Obama: "We're not campaigning anymore. The election's over" spoken to John McCain at the health care summit/setup.
Obama: "Jobs must be our No. 1 focus in 2010." State of the Union Address.
President Barack Obama, surounded by health care personnel, speaks about healthcare reform from the East Room of the White House in Washington March 3, 2010. President Obama on Wednesday said it is time to pass his healthcare overhaul using only a slim Democratic majority in Congress if necessary.So, here he is again using the White House for another campaign speech pushing health care. Note that he did not invite one doctor to attend the big health care summit but instead used them as props for this campaign appearance where he urged supporters of his dangerous scheme to "make your voice heard."
One wonders if these "doctors" were the same bunch of quacks who showed up in the White House Rose Garden last October from Doctor's for America, an Obama front group and had to have white lab coats handed to them to make the picture Obama's perpetual campaign wanted to sell. With all the time these so-called health care professionals spend at the White House posing for campaign pictures it's no wonder people have trouble getting in to see a doctor when they need one.
Vulnerable House Dems Key to Stopping Obama Scare!
The reconciliation scam in the Senate is just a convenient sideshow; one where Obama would prefer you spend your energy. But ss Mata pointed out last week, the real fight in the final battle to defeat Obama Scare will come in the House of Representatives. House Democrats are being asked to put their careers on the line in a vote which will overturn decades of tradition with no guarantee that the Senate will even follow suit. Smarter House Dems may not be willing to walk off the plank for the sake of Obama's ego.
Slate has the details.
It is imperative that if your congressman is on the list of swing Dems you should do as Obama suggests and "make your voice heard" by demanding your representative vote against this monstrosity that the overwhelmingly majority of the American people want defeated.
We've come this far. Let's finish the job and defeat this bill!
