    Think Progress » Cantor To Uninsured Woman With Growing Tumors: Get ‘An Existing Government Program’ Or Find Charity

    Article title too big for Title.

    Eric Cantor who in his first health care town hall meeting had some interesting comments to say the least. After reading them, it is quite obvious why he didn't have any town hall meetings in the first place.

    Watch it:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfVAJ3Wh67U&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - Cantor To Uninsured Woman: Get An "Option" Like Charity Or Govt Program[/ame]

    All I can say is:

    $owl_orly.jpg

    You mean those same Government programs that you and the rest of the GOP are attempting to cut Mr. Cantor? How about medicare? We all know the GOP's attempting at cutting or even attempting to eliminate that. Plus, you and I both know quite well about how in this economy that these charity organizations are already likely pushing their limit. So once again, Cantor shows how he is full of no solutions and rather points to the same Government programs that he and the rest of his buddies in congress are attempting to cut.

    Classic Double Think at it's finest and bullshitting. :clap2:

    How is the GOP able to do any of that? The Dem party is in complete control like we haven't seen for decades. The GOP is completely powerless. They can't "cut" anything, can't pass anything, cannot even change anything.

    The Dems have ALL the power, and all they can do with it is whine?

    It doesn't matter what repugs say, do or how they vote. The Dems don't need any of their votes or support to do anything they want to do.

    The Dems are useless, HOWEVER do not sit there and bullshit me. The GOP has been attempting to slash Medicare for YEARS and in July Cantor called Medicare a good example of how bad the Government is in health care.

    If the GOP were in the position the Dems were, you can bet your ass they would be attempting to slash Medicare again if they thought they could get away with it.

    The Dems are useless because they have no spines you fucking idiot. You call me a partisan hack? Did you not just fucking realize I called them useless? What kind of compliment would that be? IF ANYONE here is a partisan hack it is you. I loved how at first you liked to bullshit that you were a Democrat or a Liberal, that's one of the biggest bullshit tales I've ever seen.

    Spineless? They have ALL the power! They can do whatever they fucking WANT! If they DON'T, whose fault is it? NOT the opposition!

    Blame-shifting is ALL you mindless Obamaphile robots can do.

    BLAAAAAMMMMEE The Republicans, even though we have ALL the power and don't NEED any of their support or votes!

    :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Mindless idiot! Even READING "Think Progress" brands you as a partisan hack of the cheapest and stupidest order!

    You know, it sounds good, but there are issues.

    First, the Republican Party has a lot of power because they are nearly all one race and religion. The means they basically vote in lockstep.

    Second, the Democratic party is a "coalition". Those groups all have to form a consensus to work together. One of those groups is the very conservative, "Blue Dogs" which should probably belong to the Republican Party. Except the current Republican Party has been hijacked by an extreme religious right radical element.

    Third, there is an entire network dedicated to propaganda and undermining this country. It's called Fox. For some unknown reason, they want this country to fail. They have frightened many Americans with talk of "death panels" and "unplug grandma" that people now believe that the government will somehow "get them".

    Fourth, the news isn't getting out. Recently, on nightly news, the commentator was talking about the drug industry. The numbers were something like, 220 billion in revenue and from that revenue 70 billion in advertisement and 32 billion for researching new drugs. The rest is profit.

    Fifth and finally, Republicans have publicly stated that they want this president to fail, this health care will be his "Waterloo" and ....

    So when Republicans say, "Democrats have all the power", it because the situation is difficult to understand when one has a limited intellect. They just assume the Democratic Party is just like the Republican Party. But it isn't.

    They have NO power.

    They have NO power at all! What about that is hard to understand?

    ALL the Dems need do is make their shit palatable to all members of their caucus, and the repugs be DAMMED! There is NOTHING repugs can do to stop the Dems from doing anything they want to do!

    ONLY the Dems can stop themselves! If shit doesn't get done it is STRICTLY on them! NO ONE else is to blame!

    You know, for someone who is acting like a partisan hack, you seem to not be looking at the bigger picture. Dems have all the power, however they won't use it. In fact, their not using it will end up being one of the reasons why they are voted out eventually. That, or they spend their time with power on issues like Joe Wilson which is fucking useless.

    I'm not blaming the Republicans, HOWEVER they want back in power. A party that has no solutions is not a viable party to be in power. The only reason they are a viable party to people is because the Dems are complete fuckups. I like to ask how one can be partisan if they have a dislike of both sides, is that your double think or just pure blindness on the issue?

    I "read" Think Progress and I "read" Fox News daily. In fact, I have linked articles from Fox News several times. Other times, I have linked Fox News stories to friends because they post some hilarious ones of stupid people.

    So because I also read "Fox News" I guess that makes me a Republican partisan? Get over yourself Midnight, honestly. Just because someone "reads" a news site doesn't make them a partisan. HOWEVER, if they take what is on the article as TRUTH WITHOUT EVIDENCE, then they are partisan. However, THIS article was relaying the transcript of the conversation in the video. No way for it to be taken out of context.

    Stop being butthurt over Obama winning, I don't even really support the guy anymore, so emote elsewhere.

    Also, for the record, you seem to ignore the blue dog Democrats. As I have previously pointed out, not even a majority of Democrats consider themselves Liberal. So a Liberal proposal being offered up is not going to find open arms with every single person in Congress that has a D next to their name. To assume so is ignorance and branching all the Democrats under one complete belief system. It would also to be ignorant to assume all Republicans in Congress are Gay Bashers who cannot control spending if they tried because they're blowhards because they have a couple in Congress who are exactly that.

    Come back to reality when you feel like it.
