  •  Why did the Repubs nominate Dole in '96? (5+ / 0-)

    Because John McCain was too old.

    222 house republicans support the Ryan budget that would convert Medicare to a premium-support program. In other words, they want to repeal Medicare and replace it with a system that works just like Obamacare.

        I mean seriously - compared to today's Republicans, the guy was a fire-breathing Communist. And they VOTED AGAINST HIS BILL FOR THE DISABLED TO HIS FACE, when as sick and feeble as he was, he still came to sit in for what everyone thought would be a purely symbolic vote and pass of it.

        Even his so-called Republican 'friends' in Congress did that to him. Including McCain and Graham, of course.

          evil.

          I voted Tuesday, May 6, 2014 because it is my right, my responsibility and because my parents moved from Alabama to Ohio to vote. Unfortunately, the republicons want to turn Ohio into Alabama.
