President Barak Obama healthcare summit meeting


How did President Barak Obama close the healthcare summit meeting attended by the Democrat and Republican members of Congress. After some six hours of debate the President gave notice to the Republicans and the American People that he will move forward to PASS a Healthcare Bill With or Without Their Votes or Approval.

It was evident to the viewers that the President was arrogant and disturbed to facts presented by the Republican members of Congress. The Democrat leadership and the President apparently have not understood that the present approved legislation is not acceptable by the majority of the American people. Major polls reflect a 60% disapproval of the existing bill.

The C-Span televised summit gave the Republican members an opportunity to highlight their Healthcare reform plan. The debate revealed that both parties can agree on a solution to parts of the legislation. Disagreements on tort reform, government paid abortion, government controlled healthcare, $500 billion cuts to Medicare, additional taxes to pay for the bill, mandated agencies to monitor the program, and the added cost to the deficit are some sticking points with the Republicans that need to be resolved.

.President Barak Obama and the Democrat members were allowed four hours of the debate to two hours for the Republican members. Normally when Congress debates, each party is allowed equal time of debate. Obama ended each topic with the last rebuttal, it was apparent that the time allotment was not fairly distributed.

There is much more that could be reported since it appears that the President and the Democrat leadership are determined to pass Healthcare leglislation.The people have notified their Representatives that the Healthcare bill is not in their best interest or that of the country in these troubled times as presently written.

.Take note that the Democrats have been in control of Congress since Jan 2007. With the election of Barrack Obama in 2008, the Democrats were in super majority control of our government. Candidate Obama promised change and promised jobs , transparent government, and to listen to the people if elected.

Now a little over one year, unemployment is at 9.7% and the economy has yet to recover. Congress continues to spend borrowed money and the deficit under the Obama administration and this Congress is $4.3 trillion, putting our nation at financial risk.

President Bush left office with a $1.3 trillion deficit of which $787 billion was to bail out the banking industry. Today the banks have repaid the $787 billion with interest reducing the Bush deficit to $600 billion. According to the tarp bill, repaid monies were to be used to pay down the deficit. The Obama administration and Congress have yet to return the funds to the treasury.

The American people are not being told the truth about the soaring deficit and the national debt. This Congress and the President are not listening to the people. The 111th Congress has a 70% disapproval rating, lowest in our history. The people need to demand that this Congress stop spending and provide the private sector jobs that was promised in 2008.

2/25/10 THE HEALTHCARE SUMMIT? C Span LIVE Healthcare Reform Plan. 2

Wake up America before it’s too late, call your Congressional Representatives and make them accountable. Without jobs the economy will not rebound. The Obama administration and Congress is telling the American people that we are in a recovery when that is not true.

President Lincoln once said ‘’ to remain silent is to be a coward ‘’ America, Let your voices be heard.

      Well what do ya know - I told you 4 weeks ago they'd blame the right for the failed rollout - not even a week after Obama's "apology" (for you people "finding" yourselves in trouble ha ha) he is blaming Republicans for all and any problem with Obamacare and he continues to do so...pathetic! When will citizens wake up and see through this phony and the Demoncrap party?

      Today Cong Pallone D IN THE MONKEY COURT said '' we need to fix it not nix it ''. It was reported today that the costs todate is $ 1 BILLION and still rising. Somehow the truth is out and it appears that the GOP members of Congress were RIGHT. WAKE UP AMERICA, POTUS/REID is not the way to keep pushing for this fraud of '' BAIT and Switch'' . REPEAL THE LAW if it can't be amended in a BIPARTISAN WAY. The destruction of the healthcare insurance industry is what POTUS/DEMS want! Government is the problem not the solution a past President once said. For those Dems who are listening consider the words of Lincoln '' to be silent is to be a coward''. AMERICA deserves better from our elected officials. Now is the time for all patriots to stand up to the corruption in Washington starting at the top.

      I am really surprised at the administration's reaction to the failed roll out. I mean I expected them to say that the programers were tea party people who conspired to sabotage the role out by messing with the know pull a Hillary (vast RW conspiracy) or a Wiener (hacker's made me do it) or even a .... Blabbermouth Schultz (lying about lying) but I guess they learned their lessons there and threw out those plays from the play book...although there is still time for Obama to blame Tea Party Hackers or the like...after all to not use those strategies would imply competence and we know that is nowhere to be found in this administration...if they do maybe I can claim I gave them the idea?

      An update , breaking news

      Today 6/28/12, the Supreme Court ruled that the Obamacare law is constitutional on the basis that the mandate to force citizens to purchase health care insurance is a TAX. During the Healthcare debates in 2009, President Obama said that the mandate IS NOT a tax. The President apparently lied.

      The President, shortly after hearing that the law is constitutional , appeared on television and said that the verdict by SCOTUS was ‘’ A victory for the American people’’. A massive tax is a victory? In 2014, the mandate will be in effect, it will be a massive TAX increase on the American people. The President and the Democrat leaders celebrated the win for the party in their efforts in passing the Healthcare legislation.

      The American people were lied to by the President and Congress in the process of approving the Healthcare bill. Now knowing that the mandate fine as ruled by SCOTUS is to be a TAX, will Congress continue the perpetration on the American people or will Congress revoke the law as unfair and unjust to the middle class who will be mostly affected by the Healthcare law.

      As speaker Pelosi said ’’ we need to pass the bill to find out what’s in it ’’.Speaker Pelosi emphatically stated that the mandate was a fine and not a TAX. The 111TH CONGRESS will go down in history as the most corrupt in our nation’s history. The Healthcare bill was passed by members of Congress prior to reading the bill, prior to a debate, no amendments were allowed and prior to the final bill being written.

      Note that the bill being voted on in House was not available on the floor at the time of voting. A violation of House rules.

      In Nov, the American people will vote for a President and a Congress in determining the future of our country. Will the American people vote for corruption and poverty or will they vote for prosperity and a new beginning? The 2012 elections will be the most important election of our time that will set the direction of our government for the present and future generations. **** This site is almost unbelievable.

      Jan 2007. With the election of Barrack Obama in 2008 the democrats

      TODAY, JULY 2, 2011

      Unemployment is 9.1%, there are 45,000 citizens collecting food stamps, the cost of gasoline and food has risen to historic levels and the National Debt under the Democrats control of Congress has increase $4.5 trillion and will exceed the $14.3 DEBT limit.

      All that President Barak Obama and the Democrats are saying is that the Republicans are at fault. The facts of the matter is that what they ( DEMOCRATS ) propose does not work. Obama and the Democrats want to spend ( borrowed money ) and tax to change the economy around ( they have had 2.5 years ). The Republicans want to cut spending and lower taxes across the board for everyone.

      It don’t take a fool to understand which plan is better?

      Well I for one agree that this country is headed down a dark path. If the current direction we are taking is not corrected we will end up worse than what Europe has been experiencing.

      What people need to understand is that the Democratic Party wants people to become dependent upon them for everything.

      This includes medicines, transportation and even food.

      I am not saying the people do not need a helping hand from time to time. We Americans are known for giving a helping hand to people all over the world.

      But a helping hand should be just that "help".

      The current system of "help" places many people in a rut that they can not get out of.

      i.e. Lets say you get laid off from your job. You have been an "productive citizen" your entire working life.

      You have been able to pay you bills on time and after a little while of job searching you still can not find work to replace the income you had.

      Meanwhile the savings has been spent paying the mortgage, groceries and gas for the vehicles.

      If you decide to go get food stamps to help tide you over there are certain requirements that must be met.

      1. If you have 2 vehicles you must sell one of them.

      If one the couple has a job and the other one is looking for a job, selling one of the cars puts the person looking for a job out of the search.

      2. If your vehicles are too "new" you must sell them and buy an older vehicle. This can lead to break downs and repairs further putting you in a hole.

      The entire system is broken unless you realize that the people who usually promote this system of welfare have much to gain if you become dependent upon "them" for you well being.

      I like Glen Beck. He is not afriad to tell it like it is and yep he make a lot of people really angry.

      Remember when candidate Barak Obama mentioned who he surronded himself with during the campaign,

      Check this out of whom he forgot to mention

      Glen Beck's show on Fox News is reporting explosive information that the main street press and media refuses to report to the public.

      Silence by ABC, NBC CBS, CNN, MSNBC and others is typical of how they refuse to report any of the negatives of the Obama administration and the inner workings of Washington,

      For example I wrote regarding finance reform and cap and trade

      I caught Glen Beck on Fox News, he was exposing the questionable relationships of Goldman Sachs( campaign funding to Barak Obama and some Dem's $33 MILLION ),the unions ( SEIU and the AFL-CIO ),Frank Raines (took $90 million out of Fannie Mae ),Joel Rodgers (the apollo alliance group, they wrote the Healthcare Reform bill for congress ),Al Gore ( investments in the Chicago Climate Exchange),Joyce foundation (connections with Barak Obama and Valerie Jarrett) and president Barack Obama.



      There are many reasons as to why certain groups or people would like to silence Glen Beck. Speak out and seek the truth from the government before we end up like Europe.
