American Patriots: It is Time to Stand Up for Healthcare, America and President Obama! Don't Allow Republican Naysayers to Stop Healthcare Reform!

It is time for the American Public to stand up and support Healthcare Reform. Health Care problems will not go away if the current policies remain status quo. The 46M uninsured and countless under-insured Americans will not magically disappear. How many of you know if you will be covered if a disastrous costly emergency occurs tomorrow? How many of you know whether your employer will discontinue your coverage or increase your costs or whether you will be covered at all if you become unemployed?

The healthcare bill the President is recommending will cover the majority of all Americans. It will also reduce two thirds of many of the current costs by improving/automating many of the current broken processes. The other third will be covered by taxing only those with annual incomes of +$250,000.00.

The Republican Party, the Party of NO, had 8 years to create a viable plan and instead they did nothing...nothing but let the Pharmaceuticals and Insurance Companies receive outrageous profits. It has become abundantly clear that for the Republicans, the Healthcare Debate is Not About Healthcare at all. In reality, it is the Republican/Conservative Base Taking a Stand Against Obama and Minorities!

Republican Dick Armey was on Meet the Press this morning. He is the head of "Freedom Works", one of the groups providing the Healthcare Deathers, Birthers and the Teabaggers their talking points. Armey was a Congressman from Texas until 2003 and the Republican House Minority Leader. He is a master of dirty tricks and was the architect of the "Republican Revolution" of the 1990s.

Now, Armey and many Republicans have developed a new strategy, a new "Dirty Trick." Their strategy is to LIE to the American Public and SCARE them to death. They are instilling Fear and Anger, NOT ABOUT THE ISSUES, BUT ON PURE LIES. THESE LIES ABOUT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION include:
1. Planning Death Panels for the elderly in the Healthcare bill and is socializing medicine.
2. Obama is the Evil Black Muslim Messiah, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, non-citizen or the Joker from Batman attempting to "steal their country" and turning it into some Socialist Compound.
3. Detention Camps are being built to imprison "Real Americans"

The SAD thing is, some gullible and naive Americans are believing their LIES. They are believing their LIES and showing up at the Town Meetings.

Armey is partners with Beck, Limbaugh, Malkin in delivering these LIES to the Deathers, Teabaggers and Birthers. They are deliberately instigating this madness to energize their base to:
1. Disrupt and shut down the August 2009 Town Hall congressional meetings on health care reform, threatening Congressmen with violence. Goal: No Reform At All!
2. Win back as many Republican seats as possible in the 2010 elections.
3. Win back the Whitehouse in 2012.

It doesn't matter to Armey or the Right Wing pundits that their agenda is based on LIES.

It is time for ALL Patriotic Americans to stand up against right wing zealots like Armey, Limbaugh, Beck, Malkin and Hannity. Stand up for America! Stand up for our President! Stand up for Universal Healthcare Reform!

Background on Dick Armey: a policy advisor at DLA Piper Law Firm in DC that received $1.2million from the Pharmaceutical industry; counsel to Bristol-Myers, Squibb, and private healthcare providers Metropolitan Health Networks and the American Council of Healthcare Providers.
Several former female economics students said he sexually harrassed them — harassment allegedly so severe that at least one student transferred to another school. He would later divorce his wife and marry one of his students.
Partnered with Cheney in saying about Iraq: "They're going to welcome us. It'll be like the American army going through the streets of Paris. They're sitting there ready to form a new government. The people will be so happy with their freedoms that we'll probably back ourselves out of there within a month or two."

A runaway deficit may soon test Obama’s luck

Some excerpts :

Felix the Cat, the wonderful, wonderful cat! Whenever he gets in a fix, he reaches into his bag of tricks!

President Barack Obama reminds me of Felix the Cat. One of the best-loved cartoon characters of the 1920s, Felix was not only black. He was also very, very lucky. And that pretty much sums up the 44th president of the US as he takes a well-earned summer break after just over six months in the world’s biggest and toughest job.

His stimulus bill has clearly made a significant contribution to stabilising the US economy since its passage in February. His cap-and-trade bill to reduce carbon dioxide emissions passed the House of Representatives in June. He has set in motion significant overhauls of financial regulation and healthcare. Considering the magnitude of the economic crisis he inherited, his popularity is holding up well. His current 56 per cent approval rating is significantly better than Bill Clinton’s (44 per cent) at the same stage in his first term and about the same as George W. Bush’s.

Consider the evidence that the economy has passed the nadir of the “great recession”. Second-quarter gross domestic product declined by only 1 per cent, compared with a drop of 6.4 per cent in the first quarter. House prices have stopped falling and in some cities are rising; sales of new single-family homes jumped 11 per cent from May to June. Credit spreads have narrowed significantly and the big banks are recovering, some even making enough money to pay back Tarp bail-out funds. The S&P 500 index is up nearly 48 per cent from its low in early March. Best of all, the economy lost fewer jobs in July than most pundits were expecting. Non-farm payrolls declined by just 247,000, half the number that were disappearing each month in the spring. The unemployment rate has actually declined slightly to 9.4 per cent.

Credit where it’s due: although the gold medal for staving off depression goes to Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve chairman, and the silver medal to China’s leaders for their even more impressive stimulus, the president deserves at least bronze. According to Moody’s, the ratings agency, the stimulus package has saved more than 500,000 jobs. Without the jump in government spending, GDP would still be in a nosedive.
