No Scare Tactics Here!

ABC NEWS: “Obama: Here’s What’s Gonna Happen if Health Care Fails…

“If we don’t pass it, here’s the guarantee….your premiums will go up, your employers are going to load up more costs on you,” he said. “Potentially they’re going to drop your coverage, because they just can’t afford an increase of 25 percent, 30 percent in terms of the costs of providing health care to employees each and every year. “

The president said that the costs of Medicare and Medicaid are on an “unsustainable” trajectory and if there is no action taken to bring them down, “the federal government will go bankrupt.”

“This actually provides us the best chance of starting to bend the cost curve on the government expenditures in Medicare and Medicaid,” Obama said.

That’s what the president apparently told outgoing ABC anchor Charlie Gibson in an upcoming interview. Worth noting is that, less than a week ago, it was President Obama who warned Republicans to “stop trying to frighten the American people” and get out of the way.

Now who’s looking to frighten Americans into supporting a bill that nobody seems to like?

This president is desperate. Between paying off Mary Landrieu, threatening Ben Nelson, attacking Joe Lieberman and now this, it shows that the Democrats may not be as close to sixty votes as the press and president insists. If they were, they would have scheduled a vote already.

    What's another crisis or two? We have apparently survived numerous crises since BO took office, thanks to his brilliance and genius intelligence. Once again, Chicken Little cries that the sky is falling! Everything must be done in a hurry because otherwise the world will end! I don't think my head can take 3 more years of this. He gives me a pain.

    You know what happen with the little boy that cried wolf!
    You know, the government going bankrupt would be better then shoving this health care plan they want down our throats! But that could probably be stopped too if he would stop flying all over the world and vacationing in HI.
    btw- I heard the House is going home until Jan 19th!!!

    exactly.
    imo his only focus is "gotta get something done before the clock runs out at midnight 2009"!!! shameful.

    he just isnt the man for the job and wasnt prepared for any of the wrinkles… ((having gone thru some of these things perhaps in a few years he might be talent for the task he attempted)) seems he expected to speak a thing and everyone must fall in line becuase he won as he likes to put it.

    so far his only actions seem to be that of adding billions to the deficit. spend, spend, spend and diminish the respect America once had around the globe.

    i guess that answers why he is spending millions to keep that birth certificate a secret? to him i guess its worth it… a shame Republican Party, HIllary didnt take that to the max.

    i am sure if Palin was in the mix and the freedom to do as she pleased we would have had some real answers one way or the other by now. no wonder she scares the living daylights out their lightbulbs.
