A couple days ago The Hill provided a hint as to what the “blame the GOP for a law NONE of them voted to pass” movement will look like heading into next year’s election.

Next up, HuffPo:

This criticism, while stupid and pitiful, isn’t entirely unjustified. Instead of telling Democrats to go f*#k themselves nuts deep when it comes to helping repair anything connected to Obamacare, some in the GOP have insisted on putting Republican fingerprints on the law, which is beyond stupid — regardless of the upcoming SCOTUS decision on King v. Burwell.

The Dems passed a shitty law, so let them bear the entire burden of the consequences of the illegalities courts agree it contains. By insisting on helping to “fix” Obamacare the Republicans are torching their best arguments/examples for full repeal.

    As a Conservative, unfortunately this is a real REAL tough habit to BREAK? Only recently have I found myself able to stir my coffee while loudmouths, braggarts and know-nothings base jump onto their sword.

    Conservatives always think we can SALVAGE 'anything'!? Regardless how hopeless it might seem? Tomorrow's another day! We still naively believe America's "best days are ahead of us!" blah blah.

    Then there's the irresistible URGE to Play The Hero. To snatch victory from..? Ya' just gotta' get OVER it people.

    As simplistic as it may sound; this weakness should be treated as an entirely new GENRE of self-help books. Far too many Conservatives fall prey and wind up taking the fall for false choice solutions when we didn't drive into the ditch in the first place.

    At home, at work, in PUBLIC. And "creatives", idea junkies, and general anarchists KNOW just what parental-type to dump WHICH problem with! Used to be "concerned" post it pads left on your keyboard from the night shift.

    Now it's texts on the weekend and when they KNOW you're driving etc. Next we'll be responsible for measuring the effectiveness of pharma co's drugs to determine Fair Share PRICING! Cuzz' all humans are the SAME you know?

    Hey Doug, do you think we can get the GOP leadership and their RINO cohorts to come over for a poker night? Talk about easy pickings, with this bunch you could bluff them every time and be holding nothing at all and know they will cave. Hell, you might even be able to show them your cards and they will attempt to fix your hand by giving you the cards you need.

    Yup – and it is not only in Washington DC. Here in Michigan the R's just voted overwhelmingly to raise licensing fees on any and all that fall under the regs of having to be licensed. They are getting raked over the coals by their constituents for raising the fees. Their response – mock us, tell us we are out of touch and are misinformed. These guys are on their last legs in Michigan politics because of term limits. They will be running to get on the national stage and put the screws to us there. We can't catch a break!

    "to raise licensing fees on any and all that fall under the regs of having to be licensed."

    Do you have a license to say that? It's gonna' COST ya'!? You know, for all the grief the man took, Pasadena Phil had been warning on this for years. What's equally dispiriting is that unlike days of yore where the IRS had the GPO actually PRINT ( gasp! ) tax forms and have them piled up like cord wood at the USPS, virtually every interaction we have w/ our government is well, virtual?

    If everything we need to renew, register or license is done ONLINE, what the hell do we need local offices ( or an ever GROWING state employee base ) for? When was the last time anyone filed for unemployment at a brick and mortar office? While we're at it, why don't MI GOP's go after all the Detroit residences that haven't been paying their water & sewer bills for the last decade?

    I'd like to be seated across the table from Eric Cantor if no one minds?

    BUT, to a degree, derailing subsidies ( however insolvent ) isn't something I'd want my party's name tattooed w/ just this moment. There's a 1-in-10 chance SOME deserving families ( post-engineered non-recovery 'recovery' ) actually benefitted from this.

    At even 5% let alone 10, it's a margin we just don't enjoy right now. Drive a stake thru its heart LATER.
