in her Facebook note, the same note where she asked us to sign the November is Coming petition to let Congress know we mean business. Click here to do so.

In no uncertain terms, tell them:

Dear Member of Congress:

Your vote isn't the only one that counts. November is coming and you can't hide from the voters. Corrupt backroom deals are driving a government takeover of our health care, and I don't like it. If you vote YES on the health care bill, I will vote NO on you in the next election.

Gov Palin: ObamaCare Product of Obama's Inexperience

Video Retrieved from Fox News: On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.

Governor Palin acknowledged that some fixes are needed to the existing health care system: the ability to purchase insurance across state lines, tort reform and state rather than federal involvement. "This comprehensive takeover of the health care system that the private sector can run better than the government is nonsensical and it is not supported by the public. It is very frustrating to watch this process happen to us," Gov. Palin said.

When asked about how the bill failed to be bi-partisan, Gov. Palin said it was absolutely a broken campaign promise by Obama. Greta Van Susteren had noted that over 100,000 people were calling the Congressional switchboard every hour.

Obama Has no Prior Executive Experience

Gov. Palin cut to a root cause of the problem with Obama and his methods:

"It really reflects the lack of experience of President Obama's, which it was warned about during the campaign - that candidate Obama did not have executive experience; he hasn't been an administrator or manager of anything, so to jump into this huge, hugely important responsible position as President of the United States without the experience to know how to work across party lines and to know how to administer and to manage a team to get policy through that makes sense and is supported by the people - it's a bit over his head if you will and things are not going well, and the public is really voicing their frustration. That's what you mentioned in the 100,000 plus calls that are choking up Congress' switchboard right now. That's the voice of the people and their frustration," Gov. Palin said.

Digging In Leads to Corruption and Vote Buying

Gov Palin explained that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) were dug into their positions with no way of backtracking. The result has been all manner of corruption, influence peddling and vote buying. "There is no other way to get this thing rammed through than to purchase the votes of some of these fence sitters," she said.

How to Gain the Support of Those Who Did Not Vote for You

"There has to be that talent or gift incorporated within you as an administrator to be diplomatic and to compromise when necessary. President Obama, and Speaker Pelosi and Harry Reid haven't been able to compromise at all. They haven't invited the Republicans in to hear their broad-based incremental type support for some of the steps that need to be taken to reform health care. They haven't listened to the Republicans on this. They've dug their heels in and that's caused this train wreck that's about to happen."

What about the Un-Insured?

"We need more health care providers for one. There are steps that states can take to [provide incentives] for providers to come. Let the states take control of some of the health care fixes that we have to see instead of the federal government thinking it needs to come in and take over." Gov. Palin delineated the steps that Republicans have introduced which have been ignored, such as the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines.

"This comprehensive take over of health care is I think the absolute worst way that we can ever imagine trying to fix the things that are broken with health care in America," Gov. Palin said.

What About Yes Votes?

Gov. Palin predicted that those in Congress who vote "yes" on ObamaCare are highly likely to lose their seats in November. She also said that most "yes" votes are influenced by vote buying and sweetheart deals.

Citizen Activism

Greta Van Susteren noted that citizens appeared to be more politically active and involved now. Gov. Palin responded that many of her friends who ordinarily are independent and not politically involved are very concerned about federal takeover and control over something that "involves such an important aspect of our lives."

"The private sector, our businesses, our families and the states can do a better job," Gov. Palin said.

Further, Gov. Palin said that even those who vote "no" but who do not voice opposition to ObamaCare will likely be subject to contested primaries.
