So last week Congressman Kagen said he was honored to be a part of the healthcare bill.
“The fact is this is a good bill, and we can continue to improve it as time moves forward,” Kagen told a teleconference. “It’s good for patients. It saves lives. It saves jobs. It strengthens Medicare. It’s great for small businesses. This will be a bill of historic proportions, and I’m so honored to be a part of it.”
He also had this to say:
“This is something I’ll be happy to campaign on at the appropriate time,” he said. “I’ll fight my heart out to guarantee that these rights we fought so hard to obtain do not go away.”
“In the 1960s, we fought very hard to secure our civil rights at the lunch counter and now every citizen will soon have equal rights and no discrimination at the pharmacy counter or the doctor’s office and most importantly at the hospitals.”
Some questions for Kagen:
How does it save jobs? Hate to break it to you but not every bill you vote for doesn’t save jobs. In fact this one will cost jobs.
How does making cuts to Medicare while expanding it strengthen it?
Are you honestly trying to compare this to civil rights? Trying to define this as a race issue?
You are right that it’s a bill of historic proportions. Historic in the sense that it moves America one step closer to socialism. And historic in the sense that it passes even more debt on to our children and grandchildren.
Glad to see you’re honored to be a part of it. Glad to see your honored to be part of the process as well. You know, the “Washington Way” and “Chicago-style tactics” used to pass a bill the 54% of Americans want repealed.
Can’t wait to see how you defend this vote? Oh and if you’re so honored why not share the numbers on how many called or emailed in support of the bill compared to the number opposed?
