    Don’t worry, they won’t do anything for the good of the country.

    Because Jesus loves to watch poor people in red states slowly die in their shacks.

    Yeah, they’re all dropping like flies, right? You read news stories every day about the poor starving in their shacks in America every day, don’t you?

    Countries all around the world are rushing to imitate the US health insurance system. Not.

    If all you look at is CNN, BSNBC, and their ilk, of course.

    At least Mr. Asay is up front about the extremist membership getting smaller and smaller.

    Even folks a little on the slow side eventually notice when their leaders have lost the path.

    “You read news stories every day about the poor starving in their shacks in America every day, don’t you?”

    No, you don’t. That doesn’t mean it’s not happening. Here’s another example: what happened today to American troops in Afghanistan? Don’t know? Doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

    I have a friend with Stage 4 liver disease. He worked hard all his life, and put in almost 20 years in the Navy. Built his own house and paid for it. Then his wife got lung cancer. They qualified for Medicaid, but only after they had spent every penny they had saved and inherited. He delayed treatment for her last two years with him. Now that she’s gone, he is trying to get help for himself. His doctor says that if he goes to work, he will die. So he collects disability for the time being. Although the disability payments have not gone up, his medications plan has recently determined that he makes less than $100 per year too much, and so he has lost coverage. His meds are unattainable otherwise due to cost.

    When he dies, it won’t be in the paper. Neither will the story of my patient with MS who had to wait until this year to resume her meds, because her previous insurer stopped covering them last August.

    Nor will my patient with arthritis, diabetes, and glaucoma. Once she got into the “doughnut hole”, she stopped buying meds.

    Most people don’t realize they’re just one heart attack from being homeless, which is unconscionable in this day and age. By the time “it couldn’t happen to me” happens, you are SOL, because people believe the same as you do; that health care is readily obtainable and somewhat affordable regardless of your circumstances, and you’ll just be regarded as another “taker”, just part of that 47% that only cares about what the government can give them.

    Maybe, if you wear a white hat, people will recognize you’re one of the Good Guys. Good luck with that.

    Meanwhile, someone please tell me why this society has all the money it needs for worthless military toys and a missile defense system that will never work, but when it comes to keeping their friends and neighbors healthy, our money is too important to share.

    Easily found headlines:
    That’s the message of a new study that shows children are struggling with hunger in every county and congressional district in America.
    .
    n America today, nearly 17 million children don’t have access to enough food.
    .
    Going hungry: Nearly one in five Americans has been short of money.

    I did today. I’m in the U.K. and just today I watched an episode of the US “Secret millionaire”.

    I can remember a few times going hungry when I was a young lad. My father went hungry more than I did and we sufficed on home grown and preserved food for the most part. There are many in the same shape today, most of whom have working memebers of the family. The truth is that today’s “working wage” is not enough to support a family in many cases.
    As to the ‘toon, Kasich and Scott are willing to accept the Medicaide portion of “Obamacare” (not that it will provide health care to many that need it) but it will save the states money. Kasich’s approval rating this week passed 50% for the first time since taking office.

    Which part of the Bible did Asay use for his biblical worldview for this cartoon?

    Not every day I invoke Glenn Beck, but when the biggest RWNJ that’s been on TV in the past 5 years says the pre-ACA system was bad, it was probably bad.
