There Limbaugh Goes Again

Why does Rush Limbaugh want to deprive people of decent healthcare? He was railing against Obama again today about how Obama is pressuring healthcare people and companies into concessions which, from their POV will hopefully preclude greater pressure and legislation later. Limbaugh called them fools. He said they're only doing it because they're scared. He says Obama is muscling them into submission.


Now I hate Obama as much as anyone, but the tactics he's employing to get his agenda passed as nothing short of admirable, presuming they don't lead to some form of totalitarianism. His tactics are exactly what I expected Bush to do with his Republican majority, but Republicans in general, and Bush in particular, were so amazingly weak and unconcerned that they did virtually nothing.

Limbaugh cited the 50 million figure the Dems claim is the number of people who lack health insurance. He claimed the figure was not true. He's probably right. So how many are there, Rush? Pick a number. Whatever it is, that's the amount of people who are is serious jeopardy that you and Bush and the Republicans are responsible for.

One statistic we know for sure is that fifty percent of people who file for bankruptcy do so because of overwhelming healthcare costs. many of these people (again, pick a percentage) will be ruined forever because they were unlucky enough to get sick or hurt. And many of their health problems weren't even catastrophic – except to their financial health.

And you simply don't care. You've got yours. Bush certainly has his. I don't trust Obama and the Dems to do anything right, but they're doing what you and Bush and the Republicans never did – i.e. something.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    Hopefully, Obama will get it through. It's long overdue. No-one should have to live with the threat of health bankruptcy hanging over their head all their lives. More so, in the richest country in the world.
