Schakowsky is married to Robert Creamer, an ex-con on self appointed community organizer who while in prison, wrote a book that seems to be the blueprint for President Obama's plan to shove America into a government-run health care plan.
Pollak recounts Creamer/Obama's long march:
•“We must create a national consensus that health care is a right, not a commodity; and that government must guarantee that right.”
•“We must create a national consensus that the health care system is in crisis.”
•“Our messaging program over the next two years should focus heavily on reducing the credibility of the health insurance industry and focusing on the failure of private health insurance.”
•“We need to systematically forge relationships with large sectors of the business/employer community.”
•“We need to convince political leaders that they owe their elections, at least in part, to the groundswell of support of [sic] universal health care, and that they face political peril if they fail to deliver on universal health care in 2009.”
•“We need not agree in advance on the components of a plan, but we must foster a process that can ultimately yield consensus.”
•“Over the next two years, we must design and organize a massive national field program.”
•“We must focus especially on the mobilization of the labor movement and the faith community.”
•“We must systematically leverage the connections and resources of a massive array of institutions and organizations of all types.”
•“To be successful, we must put in place commitments for hundreds of millions of dollars to be used to finance paid communications and mobilization once the battle is joined.”
Creamer, as I reported on the night of the event, was a guest at Obama's first state dinner--the same one the Salahis crashed.
Where was the mainstream media?
Creamer spent five months in the Terre Haute Federal Correction Institute--followed by year of house arrest--after pleading guilty to a tax evasion charge stemming from his role in a tax-kiting scheme.
He also worked on Rod Blagojevich's first gubernatorial campaign.
In 2007, Creamer was a trainer for something called Camp Obama.
