Supreme Court: Obamacare is Constitutional

Even this far rightwing Supreme Court admitted that President Obama's health care law is CONSTITUTIONAL. It's the "Roberts Court" and he doesn't want to go down in history as the neanderthal who cut health care to millions of Americans including millions of American kids.

Great news for America!
  • Insurance companies can no longer impose lifetime limits on the amount of care you require
  • they can no longer discriminate against children with pre-existing conditions
  • Can't drop your coverage if you get sick
  • Can't jack up premiums for no reason
  • Are required to provide free preventive care like mammograms and checkups
  • 13,000,000 will receive a REBATE next year because insurance companies spent too much on CEO bonuses and not enough on your health care
  • People up to 26 can stay on their parents' health plan
  • Seniors get discounts on prescriptions.

Just for fun, here's how Fox reported the Supreme Court's decision. Only problem -- they got it 100% wrong!

Darrell Issa Admits No Scandal

Admitted car thief and House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R), who has led the witch hunt to desperately attempt to create a non-existent scandal in President Obama's White House, has admitted he has no proof of any such thing. In essence, he revealed that he and Orange John Boner are both liars.

Here's the exchange, from -- of all places, Fox News.

Chris Wallace: Do you have any evidence that White House officials were involved in these decisions, that they knowingly misled Congress, and are involved in a cover-up? 

Car Thief Darrell Issa: No we don't.

The "fast and furious" scheme to let guns get into the hands of Mexican drug lords was begun during the Bush administration, and was actually stopped by US Attorney General Eric Holder. That little fact never seems to get in the way of the Regressive republicans' bizarre conspiracy theory that maintains that it was the Obama administration that purposely allowed automatic assault weapons to be handed to criminals in Mexico so that a sudden surge in gun-related deaths would turn the American public in favor of eliminating the Second Amendment and the confiscation of all firearms. See how crazy this is? They actually believe President Obama purposely gave away guns so that he'd have an excuse to take away everybody's guns.

Let's remember that President Obama has never uttered a word about gun restrictions of any kind. Indeed, he was the one who signed the law allowing guns to be taken into national parks. But all this gun freedom, according to Wayne La Pierre of the National Rifle Association, is to lull you into a false sense of security. According to this nutjob, the fact that President Obama hasn't taken all your guns away is proof that he's going to take all your guns away in his second term.

Republicans Love Obamacare!*

*when his name's not attached to it.

From the Ipsos/Reuter's Poll:

  • 78% of Republicans support banning insurance companies from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions (also supported by 82% of Independents).
  • 86% of Republicans support banning insurance companies from cancelling policies because a person becomes ill (also supported by 87% of Independents).
  • 57% of Republicans support subsidies on a sliding scale to aid individuals and families who cannot afford health insurance (also supported by 67% of Independents).
  •  52% of Republicans favor allowing children to stay on parents' insurance until age 26 (also supported by 69% of Independents).

Willard's Dinner with Hitler Admirers

Hey, how 'bout that $50,000 per plate Willard Romney Hitler Dinner?

We all had to hear the righties whining when George Clooney held a 40k per plate dinner for President Obama, but did he have it at the house of a man who admired Hitler and Hitler's artwork?


Imagine how the rightwing would be screaming if President Obama went to a fundraising dinner at a Hitler admirer's house with Hitler's paintings surrounding -- and looking down on -- the dinner guests!

It's all Corrupt Rupert's channel would have whined about for a week! But not a word about it since Wishy Washy Willard was the guest of honor.

From the Dallas Morning News:

Mitt Romney’s two-day fundraising waltz across Texas begins today in Dallas with a pair of high-dollar events — one for $2,500-givers at the Belo Mansion and for the really big donors – those who cut a check for $50,000 for the GOP or bundle $200,000 from others — dinner with Romney at the Highland Park home of developer Harlan Crow. What better place for Romney to get a Texas-size sense of the American spirit than Crow’s spacious estate.

Crow is quite a collector. His personal library would rival a small college, complete with first editions on American history, several original Gilbert Stewart paintings decorating the walls and, under long glass displays, letters of famous people from Thomas Jefferson to the Wright brothers. Then there’s the room mementos of the principals of World War II – on one wall, a painting by Winston Churchill, on another wall a landscape by Dwight Eisenhower and, on a third wall, two original paintings of a European city scene by Adolph Hitler. On an antique table is a signed copy of  Churchill’s book on fly fishing. Outside, should Romney get an opportunity to wander the grounds, is a garden of tyrants. Crow has collected busts and statues of famous dictators of the past, which he displays with a certain elan on the lawn. There’s a head of Stalin, a rare statue of Fidel Castro, a towering Lenin and various other bad guys expropriated from their countries of origin.

Wisconsin's Rightwing Extremist Gov Survives Recall

Governor Scott Walker may have survived his recall election, but there's great news from Wisconsin today!

One of the Regressive senators has been recalled, and replaced by a Democrat. This means the Wisconsin senate is now controlled by Democrats! And that means Walker's radical far rightwing agenda comes to a screeching halt.

It would have been nice to get rid of this anti-middle class, anti-union radical, but putting Democrats in charge of the Senate was a good move by Wisconsin voters.  And although their governor spent 8 times the amount spent by Mayor Barrett, his Democratic opponent, he didn't win with 8 times the votes.

And exit polling from the very voters who kept Radical Walker in office has clearly shown if they were voting for president today, they'd pick President Obama over Wishy Washy Willard 53% - 42%.

In addition, Walker is the only governor in the country with a CRIMINAL DEFENSE FUND. He knows he's expected to be indicted within days or weeks for his part of the corruption and embezzlement scandals being investigated.

Looking forward to November!
