Watch out for Obama Care during Sotomayor Hearings
Posted Jul 14 2009 11:30pm
Obama is anxious to get his Obama Care through this week. While Sotomayor is demonstrating her inarticulate attempts to weasel through answers and her remarkable lack of ability to orally express her legal reasoning.
So while we are all watching Sotomayor struggle to explain herself (causing that little wrinkle between my eyes to deepen - Thank God I have a dermatologist appointment in a few weeks - but I digress) Barack Obama is behind the scenes like a mad puppeteer trying to get the Obama Care put together.
Ahh, we are smarter than Obama thinks. If Obama can try desperately to ruin multiple aspects of our country then we can redouble our efforts to protect our country at every level.
AP - Obama Wants Senate Health Care Bill This Week
By DAVID ESPO and RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated Press Writers
WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic officials say President Barack Obama has told a key lawmaker involved in drafting health care legislation he wants a bill in the Senate Finance Committee by week's end.
These officials say the president delivered his message Monday to Sen. Max Baucus in a White House meeting attended by administration officials and Democratic lawmakers.
The president's action came as he spent his first work day in the White House since returning from an overseas trip, and sought to give fresh momentum to his drive to remake the nation's health care system.
The officials who spoke did so on condition of anonymity, saying they were not authorized to discuss private meetings.
