    President Obama Sits Down With Bill O'Reilly Ahead of Super Bowl

    I did not see where anyone posted the interview, so here it is. Sorry if it's a duplicate.

    NOTE: I did not copy the whole interview... just a few parts.

    President Obama Sits Down With Bill O'Reilly Ahead of Super Bowl - FoxNews.com

    O'REILLY: The Supreme Court is going to hear this one way or the other.

    OBAMA: What the American have said is we want cost controls in health care, we want security in health care. What I've said to the Republicans is if you have ideas in terms of improving the health care system, if you have ideas that I can embrace on things like...

    O'REILLY: They're not going to bother with it, though. They're going wait until it goes to the court and hope it thrown out 5-4. My question is are you prepared if it gets thrown out? What are you going to do?

    OBAMA: Here's what I'm not prepared to do, I'm not prepared to go back to a day when the American people if you have got a pre-existing condition, if you had a heart attack then you can't get help.
    Can any health care law supporters cite a credible source showing that someone having a heart attack was refused help, anywhere in the US, for having a 'pre-existing condition'?



    O'REILLY: Do you deny the assessment? Do you deny that you are a man who wants to redistribute wealth.

    OBAMA: Absolutely.
    Really?
    OBAMA: It's not that I want to punish your success; I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you that they've got a chance to success, too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.



    OBAMA: Absolutely. I didn't raise taxes once. I lowered taxes over the last two years.
    Really?
    Obama's Budget: Almost $1 Trillion in New Taxes Over Next 10 yrs, Starting 2011
    Obama Raised Taxes Today. Yup, Not Just the Rich.



    OBAMA: But, Bill, I just want to be clear about this, because if you look what we have done, what we said was, if you have health care that you like, you keep it.
    Any number of posters here have already linked to sources showing this is not correct.



    O'REILLY: Well, that's our live part of this deal. And I have to say, I enjoyed talking to you. I disagree with you sometimes. I hope you think I'm fair to you, I try to be. But I wish you well in the next two years.
    Now... imagine that interview had been between Keith Olbermann and George W. Bush... would it have been as respectful?

    People have heart attacks. Get treated. Then the insurance company cancels the policy or denies the claim for followup treatment.

    No ER can refuse to teat someone until they are stable. But if insurance won't pay, then they are moved to a public hospital or discharged from care.

    Obamacare will move all of us to that public hospital and chase a bunch of the brightest away from choosing medical school altogether.

    We'll all get to go to "the clinic".

    If the Health Care law is so good, then why are there some 700 waivers already issued?

    Don't forget Congress. They don't want it for themselves either.

    Yeah, why is that? Have any of the congress critters ever given an answer to that?

    I'll answer it for them. You see, they, my friend, are the patricians. You and I are mere plebians.
