“This conservative fetish for “local government” has always stemmed from their desire to reclaim the “freedom” those southern towns used to have when they were allowed to handle their race “problems” as they saw fit. Any citizen who’s ever been exposed to local and state government knows very well that the idea it’s un-corrupted with greed and petty ambition is ludicrous. The fact that Ryan doesn’t understand that the mantra of “local control” in this situation is ridiculous is yet another sign that he’s so ideologically programmed he honestly doesn’t know how to think in any other way.” Hullabaloo (via azspot)

“Simply put, there is almost an entire half of our political system that believes that a great number of Americans simply do not matter enough to make it economically feasible to help them stay healthy. They do not count. It does not matter how many of them die preventable deaths. It is better for the country, this half of the political system believes, that they grow sick and bankrupt themselves. In his famous outburst on the House floor, Alan Grayson was low-balling it. This half of the system includes prospective presidents, members of Congress, think-tank geniuses, pundits, and a lot of other people who generally have one thing in common — most of them have wonderful health care coverage either because they have really good jobs, or they’re wealthy enough to afford it, or both. These are the health care chickenhawks. And we held them to a split decision today, and maybe that’s enough for the moment.” Charles P. Pierce (via azspot)

Not only were things not paid for under Bush, not only was the money borrowed with interest, but the deficits created by Bush, and passed on to future presidents and generations of US taxpayers, were erased from collective minds of all Republicans so they could achieve maximum dereliction of their commitments and reverse all their beliefs on the role of the president.
