I guess I don't understand politics. Why are all these Republicans obsessed about replacing Obamacare? What do they care? As government parasites, they have an excellent health plan. So it's no money out of their greedy pockets. Do they just not want poor or middle-class people to have a health plan? Or is it what so many people already think: racism, a hatred of that uppity Obama who has the gall to be thinner, smarter, more educated, more refined, and more centered that any of them are? I can't see any reason for these ne'er-do-wells to be so neurotic about replacing health care. Don't they have other things to do? And when the constituents at their town halls (assuming these cowardly congressmen show up) express a desire to keep their health care, why isn't that reason enough to do so? It isn't like these morons know more than the voters and have sound reasons to leave them medically stranded. So what's the problem? Lots of people are benefiting from Obamacare. If rates are going up, it's probably because we still have a pay-to-survive health system that pours millions into the coffers of pharmaceutical companies. Maybe that's the problem, some high-paid executive at a drug company who is whispering in the ear of his corrupt and compliant congressman, "I want more. See what you can do."
I am a retired copywriter. For 40 years I wrote for major agencies and developed some campaigns you would know. Like most writers, I love to give my opinion, and since I am so familiar with advertising this is the area I chose to comment on.
Actually I'm not that cranky. I am as fond
of as many things as I detest. But since most people only hear what one doesn't like, I might as well go with cranky.For my other blog idleideasfactory I am putting out there things I have written and ideas for books, screenplays, stage plays, and even products that I will not have time in life to follow through on. If
anyone can profit from them, be my guest.
