From our Dear leader.
"The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system." –in remarks after a health care roundtable with physicians, nurses and health care providers, Washington, D.C., July 20, 2009
You just can't make this stuff up.
Idiot in chief! Freudian slip perhaps? We can already see how well his reforms are working!
The most telling thing is the media blitz using our tax dollars to tell us how good his reform is.
He's the fricking President, ask for some airtime and try to sell it to us, its cheaper that way.
"We can already see how well his reforms are working!"
No we can't. Many of them aren't even in effect yet. What a stupid comment.
Its not a stupid statement at all.
McDonalds along with 30 other companies have asked for waivers so they can continue to offer their employees affordable health care.
The plan all along has been to force companies to do away with health coverage so the government can come to the rescue with the "Public option".
Problem is Obama didn't expect it to happen so soon and be forced to show his hand.
But you already knew that.
How many of you complainers have read, no, studied the 2000+ page heath bill?
The politicians who voted for and against it didn't even read it!
Study it and come back and complain. You might be considered credible if ya did that.
Obama is the titular head of the nation. He is no more responsible for the nations economic problems that are his kids.
Place blame where it is due.
"We the people" vote politicians into office then complain when promises are forgotten or broken.
MONEY controls politics. "Oil" is the boss! When are ya'll gonna learn this!
Vote for politicians who are dedicated to creating a new energy program which gets us off foreign oil!
Vote with "smarts!"...not emotion!
Obama is just a politician with an ego of the proper size to want to suffer the frustration and pain of being the "alledged" most powerful leader on the planet.
Doesn't seem like you've read it either;nevertheless, I don't have to read it to see the damage it has already caused......not to mention the unfairness in taking someone else's money without permission and using it for someone else. I work for a Quasi-State Governmental agency and we buy insurance just like everyone else; well our insurer informed us that due to this new health care plan, we would be seeing a 26% hike in our premiums. Our raises were only 3% ...... do the math. I lost money this year. According to the insurer, this is going on accross the board thoughout the US. Also, I have trouble allowing a government to control the health care of all US citizens when they can't even effectively manage the different agencies they do run.
...and yer blamin" Obama for this?
Pls re-read my comment.
If you are involved in QUASI state gov't, I don't know why you don't fall into the catgory of "voter."
I worked in mid-management in state gov't.
It didn't make me an expert on anything but my job.
If you haven't already, pls study the history of the Rothschilds, their involvement in the Fed reserve and the world banks.
Then study the effects of the power 'big" oil exerts over world economics and POLITICS.
Obama is but a pawn. Congress, the senate and Fed courts run this REPUBLIC...and they are all on the dole of the oil magnates and of the international cabal which has in mind the "ABSOLUTE" control of world economy.
The American voting public is naive to the max!
How do you feel about your taxes going for roads, defense, food and drug safety?
Health care is exactly the same issue.
force those who can't afford insurance to get it or face a fine. Figures that DC ers wouldn't understand what CAN'T AFFORD IT means. Another symptom of the real illness?
There will be subsidies for those who cannot afford it. Right now your tax dollars are going to pay for people who can't pay is it is, when they go to the emergency room for treatment. In that world, they get the most expensive and least effective treatment. Don't be dumb. Look something up.
The truly blind are those who cannot see! This describes
the American voting public.

President Obama again demonstrated his considerable ability to speak persuasively. His advocacy of his health care proposals was powerful and convincing, in my opinion. He explained the details of his proposals, the reasons for them and the way they will work. And he debunked the lies that have...

The reform passed how do you feel? What do you believe are the pros and cons? Do you believe your Congressman of your state made the correct decision? The forum is open to discussion.

I simply do not understand why people are fighting health care reform. I have heard the arguments against it and I keep saying how is that worse than being held hostage by the insurance companies? My insurance cost keeps going and in turn I get less and less coverage. They say the govt run...
