The attorney’s general from Texas and 12 other states I believe, have filed suits fighting the health care bill supposedly on behalf of their state.
The sad part is that I believe most people don’t support the action. Right now we have trouble paying for our schools, our roads and bridges, our public assistance programs as well as a slew of other things. With all of that said Greg Abbott decides to spend God knows how many MILLIONS of OUR dollars on fighting a partisan battle.
To be honest, the money he will piss away trying to make himself look good to the GOP they could use to help many people in the state buy the insurance as required by 2014.
Not only that, he keeps saying that forcing people to buy insurance is unconstitutional as least as far as Texas’ constitution goes, yet the state forces ALL car owners to have insurance.
How is that any different? You force us to buy car insurance supposedly because it is meant to provide safety to others on the road who may be financially devastated by you crashing into them. Makes sense right? How is the healthcare bill any different?
People without health insurance are causing a huge financial burden on all of the states including Texas! Think about it.
Let’s call this whole uproar what it really is, partisan bullshit. I know republicans that will benefit from most of what Obama has done, yet they trash talk him all of the time.
Why? Because he is a “baby killing democrat” in their minds. Even when you explain to them that Obama happens to be against abortion. Not reverse the laws against it but he doesn’t support it which is close enough.
But even that does not matter. We as a country are far to divided along party lines because that is what the politicians want. That’s how they get elected and that is also how they make boat loads of money.
I guess the whole divided we fall thing doesn’t matter anymore. The sad part is that both parties are very fundamentally flawed and will be the death of our country one day.
Stay safe and healthy!
