MSNBC reported Friday that the Republicans in Congress want to save $8 billion by cutting the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP.
Will someone explain how this behavior is consistent with the pro-life philosophy and how these “Christians” can be so heartless as to forget the story of the Good Samaritan, a man who paid out-of-pocket for the well being of a stranger who was beaten and robbed?
What the Republican Party truly seeks to do is to show that the federal government is unreliable by setting it up for failure, and they’re not above killing children to make their point-those very same children whom they wanted forced into the world because they supposedly had a ‘right to life’ like everyone else-unless you just happen to be one of those ‘everyone else’s’ who has a disability.
Who is going to suffer from this? The poor, of course. People with good insurance plans will be able to take their children to specialists without a single worry-just like it was before the days of Obamacare.
And where is this $8 billion going? Did the Pentagon dream of some jet it just has to have, or it won’t be able to defend America from terrorists anymore?
If any budget should face cuts, it’s the Department of Defense, and the Veterans Administration. I’m sorry, but that’s the breaks when one is stupid enough to believe a Republican and go fight in a war he doesn’t understand. Children are innocent victims and should not be punished for the Pentagon’s shopping spree.
Religious hypocrites who vote Republican should read 1 John 3:17-18. Wait! They’re too lazy, so I’ll put it right here for them:
1 John 3:17-18New International Version (NIV)
17 “If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
Conservatives should read Matthew 25:42-46, because that’s when the joke will be on them, as they’re all going to burn in Hell for denying a poor child to see a doctor.
Let returning soldiers pay for their own God damned health care. They didn’t protect our freedom, they ruined our reputation-and they continue to do so.
Women and children should always get first priority in a nation which claims that it cherishes the concept of life. Then again, everyone around the world knows the United States of America is full of crap.
