Obama Hands Out White Coats to Fake Doctors

…And then proceeds to talk to them like they were real doctors.

“Nobody has more credibility with the American people on this issue [Health Care Reform] than you do,” Obama told his guests.

Ugh.  They wish they had that much credibility.

In order to sell his Health Care Reform, Obama invited fake physicians to the White House with one request: Wear your white lab coat.

Some of the fake doctors must have thought he was joking as many of them ‘forgot’ to bring their lab coats with them.  Don’t worry though, the White House is full of empty, white coats.  From the New York Post:

President Obama yesterday rolled out the red carpet — and handed out doctors’ white coats as well, just so nobody missed his hard-sell health-care message.

In a heavy-handed attempt at reviving support for health-care reform, the White House orchestrated a massive photo op to buttress its claim that front-line physicians support Obama.

How on earth did the President get grown, adult, American citizens to go along with this scheme?  It blows my mind people are willingly going along with this propaganda.

Hot Air brings up a good point: Why was the New York Post the only main-stream media outlet to have posted this story?

Clearly, creating a false atmosphere of support – while covering this up from the American people – reveals that this health care legislation isn’t as good as the Left are making it out to be.  Conservative members, such as Sarah Palin, aren’t afraid to voice the truth regarding the Left’s Health Care Reform.  Additionally, some elected members from the GOP stood up to this propaganda:

The Republican National Committee shot back with a response from Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), who was an orthopedic surgeon before being elected to Congress.

“Today, the president wants you to believe that the medical community supports his government takeover of health care. Don’t be fooled,” Price said.

He said he had spoken to “thousands of my colleagues” who oppose the Democrats’ legislation.

I guess it is October.  Maybe some of those physicians can use those white coats on Halloween 😉

Obama Happy to be a One-Term Wonder?

Have you ever seen a politician happy to only hold one term in office?

Isn’t the goal to represent the people well enough that they want to re-elect you?

So, what could possibly be the motive behind this statement?

US President Barack Obama would be fine with serving only one term if he achieved some of his most audacious goals, like his embattled health care overhaul, spokesman Robert Gibbs said.

First of all, I’m glad they are admitting these are his plans…and not what American’s want.

But, here is what Obama is saying to me: Regardless if the people want my plans or not, I’m going to pass them anyway.  Why?  Because I know what’s best for the United States, not you.

Liberals are really convincing me they really do think the Government can do things better than the people!

Don’t believe me?  Read on:

The way he approaches this issue [health care], the economy, Afghanistan, Iraq, any of these issues is not in a mode of self-preservation, said Gibbs.

Obama says he wants to take decisions “he thinks are in the best interests of the American people, not what’s in the best interest of his personal polling numbers”, said the spokesman.

We Americans don’t know what we want; we need Obama to tell us what we want.  And, those silly polls that meant so much to liberals during the Bush era – that say we don’t want BHO’s audacious goals – well, those just mean we really do want them, we just don’t know it yet.

If his plans were really in the best interests of the people, we would reward him and re-elect him to office.  The fact that he feels as though implementing his goals will cause him to sacrifice his popularity clearly states they aren’t popular programs.

This just doesn’t sound like the Obama people voted into Office…

Controversy over Life Expectancy

A study by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has found that life expectancy has hit a an all time high in the US of 78 years.

With all the swirl surrounding our ‘broken’ Health Care system, officials appear to be guarding their words to as not to praise this too much.

“It is difficult to say for sure why this trend continues,” said report author Robert N. Anderson, chief of the Mortality Statistics Branch, at CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics. “We are making improvements in medical care and prevention. There are lots of factors that could be in play,” he noted.

Dr. David L. Katz, director of the Prevention Research Center at Yale University School of Medicine, chimes in:

“I suspect we may be living longer not because of improvements in health, but thanks to the ability of high-tech, high-cost medicine to forestall death despite a growing burden of chronic disease,” he said. “That means we may be adding years to life while reducing the life and vitality in those years, a very dubious bargain.”

Dr. Katz sounds very similar to Obama when he spoke to Jane Sturm.  Why have surgery and prolong life when you can just take a pill?

But, it gets even better.  The media just can’t sit idly by when this positive of news gets out – even if some have already made the attempt to ruin the good news.  To make sure we Americans aren’t too happy about the increase in life expectancy, yet another article was released today titled, “The Truth About Record-Setting Life Expectancy.”

Life expectancy in the United States rose to an all-time high, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said today. But that’s only half the story.

The country is behind about 30 others on this measure.  Though the United States has by far the highest level of health care spending per capita in the world, we have one of the lowest life expectancies among developed nations – lower than Italy, Spain and Cuba and just a smidgeon ahead of Chile, Costa Rica and Slovenia, according to the United Nations.

If we are so behind everyone else, how come people come to the US for care?

Have you ever heard of a US citizen going to Canada, the UK – yay, Cuba – to receive Health Care?

Oh, those doggone Cubans.  They’re always just one step ahead of the game.  Why can’t we just be like them? 😉

White House Supports Public Option, or Not?

It seems as though the final Health Care decision may come down to picking pedals off a flower…

“I don’t support Universal Health Care…I do support Universal Health Care…I don’t support Universal Health Care.”

Kathleen Sebelius, the Health and Human Services Secretary, has now reaffirmed the White House’s support for socialized medicine, seemingly contradicting earlier comments that it wasn’t the focus of reform.  Here are her latest comments:

Absolutely nothing has changed. We continue to support the public option that will help lower costs, give American consumers more choice and keep private insurers honest.

If people have other ideas about how to accomplish these goals, we’ll look at those too,” she said. “But the public option is a very good way to do this.

That sounds like the plan that has upset millions of Americans.  Contrast those remarks with ones made just a few days earlier on CNN’s State of the Union:

A public insurance option was not the essential element of any overhaul, and non-profit cooperatives being considered by a Senate panel could also fulfill the White House goal of creating more competition on insurance.

And I think what’s important is choice and competition. And I’m convinced at the end of the day, the plan will have both of those. But that [the public option] is not the essential element.

After all that’s happened, it looks like we’re back to where we started.

Too bad they’ve ended the flag@whitehouse.gov program for fear-mongering.  This sounds an awful lot like fishy disinformation! 😉

Democrats Quarrelling Over Health Care Plan?

We all know the goal of the Democrat party is socialized medicine.

Imagine the shock to their systems when their liberal leader comes out saying the government-run option might have to be dropped:

Obama’s spokesman refused to say a public option was a make-or-break choice.

“What I am saying is the bottom line for this for the president is, what we have to have is choice and competition in the insurance market,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Sunday.

A day before, Obama appeared to hedge his bets.

“All I’m saying is, though, that the public option, whether we have it or we don’t have it, is not the entirety of health care reform,” Obama said at a town hall meeting in Grand Junction, Colo. “This is just one sliver of it, one aspect of it.”

Are they beginning to cave in from the opposition?  Are they really hearing the voice of the American people?  I don’t know if we can answer those questions just yet.

Former Democratic Party Leader Howard Dean decided to make his voice known, declaring his support of a single-payer system:

Dean, a physician, argued that a public option is fair and said there must be such a choice in any genuine shake up of the existing system.

“You can’t really do health reform without it,” he said.

He called a direct government role the “entirety of health care reform”

For those that are undecided about health care, think about this: What government programs are run successfully?  The newly released ‘Cash for Clunkers’ program is only $3 billion and is running into problems!  If they can’t run the Post Office, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Medicare, Social Security – why would we want to give them control of our Health Care?

There is some reform needed.  And, the best people to make that reform are the ones using the system: The American people.

Whole Foods CEO Writes about Health Care

Organic food really does taste better.

It looks better, too.

In a recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, Whole Foods CEO John Mackey informed both readers and shoppers what he thought about Obama’s Health Care plan:

While we clearly need health-care reform, the last thing our country needs is a massive new health-care entitlement that will create hundreds of billions of dollars of new unfunded deficits and move us much closer to a government takeover of our health-care system.

Instead, we should be trying to achieve reforms by moving in the opposite direction—toward less government control and more individual empowerment.

Surely, he had to know this would anger the liberals who frequent Whole Foods.  And, sure enough, ABC News was quick to pick up on the criticism, quoting several liberal-minded individuals who would now boycott Whole Foods because, “Everyone needs Health Care.”

Countless Whole Foods shoppers have taken their gripes with Mackey’s op-ed to the Internet, where people on the social networking sites Twitter and Facebook are calling for a boycott of the store.

A commenter on the Whole Foods forum, identified only by his handle, “PracticePreach,” wrote, “It is an absolute slap in the face to the millions of progressive-minded consumers that have made [Whole Foods] what it is today.”

Did they read the full article?  Mackey was not opposed to Health Care reform; he was just making the case for reform that didn’t bankrupt the country.  This is the same viewpoint that millions of Americans have: Yes, reform Health Care, but, not at the expense of huge federal deficits and over-reaching government control.

It’s what all conservatives are saying – and, it’s not un-American.  It appears that Democrats are finally beginning to see the error of the Health Care overhaul as well.

Yeah, it may be more expensive, but I think I’ll stop by Whole Foods to shop this week 😉

Hurry! CNN May Remove This Article!

I didn’t want to post about Health Care again, but I couldn’t not post this article since it came from the liberals themselves: CNN!

Shawn Tully’s ‘5 Freedoms You’d Lose in Health Care reform‘ is a must read.

A close reading of the two main bills, one backed by Democrats in the House and the other issued by Sen. Edward Kennedy’s Health committee, contradict the President’s assurances. To be sure, it isn’t easy to comb through their 2,000 pages of tortured legal language. But page by page, the bills reveal a web of restrictions, fines, and mandates that would radically change your health-care coverage.

Can you believe this is coming from CNN?!?

Maybe someone should flag them 🙂
