January 2016

Paul Ryan and the GOP continue to run circles around the capital building, shouting, waving their arms, voting and re-voting and re-voting to repeal Obamacare.

We have now been exposed to years of additional windbaggery, when the GOP could have spent a little time trying to find their own ‘better’ way to insure the 16 million Americans who will be exposed to crippling healthcare costs when the repeal succeeds.

This is not to mention the 40 million who still don’t have coverage because Obamacare, frankly, doesn’t go far enough.

The unfortunate truth is Ryan and his cohorts have no plan, none, because they do not care about the uninsured.

Here is the complete list of Republican priorities, now and forever…

1) The Wealthy (with special emphasis on the very-very wealthy)
2) Gun-makers (see also #1)
3) Nothing.

If you believe that number three might be abortion, or balancing the budget, or some sort of ‘family values’ issue … you, my friend, are an idiot.

Everything else they try to sell you… strong defense, tough-on-crime, religious faith… It is all smoke, just to get you to vote for them.

And you do. Again and again. Idiot.

“Hey,” you say…”they really DO care about a strong military!”

Well, yes they do, but only in so much as it benefits giant corporations. (See priority #1, and use Dick Cheney as Exhibit 1, Exhibit 1a, Exhibit 1b, Exhibit 1c, Exhibit 2 and Exhibit 3.)

Keep voting for Republicans. Nothing I could say would sway you anyway. You are impervious to logic.

Besides, they care about your family !!!
