Republican Motivation


1/26/17

Here's why Republicans are rushing to destroy Obamacare as fast as they can ...

It is costing their true  constituents a fortune

In case you haven't figured it out by now,
Republicans work for the rich ... and only  for the rich.

Why the rich hate Obama and the Affordable Healthcare Act so much

If only Conservative ideologues could be made to realize
that the last paragraph of that article
held the answer to freeing them from the tyranny of lies
that has been manipulating them,
America could finally begin its long climb out of the valley of destruction.

"Make sure you point that out to the blue collar guy on Facebook
who tells you that he's paying for the freeloaders.
He is indeed, but he's looking in the wrong direction when he turns his gaze ...

DOWN

Ideological Supreme Court votes 5-4 (as usual)
to defecate on our Constitution


I have a question - during all those years that Hobby Lobby owner Steve Green and his lovely, ultra-rich wife Barbara were providing health insurance for their employees (which included contraception coverage) ... why were their religious beliefs not offended?

Were they Atheists?
No - quite the opposite.

Did Jesus visit them one night and scold them for not being offended?
Not likely.

Did their business become financially strapped for cash?
No, they are America's largest arts and crafts chain.

Was it - oh, I don't know - maybe when Obamacare was ruled constitutional that the Greens became filled with the Holy Spirit, and suddenly decided that they had been wrong all those years during the Bush administration when they provided health care for their employees (which included contraception coverage)?

BINGO!

The Oklahoma Bible Belt strikes back at that uppity negro.
(whom they have failed to beat, twice, in democratic elections)

The entire premise of Hobby Lobby's argument is that their religious beliefs were offended. I have just proven that they were not. Their religious beliefs were fine with providing contraception under Bush. Therefore ... they have no valid argument. That point alone should have resulted in a 9-0 decision against Hobby Lobby.

Obamacare compromise fails to satisfy
Evangelicals and the Republican anti-women contingent


No matter how many times the Obama administration bends over backwards to accommodate women-hating Republicans and religious freaks, it fails to satisfy them. That's because they are not interested in compromise. They are interested only in continuing their domination of society; especially where it concerns women and sex.

They continue to try to force their screwy religious beliefs on everyone else;
and when they are prevented from doing so, they scream "Religious Discrimination!"

News Flash - no one is attacking your freedom to believe in, and practice, your religion. What modern society IS attacking, is your freedom to force your crazy, screwball beliefs on everyone else.

Republican Reaction


5/21/17

You will never find a better example of hypocrisy
than this expose of Paul Ryan's position on health care.



Ryan has proven himself to be one of the most dishonest men who has ever lived.

Conservatives constantly scream about "State's Rights!"
But that is a lie. They are only for State's Rights
when they need to circumvent Federal equality laws.
Here is the proof that they will stomp on State's Rights
when it is in their political interest to do so ...

They want to eliminate the Medicaid Expansion

"Red" state governors opted out of the Medicaid Expansion
which cost the lives of thousands of their own citizens.
Yet these "State's Rights" advocates want to deny other states
the right to accept the Medicaid Expansion.

You fell for this America.
It was all right in front of your eyes.
So quit whining, bend over, and grab your ankles.
Many thousands of you are going to die.
And this is what you Conservatives voted for.

Keep voting Republican ... the rich sure do appreciate your support

Can you count on Christian leaders to stand up for the poor
you know, like Jesus did ...

don't bet your kid's college fund on it

Peter famously denied Christ 3 times ...
these guys didn't even have the guts to do that.

Remember when Republicans were complaining about death panels?

The Medicaid refusal in Republican-controlled states
will result in many thousands of deaths:



Republican leaders turned out to be the death panels.
(and understand, that these are just the deaths;
the numbers don't include the millions who survive
and have to suffer, and live with
devastating, untreated health problems)

Conservatives value political power more than human life.
So keep voting Republican - The Rich certainly do appreciate your support.

I tried. Really, I did. I tried for years to be fair.
I knew both political parties were guilty of corruption.
But the current political climate has made it clear, even to me,
that one side has deteriorated into America's greatest enemy.

California Republicans set up fake web site to discourage health care seekers

These are the same people who 2 months ago
attempted to destroy the American economy.
They aren't just rooting for America to fail,
they are doing everything in their power ...
to ensure that it does.

Healthcare enrollment is at about 2 million (they had hoped for 7).
So where are the other 5 million?

The Republicans are blocking them ... in their own states

When you can do THAT to the poorest people whom you represent,
knowing that thousands will die from not having access to medical care,
I think you've pretty much eliminated yourself from consideration
for being included ... in the human race.

UPDATE

Great news for the poor, elderly, and the sick;
not so great news for ... Republicans

Uninsured rate at lowest level in 50 years

TrumpCare


6/22/17

Nothing makes me madder than when I have to come to the defense
of either Trump, or Republicans in general.
But when I do, I take it out on those who put me in that position.
In this case, I'm talking about the Dumber-than-Dogshit Trump voters.

Trump and nearly all Republicans ran on the promise to repeal Obamacare.
They have been doing everything in their power to accomplish just that.
But their constituents are going nuts in town halls across the country.

Well, boo-hoo. What the Hell did you morons think they were going to do?
They are trying desperately to do exactly what they promised to do.
They are trying to accomplish exactly what "you people" told them
that you wanted them to do.

There was no "bait-and-switch."
Trump and the Republicans are trying to live up to their part of the bargain.
So where do their crazy supporters get off, trying to blame them
for doing exactly what they promised to do?

If this doesn't prove that Conservatives are "certifiable" ...

I don't know what does

Cystic Fibrosis patient's survival depends on healthcare

This is something everyone should have been able to figure out
without even having to read the article.

Just in case there are any of you out there
who still haven't figured out who is in charge
(Trump or the Tea Party) ...

this should make it clear

So the secret behind the "Art of the Deal" is ...

to cave in?

(Gee, who would've guessed?)

You won't be hearing this one on Fox News

Social Security will save 3 billion dollars thanks to Republican healthcare

And if the Republican House of Representatives' Freedom Caucus
had had their way (a total repeal of Obamacare without replacement),
thousands more Americans would have died
saving Social Security even more money.

Republicans kill Americans for profit - it's what they do - it's ALL they do.

But keep voting Republican ... the rich sure do appreciate your support

Worldwide Comparisons


What will happen if the Supreme Court guts Obamacare?

(this map shows the countries that provide universal health care
to their citizens; which is far more than Obamacare provides)



You'll have to give the U.S. a little more time.
We are still recovering from a couple of very expensive wars.
But we plan on helping the poorest and sickest Americans just as soon as
our stock market, housing, gas prices, employment situation,
and our national debt ... all improve.

Oh, that's right - they all already have.
Well, we plan on helping them as soon as Hell freezes over.
(there ... that should hold'em for awhile)

Even after the United States passed Obamacare

We still rank last in healthcare

And if Republicans could have their way,
they would give new meaning to the word "last"
by returning America to its old system.

The ACA saved lives.
When Republicans say that repealing the ACA
will not mean people dying in the streets ...

they are lying

The Affordable Care Act has reduced racial disparities in healthcare.

Richard Nixon's health plan

This is pretty strong evidence
that people aren't actually arguing over the issues.
They choose sides (Democrat or Republican)
and then root for their team ...

When Obamacare was upheld by the Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision, there were 8 justices who could have been accused of sacrificing their sworn duty in order to promote their political ideologies. The accusation could have been made against all 4 liberal judges who supported it. The accusation could have been made against all 4 conservative judges who voted against it. There was only one judge, against whom, that accusation could not be leveled: Chief Justice John Roberts, a conservative who voted to support it.

Not all Christians should be judged by America's evangelical thugs.

Healthcare Debate

Now that's what I call a "Christian."

But more importantly, Jesus calls this man a Christian ...
Jesus can't even recognize those other fools.
