4. Sad, but true.

Over the last several decades the GOP has systematically rid itself of every member who isn't a sociopath.

8. Yup. Purchased by GOP donors

And the GOP donors' main goal is to destroy the government to allow tax cuts on the 0.01%.

With this bill we see that destroying the government often means destroying the lives of Americans.

12. I don't believe they ever had souls to begin with.

They are completely heartless and soulless men. Miserable excuses for human beings.

6. Never had any. Health care destruction is a GOP issue, not 45.

Dionne is confused.

All GOP have been running on destroying Obamacare for 6+ years. This bill has nothing to do with the president*.
It's a Koch Brothers and GOP donor bill.

The reason American politics is so scary today is that the GOP destroy-the-goverment donors have allied with the president. Either one by themselves would not threaten our democracy the same way.

13. He is not confused. GOP gave tRump a legislative victory by voting themselves their own policy.


Not his.

tRump does not have a health policy. He has all the heath policies. He's for single-payer, affordable care, states rights, high risk pools, terminating coverage for pre-existing conditions, covering pre-existing conditions, no government subsidies of health insurance, complete coverage of everyone, emergency room care, ....

tRump is clueless because "who knew healthcare was so complicated?" he says.

All tRump got was a feather in his cap.

16. In their actions they're not pretending, but they are outright lying about the actual impacts of the

bill. They are pretending it will be better for people.

14. Avarice is a Disease-Republicans Are Infected

Republican can be counted on to go too far. In this case, their avarice will be their undoing. The dollar is their god and they have no respect for human life, despite the endless posturing. They are despicable and cruel beyond imagining.

17. Some jackass Repuke Rep was just on Joy saying it was completely

fair to charge the older population and put caps on their care. His bullshit excuse was since so many young people refused to get coverage the insurance companies couldn't afford to continue coverage of the over 50.

He continued to puke out some more bullshit, but the major tidbit is true death panels for those over 50.

The only Republicans I can think of that have any morals or ethics are no longer in office.
