Repubs: "trash obamacare or we will shut down the government"
Repubs: "trash medicare or we will shut down the government"
Obvious is obvious.
Congress is supposed to deliberate and pass laws. Obamacare was deliberated and passed and upheld in the SCOTUS. This isn't congress doing that. It is as they are saying, holding the country hostage, putting our economy in jeopardy just to throw a temper tantrum because they can't win elections. It is the epitome of putting party before country.
Republicans have been lying about their stance on social policy for near a century now. They've been trying to dismantle social programs since the New Deal implemented them and every election they keep lying and lying about how they won't dismantle them... they just want to "improve" them. They damn well know if they speak the truth about what they want and intend to do to social programs they will lose elections.
So they lie about it and this government shutdown should shed one helluva light on their real intentions for people to see.
FDR had you guys and your bull**** lies pegged from the start:
Blame hell we should hawg all the credit!
sing it from the rooftops: the death panels are coming, the death panels are coming!
Every hospital has a death panel and has for decades. Ever since emergency and medical care was required whether a person can pay for it or not. They don't call them death panels, of course. Rather, they claim to calculate the percentage of likely benefit. So, for example, if the odds are only 40% you would live with a heart transplant? You don't get one. Age also does factor in.
New Hope for the Wretched era
