…It makes me puke that we have just been “Cheneyed” by a man named Barak Obama- Greg Palas on Air America 8/11/09
The world must nearing an end, snowballs are being thrown in Hell, and pigs are growing wings. Air America is bashing their messiah Barack Obama.
It all stems from the secret meetings President Obama had with the people from the Pharmaceutical Industry to craft deals and win support for Obamacare. Even the ultra-liberal Air America has figured out that something sneaky happened in those meetings, especially since Pharma is now the President’s most favored industry.
During the January 2008 Democratic Debate in South Carolina. Obama promised that his reform of health care including the negotiations will be open in a public setting, and not behind closed doors. In fact he said they needed to be open because that’s why Hillarycare was defeated.(for those on the email list CLICK HERE to see the videos)
When Vice-President Dick Cheney had private meetings with Oil Company executives (the National Energy Policy Development Group) to help him make recommendations about energy policy, all hell broke loose, Congress even had hearings about the matter, in the end the meetings were kept secret and congress complained, especially Mr Obamacare himself, Congressman Waxman:
Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, who unsuccessfully pushed for details of the meetings, said it is “ridiculous” that it has taken six years to see who attended the meetings. He described the energy task force as an early indicator of “how secretively Vice President Cheney wanted to act.” Waxman said he was not surprised to see the prevalence of energy industry groups on the list of meetings. “Six years later, we see we lost an opportunity to become less dependent on importing oil, on using fossil fuels, which have been a threat to our national security and the well-being of the planet,” he said.
