Repeal Of Social Security And Medicare Promoted By Marsha Blackburn And Michele Bachmann

The Republican Party has been promoting the view that Barack Obama is a Socialist, and they have been bitterly resisting any health care plan.

But now two of their “illustrious” women members in the House have gone one step further: They are promoting the privatization of ” Socialist” programs such as Social Security and Medicare! 🙁

Tennessee Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn has introduced such legislation, and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has also endorsed it. How crazy is this, that two women who have to know that women are more the beneficiary of both Social Security and Medicare since women tend to live longer than men, are so mean spirited and ideological as to want to end all government involvement in these programs, which have meant so much to the promotion of a safety net that protects the middle class and the poor!

One has to wonder how the GOP manages to recruit these women, who are, along with others, among the most extreme members of the party! These Congressmen are absolutely crazy, nutty, nasty, vengeful women who have no care about the poor or those less fortunate!

If this represents the Republican party, which I fear it does, then the GOP is doomed to be a minority party for a long time, UNLESS they can somehow promote enough fear and hysteria and panic to convince Americans foolishly to vote for a party that gives not a damn for anyone except the rich and the powerful! 🙁

    Of course, the ideal thing to do would be to allow their bills to come to the floor and then vote on the repeal of social security. The Republican Party can take the affirmative on that issue and the Democratic Party can vote in the negative. That might liven things up for the 2010 election.

    Marsha Blackburn and Michelle Bachmann should really be ashamed of themselves. I guess they think they can do anything and they will still get re-elected. I know Marsha is in a gerrymandered district created just for her with a 70-30 Republican advantage—so how can she possibly lose no matter how crazy she gets. I pray to God that this year will be different. Blackburn has got to go.
