New ad urges Obama to 'Slow Down' on health care

New ad urges Obama to 'Slow Down' on health care.

WASHINGTON (CNN)–The Republican Party of Minnesota released a new TV ad Friday criticizing President Obama's "risky" health care plan ahead of his rally in Minneapolis Saturday.

The $25,000 buy revisits a speech candidate Obama gave in February of 2008 vowing to bring about change.

The 30-second spot then claims Obama is now "pushing a risky health care plan that would: Cut Medicare; Raise taxes; Ration care; And explode the deficit."

"Mr. President: Let's slow down and do health care reform the right way," the ad concludes.

"Slow Down," will air on national cable in Minnesota until Sunday.

The President will hold his rally on health insurance reform at 1230 CT/130p E.T.

    " claims Obama is now "pushing a risky health care plan that would: Cut Medicare; Raise taxes; Ration care; And explode the deficit."

    All proven to be lies and retarded theories put forward by those incapable of intelligent thought (aka republicans).

    The only risk it involves is to the Health Insurance Companies. It threatens their current Genocide Oriented business model. It threatens rich fat people who have failed to do their part for this great nation into having to finaly do their fair share.

    Anybody who believes the claims of this ad, is a full blown retard.

    Health care has been slow for over 40 years.. We finally have a president that understands the middle ,class this equates to a breath of fresh air.
    Keep it up Mr. President.

    Just another reason why the Republicans are disliked, too negative and offer not one solution to anything. They are self destructing without any help from Democrats.

    ...slow down is just a phrase that means hold off until by some miracle we get back in power and then the hell with reform republicans (leaders) of today are pure scum...bathroom stall foottappers. i feel sorry for those good christian folks that have been duped by them. it is very sad.

    on another note...that wilson showed unacceptable disrespect for the office of our president in the joint session and should be thrown out on his rear end as soon as possible. there is no place for that sort of crap. he needs his bottom kicked hard!

    From the great Thomas Sowell:

    Con men understand that their job is not to use facts to convince skeptics but to use words to help the gullible to believe what they want to believe. No message has been more welcomed by the gullible, in countries around the world, than the promise of something for nothing. That is the core of Barack Obama's medical care plan.

    A republican, white, and Christian, woman suffers from frequent and paralyzing migraine headaches. It gets so bad that he has to go into the bathroom or closet and close the door to block out any light and/or noise. He migraine headaches last 2 to 4 days and are as freque3nt as twice a month.
    She does not have insurance and one pill (emerge) cost $60
    This is one of hundreds of thousands of examples of Americans without health insurance and with horrible illnesses.

    I don't think she/they need to wait. Have a heart.

    The only thing you're going to get out of all of this is a law requiring you to give your money to fat, greedy, rich insurance execs – it's already done deal. What's your hurry?

    It clearly states on the original health care reform that illegal aliens are not covered. It clearly uses the words that NO federal dollars from the health care reform or benefits will go to anyone who is in the USA illegally.
    This is proof that Republicans do Not do their own research. Republicans believe everything they are told by other Republicans.
    How did they ever get through school without research?

    Don't slow down Mr. President. I want health care reform now – not in another 50 or 100 years! What are the republicans so afraid of?

    While I am sure there is no hurry as there are no citizens in Minnesota that are without insurance. This is an example of the dynamics of leadership one could expect if Little Timmy Pawlenty gets to the White House.
