Bill Cassidy Literally Yawns As Police Drag Screaming Disabled Protesters Out Of Trumpcare Hearing [VIDEO]

Law Newz reports:

Chaos erupted in the Senate today as hearings began on the Graham-Cassidy bill which aims to repeal and replace Obamacare. Almost as soon as the gavels went down to initiate the hearings, pro-healthcare protesters with the organization ADAPT–which stands for Americans Disabled Attendant Programs Today–made their presence felt.

A chant began, “No cuts to Medicaid, save our liberty!” Senators reacted angrily, aghast and nonchalant as police swooped down on the chanting demonstrators. At first the Capitol cops tried to talk the red-shirted citizens into quieting, but that quickly went nowhere and the chants continued.

Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) then recessed the committee hearings so that police could remove the remaining protesters. But as the scene unfolded, the bill’s co-author didn’t seem to mind his political opponents being carted off for their shouted interruptions. As the final protesters were taken out by police, Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) sat and yawned.

      • bambinoitaliano

        It’s the hypocricy oath he is exercising.

        So did Rand Paul.

        • GayOldLady

          I loathe Rand Paul. His ideology is so fucked up even he doesn’t know what he’s for and what he’s against. He’s much like Paul Ryan, a true Ayn Randian.

          • Blackfork

            Exactly. Try reading the libertarian platform sometime — between the lines. You’ll see exactly what those people stand for. They stand for doing anything to anybody anytime they want in any way they want wherever they want.

      • fuzzybits

        I’m sure he’s thinking of his next Mercedes or BMW.

        • GayOldLady

          Probably. “maybe I’ll go with a Porsche or a Bentley this time”.

            The only thing that they care about are their donors and keeping their legal bribes flowing.

          Would I be too far out of line to hope that he gets his wish, and it’s a hearse?

      • Steverino

        The oath he swore is to the almighty dollar. That is why quacks like him have been screaming against “socialized medicine” for decades.

      • DesertSun59

        Cassidy, as you can see here, only listens to donors. Constituents or those affected by the GOP’s callous disregard for human life are irrelevant to any equation they’re involved in.

      • Luddite

        Another Right Winger doctor. What a disgusting piece of pig shit he is.

      • My teabagger congresscritter is an MD too. He’s just fine with people dying because they can’t afford medical treatment and so is Cassidy.

    • Todd20036

      Closer to hundreds of thousands.
      When 20+ million people are kicked off of the roles, some of them are going to die.

      • Chucktech

        Oh, well… for these rat bastard traitors, a thousand would be a tragedy. Hundreds of thousands would be a statistic. Now, where’s that tax cut?

    • another_steve

      The Republicans don’t really want to do this repeal thing. They really don’t. For the last eight years it was all just red meat for their thug supporters. Pretend red meat.

      They want to go back to tax cuts for the wealthy and screwing their mistresses in the Senate cloakroom. Hence the yawn.

      • Chucktech

        They need a win. That’s all this is. And, BONUS! They fulfill a rilly rilly stoopid campaign promise.

        • another_steve

          This repeal thing would be a catastrophe for their reelection chances, and they know it. Can you imagine the ads their Democratic opponents would put out next fall?

          “This is your elderly mother being evicted from her Medicaid nursing home in 2021 due to Congressperson X’s vote last year to repeal Obamacare.”

          If I were in my old job, boy oh boy could I write them some good stuff to put out in their ads.

          The Rethugs secretly hope this whole thing will go away.

          • UrsusArctos

            There’s a fly in the ointment. Too much of the Democratic leadership in owned by the same folks as the GOP thugs. They won’t go after the GOP in the way you’re describing because their paymasters (often the same ones as the GOP) prefer a token opposition, not someone who is actually going to do good for the under-0.0001% classes.
            It’s not a matter of “both sides the same”, it’s a matter of money overpowering democracy.

          • another_steve

            I’ve been saying this for a while now, UA: The Dems need to start playing rough and dirty. Hillary Clinton lost in November in part because she played nice. She didn’t go “there.”

            If the Dems don’t go “there,” they’ll never again have control of Congress or the White House.

          • UrsusArctos

            *GRIN* Yep, we have this conversation every so often. I was pretty sure where you are/were on this. Restating these things helps others decide how to take me (and you) if there’s a consistent opinion out there over time.

          • Chucktech

            Oh, now, now, now, Democrats don’t do such unseemly things as call out Republican perfidy and ignominy…

    • shellback

      You have to expect that sort of thing from FUCKING NAZIS.

    • Scott MB

      What do you expect?!? These are the same people that left the 9/11 responders to suffer without adiquate healthcare once it became to expensive. Heros never get what is owed to them, they just get pushed aside like garbage and it is shameful.

      My father returned from Vietnam to be spit on and called a baby killer, humiliated. It took almost 40 years for them to diagnose him with PTSD, that was only after a suicide attempt. Oh go figure, sending an 18 year old to kill and then don’t take care of them when they return. This is typical of the US as it goes to their vets. Oh they parade them around like dogs at the Westminster, but when it comes to really taking care of them, spending acutal money on their care oh that’s asking too much. Why should they, after all they only gave their lives for this country, they got paid for it so that seems that is all that is due them per the US government.

      I remember when people were coming out of Desert Storm messed up and the military/government was saying it had nothing to do with the war. PTSD wasn’t real it was just a bunch of guys trying to fake something you can’t see to get money. PTSD has been going on in every war. The government could give a shit about its vets until they need one to make themselves look good. Fucking shamefull!!!

      • ColdCountry

        And HOW LONG did it take the military to recognize that nurses in war, especially the field stations, could suffer from PTSD? HOW LONG before they extended care to them? Not to mention that we are the only country that doesn’t take care of the children produced by our soldiers in foreign countries.

      • And we’ve been aware of PTSD for at least 100 years now. After WW1 we called it “shell shock” but it’s the same thing. After WW2 my uncle drank himself to death. And after Viet Nam, and Iraq and…well same problem, different forms of self-medication. We know what it is but for some reason we don’t want to deal with it. Well this is what war is and if you don’t like paying for the treatment soldiers need when they get home, then don’t send them off to be shot at.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Sadly, they won’t. Not because they don’t want to but because they themselves are in such disarray. Between trying to be the adults in the room while having to deal with petulant, whiny puritans nipping at their every move, it’s almost impossible for them to get anything done. If this isn’t tragic enough to consider, ponder the stark reality of 2018. Unless liberals and the left get over their puritanical warring, the GOP will solidify it’s base….and if past midterms and the last election are any indication, people are willing to burn everything down around them just so they can say they were right.

      Now, having written all that, I will be thrilled nay, ecstatic, to be proven wrong.

      • The_Wretched

        The “whiny puritans” have been calling for the Dems to do exactly things like standing up and pointing out the Republicans are cruel. The problem isn’t pointing out the spineless Dems. The problem is the Dems’s spinelessness.

        • Jean-Marc in Canada

          It’s both, actually.

  • jerry
  • Well it’s not like the GOP Senate is there to represent the people or anything. And you certainly don’t see the rich protesting the tax cuts they stand to get out of this.

    Question: In the GOP is there a weekly contest as to who can be the weeks best asshole or is that just a recurring thing

    • Mike__in_Houston

      Sadly, nobody has to compete for that title. They just go about their daily business and a different POS floats to the top each week.

    • Mike_in_the_Tundra

      They consider themselves lucky that it turns into a weekly contest.

    • clay

      • DonnaLee

        I think that would fix everything. With the health care part of things at least.

      • Man_in_the_mists

        Fun fact: During the ACA debate a republican proposed exactly that. He quickly withdrew it after the democrats stampeded to co-sponsor it.

  • Gustav2

    This is not about healthcare, this is about tax cuts.
    This is not about healthcare, this is about tax cuts.
    This is not about healthcare, this is about tax cuts.
    This is not about healthcare, this is about tax cuts.

    • The_Wretched

      It’s also about the oligarchs feeling like they are getting serviced by the republicans.

    • It *is* about healthcare in the sense America’s oligarch class wants the proles to be in fear for their lives, constantly, because such people are easier to control, dominate, and oppress. The rich bastards *want* the poor, when they become sick, to forfeit every penny they ever earned and saved. They want the non-rich not to have the option to change jobs or to start new small businesses. They view the paltry (and declining) benefits of employer-provided health insurance, the increasingly only affordable and accessible kind before ACA to be a form of indentured servitude, a means by which employees can be treated as chattel who have no other choice but to accept whatever scraps their plutocratic masters deign to give them.

      The single thing they hate the most and why they don’t just demand tax cuts and ACA repeal be forgotten is the fact American citizens began to get used to the idea that healthcare ought to be a basic human right.

      But yeah, tax cuts are connected to this repeal demand.

      • ZRAinSWVA

        When a large percentage of people around me are saying, I would like to retire, but I cannot afford health insurance–and my employer is actually one of the few bastions that actually still offer a pension!!–well, they’ve got the noose tight around our necks.

        • Chucktech

          The corollary to that was Republican liars bleating about the loss of jobs under Obamacare that were, actually, people being able to quit their jobs because they no longer had to rely on their employers for health insurance.

          • jerry

            And jobs actually went up, particularly in the healthcare fields.

    • Christopher Street

      This might be fueled by the desire for tax cuts but make no mistake, cutting healthcare is about healthcare.

        • Cuberly

          Last week there were a slew of pro-trump trolls chastising critics of the ACA repeal. One of their frequently used rants was that Cassidy is a Dr. They’d trust a Dr. more than they’d trust a Democrat on deciding healthcare policy.

          It was a pathetic line but it was peppered all over.

      • Furface

        So were Mengele, Duvalier, and Guevara.

    • Treant

      Of course. Why don’t they restrict healthcare in general to bleeding, leeches, and laudanum by law?

      Women don’t get the laudanum.

      • But men get Viagra and Cialis, guaranteed under the law.

        • Treant

          Well, duh, our lives end if we can’t have sex at least three times a day. You little ladies are supposed to scream when bringing forth children per Genesis, so no laudanum for you.

        • Cuberly

          Reminds me of a troll that defended the VA spending millions on viagra by saying ED was a medical condition but that pregnancy wasn’t.

            (He had to look up laudanum.)

          • Chucktech

            I was unfamiliar with the word “laudanum.”

    • They also want to make maternity and OB/GYN care optional for policies…meaning they’ll be dropped.

      I keep saying: They. Are. Not. Pro. Life.

      They do not care about the lives of women. They don’t even care whether the fetus within the compelled gestational vessel is as healthy as possible, or the baby resulting.

      They are Forced Pregnancy advocates. Shit like this only proves it.

      Reason? To re-subjugate women to 2nd class human status, permanently.

      • Daveed_WOW

        Correct. It’s a culture war. You are a target if you are not a straight white rich man.

      • Cuberly

        Almost every dominate issue in the GOP platform is abstracted. They’ll attach the words pro-life to something while they subtract the woman, the pregnancy, the potential complications, the care involved, the woman’s autonomy. The same with anti-lgbt, we’re disease spreaders, responsible for the decline of civilization. They’re sure not looking at us as human beings, they remove us from the equation.

        Heck the attacks against Hillz were hyper-exaggerated into the abstract where context and the laws were immaterial. It was obligatory to hate Hillz.

        I mean the GOP obstruction and trumpeting of repeal and replace when the last thing they intended was a viable replacement. Meanwhile Donnie claims care will be better, cheaper w/ no mandates, has no clue how to pull this magic trick and his cult could care less cuz this is a horse race in their mind. The people impacted, the economic consequences removed from the equation. Donnie winning is what matters.

        Sorry for the rant but I tend to look at the GOP as non-reality based. Every issue they touch is idealized into confusing, unworkable, removed from the real world constructs. But that’s what GOP voters want, abstractions to champion so they don’t have to think of the detrimental impact their madness has on the people, environment around them.

      It’s really tiring how often the Conservatists run to the “paid actor” meme whenever they encounter someone who disagrees with them. Likely because a) they have no empathy so cannot imagine anyone believing anything different and/or b) they’re too used to hiring people to harangue the opposition so antiConservatist protestors must be BSDI employees.

      How? He was banned from Twitter for life.

    The one and only public hearing, from the Fucking Finance Committee, BEFORE the CBO releases their scoring! Considering the timing and last night’s changes to the bill, I’m not sure that the protesters prevented any meaningful feedback, but did manage to reinforce bad visuals on the GOP.

      It’s a pity vision coverage isn’t being debated as part of CG.

    So anyone still think Mary Landrieu was just as bad as Bill Cassidy?

    • joe ho

      Bernie or Busters and Green Partiers surely do.

      Wait until 8:00pm before being certain of that.

      • FelineMama

        Yea, Clay, Tru Dat. I forget about Time Zones & the Tweeter in Chief!!!

    When does the CBO score get released? Tomorrow morning?

    • billbear1961

      They’ve already said they can’t have a complete study done for some weeks.

      What will be released is a partial score based on what was presented BEFORE the changes.

  • billbear1961

    The callous shamelessness of unmitigated GREED!

    O/T I cannot think of a reasonable way for it to happen. I think however, the GOP should be examined , investigatated and show just cause to the American public why they should be able to hold rights to a political party.By this I mean a political party that cooperates and plays by the rules. The DNC is held to a strict code of ethics and behaviour. Their performance is checked by close scrutiny The GOP apparently are not. They run amok They run roughshod , They change the rules, game by game. Lies, cheating, are the common levers that they employ They should be held accountable and be forced to adopt the same rules that they insist their compatriots have to live by

    • billbear1961

      Their ruthless disregard for the public good, their flagrant, year-long act of SEDITION refusing to allow hearings for ANY nominee of Obama’s to replace Scalia on the Court, their refusal to hold Dump accountable for his relentless lying, his graft, his hate-mongering and his obstruction of justice–his undermining of the rule of law–call the entire party’s legitimacy into question.

      • JWC

        Billbear yes ALL any any are and would be reason enough to have this party held accountable They are and do not act in the general best interest of America

      Lawsuit if it passes!

      • Cuberly

        It’s almost incomprehensible how bad the GOP is at legislation. When you think it can’t be more incoherent or even fucking illegal…wait a minute, they’ll outdo themselves.

  • Rocco

    Perfect! You couldn’t ask for a better snippet for campaign ad against him. Hopefully this will also be used to discredit Chumpcare. Lol & smh…so typical..

    Many of us in Louisiana are horribly ashamed of Cassidy. I dream of a world where most voters are smart.

    • Jukesgrrl

      As if Diaper Dave Vitter wasn’t enough of an embarrassment for you.

      • Helen Damnation™

        Ooh don’t say his name again; he just might be back.

    O/T I hope this means Joe Arpaio and all Trump pardon recipients are banned worldwide, too.

    • I can’t see Arpaio being much of a traveling fella.

  • Richard

    The first of the death panels…… Republican politicians don’t give a rats ass about the sick and disabled.

  • Ok, its time for women to stand up and fight back. They need to take the GOP to court in each state for discrimination on the basis of their sex. By shutting down birth control, closing abortion clinics, and allowing rape kits to sit for years untouched in police lockers is pure discrimination.

  • They don’t even feel a need to pretend with all that “compassionate conservative” bullshit any more. Sure some pundits will tsk tsk but they’ll vote Republican anyway. And the base LOVES shit like this. Compassion is for snowflake libtards!

    What a photo. I guess it’s exhausting to shaft so many of one’s fellow citizens in one bill.

    • FelineMama

      Yes, and seemingly so hard to “get-er” done!!

  • leastyebejudged

    The French had the right idea, that’s all I’m gonna say.

  • Tempus Fuggit

    Senators reacted angrily, aghast and nonchalant

    One of those adjectives is not like the others; one of those adjectives does not quite belong.
