Republicans have enjoyed themselves immensely during the Affordable Care Act’s bungled rollout, but most of the claims they’re making are preposterous
and phony. Since anyone able to take a longer view knows we’ll one day be well past Obamacare’s self-inflicted wounds, I’d like as a public service to catalog the GOP’s shabbiest arguments, so we’ll all have a handy reference once the worm fully turns.
JUST ONE EXCEPTION:
RIP-OFF POLICIES THAT IF YOU GOT REALLY SICK WOULD ACTUALLY DUMP YOU AND BANKRUPT YOU — WHICH HAS TRAGICALLY HAPPENED TO HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TRUSTING AMERICANS — THOSE JUNK POLICIES WILL, AT LONG LAST, BE TOTALLY EXPOSED AND OUTLAWED!
This isn’t an article about how Republicans shut down the government because they hate that the President is black. This is an article about how racism caused the government to shut down and the U.S. to teeter on the brink of an unprecedented and catastrophic default.
The roots of the current crisis began with the New Deal — but not in the way you might think. They grew gradually, with two big bursts in the 1960’s and the 1980’s reflecting decades of more graduated change. And the tree that grew out of them, the Tea Party and a radically polarized Republican Party, bore the shutdown as its fruits.
Never before in American history have we seen a political party so completely dominated and controlled by its extremist wing; and never before have we seen a political party that brings together the attributes of nihilism, heartlessness, radicalism and naked partisanship quite like the modern GOP. In a two-party system like America’s, the result is unprecedented dysfunction.
Kids locked up in nursing homes. Leaky sewers. Mosquitoes unleashed. The Sunshine State has buyer’s remorse. Florida is where the rhetoric becomes the reality. It’s kind of the tea party on steroids. Support for Scott and the GOP is plummeting as Floridians see anti-government governance at work. But it may be too late for buyer’s remorse. After two years at the helm, the tea party’s legacy is likely to far outlast the movement. More
President Obama has announced his plan to better protect our children and our communities by reducing gun violence in America.
Take a look at the President’s plan to reduce gun violence, and stand with him in support:
Stand With The President
What can be said without equivocation is that Obama has proven himself morally, intellectually, temperamentally, and strategically. In our lifetime, or our parents’, he is easily the best president. On his own terms, and not merely as a contrast to an unacceptable alternative, he overwhelmingly deserves reelection... This is Why
Unions make the middle class strong by ensuring workers have a strong voice in both the market and in our democracy.
But as unions became weaker over the past four decades, they are less and less able to perform these functions–and the middle class withered.
When unions are strong they are able to ensure that workers are paid fair wages, receive the training they need to advance to the middle class, and are considered in corporate decision-making processes. Unions also promote political participation among all Americans, and help workers secure government policies that support the middle class, such as Social Security, family leave, and the minimum wage.

“There has never been in my lifetime, since we got rid of the poll tax and all the Jim Crow burdens on voting, the determined effort to limit the franchise that we see today.”
