The Valium Smoothie
The state of the Helth Care Debate as of Monday night in Las Vegas. An Israeli attempts to explain the Israeli Health Care System and how Israel honors its soldiers with its Health Care. A Conservative protestor screams "Heil Hitler" at him and when she tries to elaborate when the Israeli man angrily demands an explanation, she can only reply in obnoxious gibberish.
He goes on to state that he was charged over $8,000 for a visit to an American Hospital Emergency Room ans her response is to imitate a crying baby, "Wahhh, Wahhh"....
Meanwhile, more and more sightings of armed citizens at these events, just exercising their Second amendment rights to carry a licensed fire arm, don't you know....
You know, this could be the tipping point. The rest of America realizes the debate has been highjacked by a small group acting more and more like thugs. They don't need logic, they don't need reasons and if you don't like it, well, they've got guns.
The ever loquent Michael Steele, the nominal head of the Republican National Committee stated this morning that he didn't really know what was in the bill, but there's some kind of panel, but perhaps it's wrong to call them "Death Panels".
Please, he's supposedly setting the tone of policy for the Republicans and he admits that he doesn't have a clue as to what is in the bill! He just mistates and repeats a lie about some kind of "Panel".
Today in the NY Times it was reported that the major Labor Unions have made it clear that they are going to withdraw support if the Health Care Reform legislation is stripped of the "Public Option". Good Move!
The White House also today admitted that it is ready to forego the dead end road of bipartitisanship and go it alone with the process of parliamentary "reconcilliation" in which they will only need 51 votes to pass a bill.
That is a process which was used by the last 3 republican Administrations to ram there legislation through in their "bipartitisanshipply" manner.
When they do it, it's okay. If the Obama administration does it, they will screm holy hell, what a bunch of left wing socialist hippies! and it will get messy.
But at the end of the day, Health Reform will pass and a win is a win and that is all the American people will remember.
Meanwhile, the crazy borderline anti semitic babe in the video should go home and finish her Valium Smoothie.
