Candy Crowley's State of the Union this morning with Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA). It seems the Republican line is that Congress needs to have a debate on health care because the public is panicked, confused -- because health care is being denied because of it, because hospitals aren't buying new technology because of it -- because they're making it all up as it goes along. The desperation alone gives them away. At what time were they ever so animated at any question affecting the security of the United States?
Polls seem to show the public does not want this "debate," does not want ACA defunded or delayed.
Congress already had the debate. It passed, it was signed into law, it survived a challenge in the Supreme court.
Health insurance premiums will soar says Sen. John Barrasso M.D. (R-WY). People ae going to die in the streets, chaos will ensue.
They've gone down 40% in his state says Howard Dean M.D. , Doctors won't see patients. You won't be able to find a doctor says the Wyoming dude. The sky is falling, just like it was going to with Social Security, with Medicare, with female suffrage, with integration. . . .
My prayer for this Sunday morning?
God damn the Republican party.
