Colin Powell Just The Godless Kenyan Muslin Nazi Marxist Socialist General You Always Thought He Was
As if there were any question that Colin Powell was a RINO, which is to say, a liberal, which is to say a Godless Communist who should be deported, the former Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spoke last week in favor of universal healthcare at a Seattle meeting of fellow prostate cancer survivors:
I am not an expert in health care, or Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, or however you choose to describe it, but I do know this: I have benefited from that kind of universal health care in my 55 years of public life. And I don't see why we can't do what Europe is doing, what Canada is doing, what Korea is doing, what all these other places are doing.
We suppose that next he'll be telling women not to shave their legs and drinking little dinky cups of strong coffee while reciting poetry and being annexed by Angela Merkel!
Powell also told the story of his wife, Alma, who suffered from three aneurysms and an arterial blockage. Thanks to his excellent military benefits, she got quick, effective treatment and never had to worry about how to pay for it. He contrasted her treatment to the experience of a woman named Anne who sells him firewood, and whose insurance wouldn't cover the MRIs she needed before a surgical procedure. Powell gave her the money and her treatment was successful. Now, you would think this proves that nobody needs universal coverage because they might know a famous retired general, but no, Powell drew a completely insane conclusion from these experiences:
“After these two events, of Alma and Anne, I’ve been thinking, why is it like this?” Powell said. “Every country I’ve visited, every developed country, they have universal health care. They don’t understand why the United States of America, which uses more health care than just about anybody else, still (has) 40 million people not properly insured.”
“I think universal health care is one of the things we should really be focused on, and I hope that will happen,” Powell said. “Whether it’s Obamacare, or son of Obamacare, I don’t care. As long as we get it done.”
So there you have it: Colin Powell, just another 47% Taker. You knew it all along, didn't you?
Also, we would totally see a movie called "Son of Obamacare."
