Weasel Eric Massa vs. Warrior Jim Bunning

WASHINGTON: The balance of health care reform lies in the hands of weasels. Case in point, former Rep. Eric Massa is claiming that he alone wielded the decisive vote in the House on pending health care legislation, and now he has been forced out of Congress by the White House in order to shore up support for passage of the bill.

An initial gut reaction to Massa’s claim is that the White House will stop at nothing in order to ram rod legislation that will fundamentally change this country, even if it means destroying a congressman’s career. It is true that to date there have been promises made, bribes taken and bullying employed to secure votes for socialist style health care reform. But if we turn a light onto the players of this debate, regardless of which side they favor, we find a house full of cockroaches scurrying for a dark crevice to hide within. Few in Congress are untainted by the corruption that exists there.

This is not to say that courage and honor do not exist in Washington, but their manifestations are rare, and when they do present themselves, the person exhibiting these attributes is denigrated and vilified. Senator Jim Bunning’s recent actions in the Senate are a fantastic example of legislative courage. Senator Bunning stuck to his ground opposing unfunded mandates by blocking a $10 billion spending bill. The media was quick to react though.

Massa Resigns, Smeared for Opposition to Health Care

Eric Massa Resign, Victim of Smear CampaignWASHINGTON: Democratic Representative Eric Massa resigned from the House yesterday to avoid an ethics probe that would tear his family apart. Massa charges Rahm Emanuel with smearing him due to his questioning of the Socialist Health Care bill.

Massa frankly admitted making inappropriate remarks to a staffer making a congressional enquiry unnecessary, however the House leadership wished to pursue the matter to pressure him to resign. Massa had voted against the health care proposal and Pelosi wanted him replaced with someone who would vote for it. Massa responded to a caller to his weekly radio show on WKPQ Power 105 FM:

The leadership of the Democratic Party have become exactly what they said they were running against. They have become exactly what we all ran against. You cannot effectively govern this country without the consent of the governed. The entire nation has said, “Let’s rewrite the health care bill, let’s find what we can agree upon.” No, no, no, no, we are going to ram this down the throats of the American people and anyone who stands in the way of doing that, is going to be smeared.”

Never mind the will of the people, Queen Pelosi will rule as she deems fit. King George was never this bad.
