Our Elected Representatives Have The Mentality Of School Children.

So I'm reading this news about the Republicans finally getting their shit together enough to pass some sort of health care reform vote when two things stuck out at me like blazing neon signs.

House passes GOP health care bill, sending it to uncertain fate in Senate



WASHINGTON (AP) — Relieved Republicans muscled their health care bill through the House Thursday, taking their biggest step toward dismantling the Obama health care overhaul since Donald Trump took office. They won passage only after overcoming their own divisions that nearly sank the measure six weeks ago.

Beaten but unbowed, Democrats insisted Republicans will pay at election time for repealing major provisions of the law. They sang the pop song "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" to the GOP lawmakers as the end of the voting neared.

The measure skirted through the House by a thin 217-213 vote, as all voting Democrats and a group of mostly moderate Republican holdouts voted no. A defeat would have been politically devastating for President Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis.


Passage was a product of heavy lobbying by the White House and Republicans leaders, plus late revisions that nailed down the final supporters needed. The bill now faces an uncertain fate in the Senate, where even GOP lawmakers say major changes are likely.

"Many of us are here because we pledged to cast this very vote," Ryan said. He added, "Are we going to keep the promises that we made, or are we going to falter?"

Leaders rallied rank-and-file lawmakers at a closed-door meeting early Thursday by playing "Eye of the Tiger," the rousing 1980s song from the "Rocky III" film.

My bold and emphasis.

These so called adults who politically represent millions of Americans sit around taunting each other like little fucking kids and have the nerve to wonder why no one has an ounce of respect for them and their approval rating lurches towards negative numbers.

Get a fucking clue, you put the R and the D in RiDiculous.

Stupid fucking bastards, this isn't junior high school.

  1. THis bill still isn't the FULL REPEAL they promised.

    At best, it is ObamaCare lite.

    Until we get beyond the concept that the State owes anyone anything, (in this case, subsidized health care) just because of income level, then things won't get better.

    If the Republicans aren't gonna keep their promise and FIX THINGS, (including, as they promised, Repeal) then why should I bother to vote for 'em? If they are DNC-Jr, then why not go full blown DNC?
