Now I'm "Un-American".
Americans have been waiting for nearly a century for quality, affordable health care.
If it were true that Americans wanted what Pelosi and Hoyer are selling, it would have been a done deal. The idea of a "Right to Healthcare" is populist crap. Designed only to get votes. As we have seen in numerous examples, somebody pays. Either someones' ability to bill for services suffers, the taxpayer suffers or someone doesn't get services. And why should a taxpayer be required to pay for anothers' healthcare? And what part of the Constitution even allows it?
The failure of past attempts is a reminder that health insurance reform is a defining moment in our nation's history — it is well worth the time it takes to get it right.
Then why the rush? Why is it necessary to throw a bill together and jam it through Congress in a matter of weeks?
These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.
Apparently only un-American if their side is drown out. How many Conservatives have tried to speak and been shouted down over the last 40 years. Everything from deaththreats to pie-in-the-face tactics have been used. I know something more un-American, too. Sending Union thugs out to intimidate and harass protesters doesn't sound too "American". How long have we been told that "dissent is patriotic"? Apparently not if you want to dissent from Queen Nancy.
In the end, there is no debate. To debate the stimulus or cap and trade or healthcare is to expose them for what they are. Democrats want to shove their Socialistic wet dreams up our collective @$$ whether we like it or not.
