Jim DeMint appeared to channel the character Ra’s al Ghul from Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy when he suggested that Obamacare must be stopped at any cost, even if that means destroying the United States Of America via a total government shut down.
Do you think we’re kidding?
Ra’s al Ghul,
“We are back to finish the job. And this time no misguided idealists will get in the way. Like your father, you lack the courage to do all that is necessary. If someone stands in the way of true justice… you simply walk up behind them and stab them in the heart.”
“My fight, however, lies with the rest of Gotham. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a city to destroy.”
After taking 40 pointless votes, and wasting around 60 million taxpayer dollars to repeal Obamacare and increase death and suffering and misery for the American people who need access to affordable healthcare, the current US Congress features a dismal eight percent approval rating.
But Tea Partier Jim DeMint doesn’t think they’ve gone far enough.
“The key to saving our country, to turning things around and really putting the government on the right track, is getting people informed, engaged all over the country. If Americans decide that they want to stop this unfair and unaffordable bill called Obamacare, they can do it, but the congressmen and senators themselves will not do it. They’ll not take that kind of risk unless the American people rise up and effectively tell them that’s what they want to do,” DeMint said.
“Since when do Americans not fight for what is right because they’re afraid they might lose? We all know this is a terrible bill, and the more we learn about it the more we understand it’s going to hurt people, it’s going to hurt our country. This may be our last chance to stop it, and the only way to stop it when Republicans control only the House is to fund the government but not to include any funding for Obamacare.
Now if the president decides he’s not going to accept government funding and allows the government to shut down, then it’s going to become apparent that he’s letting the government shut down because he wants to save this failed bill.”
