The state-run media totes the party line today in announcing Dear Leader’s latest push for nationalized health care:

Using better-than-expected jobs numbers to press his top domestic priority, President Barack Obama argued Saturday that overhauling the nation’s costly health care system is essential to the country’s economic well-being.

“We’ve begun to put the brakes on this recession and … the worst may be behind us,” Obama proclaimed in his weekly radio and Internet address, citing a new Labor Department report that shows a dip in unemployment. “But we must do more than rescue our economy from this immediate crisis; we must rebuild it stronger than before.”

He added: “We must lay a new foundation for future growth and prosperity, and a key pillar of a new foundation is health insurance reform.”

It’s a pitch that comes as the Democratic-controlled Congress wrestles to write a health care plan that meets Obama’s goals of expanding coverage to millions of uninsured while reining in exploding costs.

The US unemployment rate rose from 7.6% to 9.7% under Obama… the highest rate in 26 years.

Obama said with the Stimulus Bill the unemployment rate would not go over 8% but the unemployment rate is currently hovering around 9.5%.

Obama claims his plan is working.
And, now he wants to takeover the health care industry.
