This is an election I'd conceivably see myself voting Independent. Especially if Gabbard beat Grandad.

I just got a POLITICO alert that the "Senate GOP [is] strongly consider[ing] adding Obamacare mandate repeal to tax bill". Wow, these guys are really trying to tank the one thing they actually have a chance of passing.

There's going to be a nation wide backlash against AL when Moore wins this. They will definitely be the butt of a lot of late night jokes throughout December.

Alabama is already the butt of literally every other state's jokes. Even Florida laughs at Alabama.

Even if he isn't convicted he's gonna get primaried out next year.

Please stop denigrating the voters of Alabama.  If they elect Moore, they are no worse than the voters of Massachusetts, who reelected a man who committed to a DUI, which led to the death of a young lady, whom he made no significant efforts to safe, reported the accident many hours latter, and then used his influence to avoid the consequences of his actions, that any of the rest of us would have to face.

Now Democrats later in 2000 considered DUIs so significant, that they spent the whole weekend before the election explaining to the nation why Bush 43s failure to disclose a DUI when he was 18 disqualified him from being elected.   

Another point: stop denigrating them till you see what they do.

I am afraid some of you are as puritanical as some of those you criticize.  I know it is hard to see ones own faults.  I miss some of mine.

Even if we accepted your false equivalency, two wrongs don't make a right. You're basically arguing that your party is owed its one freebie sex predator senator, no questions asked.

No, he is saying that arguably the two most significant inflection points of the moral degradation of our culture on matters such as this have been caused by Democratic unwillingness to hold their own accused to account.

Like how we didn't shun John Edwards after he cheated on his wife or push Anthony Weiner out of his seat (against the will of his constituents I might add) for tweeting a dick pic?

If we lose this, maybe Democrats will learn to stop going with the milquetoast candidate (Northam) just because he's next in line, over the candidate with actual enthusiasm behind him (Perrielo).

15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will Trump scrapping CSR payments spike premiums? on: October 14, 2017, 12:16:51 pm
Regardless of whether it will increase premiums (and it will), these CSR payments are illegal. Congress never appropriated the funds to allow these subsidies to go through and them being "implied" in the ACA doesn't cut it. Obviously eliminating these payments will increase premiums, but that's simply the way Obamacare was written. Forcing insurers to lower costs leads to losses which will have to be offset with premium increases. Trump is allowing Obamacare to work the way it was written, and congressionally authorized, to work. The blame lies at the feet of congress and president Obama for never including specific appropriations for these payments in the bill. Trump is doing his duty and eliminating an unconstitutional payment system.

Most hard working american people don't give a damn about "congressionally authorized" -- they just want to pay lower for health insurance. And if it raises health insurance for the same coverage, you bet your butt people will be upset!

Well I'm sorry, but the constitutionality of provisions of a law are not just some secondary afterthought. The constitution supersedes political considerations of whether voters like something or not. If it's that important to voters, Congress should have had the guts to include appropriation to this aspect of ObamaCare in the first place.

I agree, but Congress in the past 6 years has sucked hard lol. People are really mad that it hasn't been delivering, and they want better health insurance now.

You really think a working class american gives a flying f*** about constitutionality when they're trying to put bread on the table?

I never claimed that an average working class person does care, but the President of the United States certainly should care whether the Constitution is being adhered to.
He should, but the current occupant definitely doesn't and I don't think any sane person could make a rational argument that he does.

phil murphy hasnt  is leading in a good year fo dems, and Patrick i believe has won every office hes ran for
Phil Murphy appears to be about to pull a double-digit win, and Patrick Murphy ran for senate in FL last Year, and looked like he would win, but imploded late in the race.

He never imploded. Rubio blew up the race by jumping back in at the last minute.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Tom Price Megathread on: September 29, 2017, 10:42:46 pm
Since Congress isn't going to be able to repeal the ACA, Mitt Romney would be a good choice to fill the position.

Note - I'm not predicting this, but appointing someone who believes in health care reform makes a lot more sense than appointing someone who doesn't.

I agree, but would Mitt really want to be a part of this administration? 

Mitt met with Trump about being SOS after the election. He's at least open to the idea.

SoS is infinitely more prestigious than SoHHS. And after the last 7 months, I doubt Romney would board this sinking ship. Especially not when he's got a shot at becoming a Senate lifer.
