WASHINGTON –signaled on Sunday it is ready to abandon the idea of giving Americans the option of government-run health insurance as part of his ambitious health care proposal.
Facing mounting opposition to the overhaul, administration officials left open the chance for a compromise with Republicans that would include health insurance cooperatives. Such a concession is likely to enrage his liberal supporters but could deliver Obama a much-needed win on a top domestic priority opposed by GOP lawmakers.
Officials from both political parties reached across the aisle in an effort to find compromises on proposals they left behind when they returned to their districts for an August recess.
Obama has been pressing for the government to run a health insurance organization to help cover the nation's almost 50 million uninsured, but Republicans remain steadfast in arguing against it."This is precisely WHY there must be checks and balances. WHY Russia, and Europe, and China, and most of South America are run by socialists who fancy themselves atop the food chain and revel in looking down upon what they consider to be the detritus of humanity.
I omitted Australia because Australians are, at heart, free people who'd like to keep it that way. Yes, they bow to a Queen who purports to know best but sometime in the not too distant future that'll change too.
All God's chillun got to be free. Those who see nothing bigger than themselves, a deity, a family, a country, they're the ones wanting to remain nurtured through the good graces of an all-consuming government. THEY are what's important. THEIR ideas supersede all others and if we don't agree they'll hire armed men to come kill us until the rest DO agree.
That's why the socialist left claiming that the rightwing resembles a Hitler-like entity is laughable. NAZI translates to German Socialist Peoples Who Hate All Others. Just like the libs do.
All WE want is to be left alone and rise or fall as our stars declare. Sure, we're a nation and nation's lend helping hands to their people, but for chrissake there is a HUGE difference between a modicum of assistance and working just to be sure lazy ass old Rufus gots his cable bill paid on time.
Now let's watch the fireworks as Emperor Obo The First backs off of yet ANOTHER campaign promise.
Hell, we never believed a word he said to begin with, so his lies go in one ear and out the other, but his messianic-like worshipers are going to shit a brick.
