Sleeping Giant Awakes and Democrats Blink
Today Senator Chuck Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said that senators are excluding a provision on end-of-life care from the House bill. This is a major victory for ordinary Americans.
As senior citizens voice their displeasure with “death-panels” and other provisions in the House bill, the Democrat leaders are grudgingly realizing that maybe, just maybe, some provisions in their House bill will not pass with the American public.
The most recent polls show that the demonizing tactics of President Obama and Speaker Pelosi have failed to cover the growing grassroots activism that is rising among ordinary Americans.
With the mainstream media, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, and the New York Times, shilling for the Left, the Democrats have almost complete control of their message. Except they keep forgetting Americans live in a conservatively plural nation who have access to the new media.
So what do Americans know? We know the marching orders emanating from the Democratic Party and President Obama are reaching Americans, but Americans have made up their own minds that what they see is growing government intrusion in their lives.
Many Americans, polls showing the majority of Americans, who were passive in the past when it came to the legalization of abortion and the removal of prayer in school have met their tipping point. They see the naked aggression that many Democrats and Liberals are doing and have decided on their own to voice their displeasure of the creeping growth of the government take over of America.
Especially when they see the double standard of how the anti-Bush protests were covered compared to the overwhelming negative coverage of painting ordinary Americans as “Nazis“, “un-American“, and “angry mobs“.
The sleeping giant has awoken and the proponents of health care “reform” are in for an old fashion butt-whooping if they continue to dismiss genuine grassroots concern of the many provisions in the House bill.
2010 can’t come soon enough.
