President Obama spoke in front of Congress twice this year.
Tonight was about President Obama selling his Government Run health Care plan to the public and to a majority run Democratic party Congress.
This is tonight's transcript. And here is the video:
The best thing I read about the speech came from Althouse. Read this comment by jr565:
I still believe we can replace acrimony with civility. We need to not demagogue our opponents or use scare tactics and spread disinformation. So all you racist, hillbilly tea bagging Nazis better shut the f up.
We need to put aside partisanship and come together and incorporate the best common sense ideas from all sides. So all you republicans, stop being so partisan and simply vote for this even though it has nothing you want and you were denied access to the enactment of the bill. And remember I won (you racist tea bagging Nazis)!And screw you tort reform!
My plan is all about saving money even though the CBO is saying my plan will cost money and even though my ideas don't actually save any money (like preventive care).
I know there’s been a lot of misinformation in this debate. And there’s some folks out there who are, frankly, bearing false witness. But we need reform now and this bill is too important for us to simply do nothing which is what the evil racist Nazi republicans are suggesting. And even though this plan wont actually take effect for 4 years or so.
There is truth in brevity sometimes.
