“It somehow became an article of faith on the right that Obama is ‘the most extreme President in American history.’ Although when they say that, I think what they really mean is, ‘He’s black.’”—BILL MAHER, Real Time (via inothernews)
All we have to do is replace Obama. … We are not auditioning for fearless leader. We don’t need a president to tell us in what direction to go. We know what direction to go. We want the Ryan budget. … We just need a president to sign this stuff. We don’t need someone to think it up or design it. The leadership now for the modern conservative movement for the next 20 years will be coming out of the House and the Senate.
Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United States. This is a change for Republicans: the House and Senate doing the work with the president signing bills. His job is to be captain of the team, to sign the legislation that has already been prepared. -Grover Norquist at CPAC
I love how they just come out and say that they plan on having a puppet government. Their tactics used to be so sneaky and now they don’t even bother to cover their tracks.

Mexico, which a decade ago covered less than half its population, just completed an eight-year drive for universal coverage that has dramatically expanded Mexicans’ access to life-saving treatments for diseases such as leukemia and breast cancer.
In Thailand, where the gross domestic product per person is a fifth of America’s, just 1% of the population lacks health insurance. And in sub-Saharan Africa, Rwanda and Ghana — two of the world’s poorest nations — are working to create networks of insurance plans to cover their citizens.
If our government can’t come up with a healthcare solution it’s broken, unable to govern.
Single payer is the only logical solution and is employed by plenty of successful, civilized countries.
And if you think otherwise you’re brainwashed and mentally challenged.
I have no patience.
An astute commenter said this, very well spoken
Our system isn’t really concerned with making people better. Nope, here healthcare is just another commodity to be marketed and manipulated for profit. Short term gain (for some) trumps long term health and security for the majority
