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.

ProPublica released a recording yesterday of children in a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detention facility crying for their parents after being subjected to the tender mercies of the New Cruelty.

The children are distraught, sobbing, inconsolable (not that the Border Patrol agents seem especially interested in consoling them). As ProPublica notes, "They scream 'Mami' and 'Papá' over and over again, as if those are the only words they know." You do not want to listen. But maybe you must.


One Border Patrol agent makes a very amusing joke as he hears all the children crying: "Well, we have an orchestra here [...] What's missing is a conductor."

Can anyone doubt that SS guards made similar jokes as children were unloaded from boxcars?

Mark Sanford is all mopey because he just lost his cushy Congress job after Donald Trump said mean things about him on Twitter. This was not the expected ending of a distinguished career, which involved lying to his constituents as governor about his whereabouts because he was conducting a clandestine affair.
