Soros-Funded Activist: 'I Helped Write Obamacare'
Podesta grew up in Chicago (no surprise) was part of the anti-war movement of the sixties and eventually was Chief of Staff for President Bill Clinton. The Center for American Progress has been gleefully endorsed by outstanding people like Mark Rudd:
Mark Rudd was a leader of the '60s mass radical organization Students for a Democratic Society and its terrorist splinter group-Weather Underground Organization.
Rudd claims that the Center for American Progress serves as a "government in waiting" for the Obama administration.
The president of a George Soros-funded “progressive” think tank has boasted about helping to write President Obama’s signature healthcare legislation.
Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, or CAP, appeared Friday night on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” when she was asked by another guest, James Poulos of the Huffington Post, whether she read the text of Obamacare.
“Yes,” she replied. “I helped write the bill. So yes, I read the bill. I read all 2,200 pages of the bill.”
Tanden assumed her CAP position in November 2011 after serving as a senior advisor for the U.S. Health and Human Services. She also worked on Obama’s health-reform team in the White House to help pass the Affordable Care Act.
Tanden argued in a February 2012 CAP report that individual mandates within Obamacare “will be instrumental in achieving near-universal coverage.”
