Didn’t President Barack Obama tell the American people in his State of the Union speech that his second year in office would be entirely devoted to jobs? It would appear that Obama not only does not listen to the American people, but does not listen to his own speeches either.
Barack Obama is once again taking his Obamacare show on the road to try and sell the American people on his same, tired, unpopular and unwanted health care reform. Obama plans to pitch his same tired speech at stops in Philadelphia, PA and St. Louis, MO.
Obama’s pitch in Philadelphia, along with a stop in St. Louis Wednesday, comes as the president begins an all-out effort to pass his health care proposals. Though his plan has received only modest public support, Obama has implored lawmakers to show political courage and not let a historic opportunity slip away.
Despite staunch Republican opposition, Democratic leaders are cautiously optimistic they can pass a bill without GOP votes.
“I think the trend is in the right direction because people see that the status quo is absolutely broken,” Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union”.
The lies and misrepresentations continue from the LEFT with regards to Obamacare. It is the opposition of the people that is driving Obama’s failure to pass his health care reform. The people do not see Obamacare as a trend in the right direction, they want no part of it. This is the reason with in a Rasmussen poll, 55% of Americans wanted Congress to scrap their current bill and start from scratch. Only 37% wanted to go forward. 52% of Americans oppose the bill while only 44% are in favor.
Americans look at Obamacare as an unmitigated disaster and would rather have nothing than be saddled with the government take over of health care. Of course since Obama does not know what the word no means, he is willing to take America and the Democrat party down the politically suicidal path of passing this piece of legislation against the will of the American public.
Can we please have more hope and change President Obama?
By the way, what ever happened to concentrating on jobs and unemployment? Obama’s second year has been nothing more than more of the same of his first.
