Senator Kirsten Gillibrand became the latest Democratic Senator to signal support for the upcoming “Medicare for All” bill due to be released on Wednesday. Senator Gillibrand joins other far Left Senators Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris in planning to drag America into the hell that is socialism by turning over around one-sixth of our economy to morons and bankrupting the country. Some of you may object to the term moron, but I would argue that it might not be critical enough to indicate what a disaster this would be for our lives.
Dear Jeff Flake – There is No Such Thing as a Globalist, Neocron, Big Government, Open Borders Advocating Conservative
Jeff Flake’s new book is not even out and I already hate it. In most cases, a Rino writing a book ahead of a reelection campaign would have drawn zero reaction from me. However, Jeff Flake who has always been a moderate, who leans either left or right with the frequency of a weathervane, trying to speak on behalf of Conservatives is laughable and insulting.
Here is the plain and simple truth for Republicans and Conservatives alike; you are going to get next to no help from Democrats making health care better. Despite John McCain’s calls for bipartisanship, no Democrats are going to come to the table in any serious fashion as long as any one of the sacred cows in the entitlement family is on the table. You don’t have to take my word for this when you can hear it from the batty senile horse’s mouth on Fox News Sunday.
It is a simple fact that Obamacare is not working for most of America. The government which moves at glacial speeds and with ponderous inefficiency should be kept as far away as possible from health care, but now the Democrats are declaring that the next step is a single payer healthcare system. Obamacare took a system that was working well for the majority of citizens, added massive government controls and regulations to insure 30 million people. In the end, they only succeeded in adding 12 million people to the rolls and FUBARed coverage for the rest of us. The Democrats who created this mess by adding government now believe the way to fix it… add more government.
I must give credit where it is due as The Daily Caller has been the one media outlet to consistently report on this story and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s bizarre behavior as it relates to this case. When I say strange behavior, I am not using that word hyperbolically, I mean as each layer of the story gets peeled back it becomes another “WTH” moment in a “WTF” story. Let’s recap some of the odd parts of this story that the media refuses to report…
There are four innocuous little words that when used together in a sentence always raise my hackles; “For the greater good”. Everything Hitler did was “for the greater good” and it resulted in the deaths of 50 million people. Every Communist regime has always been based on the concept of being “for the greater good” and in the 20th century alone they killed 94 million people across the planet. We can observe the results of the Venezuelan “for the greater good” experiment in real time where significant portions of the population are starving and they are being brutalized for speaking out in protest. It seems to me that these four inoffensive words, instead of being the harbinger of equity and fairness have been at the root of more human misery and suffering than any others in our history.
There is nothing better than to have the smug “writers” at HuffPo arrogantly lecture us common folk on the virtues of compassion. Of course, the HuffPo definition of compassion means that either you completely agree with their designated big government solution to solving any societal ill or you are just a greedy soul sucking Conservative that likes to fashion cereal bowls out of the skulls of children and the elderly.
Getting lucky with a lottery ticket usually makes one feel like a winner… that is of course unless you live in Illinois where it is very likely that the state will once again be handing out IOUs instead of money when people win. For the residents of Illinois this is old news as they went through this last year for around six months when the state’s budget crisis forced the state to stop payments to lottery winners temporarily until a short-term budget deal could be hammered out and as the Daily Herald reports, “Illinois Lottery winners might — again — face the prospects of not being paid their jackpots in a timely manner if no spending deal is struck by the end of the month.”
Many on the political Left have been calling this a lack of world leadership from the U.S. Just because you are standing in front of the group all moving in the same direction does not make you a leader. A leader is going to make the unpopular tough calls for the people he leads. This is exactly what the President did. He weighed the costs, trillions stripped from our economy and millions of jobs lost, versus the predicted benefit, the most optimistic projections call for a statistically insignificant decrease in projected temperature increases and made the choice that benefited American more in the long run.
Make no mistake there is only one party responsible for Greece’s debt, which stands about 180% of annual total output, the people of Greece are responsible. The bulk of this debt was accumulated by allowing the government to grow unchecked and without cause.
