What a time to start my blog.
How can Republicans believe these ideas will work? Why do the moderators not ask real questions?
We all know that every Republican believes the free market will work for health insurance. Why has it not worked in the past and what will they do differently to get fair insurance at a fair price for everybody? I believe the insurance industry needs to be regulated. If left to the market insurance companies will insure the 80% of the people who are lower risk and make the price prohibitive for the 20% of people that might cost them some of their profit. So taxpayers will pay the cost for the uninsured. What is the answer, these Republican’s have no answer.
Where are the jobs? All the candidates are blaming Obama for the high unemployment. We have had a Republican House of Representatives since January under John Boehner. Where are the massive bills for jobs from the current Republicans? All I see is obstructionist movements and a major focus on controlling every woman’s body. We have a Republican minority in the US Senate that has so abused the filibuster rule since Obama became President, lead by Mitch McConnell that nothing is being done in the Senate to pass massive jobs bills. Not that they have any ideas other than to eliminate more taxes on companies sitting on trillions of dollars already. It has never trickled down and never will.
Overall I see every Republican focused on eliminating taxes on the people that can most afford to pay taxes. There is no compassion for the 16 million people without jobs at all. They are sure if we eliminate the “entitlements” as they call them and eliminate the minimum wage that someone will surely offer all a job even if it is pushing a broom in 110 degree heat for 25 cents an hour! And if they refuse that job let them rot in the street as it is their own damn fault.
And everyone will be allover Rick Perry about Social Security being a big “ponzi” scheme. But he is no different than the others. Every single one of them is under orders to destroy Social Security so the trillions of dollars that are now there can be added to the stock market so the super rich can manipulate the market to assure many the opportunity to buy high and sell low.
So let it be written.
