Posted on 03/03/2010 10:27:54 AM PST by cajuncow
WASHINGTON (Associated Press) -- Declaring the nation is "waiting for us to act" after a year of debate, President Barack Obama urged Congress Wednesday to enact his signature health care legislation swiftly. He said it now contains the best ideas from both political parties.
"This is where we've ended up. It's an approach that has been debated and changed and I believe improved over the last year," Obama said in excerpts released in advance of an early afternoon appearance at the White House.

What a liar Obama is.
ignoring the fact that a great majority of Americans don’t want the best health care system in the world ruined, which is what these goons are doing.
The American people Want To Be Left Alone...
He is absolutely correct. The American people want this bill killed and start over. Of course health care needs to be fixed but not controlled by the government or dictated as to what you can or can’t do.
LIAR!!!! Obama is trash!
The American People want you to STFU and GO HOME!
He’s right. The American people want congress to kill this stinkin’ bill once and for all.
Two very different words.
The only act we want to see is the scrapping of the current approach and starting over with an open, step-at-a-time method, starting with targeting waste fraud and abuse.
Obama needs to be impeached and tried for treason.
This guy is extremely dangerous & evil. To hang any other term on him, i.e. dense, doesn’t get it, clueless etc., are severely underestimating the enemy.
This on msnbc
Coming up: President Barack Obama unveils latest health care proposal at 1:45 p.m. ET
And so is every senator and representative who votes for this against the people's will.
Actually, he is right. The Americans do want them to act. They want them to eff off.
I maintain that our health care is excellent and that health insurance is what needs to be reformed.
“waiting for us to act”.Yes act like a sane person.
...shaking head, “not true”
NO WE ****ING DON’T, YOU STUPID, LYING BASTARD!
My blood pressure keeps going skyward every time I see or hear from this boy king. This is stunning. It took my breath away when I first heard it.
How dare he. How dare THEY!
I didn’t realize the president could write bills,
is this a new thing? /S
And we haven’t seen anything yet. Trying to force an up and down vote today...we are witnessing the shredding of our Constitution and Liberty. Other headlines......land grab by feds going on as well.
Dilusional narcissist! What the American people want is for YOU OBAMA to go AWAY!
God knows it wasn't Massachusetts!
Fox News just gave 2 minute warning for Obama to talk about health care.
Absolutely true. Insurance companies need to get on board with the people of this country. Are the insurance companies trying to break the backs of the American people? If so, why? Americans work for these companies and they should also be standing for the reform of insurance costs. The question needs to be asked....”How much do insurance companies make on the insurance and how much do they spend taking care of the people they insure?” Insurance is not like a grocery store or auto dealer. Insurance is something that we all need and the companies need to be controlled somehow. That’s what needs to be discussed.
He's failed at everything else - so he's desperate to have SOMETHING to show as an accomplishment during his presidency.
He is Beastly..
I still sit here shaking my head, wondering how this assclown ended up in the White House. This country is facing a major trial.
Good lord the white coats again!
Something doesn't compute here,boys and girls.
Umm, no.....the American people...75+ % of them want you to START OVER....idiot!
The President is a covert traitor....at least he thinks he’s covert, but an increasing number of American are catching on.
IN HIS DREAMS!
Hell yeah, we want something done — kill socialized medicine. And outlaw communism in this country. Track down the commies with hounds.
IN HIS DREAMS!
If his lips are flapping he’s a lying!

TRI CARE FOR LIFE This from a google search:
This option would help reduce the costs of TFL, as well as costs for Medicare, by introducing minimum out-of pocket requirements for beneficiaries. Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollees cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.) http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/99xx/doc9925/12-18-HealthOptions.pdf

Congress plans to block Tricare fee increases
By Rick Maze - Staff writer, Oct 7, 2009
Tricare fee increases imposed last week by the Defense Department will be repealed by a provision of the compromise 2010 defense authorization bill unveiled Wednesday by House and Senate negotiators.
Snip The fee increases were announced on Sept. 30 and took effect on Oct. 1, but the defense bill, HR 2647, includes a provision barring any fee increases until the start of fiscal 2011.
Retired Army Maj. Gen. Bill Matz, president of the National Association for Uniformed Services, said the announcement of fee increases was shocking considering that the Obama administration promised earlier this year to hold off on any new fee Tricare fee increases until fiscal 2011.
President Obama and DoD assured NAUS and the entire military family earlier this year that there would rightly be no increases in any Tricare fees in fiscal 2010, Matz said. We took them at their word, and I cant believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward, he added.
The world according to the Party Chairman Obama.
Forget what we have been saying right along, what every major poll shows. It is a apparently all in some alternate reality for him.
