The tweet stream being issued while today’s health care “summit” was ongoing produced a lot of fact-based, rational arguments for health care reform from the left. From the right, as if anyone was surprised, racist and sexist messages were issued. I’ll share one of them:
How far have we fallen as a nation that Nancy Pelosi is the most powerful woman in politics in the USA? ConservNewMedia
What does that even mean? The U.S. is somehow scraping the bottom of civilization’s barrel because a Representative from San Francisco is the Speaker of the House?
You know what I noticed on the live feed? A stunning lack of diversity in the GOP. Old, angry white men dominated their side of the room. It’s these cantankerous fools that are doing everything they can to stop any kind of progress into the 21st century. Wake up, Cons. We’re 10 years into this century. You darn near wrecked the U.S. economy and illegally occupied two nations in the first eight years of it, by the way.
Having a half-African American President and a female Speaker of the House is exactly what this country needs! In fact, the U.S. House, and especially the U.S. Senate need far more members who aren’t old, white or male. I have a feeling a lot more would get done for the actual people of this country, instead of the soulless corporations running things now.
