It was standard practice not to pay for things

that was Orrin Hatch’s defense when confronted with the question of why he and the Republicans in control voted in 2003 for the Medicare drug program that will cost over half a trillion dollars over 10 years. “It was standard practice not to pay for things”. Hatch actually said this.

 

Can you say major hypocrites?

 

He added ”We were concerned about it, because it certainly added to the deficit, no question.” but he says it was OK because it “has done a lot of good.”

 

I guess insuring an additional 30 million Americans under the proposed bill does not qualify as “doing good”.

 

talkingpointsmemo points out that when all the Republicans voted for this measure in 2003 that “With no new taxes or spending offsets accompanying the Medicare drug program, the cost has been added to the federal debt.” 

 

Adding to the deficit is the number one issue for Republicans with the health care reform bill, yet in 2003 when ..continue reading

The Palin effect

Some just can not come to terms that the “death panel” lie was a lie. A huge lie.

 

But there will always be some right wingers out there that will not give it up.

 

Sarah Palin ruined Christmas for at least one of these wingnuts.

 

Bunny from Parsons, Kansas called CSPAN to complain about the passage of the health care reform bill by the Senate.

 

“I have taken my Christmas wreath off my house. I have taken all the lights down. This is supposed to be a nation under God, and it isn’t. They absolutely have ruined Christmas.”

 

“So you took down your Christmas tree because of the Senate health care bill?”  asked C-SPAN host Peter Slen.

 

“I certainly did. And I would like to see every light in the nation go out, especially in the White House” she replied.

 

She continued that her reason for her outrage and opposition is because its death panel provisions will unleash a ..continue reading

John Boehner must have come up with this one.

The Republicans have a new thing to rage about. 

 

It is the 10% tax that the new health care reform bill will impose on establishments providing indoor tanning services.

 

Only John Boehner who is perpetually tanned could have come up with this latest Republican outcry of foul play.

 

 

You really appreciate how stupid these Republicans are when one of them actually asks what tanning salons have to do with health care.

 

Anyone who has read a newspaper or watched the news knows that there is an increased risk of cancer when tanning at these salons. Oh wait, these are the same Republicans who also don’t believe in climate change. Reality and truth are meaningless to them.

 

As thinkprogress points out ”the International Agency for Research on Cancer “raised their warning of tanning beds from ‘probably carcinogenic to humans’ to ‘carcinogenic to humans,’” concluding that “the ultraviolet light ..continue reading

How does Jame Carville take it?

Love must really be blind.

 

It is hard to understand how James Carville and Mary Matalin can live in the same house without killing each other.

 

thinkprogress reports that on CNN yesterday Matalin compared Democrats who are pressing for health care reform to jihadists. 

 

She said “They’ve been on this jihad for 70 years, and they’re going to throw over all their competitive seats to do it” and added  ”I don’t know what kind of party that is. That leaves left in the Democratic Party the urban centers, this is tyranny of the minority. Two-thirds of the country don’t want this. And one-third of these jihadists, these health care jihadists do. I guess that’s how democracy in the Obama era works.”

 

 

Matalin didn’t stop there. She continued “They’re going to strip out all the few good things that are ..continue reading

Asshole to the end

With the 60 votes required to avoid a filibuster from the Republicans the Senate is finally ready to vote on health care reform.

 

But first a word from the chief obstructionist Tom Coburn (R-OK).

 

What the American people ought to pray is that somebody can’t make the vote tonight. That’s what they ought to pray.”

 

What an idiot.
