There’s no doubt that the whole of the US is on the edge of their seats waiting to see what will happen with the healthcare reform bill. Given the fact that Obama hasn’t even given his healthcare reform proposal, most of us are relying on HR 3200 for info (there are apparently 4 other bills right now in the Senate). And now, it appear we have won a small victory for freedom. Yesterday, Matt Drudge had a picture of a white flag signaling that perhaps the White House via comments made by Kathleen Sebelius was ready to abandon the “public option”. However, at no point does the Statist do an about-face.
Now, some are saying Sebelius “misspoke” or that perhaps the state-run media “misinterpreted”. Michelle Malkin isn’t buying the surrender, and as much as I would like to believe its true, I’ll have to side with Malkin on this one.
No, there is still plenty of life left in this one boys and girls. This Administration and Congress has show themselves to be totally unworthy of our trust. Whether they sneak an extra 300 pages on a bill at 3 am or they simply deny what is actually in the proposed legislation, shenanigans are sure to continue. That being said, we can’t let up- continue to put on the pressure. Any government restriction and encroachment, any power they seek to wield that is not provided them by our Constitution is a betrayal of the people and we are duty bound to opposed it. There’s a lot more work to do.
