Loose-Screws Cruz

Loose-Screws Cruz and the Republican conservatives continue to run interference for the health insurance industry

Wonder how much the insurance companies are funneling to this guy’s campaign through the Club for Growth’s PACs, their individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals’ immediate families who contributed $705,657 to his campaign? It’s easy for this clown who can purchase private health insurance offered through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program to ban with the one (Bozell-the-Clown) who recently came to Jackson Ms to tell the unwashed masses to tell their congresspersons to repeal a plan that allows other Americans to buy insurance on exchanges. Loose-Screws Cruz can choose from among Consumer-Driven and High Deductible plans that offer catastrophic risk protection with higher deductibles, health savings/reimbursable accounts and lower premiums, or Fee-for-Service (FFS) plans, and their Preferred Provider Organizations (PPO), or Health Maintenance Organizations. Loose-Screws Cruz and other “conservatives” seem determined to conserve and preserve the gap in health and wealth they have by opposing a plan that closes the donut hole for seniors. At $165,200 per year, Loose-Screws and the rest of the court jesters can better afford to assist in meeting the needs of the seniors in their families who themselves probably take advantage of the socialism bequeath to them by a previous Democratic administration, that socialism known as Medicare. Yes, the jokers can probably assist those family members without assistance from the Affordable Care Act. Repeal probably seems reasonable to them. But to the unwashed masses, pulling-up affordable health care, including premium rebates(last year’s rebates totaled $1.1 billion), premium containment(Many Americans will pay even less than the top-line rates after factoring in government subsidies for their health coverage, with some paying nothing at all for crucial medical coverage), life-time caps removal, and funds for more primary care doctors, by the roots is no laughing matter. However, placing themselves in the service of this cause becomes a game of Russian Roulette with the gun pointed at vulnerable Americans. The jokers and clowns have wealth and their donors to keep them safe if and when the trigger is pulled. This leaves the puppet masters and their jokers and clowns laughing all the way to the bank.
