That was then, this is now
After Harry Reid and his 59 cronies in the US Senate voted on Christmas Eve to cut Medicare and tax health care benefits of the American middle class, President Obama proudly exclaimed the vote is moving us “toward the end of a nearly century-long struggle” and that the bill “includes the toughest measures ever taken to hold the insurance industry accountable.”
His remarks are hypocritical in light of what he said on the campaign trail.
But last year an Obama campaign ad blasted Senator John McCain (R-AZ) for proposing what the President is now praising in Reid’s health care bill. Yes, we have the proof because the President’s political hacks failed to seek out and destroy the evidence! The President’s campaign ad may not live long on YouTube if recent history is any guide. So view it while you can.
The first video is Obama’s original campaign ad that slams John McCain for proposing to pay for health care reform by taxing health care benefits and cutting Medicare–both of which are contained in Reid’s health care bill Obama seems so giddy about now. The video below is an edited version of the campaign ad that was adapted to target Reid’s bill.
Please rate the second video if you like it, because the liberals have already started giving it low marks.
