Republican Pledge to America — more like “Bend Over, America!”
The public — the gullible ones anyway — has been waiting for weeks, for what? For this shit???
Everything in this simple-minded “pledge” falls into one of three categories:
1. Nonspecific feelgood phrases that mean absolutely nothing;
2. Somewhat specific proposals that give no indication — zero! — of where the money will come from.
And the third category: Things that Obama has already done — or tried to do but was blocked by Republicans — which have now been re-worded and presented as a new, “Republican” idea.
For example, the table on this page shows seven features of that dreaded Freedom-killing Obamacare. That’s in the left-hand column. In the right column is the Republican “replacement” for each item. In all seven cases, the “replacement” is the exact same fuckin’ thing as what they’re “replacing.”
For example, that wicked Obamacare prohibits insurance companies from denying coverage because of a pre-existing condition. Republican free-enterprisers have deleted that, and changed it to: “We will make it illegal for an insurance company to deny coverage to someone with prior coverage on the basis of a pre-existing condition.”
Anyway, check out the table. Talk about “funny but not ha ha.”
Just how stupid do the Republicans think their “base” is? Oh. Nevermind.
