Latest Example Of Decline of America Under Conservative Ideology: Long Term Care Program Killed

Obama’s Long Term Care Program has been killed and conservatives are  celebrating this as a victory. It would be one thing if they saw this as too expensive but also saw the demise of such a program as regrettable.  Conservatism has turned into a wacko philosophy which sees any government action as undesirable. These so-called “pro-life” people see it as some bizarre victory for freedom that elderly in this country will have less support. It is their philosophy, not their imaginary “death panels” which is the problem.

This is just one example of the decline of America since conservative ideas have dominated government policy. There was a time when America could do great things. There was a time when, if confronted with the challenge that providing long term care costs more than initially anticipated, Americans would rise to the challenge and solve the problem. When government policy under Republicans has been changed to promote greater transfer of wealth to the ultra-wealthy there just is not enough money to meet our other needs. As long as conservative ideology dominates public policy, the United States will continue to decline.
