  •  How do you fix something (1+ / 0-)

    if you have to shut up about it?  How the hell are you ever going to know what's wrong, or that there is anything wrong, in the first place?  STFU as a policy of "inclusion" has its shortcomings, though I don't expect any members of the political classes to grasp this.

    Pay no attention to the upward redistribution of wealth!

    •  Actually, one of the biggest problems with the (0+ / 0-)

      STFU meme, is that most people read it as 100% across the board, even when it's clearly stated that no one is telling anyone to shut up entirely.

      In this case, Shut Up means the GOP needs to snap their trap on two important key points.

      1. Stop saying it's an affront to democracy and it should be repealed - as the stupid R's continue to try and do.

      2. Stop saying that everyone hates it, and that it's costing everyone more money, when both things are false.

      The point is, until they shut up about their false assertions and partisan attempts to shut ACA down, no one is going to fix the things that are wrong with ACA - because they're too busy trying to throw the ocean out with the bathwater.
