Burn, Baby, Burn



To the Town Hall Protesters:

If you believe what you are yelling, I dare you: do what the Viet Nam protesters did in the 1960s when they burned their draft cards in public – Burn your Medicare cards!!

Matches are cheap. You can get them in any gas station or bar on your way to the Town Hall meeting. THEN, try to find private insurance that will take you on with all your preexisting conditions.

Bet you won’t be able to find any insurance company that will take you on. If you, by chance do, you won’t be able to afford it. Stop believing lies. Make a living will to protect your family.

Medicare is the best health insurance I have ever had. Less paperwork for me, fast payment to my doctor, no denial of procedures or tests, no co-pay or sneaky deductible, and I have MY choice of doctor.

Also, when I have needed to call Medicare, I talked with an American in the United States, not someone in India, which happened when I had group health insurance.

Sen. Tom Coburn, Sen. Jim Inhofe, Rep. Mary Fallin: Give up your superb federal health care for which WE the American taxpayers pay, until you pass a comparable program for all Americans.

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
