Saw the words, “Republican” and “Crazy” and decided to skip the article as it is likely a repeat of last week’s news.

Getting Crazy? I think they fell down that well some time ago.

Mike Pence… ‘‘oh fuck it, lets just join the train wreck.’’

Expansion now almost doesn’t matter. The GOP refused to extend increased Medicaid payments to doctors which were used initially to attract MD participants.

With no extra money for MD’s, newly expanded programs won’t have enough doctors for the people.

The GOP sadists strike again!

The Dems in these states need to holler from the mountaintops that this is Obamacare.

Ask Allison Lundergan Grimes how not claiming Kentucky’s KYnect worked out for her.

They only have to fool their base. They don’t care if the rest of the population sees through their BS.

Obamacare and the expansion of Medicaid has not been any sort of trainwreck, but thanks for the nonsense!

Criticize away, but the GOP assault on Obamacare has been so effective that it helped McConnell survive against Grimes in KY despite the overwhelming popularity of KYNect health care coverage, the state’s exchange, created by the Democratic governor.

People LOVE KYNect, but they don’t want anything to do with that vile Obamacare. Grimes refused to proudly claim Democratic ownership of the program and its benefits to voters and McConnell, who made killing Obamacare a cornerstone of his Senate leadership, somehow managed to convince his state’s voters that he was all for the benefits it provided.

Frank Luntz would be proud and the Democratic messaging machine once again botches it.

Republicans are winning the messaging war, but Democrats are winning the policy war.

Once a state accepts Medicaid expansion, they aren’t going back.

After Pubbie governors so proudly claim that their programs had nothing to do with Obamacare, the fact still is that these Pubbie governors would have to address their constituents about why their programs collapsed if Obamacare got shut down. Sounds like a nightmare these Pubbie governors are gambling won’t happen.

Pence’s state-funded propaganda department will catapult this to help build the case for Pence to run for President.

Just as in the same way Republicans claim to hate hate hate taxes. Yet they love user fees, surcharges, revenue enhancements, etc.

It’s as if the Affordable Care Act were thought up by a black man and they are trying to dis him. But they are happy to scramble for the gold as it spills out of the bag.

Tell that to Michelle Buchman.

While you’re at it, ask her how that Democrat not being able to admit voting for a Democrat worked out for her.
