Tuesday Morning News Dump Shutdown

Look at what you've done you stupid Republican a$$holes!

Look! The Panda camera is down because you didn't give Obama everything he wanted. Who do these Republicans Representatives and Senators think they are? A opposition party that was elected to pursue the interests of the 48% of American who voted for them? A party currently in the minority whose job is to retard the President's agenda and look out for the interests of the sizable American minority? Couldn't you wait until the next battle? You know the one that we totally would fight and win. Or at least pick a battle that didn't involve the Panda Cam or twitter accounts for inanimate objects like the Voyager 2!

Since the stupid Republicans decided to shutdown the government, the American people won't notice that the Obamacare exchanges don't work. It's not like 30-50 million people are going to try to sign up using healthcare.gov and notice the website doesn't work.

I know, I know, some of you will say, "But Ben, the tens of millions of people will attempt to sign up only to find that the healthcare.gov website doesn't work and they will become frustrated and angry at President Obama." First, address me as Mr.Ben a$$holes and don't look me in the eye when you speak to me. Second, no they won't. How could they possibly know if the MSM doesn't tell them? Do you think people draw conclusions from their own personal experiences?

John Q. Jagoff out in Wyoming won't know that the cheapest plan he can get under Obamacare is $425* a month unless Paul Krugman of the New York Times tells him. Don't you understand this is a battle of above the fold bylines in newspapers no one reads and chyrons on TV channels no one watches. This is a game of inside baseball Washington D.C. politics.

Heck, I received a letter from my insurance company this week telling me they're closing my plan at the end of 2014, but I completely forgot because REPUBLIKKKAN SHUTDOWN!!!1!1! Sure, according to this chart it looks like I'm going to have to pay 100% more per month for a health insurance plan with less coverage than the one I already have, but what does that matter because SHUTDOWN! Do you fools honestly think that Americans will be more angry about the increased costs for their insurance, their inability to sign up for new insurance on healthcare.gov, losing their current individual insurance, losing their employer provided insurance, or having their hours cut back to part time than they are about SHUTDOWN!!!!1!1!?

The media was just DYING to cover the failure of Obamacare before this shutdown happened. The failure of Obamacare was going to be the event that launched 10,000 in depth stories of failure. Now it's going to be all shutdown all the time for the MSM. It's amazing to me you idiots would support a shutdown of our beloved federal government. This is unprecedented.**

*Seriously, check it out. The cheapest plan for someone in Wyoming is $425/month. That's $5,100 per year or around 10% of the median household income for a Wyomingin...Wyomining-ite?

**Actually it has happened 17 times in the last 37 years.

Follow me on twitter so I can yell at you stupid fools some more!
