Barack Obama Privately Supports Public Option … While Americans State Fear of Losing Private Health Insurance Trumps Public Option
Barack Obama continues to not listen to the will of the majority of the American People. They are resoundly against a public option, yet behind the scenes Obama pushes for one.
Barack Obama, if you deem 53% of the vote to be a mandate, what is 63% then?
The Two faces of Obama: I support government Single Payer … It’s not an integral part of Obamacare
In the end, guaranteeing no one is forced to change from their private health insurance trumps giving consumers the choice of a “public option.” President Barack Obama has claimed that there is nothing in the Obamacare bill that will make individuals change their health insurance. However, there is nothing in the bill that states it will ensure that they keep their same coverage either. The fact of the matter is that Obama cannot guarantee such events will take place. Who is to say that employers would not opt to a lower premium government public option and all employees will be forced to the government insurance plan without a choice?
One of the main reasons why Americans do not support Obamacare is because 63% of American voters state that the fear of losing private insurance trumps the public option. Obama’s public option is looked upon by Independents as a deal breaker. Most moderates put guaranteeing that no one is forced to change their health insurance first.
Sixty-three percent (63%) of voters nationwide say guaranteeing that no one is forced to change their health insurance coverage is a higher priority than giving consumers the choice of a “public option” health insurance company.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 29% take the opposite view. They say it’s more important to give people a government-sponsored non-profit health insurance option.
Obama and the Democrats have spoke from so many sides of their mouth with regards to the government run public option that they have lost the trust of the American people on this issue. First there is supposed to be a public option passed by the House, then Max Baucus says there is no support and there won’t be one and that was seconded by Barack Obama only to hear that Democrat Majority leader says there will be a public options and behind the scenes President Barack Obama strongly backs a public option.
Despite months of seeming ambivalence about creating a government health insurance plan, the Obama White House has launched an intensifying behind-the-scenes campaign to get divided Senate Democrats to take up some version of the idea in the weeks just ahead.
President Barack Obama has long advocated a so-called public option, while at the same time repeatedly expressing openness to other ways to offer consumers a potentially more affordable alternative to health plans sold by private insurers.
But now, senior administration officials are holding private meetings almost daily at the Capitol with senior Democratic staff to discuss ways to include a version of the public plan in the health care bill that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., plans to bring to the Senate floor later this month, according to senior Democratic congressional aides.
Wasn’t it Barack Obama that stated to “We the People” that the public option was not an integral part of the Obamacare plan? If it’s not integral then why is Obama under the cloak of darkness behind the scenes looking to have a public option? Hmm? Is anything that Obama says supposed to be believed? Why would Obama need to do this behind the scenes? Because public option is code for “Single Payer” government healthcare.
What part does “The Once” not understand that they people want their private healthcare and are willing to dance with the devil they know rather than “The One” that will take it away.
