GOP Health Care Snapshot

On the surface, we see House Minority Leader John Boehner flanked by House Republicans speaking about the healthcare reform bill. Actually though, we see the Republicans looking cartoonish in more ways than one.

Cartoonish in more ways than one.

    The operative words in the tag being from House Democrats.

    …Rich white guys. Yup just love me some Republican concern trolls.
    …Fools all.

    “Oooh, it’s so big and complicated!” said one of the 8.5 million people who downloaded and read the bill today.
    What’s Boehner scared of when he’s got a staff of twenty people to read it for him? Showbiz -

    … closing mcmama’s italics tag. Or, trying to, anyway.

  • bystander

    Nope. Foiled and failed.

    “Foiled and Failed”
    I just might have to send Boehner a t-shirt

  • mcmama

    Oh, no! Really? My tag’s still open, and we’re stuck in italics-land?
    Sorry. I don’t know how to fix it, either.

    Oh Grandma! What a lot of rich white guys you have!

  • Michael Shaw (The BAG)

    …It’s all good.

  • DennisQ

    Aren’t these the same guys who didn’t even glance at the Patriot Act?

    thought bubble over Eric Cantor…I can’t wait to do a better job than this guy.

    Jazz hands, smug mugs and empty suits. Is that all the loyal opposition brings? Sadly, the song and dance is music to the ears of a vocal segmjent of the population.
    They use the visual weight of the proposed legislation to confuse and confound the low information / high emotion populace. What they don’t say is that’s how all bills and proposals look.

    John Boehner is so fashion-conscious…his tan matches the lectern’s facade.
