DON'T FRIGGEN BLINK!

Now Rand Paul is calling out to Republicans to vote straight repeal, just like they did in 2015!

He went on to taunt them saying that they need to be called out if they aren't consistent with the 2015 vote.

So calling your congressperson and stating you are against it is fine, and should be done.

But let Rand go down this path, taunt him and others, they know it is a losing proposition but want it both ways. They want to appear they are for straight repeal but want others to give them an out.

1. A repeal would need 60 votes to get to a floor vote.

They ain't there. There aren't even 50. Repeal ain't happening in this Congress.

2. Look at how HARD the GOP works to TAKE our healthcare away from us.

For 8 yrs they hardly worked, at all.

Now they are willing to do away with vacations, and why?

To take our fucking healthcare. I do NOT know how we are not ALL very very very very mad, VERY mad.

I mean
FUCK

3. Oh, we've been mad as hell. Today, though, it looks

like the Republicans have failed in their attempt to cause the deaths of millions of Americans. We should reward them by electing Democrats to fill all of their seats.

5. Agreed. I do wish someone would explain to me, on a different topic,

how the president doesnt pardon everybody who is guilty of anything.

Including himself.

Making testimony of people like Jr. and Manafort moot, they will just lie, he will pardon them.

7. Personally, I think he'd do that at his own peril, really.

There are plenty of Republicans who dislike him intensely. Such a pardon might well lead to an impeachment and removal, despite party loyalty. The only way he could get away with it would be to issue the pardons and immediately resign. He can't really pardon himself, but Pence would do it if asked, as long as Trump handed over the keys to the White House.

8. Even if we didnt have to worry about the alt left fucking things up in 2018, I still say

we did not have an election that I can support nor should any of us.

That election was stolen, it was fraudulent, and we are not even talking about the fact that the results of it are not acceptable.

OK, so there is no mechanism in the Constitution, I get that. But this is not acceptable.

Nope.

6. As of the last count, they had only 46 votes to repeal.

With John McCain recovering from surgery, the measure has failed to prosper entirely.

Personally, I consider this a day of quiet celebration. Quiet, because there will be some other horror to observe before long.

9. Very quiet, but yes. Trump WH is doing everything they can to unfund ACA and

cause disruption.

I am so fucking sick of having half of the country trying to kill me on a daily basis.
