Obama Yes We Can Use Deem to Change Status Quo

Think about this. From the audience you face a President of the United States of America giving a speech.

Former President Barack Obama.

He says his Presidency technically started upon his swearing in January, 2009, but his Presidency really began the day the House of Representatives majority of Democrats used a particular parliamentarian procedure to pass Health Care reform.

Deeming, President Barack Obama claims announced to the world how he as President always believed would be the route to the kind of change necessary to transform America.

He tried to work with the opposing party, the Republicans, so too did Congressional leaders, House Speaker, Representative Nancy Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid. But they were the Party of No.

He recalls the day the House of Representatives used the technique known as "Deeming" and he was always a supporter of this and any other techniques to get good bills passed when you face a reluctant opposing political party.

He recalls the people had their say after the Senate's acceptance of the reconciliation bill that resulted and as a result not only did Americans get the health care reform they clamored for, the Democratic Party was returned to the majority with a few more to spare.

The voters confirmed the process worked. And they are still confirming after the Democrats have used the Deem and Pass exclusively since and they - we - remain the majority party in the House of Representatives with a 60-vote majority in the Senate.

After the hour's worth of former President Barack Obama's speech, Mr. Obama took no questions from the audience since he needed to meet former First Lady Michele Obama at her campaign headquarters.

All he said was Stay with us, return us to the White House and vote Yes we can for Michele Obama for President of the United States.

Thank you Health be with you and God Bless America
