Subject: Repeal health care? Give up your own first!

Dear Friend,

For 2 years, GOP leaders in Congress fought tooth and nail to oppose health care reform. They did their best to keep tens of millions without coverage, decrying any effort to help citizens as "socialist," "fascist" or some other equally baffling "ist." And incredibly, they are now talking about repealing it.

Well, four brave members of Congress are calling GOP leaders on their hypocrisy, demanding they practice what they preach, and calling on them to give up their government-sponsored health care. And we couldn't agree more:

Write Congressman Boehner and Senator McConnell today. Tell them if they want to repeal health care, they need to practice what they preach, and give up their own government-sponsored health care first.

Please sign this petition. I did with this comment:

It is amazing how the conservatives manipulate their words and try to make us all believe their only interests is for the Common Good and America. When we all know in reality the truth is that they could care less about America and WE THE PEOPLE. Their interests are purely corporate, in other words what's good for the corporations is good for them. So the likelihood of such conservatives like McConnell, Boehner, et al who vow to make health care strictly a corporate commodity, voluntarily giving up their own government sponsored health care… Yeah right, WHEN HELL FREEZES OVER AND PIGS FLY! Their hypocrisy is so thick it's a wonder that anything else can fit into their small unthinking brains. thinkingblue

Gov't sponsored Health Care comes in SO many forms it's hard to begin. My 72 yo widowed Mother married an ultra-conservative Libertarian, Tea Partyer. (I am personnaly a life long Republican, but since my mid-40's have mellowed tremendously. After reading Thom's book "Screwed" last year made me really re-think my Libertarianism.) Anyway, my step-father worked, as I do, for the Dept. of Defense for most of his career. He was in the USAF for about 6 years in the late 50's and early 60's. This guy had Gov't healthcare his entire life through the military, the DoD and now the VA and Medicare but he doesn't "get it". He feels he EARNED his healthcare and sees nothing wrong with HIS Gov't healthcare. My Mother was a State Civil servant and has lifelong healthcare through the State of California. I've had 30+ years of healthcare through my employer, the DoD. He doesn't see that all three of us have earned our lifelong incomes and healthcare coverage via the Government. Like many Tea Partyers his logic is absolutley illogic. He's a nice guy and represents a lot of hardworking men and women who are disgusted with the government but are highly illogical in the way they vent. It's time for ALL Americans to have healthcare. -Peace-
