I mentioned Katie Abrams just briefly in my last post on the health care debate. But it seems as if she has somehow become the poster girl for the angry white right wing folks. And it seems that their choices in poster girls such as Sarah Palin are the only people they can find be they idiots or not.
Katie claims that she is soooo happy with her health care coverage even though they have a health account and have a 5,000 dollar deductible. And pretty much pay all of their health bills out of pocket. Now hey, if her family can swing that type of deal then more power to them. But what of the people who can’t afford to swing that type of a deal let alone the three or four hundred dollars a month to buy health insurance for their family?
Should they be forced to have nothing and run our tax dollars up when they run to the emergency room and we have to foot the bill? See this is the problem with nuts like Katie. They have absolutely NO clue what is really happening in this country let alone in the government bills that are on the table. She talks out of her ass and whoop there she is the semi retarded poster child of the right wing.
What happens to poor, poor Katie and her family if for whatever reason they can no longer afford to pay out of pocket for health care? Does she then cry and whine to whoever is listening that the son who just had a surgery and is due for another, NOW needs another will be left in the wind. Will we have to come to her rescue by taking up a donation pot so she can get her son the care he needs?
Of course we will and the minute you point out her stupidity earlier with the things she said at the town meeting she will cry “that’s different.” I just don’t want this country turning into Socialist Russia while her son will need to be funded by the rest of us. Talk about socialism. HA! She would rather beg from everyone else than to ensure her family has health care by pooling her tax money with others.
And this bit about taking the country back to what the forefathers intended. And what pray tell is that? Do you mean back to a time when slavery ran amok, or women had no say? What exactly do these dummies mean by this? Because the last time I checked, neither the constitution nor the forefathers ever uttered one word about health care. I am damn sure that it didn’t even exist back then.
Now we all know or should know that a socialized (SOCIALIZED) health care system is NOT Socialism. Socialism is a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole. I don’t know who is saying that people have no ownership or control of production when they say we should pay into the pot for health care.
And if this is the case isn’t health insurance or insurance of any type socialism? I mean you have a bunch of people paying their money to the same place in order to be able to draw on that money at a later time IF something happens. This all means that everyone’s money is being used by others in order to make that particular system work.
Now the problem with insurance is that it is run under a for profit system meaning that the company who is charged with helping you if you need it wants to keep the money for themselves. And we know that means as soon as you need help, they will do everything in their power to find a way NOT to help you. And this is the system that we are fighting to keep! WHY? And even on top of all this info that idiot Katie doesn’t even have the benefit this failing, flawed and pathetic system. She has to pay out of pocket and still wants to fight for the right NOT to be able to have health coverage. WOW! Now that is a case for Dr. Freud.
She also cried about the fact that the spending is out of control and that her family is going to be taxed to death by a bill that is being forced through in a quick manner. Like she said she doesn’t pay attention to politics. Because if she did then wouldn’t this stupid, I mean sleeping, giant have awoken back with the passage of the Iraq war?
But alas we are now in the midst of another right wing puppet that doesn’t have all their facts straight let alone the intellectual curiosity to find the information out. And to tell you the truth this is exactly what is wrong with our country. Not that it is turning all Socialist or that a black man is in the white house.
Nor is it that our president wasn’t born in the United States and is hell bent on killing my kids’ grandma (as mine are already dead). The problem is all of these intellectually lazy fools who haven’t got the wherewithal to even bother looking up the minutest of factual information before spouting off like old faithful. Intellectuals are curious enough to look for answers rather than be spoon fed by the latest fly by night nut.
