Obama is now Mr. Compromise, or the chief nibbler, when it comes to standing up for Americans against corporations. He has shown he can talk the talk, while running from the fight.
Unfortunately, Obama has surrounded himself with many of the same actors from the Democratic Leadership Council who sold out America in the 1990s with deregulation, NAFTA, welfare cuts and outsourcing manufacturing and jobs.
A new ad airing in a dozen states is being paid for by a new coalition called Americans for Stable Quality Care. Members of the group are Families USA, the Service Employees International Union, the drug lobby Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, the American Medical Association and the Federation of American Hospitals. The ad supports the Obama stance on healthcare.
Doctors, hospitals and drug companies are now paying for ads to support Obama’s plan? That proves that he has sold out healthcare reform in favor of insurance changes to bring in 47 million new policy customers, whether they like it or not.
