Republicans Solve Healthcare!

It's been a long time coming and they have taken a lot of heat for not having a plan of their own to answer Obama's Health Reform, but you can count on Republicans to take their time, after all, they had eight years under Jesus George.......and when they do reach a solution, you gotta know it is "Their Plan".......no other party on earth could come up with this one.
Pay medical bills with a chicken, says Republican candidate Sue Lowden | Richard Adams | World news | guardian.co.uk

I was thinking about the other great plans the right has brought to America in recent years....like the fear factor solution after 911 when they advised us to seal our homes "airtight" with plastic and duct tape. I also like that advise to check our woodpiles for those nasty bearded terrorists before bed each night, it worked wonders in scaring old ladies and children. Or maybe that old Ronnie boy plan where you give the rich a giant tax cut and park at the bottom of the pile with a dump truck to load all of your cash that will "Trickle Down". How did that work out for you? My dump truck driver died of old age just last week and the truck was still empty and the bed was rusted out....
Maybe that idea to invade a country that had nothing to do with 911, while abandoning the effort in the country that did......
Feel free to add you own great Republican solutions of the past few decades right here! There is no shortage of chicken brained ideas from the right.......George Bush was perhaps the biggest one of all, but there are plenty more.........just list your favorites!

Best Regards!

I was wondering about Squirrels......I would have a Gold Plan if they take Squirrels! I've got hundreds, and they make more every day!

Some are just slightly OOF, but should cover an Office Visit?

The absurd part is that many on the right, too many, buy into these ridiculous ideas. Like those insane Tea Baggers that rail against Govt, but don't want any of their Medicare or Soc Sec benefits reduced. They want lower taxes, but have the lowest taxes under Obama in forty years. What they don't have is common sense.

Unfortunately they can, and my guess is will in the near future.
Our best defense is to keep the discussions here more absurd than the politics themselves.

This barter system won't work. When we were young, my brother took a quart jar full of june bugs to our dentist. The dentist kept the june bugs, but still expected us to pay.

That's an easy one........split the difference...it was fifty years! I seldom make mistakes, and the Ratlady was only off a little herself, so cut us a little slack!

speaking of Rebulicans

I just loved the old cartoon style..... The rhetoric was good too...
FT.com / Columnists / Clive Crook - In search of a moderate Republican
QuoteQuote:
Even so, to call the Obama administration “socialist” is risible. If anything, “secular” makes even less sense. Do Republicans regard universal health insurance as a godless undertaking? And since when, even in the US, was “secular” an allowable term of abuse?.................the Republicans’ militant posture is working. This dynamic has disturbing implications. A populist-right Republican party is not a party of fiscal conservatives. It is a party of tax-cutters and middle-class entitlement protectors – budget deficits be damned. A populist-right Republican party has no trouble calling for lower taxes, opposing cuts in Medicare (the programme that poses the greatest fiscal danger), and deploring public borrowing, all at the same time. This, in fact, has been its line on healthcare reform.

That reform, with its $1,000bn of extra costs over 10 years, is now law. Democrats may flinch, like Republicans, at cutting Medicare to pay for it, but they have no strong objection to raising taxes once that becomes inescapable. A Republican-controlled House would have strong objections. It might very well refuse to do it, preferring possible fiscal catastrophe to higher taxes.

The Democratic party, for all its faults, is a broad coalition. There is such a thing as a conservative Democrat. Ideologically, the Republican party is shrinking even as it gains popular support. The parties used to overlap in the middle. That is the part of the political spectrum where trade-offs can be admitted, where balances between what voters want and are willing to pay for can be struck, and where fiscal conservatives usually live.

I have to admit I had to look up risible.......

Otis just finds this all amusing, not arousing......he still wants to know why anyone would want a chicken? Do Republicans find chickens arousing?
