Following Teddy Kennedy’s elaborate funeral, Bill Clinton and Al Gore rolled into Nashville Saturday night for the Jackson Day Democratic fundraiser…and to stump for Barack Obama’s national health care plan.
“We need to pass a bill this year. Doing nothing is not only the worst thing we can do for the economy, it’s the worst thing we can do for the country. It’s also the worst thing we can do for the Democrats. Democrats, you stay in there with your congressmen and you get this done.”
“We have a lot of talk about liberal and conservative, and left and right, but when there are tens of millions of people in our country who can’t get access to health care, we need to pass health care reform this year. Build support for it. Let’s give President Obama the victory our country needs.”
Oh, I see. So it really has nothing to do with morals at all.
Democrats need to pass a bill to give them a shot at re-election in 2010. The bottom line is…health care reform has to pass this year for one reason only…to give President Obama a victory.
