The GOP defending Socialism? LOL!
creation of Medicare would push the country toward socialism. - Reagan
Well, did it, or didn’t it?
We also just “Alinskyed” Van Jones. You just can’t trust us Republican communists! LOL!
Beth Fouhy is a liar. Republicans are against Medicare because Obama wants to socialize all medicene. Thats it.
Beth Fouhy former CNN - executive producer
She is also associated with Nedra Pickler, the MOST famous pro-Obama reporter at the AP. She is also associated with John Decker, who works for the Sacramento Bee
Conservatives aren’t in this fight to save Medicare.
With Democrat Control of Congress and the Executive Branch, we have simply adopted a philosophy of ‘containment.’ if it’s even possible. Our victories are only small because we aren’t really rolling back any Socialism, we don’t have the power. We are in the fight of our lives just to score little victories in the push for Marxist expansionism.
This article does put things into perspective. We still have to ally ourselves with demos that we historically have rejected or opposed.
We have a long way to go. We can only fight to see that our nation isn’t taken even further down this path towards totalitarianism.
We hope to retake part of government in 2010 but that will really be just the beginning for us in the preservation of this Republic.
Right now, it’s just tooth and nail to make sure it’s not all gone before then.
I see it as using a small fire to prevent the big fire.
We never wanted to slash medicare, which is of course a government-run program but which is paid for by people with their own taxes.
We did want to privatize it, to make it more efficient, to eventually get people to contribute to a private version that would cost less and remove government from it. But we never wanted to cut seniors off from it.
That was a lie told by the democrats, which has now become gospel; that it was a lie makes them all “shocked” now that we aren’t living up to their lie.
This is a fair criticism. The rats have been successfully demagogueing social security for decades. R’s are now doing the same for medicare.
I don’t like it. But if it’s the only way to prevent socialized medicine from being shoved everyone’s throats, I’ll demagogue the crap out of it. That keeps the damage by the government limited to medicare—hard to fix, but it’s better than having to fix the damage Obama is fixin’ to do to all of health care.
The MSM returns to its tactics from the 2004 and 2008 elections and Republican honeymoon period in early ‘95: if you can’t attack the Republicans from the left, attack them from the right.
Kind of makes you wonder what the effectiveness of the AP’s propaganda is here. What small-government conservative gives a rat’s rear what the AP says these days?
