Republican Health Care Plan

Posted by AB on July 21, 2009

With all of the calls of “socialism,”  “rationing,” “government-run healthcare,” and even warnings of death, I have been patiently waiting for the Republican health care plan.  Well, I must wait no longer.  It has been revealed in a memo from the Republican National Committee (RNC), and Huffington Post’s Sam Stein has obtained a copy.

What is the plan, you ask?  The plan is to scare Americans with words like “risk” and “experiment,” in order to delay, and eventually kill any reform coming from President Obama and Democrats in Congress.  The media is inundated, daily, by idea-less Republicans and cowardly Democrats, saying that the President should “slow down” on health care.  This is understandable, but gutless, nonetheless. 

The Democrats who are dragging their feet are mostly moderates or conservatives with representative constituencies.  They fear being perceived as being too liberal.  Most Republicans care more about politically injuring the President, not what is good for the country.  They know that if health care passes, they will be on the wrong side of history, again, and they will get absolutely no credit.  The President has given Republicans the opportunity to take part, but trying to score political points, they have missed out on collaboration.  Now, they have only one play, and that is to obstruct. 

Fortunately, all of that it is too late; health care will pass.  It will not be pretty–there is far too much at stake–but the will of the American people will be felt, and President Obama is the right person to get done something that is far-overdue.
