watch it: the 8/15/09 weekly address from President Barack Obama


All Obama has to say is: “No one goes bankrupt in Canada, England, or France because they get sick. Why do we let that happen here?” Or: “Sure, America has the finest health care in the world… if you can pay for it. Most of us can’t.” Or: “Any member of the Senate or House — Republican or Democrat — who opposes ‘government-run health insurance’ should immediately remove him- or herself from the government-run health-insurance program he or she currently enjoys, or be prepared to explain the hypocrisy.”

It’s not that hard.

    I’d love to ask him, if the reforms are apparently so great then why have the members of Congress exempted themselves from having to fall under it as well?

    This whole reform deal has just become so much rhetoric (from ALL sides), I say they scrap it all and start over from scratch.

    Pollas, EVERYBODY is exempted from having to fall under it. The reform plan Obama supports is one that would add another option. It does not force anyone to take that option.

    MaryAnn, you kinda remind me of an online blogger called Bartcop, in that he puts it so simply (or, more accurately, succinctly):

    If the Democrats would just tell the damn truth and list the facts in plain-as-they-can English, they would have won pretty much every “debate” in the last six years.
