America can’t survive on GOP business model

To the Editor:

I wonder how many people truly understand how flawed is the GOP business model. This is the one fabricated over 20 or 30 years by Mitch McConnell, Karl Rove, Tom Delay, Murray Chotliner (Nixon era), and more recently, Jim DeMint and his Heritage Foundation and its new Heritage Action advocacy group which. These are behind the new production of defund Obamacare.

The NRA is a GOP partner, as are the social conservatives who line up to get candidates to sign on starting with the Iowa caucuses. Let’s not forget the “no new taxes” guy.

Together, these participants and their acolytes make up the GOP coalition.  They are overwhelmingly single-issue constituents and, in general, not in the more highly-educated ranks in our society. They don’t go too far off the farm and are the reliable soldiers for the GOP.

They don’t look for fact-based problem solving rather they see the world through their prejudices — the ones built up and stimulated by the GOP’s spokesmen.

There are more than 400 components in the Affordable Care Act, yet how many Republicans speak of the Care Act as an evil invention that in no way will benefit any Republican. These never lose their jobs, get cancer, go bankrupt, have young adult children, have a pre-existing condition or bear an autistic child.

These are the clues that the GOP is running on propaganda.

It’s not cute. It’s not politics as usual; it’s dangerous and leaves a lot of destruction in its path. The GOP leadership fosters this behavior and depends on it is incompetent.
