Pelosivirus

I’m going to just come right out and say it: fuck Nancy Pelosi straight to Hell.

People all over the world are getting sick — many dying — from coronavirus, and now that we’ve got some cases in the US, Capitol Hill is finally getting off its rich, bloated ass and taking a whack at doing something about a response. In classic Pelosi fashion, the House Speaker babbled about making a vaccine “affordable”. AFFORDABLE.

Never mind that many Americans may die simply because they can’t afford to be tested, let alone vaccinated; the typical response from Queen Nancy is some tepid blathering about making a vaccine “affordable”, whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean. If the goddamn vaccine is going to be developed with tax money, then it should be free.

Say it with me, kids: fuck “affordable”; make it FREE.

It isn’t just that Kamala Harris has the gall to straight-up rip off the name “Medicare For All” for her hack-ass healthcare proposal, nor is it just the convoluted, typically technocratic Rube Goldberg nature of her grand plan, nor the fact that it builds on the “success” of Obamacare – a healthcare policy written by the Heritage Foundation. It’s the fact that Kamalacare involves the health insurance industry – the heart of the very problem we’re trying to eliminate.
