Mike Huckabee Has The Obamacare Sadz

Gizmodo weighs in:

Why does Huckabee, whose daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders just became the White House Press Secretary, want state legislatures to choose US Senators? Obviously he’s frustrated with last night’s failure of the Republicans to repeal Obamacare. But the reason that repeal of the 17th Amendment would favor his party is because the majority of state legislatures are Republican. The Republicans control both chambers in 33 states. Not because the majority of Americans are Republican, mind you. But because Republicans have gerrymandered their way into power.

    Please Mike, sink back into obscurity and take your family with you.

    • Todd20036

      1) Mike cannot sink.
      2) He really cannot ever be obscure, just go through different moon-like phases where you see only parts of him.
      3) His family definitely cannot sink.
      4) There are a few dogs who’d like to have a word or two with “Junior” first.

      • Tawreos

        Let me dream of a world free from Huckabees

  • S1AMER

    When Huckabee and his sort are pissed, you know something good just happened in America!

  • Stogiebear

    He should be counting his lucky stars. Now he and his daughter can both go in and have some much needed work done. I hear Jowls-R-Us is running a two-for-one special.

    Lmao what a fucking baby.

  • So says the hypocritical diabetic.

  • BearEyes

    fuckabee is just pissed more people won’t be harmed by having their healthcare taken away so they go bankrupt.

    • Librarykid

      Isn’t that attitude just brimming over with the love of Christian kindness?

  • Rex

    Republicans have had years to craft a healthcare plan that would benefit the American people, but instead they showed over the past days that they can’t craft their way out of a paper bag. So, yeah, change the Constitution so we can get more of these dunderheads in Washington. It’s statements like this that show the GOP isn’t capable of running government.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Exactly. Well put.

    • Gustav2

      They hate it when they lose so they want to change the rules. Plus Dominionists like Huckabee hate democracy.

          That poor little girl — she looks half-starved! Which one’s the dog-torturer?

          • Mrs. Councillor Nugent

            Not sure which of those Pugsleys tortured that poor dog

          • cheakamus

            It just occurred to me, that poor little girl is now the fat cow shilling for Trump!

        • RidingTheLine

          We sure know which southern “First Family” liked their chicken fried. They could have all benefitted from cutting back on the fried food and hitting the gym now and then.

      • Gregory B

        Even when they change the rules to benefit them, Republicans still can’t win…

    • Rambie

      “Republicans just can’t Govern”

    • JT

      It shows that they’re all fascists at heart, regardless of what they say about “freedom”.

      • Todd20036

        Including most of the “moderate” republicans.

      • Librarykid

        And he was a preacher. Doesn’t he remember Jesus healing people all through the Gospels? What a horrible human.

        • jonfromcalifornia

          He’s evangelical. They have a warped sense of right and wrong. After all, they support Trump and many of their ministers think the pussy grabber and third time divorcee is some kind of God ordained savior.

          • FAEN

            Because at the end of the day money is their real god. Always has been.

      • jonfromcalifornia

        I hope you’re not just now discovering this.

        • JT

          Uh … no. “It shows …”

    • The problem for Republicans with health care reform is that the ACA IS the conservative plan. Anything that would insure more people and lower costs would be much further to the left. If they can’t make Obamacare work, they will get single payer. I’m fine with single payer, but Republicans still think they can do better but after seven years they’ve got nothing, because there is nothing. Also Scaramouche thinks health care should be like the telecoms or the airlines. Seriously does anyone want health insurance like the cable company or Delta Airlines. What we have isn’t that great but holy fuck that would be so much worse!

    • jerry

      Their problem includes “…benefit the American people…”. They don’t want to do that unless it somehow covers a much larger benefit to the corporations and top earners.

    • jonfromcalifornia

      That’s two things that don’t go together in my mind: GOP and benefiting the American people. The only Americans they want to benefit are their rich paymasters like the Kochs and the Adelsons. Everyone else can go to hell.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Now the fats really in the fire.

    • Ernest Endevor

      You are a bad woman. Go to your room. I’ll bring the vodka and we can try to find out what the hell mixers are for.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen

        Bring olives.. I am starving.

  • GeneInSJ

    Time to deport all the Huckabees. And I love that all the WH staff are attacking each other and Trump is just tweeting like an impotent fool.

  • j.martindale

    Gawd almighty! The Senate already is the most undemocratic part of our government, with right wing nut jobs in Idaho representing less than a 20th of the number of voters in California having equal power in our government. Now he wants to cut out the popular vote and make it like the Electoral College! Why don’t these clowns just go to Russia or some other autocratic state where they will be comfortable.

  • Joe in PA

    Not gonna happen Huckster…go back to plan b…the one where the Russians hack the election machines.

  • joe ho

    “The Republicans control both chambers in 33 states. Not because the majority of Americans are Republican, mind you. But because Republicans have gerrymandered their way into power.”

    Because Democrats let them do it.

    Democrats do not vote in midterm elections.

    Democrats lack tribal loyalty.

    In 2010 (census year) they wanted to punish Obama for not being progressive enough. They stayed home. The GOP got redistricting privileges.

    In 2016 the far-left, instead of closing ranks in the face of the existential threat posed by Trump, preferred to sabotage a centrist candidate because their feelings had been hurt and because she didn’t pass their purity test.

    When push comes to shove, the GOP will eat their own vomit to keep Dems out of power. Too bad so many on the left don’t have that level of political discipline. It’s why they lose.

    • Joe in PA

      I got in to a “discussion” over on RawStory…and got called a Clinton apologist. SMFH. The stupid…it….

      • joe ho

        tell them bernie couldn’t even win california–and that was with wikileaks, putin, and the gop helping him.

        a few articles that can help you shutdown those far-left shitstains who sabotaged gore in 2000 and clinton in 2016. they are disgusting.

        http://www.newsweek.com/myths-cost-democrats-presidential-election-521044

        how putin played the far-left into voting against its own interests.

        how the far-right baited the far-left into voting against its own interests.

        • Joe in PA

          Thanks for those.

        • paganguy

          The sad thing is they won’t care. Which is partly why we’re in this mess.

          • Bert_Bauer

            Yeah, I have a Facebook friend I used to work with who is just as bad as Breitbart posting far- left Clinton conspiracies. She’s too far gone so I don’t even bother.

  • Tatonka

    Right. The problem wasn’t that your bill sucked ass. The problem was that your majorities in the house and senate weren’t sufficiently protected from accountability to the voters you’re trying to screw over.

  • Karl Dubhe

    Thanks for confirming that you hate democracy. Just like all the other Republicans hate the idea of people voting for their own government.

    Vermin.

    Then there’s his religious views…

  • Robincho

    “… respect 10th amid” WHAT, you bloated, sub-literate douche?…

  • OdieDenCO

    right, and get a senate that is made of incompetent party hacks much like the current presidential cabinet.

  • joe ho

    Time to have a pig roast with the whole Huckabee clan turning on the spit.

  • Bess Watts

    Repealing the 17th Amendment has come straight out of ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) this year. If you don’t know about ALEC – you need to.

    • Rambie

      Typical GOP’ers, when they can’t win they’ll change the rules. When they can’t change the rules, they’ll cheat

    • If Democrats don’t turn out bigtime for the midterms we may get a constitutional convention that takes away everything we’ve won over the past 100 years.

    • jerry

      In those 33 state legislatures, the GOP members also can’t govern…they just copy bills straight from the ALEC website. Often, those bills get killed on technical problems because they didn’t even bother changing the wording for their own state code.

    • Kenster999

      Thanks for the heads-up. I guess that means I’ll be hearing more about it in the future. And ditto-heads will take up the cry.

  • Gigi

    Anything that upsets the Huckster makes me supremely happy!

  • Dot Beech

    This bastard should get down on his knees and beg his wrathful God to forgive him for passing along that ugly face to his daughter.

  • LeeCMH

    Awe, tsk, tsk, tsk. pitiful.

  • Acronym Jim

    It’s also easier to bribe state legislatures with either cash, business contracts or political favors than it is to bribe an entire state’s population.

    There were plenty of good reasons to implement the 17th amendment, but rampant corruption and cronyism was probably the most pressing.

    • Kruhn

      That’s how the 17th Amendment actually got passed. An Illinois Senator, William Lorimer, bought his seat in such a disgusting way that the Senate actually invalidated the election and removed Senator Lorimer from his seat. Shortly thereafter the 17th Amendment was adopted. Fun fact: Lorimer’s seat would be ironically the one that a little under a Century later would be occupied by one Barack Hussein Obama.

  • Mark

    Fuck. You.

  • olandp

    The problem with that is things can change. It was the Republican party that wanted an amendment limiting the President to two terms, because they didn’t ever want another FDR. They later talked about repeal because they couldn’t elect Alzheimer’s Reagan to a third term. Be careful Mike, you may get what you wish for…

  • Shumer need to go. Now. Last night’s “performance” was infuriating. He repeated right wing lies about how the ACA was passed and set up Cornyn’s use of those lies in his speech. He sucks at his job and we don’t have time for that. He’s a mediocre leader at a time when we need a great one. That was a moment Democrats needed to be in top form and he fumbled. Enough. He needs to go.

    Also, I’m still laughing that they thought they were going to bully Murkowski. She survived losing a GOP primary and running as a write-in candidate and WINNING. People in Alaska like her. If they didn’t they know how to vote her out. Huckabee hates the system because it isn’t giving Republicans the result they want. They know they can only win by rigging the system. More Americans vote for a D than an R in Congressional elections and yet they still have a majority in the House. If you can only win by cheating maybe it’s because you have a shitty team.

  • Helen Damnation™

    I forgot why we are paying attention to Mike Huckabee, again?

  • The Milkman

    Gurl you couldn’t even repeal limited portions of the ACA, and you think you can repeal the 17th amendment? Why not just call a constitutional convention and start the whole thing over from scratch? Sounds about as feasible.

  • MUELLER KNOWS

    Boo f’ing hoo, fat man. Go stress eat a pie.

  • Bert_Bauer

    Poor little Christofascist Fuckabee is typical of conservatives who “love” the Constitution so much they want to gut it.

  • dcurlee

    Go on Huck keep showing us that good Christian love. Hypocrite period

  • Ben in Oakland

    Power to the people, except for the power to the people part, right mike?

  • JWC

    Rather than control the vboters why don’t you contol what they have to vote on

  • Richard B

    Mike Huckabee says the most stupid things …
    It really shows Huckabee never went to (maybe didn’t pass) a Civics or American History class when he was in school – was probably on his knees praying too much.
    As that famous old saying goes, ” Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.”
