Right! So I wrote Olympia on Monday, (along with thousands of others). I begged her to remember that she was elected as a Republican and to vote against the Baucus Bill in Committee. Of course, she ignored me, (but I believe I’m in good company).
On “Cavuto” just a few minutes ago, Sen. Grassley stated that Olympia is still not committed to voting for the Bill all the way through the legislative process, uh-huh. Seems like now would have been a good time to begin actually putting her vote where her mouth is. Perhaps we should introduce her to Sen. Specter? He could explain the advantages of becoming a Democrat.
In case you haven’t have a chance to read about the Price-Waterhouse study on the true cost of the Baucus bill as it stands now, (I remind you that at this point it does not contain a “public option”–it will, just wait for it), I have linked to analyses by “Investor’s Business Daily”, the “Health Care Policy and Marketplace” blog and the “Heritage” blog. None of these are wild-eyed extremists. All of them arrive at the same conclusion: this Bill, as HR 3200, is not about health care, it is about power, control and money–Government power and control, our money.
