The GOP’s Misinformation Problem in Action

Robert Costa explains why there are so many Republicans in Congress committed to an effort that is certain to fail:

And so many of these members now live in the conservative world of talk radio and tea party conventions and Fox News invitations. And so the conservative strategy of the moment, no matter how unrealistic it might be, catches fire. The members begin to believe they can achieve things in divided government that most objective observers would believe is impossible [bold mine-DL]. Leaders are dealing with these expectations that wouldn’t exist in a normal environment.

Costa’s explanation seems to be the only way to account for Republican behavior that otherwise makes no sense. Picking an extremely unpopular fight that they are sure to lose doesn’t serve the party’s interests, and it doesn’t even seem to serve the longer-term interests of individual members. The trouble is that the Republicans most eager to have this fight may believe that they can prevail somehow, and they seem to be encouraged in this belief because they are relying on the same sources of misinformation that have served them so poorly in the past.

It is as if no one learned anything from the experience of the party-wide delusion that Romney was going to win the election. Some Republicans are making all of the same mistakes that they made when they ignored all of the evidence suggesting that the GOP was likely to lose in 2012. Most of the time, the echo chamber hurts conservatives and Republicans by making them oblivious to inconvenient facts and ideas, but in this case it is leading them to believe in an alternate political reality with its own set of rules. In that alternative reality, a pointless, self-defeating effort becomes a clever political strategy, and obnoxious and politically toxic tactics are treated as normal and appropriate.

The Supreme Court said that states could opt out of expanded Medicaid dumbass the rest of the law is intact and yes it is a mandate. And just who did Obama decide could ignore the law you damned liar?
The elitists who received the coveted waivers from Obama. Aren't they being allowed to ignore the law by not being required to participate?

How would you describe it?

And why would anyone even want a waiver if ObamaCare is so great?

Hey idiot, did you know that your Congressmen get special subsidy for Obamacare?

A subsidy you idiot do not get?

You idiot have to pay full price, idiot!

If you do not see how idiot you are then you are too idiot to see the difference!

John Boehner is Using Veterans As Human Shields in Government Shutdown Fight

With every strategy that he is trying failing, Speaker John Boehner is trying to deflect blame for the government shutdown by using Americas veterans as political human shields.

In a statement, Speaker Boehner argued that President Obama is hurting our vets:...

Speaker Boehner left out a small, but essential fact. The piecemeal funding for veterans that House Republicans are trying to pass is actually 6.6 billion dollars less than what the budget calls for. Last night, Nancy Pelosi called out this scam on the House floor,So, lets not leave our veterans behind by leaving their children, their grandchildren,[and] their families what they need. And just to go into it, this bill is billions of dollars less than what over 420 Members in this House [of Representatives] passed in June.

John Boehner and the House Republicans are hiding behind the legacy of the people who served our country with honor to avoid the political criticism of their government shutdown. The piecemeal votes that House Republicans are holding are a sham. The Republicans arent trying to fund veterans services. Their goal is to make it appear as if President Obama and the Democrats dont care about veterans. If Republicans really cared about veterans they would not take pass a funding bill that takes $6.6 billion away from our heroes.

It is easy to see through what House Republicans are doing here. Like everything else that House Republicans have tried, John Boehners use a vet as a human shield operation is also doomed to fail.

It's only a tax if you chose not to purchase health insurance. The "individual mandate is a requirement by law that certain persons purchase or otherwise obtain a good or service." Don't you worry, the IRS ALWAYS figures out a way to collect...even from those who don't file income tax or those who have no refund to attach.

Health care was tested at the ballot box twice, then at the Supreme court. The tea bag Republicans lost every time, now instead of accepting that verdict they expect Obama to water down the scheme so its totally ineffective & call that a compromise. Just keep delaying it so it never happens. Then at the same time Fox news of course calls it "The Obama/Reid shutdown" well what would you expect. I'd say let them push it all the way and wait till the mid terms, then they will get another verdict.
BooHoo!

Things are different now, the Repugnants eager to end the Shutdown are growing by the hour.
Bonehead will be forced to allow an up or down vote.
This will be the last gasp of the radicals on the Teabag right.
Saner heads will take over after the Repugnants are humiliated.
