Obama the Hypocrite Gives the Reason Why He Rushes the Health Care Bill

August 3rd, 2009 Ryan Christy

Back in November 2004, Obama was on the radio, talking about the whole process of legislation with a lunatic kook fringe host, Randi Rhodes:

OBAMA: When you rush these budgets that are a foot high and nobody has any idea whats in them and nobodys read em.

KOOK FRINGE HOST: Fourteen pounds, it was!

OBAMA: Yeah. And it gets rushed through without any clear deliberation or debate, then these kinds of things happen, and I think that this is in some ways what happened to the Patriot Act. I mean, you remember there was no real debate about that, it was so quick after 9/11 that it was introduced that people felt very intimidated by the administration.

That is almost five years ago, the whiner that is the man-child Barry Obama, complaining about the Bush administration rushing bills through Congress without giving members of the House time to even read the bills!

And just last week on Wednesday, Obama had this exchange in his press conference:

REPORTER: Why the rush? Are you worried that, if theres a delay until the fall, the whole effort will collapse?

OBAMA: Im rushed because I get letters every day from families that are being clobbered by health care costs and they ask me, Can you help? So Ive got a middle-aged couple that will write me, and they say, Our daughter just found out shes got leukemia, and if I dont, uh, do something soon, we just Either going to go bankrupt or, were not going to be able to get our daughter the care,

So Rahm Emmanuel is ramming the bill through Congress, without giving them the time to read the bill, because Barack Obama is getting letters. But of course he only gets letters from the families in worst-case scenarios, and never from the ones who oppose. You see, nobody opposes the compassionate Barack Obama, other than the right-wing extremists (that’s what he wants you to perceive). Folks, the letters are 15-to-1 in opposition to ObamaCare over in Congress. Nevertheless, we gotta hurry get this bill passed, because he’s getting all these letters.

    Actually, if the couple with the daughter that had leukemia were to receive help under obamacare the government response would be more like this.  Dear _________:  We are sorry to learn of the situation that you are dealing with.  We are informing you at this time that due to your condition, the costs involved and the very great potential that even with an attempt to resolve your health issue there is a high probablility that, long term, your condition cannot be resolved.  It is not appropriate to use resources which are in short supply to address an issue that has no practical long term benefit. We wish you the very best and hope that in the future if we can be of assistance you will take the opportunity to use OBAMACARE.  Best regards.

    you are spot on!  that is exactly what obamacare will do!  but there are so many irresponsible people out there who dont want to provide for themselves...you know, the ones who ACORN recruited to vote for obama...... the same ones who obama now feels compelled to "pay back" and to "keep them poor and dependent on him for everything".  they would rather bring everyone else in our country down to their level than to do anything to raise themselves up out of poverty.  the socialists are implementing their strategy to a tee....overload the system with needy folks who look to the government to supply their needs from cradle to grave.  once you have them in your voting block, you have them for life....and you keep power for life.  sounds kind of like a dictator doesnt it?  the REAL American Patriots need to stand up and take back our country now!!  this nation was founded on solid, God fearing principles, and socialism wasnt it!!

    Its OK Im originally from Boston so I"m Pats, Sox, Bruins, Celtics. Its ingrained! At least well have plenty to talk about in 4 weeks that doesnt revolve around cheating politicians! We can talk about cheating linesmen and QBs! Ha.

    Hey, thank you for all the help to protect my identity on here. You and B2B have been a true asset to me and I will appreciate you always.

    I recently found this site and like what I see.  I hope to contribute and add to the discussion.

    The hypocrisy of this administration is astonishing.  One of the real reasons they want this stuff pushed through so quickly is so that no one finds out whats actually in them.  And its not just the Dems.  The GOP is just as guilty.  Us conservatives need to hold them accountable as well.

    Obama promised us that we could keep our health insurance if were happy with it, but buried deep in the bill was language that would have forced us to switch to the Public Option if we made any changes to our private insurance. 

    When this was discovered and reported there was a lot of back tracking.  We need to keep pushing back on this.  Poll numbers show that the majority of Americans are not liking what they are hearing on this debate.  Obama wanted this thing voted on before the break and it didnt happen.  I firmly believe that its because the silent majority isnt being silent anymore.  This site and others are a great way for us to voice our opinions.

    Politicians are politicians.  Most are not motivated by whats best for the people they represent.  Most are motivated by being reelected.  Its really sickening if you think about it.

    There should be a law that requires any piece of legislation to be placed in the public eye via a website for anyone to view for 2-3 weeks.  This would give everyone who wants to plenty of time to fully digest anything.

    The sad part is that most legislation is not written by congresspeople.  They are created by other groups and funneled to the congresspeople.  I bet there is maybe 40 out of 400+ congresspeople who have fully read the Healthcare bill and I bet out of those 40, only about 4 have fully understood the meaning by it...

    Undrafted free agent linebacker Gary Guyton will emerge as a star for my Pats this year. Chris Baker and Joey Gallaoway provide quality depth on offense. Vince Wilfork will have a career year as he strives for his big new contract. And of course that great offensive line will keep Brady healthy, leading to yet another scoring record for the boys in blue.

    Patriots go 14-2, then steamroller Tennessee and San Diego in the playoffs prior to crushing the overmatched Giants in the Super Bowl.

    Meanwhile, the Niners may win seven games (assuming they play Detroit seven times). While Belichick hoists the bubbly, Singletary will be sobbing uncontrollably.

    Sorry, but the truth hurts...

    So check this out. I click on UC and I land on a Yahoo sign-in page. Interesting. Makes me kindaa jumpy. Oh...sorry, I didnt know. Sorry. Sorry.

    Okay...lets see...Obama, right? The Dick Vermeil of the White House. It could be that hes a sniveling sycophant. Nah. The population is stupid, but theyre not morons...yet. I guess Osamabama Hussein Obama has a hefty load of tough decisions. I got the impression hes already decided to wait, but hes also the Dick Vermeil of the White House.

    aliy just go bathe in chocolate milk.
  • Dora
    I see that your impostor is not only pretending to be you, Aliy.
  • aliy
    See Dora, I told you! I dont know who Anti-Aliy is but it can be very confusing for a lot of people.
  • Sarah Chandler
    What can I say? Liberals are often hypocrites. Well, if these people want to know what Obama can do for them, they dont need to write any letters to him to find out. Im telling them now. The best thing Obama can do for anyone is GET OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!!
  • aliy
    Ill drink to THAT!

    There once was another President who said we had to act now in order to save the country. That was FDR and his emergency resulted in thousands of Japanese Americans being rounded up, their possessions confiscated, and them being interned. FDR professed to the American people that it had to be done in order to save the country; sound familiar! If nothing else we should learn from FDR that doing the wrong thing for the right reason isnt going to work. Let us take our time on this issue and do it right!!
