Obama Town Hall: Frustration!
8/11/2009 1:52:00 PM - Meredith Jessup
A questioner at Obama's town hall meeting on health care today asked the president: Do you still support a single-payer health care system?
Obama's response: Technically, I'm not for a single-payer system.Technically
, Mr. President, you're LYING. How many videos do we have of Obama saying the exact opposite? His charade is so blatantly absurd, it's beyond
a flip-flop. In his own words:
“I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America...cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that’s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that’s what I’d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.”
It doesn't get much clearer than that. We've all seen the videos, heard the speeches. Good God, even Hillary called him out on it during the campaign. How long until this guy is held accountable?
