While you are patting yourself on the back for the creation of a compromised bill, you have been fooled by your Chief of Staff. I understand that Mr. Emanuel thinks you have no problem with your base (you know-- the little people who worked so hard to put you in office because we believed in you.)
Rahm Emanuel is dead wrong.
Wake up and read the polls, Mr. President. You are rapidly losing your support thanks to your total bungling of this effort and the birthing of a bailout of the insurance cartel and a sell out to big pharma, so those two industries can continue to gouge the poor American public.
It's a DISGRACE!!!!!! We are mad as hell.
YOU ARE NOT LISTENING TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE, MR. PRESIDENT!
Instead of living up to the ideals you campaigned on, you have sold out to the corporations that are killing this country.
You are even worse than the Republicans.
