One of the GOP’s most diabolical tricks is to dumb down any debate in effect making it’s orthodox right wingers believe that any government system that a high school dropout cannot understand is too complex a solution for American’s problems. So they love to put up these complicated looking flowcharts showing how all complex solutions are bad.  After all the GOP thinks the solution to every domestic that involves money requires only tax cuts and deregulation.  The US healthcare system is about 1/6th of our multi-trillion dollar economy and there are no overly simplistic solutions.  “The New Republic” did a great job countering the illogical Republican argument by developing their own flowchart showing how complex our current disaster of a healthcare system is.

Worst of all again conservatives are being totally hypocritical.  Conservatives love complicating systems when it comes to their pet endeavors like developing a whole new spiderweb domestic security apparatus  after 911 and of course Republicans love the convoluted military industrial complex.  The big difference is conservatives like these opaque and intricate systems to enrich their true base the haves and have mores.    The truth is the simplest healthcare system by far is single but never in 100 years would Republicans support the simplest system of universal healthcare because it does not fit their ideology.

Sarah Shive from “Campaign for America’s Future” put out an excellent complex flowchart of their own depicting the complex financial and AstroTurf structure behind killing healthcare reform.  Ironic how Republicans hat complex systems until they need them to hide their real intentions.


Real Universal Healthcare Reform. Let’s Do It for Teddy!

KQ you are out-doing yourself! I need diagrams as I am more a visual than textual learner. Thank-you.


Fantastic diagram!

We all know that the arguments outwardly presented by the GOP now are always bullshit, the true motivation of nearly everything they do is to thwart Obama and the Dems so they can hope that people become so fed up, they’ll give the box of matches back to the arsonists.

Republicans have no real convictions…mainly because they haven’t been prosecuted yet.


Not only no convictions but absolutely no ideas to put forward themselves. I’m still waiting for one of them to sit up and say, “This is our plan for the future of healthcare.’




The GOP plan for Health Care is the status quo.

How do you run and win elections on having a platform of continuing to drive towards the edge of a cliff?


The edge of the cliff is in sight, just a few more self inflicted shoves and they will tumble down without anyone having to lift a finger.

Chickens minus their heads is how I see their fumbling so far and yet no one seems to have the gumption to feel in the least bit embarrassed.


The Repubs just look like chickens with their heads cut off, their heads are actually hidden out of sight, inserted in a place under their tail feathers.


What a shitty way to spend your life, ignorant and full of it.
