I truly wish the Republicans would abandon their effort to replace Abomination Care and let it completely implode. Only then will something get done and maybe involve both sides?

Definitely shows that the swamp creatures all have the same stripes.  And they all love the swamp just the way it has been.   It was inevitable that we would become a "one party" system with all of the neo socialist in power.

Just because we can still cast a ballot for representative government does not mean we are represented.   Even at the lowestlevels of government.

People all over the world VOTE.  But it has no power.

The old tyrant, Tip O'Neil was famous for saying that, "All politics is local."  The quandary America finds itself in now reinforces that adage.

What people such as Rand Paul are doing is putting their reelection efforts ahead of the nation's needs. 

Given that, maybe it's time to let OzBama care rot and die.  It's NOT too late to have that happen and to allow the Dem-Socialist Party to absorb the lion's share of the blame. The VAST majority of Republicans actually have TRIED to repeal that "abortion".  They can still make their case and take credit for their efforts at the polls in November 2018.

Hell, Democrats, before they went into a "Trump" frenzy and imploded, ran almost every single election based on their "good intentions" and not their actual failed record. Maybe Republicans should try it for once.

There could not be a better time to go for it, given the state of confusion and disarray within what used to be a well oiled, disciplined and united Democrat Party.

"Impeach the traitor Donald Trump!"  - Yeah, that's funny.  Keep it up guys.

Huh. I didn't think anyone could have been possibly fooled by that. 

House Republicans passed "repeal" efforts only when they knew the actual repeal COULD NOT HAPPEN. They knew it wouldn't get through the Senate, and they knew they didn't have the veto override. 

Now they have the votes to actually repeal it. There's no longer a veto threat to a repeal bill. And they are afraid to repeal it.

So no, the vast majority of Republicans actually HAVEN'T tried to repeal it.

I did not take you for a fool, Darby. Passing ACA "repeal" while Obama held the veto pen was political theater. It was a charade. How could someone possibly be fooled by that?

Tommy, Tommy, Tommy -  What on God's green earth made you think, even for a New York minute that I was talking about the votes to repeal during OzBama's tenure?

Did I say that? No, I didn't.  What did you think I meant when I said, "They can still make their case and take credit for their efforts at the polls in November 2018."  Do I have to diagram my sentences for you?

I was and still am referring to the vote in the House this year, and the fact that the vast majority of Senators (Republican) have signed on to vote YES right now. Trouble is, holdouts such as Rand Paul are screwing the pooch for the rest of them. (And the nation.)

They should hold the unsuccessful, vote, let Rand Paul prevail, then begin the campaign against the Socialists-Dems for the mess they created.

Please, THINK before you put your comments to print.

I know that the votes during the time OzBama held the veto pen were meaningless.  Not only that, it was childish. Made me ashamed at times to support those fools.

So yes,  the vast majority of Republicans actually HAVE tried to repeal it. They just haven't been allowed the opportunity to cast a vote and from the looks of things, they won't be allowed to.

Like I keep telling you, you take that little insignificant grain of truth and build a complete "virtual" reality around it.

"I did not take you for a fool, Darby."
.
Well, Tommy, I don't take you for a fool either, but I do tend to regard you as rather shallow.

I don't know why I waste my time on you.

You just can't help stepping on your ding a-ling.

Oh, lol, I didn't realize you thought this year's vote was a real attempt. Same theater, only this time they had to stop it before it made it to a Senate vote.

They always have JUST enough votes for it to fail. Amazing. They don't have a sensible replacement, and they know it, so they stall and stall again. They don't care if it makes Trump look like a fool, because most of the elected Republicans already think he's a fool.

Nice touch with the ding-a-ling line. I'M shallow? You can't even wrote a post without including childish insults.

And yet, they didn't have that problem in the House. Strange how that works.  And the Senate had no problem pulling together enough votes to approve Gorsuch's nomination even though the socialists threatened dire consequences.  

Like I said, you take a little fact or two and construct a complete three act play around it.  You really do have a vivid (and active) imagination. 

Funny, I thought the ding-a-ling line was about the best I could do and still get around the ACES censors.

Actually, it's not "childish" at all.  It's a carry over from my military days, although there a four or five letter word is ALWAYS substituted for ding-a-ling. It goes right to the point. I've heard better men than you or I use that phrase. 

It's used to point out a person's failure to get the job done, accomplish his mission or to make his point.

You do that a lot, just as you did misinterpreting what I wrote simply because it didn't fit YOUR narrative. 

Then, rather than admit your mistake, you defend it. Classic!

So, your professional diagnosis is that Senate Republicans have a political death wish with regard to reelection in 2018?

Doesn't make much sense, but still.......
..........very interesting!

Well, based on the way you invoke my name and the names of a few other posters (even when we aren't posting), often within the context of a string of insults about us, it appears that it's because you like to have imagined enemies, and because you like to bully people.
William O. Darby 8 days ago
Yeah, I like to bully people. 

That HAS to be it!

Gary - Tommy's not all bad... he simply suffers from a near terminal case of Trump collusion-delusion. 

It's an itch he just can't scratch enough.

45 billion to go to opiate addiction? Are you kidding me? Ok lets get this straight. We tax gasoline so to have money to fix our roads which we need to survive, but ask all tax payers to cough up 45 billion because some dummy started taking pills, some drug dealer pushed on them Make sense?
No the problem is like Darby says, the people we are electing to office. We must have term limits and get these losers out of office. 
The POTUS has a limit of 8 yrs.
Make it 4 terms for congress, which will be a total of 8 yrs.
2 terms for the senate, thus making them have 12 yrs. and they are done.

Darby , had to start a new thread. Yea, seems he's kinda got a case of the raw arse. Really been on you today, but you know, he's even gone after Dee, one of the nicest people on here. This Trump thing is really got these people in a tangle.

"This Trump thing is really got these people in a tangle."

Hah! In a tangle indeed. You are too kind.  They are all tripping all over each other in their "Stepford Wives" like rush to judgement. 

If Republicans weren't so disorganized themselves, this would be a great opportunity for them.

While the Socialist-Dems are running around, bumping into each other like Keystone Cops, Republicans keep (with limited success) trying to organize a circular firing squad.

If it were not pathetic, it would be downright funny. 

What  IS mildly amusing though is the fact that many Republicans posters on these boards can see the faults and weaknesses of their dipsticks in DC, while the Socialist-Dems can't for the life of them find any fault with their own morons.

It's as if they were digitally programed androids.
