    Are these idiots really that tyranical or are they just stupid? I think both. And is anyone in the media going after him for suggesting that the money should go to anything but aid for the oil spill vicitims? What a greedy backstabbing little FUCK!!

    Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.): "I think we had to have someone say this is where you can go without limiting your criminal liability or civil liability. For instance, the question is brought up, pay for all of the health care for the people in the Gulf. No, but I think those who lost their job, then lost their health care would be legitimate."

    hmmm....say an oysterman loses his business because of the oil spill and can no longer afford health care. Then he has a heart attack and needs immediate attention and therapy.

    Why would that not be a legitimate claim against BP?

    Your headline is misleading, Willow...but it is no surprise that none of the other "conservatives" called you on it.

    Case in point. This idiot thinks he is talking about someone not a victim of the oil spill.

    And then of course Dud jumps on the bandwagon.

    Then, let's say that monkeys fly out his butt and he needs even more therapy?

    BTW, nobody ever loses their "health care", per se...They only make a choice as to whether they'll keep up the payments to the third party to pay for any health services that they may receive.

    But who ever expects honest semantics form socialist do-gooders?

    Loses their ability to pay for health care.

    Why would that not be a legitimate claim against BP?

    I'm also really having a hard time seeing how making someone pay for what they damaged as being socialism.

    No, they only lose the ability for someone else to pay for services rendered.

    But it comes as no surprise that such an elementary distinction needs to be 'splained to you.
