Faux News Commentator: Health Care Cuts, Who Cares, We are Going To Die Anyway.

http://crooksandliars.com/2017/06/fox-news-talker-fine-trumpcare-were-all

snip:

Eric Bolling kicked off the fun by pooh-poohing Bernie Sanders' correct claim that thousands will die under the Senate version of Trumpcare.

To which young Kennedy Montgomery shrugged, informing the audience that "we're all going to die."

Great logic. Let's get of landing gear for planes, seat belts for cars, inspection of food or medication, safety ratings of Nuclear Plants, lifeboats on Cruise Ships, or functioning stoplights.

Lack of empathy or compassion seems to be a common characteristic among a large number of them.

He's right who cares .. Repeal it! Dems boycott the vote! What would happen if we (dems) flipped the narrative, stop with the cry stories, we care ,they dont! Were just feeding the beast, the republiKan machine of hate -- they love the bleeding God awful real stories , the more morbid the better..so lets say we flip the narrative call their bluff..say repeal it already, you've been threatening for 9 yrs .do it. In the chamber all dems get up and say repeal repeal it! Then walk out! Or pass it, pass the mean bill. Do both! Who the hell cares! Then walk out, boycott, then on all media outlets ...repeal/pass, blame the rebupubliklans and eltrumpf ...it's theirs, they own it ! Call their bluff. I bet if we flipped the narrative, theyd do the opposite, theyd be for the ac a. Just to spite us.

among people who previously did not seek healthcare after 4-5 years with insurance. 6 out of every 100! HUGE!

Wish someone on Fox would be stupid enough to reveal the ultraright-wealthy belief that the nation would be better off with those people dead.

I hope her parents have plenty of resources and someone else they can count on besides her.

She's a Gen-Xer who downs wingnut Kool-Aid despite growing up through the Reagan/Bewsh years and all the hardship that came with them.
