So Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson are on TV talking about how much better healthcare would be in America if only we let free enterprise do its job and allow health insurance companies to compete for customers instead of the dreaded new healthcare law that we have now…and they were laughing and chuckling and smiling and having a grand old time agreeing with each other about how much better and cheaper things are when you “outsource” to private enterprise and get government out of the way.
Anyway, their conversation suddenly took a serious tone when Ms. Coulter told a little anecdote about how her “friend” in California called her up one evening and told her that the friend’s sister had lost her insurance because of “Obamacare” and then when the sister became sick they couldn’t even go to the emergency room because they had no insurance. So days went by and Ms. Coulter had to go give a speech and when she got home afterwards she received a text from the friend informing her that the sister had gone into septic shock… and died! And the friend added in the text that her sister was “killed by “Obamacare!”
“Can I tweet that?” Ms. Coulter asked her friend. And her friend replied, “Of course you can. My sister would have wanted that.”
“Oh my God!” said a suddenly saddened Tucker. “That is really upsetting!”
“Shocking but not unexpected”, said Ms. Coulter with a chuckle (she’d apparently gotten over her grief) and then went on to conclude that “Obamacare” kills people just like she and all Republicans always knew it would and that the obvious answer is free market capitalism which as we all know saves countless lives all over the world and never is responsible for the death or mistreatment of anyone.
However, Never once did Ms. Coulter mention the fact that Blue Shield (the friend’s sister’s insurance company) did not pull out of California, like she said it had, and the company did not leave people without insurance, like she said it did… And in fact, in California, customers are allowed to keep their existing insurance plans through March…and of course that obvious scholar of all things American, Tucker Carlson, never once corrected her.
Nor did Ms. Coulter happen to mention to her friend that anyone can go to the ER in a hospital for emergency treatment, with or without insurance, and must be treated for life threatening illnesses. (any illegal alien knows that!) In fact that has been one of the cornerstones of Republican angst whenever they discuss the sorry state of healthcare in the U.S.A. and how expensive it is to supply free ER care to the millions or immigrants, illegals and uninsured in the country today.
And Ms.Coulter apparently forgot that she is a mufti millionaire and could have saved her friend’s sister by simply telling her friend to “take your sister to the doctor and send me the bill. I’m really rich! Spare no expensive because after all, we’re good friends!” …but she didn’t…and Mr. C. didn’t point that out to her either.
All Ann did was go give a speech and then text her friend, after her friend’s sister died, “Can I tweet that?”
Then Tucker and Ann went back to alternately smiling and looking concerned and feigning outrage while continuing to discuss how President Obama and his horrible “Obamacare” (actually it’s called the Affordable Care Act) was specifically designed by the President of the United States and forced down the American people’s throats just so he could purposely kill people.
And the thought of that was amusing to them too! Silly Americans, you elected a murderer! Hee, Hee, Hee…
And for some strange reason Ms. Coulter also failed to mention how, if only her friend’s sister had been a Liberal Democrat, this all would have been a very happy story with a very happy ending and also the title of her next book, “How Obama murders liberals and I don’t care!”
How do these horrible human beings live with themselves? They make a living laughing, joking, cavorting…lying and worst of all, pretending to care about relieving the abject despair that so many real Americans live with every day of their lives… when they really couldn’t give a rat’s ass about anyone other than their own sorry, selfish, insincere, money grubbing selves.
How do they do it?
Will somebody please tweet me that.
