Contact Thune and tell him WE are more important than the insurance business!!!
Apparently, our idiot junior senator's main objection to SCHIP is that it's too costly for taxpayers and would be "harmful to private insurance."

Excuse me? Who the hell does he represent anyway, the citizens of this state or the goddamned DenialCare industry? How many of our citizens, allegedly HIS constituents, have been harmed, and continue to be harmed, by said private insurers, through denial or non-coverage of badly needed treatments/tests/, refusal to cover people for their bogus, bullshit reasons, taking more and more in premiums and giving less and less coverage, etc., etc.? That doesn't even count those of us who don't even have coverage at all. And HIS TAX-FUNDED health insurance is the best in the country, thanks to the very same taxpayers he's kicked in the teeth, and who may not even have their own insurance or may be getting screwed by insurers, but whose taxes pay for HIS goddamn excellent health care.

It's bad enough that he wraps himself in the flag chanting the mantra of "support for the troops", but that he votes against them most of the time. The most recent being against Senator Webb's bill to allow a break of a year between deployments for stressed-out, overdeployed troops. But this SCHIP bullshit just takes the cake.

MISTER Thune (for I refuse to call you my senator anymore), if you're so against taxes going to health care, then give up your own goddamn TAX-FUNDED comprehensive health insurance, for which you pay under $50 a month. And why don't you try thinking of US, the citizens of your state, your constituents, ahead of the private insurers that are squeezing and harming us at every turn? :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :puke: :puke:

1. Speaking of Thune the Loon
I have a feeling that he is stoked with the 55% of South Dakota voters who did not vote for our nominee.

I'm still baffled when I look at the national map that South Dakota stands alone in the middle of so many western states as the only one who didn't vote for Barack.

On the bright side~ ~ ~ KUDOS to the 45% of South Dakotans who voted for our nominee!

2. It is because...
as a former South Dakotan I can tell you that South Dakota is the most racist state in the US.
