We will see if OBAMA chastises Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) for saying:
“They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels. You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing. The Germans said enough about the Jews and people believed it–believed it and you have the Holocaust. We heard on this floor, government takeover of health care. Politifact said the biggest lie of 2010 was a government takeover of health care because there is no government takeover.”
Now the Republicans are like Nazi Germany. Cohen got in “Blood Libel”, “Holocaust”, and “Goebbels” in a few short sentences. Can’t wait for tonight and tomorrow to see more examples of the new Left civility.
Didn’t take the left long to abandon their “kindler-gentler” rhetoric following the Tuscon shootings. I guess the repeal of Obamacare is exempt as are comments about Republicans and those who support the repeal of Obamacare.
Representative Shiela-Jackson Lee of Texas said yesterday, that repeal would also mean “killing Americans,”! Translated, Republicans and Tea Party patriots will kill Americans with their policies. She also claims that repealing Obamacare is a violation of the Constitution’s 5th and 14th Amendments. Funny, when Obamacare was being rammed through Congress Pelosi and Reid both refused to have a constitutional review of the bill prior to its ratification vote. Now, this brilliant Congresswoman is a member of the Supreme Court and has deemed the repeal of something is unconstitutional? 27 States disagree with this ignorant public servant in challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare. I am sure Ms Lee is smarter than all of the governors and AGs of these states.
The time for bi-partisan debate was prior to last March when Obamacare was passed by a totally left controlled House, Senate and White House. Now that Republicans control the House, all of a sudden bi-partisan agreements and civil discourse are the Left’s Battle Cries. Obama would love to have the Republicans cave and work with him to “change” portions of the current bill. The problem with the current bill is that it like a cancer on the economy. It is systemically flawed and geared to the socialization of 1/6th of the economy and a total control over your life by controlling not only your access to healthcare but your eating habits, exercise habits and everything else they deem necessary to “control” healthcare costs, ie, YOU!
Get behind repealing Obamacare so we can have a real debate on providing America with an American solution for improving healthcare, not a Canadian or European solution.
