Community Organizers Mobilize to Save ObamaCare

Matthew Vadum is an award-winning investigative reporter and the author of the book, "Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts Are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers."


Pages: 1 2

The Obama administration has enlisted one of America’s leading economic terrorist groups to help defend and promote the president’s widely unpopular socialist healthcare scheme.

This development is not all that surprising because when liberal policies threaten to destroy the country Democrats typically think all they need to do is shout louder to make people understand how wonderful the hated policies really are. This ongoing collaboration with radical left-wing community organizers is also part of the Obama reelection campaign’s divide-and-conquer strategy: Inflame the base and attack opponents relentlessly to draw the public’s attention away from the worsening economy.

In a spectacle that ought to nauseate decent Americans, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius supplicated before Rev. Al Sharpton’s radical left-wing National Action Network (NAN) at its annual convention in the nation’s capital last week. She urged activists at the fancy corporate-sponsored confab to get into the trenches and fight for the misnamed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) and to let their neighbors know that the law gives them access to mountains of taxpayer-funded freebies.

“In our country what we know is healthcare inequality [has been] one of the most persistent forms of injustice but over the past three years, as Rev. Sharpton reminded us, we have begun to turn the tide,” Sebelius said. “Now is not the time to turn back.”

“We know that the best way to keep moving in the right direction is to get people the facts. Right now there are a lot of people who are benefiting from this law who don’t even know that’s why they are benefiting.”

“We need your help,” the former Kansas governor said. “I’m delighted to be your partner in that effort.” Sebelius, named by Forbes as the 13th most powerful woman in the world by virtue of her post at HHS, virtually runs the federal Leviathan. The proposed fiscal 2013 budget for HHS is a staggering $941 billion. If Obamacare isn’t killed HHS could devour most of the federal budget in the not-too-distant future.

Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, director of coverage policy in the Office of Health Reform (OHR) at HHS, reinforced her boss’s message. In an interview at the conference she said groups like NAN, National Council of La Raza, and the newly rebranded ACORN spinoffs should sing the praises of Obamacare all across the fruited plain.

“So much of this is about educating people and making sure they know what’s in the Affordable Care Act and understanding what it means for them,” said Brooks-LaSure, a former Democratic staffer on the House Ways & Means Committee. “And that is the key to making sure that people understand just how important the law is, to making sure that we improve our healthcare system.”

    Let us take an example of Texas. The "Penny Health" is quite popular in Arizona. It provides so many offers for the low income people.

      We must have a national health care plan. Medicare for all. The US is a third rate country behind the more civilized countries of the world. The only thing the US can now do is fight wars. Of course we outsource all the support military services to Halliburten, so we (Military) cannot fight a war on it's own.

    Hey Chiquita Banana, “So much of this is about educating people and making sure they know what’s in the Affordable Care Act and understanding what it means for them,”. Let me tell ya honey…..we DO understand what this abortion means to us!! That's why we are against it, and against other policies of White House Stinky (aka BO).

  • MrWHBraden

    Vote all Democrates out of office, local, state and federal.

      While we're at it, let's expose the partisan media for the liars the are! When they ask questions of Romney, he should answer often WITH a question to challenge their motive. The lie that the public "want to know" needs to be exposed for the lie it is. So often (as with NBC deliberately deleting the question from the dispatch that prompted Zimmermann's answer about Trayvon's description and race) we get half-truths or presumption that passes for "news". Perhaps it's time that the first Amendment be amended somehow that the information be tried by the public and that liars should be punished.

      • Walt

        As bad as the left-wing propaganda re Zimmerman is, can you imagine the deep do-do he would be in if the dispatcher/recordings were not part of the mix?

    How does "rallying" around this help their cause? It is in the hands of the Supreme Court. None of their demonstrations or cries of "injustice" will do a damn thing to persuade the Court.
    Unless, of course, it is for the expected rejection by the court and they are lining up their ducks so Congress gets to count the votes at stake when they revisit the issue. Pretty slick….get Congress afraid to go against them by making a lot of noise before the issue is even back in their hands. Meanwhile, 70% of the country is opposed to it but we don't make the same noise as Sharpton and Congress behaves like a little child. Whoever is loudest is who they fear.

      This is an attempt to destroy any checks and balances on the 'dear one'.

      This white house has ignored court decisions before you know, it's even been held in contempt of court before.
      This is their way of excusing it, 'for the people'.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    These people that follow Sharpton and Jackson get a headache and call for and ambulance for a
    ride to the local emergency room where they are entertained or maybe even treated for some malady
    with a placebo. The tax payer pays for this all the time and Hospitals go broke because Sharptons
    and Jacksons followers never pay. If they were made somewhat responsible and advised the charges
    would come out of their next welfare check, maybe some of the abuse would stop. Leftists have
    engrained in peoples minds they are owed a free ride and dumb down their education to reflect
    what they want, mindless automatons sucking the life out of the working class that is wise to the
    scams and hopefully this will blow back into Obamas face………………………..William

    One of the biggest problems in America is mental health. Most communities no longer are dealing with sociopaths effectively. The victims of these degenerates have to seek out shelter from them while they roam our communities protected by maligned attorneys using them to prosper & unresponsive elected officials.

  • truckwork

    I don't know if Matthew Vadum had this as his intent when he wrote this article but the most disconcerting part of this article is the number of people in this administration who support ACORN, NAN and others who want either deliberately or not as their main objective, the destruction of this Country.

    I suggest that those who are presently holding office whether there is a D or R behind their name, if they aren't legitimately working against this administration in all the unconstitutional and illegal actions that they have taken, then they need to go. The continual assualt against our God given Liberties isn't all Obama's fault. Congress needs to stand up to this POTUS and put him back in his place. There are 454 people who are at fault and we as the electorate need to hold them accountable.

  • ctyankee

    I think one of the scariest parts of ObamaCare is the extensive executive powers that it grants to HHS Secretary Sebelius. She certainly has a vested interest in the bill.

      An unelected official with no respect for the people she 'dictates' to.

  • kongMing

    During the New York crack epidemic, an ex-Gambino member turned FBI informant filmed Sharpton trying to buy a kilo of cocaine from the mob.

    Sharpton only responded once to this, saying there’s more tape which exonerates him. I wonder what he could of said after “so I can get a kilo for 20k?” which could have squashed his past drug trafficking, let him run for president as a Democrat numerous times, let him collect millions in donations, and allow MSNBC to give him a TV show?

  • BuzzPa

    Our Republican and Conservative leaders in the spotlight must themselves inflame their base and attack opponents relentlessly to focus the public's attention on the U.S.A.'s worsening economy! … The Republican and Conservative leaders who are in the spotlight need to shout louder than the Left to make people understand the horrors of President Obama's and his followers' destructive policies! … Why are the Republican and Conservative leaders allowing the Communists to out-shout them? … Are there no Republican and/or Conservative leaders with a "TIGER IN THEIR TANKS!" …..

    • Bob

      You have nailed it, there is not Republican/Conservative willing to fight this left wing shouting. Its as though all Republican/Conservative/Moderate or anything are just to stupid to hear or do anything..

    • fiddler

      NO MORE Mr/Ms nice guy! No more obsessing over "decorum"! Time to take the gloves off! It's our kids future we are fighting for!!

    • fiddler

      Conservatives worried about the press? Let's REALLY give them something to write about! If we are going to be labelled EXTREMISTS anyway, let's be economic conservative extremists!! We need to be a "one issue" party, and ram-rod this message daily.

    • pagegl

      The Republican party leadership needs to grow a pair.

  • mrbean

    Let us hope that the Supreme Court declares this monstrosity unconstitutional and that Romney when he is President, keeps his word and doesn't RINO out on us and do the McCain thing and tryto revive it in some form.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

      If he tries to impose Romneycare I am going to be really disappointed. Not shocked, but I will be disappointed.

  • Bob

    The Conservative representatives of ours that we trusted to do something, have done nothing. We as Americans are left out to dry,wondering if anyone on the right hears or sees us. The Conservative movement is lost, gone with the whimpering Republican representative in Congress and the Senate. Our party needs a boost, someone that will start the engines of change from this king that has our country in his power. All of the black representatives or black caucus, all stand with this dictator, the black voice is loud,strong,and willing to lie, cheat and manipulate the country to their kings agenda. Were are we, the white caucus,the white voice, the representatives that we need to have our voice heard. Lost to a political correct,corrupt,lying,system.

    • mrbean

      Yes, we must embrace the nanny state and try to be more like the Democrats for the greater glory of Chairman Obama. As for the blacks, I have given up on that crowd ever being anything but parasites sucking the life blood out of America a long time ago.

    Is this REALLY our AMERICA??????

    Know the TRUTH about the Government Health Care Bill H.R.3200 – Key Points http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcBaSP31Be8

  • Linda Rivera

    An inferior health care plan that no one wants and CANNOT afford to pay. The threat to jail and/or fine
    those who don't purchase the government enforced plan.

    Massive spending as if there is no tomorrow.

    Fighting wars we have no money for. Massive borrowing.

    The Massive giving away of Billions of dollars every year to other countries,
    including the oil-wealthy Middle East, Hamas-controlled Gaza and the Palestinian Authority organization who
    fill their war chests, build mansions and laugh all the way to the bank with FREE infidel money.
    Whilst in America, homeless shelters are filled to capacity; tent cities have sprung up all over the U.S. filled with
    desperate, jobless, homeless, neglected Americans.

    Massive debt. The massive printing of paper money out of thin air to DELIBERATELY create out-of-control inflation.

    There is no question that the total DESTRUCTION of America's economy is planned. The results will be
    horrifying. In the once wealthy and great nation of America, millions of Americans will become destitute, hungry and homeless with no money or resources to help them. What a huge VICTORY for ALL of America's enemies.

    ".. even the U.S. Supreme Court justices, whose job it is to interpret what this law means and whether or not its provisions pass Constitutional muster, haven't read it. We know that Congress hasn't read it, Nancy Pelosi made sure that all Americans would never forget that fact. "

    Oh, Amused would tell you that that doesn't matter. They want an answer NOW because "the public wants to know". They don't speak for me. I'm sick and tired of the ASSUMPTION that Nancy Pelosi et al say the American People want to know. Vote them out!

  • pagegl

    We need to enact a law such that no bill can be passed by Congress until every Congressman has read and understands it. The notion that a bill can be passed into law with no one who has voted on it able to explain it is insane.
