The Last Of The Millenniums

Just because it always has been, doesn't mean it always will be

How Republicans Think – ‘End Obamacare, and people could die. That’s okay’.

This is Conservative logic.
We ignore that the population is growing.
We ignore that the middle class and poor’s income has not just stayed the same, but has declined.

So the logic is – there are X number of dollars (it’s not going to increase) to spend. ‘Scarifices’ have to be made. The Government controls the speed limit so the Government can control who has insurance and who doesn’t. That X number of dollars (it’s not going to increase) has to be spred around.

Below is an op-ed. Money is more important then people.

Small steps to insure that the ‘greatest Country in thre World’ and the ONLY industrialized Nation in the World is fine with NOT providing health care to ALL it’s citizens.

And all because it costs too much……

‘By Michael R. Strain’ :

“In a world of scarce resources, a slightly higher mortality rate is an acceptable price to pay for certain goals — including more cash for other programs”.

Translation : Poor people dying is OK as long as the oil companies get their subsidies and rich people get their tax cuts.

—————————-

‘We make such trade-offs all the time’.

‘Say conservatives have their way with Obamacare, and the Supreme Court deals it a death blow or a Republican president repeals it in 2017’.

‘Some people who got health insurance as a result of the Affordable Care Act may lose it. In which case, liberals like to say, some of Obamacare’s beneficiaries may die’.

Translation : Even though I just said a “slightly higher mortality rate is an acceptable price to pay”, – when Liberals say you could die, they are just causing unnecessary fear.

———————

‘Columnist Jonathan Chait wrote recently that those who may die are victims of ideology — “collateral damage” incurred in conservatives’ pursuit “of a larger goal.”

‘If these are the stakes, many liberals argue, then ending Obamacare is immoral’.

‘Except, it’s not’.

‘Consider, for example, speed limits’.(1)

Translation : A human life can be compared to a car’s speed.
