After watching the President's townhall meetings last week Butch Jackson, local philosopher and semi-news research specialist posed this question to parents at the Hubbard City Cafe, "how do you teach kid's ethics when our President lies like a junkyard dog being questioned by the Fire Department? To hear Obama tell it, old people in AARP, doctors, insurance companies, and people from all walks of life are all for his newly titled Insurance Reform Plan aka Health Care Reform. When you look at the people behind Obama and his teleprompters they are 100% smiling, nodding, and and wildly applauding the only guy I know that makes Bill Clinton look like a straght shooter. He says the only people against him are mobs who watch cable TV."
Butch said he immediately went to the Rasmussen web site to see when the tide had turned to favor Obama's plan, and this what he found:
Saturday, August 15, 2009
Thirty-five percent (35%) of American voters say passage of the health care bill currently working its way through Congress would be better than not passing any health care reform legislation this year. However, a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that most voters (54%) say no health care reform passed by Congress this year would be the better option.
Sixty percent (60%) of Democrats say passing the legislation in Congress would be the best course of action. However, 80% of Republicans take the opposite view. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 23% would like the Congressional reform to pass while 66% would rather the legislators take no action.
Voters who earn less than $20,000 a year are evenly divided but a majority of all other voters would prefer no action. Middle income voters, those who earn from $40,000 to $75,000 a year, are most strongly in favor of taking no action.
Billy Roy Mitchum jumped in with both boots. "Looks like there are a lot of Dems who make less than $20,000. I bet there are so many at zero that it pulls the average way down. These folks want everything to be free like it has been for Obama his entire life."
Billy Roy continued. I would hate to see the government get between people and their doctors. My 80 year old uncle recently went for a physical. All of his tests come back with normal results. Doctor Sammons says, "George, everything looks great. How are you doing mentally and emotionally? Are you at peace with God?"
George, a sometimes practicing Methodist, replies, "God and I are tight. He knows I have poor eyesight, so he's fixed it so when I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, *poof*!, the light goes on. When I'm done, *poof*!, the light goes off."
"Wow, that's incredible," the doctor says.
A little later in the day, the doctor calls George's wife, Ethel, a hard shelled Baptist, he says, "George is doing fine but I had to call you because I'm in awe of his relationship with God. Is it true that he gets up during the night and *poof *!, the light goes on in the bathroom, and when he's done, *poof*! the light goes off?"
"OH MY GOD!" Ethel exclaims.
"He's peeing in the fridge again!!!!".
We don't need Obama's government between, George, Ethel, and Dr. Sammons. They are doing just fine. All they need is for those unemployed Democrats to go to work so their medical cost will come down and the government can get out of their way.
Think about it,
