When the socialist serpents speak, do not be mesmerized by the hypnotic movements of their lips.. The “health scare” debacle has been the recipient of unprecedented attention from the left of late. Due to the unprecedented theft of middle class tax dollars and the unprecedented intrusion of “Big Brother” Obama and his marionettes, this measure of attention seems to be the appropriate amount of overkill that the leftists normally apply to their beloved Bolshevism.
Their desperation has now displayed itself within the liberal lexicon. According to two of the worst of the liberal lunatics, Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman (L-Fl) the only thing holding the health care scam back is a nifty new moniker. (Mind you, they also believe that the only thing holding back “public education” is a “lack of funding”.. Do you detect a pattern of carcinogenic denial here?) So both of the Bolshevik battle-axes decided to try their choices upon some of those in Florida who will soon be exterminated and transformed into “collectivist compost” under the Obama “Soylent Green” health scare “plan”..
According to “Pelosi: Health care ‘public option’ needs new name”(Breitbart), Pelosi likes the “consumer option” and Wasserman likes the “competitive option”. The lame attempts at Demokratic diversion aside, it is hard to believe that these two actually hold positions of responsibility within the collectivist government. The name isn’t what has the American public enraged, it is the truth that has slowly been squeezed out of the socialists precarious plan.. Truth be told, the “consumer” will be decimated by the liberals and “competitive” isn’t even a part of the liberal nomenclature. When “equality of outcome” and “fairness” are your goals, “competition” isn’t allowed.. Yet another in the unending cavalcade of liberal lies..
To both, the “new terminology might get them past any lingering doubts..” If we adopt the dystrophic Demokrats way of “thinking”, Hitler should have just called the “Final Solution” something a bit more happy-go-lucky or whimsical, then no one would have ever cared about the Holocaust and the reality behind it.. These “lingering doubts” have something to do with the “fuzzy math” surrounding this gibberish and the overt socialism that envelopes it. Several liberals, displaying the trademark sanity that they are known for, also believe that these “lingering doubts” have something to do with the “racism” that invades every crack and crevice of those who disagree with Obama..
Pelosi had the nerve to say out loud, “There’s got to be a better name for this..” Might I suggest: “The Grand Delusion”? “When people think of the public option, public is being misrepresented, that this is being paid for with public dollars..” The Wrinkled Relic is both right and wrong. The public IS “being misrepresented”. It is “being misrepresented” by today’s liberal vermin who understand the Russians need to dismantle the middle class in order to install communism back in the early 1900’s. It is “being misrepresented” by the leftists who refuse to honestly deal with the American public who are justifiably outraged over this “public option.”
This IS being paid for with “public dollars”. The proof? The proof comes just a few sentences later straight from the horses mouth..literally. “Pelosi said that was a misconception and that any taxpayer money used to start up the public option would be repaid..” Here the socialist Seabiscuit actually admits that tax money will fund this “public option”. Again, yet another socialist panacea that will be paid for by the middle class of the United States and all that the Demokrats want to do is change the name.. Call it “public dollars”, call it “garnered otherwise undirected revenues”, I choose to call it what it is, a targeted, declared war by the left upon the middle class of the United States.
Where were Pelosi and Wasserman doing their communist crooning? Sunrise Florida. You remember Florida, right? The state where everyone seemed to vote incorrectly back in 200 and 2004? The place with all of those “pregnant chads” and “hanging chads” where no one seemed to be able to understand all of those confusing “votin’ machines”? Looks like everybody down there got good and smart in 2008 as no one from the left offered up any of their coquettish complaints in either Florida or Ohio in 2008..
The idea that this scam is going to cost well over a trillion dollars (“House health care bill over $1 trillion for decade” apnews myway) which is “significantly higher than the target Obama has set”, “a total that underestimates the bill’s true cost by $150 billion or more”, none of this matters.. Lets just “change” the name..
Never mind that the Obama nonsense started at $787 billion, then the CBO made it $871 billion, then “last month, Obama said in a nationally televised address before a joint session of Congress that he preferred a package with a price tag of around $900 billion..”, now we are at $1 trillion dollars in Marxist Monopoly money to be printed by Obama and Geithner.. Don’t forget the kicker, Pelosi said that this “will not add a dime to the (Obama) deficit..” She may be right in the typically liberal abstract way. A trillion dollars is not a dime..
Pelosi also said that “such an option would ultimately drive down government health care costs..” How much misery does the American taxpayer have to suffer through before she gets around to this “ultimately” business? “Government health care”, Medicaid and Medicare as just TWO governmental examples, have done more than their fair share of “driving up health care costs” already, do you really believe that adding EVEN MORE governmental health care will EVER “drive down costs”? When it comes to the liberals and “driving” down ANY cost, it will have the same effect on your pocketbook as “driving” around Chappaquiddick in the back seat of Dead Ted’s car..
Wasserman was excited about the latest pull the wool over your eyes shenanigans of the left. “I think she is going to go up and test-drive it when she gets back to Washington, I think it might stick..” Sorry Deb, I’m going to “change” one of the consonants. I think it might “stink”..
When it comes to the liberals and all of their vacuous promises of “cutting costs”, keep in mind that Pelosi will be going back to Washington in her personal 757, one that she demanded that the taxpayers pay for as soon as she landed the Speakers job. Each trip in her personal jet costs the taxpayers $60,000. Based upon her “need” to fly home every week alone, Pelosi is costing the American taxpayer $480,000.00 a month and she will easily spend $5,760,000.00 a year based upon these numbers alone. This does not count the collateral costs of her little adventures as she wings her way across the nation playing socialist scrabble with seniors in Florida..
Public options, “competitive options”, “consumer options”.. To those of us stuck footing the bill for the leftist’s Marxist meddling, the illegal aliens and the mendicants, it is “socialized medicine” by any other name..
