Quote of the Day
"I really believe ObamaCare is the most important issue in this election," Santorum said during an interview on "Fox and Friends" Tuesday morning. "It is the turning point for our country. We better have a candidate who is out there and very, very strong in opposition to government-run healthcare and focuses on healthcare that centers on you, not on the government."
Rick (in)Santorum sticking it to Mitt Romney on the 5 year anniversary of “RomneyCare.”
With the most Zany Wingers,
Nationalized Romneycare is a prefect example. It is truly frightening to wingers, today, not because center right health insurance reform is a threat to FREEDOM, but because a Democratic President accomplished this reform. When Willard Milton Romney implemented RomneyCare, many wingers praised it at the time. And why not, Romneycare was originally cooked up in right wing think tanks in the early 1990s. But today it is scary, because the news inside the bubble demands it to be so.
If the financial collapse that hit in the fall of 2008 had held off a couple of months until just after election day in November, and John McCain had managed to squeak by and win the Presidential election, wingers would be signing a different tune today. One can imagine Health and Human Services Secretary Romney implementing nationalized RomneyCare as part of President McCain’s health reform. Wingers like Santorum, my guess is, would be cheering this reform and not castigating it as government run healthcare.
But that’s what the bubble does to them. It’ll get you and make you believe that doom is just around the corner. Poor fella’. It must be a tough way to live your life - living inside an information bubble. If only President Obama had put more stimulus money in education, maybe a new government run education program could have helped folks like Santorum escape the bubble. I guess we'll never know what could have been.
