ObamaCare Is Not Just Coming, It's Here

I realize many republicans and conservatives are jumping for joy over the prospects of a republican landslide next November, as they truly believe that a party just voted out of congressional power a mere four years ago is going to somehow be swept back in by voters who are fearful of Obama and his atrocious policies, and all is going to be right with the world.

Speaking purely for myself, I am not at all convinced that is going to happen, and for a whole lot of reasons I won't get into just yet.

For now, I will only say that any victory by the republicans that falls short of the numbers required to override presidential vetoes in both houses of congress will be a decidedly hollow one, as the next congress can start sending up repeal after repeal, only to see them be hit with the dreaded veto pen each time one lands on Obama's desk.

As I have explained before, I believe this nation is currently under a rapidly advancing communist coup, which is anchored around two main linchpins: ObamaCare and Cap & Trade - ObamaCare because it will essentially mean handing control of our individual bodies over to the federal government, and Cap & Trade because it will similarly hand over control of most everything else in our lives.

I firmly believe that if both of these hideous pieces of legislation become law that America, as we know it, is finished.

Many assume, and I believe falsely, that ObamCare is in trouble. Sorry, but the crucial vote regarding that freedom-destroying piece of legislation occurred this past Christmas Eve, and the measure managed to pass. The narrow margin by which it did so is now irrelevant.

As for Cap & Trade, that can now be implemented without further congressional approval, as the EPA has the authority to bring it to fruition, and the Obama administration has already threatened to let them do it.

Unconstitutional you say? Tough shit, as you should have been concerned about that back when the EPA was being proposed and was thus given powers all out of proportion to what the authors of our Constitution ever envisioned.

I believe ObamaCare, or as I like to call it, CommieCare, is going to be signed into law without any further votes taking place in congress.

Why? Because if the coup that is now under way is to be successful, the federal government must get control of our nation's health care system. The Soviets did it. The North Vietnamese did it. The NORKS did it, as did the Chinese and the Albanians.

Why people think it won't happen here is beyond me.

Just don't hold your breath waiting for another congressional vote on ObamaCare, because I do not believe there will be one:

When the House passed its version, members assumed it would be reconciled with the Senate bill and then sent back to both chambers for final approval, even if by the narrowest of margins.

A GOP win in Massachusetts on Tuesday would likely kill that plan, because Republicans could block Senate action on the reconciled bill.

The newly discussed fallback would require House Democrats to swallow hard and approve the Senate-passed bill without changes. President Barack Obama could sign it into law without another Senate vote needed.

The far left is much too close to pulling off the outright seizure of our private health care system to give it up it now. After all, they have been working toward this moment for over 100 years. Another vote might just kill it, as I am sure even some of the blindest of the congress-critters can now see the pitchforks gathering.

Should CommieCare become law, and I am now convinced it will, the earliest shot the republicans will have at dismantling it will not come around until January of 2013, which is three years from now.

And that is assuming they have been elected in sufficient numbers, as well if they even have the stones to do it.
