If Ryan's MIL was in England, she wouldn't be getting the drug.
If Ryan's MIL had balls, she'd be his FIL.

Can we stop with the hypotheticals now?
 
2010-03-21 02:43:11 PM
...and after 20 minutes of debate, nothing has changed. Thanks for wasting everyone's time, Ryan!

TOTALITARIANISM is not SOCIALISM, douche.

The Democrats in D.C. are trying to start another war of Northern aggression.

Wow. He got out the box swinging: "Socialism" and "totalitarian" within the first 10 words.

How is government regulation socialism?
The public option is dead.
You might as well say the FDA is running a socialist empire over your food.
 
2010-03-21 02:44:56 PM
totalitarian tactics? Ooooookay.
 
2010-03-21 02:45:03 PM
Devin Nunes is a moron.

Omg.

"Totalitarian" DRINK

"1/6 of our economy" DRINK!

captain_heroic44: fnu: Wait, you have to pay to get a job? You can't afford a job because of a preexisting condition?

Disabled people, and people with pre-existing conditions, can often only get health care through programs like Medicare. By working even a minimum wage job, they lose their eligibility for government insurance. Even if they can get a job that pays well, because they have pre-existing conditions, they can't get private insurance. Hence, people with disabilities or pre-existing conditions truly "cannot afford to work."


so could the government just change their rules and allow someone to keep their Medicare even when they have a part-time job?

I just threw my chap-stick at the tv when he mentioned socialism, and it went over, bounced off the wall, then came out under the tv onto the floor...

I now feel accomplished.

Nunes is such a turd.
 
2010-03-21 02:45:30 PM
From the TMP wire linked earlier in the thread: (new window) Three unidentified Republican lawmakers standing on the Capitol balcony above a crowd of protesters unfurled the Gadsden flag -- the yellow flag with a coiled snake and the words "Don't tread on me" -- to cheers from the crowd. Many protesters are also carrying the Gadsden flag.

Sigh. Is there such a thing as a professional demeanor for an elected official? I know after a year of talking about this, the floor debate isn't going to change anyone's mind, but I like to hope that the people involved will appear to keep an open mind about the process until they vote.
 
2010-03-21 02:45:34 PM
Hm... Is the overriding theme here that representative voting is a totalitarian tactic?
 
2010-03-21 02:45:41 PM
Hey, why isn't that guy voting?
 
2010-03-21 02:45:48 PM
Jesus democracy is boring compared to totalitarianism.
 
2010-03-21 02:46:02 PM
Just heard Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) say something along the lines of "This is socialism, and they are using totalitarian tactics to pass it."

/Cracks up laughing

Heroic: Thanks, that makes sense to me. Tragic and asinine, but it makes sense. I didn't get that angle before.

Reconciliation is not unprecedented you cock
 
2010-03-21 02:47:19 PM
Yes, reconciliation is completely unprecedented for a bill of this size, and was in no way used to pass the Bush tax cuts.

"this is unprecedented, dropping the threshhold down from 60 votes to 51"

Yeah, no bill has ever been passed with 51 votes before.
