    anti-Obamacare.  It's time we started fighting back by asking why teabaggers are against health care.  "Obamacare" lets them control the narrative.  Fuck that.

    Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

      1. It's in quotes to indicate that's what THEY call it.
      2. The Obama-Biden campaign is using #ILikeObamacare on Twitter and elsewhere, having fully embraced the term apparently.
      3. Actually, I'd argue that these are much more anti-Obama than anti-health-care, as we never saw these people protesting Romneycare, or the 1993 Republican health care reform plan (complete with INDIVIDUAL MANDATE), or the decades during which Republicans supported almost this exact health care reform plan. So yeah, I'd say this is almost 100% about opposition to Barack Obama and the Democrats.

        •  We have to, starting today, say, "If the Supreme (0+ / 0-)

          Court repeals Obamacare, that means that your insurance company will now be able to cap your lifetime benefits, and suddenly deny you coverage for a pre-existing condition they now cover"

          Anti-woman, anti-gay, anti-union, anti-worker, anti-health, anti-progress, anti-freedom: Republicans 2012. Or 1912. Hard to tell any difference.

            they DON'T have to cover pre-existing conditions today.  If they did I would be a consultant making another 40K per year because I could find affordable coverage on the open market instead of being stuck in a dead-end job.

            Next year, though, is a different animal altogether.  Unless the 5 right wing judges go against everything they have ever stood for in the past.

            I am not hopeful

            Which is good news for John McCain.

        mugs, bumper stickers, pins with "I Like Obamacare" on them

        Tee shirt favorite:  "Obamacare still a BFD"

        Plus, I just noticed that there are a whole list of big name designers that have designed some quite unique and unusual and cool "Obama 2012" themed tees.  

        The store is rocking with cool merchandise.
