Latest wingnut email, and I want to reply all and fix. But snopes and my google fu is failing me.
I know there is a part of either the senate or congressional bills that make the politicians have to have the same health care plan as in the bill.
Below is the email.
Yes, I realize it's typical propaganda and I defuse some of the lies and the extreme amount of CAPS and exclamation points. And yes, it's feels like a Glenn Beckish email style. But I'm stretched today and as they say in the South: "I need some hep." Normally, I reply defusing some of the lies with links from CNN or Huffpost (not fox or kos because then I get attacked on a regular basis) and then ask please stop spreading propaganda.
This will be a reply all back to about 300 plus people which should make my life interesting for a couple of days. Replying back to these emails is important because using the tools of sunlight and ridicule stops some of the propaganda (not all). And after this I don't really carry on the Pie fight. It seems to work for a little while. And it's makes that person think before sending another piece of ranting propaganda.
FINALLY SOME ONE ASKED HIM THE QUESTION!
ON "ABC-TV" Monday October 12, 2009
DURING THE "NETWORK SPECIAL ON HEALTH CARE".... OBAMA WAS ASKED:
"MR PRESIDENT WILL YOU AND YOUR FAMILY GIVE UP YOUR CURRENT HEALTH CARE PROGRAM
AND JOIN THE NEW 'UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE PROGRAM' THAT THE REST OF US WILL BE ON ????" THERE WAS A STONEY SILENCE AS OBAMA IGNORED THE QUESTION AND CHOSE NOT TO ANSWER IT !!!
IN ADDITION, A NUMBER OF SENATORS WERE ASKED THE SAME QUESTION AND THEIR RESPONSE WAS."WE WILL THINK ABOUT IT."
AND THEY DID. IT WAS ANNOUNCED TODAY ON THE NEWS THAT THE "KENNEDY HEALTH CARE BILL" WAS WRITTEN INTO THE NEW HEALTH CARE REFORM INITIATIVE ENSURING THAT THAT CONGRESS WILL BE 100% EXEMPT !
SO, THIS GREAT NEW HEALTH CARE PLAN THAT IS GOOD FOR YOU AND I... IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR OBAMA, HIS FAMILY OR CONGRESS...??
WE (THE AMERICAN PUBLIC) NEED TO STOP THIS PROPOSED DEBACLE ASAP !!!! THIS IS TOTALLY WRONG !!!!!
PERSONALLY, I CAN ONLY ACCEPT A UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE OVERHAUL THAT EXTENDS TO EVERYONE... NOT JUST US LOWLY CITIZENS... WHILE THE WASHINGTON "ELITE" KEEP RIGHT ON WITH THEIR GOLD-PLATED HEALTH CARE COVERAGES.
If you don't pass this around, may you enjoy his Plan!
