When We Will Know That the Owners of the Press Have Decided to Rejoin the World of Decent People

A few random comments on their new, improved health care bill:

"Asked in an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation” approximately how many people will lose coverage if the American Health Care Act is passed, Ryan replied: “I can’t answer that question. It’s up to people...“People are going to do what they want to do with their lives because we believe in individual freedom in this country.”

 Paul Ryan considers this "freedom", because Paul Ryan is at best an idiot and at worst a sociopath.

"On NBC's Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd asked Price how he could call the Affordable Care Act a "failing system" if millions of people were being covered under the law.

"Can you say for certain that once this bill is passed that nobody will be worse off financially when it comes to paying for health care?" Todd asked.

"I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we're going through," Price replied. "Understanding that they'll have choices that they can select the kind of coverage that they want for themselves."

Or this:

"Speaking in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence called Obamacare a “nightmare,” and said that Kentucky was a “textbook case of Obamacare’s failures.”

Under Obamacare, the uninsured rate in Kentucky fell from 20.4% to 7.8%.

Now listen: every word the Republicans utter on this subject is a gigantic lie.  We all know this, because we all know that the Republican party intends to take away all of the money which is financing Obamacare, cast tens of millions into the roles of the uninsured, kill tens of thousand of people per year and drive the cost rises of American health care back into screaming overdrive.  And they are going to do it because there is not one single person in the Republican leadership that gives a God damn about the fate of our country; they are all nothing but corrupt members of a criminal conspiracy which exists solely to rob the rest of us into poverty and near slavery, in order to enrich a few hundred families that pay to spread their lies for them and keep them in office.

That is all, and I mean all, there is to report about this story, and the story of every other piggish, monstrous thing the Republican party does.  When the day comes that the "liberal" press starts reporting the news in this manner, i.e. telling the truth, I will consider believing that they exist to fulfill their supposed purpose, and not just to be collaborators in the gigantic, century long plot by Republicans to remake this country as a third world dictatorship.
