Obama administration as Transparent as Mud on Health Care Reform

Health Care meetings behind Closed Doors
By day, Democrats tout how open they have been while crafting a bill to reform the nation's health care system. By early evening, they're behind closed doors.

Three times last week, White House officials went to Capitol Hill to meet in closed sessions with top Senate Democrats to put together a health bill.

Bubble, bubble boil and trouble…

Now think about this, we’ve alright been told that Democrat Senators and Congressmen and women can’t read or understand the Health Care Bills which they are crafting behind closed doors. Yet they will be asked to vote on these bills(see previous post)

They can’t understand the legislation because Democrats are casting this legislative spell with the most convoluted and arcane legislative language that any bill can be written in.

And now their leadership is sealed behind closed door session hearings like gathering around secret government cauldrons and these Democrats are conjuring up a Health potion—a nasty brew, that will be poured down the throats of the American people whether the people like it or not. (see story)

But wait, didn’t candidate Barry Hussein Soetoro promise during his campaign that health care talks would be aired live on C-SPAN?
"I'm going to have all the negotiations around a big table," he told a town hall audience in Chester, Va., in August 2008. "We'll have the negotiations televised on C-SPAN, so that people can see who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies.

And so, that approach, I think, is what is going to allow people to stay involved in this process."
But instead of the president’s promise of sunlight shining on the health care negotiations around a big table, what we see as an alternative (our view partly obstructed by woodland trees) in the misty pale moonlight dancing around the cauldron of health care reform are murky figures that slowly come into focus, We see a coven of Democrat apparatchiks among them were such names as; Senate Leader Sen. Harry Reid, Finance Committee Chairman Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, and Sen. Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut.

And joining this clandestine woodland group was White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, health care "czar" Nancy-Ann DeParle, and Peter Orszag, director of the Office of Management and Budget.

So much for president’s campaign promise of transparency, yet president Soetoro is defending even this process as being transparent.
When asked in a July press conference about the level of transparency, Mr. Obama defended the process.

"You will recall in this very room that our kickoff event was here on C-SPAN and, at a certain point, you know, you start getting into all kinds of different meetings," Mr. Obama said. "Senate Finance is having a meeting; the House is having a meeting.

If they wanted those to be on C-SPAN, then I would welcome it. I don't think there are a lot of secrets going on in there."
Huh? So a non sequitur presidential explanation is given and we’re to just accept it? It’s like he’s saying, “Well we had a C-SPAN meeting that should be enough for you.” It should be noted that president Soetoro believes in casting grandiose oratory spells too. So when he says that he doesn’t think there are a lot of secrets going on in “secret” Senate health care meetings, we are supposed to be mesmerized into taking him on his word and just believe like good little Democrat sycophants.

Notwithstanding the fact that this bill is written in “secret” legislative language, that as Congressman John Conyers exclaimed one needs two lawyers to interpret it, and even though Senators and Congressman and women can’t understand it and even though health care reform is being crafted in total secrecy, they will vote to pass it anyways. And this all is in total contradiction of president Soetoro’s campaign promise to be the most transparent presidential administration in the history of America.

Now that the August townhall meetings are but faint memories in the rear view mirrors of the minds of our elected representatives, Pelosi, Reid and Obama continue to toil on our representative’s apparent reflective minds with spells of partisanship and spells of pushing forward the Democrat agenda. This Halloween Health Care Reform will be a trick like no other trick played on the American people if Soetoro’s Health Care Reform is passed over the will of the American people.

President Soetoro’s promised transparency on Health Care Reform is as lucent as a fog socked it Halloween night to which Democrats come to the American porch shouting in unison “TRICK OR TRICK!” Yes by trick or trick health care must be passed and quick! According to Democrats and their lackeys.

Let’s hope it’s on the same track as his decision about sending more troops to Afghanistan. If so Health Care Reform will near be passed!
Yeah, happy Halloween in Health Care Reform America.
