  •  The selfishness and morality of these Republicans (7+ / 0-)

    just boggles my mind.  They want to see people die rather than lift a finger (and really, it's not much) to help them live.  The studies say that this will help them as well, since it would keep costs lower for them (actually paying for coverage for care that doesn't wind up expensive in ER's where the cost gets passed back to the insured).

    We need to make it clear -

    Republicans want to pay money to kill people rather than save money to keep people alive and contributing to society.

    The Republicans are the death panels.

    •  Attention Republicans: (7+ / 0-)

      Every time someone dies because (s)he was denied Medicare, the survivors will become Democrats.

      •  The grand irony of this whole thing (3+ / 0-)

        Republicans always talk about meritocracy.  While now the states that use logic and facts will succeed, while the anti-science anti-fact looney states will crash and burn.

        The irony?

        The very mechanism republicans claim to champion (the merit of competitive choices to allow the smart to succeed over the stupid) will be the very mechanism that leads red states into ruin.

        It would be hilarious if so many innocents didn't have to suffer in the process.

        Blue states will continue to progress and succeed, while red states will continue to collapse.

    •  It is not enough to succeed, in their view (2+ / 0-)

      Others must fail, to the maximum extent possible.

      demonstrate that every attack they make on the "liberals" etc is really a projection of their own deepest and strongest wishes. They are doing everything they can to kill ofd the old folks and other "takers", but it's the Dems who want Death Panels. They are all about Liberty, but work full time for the Oligarch Coup. They yearn for economic health, but do everything they can to bring down the economy. This is honest-to-god psychopathic behavior. They bloviate about individual choice but obsess about denying women, gays, and poor people the right to choose anything important. They are "pro-life" but do their best to make sure our planet dies. And as their wishes come closer and closer to fulfillment, the scream that the liberals/commies/Dems did it.

      ,This is honest-to-god psychopathic behavior, yet the media and even the Democratic Party prefer to pretend that this is just a difference of opinion, just politics as usual. It is harder and harder not to wonder if this is all some kind of dream, because reality can't possibly this self-destructively nuts.
