12. Every Republican....

Congresscritter is a member of THE death panel. A vote for this abomination is a vote to kill Americans, simple as that. But the wealthy need those tax cuts to keep their offshore bank accounts topped off. Every American has to ask themself, "Where do my loyalties lie? Am I going to be selfish and want healthcare, or do my loyalties lie with the wealthy, so they can have their huge tax cuts that they don't need at all?"

I know where MY loyalties lie! With the wealthy, of course!

3. Can't let those billionaires not get a tax break!

Better to screw my Medicare and millions of others who relay on it.

What a bunch of assholes.

5. Contact Your Senators And Congresspersons And Make Sure That They Put A Stop To This.....

as well as what the Repugs are planning against ACA (Obamacare) mandates. Also - if you are an AARP member make sure you contact that organization and make sure that they are working for us Seniors and take the Repugs to task on these issues.

15. Hope you like the taste of Grandma

You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There's grandma-kabobs, grandma creole, grandma gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple grandma, lemon grandma, coconut grandma, pepper grandma, grandma soup, grandma stew, grandma salad, grandma and potatoes, grandma burger, grandma sandwich... That- that's about it.

8. Will you call your Senators and Reps NOW?

ALL of us (except the goddamned billionaires) are going to NEED Medicare one day if we're not on it now. We cannot afford this, just so Kochs, Mercers, Adelsons and Trumps can have a tax cut.

13. A lot of those white rethug voters get Medicare

Too bad they will never hear that their benefits will be cut. Remember those tea bag rallies they carried signs, “no government health care, hands off my Medicare”. Those idiots.

18. Republicans do well among the 65+ electoral crowd

during any election. Risking sounding like an ass, maybe we should let the 65+ crowd get a taste of what they voted for, I can promise you they will get their heads screwed on right.

I live in a big retirement region. Most of the really old people that I see are elderly Whites, the very people that vote heavily republican. I say let them suffer through 2018, only then can we have the power to save their asses.
