It’s who they are. It’s what they do.
But it’s the useful idiots on the ground who drive the indoctrination train:
In a speech to a packed room of Obama for America phone bank volunteers at the Democratic National Committee headquarters Thursday night in Washington, D.C., Special Assistant to the President Kareem Dale said that people with disabilities are going to be “absolutely killed” under the proposed policies of Mitt Romney and delivered a strong message to the crowd: “let’s win this motherfu**er.”
Dale, who is himself partially blind, acts currently as the associate director for the White House Office of Public Engagement and as a special assistant to the president for disability policy.
During his address, Dale discussed the difference between the president’s views on healthcare and Romney’s. That’s when he said that the president would “protect the disabled” and announced, in contrast, that ”people with disabilities are going to be absolutely killed under Mitt Romney’s plan.”
He continued: “We know that other minorities are not going to have the same opportunity in this country if Mitt Romney becomes president.” He also said that the LGBT community would “lose their rights if Mitt Romney becomes president.”
“We cannot afford to go back,” he added to the crowd of about 60. He said later, “We’ve seen [Romney], we’ve seen what he has to say, we’ve seen what he is all about” and even though he does this “whole waffling thing” that the “proof is in the pudding.”
Actually, Mr Dale, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. So let’s ask some pointed questions: first, how have blacks and other minorities fared under an Obama presidency?
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the biggest change in employment over the last month affected black workers. In September, the unemployment rate for blacks was 13.4 percent. In October, that number jumped to 14.3 percent, an almost a full percentage point change, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Unemployment for whites remained steady at 7 percent.
Likewise, the unemployment rate remain unchanged for teenagers (23.7 percent) and adult men (7.3 percent).
For Asians the rate ticked up, from 4.8 percent tp 4.9 percent. Likewise for Hispanics, from 9.9 percent to 10 percent.
Second, how does the removal of $717B from Medicare and the dissolution of Medicare Advantage — all in an effort to provide substandard, top-down, compulsory government dictated health care — affect seniors?
Of the $716 billion in cuts, $415 billion come in the form of “updates to fee-for-service payment rates,” a euphemism for reducing Medicare’s payments to doctors and hospitals. But what happens when you reduce payments to doctors? Doctors stop being willing to see Medicare patients. And if you can’t actually get a doctor’s appointment, what does it really matter what your insurance plan covers on paper?
We already see this happening in the Medicaid program, where sick and injured children can’t get appointments to deal with urgent medical conditions, because Medicaid so severely underpays doctors relative to private insurers. By the end of this decade, under Obamacare, Medicare reimbursement rates are set to fall below those of Medicaid.
And finally, if government is so noble and beneficent, why does it want bureaucrats stepping in between a doctor and a patient to determine a course of treatment or care? The answer to which is that the government has a bully pulpit and can constantly use emotional appeals to demonize private industry while ennobling itself. Falsely: “Medicare Denies More Claims than Private Health Insurers”:
Medicare led the group with the greatest percentage of insurance claims denied (6.85%), more than double the denial rate for private insurers like UHC (2.7%), Coventry (2.9%), Humana (2.9%) and CIGNA (3.4%).
What Mr Dale, and the other useful idiots who carry water for government-run compulsory health care don’t understand — so immersed are they in the hatred of the free market they’ve been taught is their enemy, with only a kind and noble federal government standing between them and debtor’s prisons or a shopping cart lean-to under some overpass as a mailing address – is that under a government-run health care system, it is the fringe cases, that is, the most in need of the expensive drugs, who are left to die for the greater good. As a patriotic duty, even.
This is repulsive to me. It isn’t “realism.” It’s bean-counting top-down problem solving that is both impersonal and unavailable for appeal.
Mr Dale and other ideologically brainwashed morons want me and my family forced into such a system. The Supreme Court has told me that the federal government has the right to force me to purchase a health plan that they designed, then forced private insurers to provide.
Fuck them all.
I will continue to fight for the principles that have made this country exceptional — the very things Obama and his army of emotionalist bots want to chant into the dustbin of history. So no, Mr Dale. We’re not going to let you “win this motherfucker.” You may steal it — it’s part of who you are — but if that happens, the revolution that is coming will shock you right down to your very core.
You will not enslave me. Nor my family. And there are millions of others like me who will not go quietly down the road to serfdom, no matter what pretty colors you paint the bricks.
