The August recess is upon us, and Obama’s Health Care “reform” vision is foundering. What to do? In the words of Obama “people should not believe all this stuff they hear.” (link)
Why go back to basics, of course!
1) Declare that all opposition efforts are part of a well coordinated vast right wing consipracy, and that they do not reflect every day people’s opinions
”This is manufactured anger,” he said.
Mr. Gibbs implied that the Republican Party is using operatives to make it appear as if members of the administration and of Congress are encountering genuine outrage and anger over the president’s proposed health care reforms.
2) Use the power of BIG BROTHER to encourage people to “report” on misinformation on emails, websites, blogs, and CASUAL CONVERSATIONS. The White House blog today posted a message entitled “Facts are Stubborn Things” – here is the disturbing part:
There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to email@example.com.
It looks like the Obama team’s message is to get people focused around “keeping your doctor,’ without realizing that you will be giving up control of what services your doctor may perform for you, and what kid of choices you may have in the future. The goal is for a single payer system, which by definition will operate as a government bureaucracy once the private payers get squeezed out.
The best part of the video clip on the Organizing for Healthcare site is when communications director Linda Douglass refers to a Drudge report link as “nothing that could be further from the truth”.
That link is from HERE which is a link to THIS CLIP OF OBAMA in HIS OWN WORDS
|“I don’t think we’re going to be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately. There’s going to be potentially some transition process…”
I happen to be a proponent of a single payer plan…thats what I’d like to see
I hope you like your healthcare with the same level of service and caring tha you get at the Department of Motor Vehicles, US Post Office, Unemployment Office, etc, etc, etc.
This administration is demonstrating why a strong centralized government is to be FEARED
