Apocalypse Now: Senate Dems to use "Nuclear Option" to avoid filibuster, Force Nationalized Medicine

To mark my own "observance" of President Obama's first one hundred days, I offer easily one of the better summaries of the mess we have gotten ourselves into I have yet read; but no essay can adequately document the end result of the tsunami that the "seismic event" of electing this man--and these Senators--into office.
Evidence that the the worst is yet to come: the Democrats--with Obama's blessing--are about to use the so-called "nuclear option" to force single-payer Socialized medicine down the rest of our throats; even though the Senate clearly does not have the votes a filibuster-proof majority to do it the right way.
They are calling it "reconciliation"--and traditionally it has only been used for passing budgets--but not the legislation that spends the money. The Dems are now planning to use this budgetary "exception" to ram through the nationalization of one-sixth of the US economy.
Rationing: coming soon to a physician near you.
The other day I linked to what I then thought was the best Mark Levin show ever; but when I heard his Friday show--most of which was spent on the betrayal of the Dems and Obama in invoking "nuclear option"--I began to wonder. Check it out, especially the first 45 minutes or so, which includes a great interview with up-and-coming Republican Congressman, Paul Ryan.
If the next 1300 days are as horrific as Obama's first 100 have been, it is going to get very, very ugly.
