THE DEMOCRATS ARE PAN HANDLING…..(again)
I received this email today from Chris Van Hollen, Chairman of the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee).
“In 48 hours, the nation will know how committed we are to helping President Obama deliver health care reform and bring all the big changes that America needs. That’s because in just 48 hours Democrats have to report how much money we have in the bank. The nation is watching to see what we report. They will use that all important number to pass a judgment on whether President Obama still has momentum on his side – or whether it’s shifting back to the Republicans”
According to the President, Obamacare is okay for your family…..but not his.
ABC News: Dr. Orrin Devinsky, a neurologist and researcher at the New York University Langone Medical Center, said that elites often propose health care solutions that limit options for the general public, secure in the knowledge that if they or their loves ones get sick, they will be able to afford the best care available, even if it’s not provided by insurance. Devinsky asked the president pointedly if he would be willing to promise that he wouldn’t seek such extraordinary help for his wife or daughters if they became sick and the public plan he’s proposing limited the tests or treatment they can get.
The president refused to make such a pledge, though he allowed that if “it’s my family member, if it’s my wife, if it’s my children, if it’s my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care.

DR. DAVINSKI: If your wife or your daughter became seriously ill, and things were not going well, and the plan physicians told you they were doing everything that could be done, and you sought out opinions from some medical leaders in major centers and they said there’s another option you should pursue, but it was not covered in the plan, would you potentially sacrifice the health of your family for the greater good of insuring millions or would you do everything you possibly could as a father and husband to get the best health care and outcome for your family? PRESIDENT OBAMA: … does she get hip replacement surgery even though she was fragile enough that they weren’t sure how long she would last whether she could get through the surgery. I think families all across America are going through decisions like that all the time. and you’re absolutely right that if it’s my family member, my wife, if it’s my children, if it’s my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care. but here’s the problem that we have in our current health care system. Is that there is a whole bunch of care that’s being provided that every study, every bit of evidence that we have indicates may not be making us healthier.
NOTE: Obama is such a hypocrite, he appointed Arne Duncan who was the head of the Chicago School system as his “Education Secretary”. Chicago schools are among the worst in the nation…..neither of the Obama Princesses EVER attended public schools. Another example of Obamas double standard…..Chicago’s failing government run schools were good enough for your family…..but not good enough for his!
