Having caught some clips of the President’s speech last night on Youtube, it reminded us of the stereotype of the dunder-headed American’s failure to be understood in English by a non-English speaking person and thinking that the problem will be solved if only he said the same exact thing only… louder and slower.
Let’s bottomline this: Libs were thrilled with Obama’s speech – thrilled that he “re-asserted” himself into the battle. Conservatives were less than overwhelmed. In short, nothing has changed. The President has still failed to adequately explain how he intends to pay for it and his current hedging with respect to the public option is representative of a bill that is still wanting for specifics… except for the fact that “the time for bickering is over. The time for games has passed. Now is the season for action.” All for legislation that won’t take effect for four years.
Exit question: Won’t government-managed healthcare create a medical-industrial complex similar to the military-industrial complex the Left so despises?
