3. What 'blue' state didn't expand Medicaid?

Offhand, I can't think of one, although you say you live in one that didn't.

12. Virginia, with slimy Third Way governor, Terry McAuliffe,

just broke his promise to expand Medicaid unilaterally for 400,0000. Only 25,000 will be eligible. Of course, his promise was hugely publicized, but the reversal was quietly on the back pages.

Virginia was never going to get real Medicaid expansion with this DLC corporate snake in office. Those of us who have followed McAuliffe's career from the time he was the head of the DLC predicted that he would break his promises and the major expansion would never materialize. And we were right.

His campaign and term *began* with bald-faced lies. He campaigned on very specific promises including pushing the expansion by writing it into his own budget. As soon as he got into office, he changed his mind and decided that a letter to Republicans, with a plea for them to work with him on legislation instead, would suffice. And the Kabuki continued from there, consistent with the rest of his sleazy Third Way record:

McAuliffe abandons promise; 25,000 rather than 400,000 will get medical insurance

Regardless, Beverly, who said she's good at reading people, said she had her doubts about McAuliffe's pledge.

"Right now I'm reading that it's just a big show," she said.


Terry McAuliffe is a Third Way liar

Yes, Terry McAuliffe has a sleazy as hell financial history.

4. Sounds like you should be angry at your state for denying you Medicaid.

You do know that, right?

13. It's funny to the Third Way.


And IMO we should find it fascinating and very telling that they are being so ostentatious about letting us know it:

I shouldn't have followed your link. Some people are very grumpy right now because last week's GOP rout puts their very fugly, 3-legged pony at risk of becoming a 2-legged pony or being sent to the glue factory.

Best to avoid the topic altogether right now.

9. Very wise and

thoughtful response. I should have a sign in front of my PC saying, warning do not respond until you have taken a deep breath & calmed down. It may keep me out of trouble.

10. Remember...

If they had been Republicans in GD they would demean you and say, "Fuck you! I got mine".

But they are Democrats, and so they showed you sympathy and they understand how fucked up the situation is and in their hearts they feel your pain.

Because Democrats care.

11. No you aren't. DU isn't stupid, and I suspect it's going exactly as planned...

The corporate exploitation of the ACA has been thoroughly laid out in two previous threads. Nothing in that thread is putting effective lipstick on that corporate pig.

It's the MO of the Third Way to come back after a topic has devastated them and throw out all their disingenuous talking points in a new thread, again and again, until people are just tired of debunking their garbage.

Perhaps you even knew that...

14. Locking

Host consensus is that this violates the SOP for the lounge. It is pulling a political topic into the lounge and complaining about DU.

Sorry.
