McNerny Shuts Down His E-Mail and Voicemail

Once again our illustrious Congressman McNerney is tuning out his constituents. If you try to call his offices nobody answers and you can't leave a message (supposedly because his message box is full). You can't e-mail him through the House website because his e-mail has been turned off. How do you feel about a Congressman that makes himself as inaccessible as possible and does exactly what Pelosi tells him to do? Are you the least bit concerned that the current government in Washington is stuffing socialism down your throats and are so smug about it that they shut off the phones and the e-mail, and have phony virtual town halls that you also can't access?

Thank you. Your explanation of what is to come is what I have been trying to explain for months. But I have been attacked and ridiculed by folks who are only familiar with the Democrat talking points.
I keep saying to myself, "they'll find out" that I was telling the truth the first time they are denied life-saving treatment, etc.
And I don't know why they won't believe the failure in Massachusetts. Yesterday, the Secretary of Treasury of Massachusetts, Tim Cahill (a former Democrat, now an Independent) said that if this Healthcare bill passes, it will bankrupt the country in just 4 years.
For me, all I need to know is the character of the people pushing the plan. They are not to be trusted. They detest us. They disrespect our Constitution.
One of the most callous of Obama's friends is Ezekiel Emanuel, Rahm's brother, who is shaping health care reform. A doctor, Zeke mocks the Hippocratic Oath!! He has created the Federal Coordinating Council of Comparative Effectiveness Research whose purpose is to rate the value of human life. These are things that Dr. Emanuel has written:
"Strict youngest-first allocation directs scarce resources predominantly to infants. This approach seems incorrect. The death of a 20-year-old woman is intuitively worse than that of a 2-month-old girl, even though the baby has had less life. The 20-year-old has a much more developed personality than the infant, and has drawn upon the investment of others to begin as-yet-unfulfilled projects. -Lancet, Vol 373, January 31, 2009 425,
(Can you imagine being the parents of that baby who wasn't considered valuable enough by the Government to save?)
Adolescents have received substantial substantial education and parental care, investments that will be wasted without a complete life. Infants, by contrast, have not yet received these investments.... It is terrible when an infant dies, but worse, most people think, when a three-year-old child dies, and worse still when an adolescent does."
-Lancet, Vol 373, January 31, 2009, 428
"Vague promises of savings from cutting waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical records and improving quality are merely 'lipstick' cost control, more for show and public relations than for true change. Savings will require changing how doctors think about their patients. Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others."
-Health Affairs: The Policy Journal of the Health Sphere, 2008
"Every favor to a constituency should be linked to support for the health-care reform agenda. If the automakers want a bailout, then they and their suppliers have to agree to support and lobby for the administration's health-reform effort."
-Health Care Watch, November 2008
If these people control our health care, they control our very lives. If you are younger than 15, older than 40, you've got a problem. If you're younger than 2, or over 65, or mentally ill, or physically disabled, you've got an even bigger problem.
If you love someone who is over 65 or physically disabled and they contribute something important to your life, that won't count. Only if they pay taxes will their lives be rated as worthy.
RN, will you please consider pasting your response above into a new thread so more people can see it? Thank you for taking the time to try to help people understand.
