(It’s been difficult to get a crowd estimate as the media, the same ones who refused to cover the Van Jones story, the same media that’s stifling the ACORN piece, can’t be exactly counted upon to report honestly. And that’s why mainstream media is dead.)
President Barack Obama, saying the U.S. has never been closer to overhauling health care, promised to fight back against opponents and special interests working to defeat the effort.
“I will not waste time with those who have made the calculation that it’s better politics to kill this plan than improve it,” Obama told 13,000 people gathered to rally around his health-care proposals at Minneapolis’s Target Center. “If you misrepresent what’s in the plan, we will call you out.”
“They can’t stop us, let’s go get this done,” he said before leaving the stage.
So, even though the majority of Americans oppose this health care legislation, even though over a million people marched in Washington D.C. yesterday (not to mention Los Angeles and Quincy) to protest the poor choices made by this administration, the president still plans to “fight” his constituents and ignore the will of the republic.
