Leftism is a religion, and its followers are more devout in their cult-like fanaticism than Christians and Jews. At every policy that inevitably begins with their now cliched bleeding hearts, Leftists fail miserably. When they fail, the collateral damage takes the rest of us with them. Pick any issue, any movement, and witness the destruction that occurs when only emotions direct actions, where power and control are the only goals.
With the caterwauling that led up to back-alley vote for Obamacare — legislation not voted for by a single Republican — you would think Leftists would be happy that the 15 million, 20 million, or 30 million uninsured Americans (they could never agree on a number) were now going to be covered by a medical plan. If we know anything, however, we know statists are never satisfied.
So it shouldn’t surprise anyone to hear that Leftist Illuminati like T.R. Reid are continuing their ultimate plan for single payer healthcare by starting in Colorado. Check out Reid and his shifty eyes as he scolds Americans for being a “rich democracy” yet unable, despite Obamacare, to cover everyone. By all means, let’s trust this guy. Cue the folksy music:
By the way, genius, the US is not a democracy. We’re a representative republic. I recommend getting your civics lessons down before lecturing us on governmental policy.
One of the multiple, notable lines:
“Even if [Obamacare] works perfectly as designed, it’s still going to leave 31 million uninsured. ”
Translation: You see, stupid people of America in general and Colorado in particular, Obamacare was not intended to cover everyone, and we all knew it. Who’s Jonathan Gruber? Where was I? Oh yeah…We passed this stupid law under a trench coat measure called reconciliation because we didn’t have enough votes to get it passed the traditional way. No matter. In Colorado we’ve miraculously — miraculously, I tell you — conjured the necessary signatures to try what other states like Vermont could never get off the ground.
Let’s review: Obamacare was supposed to solve every medical problem known to the human race. Like a golden Easter Egg only Veruca Salt could enjoy, Obamacare contained so much “awesome sauce” that we had to pass the bill to find out what was in it. So began our journey to put the entire country under what amounts to a quasi-single payer-ishy healthcare system that only guarantees two things: We all pay more, and we all get less.
Show of hands: Who is actually paying less and getting more, as we were promised?
So the totalitarians in Colorado decided that, despite Obamacare’s grandeur, every Colorado taxpayer will, on top of every other tax, be hit with an additional payroll tax of 10%.
As serious as an uninsured heart attack, Lyn Gullette, the wiccan Campaign Manager, said,
We’ll keep health care money in Colorado to support local communities [not even she knows what this means]. We’ll cover every resident with comprehensive [see this word, run in the opposite direction] health care, and decrease Coloradan’s spending by $4.5 billion annually [Ah yes, spending reductions. The song of the truly desperate.]
Mrs. Cummings, get ready to pack our bags. If ColoradoCare passes next November, we can vote with our feet. I better check to make sure that’s still legal.
