So the sanctimonious Regressive bastards attended the White House health-care meeting today and proved three things :
- They are sanctimonious
- They are Regressive
- They are bastards
--The same old Frank Luntz talking points about Government "takeover" of healthcare - even as they absurdly pretended to be the guardians of Medicare.
--The same old nonsense about allowing companies to sell health insurance across state lines - without mentioning that they would let the insurance companies set up shop in the Marianas Islands.
--The same old blather about tort reform - to protect the rich from the victims of health care blunders and neglect.
So, what's new?!
They used Reconciliation to pass the Bush tax cuts that have now created a huge debt of nearly $2 trillion dollars and now they call the same thing "nuclear option". Now, I don't give a Flying *&@# what they call it. I don't care if they got nuked. Or screwed. Or rammed. I just don't care what happens to them.
These guys who talk about the need for 60 votes to pass healthcare reform now were the same thugs whose constant refrain 6,7,8 years ago was - "up or down vote", "up or down vote". Now, the very same thing suddenly turned into the "nuclear option", eh?
Democrats, don't pay any attention. Don't even bother to argue that it is NOT the nuclear option. Who the hell cares after the bill is passed?! Most Americans would simply move on to the next thing to worry about or the next thing to titillate themselves about even as the Regressives keep yelping that they were nuked!
Once the bill is signed into law, introduce the issue of immigration reform. That is a good wedge between the fiscal Regressives (who want cheap labor) and social Regressives (who dislike brown people). Normally, the two sets of Regressives get along very well because their priorities don't collide with one another. But in case of immigration reform, they do collide - head-on.
But that's all for the future, Right now, completely ignore the Regressives' squeals about the "nuclear option". Just take the health care bill and RAM IT! With Reconciliation. (Well, when I put it that way, it sounds almost too kind, doesn't it?! ;-) )
