    Obama Criticizes Republicans for Blocking Health Care Bill

    Obama Criticizes Republicans for Blocking Health Care Bill - Political News - FOXNews.com


    WASHINGTON President Barack Obama said he is confident Congress will pass "a good health care bill," as months of rancor over reforming the nation's health care system seemed to be easing Sunday, with the White House playing down an immediate role for a government insurance option.

    At the same time, Obama was critical of Republican opponents who he said were trying to block an overhaul of the nation's heath care system for political gain.

    "I believe that we will have enough votes to pass not just any health care bill, but a good health care bill that helps the American people, reduces costs, actually over the long-term controls our deficit. I'm confident that we've got that," Obama said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS' "60 Minutes. "There are those in the Republican party who think the best thing to do is just to kill reform. That that will be good politics."

    Hmmm someone in the White House needs to inform Mr. Obama it's just not some folks in the Republican party who want this thing to be killed off. The last time I looked allot of "AMERICANS" from all sides of the Political Spectrum want this thing to be killed off. but hey typical Demogod attacks blame it on the Republicans and if that doesn't work then go after the So-Called Right Wing Folks never mind the actually truth out there. Once again Mr. Obama is lieing threw his Teeth and he knows it.

    It's okay if you're scared. I know you like avoiding the topic.

    That question wasn't directed at me. It was to you, sir. That makes two questions you're forced to answer, my friend. Care to take a shot?

    No, because the republicans can't block anything. Obama blaming the republicans would be like you blaming me because you paid your bills late, missed a car payment or bought a bag of shake. Republicans can not stop Obama because they lack the ability to fill-a-buster, just like I lack the ability to delay your mailman or bank or hide you bills so that your payments will be late or make your dealer sell you a bag of shake.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    In the words of Michael Steele: "Bring it to the floor and vote on it, baby".

    But, that ain't gonna happen, because when this bill screws the pooch, the Democrats need someone to point the finger at. They don't have the balls to take it all on their own.

    The president "prefers the public option," Gibbs said. "However, he said what's most important is choice and competition."
    If the President thinks that choice and competition is what's most important, why aren't democrats even considering allowing purchasing insurance across state-lines?

    Yes. Granted, not directly through votes because the Democrats can pass it without them for the most part. But through trying to get voters to rise up and become against it. That said, that's a rather narrow summarized question from Scorp's post. I don't have issue with Obama saying republicans are trying to block THE health care bill. However, I have issue with this:

    Note, to "kill reform", not kill THIS reform.

    So I'll ask you. Do you think the President is highlighting a majority opinion held by Republicans, that they want to kill REFORM in general? Or do you think he's attempting to use an extreme minority in an attempt to make it appear to be the majority reason why people are opposed to this bill? Do you agree with his implication that the prime force of this is due to Republicans wanting to kill REFORM in general?

    You can dodge the issue all you want -- fact of the matter is the GOP cannot stop the bill, only the Dems can, and any blame laid on the GOP for its failure is nothing but partisan hackery.
