Stunning Victory For Dimwitted Shrieking Minority
Yaaay! Let’s hear it for the brilliant teamwork that derailed the majority. Thanks to a few wealthy shadowy PR groups and their reliable gangs of Robo-Thugs — Socialized Medicine will not be darkening America’s doorway.
Insurance lobbyists have thrown hundreds of billions of dollars — and thousands of Rent-A-Drones — into the battle against a government-paid health insurance option. And it looks like they’ve won.
Never mind that the vast majority of Americans WANTS government-paid health coverage.
When did the Democratic majority become so paralyzed? Didn’t they win a few elections in 2006 and 2008? A lot of good that did.
You’ll remember that when George W. Bush took over the White House in 2001, he had barely squeaked in. It was probably the closest presidential race ever. Al Gore won the popular vote. And the electoral vote count was so close, the Supreme Court finally had to install Dumbya in the White House. (Something about Dumbya’s father having appointed a few of those Supreme Court justices…) The Senate was something like 51-49 in favor of the Republicans. And yet, with this razor-thin margin, the Bush juggernaut immediately started steamrolling over the entire country as if they had the biggest, most sweeping mandate in history. Coming Through!
Eight years later, Obama wins the White House by a landslide, both houses of Congress are heavily Democratic — and what have we got to show for it? All we’ve seen so far is the Democratic majority cowering in fear of the party they just defeated.
Now remember, these Democratic “leaders” already have Socialized Medicine for themselves; they just don’t want the rest of us to have it. Let’s see if their own government-paid insurance coverage would pay for a spine transplant.
