Good grief, this is why I could never identify myself as a Republican. Sure, I agree with more Republican policies than Democrat. But my goodness, it
seems the majority of them have left the station of sanity and are well integrated into crazy town.
I have lost an incredible amount of respect for the bulk of Republicans, particularly the leadership. Not because of these fun stats, but because of
the way they have handled themselves throughout this entire process, shoot since the election. Yes, they got asses handed to them, accept it. The
answer to regaining a majority and/or the White House is not to stomp around like a two year old. The fact that not a single Rep. voted in favor of
the bill tells me it was solely a political move, especially considering the amount of Rep additions to the bill. The fact that every single governor
that plans to contest the bill is also Rep also tells me this is politically motivated. There is no doubt that health reform is necessary, the
current system just considering medicare/medicaid is unsustainable.
I am also tired of Republican talk radio hosts blatantly lying and slandering members of the Dem party including the President. Just an example,
Michael Mendev had a campaign where you sent an e form letter to your rep stating that you do not want Obamacare and was stating how you could be part
of this historic change, bring forth change, change, change, change. All he was attempting to do was maintain the status quo, so quit using Obama's
Granted, I believe that both parties are dirty and corrupt, however if I had to take a guess as to who was drawing checks from the insurance lobby,
I'd bet on the Republicans.
