Rep. Wasserman Schultz says she 'earned Cadillac' healthcare coverage
examiner.com ^ | 5/7/12 | Jay Schorr

Posted on 05/07/2012 1:52:14 PM PDT by ColdOne

When asked if average Americans should receive the same quality health insurance as that of their elected officials, Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz told a group of South Florida healthcare workers that she “earned” her benefits, implying that her constituents had not.

“Yes, she really said that,” related Dr. Norman Palgon, a Hallandale Beach-based internist who was in attendance at a forum the Congresswoman conducted last year to garner support for ObamaCare. The good doctor was non-too-pleased with what he clearly felt was the congresswoman’s imperious attitude.

Wasserman Schultz, 45, who also is Chair of the Democratic National Committee, is a career politician who has never worked a day in the private sector. She has become a ubiquitous congressional proponent for ObamaCare, appearing on network television news shows extolling the President’s healthcare plan, in addition to serving as chief cheerleader for Obama’s re-election.

Progressives never matured beyond their teenage years. "I'm so much better than you, and smarter, ..." They are emotional children and should never be allowed to be in charge of anything. This is why character matters, not just intelligence or social skill.

The early apples were now ripening, and the grass of the orchard was littered with windfalls. The animals had assumed as a matter of course that these would be shared out equally; one day, however, the order went forth that all the windfalls were to be collected and brought to the harness-room for the use of the pigs. At this some of the other animals murmured, but it was no use. All the pigs were in full agreement on this point, even Snowball and Napoleon. Squealer was sent to make the necessary explanations to the others.

“Comrades!” he cried. “You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. I dislike them myself. Our sole object in taking these things is to preserve our health. Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organisation of this farm depend on us. Day and night we are watching over your welfare. It is for YOUR sake that we drink that milk and eat those apples. Do you know what would happen if we pigs failed in our duty? Jones would come back! Yes, Jones would come back! Surely, comrades,” cried Squealer almost pleadingly, skipping from side to side and whisking his tail, “surely there is no one among you who wants to see Jones come back?”

Now if there was one thing that the animals were completely certain of, it was that they did not want Jones back. When it was put to them in this light, they had no more to say. The importance of keeping the pigs in good health was all too obvious. So it was agreed without further argument that the milk and the windfall apples (and also the main crop of apples when they ripened) should be reserved for the pigs alone.

That's how she earned better health insurance than most of her tax-paying constituents have. See, she's working for "the public." Not grubbing around trying to make a buk in the private sector. You know, with people who change oil, cook hamburgers, clean people's teeth.

Of course, if she's like most of her colleagues, she'll have a net worth at least $10 million, but she earned it. Serving the public.

Socialists are all the same. They want to ‘redistribute’ what you’ve earned to them, ‘cause you’re greedy and they’re much more deserving. But keep your hands of their loot. Redistribution only happens when they may profit, never when they might lose.

The beauty of a secular ‘values’ system is that they don’t even recognize what complete hypocrites they are. Since they are the judge of their own morality, they always judge in their own favor.

Is Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz ‘gambling’ with her future?

09/30/2010

Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz recently blasted proposals to allow individuals to invest a portion of their Social Security taxes, gravely warning of the “risky gamble” of investing.

“If that had happened in the last couple of years…you would have ended the protections that people have in the twilight of their life as we know it,” she said to Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan on CNN.

“Investing in the stock market is a risky gamble. It’s certainly not good for senior citizens or for the next generation to preserve Social Security. That will end Social Security,” she said.

On the one hand, it’s certainly true that many investors lost big in the financial crisis. The S&P 500 is down roughly 20 percent from where it was in 2007, when the crisis began.

On the other hand, it seems Wasserman Shultz may need to heed her own warnings. According to her most recent financial disclosure form, Wasserman Shultz may be, if she believes what she told viewers of CNN, gambling with the twilight of her life.

In 2009, two years into the financial crisis, Wasserman Shultz and her husband Paul purchased between $25,011 and $200,000 in mutual fund investments in retirement accounts.

Wasserman Shultz also owns between $100,001 and $250,000 in common shares for the Community Bank of Broward, where her husband works.

Personally; was desperate for Newt to valued/apprciated. . .and supported. He was not. Last Repub standting is MItt. Hurts but if you imagine the 'embedded evil' that Obama has sown in 'his name' for every minute he has been in public view and in 'high office; can match that of Romeny; then 'your choice'; of course!

How about, we rephrase/substitute, any dictator with 'Jones' or just the entire National Socialist Party' of Gernmany; wishing against a Repub RINO; and then take a 'collective temperature for a 'reality check up'.

This is not quite 'devil versus deep blue sea'. Last I checked; we can at least, swim in the sea. . .

Strange.

According to the Wasserman-Schultzes and Elizabeth Warrens of the world, the successful in the private economy have not truly earned what they have, because it was all earned through the use of common goods which have been paid for by all of us. Their wealth should therefore be redistributed in the name of "fairness." Nevermind that most of the taxes that pay for those common goods are paid for by the successful and that everybody has the same opportunity to use those common goods

However, the special benefits of the governing class, that are actually paid for by taxpayer directly, have been earned.
