President Obama doesn’t get it
“Now is the time to act,” President Obama said in regard to health care reform. “We have talked this issue to death. … The time for talk is winding down. The time for bickering is past.”
Mr. President, a majority of Americans do not agree with your proposed health care reforms and you heard the voice of that majority during the town hall meetings held this past summer. The American people are not required to shut up and go along with your proposals if they think they are not good for the country. As your predecessor learned, sometimes a President can feel very strongly about this or that health care reform or initiative and still be told “No!” by the American public and their representatives.
