Rabid Reich-Wingers and Health Care Reform.
Edited on Wed Aug-12-09 08:12 PM by and-justice-for-all
These people do not seem to know what they are mad about. They are 'claiming' to be against a NHS in the states, but you never hear them crying about: Medicaid, Medicare, Social Services, Police or Fire Departments or even those SOCIALIZED roads they drive on every day.

No, these 'protesters' are distraught over the fact that the President is BLACK. They are also dealing with the fact that they are a minority and have always been a minority in this country, contrary to what the M$M tells us.

The major false propaganda by the likes of Faux News, Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, Coulter and a slew of NeoFascist websites like Free Republic and Drudge, along with the insurance and medical industry supporters, who continuously feed people the nonsense and lies about the reform are the source of the so called 'protest' by a small minority.

You can easily tell that people do not know what they are talking about from the statements made by rabid Reich-wing shrills.

"I don't want the Government to run my health care." So, why are you on medicare/caid?

"I do not want the Government bureaucracy involved in what is covered and what is not" or "the Government will ration care" Even though your insurance company, if you can afford insurance, already does exactly that. Rations your care by deciding what is and what is not covered and how much they will pay. Either it is covered or you pay for the treatment all out of pocket or you go without.

"No socialism in America" Well, Socialism is already in America, has been for sometime and Socialism is not Communism, which is the definition I hear from people about Socialism, clearly demonstrating they have no idea what they are talking about. They do not realize that they participate in Socialism everyday: from the roads they drive on, to Medicaid/Medicare, the VA, all social services, any government program, Police and Fire Departments.

"Who is going to pay for it." and "The debt..." well, we are all going to pay for it, nothing is free, even here in the free world. Which I have not issue with, because I understand that and as long as I have access to health care without having to worry about, I do not mind. repubicans got their wars and now we want health care. The debt was started by bush, who as he left office, left us a $1 trillion dollar deficit, but you do not hear those people screaming against that. The national deficit will never be repaid, no matter what, Bush started us down this road and he did so for what? Wars that could never be won, tax cuts for people who do not need them. What part of Bush's trillion dollars did you get?? I got dust and occupations I did not want.

So if Obama wants to rack up more debt to give me health care..I say THAT'S FANTASTIC!!!

Basically, anything that is not held by a private entity and paid for with our tax money, is Socialism.

The hostility at town halls does not work in their favor either. It does not help to be mad about something if you do not understand what it is your mad about, which is very much the case. How many have actually read the bill versus those following orders from their dark overlords Limbaugh, Hannity, O'reilly...etc?? looks like ZERO to me.

America needs this reform. There are millions of people who do not have access to health care simply because they can not afford it. Health care is a right and not a privilege and every one should have access to health care period.

Great post! I am a veteran. My health care is government run! And guess what, big medical companies are adopting the software that was developed for the VA. It's open source, so they adap it and try to calim it as their own!

2. The right-wing makes me laugh
For the exact reasons you've described. And it's incredible how so many Americans believe them.
