It took a few days, but the White House has finally gotten around to to responding to this collection of clips outlining President Obama’s long-held desire to move the country toward a Canadian-style single-payer system.
The response comes from former journalist Linda Douglass who joined the Obama campaign several months after she had done interviews with him as an unbiased reporter. The response leaves one to wonder what exactly Douglass’ standards for truth were in her previous endeavors when she highlights as evidence a promise everyone has already noted President Obama can’t keep: That if you like the health insurance you’ve got now, you’ll get to keep it – no you won’t.
And just for the record, I guess I’m one of the people she’s talking about. I’ve got a lot of free time – because I lost my job thank you very much. You want to quiet me down? Focus on the economy, not healthcare, and get me working again. Sheesh! It’s practically one of those “please stand up” Joe Biden comments to the guy in the wheelchair.
