This past week was filled with videos and the revelation that we as Americans have been laughed at by Jonathan Gruber, President Barack Obama’s architect for Obamacare.
There are now a total of six videos that represent a montage of chuckles, laughs, and egocentric head nods from Gruber for his mocking of the American people. If he could, I’m sure he would most certainly high-five himself for pulling a fast one over on the American public. I might add that he was also paid handsomely for his manipulation, according to reports.
As good as he most likely feels about himself, we need to remember that he didn’t act alone. Obama and his merry band of Democrats in Congress had to have participated in pulling the wool over the American citizens’ eyes in one of the biggest schemes that has ever occurred.
It’s shameful and not unexpected at this point. We should be used to it by now, right?
Well, I’m not used to it. I’m infuriated about it and I’m tired of the same old lip service from a predominantly RINO GOP that has stood by and allowed this to happen to us.
There was a time that I trusted my government or at least trusted that there were enough good people in Congress and in our administration that would prevent corruption from happening.
Not anymore. I know that most politicians, especially those that are progressives, exist on both sides of the aisle. They cooperate more with each other at times than they would have you believe.
Take for instance when Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) didn’t realize his microphone was on and offered Secretary of State John Kerry his help in convincing House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to approve an aid package to Ukraine, which Boehner opposed.
There are also times when the GOP acts and the public is left scratching their heads as to whether they are acting in the publics’ best interests.
Remember when junior Libertarian senator, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), endorsed Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) and helped him win another term in office when his policies seemed in stark contrast to RINO, McConnell?
McConnell has now been voted in to lead the Republicans as majority leader for the next two years. Paul had a hand in making this happen.
Did Paul endorse McConnell to set himself up for a return endorsement in a run for the Presidency in 2016? Was this for Paul’s benefit or America’s benefit?
Every action taken by a member of Congress should always be for the public good and not for their own good.
I don’t know about you but I’ve had enough! Therefore, I want to send a clear message to the GOP that I believe most Americans would share.
For starters, we are not looking for you to compromise. I am all for working together to achieve a common goal. However, what you must remember is that most of the Democrats are not working toward the same goal that we are. We can’t work together to reach a common goal when one doesn’t exist. Therefore, work toward our goals!
You need to do your job and remember what your constituents have sent you to Washington, D.C. to do. Do you recall that little saying, ‘The will of the People?’
Secondly, secure the borders. That’s right! Follow through and build the fence along the border that you’ve been talking about since the 1990s. Then equip our border patrol agents and give them the authority to do their jobs, which includes deporting illegal immigrants.
We are tired of shelling out millions and billions to educate, feed, house and clothe those here illegally. It must stop and any executive order that Obama signs relating to amnesty must be quashed. If the executive order exceeds his authority as president then you must look at taking all appropriate legal action, including impeachment, if viable.
Next, you must act to defund Obamacare. We don’t like it, we didn’t want it, and it is hurting more people and our economy than it is helping.
Many Americans are paying double what they paid in insurance costs before Obamacare. My family is one of those American families.
I for one am tired of the Grubers of this world, laughing and profiting at my expense. You must reverse this course and fix the problem.
You should have fought harder to repeal it when you had a chance, but you didn’t. Instead you played right into Obama’s hands. Was that for your benefit and not ours?
The American public has had enough and we expect you to abide by your oath of office. In case you have forgotten here is a reminder of what the U.S. Constitution, Article IV, clause 3 requires of you:
I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
If you are unable to uphold these duties than step aside. You work for us and you are obligated to protect the citizens of the United States from those inside and outside of this country who would do us harm.
Read these words often and let them be a reminder that you also made this commitment to God. That commitment means something to us as Americans because our country was founded upon His principles, like it or not!
I for one plan on ‘holding your feet to the fire.’ I think I can speak for most of the American people when I say that we are watching and we will not sit back and be laughed at any longer.
