Senator Ted Kennedy, prior to his death, was a leading proponent of Government Provided Health Care. Ironically, the plan he advocated would have simply given him some pain pills and sent him home. His brain cancer was incurable. His doctor said they could shrink the tumor, and perhaps add a short bit to his life, but there was no cure.
But, of course, Teddy Kennedy is more important than the lowly masses. He had the best Health Plan in the world, paid for (in large part) by your tax dollars. Not the bottom of the barrel plan in store for you.
In addition, Kennedy could afford the best care, and so what if it cost even a few million for a few extra days, he’s one of the elite.
Anyone else on the plan he was advocating would have been gone and buried months ago. No compassion. No help. You’re just not worth the money it would take to let you live those extra months. Besides, what could you accomplish?
In 2004, when Kennedy hoped his friend and the Junior Senator from Massachusetts John Kerry would defeat George W. Bush and become President, Kennedy couldn’t have Republican Governor Mitt Romney appoint Kerry’s replacement with a nasty Republican, so he spearheaded a successful effort to strip the Governor of the power. Now, with a Democrat in power in Massachusetts, and his death imminent, Kennedy decided it was time to restore the power to appoint an interim replacement.
One rule for Republicans, another for Democrats.
One rule for Ted Kennedy, another for the common people.
One rule for elitists Health Care, one rule for the masses.
I always admired Senator Kennedy’s sense of fairness and honor. His willingness to help the poor with your tax dollars. The way he always kept watch on the poor from his modest Cape Cod Compound. As Compounds go, I guess it was modest. I really can’t say. I have never lived in one.
Now, what I find reprehensible is the way the Democrats are preparing to exploit Kennedy’s death to advance their Socialized Medicine agenda.
Honestly, we need to let a great American legend rest in peace. Not sully his memory with an inferior health plan that Senator Kennedy would have never chosen for himself.
If his death is to mean anything, let us all work to provide the fantastic Private Health Care Plan that Ted Kennedy chose for himself.
To do less is to sully his life and dishonor this great man.
