    It's about fucking blindness.

    •  jesus christ your fucking self (0+ / 0-)

      i wasn't talking about blindness.  i was talking about the broader point Jim made and i'm sure even he would agree with me.

      and yes; framing does matter.  or do you think we should be reinforcing the notion the EPI is the way it's supposed to be?

      good grief.

      Never forget that the Republican War on Women originated with religion; the GOP is but theocracy's handmaiden.

        about what we're discussing, not necessarily the opinions expressed.

      •  You're arguing that it's great when people with (7+ / 0-)

        a desperate need for care lose access to it.

        Virtually everyone is ignoring you in this diary on a general "do not feed the trolls" approach.  But the shit you're spewing needs to be addressed.

        Shit doesn't need to get worse before it gets better.  We don't need a bigger pool of desperate people in order to make better policy.

        We just need fewer people making excuses for the politicians who continue these abuses.

        •  again, learn to read (0+ / 0-)

          because i am not saying the things you say i'm saying.

          and i love how you still haven't answered my question:

          do you think it's wise to reinforce the notion that EPI is the way it's supposed to be?

          that's really all i'm saying and you fucking know it.

        out the window in strong favor of The People.  This is one of them.  

        We delivered. They failed us. We have moved on. (h/t to my good friend)

      •  So how many people are you willing to let (0+ / 0-)

        die for your framing?  If you get rid of EPI too early then those people will simply be left without insurance and a fair number will die from easily treatable medical conditions.  So I ask you again, how many lives are you willing to sacrifice on the altar of "framing"?

        There is no saving throw against stupid.

      We need affordable health care for everyone in America.
      No one should be sacrificed for the good of insurance profits.
