GOP Rep. To Supreme Court: If You Like Obamacare So Much, Why Don't You Gay Marry It?
After the Supreme Court saved Obamacare, AGAIN, most Republicans were more or less content to stomp their feet, shake their tiny fists of fury, repeat their five-year-old warnings that expanded healthcare access will destroy America (any day now, you'll see!), and have themselves a good cry. And we drank of their tears, and enjoyed them ever so.
But Texas Republican Rep. Brian Babin, who is, apparently, seven years old, is not content to merely sulk in a corner and fart vague threats from his face hole about how his party still plans to repeal Obamacare (any day now, you'll see!). He's seeking revenge:
As the Supreme Court continues to ignore the letter of the law, it’s important that these six individuals understand the full impact of their decisions on the American people. That’s why I introduced the SCOTUScare Act to require the Supreme Court and all of its employees to sign up for Obamacare. By eliminating their exemption from Obamacare, they will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with!
It hardly seems worth mentioning the unfairness of Babin's bill to Justice Antonin Scalia, who wrote in his dissent, with which Justices Alito and Clarence concurred, that the majority's ruling is "jiggery-pokery" and "pure applesauce" that proves "words no longer have meaning." They were perfectly willing to death panel Obamacare, so perhaps Babin should amend his bill to exclude the dissenters from his cruel and unusual punishment?
Thus far, none of the Republican presidential candidates have expressed support for Babin's punitive but novel "solution" to Obamacare. They are all too busy condemning the Court's decision and promising when they are president, they will kill the damn thing themselves and replace it with an alternative that does everything Obamacare does, only better. How? Besides "competition" and "free market"? Well, they'll figure that part out later.
