A Tea Bagger’s revolt?

Good morning, Netizens...

This morning's David Horsey cartoon may either please or displease, depending upon which side of the political aisle one sits. For those still searching for affordable health care insurance, there is an ominous air wafting across the country, because as of recent times, it does appear that affordable health insurance may be headed down the road to certain doom, or at least so badly-fractured as to render it useless.

Is the Obama camp's use of the phrase “Tea Bagger” going to cost the Democratic Party votes come next election, as it perhaps just did in Massachusetts? That phrase used to describe Independent voters does sound a bit arrogant, doesn't it?

Before anyone attempts to tell me that we must buy health care insurance from the government, they better improve the economy to everyone can afford it. Right now the unemployment figures are not improving hardly at all, and if the present health care bill remains as it currently appears to be with no improvement on national employment, I probably will pull up my camp chair and sit on the side of those opposed to it.

You have to improve the national economy, giving us back the jobs that have been lost, before anyone can afford the “affordable” health care insurance. There is a real problem with the number of jobs being shipped overseas, and someone from either side of the party line has to make changes to that before most can afford the so-called government health care insurance.
