If They Only Had a Heart

Good Democrat. Good boy!

He needs to teach a master class to all of the fake ass Dems we have in office.

More of this, please. Much more. Daily more.

Grayson: Republicans Don't Want You To 'Die Quickly' -- They Don't Care | TPMDC:

"In an interview on the local radio show Doc & Grace in the Morning, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) explained that his comments about Republicans have been twisted into meaning that they somehow want Americans to die -- when the real truth is that they don't care.

'You know, this is being transmogrified into something else,' Grayson complained. 'Honestly, the people I deal with, the people I actually am across the aisle with every day, I don't think they care about ordinary people. I don't think that the Republicans in Congress actually have a heart. I'll be honest with you.'"

Medical tort issues contribute to a mere 1% of all health care costs in this country. Use that one next time some rethug wants to blather about evil trial lawyers putting poor, poor doctors out of business.

Everybody hates a trial lawyer until a doctor removes the wrong breast or testicle.

And, again-again, it is the insurers of malpractice who are breaking the Dr.'s bank.

Medical Malpractice Insurers’ Profits Higher Than Nearly All Fortune 500 Companies � The Washington Independent:
"The American Association for Justice — the trial lawyers’ lobby group — has just released an astounding statistic: medical malpractice insurance companies’ average profits are higher than those of 99 percent of Fortune 500 companies.

As the nation remains mired in a debate over health care reform and how to keep down the costs of expanding coverage, AAJ is trying to point out that Republicans claims that medical malpractice lawsuits are one of the big cost drivers is completely misleading. In fact, though malpractice claims and so-called “defensive medicine” does account for a small percentage of unnecessary costs, medical errors and the astronomical profits of malpractice insurers appear to be a bigger part of the problem."

America haters.

Their hypocrisy makes my blood boil.

But this is such 'fair and balanced' horseshit writing from the Politico.

Dems: GOP rooting against America - Print View:

"During the Bush era, Republicans from Karl Rove to Joe Wilson questioned — in ways both veiled and overt — the patriotism of Democrats who challenged the administration’s Iraq policy, pre-war intelligence and surveillance programs.

But the joyous reaction in some GOP quarters to the International Olympics Committee's snub of Chicago — coupled with the party’s rapid-fire reaction to bad economic data — has some Democrats turning the tables and asking if Republicans are the ones cheering against America now.

Many Democrats saw the outbursts following the IOC decision — the merry Tweets, videos of cheering conservatives and chest-thumping by party leaders like Newt Gingrich — as part of a larger pattern that includes the flirtation of right-wing Texans like Gov. Rick Perry with secession and the caustic tone of right-wing talk radio, embodied by Rush Limbaugh’s “I want him to fail” comment about Obama in January."


Study: Bush administration blocked efforts to prevent housing crisis | Raw Story:

"The study may be the first scientific evidence to back up claims made by many critics that the Bush administration and earlier administrations allowed last year's financial crisis to happen by not enforcing common-sense regulations on lenders."

5 of our SC Judges truly are horrible people. Thomas just does whatever the other 4 tell him to do. No need for questions.
