Sometimes it boggles my mind just how stupid some people can be and still be able to write complete sentences and breathe–and apparently at the same time. Case in point:
Free marketers don’t care much for bank bailouts so long as they’ve gotten their money out the bank before it fails.
But when it’s health care? I think you will find that teabaggers everywhere will have a very different perspective when they find themselves out there alone with no way to pay for their family’s medical costs.
Who will need the save the day when this happens? The government will – and that means a single-payer system.
Whether the result fits your ideology or not, the numbers would seem to make clear that it is only a matter of time before private health insurance prices itself out of the market, leaving only the government with the capability to insure the nation’s health.
“Leaving only the government with the capability”? And just where does he think the government will get the money that private health insurance companies and individuals couldn’t?
When I used to play chess a lot (high school and college) it was very rare that someone couldn’t see pretty clearly two and usually three moves in advance. And the better players would have a pretty fair view out six or seven moves on some critical branches. But this guy apparently can’t see even one move in advance. What would you call someone like this? In my chess playing days we would call those people losers.
Update: He makes an “interesting” comment in response to another commenter to his article:
I rarely watch CNBC and, anyone who reads this post knows I wouldn’t be caught dead watching Fox.
He admits he studiously ignores data considered to be fair and accurate by millions of people? This isn’t someone concerned with knowing the truth. This is someone who has a deep and profound commitment to some sort of cult.
