To Senator Harry Reid: You Can’t Vote on Something That Doesn’t Exist

There’s fast and loose, then there’s downright unconstitutional.  That’s what we have here with the way Harry Reid and company are playing with the Baucus healthcare bill.  Excuse me, that’s healthcare NOTES.  There is no bill.  They plan to vote on a skeleton of a bill, then fill in the blanks with things that haven’t been approved AFTER THE “BILL” PASSES.  If that sounds to you like a recipe for raping taxpayers, usurping power, and destroying the country, then move to the head of the class.  They plan to fill this thing with all kinds of pork, and rules that will enslave us for generations to come.  We are so close to the edge of the abyss that each of us needs to be filling every e-mail inbox on Capitol Hill, running every fax machine out of paper with our faxes, and clogging every switch board with phone calls.  We can’t go down without a fight.

Subject:  Voting on a Myth

Senator Reid,

I am writing to encourage you to stop the insane pursuit of government run healthcare in which you are currently engaged.  What you are doing by voting on legislation that does not yet exist, only to fill in the blanks later with secret pork, additional taxes, rules that destroy choice, destroy free enterprise, and confiscate American freedom is at the very least underhanded, and more likely unconstitutional.

Mr. Reid, I don’t recall seeing reports of you at town hall meetings this summer listening to your constituents air their displeasure with the performance and policies of you and your colleagues.  Maybe your meetings just didn’t get covered, or perhaps you were like many of your colleagues who didn’t have the courage to face the people who elected you.  The message that you apparently did not hear is that Americans, even those from your home state of Nevada, are tired of not being listened to by those who are supposed to represent us.  We do not want LESS freedom and MORE government.  We do not want less choice.  We do not want higher taxes.  We simply do not want what you are trying to shove down our throats.  WE DO NOT WANT HEALTHCARE REFORM IN THE FORM YOU ARE TRYING TO IMPLEMENT IT!

We all agree that healthcare costs are high, and that these costs need to be addressed.  But the approach of having MORE involvement of an inefficient government who takes away our choice, raises our taxes, and reduces the quality and availability of healthcare IS NOT the choice Americans want.  We want the choice that REMOVES government control, reforms the legal system, and increases competition without the government.  Many of you in Washington these days are trial lawyers, and are beholden to that special interest group.  That is why you refuse to address the abuses of that group.

Mr. Reid, you, your colleagues, and Mr. Obama are dividing America and driving this country to a point where Americans will no longer tolerate your foolishness and tyrannical behavior.  You are driving us to a point where our backs are against the wall and we will be forced to extreme measures to ensure the survival of our nation.  I will remind you of the words of our Declaration of Independence:

“…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. … “

Mr. Reid, you have reached that point.

Sincerely,

///SIGNED///

Citizen
