WITH 5 MILLION NEW UNINSURED FAMILIES JOINING THE MILLIONS
NEW ANSWERS WITH HOPE AND VISION
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER
Last week, I was contacted by a woman with a seriously ill child. She has been terrified out of her mind by reports that the new Obama health plan is going to require that doctors euthenize (read: "kill") her critically ill son. One of our writers almost reported her to the Secret Service for threats against the president until cooler heads prevailed.
Parents with sick kids should not be exploited by sick and pulstulant pigs grown fat on the stolen gains of the bloated blood suckers of the insurance and health care industry. Let them stick to lying to malingering golfers, redneck bar flies and those bi-polar types that are all "down" and no "up."
Here is the "Conservacare" program:
- SPEND YOUR SAVINGS AND SELL EVERYTHING YOU OWN TO PAY DOCTORS
- FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY
- IF YOU ARE SICK, JUST SHOW UP AND MAKE THE EMERGENCY ROOM TREAT YOU FOR FREE
All that debate wasted. The answer is simple. No programs, no taxes, no complications. Everything will be paid for by magic.
If only I were kidding. This really is the program. Hospitals simply bill paying patients more to make up for the losses from "Conservacare" walk-ins. The genius and simplicity of "supply side" economics is amazing.
Need your toe nails trimmed? Show up at emergency.
Hangover? Take a seat at emergency and see what 2 grand of tests and IVs can do.
I imagine Michael Steele and his brain trust sitting up all night working out what to tell the Tea Bag/Turf and Birther crowd, America’s lunatic fringe.
Nothing really matters anymore, not veterans care, not idiotic wars nobody could ever win. The only people in the whole world that matter are insurance company executives and their billions of dollars a year in bonuses.
Who needs a job, you can simply write yourself a bonus. All you need is a checkbook and it doesn’t have to be yours.
Homeless? There are foreclosures everywhere and if you can’t find one of those, look for a nice place with folks on an extended vacation. Simply break a window and move in. Who knew life could be so simple.
If the police show up, simply tell them that Michael Steele has found a new brand of conservative self sufficiency.
I like the way the Republican party is going. Need food? Get a big purse, a jacket with huge pockets and shop for free, the old fashioned way. It worked for the barbarian hordes, it can work for you too.
You might ask, didn’t the insurance companies go bust and get bailed out with taxpayer funds? Weren’t they the first to go?
Isn’t it true that the insurance industry actually crashed the stock market and brought down banks because of their irresponsible fiscal policies? Isn’t AIG an insurance company?
I can assure you that there is no need to think about any of this. Your head will hurt, your eyes will start to blurr and you will end up on a hard chair in an emergency room for 4 or 5 hours getting some of that magical free health care the old fashioned conservative way.
All you have to do is cheat, lie and steal.
Sounds like a plan to me.
