Tales of Republican Death Panels: Why isn't insulin free? Hur dur dur...

Candeath Owens 

One of the more obnoxious and uninformed rightwing social media copy-paste during the past two years has been: If the free Covid vaccine is so good? How come insulin  or some other life saving healthcare) isn't also free??? Checkmate libtards!

One of the joys of being a conservative in America is having No Memory.  One of the joys of being an elected Republican is shamelessly lying and deceiving your voters and having them still support you.

Republicans don't give a fuck about you. They. Don't. Give. A. Fuck.  All they care about is keeping people scared, distracted, angry, upset and punching that (R) in the voting booth.

So the last 2 years of slandering Dr. Fauci and rightwing social media covid vaccine disinformation campaigns, a decade of Republicans voting to Defund Obamacare, and 50 years of underfunding Medicaid and undermining.  But, Republicans propaganda successes mean none of that matters to their rabidly racist and increasingly disconnected from reality base of voters.

Republicans with a minority of 43-57 defeated the Democratic attempt to cap Insulin at $35.  The GOP no doubt will blame Joe Biden and denounce the Democratic Congress for their GOP perfidy as they take credit for just passed IRA despite all the Republican Senators voting No.

So when conservatives ask; how come insulin isn't free? Hur dur dur! Don't expect them to understand its because the people they unthinkingly support and unquestioningly vote for don't give a fuck. Because they don't.  Republicans don't give a shit about you. Your loved ones.  Veterans.  Laws.  The Nation.  All Republicans care about is power.

To wit:

I mean... why not lie?

The only way Republicans can win is that they lie, cheat and steal and if that doesn't work they will fucking kill you!

More & more unhinged. Look at their CPAC confab; violence, terrorism, lies, performance outrage. When they don't win enough in 22 to secure their planned theft of 24, violence is going to be the Republican plan.
