Fark Threads on LegislationEdit

January, 2017Edit

Attempt to eliminate Office of Congressional EthicsEdit

  1. House Republicans so dedicated to draining the swamp they're gutting Congress' independent ethics watchdog
  2. GOP: gutting ethics panel will "provide more accountability" (Update: They reversed it)
  3. "Ha, yeah, we were just kidding about gutting the independent body that investigates political misconduct, honestly. Our complete reversal is nothing at all to do with someone using 280 characters or less"
  4.  If you would like to know how your representative voted on the "Goodlatte proposal" that aimed to kill the independent Office of Congressional Ethics and live in a district represented by a Republican member of Congress, then today is your lucky day
  5. Dems organize against GOP ethics scandal. Media covers story. Trump sends out a tweet. GOP caves under public pressure. Media gives full credit to Trump. Media then writes articles like this one wondering how Trump got all the credit
  6. Yesterday's abrupt reversal of Monday's surprise action by Congressional Republicans to gut the ethics process reveals Paul Ryan is carrying on an important tradition of John Boehner's speakership: being really bad at his job
  7. Well, imagine that. It looks like Bob Goodlatte (R-epulsive Slime) had some personal reasons for wanting to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics

Reinstatement of “Holman Rule"Edit

  1. While you and the rest of the world was gushing about the ethics office snafu, House Republicans quietly brought back a rule that will make it easier for Donald Trump to purge the federal government of any employees who disagree with him
  2. The federal government now has a dollar menu

Repeal of ACAEdit

  1. Prelude and/or background
    1. Obamacare repeal will only cost taxpayers approx. 1,750 F-35s. Not including R&D of course. Of course the other costs are not having insurance and hospitals paying for charity care and this is looking like a bad idea. What's the repeal plan again?
    2. Tl;dr: Trump voters hate ObamaCare but they like their plan with ACA and Medicare coverage but don't let the poors have it
    3. Actual Headline: 'Trump voters don't think...' Everything beyond that point is redundancy in its finest
    4. This is why GOP has a hard time to find a replacement for Obamacare: The Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare", is basically identical to the privatized mandate plan the Republicans were pushing for 40 years until Obama was elected
  2. Backlash
    1. Congress is hearing it from all sides after right wingers realized that Obamacare was the same as the ACA
    2. Texas Congressman holds a meeting so "local people affected by ObamaCare" can "share their experiences with rising costs and loss of coverage and choice,". Texas Congressman didn't think his cunning plan all the way through
    3. NRO has a sneaking suspicion that maybe Trump hasn't been exactly straightforward about his plan to replace the ACA. Bonus: they are just now realizing he has no plan
    4. New survey shows only 22% of Americans want Obamacare repealed; this is a huge drop in support for the GOP's plan after red state voters learned the ACA that covered them was actually Obamacare
    5. Red states that received Medicaid expansion have a more favorable view of the Affordable Care Act than those that don't have said expansion
  3. Repeal
    1. And so it begins: Senate Votes 51-48 to repeal Obamacare
    2. Paul Ryan promises Republicans will complete 'Obamacare' replacement this year. No word on if it will be replaced with a medical ponzi scheme, a wet sock, or plain good old nothing
    3. Paul Ryan announces that there is a "Y'all women can go f*ck yourselves" provision in the Obamacare repeal
    4. Americans to GOP: "Don't you dare repeal it without a replacement strategy" GOP: "LOLs, too late. Die quickly"
    5. GOP realizes too late their attempt to repeal ACA was completely farking stupid
    6. Bobby Jindal explains how the GOP should repeal Obamacare quickly without replacing it
    7. Bombshell CBO report indicates ACA repeal will preserve coverage of 2 million more plans than previously anticipated
    8. CBO: The GOP's plan to repeal Obamacare would make America great again for over 32M people
    9. ACA will be allowed to wither and die much like the Americans that need it
    10. The county that had one of the highest percentage of Trump voters is also a county with one of the highest percentage of Obamacare users, but only because "the black bomb" "put a gun to their heads" to buy it
  4. Replacement
    1. The first Obamacare replacement proposal is in, and it's ... Obamacare. Unless you live in a red state, in which case it's Thunderdome
    2. The GOP Congress is struggling to come up with an Obamacare replacement that meets Trump's criteria of being a realistic down-to-earth plan that's completely off the wall and swarming with magic robots
    3. Republicans are going to have to start checking everyone for wires when they have these closed door meetings from now on, also they have no plan to replace the ACA and are scared shiatless
    4. Officials now believe that the leaked audio from the Obamacare repeal session at the GOP retreat came from an unidentified woman who showed up at the retreat, claimed to be the wife of a Congressman, and was given an all-access pass without question


"REINS" ActEdit
