Senate OKs health care measure, reaching milestone

By Bob L.

This is what we will be seeing from now on if they get the final bill passed after the New Year, unless some one can come with a way to prove that they have broken the law to do it, right now there is an investigation into bribery.

Think back when the Democrats had all these names for the tea parties goers and now by another Democrat, well lets say it in one word Terrorists out to destroy this Country,

[ Senator Whitehouse specifically said, “They are desperate to break this president. They have ardent supporters who are nearly hysterical at the very election of President Barack Obama. The birthers, the fanatics, the people running around in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups, it is unbearable to them that President Barack Obama should exist.]

These are segments from the story and the way I see it, or you can read the whole story HERE

Both bills would extend health insurance to more than 30 million more Americans, (that will be free to those who are not LEGAL CITIZENS, and don’t pay for it.)

So did Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., the longest-serving House member and a champion of universal health care his entire career, (is he going to take the insurance, no just like the rest of them they have free Cadillac plans.)

The Congressional Budget Office predicts the bill will reduce deficits by $130 billion over the next 10 years, an estimate that assumes lawmakers carry through on hundreds of billions of dollars in planned cuts to insurance companies and doctors, hospitals and others who treat Medicare patients.

“Not even Ebenezer Scrooge himself could devise a scheme as cruel and greedy as Democrats’ government takeover of health care,” the Ohio Republican said in a statement.

“Senator Reid’s health care bill increases premiums for families and small businesses, raises taxes during a recession, cuts seniors’ Medicare benefits, adds to our skyrocketing debt, and puts bureaucrats in charge of decisions that should be made by patients and doctors,” he said. “The bill also authorizes taxpayer-funded abortions, violating long-standing federal policy. It’s no coincidence that the more the American people learn about this monstrosity, the more they oppose it.

Two Escapes delay Ohio-bound flight in Houston

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Passengers on a Continental Airlines flight couldn’t believe it when they saw an otter scurry from the plane’s cargo hold and onto the tarmac at Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport. The daring escape by a pair of otters delayed the Ohio-bound flight for about an hour Tuesday night.

One passenger said that most on board thought the delay was a joke at first. But another said they watched one of the otters scurry across the tarmac.

Airport workers managed to catch the otters and return them to their cages and the flight took off for Columbus.

Woman arrested in Hawaii for threat to first lady

Wed Dec 23

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. authorities arrested and charged a woman in Hawaii last week for allegedly threatening to kill President Barack Obama’s wife, Michelle, days before the Obamas were due to arrive in the state for the Christmas holiday.

Kristy Lee Roshia was arrested on December 19 in Kaneohe, Hawaii, by the U.S. Secret Service after determining she had made the threat and had information about where the Obama family would be staying during their visit, according to court documents filed this week.

She was charged with making the threat against the first lady and assaulting a Secret Service agent after she was arrested.

A federal judge on Wednesday postponed a detention hearing for Roshia until a mental competency exam is conducted and she will remain in custody until then, according to court records.

The threat was originally made on November 10 during a telephone call to the Secret Service office in Boston and she also threatened to kill a Secret Service agent and Marines during the conversation, the documents said.

Agents determined that Roshia was living near a Marine Corps base in Hawaii based on correspondence she had sent to the Boston office that arrived the previous day.

During an interview with agents on December 19, Roshia said she had gone to Hawaii in September to “protect Obama,” had been to the location where the presidential family would be staying and was working at the golf course at the Marine base, a Secret Service affidavit said.

After Roshia was placed under arrest, she assaulted the Secret Service agent and claimed she would “blow away the whole Oval Office,” the affidavit said.

Roshia began contacting the Secret Service in 2004 and from 2007 made numerous angry calls to the Boston office, sometimes five to 10 times a day, the affidavit said.

The Obama family is expected to leave for Honolulu, Hawaii on Thursday morning after the U.S. Senate votes on his top legislative priority, overhauling the U.S. healthcare system.
