nothing-blackIt really shouldn’t be surprising that the Republican Party is focused right now on winning nothing, the biggest nothing in recent times.

The GOP’s goal, what they are campaigning full bore to provide to Americans, is absolutely nothing…in terms of health care reform. What is bewildering is how a party with 20% of the nation behind it thinks it’s a great idea to be the poster child for nothing (nothing for the public that is, except more expensive and worse medical coverage and greater wealth for health insurance companies).

There may be logic behind this. Since health care reform would give the 50 million without coverage health insurance, giving them nothing instead might contribute to more of them dying and everyone knows that people smart enough to know they need health insurance probably vote Democratic.

And those smart enough to recognize that the health insurance industry has itself become a cancer on this nation, eating away at the middle class’ financial stability and health, are also proving through their edjamucation that they too are Dems.

So maybe this is a very clever ploy by Republicans to reclaim power…in 30 or 40 years…by fighting for 30 million Americans to get sick and drop dead.

What else would one expect from the pro-life, family values party? A Marriage Appreciation Day march along the Appalachian Trail?

    This is really the Republicans last stand. They know if universal healthcare reform passes they will be the 20% party for decades. It’s all politics for them. Meanwhile for 47,000,000 uninsured Americans which is actually over 50,000,000 if you extrapolate the numbers like you said the GOP is waiting for them to die.

    In fact 20,000 people die each year for lack of adequate healthcare.

    34 people may have already died by the time I wrote this today.

      I’ve revised the article to reflect those figures. Irony aside, this is a naked attempt by Republicans to grab power at the expense of the lives and health of the American people.

      The GOP has sunken to a depth that’s almost a parody of itself, who else would steal medicine from babies in order to win elections?

      Yep, that Family Values party.

      What do they run on for the next 40 years, “Vote GOP, we’re willing to sacrifice your lives to get power, shouldn’t you?”
