Jason Chaffetz, Just Another Elitist Snob Republican Politician Destroying The Country

Chaffetz
Ok, the guy’s an ass because he’s your typical elitist right wing snob Republican politician who will never have to choose between the two. Chaffetz is out of Utah but unfortunately he has the power to kill access to healthcare for people nationwide wide. We can post complaints about him and his ilk on social media websites all day, every day, but it will not make one bit of difference because their constituents will still vote to reelect them. To voters like those, no matter how bad their lives are made by the Republicans they keep in office, they fear liberals and Democrats far more. To the average Republican voter, no matter what hell they’re put through during the dance (should they even be aware of it) they’ll stick with the ones who brung ’em.
 
Contending that there should be a choice is what makes him and the Republicans both venal and murderous. They view health care as a commodity, something to be purchased if one chooses to. They don’t view it as a human right and as a core function of any enlightened government to provide at no cost to its citizens. I see that Republicans are murderous because they plan to limit the poor’s access to Medicaid. In addition, for those whose income is too high to qualify for Medicaid, their Obamacare replacement will boost health care premiums and costs even higher, because everything legislation they pass that promises to increase competition and lower costs actually do the opposite of both. Look at the costs of airfare, cell phone service, cable TV, and…healthcare, every other industry where mergers and takeovers were allowed to run rampant (the Democrats being equally guilty in this). Don’t buy into the analysis that Obamacare had nothing to do with the original Koch brothers’ Heritage Foundation healthcare plan pushed by Robert Dole and then implemented by Massachusetts under Governor Mitt Romney. The whole thing is Republican through and through except for the prohibition against denying people with pre-existing conditions and the Medicaid expansion (which many Republican governors refused to implement).
 
And now those who giveth plan to taketh away come 2020. Healthcare will cost more for everyone but members of Congress, the Prez and the VP, and, of course, the wealthy. The rest of us will have less choice and more costs. And then the Republicans plan to destroy both Social Security and Medicare in the very same fashion If only national elections were like an open primary where everyone could vote wherever and for whoever they chose. But if the Republicans have their way, in about ten years it will be only those who they have designated as deserving to vote who will rubber stamp all elections as Republican victories. When that comes about, what Trump is currently doing to destroy the federal government and this country will only be a precursor to irrevocable and fatal damage. You thought things were getting bad under Trump? Just wait…

An Open Letter To The Koch Brothers

Dear Chuck and Dave,

That’s some creative team you’ve got working for you there. Yeah, some creativity coursing through their little minds.  No wonder you guys are such a potent political force with such creativity ready to be called upon at a moment’s notice.

Take this Generation Opportunity campaign targeted at young, healthy people—especially college students–in an effort to convince them to opt out of Obamacare.  Stroke of genius, that.  Obamcare needs young, healthy, low Obamacare-usage people in the income pool to offset the costs of paying for all the healthcare for older and much younger, not as healthy, high-Obamacare usage people.  Problem is, you overlooked one tiny but ever so critical detail. You targeted young people—many of them college students–and by and large, young college students are in their early 20s. Under Obamacare, these young people don’t have to opt out of anything because they will already be covered under their parents’ Obamacare health plans until they are 26. What’s that Mr. President? The President just said, “Checkmate.”

And have you checked the statistics, fellas? Young people are more prone to drive fast and recklessly so they get into more serious auto accidents…where they would need healthcare coverage to pay their medical bills. Young people engage in contact sports like football, baseball, basketball, ice hockey, soccer, and rugby.  Young athletes get hurt, they get concussions, they need medical attention which would be paid for by…Obamacare.  Ever watch “Jackass” or see the movies? Young people love to emulate these stunts because young people like to prove their indestructibility and immortality by performing stupid and potentially lethal stunts.  The ERs are full of these young people and Obamacare will pay their bills. Young people—especially college students—like to drink alcohol—a lot. And when they’re drunk they may drive fast and recklessly, engage in contact sports, and perform “Jackass” stunts.  And you want them to feed off their self-image of indestructibility and immortality and opt out of Obamacare under your imposed delusion that they don’t need it? Granted, not all young people are this prone to serious injury but enough of them potentially sure as hell are.

Is there no bottom to your sociopathic callousness and greed? I think that if we keep digging, we’ll reach China long before we hit bottom with you guys.

Sincerely,

Farlefty
