Does anybody, like OUR PRESIDENT who's supposedly so bright and so well spoken, want to take the time to TELL US what's finally in this bill? It's supposedly changed and morphs by the second, there IS a public option, there IS NO public option...which IS IT? We're arguing about WHAT?
And then Obama decides to talk in front of doctors , as if ALL doctors want his lousy plans, and even the White House admits..."As a visual plug for Obama's efforts, the White House arranged Monday for the president to have some 150 doctors representing all 50 states arrayed in the sun-splashed lawn area just outside the West Wing. To make sure no one watching at home or catching news footage later would miss the point, the physicians wore their white lab coats."
"When you cut through all the noise and all the distractions that are out there, I think what's most telling is that some of the people who are most supportive of reform are the very medical professionals who know thebest," said Obama, flanked by four doctors on stage for good measure..............
But, of course, there's this:
"But orthopedic surgeon for 25 years, said many doctors, nurses and patients strongly oppose Obama's proposals....They are greatly alarmed at proposed cuts in Medicare, which is the main source of health care for many people in Wyoming and elsewhere, Barrasso said in an interview Monday. He said doctors and hospitals also want provisions to protect them against "abusive lawsuits" by people claiming malpractice." The article goes on: "Obama broke no ground in his comments. He outlined the tenets of his health reform plan: expanded and affordable health coverage options for tens of millions of people, strengthened protections for those who already have insurance, and more time for health professionals to help patients with preventative and healing care.", R-Wyo., an
REALLY? Any DETAILS GIVEN by this AMAZING COMMUNICATOR? NO.
Obama said the country has heard all sides of the debate over the last few months and the time to act is now. ACT AT WHAT? WHAT BILL? WHICH ONE? Can you post it for JUST 72 HOURS? Why did YOUR PEOPLE BLOCK THAT? WHY? And WHAT HAPPENED TO PELOSI'S PROMISE??
Also, Civil Rights organizations are launching a huge push for THE HEALTH CARE BILL. Do they know illegal immigrants MAY not be covered on it? DO THEY KNOW WHAT THE BILL ENTAILS AT ALL, or does it just sound good to the leftwingers who want anything that's free, anyway?
Obama finished his press conference with this: "I want to thank every single doctor who is here," Obama said. "And I especially want to thank you for agreeing to fan out across the country and make the case about why this reform effort is so desperately needed. You are the people who know this system best. You are the experts."
