    Not the issue. The ideas, not the vote, were republican in origin. Sorry.

    It is indeed the issue. Twas Democrats that made this law, not Republicans. They are accountable for A) the fact that they thought this would work and B) their actions in turning it into law.

    that is actually not terribly accurate. Romneycare was - what - 27 pages? Obamacare was.... 2000? Let's just say some stuff got added in

    The idea behind the Emancipation Proclamation was Republican too but the Republicans are still cast as a racist bunch.

    No, it isn't. And page number doesn't change it. Nearly every idea had a republican root to it. Blame democrats for borrowing from them if you want. Blame them for implementing their ideas. But the ideas were from republicans.

    So we will put boo down for a vote for "blame Republicans for the actions of Democrats".

    Why, I'll bet that that congitive dissonance doesn't even hurt any more, does it, eh?

    Are they a racist bunch? If not, you agree with me. Truth has nothing to do with aspersions.

    That would be incorrect. I say both will share blame and praise, depending on how it pans out. Democrats did let the tea party demonizing influence them and did implement republican ideas. They too can't escape responsibility for that. Everyone is responsible for the things they are responsible for.

    Do you cast them as such? I know the lefties do it on more than an occasional basis.

    Nope. I don't. Those things are better judged based on specific actions and individuals.

    Don't worry about him too much Boo. Notice how quickly he ran away when I pointed out he was lying about referencing the CBO, and showed what the CBO actually said. It's kinda typical. He just made this thread for a right wing circle jerk, facts are not welcome here.
