Obama Betrayal Syndrome

“I want my money back, President Obama!”

That’s the title of Marie Marchand’s column in Common Dreams this week.

Marie Marchand says she gave $20 a week for seven months to the Obama campaign — plus $60 every once in a while for a t-shirt and sticker.

“I gave of my modest purse joyfully,” she writes. “I thought I was supporting change I could believe in, not more of the same bloodshed and war!”

She now feels betrayed.

Millions of Americans are feeling betrayed.

They thought Obama as President meant change we can believe in.

They thought Obama as President meant withdrawal from Iraq.

They thought Obama as President meant standing up to Wall Street fat cats.

They thought Obama as President meant a living wage.

But for those of you who stood with us during the 2008 Presidential campaign, you knew the score.

You do not feel betrayed.

You are immune to Obama Betrayal Syndrome.

Because you knew, as we pointed out repeatedly during the campaign, that Obama was the corporate Democrat.

Beholden to large campaign contributors from Wall Street.

>From the military industrial complex.

And from the health insurance pharma complex.

You knew what my campaign colleague Theresa Amato has documented in her new book — Grand Illusion: The Myth of Voter Choice in a Two Party Tyranny (New Press, June 2009.)

That the Democrats and Republicans are beholden to their corporate paymasters.

You knew that the only way out was to organize from the grassroots up.

That’s why we started Single Payer Action — to put the question squarely to this corporate Congress and to the corporate Obama administration — why is single payer, everybody in, nobody out, free choice of doctor and hospital — off the table?

After all, Single Payer is supported by the majority of Americans and the majority of doctors and nurses.

In West Virginia, Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito (R-West Virginia) — why is single payer off the table?

In Florida, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Florida) — why is single payer off the table?

In Oregon, Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-Oregon) — why is single payer off the table?

In Washington, D.C., First Lady Michelle Obama, Senators Max Baucus (D-Montana) Charles Schumer (D-New York) Chris Dodd (D-Connecticut) and Kent Conrad (D-North Dakota) — why is single payer off the table?

Check out Single Payer Action TV — and watch as activists from around the country demand an answer from these politicians — why is single payer off the table?

Thanks to your generous contributions, Single Payer Action has been able to pump up a constant stream of single payer actions around the country.

Congress is now on its Independence Day recess.

Here’s what you can do to help out Single Payer Action and its summer accountability tour.

First, find out — through your Congress member’s office, from your local newspaper, or by word of mouth — when and where your member of Congress or Senator will be holding a town hall meeting or other public event.

And let Single Payer Action know.

Send the information along to: action@singlepayeraction.org.

Second, Single Payer Action needs your help now to help fund its summer actions.

You donate, and Single Payer Action provides the actions and then reports back to you — through its web site — singlepayeraction.org.

So, please donate now — $10, $25, $50, $100, $500 — or whatever you can afford.

If you donate $100 or more now, Single Payer Action will send you a copy, hot off the press, of Theresa Amato’s hard cover, 379-page masterpiece — Grand Illusion.

Phil Donahue said this about Grand Illusion: “Theresa Amato takes the biggest swing — not a jab, but a roundhouse punch — at America’s corrupt electoral system.”

(Since it also includes chapters about my campaign against the corporate Republicans and Democrats — and since I wrote the foreword — I’ll autograph it.)

So, don’t delay.

Please donate now.

Let’s break through the corporate barriers and make single payer for all a reality.

Together, we can make the difference.

Onward to a life-saving, cost-saving single payer.

I think that when Obama will be out of Washington, he will be welcomed in Hollywood with an acting career possibility: wouldn’t that be a first ( politicians ending up as actors instead of the opposite ) ! 😛

But seriously, I think many united-staters are fed up with the two-party system as well…

thanks, Meredith. Getting the ideas out there was the main purpose of my campaign. I am glad it is continuing to do that.

I am I just to plane simple and stupid or what.

This economic turndown was caused by people buying homes with a variable interest rate. When the interest went up they could no longer afford their homes. The money that the banks borrowed to give the low interest was low. It was fixed. They raised the interest on the borrowers to follow the raising prime rate but they already borrowed the lower prime rate when they gave out the loan. Rather than give up their greed for additional profits they foreclosed those who could not pay the floating interest rate.

It was pure greed and nothing else. The problem could have been solved simply by changing floating interest rate to fixed rates but the banks out of greed would not do that.

Shit I wish that you won the election.

I am writing to find out write-in results for President in the November election. Do you have a tally by candidate? I would like to find out how many votes were cast for Frank Moore?

Thanks so much,

Hi Richard,
Do you have presidential write-in results for any of the following states? Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wisconsin. I believe you had said that Alaska had decided not to count write-ins, and that Oregon has the same policy? But just wanted to confirm … Thanks for any info you have on these states!
— Corey

Richard Winger wrote:
Most of the states in the list below have no declaration of write-in law, and theoretically ought to count all write-ins. Delaware in the past has counted all of them, but they don’t usually release it for quite a while after the election. Alabama has already put up all its write-ins on its election web page. Most counties didn’t bother to report any. Pennsylvania says it will put up its write-ins on its webpage soon. But 18 counties, including Philadelphia, didn’t bother to count or tally any. The state combed thru the reports from the counties and arbitrarily decided to canvass those for Hillary Clinton, Ron Paul, and Chuck Baldwin. Cynthia McKinney was not included. But most of the counties probably reported all their write-ins, so it’s possible Frank will be listed.

Traditionally, Iowa, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont, never release any write-in information. No one pressures those 4 states to do so because their ballot access laws are very easy and virtually anyone with any campaign always gets on in those 4. But this year Vermont elections department did me a favor and did tally Cynthia McKinney’s write-ins. She got 66. It was the first time Vermont Secretary of State had ever tallied write-ins for any particular presidential candidate in November.

Idaho and Wisconsin did have write-in declarations of candidacy and have always been good about reporting the write-ins for those who filed the declaration. I haven’t checked with those two states, out of sheer laziness. Nader write-ins were reported by Idaho in both 2000 and 2004. This year he finally got on the Idaho ballot. Did Frank file in those 2 states?

Oregon, Alaska, Washington, and D.C. won’t provide a tally, even though all 4 places have a declaration of write-in. I am hoping that Oliver Hall will sue D.C. on behalf of Barr and Baldwin. That is the obvious place to sue since a D.C. court ruled in 1974 that such write-ins must be tallied.

yep, penn. is one of the states i’d expect we’d get some votes in.

“Official” vote count so far ….

Blue House wrote:

Here is the “official” vote count so far … Nationwide, this shows Frank with 53 votes. This does not include Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wisconsin, all states where Frank was also qualified. Nebraska does not tally them. Neither do the states of Washington, Oregon, or Alaska. I’m sending a separate email from Richard Winger which talks more about who did and didn’t tally write-in votes, and some history … Alabama does have a huge .pdf file up on their site, showing handwritten tallies of all the write-in votes, but it will be a major undertaking to go through it all and see if Frank shows up … started on it though!
