Why Don't Republicans Care About the Middle Class?

The Republican Health Farce Plan Would Not Insure a Single New Person.

Republicans literally believe that if you cannot afford to care for yourself because you are impoverished, you are better off dead.

Their plan not only did not insure anyone who is currently uninsured, but it sought to FURTHER DEREGULATE the insurance industry, which would jack up rates even further. The Democrats' Plan will insure 36 MILLION-PLUS new Americans.

When will the Republicans learn?

Deregulation under Bush led to the fiscal crisis that we are currently in. His economic deregulation policies have been determined to be a singular cause of the excesses that led to this country's financial crisis by independent policy groups like the Brookings Institution and the Strategic Foresight Group. McCain actually wanted to FURTHER deregulate the banks and insurance companies when he was running for president. We'd be in a second Great Depression if he had been elected.

Back to the laughable Republican health plan: the Republicans would not even have HAD a health plan if the Democrats hadn't drafted one. They think everything is fine, while thousands of American citizens die every single year because they cannot pay for medications. How can the Republican Party sleep at night, knowing that they did not try to help these people?

Wait - they probably dismiss them as homosexuals and minorities who do not deserve government assistance. Unbelievable.

Let's see what the wingnuts say below. This should be good.

    do you pick for data or rhetoric? The dems and media portray Romney as a wealthy guy who will harm the middle classification and Obama as a guy who cares deeply approximately them. The data are, below Obama, the middle classification has declined greater considering that his restoration than throughout the time of the decline of 08. popular wealth of the middle classification has been decreased by ability of over 40 5%. seem it up. you nonetheless wont have self belief it - yet after 4 greater years you will.

    Socialism did not make America the greatest country in the world and give it's people the highest standard of living. Nor did Socialism give us a great health care system. Republicans know that. So they oppose the Socialized health care system of the Marxists.

    Lets look at the government's record:

    Medicare - broke

    Medicaid - broke

    Social Security - broke

    Fanny Mae - broke

    Freddie Mac - broke

    Postal service - broke

    Welfare - broke

    Government run health care - a very successful, efficient, affordable program free of corruption and helping the people. Yeah right.

    And the Dem alternative is to drive the entire country into bankruptcy to line the pockets of the insurance industry. The Dem's plan may insure more, but at what cost? Food? Do you not get that if you can't afford food or shelter because it's mandated law that you must give your money to the gazillionaire insurance company, your health will be damaged. Do you not get that if you loose your house because you cannot pay for it because you have to give your money to the gazillionaire insurance company, that's bad for your health? How is it that you don't get that. Do you not get that not everyone will be insured anyway...and the poor schmucks who simply do not have the money to line the pockets of insurance moguls will have to give extra money to the government in fines, thus making poor people that much more poor. And who will pay for all this...the poorest of the poor, who are already on Medicare and Medicaid---to start. The Dems are actually trying to derail this country into financial oblivion, while smiling and blaming the Reps. BTW: I'm neither. Both have really stupid plans.
