REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS MEDICARE PART D
Remember how when Conservative President George W. Bush and Congress passed the UNFUNDED Medicare Part D legislation and how the roll-out went all FUBAR and how the conservative blogs and media screamed bloody hell about the Bush administration's incompetence?
No. Neither do I.
But that's because today we live in hyper-partisan political age, and because the hyenas at FAUX NOOZ and other conservative media outlets play up anything that can get their easily manipulated followers a reason to throw tantrums AND forget about what their own politicians and president did in the very, very recent past. But the fact is that the unfunded Medicare Part D, which contributed to a $15.5 trillion deficit, was passed by a conservative president and congress, and no one witnessed people dressed in 18th century costumes with tea bags dangling from their hats and carrying yellow flags marching in the streets and bellowing on the teevee because their FREEDOMS WERE BEING TAKEN AWAY!
I wonder where those same people who meekly accepted all of the above were when all of that happened? But see, it's "soshallism" only when a liberal passes legislation; when a conservative president passes legislation that increases the deficit, that's MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
