@oralloy,
Republicans voting 50 times to kill Obamacare while not once providing a written plan (not even a page) is supporting death. Like Trump's Covid response.

Obviously the electorate caught on.

"QAnon influencers who have built large audiences over the past three years continue to encourage their audiences to 'trust the plan,'" View said. "Many rank-and-file QAnon followers are expressing anger and disillusionment."

Some QAnon followers stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, including a man wearing a QAnon shirt, while leading a pack of protesters toward the Senate chamber.

In QAnon chats captured by the fact-checking technology company Logically.AI and reviewed by NBC News, QAnon supporters drew hard lines shortly before the inauguration began and immediately felt embarrassed when the coup did not occur.

"God help us we're beyond ready. If nothing happens I will no longer believe in anything," one supporter said at the beginning of inauguration.

"We all just got played," another said moments later.

"...just got played!" yeap, Trump is famous for that. He played the world and lost. He always loses. The biggest loser in all time - Trump!

One of the consequences of the chaos of the U.S. Capitol is a distancing of banks and other business from former President Trump. He now faces a delicate and difficult situation with his businesses, debt and taxes. Paul Solman reports.

Revealed: Club for Growth is main donor to gun-toting Republican congressman
Quote:
• Andy Harris tried to bring gun on to House floor
• Anti-tax group funded by billionaires gave Harris $345,000

The Club for Growth, an anti-tax group funded by billionaires, has been the primary financial backer of Andy Harris, the Republican lawmaker who sought to bring a gun to the floor of the House of Representatives.

Harris, a medical doctor who represents the eastern shore of Maryland, has received about $345,000 from individuals associated with the Club for Growth since the rightwing campaigners helped to get him elected in 2010, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

The latest revelation about the Club for Growth’s support for Harris comes after the Guardian revealed last week that the group, which is headed by the former Republican congressman David McIntosh, was a major financial support of 42 of the Republicans who sought to invalidate Joseph Biden’s victory in the 2020 election.

It has also supported another lawmaker, Lauren Boebert, who has argued for the need for firearms to be carried inside the US Capitol. Members may only carry firearms in their own offices.
[...]
The Club for Growth became a significant backer of Harris in 2007, when it helped to defeat a longtime – and more moderate – Republican congressman who had served in Maryland’s first district. Harris lost that race in the general election but then won in 2009 in a heavily Republican district.
[...]
The Club for Growth has recently received the vast majority of its funding from Richard Uihlein, the anti-choice rightwing billionaire founder of Uline packaging supply company, and Jeffrey Yass, a billionaire co-founder of Susquehanna International Group, a Philadelphia-based options trading company.

Last year, the group spent millions of dollars helping to elect Lauren Boebert, a far-right pro-gun activist and QAnon conspiracy theorist, who this week was reported to have challenged Capitol police officers who sought to check her purse after she set off metal detectors.

Harris voted on 6 January to overturn the 2020 election results, hours after rioters stormed the US Capitol. In a a radio broadcast a few days later, he criticized a decision by Twitter to ban the president from using the online platform, calling it the result of collusion between socialists and big corporations.

In fact, some of the richest Republican donors have backed Harris, including the billionaire Stephen Schwarzman and other executives from Blackstone, the Wall Street firm whose executives donated more than $10,000 to Harris in the last election cycle.

Comment:
It seems republicans don't understand that police lives matter too...
Do any lives really matter to republican$?

Should vaccinating red states and red districts for Covid really be a priority for Biden considering how Trump had no plan and they still support Trump?

Should they not have a taste of their own medicine? Should red districts get vaccinated first? Really?

Shouldn't the vaccines go first to those who wear masks and value life; Black lives and the lives of police?

Where is the "pro-life" republican outrage over these officers being attacked?

@TheCobbler,
And if republicans are so against "affordable healthcare" maybe they should pay for their own covid vaccines? Science is not free...

How about letting anyone in USA have health care insurance who wants it and have those that don't want it, not be included in the program or required to. There are enough people that do, the rates will not suffer tremendously!

However, there MUST BE no repercussions passed on to the group at large for someone who has not been in the program, wish to be included magically for the 1st time at say, 65 or this someone has cancer and wants in. These old age, pre existing people would have to come up with a pretty penny payoff to get into a program after not having the insurance for years. "I didn't know!", is not a valid condition!

@BillW,
Everyone should pay in so it is there when they need it and no magic is necessary.

Just like corporations should magically not have to pay fair taxes.

Young people will opt out of paying for insurance and they are more prone to commit reckless acts and get injured.

Many of them don't have a nest egg to magically pay a first time deductible.

If wishes were horses we would all get a bad cup of coffee.

I say these things about not vaccinating right wing rejects just to piss them off. I am not really that heartless.

Do they deserve sympathy? Not really...
Lucky for them, better people than I are making the decisions.

Why are republicans interpreting Biden’s condemnation of white supremacy as a personal attack?

@TheCobbler,
The same reason they scream Godwin’s law when the swastika brandishing marchers in Charlottesville are called Nazis.

Oralloy does the same whenever his Nazi ideology is pointed out tohim.

They like everything about the Nazis but the name.
