Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Jun 29, 2012, 07:21 PM

A Republican wanted me and Dems to thank Republicans for giving us Roberts.

I said Roberts voted the way he did to save his court and his legacy. Then I said I thank Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama, and the Liberal SC justices.

What I wanted to say is... The Republicans have been nothing but obstructionists and asshats for two decades over this issue. If it weren't for them, my grandmother would probably still be with us. And then all sorts of expletives went through my head.

I think I restrained myself rather well.

1. I would have let him have it.

My mother died of cancer. I don't know if this would have helped her or not. She was diagnosed in Oct 2006 and died in Jan 2007. I think if they had caught it sooner she would have lived longer, but I don't know. Her care after diagnosis isn't the issue, she was treated. The issue here is earlier diagnosis and better preventative medicine. I think that is what will in the long run make health care more affordable, earlier cheaper treatment and more of a focus on prevention of disease.

3. I'm so sorry about your mother, Kalidurga...

You're right. We'll never know for certain if having ACA implemented earlier would have saved your mother, but it definitely would've helped alleviate misery for millions of Americans. I'm sorry about your mother.

4. We will never know...

what I think is going to end up happening is if people get a lifetime of preventive care that many disease rates will go down like cancer. As it is now many people are living with conditions that could be easily treated possibly home remedies, but they have no clue to what their treatment options are. In any case even if my mother would have gotten cancer anyway she could have gotten help with a lot of other medical issues and been a much happier person.

2. I think it's hilarious how the repubs are throwing Roberts under the bus over this

 

Without refraining myself, I also remember how some on DU thought Obama should have smacked Roberts over his inauguration flub.
