Health Care Opponents Beware – Obama Thugs May Come a Knockin’

jack_booted_thugsI found this interesting information on the website.  It outlines a White House blog post titled “Facts are Stubborn Things.”    Here is the copy from the blog entry:

Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, “facts are stubborn things.”

Scary chain emails and videos are starting to percolate on the Internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to “uncover” the truth about the President’s health insurance reform positions.

In this video, Linda Douglass, the communications director for the White House’s Health Reform Office, addresses one example that makes it look like the President intends to “eliminate” private coverage, when the reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

For the record, the President has consistently said that if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them.  He has even proposed eight consumer protections relating specifically to the health insurance industry.

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.  These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation.  Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to

If you think I am just being my crazy self, feel free to check out the links above.  I guess I’ll be on the list.  Looking forward to the knock on my door from the Obama Gestapo to take me away to the soon to be created government health care reeducation camps. 

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Health Care Legislation: The Natives Are Restless

I knew the break for congress would be a little testy – for them.  We are starting to see video from town hall meetings where average citizens are standing up and making their voices heard. 

Russ Carnahan from St.  Louis had his turn also:

Same way with Steve Kagen from Wisconsin:

I could go on and on posting video, but the message is the same. 

How does the DNC (Democratic National Committee) respond?  In typical fashion.  See the new ad below:

Let me get this straight…it’s a first amendment right for protesters on the left to disagree with a Republican president, but it’s civil disobedience and mob mentality for common sense citizens (from both sides of the aisle) that are fed up with the congressional malpractice.  Hmmm.  Just wanted to make sure I had things correct.

Note to all members of Congress, it’s not going to be a fun break.  The best thing you can do is hide in your bunker and count the days until you get to go back to Washington.  Maybe you won’t hear “Read the Bill, Read the Bill, Read the Bill,” in your sleep.  I can only hope you will.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
