Good Grief: Woman Will Drive To Mexico To Get Birth Control If GOP Health Bill Passes

 

Possibly the dumbest, and most partisan (other than the normal wackadoodle Russia garbage), thing you’ll read all day, but, then, it’s still early, and CNN has plenty of time (via Twitchy)

‘Trumpcare’ would send her to Mexico for birth control

All Ariana and Kevin Gonzalez want is birth control.

As far as health care needs go, that’s pretty simple.

But the California couple says that if the Republican alternative to Obamacare becomes law, they’ll be driving over the border to Mexico to get it

It’s not that the Gonzalezes don’t have insurance; they have very good insurance through Ariana’s job as a high school teacher.

The problem is that “Trumpcare,” as Ariana calls it, would probably run her health clinic out of town. It’s Planned Parenthood, which the Republican health care proposal defunds because it performs abortions.

The claim here is that this is a tiny, very spread out community in southeastern California, El Centro, so it can take a month to get a regular appointment with a doctor and take all day waiting, but, she can get an appointment with the baby butchers at Planned Parenthood the next day and only wait 30 minutes for her appointment (as long as she isn’t interested in a mammogram, or other regular doctor services).

Ariana has a message for senators as they contemplate whether to pass the law, also known as the American Health Care Act.

“If (Planned Parenthood’s) doors are shut, you’ll be driving your own constituents to an entirely different country in search of health care, and that’s not America,” she said. “I don’t think that’s who we are as a country.”

Really? Planned Parenthood makes more than enough money to survive on its own. Heck, they had $30 million to toss around for the 2016 election cycle (didn’t do them much good). They make more than enough money to stay open. Perhaps all their big moneyed Democrat supporters, like Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, etc, along with all the celebrities, can donate.

Democrats aren’t the smartest fish in the tank, are they? There are actually 7 drug stores in her town of El Centro, California. And a Walmart. And a Walmart further down the road on the short ride to Mexicali, Mexico.

Money quote

She thinks about a photo that made the rounds on social media in March. It showed Vice President Mike Pence and a group of congressmen discussing the passage of the GOP plan, called the American Health Care Act.

“I see a bunch of men sitting around a table, discussing what I should be allowed to do with my body,” she said. “My husband and I can decide what’s best for us.”

Except, Obamacare dictates what she can do with her body, just like it does for everyone else. It decides what’s best for her, her husband, and everyone else. She and her husband want to decide what everyone else is forced to pay for.

    The voters need to get used to the fact that, although trump doesn’t keep his word, the ruling GOP does. Just as they have been saying for 40 years they are primed to recreate America as a free market utopia. Yes, there will be massive disruptions, but their hypothesis is that in a decade or so, America and especially Americans, will be more self sufficient, better and stronger.

    Their goal is not to slow the growth of Medicaid and Medicare. Their goal is to eventually eliminate these expensive gov’t programs that are costing hard working taxpayers billions. Although trump promised repeatedly not to cut Medicaid or Medicare; in fact he supported more spending in the programs; and he also promised that every American would have better and less expensive healthcare… but he lied – he will sign whatever bill the GOP sends him.

    The Senate bill will increase premiums and deductibles, eliminate insurance for 15 million Americans next year alone, but will cut taxes to the wealthy almost $1 trillion. The cuts to Medicaid alone will impact rural hospitals and clinics, nursing homes (60% of nursing home residents rely on Medicaid). But this is what the voters wanted and why they have consistently supported the GOP.

    And Panned Plarenthood — a Picoism, not a typo — donated $734,000 to the Democrat in the Georgia special election, the results of which having me laugh my Ossoff.

    Most of the federal money comes from reimbursement for services, primarily through Medicaid. If the federal government cuts off PP from receiving federal dollars through fees for services, it will devolve into solely an abortion provider.

    Panned Plarenthood does provide some useful services, but its position as the largest abortion provider in the United States makes those useful services akin to noting that Benito Mussolini got the trains to run on time.
