These conservative reformers are total frauds.   They don’t really want to change policy.  That’s why they would never support cutting taxes on working-class families partly by eliminating deductions for high-earners.   It is also why none of them have come up with plans to expand the availability of health insurance.    And none of them would ever consider using monetary policy to moderate economic downturns as an alternative to the overblown fears of inflation voiced by many of last year’s Republican presidential candidates.

Besides, I’m not concerned with “issues” like the “take home pay” of “working parents.”  That isn’t what really matters.  The important things in life have nothing to do with you or your children.  What matters is that Republicans are horrible, horrible people.  Did you hear about Ted Cruz?  No?  Well, then you should be watching more Hardball with Chris Matthews .  Don’t worry about what happens to your family’s health insurance if you lose your job.  Obama is on that, and we don’t need you getting confused with other suggestions.  It doesn’t matter if Republicans think they can build a health care program for low-income American that provides the benefits of health insurance at much lower cost to the taxpayers.

You need to keep your eye on the ball.  What really matters isn’t health care, or taxes, or increasing economic growth.  What really matters is the time Louie Gohmert said . . .

What do you mean you don’t know who Louie Gohmert is?  How long has it been since you went on the Media Matters website?  You need to get your priorities straight and your mind right.
