Arrogant President Obama Declares Time for Health Care Debate is "Over" in Speech to AFL-CIO - Video 9/7/09

Here is video of a combative and arrogant President Obama today speaking to the AFL-CIO where he declared the time for debating Health Care is "over." "It's time to act."

Obama said in a rather condescending voice, "The debate has been good." But he went on to make his statement that Americans have debated this enough.

Obama then called "lies" concerns by anti-ObamaCare opponents about the impact of Government-run Care on the seriously ill and other matters. He then said opponents have no plan of their own, which is absolutely not true, and he knows it.

I don't think President Obama gets to decide when something has been debated enough. Remember, Obama never wanted this debate. He intended to ram Health Care through in less than two weeks' time prior to the end of July. But the outcry - including from "Blue Dog" Democrats - kept him from doing so. Obama's speech today makes it clear he is wounded and angry, and he is going to try and ram something through Congress. His combative tone appears to signal how the Democrats will return from their month of listening to Americans. I don't think the Democrats and the President intend to heed what they have heard.

I had the same take on that speech as you did. It was FULL of lies.

The glowing rhetoric could not mask the contempt he has for ordinary Americans.

This is a lot more than the 2.2 trillion. they claim was spent on health care last year.This is just federal employees. There is enough money there to pay for the whole country goin to insurance companies, for god sake, use your heads. This is 2007, Alabama = 388,843,408 Alaska = 1,940,849 Arizona = 325,865,922 Arkansas = 139,419,464 California = 1,766,180,808 colorado = 380,929,195 Delaware = 56,576,853 Florida 1,162,244,825 Georgia = 644,079,786 Hawaii = 292,725,043 GOD TELL ME WHEN I GET TO 2.2 TRILLION !!!!!! if u do not believe look here at the consolidated funds reports for each state this is the census. http://harvester.census.gov/cffr/ WAKE UP AMERICANS HURRY!!!!
