The G.O. P. on the Wrong side of history, again!

I wish I could understand the Republican Party some day, but the more I try, the more I fail. For instance, they all condemned the health care bill for being "socialized medicine," and yet they ALL enjoy health insurance paid for by the American people.

I waited patiently for at least one of those devoted patriots, defenders of the "will of the people" to step up to the "cause," and give up his or her health insurance, and then go and join the uninsured Americansm but they did not. If they would have done it, then I would accept that they truly do not believe in "socialized health care." But they all failed me. Why? Because they are a bunch of demagogues with a double standard!

Today Senator Boehner, put out a statement saying that "This is a somber day for the American people...," and I can't disagree more. It is obvious that the senator and his political buddies have never interacted with the most vulnerable people of our society. For "those people," and for the rest of us who believe in social justice and equality, today is joyous day.

Mr. Boehner went on to criticize the Health Care Reform bill on the account that "Never before has such a monumental change to our government been carried out without the support of both parties." Is he expecting people to take him seriously? Has he forgotten, already, that the American people were watching the debates, and that they saw President Obama made many desperate attempts to have a bipartisan bill?

The Republican Party chose to seize every opportunity to seek political gains, instead of genuinely trying to compromise on the bill; and, therefore, they have nobody to blame, but themselves for being, as always, on the wrong side of history!

  2. No sé qué proponían los republicanos, por no saber, no sé si proponían algo o si les parecía bueno el sistema sanitario actual. Tampoco sé si simplemente estan en eso de oponerse por oponerse

    El sistema sanitario americano tiene muchísimos puntos mejorables pero el camino adoptado por Obama, creo, empeorará las cosas en el largo plazo.

    Estoy de acuerdo en que quizá los republicanos están en el lado equivocado de la historia. Pero Obama no parece darse cuenta de que la cuenta no la pagará él.

    En todo caso, lo que me molesta es el borreguismo. ¿De verdad (casi) todos los republicanos piensan de la misma manera? ¿De verdad (casi) todos los demócratas piensan igual?

    Un saludo

  3. Hola Gonzalo, el partido Republicano se ha convertido en el albergue de todos los sectores de la extrema derecha que no acepta que los Estados Unidos poco a poco va dejando de ser un país de mayoría caucásica... el más marcha inexorablemente hacia el muticulturalismo y eso es demasiado para algunos... El partido Rep. para tener resonancia y vigencia entre estos sectores se ha ido alejando de sus propios principios políticos. Es muy triste. Los centristas y no tan radicales, ya encuentran que se partido ha desparecido.... Esto no es saludable para la nación :(.

    Cabrit0 la verdad es que la nueva ley no es perfecta, pero también es cierto que los republicanos no hicieron un intento honesto de colaborar y "mejorarlo". Por el contrario, su intención desde el principio fue la desinformación, la propaganda, propagar el miento, y ultimadamente, su intención fue usarlo como propaganda política.

    La otra cuestión es que ahora después que se convirtió en ley es cuando ellos empiezan a ofrecer soluciones, ¿donde diablos estaban ellos cuando se trataba de debatir y buscar soluciones? Se convirtieron en el partido de NO.

    Sé que la nuevo sistema esta lejos de perfecto, pero algo habia que hacer.... Hay millones de personas que llegan a las salas de emergencia en busca de cuidadados medicos, y ¿quien paga esa factura? Los que pagamos impuestos.... Esto ha llevado a muchos hospitales a la quiebra... Entonces, se que la nueva ley costara mucho dinero, pero no es como que ahora no estamos pagando ya, y todos los dias el estatus quo iba saliendo mas caro, y se hacia menos efectivo. ¿Es este sistema la respuesta? Pues veremos, pero prefiero tratar algo y si no funciona se cambia, a la postura de los republicanos de no hacer nada -no hicieron nada al respecto en los ocho años de Bush, aunque ahora parecen saber qué hacer. Yo de veras, no entiendo nada. Estoy harta de tanta demagogia.

  4. Y qué opinas de quienes no quieren participar en eso?

    Ese es mi único inconveniente con la reforma. ¿Es ético obligar a participar a quien no quiere? EL argumento es que si se permite esa libertad, muchas personas se saldrán y el plan se irá a pique, por eso hay que obligar a todo el mundo. Pero, si el plan se cae porque mucha gente no lo quiere ¿NO es más lógico no hacer nada?

    Un saludo.
