Bait and Switch

Were you surprised by the studies last year, concluding that candidate Obama’s health plan would insure only one-half of the uninsured? How about the Congressional Budget Office’s finding that the $1 trillion Kennedy health plan will insure only one-third of the uninsured?

    Agree totally. This is bait and switch. Clearly the uninsured were an excuse to nationalize the health care system. Now they are being left out of the mix.

  2. Tom H. says:

    Am I surprised? No. I’m not surprised. Why would anybody be surprised.

  3. Deb says:

    I enjoyed your conversation on Mark Levin today. I signed the petition! I’d love to see a counter to show how many people have signed it to date!

  4. John Goodman says:

    Good idea, Deb. Let me see what I can do. We are close to 240,000 right now.

  5. Chris says:

    How many signatures would be needed on the petition in order make a difference?

    No, I’m not surprised either; not at all.

  6. John Goodman says:

    We are at 275,000 right now and that makes a difference, but we would like to hit one million.
