Have you noticed how the congress critters have taken a healthcare bill that never was to be
and stripped it of any meaningful changes and then now will pass a piece of shit bill that won't do anything to curb anyones health cost and claim that we the people demanded they pass this piece of shit bill. the bastids, damn the lot of 'em.

the naming rights to the Capital to one of the big insurers as a means of deficit reduction.

2. What are you talking about
since the SCOTUS ruling we now know that corps are people and their costs will be curbed. Fuck the rest of us though, we'll just have to suck it up and pay out. Less for more for the rest of us.

3. WE need a change and it is all of them, not a fucking one should be left
when we're finished with voting their slimy asses out and replace them with real people listening to us the real people we'll have a democracy again. Right now we don't have a democracy anymore. You can bet that every one of them will go kicking and screaming the whole way and that'll be fine just get the fuck out of our house and senate. We the people have business to take care of and we need someone working on that for us.

4. It gets better....
Next November, they'll lose a bunch of seats in both the House and Senate. Against all reason, they will take this as evidence that they need to run to the right of the republicans on all issues. Or something. At any rate, they will in no way learn a damned thing from the experience. America will continue it's quest to resemble a banana republic more closely with each passing election cycle.

5. I'm getting more convinced of that with each passing day
I can't believe what has been allowed to transpire these last 12 months. Our dems are no better than the pukes in a lot of ways and its sure starting to show. I guess they expect us to at some point in time just throw our hands up and say fuck. Not gonna happen here, I have a grand child to worry about now, whats the world gonna be like when she grows up. I'm ready to dig my heals in and get this fight started, this is bullshit that out congress critters are pulling on us right now.

7. Yep
"Health Care Reform" has NOTHING left in it but a fine against people who don't have insurance!

Aren't those the people they were supposed to help the most?

Orwell would be proud!

8. Yup, Orwell would be so proud
If we the people can't see who the masters are by now they'll never see it. It has been an onslaught against us by our corporate lords at every turn and on every front since st ronnie regime. Clinton and so far Obama are only slowing the tide and not really changing anything. I've about had all of this I can stand.
