A little "partisan" reminder to all of those individuals out there who are angry and up in arms, suing the government, taking to the streets
throwing bricks, shooting guns and drawing racial epithets, all because of this new health care system:
You didn't seem to get that mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a new President.
You didn't get that mad when V.P. Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.
You didn't get that mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.
You didn't get that mad when the Patriot Act got passed taking away many of your freedoms.
You didn't get that mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.
You didn't get that mad when we spent over 600 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.
You didn't get that mad at the Hallibuton cover-up and their no-bid contracts for said illegal war.
You didn't get that mad when gas in Iraq was .14 cents a gallon, yet Halliburton charged the American people the going rate in the U.S. of over
$4.00 a gallon to fuel all our military equipment.
You didn't get that mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.
You didn't get that mad when you found out we were torturing people.
You didn't get that mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.
You didn't get that mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.
You didn't get that mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed Military Hospital.
You didn't get that mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown (and still could).
You didn't get that mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.
You didn't get that mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.
You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies,
corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans at home...oh hell no!
You say you know we need a new health care system, but you do not like the government telling you that you HAVE to have health insurance or be
fined. Why not? You didn't get that mad when they told you that you HAD to have car insurance and gun permits or get fined.
Could that be because insurance would benefit YOU? If someone hits you, and THEY have insurance you know you will be covered.
What is the difference? Would it not be better if everyone HAD to have health insurance so that THEY would be paying the costs for their medical
expenses? Our taxpayer costs in the long run might not increase, and likely go down. YOU would not be supplementing the cost to cover those
uninsured clogging our emergency rooms and walk-in clinics every minute of every day....because tell me, isn't that what this political issue really
boils down to after all, having to pay out of your own pockets to cover the costs of others? Believe me, you are already paying for it now, with
long waits in the ER, and in the cost of your private insurance premiums!! Who do you think is paying for those un-payed medical bills now? Those
are passed down to you and I.
You are fine with throwing a trillion dollars at an unknown enemy in a far off country, yet you are not willing to pay a single dime to help
a senior citizen on a fixed income, a disabled person barely making it on SDI and Medicaid, a single parent neighbor struggling to make ends
meet, or just a "down on their luck" American on welfare.
Sounds like partisan hypocrisy plain and simple!
