Senate Republicans Find Needle In Haystack; GOP Hunts For New Glitches

Senate Republicans discovered a glitch in the new Health Care Bill. The Health Care Bill glitch deals with Pell Grants and low-income college students. 1

CONSERVATIVE WORDSMITH.COM COMMENTARY: Democrats rejected every Republican amendment for 9 hours in a row last night and into the wee hours of this morning. Republicans finally noticed a glitch in the Pell Grant early this morning.

Now that Republicans are on a roll, they are going to look for more glitches. Conservatives want to know the answer to this question: Will Republicans find enough glitches in Obama's Health Care Plan to halt it completely?

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting on that one. Democrats have an agenda, and they will not let up on their zeal to turn America into a Socialist-bordering-on Communist country.

This is not only about President Barack Obama's Heathcare Bill. It's about a corrupt liberal leftist Congress with too many Democrats who side with the United Nations on too many issues. Perhaps America will soon be called another name -- Obamica? United Nations of American States? Your guess is as good as mine.

"After nine straight hours of beating back Republican amendments, Senate Democrats hit a temporary snag in the nighttime hours early Thursday. They had hoped to complete work on the fix-it bill by midday Thursday and get it quickly to Obama without changes to avoid prolonging what has been a politically painful ordeal for the party." 1

But Republicans learned early Thursday they will be able to kill some language in the bill that relates to Pell grants for low-income college students. That means the altered bill will have to be returned to the House for final congressional approval before it can be sent to Obama." 1

"Democrats described the situation as a minor glitch, but did not rule out that Republicans might be able to remove additional sections of the bill." 1

"Republicans have been hunting for such violations in hopes of bringing down the legislation. Democrats had also been consulting with the parliamentarian, Alan Frumin, and hoped they had written a measure that would not be vulnerable to such problems."

"The development came as the Senate completed nine hours of uninterrupted voting on 29 GOP amendments to the legislation. Majority Democrats defeated every amendment." 1

"By 57-42, Democrats rejected an amendment by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., barring federal purchases of Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs for sex offenders. Coburn said it would save millions of dollars, while Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., called it "a crass political stunt." 1

Democrats also deflected GOP amendments rolling back the health law's Medicare cuts; killing extra Medicaid funds for Tennessee and other state-specific spending; barring tax increases for families earning under $250,000; and requiring the president and other administration officials to purchase health care from exchanges the statute creates." 1

U.S. Economy And Political Machinations Of Obama Health Care Plan In America

The U.S. economy will suffer due to the political machinations of President Barack Obama, and his politically leftist Democratic Congress passing of Obama's Health Care Bill, which has left many Americans feeling fear, confusion, doubt, sorrow, and anger. 

Forcing policies upon American citizens against their wills, policies that are not guaranteed rights in the United States Constitution or Bill of Rights, as far as I know, is unconstitutional. This is just one of many sharp contrasts between Democrats and Republicans. Democrats believe in Big Government, and its ability to govern the lives of Americans; Republicans believe in Americans, and their ability to largely govern their own lives. 

What the Obama Administration has done should be recognized by the United States Supreme Court as being unconstitutional, and, consequently, illegal. The United States Congress has crossed the line of democracy. At least a dozen attorneys, representing twelve states, are planning to sue the Federal government over President Obama's Health Care Plan.

If creating a National Health Insurance Plan was the #1 top priority in the mind of Barack Obama and his Administration, it should have been accomplished without the use of "force," and without getting the IRS involved in this "force" factor.

Creating 16,000 jobs within the IRS, for the main purpose of penalizing and policing Americans who either can't afford, or simply are not interested in, Obama's National Health Plan, for whatever reasons, is not the way to help the American economy.
