Wonder why President Obama is losing support around the country, maybe it's his refusal to listen to the American people.
His Healthcare plan is bombing with the American people because like it or not Joe Wilson was right. In his speech President Obama said savings from Medicare will pay for most of his plan. Americans know this is not true but because he is the President we are not allowed to call it a lie. Medicare takes in on average $300 billion a year, they spend $400+ billion a year. How in the world can you save money in a program that is already running in the red.
H.R. 3200 says illegals will not be allowed to participate in a public insurance option, however there is no mechanism to prevent anyone from enrolling if they meet the financial restrictions. Citizenship simply will not be questioned upon their application for enrollment. Needless to say, if the question does arise there will be no requirement for verification of citizenship.
The president said it was a lie to say illegals would be covered by the public option, oh really Mr. President?
Sept 12, 2009 it is expected that 30+ thousand Americans will march on Washington D. C. hoping the President and Congress will take notice and listen to their demands.
President Obama has chosen to leave town and pretend nothing is going on in D. C. Is it any wonder people cannot believe or trust this President.
The foundation of the American Republic is the right of every American to a Redress Their Grievances with their government. Americans expect and demand their government responds to their grievances. Ignoring the people will not improve President Obama's approval but will succeed in tearing America apart.
Older Americans remember when Khrushchev said:
"We can’t expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism. We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within”.
President Obama seems to believe Khrushchev was right and the American people would idly stand by and allow it to happen. Ignoring the American voice and pretending the American people don't care will only lead to civil unrest that will not destroy America but will destroy this President and the Democrat Party.
There is a quiet civil anti-government revolution that is beginning to take shape in this government. If Congress and President Obama continue to pretend it doesn't exist then the are more naive and power crazed than anyone could ever imagine.
The mad spending in Washington has awakened the American people and they are sick and tired it. With Obamacare being forced down our throats and escalation of Obama's War in Afghanistan, another 30-40 thousand additional troops by 2010, America is bankrupt. The true number of unemployed in America is higher than anytime since the Great Depression and Americans that are working are not spending for fear of what may come in the very near future. President Obama is doing nothing but running around the country giving campaign speeches promising everything to everyone.
Like the Emperor With No Clothes, we are seeing Obama with no leadership or answers. He is wandering the Globe in his own state of reality refusing to listen to anyone that does not agree with him. He is like a drug addict that is in a constant state of denial. He was so caught up in the media hype during the campaign that he still believes he is the most admired and trusted person on earth. He really believes he knows best and everyone that doesn't agree are just redneck illiterate nobodies.
I am certain the media will spin the march on Washington into something of little importance while they portray President Obama's speech in Minnesota as another glorious occasion. This will only add to the anger people are feeling toward this Administration, Congress and some of the Media networks.
