“Romneycare” is the microcosm of Obamacare – the following is a disturbing, and factual look into the future of our new health care plan and what it means to you, despite what Congress is attempting to sell you.

What is Romneycare? In case you don’t know, former governor of Massachusetts (and a possible republican presidential candidate for 2012) Mitt Romney instituted a plan for the state of Massachusetts which would cover every man, woman and child – state government-run healthcare. Basically, Romneycare is a genetic blueprint for Obamacare.

First the basics. Romneycare promised to do just what Obamacare is promising to do: Reduce costs for insurance premiums, make health coverage affordable for all citizens, and promises that costs will be manageable on our budget (i.e. deficit neutral).

Here are some quick facts on Romneycare (per Wiki):

Robert Gibbs Struggles To Keep A Straight Face

In Corruption, Government Lies, Health Care, Scott Brown on January 24, 2010 at 3:59 pm

According to Gibbs, Scott Brown’s win in Massachusetts is a great sign for Obama. The people are angry. They are angry about the last eight years [of George W. Bush], not Obama. Is anyone buying this? How long will it take before someone looks one of these delusional moonbats in the eye and says, “Are you kidding? You don’t make the slightest bit of sense.”

Let’s follow the argument: People are angry about the previous eight years of George W. Bush. Scott Brown walks in “lockstep” with George W. Bush (according to Obama, Coakley and Deval throughout the campaign). Hence, Scott Brown wins impossible election in the bluest state in the Country. Got it.

Here is part of the transcript taken from Gateway Pundit via Fox News:

Chris Wallace: It wasn’t the same thing that swept Barack Obama into office. Scott Brown explicitly campaigned against the Obama agenda. His approval rating among that electorate was 61%. Their enthusiasm for Republican policies among that electorate was 40%.

Chris Wallace: But your not suggesting that this was a mandate for Barack Obama?

Robert Gibbs: No. Of course not. But I’m also not suggesting that what you said a minute ago meets the truth test either.

Chris Wallace: You don’t think that when they voted for Scott Brown they were voting against Obama’s policies?

Robert Gibbs: That’s not what they told pollsters. No.

Robert Gibbs on Scott Brown’s win: That may be what he campaigned on but that’s not what the voters in Massachusetts said in the Washington Post poll… They did a poll of voters who participated in why they voted. Right. More people voted express their support for Barack Obama than to oppose him.

How long will the denial continue? John Edwards found the end of the road came in the form of an inconvenient paternity test. Only time will tell which piece of irrefutable evidence will ultimately force the rest to their knees; dare to dream.

Coakley Hits New Low

In freedom, living free, Scott Brown on January 18, 2010 at 4:39 pm

Pictured above is an ad sent out two days ago to Massachusetts (or if you prefer, “MassachusettEs”) residents by the Coakley campaign. The pamphlet shows the faces of supposed rape victims in the Commonwealth. Along with the mailer, Coakley spent a whopping $2M on negative advertising in the past four days alone. Can it be that Martha Coakley and the Democratic leadership is so bewildered by Brown’s recent success, they are willing to sacrifice what little character they have to steal the election?  Shame on you all.

Several days ago Scott explained a conversation he had with his wife at the start of his run for the US Senate: “Win or lose, when this is all over I want to be able to hold my head high.” As crazy an idea as it might be; Scott actually means what he says. In his refrain from running a negative campaign, the people of Massachusetts have been witness to Scott not just as a politician, but a person. Sadly for the Coakley campaign the success of Scott Brown’s campaign could be easily explained by a six-year-old: He listens to the people and tells the truth. Imagine that.

With a ground-breaking election happening two days from now, I want to correct some of Ms. Coakley’s backbiting, and set the record straight:

Lie number one: Scott Brown wants rape victims turned away from hospitals. Really Martha? That’s really how you decide to spin this? Truth: Scott voted for a bipartisan amendment that allows religious hospitals to refer a patient seeking an abortion to an affiliate. The amendment simply protects the religious beliefs of doctors and hospitals opposed to killing unborn babies. Did I mention Scott was raised by a single mother and now lives with his wife and two daughters? It certainly is believable that Scott Brown opposes medical care for rape victims.

Lie number two: Just like Bush and Cheney, Scott only wants to give the wealthiest two percent a tax break. Again, really? Truth: Scott not only wants to give “across the board” tax cuts to all Americans, he has said it repeatedly in television ads. As a young child, Scott understood firsthand the financial struggles of a child raised on welfare. It certainly does make sense that State Senator Brown opposes stimulating the economy by making “across the board” tax cuts. Hang on, there’s more…

Lie number three: Scott Brown if elected, will be forced to further the agendas of various special interest groups as repayment for getting him elected. Yes, it’s true. With Scott’s average donation being about ten bucks, he will be forced to fight for each “special interest” group (i.e. American citizen) who so generously donated to his campaign. Further, individual donations to Brown’s campaign may not exceed $2,400. Truth: the single largest special interest group in the Country, SEIU, backs Martha Coakley. Coakley receives donations from SEIU in the tens of thousands. Also, many sizable law firms (or cronies) are contributing to Martha’s campaign with sums north of $25,000.

The people of the Commonwealth along with the Nation are angry. Tuesday January 19th marks the first opportunity for America’s voice to be heard. Tuesday’s election will most likely serve as an indicator for the upcoming elections. Get out there, make your voice heard, and help send Congress a message. I leave you with the words of Daniel Webster: “The contest for ages has been to rescue liberty from the grasp of executive power.”

Curt Schilling Heavily Endorses Scott Brown

In Health Care, Scott Brown on January 5, 2010 at 12:15 pm

The people are speaking out, and they are for Scott Brown. Long gone are the days that a liberal Democrat from Massachusetts can win a landslide victory by going on vacation. Scott emailed me last night saying, “I am campaigning 24/7 and am getting a great response”. Legal Insurrection points out that Brown leads by 44% with independent voters. “Hey Martha, time to get back to work, it aint over yet”  Yesterday, Boston Red Sox Legend, Curt Schilling came out in support of Scott Brown on his 38 Pitches Blog.

Below are just a few of the voices being heard:

Scott Brown’s First TV Commercial Release

In Scott Brown on December 30, 2009 at 5:42 pm

We are about two hours away from Scott’s arrival and looking forward to the opportunity. I imagine we will have a tremendous turnout and raise a bit for the campaign. For all those unable to attend, you can still give HERE. The end of the year marks a very important milestone in Scott Brown’s journey; on the 1st of the year the GOP will decide how much funding their candidate is given based on how much they raise. For this reason, it is imperative that anyone interested in supporting a real change in Washington do it before the end of December. A special thanks to all who have generously supported Scott’s run for US Senate. And remember, if you happy with how things are going in America, Scott is not your man…
