On this Sunday morning, when forgiveness is the topic of the sermon in churches all across the nation, I am going to unabashedly state that there should be no forgiveness for the republican senators who voted against the straight and full repeal of Obamacare. These seven individuals, for their own selfish ambitions, chose to preserve the status quo of a healthcare system which is drowning working Americans in premiums and deductibles, not to mention inferior healthcare service.
Seven republicans, who repeatedly promised their constituents that they wanted to gut the Affordable Healthcare Act and approach the healthcare debacle through the lens of affordability and consumer choice, reversed positions when the chips were down. To put it simply, they lied.
When it became apparent that the full repeal of the disastrous Obamacare was a reality, the liars backed away from their pledges to support the nullification of the Democrats’ grand scheme to control the masses by regulating their healthcare.
Who were these duplicitous impostors? Let me begin with my own senator, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia who is also an assistant to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. So, what’s up with that, Shelley? Why are you coming down in opposition to the big guy, assuming that McConnell really wanted the repeal?
And then we have Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Of course, there’s John McCain of Arizona, and Susan Collins of Maine who has never failed to thumb her nose at conservatives when given the chance. Dean Heller of Nevada, Rob Portman of Ohio, and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee are the final three senators who gave the kiss of Judas to We the People who still have some sense about us.
Remember these names. Circulate these names. And work diligently to unseat them in their next primary elections.
The republican base depended on these seven senators. They took them at their word when they gave their word of honor to roll back the socialized healthcare system which is heading for single-payer mode and rationing. But on the other hand, republicans must take part of the blame for assuming these men and women had any honor, because they don’t.
Were these seven senators unaware of the sad case of baby Charlie Gard? Were they not watching when the British government denied the parents of Charlie Gard the right to pay for their son’s healthcare themselves? Did they not recognize the overreach of a government empowered by their socialized medicine program?
It is one set of circumstances when the government restricts the allotment of money for the care of a baby they deem to be braindead, but it’s an entirely different set of circumstances when the government prohibits parents from spending their own money for experimental care which may save their baby’s life.
When a government can hold your loved one hostage in the hospital to prevent you from choosing a different option to his healthcare than the one mandated by the government-run medical system, tyranny has arrived.
The decision of life or death for Charlie Gard became the court’s decision. Once the court ruled that Charlie must die, his parents were denied the right to allow him to die at home. They were ordered to let their baby die at Hospice.
Think about that one. By the very nature of the government-controlled healthcare, the government can decide when and where you die.
It is imperative that Obamacare be repealed fully. And those republicans who stand in the way of ridding this nation of a law which will surely end with millions of Charlie Gards, should be punished at the polls. They should be characterized as liars, and they should be branded as traitors.
Our healthcare system is sacred. It is not the volleyball of politicians to score political points with their donors and their entitlement-driven constituents.
SHELLEY MOORE CAPITO-WV, JOHN MCCAIN-ARIZONA, LAMAR ALEXANDER-TENNESSEE, LISA MURKOWSKI-ALASKA, SUSAN COLLINS-MAINE, DEAN HELLER-NEVADA, and ROB PORTMAN-OHIO. Etch these names in your memory. Work against these republicans in the primaries. Make them pay for selling their souls to the wickedness which is the underlying principle of the Affordable Healthcare Act.
They are the “Unforgiven,” and they need to be sent to political purgatory, never to be heard from again!
