The Democrats’ ‘People Will Die!’ Routine is Getting Old

The Democrats’ ‘People Will Die!’ Routine is Getting Old

They used the same tactic to pass Obamacare.

When Democrats were trying to pass Obamacare, the party line on the left was that without it, people would die.

Now that Obamacare is dying and may be repealed, they’ve gone right back to the same talking points.

Just a few days ago, Nancy Pelosi made the claim. Via CBS News:

Nancy Pelosi warns “hundreds of thousands of people will die” if GOP health bill passes

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi warned Monday that the Senate GOP health care bill that could be voted on later this week would be extremely harmful to Americans who rely on their health insurance.

In an interview on “CBS This Morning,” the California Democrat said while the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has not yet released its cost estimate of the measure, she can already predict one major effect.

“We do know that many more people, hundreds of thousands of people, will die if this bill passes,” Pelosi said.

Bernie Sanders, via the Daily Caller:

Sen. Sanders: ‘Thousands Of People Will Die’ From GOP Health Care Bill

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said on MSNBC Friday that “thousands of people will die” if the Senate Republican health care plan is implemented.

Sanders argued to host Andrea Mitchell that the American people and Democratic senators are united in opposition to the bill, which he claims will cause Americans to die.

“Let us be clear, Andrea, and this is not trying to be overly dramatic,” he said. “Thousands of people will die.”

Elizabeth Warren via the Washington Examiner:

Elizabeth Warren on House GOP healthcare plan: ‘People will die’

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren called the House GOP’s plan to repeal and replace parts of the Affordable Care Act a “cruel” way to enrich the wealthy and cut insurance from many Americans.

“Trumpcare isn’t a health care bill. A bill that destroys health care for millions to shovel cash to the rich isn’t a health care bill,” Warren tweeted.

“This is the same cruel Trumpcare bill that @HouseGOP tried to pass weeks ago. Still strips coverage from millions & guts Medicaid,” she added.

Warren added that too many Republicans are treating the bill like it’s a game.

“This isn’t football. It’s not about scoring points. #AHCA will devastate Americans’ healthcare. Families will go bankrupt. People will die,” she tweeted.

This is exactly what they said in 2009. Who can forget Alan Grayson’s despicable rant?

With this in mind, the incredibly talented Remy of Reason has returned with a new instant classic.

Here’s a sample of the lyrics to his new song:

People need kidneys, it’s sad but decreed
yet this Senator’s hoarding one more than she needs
I offer this bill and I hope you’ll vote “aye”
Unless, of course, you just want PEOPLE TO DIE!

Traffic deaths have many crying with fear
Over 30,000 people are dying each year
this modest change I propose must be applied
Unless, of course, you just want PEOPLE TO DIE!

Alcohol deaths are exceeding comparisons
Black people, white people, Native Americans
We need to ban alcohol, it can’t be denied
Unless, of course, you just want PEOPLE TO DIE!

    Peoples die anyway. Why are the Democrats always trying to lay claim to causing peoples to die?

Nancy Pelosi warns “hundreds of thousands of people will die” if GOP health bill passes

There are that many lib’s who can’t open a can of beana?

top avatar reminded me some have been pushing for an opt-out system with organ transplants here in US.
IOW unless you take specific action to opt out you are defaulted to implied consent for donation.

    from Feb 2016
    https://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-02-12/presumed-consent-and-americas-organ-donor-shortage
    Legislators in states like Colorado, Delaware and New York have pushed for presumed consent; in fact, lawmakers in at least seven states have looked at presumed consent bills between 2011 and 2015. All attempts have failed, however, despite the fact that about half of Americans have said they would support such a system, according to the HHS report.

      Oh Great!

      Just what we need. More Democrat/Leftist/Progressives selling body parts illegally for their wealthier enrichment!

      They haven’t gotten enough riches through the likes of Planned Parenthood’s limbs for lira?

      Snark.

Ah Remy, another classic.

    This bit by Remy is hilarious! It should be required viewing by every person in the DC Swamp. (Of course, they likely wouldn’t get it.)

The Republicans are the laziest, most worthless excuse for advocates that exists in the US. It is like you have to hire a law firm and particular lawyers to represent you at an exorbitant rate because they are the only choice in town, and you have to pay them with the expectation that you are going to lose. They could have solicited a wide array of employers, individuals, physicians, insurance cos., etc. to come in and testify about the hardships and poor efficacy of BHO’s ZeroCare and put on a good dog an pony show. But that would require work. They could also have arguments ready to go to make their case, such as presenting the public with the issue how health has declined and how many people have under ZeroCare.

Some interesting reading from Mises for you reading pleasure:

Sen. Guy Knowsbedder, D-California and Sen. Justin Sane, D-Nevada.

Today’s Dimocrat Party summed up in two names. 😀

NO! And you can not have my piano or guitar either.

_Anchovy: Proudly commenting on articles I have not read since 2011.

Millions of Americans have died. Democrats don’t lie when they say this. It’true. Abortion has killed way more Americans than any disease and there is no cure in the foreseeable future. Now tell me Dems really worry about some illegal immigrant staggering across the Rio Grande when so many Americans are dying in our clinics and hospitals everyday.

    “Secular” and quasi religious/moral progressive liberals and, unfortunately, Libertarians, sincerely believe that human evolution begins when a stork delivers a human life. It’s a twilight faith coupled with a Pro-Choice religion that sponsors progressive corruption not limited to science.

Democratic special and peculiar interests successfully conflated insurance and medical care and health care in order to reap progressive profits.

Bernie Sanders has the right idea, Medicare for all! Then hundreds of thousands will really die. It’s the progressives’ wet dream come true. Kill of the weakest among us and only the healthy will survive to breed. The master race will become a reality.

I am on medicare and I would most likely be dead by now but for the supplemental insurance which I pay for to cover all that which medicare does not.

BTW, Medicare still is not free even after paying Medicare taxes most my working life. I still must pay Medicare insurance premiums. The total of the supplemental insurance premiums and the Medicare insurance premiums put me back to the same position I was in paying for medical insurance before I was forced onto Medicare by law solely by virtue of reaching 65 years of age.
