Congress shoving two huge bills down our throats

This week on Capitol Hill, Nancy Pelosi is rushing two bills that change the United States in monumental proportions. First, early this week, and Obama's infomercial on Wednesday, was the issue of healthcare reform. This will cost of 1 trillion dollars and it will still leave over 30 million Americans uninsured according to the CBO. While Healthcare costs are enormous, and SOME reform should be needed, HOWEVER, Government needs to stay out of the industry and only give a tax credit so American's can pay for their insurance. In Canada, it takes on average over 9 hours IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM to receive treatment, meanwhile it is less than 1 hour in America. It can also take weeks if not months to see a specialist in Canada too.

Also, if you don't think Politicians want the "one pay" system practically the Canadian system or everyone being on a system like Medicaid, watch this video. Simply shocking.


The other bill which the House is voting on friday is Cap and Trade, which would be the largest tax increase in America's History. Take that "95% of Americans will not see their taxes raised, in fact expect a tax cut" an now consider it a lie, because 100% of Americans are about to see a tax increase.

In this bill, it is supposed to enabled the government to "cap" carbon emissions, but it's more than just that. A more proper name would be "Cap and Tax." This bill would cost the average family  $1,870 and would eventually rise to $6,800 for the average family. According to the Wall Street Journal.

Gas Prices, Electric Bills, would nearly double and some could even rise 90%.  According to the Glenn Beck Program, all of this, in order to offset carbon emissions that would lower the temperature by 2/10 of a degree by 2100.

Everyone needs to contact their senators, representatives, and tell your opinion on these issues. To reach them by phone, contact the Congressional switchboard at (202) 224-3121. DO NOT CONTACT via e-mail or letter, letters can take 3 weeks to even get to the office of your senator/representative, and most do not even read their e-mails. If you still want to write to your Representative and Senators do it by Fax, probably the most effective way to contact them.
