Linda Douglass, the Communications Director for the White House Office of Health Reform is defending Barack Obama’s previous statements about health care, and telling America that what we heard from him, is not what we heard. Matt Drudge at the Drudge Report linked the video below and now, the White House targets Drudge, and as you will see, Douglass targets Americans.
She says the following video is taken out of context and does not mean what Barack Obama actually says. Douglass says the clips in the video are “cherry-picked.” Douglass shows a clip that she claims “they” (anyone in opposition) will not show you. That clip is another of Obama saying if you want to keep your current health care, you can.
Now, if you know what is in the health care bill, you know that is not true. We can keep our current health care if we want to, as long as we work for that same employer – never changing jobs, and as long as our employer continues to offer health care to us. If either is no longer the case, you can never again go back to private insurance. The government will have you in their greedy clutches forever.
I logged on to the White House website to provide a link to Douglass’ video, Facts are “Stubborn Things.” There are no facts in the Douglass video – only deceptions. I am loathe to log-on to any government site now, since reading the “Warning” on the Cash for Clunkers website. If you have not read that revelation, you should.
The video below shows President Obama discussing health care on several occasions. Douglass says these statements are out-of-context. As you can clearly see, there is no way they can be out of context. By the way, if you are writing or reading on the web about the health care plan, Douglass characterizes you as someone who “has a lot of time on your hands.” Never has a White House been so disrespectful of the American people.
