You Know He Winks Like A Glow Worm, Dance Like A Spinnin’ Top

Yesterday Phil Hare continued his “Lies My Congressman Told Me About Health Care Reform” Tour at The Dispatch.

This time his banal lies appeared on page A10, rather than A1, since the Crisis Of The Kitty took precedence.

Hare continues to lie about how this $1.2T fiasco will be financed with no deficit spending. Aside from the false claim that all this can be paid for by elimination of waste and fraud in the current system, which no one believes, he now says that additional money will be gained by taxing the incomes of all individuals over $1M. Hare says there are 290 such fat-cats in the 17th. He doesn’t bother to mention the other 13 NEW taxes on individuals, small businesses, corporations and everything and everyone who breathes, or doesn’t.

I don’t know if he was asked about his vote against the Stupak amendment, or if he did some preemptive spinning, but this this is how Brandy Donaldson interpreted his spin:

“[Hare] doesn’t want to take away a woman’s right to seek an abortion at her own expense or the expense of her private insurer…”

Huh? I don’t know if Hare hadn’t fully absorbed the talking points his second wife, SanFranNan laid out for him, or if Donaldson just did a poor job of reporting it—without a transcript, it’s impossible to know.

As usual, the juicy bit is left to the last:

“…this is not a government takeover of the health care system. It is the government giving people the chance to stop going into foreclosure and bankruptcy because they don’t have insurance.”

What Hare didn’t bother to mention is that those who pass up the “chance” to buy government mandated health insurance will be sent to jail.

SanFranNan guaran-damn-tees it.

  1. ๐Ÿ˜† we both dumped on the Dispatch/Argus for the same story on the same day and same time. ๐Ÿ˜†

    The local papers have become “Madmen”. They now sell political advertising instead of investigative journalism. I guess they making their play to get some of that Obama Stimulus Money.

  2. Great minds think alike, eh S? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Here’s the link to Scoundrel’s post.

    But even worse, or maybe even more hilarious, than the account in the D/A, is what appeared in The QCTimes.

    Without comment or question, Kurt Allemeier let Hare get his partisan hackery out in the open with this direct quote:

    “I watched the other side scream at [Bruce Braley], “Trial lawyer”. . . That is not the way to behave in the chamber. This is what troubles me most: It has really become the party of “no” and the party of fear. I said to one Republican on the way out that I guess you found someone you dislike more than illegal immigrants and that is trial lawyers.”

    Oh yeah, the Democrats certainly wouldn’t be the “party of fear” shrieking about how people are dying without health care reform—even though the “reform” doesn’t kick in until after the 2012 election.

    The Republican is conveniently unnamed so it’s impossible to know if what Hare said is true, but Allemeier was more than happy to print Hare’s smears and cheap shots.

    What’s the point of having two newspapers in town if the choice is between bad and worse?

    What Hare didn’t say was that for some bizarre reason the Democrats chose trial lawyer Braley to rebut the GOP amendment to—wait for it—reform medical liability tort reform!

    What a hoot—you really can’t make this stuff up!

    A trial lawyer is called on to defend a trial lawyers’ right to get their John Edwards McMansion! No conflict of interest for Braley there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This was a “letter to the editor” in August 29th, Jackson , MS newspaper.

    I am a seventh generation Mississippian and wanted to come back here after going somewhere else for college and medical school. My extracurricular interests are golf, hunting, fishing and college football.

    Dear Sirs:

    “During my last night’s shift in the ER, I had the pleasure of evaluating a patient with a shiny new gold tooth, multiple elaborate tattoos, a very expensive brand of tennis shoes and a new cellular telephone equipped with her favorite R&B tune for a ringtone.

    Glancing over the chart, one could not help noticing her payer status: Medicaid.

    She smokes more than one costly pack of cigarettes every day and, somehow, still has money to buy beer.

    And our Congress expects me to pay for this woman’s health care.

    Our nation’s health care crisis is not a shortage of quality hospitals, doctors or nurses. It is a crisis of culture โ€” a culture in which it is perfectly acceptable to spend money on vices while refusing to take care of one’s self or, heaven forbid, purchase health insurance. A culture that thinks “I can do whatever I want to because someone else will always take care of me”.

    Life is really not that hard. Most of us reap what we sow. Don’t you agree?

  4. I did not read the Times article before I wrote my post. Still, What For? I knew how it would read before I clicked on your link. The Times has long past given up any allusion or pretense it is anything other than a mirror for progressive ideology. I still visit their Quadsville section but for the most part I do little posting on it as the site has morphed into the QC version of the Democratic Underground hate fest on Christians and Conservative. Many of the progressive posts on that site shine their bigotry and hatred. Perhaps one the attacked members should file a hate crime lawsuit against the Times.

    You know I am all for health care reform – just not this version that makes the Government into a 1984 version of God, Country and Corporation. Also if the government is doing their job –governing– why should this piece of legislation cost the government and taxpayers one damn dime!! The governmentโ€™s job is to legislate and govern not incorporate and financially compete. Their job is one of simplicity in its basic objectives- create laws and play watchdog over those internal and external entities that seek to disrupt and/or destroy this country and its citizens. This health care legislature in a corporate contract designed to create a government owned and operated corporation that will employ their friends and relatives. It is just another work of government inspired nepotism!

  5. good point spud … the “welfare class” that gets free health care and other taxpayer subsidies, often has gray or black market income far in excess of the average hourly wage schmuck, with none of those silly tax burdens. And from lawn care to nanny care for congressmen, the illegal immigrant must be subsidized by Joe Honest.

    The ACORN secret videos demonstrated the Obama regime operates within that underworld. They also have the union/mafia gang, and huge banker/lawyer players … but I’m sure those guys pay all their taxes (except for all those Obama appointee/tax cheats like Geithner).

    The true blue American MUST go to war against the scammers and their lawyer and politician thugs … hopefully it will be fought in 2010 at the voting booth, and not something far more scary …

    But Hare will brag about contrived saved jobs numbers, as they use “spendulus” to window dress before the next election … won’t we feel good about a new (union) highway, as unemployment goes to 12%, debt soars, and the dollar falters?

  6. T, I’m likin’ your Greenie Quincy guy—he certainly has some original ideas on how to fix things. ๐Ÿ™‚

    When he comes to the QCs I’m going to make a point to get out to see him—should be a hoot!
