Hannity: I Wish I Were Wrong
Yesterday’s passage of Obama Care certainly marked a dark day for American Democracy. “Somebody else wrote about this,” asked Sean, “but many can now say ‘where were you when the Republic died.’” Sean had a great exchange with Don from Lake Ronkonkoma who suffered along with most of Sean’s audience today. “You were correct as usual Sean,” a sorrowful Don praised,” you didn’t trust that Bart Stupak and you were sure he was going to fold in the end.” “I wish I was wrong,” Sean admitted, “Stupak had his arm twisted or maybe he was threatened.” We’ll never know the full extent of all the deals that took place yesterday afternoon but suffice it to say that Obama Care didn’t pass with the CSPAN type transparency that President Obama promised.

Jay Sekulow and Peter Johnson: The Legal Battle To Come
Jay Sekulow from the American Center for Law and Justice and Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson joined Sean on the show to discuss the next steps for the court battles to come after the passage of Obama Care. “The number of lawsuits here will be staggering,” argued Sekulow, “the individual lawsuits will likely measure in the thousands.” Sekulow continued, “there has never been a time when a mandate has come down requiring us to buy something we don’t want to buy and it is time we recognize that the Constitution has been shredded by this process both procedurally and now substantively.” “This has been the most divisive, dark, backroom dealing we’ve ever seen,” argued Johnson. “This is going to be very difficult,” Sean acknowledged,” though there is some precedence for it.”
Rep. Michele Bachmann: What Do We Do Next?
Sean was joined on the NewsMaker hotline by Minnesota Republican Michele Bachmann to discuss the political options left to fight Obama Care. “I just introduced legislation that will repeal this legislation,” announced Bachmann speaking of the recently passed health care reform legislation. “We’ve watched a vote against liberty yesterday,” a saddened Sean said, “there are things that have happened that I never thought I’d see in the United States of America. Congresswoman Bachmann spoke eloquently about the next steps including the push for Conservative Victory 2010. As Sean summed up, “If Conservatives unite around a solid message they will be successful, this is not brain surgery.” It’s certainly a simple, straight forward message. Very refreshing considering all that happened yesterday, no?
