Liveblogging the President’s Healthcare Speech
We’ll be using the comments section of this post to liveblog the president’s speech to Congress on healthcare. Based on the information currently provided it looks like we’re in for a guilt campaign that attempts to change the aesthetics of the debate without doing much to modify the substance. People are suffering. We must work together. The basic outline of the Democrats’ plan is the only solution, and any attempt to suggest otherwise is merely divisive greed.
When I called in to his show, at the turn of the hour, Matt Allen quoted this excerpt from the speech:
Everyone in this room knows what will happen if we do nothing. Our deficit will grow. More families will go bankrupt. More businesses will close. More Americans will lose their coverage when they are sick and need it most. And more will die as a result. We know these things to be true.
As I told Matt, this is merely another example of the President striving the conquer the Politics of Fear with the Politics of Hope.
