"This is the cause of my life - new hope that we will break the old gridlock and guarantee that every American - north, south, east, west, young, old - will have decent quality health care as a fundamental right and not a privilege."
Its only fitting that they would name Obamacare after a man who refused to take steps save a life because it would cost him too much.
Its basically the jist of the bill in a nutshell.
Just consider them ‘deliciously exploitable’. ;-)
Well he’s been known for killing someone before their time in the past so I would think this works perfect for the death panels...
A dead Bill and a dead Ted.
They can call it god’s, country’s, Kennedy’s or gottahaveit care, but everyone will still protest and demonstrate against it.
Lipstick on a pig is just, after all, lipstick on a pig.
Guess the libtards didn’t learn anything from the Wellstone memorial hatefest.
In memory of that great American, Teddy (Chappaquiddick) Kennedy we must pass this bill, unknown by the Congress who would be voting on it but, written by a gaggle of communist twits who would turn this nation into a third world country as quickly as you could bat your eye!
I DEMAND an itemized HOSPITAL BILL for that a’hole!! I’ll bet the government spent a minimum of $5 million on the SOB. I just hope they flush twice to get totally rid of the stink of that jerk.
Well now, seems he took extraordinary measure to try and preserve his own life and his son's when he chad cancer. Mary Jo was just a nobody, don't you know. Not a member of the dynasty. Just a throw away.
You can put a hat on a pig but it's still a pig...
NUTS!I like my healthcare just the way it is and I pay for it out of “MY” pocket and I don’t expect anyone to pay my way.That’s the American way.
The Ted Kennedy Memorial Healthcare Bill
Includes a bottle of scotch for each patient.
Free swimming lessons to all Americans.
Subsidized lobotomies for all your sisters.
Lots of free condoms for those waitress sandwich moments.
Oh Boy! I can hardly wait!
Rush should have trademarked it weeks ago.
Yes, because then we can ALL travel to North Carolina to see the best specialist in the world when we get sick.
The government does not have the right to create "rights", but it certainly tries its best! The government cannot create privileges either, all it can do is prevent you from something if you do not "qualify" (pass a test affirming your ability).
I fear a government that tries to "create" rights.
This reminds me of “Gentlemen, we’ve got to protect our phony baloney jobs! We must do something immediately!”. Commemorating a dead killer whale will not sway many minds on this.
Should be the Chappaquiddic bill - it’s sinking.
Michael Jackson was honored as well by this Legislature.
To organized labor types, a right is a concession by the other side. A benefit.
Keep your laws off my BODY!
Well, health care sure is a right! I have a right to food and clothes and a house and a new car, too.
The average citizen is subject to
* all the flaws of socialized health care,
* seriously ill are encouraged to "die and get out of the way" in the words of a prominent Democrat,
while the ruling class, their rich and influential friends will, like Ted Kennedy,
* be averse to giving up -- no expense is too much to provide them with the best health care available.
Yes sir! That's it!
Ted Kennedy Memorial Healthcare
Bill and Teds excellent adventure!
Michael Jackson was honored as well by this Legislature. ........................... NEVER IN MY LIFETIME HAVE I EVER WITNESS A CONGRESS LIKE THIS ONE. It is true the lunatics have taken over the asylum.
Ah, the Democrats’ “Wellstone” Syndrome surfaces.
What foundamental rights?Health,wealth,job,fooding,housing,intelligence,hollydays,sunshine,no global warming....But no duties? Typically liberal!
What kind of Health cares? What about the right to GOOD and appropriate health cares?
ChappaquiddickCare! Same old garbage as ObamaCare.
Americans will be calling it the Capaquidick plan.
If your in a hospital and you hear someone in the ER refer to a patient as an “OB”, that would be triage code for “Forget it, she’s a gonner”.
Yes, by all means...
Name this bill after a man who clung to his PRIVATE health care to his dying day.
Not that I doubt for one moment that Ted will be allowed to be buried in Arlington (which I just heard on the news) my review of requirements suggest he is NOT qualified
The closest I can find is this:
"Any former member of the Armed Forces who served on active duty (other than for training) AND who held any of the following positions:
* An elective office of the U.S. Government (such as a term in Congress).
As far as I know, Kennedy served in active duty in the military, so anyone know how one gets a waiver?
Bob Fertik is the president of Democrats.com and co-founder of AfterDowningStreet.org
On ABC's This Week with George Stephanopolous, the host asked President-Elect Obama about the number one-ranked question from Democratic activist Bob Fertik: "Will you appoint a Special Prosecutor - ideally Patrick Fitzgerald - to independently investigate the gravest crimes of the Bush Administration, including torture and warrantless wiretapping?" Obama's answer was far from definitive - he said he was still "evaluating" the question, but was more inclined to "look forward as opposed to looking backwards." He did suggest that Attorney General designee Eric Holder would have some say in potential prosecutions.
Their faulty reasoning is easy to put to flight if we just ask the right questions and keep the pressure on.
Everyone who didn't see this coming, the using of the Whales death to push health care, raise their hand!
One other point, ask them why the government wasn't making health care decisions for Kennedy in his last days.
Exactly right - and what's left after they prevent you from various freedoms, are called privileges. So, if you think it through, the only way to justify this process is if ALL freedoms are first denied, and then SOME aspects of them are allowed as privileges.
The word "privilege" is the most devious of all legalisms, for even the largest and most munificent allowance of them still indicates the underlying loss of all true freedom. If only people could understand that...
...but they don't, they don't wanna, and they ain't gonna. Compared to the federal government, P.T. Barnum was a piker.
Yup, name it Ted and kill it off!
I wonder if McCain is going to support the bill since it is named after his buddy.
This is going to be Wellstone II!
“Its only fitting that they would name Obamacare after a man who refused to take steps save a life because it would cost him too much.”
Destroy the Republic as a memorial to Ted Kennedy? I guess that would be an appropriate memorial for Mr. K.
How about a Ted Kennedy Memorial Swimming Vest
Or a Ted Kennedy Memorial Topless Bar and a Ted Kennedy Memorial Waitress Sandwich
These are more fitting
We might as well name it after him. Like all those who will vote for it, Teddy hasn't read it either.
I hereby coin the term “KopechneKare”
They can change the name to Kennedycare, but it still won’t work.
In memory of Ted, I wonder if near-drowning will be covered? Or acute alcoholism?
Kennedy Kare is the new Wellstone Funeral. That didn’t go over so well last time.
So says Exalted Cyclops Bobbie Byrd.
