Mitt Romney: COMMUNIST

Fellow Freedom-Loving Americans, we can no longer blame Barack Hussein Obama for the death of our great nation. You won’t believe where the Kenyan Muslim got most of his ideas for socialized medicine.

Would you believe, Mitt Romney. That’s right, Mitt Mao Stalin Romney is the real culprit here.

In the early 1990s, the Heritage Foundation came up with the idea of requiring everybody to purchase health insurance. They liked this “market based” idea much better than the Nanny State approach of requiring employers to provide health coverage or — the worst possibility of all — having those dreaded government bureaucrats provide health insurance.

This “market oriented” individual mandate was the cornerstone of Republican counter-proposals to “Clinton Care” in 1993-94.

In 2004 the Governor of Massachusetts — that would be Mitt Romney — followed through with the Heritage Foundation’s advice. And in 2006 Governor Romney signed the law requiring Massachusetts residents to have health insurance.

The author of this article — Brad DeLong — says:

“Having conquered Massachusetts, RomneyCare is now the law of the land. But how did Republican RomneyCare become Democratic ObamaCare?”

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the rightwing talking heads to start asking these questions. That would require too much (“ugh!”) thinking for their dimwitted listeners.

And now for today’s Bible passage: “Death to all Democrats who voted for health care reform!!!”

Yes, the Far Right’s favorite minister is spewing again. These Holy words of wisdom came from Orange Country Pastor Wiley Drake. Wiley Drake has previously prayed for The Lord to kill President Obama.

Hallelujah! Feel the Love!!!

Tom,

Out of curiosity, how is the Massachusetts health care system working at the moment? (And yes, I could try to research it myself but I am afraid that I haven't the time to do so at the moment. If you know, I would be greatly obliged.)

If Obamacare turns out to be a good thin, this could be a boon to Mittens in 2012. He could point out to everyone while other GOP contenders (like Sarah Palin) were criticizing it, he actually had thought of it and put it into action first.

Knowing what a flip-flopper Mitt Romney is, he will probably say he really dislikes the health care he signed into law in Mass., just like he was pro-choice then pro-anti choice.

The Romney-Turned-Obama plan is the cornerstone of the Republicans' strategy to take all the credit in two years' time.

Isn't it great to live in this free country, where any pus-brained opportunist or hatemongering psychopath can spew poison from a pulpit to a flock of mean-spirited halfwits, and be protected by constitutional protections for freedom of religion and freedom of speech?

How inspiring. If TV had a religious Gong Show, those so-called pastors would be contenders.

Re: Romney. If you don't like what you see in him this election cycle, just wait. You'll probably get another rendition for the next one. I'm surprised he doesn't move to New York and run for governor.

I don't think the Massachusetts plan was designed to systematically put health-insurance companies out of business.
In a previous post I mentioned that I expect private health insurance companies to be out of business inside of 5 years, I need to recant that after having dinner with a couple of BC BS directors. They will be out of business in 3.

Paul and Kerry: It'll be fun to watch the Republicans simultaneously promoting Romney for president while condemning his biggest accomplishment as "socialism!"

Chopstik: I don't know the answer to that, for the same reason as you. From my understanding, the reason Mass. voters picked Scott Brown in that special election was that they already have "socialized medicine" in their own state, so health care wasn't an issue for them. I can't swear to that; it's just one version I've heard.

JR: LOL. Rightwing voters don't care of someone's a commie as long as he has magic underwear and that "impossible" hair that only a preacher or Republican politician can have.

Lew: If Democratic strategists are smart (and that's a big If), Romney won't get away with taking credit for "Obamacare" while the rest of the Republicans are condemning it.

Holte: Romney might go one better than John Kerry; he'll say he signed it before he was against it.

Thomas: I hope the Republicans won't be able to get away with spinning it like that.

SW: A "religious Gong Show" -- that might be a huge hit; a way for sickfuck "Christians" to reach out to their dimwitted followers.

Romney is kind of like what they used to say about the weather in New England: if you don't like it now, just wait a few minutes.

jadedj: Mine too.

Joaquin: Uh oh, Armageddon will arrive sooner than we thought. First it was 5 years, then 3 years, pretty soon -- OMG, don't look now, but the entire health insurance industry just collapsed. Oh God, look away, the wreckage and carnage are just unspeakable.

Randal: That's for sure. Republicans just love government handouts, as long as the recipients are large corporations.
