American Cartoonists Meet The Republican "Healthcare" Scam Head-On


-by Noah

The CBO (Congressional Budget Office) report is out. 22 Million American citizens will lose their insurance; 15 Million of those in the Republican Party "Rich Get Richer Quicker" scheme’s 1st year of implementation alone but what else should we expect of a Republican Party that makes it easier for a mentally ill person to buy a gun than insurance and get treatment?

For those of us who still have insurance, the premiums and other costs will go up. If you are a republican or the Grim Reaper, what’s not to like? A psychopathic death panel made up of Trump, McConnell, Ryan, and their House and Senate accomplices, have come up with quite a plan. It’s a series of multi-layered rotating blades of death.

Winston Churchill once said of us Americans:
You can always count on Americans to do the right thing-- after they’ve tried everything else.
So, we’ve gone from nothing, to a flawed step in the right direction called Obamacare, to, now, an attempt to go not just back to nothing, but a minus plan, a worse than nothing plan that is really meant to be, as I wrote on Sunday, a plan to give, not healthcare, but a massive Republican handout to republican benefactors, some of which will find its way back to them in the form of bribes called “campaign contributions.”

America’s cartoonists are expressing their patriotism by striking back, so, while we wait for that “right thing” that, as Churchill would say, we haven’t tried yet, ie. a Single Payer plan, similar to what the rest of the world’s major countries have, let’s take a look at some of what the cartoonist have been saying about the situation.

I wonder if the last one (rube Goldberg) was used for $hillbillarycare or obamneycare before?

Why is it that stupid americans insist on building such complicated shit that can never work before even considering the simplest most effective approach? Is it that they just can't bring themselves to paying taxes for anything at all? Or is it the congresswhores who create their own job security by creating shit that keeps needing to be fixed.

Or is it simply that capitalism is evil and seeks to make 99.9% of people paupers (or dead) so that the .1% can have it all.

Or elements of all of the above, of course.

Stupid Americans only ALLOW such things to be built, because Stupid Americans don't want to take the time to understand that by allowing such complicated structures to exist, corruption can again grow as the loopholes are discovered and exploited. Stupid Americans are fervent believers in The Quick Fix. Just look at how many voted for Trump expecting all this greatness to erupt and solve all of America's problems - and all within the first 100 days.

Thank you Noah. The emperors are not merely naked, they've been ex-rayed and MRI'd -- and America will pay the bills for these "procedures" for many years to come.
