How Obama Will Convince America We Need ObamaCare

Government healthcare in America has hit a major brickwall.   That brickwall is an outraged and skeptical American public.  Millions of American citizens have gathered in cities across the United States over the past six months, increasing in numbers and frequency in August, resulting in a huge shift in popularity for the President in polls and a lockdown on any form of healthcare reform that the Democrats have introduced.  The American people will not accept a government option in any form whether it is dubbed “public”, “co-op” or “trigger”.  Nancy “PlastiGirl” Pelosi is desperate as she continues to inform the President that no reform will pass the House without a public option and centrist Democrats claim they will not pass a bill that does contain a public option.  Confusion reigns supreme in Washington as different declarations are espoused from advisors, spokespeople and leaders.  One minute we are informed that a public option is necessary and the next we are told that the public option is not necessary.  And we are told that everyone is ready to compromise even though no bi-partisan agreements have been floated publicly.

President Obama has planned his 112th (I lost count?) speech on healthcare as his third primetime address on the topic on September 9th in front of both Houses of Congress.  So what is the President going to say that will erase the confusion and convince us to follow his lead on healthcare reform?  Absolutely nothing will work because the only people who will bother to watch this drivel are the informed in America.  What the President needs is a crisis because that is what it took for President Bush to cram TARP down our throats and for Obama to cram the Porkulus Bill down our throats.  Unfortunately, neither of those immense government spending packages worked and the country is now very skeptical.  Government healthcare in other nations has proven to be disastrous and freedom-loving Americans will not allow such government intrusion in our lives.  Rahm Emanuel is promising that this speech will finish the job – that we will be convinced.  So how will the President induce a sense of crisis?

There does not seem to be enough time over the weekend to convince us that a Pandemic is upon us or develop the much needed manufactured crisis.  So the only option for Obama seems to be convincing Americans that we all need this reform and now.  Unfortunately, a CBS poll claims that less than a fifth of Americans say a health-care overhaul will help them personally.  And 31 percent think the government’s efforts will hurt while 46 percent say it will have no effect.  This appears to be a mountain that the President will not be able to climb.  So apparently, Wednesday night is going to be a waste of all of our time and will amount to a huge revenue loss for any networks ignorant enough to air the speech.

I personally will be listening to the speech so that I can give it the proper ridicule it will deserve while I create another sign for the next grassroots rally or protest.  The Progressives will not win on this one.  Even if they continue to step outside the bounds of the Constitution and pass healthcare reform using reconciliation, they will not win.  An outraged American public will not stand for that and our representatives do not want to witness what an outraged public will do – I suggest another Boston Tea Party with Representatives serving as our tea.  Hope Nancy, Harry, Barney, Schmuck and Obama know how to swim.

  1. Interesting post. Slaughter refuses to hold a town hall because it is beneath the dignity of her office. In Calif, tonight 2500 showed up. 80% denounced the public plan and applauded for two minutes when a speaker suggested that all of Congress be thrown out of office.

    Do you think that Congress is listening? Do you think the President is listening? Do you think their egos are too big to listen?

  2. NO CO-OP’S! NO TRIGGERS! A Little History Lesson

    No Triggers! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jason-rosenbaum/a-trigger-for-the-public_b_277910.html

    Young People. America needs your help.

    More than two thirds of the American people want a single payer health care system. And if they cant have a single payer system 77% of all Americans want a strong government-run public option on day one (86% of democrats, 75% of independents, and 72% of republicans). Basically everyone.

    According to a new AARP POLL: 86 percent of seniors want universal healthcare security for All, including 93% of Democrats, 87% of Independents, and 78% of Republicans. And 79% of seniors support creating a new strong Government-run public option plan, available immediately. Including 89% of Democrats, 80% of Independents, and 61% of Republicans, STUNNING!! Senator Max Baucus, You better come out of committee with a strong government-run public option available on day one.

    The History:

    Our last great economic catastrophe was called the Great Depression. Then as now it was caused by a reckless, and corrupt Republican administration and republican congress. FDR a Democrat, was then elected to save the nation and the American people from the unbridled GREED and profiteering, of the unregulated predatory self-interest of the banking industry and Wallstreet. Just like now.

    FDR proposed a Government-run health insurance plan to go with Social Security. To assure all Americans high quality, easily accessible, affordable, National Healthcare security. Regardless of where you lived, worked, or your ability to pay. But the AMA riled against it. Using all manor of scare tactics, like Calling it SOCIALIZED MEDICINE!! :-0

    So FDR established thousands of co-op’s around the country in rural America. And all of them failed. The biggest of these co-op organizations would become the grandfather of the predatory monster that all of you know today as the DISGRACEFUL GREED DRIVEN PRIVATE FOR PROFIT health insurance industry. And the DISGRACEFUL GREED DRIVEN PRIVATE FOR PROFIT healthcare industry.

    This former co-op would grow so powerful that it would corrupt every aspect of healthcare delivery in America. Even corrupting the Government of the United States.

    This former co-op’s name is BLUE CROSS/BLUE SHIELD.

    Do you see now why even the suggestion of co-op’s is ridiculous. It makes me so ANGRY! Co-op’s are not a substitute for a government-run public option.

    They are trying to pull the wool over our eye’s again. Senators, if you don’t have the votes now, GET THEM! Or turn them over to us. WE WILL! DEAL WITH THEM. Why do you think we gave your party Control of the House, Control of the Senate, Control of the Whitehouse. The only option on the table that has any chance of fixing our healthcare crisis is a STRONG GOVERNMENT-RUN PUBLIC OPTION.

    An insurance mandate and subsidies without a strong government-run public option choice available on day one, would be worse than the healthcare catastrophe we have now. The insurance, and healthcare industry have been very successful at exploiting the good hearts of the American people. But Congress and the president must not let that happen this time. House Progressives and members of the Tri-caucus must continue to hold firm on their demand for a strong Government-run public option.

    A healthcare reform bill with mandates and subsidies but without a STRONG government-run public option choice on day one, would be much worse than NO healthcare reform at all. So you must be strong and KILL IT! if you have too. And let the chips fall where they may. You can do insurance reform without mandates, subsidies, or taxpayer expense.

    Actually, no tax payer funds should be use to subsidize any private for profit insurance plans. So, NO TAX PAYER SUBSIDIES TO PRIVATE FOR PROFIT PLANS. Tax payer funds should only be used to subsidize the public plans. Healthcare reform should be 100% for the American people. Not another taxpayer bailout of the private for profit insurance industry, disguised as healthcare reform for the people.

    God Bless You
