Barack Obama wants to jam through his takeover of health care by March 18th – before the House takes an Easter recess. That way Democrats won’t have to face you and your opinions in those troubling “town hall meetings.”

They are pulling out all the stops – and now, liberal Democrat Rep. Eric Massa says he was forced out of Congress because of his “no vote” on government health care.

Here’s a guy that didn’t like the health care bill because it didn’t go far enough now saying he’s being forced out by his own party based on accusations of sexual harassment. National Journal quoted Massa: “Mine is now the deciding vote on the health-care bill, and this administration and this House leadership have said, quote unquote, they will stop at nothing to pass this health-care bill. And now they’ve gotten rid of me, and it’ll pass.”

National Journal also reported Massa saying: “If Rahm Emanuel wants to come after me, maybe he ought to hold himself to the same standards I’m holding myself to, and he should resign.”

He further described what he meant by strong-arm tactics with some accusations of his own: “Rahm Emanuel is son of the devil’s spawn. … He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote. He would strap his children to the front end of a steam locomotive.”

Then, Massa says he was bullied while taking a shower in the congressional locker room: “I am showering, naked as a jaybird, and here comes Rahm Emanuel, not even with a towel wrapped around his tush, poking his finger in my chest, yelling at me.”

Nice.

Barack Obama is pushing socialized medicine as if his political life depends upon it. The fact of the matter is millions of innocent lives – including, perhaps, our own – depend upon this government monstrosity failing.

Despite the election of Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, the Senate wants to bypass the super-majority needed for this vote by convincing the House to pass their abortion-funded government controlled health-care bill unchanged.

The leap of faith (off the cliff) they are asking House members to make is essentially, “Trust us” (wink-wink), “Vote for the terrible Senate bill with abortion funding, and health-care rationing, and we’ll ‘fixit’ after your blind vote of faith.”

Should the House members buy their lethal legislation, there is nothing that can stop the Senate from saying, “Too bad, we couldn’t ‘fix’ the bill like we promised. Oh well, it’s heading to Obama’s desk for signature and will be imposed on the American people.”

While the Democrats rant and rave and push and threaten, members of Congress must hear from us. They need to fear their constituents’ more than they do their party leadership. The health-care showdown depends upon what we do right now.

Got 30 minutes? I can’t think of a better way to use it than to stop the worst bill ever to be introduced in Congress by making 31 calls to the swing votes in the U.S. House of Representatives. (Thanks to Dick Morris for compiling this list.)

These are the people who most need to hear from us, as well as your own member of Congress.  If you have a fax machine, write a message on a sheet of paper including a request for a written response to the numbers in the middle column here:

Then, reserve your place at the event that could very well change the direction we are headed as a nation: MayDay2010.org. It is being held on Saturday, May 1, at the Lincoln Memorial beginning at sunrise. And prayerfully consider joining us in a 40-day fast (from something) proceeding the event, beginning Tuesday, March 23.
