Yep, because giving an egomaniac who hasn't accomplished a damn thing besides stealing and having the rule altered for a supreme court pick is more important than anything else--mainly, the wellness and health of the American people.

Seriously, I get that Republicans are "damned if you do, damned if you don't." But doesn't one of those options involve you looking like you took your time, did hearings, and reports to show that you tried to come up with something good? Instead of something where sexual assault is a pre-existing condition.

Someone should put a bullet in Paul Ryan's head.

He'd be fine. He and his friends get to keep the best parts of Obamacare in their plan.  :)

Man, Paul Ryan looks so happy. He's never been this close to finally realizing his dream of making healthy people sick, sick people dead, poor people poorer, and rich people richer.

Good for you, you immoral, hypocritical piece of human trash.

I hate that politics has become such a sport that people are so faithful to their "side", that even when one party does something that can't possibly be categorized as anything other than "We're doing this for our megarich corporate friends"--AND SING WHILE THEY DO IT--people will still find ways to support it.

Well; you know Republican Conservatives guy, that's basically just who they are.

The Democrats were the ones singing because Republicans were voting against what their constituents wanted. As people lose their insurance, a lot of people are going to lose their seats.


This was a big mistake that will have enormous economic and political ramifications for any future agendas. At least the rich people get to keep theirs, though. All of them are rich because they worked hard and the market decided they should keep their benefits.

Yeah, let's go to the Rose Garden and lie some more while we strip healthcare from millions upon millions!!! And apparently...crates of beer are being wheeled in. IT'S NOT EVEN A LAW, YOU ASSHOLES!!!

Seriously, I bet you 9/10ths of the Republicans who voted for this have no damn clue what the hell is in it.

And here is a list of some of the stuff this bill does to make everyone who isn't rich lives much worse. And this isn't even a complete list.

Oh, I must have misread the reports earlier.

The DEMOCRATS were singing? While a vote was kicking their ass?

God, what morons.

Keep in mind that the bill has to clear the Senate first. House Republicans are OK with ramrodding this through because they know the Senate is going to alter and send it back.

Yes. Did you read what I typed or what? They're pissed the vote passed but happy because Republicans just nuked their own constituents and jeopardized all of their majorities.

They're idiots, and this signifies why they are losers. They have a loser's mentality. They think getting their asses beat is good for them? For one thing, this makes them look TERRIBLE in the press. They are literally SINGING while their constituents lose their health coverage. They aren't treating it as the somber, awful moment it is. They're playing around about it. They aren't taking it seriously. How out of touch is that?

Beyond that, gerrymandering will keep the majority of these Representatives in power. Well that and the fact that most people who vote for Republicans care less about healthcare than they do with voting for people who hate brown people like they do.
