Life Liberty And The Pursuit Of Happiness - Republicans Say Sorry Charlie

If they take away health insurance from millions, and make it worse for millions more, Republicans are urinating on the Declaration of Independence, as if they cared.

Remember this from grade school?

"We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness; ..."

GOP Version:

You have a right to life (unless you get sick and can't pay for your treatment of course)

You have a right to liberty (unless the only way you can get healthcare is working some job you hate)

You can't pursue happiness if you are sick, and they take everything you worked for your whole life to pay the bills. Much less dead because you couldn't afford proper treatment.

Time we talked about this while the Senate is secretly plotting to screw over millions of poor people, to benefit the filthy rich.

It't like America is so broke, or stupid that we can't cover every citizen like EVERY OTHER advanced nation does.

1. Actually, I remember it differently:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness..."

Where did you get your text? It's jarringly inaccurate.

2. Right?

That's the one I remember. The OP's sounds strange and alien.

3. It's almost as if someone used an online translator.
