Evil Lies, Evil Behavior

Lets stop the lies and evil behavior around health care reform.

I've read the bill that is pending regarding health care reform and there is not one word in there to substantiate claims that the Republican right and health care industry is putting out against health care reform like 'death panels' or restricting access.  It is evil of pundits like Rush Limbaugh and politicos like Sarah Palin to be acting on behalf of the health care industry against the common good of the average American citizen by fomenting violent protests at town hall meetings across the country.

It is evil to incite people to go into any town meeting with the goal of disrupting the proceedings and to cause such a ruckus that the meeting is silenced.  Silence speech and you silence democracy.  Sean Hannity says "Become part of a mob!"   But should a mob form and become violent with people being injured, lemme tell ya, Sean Hannity will NOT be paying for the medical care of the injured.  Sean Hannity will be able to claim "My hands are clean, I didn't do anything wrong."  He just encouraged people to join a mob without any thought to what happens when the mood of the mob changes for the worse.

It is evil to incite people to the point that they are calling in death threats to congressmen because sure as the sun rises in the East, this will be some fool who will take it in their hands to try to carry out those threats.

Shame on you for encouraging evil for the sake of patronage and money from the health insurance industries.  You're like war profiteers and you oughta be ashamed of yourselves.

It’s funny we hear Republicans say that they do not want “faceless bureaucrats” making medical decisions but they have no problem with “private sector” “faceless bureaucrats” daily declining medical coverage and financially ruining good hard working people. And who says that the “private sector” is always right, do we forget failures like Long-Term Capital, WorldCom, Global Crossing, Enron, Tyco, AIG and Lehman Brothers. Of course the federal government will destroy heathcare by getting involved, Oh but wait our military men and women and the Senate and Congress get the best heathcare in the world, and oh, that’s right, its run by our federal government. I can understand why some may think that the federal government will fail, if you look at the past eight years as a current history, with failures like the financial meltdown and Katrina but the facts is they can and if we support them they will succeed.

How does shouting down to stop the conversation of the healthcare debate at town hall meetings, endears them to anyone. Especially when the organizations that are telling them where to go and what to do and say are Republicans political operatives, not real grassroots. How does shouting someone down or chasing them out like a lynch mob advanced the debate, it does not. So I think the American people will see through all of this and know, like the teabagger, the birthers, these lynch mobs types are just the same, people who have to resort to these tactics because they have no leadership to articulate what they real want. It’s easy to pickup a bus load of people who hate, and that’s all I been seeing, they hate and can’t debate. Too bad.
