It looks like the White House has decided to “walk back” its support for health care reform, which means they won’t be supporting the “public option” component of the bill anymore. Before they said it was essential, but now they think it’s a good idea, one which we’ll just have to let go so we can get some bill, any bill passed that is bipartisan.
Bipartisanship has turned out to be the make-or-break issue. It doesn’t matter if the bill makes things 100 times worse for every American who is not a health insurance CEO, politician, or lobbyist. What matters is that some bill has bipartisan support.
Appeasing the Republicans has been the only strategy. They don’t think enough has been given in? Appease more!
Looking back at the real world where people who voted on that sole issue were actually expecting the administration to fight vigorously on it, the administration seems confused. They don’t understand why people don’t want a huge transfer of their money to go right to health insurance companies while getting nothing in return. They don’t understand why we want the situation to improve.
They don’t understand why we’re tired of insurance company death panels telling granny to just die.
Me, I don’t see any difference between doing nothing and what the administration has done, which is to fight half-heartedly on the bill, while constantly sending up “trial balloons” to industry that any compromise will be considered, but nothing that will help the public is sacred.
Putting in charge Rahm Emanuel, a man who has always been opposed to health care for real Americans, has resulted in no improvement, just as if there was never any intention of pushing the issue through.
Why, isn’t “any reform” better than “no reform” even if it’s not “reform” at all?
I guess it was just a lie from the start. They counted on us just being willing foot soldiers who will do whatever we are told (“Work for this plan!”, “Keep on giving money!”)
So here, an ad for the rest of us, telling how we feel about it.
Betsy McCaughey is a lying cunt. Betsy McCaughey wants you dead, and she wants to make lots of money for greedy health insurance companies by preventing you from getting the health care you need.
Didn’t you know that when you deny services to people you are sentencing them to death? Because you invented the “death panels” in your diseased brain. Over 100,000 people each year die from lack of health care. You should be ashamed, because you are to blame for their deaths just as much as if you sat in on a death panel and decided you were going to cut off their health care and let them die. Though for all I know, that may be one of your hobbies, too. I understand a lot of joyous laughter goes on in those insurance company death panels when they find an excuse to pull the plug on someone.
Sarah Palin is a lying cunt. Sarah Palin wants you dead, and she wants to destroy the world in a flaming Armageddon that will bring on the End Times and rapture her up to heaven for doing God’s work, which is to be a lying cunt and a tool for people who want to make money off your death.
Barring that, she’s going to make sure you lose your health care. She’s all set, she’s got government-paid health care through her husband’s tribe. Don’t you dare touch her health care!
Sarah Palin was for death panels before she was agin’em!
They want you dead, but first they want you to pay all your money to health insurance companies, so the companies can keep giving them big payoffs. They want your family to borrow tons of money to try to pay the bills, and then they want them to go bankrupt.
How about this, Sarah? Why don’t you let God take care of your health care for you?
UPDATE: Sarah Palin has declared victory against the Obama administration, after the committee removed the living will provision. Now they’re just going to let people pray with their families! Hmm, isn’t that the current health care system in the country already?
Palin went on to claim that health care reform will inevitably lead to single-payer, which will mean rationing. nationalized health care inevitably leads to rationing. There is simply no way to cover everyone and hold down the costs at the same time.
So you favor rationing, but are opposed to it too. Were you for it before you were agin’ it?
Did I say that Sarah Palin is a lying cunt?
After a lovely weekend of conjuring up lies about the health care proposal and more ways she could exploit her spawn…
As more Americans delve into the disturbing details of the nationalized health care plan that the current administration is rushing through Congress, our collective jaw is dropping, and we’re saying not just no, but hell no!
The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.
Health care by definition involves life and death decisions. Human rights and human dignity must be at the center of any health care discussion.
Rep. Michele Bachmann highlighted the Orwellian thinking of the president’s health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the White House chief of staff, in a floor speech to the House of Representatives. I commend her for being a voice for the most precious members of our society, our children and our seniors.
We must step up and engage in this most crucial debate. Nationalizing our health care system is a point of no return for government interference in the lives of its citizens. If we go down this path, there will be no turning back. Ronald Reagan once wrote, “Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.” Let’s stop and think and make our voices heard before it’s too late.
The woman has no shame, and does not care if we know that she has sold her soul to the highest bidder. She does not care that everyone can see that her primary concern for her infant is his exploitation potential.
But anyway, after a weekend of being on the receiving end of outrage calling her out for her lies, she has announced that America needs more civility…
There are many disturbing details in the current bill that Washington is trying to rush through Congress, but we must stick to a discussion of the issues and not get sidetracked by tactics that can be accused of leading to intimidation or harassment. Such tactics diminish our nation’s civil discourse which we need now more than ever because the fine print in this outrageous health care proposal must be understood clearly and not get lost in conscientious voters’ passion to want to make elected officials hear what we are saying. Let’s not give the proponents of nationalized health care any reason to criticize us.
Sarah, you are gonna burn in Hell. Oh, I forgot. You were chosen by god to do this, and you have been exempted from all laws, rules, and sins.
But most of all, she’s got her health care. You losers can let the death panels of the insurance companies pull the plugs on your parents and disabled children because they are too expensive to bother saving.
There is no question now as to the citizenship of Barack Obama. Not only has he admitted it himself that he was born on Krypton, but now we have documentation, that “certificate of live birth” that Oily Teats was telling us any person can create for any child with no corroboration.
