I’m nervous, really excrutiatingly agitata scared in fact.
All this comes as the Senate votes, YET AGAIN, on killing the Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare). Today’s vote is a procedural step – they’re voting on whether to go ahead, take up the horrific and blindingly cruel House plan and proceed with killing the ACA.
This link, right here, leads to all the contact info, including phone numbers, for every single senator. There are convenient drop down buttons so that you can immediately find the ones for your state.
CALL THIS MORNING! CALL NOW!
And...today's example of Texas being the all-time winner of the Nut Job Elected Official sash:
“Some of the people that are opposed to this [i.e., repealing Obamacare] — there are some female senators from the northeast,” Farenthold said. “If it was a guy from south Texas I might ask them to step outside and settle this Aaron Burr-style.” (source)Note – apparently it’s not enough of a slur to call out the opposers as female, NOOOOOO, they’re also from the northeast!
I only mention it BUT only one of the repeal opponents is female and from the northeast. Apparently this gun-happy troll flunked geography and has HUGE problems recognizing gender differences. Still, he got elected to the Senate...from Texas.To be certain we all understand that he’s a “gentleman,” he says he’d only kill 'em if they were men. Yeah, this dimwitted fat fuck’s a real prince, eh? He should hope like hell that he never loses his cushy gig with the wonderful health care bennies – this boy’s half a clogged artery away from a giant heart attack.
Just to be rilly, rilly clear, 32 MILLION people will lose their health insurance if the Republicans succeed. It won’t be just me who dies a horrible, painful death, there’ll be as many as 31,999,999 others.
So then, no surprise that I spent the better part of yesterday in tears, eh? At first I thought it was all due to the love of my life NOT being with me anymore. The waterworks DO owe a whole hell of a lot to The Amazing Bob’s absence but there’s more. If that vituperative fucking ugly turtle McConnell, Granny Starver Ryan and that brainless pile of lard, Farthold, (oh sorry, I meant Farenthold) get their obscene way, my life will be MUCH shorter AND a lot more painful.
Have I said this yet? Save a life (it won’t be just mine) CALL YOUR SENATORS TODAY!
