Ryan then went on to say the following during Budget Committee today: “This abuse of the process, this abuse of the constitution…are not worthy of your support.” Among other things. The full eight minutes is well worth watching:
If this debate had actually been about health care, we could have worked together to get a grip on costs, make quality care more accessible, address exclusions for preexisting conditions and realign the incentives of insurance companies with those of patients and doctors. Yet this process — including its embarrassing conclusion — demonstrates that the debate has never been about health-care policy but, instead, paternalistic ideology.
Should the Democrats’ health-care train wreck make it to the president’s desk, it will be a pyrrhic victory, and its devastating consequences will take their toll on our health-care system, our budget and our economy.
A Pyrrhic victory, perhaps. But, we cannot let it become an actual one. Our government is outright smugly dismissing us; ignoring the will of the people and, in fact, ignoring The Constitution. Rep. Paul Ryan knows that this is our moment and we must seize it. We, The People must not be willing to return to silence and apathy. We cannot lose sight of how high the stakes are. We cannot become dejected and give up. This isn’t about health care reform. It’s about Liberty and our very way of life. If it passes, we continue the fight to get it repealed as swiftly as possible before the insidious nature of socialized medicine can take root.
Freedom isn’t a political talking point, it isn’t even political at all. It is simply a way of being, despite the best attempts by others, in this case our own government, to take it away. We must stand firm with Rep. Ryan and all who seek to keep us free. Stay angry and use the anger to keep fighting; we can’t risk doing otherwise.
“Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have.”
– Ronald Reagan
