    What are Republicans afraid of?

    If they like, what they have, they keep it.

    If they don’t like, what they have, they don’t have to take the public option.

    What are Republicans afraid of, the truth.

    The truth is more people will choose the public option, because; it is more affordable and will give better health outcomes.

    Democrat’s population will therefore grow larger and healthier, voting out RePUCKaTons before they die off.

    Of course, this only accelerates RePUCKaTon already dwindling size, not unlike their collective IQ.

    It’s the “final solution” the RePUCKaTons have been wet dreaming of.

    Well said.

    I couldn’t have said it beter myself.

    # 26 Benjamin, au contraire, construction of our highways had nothing to do with mail delivery. Another RePUCKaTon lie uncovered.

    The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956, popularly known as the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act (Public Law 84-627), was enacted on June 29, 1956, when Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the bill into law. Appropriating $25 billion for the construction of 41,000 miles (66,000 km) of Interstate Highways over a 20-year period, it was the largest public works project in American history to that point.[citation needed]

    The money was handled in a highway trust fund that paid for 90 percent of highway construction costs with the states required to pay the remaining 10 percent. It was expected that the money would be generated through new taxes on fuel, automobiles, trucks and tires.

    Eisenhower’s support of the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 can be directly attributed to his experiences in 1919 as a participant in the U.S. Army’s first Transcontinental Motor Convoy across the United States on the historic Lincoln Highway, which was the first road across America. The highly publicized 1919 convoy was intended, in part, to dramatize the need for better main highways and continued federal aid.

    FYI, the misspelled signs are Photoshopped. Just Say’in. Still funny though.

    # 34 deckered, do you have, a non-PhotoShopped picture you want to show us??????????????

  7. right says:

    I think we have to make sure that when the public option becomes available, Alfred1 does not sign up.
    We need for him to pay exorbitant fees……..sorry, I made a big mistake.

    It’s obvious that he doesn’t have any health insurance today because of his “pre-existing” condition.
    Odds on him being the first in line once it’s offered? Har!

    Alfred1 in the lineup – “I never said I was against it, you loons.”

  8. ridin the short bus says:

    These signs are quite funny… although the subject matter is not. And the Question has been asked…why are republicants so objecting to a public option? If they are happy with what they be it… I am for public option single payer universal health care, I have seen it in action and I will say that a friend of mine is alive a well to day because if it. And he is not in debt, he can spend the rest of his life not worrying about being in debt, (he is from te UK) unlike the American System, you may want to commit suicide after getting the bill from your survival!!! If we downsized the military, (700+ installations over seas) started to look after our own interests at home, concentrated on manufacturing and looked after our selves, created a fair and flat tax system, the dollar would become stonger and we would be respected again, sort of the opposite of todays america… everyone is laughing at us…. if the Russians get their stuff tofether, watch out…they will be ruling us… they have the oil the money the will,…and justified.. it seems… thanks to the Republicants…again and again… me me me me me oh look I made another dollar!!!…. we are in a death spiral…

    “What are Republicans afraid of?”


    The real question is,
    “What are the Democrats afraid of?”

    The Dems control the government, the Dems have the majority, so what’s the problem? Just have the balls and do it!

  10. Dallas says:

    #38 The reason is that Democrats are made up of individuals who vote their individual opinion. You cannot guarantee they vote in unison.

    In contrast, the Republicans are spineless maggots that vote whatever the queen maggot of the week has to say.

  11. ridin the short bus says:

    The Health care reform and all the arguments that go along with it are really a euphomism for whats wrong with America… we can no longer figure out whats good for us or bad for us…we have become a misguided band of idiots roaming around like a blind cat running into trees, walls and garbage cans…. shouting about topic of the day, soon to be forgotton in 6 monthes, while the real issues are never tackled of fixed… Their should be term limits to congress people, most of the senate are long time washington insiders that have long forgot what it was like to live in their home states…and no longer represent the folks, they only vote their pocket…….the system in principle is good, but in the current version is broken. I dont believe even FDR could succeed in todays environment.

  12. ridin the short bus says:

    #39 like the line form the movie “Hunt for Red October…”

    “GO DALLAS”………

  13. Wightout says:

    The name calling is quite childish. On both sides. and has brought me to the conclusion that none of you have anything but name calling to back up your allegations. Reading the comments was a severe waste of my time… This place has really gone south man.

    Normally I come here to listen to people who are more informed then I, but name calling? lmao my siblings do this. You all should be ashamed to represent your political persuasion with name calling. Do none of your have a stronger and more articulate use of the english language?


  14. right says:

    Wightout – If you came here abnormally you’d see what all the fuss is about.

  15. Ah_Yea says:

    Ok, Dallas, let me get this straight.

    It’s OK to vote against healthcare reform if your a Democrat because you are “an individual”, but if you are a Republican you are a “spineless maggot”.

    Or could it be that the Republicans are individuals voting their conscience and most Democrats are “spineless maggots” voting whatever the “Queen maggot” dictates?

    Maybe the “Queen maggot” has another reason for pushing this through without proper debate?

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama’s push for a national health care overhaul is providing a financial windfall in the election offseason to Democratic consulting firms that are closely connected to the president and two top advisers.

    Coalitions of interest groups running at least $24 million in pro-overhaul ads hired GMMB, which worked for Obama’s 2008 campaign and whose partners include a top Obama campaign strategist. They also hired AKPD Message and Media, which was founded by David Axelrod, a top adviser to Obama’s campaign and now to the White House. AKPD did work for Obama’s campaign, and Axelrod’s son Michael and Obama’s campaign manager David Plouffe work there.”

    After all, it’s just good’ole Illinois politics!

  16. Ah_Yea says:

    And again, here is the upside.

    Health care reform is on the front burner. People are talking about it. Action of some sort will be taken.

    This is all good. The big mistake was Obama trying to shove it up our backsides like the Stimulus plan. Now, if the Dems were smart (good luck), they will take a step back and slow down. Engage in constructive debate, soothe frayed nerves, respond appropriately.

    It may take a couple of years, and everyone should be prepared for the wait. But at the end, most of the people will be on board and things will be better.

  17. Wightout says:

    #43 right

    I have been reading DU on and off for quite some time, and I do not think that I have ever seen so much name calling back and forth before.

    Whether or not there is all this amazing fuss you speak of name calling voids your argument. It is a tactic used by people who lack the ability to make a valid rebuttal.

  18. Ah_Yea says:

    Wightout, exactly.

  19. right says:

    Wightout – OK, you are correct. I just get tired of being called a Statist, a Nazi and a Socialist. Ad hominums are a release sometimes.
    Rational discourse would be nice but sometimes unattainable. Facts being presented would be nice.

  20. noname says:

    # 45 Ah_Yea, “take a step back and slow down. … It may take a couple of years, and everyone should be prepared for the wait. But at the end, most of the people will be on board and things will be better.”

    Where have you been??

    American’s have been waiting since 1901, when Theodore Roosevelt promised America a “Square Deal”, a fair shake for both the average citizen and the businessman (through big business regulations, transportation and pure food and drugs). He was the first U.S. president to call for universal health care and national health insurance.

    Where have you been??

    Waiting, slowing down is a fools game. GWB knew this when he crammed his agenda down America’s throat.

    Yes, let’s do this right, but; as the saying goes, “you must strike while the iron is hot”.

  21. Ah_Yea says:

    HAAA!! HAAA!!! Oh, noname, that was so funny!!

    HAAA!! Oh, I can’t stop laughing!

    So you are in favor of forcing everyone to accept what you think is right??!!

    HAAA!!!, Oh stop it, you’re killing me!!

    You’re kidding, aren’t you?? You must be kidding, right??

    After all, the healthcare bill stalled last session exactly because smug, elitist politicians did exactly what you are suggesting.

  22. noname says:

    Sorry, typical RePUCKaTons spin, the kettle calling the pot black.

    “So you are in favor of forcing everyone to accept what you think is right??!!”

    It’s all the RePUCKaTons that are calling anyone and everyone a NAZI, nonsensical or not, are the ones forcing their death agenda on America.

  23. deowll says:

    “This is the polluted environment that allows the repugnant party to live on.”

    Based on this I take it you would kill them if you could? Charming! You don’t have much toleration for people who disagree with you do you? An egalitarian is what you aren’t.

  24. deowll says:

    #31 The progressive branch/socialist aren’t going to allow anyone to opt out when it comes to paying their fair share of the bill or even out of the system. They intend to have single payer even if they lose control of the house and Senate as a result.

    Not sure they can get it to work but they claim they are going to try it.

  25. qb says:

    One bit of advice for the Democrats: don’t bring a knife to a gunfight.

  26. noname says:

    # 54 deowll,
    More RePUCKaTons B.S. and dribble.

    “31 The progressive branch/socialist aren’t going to allow anyone to opt out when it comes to paying their fair share of the bill or even out of the system. They intend to have single payer even if they lose control of the house and Senate as a result.”

    Says who, you. You, is that who I should believe, you?? The only thing to support your B.S., is your Biases.

    Why would anyone with an amebas’s worth of education believe that. Oh, I forgot, RePUCKaTons don’t go to school, it’s a socialist institution.

  27. Tyrant says:

    There are plenty of fun protest signs to be found here.

  28. Mr. Fusion says:

    #54, doill,

    Let me remind you of what you wrote in another post.

    It would appear that a lot of people posting here like to use smear tactics when they run into people who don’t agree with their views.

    I don’t admire the tactic or the people that use it. Any cause they support is automatically dubious until proven other wise.

    So you continue to make your crap up. You can’t argue facts because you don’t have any.

    Oops! Missed that one! Interstates are OKAY! (YAY!)
