So my insulin dependent friend who relies on Medicaid can lose her coverage but I have to have empathy for Deplorables. I don't give a flying shit if one dug your car out of the snow on a country road. If they knew you were a Democrat they would have probably left you there.

There was no excuse to leave the vulnerable to be prey to monsters.

How can you take medical care away from poor people? How can someone vote for a man who will take medical care away from poor people? Ignorance is no defense.

Their blood and deaths are on their hands

1. I will never understand them either.

They know the stakes, and they do it anyway.

Hateful.

2. I work with children with disabilities. The lousy fucking bastards are taking away the

aid that these babies need to survive. Kids with disabilities who live in poverty. And they're taking away their access to medical care.

And they're doing it so their cronies can have that second billion that they need so badly.

I hate their evil asses. And at this moment I hate anyone who voted for them. I fervently wish that the karma they have taken upon themselves comes back on them soon enough for me to watch it.

4. How does treating them all like the plague, help your friend?

 

If the goal is to enact better policy, we need to win more elections. It's hard to do that if all we do is demonize everyone else.

5. We won the popular vote by 3,000,000. We lost the Electoral College by 70,000....

Drumpf is at 37% approval. We don't have to become what we behold to win elections.

And when we win we will make sure everybody has access to health care, even Deplorables.

25. My only point is we don't have to make radical changes.

Even with Russia and the FBI working for Trump we still won 3,000, 000 more votes. We need to mitigates our losses in rural areas by doing slightly better in urban and suburban areas. Some folks are never going to vote for us.

I've already contacted Cruz and Cornyn.

But more contacts are better!

28. I did some research and I think they may have regnaded.

Looks like they were on board on January 9th:
https://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2017-01-10/breakaway-senate-republicans-push-to-delay-obamacare-repeal

Senators Bob Corker of Tennessee, Rob Portman of Ohio, Susan Collins of Maine, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska offered an amendment Monday night to the budget resolution that would extend the target date for the committees to write an Obamacare repeal bill to March 3 from Jan. 27.


Then on Wed night/Thursday morning they all voted for that budget resolution which defunds Obamacare.
http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=115&session=1&vote=00026


Wednesday night's vote-a-rama was real sneaky.

Sorry to post a link from RedState, but they have a simple clear summary of the Senate budget resolution:

http://www.redstate.com/absentee/2017/01/12/breaking-midnight-session-senate-passes-budget-resolution-instruction-repeal-obamacare/
With a vote of 51 to 48, the Senate tonight passed the budget resolution that is a step toward repealing Obamacare. This bill instructs congressional committees to begin writing the Repeal bills.

Senator Rand Paul voted no with the Democrats. We’ll update the vote tally shortly.

This resolution is part of the process toward repeal. It triggers “reconciliation” and protects fiscal legislation from the filibuster, requiring only a simple majority.

Passage of the resolution was expected, and now the GOP can, using the same method used to pass Obamacare, repeal it. The bill instructs the House and Senate committees to begin crafting the bills that will dismantle the Affordable Care Act, and will now go to the House for a vote, where it is also expected to pass.



And then Sen Corker posted this on the 12th:
https://www.corker.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/news-list?ID=2C4B37DC-B7DB-49E4-B645-D4F21ECF5945

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, today released the following statement after voting for final passage of the 2017 budget resolution (S. Con. Res. 3), which will guide the legislative process to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Title II of the 2017 budget resolution instructs House and Senate committees with jurisdiction over the ACA to develop legislation that would reduce the budget deficit by at least $1 billion each over the next ten years. The resulting reconciliation legislation is expected to include language to repeal and replace the ACA. Corker tonight withdrew his amendment, which would have extended the deadline for reconciliation instructions, following assurances from Senate leadership that Congress will follow a responsible timeline for replacing the health care law.


Sorry if this post is so confusing.......because it is confusing. Did they completely regnade or is there any hope?

29. The thing is - the funding is gone but Obamacare is still there and shld be harder to overturn....

 

Especially without ANY replacement. We need to fight to put CHIP back in, and regs about pre-existing conditions and then fight to refund it. They never stick to the budgets anyway.
The actual laws are not gone yet- we need to continue the fight!

31. Here is new advice from Sen Warrens office! With numbers ... and yes,

 

I did start an OP on it!

ACTION ALERT: how to stop or slow down the attack by the GOP on the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care). A friend shared with me today what Senator Elizabeth Warren is advising people to do. She wrote It is simple:

A friend called Senator Warren to ask what she can do to help push back against the ACA repeal. Here's what she was told by one of Warren's staffers:
"Senator Warren's staff member told me what would help the most would be to call the five Republican senators who have broken away from the GOP to demand a slow down of the repeal. Tell them how much you appreciate their efforts to stop the train wreck and share your story, if you have one you'd like to share (about pre-existing conditions, etc).
They are:
Senator Bob Corker - (202) 224-3344
Senator Lisa Murkowski - (202) 224-6665
Senator Rob Portman - (202) 224-3353
Senator Susan Collins - (202) 224-2523
Senator Bill Cassidy - (202) 224-58

The ones that did deserve their fate---and we were completely willing to wish that fate upon everyone else.

27. Paul Ryan, the GOP and Donald Trump are getting revenge.

This tells us they are not fit to be in any position of power, ever.

Some of their own constituents will die, will their families wake up?

Doubt it.

Oh, I almost forgot, you know how liberals get revenge? They provide MORE rights, MORE healthcare.
