re: Failing NYT: GOP in 2016 benefited from Gerrymandering. - Bluefin on 6/25/17 at 9:27 am
I love when Democrats complain about gerrymandering and want the courts to do something about it, but they can't be bothered to vote in their local elections and elect state representatives who actually have control over this sort of thing. Democratic state legislatures draw district lines that b...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Has Anyone Been To The 9/11 Museum? - Bluefin on 6/22/17 at 2:13 pm
Went last year. What an experience. I'd recommend to anyone thinking of going - don't plan on doing much else that day. Everyone we went with was completely emotionally drained by the time we left. Going to grab drinks on a rooftop afterward on a sunny day just didn't feel the same, but it's...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

[quote] Rand Paul should just write the whole fricking thing and everyone else should get out of the way.[/quote] He did write a replacement bill.

[quote]Consensus: what is the fricking point if it's not a conservative bill and transfers ownership of the debacle to the GOP?[/quote] McConnell just needs 50 votes.

re: Read the Senate GOP’s ObamaCare repeal bill - Bluefin on 6/22/17 at 10:31 am
My quick technical run through (The Medicaid portion is considerably large): - Premium subsidies follow a similar structure as the ACA, but cut off subsidies at 350% of poverty. ACA bronze plans will be used as the benchmark. (Democrats will claim is an attack on the poor and elderly.) - Ex...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
