Psychotic – a person suffering from any form of psychosis
Psychosis – A mental state caused by psychiatric or organic illness, characterized by a loss of contact with reality and an inability to think rationally. A psychotic person often behaves inappropriately and is incapable of normal social functioning.
In yet another evidence that frequent botox treatments can cause brain damage, Psycho (oops – I mean Speaker) of the House, Nancy Pelosi, went on a “blame game” tangent when she accused health insurance companies of being “villains” in the healthcare debate taking place on Capitol Hill.
“They are the villains in this,” Pelosi said of private insurers. “They have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening. And the public has to know that. They can disguise their arguments any way they want, but the fact is that they don’t want the competition.”
Talk about losing contact with reality and being incapable of normal social functioning. Let’s take a look at her accusations in an upclose and personal way.
First, she calls them “villains.” The dictionary defines a villain as a criminal or evil person. The last time I checked, providing insurance wasn’t a criminal activity, although the same can’t be said for Nancy’s “most ethical Congress in history.”
For instance, a REAL villain would be someone like John Murtha of Pennsylvania, who is suspected of under-the-table dealings with organizations who have benefited from Murtha’s earmarks addiction. Or take Pelosi herself, who has made criminal accusations against the Central Intellegence Agency without proof. For some strange reason, neither Murtha or Pelosi have been investigated. I wonder why….
Next, she says they are a “part of the problem in every way.” Apparently, in her world, objecting to a government takeover of approximately 16% of the nation’s economy makes you a “problem.” And here I thought that the right to petition your government was one of our Constitutional privileges. I guess our Founding Fathers were just a bunch of trouble makers.
Lastly, she states that insurance companies are doing “everything in their power to stop a public option from happening” and are doing so because they “don’t want the competition.” She’s right about this one, but for the wrong reasons.
A public option would create an unfair competitive advantage favoring the government. If you get to invent the game, make the rules for the game, interpret the rules of the game and enforce the rules of the game, you have a significant advantage over anyone else who plays.
But even this is irrelevant, because the issue isn’t really about competition – fair or unfair. According to Rep. Barney Frank of Mass., a public option is meant to lay the groundwork for a single-payer system, which means a total government takeover of the nation’s healthcare system – the end result being that private insurance would be eliminated.
No wonder they might have a problem with this idea – those greedy villains.
Nancy Pelosi has made creating a group of “bad guys” to deflect criticism from her a way of life.
Imaginary bad guys? Sounds psychotic to me.
