Now, the Democrats have a different plan. The Democrats say that if you have health insurance, we’re going to make it better. If you don’t have health insurance, we’re going to provide it to you. If you can’t afford health insurance, then we’ll help you to afford health insurance.
So, America gets to decide. Do you want the Democratic plan or do you want the Republican plan? Remember, the Republican plan: Don’t get sick. And if you do get sick, die quickly.
Bravo! Well said.
The Republicans, for whom chutzpah is a way of life, are blubbering about this lack of civility. That looks pretty rich in the light of this montage, from yesterday’s Rahcel Maddow show:
REP. GINNY BROWN-WAITE ®, FLORIDA (July 21): Last week, Democrats released a health care bill which essentially said to America’s seniors:
REP. STEVE KING ®, IOWA (July 15): They’re going to save money by rationing care, getting you in a long line. Places like Canada, United Kingdom and Europe, people die when they’re line.
REP. LOUIE GOHMERT ®, TEXAS (July 15): One in five people have to die because they went to socialized medicine.
REP. PAUL BROWN ®, GEORGIA (July 10): This program of government option is being touted as being this panacea, the savior of allowing people to have quality health care, at an affordable price is going to kill people.
REP. VIRGINIA FOXX ®, NORTH CAROLINA: Republicans have a better solution that won’t put the government in charge of people’s health care and is pro-life because it will not put seniors in a position of being put to death by their government.
BROWN: A lot of people are going to die.
GOHMERT: I would hate to think that among five women, one of them is going to die because we go to socialized care.
REP. MICHELE BACHMANN ®, MINNESOTA (July 27): The president’s advisor, Dr. Emanuel, says medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled. So watch out if you’re disabled.
Looks like the civility ship has sailed.
We need a thousand more Democrats like Alan Grayson and Barney Frank. Instead we’re stuck largely with Blue Dogs and wimps.
