ConsumerWatchdog.org and the Tea Party: Joined at the Hip to Bash President Obama's Health Care Plan
Unlike every other major consumer and labor group, ConsumerWatchdog.org spent most of 2009 bashing President Barack Obama and his attempt to make the Affordable Health Care Act law http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jamie-court/obama-owes-progressives-a_b_322192.html, just as they had opposed then-Senator Hillary Clinton's health care efforts http://voices.yahoo.com/hillary-clintons-mandatory-health-insurance-plan-is-553591.html and efforts by Democrats in the California legislature to provide health care to all of the state's children and working families http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/nunez-and-legislators-urged-to-oppose-mandatory-purchase-of-private-health-insurance-58306602.html
In fact, ConsumerWatchdog's Jamie Court called it an "attack on the middle class family." He even said he agreed with Tea Party Republicans like GOP Senator Mitch McConnell http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmvJePba298 about the key provision of the President's health care law that was discussed in front of the United States Supreme Court today, calling for a repeal of the individual mandate -- an action that would undermine the law that Democrats fought so hard for in Congress.
Yet today, as nearly every
progressive group and Democrat in the nation stands solidly behind the
President, ConsumerWatchdog.org continues to bash the President for its own
self-interest. In an interview on Fox News -- which obviously loves the idea of
a "consumer" group bashing the President -- Court once again flogs
the idea that is central to health care reform http://www.consumerwatchdog.org/video/what-supreme-courts-review-federal-health-care-law-could-mean-ca
. Instead of supporting the President, the
organization is pimping a proposal that itis trying to put on the California
ballot that would put millions of dollars of "intervenor fees" into
the pockets of Court and ConsumerWatchdog.org founder Harvey Rosenfeld while
doing nothing to provide Californians with health care.
