Once More With Feeling

He just can't leave the insurance companies alone, can he. Dig this quote:

"Now is the time to make a decision about how to finally reform health care so that it works, not just for the insurance companies, but for America's families and businesses."

You wouldn't know from that comment that 85 percent of Americans have health insurance and something like 90 percent of those 85 percent are satisfied with their current health insurance. Who is the current system not working for? What other industry has satisfaction rates like that? Certainly the White House polling numbers are nowhere near that.

As for insurance companies, they have one of the worst profit rates in the American economy. Why does Obama think they are making so much money? Does he know anything about this subject? If so, why are his statements almost always incorrect when he discusses this subject? Does he care about the real facts?

Every day there are more and more inane quotes from the President revealing how out of touch this White House is with the real issues of our time. Has the President noticed the unemployed or the tripling of the deficit since he took office? When he is going to get off the health care kick and begin to notice the real problems of the American economy.

The only consolation from the rhetoric coming out of this White House is that voters will have a chance, finally, in November to have their say. Voters tried to get their point across in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts, but the President, so far, isn't listening. Can't wait for November!
