Cottonmouth: Mississippians Have Health Insurance; Republicans Upset

Republicans Claim They Want To Repeal Obama Care!

"...Thousands of Mississippians now have private health insurance plans - including yours truly - and our state's Republican leaders still think this is a bad idea. Take, for instance, career-long government employee and Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Tupelo Miss): 

“This is yet another desperate attempt by the administration to persuade young people to enroll in the president’s unaffordable, unworkable, and unpopular policy,” Wicker said in a statement. “Rather than spending an inordinate amount of time and taxpayer dollars to roll out celebrity endorsements and slick advertisements, the president should work with Republicans to find real market-driven solutions to America’s health care crisis.”-- Cotton Mouth Blog.Mississippi

Democrats Relish The Chance To Attack Republicans Over Austere Budget

"Austerity Will Never Lead To Prosperity"--Chi Man Sam April, 11, 2014.
WASHINGTON, April 10 (Reuters) - Democrats in the U.S. Congress can hardly contain their glee over the latest Republican budget plan, even though they loathe the details of the blueprint that would cut programs for the poor and funding of medical research.
Democrats view the document as a potent weapon in the November congressional elections and are betting that its emphasis on austerity and cuts to popular programs such as Medicare will provoke a backlash against Republicans.

House Passes GOP Budget

House Passes GOP Budget

"WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has passed a GOP budget blueprint that promises a balanced federal ledger in 10 years through sweeping cuts across the federal budget and eliminating health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act."

My favorite reader comment from the above article:

"Republicans once again take from the poor and give it to the rich in Ryan's budget.  I think that is a Reverse Robin Hood philosophy.
In America today, 6 in 10 Adults go to bed hungry at night and 4 in 10 Children go to bed hungry.  Yet Republicans want to cut food stamps which would only make these numbers increase, not decrease.
Ryan's budget will cut taxes for the very rich in this country and raise taxes on the poor in this country.  Republicans are against raising the minimum wage in this country that could help people who work 40 hours a week and still live in poverty feed their family.
Republicans want to repeal the ACA, but they want to keep the tax cuts that are in the ACA,  just take away the health coverage that 10 million Americans are now enrolled in.
Jesus tells us to feed the hungry and care for the sick.  He tells us what we do to the least among us, we do to Him.  But Republicans have undoubtedly skipped Matthew 25 while they were thumping their Bibles.
Our church has a backpack program where we fill backpacks with food for children that are on reduced or free lunches at school so that they can have food on the weekends.  But we're just one church in one city in one state.  
It breaks my heart to think that Magnolia eats better than some children in this country and that Republicans pass a bill like this."

Mormon Leader Outlines Opposition To Gay Marriage

I'm inclined to believe that the word "Hypocrite" originated with the Prophet J. Smith and his Mormon Religion! "Apes Created Man, Man Created God." Man created the "Mormon Cult." Polygamy was included and accepted in the Mormon Church, the Christian Bible. Leave Gay people alone!!--ABratt

"I watched this earlier today. Makes me want to go out and buy a case of honey maid products. This was just stunning - a beautiful way for the company to make a point and stand up to the religious bullies like OMM and AFA."
