Why do Republicans let sick Americans die just to avoid a legislative victory for President Obama?

The Republican Party claims to represent religious America. But when it comes to healthcare – the two couldn’t be farther apart. As the Supreme Court gets ready to hear arguments on Obamacare – a broad coalition of religious groups in America filed a friend-of-the-court brief with the high court in support of Obamacare.

From Methodists to Presbyterians to Catholics – several different denominations are represented in the brief – putting them at odds with nearly every single Republican in Congress and on the campaign trail who have vowed to repeal the President’ health reform law. Considering that the bible calls for the weak and needy to be rescued – and the Pope recently declared healthcare was a “inalienable right” – it’s no surprise that religious organizations are lining up in favor of Obamacare.
What is surprising - and tragic - is that Republicans would rather let sick Americans die than give President Obama a legislative victory.

I'm not ready to discuss privacy in public. If you see me living in a basement, possibly eating rats, I don't give a darn.

Serious politics must have a propaganda machine that isn't just blah-blahing. Whenever you do, you just kill your time. I want to feed my propaganda machine with stuff that makes sense. I obviously beat you and now you change to destructive.

Interesting to learn, you ARE a divided personality. You listen to liberal media because right wing stuff doesn't make sense. But you fight for right-wing goals because of your personal situation. You're not really convinced, you just argue selfishly. Very interesting to analyze that!

You come from my Twitter machine? Just scroll up 3 inches to the other comment. :o)

Liberals, we have to get our campaign more effective. We can actually convince by staying on point. Don't let yourselves distract by righties with their destructive flatness. Use linguistic aikido and let them run against the wall. They're clumsy dinosaurs. ;o)

I never suggested you eat rats.
I suggested metaphorically that you are confined, limited in your views and dark in an ideology that is deceptively subversive.

You admit you use propaganda liberally.
Liberal quote “The ends justify the means”
Propaganda is a distortion of truth, thus you lie to justify your ends. “Enough said”

I never said right wing stuff does not make sense thus I alternately listen to liberal dogma instead. Your lying AGAIN.
I said conservative news and blogs are predictable to me because I agree with them on most points. Therefore to challenge my curiosity and to continue to grow objectively, I engage countering points of view. That is how some of us learn.
Unlike you sitting in your basement of one-side propaganda thinking the occupy troops on the front line understand all your flowery rhetoric fired from your twitter squirt gun.

Linguistic aikido, HA! The liberal agenda is collapsing all around you. You’ve got nothing, not even a clue!

“Truth will always prevail over deception”.

"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
