"Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike continue to offer substantive alternatives – proving that we can have universal access to health coverage in America without the government taking it over, without trillions in new taxes, spending, and debt."--Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI)
--As everyone is aware, the most memorable event from Obama's speech last night was Representative Wilson's outburst. While, it may not have been respectful to Obama and the office of the presidency itself. I can only imagine how difficult it was to hear Obama tell one lie after another and not be able to respond.
--Gateway Pundit points out numerous instances where Obama states information that simply isn't true or is misinformation. And where he also throws in a bunch scare tactics for good measure.
--I was working out at the gym during the speech watching Fox News while doing cardio. I got to see first hand Obama playing the Teddycare card!
--Patrick shares enjoyable commentary with his post, The President's speech was excellent...if you like pap and lies.
--Mike makes an excellent point in his post that others have made:
There was Obama attacking the Republicans while insisting he wants a bipartisan bill. Saying "My door is always open" yet he has refused to meet with House Republicans on the matter since April.Mike also posted the great Republican response by Dr. Charles Boustany.
--Amazing, even the Associate Press admits that Obama wasn't honest in his speech.
