President Barack Obama warned Thursday that if Congress doesn't deliver health care legislation by the end of the year, the opportunity will be lost, a plea to political supporters to pressure lawmakers to act. "If we don't get it done this year, we're not going to get it done," Obama told supporters by phone as he flew home on Air Force One from a West Coast fundraising trip.You heard the man. We've got to do everything we can to obstruct this clusterfuck from getting passed this year.
Of course, this is all part of the permanent campaign, since that's all he's really good at (with my emphasis):
Obama's political organization, Organizing for America, invited campaign volunteers to a midday conference call to describe a nationwide June 6 kickoff for its health care campaign. The president's message to his re-election campaign-in-waiting was simple: If volunteers don't pressure lawmakers to support the White House's goal on health care, Washington would drag its feet and nothing would change.
"The election in November — that did not bring about change, it just gave us an opportunity for change," Obama said. "So now, we are really going to have to remobilize, we have all had a chance to catch our breath after election and we have gotten a lot of things done during our first four months."
I'd say you've gotten a little too much done during the first four months, but then again, I'm just a hateful right-wing extremist. And a RACIST!!! too.
Oh, and I guess I also hate families and businesses...
The president said the costs of the nation's $2.5 trillion health care system are crushing families and businesses and pose the largest threat to the economy.
That's funny. I thought Obama posed the largest threat to our economy. Again, RACIST!!!
