President Barack Obama is trying to achieve a health care overhaul the way he once said it couldn't, and shouldn't, be done.
He now wants congressional Democrats to move ahead without Republican support and pass the legislation with a bare majority in the Senate instead of the broader majority he favored as a presidential candidate.
Obama in '07--"You can't deliver on health care. We're not going to pass universal health care with a 50-plus-one strategy. We're not going to have a serious bold energy policy of the sort that I proposed yesterday unless you build a working majority."
Another Obama lie? He can't even get his own party to fully support this bill, so he has changed his stance and is willing to buy votes and shove it down America's throat. Is this the kind of change you want?

Conveniently changing your mind when it suits one's own agenda is always hypocritical...

Funny, Obama thought it was a terrible idea when he was in Congress, and when he was running for president, but once he was in power...... Just like the Patriot Act....... Hmmmmm......
