The health care debate seems to be going all over the map lately, and the more I read about the repeal movement, the more I realize one thing:
Present day Republicans and Tea Party Senators are straight up liars.
Look, there’s no reason to repeal the whole bill. When it goes to the Supreme Court, it won’t be repealed in wholesale anyway. Let’s repeal the mandidate and a few stupid additions that have nothing to do with improving health care. Stop saying we have to throw the entire thing away to make it work. That’s a lie.
However, people like Rand Paul and Boener are spouting absolute nonsense about what the facts are. People aren’t upset that it cleans up Medicare, so let’s just stop lying about that. There are no death panels. It does not raise prescription costs. It does not increase budget spending by 10%. Stop lying about those things. Just admit it – the lobbyists from the insurance world are pushing you to kill this thing before it hurts their profits, and you are trying to make them happy (somewhat).
Rand Paul is the worst. I don’t know why anyone listens to him – he’s literally a fucking wacko. The country can’t run on a gold standard, the health care bill will not steal your children, and climate change and/or evolution are not myths. We do not need more GOD in government. Everything that comes out of his mouth is tainted by his inability to recognize reality.
