Skip to comments.Obama Targets GOP in Last-Ditch Pitch for Health Care Bill
Posted on 03/08/2010 11:51:48 AM PST by antidemoncrat
President Obama, launching a last-ditch push to pass health care legislation in the next 10 days, left no doubt Monday that he was ready to roll over any opposition by taunting Republicans that they had 10 years to fix health care and didn't

Hilarious that Jack Squat can talk mad crap about how the Repubs are this and that concerning his ObamaCare and yet, then ask for their help....NPD-ridden idiot.
The bill is a bad one. Since the Feds are unable to even protect our borders and deport illegal aliens, I certainly do not trust them with something as complex as our health care system.
Hey, 0bama, most Americans are very happy with their healthcare, which happens to be the best on the planet.
Keep the pressure up with faxes and calls especially to house members.
JackASS forgets the his own party has a majority in the House. This is so easy to throw back in his face.
What an arrogant, offensive SOB. There was nothing essentially “wrong” with health care that couldn’t have been handled with some adjustments to the existing way of doing business. But that’s precisely what Bambi doesn’t want, because it wouldn’t hand over absolute power to him.
Which Reps in particular, please?
To hear all those cheering people at these rallies, I am hard pressed to believe these things are not staged with SEIU members who are bussed in. That they can set up one of these town hall meetings on short notice and get only true believers strains credulity.
They didn't have to. When the GOP was in power, people had jobs and assoicated health benefits.
A naked Rahm Emmanuel can verbally assault as many members of Congress in the Congressional gym shower room as he wants, but it won’t change that fact that the public is overwhelmingly opposed to this bill.
I love my health care.
God bless the Republicans for their stand.
They are staged events.
The public is locked out of his speech tomorrow according to Rush Limbaugh.
Health-care shares drop on Obama speech
Nice way for him to “reach out” and be bipartisan. Trashing the other side, as always. Then we hear dolts like Rather say he is a “very nice person.” BS. He always struck me as snide.
Have a barf bag before reading Garrison Keillor’s latest column. He refers to 0 as a very kind and gracious man who looks better and better because his opponents are such crude louts. Kind and gracious leaders do not insult and bash their opposition and then say I am reaching across the aisle. What a joke this whole presidency is.
You got it...all union members who support Øbama!
All the jerk knows how to do is campaign...
Barack Obama got downright fiery today, in a speech on health care at Arcadia University in Pennsylvania, lambasting insurance companies for their ever-higher premiums. They will keep doing this for as long as they can get away with it, he said. How many more Americans have to lose their health insurance? . When is the right time for health insurance reform?
He also blasted Republicans for playing politics on the issue. Ill be honest with you, he said, voice rising to a fever pitch, I dont know how passing health care will play politically, but I do know its the right thing to do! Its right for our families, its right for our businesses, its right for the United States of America, and if you share that belief, I want you to stand with me and fight!
truly remarkable to watch him cracking-up at the thought that he just might not get what he wants
In his speech, Obama also revived his criticism of Washington political culture, something he promised during his 2008 campaign to change with more bipartisan outreach. He said much of Washington is obsessed with “the sport of politics,” and he argued that the short-term focus on elections is hindering his effort to bring about long-term reforms in fields such as health care.
The public is “not worried about the next election. We just had an election,” he said to cheers. “They’re worried about the next pay check or the next tuition payment that’s due. They’re thinking about retirement.”
The list, ping
