Bill Maher New Rules, Americans are Stupid, August 7, 2009

Just last week I was commenting on how Bill Maher got in trouble over at CNN with Wolf Blitzer. He called Americans stupid!  MY GOD!  CNN became swamped with email and phone calls which cried out WE ARE REALLY STUPID AND HERE ARE THE EMAILS TO PROVE IT!

New Rules – Bill Maher says Birthers are losers and lizard people

    HHS had an interesting town hall meeting this afternoon. Their health care reform ideas are brilliant and hopefully America will be better off when a bill is put together and passed. I hope everyone will just relax, listen and study the facts then make up your own mind as to what is the truth and what is a myth. People need to think for themselves rather than listening to comedians and commentators on any news or radio program. If you really want to get the best news, BBC America does a better job than CNN, Fox, MSNBC, ABC, NBC or CBS. Google HHS and read for yourself what their goals are. If you are one of the 187 million who already have health care insurance and are happy with it, keep it. You don’t have to do anything but pay more every year for the insurance and pay more in those deductibles. If you have Medicaid or Medicare, nothing is going to change except you may see more efficiency in paper work and quality of care. If you aren’t happy with what you have take a look at the public option, it’s your choice. Having competition will most likely cut double digit increases every year in those health care insurance premiums to lobby congress with your money, not to pay for your health care, plus if you loose your job, or have a pre existing condition those rich insurance companies can no longer drop your coverage or deny you health care when you need it most. In other words, they can’t ration your health care anymore if a bill gets passed. Rick Boucher voted no on HCR because he’s worried about hospital survival. He is well aware of the acceptable standards of health care in this rural area and is more concerned about the big corporate profit machine surviving than you, his constituents. I don’t think he is in touch with health care reform at all because reform will help hospitals cut costs to help them survive. It may even weed out those who shouldn’t even be in business all across America. Hospital acquired infection is a problem that needed addressed many years ago and is being ignored to this day even by Governor Bredesen, Governor Kaine and Congressman Boucher. It will save money but more importantly it will save lives, but the status quo is just fine the way it is in VA and TN, according to the politicians. When I worked in health care, I wasn’t there to make the insurance industry or the hospital wealthy, I was there to help a patient get healthy. It’s sad to see what happened to what used to be the best health care in the world. To me, no no no and no choice is not an option, we need reform now.

      Agreed! I too wish people will get the facts, and agree about BBC America as well. Still, I have a queasy
      feeling that Bill Maher is entirely too right about the lack of intellect and motivation to seek the correct
      information in this country, but for a very few. I hope I’m proven wrong.
