The Blame Game Is On And She's Not Taking It 
      Rep. Slaughter Blames Boehner, Glenn and Rush

My New York Congresswoman, Louise Slaughter, still just does not get it. She still wants to blame others and takes no responsibility for her lack of listening to her constituents, as well as for her lack of speaking truth.

In the email that I received last night (over to the right), the congresswoman blames House Minority Leader John Boehner for shining light on Slaughter's misuse of a Rules Committee procedure that was rightfully deemed The Slaughter Solution during the health care debate.

The congresswoman who still claims that everyone has a "right" to health care, instead of a right to the pursuit of it and who still wants us all to believe that we all have caps on our insurance coverage, also blames Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh for her tough times, coming up.

This is the same congresswoman that has yet to show where she is given the right in the U.S. Constitution to get into the people's health care or to take over the entire health care industry, to get coverage for a percent of the population that doesn't have any. --And notice she is STILL not letting it be known to that percent of people (32 million) that they will be forced to PAY for it or be fined or go to jail. I wonder whose fault it will be when they all catch wind of that little tid-bit. Or whose fault will it be, when people lose their jobs because their employers cannot afford to pay for what the health care bill calls for?

But of course, it is Glenn and Rush's fault that she is going to have a hard time with this next election.

Slaughter is trying so hard to turn things around and make the "Solution" thing, a good thing. When fact is, she will go down in history as that flaky congresswoman who sought to misuse a procedure of a committee that she was actually the chair of and should have known better.

Trying to push through a major piece of legislation, by a way that would not have required a true vote, was simply put, the work of a desperate politician that did not care about the rule of law or the American people. And try as she may, she cannot put the blame off on Glenn or Rush. The fault lies with her and her alone.

(Slaughter's email shows no responsibility for her actions.)

Dear Friend,

A few weeks ago I took one of the most important votes of my career. Along with hundreds of my colleagues in the House and Senate, we declared that health care shouldn't be a privilege in America, but a right.

But the journey to this historic legislation wasn't easy. In the latest scare tactic by the right, House Minority Leader John Boehner attempted to use procedures of the House as a last defense to his party's reliance on the word NO. He called a common house procedure "The Slaughter Solution" and placed the Rules Committee in his crosshairs of his assault.

The real solution came when we gave 32 million Americans access to the care they deserved.

A solution finally came when insurance companies no longer had the right to deny you care because of some yearly or lifetime cap meant to preserve their bottom line.

And the solution we've been looking for came when every parent with insurance would no longer have to lie awake at night worrying that they couldn't start their own business because their child had a preexisting condition.

I'm in the business of solutions and I need your help to stay in business.

We know that the Republicans are gearing up for an ugly fight this November and they're taking their cues from the Glenn Becks and Rush Limbaugh's of the world. America can do better. We need solutions in Congress, not roadblocks and attacks.

Thank you for your support,
