mutterfark: FTA: He said that workers "clearly spoke" last week during the vote in which VW workers rejected the United Auto Workers bid to organize the plant, and he expressed disappointment the UAW is "ignoring their decision" by filing an objection.

So I guess he will acknowledge that a majority of American voters "clearly spoke" with regards to Pres. Obama and the ACA, and urge his fellow Republicans to stop their objections?


That doesn't count because Obama is guilty of the worst crime imaginable: Presidenting while Black.

runwiz: For allwe know, Corker is telling the truth.  VW may have told him exactly what he claims they said.  But VW was smart enough to know that making that statement public would open them to charges that they were trying to illegally influence the vote.  So they tell Corker knowing he wouldn't be able to keep his mouth shut and thus would do VW's dirty work for them.  And they get deniability.


Somehow, I don't buy into the "everyone is lying but the politician" argument.

Republicans went past doubling-down on lies a few decades ago.  They're up to so many multiples-of-down that it has to be expressed in scientific notation.

tbeatty: The chance of VW expanding in Tenn was 0% if they approved UAW. Now it's greater than 0. Detroit is what happens when a union puts itself ahead of their members. It now comes down to: "Do I want a union or do I want a job?" Organized labor did a number of great things including creating legislation at the federal level that oversees all labor conditions. Now, they are just overhead.

Oooo, that's some quality lying.


I dunno, that doesn't seem very quality to me. Maybe if we got a union for the trolls, there would be a minimum standard for trolling.

They "clearly spoke" that they wanted to keep their doctor and their plan.

What you are saying would be worth listening to if it didn't directly contradict what VW has said.

You don't want people to think you're a moron because you're a bad troll, you want people to think you're a moron because you're a good troll.

Mr. Bob Corker (R-eally hates unions): doubles down on his lie, despite VW's calling him out on it

It should be implied that, unless otherwise verified, that the default Southern position on labor unions is to kill them and impoverish any support.  Any conservative principles must go out the window.


Mr. Corker is one reason why this guy should have taken a few more passes at the South:

Then again, 21st century weaponry could make up for it in a subsequent Civil War.

tbeatty: Jorn the Younger: tbeatty: qorkfiend: tbeatty: They "clearly spoke" that they wanted to keep their doctor and their plan.

Maybe they should "clearly speak" to the health insurance companies that cancelled their plans or altered their networks.

Plans were cancelled because ACA made the illegal to continue.

Any health insurance plan made "illegal" by the ACA was so abysmal it shouldn't have really counted as health insurance coverage in the first place.

The goggles, they do nothing.  The stupid, it burns.  Like 50+ married couples with a $5k deductible needed obstetric care with no deductible.  Hello?  McFly? Did anyone think that empty nest 50+ couples aren't going to have kids and can affod a $5k deductible?  That's right: "abysmal".  Faring retard.



Well, let me first thank you for your polite, well reasoned, and coherent response- it is both easy to comprehend, and you elected not to make personal attacks, for which I applaud you.

Unfortunately, as you so kindly pointed out, I am somewhat mentally deficient, so could you possibly provide some additional information about these magically wonderful health insurance plans that became "illegal" due to the ACA?

In an attempt to be clear (though I can only hope to be so cogent and understandable as yourself), let me state that I am specifically looking for evidence of insurance plans which the ACA made illegal, and I'd appreciate citiations of the plans in questions, as well as the relevant sections of the legislation which outlaws them.  This does not include plans that were discontinued by the insurer as not-financially viable, as- at least to my own addled mind - "cause to become not financially viable" is not the same thing as "made illegal"

Hey Pal, Americans have already gotten to experience plenty of "ze Germans" unionization. Hitler was in the UAW if you recall, and we all know how that lead to the death of around 5,000 Jews.

With Russia getting all uppity again you'd do well to keep your opinions to yourself if you expect any of our boys to come and die to protect you... again. You're welcome by the way.
