Letter to the editor: Did it work?
Did Barack Obama's speech (to congress about health care) work? Did it revive BamaCare?
The preliminary evidence suggests that it did not. Soon the afterglow of the speech will fade, and we will be back to status quo antebellum. During the debate over health insurance reform, we've all been inundated with misinformation, made up myths, fuzzy math and plain old lies thrown around by the Obama administration.
The reason is simple. Obama's problem can't be solved with eloquence of speech-craft. The American people have reviewed the health care issue, and they have decided they do not want a big government, one-size-fits-all solution from Washington that herds millions of people into a public plan and puts a bureaucrat between patients and doctors.
