The goal of government run healthcare has not changed for the Democrats and their leader, President Obama. Do not fall for the nonsense that they are dropping the "public option". They will do and say anything necessary to achieve their ultimate objective, which is, in fact, government run healthcare. If they must lie to accomplish their purpose, so be it. That never stopped them before.
Read from "Joshua Pundit:
Obama Shifts Healthcare Strategy? Don't Bet On it
"There's a great deal of talk in the "dinosaur media and other parts of the ozone about how President Zero has shifted strategy on Obamacare, has moderated his position and is no longer pushing for a government run 'public option'.
Don't believe it for a second.
What he's actually doing is publicly appearing to distance himself from the Leftist hardliners, so he can appear moderate and presidential..especially if Obamacare goes down the tubes into defeat.
Privately,behind the scenes he has Emanuel, Axelrod and the rest of his team pushing Obamacare with the so-called public option as hard as they can.
This is the same flim flam Obama is running on the CIA witch hunts. He's posing publicly as the concerned president who really never wanted things to go this way, but that darned attorney general of his, Eric Holder, feels duty bound to pursue this...as if Holder doesn't clear it with the White House directly every time he goes to the bathroom, let alone appoints a special prosecutor.
Kabuki has it's charm, but not in politics. And especially not with such awful bad actors.
Keep the pressure up and keep leaning on your congressmen."
