Bush daughter 'glad' Obama health care passed
CNN ^ | 6/14/10 | Alexander Mooney

Posted on 06/14/2010 10:47:59 AM PDT by MissTed

One of the daughters of former President George W. Bush isn't following the Republican Party line when it comes to the issue of the health care legislation that cleared Congress last spring without any GOP support.

In an interview on Fox News Sunday, Barbara Bush said she's "glad" Democrats passed the massive spending measure and President Barack Obama signed it into law.

"Why do, basically, people with money have good health care and why do people who live on lower salaries not have good health care?" the 28-year old said.

"Health should be a right for everyone." Asked specifically what she though about the president's health care initiative, Bush replied with a smile, "That is a good question - obviously the health care reform bill was highly debated by a lot of people and I guess I'm glad the bill was passed."

Good!

One would imagine she'd not get much Republican support.

This is a problem ~ guy gets elected to public office, he's away from home much of the time, either in Washington, or campaigning, and who's teaching his daughters what?

Why it's the Leftwingtards at the schools telling them what to think.

Darn, I guess they’re all stupid. Pathetic losers that sell their country down the river (their inheritance in other words) for a mess of pottage.

I’m beginning to think the Bush family is as st00pit as the libs made them out to be - especially the women.

It does honestly say something about her parents.

People try to say that the children are no representation on the parents, but they are.

Same goes for the Cheney offspring.

It’s people her age who will suffer and pay the most under Gov run health care. Dang that ironic justice thing.

Looks like Bush did a poor job raising his daughters in addition to being a poor President.

There is no hope for most of our kids in their twenties. They are products of the public school and socialist college professors. They truly believe millions of people are starving in this country. (Sure, just look around Walmart.) They truly believe the evil rich folks are keeping poor people down. They truly believe that poor folks and illegals are being thrown out of emergency rooms and denied care. They’ve been brainwashed.

A chip off the old block(head). Guess she spends a lot of time dicussing politics with her grandma Barbara and mother Laura who supports the nomination of Kagan and thinks that the Arizona Illegal Alien Law is wrong.

THe Bushes are globalist blockheads - every last one of them and although I hate Obama and want him OUT, I DON’T miss her idiot father.

She has an opinion shared by many. Kids aren’t clones of their parents as we have learned via Reagan, Bush, McCain, and many others.

She was asked, she answered. I say leave her be.

"Health should be a right for everyone."

The bimbo probably meant to say "health care should be a right..." ...although she certainly hasn't earned the benefit of the doubt.

She doesn’t understand even the passage of healthcare, the rich will still get good healthcare while the lower classes will be subject to crap care.

Why do, basically, people with money have good health care and why do people who live on lower salaries not have good health care?” the 28-year old said.

“you gotta be rich to think like that!”

Here's the choice:
Ration by means (if you have money, you get the best care).
Rationing by Government Bureaucrat

OK, but I wish we could get just one of the offspring of our leftist presidents to come out as a conservative.

I got no problems with her. I think what she’s working on has lots of merit. She’ll have to learn for herself about health care.

She’s basically parroting her mother who has recently revealed herself as a liberal. Not that George was ever a conservative. We’ve essentially had 20 years of leadership in the Whitehouse with liberals of one stripe or another in charge. Now we have a full blown Socialist. No wonder the press can so easily vilify anyone who dares to mention the Constitution.

Does she think that the health care that she will have under Obamacare will be the same health care that the poor have?

She clearly hasn’t thought her answer through.

No it doesn’t. My kids are the same - but I’m starting to sense a shift as they get older. It’s going to take a while though.

are you kidding? OUR kids in their twenties should have been raised properly by US, and taught to think for themselves so as to avoid brainwashing! i have 3 kids- 21, 19 and 16. They can detect a liberal professor/teacher within one class period and can argue their conservative points of view effectivly in papers and in clas. To say that there is NO HOPE for OUR KIDS in their twenties is to abdicate OUR responsibility and i can’t believe a conservative would say/do such a thing.
I saw the Barbara Bush interview and she is her mother’s daughter. Laura Bush couldn’t wait to get out there and let everyone know where she disagreed with W on politics and i think a whole lot less of her because of it.

You will get no argument out of me on that one. I don’t ever want to see or hear from that bunch again. This family is nothing but the Kennedys with morals. They are Northeast elitest snobs who look down on the middle class like the rest of them.

By sticking up for the poor it takes care of their guilt for being rich and living large generation after generation.
