Apparently they're cold calling all possible phone numbers because the RWNJs know better than to call MY house so I though this was pretty interesting.
Newt bloviated on with the usual ObamaCare hatred, ranted on about how socialist Barack Obama has put his liberal agenda on steroids, how freedom is dying, droned on about how the "conservative majority" in this country need to get our country back and, oh, by the way, sign his petition to end ObamaCare and donate to The Cause. Just Press 1.
Also interesting is how the call wasn't associated with some group which I thought needed to be disclosed. You know the kind; the astroturf, billionaire funded type with a patriotic sounding name along with "freedom loving citizens" or some such hooey. Nope, not this one. Just Newt, like a pre-recorded personal call that invaded my home and as welcome as a hoard of cockroaches.
Perhaps Newtie sees opportunity here - for himself, of course. Grifters gotta grift, donchaknow. After seeing the couple of million names Ted Cruz just put on this own personal email fundraising list, Newt sees piles of gold in beefing up his own.
Despite his nice gig on CNN, it seems he always needs just a little more. And speaking of CNN, how does dialing for dollars for himself fit in with any ethics clauses in his contract? Hmmmmm.
At the point in time where RWrs should be keeping a low profile after their massive failure as economic terrorists, Newt once again shows that these guys have no shame.
ObamaCare lives! It's not going anywhere except into effect. Republicans can still hate on it, trash-talk it, spread the vilest lies they can invent (death panels, anyone?), and try to convince people it's a total failure, but it's all in vain. As people see it, sign up for it, finally get insurance they can afford, those lies will come back to bite the liars in their butts.
On January 1, 2014, policies will go into effect and people will have access to care that has long been denied to them. Coupled with the free annual physicals and routine tests, problems will be diagnosed earlier when they can be more effectively treated with far less cost. With less unreimbursed care, there will be less cost shifting onto the bills of those with insurance. Costs will go down, insurance costs will be reduced - all good things that will come year after year.
They can keep hating, keep fundraising off the wild-eyed expectations of a minority of zealots in this country, keep telling lies and spewing propaganda, keep trying to promote their own personal political profiles, but they're appealing to a smaller and smaller number of people. And many of those folks are going to enroll in ObamaCare.
Newt, don't call my house. It just gives me the opportunity to laugh at you and invite others to join in laughing at your fail.
