What, you thought they had their constituents' best interest at heart when they fought this?
 
2014-04-19 03:54:04 PM  
Here in PA the GOP governor pulled the same shiat, then introduced his own plan with more poison pills that Q's pharmacy so he can say "Oh, I was totes going to give you health care but the Dastardly Fartbongo turned down my plan."

Meanwhile the thing basically read "Before getting a jolt of Happy Juice for that tumor the patient shall quest to return the Jeweled Dildo of Hippocrates to the Throne of Double-Billing and get a note from seven Cayman  Island banks vouchsafing patient's moral turpitude"

Obviously there are Kansans who aren't pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps. Hey, this Republican should be celebrating the fact that people are making the best possible individual decision they can make that would never have a wider impact on society as a whole. Right?
 
2014-04-19 04:08:23 PM  
Isn't that exactly what they wanted?

You know what? F*CK KANSAS!

They voted for these right wing jackwagons. They knew what would happen. Let them rot within their borders as the price of their folly.

Republican mantra: Fight everything the other side does to make their efforts fail in certain cases. Once that failure has occurred as predicted in certain limited circumstances caused by Republican efforts, then blame the other side for their effort as the reason for failure, instead of the Republican fight to make that effort fail.

Well they wanted this in enough states to make the economics of the law collapse and then use that to win the senate this year, not to make themselves look like douche-bags who screwed over their own constituency.

Yep.  Install a "Game of Thrones" wall around Kansas and let nature take its course.

This cannot possibly be true. Through the beginning of March, Kansas had 29,000 enrollments through healthcare.gov and 54,000 new enrollments in Medicaid and CHIP. The last report of non-grandfathered plans I saw showed 20,000 were canceled. The following would all have to be true for his claim to be accurate:

- Every enrollment on healthcare.gov in Kansas was a previously insured person,
- Nobody new signed up for Medicaid or CHIP in March,
- Every non-grandfathered plan covered a minimum of three people,
- Everyone previously covered by a non-grandfathered plan did not get new coverage,
- Nobody signed up for health insurance directly from the insurer,
- Nobody under the age of 26 who was uninsured took advantage of the provision letting them stay on a parent's plan, and
- A number of people with ESI and grandfathered plans just dropped coverage of their own volition since 2010.

You have better odds of predicting the Rams' schedule than of all that being true.

And yet these dipshiats will still keep voting Republican.  Doesn't matter if the Republican candidates start driving around and shooting their own voters.

Wouldn't matter. Carefully coordinated voter suppression programs ensure that people most likely to benefit from Obamacare are less likely to vote.

The important part is that you had a good time, right?

Seriously, you have to be an anti-American, want-the-country-to-fail, asinine party-line parrot to actually vote for these scumbags.

Kansas has for decades had a series of really moderate governors of both parties, socially liberal but fiscally conservative, and it has worked out pretty well overall. Until Sam Brownback. Now even some of the most hardcore Republicans I know (religious loons not included) are tearing their hair out over his "leadership." This November is gonna be something.

Here's what I love:
They're actively trying to kill their white supporters who didn't vote for Obama because they're pissed a black guy won.

Dude I've been wringing my brain repeatedly for YEARS for a way to publicly call the fkers out on it and my utter lack of knowlege of the laws pertaining to such just demolishes whatever hope I have for it to occur.

I dunno, we have too many fiery poor people with a history of fighting viciously for unions for them to let things get too extreme here. Healthcare is a nice bone to throw to keep the poors focused on guns and god.

Yelling at them and BLOGGING about it would do no good.

LAWS, laws to throw their traitor asses in prison for...malfeasance or something. Dereliction of duty.

You see what limits I got? I don't know where to even begin.

It helped our modern Republican governor got corrupt before he could do much damage bringing a Democrat right back into office.  But of course Republicans do have the Senate, they're getting close in the House, and who knows what happens in the next gubernatorial election.  Nobody has emerged on either side as being particularly strong yet.
 
2014-04-19 05:43:10 PM  
They voted straight GOP ticket, they knew what they were getting into.

I say, let 'em die uninsured.
