The ever-controversial Reverend Al. Sharpton states that the American people voted for socialism when they voted in President Barack Obama.
“I think the President and Nancy Pelosi get the credit. I think that this is, he began the transforming of the country, the way the President had promised. This is what he ran [on]… First of all we’d have to say that the American public overwhelmingly voted for socialism when they elected President Obama… The President promised the American people health reform when he ran, he was overwhelmingly elected running on that, and he has delivered what he promised. I don’t understand Republicans saying “this is against the will of the American people”. They voted for President Obama, who said this was going to be one of the first things he would do, and he has done the first hurdle of that tonight, So I think the American people were heard loud and clear; this was not some concept the President introduced after he won. He ran on this, and the American people won tonight because they got finally, something from a president that they voted for”
