The 10 most outrageous right-wing freakouts over the health care bill


www.alternet.org

"1. Last week, Rush Limbaugh swore he would move to Costa Rica if health reform passed. Instead, he heroically decided to stay behind and fight for freedom, by telling his listeners they're in a death match with Hitler. “America is hanging by a thread. So we have to see what we can do with a thread. At the end of the day, our freedom has been assaulted. This is the kind of change that people did not think they were going to get when they voted for Barack Obama. Freedom must win the day."

This has made me laugh a hell of a lot! i mean these guys are crazy! i personally think everyone needs to chill, i don't want to start going to much into detail about my opinions on the health care bill, because they can be found on my other threads if you wish to take a look and my stance on the whole thing is pretty neutral as i'm from the UK so i geuss i'm looking in from the outside.

I can't help thinking theres some kind of start of a new civil war starting here, this healthcare bill really has split the country right up, and please like i did in my last post i do again urge nobody to start taking personal attacks as so many do, please remember i am completely neutral here

I just thought i would post this article as it is actually interesting, so everybody let me know what you think!

I have my own opinions about the American Healthcare Bill and seeing as I'm from "Good 'Ol" Australia, (Where we breed our Criminals Tough), I'm also from the outside looking in, although I did read a lot of the actual Bill that was being passed. My opinions can be found in other threads too.

It makes me laugh when people make Idle threats like "If this bill get's passed, I'm moving to Timbucktoo". When it does happen, they all seem to have a change of heart and think they're going to be doing everyone a Favour by staying and fighting the good fight. In fact, it probably would be better if they did carry out their threats and move to Timbucktoo.

Anyhow, That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

Ha ha, good one, man, very entertaining. While not the most entertaining of them, #10 from your link - John McCain being honest about the obstructionism among Republicans in the Congress and demonstrates his usual M.O. - a temper tantrum and nasty demeanor.

"There will be no cooperation for the rest of the year," he threatened. "They have poisoned the well in what they've done and how they've done it."

Senator John McCain, champion of temper tantrums.

Does any Republican truly find this acceptable? Is this how you want your representatives to behave?

Yeah Yeah We saw plenty of idle threats to move abroad from the political geniuses that make up Hollywood during the Bush years. Funny, no one ever kept their promises back then either.

Let me share my right wing freak out for you.

This legislation represents the first mark in our history where the Federal Govt. has ever mandated that every person in the US must purchase something or else face fines and imprisonment. Never Before!

People swarmed to America throughout our brief history in search of a new beginning. In many cases, our immigrants fled countries that began doing what has just happened with this legislation.

Furthermore, this bill is buried with add ons and tricks that would make an Amsterdam hooker cringe.

Unbeknown to the majority of the US a little back door legislation was hidden in this bill. Yes, Obama just signed HCR but he also signed a measure that will enable our Govt. to take over the student loan system as well.

Who will pay for all of this??

The majority of American favor reform in certain areas. However, we are opposed to monstrous legislation such as this. THe idiots on the Hill don't even know what is in this bill. Pelosi said it herself. She actually said that they will discover the details after it passes.

Is this what my Grandfather fought for in WWII? This is a slap in the face to our nation. Let me choose my path.

Just as acceptable as the constant closed door Dem only meetings that led up to the passage of this bill. One token open door meeting was held and actually televised. It was the only such meeting. Contrary to Barry's promises.

The line in the sand has been drawn...Never f#$% with freedom.

Why do these news souces (so called) LIE. Rush said he would go to Costa Rica for TREATMENT not move there to live. Another liberal lie about someone they dare not debate because they know they will lose.

We will remember in November!

I fully support the total exclusion of Republicans from the processes of government. I see absolutely no reason to work with a party that has consistently shown itself to be deceitful, duplicitous, and harmful to the interests of the American people. Democrats are in power; Republicans need to be trying to work with them, not the other way around.

As opposed to all the closed door meeting Republicans have had...since forever?

I don't even see them claiming that they will be transparent...because they won't.

Back door deals? Since when does our government NOT work that way?

If you want to be critical of it...be critical of both and quit giving Republicans the benefit of the doubt because they don't deserve it.

Ask yourself why they aren't attacked the health insurance industry and Big Pharma for cutting deals with Obama?

They aren't sticking up for Americans...because if they were sincere they would have been attacking them MONTHS ago....yet they say nothing.

Considering the way this health care bill was passed (on lie after misleading lie) - yes. If I were a hard core Republican that is exactly how I would want my representatives to behave. Put a boycott on cooperation with Democrats for the rest of the year.

Well, if you want a single party system, I know several countries that would love to have you.

Are you even aware of the magnitude of this legislation?

Yeah, and the funniest one of all from the left wing freakouts is Pelosi giving the sob story about how being a woman is a pre-existing condition. How being fertile is a pre-existing condition. How being infertile is a pre-existing condition.

Talk about a pathetic freak out.

You see, I just love it when someone comes in and tries to blast the left or the right when it's BOTH ENDS OF THE SPECTRUM that play this pathetic game. They pull on the heart strings or push buttons. In other words they play on emotions knowing that most people, when worked into an emotional state, won't think clearly and will buy into the complete BS garbage that is being spouted.

Right now I'm a bit disappointed with the way this bill was passed. I'm a bit disappointed with what is in it. However, it is done. Now we need to focus on how we can try to make it work because I still don't see how that will happen without further destroying this country.

You see, that's what is happening right now. This country is being dismantled piece by piece. It's what happens to all great nations after experiencing unprecedented growth and prosperity. You get the nuts that come in and pull it down. That is what is taking place in Washington from ALL SIDES.

So, even though some of these are pretty funny, I just have to point out that I can find just as many from the left if not more.

Are you kidding me? Seriously? Are you really that brainwashed and zombie like to truly believe that the only deceitful, duplicitous and harmful party with special interests are the republicans? Can you truly be THAT ignorant? Obviously you are so I guess that is a moot question. I'm actually stunned by the level of ignorance being displayed in your statement.

Again, I can come up with dozens of examples where the democrats have been just as deceitful, duplicitous and harmful as any other party in history. They are both made up mostly of rich people who have an elitist attitude that they know better than anyone else. Their pockets and bank accounts are lined with massive amounts of money from special interest groups.

ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE!

Are you serious???


"... a party that has consistently shown itself to be deceitful, duplicitous, and harmful to the interests of the American people." Somehow I'm astounded that you believe that this applies only to the Republicans. People like YOU are precisly why America is descending into the Sh*tter faster than people who know the truth can save it!

There were more backroom deals, buy-offs, pay-offs etc... done right in the faces of the American people... and somehow the Republicans are corrupt??? You partisan hacks used to be entertaining. Now you just piss me off because you are so fracking dangerous to freedom loving people!

I know you understand the magnitude of this bill. This is legislation of a lifetime and it was not the time for Barry to play his Chicago games.

As for the Republicans, sure they have had their faults but they have accomplished more bipartisan legislation than you think. Furthermore, they never had anything of this magnitude before them either. We are not talking about renaming a highway.

Are you aware that the Dems also buried this in HCR. No one even noticed that slight of hand trick. Let's nationalize the student loan program as well. I suppose the money saved by slashing medicare can pay for that.


The drive "started off by essentially quasi-nationalization of the financial system, nationalization of the automobiles, quasi-nationalization of the health industry, and now this bill has in it, which nobody has focused on, the nationalization of the student loan industry," he said.

The "reconciliation" package of healthcare changes being debated by the Senate also would revamp the federal student loan program to end government subsidies to private lenders, shifting almost all student loan activity to the government.

And this supports the very foundation of this country, how? What benefit does eliminating the voice of an entire party do other than further divide our country? This is the cowardly solution.

This advice will help you: Stop parroting the MSM speak! This is what you have been conditioned to believe. There are many registered Republicans that do not agree with what has been done to categorize the entire party. The media's purpose has been to crucify Republicans and it seems to have worked to a certain degree.

Further, you would be hard-pressed to create a list of Republicans and Democrats and NOT find yourself with an EQUAL amount of liars on BOTH sides.


Democrats are in power; Republicans need to be trying to work with them, not the other way around.


How does it completely escape you that the Democrats lost their majority in the Senate? The majority that they were only able to maintain for less than a year? Does the ousting of a democratic senator from Massachusetts not speak volumes? The election results hold more weight than anything spewed on any news channel or blog. Why? Because election results ARE the actual voice of the people shown in simple black and white.

People should be very afraid and angry of what the government has done to us, our childrens and our freedoms.

The HCR has been so obfuscated that people had not clue of what the bill is all about.

People never do research and the bill while been "promoted" as a good thing by the lying administration and those that will benefit from it is far from good for the people.

The bill that was passed or most of it (is still been worked at)

This bill is almost identical to the plan written by AHIP, the insurance company trade association, in 2009.

The original Senate Finance Committee bill was authored by a former Wellpoint VP. Since Congress released the first of its health care bills on October 30, 2009, health care stocks have risen 28.35%


So the lies that insurance companies were against it was nothing but a lie they kill the Public option.

This bill that we all be hit with has private insurance companies and big pharma all over it.

Just my thoughts... Neil Boortz is a shock jock? Randall Terry is a terrorist? they lose a lot of credibility with those statements. It's just some anti right wing idiot bashing everyone for his own personal gain.

Randall Terry wanted Polosi excommunicated. So frickin what. I don't approve of abortions except in rape or incest. Guess what I don't care if you have one. I think you should have the options for 1st term abortion. I am disgusted that federal funds will now support abortion. My tax dollars paying for someone to kill a baby. Sad. And polosi is chiefly responsible. She's catholic and she did it. So randall wants her excommunicated, good. She should be.

Neil Boortz is hardly a shock jock. He's the chief advocate of the fair tax and the times I've heard him he's always seemed like an educated conservative not beholden to any party. He's ripped republicans and dems. He's even supported some democratic candidates for office.

This list is just someone with a huge chip on their shoulder trying to go nah nah nah nah nah.
