CPennypacker: The only people who vote republican are rich and/or stupid
meat0918: CPennypacker: The only people who vote republican are rich and/or stupidEven the rich are filing into the stupid column.Seriously, history isn't that far from repeating itself. Crappy reality TV and Food Stamps will only keep the population complacent for so long (especially when your party is trying to gut the food stamp program).
Zmog: The issue is not "cut", numbnuts. It's telling seniors, who no private insurer want to cover at a resonable sum, "Here's a voucher worth a reasonable sum. Go buy cover."
GBmanNC: Yeah criticize Obama for saving taxpayer money and keeping health care benefits the same. This talking point will work better than the last one! I just know it!
Cinaed: Wait. If the same reimbursement reduction is in Ryan's plan, how is this somehow 'bad'?
tnpir: Reince Priebus might be the male version of Sarah Palin. He's at LEAST as stupid.

Even if they just invest, the companies they invest in need to sell to someone.

Bloody William: Do you want to know what class warfare is? Class warfare is Contra.You have one group of people who know the Konami code. They use it at the beginning of the game to get 30 lives. They often beat the game because they have so many chances to keep going. If they fail a few times, they have plenty of resources to keep fighting the boss and reach the next level.You have another group of people who don't have the Konami code. Or, worse yet, they get punished for entering the Konami code. They get 3 lives and can't continue. If they screw up a few times, they're done. They can't go back. They can't keep going. Very good or lucky players can beat the game with those 3 lives, but the vast majority of both the people in this group and the people in the group who get 30 lives can't. They are the exception.The people in the former group say that Contra is easy because they can get far and often beat the game, and they point at the few people in the latter group who manage to do it too as proof. That doesn't make Contra actually easy. it only means that one group of people get a great opportunity and tons of extra lives, and a few members of the other group of people are skilled and lucky enough to get as far.
NeverDrunk23: The gop's plan is just: 'Democrats aren't perfect so vote for us because shut up.'
GentDirkly: Correct me if I'm wrong on any of this:In 2010, Democrats change Medicare law so that "Medicare Advantage" plans get the same reimbursement as the government gives itself. It was thought that "Medicare Advantage" or "Medicare Part C" was going to reduce costs on its own, "power of the free market" and all that, but it didn't, and the plug was pulled. If Republicans were in power in 2010 they too would have pulled the plug.Now, in 2012, Paul Ryan and Co. are basically turning to the "power of the free market" again, after it was already proven to not lower costs before.Am I missing something?
randomjsa: More like "Obama actually did do something that liberals have screamed Republicans would do for decades now... All to cover his own ass so his ridiculous health care bill would seem to cost a lot less than it actually will."And comically, when Republicans talk about Medicare reform they don't ever actually talk about doing it for purely selfish rear end covering reasons. It would be like if Bush took money out of Medicare so he could cover up the cost of the Iraq war. I'm just trying to imagine the liberal raging fit if he'd tried that.
Gyrfalcon: Yeah, right. They just talk about it for money-covering reasons that will benefit them and their cronies. Totally not the same thing.You've made your obligatory appearance, you can go back to your hole and nibble your foreskin.
