Is it really a “right” to have crappy health care?

I suppose technically it is.

It seems that “Medicare for all” is all the rage among democrats.

If you listen to the democrat presidential candidates, you would think that people without health care was a national crisis.

Have you ever seen anyone turned away from an emergency room, insurance or not?

In addition to that…, the truth is:

90% of Americans are covered by some sort of health care plan (Private plans, private plans through employers, VA, Medicare…, even Obamacare!

5% choose not to be covered by a health care plan.

That leaves only 5% that are truly without health care coverage.

Most of the democrat presidential candidates rally around the cry that, “Health care is a human right!”

The truth is the democrats are “fake news.”

The truth is the democrats don’t care about anyone’s rights.

The truth is the democrats really don’t care if you have health care coverage or not.

The truth is the democrats want government to take over the health care system because the truth is they want the government to take over everything!

So…, let’s get this straight.

In order to make sure that the 5% who don’t have coverage get coverage:

… the democrats want to destroy the current system that 90% of us are using?

…the democrats want the 2.7 million people who currently work in the insurance industry to lose their jobs?

…the democrats expect all of us, who do pay taxes, to pay considerably more taxes to fund their socialized and nationalized health care fiasco?

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know is soooo efficient and customer oriented?

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know is soooo cost effective?  We’ve all heard about the bargains the Pentagon has gotten on their $435 hammers and their $640 toilet seats!  Get ready for the $50 Q-tip!

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know are doing such a good job in regards to immigration laws, in regards to handling the abortion issue, in regards to funding social security, in regards to homelessness, in regards to city, state and federal debt, in regards to crime and violence, in regards to illegal drugs and drug abuse.  Well…, you get the idea.

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know will be abused and wasteful.  Can you imagine the current Medicare system abuse times ten?!

Times 20?!!

Times 30?!!!

President Trump believes, and I believe, that a more intelligent, “holistic” plan for improving the health care system would include adding a “safety net” system for the 5% without health care, laws making insurance processing easier, more transparent, and more user friendly, programs aimed at making medications more affordable, laws to address excessive medical liability awards, covering pre-existing conditions, and finding ways to make health insurance coverage more competitive…, as opposed to just lazily dumping the whole thing onto the government’s lap and living with whatever they deem is acceptable for us.

According to Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN, “Medicare, which has been around since 1965, is the government-run health insurance program that covers all Americans 65 and older and is funded by taxpayers. A portion taken out of our paychecks for Social Security goes toward Medicare to cover most services like hospital stays and doctors’ visits.”

What did people do prior to 1965?  The American people didn’t pay any federal income taxes prior to 1913 either.  How did we and the country survive?  Seriously…, I’m asking?

“People on Medicare can also choose to get additional coverage from Medicare-approved private insurers to cover other services such as dental, vision and prescription drugs.”

“Our health care system could best be described as a hybrid. About half the money comes from the private sector: people who have private insurance through their employers or who are self-insured. The other half is from the public sector: federal, state and local governments paying into Medicare and Medicaid.”

Most proposed “Medicare for all” plans would provide fairly comprehensive coverage, as Medicare does now, all with no copays, premiums or deductibles, they say.

Herein lies the rub.

The democrats call it “free” health care with “no copays, premiums or deductibles,” but we all know nothing is “free.”

These politicians are so generous with OUR money!

I’m sure the increase in our taxes would more than equal our copays, premiums and deductibles, as we would not only be covering our own costs, but all of those who don’t pay any taxes as well.

As with most other democrat schemes, it’s a good deal for those accustomed to living off of government handouts, and that’s about it.

Of course, the extremely wealthy and most politicians would be exempt from this system, designed for the rest of us peons, just as in the case of Obamacare.

Why are about half of the American people willing to accept a crappy health care system, while the elites just go on living their elite lifestyles?

Because about half of us are either too ignorant to know any better, gullible enough to believe the socialist fairy tales they tell us, too lazy to care either way, or we’re originally from a country where we’re used to this type of treatment, so this is totally acceptable and familiar, and we’re just happy to be here.

It’s difficult combating the waves of liberal misinformation when the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” acts as a co-conspirator rather than a “watch dog” for the American people.

Remember…, stay thirsty my friends, but don’t drink the liberal Kool-Aide!

Let’s not forget how the FBI and the DOJ participated in promoting this historic hoax against our president called “Russian collusion.”

Now that Robert Mueller’s investigation has concluded, and its determination was that there was no Trump-Russia collusion, there have been calls to examine the probe’s origins at the FBI.

President Trump has called for Congress and/or our new Attorney General to “look into” those who had created a “false narrative” sparking the fairy tale investigation.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has already committed to look into the FBI’s actions here.

Another Inspector General’s (IG) report about much of this is expected to come out within the next three months as well.  Perhaps this report will bring some of these actions and behaviors out into the light and into question.

We’ll see.

Let’s not forget that the FBI is an agency within the Department of Justice (DOJ), and that the FBI Director reports to the Attorney General of the United States.  So while all of this was occurring, we had James Comey reporting to Loretta Lynch, both of whom were appointed to their positions by Barack Obama.

The slogan of the FBI, which appears on its symbolic badge is “Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity.” This slogan, which originated 1935 by FBI Inspector W.H. Drane Lester, describes the high moral standards the FBI expects from its staff.

These expectations apparently do not extend to their upper management level personnel!

Let’s take a walk down memory lane and recall some of these text message gems that some of these non-political protectors of the republic felt compelled to send.

On Aug. 8, 2016, FBI lawyer Lisa Page texted her adulterous lover, Peter Strzok, who was in charge of the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton and later worked on the Russia probe: “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”

Strzok responded on his FBI-issued work phone: “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.”

obama strzok page texts

This text was discovered by the inspector general at the U.S. Department of Justice, after the FBI amazingly failed to uncover the message on its own.  That’s odd.

We all learned they have a hard time recovering emails, but I guess that applies to certain text messages as well!

This is what a previous report by the Inspector General had to say about Strzok’s text, “It is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.”

The inspector general’s office also asked Strzok for his response.

“When asked about this text message, Strzok stated that he did not specifically recall sending it, but that he believed that it was intended to reassure Page that Trump would not be elected, not to suggest that he would do something to impact the investigation,” the report notes.

Strzok later told the House Judiciary Committee that he meant Americans in general would stop Trump in 2016.

strzok media leak strategy

You have to ask the question, “What were these people at the FBI and the DOJ so worried about regarding Donald Trump possibly being elected?

I mean…, fine…, you want Hillary Clinton to win, but is it the end of the world if she doesn’t?

These people apparently think so, since they were willing to go as far as to undo a legitimate presidential election.

As time goes on, I think we’re beginning to see what they were all afraid of.  They were all afraid that we would get a glimpse into their “deep state” operations and that their gig would be up.  And it is.

In an Aug. 15, 2016 text message, Strzok told Page: “I want to believe … that there’s no way Trump gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.  It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

According to Maxim Lott for Fox News, “Critics say the text implies Strzok wanted the investigation to hurt Trump in case he were to win.”

Strzok also told the IG and the House Judiciary Committee that his text meant “an investigation should happen right away.”

“My use of the phrase ‘insurance policy’ was simply to say, while the polls or people might think it is less likely that then-candidate Trump would be elected, that should not influence … us doing our job responsibly,” Strzok told the House Judiciary Committee.

Oh, okay, that makes sense to me now.

Have I told you how happy I am you got fired Mr. Strzok?

Well, I am.

“Despite having called the Russia situation an ‘insurance policy’ and having pressed for more vigorous investigation, a text from May 17, 2017 shows Strzok had doubts.”

“In texts to Page, Strzok questioned whether he should join Mueller’s team investigating Trump and Russia because: “you and I both know the odds [of us finding anything] are nothing.  If I thought it [an investigation] was likely [to turn up anything] I’d be there no question.”

“Strzok did ultimately joined the team investigating Trump, before being removed and then fired, after the IG report revealed his texts.’

In February 2016, while Hillary Clinton was under investigation for improper handling of classified information, the Department of Justice wanted to send four attorneys to question Clinton.

But FBI attorney Page urged both Strzok and then FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to only allow two DOJ people to be sent.

“Our best reason to hold the line at 2 is she might be our next president,” Page explained to McCabe via text. “The last thing we need is us going in there loaded for bear, when it is not operationally necessary… This is as much about reputational protection as anything.”

Hmmm, they didn’t seem to have any of these concerns when dealing with Donald Trump.  Just sayin’.

The Inspector General report also found an exchange between FBI employees on their work phones from Nov. 9, just after the election.

“I can’t stop crying,” one unidentified FBI employee said.

“That makes me even more sad… I can’t stop stressing about what I could have done differently,” an unidentified FBI attorney replied.

The same FBI employee who discussed crying after the election also used an FBI-issued device to direct class-based disdain toward Trump supporters: “Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing.”

Peter Strzok used similar language, saying in one text: “Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support….”

Ha!

Well we can smell you and your partners in crime too, Strzok, and you smell rotten…, rotten to the core.
