Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell sees where the Republican Party is going (not far) and naturally wants to lead the way. Unlike that dumb cow Michael Steele, big Mitch is not about to let this train(wreck) leave the station without its captain on board. No sir-ee!
That's why this responsible GOP leader from Kentucky is taking his dire warning of a health care reform holocaust straight to the American people!
Don't let those demonic Democrats fool you--the public option just "may cost you your life."
Luckily, Mitch McConnell is here to guide us through this medical apocalypse.
Excerpts of his enlightened interview on Dennis Miller's radio show:
No we certainly do not! Anything's better than letting the evil government of this country we adore be in charge of a program that directly affects the lives of millions of its citizens. That would be like asking death on a date.
MCCONNELL: Well, it doesn’t make any difference frankly whether you opt-in or you opt-out, it’s still a government plan. You know, Medicaid, the program for the poor now, states can opt-out of that, but none of them have. I think if you have any kind of government insurance program, you’re going to be stuck with it and it will lead us in the direction of the European style, you know, sort of British-style, single payer, government run system. And those systems are known for delays, denial of care and, you know, if your particular malady doesn’t fit the government regulation, you don’t get the medication.
MILLER: Right. (Really Dennis??)
MCCONNELL: And it may cost you your life. I mean, we don’t want to go down that path.
Call me old fashioned, but I'd rather play it safe and stick with what works. Or what doesn't, if you're Republican. Better screwed than sorry!
