re: For the core Trump supporters AHCA fail was a BIGLY win. I don't get the gloating. - Mephistopheles
[quote] A few months later, republicans shelve a shitty bill and it's the apocolypse. [/quote] Trump failed on one of his biggest promises. He actually said day 1 repeal. What's more important is that this shows he not only had no grasp of the complexity of the law he wanted to repeal, nor the ...

re: The GOP now owns this! - Mephistopheles
[quote]Honestly I'm kind of shocked the GOP didn't have any better option than what they did.[/quote] I'm not. I saw the plan Ryan put together before this. It did make slightly more sense, but it was something that would obviously cause a shite ton of problems for a lot of people to give a small ...

re: Senate passes removal of internet privacy protections - Mephistopheles
The alt right melt over the ICANN thing was bizarre. It was so fervent I didn't really comment/argue it with people because I figured I must've been confused as to what ICANN does. But nope, it's the IP/DNS assigners. It's like arguing about what font to use on road signs or something. ...

re: Spicer on "Why vote if you don't have the votes" - Mephistopheles
[quote]Do you think AHCA will stop the death spiral yes or no.[/quote] Stop? The AHCA is the death spiral. The GOP have done exactly what they incorrectly gave Obama credit for, designing a healthcare law likely to quickly cause an insurance collapse. ...

re: The disaster of Trumpcare explained in charts. - Mephistopheles
[quote] It almost seems as if the government should play no role at all in health insurance, as both the Dem and Rep plans just screw everything up. [/quote] Your kid needs approx $1m worth of treatment this year. Life or death. The mother died young. Your workplace no longer offers insurance...

re: Was Comey the source of the Micheal Flynn leak? - Mephistopheles
Because the Dems would be delighted with him and don't much care, whereas the republicans were shitting themselves and couldn't think of a single way to get Comey to publicly reduce the scope of the potential collusion or of the investigation into it. Donwvote. ...

re: Republicans pile on last-second sweeteners before House vote - Mephistopheles
I believe this means the house then has to pass it to see what is in it. And with that I call full house, the republicans have now done or are legislating towards everything they complained about with the ACA: throat ramming, subsidies, will increase premiums and healthcare costs, not free market...

re: FBI Director Comey confirms the bureau is investigating Russian election interference - Mephistopheles
[quote]Just so I'm understanding correctly. The FBI is investigating whether anyone in the Trump organization colluded with the Russians to sway the election, but at no point did the government surveil Trump or anyone at Trump Tower? Seems legit. [/quote] The FBI "has no evidence that" t...

re: FBI Director Comey confirms the bureau is investigating Russian election interference - Mephistopheles
[quote]Fact: democratic obsession with this "interference" is an implicit confession that they simply cannot conceive in their minds the idea that voters chose the other side. They can't comprehend the idea that the other side is viewed by voters as legitimate[/quote] Look if it's what keeps ...
