ZOMG- AP outs TOTUS ‘misstatements’ on the Health Care Bill…

AP responds to TOTUS News Conference with actual facts and intelligent cogent analysis….maybe it’s the eclipse..hurry read it before it comes down!!!

  • By Calvin Woodward and Jim Kuhnhenn, Associated Press Writers
  • WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s assertion Wednesday that government will stay out of health care decisions in an overhauled system is hard to square with the proposals coming out of Congress and with his own rhetoric.

Even now, nearly half the costs of health care in the U.S. are paid for by government at all levels. Federal authority would only grow under any proposal in play.

A look at some of Obama’s claims in his prime-time news conference:

OBAMA: “We already have rough agreement” on some aspects of what a health care overhaul should involve, and one is: “It will keep government out of health care decisions, giving you the option to keep your insurance if you’re happy with it.”

THE FACTS: In House legislation, a commission appointed by the government would determine what is and isn’t covered by insurance plans offered in a new purchasing pool, including a plan sponsored by the government. The bill also holds out the possibility that, over time, those standards could be imposed on all private insurance plans, not just the ones in the pool.

Indeed, Obama went on to lay out other principles of reform that plainly show the government making key decisions in health care. He said insurance companies would be barred from dropping coverage when someone gets too sick, limits would be set on out-of-pocket expenses, and preventive care such as checkups and mammograms would be covered.

It’s true that people would not be forced to give up a private plan and go with a public one. The question is whether all of those private plans would still be in place if the government entered the marketplace in a bigger way.

He addressed some of the nuances under questioning. “Can I guarantee that there are going to be no changes in the health care delivery system?” he said. “No. The whole point of this is to try to encourage changes that work for the American people and make them healthier.”

He acknowledged then that the “government already is making some of these decisions.”

Sen Jon Kyl R-AZ – ‘What will the Obama Health Care Plan mean for you?”

Courtesy of Senator Kyl

President Obama wants Congress to pass a sweeping new Washington-run health care system that would jeopardize the care most Americans already have. Such a system would likely lead to the collapse of private insurance and replace it with an enormous Washington bureaucracy that would ration the health care of all Americans.”

-Senate Republican Whip Jon Kyl examines what the Obama plan for a government-run health care system would means for anyone already insured, especially seniors. Remarks made on June 16, 2009.

Update: Rush on the old and new media – Dallas 7/23 – Sen Cornyn office: ‘How a Local Rally For Obama’s Health Care Proposal Turned Into a Rally Against It’…Tucson 7/17 Rep Giffords Tea Party 400+…

It’s working, although the jackaxxex are calling we CONSTITUENTS spam! What nerve! FRONT PAGE of POLITICO:

An anti-health care reform Web site has published the names of moderate Democratic chiefs of staff in the House — spawning a Spam tsunami inundating inboxes with more than 500 emails since Wednesday, according to aides.

Energized by Nancy Pelosi’s claim she had the votes to pass health care reform,blogger “just a conservative girl” penned a “Dear Fellow Patriot” letter to readers asking them if they could “please [be] joining us in emailing the Chiefs of Staff of the following moderate to conservative Democrats?”

She then published the names and emails of 55.

“I’ve been dealing with these since yesterday… it’s clogging my inbox,” said one chief of staff, less peeved than amused.

The emails range from ALLCAPS:

PLEASE DO NOT VOTE FOR THIS DISASTROUS “HEALTHCARE REFORM” BILL.
PLEASE DO NOT DESTROY THE VERY FABRIC OF THIS COUNTRY.
PLEASE DO NOT BE MANIPULATED INTO SELLING ITS CITIZENS OUT FOR A SOCIALIST AGENDA.
PLEASE DO NOT FORCE AMERICANS TO BECOME ENSLAVED AND IMPOVERISHED
PLEASE- PLEASE PLEASE
LISTEN TO THE CITIZENS WHO WORK TO PAY YOUR SALARY. NOT THE ONES WHO REFUSE TO WORK.

To the partisan:

PS – Ask your congressperson to remind the President that the financial problems we have are not just those of the former President. I seem to recall that for the 2 years prior to the current President, we had a democratic majority in both house of congress.

To the politely persistent:

Being the Chief of Staff for a Congressional Representative is a thankless job. In this position, you clearly have the ability to lean on your Representative to vote in-line with what the American people need and want.

RightWingCzar sums up the presser for us:

Update DallasObserver Via Instapundit: Sheer Awesomeness.

Local MoveOn.org members had penciled in on today’s schedule a protest in front of Senator John Cornyn’s Spring Valley Road office, during which they had hoped to pressure the senator to support President Barack Obama’s public health care legislation. But when Paula Anderson, a MoveOn.org member and spokeswoman, showed up at 11:30 a.m., she found another contingent had beat her to the proverbial punch: A large number of Dallas Tea Party members were already set up, voicing their opposition to the proposal.

Anderson was stunned: “We really did not expect them to show up.” She estimated the crowd at about 130. “From our perspective we took names of everyone there, and we had about 30 people,” she told Unfair Park. “And I would assume they maybe had 100.” As it turned out, according to Jessica Sandlin, Cornyn’s Texas press secretary, Tea Party-hearties also showed up to health-care legislation rallies in Austin and in San Antonio; after the jump, you’ll find a statement from the senator concerning the day’s events.

Meanwhile, the person who organized the opposition in Dallas, one Q Coleman, a Tea Party member, estimated the crowd swelled to at least 200. “The vast majority of people here didn’t want this,” Coleman said. “We beat them 10 to 1. … We all agree that health care needs reform. We’re just opposed to the government taking it over.” (Sandlin writes in an e-mail to Unfair Park that “I think there were about 200 people in attendance — 20 of whom were affiliated with Moveon.”)…

Please try to attend a rally over the August recess …TeaPartyPatriots and MM have resources posted…

It is best if you email the Congressional members that are in your state and/or in your specific district.  In the email ask the Chief of Staff to certify that their Member will NOT vote for the Health Care bill.  You can your state the reasons why this bill is not a good bill for Americans.

Be sure to let the Chief of Staff know who you are in your community whether you are a stay at home mom, a small business owner, or a community leader and the impact of the government take over of our health care to your organization (loss of jobs, increased taxes, etc.).

Thank you so much for helping us further the causes of fiscal responsibility, limited government, and free markets. We promise we will slow down on the amount of emails to you once Congress is in recess.

Tier 1: Conservative to Moderate Democrats who are on Energy and Commerce in the House

If  Energy and Commerce does not vote the bill out of Committee, then it will force Speaker Pelosi to bring the bill to the floor of the House without the Committee’s approval.  Politically, this does not look good for Speaker Pelosi because she will be ignoring the will of her committees.Please remember to record the number of emails, faxes, and calls you are making.

Dear Fellow Patriot,

The calls you have been making this week are having an impact.  Unfortunately, it seems that our voices are simply not quite loud enough.  Speaker Pelosi has said that she has the votes to move the Health Care bill.  So, we have to step it up a little bit more.  Will you please join us in emailing the Chiefs of Staff of the following moderate to conservative Democrats?
