Oh those feckless Republicans
During his conversation with Cavuto, Pawlenty made it clear that he thinks the American "health care system is broken." He didn't say why he came to that radical conclusion, opining merely that health care is too expensive, and that Republicans and Democrats should work together to fix it.
No doubt there are some reforms that Congress can make affecting the cost of health care in America, like tort reform and competitive bidding across state lines. But the American health care system, as such, is the best in the world, and it is very far from broken.
I wonder when Republicans like Pawlenty are going to acquire sufficient discernment to realize that their conclusions are more in the nature of left-wing talking points than thoughtful social analysis. Adopting left-wing Democrat verbiage leads inevitably to being co-opted by left-wing Democrat policies.
The dictionary defines feckless as "incompetent, useless, spineless, feeble, weak and ineffective" - and that just about sums up the gutless Republican establishment's "let's all join hands and work together" attitude toward the Democrat tyrants in government.
Most of the American people don't want to "work together" with so-called progressives, whose real agenda is to deconstruct America and reconstruct it according to the dictates of cultural Marxism. They want the crypto-Marxists sidelined in America, and it is time that feckless Republicans shook off their bi-partisan stupor and came to that realization.
