The healthcare bill is dying
Source: DownsizeDC.org Submitted: 01/20/2010
A Big Government Republican politician, Scott Brown, saw the massive public opposition to the healthcare bill, and decided to pander to it. He did this in spite of his own long history of supporting Big Government schemes, including the health insurance mandates inflicted on the people of Massachusetts by Republican Mitt Romney.

The result of Brown's flip-flop on healthcare is that he defeated Democrat Martha Coakley in last night's Massachusetts special election to fill Edward Kennedy's vacant U.S. Senate seat. This means that Democratic leaders no longer have the votes in the Senate to block a filibuster.

Now it will be almost impossible for the Senate to approve a version of the healthcare bill that's acceptable to the House of Representatives. And House Democrats are already saying that there's little chance they'll approve the version of the bill previously passed by the Senate.

The healthcare bill is dying. It may already be dead. But, as the German philosopher Friederich Nietzsche once wrote, "That which is falling, let it also be pushed."

"Intelligence Organizations" and State-Sponsored Terrorism
Source: LewRockwell.com Submitted: 01/19/2010
--When the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in December 1979, Brzezinski, Secretary of State Cyrus Vance and CIA Director Stansfield Turner, via Pakistan's ISI, included Afghans fighting the Soviets in their pro-Islamic/anti-Soviet policy as part of trying to transform the conflict into a large-scale holy war, an Islamic jihad. This action, it was believed would make this war the USSR's Vietnam. In a way, it did, but Afghan conflict soon turned out to be much more than that. For the next decade, the CIA and the ISI recruited, armed, trained and funded almost 100,000 hardcore muhajedin from 40 different Islamic countries, commanded by a then-obscure Harvard educated civil engineer and Arab construction tycoon named Osama bin Laden, as crusaders for the USA's proxy war. This Islamic Foreign Legion's rank and file was largely unaware its jihad was actually being fought on behalf of and paid for by Uncle Sam.

--In 1996, the Taliban – then one of many small marginal sects of dangerous, hardline Islamic fundamentalists supported by the US government – had shot and terrorized its way into absolute power in Afghanistan. It was funded by the ISI, that old friend of the CIA, and supported by many Pakistani political parties. The Taliban unleashed a reign of terror and its first victims were, unsurprisingly, their own people. The Taliban closed down girls' schools, dismissed women from government jobs, and enforced sharia laws under which women deemed to be "immoral" are stoned to death, and widows guilty of being adulterous are buried alive.

--During the 1954–62 Algerian crisis a similar but separate group gradually emerged from the shadows. Like the OAS, it was a large cabal comprised of many powerful individuals with apparent (if not necessarily real) staunch religious-based anti-Soviet beliefs and the OAS's (and the CIA's) desire to rid France of the nonaligned Charles de Gaulle, a group named Il Gladio ("The Sword"). In 1990, then-Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti briefed Parliament in open session on Il Gladio – a covert but influential network of an estimated 15,000 agents provocateurs that operated under various guises in many other European nations, not just in Italy. He explained Il Gladio had been originally set up as the CIA's Operation Stay Behind in 1947 and, nine years later, was renamed "Operation Gladio."

--Gladio's initial mission was to reduce the considerable influence of French and Italian Communists right after W.W.II via hefty cash payments to "cooperative" Italian and French politicians, diplomats and influential businessmen (later, this would include Belgian, Austrian, German, Spanish and Greek ones as well) and by employing what was called a "strategy of tension." This "strategy" made frequent use of scare tactics, media smear campaigns as well as the services of freelance mercenaries, government intelligence officers, hardened career criminals and Mafia hitmen to carry out bloody shootings and bombings where groups like the Italian "Red Brigade" and the German "Baader-Meinhof Gang" were either blamed directly or infiltrated and used as "fronts" for these activities.

International Hearings Begin On “Falsified” Swine Flu Pandemic
Source: PrisonPlanet.com Submitted: 01/19/2010
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, a 47 nation body encompassing democratically elected members of parliament, has begun hearings to investigate whether the H1N1 swine flu pandemic was falsified or exaggerated in an attempt to profit from vaccine sales.

A PACE resolution, passed last month, gave context to the hearings which began yesterday in Strasbourg.

“In order to promote their patented drugs and vaccines against flu, pharmaceutical companies influenced scientists and official agencies, responsible for public health standards to alarm governments worldwide and make them squander tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and needlessly expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently tested vaccines. The “bird-flu”-campaign (2005/06) combined with the “swine-flu”-campaign seem to have caused a great deal of damage not only to some vaccinated patients and to public health-budgets, but to the credibility and accountability of important international health-agencies.”

--So, here we see the ultimate practical truth of the matter: Private financial special-interest groups buy politicians; in public office these politicians empower the special-interest groups by statute to manipulate the monetary and banking systems; to the extent that these manipulations succeed, the profits are largely privatized; and to the extent that the manipulations fail, the losses are almost entirely socialized. In either case, the general public is held hostage to the racket, and foots the gargantuan bill for its operation. And the guilty parties escape scot-free to steal again, and again, and again.  Read full article »

Obama’s Latest Ruse: The Bank Tax
Source: CommonDreams.org Submitted: 01/16/2010
--The proposed taxes would apply to financial institutions with more than $50 billion in assets and would extract about $90 billion from them over ten years. Obama's central claim is that this would cover all losses incurred by the government under the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP)...

--Neil Barofsky, the Special Inspector General charged with overseeing the bailout plan, reports that the bailout could end up costing $23.7 trillion. Critics of Barofsky accuse him of exaggeration. Let's suppose they are right. Say Barofsky doubled the true cost of the government's commitment. So what? Bloomberg reports, with no challengers, that the cumulative commitment to financial rescue initiatives amount so far to more than $8.5 trillion. $90 billion is a small drop in a big bucket.

How do these figures compare to what working people have lost? Households have so far lost $12 trillion in wealth in the wake of the crisis. By the end of the third quarter of 2008, shortly after the announcement of an impending collapse of the entire financial system, households had already lost $647 billion in real estate, $922 billion in stocks, $523 billion in mutual funds and $653 billion in life insurance and pension funds reserves. Total destruction of household wealth in Q3 2008 came to $2.8 trillion, the worst decline on record. That comes to four times TARP's $700 billion. If "[w]e want our money back," we're dead out of luck.

A Supreme Court Justice Who Would Ban Guns AND Free Speech? (With Video)
Source: PrisonPlanet.com Submitted: 01/15/2010
--On page 14 of Sunstein’s January 2008 white paper entitled “Conspiracy Theories,” he proposed that “under imaginable conditions” the government “might ban conspiracy theorizing” and could “impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories.”

--Sunstein’s definition of a “conspiracy theorist” encompasses those who question manmade global warming and, most bizarrely, anyone who believes that sunlight is healthy for their bodies.

Presumably if Sunstein had been in power in the latter middle ages he would have attempted to tax and then ban the work of Galileo Galilei for subscribing to the theory that the Earth was not the centre of the universe and that it actually revolved around the Sun.

--Sunstein is on record attacking the Second Amendment. Watch in the following clip as he says “The Supreme Court has never suggested that the Second Amendment protects the individual right to have guns.”

The Biggest Financial Deception of the Decade
Source: DailyReckoning.com Submitted: 01/13/2010
--We’re bailing out corporations that should fail, making financial promises we can’t keep, and adding layers of debt we can’t possibly repay. And the real killer is, if we don’t have the cash, we just print it. It is, by any reasonable account, the “blunder that will plunder” the next several generations. It is changing America permanently, and the problems will persist long after you and I are laid to rest.

Bottom line: after all the bailout programs, housing initiatives, rescue efforts, stimulus schemes, bank takeovers, wars, unemployment benefit extensions, and numerous other promises, the biggest financial deception of the decade is what the US government is doing to the dollar.

"Game Change" is Number 1
Source: StopTheLie.com Submitted: 01/12/2010
--This illustrates a nasty little secret about how the "public mind" operates. Edward Bernays (one of the fathers of modern propaganda) summarized it this way in his book titled, logically enough, Propaganda:

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested...It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world."

Unfortunately, those who "pull the wires of the public mind" (via their control of the consolidated media, the government and education system) will never “guide the world” in a way that weakens their position of power. In fact, they will do everything they can to lure the masses (with shiny objects, scandals, sex, gossip, etc.) away from discovering the meaning of "substantive thought" or truth.

How Goldman Sachs Made Billions in 4 Easy Steps
Source: TheEconomicCollapseBlog.com Submitted: 01/09/2010
--The following is how Goldman Sachs made tens of billions of dollars from the economic collapse of America in four easy steps....

Step 1: Sell mortgage-related securities that are absolute junk to trusting clients at vastly overinflated prices.

Step 2: Bet against those same mortgage-related securities and make massive bets against the U.S. housing market so that your firm will make massive profits when the U.S. economy collapses.

Step 3: Have ex-Goldman executives in key positions of power in the U.S. government so that bailout money can be funneled to entities such as AIG that Goldman has made these bets with so that they can get paid after they win their bets.

Step 4: Collect the profits - Goldman Sachs is having their "most successful year" and will end up reporting approximately $50 billion in revenue for 2009.

Don't Be Terrorized
Source: Reason.com Submitted: 01/09/2010
--What about your chances of dying in an airplane crash? A one-year risk of one in 400,000 and one in 5,000 lifetime risk. What about walking across the street? A one-year risk of one in 48,500 and a lifetime risk of one in 625. Drowning? A one-year risk of one in 88,000 and a one in 1100 lifetime risk. In a fire? About the same risk as drowning. Murder? A one-year risk of one in 16,500 and a lifetime risk of one in 210. What about falling? Essentially the same as being murdered. And the proverbial being struck by lightning? A one-year risk of one in 6.2 million and a lifetime risk of one in 80,000. And what is the risk that you will die of a catastrophic asteroid strike? In 1994, astronomers calculated that the chance was one in 20,000. However, as they've gathered more data on the orbits of near earth objects, the lifetime risk has been reduced to one in 200,000 or more.

So how do these common risks compare to your risk of dying in a terrorist attack? To try to calculate those odds realistically, Michael Rothschild, a former business professor at the University of Wisconsin, worked out a couple of plausible scenarios. For example, he figured that if terrorists were to destroy entirely one of America's 40,000 shopping malls per week, your chances of being there at the wrong time would be about one in one million or more. Rothschild also estimated that if terrorists hijacked and crashed one of America's 18,000 commercial flights per week that your chance of being on the crashed plane would be one in 135,000.

Health Care Reform as a Backdoor National ID
Source: Huffington Post Submitted: 01/07/2010
--Michael Ostrolenk of the Liberty Coalition organized a group letter against an insurance mandate. The letter explained,

"The 'individual mandate' is a section of the bill that requires every single American to buy health insurance--whether or not they want it or feel they can afford it--or break the law and face penalties and fines. Consequently, the bill does not actually 'cover' 30 million more Americans--instead it makes them criminals if they do not buy insurance from private companies. We hope you agree that it is unconscionable to force people to buy a product from a private insurer. This would effectively be a tax--and a huge one--paid directly to a private industry."

Mr. Ostrolenk explained to me, "to create and implement a clearly unconstitutional medical insurance mandate, the federal government will need to issue all Americans a medical identification number to ensure compliance with the law which would clearly be a national id system. It's all about more tracking and control of a free people."

Yale society's skull-turned-ballot box to be sold
Source: Associated Press Submitted: 01/06/2010
NEW YORK – A human skull that apparently was turned into a ballot box for Yale's mysterious Skull and Bones society is going on the auction block.

Christie's estimates the skull will sell for $10,000 to $20,000 when it is auctioned on Jan. 22. Fittingly, the auction house has agreed to keep the seller's name a secret. On Monday, it described the person only as a European art collector.

The skull is fitted with a hinged flap and is believed to have been used during voting at the famous society's meetings. The auction house said it also may have been displayed at the society's tomblike headquarters on Yale's campus in New Haven, Conn., during the late 1800s.

Keynesianism Delivers a Decade of Zero
Source: CampaignForLiberty.com Submitted: 01/05/2010
This past week we celebrated the end of what most people agree was a decade best forgotten. New York Times columnist and leading Keynesian economist Paul Krugman called it the Big Zero in a recent column. He wrote that "there was a whole lot of nothing going on in measures of economic progress or success" which is true. However, Krugman continues to misleadingly blame the free market and supposed lack of regulation for the economic chaos.

--Afterall, Krugman is still scratching his head as to why "no" economists saw the housing bust coming. How in the world did they miss it? Actually many economists saw it coming a mile away, understood it perfectly, and explained it many times. Policy makers would have been wise to heed the warnings of the Austrian economists, and must start listening to their teachings if they want solid progress in the future. If not, the necessary correction is going to take a very long time.

The Austrian free-market economists use common sense principles. You cannot spend your way out of a recession. You cannot regulate the economy into oblivion and expect it to function. You cannot tax people and businesses to the point of near slavery and expect them to keep producing. You cannot create an abundance of money out of thin air without making all that paper worthless. The government cannot make up for rising unemployment by just hiring all the out of work people to be bureaucrats or send them unemployment checks forever. You cannot live beyond your means indefinitely. The economy must actually produce something others are willing to buy. Government growth is the opposite of all these things.

Internal Revenue Service agents already try to catch tax cheats and moonshiners. Under the proposed health care legislation, they would get another assignment: checking to see whether Americans have health insurance.

That's one of several key duties the IRS would assume under the bills that have been approved by the House of Representatives and Senate and will be merged by negotiators from both chambers.

How Terahertz Waves Tear Apart DNA

Terahertz waves pass through non-conducting materials such as clothes , paper, wood and brick and so cameras sensitive to them can peer inside envelopes, into living rooms and "frisk" people at distance.

The way terahertz waves are absorbed and emitted can also be used to determine the chemical composition of a material. And even though they don't travel far inside the body, there is great hope that the waves can be used to spot tumours near the surface of the skin.

With all that potential, it's no wonder that research on terahertz waves has exploded in the last ten years or so.

--Alexandrov and co have created a model to investigate how THz fields interact with double-stranded DNA and what they've found is remarkable. They say that although the forces generated are tiny, resonant effects allow THz waves to unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the double strand that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication. That's a jaw dropping conclusion.

The magnitude of the rise, evident in nearly every corner of the state, surprised law enforcement officials, and gun advocates and opponents alike.

--Law enforcement officials said that, while the sharp increase in permits is unexpected, it does not portend any increase in gun violence.

While congressional reform efforts screech and shudder along, let’s take a moment to dream about real health care reform. Imagine a system that is genuinely transparent, competitive, and driven by consumers.

Right now, thanks to incentives built into the tax code, patients are locked into the health plans their employers choose. Consequently, most of us don’t have a clue what our health insurance and health care cost. We have no way to reduce those costs and no incentive to do so even if we could. Worse yet, it’s precisely when you need the system the most that it fails you.

People of Hawaii Pass Resolution Against Forced Vaccination
Source: Flu Reports (blogspot) Submitted: 12/17/2009
--The vote demonstrated the power of local community activists to rebuke "top down" policies advancing "mandatory" vaccinations during declared emergencies. The Council's decision backed the majority of people unwilling to lose health freedoms to Federal governors directing State health officials on behalf of BigPharma special interests.

The Resolution (237-09) urges State and Federal legislators in Hawaii "to amend vaccine laws to include medical
, religious, and philosophical exemptions from any vaccine program," including those declared urgent by health officials.

Proponents declared this a victory for health freedom--a warning to health officials seeking mandatory vaccination authorizations under Federal "national emergency" codes that expand State health official powers under the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act.

Please Enslave Me!

It shouldn't surprise anyone that people in positions of power will try to hold onto that power, and will use whatever arguments they can think of--however irrational or immoral--to try to justify the power they have. What's really sad--downright pathetic, actually--is when the powerless people vehemently argue why they should be powerless, oppressed, robbed, and otherwise controlled. Unfortunately, it happens all the time.

If, for example, one points out that "taxation" is merely theft by a different name, not only do the thieves object, but the victims of the theft also insist that it's not really theft, or that it's necessary theft, or that they approve of the theft, or have given their permission for someone to rob them. (If you doubt this, check out the comments on my "I'm Allowed to Rob You!" video.) If not for constant authoritarian indoctrination, people wouldn't make such bizarre arguments. Can you imagine the following, for example?

UN Cheif: UN Will Establish a Global Government
Source: PrisonPlanet.com Submitted: 12/16/2009
--Speaking about the agenda to impose targets on CO2 emissions, as well as a global tax on financial transactions and a direct tax on GDP, Ban Ki-moon told the Los Angeles Times in an interview, “We will establish a global governance structure to monitor and manage the implementation of this.”

“We need to have a very strong, robust, binding political deal that will have an immediate operational effect. This is not going to be a political declaration, just for the sake of declaration. It is going to be a binding political deal, which will lead to a legally binding treaty next year,” he told the Times’ Bruce Wallace, adding that a formal treaty would be signed by mid-2010.

I said it before, I'll say it again:

They KNOW that their "man-made global warming" narrative is fiction. This means their "solution" to the man-made global warming LIE is also fiction.

In other words, their solution has nothing to do with "global warming." The entire operation is nothing more than a device to transfer wealth and power to those running the scam.

Mission Not Accomplished
Source: Lew Rockwell Submitted: 12/15/2009
--First, a closer look at the jobs numbers shows that employment improved in sectors that benefited most directly from monetary or fiscal stimulus: government, healthcare, financial services, education and retail sales. Meanwhile, sectors such as manufacturing continued to shed jobs at an alarming rate. These dynamics actually exacerbate our economic imbalances. Recent trade deficit figures (in which the deficit-reduction trend of early 2009 has sharply reversed) show how this employment growth is preventing needed rebalancing. Essentially, the Administration is nurturing firms that cannot survive without subsidies and support.

Once stimulus is removed, the “saved” jobs will be among the first to go. If the President has not figured this out yet, I am sure Fed Chairman Bernanke has. As a result, the market should discount as pure bluff any claims from the Fed about an eventual “exit strategy” from current stimuli. Such an “exit” would bring about Bernanke's greatest fear – spiking unemployment.

The Real Reason Behind The Copenhagen Walk-Out
Source: PrisonPlanet.com Submitted: 12/14/2009
--the media has completely failed to highlight the real reason behind the walk out – the fact that funds from climate financing, originally allocated to go to the UN and then be doled out piecemeal to third world nations, would instead be paid directly into the coffers of the World Bank and IMF, organizations that have made a habit out of looting poorer countries with crippling debts that cannot be paid back, forcing such countries to hand over their entire infrastructure to globalist loan sharks.

In the leaked Copenhagen text that emerged last week, leaders of third world countries were horrified to discover that developed nations would take on less of a burden than anticipated and that more would be demanded of poorer countries despite the fact that any further cuts in CO2 emissions would further cripple their flimsy economies and poverty-stricken people.

Billionaire elitist George Soros subsequently told Copenhagen delegates how poorer nations would be forced to take on what he described as “green loans” in the name of combating climate change, a policy that would land the already financially devastated third world with even more debt, payable to globalist institutions such as the IMF.

Poor Children Likelier to Get Antipsychotics
Source: New York Times Submitted: 12/14/2009
New federally financed drug research reveals a stark disparity: children covered by Medicaid are given powerful antipsychotic medicines at a rate four times higher than children whose parents have private insurance. And the Medicaid children are more likely to receive the drugs for less severe conditions than their middle-class counterparts, the data shows.

Those findings, by a team from Rutgers and Columbia, are almost certain to add fuel to a long-running debate. Do too many children from poor families receive powerful psychiatric drugs not because they actually need them — but because it is deemed the most efficient and cost-effective way to control problems that may be handled much differently for middle-class children?

Government confiscates money, government funnels it to well-connected special interests. Do the math.

In this case, we have a mechanism for stuffing the pharmaceutical industry's pockets with taxpayer dollars...and, with so many people learning about "vaccine damage," this has got to be easier than getting the "mandatory vaccinations" in place.

Innocent Guantánamo Torture Victim Released in Kuwait
Source: TruthOut.com Submitted: 12/11/2009
The long ordeal of Fouad al-Rabiah, an innocent man and a 50-year-old father of four, who had been in US custody for almost exactly eight years, finally came to an end today, when he was flown back to his homeland of Kuwait from Guantánamo, where he had spent the majority of those lost years, after several brutal months in US custody in Afghanistan.

Until the moment of his release, everything about his treatment at the hands of the US government was shameful.Twelve weeks ago, when District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly granted his habeas corpus petition, and ordered his release, she revealed the most extraordinary - and extraordinarily depressing - story. This shone the most unflinching light on Guantánamo as a place where men, who were rounded up for bounty payments by the US military's allies in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and were never adequately screened on capture, were then sent to Guantánamo. Once there, in the absence of any information to back up the administration's claims that they were "the worst of the worst," they became the victims of false allegations made by other prisoners (who were either coerced to do so, or were bribed with the promise of improved living conditions), and were then tortured and abused to make false confessions.

Torture is really good at producing ONE thing: confessions. Confessions eliminate the need for evidence. (Most human beings will confess to anything if tortured long enough - It makes no difference whether they’re a suspected heretic, witch, or enemy combatant.) Once a nation accepts this type of “justice system,” full-blown despotism is only a stone’s throw away.

Speak out against the torture regime? –Dare to challenge its policies? You might as well declare yourself a person who cares nothing for the safety of the nation. You might as well declare yourself a “terrorist sympathizer.” (Now, it is YOU who is the suspect.) Off to the gulag with you and your kind; where “evidence” of your evil plots (confessions) will be gathered via the enhanced interrogation techniques described in the article above.

Climate Colonialism: Poorer Nations To Take On Green Debt
Source: PrisonPlanet.com Submitted: 12/11/2009
Billionaire George Soros has suggested that poorer nations be persuaded to take on what he describes as “green loans” in the name of combating climate change, a policy that would land the already cripplingly poor third world with even more debt, payable to globalist institutions such as the IMF.

--The IMF and the World Bank are organizations that have made a habit out of looting poorer countries with crippling loans that cannot be paid back, forcing such countries to hand over their entire infrastructure to globalist loan sharks.

Two men who have exposed this monumental scam for what it is are former World Bank chief economists John Perkins and Joseph Stiglitz in their respective works "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" and "Globalization and Its Discontents."

In what amounts to little more than modern day colonialism, debt forgiveness requires countries to sell their health, education, electric, water and other public services to globalist corporations. Such “structural adjustment conditionalities” have led to massive cuts to health and education budgets in the third world.

The Free Competition in Currency Act
Source: Lew Rockwell Submitted: 12/10/2009
Over millennia of human history, gold and silver have been the two metals that have most often satisfied these conditions, survived the market process, and gained the trust of billions of people. Gold and silver are difficult to counterfeit, a property which ensures they will always be accepted in commerce. It is precisely for this reason that gold and silver are anathema to governments. A supply of gold and silver that is limited in supply by nature cannot be inflated, and thus serves as a check on the growth of government. Without the ability to inflate the currency, governments find themselves constrained in their actions, unable to carry on wars of aggression or to appease their overtaxed citizens with bread and circuses.  Read full article »

Healthcare: Baucus confesses his deception, but wants to harm you anyway
Source: DownsizeDC.org Submitted: 12/08/2009
"Please send another letter to Congress opposing the cancerous healthcare bill. There's new data you can use to make your case. Just borrow from (or copy and paste) the sample letter below . . .

'I'm pleased to learn that Senator Baucus finally confessed, during a debate in the Senate on Wednesday, December 2, that the true ten-year cost of the healthcare bill will be closer to $2.5 trillion than the nearly $1 trillion cost he has sold to the public.

Increasing numbers of other Americans are following what you do very closely. We are well aware that Congressional leaders have rigged the CBO score. We know that this has been done by delaying the start point for much of the spending so that it falls beyond the 10-year window evaluated by the CBO. In addition to the unsupportable true cost, there are also these problems . . .

The CBO -- Congressional Budget Office -- reported on Monday, November 30, that the healthcare bill is likely to increase insurance premiums for many people, not lower them. This is not what we were promised.

And Richard S. Foster, the chief actuary of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, estimates that the bill's health insurance mandates will cause . . .

* Individuals to pay $62 billion in fines between 2014 and 2019,
* Businesses to pay $118 billion in tax penalties

ENOUGH! Scrap this cancerous bill. Do it now!

If you want to you can check my sources here (though you guys should already know this stuff) . . .' "
