I think just about everything written in the recent email blast from the Obama’s “Organizing for America” is fucking lie.

Carin —

House Republicans are moving forward to repeal all provisions of health reform, with a final vote scheduled for next week.

Well, that’s not a lie. It better not be.

If they get their way, insurance companies will once again have the right to deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, drop or limit coverage if you become sick, and charge women higher premiums than men. Seniors will lose critical prescription drug savings and free preventive care under Medicare.

You will have CHOICE. You can CHOOSE what type of coverage you want. What you want covered. There are ways to improve healthcare. Obamacare ain’t it.

It’s sad but not surprising.

The motivations here have little to do with good policy. Repeal is just the first agenda item of a new Republican majority that is much more interested in appeasing their right-wing base and looking out for special interests than working together to create jobs and grow the economy.

Wrong wrong wrong. Repeal is the first item of the agenda of the Republican majority that better have gotten it into their heads that the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ISN’T OUR DADDY. The founding fathers never imagined what pussies we would have become, expecting the government to feed, cloth, shelter, and heal us.

Behind the scenes, insurance-industry lobbyists are working overtime with Republicans to take us back to the days when their clients were able to do whatever they wanted.

But this movement is different. We don’t take our cues from special interests or lobbyists, and we never will. We don’t take their money either, relying solely on support from folks like you — and it only makes us stronger.

YOU LIE. The Obama administration has former lobbyiests working for them. They met with lobbyiest at the Starbucks to keep them off of the White House records. You take their money, you hire them.

Right now, Organizing for America is putting together a team of dedicated organizers and volunteers to defend our progress, stop repeal, and expose the Republican plan for what it really is.

You left out the word grassroots. I get the biggest kick out of their abuse of that word.

Please donate $3 or more to help protect our progress — and stop the repeal of health insurance reform.

More money, more money, more money.

We fought to pass the Affordable Care Act because it was the right thing to do. we’re socialists


Its provisions are fair, reduce the deficit by more than $230 billion over the next 10 years, cut costs, and protect all Americans from the worst insurance industry abuses. The law is already making a difference in people’s lives.

Every sentence right there is flat out wrong. It will not reduce the deficit, it doesn’t cut costs, the government will now decide what abuse we face at the hands of our health care, and the law hasn’t change a singe thing yet.

Among other provisions, the Affordable Care Act:

— Prevents insurers from raising premiums by double digits with no recourse or accountability;
— Requires insurers to spend 80 to 85 percent of premium dollars on health care, not CEO bonuses — and if they don’t, they have to provide you a rebate;
— Frees families from the fear of losing their insurance, or having it capped unexpectedly, after an injury or illness; and
— Prohibits insurance companies from discriminating against pregnant women or denying coverage to children born with disabilities.

Our premiums have already gone up 30% since it passed. I don’t believe i have recourse, and I’ve been given no accountability. Also, insurers have to spend 80-85% of the premium dollars on health care, unless of course your are a FOO (Friend of Obama) and you get a waiver. Unions need only apply.

The Republican alternative at this point consists of a two-page addendum to the two-page repeal bill. It’s a plan to make a plan to have a plan.

Sound like a better plan to me already!

Even without a coherent proposal, they won’t have trouble raising money to drum up support for repeal. Republicans’ close relationship with entrenched interests has benefited them in campaigns that did not begin — and will not end — with health reform.

Unlike the Democrats grassroots, organic interests. @@

But we’re fighting back with everything we’ve got — building a large-scale, grassroots effort to stop this repeal and protect our progress. Your support will fund the organizing that generates calls to Congress, neighborhood canvasses, and letters in our local papers.


Together, we’ll make sure our message is heard and understood: We stand by health reform and will not tolerate attempts to put insurance companies back in charge.

You will not tolerate? What are you going to do? Is that a threat?

Donate $3 or more to fight repeal and protect our progress:


Yea, I’ll get right on that.
