A Project

Obamacare, in my opinion, represents everything that's wrong with our Federal government.

It was branded as lifesaving, cost cutting, and a general cure-all for the woes of the health insurance industry. It was to be passed on an "up or down" vote. It was to be constructed with great transparency by the will of the people.

Instead, this maggot infested legislation was created behind closed doors by special interests. Votes gained were partisan and bought on the taxpayer dime. It was "deemed". There really are "death panels". Every day we find out how reality contradicts the intent of the legislation.

In general, virtually every promise that was made to the public regarding the scope and impact of this legislation has been broken.

So this is my project until November: every week or so, provide a list of every person who voted for this charlie-foxtrot socialist garbage. Provide updates next to their name. I want to actually document every politician's walkback of their vote, especially those who are up for re-election this fall.

I ask that any reader offer their suggestions on how to construct this. As of now, I will list the name, party affiliation (don't care if unnecessary), and color-code each entry. For example, if a certain Senator were up for re-election and to use the Nuremberg defense for their vote ("following orders"), the font of the quote will be yellow.

Version 1.0 will be up soon.
