Bill introduced to repeal the 22nd Amendment, Remove term limits for President

There is legislation proposed in the house to repeal the 22nd Amendment.  This would remove the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.  This was proposed in January 2009, and was referred to committee in February 2009.  To date no action has been taken on this bill, but the fact that it is out there sitting in committee is FRIGHTENING.

Why most Americans are angry about approval of ObamaCare

In spite of heavy opposition from the citizens from sea to shining sea, the U.S. House of Representatives proceeded to approve the ObamaCare legislation by a vote of 219-212.  The bill was passed without the support of even one Republican.

Yet 34 Democrats joined with Republicans in voting no.

Rarely has any piece legislation so bitterly divided the citizens of this nation.  The clear majority in poll after poll shows that this bill is very unpopular and Americans by and large are very angry that their elected representatives in Congress would even consider such a thing, much less vote in favor of it.

Obamacare’s Achilles Heel

There is an important lesson to be learned about Obamacare, which passed the House last night. It was brought to national attention on February 7th, when President Obama sat down for a Super Bowl interview with Katie Couric. Among the many surprising things he said was this:

Look, I would have loved nothing better than to simply come up with some very elegant, you know, academically approved approach to health care. And didn’t have any kinds of legislative fingerprints on it. And just go ahead and have that passed. But that’s not how it works in our democracy. Unfortunately, what we end up having to do is to do a lot of negotiations with a lot of different people.

Translation: “There’s a rational solution that would not require all this messy politics.”
