    What is the difference between Obama and Madoff?

    Madoff took from people who wanted to get something for nothing.

    Obama takes something from people who get nothing.

    If you fell for Madoffs con you got screwed. With Obama's con you don't even have to fall for it. Someone else fell for it, and you get screwed.

    I propose a slight emendation of your brilliant post:

    With Madoff other people fell for it and they got screwed.

    With Obama other people fell for it and we get screwed!

    With Madoff people couldn't GIVE him their money fast enough...



    "President Barack Obama sought to regain control of the health care
    debate Monday, stepping up his direct involvement in lobbying key lawmakers and pressing Democratic leaders in Congress to pass legislation by August.

    He even told fellow Democrats he’d campaign in Iowa for Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley’s reelection, according to a health care industry insider familiar with the meeting. The White House later insisted the offer was a joke, but it underscored just how serious Obama is about getting a bill done this year, since Grassley is the lead Senate GOP negotiator on health reform."

    Do everything you can to slow the process. Write your senators and congressmen. Cause a lot of stir. Maybe we can get it delayed long enough to get some republicans elected in a year and a half.
