Conditions For Health Care Reform

My Flag Flies Everyday

My Flag Flies Everyday

 Earlier in the month of August, Nancy Pelosi was ranting about the health care protests as manufactured “Astro Turf” stunts.  I kinda  think she meant they were artificial like Astro Turf.  Whatever, she meant it to be derogatory, as Nancy does not show love for protesters who are rejecting her ideas.  After she made her comment, Robert Gibbs, Presidential Press Secretary, referred to the protesters as the Brooks Brothers Brigade. I had no clue as to what this meant. I filed it for later.

Yesterday, I received some advertising from my credit card company.  Part of it was a brochure dedicated to Brooks Brothers. Evidently, they make men’s suits. They have been in business since 1818, and have a very impressive list of customers. One of the articles featured in this magazine is titled  “Dressing the Presidents.” Guess who their current poster boy is? You guessed it, none other than himself  “The One.” Now I’m really confused. Is he protesting health care reform too?

The Speaker of the House called me a Nazi, and the presidential press secretary said I belonged to the Brooks Brothers Brigade.  Judging by the quality of the 50 page ad that I received that is dedicated to Brooks Brothers products, I would guess they sell expensive items. There are no prices shown on anything, only very detailed descriptions about the quality of the materials and the workmanship that go into making their suits, shirts, ties, etc.  You know the old adage, if you have to ask, you can’t afford it. Well I have to ask, and I surely cannot afford anything in this catalog. In fact, I’ll go out on a limb and say that no one who protested with me spent as much on their entire wardrobe as a single Brooks Brothers suit costs. Get the picture about why I am confused?

I’ve attended a few protest meetings since April 15, 2009. I didn’t see anyone dressed in a suit, much less a Brooks Brothers Suit. Most of us wore denim jeans and message tee shirts. I think the elitist Nancy Pelosi, Robert Gibbs, and Barack Obama, who all seem to know about Brooks Brothers, are the ones who are way out of touch with reality. Like I said many times before, “they just don’t get it, or maybe they don’t want to.” 

Here are some conditions I have for accepting the health care reform  bill:

1. Nancy Pelosi, Robert Gibbs, and Barack Obama and families all fall into the high salary group who POTUS says will be taxed to pay the bill. I want them to pay 100 percent of their income for life into the plan.  Let them live on their socialist programs.

2. All elected government officials and bureaucrats must be cited and named in the bill as recipients of the same service they want us to have.

3.  Remove all the functions and references to “The National Health Care Board ” from the bill. We know this more by the endearing term “Death Panel.”

4. Remove all the functions and references to ” The Federal Coordinating Council For Comparative Effectiveness Research,”  from the bill. (This one slows progress in the field of pharmacology and medicine so as to reduce costs.)

5. Add the words “This Bill Does Not Cover Abortion,” either early or late term.

6. Add the definition, “Life Begins at the Moment of Conception.”

7. Add the definition: “Abortion is not a medical procedure, but an act of murder.”

8. Add the following: Neither the Constitution nor The Bill of Rights Guarantees the Right To Government Health Care.”

9. Add this: “In the event the cost of the services defined by this bill exceed original  estimates by twenty-five percent, the bill becomes null and void.

10. Add this: ” This bill is the product of a joint effort by all representatives of the people of the United States of America, and they are in complete agreement with its content.”
