Making a last-ditch effort to save his health care overhaul, President Barack Obama on Monday put forward a nearly $1 trillion, 10-year compromise that would allow the government to deny or roll back egregious insurance premium increases that infuriated consumers.
First off, it’s NOT a compromise, it’s the same old bug government takeover of health care, complete with the giovernment option, rationing and abortion included.
The fact the AP calls it “last ditch” — does that mean it’s the last chance for the ditch? The Democrats will regret the day they pass something like this Obama-nation against the American people’s wishes. The whole “consent of the governed” thing and all.
The last time Democrats used their super majority for tyranny was the Kansas-Nebraska Act, of 1854 which in essence, legalized slavery. The outrage at the time was furious, much as it is today with health care.
In the United States during the pre-Civil War era, the Kansas–Nebraska Act of 1854 created the territories of Kansas and Nebraska, opened new lands, repealed the Missouri Compromise of 1820 and allowed settlers in those territories to determine if they would allow slavery within their boundaries. The initial purpose of the Kansas–Nebraska Act was to create opportunities for a Mideastern Transcontinental Railroad. It was not problematic until popular sovereignty was written into the proposal. The act was designed by Democratic Sen. Stephen A. Douglas of Illinois.
The Kansas-Nebraska Act established that settlers could vote to decide whether to not allow slavery, in the name of popular sovereignty or rule of the people. Douglas hoped it would ease relations between the North and the South, because the South could expand slavery to new territories but the North still had the right to abolish slavery in their states. Instead, opponents denounced the law as a concession to the slave power of the South. The new Republican Party, which was created in opposition to the act, aimed to stop the expansion of slavery and soon emerged as the dominant force throughout the North.
Abe Lincoln was elected President in 1860 — The Civil War soon followed, where the Democrats of the South promptly lost.
It really didn’t stop the Democrats, soon after the end of the Civil War in 1865, they formed their terror wing the KKK. It wasn’t until 1964, with Sen Byrd leading the filibuster, that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 finely put a stop to the Democrats Civil War era KKK terror and propaganda wing — A slot now occupied by ACORN in it’s various incantations.

The American people will not support Eugenics, in any form.
Brief history of the filibuster: In 1975 the Carter Democrats, with their majorities dwindling, changed the filibuster rule to allow a three-fifths vote, instead of the previous two-thirds to silence debate. Since 2006, filibuster use has skyrocketed as the Democrats began their quest for social justice at the expense of bankrupting America and transferring wealth in order to gain a super voting majority, ala Hugo Chavez.
