Quote of the Day, Jr.
"Yes. We're going to propose replacing Obamacare with patient-centered health care, with a better health care system for everybody."
-- Failed vice-presidential candidate and lead singer of Steak Baby Paul Ryan answering Fox News's question about whether the new GOP budget assumes that Obama's Affordable Care Act will be repealed
Astonishing. They're never going to stop beating this dead horse, no matter what. I said this once before, quite a while back, but I'm not sure whether to admire the GOP's tenacity or despise their relentless obstinacy in the face of the will of the majority of Americans. These people never give up. No matter how much time goes by, how ingrained into our culture a system becomes, or how broad-based a decision's appeal is, if the Republicans don't like it as far as they're concerned it's illegitimate and they'll fight to the death to do away with it. It's staggering when you consider the fact that they continue to refight, over and over again, battles over social security, abortion, and civil rights laws -- battles they were utterly defeated in the first time around.
Their war to end Obamacare will never end. We'll still be listening to this crap 40 years from now.
