ALL 300 or so, unanimously, all 300 Republican congressmen and senators voted ON PRINCIPLE? Not one single dissenting vote? All men and women of principle? Are you finished with your unfunny jokes? To vote so that, at minimum, 55 million + non health insured get some kind of coverage is a principle? Well, I'll be.<quoted text>
Some republicans actually do stand on principle over party Jacque, and would never in a million years vote to force taxpayers or Christians to pay for the killing of an innocent, unborn human life, or to advance socialism that gives the state so much power to interfere with the lives and liberty of a free people. There are exceptions to that in the republican party I admit, but they are more like democrats from the fifties then the radicals today who never fail to put party over the will of the people. Even democrat Bart Stupak had to be lied to and bought off to get this terd of a piece of legislation that very few read and understood before passing. Interesting that as the roll out continues to unravel, that just weeks after the republicans tried to get the individual mandate extended, like the corporate side was granted, we see red state democrat senators up for re-election calling for what the republicans were accused of being unreasonable for trying to negotiate. One of them even said the president needed to man up. Pretty outrageous by your standards. Also, I remember the president being the one who stated that he refuses to negotiate. No hypocrisy there now, is there.
Innocent, unborn fetus, you say. That is your opinion, to be respected I guess. My opinion is I don't know at which point the fetus is a human being. Do you? What do you rely on to establish it as such? 1st century medical journals? As I said, I don't know, so even though I am basically opposed to abortion for reasons other than yours, I declare myself free choice.
You talk of democrats changing their minds as elections approach. Of course, they are vile politicians just like the rest of them. But tell me, what about those "principled" republicans voting UNANYMOUSLY against obamacare, a near-exact copy of Romney's Mass. health care law? Waiting.
