And Just When You Thought That …

July 05, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

… Republicans had used up their allotment of crazy, they go and have a tweet storm.

They tweet pictures of Democrats lambasting the Republican heathcare plan and ask, “Where’s YOUR plan,” Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Al Franken, Bernie Sanders, Democrats?

 

Okay, see, these are the same Republicans who tried to repeal Obamacare about a 100 times for the past seven years, and now that they’re the dog who finally caught the car … they have no plan.

These are the same Republicans who control both houses of congress and the presidency, but can’t come up with a damn plan.

Okay, they want to see the Democratic plan?

 

.

Oh dear, I miss the good-ole-days when Republicans took Democratic surpluses and used it to give tax cuts to their rich friends instead of taking healthcare away from helpless little children.

They are crazy, y’all.

Thanks to SGray for the heads up.

  1. Hahaha The Onion is so funny!
    We’ve known the Republican Health Care Plan for years now.

    “Alan Grayson on the GOP Health Care Plan: “Don’t Get Sick! And if You Do Get Sick, Die Quickly!”‘

  2. Didn’t the Democrats already pass a health care plan? Haven’t Republicans been paying attention the last 8 years? Just because they chose to pretend it doesn’t exist, doesn’t mean the Democratic plan isn’t already the law of the land.

    Why, yes, yes, they did.

    I know you all must have seen this already:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/07/05/some-trump-supporters-thought-npr-tweeted-propaganda-it-was-the-declaration-of-independence/

    If you can’t see it because of the paywall, NPR tweeted the Declaration of Independence a sentence at a time yesterday and the alt-reich went crazy, calling them propagandists, obstructionists, etc. It was pretty great.

  5. As for those delusionists who thought someone was trying to destroy national security by tweeting the Declaration of Indepence one line at a time due to tweet character requirements, I would like to give them a pop quiz. What country did we free ourselves from in 1776?

    My bet is they would have to really hurt their heads coming up with the answer. This was tried on a random survey of folks on the street and none of them could come up with the correct answer. Instead they blurted out Mexico? France? Spain?

    Damn dropouts

    A: Someplace where a lot of those trouble making immigrants came from?

    Most of the current problems with the ACA stem from:
    – The refusal of some states to expand Medicaid
    – The failure of Congress to fund rhe risk corridors
    – Uncertainty due to Congress screwing around

    So, the default Democratic plan is to fund the ACA the way it was intended to be funded. After that has been accomplished, then we can talk about if it is successful or not.

    They really are living in an alternate universe. Repugs see only what they want to see and hear only that which pleases them.
    Science, facts and logical thinking are beyond them. We are in such trouble with those morons in charge.

    Forgot which House varmint in his frustration admitted the truth: they cannot govern.

    Cross your fingers folks. With Dolt45 negotiating with Putin, we may become part of the Russian federation.

    Worse yet Donnie might have some twitter fiesta some night that inspires Krazy Kim to reduce us to ashes.

    Gee. However could we reduce health care costs? Maybe single payer, eliminating the 20% or more off the top that goes to insurance company CEOs. D’OH. The snacibupeR st00pid, it burns.

  11. Bill F. says:

    I’ve heard a few “never Trump” Republicans point out that the last chance for a market based, conservative health care plan is the ACA. If the Republicans in Congress were conservatives, instead of reactionaries and toadies, they might realize this and find a bipartisan way to make the ACA work. Instead, by trashing the ACA, they are going to create a single-payer juggernaut on the left and they will have no one to blame but themselves.

    Two possibilities:

    (1) They’re pig-ignorant; or
    (2) They believe their constituents are pig-ignorant.

    Given the evidence, (2) seems an excellent bet, but then there are folks like Louie G. who make an airtight case for (1).

  13. Hillary’s tweet was priceless!

    “Right here. Includes radical provisions like how not to kick 23 mil ppl off their coverage. Feel free to run w/it.”
    https://www.hillaryclinton.com/issues/health-care/

    So let me see if I’ve got this right:
    Bully runs for class president, defeats the smartest girl in the class, and then has his friends pressure her to do his homework for him because he’s too busy golfing to do the job.

    That about cover it?

    A. Please help me, I thought “single payer” was in the original plan until the GOP messed with it.
    B: How many of the outraged actually read beyond the first 4 or 5 Tweets before they decided it was about Trump? I mean they had to have this tiny inkling that their beloved Spam Faced Pseudo President fit into George III’s shoes.

  15. Linda, and George III’s madness.

  16. Ellen Childress says:

    A single payer system drawn from the best attributes of that in the UK, in Japan, in Switzerland, in Thailand, etc. should be just about right. It should include dental care and vision care as well as the full array of medical care. Bernie Sanders had a plan. Hilary Clinton had a plan. They need some design work and fleshing out, but they’re ready to roll. I did read that the biggest problem with Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and Trump is that while they don’t read books much, they did read Ayn Rand and like her so-called “objectiveness” in which, as they describe it, the poor and sick are that way because of their own lack of effort and should not be any concern of those who are rich and own the country. They didn’t hear, I guess, that Ms. Rand had more or less rejected her own philosophy some time ago.
    Honestly, I thought that Ayn Rand and her protege, Nathaniel Brandon, were writers you read while you were in college and then forgot about. I suppose that since Trump doesn’t read books, he must have been impressed by what he found in one. Norman Vincent Peale’s religion of prosperity also made an impression on Mr. Trump. Mix Peale with Rand and the list of possible outcomes is truly frightening.

    Hmm, Slip, it was Denmark. Everyone knows that. Didn’t know that the Russians are crying into their vodka cause cockwomble won’t do what he promised. Not taking off sanctions so the Russian ambassador is going home whining about how difficult cockwomble is to work with. Guess Putin misjudged his puppet’s cognitive ability. Poor Vladimir thought trump was over the mental age of 10.
    Sorry to get off subject but no more comments worthwhile. The stupid rethugs can’t read anyway.

    Dear eyesoars, Thing 1 and Thing 2 are not mutually exclusive. They are, in fact, co-dependant on each other.

    It’s just too stupid to even respond to this stuff. It simply points out how un-self-aware there are. I’m embarrassed by it and they should be too!

    Speaking of the devil- http://www.politifact.com/texas/statements/2017/jul/05/pete-olson/pete-olson-said-bill-clinton-basically-told-lorett/

    Texass wingnut claims Clinton told Lynch he had Vince Foster killed so Lynch wouldn’t indict HRC. Plson said this with ironclad proof that apparently wasn’t iron clad or maybe even proof.

    Maggie- a whopping 23% of people either did not know or chose Mexico when asked which country we declared Independence from in 1776.

    This was posted on Jobsanger yesterday I believe.

  22. Actually, to call a member of the undemocratic party ‘pig-ignorant’ is to compliment said member on his or her mental acuity.

  23. So unfair to pigs. They have standards:

    THE IRISH PIG

    ‘Twas an evening in November, as I very well remember,
    I was walking down the street in drunken pride.
    But my knees went all a-flutter, so I rested in a gutter,
    And a pig came ’round and laid down by my side.

    Yes I laid there in the gutter thinking thoughts I could not utter
    when a colleen passing by did softly say:
    “You can tell a man that boozes by the company he chooses”
    And then the pig got up and walked away!
