Tony Perkins Celebrates Obamacare Repeal Vote

Via press release from hate group leader Tony Perkins:

When Majority Leader Mitch McConnell woke up this morning, he knew today was about one thing: moving on. Whether that meant moving on to the much-awaited health care debate or moving on to another strategy, no one knew.

Halfway through the GOP’s weekly lunch, even the senators themselves had no idea how the rest of the day would unfold. But one thing was certain — the afternoon would be a defining moment for the repeal effort that put Republicans in power.

And in a huge boost to the GOP’s morale, Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) was there to see it. Despite his own health care scare, the Arizona leader made the long trip to D.C. to join what he hoped would be history in the making.

“Many of us have waited literally years for this moment to finally arrive,” Senator McConnell said, “and at long last, it has.” With McCain on deck, the Republicans did what seemed impossible only a few days before — voted to proceed on the debate that millions of American people have been waiting for.

After days of uncertainty, common sense ultimately prevailed, and by the narrowest of margins, the Senate agreed to press forward on a rollback of Obama’s failure of a health care law. “Sometimes you have to stand up and be counted,” said a Hill staffer. “You have to have a clarifying vote.” And Americans got one.

In the end, only liberal Republicans Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) defied constituents, voting to end the discussion before it began. Despite having fair warning about Collins’s defection, fellow Republicans could only shake their heads.

“It’s inexplicable to me why anyone — including Democrats — wouldn’t vote to allow us to debate the bill and offer amendments,” Senator John Kennedy (R-La.) told reporters. After all, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) pointed out, the motion to proceed is the logical place to start fixing the measure’s problem areas.

“Any senator can introduce any amendment that he or she wishes … that’s the way the process works.” Obviously, Collins and her Democratic friends would rather obstruct the conversation than further it.

      General laws of spatial and temporal locality of events makes that quite possible.

    Tony Perkins Celebrates shoots his wad early on Obamacare Repeal Vote

    AND, McCain wasn’t just there to see it, he was there to cause it.

  • JWC

    the only ammendmants you want to offer are to tottaly gut the system Gop be proud you got rid of the biggest block of Obama name off your radar Hope you have a good answer fot’Murica when you tell them that the ACA is gone to

  • JWC

  • JCF
  • Harveyrabbit
  • Brooklyn Joe

    I would hate to be his wife – can you imagine waking up to him everyday – he’s not human – he’s always on – the Tony Show

    • clay

      Maybe she gets to stay in (Mississippi? Louisiana?) while he’s in DC?

    • Gigi

      She’s happy. She gets to wear a strap-on.

  • Dramphooey

    “Defied constituents.” Working class Republicans want this to go away.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok
  • -M-

    “health care scare”? McCain had surgery and was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer that will most likely kill him in well under a year.

    And that was the least awful thing about PerKKKie’s statement.

    • jimbo65

      When the cancer does kill him, I’m having a media black out. Have no desire to hear about that fucking hypocrite being regaled as a war hero and “lion” of the senate.

      • Ninja0980

        Same thing I do when bigots who waged war on us (like one in my mom’s home state of Kansas) die.
        They were horrible human beings when they were alive and them dying won’t change that.

  • Tomcat

    One question, do the republicans understand WHAT DEBATE means?
    It does not mean they get to just ram their ideas in and leave Democrats out of the debate.

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      Thats exactly what it means for republicans…..
      Ram your agenda thru at all costs.
      Run to the safe press outlets and claim u had a comprehensive debate before you rammed it thru
      Propaganda 101

  • Gigi

    This literally made me LOL!

    • Oh, Parker

      I noticed that too and LOLed!

    • Dramphooey

      Eagle eye! I miss those little jokes.

  • jimbo65

    I’d like to know what kind of insurance this asshole has. And if he’s paying for it out of pocket, or through his outfit, no doubt paid for by the donation from rubes. Obviously he’s never had to worry about his own personal fucking healthcare. I swear I hate the world right now.

    • Todd20036

      McCain? He has single payer option, like I do, but his premiums are even lower than mine are.

      Being a federal employee has its perks.

      But I don’t vote for Nazis.

  • Stephen Elliot Phillips

    Perkkkins is a gargantuan, dirty, stinking, gaping asshole.

  • jm2

    even Trump doesn’t know that they DID NOT REPEAL the ACA nor replace it with anything. what they did is vote to MOVE it to the floor of the Senate for debate. Even though McCain voted for this he very emphatically said, “I WILL NOT VOTE FOR THIS BILL AS IT IS WRITTEN!” of course, no one knows which of the bills it is…

    • clay

      McConnell immediately introduced an amendment to strip out all RyanCare 2.0 language and insert his own, eliminating all ACA taxes (funding) and eliminating nearly all abortion coverage (violating the ‘budget reconciliation’ rules).

      • jm2

        unfortunately, they have the power to overrule the Parliamentarian 🙃!

    This Yiddish curse on every Republican who voted for the Motion to Proceed (increased in potency 10-fold due to it being transmitted via the Evil Eye).

    Gut zol oyf im onshikn fin di tsen makes di beste.

    • Kruhn

      May I make an amendment? May God visit him the best of the Ten Plagues cranked to 100.

        Boils. I’ll settle for boils (but not on their livestock).
        Then the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Take handfuls of soot from a furnace and have Moses toss it into the air in the presence of Pharaoh. It will become fine dust over the whole land of Egypt, and festering boils will break out on men and animals throughout the land.”

        — Exodus 9:8–9

        • Kruhn

          I’m more partial to the first born solution. I’m in an Old Testament God mentality with these motherfuckers.

          • Beagle

            As the first-born son of 2 RWNJs, I respectfully object to that plague.

          • Kruhn

            Remember that you can avoid that by putting the blood of a lamb on your door posts.

  • Natty Enquirer

    There goes another irony meter. A Republican complaining about obstructing the conversation.

  • Megrim Twist

    My blood pressure cannot handle this day! Or any other day at this point! They can all fuck off and when they get there, they can fuck off again until they come back and then they can fuck right off once more! Fuck off!

    • Ginger Snap

      I’d like to add an extra fuck off to your list just in case they missed one.

  • Ken M

    Go back to your “non political cross burning” you GOP C**K sucker.

  • Christopher

    It is long past time for this man to have a debilitating stroke. I want him to be nothing more than a drooling idiot who comprehends EVERYTHING around him, and yet can do absolutely nothing about it.

    As far as I’m concerned he can literally rot in a corner while wearing his dirty diaper.

    • sfjohn

      I prefer something more prolonged and painful for tone-tone

  • SoCalGal20

    My mood (both regarding Tony and the GOP).

    • KnownDonorDad

      I love his inflection of “furrrrrrrious anger!”

    • Kruhn

      Can we make Samuel L. Motherfucking Jackson an honorary gay?

  • TominDC

    Perkins is the type of Christian that makes this atheist wish god existed.

    Witnessing (ha!) his attempts to explain himself would be worth whatever non-believers are supposed to get.

  • Adam Stevens

    Tony Perkins is actually employed as the devil’s butler. Has been since the late 80’s.

    (Very few people know this, so let’s keep it here in the room, guys.)

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Behold, the face of American Christianity, in all its insipid, spite and venal glory. A curse upon you Tony Perkins, that you suffer as those you have condemned to suffer. May your life turn cold, brittle and broken. May your mouth know only the taste of ash and bone. May your dreams be as nightmares, forever haunting you until they finally drive you to madness. Then, at the moment you reach sheer exhaustion from all that has befallen you, then you will have my permission to kiss my ass and die.

  • When a headline starts with “Tony Perkins Celebrates…” everything that follows must be horrible.

    Of course! Jesus was well known for letting lepers suffer and plague victims die miserably. It’s 33 years later than predicted but “up” is finally “down”.

    • KnownDonorDad

      We have always been at war with Eastasia.

  • Dana Chilton

    Absolute proof that Perkins is neither pro life nor moral

  • 2patricius2

    Cause Tony believes that people don’t deserve health care and should die. Just another pro-death Republican.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Perkins needs another flood. He didn’t get a message from the first one. Maybe a whole bunch of floods.

  • Richard B

    To see Tony Perkins gloat over the prospect of 20-30 million poor people lose access to healthcare, is despicable and makes me sick to my stomach. This anti-LGBTQ bigot who runs one of the most vile SPLC designated hate group in the world and annoyingly wears his religion as a badge on his shoulder, ironically still claims to speak for biblical values.

  • Dale Snyder

    Yep, just what this orange hair-dyed piece of christian shit wanted.

    Innocent people dying in a “first world country” to make the wealthy more wealthy.

    Fuck you, you christian piece of shit.

  • Kruhn

    Dear Tonette,

    Please acquaint yourself with fist and my foot because they’ll be beating the hell out of your traitorous sorry ass! You motherfucking traitorous son of a mutated, syphilistic, lovechild of Elmer Fudd and a 70s Shag rug! How fucking piece of shit! read your own FUCKING BIBLE!!!!

    You say we queers are going to Hell because we’re immoral fudge packers (no offense to my LGBTQ+LMNOPQRSTYUV brothers and sisters but I’m angry as hell with this cheap excuse for a person). Read Matthew 25:31-46 and the Parable of the Sheep and Goats. In fact I’ll leave you the punchline!

    41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

    44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

    45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

    46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

    See you in Hell motherfucker! Hope you love the ball gag while little demons strap you down to a fuck machine, because none of us is touching that putrid thing with a ten foot pole.
