Pure propaganda. They've almost never voted to repeal Obamacare. Well, not more than a few times anyay. Certainly nowhere near fifty.

Obamacare will soon reach it's ACORN stage, where it's dead but still the boogeyman behind every Republican woe.

Pure propaganda. They've almost never voted to repeal Obamacare. Well, not more than a few times anyay. Certainly nowhere near fifty.


They've voted six times to repeal, and another 45 or so to make changes to a bill that was passed by both houses, signed into law by the President, and has passed Constitutional muster before SCOTUS.  Even if all they're doing is voting to change the name to "Super-Poopycare", it's a waste of time and money that they should be spending actually doing something useful.

It reprises a controversial plan to shift future retirees away from traditional Medicare and toward a subsidy-based health insurance option on the open market.

So not only are they trying to repeal the ACA they want to dismantle Medicare. Nice.


"The sooner we tackle these fiscal problems, the better off everybody is going to be, the faster the economy grows, and the more we can guarantee that the next generation inherits a debt-free future," said Ryan.

I love how the GOP is always so concerned with "future generations" when it comes to the debt. They don't care that future generations inherit a farked up planet because of global warming and pollution, but ZOMG DEBT!!
 
2014-04-10 08:01:02 PM
And I'm sure Obama will accidentally sign that into law THIS TIME.

It's only a theory.  Teach the controversy.  Don't listen to the New World Order.

Changing all my 'CLIMATE CHANGE' smog clouds in my political cartoons to 'DEBT'. I would seem to get more Republican subscribers that way.

Thanks GOP for going on record to get rid of Medicare on a totally pointless vote!!

Hey baby wanna repeal Obamacare?
No.
How bout now?
No.
C'mon mama, let's repeal Obamacare.
No.
Aww, just the tip of Obamacare?
No.
That's fine, tell you what, just sign this paper repealing Obamacare and I'll never ask you again.
No!
Easy, toots! Don't get mad.  Here let me rub your back while you repeal Obamacare.
No!
Alright alright...I'll make it up to you.  Let me buy you dinner, and repeal Obamacare.


...etc forever...
 
2014-04-10 08:07:09 PM
Have no doubts that this is a template for any future GOP Congress. They'll kill the ACA and "reform" Medicare as soon as they get half a chance.
 
2014-04-10 08:08:21 PM
Okay its time for the senate to send an offical iquiry to the House asking the GOP leadership  What the fark is their malfunction.

Mostly no one cares because it doesn't change the status quo in DC. Even with the GOP controlling the Senate and House they can't do jack sh*t.

Or at least that's what most think, even though having Senators elected for 6 years is a really ugly thing.

You also have to consider media manipulation around the subject of debt and Obamacare and the fact that it's easier to criticize a sitting president than the legislature.

This country is slowly going down the sh*tter and nothing will change about that until at least 2020.
 
2014-04-10 08:34:35 PM
Probably hoping the President will try to "compromise" and end up giving them most of what they want anyway.

I think someone in a lobbying group should convince some House Republicans to put forth that repeal to the Emergency Treatment Act (or whatever it's called) that the Georgia governor wants so badly.

Let the Republicans defend themselves on a national stage as to why they want to be able to turn people away from the emergency room.

Dear House Republicans,
In my lifetime, you haven't worried about the debt or deficit when anybody with an (R) political affiliation was in the White House.
But if you're really concerned now, you have a clear choice that won't kill the economy, and, as a bonus, won't kill your fellow citizens, which your current agenda seems to have as a goal.

Hint: It's the one thing you say you won't do.

I'm particularly fond of the fact that they don't give a rat's ass about the debt when they're the ones running it up.

Oops, it's been covered.

So when TFA says "politically imposing", do they mean it's an imposition, or do they mean formidable?

/maybe I finish reading TFA for some context...but I get the feeling it's just more of the same

I didn't support the Ryan budget plan, but that's because it doesn't do the budget cuts up front. It was another 10 year plan, which as we have seen from both parties doesn't really work.  From now on, we need plans that cover smaller amounts of time- I would prefer 2 years personally, and all cuts are done upfront.

As for Obamacare, I'm not concerned.  It will be repealed in part or totally repealed, assuming that the supreme court doesn't pull a surprise and declare the whole thing unconstitutional.  And before the libtrolls start going apeshiat, remember that once its in front of the court, its anyone's guess as to what they are going to do.  I'm not predicting they are going to rule ACA in its entirety unconstitutional, just that it is a possible outcome of the case before the court.  And the court challenges aren't over, either.  Prepare for another round the moment the individual mandates go into effect because you can't argue over the constitutionality of a tax until it has been implemented.

In the end I don't think it will matter anyways.  I give us another 10-15 years before the divisions become so wide that compromise in any form is impossible and a 2nd civil war breaks out, and this time it will make all the previous conflicts look pale in comparison.

It's so adorable that you think that the current Republican party will still have any power in 10-15 years.  What is actually going to happen is that they will either be replaced by another party, or the current batch of people who control the party will be ousted by younger, more moderate people.  What you are looking at right now is the death throes of ultra-conservatism in the United States.

It won't matter. They won't talk about it, they'll just do it, and once it's done they'll probably be able to keep it from being undone.

After all, a Civil War in which a bunch of fanatical right-wingers tried to fight the US Government over an ideological divide went so well for them last time! Now that technology has advanced so much farther, I'm sure the racist shiatheads will win THIS time!

I'm not sure what's going to happen, or what the final cause will be.  I think that in 10-15 years we will have a deadlock and constitutional crisis that will be the spark of a 2nd civil war.   This time its not going to be over succession from the union, it will be about what type of society we want and which ideology will control the union.  It doesn't matter what parties exist 10-15 years from now.  We can avoid it.  The thing is I don't think either side wants to avoid it.

You laugh but dysfunctional government isn't leaving. They'll likely have the Senate after these midterms. Prepare for the derp.
