On Saturday night, at the close of the debate on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) 2,032-page, $1.3 trillion government takeover of health care, House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) rose to speak about the bill and its impact on future generations and the American Dream.
Reports that President Obama and Democratic Congressional leaders have cut a deal to skip a formal Conference on their health care legislation - a flat violation of the President’s promise that such negations would be broadcast on C-SPAN for the American people to see - has provoked outrage across America.
Today, editorial boards from coast to coast weighed in, and - to say the least - they disagree with Speaker Pelosi’s assertion that “There has never been a more open process.”
"If the people fail to vote, a government will be developed
which is not their government. The whole system of
American Government rests on the ballot box. Unless
citizens perform their duties there, such a system of
government is doomed to failure."
Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the USA.
