BREAKING: SENATE VOTES FOR CLOTURE; OBAMACARE TO BE RENAMED “RULINGCLASSCARE”
Watching C-Span, and listening to these men and women chortle and joke and handshake and back pat — all as they consign us to an era of diminished liberty and lower standards of health care that they’ve exempted themselves from — is enough to make me sick.
I despise this broken government. I despise that the citizens and the states have no effective representation. I despise those voters who are so self-interested that they will sell their freedom for handouts and promises.
It is becoming ever more clear that we are now on the road to a single payer system, with exemptions for our rulers and their cronies. This is an attempt to return us to the “proper” breakdown of wealth, where there is really no middle class, just the aristocracy and the economic units they control and are subsidized by.
If we have any steel left in our spine as a people, this will not end well.
Though the GOP will tell us about — and rationalize to itself — its nuanced longterm strategy, which, despite their obfuscatory rhetoric, is nothing more than a consistent evincing of cowardice, self-interest, and disdain for the American people.
And their GOP cheerleaders on Fox and in the “conservative” press will cheer them right on. Because they, too, realize that the money is in having things to run against; not in fixing things, or listening to the rubes who get all riled up over their silly little freedoms.
