As usual, your comment plays on the emotions and fears of the uninformed, but has little in the way of fact and reality. You paint the picture of “Ron Paul conservatives” cruelly turning people away from urgently needed medical care. Oh …. those cold-hearted conservative bastards! They make Scrooge look like Mother Teresa! Did you know conservatives eat their young! Barak Obama, the Messiah … the Holy One … will save us all from the evil, fascist, chauvinistic, racist, hate-mongering conservatives!
Don’t like spending nearly a trillion bucks on stimulus? You’re a racist! Don’t like ObamaCare? You’re a racist!
Why is it when liberals rant … it is “free speech,” but when conservatives rant, it is “hate speech?” Need some examples? Maybe I can find a few …. it isn’t very hard …
Margaret Carlson of Bloomberg News comparing the Tea Party caucus in Congress to terrorists: “I mean, they’ve strapped explosives to the Capitol and they think they are immune from it.”
Doctors are fleeing the medical field or making decisions to not accept government-based healthcare plans because reimbursement levels are already too low and shrinking. (I know this because I have several friends who are doctors … and no they are not greedy monsters. They are normal folks, whose business costs are skyrocketing because of massive paperwork involved with regulatory compliance forced on them by Obamacare).
Enrollment in medical school is down because not too many students can afford to take on such massive debt in the form of the student loans required to complete a medical degree program … for the dwindling return on their investment. Doctor’s work very hard for their degrees (typically for at least 7 years) and incur a great deal of debt achieving it. To begrudge them a higher salary than folks who, say, decided to flip hamburgers for a living or just go on the public dole … is pretty short-sighted and very small-minded!
Tell me … do you begrudge George Soros, Warren Buffett, AL Gore, John Kerry, or George Clooney their massive incomes?
And yes … even those dastardly, despicable, racist, hate-mongering, tea bagging, slutty, conservatives (who hate autistic children, the mentally challenged, and who want old people to die starving in the streets) want American citizens to have access to affordable, transportable, quality health insurance. The problem is that Obamacare will not provide that. It will only bankrupt the country.
I am not a big fan of Ron Paul. I don’t believe Ron Paul is actually a true conservative. I like some of his domestic positions, but he is not truly a Constitutionalist. If you go back to Ron Paul’s early years and his influences, they include a list of folks who detested conservatives and the U.S. Constitution. Ron Paul mostly uses the U.S. Constitution as a hammer to bash all other candidates on the head. His foreign policy is to the left of even Barack Obama’s and I feel would be disastrous for this country and the rest of the world. Isolationist-based policies have indirectly caused several wars including World War I, World War II, and The Vietnam Conflict. His roots are, perhaps, slightly less scary than Barack Obama’s; while Obama is a Saul Alinsky “inspired” socialist, Ron Paul is essentially a Murry Rothbard inspired free-market anarchist.
