“I don’t care if you’ve got two holes in your heart… we won’t pay until you have a stroke! That’s final! We’re keeping down costs so that our CEO can go to Palm Springs this winter for their health!” THIS is what you support if you vote for the Tea Party.
They have common themes. Almost all attempt to link Republican opponents to the health insurance industry. They focus on benefits already in effect, such as protection for children against being denied coverage because of medical problems, and some use constituents in cameo appearances. A template of sorts is an ad by embattled Senator Russell Feingold (D-WI), first aired around the beginning of the month. It hits all the themes, and finishes with constituents telling his opponent businessman Ron Johnson, “Hands off my health care”.
The Tea Party mantra that there’s a groundswell against “Obamacare” doesn’t stand up to the facts. Note well that the GOP refuses to tell you how much of their campaign war chest is coming from HMOs and insurance companies. They not only wish a return to the status quo ante, they wish to turn over our healthcare system to these entrepreneurial bloodsuckers. The USA has had the steepest rise in healthcare costs due to HMO shenanigans, and the rise in life expectancy in the USA is the lowest amongst developed states (hell, Cuba does better… and that’s per the CIA!). They don’t care if HMO death panels deny payment for needed surgery, refuse to cover sick people, or put limits on lifetime care. Why, we have to protect the profits of the rich! We have to protect the “rights” of the oligarchs! We have to “reduce the size of government”.
You have a stark choice this November… vote for the Tea Party, and allow the corporations an untrammelled opportunity to rape America and its people… or, vote against them. Don’t be fooled by the Tea Party’s religious rhetoric or its “patriotic” caterwauling.
Here’s what the Scriptures have to say on the matter:
And the King shall answer and say unto them, “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me”.
Gospel according to St Matthew 25.40
He will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me”.
Gospel according to St Matthew 25.45
He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honours God.
Let’s keep it simple. The greed and cupidity of the Tea Party is devilish, and its smarmy “religious” rhetoric compounds their evil, to speak frankly. You see, whenever they sentence someone to death or crank health by denying treatment… you pull the plug, if you vote for the Tea Party. There’s no way around it… if you support this evil… the muck of such inhumanity shall cover you, that’s the long and short of it. There’s no “nice” way of putting it… you can embrace a Satanic worship of the Almighty Dollar (contravening “Thou shalt have no other gods before Me”), or you can support a God-pleasing care for your fellow man (you ARE your brother’s keeper). That’s all there is to say.
Vote AGAINST the Tea Party in November… your life DOES depend on it!
