Obamacare Anxiety / Betrayal
As a Conservative Democrat, giving the government control of healthcare does not fit in with my way of thinking. Healthcare is for doctors and patients only. So, even though I am a Democrat and even though you may be a Democrat, that does not mean that you should have had to give up your freedom to feed three big political egos.
That also does not mean that a better healthcare plan cannot be passed in the 118th Congress. That is my goal.

This little article was originally written at a time in 2009 / 2010 when the bill had not yet passed and they were in recess.
"The House and Senate may be out of session on winter recess, but Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are busy threatening legislators... cutting secret, back-room deals... they're twisting arms… all in a desperate attempt to pass ObamaCare.
Why were they so desperate?
Because, contrary to what you've heard from the progressive Marxist mainstream media, ObamaCare took a while to be a done deal... and Obama, Pelosi and Reid knew it."
Blogger Alan Caruba summarized what is going on and warned US all that this struggle was about so much more than so-called "health care reform"... it's a battle for the soul and the future of this great nation:
"The bribery and thuggish pressures and threats against Democrat Senators and Representatives to pass the bill revealed a political leadership more devoted to ideology than the will of the People. ... it was an example of naked Communism at work. It was a bill put together behind closed doors and so extensive its control of the lives of Americans literally determines who lives and who dies."
Obama, Pelosi and Reid knew that ObamaCare could be stopped. That's why they had to desperately issue threats and cut secret deals. Republicans pretended they could do nothing and they did nothing to stop it.
The desperation of Democrats was proof positive that we all could have stopped them.
However, representative after representative gave up the high ground and caved under the pressure of the mighty trio -- Pelosi, Reid, and Obama. Obama called all the shots. Pelosi was the drill sergeant. Kanjorski and Carney before Cartwright from Northeastern PA went with no resistance. Both represented San Francisco, not the Doctors and Patients of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Not a scream or a kick was heard. They followed willingly.
On May 17 2022, we the people have the opportunity to pay back the Democrat scoundrels and their heirs and assigns or turning their backs on the people of NEPA.
Matt Cartwright, acts like he is a shoe-in in each election. But, if he wants to continue representing those who he has been representing the last ten, the people should ask him to please move to San Francisco.
