Health Scare Again


Once again, the President tries to use the bully pulpit to push his unpopular Health care plan down the throat of the unwilling.  But many of the top Senators are not sure that this is a good idea.  The thought of dismissing 48% of the people does not sit well with them, considering that many of them are from moderate States are up for reelection next year, tends to give them pause.

“It’s not going to pass,” said Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., a member of the bipartisan “Gang of Six” negotiating team trying to work out a compromise on the Senate Finance Committee. “The only thing that has a prospect of passing is what is happening in the Senate, in the Finance Committee, where three Democrats and three Republicans have been given the responsibility to come up with a proposal for our colleagues. And the proposal that we are developing is fully paid for.”

The first problem is that we can’t pay for it.  The second problem is that there isn’t actually a crisis, not something that will cause us to lose the war, (oh wait, they just want to give up on the whole war thing), and no more people are going to die today then tomorrow with or without reform.

Please a crisis, if, and I do mean IF, we accept the 47 million people don’t have insurance who cares?  There are less people than that in Canada and they can’t run a workable system there.  What the heck, 6 month’s to see a specialist?  Is that what we really want?

Do we want the people that can’t even run health care like medicare and medicaid without huge fraud and abuse to essentially take over that part of our economy and let it run as well as, let’s say the Post Office?

My friends, there is simply no way there is enough support of the American people to have any of this pass, let alone a Government run option.  Will something that the President can claim victory on pass?  Of that I have no doubt, even if nothing even close to what he wants does pass.  Because the President is the best since Reagan of smooth talking the press.  The real difference between them is the press wasn’t as supportive of Reagan, they are in the can for Obama.

Axelrod said;   “He, (the President), continues to advocate it. And I’m not willing to accept that it’s not going to be in the final package”, when asked about the public option.

Bet you’re glad to know what you want means nothing to the White House and the Congress, except to the extent that some members are up for reelection.  This is the major reason that this is a “crisis”.  The longer it takes, the closer to the new year it gets and the more likely you are to remember who voted for something you didn’t want.

A pleasing statement by the Administration says that they don’t believe that Rep Joe Wilson’s “you lie”, (which in fact was true), was not racially motivated as claimed by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd.  “Dowd wrote that Wilson “clearly did not like being lectured and even rebuked by the brainy black president presiding over the majestic chamber.”

The one thing that never ceases to amaze me about liberals, is how fast the , “you aren’t good enough to get by on your own without our help”, crowd is to call anyone else a racist.  How much more racist can you get than to tell a race of people that “if you elect me I will steal other peoples money and give it to you because you are smart or strong enough to get by without the Government’s help”?

I know, now I am a racist and unfeeling because I happen to think that if anyone applies their talents to at least getting by, will in this Country.  Unlike others I have been in, and that has been a few let me tell you.

“I don’t think the president believes that people are upset because of the color of his skin,” said Robert Gibbs.  I give Gibbs credit for this.  He, of course, doesn’t want to say that people are upset with socialism, not race,  but I do give him credit for not jumping on the race card band wagon.

Most recently, Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., was quoted in early September saying that “bias” and “prejudice” are behind a lot of the public opposition to health care reform.  To Rep. Rangel I say “shut up”, at least until you pay your back taxes.  Taxation without representation?  How about representation that don’t pay taxes?

ACORN wants to sue the world at large, or at least Fox, James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles for filming some of their employees being very bad.  Tax fraud, loan fraud, enough that they fired the employees, but somehow it is the fault of the film makers and Fox for airing it.

This is about as hysterical as Van Jones complaining that his own words, caught on uTube, were used against him.  That it was a conspiracy against and he would bow out so as to not hurt the President.   The left just hates it when what they say and do comes back to haunt them, and then try and make it sound like it is the fault of Conservatives

Are you still voting for these people in 2010?  I say if they are now in, vote them out.  No Party, no matter, just kick them out.  Trust me you will be sending a message that WILL strike a chord within both parties.

    Health Care? Well….four docs and two nurses couldn’t figure out a simple DNR and no ‘extreme measures’ to be taken, so I don’t know why anyone thinks our government is going to be able to write a health care bill with so many more involved in the writing of. NOW, I am firmly in the reasonable group, who thinks that tort reform should be the first order of business. Once that is taken off the table, and ‘fixed’, then the health care probs can be addressed. As long as that is not addressed, everyone needs Cap on their cell phone, PUSH ONE FOR EMERGENCY CALL. What a mess! I am furious that ‘they’ think the citizen is so stupid, we can’t figure that simple thing out! oh well…and so it goes in the land of “As the Government Turns”, starring nefarious scoundrels for sure! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
    They have to include “press two for English”…lol

    It was amazing when our new prez didn’t take advantage of his heritage on both sides, hum? Too bad he thought he had to pick, instead of embracing it all. lol 🙂

  3. Gini Says:

    I would just ditto Caps comment…yep. lol 🙂
    I try and never argue with cap. He’s much too smart for me.

    This, and Ali’s, blog would be a far less informed, and more sterile, place if you did not post, chas, notwithstanding the celebrated Dr. Sowell.
    You are way more far than kind Sir. We miss you when other duties call you away.


  5. Eileen Says:

    I did that last election and will again.
    You and me sweetie.


  6. capmotion Says:

    I, of course, agree fully with my alter-ego chas [you never see both of us in the same room together, remember], and I would cite everyone to an interesting item penned by my long-time hero Thomas Sowell, than whom there is no one more enlightened on American economic politics. Dr. Sowell likens the fable of the dog and the bone and the reflection to what this health care debate, and its likely outcome, is all about.

    I couldn’t think of a better analogy cap. Dr. Sowell is one of the guys who make me wonder why I bother to write anything.

    Im sick of this, everytime the numbers go down,
    or and they want to push something through,
    they use the race card,
    its not working, because the American people are not racist,
    maybe the people talking about race….. are the racist?
    Great post Chas.
    You would think that once a, at least, half black man got elected it would get better. I sure didn’t expect it to get worse. And even worse than that, it is the same people that said if we didn’t vote for him made us racist that keep fanning the fire.


  8. Dave Says:

    Ok, And this is why some of my friends do not want to move back to the States right now! The race thing is getting really old and tired. Hopefully some of the journalists will knock it off. Doesn’t help matters any. Some of my Dem friends aren’t too happy with the way things are going right now.
    A lot of people feel like that Dave. Thus the quickest plunge of popularity of a President since they started keep the stat.
