Kennedy’s Health Care Proposal Infected With Ethics Violation

with 3 comments

Sometimes you see a story that shows you just how far the culture of corruption has taken hold of Washington.  This one though takes the cake.  Recently, Teddy Kennedy has been getting all sorts of favorable press for tackling increasing health care while suffering from brain cancer.

Can anybody say conflict of interest?!  Having a brain cancer sufferer in charge of health care is like putting your drunk uncle in charge of the family’s liquor cabinet.  Having somebody who has such a life threatening and debilitating disease is like putting Rush Limbaugh in charge of the sweets table at your wedding.  You may love the guy, but there are some things you just don’t do.

In Kennedy’s condition he will be pushing for more and more health care.  He’ll want patients to get all sorts of free medication and treatment simply because the lacked the forethought to put money aside to pay for their own medical needs.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with the medical care in this country that toughing it out won’t fix, but in Kennedy’s condition do you really think he’s going to understand that?  I sure don’t.

Let’s put some healthy people in charge of health care.  We need people who are healthy enough to know that health care in this country is just the way it should be.  Let your congressman know that you don’t support Kennedy’s unethical plan.  His constant use of expensive drugs and treatments will undoubtedly cloud his own judgment.

  1. That’s right – why can’t these sick people just pull themselves up by their bootstraps, I say, and just stop being such a drain on society. It’s probably all in their minds. This housing crisis is probably all their fault, too, theirs and the middle class – and especially the poor. Really, you know, if we could just be patient and stop being so needy, the rich would take care of us all – just like they do their designer dogs – through trickle down economics. Well, maybe we wouldn’t quite be taken care of as well as the dogs, but still, I’m sure they’re completely honorable and trustworthy and have our best interests at heart.

  2. Excellent post, Nate, and excellent comment, Shannon. I have nothing else to say. Ah! I thought of something! I saw Ted Kennedy in Congress in 1985, during my first visit to the US. He looked healthy then. He obviously didn’t take good care of himself during these two decades, or he wouldn’t have cancer now. Shame on him!
