Porter: Obamacare Will Kill Conservatives!

Janet Porter was the one who organized those protests at the office of John Boehner and threatened to rename Obamacare to Boehnercare (or, ya know, we could call it the Affordable Care Act, which is its actual name). And she told the crowd that “the IRS sit[s] on the death panels” and that they’ll kill off conservatives.

Our very lives are at stake. Not only are we paying for the abortion mandates, we’ve got IRS sitting on the death panels. Sarah Palin was right, they are going to decide who lives or dies. If they use the same tactics, we are all dead. If the IRS treats health care like they treat the Tea Party, we are all dead.

As Right Wing Watch points out, we should take this as seriously as her previous paranoid delusions that the hate crimes law would throw Christians in prison.

    What I’m getting from this is the private health insurance companies never refuse to pay for a treatment or have panels to decide what they will fund.

  • Chiroptera

    Well, Porter may have a point. If “Obamacare” actually succeeds in what it is meant to do, people might realize that conservatives are full of shit and there might be fewer conservatives.

    @matty1 #1:

    But that’s free enterprise, which makes it all right. In place of a panel of faceless bureaucrats (which would be a very bad thing), just imagine a giant Invisible Hand Of The Free Market, slowly strangling grandma to death.

    What buster said,

    I fail to see how this would be a bad outcome.

  • John Pieret

    But … but … with the FEMA camps ready to go and all that ammunition stockpiled, why would Obama need the IRS to get rid of conservatives? Oh, it’s just another delusion on the pile.

    It’s amazing how the same people who are convinced that the government is too incompetent to be trusted to do anything are so convinced that it’s so efficient that it can have all these secret plans to sneak up on True ‘Mercans.

  • Randomfactor

    I was skeptical at first, but Obamacare keeps getting better and better. Can they target the climate-change deniers first? Cuz that would be awesome.

  • Loqi

    Wait, there’s an abortion mandate now? But if we mandate abortions, there won’t be any reason to have chem trails and vaccines anymore. That’s cutting like half the Illuminati’s job and will result in unemployed Illuminatis. Sounds to me like they’re jealous of the Illuminati’s success and are trying to wage class warfare. Why do they hate job creators?

  • grumpyoldfart

    I love the reactions of the guys in the background. The woman is saying the Tax department is setting up death panels to kill citizens and the guys are yawning and nonchalantly checking their fingernails. Perhaps they’ve got exemptions.

    “If the IRS treats health care like they treat the Tea Party, we are all dead.”

     

    Dateline, the Near Future. Cleveland, Ohio. The IRS asked health care some questions to confirm that it is health care and not, in fact, a Dark Money front for partisan political activity today. Updates to this exciting news story as they come in…

  • Synfandel

    She’s right, of course. Just look across the border. Canada has universal public health insurance and it slaughters conservatives all the time. Well, okay, not exactly slaughters—more like converts to liberals by showing them how great universal public health insurance is. But still, they’re eliminating conservatives.

    Janet Porter: “If the IRS treats health care like they treat the Tea Party, we are all dead!”

    The construction of this sentence leaves some doubt as to the meaning of “they.” Porter treats the IRS as a singular entity: “IRS treats”. To be consistent, the “Tea Party” clause should have said “it treats”.

    But that’s over-analytical. Porter is merely speaking colloquially; she means the IRS in both places.

    This analyst sought members of the Tea Party for comments, but they had reportedly all perished under mysterious circumstances.

    Rule of thumb: when you find yourself saying “Sarah Palin was right”, check your work.

  • tfkreference

    Of course IRS are plural – there’s an S at the end.

  • eric

    She’s right. Each and every current ACA death panel has at least one IRS member on it. 😉

  • Azkyroth Drinked the Grammar Too :)

    Promise?

  • M can help you with that.

    @ 12 —

    The singular “they” has been around for centuries.

    I read posts like this one and think:

    “Why does Ed only ever post about stupid shit that is done by the fringe whackoz on the ReiKKKwing?”

    Then I see his clevernessosity.

    @14;

    Only if there is an apostrophe.

    To play devil’s advocate, as the elderly tend disproportionately conservative, the impact of care limits will continue to impact conservatives.

    Contrariwise, no more so than at present.

  • exdrone

    Working on the death panels is not a sexy as it sounds. The committee room is drafty, you have to sit on those chairs that you can’t properly adjust, and they insist on serving powdered creamer for the coffee. Some days you have to drag yourself in to compile conservative death lists.

  • lordshipmayhem

    Canada’s health care system makes Obamacare look positively libertarian in comparison, and yet the Conservatives have been in power for much of the last three decades and done nothing to abrogate the program.

    I wonder if she even knows this?

    She probably thinks Pierre Trudeau is still Canadian Prime Minister.

    Not only are we paying for the abortion mandates, we’ve got IRS sitting on the death panels. Sarah Palin was right, they are going to decide who lives or dies. If they use the same tactics, we are all dead. If the IRS treats health care like they treat the Tea Party, we are all dead.

    all this tells me is that Obamacare is still failing to provide enough money for proper mental health care.

    Every health care system in every first world western country makes Obamacare look positively libertarian. Pretty much the entire rest of western civilization uses a solution that conservatives insist will destroy western civilization.

  • oranje

    It’s been fascinating to see how the IRS story has played out, especially since the IRS pointed out how they were targeting all political groups, not just conservative ones. And that Issa knew that but framed it in a way to score political points.

    There’s no correcting that narrative at this point, is there?
