Some stupid Republican during the hearing mentioned taxes… He has yet to emerge from the hole he dug for himself…

Fact is, taxes aren’t even an issue anymore… Survival of this nation is…

Some stupid Republicans forget that we are not alone in this world. They forget that there is an Atlantic Ocean, and a Pacific Ocean and that other nations exist across those bodies of water… They forget that if there is a limited supply of items to be made, they will be made by whomever can make them the cheapest.

The United States spent 16 percent of its GDP in 2008 on healthcare, higher than any other developed nation. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that number will rise to 25 percent by 2025 without changes to federal law (PDF).

So let’s see Mr. Economic Republican, if America’s health care cost is 25% of its GDP, and Japan’s health care cost is 8%, then assuming all other factors are equal, a car built in the US costing $20,000 in raw materials will have an actual cost of $25,000 and the same care done the Japanese way, will have an actual cost of $21,600… Which one do you think the car dealer will go lower on? Which one do you think you personally would buy? Which one do you think the emerging third world global market will prefer?

Republicans, if they win this one, will doom America into being a second rate power… Look at us! We already are. The only option to get ourselves back into competitiveness with our global economic partners is to shave that $3400 off every $20,000 object we manufacture over here…

And get this… No matter what you want done medically to yourself in Japan, all you need to do is walk in and ask for it… They have the best medical care in the world… Try doing that here? We pay 17% more and get absolutely nothing. Over here, you have to spend days on the phone with insurance companies representatives; who will then ok the operation only if they see they can get control of your house as a collateral payment… should you default on the portion they arbitrarily choose not to cover.

So how can the Japanese walk in and get preventative healthcare with no cost and it costs us our house and home to get nothing?

They don’t have stupid Republicans in office… It is that simple… America’s republicans flat out ruined our nation. They flat out devastated your retirement pension plan. They flat out cost you your job. They flat out created the mess that cost the loss of your home. They flat out raised your utility rates. They flat out jacked up your medical co-pay. They flat out raised your car insurance rates. They flat out raised your property taxes.. They flat out increased your service fees for state, county and local government. They flat out sent your jobs overseas. They flat out tripled your prescription costs. They flat out diminished all that purchase power you used to have when Bill Clinton was president.

Aye, those were good days, weren’t they? And America’s stupid Republicans did all of that….. in the name of cutting Federal taxes…

Remember when we had a surplus… Now Republicans (and it is strictly only Republicans) have given our grandchildren a massive debt they cannot pay. The Democrats fought them every step of the way, but America failed, and did not give us enough to stem the foolishness… It is all the Republicans fault… There is absolutely no other explanation… Republicans ruined America.

And they think America will trust them with Health Care? Are they really that stupid?

Are you really, I mean, R E A L L Y … that stupid?
