President Obama and Healthcare Tour2010 March 16, 2010

Last week in St. Louis the President finally had an answer for the Republican request to “just start over with a new health care bill”. He asserted,” Why should we-they had ten years!”

What bothers me is how the print and radio media have ignored this, and the other lies being told on the “other side of the aisle’. Or should I say hypocrisy?

Reconciliation is now the “R word”, despite it being a time-honored tool of the Grand Old Party.

“Deeming” a bill to be passed is now unconstitutional, despite use by both previous Houses controlled by Republicans and other Democrats in past years.

In whose interest is it to have health care for more people? If health insurance stock prices go up after a day in Congress, whose interest is being served?

Frequent Flyer has been depressed about the lack of forward motion on the bill so has been gone for 65 days. I hope that the rest of this week brings cooler heads, warm hearts and the realization that this bill is about moving forward to cover more people in this country.
