Tough talk?


Let me go ahead and give my thoughts about the O man's health insurance reform speech.

I caught most of it tonight in between watching the U.S.A T&T soccer match on the Spanish channel.

First, how ignorant and disrespectful are republicans? If anyone saw a democratic congressman texting during one of the frat boy's speeches or saw anyone in the opposition yelling "liar" in the middle of a previous presidential address, please provide a link. I don't think one will be forthcoming, but I could be wrong. I did see Eric Cantor texting someone during the O man's speech-must have been calling his hair dresser for more hair spray-, and yep, there was a republican yelling "liar" in the middle of the speech. What a classy bunch.

Oh, and I loved the good doctor from Louisiana giving the republican response. (He has been sued for malpractice twice, so I am not sure he should be throwing any stones from his glass house.) The idiot actually brought up tort reform when his O ness already promised in his speech that it would be a part of his plan. That's what you get for writing your response before hand. But hey, it sure beats the governor from Louisiana giving the response, because as bad as bayou doc was he was better than the gov.

But back to the speech: First, let me say that it was a mistake for his O ness to give this health reform package to congress to work on. He should have crafted it himself and then handed to them to work out the details. I know he didn't want to do a repeat of what the Clintons did back in 1994, but that is exactly what he should have done. Different time, different mandate, and it would have worked. Now, unfortunately, our boy is playing defense. Having said that, let me holla at his O ness for a minute: I loved the tough talk O man. You aren't the first president to take up health care but you will be the last? Bringing up the ghost of John Dingell, Sr. was also a nice touch. You were all over the profit over people insurance companies, and rightfully so. If A-merry-cans weren't moved by some of those stories you told about real people, they don't deserve health insurance reform.

I loved the fact that you hit back at the right wing/FOX News smear machine. ( I see they bumped your speech for some dancing show. Just what A-merry-ca needs, more silly reality shows.) Who needs to hear about one of the most important legislation from our government in decades? I am still not sure about the public option part, but I think you were being intentionally fuzzy. I felt like you were talking to us progressives and telling us to chill while you try to get something done with health care. I am not a political pragmatist, but I know you are, and if most A-merry-cans can have access to proper and affordable health care I guess I am all for it. It sure as hell beats the insurance lobby driven system we have now.

I also loved the fact that you placed the blame for this mess that we are in where it belongs: at the foot of the frat boy and his crew. And, I loved the idea of putting actual facts into the speech. Facts should always get in the way of partisan bullshit.

"We are the only advanced democracy on Earth — the only wealthy nation — that allows such hardships for millions of its people. There are now more than 30 million American citizens who cannot get coverage. In just a two year period, one in every three Americans goes without health care coverage at some point. And every day, 14,000 Americans lose their coverage. In other words, it can happen to anyone. "


Not "anyone" O man, republicans don't believe it can happen to them. Only poor people immigrants and minorities can't afford health care.


"Then there's the problem of rising costs. We spend one-and-a-half times more per person on health care than any other country, but we aren't any healthier for it. This is one of the reasons that insurance premiums have gone up three times faster than wages. It's why so many employers — especially small businesses — are forcing their employees to pay more for insurance, or are dropping their coverage entirely. It's why so many aspiring entrepreneurs cannot afford to open a business in the first place, and why American businesses that compete internationally — like our automakers — are at a huge disadvantage. And it's why those of us with health insurance are also paying a hidden and growing tax for those without it — about $1000 per year that pays for somebody else's emergency room and charitable care."


More facts. Come on O man, you are letting it get in the way of a great political debate.


"But that's not what the moment calls for. That's not what we came here to do. We did not come to fear the future. We came here to shape it. I still believe we can act even when it's hard. I still believe we can replace acrimony with civility, and gridlock with progress. I still believe we can do great things, and that here and now we will meet history's test.
Because that is who we are. That is our calling. That is our character. Thank you, God bless you, and may God bless the United States of America.'


That damn Obama, I wonder if Mrs. Field have any of her O-Aid left?

FUCK YEAH! That's what I voted for.

Of course it had to be a pogue from my state to say that bullshit.

Anonymous said...

Oh, how that warmed the cockles o' me heart! To hear a citizen confront the lies of another citizen, boldly, and without regard to some false decorum of "place and time."

If Obama is addressing the people and their representatives, then the people should be able to respond. It's the proper way to run a republic and a democracy.

To see Pelosi and Biden act as though someone dared question their messiah, was priceless.

Sharon from WI said...

God bless President Obama.

Ernesto said...

Some ign'nant good ole boy had to get up and loudly insult the President of the United States in front of the world. That was a perfect touch, it portrays the wingnuts for exactly what they are: nutty and impetulant. That fool did more damage to his cause than he'll ever know. Good for him!

BTW...here's his contact info if you want to tell him what a good job he did:

Swiff, I thought the same thing, that is why I voted for him. That was powerful, tough, on point and I LOVED that he called out the lying liars and the lies they told and put them on notice he will be calling them out. I loved it! And, it was heart felt. At the end, he had me and just about everyone around him in tears.... this is what we need and I thank god he is my president.

Gregory said...

Anony,
You very clearly have no clue as to how the Congress works or the customs of the body.

Your boy, Joe Wilson, is equally uninformed. From Politico:

"There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false - the reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally," President Obama said.

A loud voice from the Republican side of the hall answered, "Lie" -- my colleague Glenn Thrush reports it was Rep. Joe Wilson (R - S.C.) -- drawing a second "It's not true," from Obama and a shake of Nancy Pelosi's head.

The bill is designed to exclude those immigrants, though some Republicans have called for more explicit bans on funding for illegal immigrants and have claimed the bill will funnel money to illegal immigrants.

FactCheck.org described those claims as "false" and noted that one version of the legislation already includes an explicit bar on federal funding for illegal immigrants' health care.

rorysmomma said...

Anonymous, obama wasn't lying the illegal immigrants get covered under medicaid.

rorysmomma said...

At least they do in North Carolina.

hennasplace said...

Swiff did not mince any words and probably the seniment of a lot of peope. It was a brilliant speech and probably the best one that the POTUS has given to date. He was more specific and I hope that the American will finally have a better understanding. Rome was not built in a day, and expecting the President to get the process for reform started. The process of the bill will process if passed, and other iniatives will be added as time goes on. Remember, one bird in the hand is better than two in the bush. The it's my way or the high way rarely works and someone always loses under that situation.

Ernesto said...

Anon 10:29: "It's the proper way to run a republic and a democracy."

Did you also believe that when Bush/Cheney were doing nothing but "invitation only" campaign speeches? And ejecting anyone who didn't stay on script?

Of course, you did...NOT.

Ahh hypocrisy, THE defining trait of the wingnut.

Cal Soldier said...

After tonight, I'm anxious to see how the GOP crawls off that wingnut branch they've been on all summer.

And climb down from that wingnut tree.

And leave the wingnut orchard.

I just have a feeling that they're not going to get away that easy.

I agree, watching Obama confront the wingnuts and radio Rwanda (AKA FOX NEWS) was great.

Joe Wilson was right to call Obama a liar.

this just in on the CNN ticker (you know that 'thing' that actually has REAL news?);
From Rep. Joe Wilson
“This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the President’s remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the President’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the President for this lack of civility.”

The Refuseniks looked like petulant children sitting there. And worse there were times when they had to look around to see if they should applaud or hiss. Why; because when you have no real convictions it's hard to know how to react unless prompted.

Its Obama and the Democrats who are in the toilet.Democrats have the numbers to pass anything they want.Yet they can't pass Obamacare.

What are Democrats scared of?

Gregory said...

I love the sound of teabaggers whining.... it sounds like victory.

"Obama packing the townhalls with his supporters".... I'm still laughing about this one. I guess they were the ones calling him a Marxist and acting like ignorant rednecks.

Your boy apologized, anony. He knows his behaviour was inappropriate, even if you don't.

black grl #1 said...

i imagine the Mr. Wilson's email & voicemail are filling up, & his phone is ringing off the w/ people calling him on the carpet.

i imagine he didn't anticipate that he'd be a 'house-hold' name - but for all the wrong reasons.

my favorite post-analysis statement came from Barnie Frank:

"when he (Obama said he was going to be a post-partisan president, i got post-partisan depression."

Jody said...

Anony and MrR..... you are so over... I am sticking with our president who said we must all move forward. The time for bickering is over. The time for action is now. And guess what, come this december, we will have health care reform...
You can snipe and snark to your little impotent desire... truth is, I will go to bed with a smile on my face knowing that OUR PRESIDENT just laid the ground work for getting it done.
We will move on and leave those of you who want to stomp your feet and call him/us names.
And, I will be relieved that health care will be there for you and me when we need it.

Losing insurance company payola, of course. Thanks to a corrupt pay-for-play campaign finance system supported by wingnuts like you.

Trapped in Joe Wilson Land (SC) said...

Are you serious mr. r?

What you saw was the visceral reaction of the embodiment of white male privilege when confronted with the knowledge that someone smarter, more thoughtful, more articulate, who actually made it on MERIT, is actually beating them by their own rules, using the playbook that they wrote.

They yell. They scream. They can't handle the mere image of a black president looking up at his black wife, then in the course of a speech, telling you what WILL happen. All of the republicans in the audience were looking like Strom Thurmond after his viagra prescription ran out. Impotent. Worthless. As obsolete as a white tailback in the NFL. All of the racism, bigotry, evil, death, destruction that people with your mindset hath wrought to this country. And even with all of that, all of the bullshit that we take from neo-con chronic chickenhawk pussies such as yourself and others he still made it. HE IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. TODAY. RIGHT NOW. FOR THE NEXT 1200 DAYS. AND PROBABLY THE NEXT 1460 AFTER THAT.

Brain dead republicans with racist appeals have nearly destroyed this country. You can thank God for good Americans, black and white, who will save your sorry asses from yourselves.


The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

Did anyone noticed Obama's look when the jerk Wilson shouted out? Wilson's disrespect was his audition to join the Faux News lying tour.

President Obama spanked the rethugs in front of the world. That a classy Field Negro behavior.

Granny, I know you would be all over this dude with his address etc. That's what I love about you. So he apologized, huh? I guess he wasn't such a radical true believer after all. Yep, mr. r and company must be very disappointed.

Go easy on em Jody. It's tough being a wingnut these days.

field negro said...

"Oh lord why did I put "Watkins" instead of "Wilson"! "

Raina.., that's an honest mistake. We knew exactly who you were talking about. You didn't even have to correct that,

Yo monie, what's in the water down there in SC? Wait, we gotta ask "Trapped In SC" he/she would know.

Ernesto said...

Anon 10:48 "did you object to Democrats..."

The townhalls were being disrupted by wingnuts yelling incoherently and getting rowdy. Are you telling me that Republicans would have allowed that at their events?

And can you IMAGINE what would have happened if Democrat had heckled Bush during a joint session of Congress? They probably would have been sent to Gitmo and waterboarded.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

BTW, Granny done got over her upset spell with President Obama. For a minute there I had taken him out my black book and put in the the brown one, but now I'm taking out the brown one and putting him back in the black one. His speech was excellent.

Did someone move Mr R's rock? Would you please put it back so he can slither back under it. Whenever Mr R is not under his rock and exposed to normal people for long periods of time his ugly, poisonous fangs start showing.

Maybe he can pull it together. I was disappointed Letterman didn't get into the topic of Great Britain's National Health program with guest Tony Blair last night. My Brit cousin, a true suburban "soccer mom" in a nation where soccer counts for something, gripes about aspects of the program, some of the delays for non-emergency services, but she says she would never, ever trade it for what we have here.

Nevertheless, I am solidly behind Mr. Obama, and as matter of fact had just recently written a re dedication to myself. I have trusted our President's sense of political timing during the elections and I have that same faith now.

I will send my letter of support to him and to Joe Wilson's dumb azz.

It was a speech. A good speech but just a speech. We have yet to see the actions. From a progressive standpoint there is a lot to dislike about the neutered public option and so-called tort reform. So I would withhold judgment until I see what's passed. I liked the speech. The President is a good talker.

As far as where the progressives are here's one who is still not quite sure of the President's plans. Sirota seems to be in the process of being dismissed by other liberals as a lunatic with an axe to grind but again, let's see what actually passes Congress.

At least 44 more moderate Members of the Democrat Caucus have gone on the record in opposition to the current health care bill in the House, a Hill source claims. Likewise, at least 57 liberal Members of the Democrat Caucus have gone on the record saying they will vote against a health care bill without a strong public option.

Unless multiple Democrats flip on their stated position on health care, Speaker Pelosi lacks the votes to pass a bill through the House on the strength of Democrat votes alone.

Seriously, as Barney Frank said... on what planet do you live? Overwhelmingly, the rude little rep from S. Carolina has been roundly denounced, by both sides of the aisle. No one is defending him. And, he acted like the impudent child he is by running out of the room and then saying "I'm sorry" as soon as he got called out for his rude behavior. Everyone agreed, the only one that looked the fool, was the S.Carolina representative.....

Here is the thing you should reserve your glee for.... when health care reform passes, and it will..... it does not have an exclusion for stupid. So you will be covered, too.

They have nothing else left but to agree with the disrespectful Joe Wilson and to find ways to put down our President. President Obama was awesome last night. His speech will go down as one of the greatest in history.

In a few years instead of the tea baggers carrying signs stating "Don't take away my Medicare!" they will be carrying signs stating "Don't take away my Public Option!". Oh yea, a Public Option will pass. And just like the Repugs love Medicare, they will love the Public Option. Damn hypocrites!

fn:

a speech does not a health reform plan make...

do not let the "facts" in this speech cloud the facts of this shady matter/obama's actual plans...

even i was appalled at the rudeness from the bigot from sc...indeed he owed obama an apology for his rabidly uncivilized outburst BUT
will obama ALSO apologize to him after we all see that this health reform plan is all lies/a HUGE medical corp sham???...

FOX news has 2 international empires...local affiliates in ALL cities and a cable news network...the FOX cable news network DID show obama's speech...
only the local FOX channels did not air it...
RSVP:

how is this any different from BET and BETJ??? at all????

BET did not air obama's speech either, only BETJ did...MILLIONS of people like me would rather die than watch any politico like obama tell any more blatant lies in a long boring speech...

so i thank god for BET, and FOX and EVERY other tv station that aired other options for viewers!...

krystalxlyte said...

Field:
Agreed. Wilson's a swine, but the focus needs to be on the fact that the speech was clear, Progressives have a lot to fight for (the P.O.'s alive, but needs to be pushed) and our moms and dads and aunts and uncles and grandparents need to be reminded of much of what the President emphasized tonight.

Besides I think the world saw, is clear on and is over the 15 mins. of self destruction repigs have subjected themselves to in childish antics sooo...

Those ain't actual facts Obama was spewing but actual lies.

RiPPa said...

Obama was a master salesman last night. He sold the sizzle and not the steak; damn good move. Whoever wrote that speech did a fine job. And he was excellent in his delivery.

He made it easy to forget the ambiguity of much of what he touched on as far as policy details. But that's where we as a people must be vigilant and question just exactly what he said.

Personally, I wished he would have considered Single Payer instead of being beholden to Big Pharma as he and his cohorts are. Although this was an excellent sales job. This is not the "Universal Healthcare" many of us progressives envisioned during the campaign.

I get the feeling that Corporate America always wins. Hell, I read the proposed "Public Option" will be administered, ran and controlled by Blue Cross.

don't knock the hustle, field yo. The bill already made it out of 4 committees already the last hurdle (finance) is going to be kind of tough but its further along than where the Clintons have gotten sans veto pen wave and following the hil-miester's footsteps in writing her own draft and proposing it to congress without any input from congress.

I share sentiment with the Germans, astounded at how could anyone NOT want the public option let alone the entire reform... can't wait until the repiglican tax cuts to expire and soon they too will be looking for CHANGE..on the ground! HA HA!!

NakedTruth said...

Whenever I get down on President Obama, I think about my experiences in Corporate America. I think about those times that I finally got a promotion only to fix a fkedup situation that no other person could fix. I remember being asked to outline a plan of action the day after taking on the position. I remember everyone, even the people that supported me, wanting me to fix shit right away. But in the end I got it done and not everyone was pleased but most were and then I was moved on to fix the next crisis because no way were they going to pay me six-figures to manage a department with no issues. I had to work for my damn money.

Our President is facing what most black people have faced in Corporate America for years - being given an opportunity to fix shit that somebody else broke and no other white boy can fix. And if the shit doesn't get fixed then guess what it's the black man's fault.

I am going to continue to support our President with my patience and my prayers. His heart is in the right place and I know that nobody else could be doing his job better. Because this country was in a crisis, a black man was elected President.


The naked truth is always chasing a well-dressed lie. Those damn lies being told by Rethugs are in their Sunday's best.

uptownsteve said...

ab

Why do you lie so much?

From your link............

"Sen. Barack Obama's wife and three close advisers have been involved with a program at the University of Chicago Medical Center that steers patients who don't have private insurance -- primarily poor, black people -- to other health care facilities.

Michelle Obama -- currently on unpaid leave from her $317,000-a-year job as a vice president of the prestigious hospital -- helped create the program, which aims to find neighborhood doctors for low-income people who were flooding the emergency room for basic treatment. Hospital officials say such patients hinder their ability to focus on more critically ill patients in need of specialized care, such as cancer treatment and organ transplants."

LACoincidental said...

NakedTruth: In deed, you speak the truth. When I got my job in LA, I was essentially hired to fix a myriad IT problems within my department because all the hotshot consultants and the long term employees couldn't get things done. Which is why I'm not stomping on the mulatto Harvard cat in the White House too hard.


AB: I don't know what you're beef is with Obama my sister, but you're so far left that you're doing a 180 and smacking your right ear -- ala John Birch.


I know you're gonna flame me for having the audacity to agree with NT and point out that you're out on a limb, so I'll just say what I think anyway. IMHO, the 'angry militant left' in this country are almost as counter-productive as the loony right. Yes, single payer is ideal since the government (read every tax paying citizen) is negotiating with drug companies, medical tech firms (my field) and hospitals for the lowest prices of care. No, a lot of Obama's healthcare plan isn't ideal. And yes, we must fight tooth and nail for the public option, and eventually single payer.

But pie in the sky Naderite politics are just as destructive as the loony right, because in essence its holding progress hostage for lofty ideals that we all know aren't possible in this country right now. The problem with so called "radicals" like you are that your holding your breathe for change to happen overnight and checking out for the long haul. Bill Maher (who is another 'radical' prick who thinks he knows everything) said it best -- Obama is Jordan playing on a garbage team.

Republicans don't have to do much but scare their base because the center-left is fighting each other. Between so-called 'Blue Dogs' more worried about keeping their congressional seats than doing anything on healthcare and liberals who are ready to sit out the next 3 years until Obama is possessed by the ghost of Che, how can he get anything done?

Forget fighting or bickering about Obama -- because he's not the problem with healthcare reform. AB, if you want change lobby your Congressperson and Senator. Organize with other progressives in your local area and do a teach-in.

So, right now its going to be the long fight until December. I suggest we all want get ready to call our congressperson and get into the streets for the fall. We (occassionally) did it when the Chimp in Chief was bombing Iraq because of Big Oil and his own daddy issues -- we can do it now!

alicia banks said...

us:

the truth hurts

but it will hurt you more to keep trusting and defending the evil done by elitists like the obamas!

read the entire article

then read this too:

On the rare occasions when other "news" media have bothered to connect the Urban Health Initiative to its glamorous creator, they have attempted to whitewash this tawdry program. Typical of such disingenuous coverage was a story in the Washington Post, which described it as "an innovative program to steer the patients to existing neighborhood clinics."


But no amount of journalistic lipstick can hide the reality that Mrs. Obama's initiative is a patient-dumping scheme. Such "cherry-picking," as Dr. Jouriles accurately describes it, was, at one time, fairly common. Prestigious institutions like the University of Chicago Medical Center routinely "dumped" Medicaid, uninsured and other unprofitable patients on less mercenary community hospitals. Many patients suffered needlessly, and more than a few actually died, as the result of this practice. So, in 1986, President Reagan signed the Emergency Medical Labor and Treatment Act (EMTALA) into law. EMTALA made such "redirection" illegal, but many high profile hospitals still chafed at being forced to treat poor patients. Enter Michelle Obama, UCMC's "Vice President for Community and External Affairs."


Mrs. Obama first hatched the UCMC program as the "South Side Health Collaborative," which featured a gang of "counselors" whose job it was to "advise" low-income patients that they would be better off at other hospitals and clinics. The program was so successful in getting rid of unwanted patients that she expanded it, gave it a new name, and hired none other than David Axelrod to sell the program to the public. According to the Sun-Times, "Obama's wife and Valerie Jarrett, an Obama friend and adviser who chairs the medical center's board, backed the Axelrod firm's hiring." Axelrod helped the future First Lady formulate a public relations campaign in which the "Urban Health Initiative" was represented as a boon to the community actuated by the purest of altruistic motives.


The resultant PR campaign was a study in Orwellian audacity. Chicago's inner city residents soon began hearing that UCMC's patient dumping program would "dramatically improve health care for thousands of South Side residents" and that the medical center was generously willing to provide "a ride on a shuttle bus to other centers." Likewise, the people who ran the community hospitals to which these unwanted patients were being shuttled began to read claims in local media to the effect that the Urban Health Initiative was good for them as well. Dr. Eric Whitaker, the Blagojevich crony who succeeded Mrs. Obama as Director of the program, repeatedly assured gullible reporters that the financial impact on these hospitals would be positive: "The initiative actually is improving their bottom lines." The CFOs of those hospitals were no doubt relieved to learn that treating Medicaid and uninsured patients is profitable.

george carlin said it best:

“I don't vote. Two reasons. First of all it's meaningless; this country was bought and sold a long time ago. The shit they shovel around every 4 years *pfff* doesn't mean a fucking thing. Secondly, I believe if you vote, you have no right to complain. People like to twist that around – they say, 'If you don't vote, you have no right to complain', but where's the logic in that? If you vote and you elect dishonest, incompetent people into office who screw everything up, you are responsible for what they have done. You caused the problem; you voted them in; you have no right to complain. I, on the other hand, who did not vote, who in fact did not even leave the house on election day, am in no way responsible for what these people have done and have every right to complain about the mess you created that I had nothing to do with.”

1. Use other blacks against him to ruin his name. (Bring on House Negroes in most cases to do this.)
2. Try to corrupt him with women and/or money.
3. Kill him because nothing else will work.

O.K. I get it now. You have a problem with President Obama because he has yellow skin? Because he's a light-skinned, redbone brother?

I grew up as a dark brown sister in the South and you can bet I had my negative moments with other black people and white people but I had to get over it and work on me. I support Obama not because I worship him and definitely not because he is black but because I think he is the better person to lead this country. Don't get me wrong, he needs to be held accountable just like anybody else but he has no competition right now.

And you are right, I should include uneducated, fearmonging and self-serving white people in step #1. They go along with house negroes. Always trying to bring a brother down.

The Blogger should have wrote! the WITCH'S, WARLOCK'S HIGH PRIEST, AND HIGH PRIESTESS of FOX NEW'S are out to Devour the President at any Cost!!!!

Now, when the President gave the speech to children Tuesday, he mentioned the lady who wrote HARRY POTTER! she was turned down TWELVE TIME'S before someone published her BOOK! I wonder why????????????????? think about it people!!!!

Some people cannot be Fooled!!! those people did not want to touch that book with a TEN FOOT POLE!!! They were Smart!!!

Ms. Banks' mental state is well known to the more veteran commenters here. It's why we largely ignore her unless she says something so jawdroppingly stupid that we HAVE to say something.

She's a loon. Nothing short of barring her from the blog will fix that.

thank you so much for the compliments as always

harriet t, malcolm x and ALL of my heros were also called "loons etc" by envious ignorant cowards like you...preesh "bruh"

ossie davis on perps like you in mx's eulogy:


There are those who will consider it their duty, as friends of the Negro people, to tell us to revile him, to flee, even from the presence of his memory, to save ourselves by writing him out of the history of our turbulent times. Many will ask what Harlem finds to honor in this stormy, controversial and bold young captain - and we will smile. Many will say turn away - away from this man, for he is not a man but a demon, a monster, a subverter and an enemy of the black man - and we will smile. They will say that he is of hate - a fanatic, a racist - who can only bring evil to the cause for which you struggle! And we will answer and say to them : Did you ever talk to Brother Malcolm? Did you ever touch him, or have him smile at you? Did you ever really listen to him? Did he ever do a mean thing? Was he ever himself associated with violence or any public disturbance? For if you did you would know him. And if you knew him you would know why we must honor him.

more info on Mr. Wilson from the Southern Poverty Law Ctr. - he's a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (no surprise there)

An "insightful" comment from their newsletter:
"Early editions of the SCV's Confederate Veteran newsletter defended the Ku Klux Klan, argued that the United States was created "for white people," and complained that "when a Negro has learned to read he ceases to work."

Thanks for info on Wilson. That is the most interesting thing I've read about him yet. I will have to wander over to splc.org to check him out.

Obama can give a heck of a speech. No doubt about it.
I, however, am more concerned with the content and ramifications of the plan rather than his oratory finesse.
Obama is proposing that government oversight will fix the fraud and abuse in the health care industry and use that savings to fund a $900,000,000.00 health care plan that the CBO says will really cost well over $1,000,000,000,00. The government's job in that area is nothing to brag about. Oh well Obama said so it must be true.
Obama is proposing a government option that will promote fair and improved competition in the health care industry. What will happen when the government regulates and taxes their private competition out of business? Americans will ultimately all be shifted to the government option when employers and individuals are financially squeezed. No doubt Obama will spin that end result to fault the greedy corporate and individual profit seekers. Profit is a bad thing don't you know? What will health care options be when there is only one show in town? VA health care is not the benchmark I prefer to use for health care in America.
Where are other goods and services for Americans being handled as a result of excessive government regulation? Thank goodness China's too far to get a blood pressure check so I guess Obama will just "insource" foreign nationals to care for our health needs when the greedy American doctors quit. Kinda like the inverse of job outsourcing to other countries from over regulation by the U.S. government.

Someone please explain to me this Tooth Fairy Plan whereby all Americans are going to get health insurance that is cheaper than ever before, provides for more care than ever before, prohibits rationing of services, holds nobody responsible for irresponsible behavior (except for the greedy profit seeking health care industrial providers) and all this will be deficit neutral?
I'm sure when the profit incentive is removed from the health care industry that research and development will boom and great new drugs and technologies will be discovered and provided for free or for mere pennies?
Who's smoking the crakepipe now?

I just want someone tell me what Republican want in the Health Care Bill . I have no idea how they want to solve it all I hear is want they do not like.

Do you republicans want a health care reform at all? If they do what does that look like. I do not want to hear what you hate about Obama or the dems I want to hear your ideas.

Pleas inform a sista

alicia banks said...

republicans want all the same things that dems want

i will be blogging about that later this pm...

what they want is for all of us to THINK they are bickering

so we will be too distracted to see that npne of them have presented ANY real plan to us...
because we were never the focus of any "reforms"...

and as the world gushers over obama's reading skills and wilson's lack of tact, that distraction is working like a charm

ie
the republicans are pretending they object to "illegal aliens/abortions" being covered
but
neither will be...

Great speech by 44 yesterday and it was more awesome to see a Rethug lose his marbles. At least Van Jones didn't heckle the President during a joint address of Congress lol. Now let's see some follow thru and get a good healthplan passed.

@Alicia Banks I'm going to check out this patient dumping stuff at the UC hospital but I'm thinking that mess was debunked during the election. And think if a good healthcare plan is enacted people might go to the doctor more to take care of themselves and if they have to go the hospital, they'll have isnurance, so hopefully no more dumping lol. We'll see and you brought up Larry Sinclair? Come on even the guy who paid him $10,000 to just show for a lie dectector test called him a pathelogical liar. You're better than this I hope and since you don't want go into politics, who in the political spectrum represents your interests the most?

@Alicia Banks And once more thing luv what a cheap shot talking about Obama's speech delivery. He himself took out the telepromper in chief crowd and yes he has speechwriters all many Presidents did but I'm sure he goes over every speech to make and last minute edits, just like every other President has. You're better than this (I hope).

Alicia, Alicia everything is not about you, darling. It amazes me that one person could engage in that much navel gazing. Doesn't your neck get tired?

Quite frankly The Alicia Banks Show no longer entertains, it's derivative, trite, egocentric, and appeals to an audience of one...okay, maybe two. It's hardly a ratings blockbuster. So let's put baby on a shelf and only bring it out for reasons of nostalgia or mockery.

Now back to the subject at hand, healthcare reform, Joe Wilson's complete lack of decorum concerning President Obama and the fact that South Carolina is now batting 0 for 2.

BLACK INK said...

For the sista who inquired, I submit the basic premise of The Republican Health Care Plan:

1. Reward responsible behavior eg. substance abuse and obesity should be discouraged with financial incentives .
2. Pre-existing conditions that are not a result of personal irresponsible behavior shall not be penalized in any fashion eg. an alcoholic would not be "entitled" to a liver transplant while someone borne with hemochromocytosis would be eligible..
3. All medical students must complete an accredited American residency program before being eligible to practice medicine in the United States. In addition, upon successful completion of said residency program the doctor must provide a minimum of two (2) years of community service at a location of greatest need, not of his/her choice. These doctors would staff Indigent Care Clinics throughout America and would be supervised by board certified attending physicians. Anyone in America could be attended at these locations for nominal fees. All meds would be generic. Medical malpractice would be limited to gross negligence or intentional wrongful acts and the proceeds of such claims would go into a fund for direct care to the injured party with the remainder, if any, to fund further indigent care, not pad the lawyers pockets or be a lotto. Atty. fees for these case would be on an hourly basis and consistent with equitable work performed. Emergency Departments would refer all non emergency non paying patients to these facilities for initial care and follow up.
4. Medical Savings Plans promoted that are portable.
5. Low cost catastrophic coverage plans with high deductibles and low cost loans to provide for the deductible as necessitated.
6. Severe civil and criminal penalties for fraud and abuse perpetrated by any party to a health care encounter.
7. Health insurance providers should be made as accountable and competitive in a free market environment as possible eg. policies all available across state lines
8. Reasonable and equitable Tort Reform for the non-indigent sector as well
9. Change the onerous rules and regulations of the FDA to make drugs more readily available and less expensive without unduly jeopardizing safety.....but appreciating that technology and all the potential it brings does not come with a 100% money back guarantee.
10. Reason over bureaucracy and greed.

The basic flaw in the American health care system is its abusive entitlement mentality without appropriate checks and balances that is perpetuated by both the health care providers and the the health care recipients.
Whenever an individual shops for goods or services, other than when an insurance company or another 3rd party is responsible, he/she evaluates the value of what is received based on the quality, benefit, convenience and COST. Further the individual knows that if the product purchased is not properly cared for and maintained it will result in higher incurred expenses down the road.
If that basic principle of responsibility is incorporated in health care we're on to something. The question is: are we as a people up to the challenge?
