Tea Party Freedom

© Matt Davies

Davies titled this comic “Cage Fighter”, I suppose because they are fighting for the right to be screwed over by insurance companies. It is one of life’s little ironies that members of the tea party will likely be helped more than average people by health care reform.

    Why aren’t labor union exemptions, four years good faith, and coverage for illegals around Obama?

    Sorry Sam, this cartoon is based in reality, whereas your talking points are from Bizarro World.

    Now take a breath before you hyperventilate, then go back to stroking off to BecKKK.

    The left is so predictable, whenever faced with an opposing position they can’t answer they revert to invoking the “KKK” ! Of course the fact is that all KKK members were southern democrats and the only high visibility KKK member active now is the Democratic Senator from WV, Robert Byrd, Grand Wizard of the KKK, is just an inconvenient fact, best ignored.

    No, conservatives are not fighting in support of insurance companies. They want health care reform that properly regulates insurance companies in a free market – not a govt take over.

    They do NOT advocate exemptions for pre-existing conditions, patients losing coverage when they get sick, increasing premiums, etc. What kind of nut job would support that crap?

    Govt run health care will have the efficiency of the DMV, the budget of the DoD and the bed side manner of the IRS.

    It concerns me that someone can actually be so off base that they believe conservatives are fighting for insurance companies. Maybe conservatives aren’t the ones who should be reevaluating their views.

    Kevin, we don’t believe the Republicans are fighting for the insurance companies, we believe they are begging for the insurance company campaign contributions.

    And if conservatives really wanted to reform health insurance and make it a true free market system, then when they owned the presidency and congress, why didn’t they do just that, instead of doing Medicare Part D, which was a HUGE giveaway to the drug companies (not to mention a monster hit to the deficit). And why won’t they let negotiate drug prices, or reimportation of cheaper drugs from Canada? Those would be free market initiatives.

    Yeah, what kind of nut job would support our old health care system?
