Obama’s Healthcare Hypocrisy
March 8th, 2010, in Glenside, PA, President Barak Obama gave a rambling speech demonizing both those for and against his Healthcare Reform Bill. His hope is to garner a little public support for his very unpopular bill. Obama criticizes the Republicans claiming that they had 10 years and did nothing; clearly forgetting about the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003.
Republicans aside, the President spews most of his venom at the Insurance industry, claiming that Obamacare will;
“[E]liminate wasted taxpayer subsidies that go to insurance and pharmaceutical companies. They are getting billions of dollars a year from the government, from taxpayers, when they are making a big profit.”
Interestingly, the insurance industry, which pays lobbyists millions of dollars to protect and promote its image, never defends itself from the White House attacks. That is because they know that the President’s spoken word does not match what is written the bill for them. Although he rails against the insurance industry in public, the truth is;
- Visitor Logs reveal that insurance executives visited the White House frequently to negotiate this bill with the President.
- Obama’s Healthcare Reform act mandates 30 million new customers for the insurance companies.
- The bill contains $436 Billion in subsidies for the insurance industry.
Those that the President claims are the enemy of the people are actually in bed with him. Presidential hypocrisy at its finest.
