Of all the stupid arguments I’ve ever heard for leaving our murderous healthcare system as-is, this one takes the cake.

My dad was a WWII vet. He was there, on the beach, on the 6th of June in 1944. And I’m guessing that if he’d been around to hear the “Rapture Rick” Santorum version of D-Day, he’d have needed to head to the VA due to the stroke he’d surely have suffered.

With “competition” like this, the present President could be a tree and still poll better than these idiots.

 

Newly minted GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum is appalled that President Obama would disrespect those who fought at Normandy by not trusting them to make their own health care decisions. “Those Americans risked everything so they could make that decision on their health care plan,” he said Monday.

Santorum was speaking at a rally in Pennsylvania to mark his official entry into the race for president, and railed against those who oppose Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) proposal that effectively ends Medicare as we know it, and instead gives seniors a voucher to buy their own plan. These people, he said, “want to hook you.”

“They believe in themselves, the smart people, the planners, the folks in Washington who can make decisions better than you can,” he said, using what he called “Mediscare” as an example. “They’re saying to seniors, ‘you need to trust us. We are the ones who are gonna make decisions what every senior can have. We cant trust seniors to make
decisions.’”

But, Santorum said, what he and Paul Ryan want to do is “give people the resources to go out and choose for themselves choose what’s best for themselves.”

Unlike Obama, he continued, who is spitting in the face of those Americans who fought on D-Day, 67 years ago today. “Almost 60,000 average Americans had the courage to go out and charge those beaches on Normandy, to drop out of airplanes who knows where, and take on the battle for freedom,” Santorum said.

 

And I knew a lot of those Americans, due to who my father was. And damn near every one of them was disgusted with the Rushpubliscum Party 20 years ago. I can imagine what they’d have to say about things NOW.

More disgusting Rushpubliscum grave dancing. I should not be surprised, and I should not be angered, but you know…. sometimes I still am.
