Hypocritical Republican Wants to Ban Single-Payer at State Level…

01) Hypocritical Republican Wants to Ban Single-Payer at State Level


“Republican Senator John Kennedy is attempting to stifle momentum towards single-payer by restricting states’ ability to implement it. He may soon offer a redundant amendment to Graham-Cassidy’s latest Obamacare ‘repeal and replace’ bill even though it already includes a provision that bans single-payer at the state level. So the party of “states’ rights” only cares about states’ rights when it’s convenient. And in order to prevent a “big government takeover” of healthcare, they’re hypocritically going to be restricting states’ autonomy.

Ted Cruz Blames Staffer for ‘Liked’ Pornographic Tweet…

01) Ted Cruz Blames Staffer for ‘Liked’ Pornographic Tweet. Sure, Ted.


“During an intense fap session, Texas Senator Ted Cruz likely forgot to sign out of his throwaway Twitter account he uses for porn and accidentally ‘liked’ a tweet he presumably wanted to save for the ‘ol ‘spank bank’ on his public Twitter account. He decided to blame a staffer for this. Sure, Ted. Whatever you say, Ted. 😉

Full Clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pAFuhT90W8

I did not know it was Ted’s personal account…Why would he have staff running that account?…That would kind of defeat the whole purpose of having a personal account…would it not?

I also want to point out, that retweeting is a two step process…making it highly improbable to accidentally do…And wasn’t this a case of retweeting?…Didn’t the tweet show up in his own timeline?…Only liking a tweet, doesn’t make that happen.

…Of course…nobody seems to be asking these questions.

I also find unsatisfactory, his response to the sex toy sale ban incident…

…He says it was a stupid law…but he still saw nothing wrong, in fighting to enforce it?

Convenient thing to say, now that it’s no longer relevant to his career advancement…but, in fact, is more of a liability…

That mindset, right there, gets to the heart of what I hate most about politicians…

…To many of them will roll with the way things are…even when they know it is stupid…counterproductive…corrupt…wrong…

…”Nothing personal”…”It’s just their job”…

Who are they working for?…Because it certainly isn’t me…nor a vast span of the population.

Hillary Clinton Attacks Progressives, Critiques Bernie’s ‘Medicare for All’ Bill…

01) Hillary Clinton Attacks Progressives, Critiques Bernie’s ‘Medicare for All’ Bill


“Hillary Clinton has been making the rounds on cable news shows in an attempt to both (a) promote her new book, and (b) continue f*cking over America even more. Not only is she tripling-down on her attacks against progressives—calling them divisive, and implying that they’re sexist—but she’s also trying to undermine Bernie Sanders by criticizing his ‘Medicare for All’ bill and condescendingly implying he doesn’t understand his own bill and can’t determine how much it will cost. She’s also trying to persuade the Democratic Party to not give Bernie any influence. Thanks, Hillary!”

If we never had to hear the name Hillary Clinton again…that would be so, so, so wonderful…

01) John McCain Reveals His Graham-Cassidy Healthcare Vote


“”Sen. John McCain of Arizona, the Republican who delivered the final blow to the previous attempt to overhaul the US healthcare system, may have done the same when he came out against the GOP’s latest healthcare legislation on Friday afternoon.
In a statement, McCain said the lack of “regular order” in crafting the legislation was what pushed him away.

“I would consider supporting legislation similar to that offered by my friends Senators Graham and Cassidy were it the product of extensive hearings, debate, and amendment,” McCain said. “But that has not been the case. Instead, the specter of September 30 budget reconciliation deadline has hung over this entire process.”

01) Hillary Clinton and Her Minions Seek Vengeance on America – Episode 110


“In this episode—the longest in the history of our show—we’ll cover President Trump’s cruel decision to end DACA along with his plans to resell ‘trickle-down’ economics to the American people. We’ll also focus on the return of Hillary Clinton and challenge the arguments made in her new book, ‘What Happened.’ But Hillary Clinton’s return was accompanied by her most prominent minions including Peter Daou (with a new pro-Hillary propaganda website to attack progressives called “Verrit”) and Joy Ann Reid (who claims the Democratic Party should focus on identity politics and ignore economic issues). After covering these knuckleheads, we’ll shift focus to Medicare for All in the second half of the show. Finally, we’ll end the episode on a lighter note with a Patreon Q&A, and an interview with 2018 congressional candidate Sarah Smith and comedian Ron Placone, respectively. It’s the last episode for two weeks, as Mike will take a break to get hitched. Oh yeah—we also passed 25 million total views! Woohoo! So if you’re able to sit through 3+ hours of Mike ranting about politics then buckle up, because we’ve got a great show for you!”
