"All lives splatter". Well, isn't she a funny girl. Republican majority whip in the South Dakota House represents herself as some real scum. With the pipeline demonstrations in s. dakota, the legislature determined it would be alright to drive into demonstrators. Since, other states have taken up the same determination. Hence, we came to have the murder and injuries in Charlottesville. She should be voted out.

Thank You Jimmy Kimmel for being so vocal about the bullshit the republican congressmen are, once again, trying to force on the American population. grahm-cassidy bill is a disaster waiting to happen.
https://www.democraticunderground.com/1017458035
and, it's trumpcare all over again
https://www.newyorker.com/news/john-cassidy/the-graham-cassidy-bill-is-a-potential-disaster
and, this is what these republicans are trying to shove down your throat, again, only worse.

and, VoteVets on twitter

and, an excellent tutorial and explanation of the current republican attempt to destroy ObamaCare and replace it with a horror story.
https://www.democraticunderground.com/1017458082
and, senator charles grassley, of iowa, believes it is more important to repeal ObamaCare than pay attention to what replaces it (grassely has been i congress for about 40 years).

I'm Lovin' it. Jimmy Kimmel: round three with these lying bastards. They try to belittle him, but he rises to the top because he is sincere, cares, and is honest. Those are some things for which there is no rebuttal with these republicans, because they they are insincere, don't care, and are not honest. They wouldn't know honest if it sat on their faces.
Mucho respect for Jimmy Kimmel.

The Republican health plan has nothing to do with real healthcare for American citizens.Even the insurance lobby has come out recently against this new health plan.I get the argument that will come from the Trump faction.Why should our tax dollars help support the medical needs of our population.Well it's kinda like why we subsidize the oil industry and the military industrial complex that sucks billions of our dollars to keep Americans safe.This new healthcare law is not about helping the American population it is about the game our politicians are willing to play at the expense of our lives ,our children and grandchildren .One provision being considered in this bill would make it illegal for States to implement single payer health plans.So much for the States Rights bullshit the Republicans tout.

Yep, everything B006 says is absolutely correct, and yes as well, it has been proposed that there be legislation created to halt the attempt of any state pursuing a single payer heath plan on a state level (isn't it amazing these fuckers are so pro give control to the states until it disagrees with their right wing philosophies). I was only able to see about half of the healthcare debate between Bernie and grahm and cassidy.
I did finish watching, after.
grahm and cassidy, both, tried to win their side by using lies and fear. About 1 hour and 24 minutes. I was especially appalled but lindsay grahm's lies about planned parenthood and baby body parts. I was not surpised by cassidy's obfuscation and the socialist dog whistle statement he pulled out. In my opinion, well worth seeing.

and. here is an 18 minute follow up critique that expresses my opinion.

The gop in the state of alabami is about to put an ignorant, racist, total bible thumper into the U.S. Senate. This is the same state that gave us the ignorant, racist, bible thumper, current attorney general, jeff sessions.
This is an excellent article from Charles Pierce. I concur that empathy is out the window with these alabamian voters.

So, dip shit trump holds a press conference to convey the love and respect mitch mc conell and trump have for each other. hat a sideshow. Of course, they don't like each other. Meanwhile, trump makes a ludicrous, lying fool of himself while mc connel stands there looking like an idiot. Hence, twitter finds the golden thread in this cringe worthy display.

For the cost of repealing the estate tax (repulicans like to call it the death tax)......

First disgusting bill o'reilly says mass shootings are the price of--wait-freedom. Now we hear from steve scalice of louisianna. Do these people who vote these lunatics in have any real education (is there such a thing anymore as real education)? He believes mass shooting are the cost of the 2nd amendment. A leader/ lawmaker of our country??

How much longer are these republicans going to be able to lie to the American public (and much of the rest of the world) and get away with it. Thom Hartmann 8 minutes

and, trump is lying through his fucking teeth about his tax plan.

The in-charge republicans voted a few days ago to eliminate the ability of Americans to sue business/corporations in class action. Arbitration is the only avenue now to fight corruption--and that's on an individual basis. There is no longer the fear people will band together with attorneys to fight, in court, injustice. And, all republicans were on board for this issue--mc cain, flake, corker, collins--all of them 100%. That's a monster with for business.
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/24/business/senate-vote-wall-street-regulation.html?

I thought this was interesting and seemed to echo the republican ethos, totally.

WTF!! trump's new ambassador to Canada is a big contributor to the republican party and her husband is big time coal. Check out her climate theory. Both sides are right. This whole trump administration and all of his supporters are vile and don't give a flying fuck about anything but money, and have not one thought about the future.
https://thinkprogress.org/climate-denial-canada-f1c079162a72/

Check out this idiot, nunes. of California, Initially, the republicans started research this trump/russian/pee tape because they didn't want trump to win. When trump won, republicans dropped it and democrats picked it up, but didn't do anything with it. Numerous things have proven to be true.
BUT...it doesn't matter who paid for the research. OK?

Is trump the biggest conman? Hard to believe, no. The biggest conman is the total slimy piece of cowardly shit, paul ryan. If he had his way, there would be no social security, no medicaid no nothin' to help anyone who needs any help in anyway.

The republicans will be adding close to 2 TRILLION--that's with a T--to the deficit. These deficit/debt hawks are willing to add to/load the national debt, massively, to give the wealthy tax breaks. trump's tax plan would save him BILLIONS. Do you really think he will do something with those billions he collects, personally, to "make America great again". Well, think again.
To make this happen, they (republicans) not only will cut from medical, educational, nutritional, housing, infrastructure--everything--but, will BORROW, massively, to make this happen. And, taxes will go UP for those earning less than 50K. How can you abide this??, whether you're rich or poor?

Fuck You gop congress and the dufus trumpster. Maine takes health care in their own hands and votes for what the voters want, not what the trash ass gop congress wants. Now, their republican governor is trying to stop it.

Patriotic Millionaires address, honestly, the gop 'fuck the working people of America' tax charade they and scum bag trump are trying to force through congress. Yes, it's paul ryan's biggest wet dream. It's what the prick has lived to do since college. Can you even begin to imagine that? 2 minutes

Alabami politics. May be the most evangelical state in this nation. This guy who wants to be senator, roy moore, bible thumper extraordinaire. People who live there like him. People who vote there like him?? Despite, now, accusations of sexual predation, they like him? I find this mentality unimaginable.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/woman-says-roy-moore-initiated-sexual-encounter-when-she-was-14-he-was-32/2017/11/09/1f495878-c293-11e7-afe9-4f60b5a6c4a0_story.html
and, top republican responds to moore allegations--so enlightened
https://twitter.com/thehill/status/928862557619806208
and, both moore and his opponent have a history of young girls in their background. Doug Jones, the democrat--roy moore, the republican. It seems like a no-brainer to me.
One is a predator and one is a defender.
https://www.democraticunderground.com/10081592
and, To add to the disgusting spectacle, republicans are using the bible to defend moore. I guess they can twist that book any way they want.

On an other disgusting topic--tax reform, republican style.

This from Rick Wilson, And, yes, he is an entrenched republican. But, he's not insane.
