"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
(Thomas Jefferson)

Bryd stops Obamacare

Once again Senator Robert Byrd has stepped up to the plate. He stopped Hillarycare which was a Government run healthcare, and he looks poised to do it again. While not always agreeing with his votes, the one thing that has stood out is his love of our Constitution and Country. He knows the Constitution probably better then any member of Congress. Instead of Democrats going to Sen Byrd for advice, they shove him aside until they need his vote. He has forgotten more about how the Senate works then they will ever know.

Thank you Senator Byrd for standing up for Americans and our Constitution. You understand that there is no place in the Constitution that mandates Government run healthcare. Obama and the Democrat leaders must realize that fact but they are charging ahead without regard to what the Constitution says because it doesn't suit their agenda. As Leahy says we are not to question Congress. We bet Senator Byrd disagrees with Leahy has he has many times over the years.

So the word was that Democratic leaders worried about the health of Democratic Senate President Pro Tempore Robert C. Byrd, whom they needed as a 60th vote to end any Republican filibuster.

On Wednesday, Byrd voted against cloture — meaning he sided with the Republican filibuster.


Byrd could be an ally in stopping Obamacare. He killed Hillarycare 16 years ago. He just may have an inclination to do it again.
