And So I Go: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

>>Dem Congress quick to Spank Arses of Honest Company CEO’s

Posted on: March 29, 2010

Caterpillar announced that Obamacare would raise its insurance costs by at least 20 percent – or more than $100 million – just in the first year of the health-care overhaul program. And Caterpillar was not alone. Other Fortune 500 firms quickly followed suit announcing Obamacare hits to their bottom line including: Deere & Co., $150 million; AK Steel, $31 million; 3M, $90 million; Valero Energy, $20 million; and AT&T, $1 billion. The consulting firm Towers Watson tells the Wall Street Journal that the total hit this year will reach nearly $14 billion. America’s employers simply can’t sustain losses like these, so many of these companies, including Verizon, have informed their employees to expect significant changes to their current health care benefits.

The leftist majorities in Congress were incensed that America’s employers would dare warn their investors about the costs of Obamacare at the same time as the Obama administration’s national sales pitch was set to begin. So using the full force of the federal government to bully and harass America’s job creators, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-CA) sent letters to the CEOs of Deere, Caterpillar, Verizon, and AT&T demanding all documents “from January 1, 2009, through the present” regarding “any analyses related to the projected impact of health care reform” and “any documents, including e-mail messages, sent to or prepared or reviewed by senior company officials related to the projected impact of health care reform.” Waxman intends to haul these CEOs in front of the subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, which just happens to be chaired by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI), for a hearing April 21st.

This is so good!  Four large american Corporation come out and tell exactly how the Obamacare will impacted them and The Democrats Congress immediately hauls them in to spank their butts.  They are due to speak to Congress and account for their crimes in mid April.  Specifically they must account for their “faulty” figures and apologize for them.

When the United States Congress calls it behooves one to come in because no one of sense wants to be in contempt of congress. I just hope these four men who are hugely intelligent or they would not have gotten the power they now wield use that   power to take each and every piss-ant Congressman down on that Committee after they get thru with this public humiliation.

It is going to be interesting to watch and even more interesting to see how the “mighty punks” fall afterwards.   We the People need the support of large companies in our fight against those who would destroy our nation  of free men and women  and free enterprise which has made us great.  BB

The fact that these Congressmen feel comfortable demanding these companies provide an accounting to the Almighty Beneficient Gov’t for their statements of increased cost, well, annoys the heck outta me. Add to that the lack of any attention to this tyrannical behavior by the media, and lack of any concern by the public at large, and I get a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach. Dread for what lies ahead.

The writer is absolutely correct in his advice.
The people are meeting their responsibility in their actions of resistance by protest and participating in Tea Party activities. Now, we need industry, business, Chamber of Commerces across the country, professional executives et al to speak with authority, knowledge and business accumen that helps the citizenry of the country to understand the true consequences of what the congress and administration are doing to what has been the greatest system ever to serve the people.
What has to be understood by the people, is that in the past times of economic disaster, this country has always had an economic system with the ability to recover and surge to new heights. It met the needs of the people by affording them the opportunity to work, to learn, to build on their own dream and achieve personal success. But, what will we have to rebuild our economy on this time? The government isn’t a business, managed by people who are experienced business people with the experience of meeting payrolls, creating ideas and new ventures. All the politicians know is how to spend other people’s money. Which of them has ever run a business? Which has ever had to meet a payroll?
Each day, we learn that the alleged job creation done by the Stimulus Packages are government jobs which are paid for by monies that they take from the people. Ask yourself if you believe that you can, if you’re fortunate enough to have or gain a job, will that job enable you to support your family, your children’s college education and at the same time, support the Federal and State governments, which mostly all, still fail to create balanced budgets.
We must all be knowledgeable about what is being done and who in the government is voting for the benefit of the people and who is not. What we have seen so far, is a body of politicians who are taking care of themselves and serving us with meaningless and empty platitudes.
We must understand that with the single act of refusing to subject themselves and their staffs to the same health plan that we are subject to, these people have revealed their duplicity and their concerns are not the representation of what we, the people want, but what they deem is to be in our best interest and that turns out to be that we are left bearing the burden, while to them, go the benefits.

The nations forefathers, with their great intellect, knew only too well the dangers of an all powerful government. That is why they endowed us with a republic with a balance of powers divided between a Congress, a President and a Supreme Court.
We cannot, we must not, lose the one and only system that guarantees us the freedom to succeed and fulfill our potential ability.

How can I have said this before, when it is my first comment on this subject?

Noon, I am mad as Hell about this. That overbearing and stupid Rep. Waxman is responsible for this just as he was behind calling in the AIG CEO after the bonuses were given out. Nevermind that he and his cohorts voted for the Stimulus Bill that contained the approval of the amount given out in bonuses for the AIG executives! But then no one in Washington bothers to read the bills they vote on and approve do they?!

Paul, the facts are that these companies, in fact all companies, are required by law to report any changes in their financial statements to the government. These statements are due in April . These four companies were merely following the laws written and approved by this same Congress. This is the second time this year Waxman has used his power to make an ass of himself. There are too many little people in the House of Representatives with entirely too much power. I don’t think the Founding Fathers planned for people elected by a tiny group of people as theses members of the House of Representatives are to have so much power. This is also why we hear again and again about the corruption in the House membership.

Paul, I don’t understand your question: How can I have said this before, when it is my first comment on this subject?
