I’m going to try to leave politics out of this, but DC politics is a large part of this problem. My outrage is more with the press than anyone in DC. The last line of that article reads: “So accuse Obama of lying about health-care reform — but understand the simple underlying reality: we can’t handle the truth”
Since when is it OK for the Fourth Estate to qualify ANY government official telling an outright lie to sell a gov’t program because “The Little People” are “too immature” to understand the truth.” How DARE they?!
The current “Blame the Victim” meme among both DC and the MSM is disgusting and outrageous. I bet Richard Nixon is twisting in his grave wishing the press was equally generous to him, and before anyone starts accusing me of thinking highly of Nixon, I assure you that I found HIS lying contemptible (and still do).
The media is also complicit in imposing a HUGE guilt trip on the public by suggesting that anyone who is reeling from sticker shock or raising hell about this just “doesn’t want to end in-equality” or “help the less fortunate have medical insurance”. I know people who now have to spend far more than they can afford just to have a policy that “conforms to the ACA mandate”, even if it means paying for services they have absolutely no use for or will ever need. A 300% hike in premiums? Seriously?!
Washington should be protecting the middle class, not making their lives substantially harder. Imagine if the government had instead mandated that rather be forced to buy healthcare plans that THEY get to choose for us we should be forced to donate several thousand dollars a year so that the less fortunate can have medical insurance.
I’ll bet the press would quickly change their tune about “ending inequality and doing what’s good for the country”
Couldn’t have said it nearly as well. At some point, the press corporations are going to have to sign on to AHA. Those waivers for unions and others will only last so long. The bottom line is that they will be forced into it because this trainwreck is not going to eat 1/6 of the economy, but much more.
Nope, DWS is a jew and a zionist, her job is to keep the US moderate jews, most of whom are democrats, on board with the program of Eretz Israel. And it’s a job she’s good at: she’s one of the biggest fundraisers out there. She’ll be around a lot freaking longer than Obama and one is sure she knows it.
