Bette Midler: If We'd Lost The Revolutionary War, We'd Have Universal Health Care
breitbart.com ^ | 7/4/13 | Christian Toto

Bette Midler is taking a different approach.

The Parental Guidance star imagines a world in which the U.S. lost the war for its independence, but it's not like that's a bad thing. After all, she argues, that would mean we'd finally have socialized medicine.

I guess she is saying that if the British won, we would be under the crown and have Universal Health Care. Sheesh what thinking. Oh well. She got her wish cuz we have Universal Health Care now so what is the problem? The liberals beginning with Romney got their wish.

“If We’d Lost The Revolutionary War, We’d Have Universal Health Care”

If we lost the cold war we would have socialized medicine.

And.. we’d have soldiers being hacked to death by muslims on the streets and disarmed, fearful bystanders watching helplessly.

F*** yourself, Midler.

When Barbra Streisand stopped making public comments on political issues, I was worried that no one would step up to fill the role of “stupidest female signer-actress who makes obnoxious, airheaded liberal comments.” I’m glad to see Bette is stepping up to the challenge.

Stick to singing, Bette as your pea brain won’t allow you to do anything else. I am constantly amazed at these people. I can hardly believe they actually live in America. It must be their wacko egos and PR. When we need your stupidity Bette, we will let you know.

She is among that group of radical liberals, who think that Obamacare didn’t go far enough.

These particular liberals aren’t excited about Obamacare, because it isn’t single payer, government operated healthcare. These liberals object to the fact that we still have privatly owned hospitals and healthcare providers, and that doctors are still independent business men and women. In their utopian world, everyone connected with healthcare would be a government employee or government bureaucrat.

I don’t understand these people. What does she have to worry about. She will just pay out of pocket if something isn’t covered. I don’t care that she made her money by singing and making movies. She deserves every penny. However, those of us who were not born with that type of gift are going to have to forgo some coverage and tests with medical if this Universal Health Care goes through.

No, Bette, the Brits would have used America as a resource to expand their empire. Americans would still be 2nd class citizens, slavery would still exist, and no, there wouldn't be health care for all because all the advancements that came from this side of the pond would never have happened. Empires, sad to say, stifle growth and innovation.

A scratch she cannot itch.

Just think, if Hitler had won WW2, as a Jew, she would be dead! When will these “self inflated sense of worth” actors and athletes get a clue that the real world only wants to see them act? Leave the intellectual exercise to people who have the capacity to understand facts and data.
