Liberal Logic

Sunday, September 13th, 2009

Liberal democrats who are trying to shove socialized medicine down the throats of the American people tell us that it will be “paid for” by eliminating at least $500 billion is “waste and fraud” in Medicaid and other government run health care systems already in place.

Let’s review this as rational adults. First, if the current government health care programs have $500 Billion in “waste and fraud”, how can any rational being decide that vastly increasing the government’s role in health care is a good idea?

Second, wouldn’t the first rational step be to clean up and recover that $500 Billion in “waste and fraud” in the current government systems in order to gain the trust of the American people before the federal government tries to take over 7% of the US economy?

Our Dear Leader and the so-called democrat “leadership” in Congress are doing neither of these.  Instead, they have tried to rush socialized medicine through the House and the Senate as quickly as possible, before the American people would have a chance to see what was being done to them.  Fortunately for the American people, that failed.

Grass roots opposition directly from the American people appears to have killed that 1000 page house bill that had so much wrong with it. That was a win for the American people and a loss for the far left extremist democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

New political term: Racer

Racer: (rā’sər) n. Person who makes false claims of racism in order to avoid answering legitimate arguments.

Update: Example: Maureen Dowd, Racer.  Why let the fact that Joe Wilson was right, and our Dear Leader was wrong, get in the way of thoughtless smear.
