Will the Arkansas House Insurance and Commerce Committee Recall the Lesson of Blanche Lincoln

Will the Arkansas Liberal Legislators remember what ended Blanche Lincoln’s return to the U.S. Senate in 2010?

Just because Governor Beebe has garnered another backroom deal with the Bogus POTUS as the setup and the Arkansas assembly attempts to serve it, this is not a tennis match or any other game…

ARKANSAS RED ALERT

HUGE RED FLAG!

Received via email this morning:

Date: Mon, Mar 21, 2011 at 10:13 PM
Subject: Bill to Implement Obamacare in Arkansas THIS WEDNESDAY

“…HB2138- TO IMPLEMENT FEDERAL HEALTHCARE REFORM; AND TO CREATE THE ARKANSAS HEALTH BENEFITS EXCHANGE; AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.
http://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/assembly/2011/2011R/bills/HB2138.pdf

This is bill is scheduled to be heard in the House Insurance and Commerce Committee THIS Wednesday at 10am.

We cannot sit back and count on the Supreme Court to overturn this, or for Congress to defund it or repeal it. Ronald Reagan once said, “Government programs, once launched, never disappear.”
Those who support Obamacare are trying to implement it as fast as they can because they know even if the Supreme Court overturns this, it will be very hard to undo.

We must keep it from getting implemented in the first place. If you can at all be at the Capital on Wednesday morning, please do so. It is important that we have a crowd there to show our opposition.
Also take time over the next couple of days to email, call, or fax your representative and ask others to do so as well. Please be polite and respectful when you contact them.

Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement…”

Just a head’s up assembly legislators, I don’t think Entergy has enough “fall on your swords conciliation seats” to keep your futures afloat.

The TEA Party is watching you! Do the right thing!

Are the Liberal Arkansas State Legislators Trying to Pull A Fast One Over on Arkansans?

Wisconsin has ‘Fleebaggers‘, Indiana has ‘Fleebaggers‘, but Arkansas has ‘Legislators who can’t make it all the way to Illinois to whine in the Liberal bedlam‘ so… we’ll just mix around a few words and become Shambaggers.

Subject: Urgent: Bill Implementing Obamacare in Arkansas set to run NEXT week.

“…The time has come when the liberals will to try to push thru a bill here in Arkansas that will allow Obamacare to be implemented here in Arkansas.

Rep Hyde amended HB2138 late yesterday…

Here is a link to the amendment: http://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/assembly/2011/2011R/Amendments/HB2138-H1.pdf

The title was changed to: “AN ACT TO ENSURE CONTINUED LOCAL REGULATION OF INDIVIDUAL HEALTH INSURANCE
COVERAGE BY ENABLING THE INSURANCE COMMISSIONER TO CONTINUE SERVING
ARKANSANS; TO IMPLEMENT FEDERAL HEALTHCARE REFORM; AND TO CREATE THE ARKANSAS
HEALTH BENEFITS EXCHANGE; AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.”

Notice the subtitle: “TO ALLOW THE INSURANCE COMMISSIONER TO PROTECT ARKANSANS BY THE CONTINUED
LOCAL REGULATION OF INDIVIDUAL HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE.”

It is on the calendar for Insurance and Commerce for this Wednesday, but it could be run either on Tuesday (thru Public Health) or as late as Friday.

I have heard a rumor that they will run an identical bill at the same time on the Senate side (See SB880), but it hasn’t been amended yet. Also Senator Malone is listed as a cosponsor on the House bill.
Please be aware that they could ram it thru here in Arkansas in as little as 3 days…”

But the Arkansas Constitution page 70 clearly notes:
I do believe that Obamacare/Healthcare is within the parameters of an illegal exaction!

Arkansans, now is the time to come to the aid of our state, do not hesitate… the Liberals are despised, the lies and dirty tricks are constant and now they play disguise the name of the bill! Countrywide, Liberals are being shown as the children with temper tantrums they are and pushing through with a herd mentality. This is too absurd to continue. How about a recall, statute law or several other choices by initiating one of these lawful options as viewed on Wikipedia:

The True Patriots of DC

The true patriots of DC are The Supreme Court Justices who would not tolerate one more word from a BOGUS POS POTUS at a poorly scripted, executed and at times a jocular rendition of a State of the Union speech. What was so flippin’ funny about Obamacare, you Liberal Loons in the U.S. Congress? “We the People” are not amused by your buffoonery!

But we are inspired!

A HUGE ROUND OF APPLAUSE to those Supreme Court Justices!

And a HUGE THANK-YOU to you our SCOTUS PATRIOTS!

Principles!

hmm? He calls... these Justices... run?

When the Time Comes Will You Do the Right Thing? 

To:
Sen. Mark Pryor

January 6, 2011

When the Senate votes on the repeal of Obamacare, “We the People” are counting on you to faithfully assist in every way to stop Obamacare. You didn’t agree it last year and you shouldn’t this year. Arkansans hate it, you know it, so don’t blow it.

January 7, 2011
Dear Mrs. XXXXXXXX,
Thank you for contacting me regarding health care reform. I appreciate hearing from you.
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) into law. Since being signed into law, PPACA has helped over 43,000 Arkansas seniors who fall in the “donut hole” afford their medicines and provided tax credits to small businesses in Arkansas that offer health coverage to employees. It has also prohibited insurance companies from placing lifetime limits on coverage, ensuring that 1.4 million Arkansans who have private insurance are not abandoned when they need health coverage the most.
While the passage of health care reform was a step in the right direction for making health care more affordable and expanding access to health care in rural America, there is still work to be done. I will continue to consider changes and  improvements to PPACA as implementation moves forward. Please know that I will continue to work to ensure that health coverage is available and affordable to all Americans.
Again, thank you for contacting me. I value your input. Please do not hesitate to contact me or my office regarding this or any other matter of concern to you.

Sincerely,

Mark Pryor
United States Senate

I don’t need no stinking history lesson, I want results! Repeal Obamacare or lose your cushy seat warming position in 2012 like Last Chance Blanche did in 2010!

A Breath of Fresh Air as the New Congress is Sworn In

Finally, it is encouraging to know that the Presidential line of succession now has Speaker of the House John Boehner in position.We the Peopleof the United States of America have been heard! Now let’s get Obamacare repealed!

Excerpts from Boehner’s Speech to the Opening Session of the 112th Congress
 

Jan 5, 2011 Washington– Following are excerpts from Congressman John Boehner’s (R-West Chester) remarks to the opening session of the 112th Congress which will convene today at 12:00 p.m. ET:* * * * * * * * * * * *

“We gather here today at a time of great challenges.  Nearly one in ten of our neighbors are looking for work.  Health care costs are still rising for families and small businesses.  Our spending has caught up with us, and our debt will soon eclipse the size of our entire economy.  Hard work and tough decisions will be required of the 112th Congress. No longer can we fall short.  No longer can we kick the can down the road.  The people voted to end business as usual, and today we begin carrying out their instructions.”

* * * * * * * * * * * *

“The American people have humbled us.  They have refreshed our memories as to just how temporary the privilege to serve is.  They have reminded us that everything here is on loan from them.  That includes this gavel, which I accept cheerfully and gratefully, knowing I am but its caretaker.  After all, this is the people’s House.  This is their Congress.  It’s about them, not us.  What they want is a government that is honest, accountable and responsive to their needs.  A government that respects individual liberty, honors our heritage, and bows before the public it serves.”

* * * * * * * * * * * *

“Our aim will be to give government back to the people.  In seeking this goal, we will part with some of the rituals that have come to characterize this institution under majorities Republican and Democratic alike.  We will dispense with the conventional wisdom that bigger bills are always better; that fast legislating is good legislating; that allowing additional amendments and open debate makes the legislative process ‘less efficient’ than our forefathers intended.  These misconceptions have been the basis for the rituals of modern Washington.  The American people have not been well served by them.”

* * * * * * * * * * * *

“We will not always get it right.  We will not always agree on what is right.  A great deal of scar tissue has built up on both sides of the aisle.  We cannot ignore that, nor should we. My belief has always been, we can disagree without being disagreeable to each other.  That’s why it is critical this institution operate in a manner that permits a free exchange of ideas, and resolves our honest differences through a fair debate and a fair vote.  We may have different – sometimes, very different – ideas for how to go about achieving the common good, but it is our shared goal.  It is why we serve.”

* * * * * * * * * * * *

NOTE: Boehner’s speech will take place after the election of the Speaker and will be streamed live online at the Pledge to America Facebook Page.

Arkansans Get Ready to Toss Mark Pryor Out of the US Senate and On His Ear in 2012

The Lame Duck Syndicate, I mean Senate showed their deafness and defiance of “We the People” by passing S.510. Of course, Mark Pryor did not disappoint his master Harry Reid,  so along with his fading sidekick BlancheObamacare Enabler Lincoln,  he showed his recessive Progressive posture and voted YEA. I suggest Mr. Pryor that you get ready to answer to that title and dust up your resume, because 2012 is just around the corner, and we in Arkansas need a real man and Patriot in that seat that you’ve been warming.
