Why, "We Fought the Good Fight" is just another awful disgusting lie.

They didn't fight the "good fight". They lied, bullied, kicked us in the privates, and did everything they could do to end or change the Affordable Care Act. It wasn't fair, it wasn't good, and it was not the right thing to do. But they lost anyway. If they would have won, they would have defunded a program which was designed to save lives, and save countless families their life savings. All to help the insurance companies and their rich friends. They are using those words, "good fight" to gain sympathy. They tried and lost, feel for the looser. You know, we have all fought a "good fight" and lost...

... No, these selfish assholes only care for themselves. They sure as hell don't care about poor people or people in need. They sure as hell would have stomped us down if they won. It was not a good fight. It was a rotten fight, they lost and we will have to do it again. They are like a kind of terrorist that would go into a church with children, and blow it up, then say ..."We Fought the Good Fight." They are beyond awful .They are the worst people that one can imagine. That is who they are.

1. Damn skippy--it's absolute bullshit that they're allowed to frame the tremendous disruption,

pain, and financial cost of their stunt as something noble.

3. Yes, that is it..using the language of "lost cause"..like

Jefferson Smith, (played by) Jimmy Stewart, remember?..Mr. Smith Goes to Washington..

This "We Fought the Good Fight" is just another tested talking point from their test labs..It aims to get sympathy for a fight that has none. That is what they want. Sympathy from their base, so all return to the fold. Return to the "hate committee" and help the "hate committee" hate some more..

5. +1

"They didn't fight the "good fight"... they are merely little minds who don't like democracy... the teabaggers were sent to Congress (by their constituents) to work for smaller government not to abort and destroy the democratic process

7. When you google "the good fight"

you get a bunch of religious references. But came from World War 2. "We lost WWII! Oh well, win some, lose some."

8. You know, just another fight. Like WWII....good point..

World War II. killed maybe 50 million. Killing beyond anyone's imagination Hatred exposed that is unbelievable ..Yet. "a good fight"

it was a rotten ugly mean vicious fight. Republican leadership really tried everything they could think of to win and defund the Affordable Care Act. Used every mean and vicious tactic with language that would make one think this law was taking away everyone's flush toilet. It is to save lives and families savings, not to kill the poor boy's dog who lives down the block.

9. Like most fights, there was nothing good about this fight

It was waged on false pretenses which is bad. It hurt many innocent people which is really bad. Nothing was gained which is humiliating. And it cost lots of money making it a complete waste of time.

The only good thing to happen is that the baggies let their real intentions known and showed the true racist natured of their gang so all the world could see. We are dealing with people that have the minds of 3 year olds, and none of them should be given the type of power they have. Half of them would destroy the world just so the rapture will happen and the other half just want to destroy the world.

So what's so good about that?
