Don't forget our old pal Bobby Jindal.

that's some pretty sick shit.

Hypocritically enough, not even a day went by before Jindal violated his own call to action and proudly accepted being referred to as the first Indian-American Governor by David Gregory on “Face The Nation.”

Are these people(?) Brain Dead?

Excerpt:

“Because it’s not working and it’s hurting Americans,” Cruz insisted. “And by the way, the people that it’s hurting the most are the most vulnerable among us are the more vulnerable among us. The people who are losing their jobs are young people, are Hispanics, are African-Americans, are single moms. I don’t think that’s fair, I don’t think that’s right.”

According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, 500,000 young African-Americans and 913,000 Latinos have already benefited from Obamacare because they have been allowed to stay on their parents’ health care plans. Additionally, 6.8 million African-Americans and 10.8 million Latinos will have opportunities to buy coverage through health care exchanges.

Ted Cruz. What happened? His picture looks like he ate his upper lip. Hmmm wonder if it just looks that way because he had his upper teeth punched out?

To what - DIE ??? Wheres Rubio? doesn't he want in on this?

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Rubio is busy looking for his water bottle. He needs another drink while he concocts more stories about how his parents fled Cuba.

It's a tough job but someones gotta do it - right? - but right now I would be happy to see em doing any real work at all "for the people". Somehow the wrong individuals were "picked" for the job.

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Now, how could that happen?

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

I 4 1 am completely baffled - it is almost like some behind the scenes player is just able to pick office holders and they apparently are very very very bad at it. But that's just crazy - right?

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Awe.... that's just crazy talk, D.

Yeah yeah . . . but . . still...........it is just too weird......

Does he understand that a tsunami is a destructive force?

Plus it needs another powerful destructive force to originate?

Bad metaphor = bad politician.

Ted Cruz really is an example of hazardous waste.

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

He is after all, a libe(R)tarain, first and foremost.

Or is he just "ish"?

He is a first rate clown. Every time he opens his mouth, he screws up in magnificent ways. He is a two bit hooker that is whatever it is that you want him to be so long as you pay.

[-] -1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Yep. Yes, he is. There was a first rate little conversation on Cruz last week sometime on Daily Kos. If I have time when I get in tonight I might try to hunt it down.

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

If I mention that he's yet another screwed up Texan, will Narely call for the bulldozing of Detroit once again?

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Probably.

Good chance to ask how much he is lovin the idea of fracking the cities of Texass. His motto - Drill baby Drill.

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

He wouldn't address it. he extolled Texas anyway and called for the bulldozers in Detroit.

[-] -2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

You should ask Zilla. That's his main man. Him and Rand Paul.

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Which one is he today?

Sometimes I lose track, because it's getting harder to GaF about shameless trolls.

I'm still waiting to see the equal opposite from the "other side" presented.

Mostly, they just started another thread to ignore this one.

Meanwhile, here's the results we can expect to see, if the libe(R)tarians have their way with health care.

Ummmm the corp(se)oRATions and their lackeys in office? - ummmm - I am thinking they are having fantasies of death camps.

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Camps cost money and make for difficult to control spin.

Best just to blame them for their "situation", and let them search out "cures" they can afford.

Like.....nothing....or highly profitable snake oil.

AHhhhhh interesting . . . as the fecal matter well and truly hits the rapidly rotating blades . . . You think they might just risk letting the multitudes - newly homeless - just roam freely.

HUH

good job

with your crack team, and the help of the "we tried" democrats but deferred to accountants

the fact that public health was never on the agenda is obfuscated

the united states was never serious about providing direct health care to the people

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

pat pat pat

Ok, Matt.

Nice job spinning. The rest of us asked for universal health care. But, don't let the facts get in the way. Oh, ya, it's going to be all about this while they are signing people up. Rather than spend any wee amount of time questioning why that would happen, it is much better for you to go back to whatever you were doing before. Wouldn't want to interrupt your dystopian fantasies.

The litigiousness of public officials created tensions within another part of the legal system: the colonial legislature.

Like all the great Dem, Lib, Prog, Social Services ~ Rs just say "NO," block, sabotage & repeal ~ we enjoy and love today, they started small & compromised, then expanded and improved. Just like the Affordable Care Act (OC).

Everything the rabid RW nuts lied about Medicare is being regurgitated on the Affordable Care Act (OC), with a couple exceptions like Death Panels and FEMA Reeducation Camps. Finally... they got one right.

[-] 0 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 1 year ago

healthcare should be free not "affordable"

[-] -1 points by WSmith (1849) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Gotta start somewhere, no RepubliCon was going to do it, they just block it.

The late Great Senator George McGovern had the simplest plan: Medicare For All! "Congress hereby extends Medicare to all Americans." But Cons filibustered it to oblivion. Just as fervently as they are trying to repeal the ACA, and with a few more psychos on their side, they'll succeed and we'll be back to Health Care completely controlled by Big Insurance.
