Baby killer shouted  on the house floor?

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was quoted Sunday as saying that President Obama and the Democrats, by passing comprehensive health care legislation, "will have destroyed their party much as Lyndon Johnson shattered the Democratic Party for 40 years" with the passage of civil rights legislation.

This is peoples lives the Government is playing with, hopefully no one expected them to say "oh shucks guys, we lost... maybe next time?". As long as no one is being killed, so what.

I'd be willing to bet the same reactions would take place if the tables were reversed. These reactions should be expected with anything of this caliber.

PS, grouping opponents of healthcare with a few nutjobs is basically like saying all Japanese people kill Whales (current event reference!). etc etc

They are not opponents of healthcare, they are opponents of that 2000+ page sham that is called a Healthcare Bill (even though about 1900 of those pages do nothing to improve health care.)

I wonder how many people have actually read the damned thing from start to finish and understood every part of its intentions?

O/U 50?

I'm taking the U on that and just limiting the scope to those people in Congress who voted for it.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Forcing the colonies to pay high taxes is what lead to the American Revolution. Remember when they threw the tea in Boston harbor? That was to protest the new stamp and tea taxes.

Forcing the states to pay taxes to the federal government is all it took to spark the Civil War. Slavery eventually got tacked on to it, but taxes and state sovereignty was the two main issues that caused the war.

Americans simply do not like to pay taxes. It's been that way since the revolution. And its not going to change. If Americans are hit with the taxes that Europeans pay...you are going to have revolts and riots. It's not going to work.

You are playing with other people's money, other people's lives, and people's choices in life. You are playing games with the Constitution. All this is going to make a lot of people very angry.

Stay classy? Why? They have ignored the majority of Americas word. Yet they preach to other countries about the government they run its fair. Ours is? Welcome to the USSA. All hail Obama

Stay classy...    That's what the Chinese government tells their citizens as they trample their human rights as well.

And just what was the Republican plan for health care reform before the Democrats started pushing it?

And I'm sure if you took a poll back in the mid-1960s, a large percentage of Americans would have opposed desegregation.  Sometimes what's right isn't what's popular.

Why? They are supposed to be working for us. And they're not.

When you lose a football game...you stay classy.

You dont stay classy when your government is robbing you and trashing your constitutional rights.

These guys should be first up when the Death Panels are instituted. Disgusting behavior. By disgusting human beings.

Quit beefing about the past and start hoping for the future

Actually there were a series of Republican proposals to reform health care going back into the mid-90's but democratic congresses blocked or refused to act on them - or fillibustered since the R's didn't figure out the parliamentary games that allowed this bill to pass. You wouldn't know that of course so why bother to read or anything.

As for your second moronic point about segregation let's us say this what people opposed wasn't health reform, they opposed THIS health reform. They did so with a legion of good reasons because what we've got is truly legislative sausage. We'd have been better off honestly with a straight single payer plan this this abomination of a bill - not that the SPP is a good option but that is how bad this option is going to be.

They represent ALL OF US, not just the vocal idiots. If you spit on our representatives and call them the N-word, you're insulting all Americans.
