The Senate is set to vote to close debate on ObamaCare Sunday night/Monday morning at 1am. Under the cover of darkness they are planning to ram through the bill over the objections of the American people.

Recent polls have found:
Only 32% say ObamaCare is a "good idea" – NBC, 12/16

36% support, 61% oppose ObamaCare – CNN, 12/10

Some of the main problems with the bill:
1) Increases overall costs. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis says this bill will drive up premiums for every person that currently buys health insurance.
2) The bill cuts hundreds of billions in Medicare funding including its most efficient program, Medicare Advantage.
3) The bill forces every American to buy insurance that meets the standards set by a Health and Human Services commission or face fines and imprisonment
4) Every American will be required to file proof of acceptable health insurance with the IRS when taxes are paid each year. (This is the enforcement mechanism of the requirement to buy insurance)
5) Uses taxpayer money to fund elective abortion and does not provide employment protection for health professionals that refuse to participate in abortions
See detailed analysis:
6) The bill does not start giving any benefits until 2014 although the new taxes start right away. (This delay of benefits was designed to make the bill look less expensive in the CBO 10 year cost analysis of the bill)
7) Includes a hundreds of billions of dollars in new taxes and creates over 100 NEW government entities.

Governor Huckabee is the keynote speaker at a major rally against ObamaCare TODAY (Sunday) in Omaha, Nebraska.

The rally will be held at the Omaha Music Hall, 17th and Capitol. Doors open at 2 PM. Rally starts at 3 PM.

Nebraska Democrat, Senator Ben Nelson has caved in his opposition to the Senate Health Care bill. Nelson's surrender paves the way for Senate passage of the bill sometime this week. This rally will put huge pressure on Nelson to drop his support.
