Is he ever going to pay attention and tell the whole truth? From a radio address you might want to read the highlights from:
Let's take it apart: "Obama said illegal immigrants would not be part of the health care overhaul" Okay, then why is he using illegal immigrant numbers in the amount of people uncovered by healthcare who must, according to him, be covered?
"taxpayers would not be mandated to fund abortions" Read THIS and others you can find.. One thing is for certain; the Bill does not say "abortion will not be publicly funded through this Bill." And then Obama says....
"......and he does not intend a government takeover of health care — all claims that critics have made at contentious town hall-style meetings with members of Congress." But, how can they not? Read THIS, particularly about your losing your private coverage.
He also took a swipe at "death panels," an idea former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin introduced on her Facebook page........"As every credible person who has looked into it has said, there are no so-called death panels — an offensive notion to me and to the American people," Obama said. "These are phony claims meant to divide us."
Please see my piece below about the VA and health care, the linked article from which has this information: "Your Life, Your Choices" presents end-of-life choices in a way aimed at steering users toward predetermined conclusions, much like a political "push poll." For example, a worksheet on page 21 lists various scenarios and asks users to then decide whether their own life would be "not worth living." By the way...the article goes on to say "And as you might guess, only one organization was listed in the new version as a resource on advance directives: the Hemlock Society."
PLEASE Mr. President, it is very easy for you to speak behind a radio microphone with a teleprompter and tell us we're wrong, we misinterpret, 'that cable channel is causing people to be misinformed' (you don't mean MSNBC's lies, DO you), ....YOU ARE THE ONE CALLING FOR 'HONEST DEBATE' TODAY... Could you please come out from behind the teleprompter and TALK TO US with a person who reads the things WE see in your health care plan? Let us respond and YOU calm us down! You work FOR US. You let OUR GUY tell you where he feels we'll be in ten years after your health care's in place and YOU tell us where you think we'll be. Tell us how we who like our insurance now will still have it in ten years and HOW (because that can't work, Mr. President, YOU KNOW THAT). WHY NOT have this kind of real informative debate? Maybe you'll start understanding your plan better. If you can't or don't want to do this, TELL US WHY NOT. Thank you.
Oh, by the way....my Chicago cartoon from 1934 shows not much has changed, Mr. Obama, don't YOU THINK? Read the bottom poster (click and it enlarges for easier reading)...I think you'll like that part a lot, Barack. I don't.
