Historic "Bi-Partisan" House Passes The Nancy Pelosi Destruction of America Act of 2009
Under the cover of a Saturday night the Nancy Pelosi Destruction of America Act of 2009 passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 220-215.
A triumphant Speaker Nancy Pelosi likened the legislation to the passage of Social Security in 1935 and Medicare 30 years later. "Oh, what a night!" she proclaimed at the beginning of a press conference held after the vote. President Obama issued a statement saying, "I look forward to signing it into law by the end of the year."
Pelosi and Obama failed to mention that Social Security currently has an unfunded liability of over $13 trillion, and Medicare over $73 trillion. For more information on exactly how broke our government has made the United States, click here.
The vote fell across party lines, with only one Republican voting in favor of the bill. It is likely in the coming days we will much about the bi-partisan nature of the vote. To see the names of those who voted in favor of this completely un-Constitutional measure, click here.
Meanwhile, Obama still has none absolutely nothing regarding the request from General McChrystal for the deployment of 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan, and he has issued no apology for his absolutely rude and inconsiderate speech Thursday at the Tribal Nations Conference, as he went on and on about his agenda before beginning to speak about the horrific murder by an Islamic Jihadi terrorist at Ft. Hood.
Instead, he once again made the event all about himself by saying "And I want all of you to know that as Commander-in-Chief, there's no greater honor but also no greater responsibility for me than to make sure that the extraordinary men and women in uniform are properly cared for and that their safety and security when they are at home is provided for." Apparently he missed out on the part where presidents are supposed to take Muslim Terrorists seriously.
However, he does have a Nobel Peace Prize, and it is likely his golf game is improving since he has had more than adequate time on the links since becoming president.
