Bloviating Zeppelin: Defeat ObakaKare THIS WEEK. We Need HELP NOW!

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Defeat ObakaKare THIS WEEK. We Need HELP NOW!

I had today off. I spent the bulk of it running up my phone bill on both ends -- long distance through my land line carrier and also over the internet (I only have dial-up at my cabin).

I went to in order to acquire information for phone calls, and I went to in order to find various numbers and e-mail references. I spent roughly 9 am to 3pm calling and e-mailing various politicians.

I would solicit you to do the same thing. I make some easy references for you now:

From Hugh Hewitt, he identifies three Demorats who are being leaned upon by Obaka and Pelosi. I called them. I e-mailed. I left messages. I didn't read from someone else's prepared text. I told them what I really thought. Those three are:

Marcy Kaptur:
D.C.: (202) 225-4146
Toledo: (800) 964-4699 or (419) 259-7500
E-mail (use zip code 43604).

Jason Altmire:
D.C.: (202) 225-2565
Aliquippa: (724) 378-0928
Natrona Heights: (724) 226-1304

Michael McMahon:
D.C.: (202) 225-3371
Staten Island: (718) 351-1062
Brooklyn: (718) 630-5277
E-mail (Use zip code 10306).

Plus, go here to Free Our Health Care. I did. Today.

The "Slaughter Rule" is UNConstitutional. Click this link and read the interview.

The Demorats' current bleat is that "process doesn't matter." That means votes on a specific issue don't matter. That means you don't matter.

Pelosi has already said: "But I like it (the Slaughter Rule) because people don't have to vote on the Senate bill." Because it would protect the Demorats who would have voted for ObakaKare -- but now, may not overtly have to.

However, a niggling little 1998 SCOTUS ruling may end up getting a bit in the way.

Also, you can track the daily movement of ObakaKare here.

The movement for a possible repeal is already, and properly so, being organized.

More Demorats to call who are facing pressure:

Georgia's John Barrow:
D.C. (202) 225-2823
Augusta: (706) 722-4494
Savannah: (912) 354-7282

New Jersey's John Adler
D.C.: (202) 225-4765
Toms River: (732) 608-7235

New York's Dan Maffei:
D.C.: (202) 225-3701
Syracuse: (315) 423-5657

New York's Michael Arcuri:
D.C.: 202-225-3665
Utica: 315-793-8146/8147

I called them too and spoke to only a few humans. But I left many voicemails. Some just rang and rang. But I let it ring.

Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight blog --the best of the lefty bloggers by far-- lets us know the ten key Democrats on whom to lean (and to whose opponents your contibutions should be directed if they vote "yes" on Obamacare):

You can use the House switchboard via 202-225-3121. Call them all. Pledge to help their opponents if they vote "yes" on Obamacare.

But also keep the pressure on this list, especially the Ohio five.

These Ohio Demorats are also "on the fence." I called them and sent e-mails. You can too:

Rep. Zack Space – Ohio's 18th District
DC Phone: (202) 225-6265
Dover (330) 364-4300;
Zanesville (740) 452-6338;
Chillicothe (740) 779-1636
Link to E-mail

Rep. Charles Wilson – 6th District
DC Phone: (202) 225-5705
District Phone: Canfield (330) 533-7250;
Marietta (740) 376-0868;
Bridgeport (740) 633-5705;
Ironton (740) 533-9423;
Wellsville (330) 532-3740
Link to E-mail

Rep. John Boccieri
D.C. Phone: (202) 225-3876
Canton: (330) 489-4414

Rep. Steve Driehaus
D.C. Phone: (202) 225-2216
Cincinnati: (513) 684-2723

Rush Limbaugh already killed the DC switchboards this week by merely asking listeners to call:

- Toll-free number for the Capitol Switchboard: 877-762-8762.
- Direct toll number is 202-224-3121.

Mr Obaka sat for an interview on Wednesday with Bret Baier on Fox News' Special Report. Obaka did nothing more than obfuscate and filibuster. At one point Baier asked Obaka the same question four times with no clear answer proffered.

Obaka cannot answer. He cannot speak "in the clear." He, literally, does NOT know what is in the ObakaKare bill itself. The entire transcript is here. He doesn't know what's in the bill. He doesn't care what's in the bill. Pelosi has already pulled all the chicks for a vote. But a vote on what?

In terms of suits stemming from ObakaKare, Idaho is already leading the way:

BOISE, Idaho — Idaho took the lead in a growing, nationwide fight against health care overhaul Wednesday when its governor became the first to sign a measure requiring the state attorney general to sue the federal government if residents are forced to buy health insurance. Similar legislation is pending in 37 other states.

Ladies and gentlemen, if I can make calls, you can make calls.

Time to stop reading. Get on the heater. E-mails. Phone calls. Do it now.

This post will remain up for more than one day, for obvious reasons.

Get going.

The door has to be slammed.

And it has to be slammed now.



As a direct result of the POTENTIAL of ObakaKare --

Walgreens' news release
Effective April 16, Walgreens drugstores across the state won't take any new Medicaid patients, saying that filling their prescriptions is a money-losing proposition — the latest development in an ongoing dispute over Medicaid reimbursement.

The company, which operates 121 stores in the state, will continue filling Medicaid prescriptions for current patients.

In a news release, Walgreens said its decision to not take new Medicaid patients stemmed from a "continued reduction in reimbursement" under the state's Medicaid program, which reimburses it at less than the break-even point for 95 percent of brand-name medications dispensed to Medicaid patents.

This bill hasn't even passed and it's having ramifications. What? You couldn't see or anticipate this? Demorats, you ignorant sluts.

Mr Chuck: you're coming through, on the comments here, loud and clear. I left your most salient comment in place. Two others I deleted that were extraneous.

Been calling for days BZ, I've talked to only 6 of them crooks in suits. I started with the idiots closest to us....And worked out...Bastards are going to pass this crap. Just get ready for the fallout. It's already starting. Walgreens in Wash st. are already not accepting anymore medicaid customers for prescriptions after Apr.16th...

We need to be prepared for war come November EVERY one of these asshats that voted for this bullshit need to get run out on a rail. As well as the leadership of the AARP, the SCIU heads and the HNIC himself....

BunnyC: thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and taking the time to comment. Get onto those phones. Get onto the internet. Thank you!

Bushwack: and I submit that WAR is NOT out of the question. What form? I have not an idea.

Good work BZ- And I think Walgreens is just the tip of the iceberg...

What makes you think they'll listen? Their entire job now, it seems, is voting on bills that the majority of their district is for, just so they can get reelected. Its a joke, EVERYTHING THEY DO is just so they can please enough people to keep their job. They make me sick. As we have seen, everyone can be bought in washington bz. But if they support this crap, they won't have a job. But, they all have a price bz, all of them. We need to watch out for these back door deals.

Sorry to see you're just another mean and short sighted Americans who bought the corporate lies to try to prevent others from receiving health care.

I this you?

And will Medicare be next?

My congressman is dead-set against this, as is my neighboring districts man, but as far as my Senators go, I can't think of a legal means to change their vote. However there is an effort going on here to reject it on the basis of the 10th amendment and that may be the way to go.

Is English your primary language?

You're right in pounding Democrats on the Health Care Bill. But don't forget that Repubs are nearly as responsible for the economic mess we're in.
Me? I'm voting anti-incumbent in all upcoming elections. Throw the bums out.

Making all these calls is not much more than a *feel good* effort folks... You're running up YOUR phone bills for naught...

These asshats that are FOR the ObamaCare debacle aren't listening to their own constituents, they are totally ignoring folks out of their district and state..

Hi BZ! It's Layla - remember me? Finally I am back from my hiatus!

You are doing a great job working against this healthcare program, but I am really worried they will work in out and get it passed - just as illegally and they got Obama elected! The dems know how to pimp themselves! Sick!

The majority of Americans want heath care-when they get past the tea bagger lies and rhetoric you guys put out there to kill off your own families.
