Three weeks of bombing; missed every target

The final vote in the Senate was 81-18, with 27 Republicans voting yes.  Here are the Republicans who voted no (from NRO Online):

Senators David Vitter (La.), Ted Cruz (Texas), Mike Lee (Utah), Marco Rubio (Fla.), Ron Johnson (Wis.), Pat Toomey (Pa.), John Cornyn (Texas), Richard Shelby (Ala.), Jeff Sessions (Ala.), Rand Paul (Ky.), Dean Heller (Ariz.), Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Mike Crapo (Idaho), Tom Coburn (Okla.), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), Jim Risch (Idaho), Tim Scott (S.C.), and Pat Roberts (Kan.). Senator Jim Inhofe (R., Okla.) did not vote.

So what’s the message going to be on talk radio tomorrow?

  1. I want the list of the 144 House Republicans because they’re the real problem. This whole thing has been such a farce. This wasn’t about health care policy or any of the other Tea Party pet projects; this was revenge plain and simple. They haven’t gotten over the fact that Romney lost the election last year and this was their way of getting back at us. They’re sore losers and hopefully, they’ll be voted out in next year’s mid-term elections. The sad thing is that I don’t think they would be this pissed off if the person that beat Romney was anyone other than Obama with his biracial heritage and foreign-sounding name.


  2. ScifiGirl1986 has it right. The TP is infused with racial hatred, which is why they have embraced the term, ObamaCare. That alone is enough to energize their unthinking home bases. So, expect that word to continue to be thrown about as an epithet for the foreseeable future.

    It’s bizarre, when you think about it. Obamacare is pretty much the same as RomneyCare in MA and the concept was originally a conservative one. The main change is in who’s pushing it.

    Yesterday, my wife had an accident – a two-inch lesion on the back of her hand. Two hours in the ER, one x-ray, one tetanus shot, six stitches. The bill? $1,320. Our insurance will cover it, and at a very big discount. The young woman just ahead of us at the checkout had a similar bill. I could see the clerk circle the number, $1,307. I heard her say she couldn’t pay it, and she was handed a sheaf of papers to explain her options. How damn cruel of our dark president to insist that she should get some insurance, eh?

    Next on the TP agenda, perhaps: revive the G.W. Bush call for privatizing Social Security, that other Socialist Plot.


    • And Jim, the thing about going after SS is that when push comes to shove the political will isn’t there. They’ll talk a good game and go on as they have for decades, but they will never dare to actually do it . . . (except of course for the bat-shit crazy caucus)
