The entire 1990 page HR bill can be found at: http://docs.house.gov/rules/health/111_ahcaa.pdf
Page 94—Section 202(c) prohibits the sale of private individual health insurance policies, beginning in 2013, forcing individuals to purchase coverage through the federal government
Page 110—Section 222(e) requires the use of federal dollars to fund abortions through the government-run health plan—and, if the Hyde Amendment were ever not renewed, would require the plan to fund elective abortions
Page 111—Section 223 establishes a new board of federal bureaucrats (the “Health Benefits Advisory Committee”) to dictate the health plans that all individuals must purchase—and would likely require all Americans to subsidize and purchase plans that cover any abortion
Page 211—Section 321 establishes a new government-run health plan that, according to non-partisan actuaries at the HULewin GroupUH, would cause as many as 114 million Americans to lose their existing coverage
Page 225—Section 330 permits—but does not require—Members of Congress to enroll in government-run health care
Page 255—Section 345 includes language requiring verification of income for individuals wishing to receive federal health care subsidies under the bill—while the bill includes a requirement for applicants to verify their citizenship, it does not include a similar requirement to verify applicants’ identity, thus encouraging identity fraud for undocumented immigrants and others wishing to receive taxpayer-subsidized health benefits
Page 297—Section 501 imposes a 2.5 percent tax on all individuals who do not purchase “bureaucrat-approved” health insurance—the tax would apply on individuals with incomes under $250,000, thus breaking a central HUpromiseUH of then-Senator Obama’s presidential campaign
Page 313—Section 512 imposes an 8 percent “tax on jobs” for firms that cannot afford to purchase “bureaucrat-approved” health coverage; according to an HUanalysisUH by Harvard Professor Kate Baicker, such a tax would place millions “at substantial risk of unemployment”—Uwith minority workers losing their jobs at twice the rate of their white counterparts
Page 336—Section 551 imposes additional job-killing taxes, in the form of a half-trillion dollar “surcharge,” more than half of which will hit small businesses; according to a model developed by President Obama’s senior economic advisor, such taxes could cost up to 5.5 million jobs
Page 520—Section 1161 cuts more than $150 billion from Medicare Advantage plans, potentially jeopardizing millions of seniors’ existing coverage
Page 733—Section 1401 establishes a new Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research; the bill includes no provisions preventing the government-run health plan from using such research to deny access to life-saving treatments on cost grounds, similar to Britain’s National Health Service, which denies patient treatments costing more than £35,000
Page 1174—Section 1802(b) includes provisions entitled “TAXES ON CERTAIN INSURANCE POLICIES” to fund comparative effectiveness research, breaking Speaker Pelosi’s promise that “We will not be taxing [health] benefits in any bill that passes the House,” and the President’s promise not to raise taxes on families with incomes under $250,000.

How did YOUR Congressman vote?
An amendment was added to the Defense funding bill that included "hate crimes" language 10/08/2009 House Roll Call No. 770111th Congress, 1st SessionPassed: 281-146 (see complete tally)
The House agreed to the conference report to accompany H.R. 2647, to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2010 for military activities of the Department of Defense. In a devious maneuver by Democrats, a "Hate Crimes" amendment was attached to this bill. Though we support adequate funding for the military, this attachment is a poison pill that makes the bill unacceptable. Our military deserved a stand-alone vote on funding.

Pews protest gets attention of leaders -- 75% of National Assn. of Evangelical churches nix amnesty
FRIENDS, LET'S DECLARE A LITTLE VICTORY I think all of us will want to thank the approximately one-third of our NumbersUSA members who are evangelicals. They have done a huge amount of faxing and phone calling the last two weeks to stop their denominations from helping Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) build a new coalition to pass an amnesty. The results are that they have helped crumble a major pillar of Schumer's plans to pass an amnesty this winter. After looking like they were backing the amnesty, most of the evangelical denominations are now refusing to sign an endorsement. Hooray!
Read this blog for the details of the overall fight and the victory thus far.
(We still have the problem that most Mainline Protestant, Catholic and Jewish national groups continue to endorse amnesty. If you are a member of any of those and want to challenge them -- or if you are an evangelical and want to make sure this current victory stays in the win column -- please be sure you have taken this short Religion Survey. That will allow you to see special faxing opportunities.)
OVERWHELMING EVANGELICAL ENDORSEMENT WAS KEY TO SCHUMER'S AMNESTY PLAN When the late Sen. Ted Kennedy had to give up his 45-year Senate leadership on immigration, Schumer took over. He immediately revealed that he was going to do three things differently than Kennedy in order to pass the amnesty that Kennedy had failed to pass the last 8 years. Read my blog for Schumer's first two changes.
But the third change was to enlist the elites of the evangelical Christian movement to be an entirely new face for amnesty. Earlier this month, it looked like Schumer had pulled off a miracle. He assembled a Senate hearing panel of big-name evangelicals, including the president of the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) to endorse his plan to legalize most illegal aliens and to greatly increase the number of foreign workers allowed in the future. The NAE, with 42 member denominations, is the most conspicuous evangelical presence on Capitol Hill.
The NAE president told Schumer that the NAE's endorsement of legalization and increased foreign worker importation was "without dissent." We put that out to all NumbersUSA activists who are members of those 42 denominations and let them notify their national leaders how they felt about their decision to manipulate theology to make a case to favor illegal aliens over unemployed Americans. Denominations immediately began to post disclaimers on their websites and distance themselves from the NAE. Some of them provided some pretty strong biblical and theological reasons AGAINST amnesty. So far, only 11 of the 42 member denominations have been willing to sign onto the NAE pro-amnesty document. What a victory. Nobody can even contemplate attempting to claim evangelical support for amnesty in the future. Click here to see the list of 11 evangelical denominations that are lobbying for amnesty and more foreign workers (and also the list of the 31 evangelical denominations which resisted being pulled onto the amnesty bandwagon). We are continually posting new actions on your NumbersUSA Action Board. Please check to see if you have done all you can do this week. THANKS,
EVERYONE--PLEASE TAKE TIME TO LISTEN TO THIS

Barack Hussein Obama is not happy! When his taxpayer paid U. S. Department of Justice ("DOJ") attorneys walked into court on October 5, 2009, expecting United States Federal District Court Judge David Carter to immediately dismiss the birth certificate case, he did not get his way!
Retain attorneys in Washington, D. C., to take the Obama deposition.
Retain attorneys in Hawaii to take the deposition of those in control of the Obama birth records and school records. Take the deposition of Occidental, College officials to obtain Obama school records Retain attorneys in Massachusetts to take the deposition of Harvard. Law School officials to obtain Obama school records there. Pay the cost of the court reporters for all of these depositions. Plus, Pay the cost of serving the subpoenas on the various witnesses.
Question the issue of the passport files of Mr. Obama! We're going after the records of how he traveled abroad without a United States Passport in the 1980's, as he admits doing.
Question the issue of his alleged adoption by his step-father in Indonesia! We'll be seeking records about that also!
Resolve questions about his Selective Service files! We'll be seeking records concerning that also! But, first, we have to get past the DOJ dismissal motion! The DOJ's motion to dismiss also claims that our clients have no "standing," and that the matter is "political." But, if we as citizens of the United States have no "standing" to verify the citizenship of the man occupying the White House, who does? If our Federal Courts have no jurisdiction to hear this case, who does? It's not a "political" question, it's a CONSTITUTIONAL question! Last November, people said we were crazy to pursue this issue. Now, we've been shown to be right in our pursuit of the truth. It's not just the original birth certificate that they're refusing to release. Barack Obama's legal team has spent, according to published reports, over $1.4 million dollars so far to STOP anyone from seeing ANY of his actual identification documents, and many other documents. WHAT is Barack Obama trying to hide? WHAT is he afraid of? WHY doesn't he just release these documents to prove if he is a natural-born citizen and therefore qualified to be president -- especially his actual birth certificate?

For the first time in history, the Congress will not allow an increase in the social security COLA (cost of living adjustment). In fact, The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation predicts there may not be any COLA for the next three years.
However, the per person monthly Medicare insurance premium will be increased from the 2009 premium of $96.40 to $104.20 in 2010 and to $ 120.20 for the year 2011. Why should seniors vote to put people with this kind of poor judgment back in office?

In reading my emails today I ran across a question that was asked
by Paul Hollrah at UTFSM that might just settle a lot of controversy
on the deal about whether or not Obama is a natural born US citizen
and constitutionally qualified to hold the office of President or not.
As you can see from the post earlier today on TACWASH Blog
down below, the verdict is still out on this question in the
Supreme Court. What if the issue could be resolved by
answering this ONE SIMPLE QUESTION?
I’ll get to the question in a moment but first, who is Paul
Hollrah at UTFSM? I did a quick “google” and all I could
find on UTFSM was a Technical University in
Paul is apparently connected with UTFSM in some way but
and is a very outspoken right-wing writer Missouri
of political commentary. He is portrayed as a “Kook” by
the learned left-wing folks who believe what is written in
TIME magazine as the gospel truth. Be that as it may, I wish
this question could be answered with iron clad veracity.
What passport did Obama use when he was shuttling between
, and Jakarta in June of 1981? Karachi
What passport was he offering when he passed
through Customs and Immigration?
The American people deserve an answer to this question.
Paul says, “Let’s make the debate over Obama's citizenship
a rather short and simple one.”
Q: Did he travel to
in 1981, at age 20? Pakistan
A : Yes, by his own admission. (Verification needed)
Q: What passport did he travel under?
A: There are only three possibilities.
1) He traveled with a U.S. Passport,
2) He traveled with a British passport, for
3) He traveled with an
Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?
A: No. According to Paul, it is not possible.
was on the U.S. Pakistan
State Department's "no travel" list in 1981.
(Online sources say that this is a fabrication presented by “Birthers”
to build their case. Verification needed)
was indeed on the Pakistan no travel list when Obama went US
in 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport Pakistan
or an Indonesian passport.
If he were traveling with a British passport, that would support the allegation
that he was born in
Kenya on August 4, 1961according to certain documents and
testimony, not in
on Hawaii August 8, 1961as he claims.
If he were traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend to prove he
relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American,
in conjunction with being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.
If he made the trip without a
passport, the American people need US
to know how he managed to become a "natural born" American
citizen between 1981 and 2008.

From The Desk Of Gary G. KreepDear Concerned Friend,
Barack Obama is sweating it out after his Department of Justice (“DOJ”) attorneys walked into court expecting United States Federal District Court Judge David Carter to dismiss the birth certificate case. Why you ask? Simply because they “think” Obama is President. Their arguments were hollow and unconvincing. and after hearing hours of argument, the Judge Carter “took the matter under submission.” He has still not issued a ruling, 10 days later!
Is The President Above The Law and the Courts?
DOJ attorneys tried to explain to the Judge that no Court in the United States had the jurisdiction to rule on whether Barack Hussein Obama was eligible to serve as President of the United States? In their view he could only be impeached and/or disqualified from the Office of President under the 25th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution.
NOT TRUE! USJF pointed out to the Court that both the impeachment statutes, and the 25th Amendment required a sitting President, but if Mr. Obama is not eligible to serve as President, he could not be, and never was, a sitting President, so those options for removal could not apply. Therefore the courts would have jurisdiction.
HELP US MAKE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA PROVE IF HE IS ELIGIBLE TO SERVE AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: CLICK HERE NOW!
Monday, October 5, 2009, , at 8:30 a.m., in California, was a critical milestone for our entire legal and public relations effort to force Barack Obama to produce his birth certificate and to prove whether he is eligible to serve as President of the United States. And with your support USJF was able to be there to argue the case.
The case has an excellent chance to survive the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) motion to dismiss what has proven to be the best chance for America to have a hearing on the merits of this critical Constitutional issue.
What happened that day in Court? It’s very simple—the DOJ attorneys brought up every argument that they could to try to persuade the Court to dismiss this case
USJF provided sound legal arguments against the DOJ legal theories; otherwise the whole case could have been over right then and there! The USJF oral arguments will be the difference between this case surviving or being dismissed.
The Judge raised issues critical to our case:
1. Did Senators question the eligibility of Mr. Obama? (Only Senators Coburn and Shelby and a number of House members.)
2. Were objections made by Members of Congress when the vote of the Electoral College was certified? (NO, then Vice-President Cheney had not performed his required duty of asking for objections, so there could have been none raised.)
DOJ attorneys argued that only Congress, and/or the Electoral College, could decide on the eligibility of Mr. Obama. Fortunately, the USJF legal team filed pleadings pointing out that the DOJ legal arguments in this regard WERE WRONG! And, I was there to argue against those claims.
People at the hearing and those who have found out what happened there since have been contacting USJF, thanking us for standing up for the truth!
But the fight is not over yet! We expect a ruling from the Court any day now. If we defeat the dismissal motion, then we’re immediately filing pleadings (“discovery”) seeking Mr. Obama’s birth certificate, his college records, and so much more. AND, we’ll be seeking to depose Mr. Obama ASAP!
And if the Court grants the motion to dismiss, we’ll be immediately filing an appeal of the decision!
But we can only do this if we have your financial support!
Judge Carter has set a trial date of January 26, 2010 in this case. To keep that date, we need to defeat the DOJ dismissal motion, and then, IMMEDIATELY, move right into the discovery phase discussed above. BUT THAT WILL BE VERY EXPENSIVE AND WE WILL NEED TO:
- Retain attorneys in Washington, D. C., to take the Obama deposition.
- Retain attorneys in Hawaii to take the deposition of those in control of the Obama birth records and school records.
- Take the deposition of Occidental, College officials to obtain Obama school records
- We will have to retain attorneys in Massachusetts to take the deposition of Harvard. Law School officials to obtain Obama school records.
- Pay the cost of the court reporters for all of these depositions. Plus,
- Pay the cost of serving the subpoenas on the various witnesses.
HELP US MAKE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA PROVE IF HE IS ELIGIBLE TO SERVE AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: CLICK HERE NOW!
We expect the DOJ, as well as Mr. Obama’s private attorneys, to fight us every step of the way! Obama attorneys will file motions to block the depositions in each and every state, and the District of Columbia by the Obama defense team!
WE WILL NEED MORE HELP TO:
- Question the issue of the passport files of Mr. Obama! We’re going to be going after the records of how he traveled abroad without a United States Passport in the 1980’s, as he admits doing.
- Question the issue of his alleged adoption by his step-father in Indonesia! We’ll be seeking records about that also!
- Resolve questions about his Selective Service files! We’ll be seeking records concerning that also!
The DOJ’s motion to dismiss also claims that our clients have no “standing,” that the Federal Court does not have “jurisdiction” to hear this case, and that the matter is “political.”
But, if we as citizens of the United States have no “standing” to verify the citizenship of the man occupying the White House, who does? If our Federal Courts have no jurisdiction to hear this case, who does? It’s not a “political” question, it’s a CONSTITUTIONAL question!
Last November, people said we were crazy to pursue this issue. Now, we’ve been shown to be right in our pursuit of the truth. It’s not just the original birth certificate that they’re refusing to release. Barack Obama’s legal team has spent, according to published reports, over $1.4 million dollars so far to STOP anyone from seeing ANY of his actual identification documents, and many other documents.
WHAT is Barack Obama trying to hide? WHAT is he afraid of? WHY doesn’t he just release these documents to prove he is a natural-born citizen and therefore qualified to be president -- especially his actual birth certificate?
When Barack Obama officially entered the office of President, he became, in essence, a "pretender to the throne." According to the Constitution, only a "natural born citizen" can occupy the presidency.
Even though he was sworn in on January 20, 2009, Barack Obama is NOT legally the President of the United States, unless he can prove that he is a "natural born citizen."
What's more, every action taken by him while he occupies the White House may be invalid. If he cannot legally be President, every law passed by Congress will be null and void because the Constitution clearly requires that all laws be signed by the President... and, without a legally elected and sworn in President in office, that becomes an impossibility.
This crisis must be ended! And it must be ended NOW!
HELP US MAKE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA PROVE IF HE IS ELIGIBLE TO SERVE AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: CLICK HERE NOW!
And that's just what we're fighting to do. The United States Justice Foundation is spearheading a campaign to protect the United States Constitution... and your liberty.
We have to press our case to stop Barack Obama from, apparently, illegally holding the Presidency, despite the ongoing threats against us. We are speaking of filing additional lawsuits and administrative actions, over and above the dozens already filed, if you will help us today.
Are you willing to see the Constitution shredded by the Left? Will you sit back and do nothing while a foreign-born person may be illegally occupying the White House as President of the United States?
Our country is on the fast track to disaster... but you can help us keep the situation from getting worse. I pray that I'll hear from you today.
Gary Kreep, Executive Director

JESUS LOVES ME
Jesus loves me, this I know, Though my hair is white as snow Though my sight is growing dim, Still He bids me trust in Him.
(CHORUS) YES, JESUS LOVES ME.. YES, JESUS LOVES ME.. YES, JESUS LOVES ME FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.
Though my steps are oh, so slow, With my hand in His I'll go On through life, let come what may, He'll be there to lead the way.
When the nights are dark and long, In my heart He puts a song. Telling me in words so clear, 'Have no fear, for I am near.'
When my work on earth is done, And life's victories have been won. He will take me home above, Then I'll understand His love
I love Jesus, does He know? Have I ever told Him so? Jesus loves to hear me say, That I love Him every day.
If you think this is neat, please pass it on to your friends. If you do not pass it on , nothing bad will happen, but you will have missed an opportunity to 'Reach out and Touch' a friend or a loved one. God Bless Us All !!! See TLBC website click here

Marion and I celebrated our 44th Anniversary yesterday. We went out for dinner at Johnnys Dock Restauraunt and Marina. I took a picture of the boats on my cell phone. We couldn't believe what happened. The waiter came up and asked us if we were celebrating our anniversary. We said yes. He said is it your 44th anniversary? We said yes, how did you know? He said someone told me and smiled. Momentarily, the manager came over to our table and wished us a very happy 44th anniversary. The waiter came back again and said you must be good friends with Tom Baker. I said yes, he is our Ameriprise Financial Advisor. The waiter said well he has paid for your dinner tonight and so, when your are finished, you are free to go any time you want and everything is taken care of. WOW! Thank you Tom!

+ + The Individual Mandate is UNPRECEDENTED...
According to the Congressional Budget Office:
"A mandate requiring all individuals to purchase health insurance would be an unprecedented form of federal action. The government has never required people to buy any good or service as a condition of lawful residence in the United States."
+ + The Individual Mandate IS Government Takeover
With or without the so-called "public option", the Individual Mandate means ObamaCare is a government takeover of healthcare. That's because the individual mandate gives government control over the healthcare system by giving the government the authority to FORCE you to comply!
In fact, if you don't pay the Individual Mandate TAX, you can face up to a $25,000 fine or even ONE YEAR IN JAIL!
There is no escaping the government-run ObamaCare system. This is the definition of a government takeover of healthcare!
Here's what CATO Institute says about the Individual Mandate:
"Simply making health insurance compulsory gives government as much control over healthcare as would a compulsory government program."
