    Big Government » Blog Archive » Was Democrats’ Health Care Strategy Written In Federal Prison?

    On August 31, I headed to the health care town hall meeting of my congressional representative, Jan Schakowsky
    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YtcmmYOesk&feature=player_embedded[/ame]

    Snip
    Rep. Schakowsky’s husband, Robert Creamer, used to be the leader of Citizen Action/Illinois. He also founded its predecessor, Illinois Public Action, in which Ms. Schakowsky served as Program Director. He runs a political consulting firm, the Strategic Consulting Group, which lists ACORN and the SEIU among its clients and which made $541,000 working for disgraced former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich.

    snip

    While in prison—or “forced sabbatical,” he called it—Creamer wrote a lengthy political manual, Listen to Your Mother: Stand Up Straight! How Progressives Can Win (Seven Locks Press, 2007).
    The book was endorsed by leading Democrats and their allies, including SEIU boss Andy Stern—the most frequent visitor thus far to the Obama White House—and chief Obama strategist David Axelrod, who noted that Creamer’s tome “provides a blueprint for future victories.”
    In the book, Creamer draws lessons from decades of experience on the radical left, including the teachings of arch-radical Saul Alinsky, and several episodes from Rep. Schakowsky’s political career. He also lays out a “Progressive Agenda for Structural Change,” which includes a ten-point plan for foisting universal health care on the American people in 2009:

    “We must create a national consensus that health care is a right, not a commodity; and that government must guarantee that right.”

    “We must create a national consensus that the health care system is in crisis.”

    “Our messaging program over the next two years should focus heavily on reducing the credibility of the health insurance industry and focusing on the failure of private health insurance.”

    “We need to systematically forge relationships with large sectors of the business/employer community.”

    “We need to convince political leaders that they owe their elections, at least in part, to the groundswell of support of [sic] universal health care
    , and that they face political peril if they fail to deliver on universal health care in 2009.”

    “We need not agree in advance on the components of a plan, but we must foster a process that can ultimately yield consensus.”

    “Over the next two years, we must design and organize a massive national field program.”
    “We must focus especially on the mobilization of the labor movement and the faith community.”
    “We must systematically leverage the connections and resources of a massive array of institutions and organizations of all types.”
    “To be successful, we must put in place commitments for hundreds of millions of dollars to be used to finance paid communications and mobilization once the battle is joined.”

    Creamer adds: “To win we must not just generate understanding, but emotion—fear, revulsion, anger, disgust.”


    Democrats have followed Creamer’s plan to the letter. They have claimed our health care system is in crisis despite polls showing the overwhelming majority of Americans are happy with the care they receive. They have—with the help of President Obama—circulated false horror stories about Americans dying for lack of health care and health insurance.

    Hey remember that party those 2 boneheads crashed at the whitehouse?

    The guy who wrote that book, a convicted felon, was one of the guests at that party.

    Maybe those 2 crashing the party was a "wag-the-dog" moment by the administration to try and distract people from looking at the rest of the guest list so no one would report on this author and felon being there.

    Interesting thread, 'health care strategy written in prison'? Chicago you mean, right? Where the 'convicts in training' are schooled? :lol:

    I sometimes think if we all REALLY were given the 100% truth of what is going on in government(s), we'd all jump in a vat of Jack Daniels and say 'screw it', but, on the other hand........

    In any case it was nice to see Mccain speaking the obvious truth about the back room deals be struck to get the support Obama's machine is getting
