Last week right after the epic failure of the Billionaire Protection Act healthcare destruction TV ads ran in several heavily Rethuglican markets, celebrating the defeat of Obamacare that most definitely did not happen.  Yet.

 

...hours after the decision, television ads aired reflecting a different reality. As television viewers watched their favorite basketball teams compete in the NCAA Sweet 16, a series of ads ran in Republican-leaning markets, encouraging people to call their representatives to thank them for repealing the Affordable Care Act and replacing it with “a better health care you deserve.”

 

 

Washington Post

 

It was unintended, of course.  The Republicans only wanted to celebrate because they expected to succeed in robbing the poor to give to the rich.

 

If you don't hate the Republican party, what the fuck is wrong with you?

I'm on a Republican Party sucker list.  I've gotten a lot of phone calls from them.  I pick up the phone -- and Trump's voice blasts away at me, urging me to help him replace Obama Care.  It's been strange.

That would bother me, a lot.  I'd have to block their number to prevent being quite, er, frank with them over the phone about my estimation of their political party.  There is an appropriate time to be angry and as a response to Republican flavored holy hatred it seems very well justified.

There are advantages.  Sometimes, I need to know that I'm not the crazy one.

If I had suffered due to lack of health insurance I might hate the GOP (Republican Party). I disagree with their policies and thinking.

Wealthcare or Fatcatcare are good descriptions of GOP aims regarding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The non-rich should have got the message from the name of the Act. Perhaps calling it Obamacare helped demonize it in some minds?

In my case, they keep attacking my legal rights and demonizing me to whip up their muggles.  I mind that quite a bit.  And of course their homophobia is just one plank in their authoritarian, conformist platform for theocracy. Teh gays are not the only minority they seek to persecute.  They attack other perfectly decent people like women, Muslims,and  people that are not even white.

 

Then there is the xenophobia, another case in which they fail dismally at comprehending reality.  This should not be a surprise given their hostility to facts.

"Trump Care" wasn't a big hit.
