Democrats Promise Healthcare Bill

After the President's speech the other night, Democrats have a renewed interest in passing ObamaCare this fall. The President did not discourage the use of the so-called nuclear option - where only 51 votes are required to pass a bill in the Senate. This in effect - would force the legislation through - bypassing the conventional method. Many are against this.

Congress better think twice before supporting this strategy. Senior citizens are one of the largest groups opposing ANY government healthacare program because they will get the short end of it. Proposed cuts of $500 Billion dollars will be taken from Medicare to pay for the new government plan. This is the number one reason seniors are not for it.

Democrats better remember who helped put them in office. Seniors represent a large voting block and they have a record of voting in large numbers for all elections - including the mid-term elections.

Tea Parties have seen strong representation of seniors and they have a common interest - no government healthcare at the expense of seniors.

Congress Beware
If Congress passes ANY government healthcare using the Nuclear Option, they will have to face the wrath of senior voters in November 2010 or the next time they are up for re-election. Seniors don't forget!
