Perry Is 'Dr. Death'

RECEIVED Thu., April 22, 2010

Dear Editor,
    Five hundred to 1,000 Texas children and 2,000 to 3,000 Texas adults die every year due to not having access to health care. These are Texans, not “them eelegals” as Sarah “The Quitter Twit” Palin suggests. Thanks to the nine semiwise folks in black robes in D.C., “them eelegals” get free health care at Texans’ expense. And if they do get turned away for some reason, they go back to Mexico for free health care. And what has our “Dr. Death” Perry done to solve the problem? First, in order for Bush to be able to make a $2 billion tax cut to show he was a “compassionate conservative” presidential candidate (which turned out to be a colossal lie – the only thing Bush was conservative with was his compassion for the laws and freedoms for all Americans), then-Lt. Gov. Perry engineered having 147,000 children thrown off the Children’s Health Improvement Program rolls and 30,000 pregnant women dropped from the prenatal health care rolls. Perry’s actions resulted in some kids dying and some babies being stillborn. And the 10-year record for Gov. “Dr. Death” Perry: 25,000 to 40,000 Texans, not “them eelegals,” have died due to no health care. Health care insurance premiums are up 91.6% in Texas, and Perry is enthusiastically encouraging Attorney General Abbott to spend spare tax dollars to oppose the new federal universal health care program. Local Texan taxpayers will be one of the beneficiaries of the new health care program, as a huge portion of the 6.1 million Texans uninsured will be able to get health care subsidized by the feds, thus saving the local taxpayers a fortune in not having to fund huge emergency room deficits at the local county hospital for the present free health care. “Dr. Death” Perry, the Texas Funeral Directors Association thanks you.
