He wants to “re-earn the trust of the American people“.
The question that sprinted to the front of my mind was, “Why now?” I mean, you have been lying and cheating us for so long at this point, why the change of heart? Why would you worthless, kowtowing, Corporately-owned shills want our trust after the immense screwing that you have given us for decades?
Let’s see: from this graphic, it appears that your biggest contributors are found (SURPRISE) in Insurance and Finance. Isn’t that an amazing coincidence? But there is nothing to see here Sheople. Just go back to the polls and select the man that is heavily responsible for the Tennessee mindset of idiocy.
Read what the pawn of Big Insurance wrote and how he titled his speech to the Senate (I know you will flock to his magnetic lying personality):
Alexander: “The Era of the 1,000-Page Bill Is Over”
Calls for Step-by-Step Approach to Re-Earn the Trust of the American People
Yes, Sir. After all these years in the Senate, playing the game by supporting such large bills that you and your sister party, the demoRATs, have repeatedly tried to pull the wool over our eyes with; bills you know that hardly no one will read, much less comprehend, are ready to be the populist choice and make it easier for the citizenry to understand the issue. Is that your purpose, Lamar?
Let me explain how late you are to the dance.
I have already picked up your date, danced the night away, took her home and bedded with her and told her (your Mama) “so long”. You are just showing up to get your tux.
We ain’t as stupid as you think.
Here, let me give you something that you may be able to read and it fits easily in your “less than 1,000 pages”.
or even this pdf (you may want to have your assistant download this for you and print it out as to avoid the embarrassment of your lack of skill set).
Now, I do want to move on to the gist of his bullshit:
September 15th, 2009 – WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today made the following remarks on the floor of the Senate (a full transcript of Senator Alexander’s remarks is available upon request):
• “It’s time for Congress to admit that we don’t do comprehensive well. It’s time for us to admit that the era of the 1,000-page bill is over.”
Wonder why there is always 1,000 pages? Could it have to do with all the bullshit fluff that is added either to water down or taint the initiative? Wonder why you couldn’t do a concise 30 page bill like HR 676?
• “I think it’s obvious that we in Congress have been biting off more than we can chew on immigration, health care, and other issues. We’ve been producing 1,000-page bills which most members of Congress haven’t even read, in which voters have no confidence, and out of which will come unintended consequences and results that are bad for our country . . . it inevitably adds to the debt—the national debt, the government’s debt, our taxpayer debt—at a time when we’re adding $9 trillion to the debt in just ten years and everyone is worried about how we’re going to pay that back. And at a time, fairly or unfairly, where the American people are seeing a new administration propose, it seems like, a new Washington takeover every other day—the banks, insurance companies, student loans, and now health care.”
Wow, so you are saying we should streamline the process and do something that will save the country money regarding healthcare (and the other issues you list)? I wonder, Mr Conservative, did you read that HR 676 bill yet? Did you happen to glance at it while visiting your attending physician on staff for $503/year just 1 floor below you?
I wonder if your goal is to streamline it down to what is available to you? Somehow, I doubt it because you are a cheat and liar.
• “I suggest we change course—that we follow rule 259 from my ‘Little Plaid Book’ and we begin to work on major issues facing our country step by step to re-earn the trust of the American people, to begin to solve the big challenges of this country. We bite off what we can swallow. We make sure we get it right. And after we’ve taken the first steps, then we can take another series of steps until we eventually resolve the problem. A few steps in the right direction are a good way to get where you want to go.”
I don’t want to know any of your pygmy pony prostitutes from your little plaid book, Alexander. Or maybe you meant this rule number 259? I suppose for once, I can agree, but I miss your point unless you all want us to pull a Beck.
Look, let me explain that the bullshit that you have frothed at us is old news, dude. Are you so far gone down the path of corruption that you believe the shit you say and it just isn’t the regular old lying talking points? Is your goal to “take back the Whitehouse”, so you reTHUGlicans now want to act as if your care, after decades of proving you don’t?
No, sir. Most of us are not quite that stupid.
Let me give you a hint about how to win back the Whitehouse and a majority in Congress (write this down before your little mind forgets it). Take the reigns and implement Single Payer Not-For-Profit Health Care for each and every American (that’s probably enough for you to take it back, but if not…)
Bring each and every one of our Troops home NOW, Stop the boondoggle that you and your cronies began with lies and deceit. Bring them home and take that money and FIX our helath care.
To ensure your next win reTHUGlicans in a landslide, deny all monies coming from Health Insurance and Big Money, in general. Change the rules of campaign finance.
Want to know how to keep the leadership forever?
Instill term limits and Preferential Voting across the USA and eliminate Corporate Personhood.
You would be guaranteed victory across the board for decades to come. (I’ll address why they will NEVER do any such thing in a moment)
• “In the end, we need results, and I’ve concluded that the best way to get results on health care, on immigration, on other major issues facing our country is to put aside the 1,000-page bills and re-earn the trust of the American people by working step by step to begin to solve the challenges facing our country.”
Immigration issues do not even blip the screen like Health Care is dominating the screen, Lamar. Our biggest two issues in this country right now are the Empire you support (which is breaking us, just like it did the Roman Empire) and health care. The money saved by a comprehensive Single Payer system (or something derived from evaluating every Universal system in the world, picking and choosing the best practices and implementing that) will save Billions of dollars and give us much better care and longer, healthier lives.
Mr Alexander, when you get back from your tax payer provided medical services just under your feet, please consider that it is the very voters that put you where you are that is paying for that service you and your selfish, “bought and paid for” fellow criminals in Congress use. We knew you had it good on our nickel, but the magnitude is just coming out.
And we WILL be pissed, Lamar (I am already). I just tend to be ahead of the curve.
I intend to inform as many people as humanly possible about your lies, deceit and thievery off the backs of your constituency. This, I promise.
You don’t fool us all, Lamar. We aren’t all oblivious rednecks who can’t think beyond your friends at Fox or the Trilateral Commission or the Zionist owners/controllers.
We also know that the “Public Option” is a diversion. It has been working pretty well because you have the Big Guns of the MSM and the gullible Sheople that suck off Barack Obama. But more and more information is arising that will tear down your mountain of lies and sleight of hand tricks set to fool us. Thing is, you folks are no David Copperfield. Your “magic” is bad and the tricks are easy to see. The problem thus far is that the Sheople haven’t even been watching the show (shit, we can’t miss American Idol or the 140 consecutive hours of Michael Jackson’s untimely death, etc, etc, etc)
I believe we are paying much closer attention lately. We are keeping our eyes on the hand that isn’t flashy… the one really doing the illusion.
We know now, at least the smartest of us (which basically means the ones who don’t watch the TV and listen to Beck, Limpballs and the like).
Lamar, in a nutshell, dude, you are a day late and a dollar short. You and every one of you worthless money grubbing American hating traitors need to go. I will do my part to educate the others to make sure they see you for what you are. A cheat and a scoundrel.
