Obama Seeks To Cover His True Intentions Regarding Health Care

I honestly don't know what is more infuriating. The fact that Obama is lying about how he wants this health care package to play out, or the fact that so many people in Old Media are willing to do or say anything to make him sound legit.

Mike Allen at the Politico has this story about Obama's response to a video that clearly shows him saying that he will eliminate private health insurance:

The White House response features Linda Douglass, formerly an ABC News correspondent and now a White House official, showing Drudge's homepage on the screen of her office computer.


The video begins: "Hi. I’m Linda Douglass. I’m the communications director for the White House Office of Health Reform, and one of my jobs is to keep track of all the disinformation that’s out there about health-insurance reform. And there are a lot of very deceiving headlines out there right now, such as this one — take a look at this one. This one says, 'Uncovered Video: Obama Explains How His Health Care Plan Will Eliminate PRIVATE Insurance.'"

Now, Linda never once says that anything in the uncovered video was untrue or made up. She can't. Because in that video, Barack Obama said everything by himself. You can access that video on-line here:

And you will see and hear Barack Obama speak the following words:

"I don't think we're going to be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately. There’s going to be, potentially, some transition process: I can envision a decade out, or 15 years out, or 20 years out."

Note that Obama used the words: "I don't think we're going to be able to eliminate ..." Clearly, one of Obama's goals is to completely get rid of private coverage through employers. Otherwise, there was absolutely no need whatsoever for him to say what he said.

Although he claims people will be able to keep priavate coverage, he gives no explanation whatsoever as to how private insurance companies are going to be able to compete against the taxpayer-subsidized "public option."

Obama is playing a game of smoke and mirrors here. It is the White House putting out misinformation about the health care bill, not the people investigating it. We need to get as much information as possible out to the public about what is in this disastrous health care takeover bill and make sure that it dies the death it deserves.
