Now that SCOTUS has ruled in favor of insurance companies getting richer, with a few pathetic but still useful and needed bones tossed to us peasants, the Rethugs and their allies are back to their political jihad and disinformation campaigns.
The reality is that so called Obamacare was never very revolutionary- its not even a mini band-aid over a sucking chest wound. It does nothing for those who are too poor to afford insurance- or for that matter- those who already have insurance but with a deductble so high that they can't afford to seek medical care. It does nothing to guaranty acccess to AFFORDABLE health care, unlike a single payer plan- such as Medicare, which the teabaggers are always screaming for the government to leave alone....
Congress members and their families have an absolutely wonderful health plan. But its government run- so it always amazes me that the rightwingnuts- basically almost every Republican there - haven't run screaming into the thorn bushes to escape the dasdardly socialistic, evil plan. I'm waiting for one of those government hating hypocrritical bastards- how about you Ron Paul-`to say I personally don't want anything to do with government run health care programs and I reject and renounce it and refuse to participate.
Now if members of Congress have guaranteed acccess to government provided health care, but fight to the death for ordinary Americans to have access to a bare fraction of what they are eligible to receive- why does this not register?
Congress members have something they are not likely to give up- and I'm sure they and their families have even received medical services. So why are they so adament about ordinary people not being entitled to something so elemental and humane? No one is asking for free medical care- like Congress receives- just access to basic affordable medical care- like the people who live in the rest of the first world enjoy.
I don't get it. Romney, Boehner and the rest of the 1% Rethugs rant about the evils of Obamacare- and how it must be overturned before it destroys Amerikkka, and ordinary people who lack medical care or who utilize governent run Medicare and Medicaid continue to support them, ignoring the glaring disconnects.
Why do people vote against their self interest- even when its a matter of life and death? And is there a way to get them to open their eyes and minds, see reality, and think logically for a change?
