White House lies

“I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that’s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that’s what I’d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.”
– Barack Obama

“You know the people who always try to SCARE people whenever you try to bring them health-insurance reform are at it again. And they’re taking sentences and phrases out of context, and they’re cobbling them together to leave a VERY false impression.”
– Linda Douglass, Communications Director for the White House Office of Health Reform

Will someone please tell these cretins that it’s an uncut video of Obama himself talking. Of course, if you’re dumb enough to buy the CERTIFICATION/CERTIFICATE sleight of hand, perhaps you’re dumb enough to believe that an unedited video of an Obama statement about his beliefs regarding health insurance is an out-of-context, cobbled-together hatchet job.
