Teabaggers Warn Republicans Not to Waver on Obamacare

If or when the Supreme Court overturns Obama’s Affordable Care Act, Republicans will be in an awkward position.  The ball will be in their court.  Our health care quagmire is probably the most volatile issue of the last few years.  If Republicans succeed in getting the Affordable Care Act overturned, hundreds of millions of Americans will have the GOP in their crosshairs (figuratively):  “OK, you got rid of our insurance coverage.  NOW what are you going to do?  What’s YOUR solution?”

Republicans — at least the ones whose IQs are higher than their shoe sizes — are aware of this dilemma.  Even Allen West — not to mention a lot of moderate Republicans — is concerned about people losing their coverage for pre-existing conditions or for family members twenty-five and under who are still living with their parents.

Club for Growth and Freedom Works are having none of this touchy-feely whining about sick people.  Club for Growth spokesman Barney Keller said:

“The Club for Growth supports complete repeal of Obamacare. And complete doesn’t mean partial. It means complete.  [Ed. Note:  Barney Keller has just passed his sixth-grade English exam, so please bear with him while he shows off his new vocabulary]  We urge the so-called ‘tea party’ Republicans to keep their promises to voters and continue to fight for complete repeal as well.”

FreedomWorks spokesman Dean Clancy expressed his concern about bleeding heart spineless Republicans who might try to “resurrect parts of Obamacare.”  He said:

“It would be the height of folly for Republicans to say ‘OK, this is our problem now.’  It’s not the Republicans’ fault if 25-year-old slackers suddenly are dropped from mom and dad’s health insurance policy. It’s not the Republicans’ fault if various other provisions of Obamacare are no longer on the books. … The American people need to have a chance to reflect on the fact that the Democrats basically rammed an unconstitutional bill down their throat.”

“Their throat” — so apparently the American People have one collective throat that they’re all sharing.

Dean Clancy went on to brag that most Republicans are afraid to defy the Club for Growth and similar teatard groups:

“My sense in talking with some of them is that they’re not going there.”

Dean Clancy will hopefully find out that Karma’s a bitch.  Perhaps at an upcoming medical checkup, Clancy’s doctor will approach him with a stricken facial expression and say “This is serious.  I’ll need to run some more tests…”

Republicans are like the 3 Musketeers***

All for the 1%,
And the 1% gets All!

***- except of course, a gentleman with as swarthy an appearance as Alexandre Dumas would be persona non grata in the Republiklan Party these days.

Just like the ignorant Tea party sided with the Republicans demanding they save us fiscally from the Democrats while ignoring the Bush Medicare Plan is our most largest part of the deficient (outside of the two wars), Did they also notice the act has a lot of Republican Amendments in it (in the name of Bi-Partisonship)?

Did you also notice that Insurance and Healthcare Industries, while staying quiet are actually licking their chops over the mandatory part of the act (Take it from the Auto Insurance guys, it's a cash cow) they will lose out big if this gets overturned?

Well at least they will saving us all from the Death Panels

The Klanservative Klanbagging Kochsuckers see 25 year olds who can't get medical insurance as "slackers."

These are, remember, the people who were afforded a fantastic life because of the benefits of good governance. And they happily ripped all that to shreds, sh*tting in the nests of the young-who they blame for the disaster that they, themselves, created.

No society, at any time in the history of the Earth, has ever produced a more selfish, or worthless, bunch than the "Lamest Generation" of boomers. And I say that as someone in the tail end of that demographic.

I weep for the plummeting IQ of the US of A.

We've lost our critical-thinking skills, no more so than amongst our politicians.

The insurance industry claims the fault lies with the providers. The providers claim it's the insurance companies. They both claim it's the government.
Illustration: My wife had no insurance and paid $45 for a test. Now she has insurance and the insurance company was charged $145 for the same test.
Bottom line, it's simple greed that's ruining us.

Lisa, dammit, MEN are talking here. We know you want to be a part of it, but you just aren't capable of it. Sure-a dumb broad can figure out how to post meaningless links, but that isn't the same as knowing something.

Now you run along and finish baking us a fine rack of barbecued ribs. Then I want you to shine my shoes; I might head down to the club tomorrow night and I can't be seen with spotty spats.

Grung: Yup, it's of, by and for the 1%.

Erik: No doubt the HMOs were quietly jumping for joy over the insurance mandate, same as the auto insurers.

JR: That's right, now that conservatives have gotten their own government-backed wages and benefits and home loans, these 25-year-old slackers can sink or swim on their own.

Pearl: LOL. That's definitely something to weep for.

Mr. C: Very good example. Everyone is greedy and sleazy and they all point the finger at each other.

Dave: Damn right, them gubmint beerokrats and their death panels will be the death of this great nation. You betcha!

So JR I take it you didn't click on the links?
Oh you want to blame baby boomers now? They weren't the ones who created the programs.
Seeing you like to blame people why not blame welfare recipients whose kids the baby boomers have been paying for for years or does that not fit into your narrative?

Are those ribs ready yet? If they aren't, why are you HERE, instead of doing your womanly duties?

There might come a day when a bunch of Republicans will rebel against Norquist and Freedom Works'-style extremist thuggery, and either bolt the party or create a counterinsurgency with enough horsepower to deny radicals election wins. I'm not saying it's inevitable. The chances of it happening would be better if voters would hold the SOB's out of power for a few election cycles. But anything is possible.

Pearl, the eroding intelligence problem mostly resides in about 27 percent of the population. Among pols who pander to that portion of the population the problems run more to arrogance, ignorance, selfishness, being a bully by nature and greed.

SW: I hope that day will come. I miss those bygone days when politicians and pundits of both parties could have adult conversations in a rational manner.
