Obama appeals for support on health care

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama accused insurance companies of placing profits over people and said Republicans ignored long-festering problems when they held power as he sought to build support Monday for swift passage of legislation stalled in Congress.

“Let’s seize reform, the need is great,” Obama said at an appearance that had the feel of a campaign rally.

“How much higher do premiums have to rise before we do something about it?” said Obama, making the first in an expected string of out-of-town trips to pitch his plan to remake the health care system.

The president said dismissively that Republican critics in Congress contend they want to do something about rising health care costs but failed when they held power. “You had 10 years. What happened? What were you doing?” he said to applause from an audience at Arcadia University.

Obama made his appeal as Democratic leaders in Congress worked on a rescue plan for sweeping changes in health care that seemed earlier in the year to be on the brink of passage. The current two-step approach calls for the House to approve a Senate-passed bill despite opposition to several of its provisions, and for both houses to follow immediately with a companion measure that makes a series of changes.

Obama appeals for support on health care

It will NEVER die. Obamacare will stay on the table for as long as Barack Hussein Obama is the POTUS.

And when he’s NOT the POTUS, if Americans are still brain dead and vote in another Dem/Libber, we’ll see a continued push for more of the same. It’s a Dem/Libber mindset thing.

Nationalized healthcare was a priority for Hillary Clinton back in the days when Bill Clinton was the President, she never got anywhere with it, and remember, the economy was much better off over during the Clinton administration than it is under Obama.

I’m NOT waving the Clinton flag and saying he was a great guy, or anything even close to it, but I do know this, as big a *horn dog* as Ol’ Bubba was, the nation was better off financially and Clinton left a budget surplus when he left office. Really. He did.

Ask the Dem/Libbers. They will tell you, over and over again how Ol’ Bubba left the money in place.

Sadly, he did it by hurting America, he did it by cutting the military and our Intelligence services to the bone, but Ol’ Bubba left a SURPLUS. The Dem/Libbers just love to point that out, but it seems they forget to mention that the way Clinton got that surplus was exactly what led to the attacks of 9-11.

We all know that the libbers couldn’t pass a national healthcare program under Clinton, and as long as GWB was in office, we didn’t hear of nationalized healthcare.

Iraq, and amnesty for ILLEGALS, those were the big worries under Bush.

So, a Dem/Libber gets elected again and voila, up pops the devil and healthcare for all is a big topic again, and pretty soon we’re going to see a renewed push for what the Dems and RINOs call Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

Amnesty. By ANY name.

Obama’s stated goals across more than a year of struggle have been to extend coverage to millions who lack it, ban insurance industry practices such as denying coverage on the basis of pre-existing conditions and cut costs.

It all looks good, at first glance. It sounds good too, very compassionate. Obama wants to help the unwashed masses. Only problem is, it’s all a lie, especially the cost cutting part. If you think healthcare is expensive now, just wait until the Dem/Libbers make it FREE.

Bush bailouts, Obama bailouts, ObamaCare, and we are the ones paying the fare.

The American taxpayer is broke. We don’t have anything left to pay with. The government is broke too, just one little problem with the government being broke, they PRINT more money, PAPER MONEY, and we are supposed to buy into the idea that the PAPER MONEY is real money. It’s not. But Washington calls up the Treasury and tells them, ‘we need another run from the $100 bill presses, lets do another $30 TRILLION this month.’

What do we have backing that paper? That’s the BIG question.

The Democratic plan includes greater consumer protections and a ban on discriminating against customers with pre-existing conditions. Small businesses also would receive a tax credit this year. The White House hopes the immediate changes created by the bill would give Democratic candidates a strong platform on which to campaign in the fall.

Who says the MSM never tells the truth? Read that last line in the above paragraph and the real heart of the matter will be fully explained. “the bill would give Democratic candidates a strong platform on which to campaign in the fall.”

Yep, kinda figured that was what it was ALL about…

    The only person Obama cares about is Obama! He doesn’t give a rat’s tush about anyone else. National Health Care that is jammed down our throats will be his crowning achievement! His crown of glory if you will.

    What the nation has woken up to is the fact that the POTUS cares nothing about the United States. Only about the Kingdom called Obama!

    When he was in Arcadia today spewing lies from his purple lips about health care, NO Tea Party people were allowed. The same for tomorrow when the narcissist lands in St Louis. The PUBLIC is not allowed to attend, just his plants. Screw that marxist bastard, I wouldn’t attend if I could.

    I wouldn’t walk next door to see the little fraud. He knows he must get obamacare passed or it curtains for his presidency. No stone will be left unturned on his march toward that.

    That was a great video. I’ve always liked “Casey at the Bat” and often felt sorry for Casey in the end. But for the liberals of Mudville and Himself, the final pitch is heading for the plate and I’m waiting for the umpires call—”Strike Three” you’re out of here!

    Forgot to mention Fred, I put your video up at Obama Cartoons. With link!

    Another episode of epic fail obama. Loved that youtube!

    Yes, correct, Obama will never stop. He has to make this succeed at any cost. Because this is only the FIRST hurdle of his Massive Socialist Goal.

    IF he can get ObamaKare rammed through, then CapNTrade is next. Once that’s in place he’ll grant amnesty to illegals in order to further shore up his vote arena. Following that he’ll go after guns, and then begin to — essentially — attempt to remove as much privatization as possible.

    EVERYthing hinges, as far as he’s concerned, on ObamaKare. If this fails to pass he KNOWS that his ship is completely DEAD in the water.

    This is, as I’ve said many times, for ALL THE MARBLES.

    Right here. Right now.

    Barack Obama is on the campaign trail once again for healthcare reform, the man who complained during the SOTU that congress was in perpetual campaign mode is once again campaigning. He will stop at nothing to pass this bill. His ego will not allow him to admit defeat and let this go.

    He’s an arrogant POS. Everything he does makes me want to puke. Lying sack of sh#t!!!

    Great YouTube. I do think his continual arrogance and the “audacity to ignore the citizens of this country” will be his down fall.

    As A military vet, I agree 100% with HoosierArmyMom! She said everything in a few words. Would have made a great drill Sgt.

    Fred is right. We will be battling nationalized healthcare as long as Obama is president. The libs have already moved the discussion to the left, even if we don’t accept Obamacare in it’s present form.

    The video was good to see again.

    Obama appeals for support ?
    Why don’t he ask LeBron James for his, right after a tough basketball game? Wouldn’t even need to wash it. He could use it as a hat and feel right at home.

    Thanks guru, I consider that a compliment and both my sons would agree! LOL!!! They don’t like being around Mom when she gets her dander up! And Obozo has permanently kept me in that state since he started running for POTUS!
