    Obama promised that the negotiations for the government takeover of medicine would be done on CSPAN with democrats, Republicans, and interested partied participating; complete transparency.

    So where are the select senate democrats and Obama minions writing their version of the government takeover of 16% of the economy? Behind closed doors, perhaps letting their hair hang down.

    Behind closed doors these people, most are radical leftists, are trying to figure how to take over the medical care industry regardless of what the people want. Once they control the medical industry they control the country, short of a revolution.

    Once they take control over the healthcare industry, they can decide who lives or dies by denying necessary treatment to the elderly, chronically ill, or anyone else they deem not worthy of life, because they are a "drain on the system."

    Exactly. Nothing in Washington is ever done in the open, period. What we do get to see is not the actual workings of the process.

    Some were msart enough to know the entire "promise" was bull hockey as soon as it crossed 0's lips.

    Unfortunately he promised the people cake and they fell for it. Apparently the people were dumber than the French revolutionaries were! They chopped off Marie Antoinette's head for promising cake.

    http://www.wordiq.com/definition/Caesar_Borgia

    Cesare Borgia (September, 1475 - March 12, 1507), Duke of Valencia, the illegitimate son of Pope Alexander VI (Rodrigo Borgia) and brother to Lucrezia Borgia.
    Cesare was born to the mistress of Rodrigo Borgia, an important cardinal and nephew of Pope Calixtus III. Borgia planned to use the forces of the papacy to further his own family. After years of scheming, Rodrigo had himself elected Pope in 1492.
    Cesare was initially groomed by his father for a Church career and was elevated by his father to the rank of Cardinal by the age of 22. Alexander VI staked the hopes for the Borgia family on Cesare's brother Juan, who was made captain general of the military forces of the papacy. When Juan was assassinated, Alexander was forced to substitute Cesare, despite the fact that this conflicted with Cesare's vows


    http://www.angelfire.com/mn3/mixed_lit/dumas_cenci.htm

    The most famous of these three brothers was Caesar Borgia. He had made every arrangement a plotter could make to be King of Italy at the death of his father the pope, and his measures were so carefully taken as to leave no doubt in his own mind as to the success of this vast project. Every chance was provided against, except one; but Satan himself [p. 364] could hardly have foreseen this particular one. The reader will judge for himself.
    *
    The pope had invited Cardinal Adrien to supper in his vineyard on the Belvidere; Cardinal Adrien was very rich, and the pope wished to inherit his wealth, as he already had acquired that of the Cardinals of Sant' Angelo, Capua, and Modena. To effect this, Caesar Borgia sent two bottles of poisoned wine to his father's cup-bearer, without taking him into his confidence; he only instructed him not to serve this wine till he himself gave orders to do so; unfortunately, during supper the cup-bearer left his post for a moment, and in this interval a careless butler served the poisoned wine to the pope, to Caesar Borgia, and to Cardinal Corneto.
    *
    Alexander VI died some hours afterwards; Caesar Borgia was confined to bed, and sloughed off his skin; while Cardinal Corneto lost his sight and his senses, and was brought to death's door.


    Fiction has apparently made Borgia more of a poisoner than history!!!!
