Good. They're both enablers who helped bring about the scandalous events that created a need for the honors in the first place.

Refusing to shake Mitch's scutum and McCarthy's paw puts them in their place. Somehow, Mitch will joke about it and Kevin will claim that Nancy Pelosi put them up to it...

Gladys Sicknick, mother of fallen officer Brian Sicknick, was asked by
@DaniellaMicaela
why she didn't shake McCarthy and McConnell's hands at the Gold medal ceremony

"They're just two-faced," she said (1/2)

"I'm just tired of them standing there and saying how wonderful the Capitol Police is and then they turn around and ... go down to Mar-A-Lago and kiss his ring and come back and stand here and sit with--It just, it just hurts," Gladys Sicknick told
@DaniellaMicaela (2/2)

You're fat orange-faced leader killed a cop and you love it, you disgusting pile of inhuman excrement. Too bad you're anonymous, I'd take care of scum like you the way you deserve.

Can you blame them? Trump and the Republican hoard incited the riot. Trump is a poor sport about losing.

Look at the face McConnell is making. He was laughing to himself on the inside and didn't bother even trying to hide is amusement.

Because he's a pile of garbage.

It was, actually.

Only a classless righty used to theatrics and school yard nonsense would think anything otherwise.

Very much so compared to how many other Americans would have reacted to those --------. A punch in the face would have been entirely appropriate.

Well, he wasn't crawling head-first through a pane of broken glass to assassinate some Congressman.

I wouldn't have shaken their hands either. Or probably any other Repub.

Until they can ------ themselves and get up off their knees, there isn't much reason to show them anything but disdain.

They didn't refuse to shake hands because of political position...that would be ------. They did so because McCarthy and McConnell chose to let Trump slip his dick down their throats while they thanked him for it.

100%, the reason the Republican's ditched Liz Cheney is because she exposed them for the ------- they were. She was what they wanted to be, but couldn't out of fear of disappointing their master.

He had a heart attack after being beaten and sprayed with chemicals by a violent mob sent by a fascist pychopath to destroy democracy.

McCarthy and McConnell wanting to shake the hands of the Capitol police heroes is obscene beyond the point of being outrageous.

It would have been awesome had the mother kneed McConnell in

"Patriotic americans have a long proud history of fighting nazis."

And an even longer, prouder history of fighting socialists. The ones that weren't 'National' socialists.

Well, Republicans fought tooth and nail against Socialized Medicine and Social Security.

Do you have battlefield examples as well? Perhaps funding the Contras?

Not really, but Canada is bad enough.

Do you really think US citizens want the government to ban private healthcare?

And can we please stop referring to US citizens as "Americans?" US citizens are Americans, but not all Americans are US citizens. There are two full continents full of Americans over in this hemisphere.

Why TF are you still peddling that lie? I linked to proof two nights ago you were badly misrepresenting the truth. NO ONE wants to ban all private healthcare. Can't you ------- read?!?

You're right, you're right, you're right. Sorry.

You can still get ---- jobs or other forms of cosmetic surgery. Anything that is not offered by the government plan.

IF THE CARE IS PROVIDED BY THE GOVERNMENT, PRIVATE PROCUREMENT WOULD BE ILLEGAL.

That came from the articles I posted, as well as the one you did.

In other words, if you needed a hip replacement, you get the hip replacement when the government approves it. You can't pay a premium to get it quicker, or pay more for to get a single room rather than a hospital ward...you get what the government gives you when the government chooses to give it to you.

Under this construct, one would pray that the healthcare services provided by government would be minimal. Just to make sure you could still get them.

We have that already.

You can't be turned away from the minimal services provided in the ER.

Yes, they would outlaw exact same plans.

That is NOT the same as banning all private insurance.

Please learn the difference.

You just know the cops were searched for weapons why? Because everyone knows McConnell and McCarthy deserve a severe beating.

We're saying the same thing.

You could still get a mommy makeover or a ---- job through private insurance, but a hip replacement or surgery to repair a hernia, not so much.

So yes, it would be more accurate to say that Bernie would ban all private, non-cosmetic healthcare. Unless the Bernie plan didn't include stuff like hip replacements or hernia repair, in which case they would still be available to those who could pay, but unavailable to those who couldn't.

Are you saying there are private insurers who cover voluntary cosmetic surgery? In what country?

What bernie wants is for everyone to have access to the same health care. So if the rich want better health care, they would have to improve health care for the poor as well. Which they could do if they wanted.

"We're saying the same thing."

No, we're not. M4A would NOT ban all other health insurance.

"So yes, it would be more accurate to say that Bernie would ban all private, non-cosmetic healthcare."

No, it wouldn't. Supplemental plans would abound. You clearly don't know WTF you're talking about.
