Rhetoric from the Left on Healthcare
"The Republican healthcare plan: Die Quickly." Florida Democrat Congressman Alan Grayson made this outrageous comment and then compared the healthcare crisis to a holocaust.
That's rich, coming from the "party of death". Speaking of a holocaust, the liberals are responsible for America's holocaust: the brutal killing of over 50 million unborn babies. Just as slavery was a moral stain on our nation prior to the Civil War, abortion is the modern day moral stain on America, and the blood of these babies is all over the Democrats' hands. Perhaps, Alan Grayson should apologize to these 50 million innocent babies slaughtered in America's abortion mills.
Liberals have some kind of nerve. They write legislation with huge cuts in Medicare which if passed will result in healthcare rationing among our elderly. Let's have a reality check here. That means in many cases our seniors will not get the medical treatment they need. The truth is that the Democrats are the ones suggesting that Americans die prematurely.
Grayson's comments were clearly over the top, but NPR's Garrison Keillor has outdone him. Is there a liberal contest out there to see who can make the most outlandish remarks about conservatives? Me thinks so.
Read about Keillor's offensive statement, via Gateway Pundit:
It Has Begun... Noted Liberal Proposes Killing All Republicans to Pay For Health Care
"TOP DEM SUPPORTER PROPOSES DEATH PANELS--
Democratic darling Garrison Keillor wants to distribute nationalized health care based on your political party.
Liberal media icon Garrison Keillor says the country should kill all Republicans to pay for health care in the United States.
The Chicago Tribune published Keillor's wish, via Don Surber:
'When an entire major party has excused itself from meaningful debate and a thoughtful U.S. senator like Orrin Hatch no longer finds it important to make sense and an up-and-comer like Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty attacks the president for giving a speech telling schoolchildren to work hard in school and get good grades, one starts to wonder if the country wouldn't be better off without them and if Republicans should be cut out of the health-care system entirely and simply provided with aspirin and hand sanitizer. Thirty-two percent of the population identifies with the GOP, and if we cut off health care to them, we could probably pay off the deficit in short order.'
Glenn Reynolds adds:
'"With this gang in charge who would be surprised to find that under ObamaCare your chances of a liver transplant really will depend on your politics? Not me."'
Related... 59% of Americans prefer passing a series of smaller reforms that address specific problems rather than nationalizing the system as democrats are proposing."
Hey, if this snake oil gets passed, don't be surprised if the liberals find some way of testing our loyalty to the Marxist administration and dispensing medical treatment accordingly.
