Time For Liberals To Be Aggressive

Big deal we got 60 votes to “talk” about Health Care Reform. When you listen to Republican Senator Judd Gregg you can hear the Republican strategy being exposed which the Democrats are not countering! Oh dear we don’t want to be “partisan” now do we? Well I do! If you listen closely you can hear all the sub-issues that Republicans want to use to start in fighting among not just Democrats but Middle Class Americans!

Here is just a partial score card for how the Republicans will achieve victory unless Democrats stop being wimps!

  • Set the young against the elderly! They tried this with their attempt to undermine Social Security by suggesting a private investment account as a substitute for full collection of Social Security Taxes.

  • The nasty trial lawyers are driving up Health Insurance Costs! Bull my dad was a victim of Hospital negligence and a hospital death panel! My family did not sue since our mother could not bear the trauma of going to court.

  • The unhealthy vs the healthy! Next we make those who are healthy feel they are subsidizing the unhealthy lifestyles of those who fall for the fast food industry. Oh but we won’t want to out-law tobacco like we do with marijuana? Not when Republicans and some Democrats make a “killing” with tobacco industry lobbyists!

  • We will be taxed into subservience! Once again the great Republican theme of Government intervention means less freedom! What about insurance companies that are taxing middle class Americans by using money paid in premiums to subsidize Insurance Cartel K-Street lobbying? Where are the Tea Party advocates? This constitutes “Taxation without representation”. Once again the Republicans want to subject individual freedom to Corporate Collectivization! When the police power of a democracy is either corrupted by corporations or eliminated freedom does not increase! When the referee disappears from the ball field it does not increase freedom but instead the power of the bully! This is the freedom that they want to subject America to!

I am tired of President Obama saying things like “we don’t want to point the finger…”! Well I do want to point the finger and give these effete snobs of privilege the middle finger! This whole Health Care Debate is merely a symptom of an underlying disease in America! How can we have “Change We Can Believe In” while companies collect taxes from middle class Americans, in the form of higher insurance premiums and/or reduced benefits to finance their class interests! Oh dear me did you hear what I just said! I said “class interest”. After all companies are people and they have a right to tax me to serve their interests! I would not want shareholders to dip into their deep pockets to finance their self interest when they can dip into my modest pocket and subvert my individual interest to the Corporate Collective!

We need to repeal not just the Bush Tax Cuts but the Reagan Tax Cuts! My God you would think that these people actually earned their money the way some whine and wail about this!

  1. I think that the Democrats are less ‘wimps’ than they are a divided bunch amongst themselves. Their views range from liberal to conservative so getting them to consensus is an act of herding cats.

  2. Thanks you for your input. While I agree that the Democrats have a spectrum of members I would feel more comfortable that the Blue Dogs were honest and real if they were not taking corporate contributions from the Insurance Companies. Money that middle class Americans are “forced” to contribute via premiums and/or reduced benefits, that subsidize not only their K-Street lobbyists but also the so-called “Think Tanks”.

    I would urge liberal and progressive members of Congress to call a moratorium and “amnesty” from criticism to not just Blue Dogs but Republicans who step up to the plate and disclose their corporate contributions to their campaigns. The fact is it does take money to run a campaign and 30 second negative ads to indeed work though most polls show Americans hate them.

    But at the same time Obama and liberals must wage a “holy war” against the Corporate Collectivists who want me to finance their self interest against my own!
