I'm just going to cherry pick this and agree.

Part of me wants to believe, in history, revolutions started and civil wars erupted not over valiant ideologies or heroic principles, but because one side was being stupid and needed to be purged out of irritation and boredom.

People look around the room, exhausted, and finally agree, "we'll never get anything done as long as Bill keeps smearing his poo-paste all over the room".

So, reluctantly, they kill Bill.

They will continue to push repeal or defunding of the healthcare law until the total number of votes reaches potato.

Nadie_AZ: How does this benefit the country?


Tsk. How quickly they forget. This poor, soiled pile of feathers has nothing to do with anything as trivial as the benefit of our country. It concerns something far more vital- the continued viabiility of the political futures of certain elected representatives. Granted, this particular tactic is almost guaranteed to blow up in their faces and sabotage the polticial futures they apparently believe they are salvaging, but long-term planning, foresight, and awareness of probable outcomes are not considered virtues among the political elites in question.

Always remember that they are better than you. They are the Chosen, the ordained leaders of the great white rennaissance which will sweep away all the polluting influences of outside cultures, foreign ideas, and rational thought. Anything they choose to do in our names must be in our best interests, because it furthers their political careers- and thereby advances the Glorious Cause.

Aristocles: The people hate Obamacare


"The people" elected the president who gave us Obamacare TWICE. How can you call yourself an American while supporting a party that is so anti-constitution that they try to pass legislation not by majority vote, but by threatening to destroy our economy if the other side doesn't give them what they want? How can you possibly defend this tactic? This is America. If you want something changed, get enough people voted into office to change it. Otherwise STFU and stop threatening my financial well-being over a fight you have no chance of winning.

If this is what Americans want, why did they re-elect the man who gave us Obamacare? Why is the GOP so unpopular and powerless that they can't overturn it democratically?

At a post-vote rally by House Republicans, Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, called the measure's approval "a victory today for the American people"

I'm at work and I started laughing out loud. This is pathetic, same as it always is. They're going to hold everyone hostage? Okay, we'll shut down then.

I get that the first season of Twin Peaks is some of the greatest TV ever produced but seriously take your blinders off and look at the second season (when Lynch left production) and quit obsessing over something the networks drove into the ground.

How can you strip out that which doesn't exist?

As far as the mandate goes, that is something that needs to be in there if we're going to do away with denying people because of pre-existing conditions. Don't like it? Deal with it, or push for single-payer health care.

Serious question :

Why doesn't the Senate just bring the bill up for vote? The Dems have the majority.  Is there something i'm missing?
 
2013-09-20 04:00:45 PM
FTFA"An earlier plan by Boehner and other GOP leaders was designed to send a straightforward bill to keep the government running through Dec. 15, but ran into too much opposition from tea party members who demanded a showdown over the Affordable Care Act, the official name of what Republicans have branded Obamacare.

But of course...

And the real kicker is that none of them will pay for this BS in the next election. The Congressional districts are so gerrymandered these clowns may lose of the overall House vote by double what they did last election and they could still pick up seats

Oh, I guess b/c then it's the Dems who shut down government?
