“Don’t forget, I got everybody in my state insured. One hundred percent of the kids in our state had health insurance. I don’t think there’s anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record.”
That’s right. Attempting to insure everyone shows great empathy. It is the type of initiative that a truly compassionate politician would support. Which is why in a campaign speech 40 minutes later Romney supported the opposite of that:
“You see, Obamacare is really Exhibit No. 1 of the president’s political philosophy, and that is that government knows better than people how to run your lives. It is a view that government should stand between you and your doctor. I don’t believe in a bigger and bigger government…I believe in freedom.”
That’s right, Romney believes in freedom. Like the freedom to die in a field or a street. I don’t know about you but I’m sick and tired of the government stepping in and attempting to give everyone medical care. If people want to sink into unmanageable debt before eventually being discarded to suffer from their untreated diseases they should have that choice.
And it’s empathetic, left-leaning politicians who want to take away that choice. Politicians like Mitt Romney who five minutes later said:
“Now and then the president says I’m the grandfather of Obamacare. I don’t think he meant that as a compliment but I’ll take it…I’m proud of the fact that in my state, after our plan was put in place, every child has insurance, 98 percent of adults have insurance.”
Obviously there is a conflict in ideas here. On the one hand Mitt Romney wants to seem empathetic, on the other Mitt Romney wants to win the election. So there really is only one way to settle this once and for all! Which is why I’m proposing an additional Presidential debate that focuses on the issue of healthcare. This debate will feature Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney versus Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney.
The King of Empathy vs. The King of a Private Island in the Cayman’s
The Grandfather of Obamacare vs. The Grandfather of killing grandfathers. I for one cannot wait to see these two duke it out. So I will send out an email to the pro-universal healthcare – [email protected] And the anti-government health option [email protected] I just hope that both candidates agree to attend.
