President Obama is determined that the House of Representatives pass the Health Care reform bill before congress breaks for Easter (end of March). President Obama is completely out-of-touch with the American people. In a recent poll conducted by AP-GFK between March 3-8, 2010 the top four issues Americans care about are...
- The Economy
- The Deficit
Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House of Representatives, is also hell-bent on getting this legislation passed as soon as possible. It's amazing what comes out of her mouth sometimes. She said, "...we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it." Are you kidding me? The future of America's economy isn't a grab bag that you buy for a $1 trillion and look in after the fact...surprise! NO! NO! NO! We need to know what is in the bill and how it will affect us completely BEFORE it is passed! What a freakin' joke.
If the House passes the bill it will go back to the Senate, in which Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leaders plans on using the "reconciliation" or "nuclear" option to pass it with a simple majority that President Obama recently came out in support of when he was against it in 2007 saying you can't govern like that. Another flip flop from the master flopper flips his mind.
We have to ask the question why? Why is President Obama so determined on getting this passed when the majority of American's are against it? Why is he risking his office? Why did Pelosi encourage fellow democrats to support the bill even if it means their careers? Why force it down our throats? WHY?!
