News flash from Washington, DC---August 8, 2009
What seems like a never ending debate that will never end, Pacific Research Institute President and CEO, Sally Pipes has published a new book entitled “The Top Ten Myths of American Health Care: A Citizen’s Guide”. House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi was asked if she has read the book and her response was “I don’t care about myths, insurance companies are greedy, greedy, greedy and only government in all its’ benevolence can properly attack the problem.” She also stated that all individuals protesting a government run healthcare system were ‘Nazis’ and ‘Astroturf’. Stay tuned for more debate.
The unemployment numbers have come out for the month of July and the figure was better than expected. Unemployment actually dropped from 9.5% to 9.4%. President Obama called these numbers ‘encouraging’ and believes that the worst of the recession may be over. The President intimated that instead of spending 49 trillion dollars over the next decade on government programs we need only spend 48.99 trillion.
Meanwhile, President Obama was detained at the White House for questioning concerning statements he made in 2003 and 2007 concerning a single payer health system. Apparently, President Obama is on tape as having supported a single payer system. If true this would contradict the recent healthcare proposal put forth by the democrats as not having a single payer component and his statements would have to considered ‘fishy’. It is not known what action will be taken for the Presidents’ ‘fishy’ statements. Perhaps taking away Camp David privileges?
