He scolded dissenters for “bickering” and “playing games’ and demanded that his government-run healthcare plan be passed immediately.
He demonized those who honestly oppose his plan, saying they are using “scare tactics” and even threatened to “call out” anyone who dared to “misrepresent” what is in his plan.
And he once again claimed the moral high ground, emotionally invoking the words of the late Ted Kennedy in saying this is a “moral issue” involving nothing less than “social justice.”
But everything the Obama did and said last night was really about one thing — using the “bully pulpit” of the presidency to ram ObamaCare down the throats of the American people.
The next 24 hours crucial.
The Obama’s goal is to move public opinion and convince members of Congress that there is public support for his government-run plan. In fact, there is no such support.
According to a just-released Associated Press poll, 52% of American adults disapprove – and 43% strongly disapprove – of Obama’s handling of healthcare. Only 42% of Americans now approve, and those numbers are falling.
Within minutes of the speech’s conclusion, Obama’s team had emailed millions of supporters asking them to pressure Congress as never before. We must respond… now!
We simply must counter Obama and his socialist allies in their efforts to cloak the attempted government takeover of healthcare in a patriotic (and even religious!) mandate.
Please call your two Senators and your Representative today and tell them you OPPOSE the government-run plan. Tell them to abandon the 1,000-plus page monstrosity of a bill and start over with a free market approach that respects the unborn and preserves our liberties!
Again, the next few hours are absolutely crucial. What Obama is attempting is a last-ditch effort to convince legislators that there is public support for his plan.
This is high-stakes politics, and Obama is using the rhetoric of a religious mandate to push his socialistic agenda through. If there was ever a time to make your voice heard, this is it!
