Tom Bevan's post on RealClearPolitics points out a stunning admission from President Obama's meeting with the GOP leadership on Friday.
Here are the President remarks (also on video):
The last thing I will say, though -- let me say this about health care and the health care debate, because I think it also bears on a whole lot of other issues. If you look at the package that we've presented -- and there's some stray cats and dogs that got in there that we were eliminating, we were in the process of eliminating. For example, we said from the start that it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your -- if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you're not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making. And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge. [emphasis added]
So, Mr. President, whatever happened to that pledge? Ya think Pelosi, Reid and your band of merry zealots broke your pledge?...Ya think?
It has never been about fixing health care. It has always been about control.
Should our enemies' arrows blot out the sun, then we shall fight in the shade.
