White House urges Dems to go on offense on healthcare reform
The Hill ^ | 06/29/12 04:54 PM ET | Justin Sink

Posted on 07/02/2012 5:22:59 AM PDT by Texas Fossil

The White House is encouraging congressional Democrats to go on the offensive after the Supreme Court upheld the president's signature healthcare legislation Thursday, urging members on the campaign trail to "illustrate how the President and Democrats in Congress are standing up for the middle class."

-snip

Plouffe argues. "The President refuses to settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by."

Total personal wealth decreased by 40% and this is their response.

Now they ask for willful suspension of all dis-belief.

Pure Orwellian Doublespeak.

“The President refuses to settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by.”

Sounds like America under Obamanomics?

Pray for America

many of obama’s congress critter shills aren’t even going to show their yellow hides at the democrat national nominating convention, which will be one big obama/obamacare lovefest

speaking of “standing up for the middle class”

As I have said before, I don’t understand why the Romney campaign doesn’t point out that the Obama voters who are pushing for “free” healthcare will actually be the “free Loaders” paying the “penalty”. Once they figure that out, Obamacare is over.

Well, everyone in the White House got raises.

Maybe since O can't settle, he could penalty-tax (Supreme court says penalty taxing is legal) people who refuse to: study for a good education, get off their butt and work, stay off drugs that fry their brains.... just like they will penalty-tax people who refuse to buy Obama Care, because that is the major reason why there are Americans barely able to get by. Then maybe we could penulty-tax the president and congress for stifling the economy so that now even people who prepared for jobs, can't find them.

McCaskill has been running & ducking since Thursday already - just one example of what will be happening until November.

The GOP needs to get aggressive with an ad blitz and explain why government-dictated health care and expanded taxing authority are lethal to economic freedom.

Their window of opportunity to run against 0bamacare is not going to stay open long. So far, all I’ve seen is taxpayer-paid, pro-Obamacare propaganda. Currently, Americans still reject 0bamacare, but if the regime continues to dominate the airwaves on it, that will change.

That is exactly the strategy, tell the lie over and over with complete dedication to the belief.

Patton the general had a unique saying about making the opposition believing in something strong enough.

but if the regime continues to dominate the airwaves

It is time for us to openly mock the MSM. They are still carrying the water for this fraud. We must extract a price from them for their treason. The GOPe will not do it.

""The President refuses to settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by."

Huh? "Refuses"? That's been exactly the predictable result of Obamanomics!

Since the voters voted for "Change" in 2006 and 2008 by electing Pelosi, Reid and Obama, the very rich have become much richer, the merely well-to-do have done OK and "Holder's people" have gotten slammed. (Hopefully some will wake up before November, but I'm not holding my breath.)

Agree with you 100%.

Let the dems push support of the biggest tax in history right before a do or die election. Get one of them tingles up my leg that the congresscritter-dems will run away from anything to do with the T-word like a possum does an axe handle.

McCackle said she would skip the Donk convention to spend time with the folks in Missouri.

Where are you, Claire ?
I'd like to tell you what I think...

These white house societal-deteriorators truly have no shame. For the good of this country I do hope most people aren’t ignorant enought to listen to their constant illogical, caustic, anti-Free-America drivel.

I wonder of the DC power outage has anything to do with the upholding of Obamacare by the Supreme Court? I hate subtle messages, for they might be missed.

They will keep sticking to their talking points. We really need to keep hammering this information at them. Eventually their argument will be shown for the lie that it is (and, of course, they will keep sticking to it!).

Thanks for the graph. My, my, my. And Obozo has the audacity to court the Hispanic vote. -66% (Incredible) And Blacks -53% (from an already terrible number)

There is no illusion of what “change” is about.

My daughter lives in Northern VA. She just got power restored at 3:00 AM this morning.

The storm damage was sobering.

Of course it must have been for Obozo too, he went to Camp David. hee hee hee

Read my lips was a mantra in the 1992 elections against GHWB. No taxes of any kind should be the mantra in 2012 against Obama.
