Healthscare: A Felon's Creation


Big Government.com is now breaking the news that the game plan followed by the Dems to get socialized medicine passed was authored by a federal felon.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) has pushed for a public option within the healthcare debate. Now meet her husband, Robert Creamer.

From biggovernment.com:

Rep. Schakowsky’s husband, Robert Creamer, used to be the leader of Citizen Action/Illinois. He also founded its predecessor, Illinois Public Action, in which Ms. Schakowsky served as Program Director. He runs a political consulting firm, the Strategic Consulting Group, which lists ACORN and the SEIU among its clients and which made $541,000 working for disgraced former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich.

Creamer resigned from Citizen Action/Illinois after the FBI began investigating him for bank fraud and tax evasion at Illinois Public Action. He was convicted in 2006 and sentenced to five months in federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, plus eleven months of house arrest.

Now while Creamer was in prison, he wrote a book titled Listen to Your Mother: Stand Up Straight! How Progressives Can Win (Seven Locks Press, 2007). In it he outlines how to get socialized medicine rammed down the throats of the American people.

The ten points outlined by Creamer:

  • “We must create a national consensus that health care is a right, not a commodity; and that government must guarantee that right.”
  • “We must create a national consensus that the health care system is in crisis.”
  • “Our messaging program over the next two years should focus heavily on reducing the credibility of the health insurance industry and focusing on the failure of private health insurance.”
  • “We need to systematically forge relationships with large sectors of the business/employer community.”
  • “We need to convince political leaders that they owe their elections, at least in part, to the groundswell of support of [sic] universal health care, and that they face political peril if they fail to deliver on universal health care in 2009.”
  • “We need not agree in advance on the components of a plan, but we must foster a process that can ultimately yield consensus.”
  • “Over the next two years, we must design and organize a massive national field program.”
  • “We must focus especially on the mobilization of the labor movement and the faith community.”
  • “We must systematically leverage the connections and resources of a massive array of institutions and organizations of all types.”
  • “To be successful, we must put in place commitments for hundreds of millions of dollars to be used to finance paid communications and mobilization once the battle is joined.”
That was easy, wasn't it? Think about all the games played by the Dems in this battle of socialist proportions. They've followed this almost step-by-step.

More on this story will be hitting the web soon. Please read the article at biggovernment.com. It speaks volumes.

Btw....Schlakowsky and Creamer were in attendance at the "crashed" State Dinner. Could it be another political quid pro quo?

Good Grief, there are more felons per capita in Illinois than in DC! Jan Shit Cow Ski is a liberal jerk, and her husband is a tool. I can't wait to vote out as many of these psycho's as I possibly can!

Bunni: Please do, hon. In fact, living in Illinois, do so multiple times. They don't care! lol

The worst part is that I'm not even surprised. Nothing about this administration and the whole progressive movement would surprise me now.

They could announce that Karl Marx DNA was recovered and used to genetically engineer baby Barack and I wouldn't be surprised.

Thanks Fan ... keep em comin'

Bunni ... Ill F***ing nois again.

Spinster: Sad statement we can make, eh? Who ever would have thought that we'd come to this as a country?

Odie: I wish we here in the blogosphere didn't have to report on this shit. It's getting sooooo bad!

It's not Bunni's fault that Illinois is so screwed up. I'd say it's safe to say that she's probably the only rational person left in the state.

Hey Denise! I love that! I would have to agree with you! I probably am only one of the few sane ones...Chicago Ray & Jim McMahon are rational too.

Wasn't Glenn's Video Something. Like he said, these leftist loons are DISPICABLE. I hope you clicked on the links and then watched the talking cats video's.
The kiddies would love them.....Glenn's one I posted, not so much. I am even madder now. That's why I put the polar bear sticking out his tongue at them.

blackandgoldfan said...

Sorry. Didn't know that there were actually 3 rational people in Chitown.

Kids are in bed, but I'll be sure to show Cheyenne the kitties in the morning. She'll love them!

You're surprised this was put together by crooks? The whole thing is a massive theft with the crafty using the stupid as pawns. What else is new for the Commucrats?

Welcome to the United States of SEIU.

They do love their criminal politicians in Illinois. Why am I not surprised ACORN and SEIU is involved.

Quid Pro Quo = Five Buck Hooker.

There is going to be one freakin' BIG mess to undo...

...and that's just to clean a path onto the operating room, if we're going to achieve real cut-back of the statist cancer.

blackandgoldfan said...

Ran: It's a mess that never should've been allowed.

Watch for a full-court press for the rest of the month. They don't want this an open issue in an election year.
