President Barack Obama will address a joint session of Congress on health care reform in prime time on Wednesday, Sept. 9, a senior official tells POLITICO.
Obama will receive House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid at the White House the day before for a previously scheduled sit-down.
The last time a president addressed a joint session of Congress that wasn’t a State of the Union, or the traditional first address by a new president, was Sept. 20, 2001, when President George W. Bush spoke on the war on terrorism following the 9/11 attacks.
A JOINT SESSION!?!?!?
I GUESS AXELOROD THINKS THAT OBAMACARE IS AS BIG A DISASTER FOR OBAMA AS 9/11 WAS FOR THE USA!
ON 09/09/09. HMMM... WHAT DOES THAT SPELL UPSIDE DOWN?
SERIOUSLY, OBAMA, AXELROD, RAHM AND THE LEFT HAVE MADE THIS THEIR OWN PRIVATE WATERLOO.
THEY HAVE LIED AND CALLED OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM BROKEN AND A FAILURE AND AN EMERGENCY DESPITE THE FACT THAT WE NOW HAVE ON AVERAGE THE LONGEST LIVING AND HEALTHIEST PEOPLE ON THE PLANET - - - YES: WE HAVE LONGER LIFESPANS THAT FOLKS IN THE EU!
ER, UM ... IF IT AIN'T BROKE, THEN DON'T FIX IT!
WE CAN MAKE IT BETTER,. BUT NOT BY HAVING POLITICIANS REDESIGN IT AND GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRATS RUN IT ON THE TAXPAYER'S DIME!
