The New Health Care Unreality Reality

© Tom Tomorrow

The debate around ObamaCare it getting stranger and stranger. Yesterday, a Republican running for Congress in New York declared that he is against health care reform because Americans “don’t die from prostate cancer, breast cancer” anymore. Over 28,000 men will die from prostate cancer this year alone, and 40,000 women will die from breast cancer.

One of the problems is that since health care reform was passed in March 2010, around $235 million has been spent on ads attacking it, funded by people like Karl Rove. And that doesn’t include all the attacks (like the one in the previous paragraph) that aren’t in ads, or from conservative media outlets like Fox News.

    As I have said, we have left the Twilight Zone and entered the conservative version of Wonderland. Maybe the only thing we need to make politics works require they all use actual facts and valid logic to state their positions.

    If Obama cured cancer, the Republicans would attack him for throwing doctors out of work.

    They tipped their hand long ago. They have only one agenda: no second term for the colored guy. Even if the country burns.
