Another Obamanism: "Nobody wants to get something for nothing"
In Newton, Obama told the crowd at TPI Composites that companies like TPI will take a hit if Congress does not act on this item of his "To-Do" list.In the vernacular, boo-freaking-hoo. They chose to go into that business; they deserve to reap the consequences of their failure. Thieves, every last one of them.
And if you're a company that doesn't want to do what Obama does, this happens:
Top administration officials cut backroom deals with the nation’s top drug companies to win support for President Obama’s health care overhaul, threatening them with steeper taxes if they resisted and promising a better financial deal for the industry if they acquiesced, according to internal documents released Thursday by House Republicans.
In some of the key deals, Mr. Obama agreed to drop his long-standing support for letting Americans buy cheaper foreign prescription drugs — something the pharmaceutical industry vehemently opposed — and the drugmakers promised to mount a public campaign to sell the public on the health care legislation.
