Republican Do Nothing Party Objects to Working after 2 PM

Posted by politicalpartypooper on March 25, 2010

The title says it all.  Senate Committee meetings were blocked yesterday, several of them having huge national security implications, because Republicans refused to give unanimous consent for their proceedings after 2PM.  So you see, the party that earned the title “The Do-Nothing Congress” has revived its desperate image and is now known as the do-nothing Party.

Congratulations, Republicans!  You get a Political Party Pooper attaboy for sticking to your principles.  I’m glad to see that you are just as averse to actual work as you were four years ago, when America booted your asses out of office for doing nothing the first time. It’s heartwarming to see that your interpretation of working for America is actually based on a sound ethic of laziness.  Hope you enjoyed your siesta.

Tell me, what’s it like to get paid for doing nothing?

    Totally agree. Can a tea-patier defend this. They can, but it will sound like utter BS.

    Face it, Democrats.
    No public option.

    No public option trigger.

    Health insurance companies are going to get FILTHY RICH!!

    Obama SCREWED you! All he cares about is FORCING Americans to give their hard earned money to health insurance companies so they will in turn give it to other politicians for their campaigns.

      We don’t need a Public Option. Without one, insurers will be out of business in a couple of years. We’ve been over this already.

        PPP….those insurance companies are going to thrive…. just like Halliburton.I hope that you are right and I am wrong.

        PS do you have a garden?

        NEW YORK (Dow Jones)–U.S. stocks gained broadly Monday, led by a surge in health-care stocks after Congress passed a sweeping bill overhauling the industry.

        The Dow Jones Industrial Average was recently up 37 points, or 0.3%, at 10778. Boeing, up 2.4%, led the measure after being upgraded to outperform from underperform by Oppenheimer, which cited the company's plans to increase production rates.

        The Dow's pharmaceutical components strengthened, as drug makers are expected to profit from the expansion of health-care coverage. Merck rose 2.2%, while Pfizer climbed 1.8%.

        Offsetting some of the gains, aluminum giant Alcoa fell 0.9% as metals futures declined. Exxon fell 0.4% and Chevron slipped 0.9% as crude-oil prices hovered at about $79 a barrel.

        The Nasdaq Composite rose 0.5% to 2386, while the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index climbed 0.3% to 1164. The health-care sector posted the biggest gain, while energy lagged.

        Health-care stocks rose broadly Monday after the House of Representatives on Sunday voted along party lines to approve a historic health-care overhaul bill promising to bring health insurance to 32 million Americans and dramatically refashioning the industry's regulation.

        Companies including hospital operators, pharmacy benefit managers, and drug and device makers are expected to profit from the bill, which will enroll more people in insurance programs. Meanwhile, most new fees and cost-cutting measures are not seen as a major factor until 2014.

        Hospital operator Tenet Healthcare rose 6.5%, while insurer Cigna gained 1.2% and Express Scripts, a pharmacy benefit manager, rose 2.1%. Pharmaceutical companies also climbed, with Eli Lilly up 1.2% and Bristol-Myers Squibb up 0.7%.

        Wellpoint and United Healthcare are both down $3 from where I borrowed them. I have time; I still think they’ll lose even more. Wellpoint is fairly stagnant, and United is going to tank. If not, they still need big gains to make this bet a loss for me. 😀

    Hi Liberty,

    Can you tell me what these numbers are? 12, 14, 17, 15, 17?

    I’ll tell what they are, they are the pecentages my health insurance have gone up in the last 5 years. That amounts to just over double what it cost 5 years ago. If I could find the emails from my company, I’d give you the increases for the 5 years before that, they were all double digits. My wife works for a company administering benefits, same with that company, all double digit increases.

    Don’t tell me the health insurance industry isn’t already getting rich, aren’t already forcing not just me, but companies to give over their hard earned money.

    And I am lucky, my company is generous and only makes me pay 25%. They employ over 6000 people. Imagine what my company could do with the money if they didn’t have to pay it to the insurance companies, they could invest in projects, equipment, people, and ok…even give it back to the shareholders.

    Repubican: (please) DO SOMETHING RIGHT PARTY

    • Reality Check said

      So Darin,

      Take some time out from jerking off to Hentai porn Which all libtard bloggers do, just check out the freaks with links at other libtard blogs) and make a list of what this asshole hack affirmative action crack head has done right?

      Oh, he just gave you subsidized health care so you can continue drawing cartoons in your Mother’s basement and not have to get a real job.

      SO Darin, what will happen when the top 30% of earners say fuck it and retire? Who is going to pay your bills? Or they move their businesses to Canada or Mexico?

      Make list of what Obama has done right….

        1. No Great Depression Sequel.
        2. No made up wars that costs billions and bankrupt our children.
        3. Nobel Peace prize for being elected and not being assassinated yet.
        4. Healthcare reform bill passed despite huge lies – unfortunately the opposition to it meant that mostly portions benefiting insurance companies got through instead of the stuff that would help people… if you want change it will cost you the price of buying quite a few Senators.
        5. Didn’t shoot anybody in the face.
        6. Social Security hasn’t gone bankrupt yet.
        7. Didn’t “not have sex” with an Intern.
        8. Has not made being an immigrant illegal.
        9. Is returning the US armed forces to places where they can defend America (instead of in the Desert looking for WoMD).
        10. Is trying to change American’s obscene addiction to oil (and blindness at it’s true cost … yes, even the Environment costs money = Gulf of Mexico).

        And by the way, the top 30% wage earners don’t need to make any more money, they’re doing it for the points (yeah, nobody in Japan or Germany works!)

        US Citizens are suffering a poorer quality of life (being sick sucks, breaking your leg or getting a serious disease can ruin your life) and US Companies are less competitive (you think Toyota or Mercedes worry about health care costs rising 25% in 5 years?)

        The Republicans in congress are trying to play politics and get people angry instead of actually trying to pass legislation… (Senators are all wealthy, even the Democrats). For them it’s just a big game (think high school popularity/elections) and I’m constantly surprised at the poor and working class people who are suckered.

        p.s. Stock prices going up and down are most often manipulations and speculation than real wealth being generated. Don’t even get me started on the Pharmaceuticals monopoly… (Search that bus from Canada!)
