Now we have this Rep. Virginia Foxx (wonder if Redd was a distant relative?) from North Carolina, and her idiocies. It does not take a helluva lot to get the elderly upset in this country. But these asshats are trying to convince this group, that "they are on their side" and looking out for their best interests. DUH?!?
I would like to know, on what piece of legislation are they referring - when scaring these people? The August recess is here - no work has been completed, if anything - very broad general outlines may have been drafted, but there is NO bill as of this date. There has been NO fine tuning of any proposals. The preemptive strike by the conservative cliques is based in FEAR!!
We need to take Soylent Green and Logan's Run off the video watch list for these idiots.
I have heard the rumblings from some older people, echoing this "scare" philosophy. As usual, I have to add some corrections. Most older Americans that I know, have their medical directives and living wills in place. I am always suggesting this to younger married folks with children. These two documents are really NOT just for the elderly - they are for every one.
So, just FYI - NO elderly people will be thrown in furnaces, or vaporized in order for Health Care Reform to go forward. Get a grip, grow a brain and learn to rationalize and think things through. Never take anything at face value - ask questions. Also, if the answer you get is not what you want to hear - ask others, those who actually may KNOW what they are talking about.
As soon as some of the oblivious realize that they are fodder for the scare brigade - and act and reason independently - no more FEAR tactics will be tolerated.
