Can't Afford Health Insurance? You must be White Trash

The cluelessness, detachment and insensitivity of some folks is simply astounding.

Congressman David Dreier (R-Ca)

On Monday evening, July 9, 2012, Congressman David Dreier, a Republican from California, during a debate on the GOP's bill to eliminate the Affordable Care Act, said that insurance companies should be allowed to discriminate against people with brain tumors and not be required to cover them. You just have to love the way the Republicans so faithfully defend the interests of their constituents - the corporations who have bought and fully paid for their services.

Strategic Health Care

From the "Let them eat cake" file: Strategic Health Care, a lobbying firm that bills itself as "widely respected for our expertise," is throwing a party for congressional staffers next week. They want to get together and - I guess, from the way the invitation reads - trade stories about the poor white trash who can't afford the health care services and meds they peddle.

Goes right along with the powers that be not wanting to provide "Smoke Eaters" with health and hospitalization because fighting wild fires is considered seasonal or part-time work. I, for one, signed the petition to get them and their family's health care.

Excellent point Steve. The fact is the USA is the naked face of capitalism. However the alternative of communism is worse.

Communism is not the only alternative to capitalism, thankfully.

Having deleted a comment which is not in alignment with your opinion, you are left with your usual followers voicing their predictable admiration.

No - I delete your comments because they are grossly inaccurate. You said that I wrote that David Dreier called people white trash, when I said nothing of the kind. You said I called people white trash, when I said nothing of the kind. All anyone has todo is read the article to see how completely off-base and inaccurate you were with your comments. I deleted your comments to save you the embarrassment of scores of people seeing how mistaken you were . By the way, Congressman Dreier is gay, and you have written that you have no time for homosexuals, so why are you defending him? Isn't he an unChristain sinner in your book?

There is no need to defend yourself to me, Steve. I understand.

If you had a single viable brain cell in your cranium, you would realize just how stupid you sound, twit girl.

By the way, I don't really give two hoots and a holler whether you have anything to say to me or not. I understand. It takes an intelligent person to hold a conversation with me.

I didn't think that you would be. It takes an emotionally secure person to be able to laugh at themselves. You flaunt your insecurity like Linus flaunts his security blanket.

One cannot help recalling - if they don't have bread let them eat cake! We should go for inclusive society. Thanks for the share, Steve - siva

The general public should be afforded the same health benefits as public servants.
