Lap Dogs Trot In Line

Posted: 10/19/2007 by Floyd in Labels:

Let's cut to the chase shall we,,Republicans throw the middle-class under the bus. That is about as simple as it gets, the Republicans who voted as usual to follow Bush's lead have come up with absolutely nothing in trying to defend their position. Except this position "government medicine" well, seemed good for the last 10 years, the other position,,the cut-off line is to high,,(middle-class kids have health-care) why not come out and say it like it is that is what they are saying,,middle-class kids are all covered so they don't need it. Oh I forgot one last argument, cost to much,,I won't even go there.

What we have are elected officials that can't think for themselves, if Bush was not there to guide them they would be as lost as bird in a tornado, you don't see me speak frankly that often but this just got me to lay on the line what exactly is taking place, but I also know you guys know all this already, what happened is a disgrace to middle-America.
House Fails to Override Child Health Bill Veto - New York Times


  1. This was just too much, I cannot see how anyone with kids and that is middle class can vote for any of the Republicans and two Democrats that helped this President veto.

  1. Jim says:

    This whole SCHIP business brings out so many emotions in me. I find it more incredible than ever that Bush can stand up at a press conference and act folksy, kind of like just a regular guy, as he explains why he simply has to ream middle class folks and jeopardize the lives of their children for his ideology.

  1. Floyd says:

    Thanks let's talk and Jim for coming by and commenting, you are right Let's Talk the 2 Dem's that voted against it do not deserve to be sent back to Washington, these would be no better than the Republicans who are standing against progress.

    Afterwords he stands up Jim and acts like he is just a good 'ol boy after reaming us, they must think we are really dumb?

    This was just concerning children and not adults, and pray tell if you are middle-class and don't have insurance you will pay,,I have done this before so I know, my charge to get decent insurance was $650 a month at the time I needed it that was over half my pay at that time, and it was years ago,,to insure two to three children they could not pay those rates and meet their other bills.

    So, can they afford to pay the outlandish premiums and meet their mortgage payment and other bills, absolutely not. You see Jim for years they have been fed the lie that managed health-care don't work this is to keep the medical lobby happy, and as long as America believes that lie the middle-class will continue to pay the bulk of the taxes for this country while continuing to get raped by the system.

    It is a heartless act of comservatism, however Pete Stark summed it up best:

    I’m just amazed that the Republicans are worried that we can’t pay for insuring an additional 10 million children. They sure don’t care about finding $200 billion to fight the illegal War in Iraq.

    You’re gonna tell us lies? Like you’re telling us today? Is that how you’re gonna fund the war? You don’t have money to fund the war or children. But you’re gonna spend it, to blow up innocent people if we could get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.

    President Bush’s statements about children’s health shouldn’t be taken any more seriously than his lies about the War in Iraq. The truth is that that Bush just likes to blow things up – in Iraq, in the United States, and in Congress.

  1. Floyd says:

    Exactly Larry,,I watched yesterday on CNN the over and over statement of Pete Stark,,there is strategy in what they're doing.

    Here's my take on it,,talk and talk and analyze the statement that Pete Stark said and by doing so the news agencies such as CNN and others are keeping our minds off the real issue and that issue is the throwing middle-class children under the bus by mostly the Republicans and don't get me wrong the 2 Dem's are responsible also, but mostly due to the lap dogs who follow no matter what.

    See they assume if they keep American minds off the real issues at hand, then out of sight and out of mind, I think they are underestimating Americans by far.

    You are right again Larry he can not be taken seriously about things that are said, the opponents of this SCHIP legislation can not produce a logical argument of why not to increase it, the argument of cost does not apply here we all know about the run away spending of the last Congress and this administration, that is the reason I say it is not a logical reason, the Republicans use this phrase only as convenience. For example; the SCHIP legislation that effects the middle-class, if we were talking Capital Gains then this would not apply.

    I think most middle-class have kind of got it figured out, to me it is as plain as your hand in front of your face.

    Most evangelicals vote for them simply on religious purposes, did not Jesus say; Suffer little children to come unto me, for theirs is the kingdom of God. But I never write off the evangelicals they have read enough of the Bible to discern right from wrong.

    Sorry for the long response, just got on a roll.
