Who plays the race card?

Senate Republicans are mailing out a "survey" insinuating that the president's health care reform agenda includes the creation of a lottery system to determine who gets medical treatment and a quota system that based on race and age.

Written under the vague and non-partisan title of "U.S. Senate Health Care Task Force," the mailing, which includes a fundraising letter, was commissioned by the National Republican Senatorial Committee and passed to the Huffington Post by a Democratic source. It asks recipients to respond to several misleading questions
Are you concerned that health care rationing could lead to:

23. Denial of treatment in cases where the patient's prospects are deemed not good?
24. A "lottery" system of determining who will get priority treatment?
25. A "quota" system which would determine who would determine who would get treatment on the basis of race or age?

  • I think that many people are concerned about health care reform and that BIG money has put a lot of time and effort into scaring people. What we need are comprehensive plans to review and look at for ourselves and not to rely on others to scare us.

    Barack has never played the race card. In fact he has gone out of his way to avoid it

     Cambridge Police? Michelle Obama has wasted no time playing the race card. Everywhere else, he doesn't have to. His minions come on sites like cafemom and oversaturated the day with make believe racial questions so that people are so fed up with hearing the race word they just want it all to shut up. Is that what you wanted? To have people numb to the word racist because democrats cried wolf too many times?

  • Cambridge Police?


    He didn't play the race card. he said the officer acted stupidly and he DID. That's why ALL CHARGES WERE DROPPED before the POTUS ever commented. There was NOTHING done to warrant an arrest. Just a cop being an axx. Then he had both parties to the White House to smooth things over..Where did he mention race?
