Republican Version of Health Care?

Well Arizona Republicans are unveiling their version of a health care plan to us poor citizens.
Rep. Kate Brophy McGee, R-Phoenix, said that SB 1593 eliminates existing laws which require that companies that want to sell their insurance to Arizona residents be licensed and regulated by the state Department of Insurance. They say the increased competition will provide more opportunities for Arizonans to get the coverage they want at a price they can afford.  I’m sure nothing could go wrong there. 😦

Ms. Kate Brophy McGee said that is good news for those who don’t want or need that kind of coverage and the costs entailed. Conversely, those who want coverage for specific conditions can shop for a policy which includes that.  The bad news is of course that unregulated non-licensed companies will be free to do whatever they want and run their business in a shady manner and the poor insured people will be screwed many times over…again.  Part of the Republican agenda is to unregulate most all businesses.

Also to be considered is that the legislation wipes out more than two dozen mandates for what conditions must be covered for policies issued in Arizona. These range from chiropractic care and breast reconstruction to even how much time a woman would be allowed to remain in the hospital following child birth.  And let’s not forget that unregulated private insurers would be free to dis-allow anything they want. It would be much worse than the present day system where you often have to get a lawyer to make them pay up for many illnesses.

The Republicans are destroying the middle class in America and the above is just one more way they are f*cking over us.  We Democrats are helping to put these clowns in office…we have to get off our duffs and vote in ALL elections.  Set up rides for older voters, do the neighborhood walk door-to-door, volunteer to help your party.  Lets make the coming elections a shutout for Republicans.

Remember, in the 2012 presidential elections the Republicans will probably front a evangelical fundamentalist religious candidate such as Romney or Huckabee…we really don’t want 4 or 8 years with a religious fundamentalist leader again…George Bush was bad enough and he was an idiot.  Romney and Huckabee are very smart and they DO have an agenda they will not speak of.

Arabs Are Always Angry

An Arab journalist friend explained, “Arabs are always angry. They always look for the bad and then harp on it.” Yahoo News 11-08-10.  Sounds like recent Republican swipes at President Obama.  In fact that’s exactly what the Republican and Right leaning, biased political media / radio pundits (think…all of Fox news, the Tea Party, and Rush Limbaugh and his ilk) have been doing consistently since Obama’s inauguration.  The amount of scurrilous, abusive and offensive crap emanating from these clowns is disgusting.  In earlier times, in this country, there would be a tremendous outcry from the common folk, and the hate-spewing guilty ones would lose their jobs.

The fundamentalist religious asshats (like Baptist minister Mike Huckabee) who support and now control the Republican Party are consistently ragging on everything our President does, conveniently forgetting how screwed up George W. Bush was and how badly he screwed over our country.  How many stories have you EVER noticed about the opposition party bitching about a President visiting a country friendly to America in the past?

The amount of vitriolic, misleading, crappy, hate-mongering speech coming from the Republican side of our political system today makes me ashamed I was a Republican supporter and voter for nearly 50 years. I voted for Bush and it has been the only vote I have ever cast that I became ashamed of (well maybe Nixon a little).  How about in the interest of fair-play we treat our present President with more respect and give him a chance…after all he has done some good things.
