Illustrating what's wrong with the Right.
When speaking of the death of Nelson Mandela, Rick Santorum took the opportunity to compare apartheid to the Affordable Care Act while implying that those, like him, who opposed it were equivalent to Nelson Mandela for opposing apartheid laws.
Sorta makes Santorum a better Black man than president Obama.
As we all know, helping people with the use of safety nets like Unemployment and SNAP causes them to become lazy and dependent. And we all know this to be true because someone said it, and it has been repeated by many. And we also know that if it is repeated without challenge, then it just has to be true.
We’ve heard a lot about people having their insurance policies canceled, and the person blamed for this is the president. Nevermind that the insurance companies have had three years to begin modifying policies to bring them in line with the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, but chose instead to continue selling their old policies until they had no choice.
Just don't let them know what's really bad for them.
Under the senate rules for the filibuster, once one is called, no one needs to do anything but get a super majority to end it. There is no need for long speeches or any action. Calling a filibuster allows the minority party to control the work of the senate.
