Obama Warns Against Scare Tactics While Using Them

Barack Obama warned that people must be aware of scare tactics that have been used in the past to scuttle attempts at overhauling the US health care system. Obama said we have seen such tactics in the past.

“we know there are those who will try to scuttle” the program no matter what. He said that “because these fear tactics have worked, things have kept getting worse.” Breitbart

This is the same guy who warned that we must do something by year’s end. This is the guy who said we had to act now. We cannot have an expert panel with lengthy discussions because we must do it now. We can’t wait a year longer. He uses scare tactics, just as he did with the stimulus, to push his agenda even as he decries scare tactics.

This comes as Obama was soundly booed by members of the American Medical Association, a group opposed to his plans for health care in this country. The AMA opposes a government run plan and they have a long history of dealing with Medicare to back up their concerns.

Hospitals are also opposed to his proposed cuts in Medicare and Medicaid.

Obama also lacks support for the plan form his own party:

President Barack Obama’s health secretary on Sunday pushed for a new government-run healthcare program, an idea facing skepticism even in his own party, and a senior Senate Democrat flatly said votes are lacking in Congress for the proposal. al-Reuters

Perhaps the opposition can put the brakes on this mess and give the people of this country a chance to take a good hard look at what is being proposed and what alternatives might yield a better result.

If Obama ends up taxing the employer provided health benefits he will have a great deal of opposition and it might end up limiting him to one term.

    Hussein is going to have a really hard time getting doctors to willingly enter and embrace his policy especially as he is not in favor of capping malpractice awards ( He is, after all, a lawyer).

    Hiz speech is another variation of the old, “they will attempt to scare you by saying he doesn’t look like the guys on the dollar bills…..” Yada, yada, yada- he’s a one trick pony and thinks his stuff doesn’t stink- but like most liberals, he will easily decry against something all while doing the same thing he rails against- see: Hypocrisy.
