A last-ditch effort to derail Obamacare started in a barn here Monday night — because it’s not going to start in Washington, advocates told a packed crowd at the opening night of Heritage Action’s August defunding tour.

Heritage Action, trying to fuel an effort to defund the president’s health care law on the cusp of its launch, offered a bleak assessment of a Republican Party that’s held 40 anti-Obamacare votes: They don’t have the guts to do everything necessary to stop the law, and that’s where the Heritage faithful step in.

I thought I read somewhere that just one vote was like, 30 million dollars or something.

The fukers have absolutely no problem spending tax payer money. NONE.

We should be absolutely clear about that at the outset.

That is the brilliant part. They couldn't be bothered to read it. Unless we are counting those snippets that say, Hey corporations that have previously been considered tax exempt? Not any more. Then they read. Spin. Spend. They forced the public option off the table. Talk about how the US is in debt. But, found no problem spending tax payer money on a shit plane and an unnecessary aircraft carrier and forty attempts to repeal the ACA. Not to mention the money wasted on taking it to the SC.

Of course they dont, they dont give a shit about anything.

And now we are stuck with their healthcare plan.

While they themselves get the best coverage on the planet.

"Core Democratic value" my ass.

Looks like the Clintons/Bushes won again.

Obama: "The insurance companies dont mind a mandate. They have no problem with everyone being forced to buy it".

I wonder what health insurance stocks look like since this law was kicked off?

Why raise the income level of medicaid to, say, 45k when you can simply abuse power and force people to buy it, right?
