Is there a contest going on somewhere for dumbest comment of the year by a high-ranking government official? I’d like to submit an entry.
And let me tell you, with Biden and Reid hanging around, that’s a tough category. But this one from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should win it.
The American people having a healthier life. What are Founders wanted for them: Life – having a healthier life – liberty, the freedom to pursue their happiness, not job-locked, but having benefits that having healthcare policies that are portable, they could be self-employed, be a photographer, they could start their own business, they could change jobs, they could reach their aspirations. And isn’t that a wonderful thing for a society and for an economy? Any questions?
First of all the Founding Fathers didn’t want to give anyone the freedom to become a photographer because photography wasn’t invented until the 1800s and THEY HAD NO FREAKING IDEA WHAT IT WAS.
And are their sections of the Federalist Papers dealing with the necessity of portable health insurance?
But to continue in a more serious vein, is there anybody with an IQ numbering above 90 who thinks that Thomas Jefferson, who wrote the phrase “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” into the Declaration of Independence and who is the great progenitor of the philosophy of states’ rights – or any of the other Founders – would have countenanced this massive intrusion of the federal government into our lives that is Obamacare?
The Founders were concerned with protecting life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness against government, not using government to, as Obamacare does, take a little life and liberty from some and give it to others.
What childish inane thinking – the Founders said “life,” so they must also mean guaranteed subsidized health care. I guess the Founders would have supported any government program you can think of. Isn’t everything about “life”?
