GOP on the Attack: Plans to “Break” Obama on Health Care Reform

July 19, 2009

(ChattahBox)—South Carolina Republican Senator Jim DeMint joined forces with other conservatives on Friday, and issued a ferocious battle cry reminiscent of Mel Gibson’s portrayal of William Wallace in the movie, “Braveheart,” against President Obama’s health care reform.

Jim DeMint and the GOP, together with insurance company lobbyists are attempting to make a last stand to ensure that health car reform doesn’t become a reality in August, before lawmakers take their summer recess.

Sen. DeMint participated in a conference call to fire up his “tea party” troops, as they readied for a protest at Congressional offices on Friday. The conference call had 104 participants and it was organized by the founder of the group, Conservatives for Patients Rights.

The group is more interested in defeating health care reform for all Americans, by labeling reform as “Government-Run Health Care.” The group’s website contains frightening videos of “victims of government-run health care,” telling their “real-life” stories.

DeMint made clear, that the GOP intended to fight, claw and scratch to delay any vote on health care reform in August.

“I can almost guarantee you this thing won’t pass before August, and if we can hold it back until we go home for a month’s break in August,” lawmakers will return home to hear the voices of “outraged” constituents, said DeMint in the call.

“Senators and Congressmen will come back in September afraid to vote against the American people,” declared DeMint. “[T] his health care issue Is D-Day for freedom in America,” said DeMint.

Enamored with his colorful invectives, DeMint didn’t stop there. “If we’re able to stop Obama on this it will be his Waterloo. It will break him,” said DeMint.

The group, Conservatives for Patients Rights, suggested that its polling showed that the majority of Americans oppose a “government take-over.

However, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll showed that 72 percent of those questioned supported a government-administered insurance plan.

Meanwhile, the GOP’s mantra regarding health care reform is delay, delay, delay.

    Yes, let’s make sure that the poor and middle-class in American don’t have access to even the minimal health care that might keep them alive and working, and paying taxes.

    Have you ever noticed that it’s only rich White Americans who oppose health care reform? Republican Senators, insurance company executives, White Supremacists…

    It’s time to vote the rest of the Republicans out of office. The Republicans only represent racists, bigots, Nazis, and the mentally unstable.

    Dear Old Man
    This non-rich, rural health care provider, who busts buns to continue caring for many “old” men ane women, knows that the impetuously architected “public plan” is going to take from “entitlement” of medicare and other disable people so that others can join in their pool. A public plan at this juncture is merely an attempt to appease the massive public who are befuddled by healthcare, and does nothing to truly solve the problem of rising health care costs. The government AND the insurance companies MUST be taken to task. Must be put under at least 1/2 the scrutiny they apply to every provider, and then the real problems will be revealed so that a healthy, health-care system can re-root, and grow. Don’t confuse those against government run health care for “greedy, rich people!”

    Hey, Old Man, you succeeded in calling us most of the usual things that Democrats say, but didn’t you forget “stupid”? You guys always say the same things over and over and over. Keep saying it so everyone believes it, right?
    I love that opposing the mighty Obama makes us “mentally unstable.” The fact that under 30 percent of his supporters in the election know his policies, yet still support him whole-heartedly sounds like a mental issue to me. One of ignorance.
    BTW, the last person in Congress to have been in the KKK is still there — and he’s a Democrat. Last I checked, they are a racist, white supremecist group.
