Comment Archives: stories: News & Opinion: The Skinny

Re: “The Skinny

There is a common thread on this rag to advise people to "stop watching Fox News," which I find ridiculous. In case you hadn't noticed, just yesterday, the New York Times, NBC, ABC, MSNBC and CNN had to apologize for misleading the American people on collusion between the current President and Russia regarding the 2016 election. It appears that none of it was true. The only one that hadn't reported it? Fox News.

What facts have you withheld?

McSally has a D- on immigration.... but she doesn't mind if it's a D-, just not a C or a B. She needs that D next to her name.

Re: “The Skinny

Being the ONLY Arizona Congressperson to vote the Trump Agenda 100% of the time does make her "Trump's twin". But she tells nobody (unless it suits her fundraising purposes) her opinion before a vote. Her staffers (in my experience) say 100% of the time that she hasn't made a statement on an upcoming vote, or they haven't had a chance to speak with her. This includes yesterday morning hours before the HR 10 vote. This is NO way to do the job of representing constituents in the legislature.

Patty G -
Wake up...Neither Obama nor the ACA destroyed your health plan. Losing your health insurance was the result of one of two things: 1) your plan was substandard (meaning that the insurance company was screwing you big time for next-to-no coverage) or 2) it's the result of the GOP deliberately pulling the rug out from under the insurers through Little Marco Rubio's rule to de-fund high risk insurance pools. #2 is the REAL reason for the 'failure' of the ACA.
Stop watching FOX Fake News and you might learn some truths.

Re: “The Skinny

Don't take everything so personally, Martha! It's not you we hate; it's just everything you represent. It's your selfish greed and disinterest in the people of this country. Remember the main idea? You're supposed to help people, not kill them by eliminating their healthcare. You and your ignorant ilk need to retire from 'leadership.' You're not up to the task.

Re: “The Skinny

What a bunch of monkey see monkey do's in here. By the jest of the comments you want to be conjouled and pampered like a bunch of civil servants trying to find validation their your position. To all of these patrons of progressive ideology. The burden to make the Government solvent has been put upon the next administration as always. I has became much to obvious the beast has exceed the burden. I would much rather have McSally in Washington working in committees and with lobbyists than these small minded egotists that are commenting as monkey see monkey do.

Re: “The Skinny

Tsk, tsk, it's never fun when you are on the defensive. Wonder why she never thought of that?

Re: “The Skinny

According to McSally, it's not *her* performance dragging her numbers down. Oh no! It's undeserved, misdirected disapproval of Trump. So it's Trump's fault -- couldn't possibly have anything to do with her.

What nonsense!

Re: “The Skinny

She talks to her real constituents, rich bankers.
And forget about the actual voters.

I think it's time for her to start looking for a new job.

Re: “The Skinny

If Martha McSally does not want to be tarred with the same brush as Donald Trump, she should take a stand against him. As is, she has one of the worst environmental voting records in the entire House and she wants to undermine the protections put in place to avoid another financial meltdown.
I hope voters do turn her out of office if she continues on this path.

Re: “The Skinny

The time to try to distance yourself from Trump was back in July once Trump won the nomination. But that would have taken courage; something I fear she lacks. Although she practically threatened my group who met with her in February saying that she isn't afraid of anything. She might have the kind of fearlessness that comes with handling a killing machine, but I'm not sure that courage translates in her case. Anyway, it's too late now. She's stuck with him like that Cheeto cheese that sticks to your fingers that you can't get off.

Re: “The Skinny

Dodd Frank? The two so named really say it all. Dodd received sweetheart loan deals from his friend at Countrywide.

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/25140560/ns/politics-capitol_hill/t/sens-conrad-dodd-got-special-mortgage-deals/#.WTnfsKrQe70

And Barney Frank?

"The reality is that Frank, the powerful chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, has been embroiled in two of the largest financial scandals in recent history. The first is the collapse of government-sponsored Fannie Mae and Freddie Mack, which triggered the nations financial crisis. Judicial Watch obtained internal government documents proving that members of Congress, including and perhaps especially Frank, were well aware that Fannie and Freddie were in deep trouble due to corruption and incompetence and yet they did nothing to stop it.

Judicial Watch also obtained internal documents from the Treasury Department that prove Frank helped steer $12 million in federal bailout funds to a Boston bank (OneUnited) that eventually got shut down by the government. Frank intervened on behalf of his equally corrupt friend, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who held shares in the failing bank that also listed her husband (Sidney Williams) as a board member."

These are your " protectors?" How did this come to be?

Re: “The Skinny

Wow, I didn't think I could detest this McSally creature even more, but after her "oh poor me" routine, I do. Yes Trump is an infantile imbecile who shouldn't be within light years of the WH, and we are now, to our detriment, seeing exactly why.....but this McSally creature lays all of the blame for her fear over her re-election at his feet.....never mind her "let's get this fucking thing done" attitude towards lopping tens of millions of people off of health insurance, and her overall general bs right wing stand on the issues.....such as with Dodd Frank. She is going down to defeat next year, along with scores of other scum bag Republicans, and yes some of that can be attributed to having an R after her name and standing by a very unpopular treasonous lunatic President, but much of it is because, well, she's just being her bitch self.
