Put the guns down, but if anyone thinks a gun event is going to stop me from calling slime slime

you've got another think coming!

I really, really hope Steve Scalise recovers. Mr. Hodgkinson was more than just a creep... he was an evil slimeball, and his stupidity only hurt our cause to bring true responsible, compassionate, effective government to our beloved country.

But as a citizen of Louisiana I stand by what I posted just a few weeks ago about Steve Scalise on an LSU fan message board:

Let me be clear - Steve Scalise is an asshole

He's trying very hard to whip up votes to wipe out healthcare coverage for pre-existing conditions.

To recognize just how big an asshole he is one only has to consider the case of a baby born like Jimmy Kimmel's... with a heart defect.

While it is true that even without health insurance a hospital would give such a newborn emergency care treatment to save his life, that coverage would END for that unfortunate fellow once he leaves, by force of growing up, his parents' health insurance plan. Unless he has rich parents like Jimmy Kimmel his life beyond his mid 20's is almost guaranteed to be financial hell, as would theirs if they're unfortunate enough to somehow lose their policy before he reaches that age. THIS COUNTRY SHOULD BE BETTER THAN THAT, and with Obamacare it currently is, but unfortunately ASSHOLES such as Steve Scalise are trying to make America sick again because they suck at the teats of insurance companies.
