President Obama is shocked, shocked I tell you that the Leftier Lefts want a Public Option. He’s wrong about that, the Leftiest Left wants Single-Payer, the rest are just struggling for crumbs.
“I don’t understand why the left of the left has decided that this is their Waterloo,” said a senior White House adviser, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “We’ve gotten to this point where health care on the left is determined by the breadth of the public option. I don’t understand how that has become the measure of whether what we achieve is health-care reform.”
“It’s a mystifying thing,” he added. “We’re forgetting why we are in this.”
No mon frer, you never understood why you are in this in the first place. I can most assuredly help in clarifying this to our esteemed colleagues and spokespeople for the Office of the President.
We want Single Payer, you clueless, Elitist, cowardly douchebags!
Ok, that was unproductive. I will try again.
Do you fully understand how/why you got this, the Highest Office in the Land in the first place?
Again, I assure you that it was not “BI-PARTISANSHIP” that drew record turnouts, although after Bush’s one-party regime, that may have drawn embarrassed Conservatives who were shamed by the neo-cons co-opting of their party, who wanted to be sure that their reasonable voices would again be heard.
You were elected by young first-voters, people of color, the glbt community and a middle class. You were elected because every single one of us who punched your ticket KNEW beyond a reasonable doubt that on the current track we were upon, that we had NO FUTURE WHATSOEVER. You were elected because you spoke of hope and change and made us think you had the balls to derail our bleak future, and Health Care was one of your keys statements.
Every single one of us is, or knows someone dying or in pain from a lack thereof.
And you sold us out to the ones who created that situation.
Let me ask you, if Jesus came down right now, and testified before both Houses, “Who would I NOT heal, who would I demand a pound of flesh or 30 pieces of silver from, before I healed them?”, would you throw him under the bus with your “friend” Reverend Wright?
Do you not understand, advisers of the White House, that we are poor, and cannot afford to be FORCED to pay even more? Another mandatory bill on our already aching backs is not “reform.”
Do you not understand we KNOW how much the Medical Industrial Complex feeds your coffers? We are fully cognizant that their dollars have bought your souls and decision to betray us?
How can you be mystified that we feel wee, too, are entitled to quality of life, including the right not to be denied care by decree of the wealthy share-holders of the “other” MIC???
Our “Waterloo?” REALLY?
When we are the only civilized nation NOT to have National, Single Payer Health Care?
Do we not KNOW who pays for all those scare ads, and misinformation?
Here’s a thought for you:
What do you think would happen if you suddenly, and entirely eliminated Medicare, then required Seniors or the Disabled to buy a “competitive” Insurance Policy?
Most of them are on fixed income, unlike those of us living paycheck to paycheck, or having lost our jobs entirely. Do they deserve more than the young, the middle aged or the infants?
You are shocked that the added fear of Medical Care is IMPORTANT to us? When our very economy’s are crashing at our futureless feet?
You, you, sirs have indeed forgotten why you are there in the first place. We put you there, and we can vote your Vichy asses out.
The very fact you can be mystified, while having the best Insurance in the World on OUR TAX DOLLARS says it all.
You never knew what it was about in the first place.
We are fighting for our very LIVES.
With that I bid thee adieu.
