DUmmies Suddenly Discover ReidCare is a SCAM
Remember all the excitement over the "unveiling" of ReidCare in the Senate a few days ago? Harry Reid came as close to gleeful as he ever gets (which means a bit less gloomy than usual) when he announced his new "consensus" healthcare bill which entails expanding MediCare coverage to folks as young as 55? He made it appear that there was a new momentum on a health bill. Only one problem. The Associated Press revealed that ReidCare contains rationing. So if you need end of life care, forget it. Too expensive. This was the argument against the death panels that conservatives made a few months ago but were mocked for being paranoid...even though they were right. So now the DUmmies have discovered that ReidCare is nothing more than a SCAM to get a health bill to Obama to sign before he gives the State of the Union speech in January. Yes, it is no longer a matter of having a well thought out health care bill through Congress. It is all about having Obama sign a health bill into law as a feather in his cap before the state of the union speech. And now that the DUmmies have discovered what a scam ReidCare is, they are enraged as you can see in this THREAD, "The arrogance of allowing 'annual limits' on health care...." So let us now watch the DUmmies all upset about being scammed once again in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, still trying to figure out how someone as gloomy and grumpy as Harry Reid ever got as far in politics as he did, is in the [barackets]:
The arrogance of allowing "annual limits" on health care....
[Hope and Spare Change.]
It is stupefying. It is mind-blowing. Surely the Senate knew someone would notice that they were stripping the lifeline for critically ill patients, hiding it deep down in the bill.
[Welcome to the wonderful world of "transparency."]
I feel like saying how dare they do this...but it would be a silly thing to say. They dare because they can, because they know they will get away with it.
[Toss anything at the wall just so The One can claim a health care victory by the time of his State of the Union speech.]
The last few days I have read posts about how nearly all Democrats support Obama, how only a pathetic little few dare not.
[We few. We pathetic few.]
It is not Obama I am concerned about. He has the oratorical ability to pull it off and come out in 2012 with flying colors.
It is another matter how he would lose the majority in congress just because of the endless ways they jerk around those of us who gave them a majority.
[And the biggest of the jerks are the DUmmies.]
Those who are very ill, those with the most medical bills will pay dearly for that hidden clause that the Senate in its arrogance allowed to stay in there.
[I wonder if this DUmmie was laughing at conservatives last summer for daring to suggest that ObamaCare would have death panels to handle the rationing problem? And now on to the other DUmmies...]
I thought the whole f&cking point was to protect people from catastrophic bills due to having a major life threatening disease. What in the f*ck are we doing?
[Proving the right RIGHT when they claimed last summer that ObamaCare would lead to death panels.]
I do not even pretend to know what they are doing. I don't think even they know what they are doing.
[But surely Joe Biden is competent?]
This is just one more reason why we need Universal Single Payer health care!
[For the DUmmies, all roads lead to socialized medicine.]
Can you imagine what cancer patients would face? It is mind-boggling.
[They would face Death Panels...just as EVIL rightwingers have been saying all along.]
In the 2010 primaries, I will NOT vote for an incumbent. In the general election, I will NOT vote for an incumbent. It does not matter to me if he or she is a Democrat, Republican, Unitarian, or Vegan - it is time for the office holders to be replaced with a fresh crop of weasels. The current crop has feasted in the henhouse long enough.
[GASP! You would even vote against incumbent Wiccans and Gaians?]
WHO put this limit in this bill? I would like the names, please. I would like the right to face her sentencers.
[Who put the limits in ReidCare? One clue would be the first syllable of ReidCare.]
Hill sources explain that this was inserted because CBO said premiums would "go through the roof" if insurers couldn't cap benefits.
[Without the limits the bill would add greatly to an already massive deficit. We are in multi-trillion dollar deficit territory nowadays. And the Chinese who own much of the debt are ticked off bigtime.]
I'm sure they are clueless, and also probably don't care if any of us live or die.
[Don't worry. ACORN will make sure that you still vote after death.]
Harry Reid should be drawn and quartered for trying to sneak this through a 2,000 page bill.
[So how is that transparency thing working out for you?]
Which is exactly why we need Single Payer, Universal Health Care for all.
[As stated upthread, all roads lead to socialized medicine for the DUmmies.]
The plan is: "Don't get sick, if you do, you will die because we aint payin JACK!"
[Perhaps its time for Alan Grayson to revise his cardboard sign. It's the DEMOCRATS doing this.]
