OBAMA CYCNICALLY BETRAYS HIS SUPPORTERS
BUT NO BACKBONE
Obama campaigned for health insurance
reform. In the Presidential
he told potential
voters over and over that he wanted all Americans insured and they
should all have

meant to get votes and his
promises could not be trusted. We warned that his first
loyalty was to Wall Street.
His populist oratory was designed to deceive his supporters
into thinking he was still their
treachery was very clear to me a year ago. Consider the evidence now.
Above all, on August 17, 2009, he
told the country that such a public health insurance option
was "just a sliver: in his
plan." In other words, he would not fight for it. It was not
important. Not surprisingly,
progressives everywhere feel utterly betrayed. Progressive
Congressmen and women feel the same, but
are mostly more cautious in their
criticism. Not so, Rep. John
Conyers, whose anger and sarcasm about Obama's
turn-around ae clear.

write home about. The public option is only available, which is the only way
manage cost and get some competition to 1,300 other health insurance
the only way he could have got that through is that progressives
their nose and voted for it anyway."
When Conyers was asked if the president had shown
leadership in the
health care debate, Conyers replied:
"Of course not, of course not. You know,
holding hands out and
beer on Friday nights in the White
House and bowing down to every nutty right-wing
proposal about health care, and
saying on occasion that public options aren't all that
important is doing a disservice to
the Barack Obama that I first met who was an
ardent single-payer enthusiast
... Rahm Emanuel has said: Just give us anything and we
will declare victory. Not only is
it not a victory, but when it doesn't work, guess who
will come at him: the same guys that were
saying let's go along with anything... (L)ook
the bill doesn't go into effect for three
years. Many of the people that we are trying to help
will be dead by then."
the year winds down, it is crystal clear that Obama "bait and switched"
his backers. He absolutely cannot be
trusted. He will accept "any old" health care bill,
just to boost his image among his less
attentive, more emotional backers. But I predict
he badly underestimates how angry his former
supporters will now be at him.
Get a taste of how angry progressives are at Obama
for this clear
betrayal of his promises. Many consider
his health care cave-in a "comprehensive
care plan is so full of concessions to drug companies, so crammed with
a constantly growing list of bailouts and exceptions for insurance
companies that the White House is deliberately
withholding information on it from Obama' own
SHAME ON HIM!
No matter what policy area you look at, Obama shows he is not an agent of
change, as he told everyone in his campaign for the Presidency. He is a pawn of
Wall Street and the military and medical industrial complexes. Morally spinelesss,
covers up for torturers and banker-crooks alike. With a straight face, he tells us

no call for investigation. Only a massive cover-up. With a straight face, he
says Bush and

"poor" and "poverty" words that he never uses? How does
giving trillions to banksters
help Main Street? For someone supposedly so bright and articulate, Obama now seems
as dumb and inarticulate when it comes to real bread and butter issues, as he is
protective of those with the most power and privileges.

In Congressional testimony this week, Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder
would not reveal any definite plans that Obama's Administration had to investigate
torture under Bush. He would not acknowledge that there was anything a government
official could do, to bring his prosecution. Asked if President Obama has the power
legally to detain a US citizen or another person indefinitely without bringing charges,
Holder answered:it might, indeed, be legal if it's "tied to" a
agreement" or "custom". Presumably, Holder was referring to the
new custom started
by Bush. (Source: David Swanson: http://afterdowningstreet.org/node/42640

care? Obama has arbitrarily and dictatorially said a

"OFF THE TABLE." Why? Obama is too
intimidated by the defenders of the status quo.
What a leader we have as President!
A majority of
Americans want the option of such a system. Not Obama. He refuses
to seek real reform of health care. The
health care lobbies are too strong. Millions of Americans
cannot afford even to get basic preventative
health care. 60% of
Americans believe that should
be the right
of every American. Not Obama. First, he says we must make happy the for-profit
companies, pharmaceutical companies and HMO's that pay their top executives
salaries. His point man in the US Senate. Max Baucus, even had protestors,
including five doctors and nurses, arrested when
they sought just one, just one, witness to testify
on behalf of a single-payer system. (Last year,
Baucus got $183,000 from health insurance companies
and $229,000 from drug companies, according to
CNBC's Ed Schulz.) In the House, they will get
a hearing, thanks to Rep. Kucinich. http://pdamerica.org

Advocates With Removal Of Support for Family Planning
Ever Wonder Why US Health Insurance Is So Expensive?
"Health" Industry Executives Ruin Shareholders and Hurt Consumers
Absurdly high health company
executive pay is a big part of the problem.
There are about 23 big health companies. Using United Healthcare as
example, their CEO was paid about $324 million over a five year
period. For the 23 health
insurance companies, that's about $7 billion just for just 23
CEOs. If you add in all the
Vice Presidents and the "fat cats" on these companies' Boards of Directors, the
5-year cost is probably about $30 Billion just for these companies. If their
reduced by 80% in a public national health insurance scheme, that would go a long
way toward providing more affordable health care. Let's say a government run health
insurance program costs $10,000 for each family. This alone would pay the health
insurance for more than 500,000 American families a year. The same argument
can be made for the high costs of many others goods and services.
