    ANOTHER example of Barack Obama, being just another politician.


    From the... Huffington Post of all places...

    A memo obtained by the Huffington Post confirms that the White House and the pharmaceutical lobby secretly agreed to precisely the sort of wide-ranging deal that both parties have been denying over the past week.

    The memo, which according to a knowledgeable health care lobbyist was prepared by a person directly involved in the negotiations, lists exactly what the White House gave up, and what it got in return.

    It says the White House agreed to oppose any congressional efforts to use the government's leverage to bargain for lower drug prices or import drugs from Canada -- and also agreed not to pursue Medicare rebates or shift some drugs from Medicare Part B to Medicare Part D, which would cost Big Pharma billions in reduced reimbursements......

    This was posted on ResistNet too, but that doesn't mean it's true.

    Be that as it may... Perhaps you might answer my query? If you did not say..



    ...to imply people like me (those who oppose THIS PARTICULAR HCR bill) don't care about those less fortunate.... What did you mean? You have said that my assumption was wrong. So I am going to do what you ask and give you the courtesy of not assuming what I think it means. So can you please clarify what you meant by that?
    There you go again -- telling me what I have written. You can't find it because...I never wrote it before. Are you calling me a liar? In any event it is a bibical quote - not usually considered offensive or needing clarification.

    And you are reading too much into what I said. Here is what I wrote...

    Isn't it so sad, CM? "As you are to the least of my people, so shall you be unto me" apparently is not part of the credo of many in this country.
    Where does that say anything about "people like you" an offensive phrase I would not use anyway? Where does it say anything about "you people" who oppose universal healthcare?

    If you think it is about you...that is not my problem.

    It means exactly what it says.

    If you do not intend to offend people ES, its a little late for that. LOL

    But I digress....

    Thanks for the typical non-answer. If it "means what it says", then I guess I am right. Cool.

    Offend people...well that is certainly the pot calling the kettle black!

    I am really sorry you cannot understand a simple sentence....

    Isn't it so sad, CM? "As you are to the least of my people, so shall you be unto me" apparently is not part of the credo of many in this country.
    Oh wait. It is two sentences. Is that what is causing you a problem?

    Let me make this clear. I don't take orders. I made a statement. You decide it is about you. For no discernible reason. Everything is not about you. And expect me to clarify my statement.

    Right. Get a dictionary if you must, but stop expecting me to help you understand such a simple statement. Geez

    Sara, now you've got the poor boy stuttering. Backpedaling is very
    difficult for the slow witted.

  8. Really! I make a statement. He "edits" it to be about him (isn't everything) and "assumes" it to say something I didn't and then demands I "defend" my statement.

    Here is something I have stated before. What arrogance. What hubris.

    You two.... LOL


    Who do you think you are fooling with this bullcrap?


    I've talked to some sorry people before.... But, you have taken it to a new level. Congrats!


    Liz... Who was back tracking again? There was only one person in this thread who refused to answer a simple question. Only one who resorted to (as usual) denegrating the person who brought the question. Just like the President....

    Now to you, my dear....


    Like I said in my last post... Your lack of a clarification seems to justify my translation of the sentence in the context used. And thus, you, as usual, are denegrating any person who does not "think" like you do.


    I say again.... Who do you think you are fooling with your bullcrap?
