That's Sick

romneycareIt's no secret that President Obama's health care plan owes much to Governor Romney's Massachusetts health care plan. But now Romney is in the peculair position of having to run against his own plan as good Republican's can NEVER say that Democratic legislation is a good idea.

Mittens has yet to come right out and say what his alternative would be but he's dropped enough hints for us to know that his new health care plan should be called the "Thrown to the Wolves" plan.

Basically it's a new tax deduction with no regulation of the health care industry, so it won't take long before health care prices begin sky-rocketing.

Yeah, doesn't sound like a good idea to me, either.

Ideally we need single-payer health care, the same system as most civilized countries in the western world. Obamacare is not perfect but it is, at least, baby-steps designed to wean us away from the co-dependent abuse of insurance companies. We're moving in the right direction but we'll never completely escape the grasp of the insurance giants with corporate sops like Romney at the helm.

Update: I just listened to Mitt Romney's "acceptance" speech in New Hampshire. Did you know that Barack Obama kidnapped the Lindberg baby? It's TRUE, because Romney said it!

I plan on adding a "Romney Lies" page to this site. Mitt just gave me a big, fat, juicy target to aim at.


I know that pizza with mini-hamburgers cooked into the crust is pretty darned cool but just think how suffused with misplaced self-importance you'll feel after Liking the new Raging Pencils Facebook page.



Notes, Notes, and More Notes.

Economics: Two Nobel Prize-winning economists put the lie to Republican bunk that higher taxes on the rich will hurt economic growth.

Politics: President Obama's new health care plan will save Medicare over $200 billion dollars by 2016. Is there no end to this man's incompetence?

Sleaze: In order to be hired at his new job Richard Grenell had to remove 800 of his Twitter posts that were hateful or offensive to women. What's his job? He's Mitt Romney's new spokesman. HE'S MITT ROMNEY'S NEW SPOKESMAN.

Science: Using cocaine will rot your brain. Wow, what a surprise.

Heresy: Because, you know, a Buddhist replacing your muffler would just be silly.

Republican Job Creation Update

republican job creation4-25-2012: The House spent the day busying itself with the legislative version of cleaning its room. In this case it meant passing bills that dealt with adjustments to the boundaries of parklands, land swaps, and the like. No jobs, or anything remotely like them, were created.
