Goal was always no health care reform? why?

a private conference call, a group of top Tea Party and conservative organizers offered a surprisingly frank description of their goal, according to a source on the call: Completely blocking any kind of bipartisan compromise, and completely preventing any type of health care reform bill at all from ever becoming law.

The source who got himself on the call was an organizer for the AFL-CIO, and AFL-CIO spokesman Eddie Vale provided me with the organizer’s notes. It’s certain to be seized on by Dems to argue that organized Tea Party opposition to Obama has no constructive intentions and is fomenting public “concern” about Obama’s plan solely to prevent any reform from ever taking place. GOP officials would argue
The call consisted of representatives of top conservative groups, such as the American Liberty Alliance, the “Tea Party Patriots,” and RecessRally.com, the AFL-CIO’s notes say.

    You would put it past the INSURANCE companies but not the government itself? You are misinformed to say the least.

  • That sounds like bunk to me. Anyone who is familiar with the Tea Party movement knows what they and the groups members want to acomplish. Health reform was not what started the Tea Party movement. It is the taking over of the government, the taking away of our freedoms and ignorance of the constitution. Stealng our money and mortgaging our childrens future. Health reform is just what is going on at the moment. Many do agree that some health reform is needed but not the taking over of teh system by the government.
    The Tea Party Express will be heading out soon to get their messages out across teh country and if they come to a city near you, you should definately attend a ralley,

  • Do you think you will be reported to flag@whitehouse.gov for spreading disinformation? Aren't you worried you will be put in the government's data bank which it is illegal for them to have but it is illegal for them to dump. They violate the Privacy Act by asking for the information and then will violate the act governing the government destroying documentation and changing history. You go and have fun with your fellow conspiracy theorists!
