On the Shutdown

Some politics to go with all my whining....

“Dealing with terrorists has taught us some things,” said Washington Rep. Jim McDermott after voting no on one of Thursday’s GOP bills. “You can’t deal with ’em. 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.” Why would House Democrats give away what the Supreme Court and the 2012 electorate didn’t? “You can’t say, OK, you get half of Obamacare—this isn’t a Solomonic decision,” McDermott said. “So we sit here until they figure out they fuckin’ lost.
 That's right, Tea Baggers.  You lost.

You lost when Obamacare passed both houses of Congress.  You lost when Obama signed it into law.  You lost when it was challenged in court and found constitutional by John Roberts himself.  You lost the last election.  And you're going to lose this fight as well.
