republicans only care what they think is good for them politically- not what is good for the country.
11:02 AM on 02/28/2010
No kidding. It appears that the Republicans are cheering in silence that this bill gets pushed through.
11:12 AM on 02/28/2010
No they aren't!

They are scared to death that this bill will pass. I am convinced that some republicans may even vote for this bill to advert their own kamikaze missions. Tell a TeaPartier that his newly aquired healthcare bill needs to be repealled!

Have you heard of any republican or TeaPartier who refused stimulus money? They all go for it by saying, if my kids are going to pay it back ANYWAY, why shouldn't I take it now.

That will be the republican slogan after healthcare passes.

If they we're cheering in silence why are they coming across as so desperate.

I do not believe there are enough kamikaze congressman willing to climb into thier planes and crash into the carriers for a plan they and their voters do not believe in or understand. Who would fall on their own sword for this?

Sure after the republican and their spin liar twist scare and out right lie to the people. You know the same ones with the WMD mushroom clouds mobile weapons labs.

Republicans are so see through anymore. It's like they're not even trying anymore. I will say, for once a republican is correct; and on two fronts.

1. He is correct for the Democrats, it is a kamakaze mission if they don't pass it

2. He is correct for the Republicans, it is a kamakaze mission if they do pass it

You go, Senator Alexander. Repealing the 2,700. page, $1.trillion unnecessary Health Care Monstrosity will be a great platform for campaigning! Go ahean and let Barry & the dems committ political suicide!

"Morality" has nothing to do with a $2,700. / $1.trillion monstorous piece of legislation being jammed through against the peolpes' will. The best health care in the world has been and will always "be available" to all Americans. So don't turn this into a moral argument to justify a ridiculaous and unnecessary piece of legislation.

Why then not urge the dems to pass the bill if thats what GnOPs need to win? since when were repubs motivated by protecting the middle class? they are in bed with wall street, insurance companies and military/prison industrial complex
10:53 AM on 02/28/2010
Well Lamar just shot himself in the foot by "conceding that the individual parts of the bill are popular."
11:02 AM on 02/28/2010
NO ONE, especially Republics and conservatives have said that there aren't some "good" parts of the bill. But in its entirety it is HORRIBLE BUDGET BUSTING bill. Have you people looked at what is happening in Greece lately. Watch closely because you will be seeing California as a state first as it makes its way to destroying the american economy.

Where was richardTK when Bush ran up the deficit by giving the wealthy trillions in tax cuts or how about two wars costing billions that were OFF THE BOOKS?

It is pretty clear to the republicans have no intention of dealing with health care. They are pefectly happy with their insurance payoffs. What would be suicidal for dems, is to let healthcare legislation fall by the wayside......... it will be crippling if they don't include a public option, it iwll be suicidal if they let the bill die without any improvement over the insurance tyranny we live with now.

No, what we're "perfectly happy" with is our present coverage. I think that was made clear in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts. Could it be cheaper, wellsure! But address that one simple area through standard market adjustments and we'll get there.
11:17 AM on 02/28/2010
who are we and those victories only prove people are fed up with congress as a whole not dems . funny how NY 23 is always left off the list. Why because it blows a whole in your rhetoric.

There are no market forces in place........ the insurance companies are exempt from market forces........ and btw....... what value add does a health insuance company bring to your health care? If you had any understanding of the business model behind insurance you would be clamoring for a single payer non profit program.

Why do repubs always use fearful words to describe the reality of what is really going on?

Because they rarely have anything in the way of reasoned platforms to stand on. And...look who they are catering to?

Best if you ignore them, in my opinion.
10:51 AM on 02/28/2010
a "political kamikaze mission."

Perfect cpmparasion, it will destroy the country and it's political suicide for the Democrats.

When immature children are bickering and whining for something they want that is not a necessity and cannot be afforded, someone has to be the mature parent in the group, step up, and say "No". So yes, in this case the Republicans will proudly wear that "party of No" with honor. At least one party's showing some discpline here. Party of No!! Maybe a better platform than repealing this monster.

I wish Lamar wouldn't say that because the Democrats might listen to him.
10:57 AM on 02/28/2010
Only the smarter ones would, and there are precious few of those. The ideologues like Pelosi, Reid and The Messiah will go on their merry way. Thankfully.
