    If you're going to stereotype - you forgot the pack of Camels (legit his favorite, IIRC). Justin Sayin, reporting. I wonder if that's what he offered Obama during the 2016 WHCD sketch.

    But let's be honest - Boehner and Obama are both cracking up, whether it's from a living room in suburban Cincy, or a windsurfer in Maui.

    The very, very sad part is that America now considers the two of them to be "sanity".

    Wanna cite that? I mean, if this was righty BS, we would agree without question, but it's not.

    It's that kind of world now, dx.

    Because he didn't stamp out the Cro-Magnon wing of the party when they rose up. He is to blame.

    Cite what? My claim to my claims?

    I have no idea where they are. Or whether I posted them or said it during a holiday political debate.

    McConnell is the one who vowed to ensure obama failed when elected..he wasn't shy about that. For that, he's party over county and a POS

    The rot had already progressed too far. Boehner could have put down the orcs by building cross-party with Obama and the Dems, but Rush and Fox and those morons had already burned that ground for 20 years.

    If anybody is to blame, other than that scum I mean, it's Newt. Newt is a B minus student but that makes him a towering genius among Republicans, and he should have seen the writing on the wall when they couldn't stop The Sorcerer's Apprentice to save themselves in 96. But he was weak and cowardly, the way conservatives have been for 30 years now, so he let the rot get a good hold on the party. And so what happened to the Dems in 68 is happening now to the GOP, and for the same reason: you can't civilize the Dixiecrats. If you take them on board you have to keep them in the stable and beat them once a day and twice on Sunday. It's all they can understand.

    Nevada closing in on Medicaid for all for universal access to insurance. Bad news: Republican governor needs to sign it. Good news: western state, so potential sanity.

    Hearings only matter for a week or so. They need a cute 8-10 year old blond haired girl in the Midwest to die because she couldnt afford the Epi-Pen...then they will "care" again.

    And the Liberals are just as much to blame...its why I will never support sellouts like Booker.

    I like it. This is what Dems should be pushing for right now. Looking back on the lessons learned from the ACA this is how the program should continue to transition. In fact it should be one of the main or even only policy issue they run on in 2018 in state contests beyond the obvious "Trump Sucks!!!" strategy. Best part is you really don't need a federal law to enact these changes.

    Oh goody...no offense but that means nothing to me. Booker is great in his role but if the Dems put him up for President they will have another Clinton like debacle on their hands. (made only worse because he is Black so the Obama Derp will be back) You dont get to talk about how much you care about Health Care and support a guy who sold out Health Care.

    You always talk about how you want True Believers out of the GOP...well I want that from the Dems. I want someone who wont sell out their values because it doesnt poll high or because Big Pharma donated money to their campaign. If I want to vote for corporate shills and sellouts I would vote Republican...at least they dont hide that they would sell their mothers for a $10k donation.

    (and yes I would obviously "do the right thing" but plenty of people wouldnt)
