Thats right! Obama knows full well that his bill won't pass. It's almost the same bill he submitted before and couldn't get democrars on board to support it. So why the big showy speech? Why this push to travel across the country and "sell" it?
As with all things Obama, this is about holding onto power. He is doing all this in an attempt to blame republicans for his failure, to portray them as unreasonable, and against the interests of the people. This whole thing is nothing but a political gamble, a chess move to remain king!
And it will work - you guys make yourselves look like knuckle-draggers with each passing month.
From what I have heard, which ain't much, is that the program would be paid for by taxes on the rich. All difficulties will come from the Republicans who will fight, or at least pretend to fight it to the death, because they are so protective of and represent the lower classes.

In a rather desperate effort to divert the gaze of the American people away from the wreck that is his presidency, Obama, in conjunction with his press secretary, has started to call the various scandals that have...

Thought some of you right wingers might be interested in seeing what some ACTUAL socialists think of the health care bill. Not that I expect any of you to admit that Obama isn't socialist by any definition of the word...
