Shift: Obama Will Make 'Emotional and Moral Appeal' for Health Bill (Sob Stories Coming)
The Fox Nation ^ | 08/19/09

Posted on 08/19/2009 12:41:43 PM PDT by Recovering_Democrat

President Barack Obama, trying to regain control of the health-care debate, will likely shift his pitch in September, White House and Democratic officials said, as he faces pressure from supporters to talk more about the moral imperative to provide health insurance to all Americans.

The rethinking comes amid a struggle by the White House to clarify its view on a public insurance plan, which liberals see as a critical part of a health overhaul.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Sunday that a public plan isn't the "essential element" of a health bill, prompting sharp words from liberal groups.

When democRats start showing me receipts
for the health insurance that they’ve
bought for a stranger, we’ll start
taking them seriously in their appeal to
our good nature.

Otherwise, we understand that they don’t
really give a damn about anything other
than controlling people.

Zero’s going to launch a new offensive in September, after the townhalls are over and when us ‘mobsters’ no longer have public forums to refute his idiocy. It won’t work.

One thing I try to remember about any waffling healthcare sweet talk from the obamanation socialist/commie regime.

the federal Government DOES NOT work in “partnership” with anyone. All this talk about “co-ops” is plan old dung. it is a way to get the camel’s nose into the tent.

We know it's about control.
But DEMOCRATS NATIONAL SOCIALISTS can't handle the truth about health care.
So let's beat them to death with their own bill!!!

And just in case they forget who's fault it is ... that it's broken ...

Okay, then the DEMOCRATS need to shut up!!!

Lets review:

So Democrats,

Well, I had a hang nail once that refused to heal, and the medical establishment and the insurance industry could care less. We need the Federal government to step in and make sure that this never again happens to anyone else in America.

Does this apply?

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers,
transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel;
for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Therefore it is no great thing
if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works.

Exactly!
Stealing is immoral!
When you ‘capture’ value in an economy it’s the same thing as looting! (Wall Street, Banksters, Government, etc...)
We should focus on ‘value creation’. Exchanging ‘value for value’ creates wealth! The process enriches all sides exponentially!
For those who cannot afford it, there is charity! (We should all be involved in charity. Forced charity is stealing, not a virtue!)
Only a ‘Progressive’ would take a ‘virtue’ and turn it into a ‘Right’.

Page-by-Page Reasons to Hate Obama-Care

Here are just a few very good reasons to hate Obamacare, from the Canada Free Press:

A tip of my hat to my friend, Ben Cerruti, for providing this look at the Obamanation called Obamacare.
Write, email, fax or call your Senators and your Representative and tell them to vote NO!

You make a point many deliberately forget or ignore. Christ’s call to help is a call to individuals to do so. There is no place saved for me in Heaven because I voted to take someone else’s money to do good.

Capitol Hill is a country club for sociopaths. Democrats AND Republicans.

They don’t care if it’s immoral.

They’re laughing at the American people.

I got into an argument w/another Christian who threw the Good Samaritan parable in my face. They were trying to convince me we were REQUIRED to have a welfare state because of that Scripture.

What he didn't realize was that when one looks at the CONTEXT of the passage, Jesus wasn't at all endorsing a civil state where wealth is distributed by the government.

Amazing what one can learn when one treats the Bible with respect, instead of cramming our pre-determined views into its pages. :)

This will haunt them big time in 2010 and 2012 when GOP points out these facts about Obamacare that will have become true by 2010 or 2012

* working class, middle class Americans are paying higher taxes
* working class, middle class Americans are paying higher premimum for insurance
* millions of additional illegal immigrants and welfare people will be getting free health care

Exactly. The substance of this bill is not being debated. It’s all irrational attacks. The kind of stuff Democrats like.

Hang together, folks. Or hang seperately. The Democrats are lacking in scruples.

There is no right to food, shelter, or health care beyond what you can provide for yourself and your family. In fact there is no “right” for you or me to levy against another individual for any personal needs.

There is also no provision on the Constitution for the Federal Government to provide these to residents in these United States.

These are the only valid moral arguments.

And emotional arguments be damned. If you want to provide for the “less fortunate” its called “charity.” And you do it with your own money and your own time. Americans are very charitable; if we had more of our own money, we’d be even more so.
