For years right wingers would taunt out the fact that Democrats were in the minority. That minority was very slim though. Both times Bush won the White House, it was so damn close.
So these same wingnuts who so boldly reminded us of our minority status over the past several years now find themselves in the minority. This isn’t by a few percentage points either.
Eight in 10 Americans favor expanding the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, or S-CHIP, including large majorities of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.
While the president has raised concerns about the additional cost of expanding S-CHIP, those who favor the proposal say they’d even be willing to pay more in taxes to help the program cover more children.
More generally, the poll finds that only about one in five Americans (22 percent) approve of the presidentâ€™s handling of health care. That’s lower even than his approval rating on Iraq (26 percent).
Ideologues like Michelle Malkin are thumping their chests over the S-CHIP fiasco going on. They have attacked children and basically advocated for abortion because a parent doesn’t have insurance (right to life unless it costs money!). That is how pathetic they have become, and now they are in the super-minority. 22% of this country approves of Bush’s veto. That sounds about like the FOX audience.
The problem is how these wingnuts approached the whole argument. They told lies to smear a 12 year old who suffered severely from an accident. For example – Malkin has constantly talked about insurance plans for a couple of hundred dollars. Wow! What a deal! Well she does fail to mention the fact that insurance companies will reject pre-existing conditions, such as these children suffer.
It is just another case of forgetting facts that the wingnuts are best known for. And when Malkin cries about losing this battle, we will sit back with the comfort of knowing who the winners are – the children who need this healthcare. Healthcare is family values and right to life. Apparently Malkin and the other right-wing blogs don’t care about family values and life. Their anger just proves that money trumps anything. So – who would Jesus let die?
