Medicaid Expansion -- Proof that the ACA is an Unworkable Detriment to Americans...


Is there a reason for Medicaid expansion beyond the fact that the  ACA is not the solution to the problem of the uninsured we were told it would be?

I don't believe so.  
If the ACA were functional the same people who are now pushing for Medicaid expansion would be pushing for  Medicaid reduction.  That they are not is an indication that the ACA is failing not only America as a whole, but Americans individually. 
Alternatively we can argue with ACA dead-enders who claim the would ACA work if only we extend state care to all those individuals the ACA forced out of self-funded health insurance.  Mind you these are the same people who also call for expanded unemployment to cover those forced out of work due to the ACA and these are the same people who wish to expand programs to tend to the growing class of newly part-time workers who only exist due to the ACA. 
But hey,  these are Democrats and they care about you; it's their fantasy.  Perhaps we should let them tend the injuries  they cause... let them offer band-aids to those they maim as they swing their ball-peen hammer of "health-care" upon America.

Jan Brewer Chose the New Church Lady in Town...


In the press there have been a lot of comparisons to the Jim Crow south in regard to Arizona's religious tolerance bill. The subtext is that Republicans were somehow responsible for the Jim Crow south, and that their intolerance then is reflected today in intolerance for homosexuals today.

The history as well as the reality is quite different from the press narrative.

The segregated south was a result of Democrat Jim Crow laws which only represented a step back from the Southern Slavery rights Democrats fought but failed to retain.  Remember that Lincoln was a Republican.

It was Republicans who not only fought for the liberty of slaves, but it was Republicans who fought for an end to Jim Crow and it was Republicans who wrote the Civil Rights Act of 1964 while Democrats filibustered the same.

In the end all Democrats did for the liberty of black Americans was to change their mind in 1964.

As to Arizona, religious liberty is not a "fig leaf", it is a foundational precept upon which our nation is founded and it should be understood that coercion in regard to forcing individuals to act against their religious conscience is a legitimate concern.

But, in short, what is being asked of our nation is to choose between virtues, a liberal virtue of intolerance toward the religious beliefs of others or the American virtue of tolerance and respect toward religious diversity.  Thus the real source of intolerance is Democrats, both during the Jim Crow south they crafted and the intolerance toward the religious Democrats promulgate today.

In the end there is a new "Church Lady" in town and her name is liberal Democrat. Start hoarding your salt, your colas, your guns and your religion.
