Charles Kramer's ties to Obama's Health Care Program

On July 17th I was taking a Google research class and learned how to research "news" by confining the search to any date I wanted.  In doing so I came across a great photo of my father testifying at the Senate Internal Securities committee -- before Rep. Richard Nixon, I believe -- about his work in the New Deal and his ties to "communism".   Meanwhile, after finding several "news" references to my father and his "comrades" Nathan Witt andJohn Abt, all of whom worked for the Agricultural Adjustment Administration in the 30's, I casually entered my father's name in the Web search box.  Strangely enough, a story came up that astonished me.  My father wrote the original health bill in 1947 for Senator Claude Pepper of Florida that sadly wasn't passed, but that somehow is linked to Obama's health care plan.  A right-wing ideologue published a book about Frank Marshall Davis, a friend of Obama's grandfather, who this ideologue says was Obama's mentor in Hawaii when Obama was TEN YEARS OLD.  So because this man was a "communist" and knew Claude Pepper, he must have told Obama about Dad's "socialized medicine" healthcare bill.  What is the Sir Walter Scott quote-- "Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!" Clearly these right-wing ideologues are so intent on discrediting Obama that they will say anything without foundation.  This man even admits he has no proof.  But meanwhile he writes an entire book.  Oh what a scary world we live in!!  Here is a website that "proves" Obama's tainted ties to caring about humanity.  Please don't believe these people.  The majority of developed countries in the world have "socialized medicine".  In fact, Obama's health care should be single-payer health care.  In fact, this is what these right-wing ideologues truly fear -- real health care for all.


  1. I really enjoyed getting to see the photo of your father.

    And, what a crazy web this Kengor is weaving in his article and book!

    I strongly agree that what we really need in the United States is a single-payer health care system that would truly provide universal coverage. I can only hope that some day the U.S. will join the many other countries that already have such care.

  2. Love your comments Jane!! I so agree. This would be so helpful to the 99%.

  3. *Note to person who keeps calling names on this blog:
    At this point, if you want to rant and rave, do it on your own blog. Your comments are unnecessary since they are the only ones that get published in any case. So why do you care so much? If you keep needing to argue with what I've written then it shows you aren't confident of your knowledge or point of view. And clearly you did not know my parents. Your lack of knowledge is apparent.
