This was my response to Valerie Jarrett from her interview on ABC News' This Week with George Stephanopoulos today that was posted on "The Swamp" a Washington based liberal left column of the Chicago Tribune.
As for questions about the plans in Congress to tax so-called Cadillac health-care plans, Jarrett says:"Let's let the process go forward. Let's not pre-judge to the end"
In other words, lets not ask questions right now, lets do it and then ask questions???... Please Jarrett the American people are NOT stupid.
"He (Obama) has reached out. He has listened. He has reached across the aisle...His effort has been sustained throughout the year."
He has done nothing of the sort, when he listens and claims to have reached across the aisle, he ignores the message.
"I think what we look to the president to do is to lead by example,"
Will you Ms Jarrett, the President and Congress also take this healthcare legislation as their own (if passed)? No, they have 100's of other insurance coverage options.
"But ultimately it's up to the Republicans to decide if they want to be a constructive force and come to the table and work with us in a positive way."
You mean YOUR way? Everything that has been proposed from the right has been shot down, time and time again.
"It's rather telling when the Republican Party forces out a moderate Republican" (NY23 election)
Please reference 'forced out'. She quite of her own accord.
"And right now what you see is a great deal of momentum moving forward, for example, on health care. The American people want change"
They want reform, not Government intervention on their choices and certainly not a single payer system.
GET A CLUE!
