Then go with those ten reasons and vote no on the farking thing, dipshiat.

WTFDYW: Then go with those ten reasons and vote no on the farking thing, dipshiat.


He pretty much literally says those 10 reasons are all outweighed by the need to nullify everything the black guy did.

It goes without saying that this is crazy person thinking.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said Wednesday he could give "10 reasons why this bill shouldn't be considered," referring to the Senate's final attempt to repeal Obamacare this year-but he's still dead-set on supporting it.

Yes and the real reason is in the form of a huge check from donors.

I would love to know how much money politicians on either side personally get from donors, and how it's legal.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that Soviets were shocked at how cheap Americans were and how easily they were flipped. So Grassley probably flipped for ... $500.00.

I swear, it's like watching Lobo bring in a schoolteacher. At the end of the day, worlds are aflame, millions are dead, and he still kills the goddamned schoolteacher because he mockingly stuck to the letter and stomped on the spirit.

You think just "Stigginit" is enough for these people now? They've adopted straight up Nazis into the fold, they want the blood of anyone to the left of Strom Thurmond to run in the streets and to fill up the Trump Ovens will miscegenators.

An article in which Republicans prove, "Why no, we didn't actually have a better idea."

Just in case someone had any sort of doubt

How about that one guy who ran for president and has spent the last eight months running this country into the ground because his feelings were hurt at a comedy show.

Say what? No, surely it won't upend part of the economy. I've been assured many times right here on Fark that upending part of the economy is a major reason why we can't have some for of universal healthcare.

Who do you think makes the laws?

Now theoretically you could have the states vote on a constitutional convention to rein in corporate money in politics, but if anything the state legislatures are even deeper in the pockets of their big businesses than the federal government.

Yeah, I wish I had the balls to post or write to the Republicans that will be joining a very exclusive club should they pass this festering boil.  They will rank right up there with Pol Pot, Stalin, and many other dictators that went out of their way to speed the deaths of certain members of their populace.

Chuck "snek in the" Grassly is such a Cuck.
 
2017-09-20 08:25:53 PM  
The fascinating part about all of this is how they're all just straight up lying about what's in the bill now because they know that the "liberal media" will never ever dare to call them on it.

It's amazing.
 
2017-09-20 08:26:01 PM  
7 years to come up with a plan for providing hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts for the rich, and this is the best the GOP can come up with?
 
2017-09-20 08:26:38 PM  
Chuck Grasely should be staked down spread eagle while an overly-enthusastic six year old hopped up on five bags of cotton candy repeatedly rams a Power Wheels into his balls.

Democrats will find their balls one of these days.

Probably.
 
2017-09-20 08:28:10 PM  
Republicans are monsters. There's no other word for it. They're willing to sentence thousands, if not millions, of people to slow, agonizing deaths, just so their rich donors (who already have more money than they could possibly spend in several lifetimes) can have MORE money.

Open secrets has those numbers,  but they can be hard to dig through.

Near as I can tell,  Grassley got six figures from the healthcare / insurance industries.

AsparagusFTW: Does anyone believe that politicians still work for them?


One of the reasons Grassley said he supports repeal is because his voters expect it. So, in that sense, he is in fact working for his voters. That his voters are fools of the highest caliber is a separate issue.
 
2017-09-20 08:51:20 PM  
"You know, I could maybe give you 10 reasons why this bill shouldn't be considered," Grassley told Iowa reporters on a call, according to the Des Moines Register. "But Republicans campaigns on this so often that you have a responsibility to carry out what you said in the campaign."

I guess we're lucky they weren't promising human sacrifices to Mammon. I really don't know what the fark to say anymore. How can anyone in their right mind be okay with this? That people aren't demanding these assholes resign immediately is a sign our experiment in democracy is coming to an end.

Campaign donations and reported gifts.  If gifts, then no quid pro quo.  Superpacs can  give money anonymously thanks to "Hillary did stuff movie" aka Citizens United decision.  In this case, members of congress and especially Trumps cabinet will directly benefit from elimination of the ACA capital gains taxes.  It has nothing to do with campaign promises which politicians often forget.

I weep for those Americans who will lose their health care. Meanwhile under the 'dreadful' ( to GOP)  Canadian system, I am going for an MRI on my knee, at no out of pocket expense. Unless you count the bus fare to get to the hospital. Wait time for this non-emergency, less than 2 weeks.

These inhuman farks cannot die off fast enough.  The GOP needs to made as commonly distasteful a brand as the KKK, even though it's actually far, far worse in the real damage it does to the country.  If you join the GOP you are a disgusting human being.  It's no longer a legitimate political party.  They have no real ideology which makes them so.  They just pretend.  It'll all talk and pure bullshiat.  Their only real actions of obstruction and destruction aren't a political position in and of itself.   it's now nothing more than a club for the worst of humanity to get together and jerk each other off to grand plans of making everyone as miserable as they are.

And when you get mad about it, their voters say YOURE the one who is just mad because Team Red is trying to fix Team Blue's mistake. And then they say you don't need to be part of the conversation because you just scream with apoplectic rage at their protection and venality.
