Majority of American want Healthcare reform – Barack Obama

Majority of American want Healthcare reform – Congress/Senate Democrats


"I want to cover everybody. Now, the truth is that unless you have a -- what's called a single-payer system, in which everybody's automatically covered, then you're probably not going to reach every single individual, because there's always going to be somebody out there who thinks they're indestructible and doesn't want to get health care, doesn't bother getting health care, and then, unfortunately, when they get hit by a bus, end up in the emergency room and the rest of us have to pay for it.

But that's not the overwhelming majority of Americans. The overwhelming majority of Americans want health care, but millions of them can't afford it." - Barack Obama, 7/22/09

July 22-26, 2009 Pew Research poll asked:

"As of right now, do you generally favor or generally oppose the health care proposals being discussed in Congress?"

38% Generally favor
44% Generally oppose
18% unsure

The poll numbers, tea party protests and town hall meetings have overwhelmingly opposed healthcare reform of any kind. The Democrats in the House and Senate have gone it alone in forcing the issue and the President to this day is still proclaiming that the “overwhelming majority” of Americans want it. The proof that Democrats have bought out the Pharmaceutical Industry, AARP as well as the AMA is on record. Multiple members of Congress and the Senate have taken hundreds of millions to get their votes to pass it.

The reason is there is no support for this forced takeover of Americans freedom and the only thing that is “overwhelming” is the growth of the Federal Government.

Per the Weekly Standard – “the Reid bill declares on page 1020 that the Independent Medicare Advisory Board cannot be repealed by future Congresses:

There's one provision that I found particularly troubling and it's under section c, titled "limitations on changes to this subsection." and I quote -- "it shall not be in order in the senate or the house of representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment, or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection."

this is not legislation. It's not law. This is a rule change. It's a pretty big deal. We will be passing a new law and at the same time creating a senate rule that makes it out of order to amend or even repeal the law.

With all of this “Overwhelming Support of the American People” then why is it that the bill on record has a provision in it that prevents future Congress cannot repeal any part of the bill?

If the Democrats and the President are so confident of the “overwhelming” support why would this provision be necessary?
