Fast-Track of Socialized Healthcare Imminent

Procedural Trickery Changes the Rules and Silences Opposition Debate

CHESAPEAKE, Va., April 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by Grassfire.org:

Fearing they will lack the necessary 60 votes required to pass socialized healthcare under normal Senate rules, House and Senate Democrats last night struck a back-room deal that essentially muzzles any kind of meaningful debate and drops the number of needed votes to 50 for passage.

"I'm not surprised by this move," says Steve Elliott president of Grassfire.org Alliance, "This is no longer a government for the people and by the people. President Obama and Congressional Democrats will utilize any means necessary to increase the size, scope and power of the government."

Almost immediately after the move, Senator Judd Gregg announced publicly that the fast-track maneuver was like embracing Hugo Chavez's political strong-arming tactics. Gregg also said: "What you've essentially got here is negotiations where one side decides to pick up a gun and load it, and the other side has the gun pointed at its head."

With Democrats pushing to pass the budget resolution with the fast-track for socialized healthcare as part of a celebration of President Obama's 100th day in office, Grassfire.org is calling on its million-strong team to flood Congress with faxes and phone calls opposing the fast-track provision. Elliott notes that Grassfire has identified 11 Democratic Senators who have voiced opposition to the fast-track trickery as the key to defeating this new wave of high-speed socialism. Those Senators are: Baucus, Inouye, Begich, Klobuchar, Byrd, Lincoln, Landrieu, Levin, Bayh, Ben Nelson, Casey and Pryor.

"Once again statist politicians have carved out a deal in darkness and silenced opposition debate," says Elliott. "A shift this monumental needs to be debated in clear view of the public -- not hidden behind a closed door on Capitol Hill."

Elliott expects Grassfire team members to make over 50,000 citizen contacts with Capitol Hill this week on this issue. In addition, Grassfire.org's national petition opposing Obama's $1.6 trillion in new taxes has rallied more than 210,000 citizens who are urging Congress to "Stop the Spending."
