“This isn’t about me.” President Obama responding to Jim DeMint of South Carolina saying that a defeat on the President’s health care reform bill would be his ‘Waterloo.’ That’s all the Republicans are about on this, how it would bring down the President.
The President answered his critics on this on Friday with where the bill stands, what it will do and how it will be paid for, but those remarks didn’t make it in the news cycles.
He pushed back further in a press conference today– “These opponents of reform would rather score political points than offer relief to Americans who’ve seen premiums double and costs grow three times faster than wages…They would maintain a system that works for the insurance and the drug companies, while becoming increasingly unaffordable for families and for businesses.” Obama told reporters.
Once again Republicans have money for the rich. Not to mention all of their wars, scandals, pay-offs, favors, and political follies, but when it comes to help comes to
helping the middle and lower classes, they call it socialism. They will do anything to keep the insurance, drug companies and corporate medicine flush. There should be no profit in medicine. Once again Republicans prove how small they really are.
Once again the issue is not the issue it’s the fight about the issue and the American people loose every time.
