The Home of All Things Interesting

Call for a Blood Oath

to stop Health Care Reform

 

 

 

In a fiery speech that had her conservative Colorado audience cheering, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann railed against the dangers of health care reform and other Democratic initiatives, warning the proposals “have the strength to destroy this country forever.”

“This cannot pass,” the Minnesota Republican told a crowd at a Denver gathering sponsored by the Independence Institute. “What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing. This will not pass. We will do whatever it takes to make sure this doesn’t pass…”

In a speech filled with urgent and violent rhetoric, Bachmann — who proudly acknowledges she is the country’s “second-most hated Republican woman,” behind only former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin – drew a clear line on health care reform…

“Right now, we are looking at reaching down the throat and ripping the guts out of freedom,” she said. “And we may never be able to restore it if we don’t man up and take this one on…”

 

Remember people, This is "Health Insurance", not "Health Care" you are told to fight over.  Health Insurance is where an insurance company worker makes money, by taking money from a customer and not paying anything back to the customer or by paying as little as possible.  It is terrible to see people fight for the right for a private company to make large profits by making people sick and killing their own customers.  It is a strange concept to rally behind. I embrace that fact that government wants to pay for my health insurance, finally I get something I want from the government rather than corporate America.
