Obama: I’m a Symbol of ‘America‘s Best Traditions’

EXCERPT

Weisman reports that candidate Obama met in a closed door meeting with House Democrats and he let loose with a “real zinger,” as Weisman put it. He told the rapt audience of House members that his candidacy was the moment “the world is waiting for” — as if the whole world clamored for his presence? He went even further than that proving that he may be losing touch with reality and believing his own surreal campaign rhetoric.

“I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions,” he said.

    Obama’s plan

    Wants to roll back the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans in the country.
    – Why would you want to take money away from the people who are the most responsible for large scale economic growth? You want them to have less money for investments? That’s not going to give the economy a kick start.

    Wants to put our economy on a long term path for economic growth. He says it’s going to be long and hard.
    – That’s an excellent idea. But I’m not that ecstatic about the long term part and it being a long hard struggle. I’d much rather our politicians target short term growth, then once that is achieved, target long term growth. In other words, long term growth is for a good economy. Right now we need short term growth.

    Wants to crack down on health insurance companies to make sure that they pay the claims that were promised.
    – I worked for a company that processed prescription claims for Blue Cross and Blue Shield. As far as I can tell, the insurance company always paid the claims as were promised. The problem usually is that the insured never looked at their policy and has no idea what was promised. Would he rather bankrupt the insurance industry and place constraints on another part of our economy to further stifle it? Further more, how does he plan on making these insurance companies pay these supposed unpaid claims?

    Wants to go after the drug companies to make sure that we have the cheapest available price on drugs.
    – So he is suggesting placing restrictions on yet another large sector of our economy. Free market, free market, free market. Supply and demand, supply and demand, supply and demand. The drug companies spend billions/trillions of dollars on research, design, and fighting frivolous lawsuits. That comes with a price. These same companies send these manufactured goods all over the world, a huge export business that brings outside dollars into the country. If this industry becomes as stifled along with what he plans for the insurance industry, you will see a bigger slump in the economy.

    Wants to make sure everyone gets regular check ups and regular screenings for prevention.
    – Uh, how are you going to make that happen? You are going to make me go to the doctor? My mother doesn’t even try to do that.

    He asks if we are spending billions of dollars in Iraq, why can’t we spend billions of dollars in America to rebuild our roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, and sewer lines.
    – These are totally separate issues. The war has to be funded and the American infrastructure has to be funded. The allocation of these funds are determined largely by the House and Senate. Yes, it is important that our roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, and sewer lines be in good shape. Now that being said, the roads and bridges in my home state are constantly under repair. So much so that I wonder if it’s just because they have nowhere to store the signs. Schools and hospitals? I haven’t heard of any schools falling over lately and the last time I was at a free clinic, the place looked like it was in good shape. I don’t have health insurance, so I have been to a free clinic or two for treatment. People don’t want you to know this, but they do exist. I also go to regular doctors and specialists without having any health insurance and pay the cash price. Not that difficult. And did I miss something else, are our sewer lines exploding all over the streets? I must have missed that.
