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?
