Contradictions?

Obama says that he will cut health-care spending . . . by adding $1 trillion to health-care spending.
He says that “health-care decisions will not be made by government” . . . while he sets up a new Federal Health Board to tell doctors what treatments they can offer and to whom and under what circumstances.
Obama told the media, “I will free doctors to make good health-care decisions” . . . by telling the physicians what to do.
The president will “get the politics out of health care” by putting it under government control.
He repeatedly tells us that he’ll cut health-care spending. What he means is that he will cut doctors’ incomes and will turn down patients — particularly the elderly — when they seek medical care that his bureaucrats disapprove of.

  • Pure speculation completely unsupported.

    actually if you did some research on the health care bill you would no that her comments are supported. get your head out of the sand and read the bill for your self.

  • Geithner said today on ABC's This Week that they must implement healthcare reform to save the American economy. He also said the administration isn't ruling out taxes on the middle class to make it happen. In fact, he stated that they will do what they have to do.

    I can't put a link. I can't cut & paste on this computer. You can find transcripts by googling Stephanopolous abc this week transcripts.

  • Ya know not saying we should not have some reform but this is more scare tactics like they did with the stimulus that tripled our damn debt...All to get their agenda through is all.There could be reform without another government controlled crap mess.

    _____________________________
    I did not ready any of the (many) bills but I followed links that supposedly supported a bunch of scary things in the main Democrat supported bill. NONE of the things people were saying stood up to scrutiny. Also, they still haven't come up with a final bill. So, maybe you should carry your research a little further than WND and Rush.

  • Stacymomof2~
    How can you follow links of people "dissing" the bill and say its scrutiny if you don't even know whats in that chop shop bill???
    Yes the bill isn't finished and it is annoying to read. the a*holes refer you to sections of other bills and acts which is a pain and annoying. You keep saying you haven't read the bill but read blogger interpretations of it (both sides of the fence) and call them liars and over reactors on one side and cheer on the other. READ THE BILL!!!!!! stop answering to these questions with your blogger knowledge and actually read the bill!
