News Talk Online June 21, 2009: Obama's Ratings Slip, GOP Pushes Back On Health Care

As President Obama's approval ratings begin to slip, some Republicans are smelling blood and are using his health reform proposal as means to mortally wound him politically.

Of course, the Democratic version of the health bill deserves greater scrutiny and should not, as the president wants, be rushed through Congress.

On the other hand, Republicans should, as they promised during their national convention, be putting country first and ought not to be unilaterally opposing the measure on purely partisan grounds. The health system, after all, does deserve reform. The real worry is that, after members of both parties finally finish with whatever bill ultimately passes, the nation may be worse off in terms of health care than it even is now.

gary i need to talk to you about an iraqi war vet who is in jail and is going before the judge on july 30th. he was charged with aggravated assault but no one is telling the true story of what happened. you can do that. you can interview his mother and get this out to the public. nathan is not the only one who this has happened to. there are many vets coming back with ptsd and other issues and are not being taken care of properly. they end up in jail or homeless or dead by their own hands or all of the above. please go to our website and read this story.


i have the mother's information so you can call her. just pm me a you know i am on here 24/7 and i will give it to you. you can help by getting this info out to the public and maybe just maybe something will be done about this!!
