Skip to comments.Rep. Jim McDermott: "So we sit here until they figure out they ******* lost."
Posted on 10/07/2013 8:21:30 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd
"This mess was created by the Republicans for one purpose, and they lost. People in my district are calling in for Obamacare -- affordable health care -- in large numbers. These guys have lost, and they can't figure out how to admit it... So we sit here until they figure out they ******* lost."
That will get him votes there.
We are being governed by 6 year olds. (and that is being generous)
Just tell them to go sign up, Jim...
Until they find out it isn’t free, but they’ll be charged anyway if they buy nothing.
If Republicans lost then why do they still control the House?
“We are being governed by 6 year olds. (and that is being generous)”
You are underestimating those dedicated socialists ...
This guy is such a POS. To watch him in some of those hearing really makes one wonder who the bigger a$$hole is, him or the folks that voted for him.
I think you also find the photo next to “creepy,” “slimy” and “crooked.”
“O” lost if he can’t get his OWN POS legislation into effect!
If we’re losing, why are the RATS so unhinged?
You’d think they’d be sitting back and enjoying as the Republicans circled the bowl.
Baghdad Jim is a man of the people, don’t you know? A true self sacrificing member of the proletariat who lives in a million dollar plus home in a trendy Seattle neighborhood.
Read Who Shut Down The Government....Harry Reid for Obama.
Prove it McDermott. Prove how many people signed up.
I think you are a liar, McDermott.
With a paltry $95 fine (most don't even know about it), why buy insurance at several times that number (per month!) when you are covered for any pre-existing condition? Once you're sick, you sign up. When you're better, you bail out. Very simple and cheaper. THIS IS THE FUNDAMENTAL FLAW IN OBAMACARE! The fines aren't big enough, even when they grow in a year. Still cheaper to take the risk and sign up when you need the coverage.
Healthy people with no pre-existing conditions will not be signing up in big numbers. Why bother? EPIC FAILURE COMING!
I think the only “success stories” I’ve heard of so far are people who ALREADY BUY insurance, but found out Obamacare will subsidize them with taxpayer funds so they can get a cheaper plan there. This bill claimed it would insure the uninsured. Instead all it seems to be doing is moving people who can already afford insurance onto the government dole for it.
How in hell did this clown get through medical school and...
What? He went where??
I didn’t know East Bumblehumpistan even HAD a medical school!
Thanks. That explains everything!!
Yeah, keep sitting there j@ck@ss, we’ll let you know when to wake up.
Yes Jim, we do want affordable health care.
However, it was you Dems who effed up a perfectly good health care system, and are now intent on making it worse...
“People in my district are calling in for Obamacare”
(really? who are they calling exactly ?)
” — affordable health care — “
(It’s one or the other. Obamacare hasn’t turned out to be affordable, nor workable.)
“in large numbers.”
(how many of these large numbers have actually signed up completely ?)
I understand she and Miller are quite close. (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge)
If you have to say it Jim, it probably isn’t true.
Don’t know if it’s so Rep. Jim McDementia your liar boy Obie just blinked on a solution to the debt ceiling and is showing signs of ohh my of “ negotiations “ with the Republicans on a short term settlement.
“This guy is such a POS. To watch him in some of those hearing really makes one wonder who the bigger a$$hole is, him or the folks that voted for him.”
Skedattle and it’s surrounds is the premier $hittthole of the Northwest. Like Portland is to Oregon and Los Angeles and San Francisco are to California, so too is Skedattle the “ liberal/Marxist open sore” to Washington State.
Rep. Jim McDementia
He’s been a commie since before I left Washington 30 years ago.
I think you are amiss in assuming that with 20,000 pages of healthcare rules, they left this big a loophole.
For instance, if you sign up with 'pre-existing' conditions you have to wait six months before your coverage goes into effect.
Can you wait six months to see a doctor if you are sick ?
I heard a great parody on Bott Radio yesterday, but I forgot the web address that they gave.
It had a couple walking in to a “grand opening” and the owner of the “store” was glitchy, kept failing in midspeech, and starting over.
Anyone else hear that?
A PERFECT EXAMPLE of a LOW INFORMATION POLITICIAN who is a full fledged representative of the LOW INFORMATION VOTER.
Remember, you get what you pay for. When the government is involved...
He resembles a fat toad.
Just called this guys office to ask for their help in signing up for Obamacare, or at least finding how much it would cost me, cuz the website will not allow me in. The aide said it is because of high volume, and I said that’s proven not to be true. Asked again if he could help me find out how much Obamacare would cost me, and he said no he can’t, have a good day.
So predictable. Always projecting their own faults onto others. You guys lost. Majority of Americans did not want it and now a plurality do not want it. We are waiting for our progressive oppressors to admit failure. And many will die of old age before that happens.
That's naive. It'll have to be a situation of "once you're in there you can never leave". It's being run by private insurance companies, and do you seriously think they're going to give you ANYTHING when you first sign up without the fine print saying they can automatically keep taking that money from an account?
The insurance companies have to be out of their minds to sell these policies. If only sick people sign up at first, they're going to lose a fortune until they can raise rates again. And do you think the subsidies will increase when insurance costs do?
It's a financial death spiral. It'll cause more bankruptcies and foreclosures than the mortgage meltdown did. People will be taking out loans to cover deductibles. Local businesses will starve because there will be a lot less expendable income for restaurants, concerts, the local hardware store, etc
I think this mess is such that a lot of people will stay under the radar and not interface with medical care at all. The sad irony is there will be more, not less, uninsured people.
Now is as good a time as any to reform a broken system. I hope the Republicans have the backbone to see this revolt through - for once.
“He’s from Kahllifornia, the same state that sent THIS winner to D.C.”
I live here and Bagdad Jim McDermott is from Washington State and represents the 7th district - Seattle and surrounding areas to be precise. Luckily, I’m in the burbs in Rep Reichert’s district. He’s a Pubbie, somewhat RINO, but I’ll take him over the alternatives (like McDermott), and probably best we can expect from the area, though I’d prefer someone like Steve King (R-IA). Reichert is the former Sheriff that captured the Green River Killer some years ago.
WA is the same state that brings you the illustrious Senators, Patty Osama Mama Murray and Maria Can’t-do-well. Ugh! I’ve adopted Senators Cruz and Lee as my senators.
Ah yes. Staying classy as ever Congressman.
No, f***head, we won the house majority so stuff it up your worthless asses.
He has the liberal UW and Seattle Central Community in his district as well as the largest gay neighborhood in Seattle.
The recently extended his district north to where I live, but voting against him accomplishes nothing with his concentrated consistency of goofballs.
This thing is a subhuman. baghdad jim mcdermott is a complete oaf. Those who elected him must have mush for brains. His smug picture is tiresome...he is tiresome.
I’m sure he knows what the Republicans think because he got the word from another illegal wiretap.
Heh. They don't even know how dirt-poor you have to be to qualify for a fine that low. It's $95 or 1% of your income, whichever is higher. $95 is 1% of $9,500. IOW, if you make more than $9,500, your fine will be higher. For example, if you make $500 per week, that's $26K per year and a fine of $260. I'm sure that amount would be distorted by deductions, but I don't know what line of the 1040 is used to calculate the penalty tax.
I shouldn't be surprised that math is a stranger to the LIVs. Look at how many of them buy lottery tix.
* People in my district are calling in for Obamacare *
Actually, it’s all the D congressmen who LOST their elections in recent years that need to be reminded that their loss means the current Congress has the power to defund unpopular programs.
The toad looks wiser, friendlier, & unlike McDermott you’d want the toad in your backyard snapping up bugs.
Toads are beneficial to man. McDermload is not.
Always fun to listen to “Baghdad Jim” McDirtbag whine.
