Obama has lost "Single Payer"

Obama has lost "Single Payer"
Obama is too weak to be President.

He’ll be a one term president if he doesn’t “ pull up his pants.”

He’s got a slick way of talking and walking but that’s about all.

What he says, he says like a professor, with great knowledge but without any force or consequence except in the debating arena.

He hasn’t got the steel to take on the heavyweights in Health or The Middle East.

Next thing you know he’ll be handing over The West Bank to Israel for a slave-labour colony and attacking Iran having spent his first year talking about settlements.

Obama indicated this weekend that he is not strong enough to force through a single payer health insurance plan.

The Health insurance industry has forced him to back down because they knew he was weak when he cut a secret deal with them.

The Huffington Post has obtained a memo that shows the White House cut a secret deal with PhRMA, to oppose any congressional efforts to use the government’s leverage to bargain for lower drug prices or import drugs from Canada and also agreed not to pursue Medicare rebates or shift some drugs from Medicare Part B to Medicare Part D, which would cost Big Pharma billions in reduced reimbursements.

In exchange, PhRMA, the Pharmaceutical Researchers and Manufacturers Association, the lobbying association for the drug companies, agreed to cut $80 billion in projected costs to taxpayers and senior citizens over ten years.
