I Watched Him

I tuned into Glen Beck on Fox today. Today, he was asking questions that no one wants to answer. Here is his list:

Am I hateful if I ask:

- Our unfunded liability for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid is close to $100 trillion. Is there any way to pay for these programs without bankrupting America?

- We are in so much debt, why spend more borrowed money on cap-and-trade and healthcare programs before we stop the flow of red-ink?

- The stimulus package funneled billions of dollars to ACORN. How does giving billions of dollars to ACORN stimulate the economy?

- If it was so important for congress to pass the stimulus bill before they even had time to read it why has only a fraction of the stimulus money been spent 6 months later?

- Bush said he had to abandon free market principles in order to save them, how exactly does that work?

- Why won’t member of Congress read the bills before they vote on them?

- Why are citizens mocked and laughed at when they ask their congressman to read the bills before they vote on them?

- Was the cash-for-clunkers program meant to save the earth or the economy? Did it accomplish either?

- How did Van Jones, a self-proclaimed communist become a special advisor to the president?

- Did President Obama know of Van Jones’ radical political beliefs when he named him special advisor?

- The Apollo Alliance claimed credit for writing the stimulus bill—why was this group allowed to write any portion of this bill?

- If politicians aren’t writing the bills and aren’t reading the bills, do they have any idea what these 1000 page plus bills actually impose on the American people?

- If the ‘public option’ health care plan is so good why won’t politicians agree to have that as their plan?

- If town hall meetings are intended for the politicians to learn what’s on our mind—why do they spend so much time talking instead of listening?

- Politicians are refusing to attend town hall meetings complaining, without evidence, that they are scripted. Does that mean we shouldn’t come out and vote for you since every campaign stop, baby kiss and speech you give is scripted?

- Why would you want to overwhelm the system?

- Is using the economic crises to rush legislation through congress what Rahm Emanuel meant when he talked about not letting a crises go to waste?

- What are the czars paid? What is the budget for their staffs/offices?

This is a great list. If anyone spots someone who is willing to answer any of these let me know. I would love to have some of these answers myself.

I must say that you have done an exceptional job in covering this healthcare debate Ablur,.

My concern is that this federal government is going to get its claws into our (private healthcare) come hook or crook.
I understand that this public option plan is not competition, because no private plan can compete with those unlimited federal funds, that these feds can pull out of their own ass, or my ass, if they please, it’s a government take over, one way or the other.
But what is this crap about a results based alternative, really mean.
Will my (PRIVATE) doctors be punished now, by these feds, for trying to save my life?
This sounds to me, not to be much of a lesser, of two evils, for those of us who are still self reliant Americans.
20 years from now, God willing, I will have to accept those healthcare programs that my fellow Americans can afford to extend to me in Medicare, and Medicaid, but until then.
Stay the hell off my independent, and self reliant ass please.
