We live in weird times when Lindsey Graham is becoming a voice of reason and even conscience at times in Congress and from the GOP...
 
2017-09-26 11:12:25 AM  
I agree dinky should leave McCain alone, but f*ck you, Blanche
 
2017-09-26 11:20:51 AM  
I don't like his politics, but this was clearly heartfelt and it isn't the first time he's show himself to be
a considerate and thoughtful guy. Unlike Ryan and Yrtle.

I understand the sentiment, but he was just the named co-sponsor of and advocate for a decidedly unreasonable and unconscionable piece of legislation that still isn't technically dead. Let's not go anointing him anything right now.

There are a lot of problems with the ACA. They need to be addressed.

Trying to force it through with a 50% vote was bullshiate from the beginning. Get everone, and I mean EVERYONE on board with a solution. There are reasons our Constitution was written the way it was.

How difficult is this to understand?

They got everyone on board with a solution.  There were months of hearings and debates.  Republicans agreed to the bill and then voted against it.

Yes, there are problems with the ACA that should be addressed.  But that won't happen until either Democrats gain a majority in Congress or Republicans start acting like responsible representatives who prioritize the needs of the nation over the desires of their Party.

He keeps playing with fire. Good Guy Yokel Senator says "we can get something done" simply to make people happy, and then produces the biggest pile of sh*t. "See? Ignore the glue marks and smudges and where I colored outside of the lines."

You realize the ACA was the Conservative Think Tank Heritage Foundation idea. Proposed by Bob Dole as an alternative to Hillary's committee healthcare work.and put into practice by Mitt Romney in Massachusetts.

Abandoned by Republicans when Ibama used it. Then sabotaged by Republicans governors with the removal of important key parts.

And you'll also note that states that entered the exchange did far better than those that refused.

Hey farkstick, you know who put McCain in a position of having to kill a second piece of bullshiat legislation and drawing the ire of Trump and his base?  You did that.  To your best friend.  Who's dying of farking brain cancer.  Own it asshole.

Yeah, Lindsey put his name on the most recent POS bill devoted to killing Americans and calling it healthcare reform. He blew whatever political capital he had on that.

Well that's nice, but EVERYONE has 'earned' the right to disagree with your shiatty bill in this nation by virtue of being born free.

Military cultists are just a tad bit out of control.

Shortly after McCain's death, Graham will introduce the John McCain Freedom Restoration and American Patriot Honor Freedom Faith Flag Act, i.e., Repeal-N-Replace Chapter 137.

But if he didnt do it his corporate overlords would cut off his campaign donations. Please think of Graham's family and their generational monetary comfort.
 
2017-09-26 01:57:29 PM  
Sorry, Lindsay. Trump is a giant petulant raging asshole who gives no shiats about destroying the GOP.

Probably would have helped to think about that before electing the son of a biatch.

Aww, are you sad because your friend is dying of cancer? I wonder how many people would be crying like you  are about their dying loved one if your legislation passed?

Fark your feelings, Lindsey. I'd tell you to EABOD but I don't think you'd take that as an insult.

Very difficult since the constitution wasn't written that way. The Senate writes their own rules.

The only problem I had with it was the mandatory clause. They made it a tax. While still stupid, it's at least legal now.

Otherwise I see a lot of people say it has "problems", but no one ever says what they are.  I guess the talk show host hasn't told them what to think yet.

THIS.  It was mostly a Republican plan.  Because Democrats passed it, with a blah president, Republicans refused to even participate and lied openly about it.  The healthcare system before and after pictures tell a stark story of success, but you would not see that from GOP propaganda.

Republicans will never act responsible so start planning for the alternative.

Our world is upside down. Graham has always been one of those "good Republicans"; the ones that put public image over Victory.
There's still very little integrity in that position but it's still a smidge above the party line.
Our salvation in all of this is that the US is still a democracy (for the love of farking god don't say anything about "constitutional Republic")
Even in those heavily gerrymandered districts, and even with voter suppression, they still have to win a support of some kind of plurality to hold on to power.
There's still hope. Graham might be the ally that Dems never expected or wanted but he could still be an ally.
I'm not all that hopeful, but as long as there is something there's still hope.

ACA doesn't cover hospice care because "someone" redefined a "hospice" as a ""Death Panel".

ACA doesn't allow medicare to negotiate prices.

ACA doesn't cover the 20% medicare deductible forcing seniors to purchase 'gap insurance'.

There was almost no end to efforts to get the GOP to contribute meaningfully to the ACA. This idea that it was "forced through" is revisionist nonsense.  There were nine months of revisions, amendments, hearings and debates including three House committee debates and two Senate committee debates. There were 188 Republican amendments to it. So, no. Not "forced through" and everyone had ample opportunity to be "on board."

It is evidently VERY difficult for the GOP to accept that whether they understand it or not.
There have been too many times over the past couple of years where the GOP has said, "Well, the Constitution may say so, but we are changing the rules.", or "Well, the Constitution may say so, but we going to ignore it because we don't agree with it."

What's really maddening about this is that the GOP and their followers are the first ones to scream and biatch that the Constitution is the "law of the land".  It seems pretty farking obvious to me that they only feel that way when it works in their favor.  When not, they will do everything they can to circumvent it.  And no one seems to be able to stop them from doing it.

Even the most ardent supporters of the ACA recognize that it has significant problems that need to be addressed. However, no Republican replacement bill has addressed any of the real problems - they've all just been partisan grandstanding.

I don't see how you can solve the problems without one or more of (1) more regulation, (2) increased spending or (3) a public option. How can a bipartisan fix be crafted when Republicans have a cult-like aversion to any of those options?

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has one thing to say about Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.): "He can do whatever damn he wants to. He's earned that right."

Except, presumably, kneel during the national anthem.
