The Hypocrisy of politicians seems never to disappoint us with the following quote from Sen. Ben Nelson (D) of Nebraska. “If somehow the private market doesn’t respond the way it’s supposed to, then it would trigger a public option, or a government run option.” He indicated the government option would only be rolled out after a few years if private insurers failed to increase competition and restrain costs. Senator Nelson is referring to the contentious healthcare legislation working its way through congress.
Let’s see if I’ve got this right. Senator Nelson belongs to an organization that has all the integrity of rotten fruit. Since when has our wonderful US Government EVER lived up to commitments in a timely manner, or provided any program on time and ON BUDGET? Since when have our esteemed representatives forced the behemoth that is the Federal Government to restrain itself from delving into our wallets with a rapaciousness that would make a great white shark blush! And he has the unmitigated gall to criticize the free market for any possible failing that might come along. Don’t think for a moment that if given a chance to rig the deck that the government won’t do so to trigger a, so called, ‘public option’. Trust is not the first sentiment that comes to mind when dealing with these underhanded swine.
The government, and those who support this public option, need to be marginalized; to be sent to the corner with a dunce cap and treated as the pinheaded little miscreants that they are. Our Federal Government is run by a bunch of elitist contemptible fools. I can only hope that enough level headed voters can see through their filthy con game and throw this stinking garbage and its messenger into a landfill where they belong come 2010. Wake up America, before it’s too late! Our freedom and liberty are not worth giving up for this crowd.
