Here we go. Another week in the process of Making America Great Again.
So, how about this health insurance bill the Republicans thought up? There's a great idea. Let's take obamacare, the promise of repeal of which won us the House, Senate and White House, and let's just repaint it and claim we repealed it.
Is this what we wanted? Here we go. Instead of just subsidizing all the democrat voters healthcare insurance, we'll give them refundable tax credits. That's a whole lot better, isn't it? We'll keep everything else and call it by a different name and then say we fixed it.
I don't know about you, but I wanted this thing repealed. It was never about healthcare insurance. It was always a Marxist redistribution vehicle to make those of us who work and pay taxes pay for health insurance for those who don't. Not just the small group of people who are unable to work due to disability or other causes beyond their control. But millions and millions of democrat voters who think it is their "right" to have healthcare insurance and make me pay for it.
There's a blog over on the Urinal all about how wonderful big government is. How they should provide lots and lots of stuff for everybody. Because compassion.
Fred Smertz already pointed to her that America is $20,000,000,000,000 in debt. And we are spending every penny that comes into the treasury plus a trillion or so more every year.
Healthcare insurance is not a right. Free college is not a right. A house, a car and a flat screen TV is not a right. Welfare and food stamps are not a right.
So is it cold blooded to say repeal this nightmare of Marxist intervention into our lives and return to the free market system we had? I don't care. Do it anyway.
You want insurance? Get a damn job. Can't get a damn job? Well, why not?
Here's a hard reality. If you are poor, and you are not physically or mentally disabled then you are poor because of your own life decisions. Sorry if that seem harsh, but it's true.
Most of us have been around enough to understand that. We've all known some of these types. Hell, most of us have one or two in the family. Don't work. Sponge off the rest of us. Draw food stamps, welfare, any kind of assistance they can get. Spend most of their time trying to get some more.
Never have money for the essentials but plenty of money for booze, smokes and drugs. Go to their house. You'll find a big ole flat screen probably with a nice sound system. Cable. Air conditioning. Open the refrigerator. Plenty of beer. Frozen foods. Not much else.
Now don't get me wrong. I have all those things too. But I worked and paid for them myself. As old Merle Haggard once said, "I ain't never been on welfare and that's one place I won't be cause I'll be workin". That's the workin man's blues my friends.
So do we need obamacare or some Republican version of it? Hell no we don't. We need to do something about this $20 trillion in debt before it does something to us. Which it will.
We knew when they passed obamacare it would get so deep into the system it would be hard to get rid of. It's like a cancer. It grows and grows until you can't cut it out or burn it out. And the longer you let it grow, the worse it gets.
Well, let's kill it now and deal with the fallout before it kills us.
