“Congratulations. You bit on the plutocrat's bait. Hook, line, and sinker.”

“oh, I disagree.
You see, last year.. folks like yourself said health insurance and particular.. health insurance companies were stealing from people, and that they'd play games with your coverage.
Today, it's all good.
Oh, I know!
They have to put 80% of their income into insurance.. Yeah!
You get 10% more insurance, which is not the same as.. "care"
Let me axe you something..
If we are going to subsidize a Bronze plan person because they can't afford the monthly premium..
How do you expect them to afford the $6,350 annual deductible?
Plutocrats win by more corporate welfare..
Yeah!”

“Wow - really? How do you know that? How could they miss that simple strategic move? Wouldn't result in a vote, but would expose Boehner further, right? Why don't they do it now? Serious questions.”

“I wondered about this too Myrtle. Can any of our constitutional law experts weigh on this?”

MyrtleJune on Oct 14, 2013 at 10:49:53

“And where are the federal marshalls? And there is a direction in the oath of office that the president takes to protect our country and our way of governing against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC. What about THAT?

The DEMS have got to burst out of this dc bubble and SEE the overthrow of this government taking place right now. This is not minority rule and y et they keep letting them twist and conflate and then cave in to the demands effectively giving us minority rule. This is JUST unConstitutional! The Dems must stop participating in the overthrow of the system of government in america.”

“Waaaa waaaa waaaa on national parks being closed. I'm sick of hearing about it. Stoooopid talking point.

First of all, your party closed them when they shut down the government. Really? You mean shutting down the government means things shut down? Shut.the.eff.up.really? Get.a.clue.

Second of all, if your party defaults on the debt, as they are threatening to do, not being able to visit national parks will be nothing, and I mean absolutely NOTHING, compared to the economic turmoil that will be unleashed upon this country. We will all suffer in ways that will make "waah waah I can't visit the WW2 monument" the least of our worries. So shut.up.already about the parks being closed. Your party knows exactly what to do to solve this manufactured crisis.”

“I absolutely agree with you. This will absolutely destroy Boehner's career and leave his name black-marked in history. To have undertaken this - the risk reward balance was never there for him. Why did he do it? Has the alcohol taken that much of a toll on his sanity and stability, or is there something else?”

“The government may overtake them, but only after the government is overtaken by corporatists and the ultra rich-which they are actively helping to do. It would be funny if the rest of us weren't affected too.”

“Thanks for the reply.

Reminds me that at one time the US sent cash and weapons to bin Laden, and chemical weapons to Iraq.

Now, Wall Street thinks that by arming the tea party, they won't have to worry about "liberal" regulations and taxes.

In all cases, uncontrollable monsters were created.

History repeats itself. Wall Street overplayed their hand.”
