Zounds! GOP Attempt to Torpedo Healthcare Reform More Expensive than the Reform!

Filed under: politics,USA — 01varvara @ 00.00

This is the religiosity of Boeher, McConnell, Limbaugh, Palin, et al… MONEY is their god… their latest stance on healthcare proves it…


Read this:


Note this:

In a preliminary estimate, the CBO said repealing the healthcare overhaul would increase the federal budget deficit by roughly 145 billion USD (4.47 trillion Roubles 111.5 billion Euros 93.8 billion UK Pounds) by 2019. That figure would rise to about 230 billion USD (7.09 trillion Roubles 176.9 billion Euros 148.8 billion UK Pounds) by 2021, the CBO said.

Boehner and McConnell are nothing but handsomely-paid shills for the HMOs… that’s the only reason that they’re introducing “repeal”. They don’t give a rat’s ass for anyone but themselves, as the CBO figures reveal. It has NOTHING to do with the deficit… it has everything to do with maintaining the obscene profits of the HMOs, insurance companies, and ambulance-chasing lawyers. Ask most doctors or most hospital administrators, and you’ll find that they support single-payer healthcare and caps on punitive damages. After all, the EU spends 8 percent of its combined GDP on healthcare and covers everyone… the USA spends 17 percent, and the working poor receive no coverage at all. Looks like there’s a whole lot of profit-taking going on… we’re paying double what we should so that HMO execs and investors can golf in Palm Springs in December.

John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are unpatriotic SOBs who only care for the profits of the oligarch class… if there were justice in this world, the ordinary Joes and Janes of America would impale them on the White House fence (I’m NOT threatening… I’m describing… quite a different animal). There’s a good side to all of this… their oligarchic backers will jazz the GOP into taking such extremist positions that the Senate will checkmate them and President Obama will veto them, if he must. It’ll reveal these godless grasping bastards in all their “glory”… it’ll serve a good purpose.

Anthony Nelson and John Whiteford are shills for the extremist right. So are Jonas Paffhausen, Rod Dreher, and Terrence Mattingly. In Russia, His Nibs would smack them down for besmirching the Church by their dalliance with such extremist money-worshipping wingnuts. The Church doesn’t support Neoliberalism (“conservatism”), no, not in the least. Now, these figures show that the GOP was lying all along about deficit reduction… all they really care about is HMO profits.

You know what to do… there’s an election in 2012, isn’t there?
