Help Expose Elena Kagan, Obama's Pro-Abortion Supreme Court Nominee
No matter what President Obama and his allies will claim, abortion was a litmus test in nominating Kagan to the Supreme Court. Obama recently said "...I want somebody who is going to be interpreting our Constitution in a way that takes into account individual rights, and that includes women's rights, and that is going to be something that is very important to me."
Health overhaul law potentially costs $115B more
President Barack Obama's new health care law could potentially add at least $115 billion more to government health care spending over the next 10 years, congressional budget referees said Tuesday. If Congress approves all the additional spending called for in the legislation, it would push the ten-year cost of the overhaul above $1 trillion — an unofficial limit the Obama administration set early on.

CNBC’s Rick Santelli Rips Key Democrat For Ignoring Fannie/Freddie Reform
Democrats still don’t get it, and they refuse to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government mortgage companies that sparked the meltdown by giving high-risk loans to people who couldn’t afford it. Standing up for American taxpayers, CNBC’s on-air editor, Rick Santelli teed off on Rep. Paul Kanjorski’s (D-PA) claim that Democrats’ couldn’t reform Fannie & Freddie in their financial regulation bill because it was “too complicated,” asking: “It’s too complicated? You think taxpayers that go to work to pay the money you are subsidizing, it will end up a half a trillion, do you think they think complicated is an excuse?”
*** Missouri Health Care Freedom Act Passes Final Hurdle *** (No link)
The Missouri Health Care Freedom Act passed it's final legislative hurdle in the Missouri House today. The bill SS SCS HCS HB 1764 was a compromise bill coming out of a Joint Senate and House Conference Committee after the Missouri Senate passed it's own Version of SS SCR25, The Health Care Freedom Act, last week. The Missouri Senate substitute bill changed the language of the bill, taking it to a vote of the people as a change in state statute, as opposed to the passed House Version that took the vote to the people of Missouri as a Constitutional Amendment. The committee compromise changed the house version to the Senate language changing state statute by voter approval.
The measure, which was debated for about 2 hours on the House floor passed by a wide 108-47 margin. This bill will now be taken to a vote of Missouri citizens in the August Primary.
The language of the bill "A LAW OR RULE SHALL NOT COMPEL, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, ANY PERSON, EMPLOYER, OR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY HEALTH CARE SYSTEM." A PERSON OR EMPLOYERS MAY PAY DIRECTLY, AND SHALL NOT BE REQUIRED TO PAY PENALTIES OR FINES FOR PAYING DIRECTLY FOR LAWFUL HEALTH CARE SERVICES.' "SUBJECT TO REASONABLE AND NECESSARY RULES THAT DO NOT SUBSTANTIALLY LIMIT A PERSONS' OPTIONS, THE PURCHASE OR SALE OF HEALTH INSURANCE IN PRIVATE HEALTH CARE SYSTEMS SHALL NOT BE PROHIBITED BY LAW".
This bill is a direct challenge to the federal health care bill rejected overwhelmingly by the American citizens, and conceived under the cover of darkness behind closed doors. Missouri now Joins the Commonwealth of Virginia, Florida and Oklahoma in the constitutional challenge protecting Sovereign State's Rights.
The final stage of this measure will be a vote of the people on August 4th in the State wide Primary election. It is important that not only Missourians, but all Americans join the fight to pass this once and for all. The opponents are already organizing with their money. Missouri sovereignty will need much financial assistance from All Americans to be a light house for freedom from government tyranny.
