“Staged” Activism

The Democrats can suck my big toe.

These protesters at the health care town halls are not minions of some evil conspiracy. They are regular citizens who are ticked about the concept of government-run health care.

Agree or disagree with their politics, but to say they don’t have a right to vocalize their beliefs is un-American. The Democrats have been planting questions for town halls, sending their own angry constituents, etc. for years. During the campaign that was their main tool.

It’s such a despicable double standard they’re applying.

If people don’t get loud and voice their objections, this health care ship is going to sail and we’ll NEVER be able to undo it. That’s why people are bent out of shape over it.

The Democrats did the same kind of demonization when the fair tax people held their tea parties. These were not fringe lunatics or anti-American protesters. They weren’t even anti-Obama protesters. They were anti-tax protesters. They were simply people who didn’t want to be taxed in order to bail out corporations… something the Democrats decided to do IN SPITE of the objections of the majority of Americans.

Private corporate takeovers were not something devised by the Bush people… that was ALL Obama.

That’s why it’s not acceptable to question. You can protest anything so long as it wasn’t Obama’s idea or important agenda point.

Obama’s health care reform is a giant cluster@#$@ that needs to be killed before it becomes law. We do not need the Borg running our lives.

    OK, somebody educate me here … isn’t Medicare a government health insurance plan? I’m confused!

    Yep, and you can choose to use private insurance if you want to. Under the Obama plan they’ll be doing away with private insurance so no one will have a choice. Besides…I’m too young for Medicare.

    Oh yeah…Medicare is also rumored to be bankrupt.

    DK,

    To the best of my knowledge, Medicare and Medicaid are both government-run programs. Two of the largest entitlement programs we have in this country, even more so than Social Security and Welfare. These are all socialist programs but they exist in a modified capitalist society. Our tax dollars help to pay for prescription drugs, visits to the doctor, etc. The groups that benefits the most from these programs are the elderly and the poor. This is all being explained in simple terms of course but you get the idea.

    What warcrygirl said about Medicare is entirely true. This program is suffering due to the economic downturn. The bigger danger involved with this program is how much it’ll cost tax-paying Americans to keep it going. As time moves on, people in this country keep living longer lives. Great, right? Well, not necessarily. I think right now the costs of this program alone are approximately 4% of our GDP. As the older generations increase in numbers so will the percentage. Eventually, if current trends stay the same, Medicare will bankrupt our country.

    There’s a very telling government report you all should read:
    http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/TRSUM/index.html

    “Projected long run program costs are not sustainable under current program parameters.”

    My suggestion? Continue to oppose ANY legislation from the current administration that intends to “spread the wealth.” I voted for Obama but I certainly don’t approve of his aggressive socialist agenda. Obamacare has little to do with real reform of health care and more to do with expanding government, entitlements and liberal ideology.
