The Republican party is not in a good place right now. They are historically unpopular (particularly House Republicans); they have no discernible governing agenda; they are under assault from their own supporters; they continue to say stupid things that upset key voting groups … and – guess what? – things are about to get even worse.

much of the thesis of that article depends on some level of reason and sanity among the repelican party - which as he acknowledges in the article, may not exist.

I don't advocate compromise with repelicans on any level, precisely because they are mad, self aggrandizing fools with no thought of the good of the people, and whom will continually lie about the will of the people when their desire is not embraced by a majority of the people.

  • As if Bush ever had a mandate . . . Bushite . . .

We should not await the coming confrontation without a clear understanding of what is at state and what may result - once such facts have been clearly apprehended, and the public is thoroughly prepared for the worst, then we may sit back, relax, confident that the gathering storm clouds herald war . . .

and so let it be embraced with joy

There is no sanity. There are your leg humping Libertopians, the Teathuglicans, and those that have been bullshitting for so long that they wouldn't recognize the truth if it came up and kissed 'em on their lips.

Bush had a mandate plan, but it was for retirement insuranc instead of healthcare insurance.

Force the people into private retirement insurance. No option out, all ran by private interests. Its the same thing as SS now, except it was run by private, corrupted industries.

I suppose with the healthcare plane if you are making 25k each as a couple with a kid, and you cant afford to pay $80 per week, then you dont get insurance. But they still hit you on your tax return.

Thats one very disturbing aspect of this. Cant afford more costs? They are still going to take your fuckin money.

This is the same thing. I hate them both.

My appreciation of the political landscape of this nation is rudimentary at best - yours on the other hand is clearly non existent. Or so you would have us believe.

The President, in good faith, took an issue, one that has been highly controversial in the past, and attempted to provide the public with a reasonable solution. He did this for several reasons, one being the pace of inflation among health care costs which have been far higher than that of the rest of the economy and was not sustainable.

There were many different groups to be brought to the table to make any deal happen. If you are to fault this President for anything, then perhaps it is that he did not have the courage to force any of these participants to the table at gun point.

But YOU?

you are I am quite confident, nothing but one more do nothing scum sucking repelican liar and whore for the one percent thieves who would commodify every single aspect of our lives

Of course thats what you think, thats how your brain has been programmed to function.

Gun point is a bit extreme. But maybe at least bringing Universal in for a vote would have been a good start. Maybe. I realize thats a lot to ask of a bunch of insurance company whorees, but I am a dreamer.

Boomers. Gotta love em.

I thought it was witty! I like this: – a la Alec Guinness in Bridge on the River Kwai – and blow up the whole goddamn bridge.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 7 months ago

Taking into account that it would be = and blow up the whole goddamn World - instead - and where in the Bridge over the River Kwai - his final choice was good - not so in the case of the GOP.

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (21783) 7 months ago

True that.

Whereas though if it was Boner saying blow up the whole goddamn GOP.. ..well then......"THAT" would be pretty awesome. As that would be in keeping with traveling from the dark into the light.

I think there is something our little Libertopian monsters are afraid of.

Being reborn as cockroaches to start the cycle all over again?

Oooops - my bad - responsibility and accountability.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (21783) 7 months ago

Oh, responsibility and accountability? They definitely shy away from that............par for course.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 7 months ago

Damn ..... it really pisses me off .... but ...... that seems to be the objective these days . . .

so what - of course I did it but you can't seriously want to hold me accountable for it....

Plaintiff makes a good point - throw money onto the problem so that it is stalled and our plaintiff can give his direct employees and himself a generous bonus...........bang bang........case closed.......next on the docket.............

For some reason Republican pundits forget that the Republican party is totally whored out to the insurance companies as well.

They nominated the guy who pushed it through before Obama the Dems ever got this stupid ass idea, Romney.

Anyone who thinks the Republicans are serious about defunding Obamacare are probably the same ones who think they are serious about cutting the budget.

The same ones who really have absolutely no clue whats going on in the bigger picture of things.

Its not a partisan thing. Its called a corporate takeover.

Nothing more than Dems complaining about the Patriot act, Gitmo and the wars in the 2000's, and now its just part of the system.

Pushing everyone into the insurance scam is going to be part of the system, the insurance companies arent funding both sides for no reason.

Dont worry, your glorious plan isnt going anywhere.
