Obamacare Passed Because the Truth About Obama and Obamacare Was Not Generally Known
Start with exposing the truth about Obama as a radical tool of the radical ACORN, SEIU and La Raza Thanks to the liberal mainstream media, it will be news to many. Thanks to Fox News, Andrew Breitbart and the other principals and promoters of the "Pimp and Pro" ACORN sting, ACORN is in disgrace but this week Obamacare will be in place.
Laura Ingraham acknowledged the passage of Obamacare in an e blast titled "What now?"
To the question "where do we go from here?," Ms. Ingraham responded:
"First, we must remember that elections have consequences. Years of big government 'compassionate' conservatism culminated in the speakership of Nancy Pelosi and the election of the most left-wing president in American history.
"The fact that we conservatives were able to fend off this health-care monster for so long is amazing. But the reality is, until true constitutional conservatives recapture Congress, the growth of government and the incineration of liberty will only continue apace.
"Beyond challenging the legality and constitutionality of what has transpired, we must now focus on a seat-by-seat annihilation of Democrats nationwide. Republicans will be in a prime position to take over. It's our job to ensure the RIGHT Republicans are lined up."
With all due respect, we must now focus on why Obamacare passed if we are to elect "the RIGHT Republicans."
Obamacare passed because ACORN's Obama became President and it turned out that many self-described "pro-life Democrats" are false self-advertisers.
Remember how the Dermocrats ousted Ric Santorum from his United States Senate seat from Pennsylvania in 2008: by running the supposedly pro-life Democrat Bob Casey?
The passage of Obamacare shows how important that con job was; if Santorum had still been in the Senate, the 60 votes to pass Obamacare in the Senate could not have been attained.
I'm not saying that there are no truly pro-life Democrats, of course, but the self-described ones in Congress are far fewer than the actual ones.
Phyllis Schlafly, president and founder of the conservative grassroots public policy organization Eagle Forum, made the following remarks after the public announcement that Democrat Bart Stupak (D-MI) would cast a "yes" vote for the Senate health care bill in the House:
"It is naive for any elected official, especially one who describes himself as 'pro-life,' to expect that a promise to issue an Executive Order that reasserts the intentions of the Hyde Amendment will be fulfilled by the most pro-abortion president to ever sit in the White House. Perhaps Mr. Stupak and his fellow pro-life Democrats forget that President Obama's first Executive Order was the repeal of the Mexico City Policy to allow for international funding of abortion.
"Not only would an Executive Order be rendered meaningless in the face of Congress passing legislation which actively provides for the massive expansion and funding of abortion services, but anyone who doubts the abortion tsunami which awaits this bill becoming law lives in a fantasy world."
"Barack Obama has lined every existing federal agency with the most dedicated pro-abortion ideologues, and we know that he will continue this pattern of pro-abortion appointments when it comes time for him to fill the over-100 bureaucracies created to administer his socialized health care program.
"Any formerly pro-life Democrat who casts a 'Yes' vote for this Senate health care bill tonight will be forever remembered as being among the deciding votes which facilitated the largest expansion of abortion services since Roe v. Wade.
"Mr. Stupak and his Democrat followers have now clarified that you cannot be pro-life and be a Democrat. If abortion was truly their biggest issue, they wouldn't willfully align themselves with the Party of Death.
"This vote will expose the myth of the 'pro-life Democrat.' With this single vote, the Democratic Party will divide our nation into the Party of Death and the Party of Life, and future elections will never be the same."
There is a reason that the pro-abortion forces did not rail against the Executive Order trick and I do expect Obama to sign it, in an attempt to maintain credibility. The reason that the most pro-abortion president in American history will sign it is that it will be declared void very quickly, since an executive order cannot trump an actual law (which Obamacare will become when Obama signs it).
With all due respect, there are truly pro-life Democrats. The huge problem is that there are very few of them among the persons entitled to vote in Congress. So the millions of truly pro-life citizen Democrats should take off the rose-colored glasses and join "the Party of Life."
Ms. Ingraham warned:
"As for ObamaCare, a total repeal will be exceedingly difficult. Once the 'right' to health care is established by law, good luck declaring it just a privilege. If you thought the health-care sob stories were bad over the last several months, just imagine how heart-wrenching they'll be come November. Yet there is much to be hopeful about. We are witnessing a long-overdue rebirth of conservatism. Many fine men and women are rising to the challenges before us.
"The only way to save this country from financial ruin is an all-out, frontal assault on the American Left and their congressional foot soldiers. I, for one, am more committed to this battle than ever before.
"Oh, and up next -- Baramnesty! After all, how else will Democrats survive the next election without 20 million new voters? I hope you all have some fight left, because we're only just getting started."

Michael J. Gaynor has been practicing law in New York since 1973. A former partner at Fulton, Duncombe & Rowe and Gaynor & Bass, he is a solo practitioner admitted to practice in New York state and federal courts and an Association of the Bar of the City of New York member.
Gaynor graduated magna cum laude, with Honors in Social Science, from Hofstra University's New College, and received his J.D. degree from St. John's Law School, where he won the American Jurisprudence Award in Evidence and served as an editor of the Law Review and the St. Thomas More Institute for Legal Research. He wrote on the Pentagon Papers case for the Review and obscenity law for The Catholic Lawyer and edited the Law Review's commentary on significant developments in New York law.
The day after graduating, Gaynor joined the Fulton firm, where he focused on litigation and corporate law. In 1997 Gaynor and Emily Bass formed Gaynor & Bass and then conducted a general legal practice, emphasizing litigation, and represented corporations, individuals and a New York City labor union. Notably, Gaynor & Bass prevailed in the Second Circuit in a seminal copyright infringement case, Tasini v. New York Times, against newspaper and magazine publishers and Lexis-Nexis. The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed, 7 to 2, holding that the copyrights of freelance writers had been infringed when their work was put online without permission or compensation.
Gaynor currently contributes regularly to www.MichNews.com, www.RenewAmerica.com, www.WebCommentary.com, www.PostChronicle.com and www.therealitycheck.org and has contributed to many other websites. He has written extensively on political and religious issues, notably the Terry Schiavo case, the Duke "no rape" case, ACORN and canon law, and appeared as a guest on television and radio. He was acknowledged in Until Proven Innocent, by Stuart Taylor and KC Johnson, and Culture of Corruption, by Michelle Malkin. He appeared on "Your World With Cavuto" to promote an eBay boycott that he initiated and "The World Over With Raymond Arroyo" (EWTN) to discuss the legal implications of the Schiavo case. On October 22, 2008, Gaynor was the first to report that The New York Times had killed an Obama/ACORN expose on which a Times reporter had been working with ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief.
