A War of Words and meanings

To start this post we need to have a couple of definitions nailed down so that there isn’t room to quibble.
One is sophistry:

  1. a subtle, tricky, superficially plausible, but generally fallacious method of reasoning.
  2. a false argument; sophism

The other is Pettifog:

  1. to bicker or quibble over trifles or unimportant matters.
  2. to carry on a petty, shifty, or unethical law business.
  3. to practice chicanery of any sort.

Over the past few weeks, you have heard nothing by lies, sophistry, hogwash and pettifogging from the despicable Democrats about health care, to wit, ObamaCare. Let us get something correct concerning this issue.

This argument isn’t about Health Care, merely go to any hospital ER and you must be attended to for what ever ails you. If you cannot pay, do what every pauper, illegal alien and ne’er do well in America does. Tell them you can’t afford the bill. SCOTUS in all it’s wisdom proclaimed free hospitalization for deadbeats in America.
If you find the ER overcrowded, merely let out the word that la Migra is on the way; you’ll be next in line after all the illegals depart. Works in Welfare offices too.

No we’re not talking about Health Care; we’re talking about FREE INSURANCE for deadbeats, illegals and paupers. More to the point, who is going to pay for it! Certainly not the Poobahs. They don’t pay income taxes; Taxes are collected on earned income, read ordinary income. The Poobahs cut coupons on bonds (interest) or collect dividends on stocks. If the bonds are Munis, they’re not taxable. The rest at most are taxed at 15% on Schedule D 1040. Now you know why Buffet and Gates advocate tax the rich. More chicanery, pettifogging if you prefer.

Insurance, like health care, is not a right nor an entitlement. One may purchase insurance on the open market if one wants adding amendments as desired and not bound to government fiat. Actually what does the government know about your needs or wants. In truth, what government program has ever worked? If you think one that has and didn’t cost triple proposed projected budget, get your figures together and make your case.

You heard Fauxahontas tell the ignoranti that the Republicans will kill thousands with their new health care plan. Pure pettifoggery on her part. A complete attempt to conflate health care with insurance.
What the Donkeys have is nada, zilch, nothing and less than that to offer. Perhaps they want to see the final contact of the death spiral of ObamaCare. That will be impressive.

Then Congress needs do nothing but let the FREE MARKET operate. The only persons to be objecting to that would be the Marxist/Socialists such as Sanders and Warren. All sophistry since one does not have a thing to do with the other.
All the Democrat/Socialist/Communists want is the complete takeover of the health care system creating a single payer plan which reduces everyone’s care to the lowest common level: Poor.
