The broader truth of #ObamaCare

No, for me, it is the recklessness of the way Congress acted here — with utter disregard to the ultimate consequences of what it was doing — that is the story. Purely on account of partisan politics, Congress got good and liquored up, went out and got in the car, and sped down the highway at 90 mph, consequences be damned.

Which is why I think Levin's The Liberty Amendments is a fine going-in position. And to you jackwagons who think that I, and other reform-minded Americans, are somehow insincere, lying, duped, or otherwise duplicitous: fall off the planet.

What, you can't handle the truth? (1)

Truly reform minded people are trying to prosecute the people who stole our pensions and put the money back, and they want to bring the troops home and stop the empire building and prosecute the people who send them out on their killing missions. They want to abolish prohibition, on ALL levels, federal, state, and local. They want equal treatment under the law, regardless of economic status, race, etc. and demand an end to privilege based on same. And yes, we want to replace "Obamacare" with medicare for all.

Your sincerity is not in doubt. Your judgement, on the other hand is based on false assumptions about the charismatics, whose spell you are currently under. You remain unaware of the consequences. Perhaps by choice, perhaps not. That depends on whether free will actually exists.

As to your desire for our untimely demise, I forgive you :-)

The last item on that list just does not fit. You want freedom and justice - but not in medicine, just everywhere else. Why?

If you are against the concentration of power, you have to allow us to use whatever resources we have to compete, to open the market to all comers.

Exactly my point.

Gotta watch these Lefties: spitballing is the better part of their valor.
