Cairo speech, actions at odds

Barack Obama went to Cairo and gave a phony baloney speech, then put in place programs totally to the contrary (just as he does in this country). People there were upset. I pointed out this duplicity in my letter(s), which began a bizarre obsession with a premise that I opposed Obama’s cutting funds to Egypt. Even though I oppose most everything Obama does, that was not in my letter(s). I don’t see what’s so difficult to decipher.

If you want to understand my term “terrorist buddies” of Obama, all you have to do is look at each of the world’s conflicts and see which side Obama supports. This isn’t rocket science. The plan to eliminate bin Laden was in place before Obama became president. When he needed a boost in the polls, they woke him up in the middle of the night, so he could watch it on TV.

Penny Fattig and Glenn Bartels believe the two parties should work together for the good of the country. I don’t know how many people consider themselves Democrats in this country. In congress, Democrats are virtually non-existent. I believe that Republicans should be fighting tooth and nail to prevent further usurpation of our freedoms by progressives/socialists.

Example: both parties just worked together on (debt reduction) legislation that increases our debt by 7-10 trillion dollars. Afterwards, Obama was crowing about all the spending he has planned. Standard & Poor’s downgraded our credit rating.

Penny wrote “Obviously, gridlock is not a good thing.” Gridlock is what keeps mental patients like Rep. Mike Doyle (D) in check. Here’s his statement about tea partiers. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.” LOL

It is no surprise that AARP Nebraska president, Robert Eppler (08-03 letter), is bad-mouthing private Medicare Advantage plans. They are AARP’s biggest competitor. He forgot to mention that they spent over $43 million lobbying the passage of Obamacare. It cuts the “bloated subsidies” away from seniors to fund what talk show host Andrew Wilkow termed, Obama’s “zero liability voters.”

AARP comes to the rescue with lower quality care and rising costs by government fiat. Obamacare throws seniors under the bus and AARP is driving the bus. Surprise! Surprise! Crony capitalism allowed AARP to join over 1,400 businesses in getting a waiver from Obamacare!

Obamacare is already cutting the reimbursement of physicians who see Medicare patients, causing a reduction in the numbers they will take and even causing some to leave their practice. As someone who opposes entitlements in the first place, I think it’s stupid to employ government run healthcare which drives the best and brightest out of business. The competition of free market capitalism ensures the best care at the lowest price.

Which would you rather be paying for, a personal quality doctor or the slop at AARP’s hog trough?

What if Ben Nelson would have voted against the health bill? Perhaps we would be talking about real healthcare reform.
