President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address to Be Discussed Thursday January 28. Upcoming Political Guests: Meghan McCain, Jenny Sanford, Mitt Romney and Andrew & Cheri Young.
As the nation awaits President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address tonight, the subject on everyone’s mind and crossing everyone’s lips is the controversial topic of Universal Healthcare. This hot button issue continues to take center stage on “The View.” On January 20, moderator Whoopi Goldberg exclaimed: “Everybody is disappointed with everybody. Everybody’s great at getting what they want. When this nice man, this hot man (Massachusetts Senator-Elect Scott Brown, whom co-host Joy Behar lovingly re-named “Senator McDishy”) gets sworn in, his whole family is going to be covered with the most amazing plan there can be on earth because that’s what all those guys have, all the senators. I want what you have,” she said looking directly at the camera.
Goldberg continued “I would like to have health care that I could depend on. I want that. You think I have a lot of money. Yeah. But my insurance doesn’t cover J-A-C-K. I want what all those guys and gals in Washington, who make the decisions and decided whether we should get something, I want to get what they’ve got, and then we don’t have to talk about it anymore. GIVE ME WHAT YOU GOT. GIVE ME WHAT YOU GOT. It may not happen, but if enough people get (expletive) p—ed off and say ‘wait a minute Mr. Congressman, Mr. Senator, what makes you a better person than me? I work just like you do. I work every day. I pay my taxes. Why can’t I have what you have?’ Everybody (expletive) b—-ed that (former President George) Bush didn’t do a damn thing, now we’ve got someone who’s overdoing stuff and everyone’s mad about that.” She proclaimed loudly, “GIVE ME WHAT YOU’VE GOT!”
