As you know, I am a Deaniac, you can’t believe how giddy I got this morning when I heard Dean was debating Newt ‘Assmunch’ Gingrich this morning on ABC’s This Week. Dean was very precise, (paraphrasing) “A public insurance option would be a CHOICE not a REQUIREMENT.” Other great moments was when Howard basically called out Newt’s bullshit about end of life decisions (Republicans are spinning that Obama wants to let old people die instead of treating them). He asked Newt where it was in the current bill’s proposal, and Newt changed the subject, rambling about who knows what. I’m sure the googles will be hot about this tomorrow. I’ll have to give Howard credit, he is getting better at staying on topic, and makes his points short. He should be a political cartoonist.
I also found this letter to the editor about Thune. About time the SD MSM, at least printed something about his crap, too bad they don’t actually investigate and report it.
Have you wondered why Sen. John Thune is against health care reform? Could it be that he received $1,206,176 from the insurance companies, the pharmaceutical industry, and hospitals?
He doesn’t mind using the health care he gets from the government – which means we citizens are paying for his health care. However, he doesn’t want his constituents having the same coverage. Does that make sense? To him it does, financially. But is that why he was elected as our senator? The underinsured and uninsured people in South Dakota ought to be asking him that question, and demanding a truthful answer.
Lobbyists’ money talks in Washington. Apparently, we citizens don’t have the clout to have Mr. Thune’s representation after voting him into office. Now he has other interests. Is his bank account more important to him than the people of South Dakota?
