    House Republicans from the Far West and from the Northeast favored the Senate’s compromise bill by large margins, and Midwesterners were split; but in the South, Republican opposition was overwhelming, 81–12, accounting for more than half of the total Republican “no” votes. In other words, Republicans outside the South have begun to turn pink, following the political tendencies of the country as a whole, but Southern Republicans, who dominate the Party and its congressional leadership, remain deep scarlet. These numbers reveal something more than the character of today’s Republican Party; a larger historical shift is under way.

      Narrow minds, filled with hate for a Black President, and filled with ignorance of what is happening even to them too, perpetrated by the Republicans, continue to support those Members of Congress who misrepresent the South.

      Never forget that Lex Luthor ... er, Rick Scott, governor of Florida, refused the Medicaid Expansion for his own state.  Then he got the brain fart to sue the Obama administration for withholding the Expansion from Florida.

      And the voters down here in Florida don't know the difference.  Their inbred hatred of our President is overwhelming, and closes their minds to the possibility that their own governor has well and truly screwed them.  800,000 or more Floridians cannot get the healthcare they need, because of their governor.

      And the Republicans will make sure that they lay the blame at the feet of the Democrat in the White House!

      Sometimes, you need a sensa uma!
