It's the National Day of Prayer. You got that? The Republicans in the House of Representatives passed a bill that would ultimately strip insurance from tens of millions of people and get rid of provisions that would end up harming tens of millions more. People would die if this became law and the very wealthy would get a tax break to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.
And they did it on the National Day of Prayer. It's like raping bunnies on Easter; it's like if on Easter morning, a group of pasty white Republicans grabbed cute, fluffy rabbits and raped the shit out of them. Just raped them until they were dead and used the limp bunny bodies to wipe off their dicks before tossing them aside. "Christ is risen," they'd announce. "We just fucked bunnies to death."
Although, if one of the rabbit rapists didn't have insurance and then went for treatment later for PTSD because the bunnies won't stop screaming, the bunnies won't stop screaming, well, under the American Health Care Act, that wouldn't necessarily be covered by insurance. Yeah, see, it's a pre-existing condition.
And if you think that sucks for bunny buggerers, well, fuck you, because it's way worse for rape victims. Yeah, getting raped is a pre-existing condition. Sorry, ladies, but that roofie was all the medication you're gonna get because the Koch Brothers need to pay slightly less in taxes.
We're at a point where the repellent Republicans are degrading the nation to where it is becoming unrecognizable. The policies being pursued by Donald Trump and the GOP have no purpose other than to prove some cruel point. What reason is there other than pettiness for getting rid of Michelle Obama's Let Girls Learn program and reversing some of the healthy school lunch rules? You're just being an asshole.
One of the most pathetic things I've ever seen in contemporary politics was the celebration in the Rose Garden of the House vote, with Trump ditching the Australian prime minister to preen and prance around with Republicans. It was a jolly celebration of the rule of the rich white male, like a meeting of the Old, Bloated Douches Club. And it looked exactly like this:
Who the fuck does that? Who the fuck holds a ceremony to brag about being ahead in the first quarter? If nothing passes the Senate, will they riot like a losing NCAA basketball team's fans? It's fucking embarrassing, like everything that comes out of this White House. Every day we should all just be ashamed of our country because of shit like this. The Repulsive States of Dead America.
Don't let your fucking guard down. The Senate is gonna work on its own brand of heinous fuckery. Whatever they come up with, if it actually passes, the lapdogs of the House will gobble it up like a meaty vomit. And it very well might pass because, as I've said before, they are motherfuckers. And what do motherfuckers do? They fuck mothers. They will fuck mothers every chance they get. It's right there in the word.
Congressional Democrats have a chance, as they so often do, to not fuck this up, to break out the guillotines and behead the GOP in front of a crowd. On this issue, at least, Democrats are simply better human beings. They might be shittier politicians, but they are better human beings. Now they have to step up their goddamn game and create a simple message that can be hammered into voters' skulls like the dunce-yawp of "MAGA": Do you think you or your family members or your friends or your co-workers should be able to get cancer treatment? Or should a billionaire get a few million more? Chemo or yachts?
And, as I've proposed before, Democrats should be tempting the hell out of Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and a third Republican (Ben Sasse? McCain?) to go independent to stop this blithe evil.
Republicans will screech that it's class warfare. Fuck them. They fired the first shots. They said that the poor and the sick aren't worthy of living without fear of the next illness, the next accident, the next rape. They said that compassion was for suckers and wealth triumphs over all. Then, after they gutted the Affordable Care Act, they laughed and danced like Klansman around a lynched black man. Which, if you think about it, was pretty much what they wanted to do in the first place.
Let's wreck these wretched worms and bury alive their corrupt ideology so that it suffocates on the dirt.
