Tax Cheat Charles Rangel Accuses Free Market Health Care Advocates of Racism

New York congressman Charles Rangel may be the greatest living advertisement for term limits. Earlier this week, the disgraceful ward boss Rangel called for a crackdown on people who underpaid taxes, even if the mistakes were honest and obviously unintentional. This is the same Charles Rangel who is chairman of the overly-powerful House Ways and Means Committee and who "forgot" to report $600,000 of income.

Rangel is under investigation by the House Ethics committee and some Republicans are calling on him to resign his chairmanship. Good luck. Rangel is one of those arrogant limousine liberals who lives the lifestyle of the rich and famous while attacking upper middle class folk who work their tails off creating jobs and opportunities for themselves and others. "Coincidentally," Rangel has contributed money to three of the five Democrats on the House Ethics committee.

Now, the Harlem sleazeball has hit a new low. FOX News reports that, at a health care forum, Rangel accused those who oppose a government takeover of health care of being racists.

"Some Americans have not gotten over the fact that Obama is president of the United States. They go to sleep wondering, 'How did this happen?' " Rangel (D-Manhattan) said Tuesday.

Speaking at a health-care forum in Washington Heights, Rangel said that when critics complain that Obama is "trying to interfere" with their lives by pushing for health-care reform, "then you know there's just a misunderstanding, a bias, a prejudice, an emotional feeling."
If only John "Lurch" Kerry had been elected President, Americans would love the idea of government having absolute control over their health from womb to tomb. We want totalitarianism, but we demand to be ruled by a white guy! Death panels, rationing of care, diminishing competition, and unaccountable boards taking over 20% of the American economy are great ideas, but we just want a full-blooded Anglo-Saxon to sign the bill instead of a half-Anglo-Saxon like Barry Vladimir Hussein Soetero Obama. Ya got us, Charlie!

This buffoon's act has worn thin. He is a perfect example of what Democrats mean by transparency. Even if everyone knows a Democrats is a crook and a con man it is OK because they are "doing it for the children." Big Media isn't going to make a big deal about Leftist Democrat funny money and double-dealing. They will not eat their own.

If you see Charlie Rangel, give him this message: those of us who oppose nationalized health care love liberty and hate fascism. We don't particularly give a damn about the melanin content in one's skin. But, we do get a little testy about self-righteous windbags who believe they have the power to control our lives. Don't worry, it isn't about you and Barry's race. We find Nancy , Steny, Harry, and the rest of the Democrat Politburo every bit as distasteful.


  1. I gotta agree. Rangel is a disgrace. Issues like this always seem to come back to the media. If they don't report on it, what does it matter? I don't think the MSM is even reporting on the Van Jones fiasco. The media is so corrupt it is significantly damaging thew country.
