Mitch McConnell Accidentally Says What He Thinks About Poors and Uninsureds

News


Here’s something fun about Thursday’s Supreme Court Ruling (which, in case you have been living on Mars in a cave with your fingers in your ears, upheld the Affordable Care Act): it has gotten certain Republicans (like *cough* Mitch McConnell *cough*) so upset that they are going on the teevee and ACTUALLY SAYING WHAT THEY THINK. Like: who gives a damn about uninsured people? And: why would we actually need a PLAN to help them? And the worst part about it is that it was Fox News and not the librul media that tricked him into saying it, specifically, Chris Wallace, who should know better by now than to ask questions.

First Chris Wallace reminds Mitch McConnell that Obamacare provides health insurance to 30,000,000 uninsured people and then he asks him what the GOP would do to replace it and provide universal coverage, and the answer is THE FREE MARKET, DUH, because what do you think this is, Europe? (Srsly.) This is AMERICA, and we spend money to protect people from TERRORISM and other nonspecific military threats. If people die of something besides terrorism or war, well, that's their problem.

Yr Wonkette has been getting quite a few visits from trolls lately, although most of the infestations have been incredibly tiresome and not at all worth discussing here. We're talking, like, not even as good as ol' Turgid Love Muscle Guy. Come to think of it, we haven't seen him in a while; hope he's OK. At least health-wise.

In 2006, Bob Casey Jr., then the Pennsylvania state treasurer, defeated Rick Santorum and took his seat in the US Senate; presumably only after having it steam cleaned. Not that Casey wanted anything much to do with Dan Savage, the columnist who had helpfully made the alternative definition of "Santorum" one of the best demonstrations of the power of trolling for the prior three years. But in '06, Casey's campaign actually declined a donation from Savage; Casey's finance director thanked him, but suggested maybe Savage could give the money to a group working against Santorum so Casey wouldn't get flak for taking the donation. That was back when Dems were happy to talk about civil unions but frightened of gay marriage, and Casey just plain wussed out on the chance to bring a "weeks-long debate about feces, lube, and assfucking" to the Senate race, as then-Wonket Dave Weigel put it. But Bob Casey has come rather a long way since then, and he now supports marriage equality. He might still be a bit shy about a full-on embrace of buttsechs talk, however.
