HR 3962 passed the House late last night by a very slim 220-215 vote. One lone Republican Ahn “Joseph” Cao from Louisiana’s 2nd District joined the 219 Dumb-o-cRATS. Is he a turncoat or just easily fooled?
Cao comes to the House with an interesting story. A child refugee from Vietnam, he earned a degree in physics, studied for the priesthood, decided to become a lawyer, and had his home and law office destroyed by Katrina. Bobby Jindal trusted him – once. Last December he defeated nine-term “Freezer Money” Jefferson by a very slim 49.6% to 46.8% vote for the seat. So very new in Congress, the lone Vietnamese there, and representing a heavily Black hurricane-ravaged city, – he was vulnerable to arm-twisting by Obama. It was almost too easy.
Cao’s website statement: “Today, I obtained a commitment from President Obama that he and I will work together to address the critical health care issues of Louisiana including the FMAP crisis and community disaster loan forgiveness, as well as issues related to Charity and Methodist Hospitals. And, I call on my constituents to support me as I work with him on these issues”.
Joseph Cao is not our real problem Americans, – although being the lone turncoat he attracts attention. Our real problem is with the other 219 Socialists who either really want to turn this country into a People’s Republic, – or who aren’t smart enough to know they just violated their oath to our Constitution, and/or don’t care. These are the scumbags we must sweep from office next November.
No matter what happens now in the Senate [I expect Reid to “go nuclear”] – this Medical Monstrosity Bill can be overturned with enough fresh blood and new faces in Congress. Republicans, Conservatives, Independents, old-time Democrats, – you have about eleven months to effect a sea-change. If you fail, you will live out your old age in a Socialist Republic – with someone like Obama or Pelosi as your President. Your grandchildren will be really pissed at you for that.
