Obama's Health Scare Speech Tonight (7 PM CDT)

Barack Obama will speak to the American public tonight on ABC at 7:00 p.m. (CDT). He will try to convince people that he understands the 1,018 page health care legislation. He doesn't. Do you think that he's actually sat down and read the entire thing, and even if he has, that he's had time to understand all of the convolutions within it? What about our federal legislators? Do you think they understand it? Actually, they do, all to well. That's probably why a number of Democrat senators refused to agree to an amendment that would require them to sign on to "Obama-Care," just like you and I will be. They know a raw deal when they see one, yet they're trying to convince you that the same pile of crap that they turned down for themselves is the right choice for America. On July 20, a Wall Street Journal opinion column noted this: Say this about the 1,018-page health-care bill that House Democrats unveiled this week and that President Obama heartily endorsed: It finally reveals at least some of the price of the reckless ambitions of our current government. With huge majorities and a President in a rush to outrun the declining popularity of his agenda, Democrats are bidding to impose an unrepealable European-style welfare state in a matter of weeks.... With the economy still far from a healthy recovery, and the federal fisc already nearly $2 trillion in deficit, Democrats want to ram through one of the greatest raids on private income and business in American history. The world is looking on, agog, and wondering why the United States seems intent on jumping off this cliff. Full column... Watch Obama's speech tonight. If you have kids, make them watch too. It will be a good opportunity to teach them that most politicians, even the president, are bloody liars. ALSO SEE: Obama's dwindling power - The Hill Leave a Comment...
